Over the weekend, President Trump made a series of tweets regarding Baltimore and Rep. Elijah Cummings' (D-MD) work there that many on the Left have called out as "racist". However from what we will see in just a moment, they're far from racist - they're actually ACCURATE.
Let's look at a couple of his tweets and then I'll share some reactions - and LIES - coming from so-called "journalists" such as Fox News' Chris Wallace. Here are the tweets:
Now let's take a look at what our "friend" on Fox News said - according to Breitbart: "This goes back to what happens with the four members of 'The Squad'. Nobody objects to the president defending his border policy, but this seems to be the worst kind of racial stereotyping. [...] Black congressman, majority-black district, I mean, no human being would want to live there? Is he saying people who live in Baltimore are not human beings?"
No, Chris...that's not what President Trump said. Trump never mentioned race in his tweets, so where is he saying that no human being would want to live in a majority-black district? That's what YOU say, Chris - that no human being would live in a majority-black district, thus indicating that it's YOU who doesn't think black people are human beings. Again, Trump never said ANYTHING about race. He said no human being would want to live in the "worst run and most dangerous" district in America. It's YOU, Chris, who deducts that because it's the most dangerous district it can only be the home of a majority-black population. You, Chris, are the only one ASSUMING that because the district is dangerous, black people must live there and must be the criminals.
And check out what Wallace said next: "[T]here is a clear pattern here. The fact is before his inauguration the president tweeted about John Lewis, a black congressman. This is before his inauguration. 'He should spend time in his crime-infested district'. Then, two weeks ago he goes after these four members of 'The Squad', all women of color, and says they should go back to the crime-infested countries from which they come. Then he talks about Elijah Cummings, and he says his district is rat and rodent-infested. Infested, it sounds like vermin. It sounds subhuman, and these are all six members of Congress for people of color".
Yes, there is a pattern here - a pattern in which Trump criticizes the Left (Cummings, Pelosi, De Blasio, AOC) and what they're doing to this country and the districts they represent and the Left uses the race card as a defense mechanism. But in doing so, they're the ones showing their racism. "Rodent-infested" means what it says - there are a lot of rodents, rats and the like, in that town. And it's true. The same is true for San Francisco where they even have feces maps so people can avoid those areas. What do you think human feces bring? RATS...rodents of all types. Do you think Chris Wallace doesn't know that? He's being entirely disingenuous here. Trump was referring to LITERAL RODENTS littering the streets of Baltimore, not the citizens of Baltimore. Chris was reaching for something that wasn't even there.
I think Chris Wallace is, quite honestly, simply auditioning for a job at NBC or CNN...we all know how that went for Megyn Kelly.
At any rate, there are two aspects to this discussion: first, the fact that Democrat-run districts/cities are a mess (much like Leftist-run countries), and Baltimore is just one example. Take a look at Los Angeles. Take a look at San Francisco. The second aspect is how the extreme Left (which now comprises all of the Democrat Party and the Never Trumpers like Chris Wallace who have joined forces with them) is trying to portray Trump, and by extension Trump supporters, as white supremacists. As if Trump and his supporters were just a bunch of racists when it's the LEFT that has historically supported Segregation, the mass-killing of black children through Planned Parenthood and so on. They are the white supremacists who need a permanent underclass to survive.
You can tell they're the racists by the fact that they make everything about race. Heck, didn't Congresswoman Ayana Pressley a few days ago say "we don't need any more brown faces that don't want to be a brown voice"? What does that even mean?? It means that Ayana herself is a slave driver driving slaves to the Democrat plantation. She doesn't want black or brown people to have a mind of their own - she wants obedient slaves...
The good news is that we, Trump supporters, know who we are and we know we're not racists or bigots. The Left, now led by "The Squad", is indeed a group run by a bunch of racist communists who want to destroy the freedoms that we enjoy in America. So calling them racists, murderers for their support of the genocide that is abortion and communists are all accurate expressions of who they are, based on what they say, on what they do and who leads them. The Left trying to call us white supremacists doesn't stick because we know who we are and we know we are not who the Left says we are.
Now some facts about Baltimore: Look at the murder rate as compared to the rest of the country, according to statistics from The Baltimore Sun:
As you can see, not only are crime stats worsening but they're also 10 times higher than the national average.
And how about the poverty rate? Well, it stands at 22.1%, according to The Baltimore Sun in an article from earlier this year, whereas the State Average is 9.4%. So next time you hear anyone talk about Maryland's fabulous living standards, make sure to ask about "how about Baltimore?", because that particular district is far worse than the State Average. The devil's in the details, as they say. So always double check whether they're talking about the State or the District that Elijah Cummings represents...which is in a terrible state, just like anything Democrats touch.
