Stupid Liberal Idea of the Day: If It Ain’t Broke, Escape From Alcatraz

By Debbie Schlussel
You’ve no doubt heard of that tiny little attraction of the coast of San Francisco known as Alcatraz. It’s only the second most popular paid tourist attraction in San Fran, with 1.4 million visitors a year. (The most popular is the Liberace/Mike Brady Memorial Bath House/Disco/Laundromat. No, actually, the cable cars are number one).
But some lefties (is there any other sort of person in San Fran?) think that Alcatraz should be scrapped as a successful tourist attraction and made into . . . an international peace center?! HUH?


Super Tuesday: Legendary Alcatraz Under Attack by San Fran Lefty Loons

The proposal is on the loony San Fran Super Tuesday ballot today. No surprise, as the unofficial motto of Frisco is no longer, “Home of Rice-a-Roni.” Now, it’s: If it ain’t broke, “fix” it. Gives new meaning to the movie title, “Escape from Alcatraz,” and not in a good way. Those proposing this idea claim that a global peace center on Alcatraz would draw even more tourists than the former prison. Um, maybe a mental institution is more appropriate for the island . . . to house these delusionally afflicted.
A better idea: Make Alcatraz a prison for international peace activists. That combines the best of both ideas. Better yet, make it a prison for international peace activists and Gitmo detainees to battle it out for positions as martyrs for Allah. Then, it would make an even more spectacular tourist attraction. And libs would finally get their wish of closing Gitmo.

Good catch. Ever since “Native American” activists took over the island for an anti-Columbus Day (or anti-Thanksgiving day) event c. 1970, the little island attraction has been neutralized as symbol of the old, pre-1960s San Francisco.
The “Peace” movement is hellbent on institutionalizing, with “Peace Studies” growing on college campuses and Kucinich campaigning to establish a Cabinet-level Department of Peace. Don’t laugh….

From the linked story: “In its place one day could rise the peace center, perhaps a statue of St. Francis and a spiritual healing space the proposition’s sponsor calls a “harmonium.” ”
St. Francis? ST. FRANCIS?!?!?
How DARE these intolerant bigots suggest erecting a statue of a CATHOLIC SAINT on PUBLIC PROPERTY?!?
Proof once again that, indeed, there is no limit to leftist hypocrisy.

I grew up in the SF Bay Area, if I remember right, at one time there was talk of turning Alcatraz into an amusement park. A Peace Center would be about the same thing except there would be no rides.
