This is the greatest example of the true nature of socialism and liberalism!! What happens on a freezing cold night in Birmingham when Bernie Sanders needs a campaign space and a bunch of homeless losers are in the way? Let’s just say our future socialist dictator always gets his way!!
From Alabama Media Group:
With temperatures in Birmingham expected to dropped to 20 overnight Monday – the lowest temperature thus far in 2016 – the place where the city’s homeless usually go to seek shelter from the cold was unavailable.
Boutwell Auditorium, typically used as a warming station in such situations, was not available Monday night because presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders spoke to a crowd of thousands. Factoring in wind chill, it was expected to feel more like 15 degrees on the streets of Birmingham.
Last week, the auditorium housed about 300 people a night when it served as a warming station for three nights.
“We’ve never had a night like this where it will be in the teens and we weren’t able to open,” said Don Lupo, of the mayor’s office of citizen’s assistance.
Isn’t that just perfect? While this math-challenged commie holds a rally bashing “millionaires and billionaires” who are supposedly making everyone poor and homeless, there are literally 300 homeless people freezing out on the streets because of his rally!!!
In a Facebook post about the embarrassing episode, Lupo said he was not a “happy camper”:
Director, Mayor’s Office of Citizens Assistance at City of Birmingham

to say i’m not a happy camper tonight would be one of those understatements that you hear about all the time – we couldn’t open the WARMING STATION because the building was booked – there is no one to be mad at – the SCLC had event there in the late afternoon and there was a Bernie Sanders rally there tonight – so Boutwell was not available on the coldest night we’ve had in a few years – being mad with the SCLC or Senator Sanders doesn’t get us anywhere
what gets us somewhere is doing something about our problem – we have a lack of shelter beds – plain and simple – as in the old days – there is no room in the inn – we have three (3) emergency shelters in our city – Firehouse Shelter, First Light and Birmingham Salvation Army – that’s it – that’s not enough to house all the people – people, our neighbors, our brothers and sisters – the three above shelters are full to the brim tonight – Pathways: A Woman’s Way Home is full, Brother Bryan Mission is full
my phone (both of them) have blown up tonight – PMs on here have come as fast as i could read them – i’ve gotten messages from people that i didn’t know even knew my name – so maybe instead of being mad at someone we should be thankful – not being open tonight has people concerned – not being open tonight has people talking
maybe tomorrow we’ll wake up with a fresh idea of what to do – maybe tomorrow someone or some group will call and offer space when the space at Boutwell can’t be used
i used this a few days ago but i turned to it again tonight and i am going to claim it’s promise – and i promise those angels that i talk about all the time and i will not faint – “let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
love thy neighbor, feed the hungry, clothe any that are naked

And that’s what we can expect from socialist Bernie-in-chief: a lot of rhetoric about helping people while he makes everything worse for everyone. LOL!!
