Q: Why are you leaving Baltimore? A:I'd rather live in a "concentration camp" at the border. Political Cartoon by A.F. Branco
Trump tweeted (paraphrased) two facts: (1) "Rep, Elijah Cummings (D) bullied border agents about conditions at the Southern Border (2) Cummings Baltimore district is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. And maybe he should focus on cleaning up that dangerous & filthy place. Well, the left and their media (CNN, NBC, NYT, and other FakeNews) hates truth. So they screamed, "Racism" to distract. To them, it's irresponsible of the President who has done more to help the black community than any other in my lifetime, should point out we should do more to improve the conditions of black citizens in Baltimore?If it is racism, then:
  • 2015 Bernie Sanders is racist for calling Baltimore "a Third World Country"[1]
  • Orkin Pest Control rated Baltimore as the 9th worst (dropping from 8th the year before) "rattiest" city in the nation.[2]
  • Baltimore’s former mayor Catherine Pugh (D) complained multiple times about the problem.
  • New York Times has published multiple articles about how rat infested the city is.[3]
  • 2018 - PBS ran a whole special on Baltimore's problem called, "Rat Film".[4]
  • 1999 - Back when we were partying like Y2K was coming, Elijah Cummings is caught on CSPAN calling his community drug infested, and people walking around like Zombies. "Infested" is only racist when Trump says it.[5]
  • While doing a live shot report refuting Trump's claims about being "rat infested", a rat photobombed through the scene confirming Trump's point.[6]
  • How racist is Trump? His administration gave $16B in 2018 alone, to try to help Elijah Cummings distract. I think Trump's doing racism wrong, or I want him to be bigoted against me.[7]

The only thing worse than their rat problem is their homicide rates (They're often #1), and second worst for violent crime. So Trump's claims were true, and many Baltimore citizens posted videos to prove it. But it's only racism when Trump says the same things as the Democrats? The left can't stop with the Fake Racism attacks, and would rather attack Trump than address real problems for minorities. So who are the real bigots?

Issue Lie Truth
Baltimore Democrats are outraged at the racism of Trump criticizing Baltimore, especially with terms like rats or infestations. They are also outraged at Trump for denying people from crime ridden places like Mexico, Guatemala or Honduras automatic asylum because of their crime and murder. Democrats and their media widely criticized Baltimore for years prior to Trump, especially over the rat infestation: it's only racist when Trump says it. Baltimore has worse murder and crime rates than Mexico, Guatemala or Honduras. If Democrats have sympathy for people from those shithole countries, then why not Baltimore?
❝ Trumps about to execute a white supremacist, while trying to free a black rapper from jail, as he pushes prison reform that directly benefits families of black men, while calling out a city where minorities are victims of crime & blight. if Trumps a racist, he sucks at it. ❞


Is Trump a racist?

Let's start by reviewing what words actually mean:

Racism - ray•se•zem. noun: the belief that ALL members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

Not-racism: Racism isn't dating, employing and marrying foreigners, or being a loudmouthed douche, it's not insulting an individual because you don't like them (even based on race, or something they said/did): that's just a personal attack. Those might be insensitive, but words have actual meanings. Mexicans aren't a race. Islam is not a race. The border wall or getting tough on illegal immigration isn't racism. It certainly wasn't labelled that when Bill and Hillary were for it. It's not winning awards for racial inclusiveness, hugging and hanging out with celebrities of other races, nor celebrating other races with monuments. So there's actually no real evidence of his Trump's racism, but lots of evidence of the self-deluded bias of his detractors, and the gullibility of their followers who repeat accusations without understanding them.. more...

Double Standards

I've claimed that the if the left didn't have double-standards, they wouldn't have standards at all. That's of course not completely fair, as I'm sure there are a few people that are hard core leftists that have standards and will be as outraged by their sides bad behavior as they are against the other. Someday I'll meet them. But for now, it's the 90% of vocal ones that give the rest a bad name. Here's just a list of examples of cases where I'm annoyed by the hypocrisy.
