The frothing animals will soon be at your doorstep.

Demonstrations against the grip on San Francisco held by wealthy technology workers took a personal turn on Friday with protesters taking aim at a Google lawyer they say personifies the tensions being stirred by abundant tech money.

Jack Halprin, a landlord in the city’s gentrifying Mission district, became the focus of the latest blockade of a tech company commuter bus, with protesters demanding Google ask Halprin to rescind eviction notices he has sent his tenants.

Protesters told Reuters they will increasingly target individuals as part of a strategy to draw attention to the growing divide between rich and poor in San Francisco, a rift widened by a tech industry boom that is inflating rents and exacerbating social problems such as evictions.

This isn’t an anomaly, it is the endgame for progressive redistribution. There is some delicious irony in the fact that the income inequality angst is bubbling over in the city that also serves as the leftist mothership. But it is a dangerous precedent. They are going after individuals and, as we have seen with almost all prog protests, it will eventually turn violent.

The sad thing is that most of the Democrats who like to stir the class warfare pot are too stupid to know they are advocating for precisely this kind of behavior. It is all part of the consequence-free dreamland they live in.

No, the very satisfying part of all this is that they are finally eating their own in force. The lie they tell themselves is that it won't affect them. Now, one of their very own is being directly affected.

Reap the whirlwind.

Instead of picking on the techies, they should divert the water that flows into San Fran, thanks to Nancy, and send it to the farm lands that are drying up.

Irony in your Diet Department: If they succeed in driving "the rich" out of San Fran, it will go the way of Detroit and Chicago.

Remember when Roseanne said that the rich who couldn't be re-educated should be beheaded?

I am pretty sure that violence, some downright personal violence, is already baked into the pie for the whole country. I expect that it will become widespread after one or more killings by the State in support of totalitarian principles that these wastes of protoplasm would love. But they will continue to attack people who have more than they do.

Given the zone of operations where this is taking place, eventually the smarter of the capitalist types will beat feet. The rest after few violent attacks. I, for one, will just sit back and enjoy the show.

Every time I've encountered one of those 'kill the rich' types I've explained to him that somewhere there is a group of people who sees HIM as rich". Unfortunately the light bulb never goes on.

The more people in the country, the more customers, and the more money becomes concentrated. But... the less worth workers have.

So they want Google to do what, leave?
Are they aware that just about everything tech companies do can be virtualized? Why would anyone want to live in Crazyfornia, where there are welcoming places like Arizona, Texas, Florida or even India?
There is already net migration of knowledge workers and capital away from California. Stories like this just make the decision to leave that much easier.
