From The Pirate’s Cove:
Very Liberal And Democratic Party Run Baltimore Ties 43 Year Old Murder Record
By William Teach | August 1, 2015 – 7:10 am
Things are going swimmingly in yet another Democratic Party run city, and firing the chief of police has really helped, and #BlackLivesMatter or something:
(AP) Baltimore reached a grim milestone on Friday, three months after riots erupted in response to the death of Freddie Gray in police custody: With 45 homicides in July, the city has seen more bloodshed in a single month than it has in 43 years.
Police reported three deaths — two men shot Thursday and one on Friday. The men died at local hospitals.
With their deaths, this year’s homicides reached 189, far outpacing the 119 killings by July’s end in 2014. Nonfatal shootings have soared to 366, compared to 200 by the same date last year. July’s total was the worst since the city recorded 45 killings in August 1972, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Last year, Baltimore recorded 208 homicides. Of those, 189 where Blacks, and mostly men. The numbers aren’t out for 2015, but, again, the vast majority of homicide victims in Democratic Party run Baltimore are Blacks, and mostly men. The Baltimore Sun also reminds us that the city had 275,000 more residents in 1972 than it does now. I suspect the city’s population will drop even more by the end of this year, as residents of all colors get the heck out.
Non-Hispanic white women account for 36% of abortions, non-Hispanic black women for 30%, Hispanic women for 25% and women of other races for 9%.
- Blacks comprise only 13% of the population of America but account for 37% of all abortions.
- Black women are five times more likely to abort than white women.
- 69% of pregnancies among Blacks are unintended, while that number is 54% among Hispanics and 40% of pregnancies among Whites.
- Planned Parenthood, the largest seller of abortions in the United States, has located 80% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods, disproportionally targeting minorities for abortion.
Our large urban areas are run almost exclusively by the Democratic Party, and it is among Democrats that the support for abortion is strongest. And black Americans give 90% and more of their votes to Democratic candidates.
Yet, when you look at the numbers, it’s difficult to conclude anything other than the Democrats are hazardous to the health of black Americans. The Democrats support policies which disproportionally reduce the black population even before birth, and the Democrats have enabled an urban culture which puts the lives of black Americans disproportionately at risk, and the Democrats have supported policies which, 69 years after Brown v Board of Education, and 51 years after the Civil Rights Act, have still left black Americans disproportionally poor.
Oh, to be sure, the Democrats talk a great game! The Democrats tell us, almost constantly, how much they care for black Americans and the plight of the black community, but the actual results the Democrats and their policies have produced don’t match their talk in the slightest.
A lot of conservatives point out the fact that the Democrats were the party of slavery, that it was the Democrats who were the Southern resisters, and that the Republican Part arose from the opposition to slavery. That’s historically true enough, but none of those people are alive today, and that’s the reason I’ve never pointed it out previously. Rather, what I see is a Democratic Party which helps to keep black Americans enslaved today! The Democratic Party of today supports a welfare system on which a disproportionate number of black citizens rely, but it is also a welfare system which ensnares and traps blacks in poverty.
Objectively, it’s difficult to see how the Democratic Party is anything but harmful to black Americans. They are like the pushers, who promise their constituents less expensive drugs, all the while keeping them addicted.
