Baltimore a Lesson in Liberalism

Whenever you get a situation like the one that has played out in Baltimore over the last few days, pundits, politicians, and writers fall all over themselves trying to answer the one basic question: why? Very few of them have come within throwing distance of the right explanation. There are many factors at play, but they all come down to the same source. City Councilman Nick Mosby, speaking with Fox News Tuesday night, came closer than most.

“What it is,” he said, “is young boys, the young folks in the community showing decades old anger, frustration, for a system that has failed them. This is bigger than Freddie Gray, this is about the social economics of poor, urban America and these young guys are frustrated and upset…There’s a symptom of something going on here and what I’m trying to articulate to you is when we look at communities like this in urban America, lack of education, lack of commercial development, lack of opportunities, it’s the socioeconomics.”

It’s worth noting that Baltimore has been under the exclusive rule of liberal Democrats since the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Whatever policies have failed the young men of Baltimore, they did not come from the conservative end of the spectrum. And Mosby is right: economics is at the heart of the problem. Rich people don’t riot. They don’t loot. They don’t burn down buildings. People in the middle class don’t do it, either. The only people who resort to this kind of violence are the ones out of options. Liberalism has stolen those options from the people of Baltimore.

Decades of welfare, dependency, and hopelessness have conspired to create the mess we see on the news. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought hard to make sure black Americans had the right to vote, but that right is worth little if you’re being tricked about who to vote for. Democrats are skilled magicians, mesmerizing their target audience with grand illusions that mystify and excite. They know all the right things to say. They offer a tempting story that is hard to resist.

It’s not your fault, that story says. It’s our fault. We’re the ones who put you in this mess, and we’re the ones who must get you out of it. Trust us. Put your faith in us, and we’ll help you every step of the way.

This is the mentality of communism. You’re too stupid to know what to do with your life and your money. Let the state take care of it. Let the state take care of you. We’ll make sure that everyone gets equal opportunity, equal treatment, and equal outcomes.

But that’s not what made America great. That’s not what creates wealth. And it’s not what fulfills the human spirit. It is the mentality that ruins communities, pits the races against each other, and makes people believe there is no way out but through the salvation of the almighty government. And since these policies do nothing to actually make things better, you get fires. You get riots. You get Baltimore.

  1. In 0bama’s 14 min diatribe to the Japanese press, 0bama said basically the same thing. He blamed it on the school system. 0bama went on to lobby for more money to fix the system.
    Proving that 0bama and liberals are insane. Thinking that more of the same will change the outcome.

    • The “War on Poverty” has been a disaster and destroyed millions of lives.

      • Thanks to President Lyndon “Brains” Johnson!

        • He also gave us Vietnam.

        • “I’ll have those n*****s voting Democrat for two-hundred years”-LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON

          • exactly! they want robots and dumb people under them so they can continue to perpetuate their imperialism. if you want to truly help the poor and indigent, then get off your ass and help feed them, cloth them, house them. or are you too good for that? apparently US tax dollars are not. its up to us as a people. not the government!

          • I believe the people would do it if the Democrats in Government wouldn’t keep standing in the way. The Churches do so much for the people,but now the Socialist/Democrat government is interfering with religion and actually penalizing Christians for not accepting every immoral or Socialist causes they come up with,

            There are so very many needs I want to contribute to but when the government takes over half my income in taxes it is impossible. Our tax system penalizes the poor and middle class, rewards the ultra wealthy and wastes multi-millions on failing projects, bailing out banks and corporations, wasting it on welfare for people capable of working, Obamacare which was built on lies, and has forced millions to pay for things they have absolutely no need for.

    • Throwing more money at any massively corrupt Federal Agency is insanity……..just look at the IRS, the VA to name but two examples. Short Term Limits and Drug Testing are also needed in Congress……..ASAP.

    • Right! Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

  2. Baltimore has become another Detroit, a total failure of liberal politics.

  3. Liberal democrats are the biggest morons in the nation.

    • Thank you Douglas for being correct.

    • You are the Man, Douglas!

    • ty sir and just so everyone knows how slimy they are. they were the confederates of the slave holding south and they are STILL up to no good for any of the poor. they are giving hand outs that are going to run out instead of offering opportunities!

    • you are one of the black Americans that help make this nation great, thank you. a credit to other fine black Americans that I served with in the military for over 20 yrs

  4. Welfare set this country back with liberals giving more and more entitlements to people who are just as able and capable as the next person to find some type of employment. Also nobody holds anyone back but themselves. Education is there for any one person who wants to better themselves. How hard is that to comprehend.

    • I must disagree on one point: The public schools have not educated in years, they simply indoctrinate. The teachers only care about their seniority, their paycheck, their retirement, their Union. We now are saturated with teachers who cannot teach and now they are going to trial for changing grades. Isn’t it pathetic that before a high school graduate can enter Junior College they must take remedial courses in reading, comprehension, math. I’m sure they cannot spell either if they cannot read. Why don’t the liberals worry more about giving children a competent education before they want to throw money at teaching sex education and sensitivity training. Too many teachers are having sex with kids and they are rude and crude to others. Kids have been figuring out sex since the beginning of time and if children were taught respect for others and had stable families with a mother and father they would not need sensitivity training. I just can’t figure out how we have raised stable, successful children for generations without all that foolishness. I, along with most of my classmates never set foot in a college and we have all had successful, prosperous lives and produced stable families and held responsible jobs.

      • The teachers are made to teach to standards dreamed up by politicians and unions, while their education was dumbed down by the same people. Meanwhile there are requirements that prevent highly competent people from entering the field because the didn’t take a course on how to do a lesson plan. Two thirds of my children’s teachers I would never hire in a business setting since they do not have the skill to get along with others or problem solving skills.

        • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

          Neither the politicians nor the unions have anything to do with the standards. I took several courses on lesson plans. The first thing I teach in science is get the facts.

