You folks may find this difficult to believe, but the weeks-long looting, rioting, and protesting in Minneapolis have created some unintended consequences. Well, unintended for clueless politicians and the leftists in academia.
Nearly a quarter of the homes for sale and 43% of the apartments for rent in Minneapolis hit the market since violent rioting began in the city.
It appears that residents of Minneapolis are looking to leave their city amidst a wave of unrest and a campaign lead by the progressive city council to abolish its own police force. 22% of the 612 homes listed for sale in Minneapolis on Zillow were posted there within the last two weeks. A staggering 43% of the 740 apartments for rent listed on Zillow hit the site since the riots began. Zillow is the premiere online real estate service. (H/T – TX Nick)
The good news is you can purchase a fabulous home mere blocks away from the University of Minnesota campus. The bad news is to get there, you have to walk through a neighborhood which makes Mogadishu look like Beverly Hills.
I feel sorry for the good people who will be trapped after the exodus – and trust me, there will be thousands of them – but I have no sympathy for the people who continually elected Democrats in that city. You did this; not Trump, nor the police, nor anyone else.
