CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): This story is something that has really sparked a fair amount of conversation in our chat with our team, which is, so there's all this vagrancy and this homelessness. We shouldn't put up with it. They should be in mental institutions, put them in mental asylums, or give them, you know, a meal or some shelter. Treat them humanely, but get them off the streets. Enough. Okay? The vagrancy, the defecation, the drug usage, the sexual assaults, you know, look, the streets are not your home. Okay? We have to have order. You have to, clean up the filth, okay? Enough. The humane thing to do is to put them somewhere that is not on the streets.

So, but unfortunately, we live in this upside-down world where we use the force of government, not to clean up our streets, we use the force of government to go after our political dissidents, Steve Bannon, Tina Peters, Donald J. Trump, the list goes on, right? So businesses have had enough. It's impacting their bottom line, and this is so funny. This is in Chicago, my hometown, which has completely lost its mind. Chicago is not the city it used to be. It's a total hellscape. Get out if you're in Chicago. It's only gonna get worse.

Is now, this is so interesting and it ties into the previous topic somewhat. Is classical music is now being played outside of Walgreens, 7-Elevens, and department stores across the country as a deterrent for loitering and crime.

KIRK: So why would be playing classical music outside of department stores result in less crime or loitering?  And this, by the way, is extremely now, controversial. Liberals are complaining about this. Of course, because they hate classical music. They always have. They hate beautiful things. They are the ugly movement.


It says, according to, “the strategy has garnered criticism.” It's like, of all the things, that classical music being played in public places, We hate that! It's okay if you defecate. Perfectly fine if you're naked, twerking in front of an eight-year-old. That's progress. Classical music? You're a bigot.
