San Francisco Backs Down From Ban on Unwoke States

The maxim “Get woke, go broke” applies beyond corporations that put politically correct posturing ahead of the bottom line. It can apply to whole cities, like the moonbat Mecca, San Francisco, which may have to repeal its ban on doing business with states that do not sufficiently comply with leftist ideology:

The ordinance was passed in 2016. Chapter 12X was voted into existence in the wake of the Obergefell v. Hodges decision and it took aim at states that passed so-called anti-LGBTQ legislation. The boycott was amended twice in 2019 and 2021 to add additional states which passed restrictive abortion and voting rights legislation.

Allegedly restrictive voting rights legislation refers to attempts to prevent the election fraud Democrats rely on to win close elections.

Instead of forcing the rest of the country to become San Francisco, the ordinance blew up in moonbat bureaucrats’ slack-jawed faces.

City Administrator Carmen Chu’s office issued a report on February 10 that contended the law was costly and ineffective. …

“Since 12X became operative, the number of banned states has grown from 8 states in 2017 to 30 in 2022. This increase suggests that the city’s threat of boycott may not serve as a compelling deterrent to states considering restrictive policies,” the report stated.

Sometimes reality penetrates the insulation of solipsistic arrogance that allows left-wing kooks to believe the rest of the world will comply with their demands.

The report also found that the ban has caused San Francisco’s contracting costs to jump by approximately 10-20%.

The ban accomplishes nothing except to showcase the intolerant bullying that characterizes liberals and to drive up costs for taxpayers.

Supervisor Rafael Mandelman also told the San Francisco Chronicle that he will introduce legislation to repeal the ordinance entirely.

Maybe California won’t be able to impose itself on the rest of the country after all.

On tips from Franco, Georgi A, and Bluto.
