Wow what a worthless thread who cares?

To be fair, I'm not sure what I was expecting when I clicked the title.

Yes, I am overwhelmingly surprised with the recent tone taken by this IndyTx guy.  I'm actually starting to like this guy.

I see. Well, you had said "Try being a liberal in Provo" so I assumed that's where you lived. It certainly seems like you're brushing off the fact that there are lunatics in the streets around here. Face it, you don't have that problem in the real Utah,, which is one of the greatest and safest states in the nation as you're probably aware. Yes, SLC area is more sympathetic to some aspects of liberal leftism, but it's nothing compared to around here. This place is on its own planet, and I actually live here, and I observe the things Gopman has observed. It's a dirty city that can't even clean the roads!

Then why on earth don't you leave SF? If you hate it's people and quirkiness so much, why don't you leave it?

Like SLValleyMan and Miles said, I live in Utah, and in a conservative city (West Jordan, a very conservative suburb of SLC). I dislike it here, there's nothing to do, it's generic to a fault, you can't get anywhere unless you drive (I can't), it's very conservative, and a bit stifling. Yet I love my state, if not my city. I like the people here, even if they're culturally and politically conservative. I would not consider West Jordanians or Utahns as a whole "freaks".

And I would consider all parts of Utah to be the "real Utah"; Provo, SLC, whatever. And it seems like you're implying that because SLC is diverse and politically liberal, it is not "real Utah". That's false. SLC has always been a part of "real Utah", and it's been diverse and relatively liberal since the 1860s. Working at a thrift store in West Jordan, I got people from SLC coming in all the time, counter-culture types, refugees from dozens of different countries, etc. I consider them all part of "real Utah".

So knock it off with your smug, self-righteous superiority.

Why don't you get the hell out of SF then?

Isn't this supposed to be a city of "tolerance" and "diversity"? Or is a different opinion not welcome?

"Tolerance" does not mean being accepting of bigotry and racism, sorry.

You know, I noticed that Ernest edited out the part of your first comment which implied that part of your reason for disliking San Francisco is that gay people live there. Between this and your comment suggesting that the homeless are either mentally ill or "faking", if this is the way that you present yourself to your fellow San Francisco residents, then I can't say I blame them for being less than friendly towards you.

Oh, it's welcome, it's just that people have the right to speak out against you, and there's a lot more of them in SF than you.

Also, what SLValleyMan said.

You can't oppose "the gays, homeless people, and mentally ill taking over SF," then complain that your ideas are not welcome because you are being criticized for trying other's ideas. It doesn't work that way.

Someone who is promoting communist symbols is not going to lecture me on either of these topics.  Name one bigoted thing or racist thing that I said. Revolting.

The fact that your post was edited by a mod is somewhat telling...

Also, your entire rant about a "filthy freakshow of a city" is pretty bigoted, because we all know who you're referring to.
