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.

Elijah Cummings’ District is a “Third World Country.” – Bernie Sanders

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media are once again trying to label President Donald Trump as a “racist,” this time because he had the temerity to point out the truth about the squalid conditions in the West Baltimore congressional district represented since the time of Moses by Elijah Cummings, who happens to be a black man.

Here is a video of the conditions the President was talking about:

Baltimore is by and large a hell hole, but it is not alone. All one has to do is look at the list of cities that have been run exclusively or almost exclusively by Democrats for the last half-century to see that Baltimore has plenty of company on America’s list of failed/failing cities.

That list would include Democrat-run cities like Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles and many more. Democrat policies and governance lead to the squalid conditions that characterize much of Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore. Democrat politicians do nothing to improve such conditions, and in fact work to keep them in place because the most reliable Democrat voter is a poor, dependent Democrat voter.

This is simply a fact of our American existence. It is nothing new. It is why a rank demagogue like Elijah Cummings, despite having never accomplished a thing in his entire career that improved the lives of his constituents, just keeps getting re-elected to “represent” them every two years.

Indeed, in 2015, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders likened Cummings’ West Baltimore district to a “third world country,” and, standing with a group of Democrat city leaders, went on to say this:

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think you’re in a third-world country. What we are talking about is a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs. We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable.”

After the same outbreak of street violence that led to Sanders’ visit to West Baltimore, President Barack Hussein Obama his own self referred to the rioters as “criminals and thugs.”

Oh.

But again, Baltimore is far, far from alone. Think of what we have seen from Democrat-run cities in just the past few years:

In San Francisco, the city council’s legalization of pooping and peeing on the streets have very predictably led to a huge downturn in the city’s convention industry, as conventioneers for some reason don’t want to walk down sidewalks filled with human waste. Hard to imagine, right? How long will it be before the Democrats and media start labeling those fleeing conventioneers as “poopophobes?”

Oh, and the funniest thing about the San Fran poop situation is one of the “solutions” Democrat city leaders adopted earlier this year: Publishing a “poop map.”  Swear to God.

In Los Angeles, Democrat policies encouraging an explosion in the city’s homeless and illegal alien population has already led to outbreaks of previously-eradicated diseases like measles and tuberculosis, and now threaten to bring back…wait for it… the BUBONIC PLAGUE. I kid you not. 

Democrat policies in Portland, Oregon banning the police from doing anything effective to stop Antifa rioters have predictably led to… wait for it… MORE ANTIFA RIOTS.  You just cannot make this stuff up, folks.

Elijah Cummings’ district is indeed by and large a squalid hellhole in which few people would ever want to be stuck living. The dirty secret that your fake news media won’t tell you is that is exactly how he and his fellow Democrats want it to remain.

That is all.
