Los Angeles City Council Has Voted To Name Hotels That Won’t House Homeless, Might ‘Commandeer’ Them

Published

The Los Angeles city council made a rather scary vote on Wednesday that should have anyone who is a believer in freedom very, very nervous. A vote was held to identify certain hotels that were refusing to use spare rooms to house the homeless during the COVID-19 crisis, noting these establishments might be “commandeered.”

That’s a really nice way of saying forcibly taken over at gun point by the government. Tyranny truly is beginning to rear its ugly head, in broad daylight, in light of the coronavirus crisis. It’s as if the left has been waiting for a nightmare scenario like this to show their true colors.

Here’s more on this from Fox News:

Only 1,582 people have been placed in hotels, far short of the city’s goal of housing 15,000, FOX 11 in Los Angeles reported.

“Each hotel brings new hope, each room could save a life,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said of Project Roomkey, according to KABC-TV.

“If hotels are making a distinction among people classifying housed and unhoused differently in terms of accommodations that they’re going to be repaid for, that the city and county will pay for with reimbursements, then I think there’s a potential civil rights violation,” Councilman Mike Bonin said. “If the problems are on the hotel end, the public should know why, and then we should consider commandeering as they’ve talked about in other cities.”

The council is also planning to look into whether or not the hotels refusing to house the homeless have received tax breaks from the city in recent years.

This motion was co-authored by Bonin and goes on to say that some of the hotels have been “unwilling to participate, reneged on initial interest, citing security concerns, liability issues, objections from corporate management or fear of lost revenue from being branded a ‘homeless hotel.”

Councilman Mitch O’Farrel looks at the giving of tax breaks to these establishments as a sort of “scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” scenario, stating that it seems completely justified for the local government to expect something back from the hotels in exchange for these tax breaks.

Hmmm. That sounds just a touch shady.

One of the hotels resisting this move by the local government is the Ritz Carlton located in downtown Los Angeles. The hotel has been the recipient of millions of dollars in tax breaks from the city over the years.

Well, it looks like we can file this report under DUUUUUHHHHHH!!! From The Daily Wire: Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels slammed President Joe Biden during a Fox News interview this week for the ongoing crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that Biden’s reversal of the last administration’s policies have caused a serious problem on the border. “When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources, and it stopped construction on our border,” Dannels said. “As a result of that, one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there. It’s [opened up] the border. It opened up the message that it’s okay to come in this country. This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is it’s forcing us back to 2019, where we had the largest what I call crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL6Hqonas7k And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/brandonwenerd/status/1368026400456732674 https://twitter.com/govkristinoem/status/1367944560580648967 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1368046181721444352 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1368037566684033027
