Conservative activist and Trump supporter Scott Presler is at it again, embarrassing local and state Democratic officials by taking it upon himself to organize, disperse and command a volunteer army of street cleaners to venture into filth riddled progressively controlled cities like Baltimore, Newark, N.J., and Virginia Beach, and giving those neglected dirty enclaves a little TLC.
Presler along with a few key volunteers decided to travel across the fruited plains all the way to sun-drenched California into a section of the city dubbed skid row.
Last week, President Trump, vowed to invoke the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to help remedy the growing health crisis — because of the overwhelming conditions of unbridled filth and disease along with the squalor living conditions within the homeless encampment of makeshift tents and cardboard homes.
“If people are feeling inspired, don’t just tweet and Facebook,” Presler told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Stop talking, start doing.”
The pro-Trump activist said he got a group of about 200 volunteers together in Los Angeles by using Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get his message out and encourage people to sign up for his 9-hour cleaning haul.
His team was equipped with hazmat suits — most of which were donated — as well as masks to cover their mouths, heavy-duty gloves, and safety instructions to avoid being exposed to life-threatening diseases including typhus, typhoid fever, and flesh-eating bacteria.
At the end of the 9-hours, the team of volunteers reported that they measured the trash by filling up “three 10-to-12-ton dumpsters, and the dumpsters were overflowing, and those were just the three that we filled,” plus other trash bins. They estimated 50 tones of trash was cleaned up within a section of skid row
“L.A. is completely different than Baltimore,” Presler said. “How crazy is it that it’s 2019 — not the Stone Age — and here we are, having to worry about these kinds of diseases?”
Presler reveals he was inspired to come to LA after reading an article about the Reverend Andy Bales, who is the CEO of a Christian homeless shelter in LA called Union Rescue Mission, and how he lost his leg due to an infection after he stepped in human waste as he was going around skid row dispensing much needed spiritual and bodily aid.
Rev Bales revealed how the infection began as a blister, that wouldn’t heal, growing worst until after about two years, doctors were forced to amputate his leg in order to prevent the disease from spreading.
However LA is simply his latest effort, Presler is planning on organizing teams of clean-up volunteers in the coming months in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Detroit, with others slated for next year.
Presler took a moment after the 9-hour cleanup campaign to share a heartwarming story about a woman living in the skid row neighborhood that was just cleaned out.
She thanked him for keeping his promise to clean up the area, a promise I’m sure she’s probably heard from elected officials like Governor Newsom and LA Mayor Garcetti.
