So what is it about those who live in any of the many Democrat hellholes that can be found in every state in our country, that makes the residents of these particular locales totally unwilling to take any action that would substantially improve their living conditions? And why is it that those who live in these places continue to elect and then re-elect politicians who have absolutely no interest, whatsoever, in actually working to improve the conditions in their not so fair cities. Which leads me to ask, who among us is it than is able to look at any large city anywhere in this country and see it as being the ideal place in which one could raise their family?
And we now have yet another sterling example of how city dwellers seem to have some sort of a death wish. Because, it was the city of St. Louis, Missouri, that, just this past Tuesday, elected its first black female mayor, Democrat Tishaura Jones. She will be sworn in on April 20 and faces the dual challenges presented by a declining population and one of the worst murder rates in the nation. And it was in her victory speech that she said, “St. Louis: This is an opportunity for us to rise.” And she said, “I told you when I was running that we aren’t done avoiding tough conversations. We are done ignoring the racism that has held our city and our region back.”
Jones, 49, is a former state representative who has been treasurer since 2013. She will replace incumbent Mayor Lyda Krewson, who announced back in November that she would be stepping down. Krewson, 67, is the city’s first woman mayor. Police statistics show 262 people were killed in St. Louis last year, which was five fewer than the record of 267 set in 1993. But because the city’s population has declined considerably since 1993, the per capita homicide rate was actually much higher in 2020. The city shot to national prominence last year when two local homeowners took up arms to defend their property against those taking part in riots.
And it’s already that 2021 is shaping up to be even worse. The city has recorded 46 killings through Tuesday, about 10 ahead of last year’s dangerously high pace. Jones has pledged to bring in more social workers, mental health counselors and substance abuse counselors. She sees social aid as an alternative to adding more uniformed officers while her victory speech focused largely on overcoming racism and bigotry. She said, “I will not stay silent when I spot racism.” And she said, “I will not stay silent when I spot homophobia or transphobia. I will not stay silent when I spot religious intolerance. I will not stay silent when I spot any injustice.”
Translation, if you happen to be a white family that currently lives in St. Louis you might want to consider getting out just as quickly as can. And why might that be? Well, because you are now about to have a mayor who does not have many police to protect you and intends to have even fewer, replacing them with more social workers, more mental health counselors and more substance abuse counselors. Now I ask you, does that, in any way, sound like a good idea in a city that has what can easily be described as a skyrocketing crime rate? She has made it clear that she is going to allow criminals to run rampant, because racism is the much bigger problem.
Now no offense to Ms. Jones, but can anyone name me a city that has elected itself a black female mayor that is not horrible? And knowing the recent history of her city I’m tempted to say that this is most likely the very last thing that the city of St. Louis needs. Obviously, what we have here is yet another incompetent, female racist mayor, giving the same old speech. She’s going to save the world, just like the bumbling backsides in Baltimore and Chicago. And those who live in St Louis have seen all of the horrors taking place in cities like Chicago and Baltimore, with black women mayors and they still elect another one. Is that not the definition of insanity?
And so it’s in Ms. Jones that we have yet another happy “I am a victim” black political hack. And I could be wrong, but something tells me she’ll likely stay silent when it comes to racism against whites. And if she’s like the other black female Democrat mayors that we have then I suspect that it will be in no time at all that she will take St. Louis to all manner of new higher highs and lower lows. Such as higher crime rates, high dropout rates and higher flames and even lower employment, lower police morale, lower street drug prices due to police apathy, and lower standardized test scores. So go ahead and prove me wrong, Ms. Jones! Like that’s going to happen.
She very boldly states, “We are done ignoring the racism that has held our city and our region back.” ‘Racism’ is the collision of the rules, standards, and customs that allow First World Western, i.e. White, Civilization to function and the faults, limitations, pathological behaviors of blacks that can only create Third World African conditions. See South Africa both before and after the end of White rule for this principle in action. What does it matter that her city is nothing but a third world country because of Democrats? Now she can just go ahead and finally finish it off. It would be the perfect location for Major League Baseball to have their All-Star game.
And really, the issue here is not whether she is black or a woman. The problem is that she is a moronic leftist who wants to dismantle law and order and promote lunacy. You can name all sorts of screwed up white male leftist mayors that are equally as bad. Can anyone say de Blasio? But that said, when did stating the obvious become racist? Blacks think too much about skin color. This person was elected for no other reason than because she’s Black. Blacks don’t care if she is qualified, just that she’s black. Now that’s racist. Can someone name for me a black female Democrat mayor who has been successful? One that hasn’t been caught up in corruption?
Sadly, we all know she will do an injustice to the whole city by ignoring the real problem, which sure as hell isn’t “racism.” No, like with most Democrats, she will ignore all truths and facts about who does the killings and just keep her race/victim card handy. So while she likes to blame racism it’s the most devastating problems faced by blacks in America that are entirely self-inflicted. Those things such as a high out-of-wedlock birth rate, family breakdown and unsafe communities. These problems have little to do with civil rights. But as long as blacks buy into the notion that white racism is the source of their problems, the solutions will be forever elusive.
Democrats have this strange relationship with reality in that how awful a place is to live in, is often in direct relation to how long it has been that Democrats have been in power there. Take all the places where Democrats have been in power for 50 or 60 years and it’s still during every election that Republican’s get blamed for the mess. Never in the history of the world has one political party been able to do so little for its supporters, continued to blame others for its inability to do anything but enrich themselves, and then ride to election victory after election victory on the backs of the people they literally do nothing for. It’s truly an amazing thing to watch.
Black Americans and liberal whites in the cities like St Louis and Chicago and Baltimore continue to put people like this woman in positions of power. There is an old saying that when you find yourself in a hole, the best thing you can do is to stop digging. But every time one of these race baiting opportunists get elected, the hole they live in just gets deeper. Racism, as a slogan, is not the answer to the problem. Our moral advocates like religious leaders, teachers, politicians, and above all, parents, all have a part to play in the healing of a broken society. Respect for others, and implementing the ‘Golden Rule’ would go far in restoring St Louis.
