My, how things have changed in three decades.
Let’s hear from Jesse Jackson today, talking about 1982, you know, back before you were born:
“Ed Lee stood with immigrants, seniors and tenants to protect them from deportation, wage theft and eviction.”
All right. Now, I don’t know, some people deserve to get deported and/or evicted, it all depends.
But nobody deserves wage theft, right?
And yet, what do you call this? (So we should have HSCO / Healthy San Francisco money go back to companies and restaurants and whathaveyou because that’s what the companies and restaurants want? Apparently.)
And Ed Lee “stood with tenants,” back in the day? All right, Jessie, but what about now? What about this? Is Ed Lee now, as the article suggests, the “preferred candidate for landlords” and those who “run tenants out” of San Francisco apartments? Well, yes, obviously. Who else, among the major candidates, could fit this description?
I mean, is there any conservative group / institution / political party / whatever in San Francisco what doesn’t support Ed Lee for Mayor?
And yet, there’s Jessie in there, chanting the mantra: ED LEE Gets It Done:
So, say it, Jessie:
I, Jesse Jackson, join with the San Francisco Republican Party* to offer my support for the election of Ed Lee as Mayor of San Francisco.
