The Washington Post (WaPo) tried to debunk President Donald Trump’s statement that “the most dangerous cities are run by democrats.” After an exhaustive effort, and a written piece reviewing different types of methodology for citation, what they basically came up with is that a republican mayor was elected to Jacksonville in the last election, therefore WaPo has declared that Trump’s claim: “the most dangerous cities are run by democrats”, is false, because there’s now a top-crime city now run by a republican.
Look at the tiny red among so much blue, and the red just turned red. How pathetic is their attempt to cover for inept Democrat policies destroying millions of people’s lives?
The problem with liberals is that they do everything they can to support other liberals, including going to great lengths to cover things up that cause liberals to look bad.
WaPo’s conclusion is one of the most asinine arguments they could have made. The writers there have the right to be stupid, but do they have to take us up on that right all the time?
To use an argument that because a republican was recently mayor elected mayor in a dangerous city is to be so stupid as to think that the argument conservatives make is that as soon as a republican would take over a Democrat jurisdiction with high crime rates that the crime rate would drop immediately. This is what WaPo wants you to believe that conservatives believe. And it appears that all the leftist news rags are jumping to the defense of Democrats.
For example, USA Today did a study based on Trump’s statement, and they claimed it was “Mostly False.” They pointed to a 2018 study from Boston University that found racial segregation is a key risk factor for homicides.
According to USA Today, David Kennedy, the director of the National Network for Safe Communities at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said, “You get a number. It’s completely accurate. And it’s deeply unrepresentative of what’s going on. Many American cities are the product of a long, long historical reality of white supremacy and racial violence and disproportionate action by the criminal justice system.”
So, to debunk Trump’s statement that the most violent cities are run by Democrats, a man with a long, respectable-sounding title is going the route of white supremacy, the new de facto excuse for everything that goes wrong in the black community. It’s nothing more than the flawed concept of “institutional racism” that is blamed on the problems of black people not being able to achieve something when an actual racist perpetrator can’t be found to place the blame on.
Here’s something none of these lying race hustlers will point out. If white supremacy is the root of all of the problems for black Americans in cities run by Democrats for decades, isn’t it then fair to say that it was Democrat policies that were the source of that white supremacy?
My numbers could be off slightly, because I got them from 2010 statistics, but I assure you they get worse, not better for Democrats:
1. St. Louis–Democrat Mayor for the last 61 years
2. Camden, NJ–Democrat Mayor for the last 24 years
3. Detroit–Democrat Mayor for the last 48 years
4. Flint, Mich.–Democrat Mayor for the last 35 years
5. Oakland–Democrat Mayor for the last 43 years
6. Richmond, Calif.–Democrat Mayor for the last 10 years
7. Cleveland, Ohio–Democrat Mayor for the last 22 years
8. Compton, California–no info avail. But has a Lib history
9. Gary, Ind.–Democrat Mayor the last 16 years
10. Birmingham, Ala.–Democrat Mayor for the last 35 years
11. Atlanta Democrat mayors since 1877
I wrote this a few years ago, and it hasn’t gotten any better since:
Every major city run by Democrats we see the same things: Chicago, Philadelphia, Camden, Newark, Baltimore, Ferguson, Cleveland, Compton, St. Louis, etc., they all have the same exact problems: high unemployment, high drug and alcohol abuse, high government dependency, high property crime rates, large high school drop out rates, high gun violence, and it’s all because of progressive Democrats who have run these cities for decades, some a hundred years.
Progressive Democrat policies breed environments of poverty and crime. They are anti-business, anti-capitalist and anti-people. What always happens in these cities is businesses are driven out by progressive Democrat policies, and then in order to hold onto power the municipalities create unneeded, wasteful government bureaucracies to create jobs to be filled by all those people who lost jobs due to the policies created by the same failing government. Governments produce nothing, they just take from the working men and women to exist. Cities that no longer manufacture anything become those breeding grounds for crime.
Anything written by leftist Fake News to defend the damage that Democrats have done to cities they’ve run for decades, specifically damage done to black communities under their jurisdictions, is pure bald-faced lies.