          • First, then how come there are so many ignorant scientists that are running round that think global warming is a theory and not a hypothesis when there are very few experiments/data supporting reproducable results and the ones that do have generally been debunked because of flawed, fudged, or data from models not reality.
            Second, standards come from the state boad of regents which are political appointees, some good some not so good, all subject to influence from legislative and loddying forces[read unions]. And at the vast majority of colleges and universities the Ed degree in a subject requires less courses than the regular degree in the same subject. Other schools make you take the full compement which virtually gives you a double major in your subject and Ed.
            You might be an excellent teacher, but you do not get to pick the books or what goes in them.

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            Actually, I served on the textbook selection panel for the great state of Texas. I then chaired the textbook selection panel for Spring Branch School District. We managed to formulate a consensus for our selection. The text was quite good.
            We don’t teach global warning in high school. Theories have a habit of changing on a fairly irregular basis. In my humble opinion, the standards on science were quite good. My education degree required the same number of hours as did my masters in mechanical engineering. Both were from top 10 universities.

          • That is a rare, the good universities, make sure that happens, the lesser ones do not, top 10 is a matterof opinion and area, theory vs practicality and all that.

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            I recognize that the rating doesn’t mean a whole lot. My school for education was Univ of Washington. They have been rated in the top ten for the past twenty years. The rating was established by “U.S. News & World Report.”

          • I find it a little scary that a set of text books is universal for an entire state…no choices?

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            They were not universal. We certified six texts for physics. From those six, the school system could make their choice. We certified simply that they met the state standards. The second thing I teach in my class is inductive logic.

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            Perhaps they aren’t scientists. The scientists with whom I have worked were well educated and quite rational. For example, my mentor at the Advanced Space Propulsion Lab at Johnson Space Center was one of the brightest men I have ever known. He was one of the world’s authorities on high altitude electrodynamics.

        • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

          Before I retired and, in due course, became a school teacher, I operated three different businesses that proved to be very successful.

        • Greyguy,
          I should have read our post first. You said what I said.

          • We all arrived at the same conclusion, logic may have prevailed.

          • Greyguy,
            I wish that were true. I don’t see it soaking in. I just posted on another article about tis same issue. But I have hope that education is changing. I have been in the think of making changes in Idaho working with the legislature. The old time diehards are getting the message, which these large cities could work at if they will.

      • you are not in a classroom and in no position to judge something you have not experienced. Teachers do the best with what they are given to work with. Think about this and see if any of it sinks in: As a group…Asians score 95% on nationally normed tests, Whites score 92%, Hispanics score 52% and blacks score 32% out of 100%. Asians and whites do not live or go to school in the inner city. They moved to the suburb long ago to avoid violence. Blacks and Hispanics live in the inner city and go to school there. The people who can’t read or write come from the inner cities not from the suburbs. Teachers who teach in the inner cities should get hazard pay because they take their lives in their hands every day. You can not teach in an environment of fear, harassment, and violence against teachers. When kids throw their books on the floor and refuse to read, what class in college teacher preparation taught teachers how to react to this so kids can learn? Answer, NONE!

        • Then why does anyone stay in that environment?

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            Perhaps they are motivated by something other than money.

          • Teachers start out in the classroom because they love to instill knowledge. They studied hard for their teaching degree, passed a test to get their license, then interviewed for the job. I was very proud to get my degree and felt very lucky to get my first job. In 1972 a teacher in Kentucky made $6,000 dollars a year. when I started teaching in 1974 I made $12,000 a year. That was with coaching track for 3 months and 9th grade foot ball for another 3 months. My nights were all full until 7:30 pm. My day started at 7 am. I was required to finish my masters which took me 10 years of night classes. It was expensive and very tiring. I was always tired. As time passed, my students changed from wanting to learn to not caring to learn. Truancy was so high, the government had to make school mandatory. Parents were hauled were charged for neglect and brought to court to explain why their child missed more than 10 days with no excuse. Students found out all they had to do was get expelled and they could get away from court cases. That caused the government to make rules on how many days a student could be expelled. A student could not be expelled for more than 3 days at a time and for no more than 9 days in a year. A student opened an English teacher’s desk drawer and peed on her files in the drawer. He got three days suspension. She, the teacher had to smell his urine all year. Another teacher was hit in the face with a book. Three days suspension. No matter what the student did 3 days was maximum punishment. Students who wanted to learn were not taught because the teacher had to take so much time handling discipline. Teachers turned their back to the class to write on the chalk board and got hit with screws and bolts. Result, very little teaching got done. One class had the posters burned off the brick walls 5 times along with all of the 25 windows busted in one semester. Result, teacher had a heart attack. A person was hired off the street that could handle the kids, but could not do fractions. The class was a math class. Not one teacher contacted for that job wanted it. After a teacher has taught several years, they kind of lose heart. But when you are 20 years in and have 10 to go before retirement you can not just up and walk off the job. Some do, most don’t. They keep trying. Money is not the answer. We continued to throw out good books and equipment every year so we could use up the money allotted to us to buy more of the same. In the old days, a student desk lasted 30 years. In modern times a student desk is changed every couple of years. Computers and printers are the same way. the money just keeps coming and we keep wasting it to keep it coming. If the money is not spent, we lose it. So we spend it. Many school systems today have a discipline alternative school for the students who have been expelled for 9 days and can not be expelled more. I worked at a school like that. My last year I saw a teacher beat up for his car keys. the student ran out of the school and stole his car. It had his bill fold and house keys in it. He was not caught by the police for two weeks. A 75 year old substitute lady had her glasses knocked off her face by bolts students had thrown at her. Another lady substitute was hit by so many books she ran out of the school screaming. Two teachers had heart attacks and quit teaching the same year. Food fights in the cafeteria were common. Student fights were a common occurrence. Girls carried one edged razor blades in their mouth used to slice other girls faces. Knifes and guns were commonly brought to school. This is what has become of our inner city schools. I bet you will find the same thing happening in Baltimore, Detroit, Houston, Las Angeles, New York City. I went to the area prison complex each year to bring students for a field trip. I always saw students from my school detained there. Money can not fix this problem. It is a social attitude type problem that no amount of money can fix. The schools are fine financially.

