For decades, the Democrat Party has inflicted upon the once great cities of this country policies that have done little more than to turn many of those same cities into little more than cesspools of impoverishment. Neighborhoods have been shattered and families are often housed, doctored, educated, and even fed by an army of bureaucrats. There’s a misery in many of America’s inner cities that projects perpetual poverty. Such are the policies that Democrats would love nothing more than to force upon every American citizen, no matter where it is that they may live. There would be no escape, no safe haven and no place to hide.
What I’ve listed below are but a few of the policies that demonstrate just how it is that the Democrat Party has gone about its mission to systematically, and very purposefully, destroy America’s inner cities. Policies that have done nothing more than to virtually guarantee that those trapped within such cities are put on the road to ruin on every level. And all while taking the voters who live in these cities for granted. And sadly, the gullible who are on the receiving end of these nightmarish polices are either too ignorant, too foolish, or simply too willing to go along with them, to take it upon themselves to try to change their toxic environment.
The first of those policies to emerge out of the gate is that unmitigated disaster that we know as Obamacare. The sad truth is that middle class Americans and African-Americans in the inner cities in this country aren’t benefiting from ObamaCare when compared to other groups. According to an extensive 65-page report by The Urban Institute, obtaining coverage has been much harder for black Americans than it has been for Hispanics and American Indians. And in February, black business owners railed against a decision by Barry’s administration to funnel millions in Obamacare subsidies to illegal immigrants.
Next comes Barry’s plan for executive amnesty. And what we see here is how hardworking black Americans in America’s inner cities are being crushed under the weight of an illegal alien workforce, that has been rapidly expanding as a direct result of the policies of Barry “Almighty”. Peter Kirsanow, an official with the U.S. Civil Rights Commission wrote to Barry and the Congressional Black Caucus in 2013. It was at that time that he said, “Granting work authorization to millions of illegal immigrants will devastate the black community, which is already struggling in the wake of the recession that began in 2007 and the subsequent years of malaise.”
Mr. Kirsanow also argued that illegal immigration has severely depressed the labor force participation rate of low-skilled blacks. He said, “Illegal immigration has a disparate impact on African-American men, because these men are disproportionately represented in the low-skilled labor force.” A recent survey by the Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO) shows a majority of black voters in several states strongly support school choice, and many favor the option to send their children to public charter schools. And yet they vote for those candidates who call themselves ‘pro-choice’ except when it comes to ‘school choice.’
BAEO surveyed 2,400 black voters from inner cities Alabama, Louisiana, New Jersey, and Tennessee. The poll was conducted in August by JMC Analytics and Polling. More than two-thirds of the black voters surveyed in Louisiana, New Jersey, and Tennessee support pubic charter schools over traditional pubic schools. And in August, Gallup released its 46th annual PDK/Gallup Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools which showed that six in ten Americans – black, Hispanic, and, white adults – favor charter schools and support a parent’s right to choose their child’s education. And yet Democrats continue to oppose it.
Despite the overwhelming evidence that vouchers have helped raise the quality of stagnant school systems for some the poorest American children trapped in shoddy schools, there’s no shortage of Democrats fighting against their funding. Democrats consistently place the demands of their union supporters far above the desires of their constituents. And in the end it’s black voters themselves who allow this trend to continue. If black parents were truly all that interested in doing all they can to ensure their children get the best education as possible, they would be abandoning the Democrat Party in what would be record number. But they aren’t.
Then we move onto the quest for stricter gun control laws. It’s a fact that America’s most crime-ridden cities are run almost exclusively by Democrat mayors. In 2015, the inner cities of Oakland, Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia — also known as “Killadelphia,” — Atlanta and other Democratic Party monopolies are routinely plagued with violent criminality. For decades Democrats have stopped at nothing to take away and restrict the Constitutional right of every law abiding citizen living in these unsafe communities to carry a firearm as a means to protect themselves and their families.
Nearly 300 years before racist Democrats enacted Jim Crow Laws that helped disarm blacks in the south, Chief Justice Roger Taney argued in his opinion in Dred Scott v. Sanford that blacks could not be granted citizenship because “[I]t would give them the full liberty … to keep and carry arms wherever they went.” And while Democrats demonize it today, it was the NRA who stood up to defend blacks when Democrats robbed, murdered, and lynched them in the 1950s and 60s. Today, it’s Democrats — from Hitlery to Barry — still working to disarm blacks who are being buried by gang violence in Democrat Party monopolies all across America.
Then comes the minimum wage myth. A myriad of studies have shown that higher labor costs reduce employment, especially for younger or less educated workers employed at local fast food restaurants and grocery stores. A study from labor economists William Even of Miami University in Ohio and David Macpherson of Trinity University in Texas proves how young black men are being hurt the most by the very minimum wage hikes being pushed by Democrat Party leaders in states across the U.S. About 18,500 black young adults in the 21 states affected by the federal minimum wage increases passed in 2007 lost their jobs.
