Letter to the editor: Baltimore brawl typical Democrat behavior
The “Baltimore brawl” going on between Congressman Elijah Cummings, who represents that district, and President Trump is a perfect example of the cancer that is destroying American culture.
Cummings started the brawl by personally attacking Trump’s head of Homeland Security in a public hearing. Trump defended his administrator, calling Cummings a political bully and calling him out for his own failure to stop the deterioration in Baltimore.
The Dems and the media immediately resorted to their standard playbook and called Trump a racist. End of discussion.
But the truth is that the liberals (Democrats) own the cities with high crime, poverty, drugs and lousy schools. According to Walter Williams (“Was Trump right about Baltimore?,” Aug. 9, TribLIVE), in 2016, of the 3,804 Baltimore students who took the state’s standard math test, only 14 tested proficient. Williams also opines that the average black Baltimore high school grad may not be able to function at even a sixth- to eighth-grade level. FBI stats from 2017 showed Baltimore had the second highest murder rate in the country, and, according to Orkin, was the ninth most rat-infested city in 2018. Cummings himself called Baltimore a drug-infested city back in 1999.
What has Cummings done to fix these problems except call Trump a racist? Trump never mentioned Cummings’ race, but in modern America, blacks and whites can no longer even talk about these problems. Thus political correctness wins, black Americans lose.
Are you proud of that, Democrats?