          • I am in a classroom as an Adjunct professor at several colleges and universities, some are community colleges some are rather well known. The students I receive from the school systems are totally unprepared to speak English properly, write coherently, and think in a conceptual manner, yet they have a HS diploma. That tells me one thing, there is a conspiracy among who ever is at these schools to turn out students who are unqualified, and defraud the taxpayers of a lot of money along the way.
            A few of the Adjuncts have come from the Public schools and have told stories of being told to alter grades of students or to dumb down certain Advanced Placement ciriculums to accomodate more students[read they get more money from the state]. This called fraud to get more money into the system and short changes the students.
            I also teach some Collecge courses as part of a program for the state prison. These guys also have diplomas but have no skills as outlined above which is part of the reason they are in prison, they went to schools that are actually far worst then what you described, no blood on the floor or no one to the hospital it was a good day..one guy said he made more money dealing drugs in school than his congressman, which is why he showed up!
            The schools teach to tests which are not concepts. When I teach its about thinking, the students hate it at first, once they catch on they understand what they have been missing. At one place I worked they replaced the University that provided the sevices and they upgraded the Adjuncts and reluctantly kept me[the only hold over] due to excellent qualifications. They found out why when my classes filled uptwice as fast as all others and not because I grade easily; I do case studies, its about the concepts and the logic.

      • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

        Is that your experience? It isn’t mine. I cared nothing about my seniority or my pay check (which was about 20 percent of what I earned in industry). I wasn’t interested in retirement and I paid no attention to the union. My interest was in teaching my students. I expected them to advance to their full potential. Most of them did.

        • My experience as a college instructor was similar to yours until two things happened, one University misrepresented me as a full time faculty member because my qualifictions were better then some of the Unionized full time staff, I just love it when the academics tell me how dishonest business folks are! The second was when another school revised the pay of the Adjuncts so they could give the unionizied full timers a raise, they cut our pay anywhere from 10 to 37%. At that point I did not short my students, but I found other ways to entertain myself since it was obvious the institutions did not care for the students, especially in the second case. After all in the US 70% of all classes are taught by adjuncts who make 25 to 35% of what full timers make, great quality control. Unfortunately many need the money and cut corners to teach a lot of classes or as I have found out, do not speak English very well and students transfer to my class.
          Its great to be in your situation, but in these days of higher costs and changing enrollments there seem to be change pressures everywhre.

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            I taught at three different universities by invitation. To the best of my knowledge, none of them had unions. I wasn’t there for the pay. I was there simply to have the opportunity to teach.

          • Thaddeus,
            Teachers today are changing for the better but old ideas are hard to overcome. I fought teaching to the test for most of my adult life. That is teaching,. It is not learning. Apparently you learned the difference. Way too many teachers did not or at least they had to follow the poor policies of the school districts.

          • Thaddeus Eugene Hughes

            Actually, I thought that I would stand and deliver with the best of them. That was my experience when I taught thermodynamics and fluid mechanics at university. My students were mostly Boeing engineers and they just soaked it up. I was taught a better approach at the Dept of Physics at University of Washington. We had the world’s authority on “inquiry and discovery.” It is an enhanced Socratic discourse. At first, I fought it, but then I saw the impact on students and the quality of learning. That methodology was called for by the national science standards. So, I switched. It worked beautifully at the high school level. My last year teaching, I had 20 students score about 750 on the SAT II in physics. I had two 800s. I was given the MIT educational leadership award. I loved teaching and my kids. They taught me that we have a plethora of bright young men and women who are perfectly capable of excelling in both science and mathematics.

          • Thaddeus,
            I suspect your real success leis in your passion for what you are teaching and that rubbed off on your students. I wish all teachers did that.

      • Yes and why are we not removing our children from the dens of brainwashing and educating them with truth and GOD? Many talk a good fight but few, very few are willing to take it to the mat. No matter what the cost. Out children and grandchildren are worth the fight. One problem is WE THE PEOPLE HAVE ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN! Now there are generations of brainwashed and undereducated parents that do not have the skills to help educate their children, and too often many that simply should never have children!

      • Conservative,
        You are on to the real issue facing urban communities. Teachers for way too long have taught to the test, spoon feeding kids to their liberal thinking. As a result, kids came out of school unable to solve problems and with poor communication skills. and then these poor kids wonder why they cannot get or keep a job.

      • You are right. I sit in classroom and no they don’t teach what we learned growing up. Its sad, that there really are some great teachers and you have the pervs screwing kids. Yeah, the education is very screwed up. And I’ll also agree that some teachers are there for a paycheck, etc..

    • The Pagan Liberals have a real charitable heart for the poor, as long as it comes out of your pocket and not theirs. Shalom!

      • Pagans are a separate religion and are not by nature liberal. Pagan as you have implied does not mean without religion. As a matter of fact a good many of the Christian churches in Western Europe were bult on the foundations of the original Pagan churches so they could not compete with the newer Christian religion and many on the rituals of the Christian churches are from the Pagan rituals! As a matter of history Pagans were more regional. I could go on but the notion that Pagan is anti religious is absolutely false, as much as some establishment religious leaders would like it to be so, they just hate competion or is it the sorted history of repression.

  5. Baltimore has been a drug-infested slum since I was knee-high. I am almost forty now, and the”liberal progression” has been slim to none in most areas. Thank God I am a constitutional conservative!

