Shocking Video Footage Of Sprawling California Tent City

Tyler Durden's picture

California, 1 of only 6 states where Democrats control the governship, statehouse (with a super-majority nonetheless) and state supreme court, is perfectly setup to implement a Bernie Sanders-inspired socialist utopia where everyone makes the same amount of money, enjoys limitless social programs and is never exposed to the horrors of gender-based bathroom signs. 

And while liberals would like for you to believe that their socialist agenda is the cure for poverty (in addition to pretty much every other problem plaguing the world), California's reality paints a slightly different picture.  In fact, in just the latest example that all is not well in California's socialist utopia, Dan Lyman recently exposed this shocking video footage of a sprawling tent city that is 'home' to an estimated 1,000 residents. 

As Lyman points out, what was once a beautiful bike trail along the Pacific Ocean has now been transformed into a tent city, rife with crime, that reeks of garbage and human feces.

Locals have become increasingly alarmed by the rapid spread of unregulated squatters and their belongings – and their waste.


“As a cyclist who uses the trail to ride to the beach often, over this last year it has gotten substantially worse.  It is unsafe and unsanitary with loose dogs everywhere and human fecal matter scattered on the trail.”


“The area is disgusting and reeks of trash and feces.”


He reports that the bike trail, once popular with outdoors enthusiasts and families which runs for miles to beaches along the Pacific Ocean, has become unsafe as miscreants plot assaults and robberies on passing riders, even laying tripwires across the path.


But California's Democrats aren't just failing the poor people that have been relegated to tent cities, as we pointed out last fall (see "Americans Fleeing Expensive, Over-Taxed Metro Areas In Pursuit Of Affordability") people of all income brackets are fleeing the state in droves.  Not surprisingly, these domestic migrants are flocking to areas with a lower cost of living, lower/no state income taxes, less regulations and higher job growth (aka "Red" states). 

Domestic Migration


Ironically, the dark areas on the map above seem to match perfectly with the dark areas on this map which indicate those with the highest state income tax rates.

But, if Jerry Brown can just get his $100 billion bullet train finished then we're sure all will be well.

They took my advice!

There are many fine benefits of camping out.  You might try it this weekend.

Just like the streets of Paris.

Not quite.

Paris has mattresses on the streets- not tents. Calais is the tent city

Soon they will tent up in the closing malls, just in time for FEMA to fence them

I don't think it's a shame to live in a tent.  Southern CA is not a bad tent home.  

What is a shame is that California zoning laws have made affordable housing illegal.  Tiny houses illegal.  small, affordable plots of land unavailable with larger lots undividable.   The truth is that California .gov leaders only speak of helping the poor when their legislation does EVERYTHING to the contrary.  I am a fortunate person...but I am not arrogant.  I could build a VERY comfortable 200 square foot home out of a pallet frame.  But...a pallet framed house would be illegal in california...and you couldn't run your own electrical, because you aren't a contractor or a licensed electrician....and on, and on, and on.

happy tenting...

Don't know about California, but in Australia you can run dc under a certain voltage.

Great lighting and even dc air conditioners.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

Then for Gods sake man, send those folks some money, help out a bit!

Wooden shipping pallets make very good staircases. And wiring your own place is a piece of cake.

At least malls have toilets. It would be an improvement.

But who will guard the inmates? Otherwise it won't be long until such a place becomes a no-go zone for law enforcement.

Yes, but do the turlets work in a closed and shuttered mall? That's the 64 dollar question. Bet not, cause who's paying for it?

Compost toilets and land solve waste problem.  In much of world waste is used as fertilizer.  But 'modern' sewage mixes solids and liquids like bird.  Nature made man with two waste systems so he can fertilize the plants with nitrogen, and enrich the soil with carbon.

Man makes more urine fertilizer than his diet demands.  Big problem is man is alienated from nature and brainwashed to think Jew debt notes are money, when they are negative money

At least the tent dwellers have eliminated debt slavery from their life.  They have more savings than the debt slaves renting everything, owning nothing.  Trappings of wealth are mere traps

With the increase of spending on the Pentagon , every single homeless person in the United States could have an 83,000 dollar house.
With the funding for the F35 jet , every single homeless person in the United States could be given a 2 million dollar mansion!

Except if you give anything of value to a nigger/spic/muzzie it will be sold for drugs/booze or just trashed. Just look at any town in south america or africa.  They shit everywhere, trash everything and live worse than animals.

