Liberal Idiocy: San Francisco is trying to ban tech employees from using company cafeterias

California progressivism never ceases to amaze. Now San Francisco is trying a weird form of forced capitalism, which is kind of an oxymoron.

As usual, it's all about control.

This time it has to do with the massive campuses of big tech companies, and all of the on-site amenities they provide employees. Too many amenities apparently. So, the city is working on an ordinance to force employees at these big tech firms to go out for lunch.

If it passes, the ordinance will prohibit new campus construction from having a company cafeteria at all. See, the problem according to the city's progressive officials, is that the campuses are too cushy, too convenient, and too insular. They're trying to force employees at these companies away from the free, often gourmet, meals that they're offered as a perk of working at their particular company, and out into the neighborhood to support local restaurants instead.

San Francisco didn't come up with this brilliant plan on its own. Mountain View, California has already banned Facebook from serving free meals at its new campus that opens there this fall.

It gets better. Under the proposed San Francisco law, current employees would be grandfathered-in so they could continue using existing cafeterias, but new employees would be banned from using the company cafeteria. H.R. is going to love explaining that one.

Progressive priorities are weird.

San Francisco is upset that tech companies got tax breaks in 2011 to move into a troubled area of the city called Mid-Market. Several companies, including Twitter, Square, and Uber moved in, but the neighborhood still hasn't taken off like the city hoped.

Aaron Peskin, a city supervisor who is co-sponsoring the bill says, "These tech companies have decided to leave their suburban campuses because their employees want to be in the city, and yet the irony is, they come to the city and are creating isolated, walled-off campuses. This is not against these folks, it's for them. It's to integrate them into the community."

It could be the walled-off campus thing, or it might just be that tech workers prefer not to walk to a local restaurant and risk getting jabbed with heroin needles by San Francisco's estimated 22,000 intravenous drug users.

The city wants to ban company cafeterias, and it just opened two "safe" heroin injection sites for addicts. Progressive priorities are weird.

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.