    • On our last visit there we were unable to get near, or even park near, one of the MUST SEE BY TOURIST LOCATIONS (City publication) due to M A J O R WIDE-SCALE TRAFFIC STOPPING DRUG SALES by dozens and dozens of dealers (There may have been over a hundred when you count the two bodyguards each drug dealer had?) I will never get within 100 miles of Baltimore ever again…..to me it is dead……….destroyed by the liberal-TARDS.

      • Yes it is. I am ashamed to say that I was born and raised here. My wife and I are moving on to greener pastures. My line of work has been destroyed by the EPA and democrat policies. Almost all of the high paying industrial jobs are gone and will not be back. Those and government jobs were what held this city together for the past sixty years. Welcome to the decline of western civilization.

        • I cant speak first hand on Baltimore but I can speak on several other major cities around the U.S which are exactly in the condition as you described Baltimore. And the cause is Liberalism.

          • It is a damn shame. The worst part is they keep placing their trust in these democrat’s lies and voting for the same thing that keeps them impoverished and dependant on the government.

      • The illegal drug culture is at the bottom of most of this unrest, but not one in 100 Americans on either side truly realizes this. Pathetic.

  6. disqus_C6fGXmCFNc

    The whole system in this country is blind and the demoncraps are so stupid and you know you can not fix stupid. Lets elect someone who is a grown up and does not play silly games like the ahole in our whouse now. Get rid of all the people in office over 8 years and lets start new with an intelligent person some military and most business sense. Get rid of the diease of liberalism.

  7. Liberalism and the liberals ‘War on Poverty’ destroyed the lives of millions of blacks. It has confined them to the government ‘plantations’ and the liberal politicians are their ‘Masters’. So many lives and so much talent wasted. Liberals sin against GOD and the blacks. Why do they do it? Because if blacks were not treated like incompetent victims there would no longer be racism in the Country. The Bible tells us that ‘there will always be poor among us’ and there are people that are poor through no fault of their own, but it’s not due to their race. Blacks can and have excelled and overcome many obstacles, but they are labeled “Uncle Toms” by their own and also by liberals who must always have victims that they can wield power over. They will destroy anyone they can so they can feel superior to and hold onto that voting block. In six years, Obama has done absolutely nothing for the blacks and now he is usurping them with illegal aliens.

    • not that i agree with all of what you said..,.but i understand some of it.. though i’d like to know how Obama has done nothing for the black community 😕 maybe i’m wrong but i think arguing for a higher minimum wage so that people who have those jobs can actually live above the poverty line is a good thing among others? i might also be wrong about things like the income inequality issues.. .. and i thought charity is a good thing 😕 and yes if i remember right you’re right about the Bible saying. about the poor being always among us…. and there’s also i’m not sure why you say black people are “..treated like incompetent victims….” who’s this “Uncle Tom” you’re talking about 😕

      • Go finish your Kool-Aid, Lib Licker !!!

      • So Obama gives his little speeches about the minimum wage but what has he done about it? Sure, a few groups benefited but for every 10 that benefited seven others lost their jobs. How does it help when Obama will pay a company $3,000. to hire an illegal immigrant? If an illegal alien and another black, white or whatever apply for the same job, but the company has to pay for health insurance for the legal as opposed to the illegal, who do, you think will get that job?

        If the liberals keep handing out welfare for mothers to produce more babies with fathers ‘unknown’, that puts both mothers that do not work and are incapable of properly nourishing and caring for so many children. What does it do for the children when new men are constantly introduced into their lives?

        By saying a woman will lose welfare if a man is in the house the man with a job must leave the home. No father for children. Where do they live: They live in government subsidized projects or the so-called ‘hood’ where murder and violence are committed by blacks on blacks daily, but Obama nor the Democrats ever address this in a constructive way. It’s just ignored and they concentrate on the police, the same police they call when they have a need.

        Being old, I have my senior moments but for one I’ll name Ben Carson, one of the most intelligent men on the planet, numerous black military men and women, black judges and lawyers and prosecutors. My mechanic has his own very prosperous garage and is always honest, polite and helpful. The best and most popular Bar-b-Que in town is owned and operated by a wonderful black family. They live in a better neighborhood than I do. They have five children in a parochial school and they are some of the politest, intelligent children I have ever met. Two are in college.

        This couple had nothing when they met but they had values, they worked hard and never hurt anyone.

        When you assume people can’t survive without you, they will come to believe that and start acting inferior and like victims that loathe the successful. They don’t think about how hard it was and the work and hours spent building a business or life. This is evidenced by how cruelly they can burn down, riot and loot the property of others. What in the world has that behavior added to their lives.

    • The “War On Poverty” should be renamed “The War Causing Poverty.”

  8. They have no excuses. They use being black as a crutch. I’m a Native American (Indian) and there are many of us that being an Indian is as a crutch. If we fail, it’s the white man’s fault. Many of us have the smarts don’t
    t apply ourselves. To many, the least path of resistance is an option.

  9. The really sad part of all this BS is, there are some genuinely decent black youth out there and they are reaping all the fallout from what all the damn miscreants are doing. God forbid any black, young or old, claims to be a conservative. That is akin to a death sentence in some areas.

  10. I don’t care if they are liberals, black, conservative, poor, frustrated, green or white. They have the choice of doing what is right or what is wrong. These THUGS chose to do the wrong.

    • You probably will find conservative black protesters but I’m sure you wont find them looting and burning. I not only agree with peaceful protests I encourage them, we need millions of peaceful protesters to march on Washington ASAP.

  11. If one has observed the failed cities, and states , and federal govs. they will have found a pattern of too much give as in freebies to the so-called unfortunate that the scales of justice has dipped way out of balance as compared to funds in to funds out. That is one of the reasons they have gone broke, and the permissable families , and governing bodies are at fault for a lot of the digression in these areas. Throwing more money at the problem won’t solve it either. And allowing illegals to come at will, and take more that they don’t deserve from our society is downright criminal.

