The dirty little secret no one wants to admit about Baltimore

By former Congressman Allen West
April 29, 2015
The population of Baltimore is 622,000 and 63 percent of its population is black. The mayor, state’s attorney, police chief and city council president are black, as is 48 percent of the police force. But as 36-year-old Robert Stokes says, “You look around and see unemployment. Filling out job applications and being turned down because of where you live and your demographic. It’s so much bigger than the police department.”
Everyone wants to have an honest conversation about race, so let’s us endeavor to do just that. Now, of course, when you speak the hard truth about race issues in America – and not just the liberal progressive talking points – and you’re white, you’ll be branded a racist. And if you’re black, well, y’all just watch the comments below and see the denigrating drivel.
As posted on by John Nolte, “Contrary to the emotional blackmail some leftists are attempting to peddle, Baltimore is not America’s problem or shame. That failed city is solely and completely a Democrat problem.

Like many failed cities, Detroit comes to mind, and every city besieged recently by rioting, Democrats and their union pals have had carte blanche to inflict their ideas and policies on Baltimore since 1967, the last time there was a Republican Mayor. In 2012, after four years of his own failed policies, President Obama won a whopping 87.4% of the Baltimore city vote. Democrats run the city of Baltimore, the unions, the schools, and, yes, the police force. Since 1969, there have only been only been two Republican governors of the State of Maryland. Elijah Cummings has represented Baltimore in the U.S. Congress for more than thirty years.

As I write this, despite his objectively disastrous reign, the Democrat-infested mainstream media is treating the Democrat [Cummings] like a local folk hero, not the obvious and glaring failure he really is. Every single member of the Baltimore city council is a Democrat. Liberalism and all the toxic government dependence and cronyism and union corruption and failed schools that comes along with it, has run amok in Baltimore for a half-century, and that is Baltimore’s problem. It is the free people of Baltimore who elected Mayor ‘Space-to-Destroy’.

Mr. Nolte is white and we all know the invectives which will be hurled his way — but he is absolutely correct.
I was watching the news reports from Baltimore and hearing all the condemnations from some about being kept down and the lack of jobs, opportunity, good schools — then why do these blacks keep voting for the same people? And this isn’t a phenomenon isolated to Baltimore.
Every single major urban center in America is run by Democrats — more specifically, liberal progressives, black or white. The morass that became Detroit. The killing fields of Chicago. The depravity of Washington DC. The shame of South Dallas. And yes, even the place that was once my home, Atlanta — even with all the successful black entertainers.
Now, I remember the first black mayor of Atlanta, Maynard Jackson. That guy was a leader and even spoke at my high school Baccalaureate. But today, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has done such a bang-up job that the Atlanta Braves are moving to Cobb County!
Just do the assessment yourselves, who are the elected officials heading up the urban centers? And where does one find the most dire socio-economic statistics?
Yet we hear these rioters blame whites — well, they need to make sure they’re specifically blaming the correct whites — those on the left. Blacks have been herded into these inner city clusters, a new economic plantation and in this 50th year of President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society — well, the unintended, or maybe intended, consequences are deplorable.
But Mr. Nolte does bring up an interesting comparative analysis. He writes:

Poverty has nothing to do with it. This madness and chaos and anarchy is a Democrat-driven culture that starts at the top with a racially-divisive White House heartbreakingly effective at ginning up hate and violence. Where I currently reside here in Watauga County, North Carolina, the poverty level is 31.3%. Median income is only $34,293. In both of those areas we are much worse off than Baltimore, that has a poverty rate of only 23.8% and a median income of $41,385. Despite all that, we don’t riot here in Watauga County. Thankfully, we have not been poisoned by the same left-wing culture that is rotting Baltimore, and so many other cities like it, from the inside out. We get along remarkably well. We are neighbors. We are people who help out one another. We take pride in our community, and are grateful for what we do have. We are far from perfect, but we work out our many differences in civilized ways. Solutions are our goal, not cronyism, narcissistic victimhood, and the blaming of others.

The truth is that it is a culture of dependency as promulgated by the race baiters and new plantation overseers of the inner city that has created what we’re seeing play out in Baltimore. There is where the blame lies, but there are very few who are willing to admit just that.
Remember what ESPN sports commentator Stephen A. Smith said? He wished that for one voting cycle, the black community would vote Republican. Heck, they could do no worse — and look, even the people of the state of Maryland decided to try something different and elected a Republican governor. Who, when finally asked, immediately activated the National Guard to quell the violence and chaos which the Democrat Mayor of Baltimore failed to comprehend, and control. Perhaps what we’re witnessing in Baltimore is the pure definition of insanity — continuing to do the same thing and expect different results.
Yes, the dirty little secret that no one wants to admit is that Baltimore, and so many other urban areas and inner city communities in America are a reflection of the abject failure of liberal progressive socialist policies as advanced by the Democrat party.
The preeminent question is whether or not those in Baltimore and other places will recognize who is truly responsible for their plight. Or will they continue to be manipulated and propagandized by the liberal progressive media and the poverty pimps like the one supposedly heading down from New York City.
John Nolte’s piece was spot on and this is not about an American failure, it is about a Democrat failure.

