Newell: San Francisco at it again - I’ll pass on Woke-topia

San Francisco continues their journey to Woketopia, whether their citizens agreed to the journey or not. This is what they woke up to - and they may want to go back to sleep - but we all better keep one eye open on these developments.

San Francisco now has more drug users than public high school students!  Drug users 24,500; public high schoolers 16,500.  Yes, that’s right - how do we know?  Well, when they woke up, they found their Woketopian tour guides, otherwise known as the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, handed out 5.8 million syringes last year - for free. That’s 500,000 more than the previous year. 

They also spent $1.8 million a year on needle cleanup. That’s city workers scouring the streets picking up discarded syringes on sidewalks and streets.  Not an easy job considering the fact that there are tents, makeshift housing, human feces, urine and disease to work your way around to retrieve those syringes. 

Are you woke yet?  Well, rub the sleep from your eyes - there’s more.

The tour guides (San Francisco Board of Supervisors), while continuing their journey through Woketopia, decided that our language, yep - the way we speak - is too harsh.  When you are “woke” you must address those that have perpetrated horrendous crimes on you or your community in a more sensitive way so they may more easily shed the “Scarlet Letter” from their despicable acts.  So, here’s the new, more appropriate descriptions.

Convicted felons are now 'formerly incarcerated persons' or 'justice involved persons.'

Juvenile delinquents are now 'young persons with justice system involvement' or 'young persons impacted by the juvenile justice system.' 

Now, keep in mind, this is the first cut.  I guess we will call a murderer an 'end of life facilitator.'  

No thanks!  I’ll stick with murderer, criminal, thug, dregs of society - a total waste. 

If I lived in San Francisco, I’d fire the tour guides.
