The liberal, oh-so-hip city of Santa Cruz, California has for the last several years been waging war on the city’s homeless population. A year and a half ago the city council closed down the town’s only homeless shelter, and lately the city government has ordered the cops to enforce a law that bans sleeping outdoors between 11 pm and 8:30 am.
To call attention to this inhumane approach to the homelessness problem, an unknown person — and we ain’t sayin’ who — produced the following leaflet, designed to look like a public announcement from the City of Santa Cruz, that invites citizens to a council meeting where the council members will discuss giving citizens free methamphetamine to help them comply with the no-sleeping ordinance. Here’s the flyer:
The best part is that a lot of people are dumb enough to buy it. Some are outraged, while others really want to know where they can get their free meth.
The kicker? The head of the right-wing Santa Cruz “citizens” anti-homeless group was just indicted for — you guessed it! — manufacture of methamphetamine.
