Some More Actual Facts About Baltimore

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As our fake news media once again tries to paint President Donald Trump as a “racist” for daring to speak the truth about the rank squalor in a Democrat-run city, here is what the New York Times had to say about it in a piece published in March of this year, a piece titled…wait for it…”THE TRAGEDY OF BALTIMORE”:

“On April 27, 2015, Shantay Guy was driving her 13-year-old son home across Baltimore from a doctor’s appointment when something — a rock, a brick, she wasn’t sure what — hit her car. Her phone was turned off, so she had not realized that protests and violence had broken out in the city that afternoon, following the funeral of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who drew national attention eight days earlier when he died after suffering injuries in police custody.

As she saw what was happening — fires being set, young people and police officers converging on the nearby vortex of the disorder — she pushed her son, Brandon, down in his seat and sped home.”

Oh.

“Guy grew up in an impoverished, highly segregated part of West Baltimore near what was now the focal point of the street clashes,”

Oh.

“Policing in Baltimore, Guy and many other residents believed, was broken, with officers serving as an occupying army in enemy territory — harassing African-American residents without cause, breeding distrust and hostility.”

Oh.

“But in the years that followed, Baltimore, by most standards, became a worse place. In 2017, it recorded 342 murders — its highest per-capita rate ever, more than double Chicago’s, far higher than any other city of 500,000 or more residents and, astonishingly, a larger absolute number of killings than in New York, a city 14 times as populous.”

Oh.

“…elected officials, from the governor to the mayor to the state’s attorney, struggled to respond to the rise in disorder, leaving residents with the unsettling feeling that there was no one in charge. With every passing year, it was getting harder to see what gains, exactly, were delivered by the uprising.”

Oh.

“It takes remarkable fortitude to remain an optimist about Baltimore today. I have lived in the city for 11 of the past 18 years, and for the last few I have struggled to describe its unraveling to friends and colleagues elsewhere.”

Oh.

“I have grown accustomed to scanning the briefs column in The Baltimore Sun in the morning for news of the latest homicides; to taking note of the location of the latest killings as I drive around town for my baseball coaching and volunteering obligations. In 2017, the church I attend started naming the victims of the violence at Sunday services and hanging a purple ribbon for each on a long cord outside. By year’s end, the ribbons crowded for space, like shirts on a tenement clothesline.”

Oh.

“Explaining all this to people outside Baltimore is difficult, not only because the experience is alien to those even in cities just up or down the Interstate from us (though a handful of cities elsewhere, like Chicago and St. Louis, have experienced their own waves of recent violence, albeit less dramatically than Baltimore).”

Oh.

The New York Times is obviously staffed by nothing but racists. It’s the only conclusion one can possibly reach based on the clamor going on in our fake news media today.

That is all.

    Dimocrats move in and there goes the neighborhood.

    My job required me to work in the North Baltimore area occasionally since November of 2018. In January of 2019, I fell ill with appendicitis and went to the Greater Baltimore Medical Center for attention.

    It was the dirtiest, nastiest, most disgusting “medical” facility that I’ve ever set foot in. I got a diagnosis of a non-burst appendix, checked myself out, and then drove 3 hours south to my home in Richmond, Va., and had my appendix removed there.

    Baltimore has fallen so far that the Triple Crown Race now held there is moving another town in Md., if that tells you anything.

    President Trump has described it perfectly.

    The Demoncrats don’t want you to look at LA, Baltimore, Chicago, NYC or other of their ‘success’ stories. They want you, the American Citizen, to simply accept that they can run the entire country like their showcase cities.

    Vote 2020 as if your life depended on it. It does.

    Detroit, where they sell abandoned homes for one dollar – with no buyers even at that!
