San Francisco To “G.I.F.T.” Transgenders Monthly Income

When is enough, enough? Far left zealots will do anything to demonstrate their dedication to the “woke” cause. Sadly, these grandstanding exhibitions hurt taxpayers and ignore legitimate needs.

San Francisco, once a beautiful American city, is now a symbol of liberal disarray.

The city is littered with homeless people that openly urinate and defecate on the streets and sidewalks. Drug addicts are supplied with taxpayer funded “free” drugs, resulting in syringes  also being thrown dangerously out into public areas.

Catch and release, another dangerously liberal policy, repeatedly puts a sinister criminal element back into the general public. Crimes such as assault, robbery, rape, and murder have all increased as a result.

With all of these issues, plus plenty more, extremist Mayor London Breed has chosen to ignore working towards improving his city’s floundering condition and has chosen instead to waste over a million dollars on a transgender giveaway.

Breed has announced a monthly stimulus program exclusively for transgender residents. The program named, “Guaranteed Income for Trans People” (G.I.F.T.) will pay 55 transgenders $1,200 for 18 months.

The website reads:

“Guaranteed Income for Transgender People (G.I.F.T.) will provide economically marginalized transgender people with unrestricted, monthly guaranteed income as a way to combat poverty our most impacted community members face. The Transgender District and Lyon-Martin Community Health Services, in partnership with municipal city departments in the City and County of San Francisco, will provide 55 Transgender residents of San Francisco County with $1,200 a month in guaranteed income for a year and a half. The program will prioritize enrollment of Transgender, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex (TGI) people who are also Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC), experiencing homelessness, living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, youth and elders, monolingual Spanish-speakers, and those who are legally vulnerable such as TGI people who are undocumented, engaging in survival sex trades, ​or are formerly incarcerated.”

The program’s payments will be both regular and unconditional for qualified applicants to give steady income to the recipients, who can then spend it as they wish. The mayor’s office also stated that in addition to the temporary income, GIFT will also provide other resources, such as financial coaching and “gender-affirming medical and mental-health care.”

Breed added:

“Our Guaranteed Income Programs allow us to help our residents when they need it most as part of our city’s economic recovery and our commitment to creating a more just city for all. We know that our trans communities experience much higher rates of poverty and discrimination, so this program will target support to lift individuals in this community up.”

The city will begin accepting applications for this sham from November 15th to December 15th.

The mayor of this city needs to be removed from office. To spend 1.2 million taxpayer dollars on 55 selected individuals should be considered criminal. Transgenders are a minute portion of the population. He is choosing to ignore the vast majority of the people to appease some fanatical ideal.

If you read the small print, the $1200 per month for 18 months is not the final cost. The website states “that in addition to the temporary income, GIFT will also provide other resources, such as financial coaching and “gender-affirming medical and mental-health care.”

What will these services cost? It is outrageous that this is even being considered.

Breeds statement that this program is “part of our city’s economic recovery” is ridiculous. How can greasing the palms of 55 specific transgenders, in any way help the economic health of the city?

So is his statement that “trans communities experience much higher rates of poverty and discrimination.” San Francisco has a major homeless problem and the majority are not transgenders.

This is nothing more than a self-absorbed, egotistical display of leftist insanity, designed to attract attention to himself. As usual, the taxpayers will bear the brunt of the stupidity.
