SF Weekly Letters For June 9 - 15, 2016 



Making San Jose protest again: Something is really wrong with our country when this kind of behavior is done by white people and it's ok, but when anyone Not White or Not Trump does it, it's time for somber reflection and fingerpointing and "ooh bad protesters" ("We're Giving Trump Exactly What He Wants," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 6/3/16). Trump and his supporters have been happy to beat up non Trump supporters early and often, Trump encourages it. You're surprised people are fighting back? Worse, you're attacking anyone for daring to push back? Find the white guy in this byline! NeverTrumpEver

Red meat in a blue state: That's an amusing take on a bunch of violent people waving the Mexican flag and chasing down and attacking innocent people that did nothing. Sounds like you're blaming the victims, Trump, and everybody but the actual perpetrators. CaptainObvious


Homelessness, post-911: The new calls are due to all the transplants from other states who can't hang ("City Spends $20 Million a Year Pursuing the Homeless," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 6/1/16"). Not to mention the homeless population increased when everyone started to get pushed out of their neighborhoods by the transplants that make more money to pay higher rent. Golf clap to you, America. Elizabeth S Rehme, via Facebook


Two thumbs up: I had a really fun experience at BottleRock ("Festival Recap: Superlatives and Field Notes From BottleRock 2016," Zack Ruskin, All Shook Down, 5/31/16). I want to thank the festival organizers for booking so many Bay Area bands! I LOVED IT! Stefan Aronsen


Why save when you can destroy? Millennials are just natural born Libertarians ("Millennial Problems: Cash to (Literally) Burn," Max DeNike, The Snitch, 6/1/16). Nathaniel Brandon


Last month, the UK Guardian revealed that a contributor to their publication appeared to have fabricated quotes and reporting. That writer had also contributed two articles to SF Weekly in 2016. We immediately launched an editorial investigation and discovered both articles featured sources who deny ever speaking to the reporter. Other sources could not be found. Concerned these stories were fabricated, we have removed the stories from our archives. We apologize to our readers.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
