L.A. Has Bidenesque Plan to Solve Its ‘Homeless’ Problem

'Our unhoused neighbors are human, and the language we use should reflect that...'

(Chris Parker, Headline USA) The Biden administration recently “handled” its recession problem by redefining the word.

Now, the city of Los Angeles is taking a similar problem to “solve” its homelessness problem: they want to ban the word “homeless,” reports Rebel News.

“Our unhoused neighbors are human, and the language we use should reflect that,” tweeted the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. “Let’s abandon outdated, ‘othering’, and dehumanizing terminology—and instead, adopt people-centered language that emphasize [sic] personhood over housing status.”

The tweet included an infographic detailing what the city consider acceptable and unacceptable terms to  describe homelessness.

“People who live outside,” “people who are unhoused,” and “people experiencing homelessness,” all made the list of acceptable descriptions. They claimed wanting to “emphasize personhood over housing status.”

California has broken homelessness records since Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom took office. It has led to a significant rise in tent cities, which are now being dubbed “Shantytowns” by experts.

Still, Newsom has insisted that the state’s growing problems are not the result of his big-government policies.

“So there is a new framework around accountability, new planning metrics that include county sheriffs,” Newsom said in January. “And I look forward to the sheriff’s detailed strategy on how best to use the resources that he’s been provided as well.”

While changing the word is unlikely to actually help the homeless, it will provide a distraction for those discussing the issue. The LAHSA likely also hopes that the new terms will make the situation seem less dire.

The desperate attempts to redefine words come as Democrats struggle to gain a foothold ahead of the midterms. They are fighting an uphill battle against high gas prices, soaring inflation and an increasingly intrusive government.

Democrats running for local offices are also fighting against increased crime and decreased police patrols. Pundits on both sides are expecting a massive red wave in November.
