Philly’s Open-Air Drug Hell: Dems Ignore Homeless, Biden Silent

In the city of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, there is a neighborhood that is not feeling much love these days. Kensington, known as the “East Coast’s largest open-air drug market” by Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials, has become a hotbed of homelessness and rampant drug abuse. And it’s not a pretty sight.

A disturbing video has emerged, showing desperate addicts injecting heroin and other dangerous drugs in broad daylight without a care in the world. Passersby and traffic go about their business as if this normalized behavior is just another part of the daily routine. Meanwhile, infections related to drug use have escalated to the point where some addicts face the horrifying prospect of amputations or permanent disability. It’s truly a tragic and heartbreaking situation.

But what’s even more disheartening is the lack of action from city officials. Democratic councilman Mark Squilla, who represents Pennsylvania’s first district, acknowledges that the city’s current approach is not working. The so-called “outreach teams” meant to address homelessness and drug addiction are falling short, and Squilla recognizes that continuous cleanups without addressing the root problems are like putting lipstick on a pig – it may look good temporarily, but it doesn’t solve anything.

It’s refreshing to hear a Democrat admit that their policies are failing, but unfortunately, it’s a rare occurrence. The reality is that Democrat-run cities like Philadelphia, San Francisco, Chicago, and others continue to grapple with rampant homelessness, drug abuse, overdose deaths, and violent crime. And what’s even more infuriating is the revolving door system, where repeat offenders are released back onto the streets, often leading to preventable crimes.

While it may be wishful thinking, if more Democrats had the same mindset as Councilman Squilla, we might actually see a decline in these pressing issues. But the chances of that happening are near zero. Democrats seem more concerned with blaming “systemic racism” and “white supremacists” than actually tackling the problems that plague their cities.

It’s truly disheartening to see the self-destruction of individuals in desperate situations. These people should not be left to suffer by the “compassionate” Democrats who claim to care about their well-being. It’s time for real solutions and real action, not just empty promises and excuses.

As for Joe Biden, well, he’s conveniently unavailable to comment on this crisis. But then again, his track record on addressing pressing issues leaves much to be desired. Perhaps he’s too busy enjoying a slice of pizza to pay attention to the suffering happening in his own backyard.

It’s time for a change, and it starts with holding our elected officials accountable and demanding better for our communities. The people of Kensington deserve better, and it’s about time someone stepped up to the plate and delivered. Let’s hope that day comes sooner rather than later.
