“Deuce Bigalow” star Rob Schneider fled California over the Democratic Party’s attempt to “interfere with” every aspect of resident’s lives, and one state politician pushed him “over the edge.”
The “Daddy Daughter Trip” star told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” that he “had it” with the state’s liberal leadership.
“I really feel like I don’t want the Democratic Party trying to run my life,” he said. “And there’s not one aspect of your life that they don’t want to interfere with. So I had it with them. So I got out of California and moved to the slightly freer state of Arizona.”
The former Democrat, because “you have to be if you live in San Francisco,” said that “taxes” and the Golden State’s leadership had motivated him to leave.
“[Gavin] Newsom pushed me over the edge,” he said about California Governor. “I mean, it’s just like, I just don’t think your life gets better there. It gets worse.”
The former San Francisco resident believed he “had it made” in the city, until officials told him to remove the flower pots in front of his house that were seemingly being used as toilets by the homeless.
“Maybe I’m looking at this all wrong,” he joked. “San Francisco either has a huge homeless problem or a gigantic camping success story.”
According to Fox News, the city’s residents are arming themselves with weapons after a tax payer funded drug sobering center opened in the upscale SoMA district, which has reportedly spiked crime and violence.
Democratic Mayor London Breed touted the facility as a “a safe indoor space for people who are intoxicated with opioids, methamphetamines or other substances to come in off the streets, rest and stabilize.”
But residents allege that the more than 1,000 visitors to the HealthRight 360 operated center have caused a “period of insanity” in the Golden City.
“They’re letting their clients come out here and get high, go inside and get sober and then get high again,” a local business owner remarked.
“Every morning it’s a roulette. When you show up at your office, are there going to be 10 people passed out in front of your building? Are they going to be violent? This was never a problem before HealthRight 360 moved in,” added another resident.
“If you ask me, it should be closed down and there should be other approaches to the homeless and drug problem we’re all facing,” he concluded.
HealthRight 360 CEO Vitka Eisen pleaded for San Franciscans to “be patient with us,” while violence escalates in their neighborhoods.
“We can’t fix everything, but we’re a piece of that; a piece of the city trying novel things to respond to people experiencing homeless and street drug use and mental illness,” Eisen remarked.
Schneider told “Fox & Friends,” that a at a certain point, you have to say, enough of this, and stand up to it,” and said he leapt across the political aisle because he wanted to belong to a party that represented his “core values.”
The comedian also noted that plenty of celebrities are closet conservatives to preserve their careers.
“A lot of people that I’m friends in Hollywood, they lean towards the right, but they’re just scared of it because it really is like a mob of ideologues. They will attack you,” he remarked.
