Lazy Democrats, tend to be All Mouth.



MAGA Supporters Clean 12 Tons Of Trash From West Baltimore Streets

Update: Who could have guessed? The left is angry that a Trump-supporter would dare to visit Baltimore and help improve the situation.

As we deatiled earlier, hundreds of MAGA supporters participated in a massive cleanup effort earlier this week in West Baltimore, inspired by President Trump's tweets, along with a conservative activist who organized the event in Rep. Elijah Cummings' district.

According to WBAL-TV Baltimore, 300 volunteers on Aug. 5 took to the streets of northwest Baltimore, cleaning up trash from alleyways in an "Americans Helping Americans" event organized by conservative activist Scott Presler.

Smelling Rats In Baltimore

Post by Riddick » 09-15-2019 04:45 PM

"Whoa, you can smell the rats. Whew, Jesus. Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals," exclaimed former Mayor Catherine Pugh, who is African American and was ousted from office over an investigation into corruption, reacting to a part of the city's abandoned row houses and alleys strewn with trash.

Why is the president called a "racist" for pointing out what even African-American leaders in Baltimore have said about certain areas of the city? Because the label has become the default position for liberal politicians and certain members of the media to deflect attention from real problems.

Baltimore has averaged 300 murders per year for several years. In 2015, it set a record with 344 homicides, according to the Sun. The newspaper, which has been highly critical of Trump's remarks about Cummings, reported last September on FBI statistics that showed "Baltimore had the worst homicide rate among the nation's 50 largest cities last year and the second-highest violent crime rate overall." Is it racist to point that out, or is it only racist when a white politician says it?

Instead of listening to politicians talk about Baltimore, elected officials and the media should be talking to people who have been trapped in these squalid areas. They might ask Democrats who have run the city (and other cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit and Flint, Michigan where homelessness, crime and filth abound) why they have done nothing to improve these neighborhoods. Many American cities with similar problems have been run by Democrats for decades. Why do voters keep returning them to office when their misery only deepens?

What would Democrats do if the poor and minority voters, who are their base, tried a different party and a different attitude? Democrats have promised much and delivered little to their base, at least since the 1930s when the federal government began to dispense welfare benefits, benefits that have fueled an addiction to entitlement programs and created an allegiance to the party most dedicated to keeping the checks coming in exchange for votes.

Democrats, like Rep. Cummings, have also opposed school choice. The ability to choose a better public, or private school for poor and minority children (with vouchers to pay for them) is an opportunity to improve their prospects and break out of the poverty cycle that for some families has been repeated for several generations.

Kimberly Klacik, who occasionally appears on Fox News, is a journalist and lives in Baltimore. She interviewed a local African-American woman named "Michelle," who said: "What (President Trump) said was definitely true. (Cummings) hasn't done anything for us. He's worried more about (caring for illegal aliens at the border) than his own people. Trump is not racist ... I'm glad he put (Cummings) on blast. The rats just didn't come. These houses just didn't get torn down, they've been like this."

Given these facts, to whom should the "racist" label be more accurately applied?
