Dr. Drew predicts major epidemic in filthy Los Angeles this summer

The filthy conditions of Democrat-run U.S. cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles are so alarming that even the New York Times is acknowledging that fact.

On May 22, 2019, the New York Times published an op/ed, “America’s Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals,” by the paper’s opinion columnist Farhad Manjoo, calling “progressives” hypocrites for abandoning “progressive values in their own backyards”. (H/t FOTM reader Big Lug)

Manjoo writes:

When the cost of living is taken into account, billionaire-brimming California ranks as the most poverty-stricken state, with a fifth of the population struggling to get by. Since 2010, migration out of California has surged.

The basic problem is the steady collapse of livability. Across my home state, traffic and transportation is a developing-world nightmare. Child care and education seem impossible for all but the wealthiest. The problems of affordable housing and homelessness have surpassed all superlatives — what was a crisis is now an emergency that feels like a dystopian showcase of American inequality….

Manjoo then describes the “unlivable” conditions in San Francisco, which he calls “Nancy Pelosi’s city”. It’s a city of stark contrasts of great wealth and squalor, where one of every 11,600 residents is a billionaire, yet “the streets there are a plague of garbage and needles and feces,” and homeless veterans eke out a living surviving on trash from billionaires’ mansions. But the city’s heartless rich actually are crowdfunding a legal effort against a proposed homeless shelter by claiming the shelter to be an environmental hazard.

400 miles south of San Francisco is the Democrat-run and equally unlivable Los Angeles — California’s biggest city and the second largest U.S. city in population, numbering 4 million.

A news video from NBC4 LA describes the atrocious conditions in Los Angeles (h/t DCG’s “Liberal utopia of Los Angeles: Rotting trash and rat infestation fuels health concerns“):

  • Hundreds of filthy homeless encampments where people live in piles of garbage.
  • Streets even in downtown L.A. littered with piles of rotting garbage uncollected in weeks, even months, infested with rats and disease-carrier fleas.
  • Orkin pest control ranks L.A. as the second most rat-infested city in the U.S. (Atlanta, Georgia is the first), but the L.A. city government has no program, like that in New York city and Washington, DC, to control the ever-growing rat population.
  • Last fall, fleas infected with typhus were found on rescue dogs in L.A. animal shelters.

The Calcutta-like conditions of Los Angeles prompted famous TV addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky to predict a major infectious disease epidemic this summer, putting at risk thousands of lives.

On Thursday, May 23, on Fox News Radio’s Brian Kilmeade Show, Dr. Pinsky said:

I live in the great state of California, the utopia that is California, which is a nightmare. I want to give you a prediction here. There will be a major infectious disease epidemic this summer in Los Angeles.

We have tens and tens of thousands of people living in tents. Horrible conditions. Sanitation. Rats have taken over the city. We’re the only city in the country, Los Angeles, without a rodent control program. We have multiple rodent-borne, flea-borne illnesses, plague, typhus. We’re gonna have louse-borne illness. If measles breaks into that population, we have tuberculosis exploding. Literally, our politicians are like Nero. It’s worse than Nero.

It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in my life. I feel like I’m on a train track waving at the train and the train is going to go off the bridge. The bridge is out.

Here’s what I want to do, I want to take away qualified immunity from the politicians so we can go after them for reckless negligence.

The Los Angeles city government consists of:

  • Mayor Eric Garcetti, Democrat.
  • City Attorney Mike Feuer, Democrat.
  • City Controller Ron Galperin, Democrat.
  • City Council: 14 of the 15 City Council members are Democrat (the remaining member is Republican).

The San Francisco city government consists of:

  1. No comments yet? I know Jim has a ton of people that follow his work. What’s up with zero comments? I took an RV trip through San Francisco in 2010. I saw the homeless problem back then, in 9 years it’s exponentially worse. You simply must see the film Seattle is Dying. Superbly shows the problem and finds the solution in Providence, RI and their approach to solving drug addiction related crime. Criminals with 85 arrests and still on the street in Seattle having nervous breakdowns and drug induced meltdowns right next to a family waiting for a bus. The police are demoralized by the lack of will to enforce laws by the City Council and Court systems. Film link… for must see documentary…

    The west coast was the focus of this story. Turning to the east coast it’s liberals turning Baltimore into a shithole as well. My hometown of Balitimore had a liberal black female Mayor talk about the rioters with the pithy phrase ‘space was given to destroy’ at a press conference. It was the most irresponsible thing I’ve ever heard a public offiical utter. This was throwing dynamtite in the fire. It basically put a stamp of approval on riots as a valid form of free expression. Please watch the short clip and ask how this person kept her job after such a gaff…

    After this chick split, Baltimore elects another liberal black female and she disappears under a cloud of suspician after being raided by the Feds. Here’s that link

    Last time I went back to Baltimore, I took the direct way from Map Quest instead of the roundabout one on the beltway. That seemed like a near fatal mistake as I stopped at a red light surrounded by other cars. A kid was ready to just grab my mountain bike off the roof rack. I felt like raw meat in the jungle. I was so glad when the light turned green. As I emerged out of the Hood, it was like coming out of another realm. The difference was ony 100 feet. That our society created places like South Monroe shows the moral decay of America. They getrified Baltimore’s inner harbor area and 5 blocks away it’s another dimension of scary, never going out after dark gang land. That’s part of the problem, the city does nothing to resurect the Hood. Please keep shopping and going to Orioles and Ravens games.
