So, the cops in the glittering example of Democrat-controlled Baltimore apparently caused a dudes death by rattling him around in the back of a van without restraints, snapping his neck. This, understandably, annoyed the hell out of the locals. Understandably, they protested. Understandably… the protests have turned into the stock-standard rioting, looting, trashing of police cars… and now, setting old folks homes and churches on fire.
Way to maintain the moral high ground, guys.
According to CNN, the large building fully on fire in east Baltimore was the site of a newly constructed senior home sponsored by a church.
Yup. One more place to avoid.
Whenever there’s trouble, it’s important to look for the root cause.
Gotta go back to 1967 to find a mayor who wasn’t a Dem.
And then there’s this:
Fifteen people. Guess how many Republicans or Libertarians on the current city council. Go on, guess.
So, we’re stuck with the chicken-and-egg quandary. Does overwhelming Democrat control cause a metropolitan area to decay into a blighted hellscape, or does the cultural corruption that results in a blighted hellscape also result in Democrats?
It seems that “everyone in city government is a Democrat” is a warning sign like someone shouting “Allahu Ackbar.” You can’t draw a causal relationship between the signal and the trouble, but you can pretty well assume that if you detect the signal, trouble is surely in the wings.
