Liberal Civil War in San Francisco: Immigrants And Hipsters Attack Tech Workers
By Brenda Walker on May 9, 2014
may-day-2014Progressives in San Francisco are at war with themselves as anti-free market activists and immigrants are attacking – sometimes physically – the liberal but mostly white tech industry which funds the city. And though the rhetoric of the battle focuses on class, much of the conflict is being driven by the anti-white animus of Open Borders activists.

The hard Left in San Francisco is a mixture of anti-capitalist and anti-white sentiment. Thus, the demonstrators at May Day in the City by the Bay were not grizzled American workers fighting for high wages, but ethnic activists dressed like Aztecs and demanding amnesty. A poster for the day’s events, half in Spanish, pictured anti-American activists blocking a deportation bus. [Happy May Day, San Francisco, by Steven Jones, SF Gate, May 1, 2014] Mercifully, they limited themselves to blocking traffic, rather than the traditional Aztec practice of human sacrifice. [S.F. May Day rally ends with arrests, by Kale Williams, SF Gate, May 2, 2014]

Even by San Francisco standards, politics are growing dangerously unstable, and racial divisions driven by mass immigration are not helping. The 2008 recession struck California particularly hard, with double-digit unemployment lasting over four years in the recent downturn. San Francisco has been able to survive the downturn because of the tech industry, which is leading the state’s recovery. [California’s economic recovery uneven, with coastal areas leading rebound, by George Avalos, Oakland Tribune, December 5, 2013] This allows the liberal suits who run the sanctuary city to taxes on pet projects like outreach to illegals.

Unfortunately, the flip side of both population and economic growth is an increase in housing and rent costs. A 2012 survey found that the city had the highest rents in the country. [San Francisco Rents the Highest of Any City in Country, by Aaron Sankin, Huffington Post, March 14, 2012] Tech workers are a big reason for this increase, with the industry largely responsible for driving up annual rents by “12.3%, to a median of $3, 350 a month.” [“Tech workers squeezing out renters in San Francisco, Seattle, by Les Christie, CNN Money, February 7, 2014]

The center of the emerging conflict between the tech industry and rents is the Mission District, known for being both Hispanic and hipster. As one map shows, bakeries and cupcake stories overlap with the gang territory of Sureños and Norteños. [Guerilla cartographers map Mission’s unseen world, by Jennifer Wadsworth, SF Gate, August 2, 2013] The gangs occasionally shoot at each other , which adds to the area’s unique atmosphere. [“Daytime Shootings Shake Up 24th St,” by Rigoberto Hernandez, MissionLocal, July 27, 2012] MS-13 also claims space around 20th and Mission. [“Latest News Months-Long MS-13 Gang Murder Trial Winds Down In San Francisco,” CBS, August 8, 2011]

Thus, some residents might be tempted to accept large offers to move out, while developers are looking to transform the neighborhood into a mecca for tech workers. [S.F. landlords offer tenants tempting offers to move out, By Joe Garofoli, San Francisco Chronicle, April 13, 2014.] Of course, some activists are opposed to replacing gangs with Dilberts if it means that “the city’s colorful neighborhoods, like the Mission, are at risk of losing their character.” [“Backlash by the Bay: Tech Riches Alter a City,” by Eric Goode and Claire Cain Miller, New York Times, November 24, 2013]

Though these activists would be opposed to the government using force to enforce immigration law, San Francisco liberals are quite happy to take the law into their own hands to protect “their” neighborhood. One activity that got the desired media attention was blocking Google buses, the private shuttles that carry tech workers to their jobs in Silicon Valley. A bunch of activists would descend upon a bus as it picked up workers for a cushy commute and block it from leaving, while holding signs like “Stop Displacement Now” and “Warning: Two-Tier System.” [Protesters block Google bus in S.F. Mission, By Ellen Huet, SFGate blog, December 9, 2013]

Over in the East Bay a few days later, a bus was vandalized with a window broken and tires slashed [Google shuttle bus vandalized in Oakland, By Katie Nelson, San Jose Mercury, December 21, 2013].

This violence is coupled with the Alinsky tactic of “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Tech workers and those who rent to them are the target. For example,

“Jack Halprin, a landlord in the city’s gentrifying Mission district, became the focus of the latest blockade of a tech company commuter bus, with protesters demanding Google ask Halprin to rescind eviction notices he has sent his tenants.

