Another Hollywood Star Ditches Crime-Ridden California, Declaring It “Not a Safe Place”

Scott Baio,  the 62-year-old actor and long-time resident of Los Angeles, just announced that he has had enough of California and so is going to leave it. Such is what he announced on Twitter, taking the same step as many who are sick of its left-wing politics, omnipresent crime, city-destroying homelessness, rampant lawlessness, and the grim future of the state as it slides into a quagmire of its own making.

So, he’s taking his family out of there before it’s too late so that they can have a brighter life elsewhere. Posting about his decision on Twitter, Baio said:

After 45 years, I’m making my way to finally “exit stage right” from California.

“The most recent survey conducted by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found approximately 69,000 people experiencing homelessness in L.A. County and 41,000 in the city in 2022.”

He also said, when asked why he wouldn’t stay and try to help the state, “That’s like rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic!

He also said, in the context of homelessness in LA, “This brings down property value. Also no consequences for crime that is rampant, making things higher in price and it’s just not a safe place anymore. #ImFree”

Baio is far from the only Hollywood personality to leave California as things get worse and worse. Actor Mark Wahlberg left for the sake of his family as well, saying, “It’s really giving the kids a chance to thrive,” Wahlberg went on to elaborate: “It just has the best of both worlds. I know a lot of people, when they think Las Vegas, they think the Strip. But just about 15, 20 minutes away, there’s a whole lot of other amazing areas that are all about family and community.”

Similarly, hit podcast host Joe Rogan said that he left California for Texas so that he could have more freedom, saying, “I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere it’s easier to travel to both places and somewhere we have a little bit more freedom.”

Rogan also said, in that episode, that there are “too many people” in LA, that the homelessness problem (which Biao also said), the traffic is horrible, and the “economic despair” makes it unpleasant and difficult to live there.

Similarly, the Daily Wire left California for Tennessee, with Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro saying at the time, “We’ve been asked over and over and over again when we would leave California. The answer: now. See you in Nashville, gang!” Continuing, he added, “I’ve lived my entire life in California. Within weeks, we’ll be taking our 75 jobs and leaving. We’re not the first. And we certainly won’t be the last. Terrible governance has consequences.

California is one of the most naturally beautiful states in the union, with its massive redwoods, picturesque beaches, and wonderful weather along the coasts. But, though beautiful and naturally pleasant, the horrible governance of the state has forced out those with the means to leave and the presence of mind to get out of the anarchotyranny filled state.
