I have been knocked out by a sinus infection for the past two days, hence the light blogging.
Watching the images of the Baltimore riots makes me realize that another infection is raging across Democrat cities in America. It is the infection caused by iron-fisted, top-down government that dooms multiple generations of poor people to dependency upon ineffective government programs that promise utopia but deliver hell.
And what will the failed Democrat leaders of Baltimore demand in the aftermath of these riots?
More of the same.
More programs that fracture the black family. More programs that encourage black women to have babies out of wedlock. More programs that limit economic freedom. More programs that discourage free enterprise. More government programs that serve as nothing more than tools for the Democrat party to consolidate power.
This is slavery, Democrat style.
In Baltimore, as the National Guard steps in, curfews are imposed, and business owners pick up the pieces from their burned-out, looted stores, let’s not forget why one more American city has been torn apart by racial violence.
Blue America has failed at social justice. It has failed at equality. It has failed at accountability. Its competing constituencies are engaged in street battles, and any exploration of “root causes” must necessarily include decades of failed policies — all imposed by steadfastly Democratic mayors and city leaders.
Are the riots caused by the Baltimore Police Department’s “documented history” of abuse? Which party has run Baltimore and allowed its police officers to allegedly run amok?