Protesters told Reuters they will increasingly target individuals as part of a strategy to draw attention to the growing divide between rich and poor in San Francisco, a rift widened by a tech industry boom that is inflating rents and exacerbating social problems such as evictions.”

[Individuals targeted as San Francisco tech money protests intensify, by Sarah McBride, Reuters, April 11, 2014]
Apparently it’s no longer safe to be perceived as a tech worker in San Francisco.

Another hostile incident was the car tipping of four smart vehicles that occurred early April 7:

Police seek suspects, motive in Smart car vandalism , by Claudia Cowan, Fox video, April 9, 2014

Reporter Claudia Cowen: “All the cars vandalized within 10 blocks of each other in a neighborhood like so many here in San Francisco has seen rents soar as highly paid tech workers move in displacing thousands of low and middle income families. Along with rallies fighting the evictions, there have been protests against the private buses that use public bus stops to shuttle Google employees down to Silicon Valley, some activists say the attacks on the progressive little smart cars might be an extension of that, perhaps an indication tensions are boiling over.”

Roberto Hernandez, Tenants right activist: “The technology industry has been given tax breaks, they’ve been given carte blanche to San Francisco, so people are pissed off at how they’ve gotten all these giveaways, yet the people who live here have got nothing.”
On April 13, tech journalist Kyle Russell wrote his Google Glass was deliberately ripped off his face and smashed by a gentrification protestor on Mission Street [I Was Assaulted For Wearing Google Glass In The Wrong Part Of San Francisco, Business Insider].

On April 6 Digg founder and Google Ventures partner Kevin Rose was the victim of a protest at his house. [“Anarchists Picket Digg Founder’s House and Demand $3 billion for Anti-Capitalist Housing,” by Jim Edwards, Business Insider, April 6, 2014] The protesters tried to extort a $3 billion handout from Google so their group could “create autonomous, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist communities throughout the Bay Area” which would solve the housing crisis.

The protestors also printed up posters calling Rose a “parasite,” among other less flattering names and physical threats. They knocked on the door of Rose’s home on Potrero Hill and handed his wife a flyer while chanting, “Your bubble’s about to bust, your Google belongs to us.”

Needles to say, the city has done nothing in the face of this disorder. Mayor Ed Lee is torn by his desire for lots of tax money from the flourishing new businesses versus his background as a tenant lawyer in Chinatown. [A Mayor in the Middle of Two San Franciscos, by Norimitsu Onishi, New York Times, February 24, 2014] The mayor visits a different tech company every Tuesday to keep in touch with business needs, which makes him seem like a capitalist pig to the anarchists, while vaguely promising to build low-income housing.

The city’s Hispanic immigrant community is also fueling the unrest. One of the main organizers is Roberto Hernandez, a founder of Our Mission No Eviction and the subject of a puff piece by the San Francisco Chronicle. He brags about his lifetime of work organizing Latinos and defending his “barrio” from white interlopers who drive out Latino families. He’s a nativist—but the kind the media likes. [Meet the monarch of the Mission who’s fighting gentrification, by Suzanne Espinosa Solis, San Francisco Chronicle, April 27, 2014]

Ultimately, San Francisco shows the contradictions tearing away at the heart of the liberal coalition. Environmentally friendly, tech savvy liberals are suddenly finding themselves of the wrong side of the social justice scale. Ultimately, a business friendly economic and pro-technology economic agenda can’t be reconciled with the retrograde politics of grievance championed by the hard Left. San Francisco is already on the brink. If the city that gave us the Summer of Love gives us a Summer of Hate of riots and urban violence it will be the dream of the “permanent progressive majority” that goes up in smoke.

    “Liberal Civil War” what is it good for? Absolutely everything!

  2. It’s a shame that no one taught those bright tech industry workers about the relative thickness of blood and water.

    • Anon says:

      “Of course, some activists are opposed to replacing gangs with Dilberts if it means that ‘the city’s colorful neighborhoods, like the Mission, are at risk of losing their character.'” – that ship sailed when the white working and middle class was driven out in the first place. Too bad they don’t have something like restrictive covenants to protect their communities anymore.

      Of course the supreme irony here is that hispanics depend on the very economic activity they say they want eliminated. Where do those tax dollars go?

    • Anon says:

      Sorry about the reply, as to your statement, they do understand this, and will have little trouble removing undesirable elements from their living space. the problem for America as a whole however is that they do not view their fellow countrymen as such.

