It’s Time for Baltimore to Vote Red

When it comes to Baltimore, Democrats are all talk and no action.

During a recent committee meeting, Representative Eugene Cummings of Baltimore unloaded on Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan over conditions in migrant camps along the border, far away from Maryland. Cummings represents Maryland’s 7th Congressional District, as he has for 13 terms. That’s a long time for one person to hold an office he so clearly does not deserve.

Migrants have always made the dangerous trek north, and immigration raids are nothing new, even before the existence of ICE.

The only thing that is new about the situation is the Democrats suddenly caring about it. While the Dems use migrant children for photo ops, they are showing how much they really care about impoverished and at-risk kids in their very own communities. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Baltimore.

In response to Cummings’s vebal tirade, President Trump came out swinging. He called Cummings out on Baltimore, describing the city as being filthy and riddled with crime. Even as they stand in the middle of the filth and crime, willfully blind to it in the name of political outrage, snowflakes are swearing the president’s comments are racist.

Yes, Patriots, it’s time to play the race card again. The Dems do it over and over again while never doing a single thing for people of color. Their marketing is so effective that they have people in their own districts duped into believing they are good guys.

In a tweet that refers to the president’s comments about Baltimore,  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi described the president as a racist. Joe Biden, of course, also had to throw in his two cents. In a tweet he said of the president, “Once again, you have proven yourself unfit to hold the office (of president).”

Bernie Sanders is running against Joe Biden in the Democrat primary. Will he also claim Sanders is an unfit racist because he made similar comments about Baltimore in the past when he likened it to a Third World country?

President Trump’s observations about conditions in Baltimore have nothing to do with race and everything to do with the fact the president has two functioning eyes. Anyone who is willing to look can see his words are true, but to admit the problem would mean being morally responsible for fixing it. This is something Democrat lawmakers aren’t willing to do.

Charm City Deserves Better

One thing many Baltimore residents agree on is the city’s sense of community. The residents are friendly, and there is a thriving arts scene. The city’s residents’ outrage in the wake of Trump’s remarks, however, is misguided. Baltimore, like many of the country’s poorly run cities, is controlled by Democrats, and it has been for a long time.

President Trump is demanding better for the people who live in Baltimore, but instead they are viewing it as racism. Why? The answer is simple: The Democrats told them to believe it, and they take their word at face value despite decades of proof they should not.

On a state and federal level, Maryland has only two MAGA politicians: Governor Larry Hogan, and Representative Andy Harris of the 1st Congressional District. So the Democrats are running the show and should be held accountable, but as usual they have not been. In the 2016 presidential election, 85.4% of the city’s voters chose Hillary Clinton, with just 10.9% voting for President Trump.

Thanks to years of Democrat leadership, the good people of Baltimore can now look forward to:

 

  • Government corruption – The Democrat leaders in this city are only in it for themselves, and it shows. Taxes are high, but the resources that are supposed to go to the community are instead diverted for their own interests. The president said Cummings’s district should be investigated, and he is correct.

 

  • Police corruption – The Baltimore police are notoriously corrupt. Drugs and gangs have taken many parts of the city over, and the police do nothing about it.

 

  • Poverty – Over 25% of Cummings’ district, which is over 50% black, lives in poverty. There is garbage everywhere, and the stench of rotting rodent carcasses permeates the air. There are plenty of vacant houses that could be used to house the homeless, but the government can’t be bothered with it.

 

  • Poor schools – The city’s schools rankings are among the lowest in the state. Corrupt politicians have not been distributing money to the schools the way they would if they actually cared about the city’s kids or their futures.

 

  • Low life expectancy – In the city’s most poverty-stricken neighborhoods, the average life expectancy is a shocking 20 years below the national average. In fact, eight neighborhoods have lower life expectancies than Syria.

 

  • Robberies – Baltimore ranks first for robberies in the nation. In Baltimore, 958.71 out of every 100,000 residents can expect to be the victim of a robbery, compared with a national average of 102.8.

 

  • Murder – Baltimore has the highest murder rates in the country, with over 300 murders in the city each year since 2015. The murder rate in the city is 56 per 100,000, compared to a national average of 24. And so far in 2019, the city is on-track to surpass their record. This in a city with strict guns laws that are clearly not working.

 

In response to Trump’s tweets about Baltimore, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called the president a racist. In a tweet she said, “We all reject racist attacks against (Cummings), further reinforcing the cherished Liberal belief that all Conservative beliefs are hate speech and everything their team says is beyond reproach.

Joe Biden, of course, also had to throw in his two cents. In a tweet he said of the president, “Once again, you have proven yourself unfit to hold the office (of president).” Bernie Sanders is running against Joe Biden in the Democrat primary. Will he also claim Sanders is an unfit racist because he made similar comments about Baltimore in the past when he likened it to a Third World country?

President Trump’s observations about conditions in Baltimore have nothing to do with race and everything to do with the fact the president has two functioning eyes. Anyone who is willing to look can see his words are true, but to admit the problem would mean being morally responsible for fixing it. This is something Democrat lawmakers aren’t willing to do.

Baltimore residents, before you visit the polls in 2020, you might want to take an objective look at which team is really willing to go to bat for you.