And it was also that aforementioned study which said, “Among black males in this group, each 10% increase in the minimum wage has decreased employment by 6.5%,” the study said. The study examined the level of damage based on a $10.10 minimum wage increase. And yet Democrat presidential candidate Hitlery Clinton stands by her promise to raise the minimum wage to $15.00 per hour, should she actually win in November. God forbid! Meanwhile, it’s Mr. Trump who wants to raise wages across the board another way, and dare I say a better way. That being, of course, by creating an environment that will dramatically increase job creation.
And then we have the Democrat commitment to abortion. While pregnant-aged black women represent roughly five percent of the total U.S. population, they accounted for 35 percent of the abortions in 2010. That’s because Planned Parenthood abortion facilities intentionally inhabit America’s inner cities and are “located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.” And yet, we have those blacks in Congress as well as those in the entertainment industry and the state-controlled media, who continue to advocate for an organization that is responsible for the killing of more blacks than is the KKK.
And then we have Barry’s out of control Environmental Protection Agency enacting all manner of new regulations. Barry’s Clean Power Plan will hurt millions of low and middle class Americans in inner cities already struggling to pay their bills in this sagging economy. It was Mr. Harry Alford, the president and CEO National Black Chamber of Commerce, who said in testimony before Congress last year, “These communities already suffer from higher unemployment and poverty rates compared to the rest of the country, yet the EPA’s regressive energy tax threatens to push minorities and low-income Americans even further into poverty.”
Barry’s Clean Power Plan, Mr. Alford argued, may cut greenhouse emissions it will also raise poverty by 23 percent among blacks and 26 percent among Hispanics and will raise the average American’s energy costs by more than 15 percent by 2035. Mr. Alford went on to argue, “Most importantly, the loss of development and economic expansion would affect many of the blue-collar jobs that power our low-income and minority communities.” But all seems to matter little to Barry as his lawyers continue fighting in court to make sure that his economy killing Clean Power Plan is eventually enacted. And for what?
And what we have taking place in cities like Detroit, Baltimore, Ferguson, Watts, Memphis, Flint, and South Chicago, to name just a few, is little more than Democrat Party sanctioned killing. And all with unilaterally unopposed rule by Progressive Democrats for over 50 years. Our cities aren’t simply dying, most are already dead but their citizens are too addled, deluded, addicted or ignorant to recognize that fact. And it all started with the Great Society’s “War on Poverty” that made black women dependent on the state. Ever since, single-mother families have skyrocketed. It should have been called, the War on the Poor.
And I have also listed here a short history of the Democrat Party in respect to civil rights and minorities and the wreckage of Progressivism. You’ll notice, and rather quickly I assume, that reality differs quite significantly from the revisionist account of historical events perpetrated by Democrats.
Democrats versus Republicans:
13th Amendment [Abolish Slavery]
GOP: 100% Support
DEM: 77% Against
14th Amendment [Citizenship and Equal Rights under the law]
GOP: 94% Support
DEM: 100% Against
15th Amendment [Right to Vote]
GOP: 100% Support
DEM: 100% Against
Democrat controlled cities where murder rates are on the rise (2011-2015):
Baltimore +37% [Democrat Mayor for the last 49 years]
Chicago + 64% [Democrat Mayor for the last 85 years] (50% increase in murders this year alone)
DC + 30% [Democrat Mayor for the last 41 years]
Milwaukee + 66% [Democrat Mayor for the last 108 years]
Newark + 10.6% [Democrat Mayor for the last 109 years]
St. Louis + 34% [Democrat Mayor for the last 67 years]
The Democrats are the party that took the lands from the Indians and put them on reservations. The Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan. The Democrats are the party that blocked women’s suffrage. The Democrats are the party of no immigration restrictions. And the Democrats are the party “for” sterilization. Yet their claim to fame is that they’re the party of the good guys, the little guys, the minorities, and, of course, women. If something just doesn’t work time after time, over and over, what does it tell you? Should you keep going with it? Should you do it again? If this doesn’t show the Democrat narrative, then I don’t know what does.
And yet none of what I have tried to point out here will likely make one iota of difference to the 95 percent of blacks who insist upon voting for Democrats time after time after time, and who will, undoubtedly, vote for the one person who means to do them the most harm, Hitlery Clinton. Never have I seen a group of people more determined in their efforts to ensure that their station in life never improves. It’s all so bizarre. Much talk is always made about how the Republicans don’t work hard enough at reaching out to blacks, and yet if I was a black man in America I think I’d be able to figure out for myself that the Democrat Party is not where I belong.
