In September of 2018, Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was doing a walkthrough of some Baltimore neighborhoods. You can clearly tell by her comments that she had never seen, let alone actually walked through these parts of her own city. On video mind you, she is heard commenting:
• “What the hell? We should just take all this shit down.”
• “Whoa, you can smell the rats.”
• ” Whew, Jesus… Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals.”
And not a single person called Pugh a racist for her words.
In 2015 Bernie Sanders toured Baltimore and was visibly shocked and angry about what he saw under the city’s Democratic leadership:
“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” stated Sanders. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”
“But today what we’re talking about is a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs,” he added. “We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable.” And not a single person called Sanders a racist for his words.
Here is the transcript of Trump’s tweet: “Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men and women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA. As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming’s District is a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”
But even though Trump repeats the same facts about Baltimore as did Sanders and Pugh, he is… yep you guessed it… a RACIST!
Why does the media and Democrats continually wail and cry “RACIST” every time President Trump says or Tweets anything? Surely not everything Pres. Trump says is racially biased and/or motivated, is it? I’m not really a fan but I’ve not heard him use racial terms in reality.
The media just projects, and reports as fact, what they wish and think he meant. If Trump doesn’t like rayon socks, they would call that racist.
Well according to the fake news/lying media and the Democrats, everything Trump does and says is racist, EVERYTHING! The video below is approx. 20 minutes and it is a revealing look into this racial war against our President while ignoring the actual racism of the media, Democrats and their followers.
Let’s see how the media reported on two old white guys and their similar comments:
Bernie Sanders recently called Baltimore worse than a 3rd World Country, yet he was held up as a brave and enlightened human being and was a true hero for saying it. The media loved him and said he was 100% correct.
President Trump says the same basic thing and he’s labeled a “RACIST hater”. He talked about the rats, trash, crime, drugs, and squalor of a major US city located in the state of Maryland. Trump never uttered A RACIAL REMARK OR WORD mind you, yet the media and Dems are calling him a Nazi, fascist, racist, etc over his remarks.
Note that neither Pugh nor Sanders nor Trump mentioned race, blacks, negro, brown people, darkies, n*****s, people of color, etc. Yet only Trump was deemed a racist.
Only the Democrats and their media use the race card over anything and everything they don’t like and/or agree with. EVERYTHING conservatives do is now racist to the Dems and their media.
WHERE is the “racist” language”? WHERE is the “racist” rant? WHERE is the “vicious attack”? HOW are his words “dangerous and racist”? WHERE are the “lies”? Only a moron could even think that by reading his tweet.
The fact remains that Baltimore IS a sh*thole that has been purposely kept that way by Democratic leadership for decades so that they can use the people as “Perpetual Victims” for the media. This despite the Federal Government allocating BILLIONS of dollars to the city to fight blight and help the citizens over the past several decades.
The money has been stolen and pilfered by the city’s political leadership, including Rep. Cumming’s corrupt wife Maya Rockeymoore Cummings who has laundered millions via her charities and other groups it is being alleged.
And for the record, Cummings has been calling Pres. Trump a racist, treasonous, an orange clown, Putin’s bitch, and a host of other unsavory terms for 2+ years non-stop.
For the record, Baltimore is overrun with rats and rodents, trash is littered all over the streets and sidewalks, crime is rampant, gangs control the streets, BLM runs roughshod over the citizenry, you can’t walk the streets safely at any hour of the day or night, drug use is out of control, and the cities leaders are corrupt and drain the city coffers for their own use.
Basically in Baltimore, as in LA, SanFran, Camden, etc. the People Be Damned. Yet Baltimore is a “sanctuary” city, protecting illegal criminal aliens and offering them FREE medical care, housing, food, etc. forever.
In April the Baltimore Sun Editorial Board wrote a scathing review of their city and its state:
“Food containers, balled up clothes, paper, banana peels, plastic bags and tons of other pieces of litter line the shoulders of roads, pile up in alleys and are strewn across fields and yards,” an editorial in the newspaper said. “Not only is it unsightly and contributes to a rodent problem, but it can create a glum and gloomy feel in a time when the city is already facing self-esteem issues because of high crime and the scandal surrounding the University Maryland Medical System and Mayor Catherine Pugh, who’s now on an indefinite leave, and her Healthy Holly books. If anything, the city needs a major scrubbing to help restore some of its faith and image.”
And Mayor Pugh resigned in May, shortly after the article was published.
So when the Baltimore Sun and Bernie Sanders calls out the city’s trash reputation it’s an act of public service, but when President Trump does the same thing it’s racist?
ALLEGATION: Baltimore is a dangerous city.
Baltimore is deadlier than Chicago and Detroit, according to crime statistics released by the FBI, and Baltimore had the highest homicide rate in the nation in 2018, as reported by USA Today.
Additionally, GunViolenceArchives.org reports that Baltimore was responsible for more than half of the “gun incidents” in Maryland, while Baltimore accounted for nearly half of the state’s murders involving a weapon.
FINAL ANALYSIS: President Trump was absolutely correct to call Maryland’s 7th Congressional District a “disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”
The truth is that what’s happening in places like Baltimore has nothing to do with race. But it has everything to do with politics and inept Democratic lawmakers who have turned their backs on their most vulnerable constituents, which is exactly what Pres. Trump has stated repeatedly.
Baltimore IS the proverbial “shithole” that we normally ascribe to places like Nueva Laredo and Tijuana, Mexico. Sometimes the truth hurts, and this truth should be extremely painful.
But pointing out how bad a city is run is not racist. It’s the sensible thing to do. You can’t fix a problem if you refuse to admit there is a problem. Yet Cummings and Baltimore’s “leaders” say their city is cleaner, more safe and in better shape than most US cities. But of course, they couldn’t actually name a city that is in worse shape than theirs, though Camden N.J. may be in the running.
Here are proof positive photos of the squalor and living conditions in Baltimore. I’ve left out the hundreds of photos of the millions of rats infesting the city (because they’re gross!).
