    Poop-Covered Sidewalks: Racially Insensitive to Clean Them Says Seattle Councilman | National Review

    A councilman in Seattle is reportedly opposed to hosing sidewalks that reek of excrement near a local courthouse because he fears that it might be racially insensitive.

    No, this is not a joke.

    The area surrounding King County Superior Court includes a homeless shelter and other social-services organizations and has become an “unsanitary and potentially frightening” scene — one “that reeks of urine and excrement” — according to an article in the Seattle Times. Desperate for help with the disgusting environment, two of the court’s judges have asked the city to please power-wash the poop-covered sidewalks. That seems like a pretty reasonable request, but apparently, one councilman is worried that doing so might be a form of microaggression.

    According to the Times, Councilmember Larry Gossett “said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”

    Democrats are insane.How dare you clean shit off the sidewalks you racist.

    Solution: make that councilman sit on the curb to eat his lunches.

    This councilman's objection to fundamental sanitation is a clear reflection of a categorical mentality, one which manifests the combined effects of a collective psychological disorder and deplorable stupidity.

    Dafuck does this 'story' have to do with freaking political parties?

    ---- or with "Liberalism"?

    Or with "the left"?

    ZERO of which are described, hinted at, euphemized or implied in the article anywhere.

    Hm?

    Critical thinking is a lost art.
