Getting the nickname ” Murderapolis again.
Bwahahahaha! Even though Dem cities lead overwhelmingly in violent crime on an absolute and per-capita basis. Yeah, crime doesn’t matter. That is why people flee crime-ridden cities, stupid.
I highly recommend watching this hour long special. It vividly illustrates what happens when radical leftists rule a big city. Seattle has devolved into a hellish pit of drugs, filth, crime and lawlessness, largely because the far-left Democrat government is no longer enforcing the law. Seattle now ranks number two in the country in property crime among US big cities, trailing only….wait for it……San Francisco.
This is a very important show.
Crossings are down, apprehensions are up, which the WaPo grudgingly admits to but sees as “bad”. And so far there isn’t even a wall. Put in simple economic terms, something that Leftists cannot comprehend: people respond to incentives.
If you tell an illegal they will be arrested and deported, they are far less likely to hand over their life savings to a coyote (smuggler) to get in the US.
Now, at the opposite end of the spectrum, murders are out of control in Baltimore after the police were basically ordered to stand down or be labeled “racist” by the majority black population. So what happened? Crime is way up. And who suffers? Law-abiding blacks. I wonder if BLM cares? Baltimore is reaping what it has sown.
Now that Obama is gone, the press has suddenly discovered the carnage in American cities. It’s as if violent crime suddenly was turned on by a switch. Wait, I thought Trump was all “dark” when he talked about this?
The left has decried Donald Trump’s “dark” view of America in his inauguration speech. They are guilty of hypocrisy and projection, par for the course.
Fact: in many big cities violent crime is way up. Especially murders among blacks.
Fact: we have millions more in poverty and on government assistance since Obama became president. Drug use is rampant.
Fact: anarchy and crime are on the rise in Democrat-run cities, and at the border.
Fact: millions have lost their good paying jobs.
That is what Trump is talking about. Instead, the left’s “dark” view of America is characterized by a supposed return of slavery, women being jailed for seeking abortions, illegals and Muslims being rounded-up and deported or detained, and the environment being destroyed.
Who has the real “dark” view of America?
Judges and juries keep acquitting the cops that BLM calls racist:
Things Obama needs to say about black crime but won’t:
He was uniquely positioned to bring to light and address the problems of minorities and the poor that are their own doing: unwed mothers, drugs, thug culture, crime, lack of personal responsibility, poor education (you can blame this one on the government and teacher’s unions). Not that racism doesn’t exist but it is far from the root of any of these problems. Instead he cast blame entirely on imagined institutional racism and white, making the situation far worse.