  1. Great post, Dr. Eowyn!

  2. Any mayor who would declare ” open season ” in their city should be seen for what they are , a mind numbed idiot

    • Actually, they should be seen, and indited as a criminal . . .she gave very specific orders for the police to stand down, and the riotous minions to loot and burn the city. She should be held personally responsible. Citizens with half a brain would start a recall effort today!

      • I wonder how many innocent people were attacked and raped while these monsters were rioting in the city?….and the police just stood there. I saw one police officer throw a rock back at the rioters…I could tell they wanted to go in but were ordered to stand down.
        Entitlement and ignorance is a mindset that is not only destroying Baltimore, but the country as a whole.

    • did not barry the unconstitutional, unqualified, illegal, muslim homo god of America call open season for the useless color of the world to harm America? “if had a son” no penalty for illegals, etc etc. how should the “American constituency be viewed? especially those “americans” that pledge allegiance to the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic? how about the last few generations that support unconstitutional policy? and yet the “americans” follow their god. has everyone become too poor to pay attention? is that what you mean by mind numbed idiot?

  3. Baltimore is just the most recent incarnation of the “If it feels good… do it” mindset. Trash it. Burn it. Don’t even think of creating something of a positive nature or of benefit to society.
    Just destroy your neighborhood….. or your nation…..
    Even the most stupid dog won’t shit where he sleeps. democrat politicians could take a lesson from the dog,
    Oh …. one more thing, just in passing. Elijah Cummings is an asshole.
    … and so is Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. She even looks clueless!
    Stupid is …… as Stupid does. And a democrat shall lead them.

  4. that author of this piece of ghetto trash article is wrong. It is America’s problem. welfare, subsidies, etc are unconstitutional. return to the constitution and there will no democratic party or black culture party. or any of the subhuman BS the hairless monkeys provide. last I checked the monkeys in the jungle fed and sheltered themselves. it appears that the “American black man” cannot. if it spent it’s time getting food and shelter it would be too tired to burn others property. if them men of America cannot feed/shelter themselves just bring back public hangings, if a person damages 100$ or more of another’s property the criminal is hung in 24hours. this also will stop the subhuman behavior. such ashame or sham to even try to blame 1sector of blacks against another, it is as futile and foolish as claiming there is a good muslim. wake up America, or soon you will be in annuls of history as the most foolish nation on the planet.

  5. I remember a statement LBJ made while he was white house resident, regarding the welfare state and his Great Society and I state, “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for the next 200 years.
    As far as the war for jobs goes, unfortunately or fortunately negroes ar not well suited for HI-Tek, IT and other scientific that require a lot of mental horsepower. it has been proven that generally they lack the gray matter, aptitude and cultural right stuff for technical jobs. I saw it time and time and time again in my engineering and IT career, they came in via AA, lied like rugs on their resumes, continually broke every rule and when management was forced to fire them or have any entire department walk out getting rid of them was next to impossible with the ADL, naacp, splc, jdl breathing down the company’s neck to retain Tyrone or else
    As far as that mayor???? goes she should be fired, no ifs ands or buts. In a sane world making statements like coddling the savages and giving them space to destroy is criminal at the least.
    It’s reached the point that only the return of Jesus Christ to blow away the evil, but the far left Marxists claim Jesus is on their side, is black and blesses multiculturalism….and the hypnotized masses eat this poison up.

    • poor Jesus, He gets blamed more than bushbeast jr. get your popcorn and soda pops, the greatest monkey show on the planet is going to start. it is written sin against the Father can be forgiven, sin against the Son can be forgiven, but sinning against the Holy Spirit is not forgiven. when the sin of subhuman creatures claim that the work of satan is the work of God {His Holy Spirit} the reward is reprobate mind. none of the masses are hypnotized, they simply chose to worship the creature rather than the Creator.

  6. Conversely,America is fast becoming a DEMOCRAT failure. And I’m not saying the Republicans are without blame. It’s DEMOCRATIC policies and ideals,their entire game plan and “vision” of America,and WHOEVER supports them that get the blame here.

    • democracy is mob rules. America was established as a republic. when the moor of rule of law was discarded it became mob rule. just the names of the 2 political parties tell the story, republicans for a republic and democrats for mob rule. unfortunately the “republicans” have forsaken their role/ideals. The constituency as a whole has also disregarded the constitution and rule of law as well. the country is ruled by the club, the belly, and fiat money.

