Dr. Drew and Los Angeles’ homeless industrial complex

“Con-Passion.”

  • Con-passion is what you hear when well-paid activists insist that it’s not compassionate to discuss treatment for substance use disorder or severe mental illness in relation to solving the homelessness crisis.

  • Con-passion is the smug look on the faces of government officials who hand their friends billions of tax dollars for salaries and contracts in the name of helping the homeless. Con-passion is the policy of providing tents, food and monthly government checks to people who are dying of drug addiction.

  • What makes this a con, if it isn’t already obvious, is that a lot of people who are not helping the homeless are making a ton of money for talking about helping the homeless.
