Los Angeles May Commandeer Luxury Hotels to House Homeless Because COVID-19

Any aspect of the progressive agenda can be inflicted in the name of the ChiCom virus, up to and including actual confiscation of property of the type that was seen in the homeland of the virus after communists seized power.

Via Fox News:

The Los Angeles City Council Wednesday voted to identify hotels refusing to take in the homeless during the coronavirus pandemic and said they could possibly be “commandeered.”

Rights that our ancestors fought and died for must be sacrificed if it theoretically might save lives according to the experts. This applies even to the basic rights that serve as the pillars of civilization, like property rights.

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

Councilman Mike Bonin frames commandeering hotels as a “civil rights” issue. At this point, “civil rights” are to rights what “social justice” is to justice.

The motion, co-authored by Bonin, says, some 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,’” according to KABC.

Therefore, their property must be taken by force.

The Third Amendment restricts government from forcibly quartering soldiers in people’s homes. Too bad this doesn’t apply to the unofficial zombie army of the Democrat Party, for which recruitment is accomplished through open borders, encouragement of drug use, a refusal to address mental illness, and job-destroying liberal policies.

The Ritz Carlton in downtown Los Angeles, which has luxury condo residences, was among those resisting.

The Ritz won’t have quite the same cachet after it has been used as a government homeless shelter — always assuming that Big Government ever feels a need to give the hotel back to its rightful owners.

The hotel has received millions of dollars in tax breaks from the city over the years, according to FOX 11.

Any favor from Big Government comes with strings attached — even the “favor” of it refraining from confiscating as much money as it might have otherwise.

The condo residence’s homeowner’s association cited security, health and property value concerns in a letter to homeowners saying they would resist housing the homeless.

The average price for a one-bedroom condo in the hotel is about $1 million; some go for 40 times as much.

For that money, owners expect not to trip over drug-addled derelicts defecating in the hallway. They shouldn’t have spent so much on the mortgage that there was not enough left over to bribe councilmen to leave their property alone.

You might have thought it would take a bloody and protracted war before leftists could impose this level of tyranny on Americans. But decades of having our national character rotted away by moonbattery seem to have accomplished the job.