Build the wall and evict the illegals and any immigrant on welfare.  The rest can just be ignored until they off themselves with drugs and violence.  If you feel sympathy for these vermin, the simple solution is to take them into your home or give them charity.  But no more govt handouts because this is forced charity, which is another name for robbery at gunpoint.

Feed pigeons and they just multiply until they are everywhere.

Giant Meteor's picture

Yeah, but they shit everywhere. Nasty bastards .. I mean except for the carrier pigeons. They're ok in my book. Them other useless eater pigeons, fuck them.

rrrr's picture

Pigeons dominate other birds and drive them away. I have two birdbaths outside my window and the pigeons came and shit in the birdbaths and bullied the other birds and after a couple of weeks the other birds wouldn't come. Then the pigeons became welfare birds. The other birds stayed away. The others were good, wild, not welfare birds. So I shot the pigeons. One of them screamed for days. Then the other birds came back and the pigeons don't come any more. Peace. Pigeons are not birds of peace. They are obnoxious welfare birds.

They are rats with wings. And not in a cute, perky way either.

Eh, what's the rent like in that tent city though, since it's California I'm thinking probably 75mo/sqft

The fact is that if you give most people a million dollars, they will be broke in a few years.  This is a documented fact based on experience with lottery winners.  Most poor people aren't poor because they don't have any money - they are poor because they have a problem handling money.

Print more money seems like the obvious solution. /s

The video is taken nowhere near the Pacific Ocean. It's just north of Anaheim, you know where Disneyland is? You can very briefly see the Big A which advertises where the Angels play.

Anybody who thinks this is a "beautiful bike trail", with or without tents, must live in a hell hole. It's fucking awful.

This California news will fade away when the Oroville dam starts springing big leaks.  Once upon a time, the Golden State was just that, before the likes of Pelosi, Brown, Feinstein and Reagan wrecked the place with insane policies like the "three strikes" law sponsored by prison guards who wanted to earn over $100,000 a year, after overtime. Mission accomplished for them.  Now cars on the 405 highway leaving Los Angeles on a holiday weekend need three hours to leave the city.  A four day work week, not a $30 billion railway project, would cut the congestion.  But the peasants must work at least 5 days in a week, the billionaires demand it.

i got news for some people...this IS THE UTOPIA...! wait til the shtf. there wont be food handouts and welfare check. it will be real at that point......better toughen up.

Same difference

Big difference: if we get attacked in Ca we pull out a gun, not blow a whistle or whatever their defensive strategy is in France

Frito's picture

They only have Parkour, the French art of running away

vato poco's picture

....running away with style. with a contemptuous, world-weary sneer at those who are chasing them away from their homes and their country.

they think that makes it ok. (fronsh accent) "welll, ze afreecains have turned our country into a sheet'ole, but they cannot tell a decent wine from beer - (gallic sneer) - and they don't know how we mock them for not having ONE single decent chef among them! ha ha ha ha!! a pity about the destruction of the 'ole country, but - (gallic shrug) - what should we do? fight for it?!?"

yet another reason in the long long list of reasons the entire world despises the french.

Better off getting attacked then face the consequences of what the leftist, Bolshevik courts will do to you for using it.

7thGenMO's picture

I like your call sign European American, and I agree that lying, crimimal Bolshevik scum have penetrated not only the court system in some states, but the educational system.

Traditional Americans will not survive unless we accept the reality that Bolsheviks see morality as a weakness.  They are intelligent and have studied Americans to deceive us.  There are signs, particularly in the rural areas, that Americans are starting to catch on to the dirty tricks, but we are fighting with one hand tied behind our backs because we do not control the fiat money supply.

pull out a california.....i am so scared with your 3 round magazines !

seattle has over 300 tent cities. they proposed a billion dollar budget (for everything) with a few hundred thousand to homeless.

state gov blames the homeless (FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS) for there fucking problems. they broadcast like the entire INCREASE in taxes and entire fucking billion dollar budgeta are the homeless fault.

typically fucking assholes.

nationstates's picture

Thats not a tent camp full of homeless people, its a resting place for illegal migrants in their designated sanctuary zone.  As for the crime, now thats a different story...gather resources using ones selfish inititive ?

Xena fobe's picture

No, the illegals own homes.  These are ALL whites.  Mexicans and Chinese rig the system for their own benefit.  Whitey gets screwed 

in4mayshun's picture

Illegals don't own homes. They cram 23 family and friends into a 1,600 sq ft house which is the only way they can afford to live in California.

Xena fobe's picture

Yes, large family groups buy.  Illegal is a fine line when some family members are legal, some are not.  They also flip houses.
