The owner of the vacant Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown Hotel opened its doors last week as a sanctuary for people trying to avoid the Black Lives Matter riots, to include left-wing activists and the homeless.The hotel, which was heavily damaged during the riots, quickly became a homeless commune and community organizers launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise well over $100,000, with carloads of other donations pouring in, the Star Tribune reported.But those who took refuge, reportedly over 200 people, are now being kicked to the curb as they’ve turned the hotel into a shantytown

One of my customers is a hotel in a NE state, who, due to COVID-19, got a contract with the government to house homeless folks. Everytime I talk with him, he tells me of another room that was ransacked. They drained their swimming pool and locked the pool and excercise rooms for safety reasons.

I remember well the Occupy Wall Street hustle of several years ago; I hiked through the downtown San Diego "enclave" a few times weekly. I like to keep in touch and it was on my usual urban hiking trail anyway. It was basically another wasted clot of odious human garbage doing what human garbage always does -- which is why it didn't last very long. Sooner rather than later city guys in HAZMAT suits moved in and steamed the joint; the garbage faded to wherever they came from and that was that. I suggest the Fed allow the "protesters" to play their game for awhile. Local and state government are worthless in Washington State to the point of whimsy; sooner or later reality will waft in with the scent of uncollected garbage. Outside funding exists, no doubt about that and the sources and pockets are deep. But it always comes down to the clodhoppers trying to run the show and they always fail. Ambulance chasers and leftist mammon can only take them so far. It still comes down to dope, wrecked brains and broken compasses and it always will. Let 'em go for awhile. They'll face-plant into their own piss-puddle soon enough.

I went back and looked at stories about this hotel from a week ago. All noble and back-patting reports of the vacant hotel being a 'sanctuary for the unsheltered'. Seven days later and the whole place is trashed.

My, who could have seen this coming? Actually, this sort of thing is getting fun to watch. The "woke" come up with a stupid idea and hilarity ensues when it fails miserably. Who pays for this mess anyway? The taxpayer would be my guess. My advice to young people with long lives ahead of them is to move away. Move to small towns and cities in the West, Midwest, or South. Sadly, old folks with limited means are unable to move. The Dem run big cities are quickly turning into Detroits. Move if you can.

The squatters will probably declare the building an Autonomous Zone. Then they will hold a meeting and decide evictions violate human rights.

You would have to be a complete idiot not to think that the entire hotel would not be trashed. Do you think that the hotel’s insurance carrier will pay for the damage, think again, you can bet that there is an insurance policy exception that exempts urban unrest as a covered peril. That’s also a big reason why a lot of the burned out, looted, and destroyed businesses that served the low income and minority “communities” where the rioting took place will not be coming back. It is now being reported that the Minneapolis City Council voted today to abolish the city police department. Without even the possibility of police protection, there will be no insurance for businesses there, and very few commercial businesses are going to put their assets and property at risk of again being destroyed in another riot that could commence again upon the slightest pretext.

Anybody who still wonders why some vacant hotels turned down city requests to rent rooms from them for sheltering homeless during the covid crisis need only read this story. Much the same fate befell the homes given in SF's much-ballyhooed "care, not cash" initiative a few years ago. People who insisted that the only reason people were homeless was that they didn't have a home were dismayed to find that many of the homes they gave to homeless became uninhabitable in fairly short order.

An entire SWAT team in Hallandale Beach, Florida resigned on Friday in response to Police Chief Sonia Quinones kneeling with Black Lives Matter protesters. The police chief scheduled a meeting for Monday with the officers who resigned to hear their complaints. In a memo, the SWAT officers said in addition to being under trained and minimally equipped, they were outraged to see the police chief kneeling with political activists. “The team is minimally equipped, under trained and often times restrained by the politicization of our tactics to the extent of placing safety of dogs over the safety of the team members,” the officers wrote.

One of the first articles I wrote for The Daily Wire was a typically optimistic and cheerful piece titled “The United States Of America No Longer Exists.” It was not met with a warm reception by many readers, who understandably found it to be a tad bleak. Three years later, it brings me no pleasure to say, “I told you so.” My basic thesis in that piece was that our country, though existing still as a legal and geographic entity, cannot be meaningfully described as “united.” We have nothing but the law and the land holding us together anymore.