  3. Erin says:

    A liberal friend of mine was mugged in that area a few weeks ago.. I’m glad she is ok. To be fair, she has been a loyal friend even when she didnt understand my views. Maybe she is beginning to understand now. I will let her come to her own conclusions and try not to rub her nose in it.

    • KO says:

      You can’t let people come to their own conclusions. They have too many excuses to just hold on to their former views. “It was my fault.” It was a chance event.” “They are victims too.” “They need more social services.” “They need more government investment in good-paying jobs.” Liberals would rather die — they would rather you die — than give up their liberalism. Look at the parents whose children have been sacrificed to Third World mayhem, yet make it their first priority to show people that they aren’t bigots!

      How do you get people to believe that the hostiles either don’t belong here, or need to be suppressed? It’s not easy, because their ideas of democracy and government don’t admit such policies. How about, Don’t you think we should just freeze immigration, until the economy is booming, and the people we already have are assimilated? I’m open to ideas. Persuading real libs is difficult, perhaps hopeless. Not a priority compared to those with common sense who are at the tipping point and are just waiting for an invitation.

    A mystic is one unbothered by contradictions. as contradictions exposed call for unpleasant remedies which crimp one’s hedonistic habits. Comfort zones tend to become Twilight Zones, with real hunger and bullets.

    “Last November I wrote a piece entitled “Is a new revolution quietly brewing in France?” in which I described struggle which was taking place between the French people and the Zionist plutocracy which has ruled France over the past decades (roughly since 1969) and today I am returning to this topic as events have rapidly accelerated and taken a sharp turn for the worse. A number of most interesting things have happened and the French “Resistance” (I will use this collective designator when speaking of the entire Dieudonne/Soral movement) is now being attacked on three levels”

    Great comment, TabuLa!

  10. Bad Mr. Frosty says:

    More liberal coalition cannibalism.

  11. William Bradford Shockley Jr was an American physicist and inventor. Along with John Bardeen and Walter Houser Brattain, Shockley co-invented the transistor, for which all three were awarded the 1956 Nobel Prize in Physics.

    Shockley’s attempts to commercialize a new transistor design in the 1950s and 1960s led to California’s “Silicon Valley” becoming a hotbed of electronics innovation. In his later life, Shockley was a professor at Stanford and became a staunch advocate of eugenics.

    Most people don’t understand that California is the surest bet in being the ground state for a genuine white Supremacist movement… The “California Dream” in the mind of a white man is far more explicit and particular than the “American Dream.” As the latter crumbles, the former only seems more necessary. And ultimately, the “California Dream” is intricately intertwined with the particular land of California.

  13. thordaddy says:

    The fags at the “top” of San Fransisco are self-annihilators by “nature.” “They” ultimately deny possessing God-ordained free will so they will be squashed first by more primitive liberationists… Of course, there is a silent WHITE mass that TRULY LOVES the San Fransisco lifestyle that is intricately tied to the land, coastline, bays, etc… This part of the “California Dream” is crumbling first FOR OBVIOUS REASON…. Its “leaders” ARE THE ARCHETYPE self-annihilator.

  14. FN says:

    Walker reminds me of Jared Taylor ONLY Jared is a goy. Almost all of her posts on vdare are attacking Islam in the vilest of manners Sort of like what AR’s news blog does, only even JT, who covers for the YKW as good as BW does, covers at least some of the other excesses.
    Let’s face it the PROBLEM with America, today, is NOT Islam, it is another tribe out of the Middle-East or Khazaristan, the YKW. And their brown and black, and yellow tools.

    The beauty of this “TECH” industry is that Zuckerberg and the rest want to GET RID of the paleskins. In the Silicon Valley already the Indians ONLY hire Indians and the Chinese ONLY hire Chinese so that is a VERY positive sign. These anti-White paleskins NEED TO GO. And sooner than they can every imagine they WILL be gone.
    There is NOTHING lower than a creature who SELLS OUT ITS OWN KIND.
    So these paleskins will be squeezed between the Asian Technocrats which is the goal of the YKW to run the USA for them, and the brown and black and lower rung breeds of the Asian continents and islands, e.g. FILIPINOS, HMONG, etc.
    So ENJOY your time on earth anti-White paleskins, it is VERY limited.

    • KO says:

      A noticeable Islamic presence in the US is a symptom, not a disease. If America were a healthy traditionalist country, it would exclude all Moslems. Those that are not deported should be dispersed to prevent the existence of Moslem communities. Islam in America is a symptom of the disease of liberalism, that subverts and poisons the traditional white Christian culture and identity of America in every conceivable way. The hostile elites think they can use Moslems to beat down white America and rush us into their multicultural paradise. Terrorist incidents and other crimes are just collateral damage.