  12. Liberalism in a mental disorder.

    • It is called the Democrat Derangement Syndrome (DDS).

      • LOL. I never heard that one. But GOOD!

      • LOL: I couldn’t help it but Nancy Pelosi’s face popped up as soon as I read your post.. Nancy would call me one of those Misogynists (I think I spelled it correctly)
        ” Liberalism is a Mental Disorder” by Doctor Michael Savage and “The Liberal Mind; The Psychological Causes Of Political Madness” by Doctor Lyle H. Rossiter a 35+ years Forensic Psychiatrist this book can be downloaded at his website for free. I haven’t got to Michael’s book yet in fact I just recently learned that it is his book I thought people were talking about Lyle’s book, Another good book you might be interested in Charlotte Iserbyt’s book “The Deliberate Dumbing Down Of America” for free at her website. She is a retired school teacher and former ambassador to I think Belgium.

  13. Don’t forget “Oppertunistic, jackels,”, like “Al the Rat Sharpton”, corrupt, white hating blacks, like **Bath House Barry, & *EEErake Holder, *Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett………Then there is : Nasty Pelosi, Dungey harry Reid, most the czars, & administration working for King Obamuslim………America is in “DEEP SH*T”!

  14. Democratic leadership/Liberalism/Progressive thinking are all perfect examples of failure in Baltimore. Just look around the rest of the nation, and you will see what’s in our future. Look at degenerate cities such as Chicago, Detroit, and Atlanta. This could really be a hot summer! Al Charlatan and the irreverent Jesse Jackass Jackson will have a lot of agitation in which to involve themselves over the next few months. Though they will be personally busy, they can always depend on BHO to keep things moving. BTW, As of today, we have 629 more days of the Obamanation of America.

  15. I’m sick of the excuses. If people want to work, they will work. But why should they when we support them. If those rioters and looters had to get up and go to work the next day, they wouldn’t be stealing from those who do work. It’s unbelievable how, now, we are not supposed to say Thugs?” That’s exactly what they are and more.

    • Linda, you are a lot smarter than Chris.

    • “Thugs,” racist ? I think NOT !! That’s what we called all the criminals in the Capone and other Mafioso families, bank robbers and thieves, murderers, I’m not ready to give that “handle” up to African Americans, alone ! It was our “really bad guy” name first !
      Obama was right !

  16. Douglas you are so Right!

  17. City Councilman Nick Mosby said the “system” has failed the young men. So what is the “system” supposed to do, provide an individule tutor to each and every oppressed low income housing child from K-12? Then buy them a house, in a nice neighborhood with a value of at least $200,000.00. Give them a Govt. job that will pay them at least mid to high five figures where they can work only if they want to. I wonder if this would be enough, probably not. In my 62 years I have watched liberals get everything they wanted destroying the country in the process. Looks like the libtards will not be happy until EVERYONE is standing in a day long line to buy a loaf of bread and a quart of milk!

  18. Blacks’ anger is not alone in Baltimore; it is all over the country. For instance in Wisconsin State governments there are agencies where Governor Walker does not want Blacks to work. These are Department of Corrections, Natural Resources, and Office of the Commission of Insurance. Reason? Governor Walker and the secretaries in those agencies do not believe Blacks can qualify for the positions in those agencies. This is even if they pass state exams administered in those agencies. In other words Walker and his secretaries have stereotyped Blacks as intellectually so inferior that even they pass the exams, they are not qualified. There is a pending case in the federal district court for the Western District of Wisconsin. Stereotype came to life when the attorney representing those agencies testified that she did not believe Blacks could be qualified in any positions in those agencies. And you think Blacks’ problems are only in Baltimore. Blacks should not trust
    Repubs appointed federal judges. I have told Blacks never to have their cases
    reviewed by Repub appointed judges in the 7th Circuit. These still think Blacks
    are intellectually inferior to them. But judges potential killers of Blacks if given change. I will keep you posted about the discrimination complaint in the federal district court,

    • Being angry does not give anyone license to loot, burn, pillage, rape, and murder. Once the first fire was set by those degenerate, hip-hopping, douchebag barbarian savages, any consideration for their grievances went right out the window. At that moment, we all chose sides.

      Once the rioting starts, then everyone within the violent mob becomes a part of the deadly threat that the mob represents. At that point, no one gives a rat’s hindquarters what the mob’s excuse might have been for starting a riot.

      It simply no longer matters what their “reasons” might have been for rioting. All that matters is how quickly the rest of us can put the rioters’ dinguses in the dirt.

      There are no “innocents” within a violent mob, only targets that deserve to be sent to their Eternal Celestial Dirt Nap.

      The use of social media to coordinate violent mobs of degenerate barbarian savages is exactly what was predicted by Matt Bracken in his 2012 article, “When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence”:

      https://westernrifleshooters.wordpress.com/2012/09/03/bracken-when-the-music-stops-how-americas-cities-may-explode-in-violence/

      “The enraged mobs in urban America will soon recognize that their spontaneous street riots cannot be stopped by the police, and then they will grow truly fearsome. For the police, it will be a losing game of
      Whack-a-Mole, with riots breaking out and dispersing at a speed they cannot hope to match.”

      We now know that the cops simply obeyed the Mayor’s order to allow the rioters to loot, burn, and pillage. Not being willing to stop that behavior, we should accept that they would not have bothered to stop the mob from raping or murdering, either. We cannot and we should not rely upon the police to protect us. If the cops are willing to obey an order to “Stand Down”, that means that they are willing to abandon all of the rest of us to the tender mercies of the mob.

      In the complete absence of police protection, there is little that the average Citizen can do against a violent mob except to deliver disproportionate deadly force against the deadly threat that the mob represents. Armed with the correct semi-automatic weapons, a disciplined team of four or five well-trained shooters can disperse a much larger crowd with
      well-directed rifle fire in a matter of seconds. But they must strike the crowd without warning from a sufficient distance away, and depart without having ever having been detected.

