More Evidence Progressivism is Stupidity Cubed

More than a year old, but still amazing.  9/17/17 Seattle Times  article about why jurors are reluctant to serve at the King County Courthouse.  Of course, the streets are littered with human feces.  But:
Some committee members expressed concern about addressing the symptoms of the area’s problems without getting to the cause. Councilmember Larry Gossett said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.
Yup.  Cleaning sidewalks is like using firehoses on civil rights activists.  What is he comparing civil rights activists to?  The stuff they want to wash off the sidewalk?

Good Lord. Any civilization that accumulates enough of this stupidity (and lets it rise to the top!) can't be far away from collapse. We have to be close to critical mass at this point.

Wow, excremental sidewalk pollution isn't just a San Francisco thing. Maybe the Corp of Engineers should replicate Hercules' cleansing of the Augean stables.

Yes, and he should be strenuously censured for that reference, too. If monkeying up the economy is racist, then this comment is, too.