  15. thordaddy says:

    MW…

    There is not a contradiction in San Francisco, but a logical drive towards Final Liberation, i.e., self-annihilation…. San Francisco ceases TO BE San Francisco anymore. It is analagous to what we witnessed yesterday in the NFL… It is no longer the NFL… It is part and parcel of the zeitgeist. FULLY ASSIMILATED.

  16. countenance says:

    All this is is KKKrazy Glue losing its adhesiveness.

    Once the left wing and its grand string bean coalition of the anti-(Historic American nation) is secure in its own space, then they start turning on each other, because that which they had in common, their common enemy, is no longer a threat.

  17. KO says:

    Yes, countenance, we can’t take much pleasure in spats that are just signs of our own defeat and irrelevance. San Francisco should be a white Christian American town. Irish and Italians used to be important there, not to mention WASPs. The fact that others are fighting over the carcass while we stand watching is not much to celebrate.

    The Secret to the Suicidal Liberal Mind

    Dr. Jack Wheeler [I met him at Branden’s house 1970]

    Posted on 1/21/2002 1:16:50 PM by 45Auto

    What do Harvard president Larry Summers, Taliban John Walker, Delta Airlines officials and the editors of the New York Times have in common with Yanomamo tribeswomen in the Amazon jungle? To answer this question is to understand the root cause of liberal “white guilt.” Lakes of ink have been splashed on newspaper, magazine and journal pages ruminating and anguishing over the bottomless guilt that pervades the liberal soul. Paul Craig Roberts, economist and columnist, writes eloquently about the anti-white racism endemic in American universities that demonizes white males as the font of all evil. Shelby Steele of the Hoover Institute explained in the Wall Street Journal recently how white guilt empowers racist frauds such as Cornel West.

    The self-loathing of the white American liberal is as well-established and documented as Einstein’s Special Relativity theorems. A typical example is writer Susan Sontag’s denouncement of the white race as “the cancer of human history.” A racist hatred of one’s own race – auto-racism – has become a defining characteristic of the liberal mind. Yet the source of such suicidal guilt remains a mystery. Clearly understanding what disables liberals from wanting to defend their culture is today a mortal necessity – an absolute requirement if America is to be preserved and protected from Moslem terrorists and other folk desirous of her demise.

    Exploitation and Black Magic

    For such understanding, we need to travel to the Amazon. Among the Yanomamo and other tribes deep in the Amazon rain forests still adhering to the ancient hunting-gathering lifestyle practiced by our Paleolithic ancestors, it is an accepted practice that when a woman gives birth, she tearfully proclaims her child to be ugly. In a loud, mortified lament that the entire tribe can hear, she asks why the gods have cursed her with such a pathetically repulsive infant. She does this in order to ward off the envious black magic of the Evil Eye, the Mal Ojo, that would be directed at her by her fellow tribespeople if they knew how happy she was with her beautiful baby.

    Anthropologists observe that for most primitive and traditional cultures, “every individual lives in constant fear of the magical aggression of others … there is only one explanation for unforeseen events: the envious black magic of another villager.” Reflect for a moment on the extent to which tribespeople in a tribal, “primitive” culture suffuse their lives with superstition, witchcraft, sorcery, voodoo, “black magic,” the “evil eye.” The world for them is teeming with demons, spirits, ghosts and gods, all of whom are malicious and dangerous — in a word, envious. A great many, if not the majority, of tribal or traditional cultures, whether in the Amazon, Africa or the Pacific, have no concept of natural death. Death is always murder.

    For the Shuara Jivaro of the eastern Amazon, the first tribe I ever stayed with, there are three ways to die: actual murder (such as a spear through your stomach); demon-murder (accidental death, such as being killed by a falling tree in a storm or by snakebite, which the Jivaros see as perpetrated by a demon); or witchcraft murder (death by illness or unexplained causes, perpetrated by an envious sorcerer). The Jivaro, just like the Tiv in Nigeria, the Aritama in Colombia, the Dobua in Micronesia, the Navaho in the Southwest U.S. and the tribal mind in general, attribute any illness or misfortune to the envious black magic of a personal enemy.

    Envy is the source of tribal and traditional cultures’ belief in Black Magic, the fear of the envious Evil Eye.