      It is bloody, it is brutal, and it is indiscriminate, but no more so than the mob itself. And it works.

      Matt Bracken covers this tactic, called the “Sniper Ambush” in the above article. With the cops being unable or unwilling to defend ordinary Citizens, it falls to those Citizens to organize themselves into Fire Teams that will deliver deadly force to the degenerate barbarian hordes, sending the unmistakable message that assembling for mob violence will always bring with it a very good chance of being killed or maimed, from any direction and without warning.

      No, it is not pretty, but war never is.

      • I know I am after peaceful demonstration and I did not like what I saw. But cops and Repub appointed judges have been bulling Blacks for a long time. In Wisconsin federal court, a judge by the name of Barbara Crabb wondered why a Black man scored highest score or #1 on written state exam. She was so angry to hear a Black man had beaten 200 white state exam-takers that she dismissed the complaint. The case was appealed to the 7th circuit. Instead of reviewing Judge Crabb’s decision, the Repubs appointed judges ordered the case dismissed and ban the Black guy from filing complaints in federal district courts. And you think this is news – the riots were extension of what has been burning in Black communities. I hope no such riots will happen again. But I hope federal prosecutors will sue Walker for enabling or causing Blacks to be denied jobs. I will keep you posted.

        • So, burning down buildings, looting, pillaging, throwing rocks, assault, and trying to set a pizza restaurant owner on fire inside of his car were “extensions” of some previous resentments?

          What incredible Horse Manure.

          First of all, I did not hear a single degenerate rioter in Baltimore go on the record as saying that the riots had anything to do with anything that had happened at any other time, anywhere else, to anybody else, other than the degenerate career hoodlum Freddie Gray. And not one of the rioters could have picked a photo of Freddie Gray out of a lineup, since not one of them knew him from Adam’s housecat. The Baltimore riots happened because of what happened in Baltimore, not anywhere else.

          Secondly, if the Baltimore riots were “extensions” of anything, they were extensions of the retarded Liberal policies that have created a underclass in the large cities, in which festers a subculture of entitlement that enshrines victimhood as something to be worn around like enormous chips on the shoulders of the barbarians.

          If the savages believe that they have been mistreated by the corrupt government creatures in Baltimore, then why have they voted the same party into power every year since 1965? If anyone actually were to blame for the prior poor treatment of the violent thugs, then it would the party that has been in power for so long over Baltimore.

          The voters of Baltimore keep voting corrupt Democrats into power every election because they are, well, Baltimorons.

          In essence, the Baltimore riots were not any kind of extension of any resentments that the barbarian savages might have had simmering on the back burner for years untold, but rather they were extensions of their own stupidity, evidenced by their repetitious election of corrupt Democrats into positions of power.

  19. The degenerate Baltimoron Liberals will never even *recognize* that this happened because of stupid Liberal cradle-to-grave Gooberment dependency, much less admit to it.

    That is because Liberals are all mentally ill. It does no good to try to reason with a LIberal, because they only understand emotion. Logic and reason simply are not a part of their makeup. It’s like trying to reason with a rattlesnake.

    Being unable to recognize their own individual responsibility, Liberals can obviously never feel any guilt for their actions. That is a symptom of their particular mental illness.

    All Liberals are Sociopaths.

    So stop wasting time trying to shame these people, they are incapable of feeling guilt for what they have created .

  20. 40 years of democrats and their failed policies, failed ideas, and failed solutions

  21. Baltimore is a lesson alright. A lesson as to the future of all cities that are mostly african american and run by liberal african american government! Let’s all watch the death of Baltimore! Just ax Chicago and Detroit!

  22. we look at communities like this in urban America, lack of education,
    lack of commercial development, lack of opportunities, it’s the
    socioeconomics.”…..lack of personal Responsibility, to go to school, learn, get up, go to your job on time, excel.

  23. The Sheeple drank the Koolaid and became addicted; it was laced with lies!

  24. One word describes those who burn, loot, and destroy their own neighborhood; that word is SUICIDAL. Mental illness reigns supreme in the ‘hoods of America.

  25. 1Ti 2:12 “And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.” Shalom!

  26. Robert Greeley

    Obama brings young Blacks to W.H., says he always wanted to upgrade their existence; send them home; tells the nation he wants 15 million ILLEGALS to stay, steal jobs, services and benefits AND forever dooms the same young Black men to eternal poverty, along with LEGAL vets, seniors and young of all races. I have not heard one Liberal comment on this treachery.

  27. To resident Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature:

    It is now Official that the majority of you are CORRUPT politicians:

    All America knows this – WE ARE NOT STUPID !!

    You have FAILED in EVERY “government program” you have shoved down
    our throats, while Overspending our tax dollars….

    Your day of Reckoning is FAST APPROACHING !!!

    2016
    NO DEMS !
    NO RINO’S !

    • The Primaries MUST produce fresh blood for the Republicans.
      The RINO’s must be removed from office and Term limits put in place.
      But I still believe that any Republican is better than a Socialists, I mean Democrat.

  28. Robbert Hoekstra Azusa

    Let’s not stare ourselves blind on what happened in the

    past, let’s focus on what is happening today. Our Arab Muslim “christian”
    leader is selling out our country right from under our noses. As a lame dick he
    is not governing by the U.S. Constitution but dictating with his hate and rage “agenda
    of REVENGE”. All in the interest of his political ambition to destroy the State
    of Israel and these United States. Those who groomed him for the job did well.
    Americans are too demonized by the fact of having a first black president they
    cannot see the trees through the forest, or rather, are too blind to see. Baltimore
    is just another “Benghazi cover up” for Hussein Obama’s lies and incompetence as
    a leader. What does it matter now! Give them space to burn, riot and loot! It
    is only property! Such is the mentality of our great black leadership. They
    turned America into a common third world African Republic ruled by ANARCHISM,
    immoral standards and poor family values. Like the monarch without clothes he struts
    his stuff like he is the messiah in person and he ain’t done yet.