  7. @polmutant and Lance Jackson,
    I find it ironic, to say the least, that both of you react to an essay written by Allen West, an intelligent high-achieving black man, with ugly racist comments, generalizing from the Baltimore black rioters to denigrate and insult ALL blacks. Shame on you.

    • i cannot speak for “lance jackson” but allen west has some far reaching skeletons, of the new world order type and is not the what he appears to be {this is based on homework, but would come out later as barry and drag queen has}. I am pragmatic realist, comments are made by 1s hand experience not hearsay. as far as generalization this group number wise leads the nation statistically in all venues of the article, cultural. in it is EVERY area that has concentration of such, so much so that there are federal programs to dissipate them into smaller communities that have also been ruined/in the process of ruinization through their welfare/entitlement world view life style, way of life. as for west yes there are those that “succeed” mostly at the expense of others through unconstitutional programs {affirmative action/whatever}. I do give way that there are black men that do strive with their god given talents and do offer a plus to society, these men usually LEAVE the rest of their “brothers and sisters” to new different neighborhoods were their “brothers and sisters” are mostly not found. have you ever dwelt among such for any duration of time?? if not perhaps going to such a place with your family for a year or 2 jaunt would be an idea to take hold of and get better first hand experience. I grew up poor, I suffered the abuse from such, and it is now expected that I should pay for them to continue?? furthermore for generalization please tell me what major USA city that has high per capita does not have the same issues? mostly not televised/expressed. these choose to act in this manner as a way of life. to do such first there has to be no respect for ones self, no respect for God, and no respect for others. respect is earned not given. shame would be to give respect to that which does not deserve it, doing this defiles natural laws of nature and economics. it is a sign of reprobation. I read Lances article and I found no fault other than what another may play a “racist” card for speaking the truth. I did stand in the mirror and ask myself if penance was due for what I wrote, but I could find only that if I did not speak truth, I would be ashamed. Please tell me what I wrote that the majority of this color does not subscribe to either actively or passively? I have never heard or seen alan west confront the black community, in fact this article is nothing more than a pro-republican anti democrat political punch, It does not address anything more than his parties political adversary, it says nothing about fixing the problem, as the fix would be hard and he would not get his vote. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, now why should I feel shame?

      • For starters, you should feel shame for not being able to compose a coherent sentence.
        Seriously, there’s no place here for the type of racism you spout. Until you take the time to educate yourself and come to terms with your own bigotry, you’ll never be a happy person.

      • polmutant,
        No where in all your previous comments had you EVER said that your characterization of Blacks as criminal, inferior, stupid are about a majority or a segment of them. You’ve always denigrated ALL blacks with the same brushstroke. Yes, too many blacks riot, loot, burn, and blame whites for their problems. But not Allen West (I have my problems with him, too, but then who’s perfect? You?). Not Erik Rush. Not Rev./Dr. Manning. They are certainly way more accomplished, write better, and are more intelligent than you.
        It’s people like you that make it even tougher for blacks like West, Rush, and Manning.
        How would you like it if someone generalizes from the deeds of the KKK and White supremacist skinheads to include ALL whites, including you?
        It’s your over-generalization that makes you a racist. You make principled Conservatives look bad and feed into the Left’s malicious stereotype of us.

  8. Let’s get that elephant out of the dark cave, see the whole animal, then solve the problem. These troubles are not caused by a particular race, political party, etc. The cause is the Shadow Masters, Master Puppeters, whatever you want to call the interationalist enemies of humanity, and they enjoy watching us fight each other while they may have a little adrenalin rush from the possibility of our waking up to reality. One problem is giving our money and power to the Federal government, presently run by those working for international homogenization for their global tyranny. If we had kept the wealth given to the globalists and their bankers, we would be doing very well, but our modest ambitions conflict with their desire to tyrannize, enslave, and depopulate us.
    Another problem: we must tear up NAFTA and other similar trade agreements sold to us with lies from those we trusted and bring back sound tariff rules. Just a hunch on my part, but I believe that you will NEVER hear a Democrat or Republican candidate call for such action. Alright, I have to face this, Bernie Sanders may do that as a Democrat, and he would be right on that specific issue. By the way, the first municipal casualty from our sellout that I know of was the largely black city of East Saint Louis, IL, after its manufacturing base left town. Then, good, dedicated police officers continued to serve their community by paying for repairs and maintenance of the police vehicles. That was years ago, but it will spread everywhere, suppressed only by our neighbors’ sons with uniforms and guns pointed at us for the globalists. Caucasions of all classes will then see what blacks are going through today. Not all whites are the people of the privilege bringing this about, and not all of privilege are white.
    For some, Hunger Games is a spectator sport, but for the rest of us, it is great trouble for those who survive or do not. Revelation/Apocalypse 12 being fulfilled.

  9. “narcissistic victimhood”
    Wow! That coins a new phrase in my personal lexicon! What a perfect description of “Race Card!”
