ME, ME, ME.
Three of the top stories in today’s American edition of the Daily Mail offer outsiders a glimpse of the mindset of the retarded citizens of the People’s Republic of Oakland California.
It’s really quite amusing to watch liberals turning on liberals in the wake of the Ghost Ship (Rave Cave) fire that roasted 36 hipsters to death over the weekend.
Fury has been turned toward the mystery meat (allegedly Puerto Rican) creator of the enclave housing degenerates that the press calls the Ghost Ship.
Daily Mail on Derrick Ion Amena
The man who ran the artist enclave that went up in flames on Friday night has spoken out about the tragedy that has claimed at least 36 lives and says he believes he is being unfairly blamed.
Derick Ion Almena, 46, and his wife Micah Allison, 40, spoke through tears about the aftermath of the warehouse fire in an interview with NBC Nightly News.
Almena said that he ‘can’t explain who I am anymore’.
He posed a rhetorical question: ‘Do I take blame or responsibility for this?’ as he dropped his head and refused to answer.
Uhhh, yes you do take blame for it, Derrick. Now that a criminal investigation has begun and because your fellow hipsters have turned against you, you’re going to be going to prison. Better start showing some remorse, pal.
Derrick’s wife, Micah, pictured below, is also likely to be criminally charged.
OK, let’s turn away from the narcissist and his excuses, which are detailed in the DM’s story, to a second story in the DM that focuses on hipster outrage toward Oakland’s Jewish woman mayor. The Communist follower of California’s nutty governor, Jerry Brown, is confronted with childish adults who are pissed that there are no “safe spaces” in life.
Daily Mail story on Mayor Libby Schaaf
The mayor of Oakland was booed and jeered at a vigil last night for those who died in the warehouse fire after being accused of ‘victim blaming’.
Hundreds of people gathered for the candle-light vigil in Oakland’s Lake Merrit to honour the 36 people who died in the blaze at an artists’ enclave.
Those in the crowd were seen embracing as well as laying floral tributes and chanting aloud the names of people they lost in the inferno.
Fake, phony togetherness: Exactly what you expect from liberals!
Schaaf had already come under fire as previous speakers at the vigil had urged the city of Oakland to protect ‘warehouse’ residences where some people have apparently been forced to live due to skyrocketing housing prices.
The memorial briefly turned into a political confrontation when Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf began to address the crowd as was booed. She is pictured at the warehouse on Sunday
She had also been criticized for emphasizing the warehouse’s code violations in the immediate aftermath of the fire instead of addressing the need for affordable housing.
And as she began addressing the vigil, NBC reported that some started shouting ‘stop victim blaming’ and ‘step down’ as she took the microphone.
This lead to one of the vigil organizers having to step in to ask people to be respectful.
But Schaaf said: ‘It’s OK. It’s OK. This city is going to go through a lot of emotions, and one of those is anger, and that is my job to hear that.
‘As we move forward right now, our focus has to be on those who we know are lost and those we are going to learn have been lost,’ she said, according to NBC.
But after she resumed her speech, which was captured on camera, the crowd shouted her down once again, hurling a barrage of abuse at her.
Schaaf, a Democrat, was elected mayor of Oakland in November 2014 after being endorsed by Governor of California Jerry Brown.
Decades of high taxes and liberal Democrat rule have made the cost of living in California high. Expecting a liberal democrat to fix that is borderline clinical insanity.
One wag wrote in the Dm comments that Schaaf is a Nancy Pelosi in the making.
Her drug addled constituents, infected with Marxist ideology, are going to prove too much for her to govern. The whole damn state is bankrupt because of these idiots, which is another story.
Every moron in that artist’s fire trap that was roasted knew the danger, but was too drugged out to care.
Finally, another leftist theme is emerging. The lazy bums who call themselves artists as they scratch out a living blame gentrification for the fire.
Daily Mail story on hipster thinking
One of the last people to escape the deadly fire that killed at least 36 people in an Oakland warehouse says that gentrification is to blame.
The artist, Bob Mule, tearfully told NBC Bay Area on Monday that the high cost of rent in the city is leaving the hipster community with fewer outlets of creative expression.
‘I think this has a lot to do with the gentrification issue in the city,’ he said.
‘Us artists are forced to live in these spaces. We do it because we have nowhere else affordable to create.
‘We need more help. We need more of a voice in the city as artists because we are a very important part of this culture that’s being pushed out of the city.’
F*ck you Bob. Get a job.
Other people roll their asses out of bed early each A.M. and this guy wants those people to support him and his pathetic excuse for art that is typical hipster.
Hipsters are a waste. Since no one with any sense wants their “art,” they sell drugs and steal to have a bit of money to spend–on more drugs.
Send them all to work camps. In work, there is joy and freedom.
