You won’t find a more liberal place in America than the state of California, and all the proof you need of such a claim is contained within most of its major cities.Gun laws are super strict in many areas, especially San Francisco where there’s only one major gun shop in the whole city.
Since the overwhelming majority of California is über progressive, it’s not shocking to see corruption and hypocrisy oozing out of every nook and cranny, with the latest example coming out of the city of Malibu.Malibu recently decided to become a sanctuary city, which is hilarious given the fact the area is super wealthy and the majority of illegals staying there are probably employed as those folks’ estate staff.
You probably get where this is going.According to The Los Angeles Times, The discussion inside Malibu City Hall over whether to become a sanctuary city last week bore the usual hallmarks of the heated national debate over illegal immigration.
While some residents praised the proposal, others blamed those who are in the country illegally for crime and called the move a thinly disguised rebuke of President Trump.
But it being Malibu, there was a celebrity twist. The idea was inspired by one of the town’s many famous residents: actor Martin Sheen. In December, he grabbed the lectern during a City Council meeting and — as if conjuring his inner President Josiah Bartlet from “The West Wing” — urged the city to become a sanctuary city.Like many sanctuary city resolutions, Malibu’s is largely symbolic. Backers said the move, which passed on a 3-2 council vote, is a chance for Malibu’s privileged to stand up for the city’s vulnerable population.
Malibu is about 92 percent white and one of L.A. County’s wealthiest cities. Everyone agrees the city has workers who are not authorized to be in the United States, and they tend to serve the food at upscale eateries, clean the beachside mansions, look after children and keep the landscaping looking lush.
“When I reached out to some of the people at the schools and other people in the community, they told me people are scared,” said Councilwoman Laura Rosenthal, who proposed the ordinance after hearing Sheen speak. “That’s people coming into Malibu who may be undocumented. I wanted to send a clear message that we are here for you.”
Only about 6 percent of Malibu is Latino, according to the 2010 census. Rosenthal said officials at the Boys & Girls Club told her there are nearly 80 children in the local schools who in the country illegally or whose parents are here illegally.But residents say a good chunk of the service workforce is Latino. And at least some of those people are in the United States illegally. Rosenthal said it’s a well-known fact around town, one rarely talked about — even at last week’s council meeting.
So, it seems the real reason the folks of Malibu want to keep illegals in the city isn’t as a means of helping these poor souls live in freedom and find a way to make better lives for themselves, but to keep the service industries running smoothly.
And of course they’re not offering to tear down any of THEIR walls.
Isn’t that just a tad bit, you know, “racist?”
Oh, that’s right. It’s only racist if it’s conservatives acting in such a manner. A bunch of spoiled, rich leftists can pretty much get away with murder from the press and other liberals since they at least “believe” the right things.
If that isn’t the very definition of hypocrisy, what is?
