He Persisted: Citizen Activist Scott Presler Cleans Up L.A. Homeless Camp

He Persisted: Citizen Activist Scott Presler Cleans Up L.A. Homeless Camp

Asking the important question: “How can you clean the planet when you can’t clean your own city?”

Conservative activist Scott Presler (aka, “The Persistence”), famed for cleaning up a Baltimore neighborhood recently, organized a street clean-up at a homeless camp in Los Angeles this weekend.

Reports indicate that his volunteer crew cleared about 50 tons of trash from the area. The before-and-after video is astonishing.

The day started early, with the crew assembling at the corner of Van Nuys and Oxnard.

For some strange reason, I cannot locate much media coverage of this effort. Fortunately, a crew from NBC-LA filmed a report, which was the only official coverage from our local press that I could find.

Presler’s efforts made the regular “Streets of Shame” series.

After two hours of work, Presler’s team began seeing some progress. As a safety professional, I am glad to see they took the warnings about biological hazards seriously and wore hazmat suits during their clean-up efforts.

During the work, many people contrasted their efforts to those of the #ClimateStrike demonstrators. LA hip-hop artist and famous social media news analyst, An0maly, interviewed Presler. He noted how much more meaningful and productive his effort was to create a healthy environment.

An0maly asked a substantial question during his show: How can you clean the planet when you can’t clean your own city?

An0maly also made an excellent point that California supposedly has thousands of environmental activists. Therefore, why is Presler, a Virginia resident, leading this volunteer brigade?

Many Los Angeles residents expressed their gratitude for the clean-up.

There is no denying that Presler is to activism what Trump is to trolling. Presler has Republican voter registration drives within the bluest swaths of our state.

Presler’s philosophy is, “Stop talking. Start doing.” I would love to see him relocate to California and become Governor.

But, then again, he should be rewarded for his efforts instead of facing punishment.

Thank you so much, Scott!

THis is a teachable moment: Why is it out of staters and Conservatives have to do this?? The answers because liberal beleive Only government can run their lives and take care of any issue.

Admirable. Now let’s see it again in two weeks. Because I suspect they’ll have it totally crapified by then.

where was the hollywood celebrity class, they brag about being the activists but don’t want to do the dirty work. Then again getting ready for the emmys’s was more important.

He Wasted His Time. Give it a few days after he has left.

We’re reaching a point where it’s gonna start going NOT well for the lawless people walking around causing harm and blight.

The most important part of this is to show people how easy it is to clean the mess up, and that the government run by progs, and the progs themselves actually want you living in the filth.

    There is a point to that. But the main point is simply to make the world a slightly better place, if only for a few days. We say that it’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, and the fact that candles go out after a while doesn’t change that.