  29. Republicans have done their share of pandering. The New Nixon and Bush’s “No child left behind!” The federalization of police power was begun under “progressive” Republicans.

    Look to power, how it is exercised, how it is institutionalized, how it is militarized, how it is centralized. As liberals like to say, “States’ rights are our greatest enemy.” Young people are not taught the basics of the US Constitution, which is now purely a non-PC text, but they are being taught by teachers who don’t have a clue about the Constitution.

    Everyone is trying to ride the gravy train, but it is more like musical chairs.

  30. Baltimore, Detroit, New Orleans, Atlanta, are all examples of what the civil rights movement was all about.
    Quit making excuses cowards. Multiculturalism is why this nation has about two years left. All of the liberal fairy tale hopes of racial utopia has culminated in the election of a negro as president. And everything went to hell. The End.

  31. take a pause-ok break it down: trayvon martin jumps from the bushes and says “you’re gonna die tonight ” and starts ground and pound/ mikey brown reaches into a police car, cracks the cops head and tries to get his gun/ bubba gray has 21 arrests since he turned 18 7 years ago, most for trafficking narcotics and burglary, Obama :the list goes on for days, al Sharpton frauds the irs of millions/ Cosby, serial rapist: if God said show me one good Black man or America is incinerated, the 50 states would be toast.if black lives matter– you don’t see one that does in the news

    RACE BAITERS: Don’t Want You To Know This About Black History – Truth has no agenda

    It’s a scenario I’ve seen dozens of times: While black thugs riot in the streets, white-collar pundits appear to fight back tears as they sympathize with the mayhem.

    “After all,” they say, “the black community has endured generations of racial discrimination.”

    Talking heads fill our TV screens as they continue to enumerate the offenses white Americans have committed from slavery to Jim Crow.

    Consequently, a false narrative has been embedded in the minds of Americans. The nation is suffering from false memory syndrome. Our ancestors, we believe, raided peaceful African villages, bopped innocent
    Africans on the head, then led them in chains to slave ships.

    Once in America we imagine wealthy white plantation owners forcing hordes of blacks slaves to pick cotton in the hot summer sun twelve months out of the year.

    The narrative is so well ingrained in our thinking that its seem almost sacrilegious to question it.

    Nonetheless, facts are stubborn and data takes precedence over anecdotes.

    Here are thirteen things most Americans don’t know about black history.

    1. America’s first black military officers served the Confederacy.

    In 1861 about 1,500 free blacks in New Orleans answered Gov. Thomas Overton Moore’s call to serve the Confederate army. The new enlistees were garnered at a meeting called by ten prominent black residents.
    About 2,000 blacks attended the meeting on April 22, located at the Catholic Institute. The new regiment was formed May 2.

    Considering there were about 10,000 free blacks of both genders and all ages living in the Louisiana in 1861, the large number of black enlistees speaks to the loyalty of blacks to the Confederacy. It can be estimated that as many as half of all free black males between the ages of 15 and 50 enlisted.

    The governor appointed three white officers to oversee the regiment. They were accompanied by three black officers appointed from the regiment. These became the first black military officers in American history.

    2. The first legally recognized slave owner in American history was black.

    Anthony Johnson came to the American colonies in August, 1619 as an indentured servant. In 1623 Johnson had completed his indenture and was recognized as a free negro. In 1651 he acquired 250 acres of land in
    Virginia, later adding another 250 acres; a sizable holding at the time.

    John Casor, a black indentured servant employed by Johnson, became what historians have long considered to be America’s first slave. His enslavement resulted from a legal dispute between Johnson and Robert
    Parker. Parker was a white colonist who employed Casor while Casor was still indentured to Johnson. Johnson sued Parker in Northampton Court in 1654. The court upheld Johnson’s right to hold Casor as a slave on
    March 8, 1655. The court found:

    The court seriously consideringe and maturely weighing the premisses, doe fynde that the saide Mr. Robert Parker most unjustly keepeth the said Negro from Anthony Johnson his master … It is therefore the
    Judgement of the Court and ordered That the said John Casor Negro forthwith returne unto the service of the said master Anthony Johnson, And that Mr. Robert Parker make payment of all charges in the suit.

    Five years later, in 1670, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting blacks and Indians the right to own slaves of their own race, but prohibiting them from owning White slaves.

    (In July, 2012, supporters of Barack Obama considered it politically advantageous to advance the notion that John Punch was the first slave of African descent in the American colonies. Obama is suspected of being
    a descendant of Punch through Obama’s maternal lineage.)

    3. Free blacks commonly owned black slaves in the antebellum South.

    Henry Louis Gates of the White House “Beer Summit” fame said, “This is the dirtiest secret in African American history. A surprisingly high percentage of free Negros in the South owned slaves themselves.”
    [Source]

    There were thousands of black slave owners in the South.

    In 1830 there were 3,775 such slaveholders in the South who owned 12,740 black slaves, with 80% of them located in Louisiana, South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. There were economic differences between free blacks of the Upper South and Deep South, with the latter fewer in number, but wealthier and typically of mixed race. Half of the black slaveholders lived in cities rather than the countryside, with most in New Orleans and Charleston.

    To write extensively about blacks who owned slaves in the antebellum South would require a library of full volumes. Black slave owners: free Black slave masters in South Carolina, 1790-1860 by Larry Koger is one such volume.

    Koger tells of Richard Holloway, Sr., a black carpenter who purchased his African cousins as slave labor. Cato was the name of one of his slaves. Cato remained in Holloway’s possession throughout the 1830s and
    ’40s, according to Koger, until he was sold to his son, Richard Holloway, Jr., in 1845. Cato died in 1851 and the younger Holloway replaced him with the purchase of a 16 -year-old black male.

