While Oregon has long been known for being one of the greater centers of wokery in America, right down to the combination of violent antifa, widespread drugs, and relentless transgender militancy, it looks like the state may have finally gone too far with its latest society-destroying intentions.
House Bill 3501, one of the many notorious bills proposed in Oregon in recent times, underscores the degree to which the state is committed to completely destroying society.
Fortunately, the bill is currently on ice following massive public outcry, though a typically bureaucratic excuse was provided for the swift shutdown of public debate.
For now, anyway, until the public is manipulated into accepting House Bill 3501 just like more than one member of the public is now accepting of 50+ different genders.
After all, troves of the willing homeless already go to Oregon, California, Washington, and other cesspools of narcotics to get away with open drug abuse in public, whether or not children are present.
And, despite the rising crime rates and increasingly shuttered businesses, House Bill 3501, hilariously entitled the “Right to Rest” act, gives even more “rights” to individuals who have zero respect for the rights of others.
Indeed, this bill apparently allows the homeless to camp out indefinitely in any “government-funded space,” regardless of how disruptive or dangerous such narcotics-laden camps may be.
Humorously, the bill also has the gall to claim that people should not be discriminated against based on “housing status,” failing to account for individuals who choose a criminal lifestyle filled with narcotics.
“Persons experiencing homelessness … [have the right] to move freely in public spaces without discrimination and time limitations that are based on housing status, [as well as] be permitted to use public spaces in the same manner as any other person without discrimination based on their housing status,” the self-righteous bill sneered.
“Persons experiencing homelessness.”
More like “persons who choose to be perennially checked out on drugs” instead.
What an utterly absurd law that does absolutely nothing to get people back on their feet … On the contrary, it supremely enables them.
Worst of all, this bill seems to even encourage them, and that’s a very slippery, slippery slope, as the bill declares deliberate druggies should have a “reasonable expectation of privacy in any property belonging to the person, regardless of whether the property is located in a public space.”
Hilariously, the homeless would also have a right to “sue” if their “privacy” in a public space isn’t respected, and that money would promptly go straight to drug dealers that roam freely about the deeply gentrified streets of Portland.
What’s next? People shouldn’t face any kind of consequences for deliberate criminal behavior?
Heck, people with felonies aren’t allowed to vote or be employed by many companies for a reason (for now, anyway), so what’s next?
A law that doesn’t allow people to be barred from employment based on “criminal status?”
Unsurprisingly, major pushback has emerged in response to the inane bill, though State House Majority Leader Julie Fahey claimed that House Bill 3501 would not be proceeding further because its sponsors missed “key deadlines.”
What a shock.
“The fact that the bill is dead and can’t become law hasn’t been made clear in press reports, leading to an enormous amount of confusion and consternation among many,” Fahey whined, adding that the bill had become a “significant distraction” from its original intentions.
Well, the alleged “deadness” of the bill is made clear now, though like any other horrific Democrat endeavor, it may always be jarred to life, much to the consternation of the general, law-abiding public.
