Democrat-controlled regions of the country are anything but Utopias.
As a leading Blue State, California has been devolving into a crime-ridden cesspool over the past couple of years and Governor Gavin Newsom getting the blame for a lot of the state’s struggles.
Democrat Gavin Newsom got caught off-guard by a homeless man and you won’t believe what happened next.
California has been going downhill fast during Gavin Newsom’s tenure.
From massive blackouts to crippling taxes, there’s a mass exodus of the state’s affluent population, abandoning cities like San Francisco and L.A. for more conservative areas of the country like Texas.
Nowhere are California’s problems seen as clearly as in the Golden State’s severe homelessness problem, with cities like L.A. and San Francisco facing the brunt of the issue.
The state has the most people living on the streets in the country.
It’s common to walk down any given block in San Francisco and find drug addicts’ discarded needles, used condoms, and human feces littering the sidewalk.
And as a result, crime and mental health problems are on the rise in the state.
“Sometimes it can feel like driving through the Great Depression. Only, it’s Southern California in the year 2021.”
The numbers are staggering—right now, over 66,000 people are experiencing homelessness in L.A. County.
That’s more than a sold out Dodger Stadium.

Unsurprisingly, Democrat Gavin Newsom has done little to actually help these people get back on their feet and off the streets, he just panders to his far-left base that would rather just provide the homeless with free, “safe” drugs.
But on his recent visit to Oakland, CA, karma hit Gavin Newsom right in the face.
He was approached by a homeless man.
Seconds later, the man chucked a full water bottle at the governor, smacking Newsom right in his face.
Apparently, that’s about the only way a vagrant gets arrested in Democrat strongholds, as the man was promptly thrown in cuffs and charged for assault.
California Highway Patrol released a statement about the incident, stating “This morning, the Governor was approached by an aggressive individual. Members of the Governor’s security detail removed the Governor from the situation and the individual was arrested by CHP officers.”
You have to wonder how many of the few remaining level-headed Californians quietly questioned why it was only the first time someone did what this homeless guy did to Newsom.
