What Was I Thinking?
Here's what Tinpot Newsom actually said:
"I can't for the life of me sit back and roll over on this. We will absolutely defend the rights of the housing authority."
Again, I wish I was making this up.
I guess that's what the good "progressives" of San Francisco look for in a leader, someone willing to stand up and fight for the "rights" of bureaucratic government agencies, and protect those rights from being infringed upon by a bunch of meddling, second-class citizens.
So what if some of those citizens end up getting their heads beaten in by pipe-wielding bigots? This is about principles, dammit!
