L.A. Collapsing into Third-World Status as Garbage, Filth, Disease, and Homelessness Spiral Out of Control.

Posted on June 4, 2019 by USA  features  media in U.S. National 

By Ethan Huff, NewsTarget, and TNS Editors

The City of Angels is looking a whole lot more like a Den of Demons these days, as the second-largest city in the United States descends into “complete breakdown,” according to Dr. Drew Pinsky, a longtime L.A. resident and radio personality who gave his take on the current crumbling state of the world’s biggest entertainment hub during a recent episode of “The Ingraham Angle.”

Rampant illegal immigration, homelessness, rodent infestation, and infectious disease are just a few of the many serious problems afflicting today’s LA, according to reports. And in the eyes of Dr. Pinsky, the California mecca is now, in many ways, worse off than many Third World countries because of it all.

“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” Dr. Pinsky stated frankly to Laura Ingraham during the segment.

“We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down,” he further explained.

Dr. Pinsky’s contentions come on the heels of disturbing reports about the spread of life-threatening illnesses like typhoid fever and bubonic plague, both of which are making a comeback in L.A. An L.A. police officer reportedly contracted typhoid fever recently, and bubonic plague, which killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century, is also “likely” spreading in L.A. as well, according to Dr. Pinsky.

“This is unbelievable,” Dr. Pinsky says about the horrific conditions that plague L.A. in 2019.

“I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World. This is medieval. Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk.”

Despite having some of the highest tax rates in the country, Los Angeles is also crumbling at the infrastructure level. As reported back in 2014, the writing was already on the wall for L.A. back then, with mainstream media reports explaining that:

“… from buckling sidewalks to potholed thoroughfares to storm drains that can’t handle a little rain, the infrastructure that holds the second-largest U.S. city together is suffering from years of deferred maintenance.”

Much of California – and much of the U.S. as a whole, for that matter – is in similar serious disrepair. San Francisco has become a giant toilet; Mississippi’s roadways are collapsing; and let’s not even talk about the bridges in Rhode Island.

One might try to exclusively blame Leftist politics for these failures, but let’s face it: Both blue and red states are stricken with the types of political corruption that are causing this country to become worse than a Third World country – or as Dr. Pinsky puts it, we have too many politicians that are “disgustingly negligent,” at best.

“[T]he government is somehow insisting that housing is the problem when in fact we have chronic mental illness, we have addiction, we have people who don’t want to leave the streets,” Dr. Pinsky went on to explain to Ingraham, speaking specifically in the context of L.A.

“They literally won’t take the housing if we give it to them. And that’s the population that’s vulnerable and is going to get so ill this summer. It scares me for their well-being.”

On Monday the New York Post reported that L.A. is collapsing further into third-world status:

With rats running everywhere among piles of decaying garbage, these shocking images of a tent city look like a sordid third world shanty — but are actually downtown Los Angeles.

The horrifying photos show what the Los Angeles Times calls “collapse of a city that’s lost control” — and what is believed to have left at least one LAPD cop with typhoid.

“The city of Los Angeles has become a giant trash receptacle,” Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez compThe decay covers large chunks of Skid Row, a sprawling 50-block area that is believed to be the base for around 4,200 homeless peopl“What century is this?” Lopez asked.

“Is it the 21st century in the largest city of a state that ranks among the world’s most robust economies, or did someone turn back the calendar a few hundred years?”

He described someone even dumping “a fat load of poop” in the streets among the rest of the dirt and depravity.

“It used to be that illegal dumpers were a little more discreet, tossing their refuse in fields and gullies and remote outposts,” Lopez wrote.

“Now city streets are treated like dumpsters, or even toilets.”

These encampments are in downtown LA area, and a several other known places, it is a problem and out of control. I also is not everywhere, but a serious problem where they exist. Motor homes are camping out in industrial areas, Areas along freeways are encampments. Its a mess for sure, its in many other cities.

You know, sad story and all, but I have nothing but contempt for that hell hole and I'm glad that I left. I'm never looking back. Goodbye forever. Worst experience of my life.

Aliens, traitors and mortal enemies would oppose me and attack me but not my loved ones, my family, my countrymen or my allies.
