Civil strife: lay it at the doorsteps of Democrats

Oh, get off it, Fredd, you can't possibly back that kind of statement up.

Oh yes I can.  

We see this again and again: black young men with no jobs burning things to the ground.  Watts. LA.  Detroit.  Baltimore. Ferguson.  Oakland.  Why?  Because Freddy Grey was killed by the cops.  Because Michael Brown was shot by a white cop. Because Eric Garner was killed by Staten Island cops.

Or, at least that is what is said on the streets.

Baltimore is in flames right now because blacks are not happy about their lot in life.  And the cops are targeting them, since most crime in urban areas is committed by blacks. What happened to young urban blacks anyway?

They don't have fathers.  Their fathers have left because there is no incentive to stay, primarily because the women in the household have the government taking care of them.  No need for a man.  And who decided that the government should do this?  Republicans?  Yes, some weak knee Republicans thought this was a good idea.  But these dumb Republicans are in the vast minority.  It was Democrats in droves who proposed welfare payments, earned income tax credits, food stamps and all other manner of handouts to minorities in depressed neighborhoods, and they proposed them year in and year out, and lots of those programs passed.  And, of course, the recipients would subsequently vote Democratic.  Often for life, as well as their progeny.  This kind of legislation works great for Democrats, who are perpetually re-elected because of their support for the down trodden.

Once these down trodden got their welfare payments, no need to work, because the government was giving them money.  Not a lot, but enough to pay for cable TV, and a case or two of Miller and a bag of Cheetos.  

Now we have an entire culture of down trodden, dependent blacks who are not happy that they can't afford Ferraris and beach front condos on what they get from the government.  And jobs?  

That's another Democrat remedy gone awry.  Manufacturing jobs were once the road to the middle class for those who didn't obtain college degrees, but those are no longer around in any abundance.  What happened to those manufacturing jobs?  Democrats and labor unions (who are almost 99% Democrats) in action, that's what happened.  

Manufacturers seek to minimize costs in order to stay in business.  When the American corporate tax rate is 39%, the highest in the world, what kind of manufacturers are going to give away that kind of money to a greedy government, when there are many countries that charge little or no corporate tax to business concerns.  Unions demanded three times the minimum wage or they threatened a crippling strike on these businesses. These manufacturers took their business and jobs to where they were wanted.  American cities sure don't want them, not with the kind of punitive taxes and union wages they hammer these businesses with.  

Do Democrats understand that union thuggery in action and by  taxing businesses out of the country, it affects the formerly middle class workers the most? And these formerly middle class workers are now under class unemployed disgruntled rock throwers.

Thank you  Democrats.

Baltimore, what a disaster. But the question is, which city's next?

LL said...

Baltimore is one of those places where everyone has a free Obama Phone...

LL said...

When there is no accountability why not throw rocks, steal Air Jordans and TV sets and torch police cars?

Ed Bonderenka said...

Nothing much more to say.
That about sums it up.
Oh yeah, I forgot.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Buying votes has never been more complete.

LL said...

Fredd, you are bordering on racism when you suggest that the white man has NOT been keeping the black man down with his hobnail boot on his neck.

Slavery ended in 1863, the War of Northern Aggression ended in 1865...just yesterday.

Fredd said...

Reverend: next city, probably Cleveland or perhaps Atlanta.

Fredd said...

LL: us Yankee racists call it the Civil War. Only filthy rebs call it the War of Northern Aggression.

Fredd said...

Odie; buying votes started when we gave no-accounts who didn't own property the right to vote.

Then women got the vote, and now here we are.

Not only am I racist, I am a sexist, too.

A well rounded jerk.

Brighid said...

Spot on Fredd, bless your heart, I never thought I would like a well rounded jerk, but there ya go.

Fredd said...

LL: with Democrats firmly in control in Baltimore, there is no hope for any change going forward. None. Their philosophy is the root cause for all of this, but they don't see it that way. Fools never think that they are fools. Just ask them.

And yet, here we are, Baltimore in flames, and the hapless, clueless mayor has the police stand down.

Idiots. And these thick, Democrat cretins think they are the world's solution for all things wrong.


Fredd said...


I agree that there should be more well rounded jerks in the world just like me. Lots more of 'me's' running around would be so much better for everybody. Well, almost everybody. Not for liberals. Or Democrats.

Did you see the wonderful Sheriff David Clarke say "these cities are a mess because of Democrat remedies which have never worked.." Great guy. And he's Black.

We're all crazy about that mother who beat on her kid and practically shoved him back to their home (I'm sure you've all seen the video by now, it's viral)...we all applauded her...turns out she's a single mother of SIX supporting them HERSELF. Five girls and THAT BOY.
I admire her passion for her son and knowing right from wrong, but...too bad she learned too late.
What can we expect from HER son and FIVE daughters for the future?
Not much, I fear....more trouble in inner cities is being raised in homes like hers, sadly.

LL said...

The hope for Baltimore is a massive Federal (tax-payer funded) bail out that will bring hope, change and vote buying freebies to the angry negroes whose welfare benefits are apparently not fat enough.

Beyond that, the place will become Detroit. It was already headed in that direction but the residents are tipping it further in that direction.

Clearly not ALL of the people in Baltimore are bad, but there are enough people there with >5 hat size mentalities (trying to be PC here) that no businesses will be coming to the inner city anytime soon. Sort of like Detroit.

Detroit is a sci-fi city that has to be experienced to be appreciated. Baltimore is next. After that, I'm thinking that Philadelphia (city of brotherly love) is potentially the next domino to fall.

Joe said...

Fredd, Fredd, Fredd, haven't you heard? If you do something I don't like or think is unfair, I have a Constitutional right to burn buildings, and cars, loot businesses and injure cops...if I'm black, that is.

Kid said...

You got it Fredd. And now the potential next POS white house resident of the USA says too many blacks are being arrested.

Apparently black people are incapable of committing crimes.

Fredd said...


Yes, the playbook of liberals is chock full of plans to screw things up trying to implement perfection, and then when all we see for their efforts are smoking rubble, they step up with solutions to these problems which are entirely their creation.

Pieces of work, all of 'em. And a pox on all of their houses.