    Koger says there were ten black slave owners in Charleston City, SC in 1830.

    4. In 1860 the largest slave owner in South Carolina was William Ellison, a black plantation owner.

    Ellison was one of many free blacks who, themselves, owned black slave labor.

    In 1830 there were about 319,599 free blacks living in the United States. That same year there were 12,740 slaves owned by blacks

    Black Property Owners in the South, 1790-1915, by Loren Schweninger is another excellent source for accurate history detailing the life in the antebellum South.

    5. Without black African slave owners there would have been no slavery in America.

    Henry Louis Gates enraged his base in 2010 by strongly opposing reparations to blacks. According to Gates the slave trade was almost wholly the result of black slave owners selling their human wares to Europeans.

    He wrote:

    While we are all familiar with the role played by the United States and the European colonial powers like Britain, France, Holland, Portugal and Spain, there is very little discussion of the role Africans themselves played. And that role, it turns out, was a considerable one, especially for the slave-trading kingdoms of western and central Africa. These included the Akan of the kingdom of Asante in what is now Ghana, the Fon of Dahomey (now Benin), the Mbundu of Ndongo in modern Angola and the Kongo of today’s Congo, among several others.

    The historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. The sad truth is that without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred.[Emphasis added]

    The notion of White European raiding parties descending on unsuspecting African villages is a gross distortion of reality. Not only does the historical record argue against White raiding parties, but such parties would have been costly and inefficient compared to purchasing Africans already held in slavery. White slave traders would
    not endure the risk related to such incursions. Furthermore, Africans already held as slaves would be less willing to resist, particularly among those whose African owners were brutal and abusive enemies.

    Gates noted on another occasion that the importance of David Livingstone’s disappearance into black Africa was significant because White people never ventured beyond the coasts. The prospect of disease and other unanticipated dangers compelled them not to embark on slave-hunting expeditions.

    According to the report of Joseph Cinque’s testimony in court, New York Journal of Commerce (10th January, 1840), the leader of the famed Amistad slave ship rebellion was originally taken captive by Africans, not Europeans.

    It is widely rumored that Cinque, himself, became a slave trader after his return to Africa.

    6. Blacks, including slaves, were allowed to own property in the antebellum South.

    The ‘rent-a-slave’ concept may grate against our contemporary moral sensitivities, but owners of black slaves often found it economically reasonable to earn extra income by renting idle slaves. We also may find
    it surreal to learn that slaves often rented themselves. This allowed them to live autonomous lives to varying degrees, depending on the rental agreement arranged with their owners.

    Mary Ann Wyatt is a quintessential example of a self-rented slave. She was a Virginian slave who rented herself (and her five children) for $45 per year for ten years. During this time Wyatt established an oyster retail business. Each week she would travel sixteen miles to the Rappahannock River and buy two baskets of oysters which she sold on the town square to local residents in King and Queen County. Wyatt earned enough profit to purchase properties including a rental house.

    Southern states enacted laws to regulate the activities of self-rented or otherwise autonomous slaves. This was due to concern that autonomous slaves would outbid freemen, including whites, for freelance work, such as construction. There was also concern that autonomous slaves would resell untraceable stolen property. This prompted free Southerners to press for limitations on what autonomous slaves were allowed to sell. Many whites favored the concept of autonomous slaves, believing it encouraged personal responsibility among blacks.

    To be continued …

  34. But look at what is running Baltimore amongst other similar cities. It is an elected collection of nothing but far left attitude. Who elected these people? Not only are the electors the disillusioned, but evidently they are also the clueless.

    It makes one question why the disaffected think that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting…well, you know. I think that they really do not want it to change. It is far easier to just be the victim, complain about it, and have permanent excuses to falsely justify bad behavior. Then wait for the next incident to act up about. Just listen to some of the rants when these folks are interviewed.

    We as a society have a long way to go to change anything when we have pent up anger, some of it quite legitimate but some really learned victimhood and little sense of personal responsibility or pride in any avenue to accomplishment. Quite often if you are the one who wants to work hard and get ahead in legitimate sociey you might be chastised for your “uppity” nature.

  35. Will there be anything more than mere mention of the abject conflict of interest in this city government, or does the left get a pass where the right never would…

    I find it intriguing that three of the police officers are black. How does that fit in to the greivances of racism? When your area of town HAS more incidents of criminality than the average, what do folks think about the assumptions that law enforcement make in that area? Most of the complainers would turn the other way to protect the very criminals that prey on their neighborhood. We’ve got a very nasty problem that won’t go away anytime soon.

    Not to mention the out of town anarchists who show up to agitate even further. These types must be pulled off the line and proscecuted under a whole more vigorous set of actions. Anarchy should be the ultimate prosecutable offense. It can’t be tolerated in any ordered society. I will not yield on this one. If one wants to play the ultimate high stakes role one must be prepared to either win or face the very dire consequences.

    To put it in perspective, our rebelling colonialists could be thought of as anarchists, their price of participating was serious consequence to all of them by the ordered structure of that time, British Rule. To make myself clear, in all likelihood, in those colonial times, I would have been a rebel (or anarchist) and would have know quite well the penalty of participation. When one shoots for high change in the midst of those seeking to maintain the status quo, one must be prepared to suffer the very dire consequences. Today, I am a defender of optimizing a current system that has more merits than it has detriments but am not averse to seeking change to fix the most negative aspects of that system where it makes logic and sense.

    I am just not prepared to line up behind leftist thought and supposed principle to do this. The left’s solutions are more often juvenile, tunnel visioned, myopic, feel good, and proven time after time to NOT WORK!!!

  36. Socioeconomics? They have EOE, ACLU, NAACP, UNCF, AAS, etc. I never received any assistance like that because I am white.
