San Fran socialist who called for Blue Angels to be banned whines about ‘strange’ backlash

A Democratic city council member from San Francisco, a self-avowed democratic socialist, is frustrated because his call to ban the famed Blue Angels from flying over his city went viral.

To hear District 5 Supervisor Dean Preston tell it, what happens in the liberal city is no one’s business if they don’t reside there.

The popular U.S. Navy squadron was scheduled to participate in a Fleet Week show on Sunday, but their appearance was canceled due to weather conditions. Subsequently, the liberal politician felt compelled to declare in a tweet: “The Blue Angels should not be allowed to fly over San Francisco. That’s it. That’s the tweet.”

Suffice it to say, his take didn’t fly so well outside the America-hating left, with Preston being taken to task by social media users who pointed to the myriad of problems facing the Golden Gate City.

His response? Aside from white liberal playing the race card — that’s a given — Preston complained about people with “no connection to the Bay Area” having an opinion and worse yet, daring to criticize local elected officials.

“Why are so many people who are outside San Francisco with no connection to the Bay Area so focused on San Francisco housing policy and constantly attacking SF tenants, BIPOC residents, and progressive local elected officials? It’s really strange.”

It’s almost as if the Democrat doesn’t realize that Twitter is not limited to San Francisco, though his response seems to expose the reality that he exists in his own little progressive bubble. On a more positive note, there’s hope yet that liberal voters can have an epiphany after San Francisco voters booted pro-criminal District Attorney Chesa Boudin earlier this year in response to crime overtaking their city.

What’s not so strange is that if you ask a question after stirring up a dust storm you can expect a few responses… though Preston is probably not going to appreciate the views pouring in.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
