Baltimore Sun: Trump’s Comments On Rats And Filth Are Mean. Also Baltimore Sun: City Is Full Of Rats And Filth

By now you’ve surely heard about Trump taking a shot at Rep Elijah Cummings, noting that his portion of district in Baltimore is pretty bad. Rather than addressing the actual substance of the tweet (which, let’s be honest, is meant to drive Liberals insane), the Usual Characters went with claiming raaaaacism. Which is interesting, since the first thing they think of is skin color. Doesn’t that make them…..racists? Anyhow, how’d the Baltimore Sun cover it? (via Twitchy)

They’ve also noted that Trump was right about Baltimore’s problems back in 2016, and mapped Baltimore’s rat hot spots last August. But, see, now

Better to have a few rats than to be one

In case anyone missed it, the president of the United States had some choice words to describe Maryland’s 7th congressional district on Saturday morning. Here are the key phrases: “no human being would want to live there,” it is a “very dangerous & filthy place,” “Worst in the USA” and, our personal favorite: It is a “rat and rodent infested mess.” He wasn’t really speaking of the 7th as a whole. He failed to mention Ellicott City, for example, or Baldwin or Monkton or Prettyboy, all of which are contained in the sprawling yet oddly-shaped district that runs from western Howard County to southern Harford County. No, Donald Trump’s wrath was directed at Baltimore and specifically at Rep. Elijah Cummings, the 68-year-old son of a former South Carolina sharecropper who has represented the district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1996.

In pointing to the 7th, the president wasn’t hoping his supporters would recognize landmarks like Johns Hopkins Hospital, perhaps the nation’s leading medical center. He wasn’t conjuring images of the U.S. Social Security Administration, where they write the checks that so many retired and disabled Americans depend upon. It wasn’t about the beauty of the Inner Harbor or the proud history of Fort McHenry. And it surely wasn’t about the economic standing of a district where the median income is actually above the national average. No, he was returning to an old standby of attacking an African American lawmaker from a majority black district on the most emotional and bigoted of arguments. It was only surprising that there wasn’t room for a few classic phrases like “you people” or “welfare queens” or “crime-ridden ghettos” or a suggestion that the congressman “go back” to where he came from.

So, see, some equivocation and obfuscation. Fort McHenry isn’t in the 7th. John Hopkins is just barely outside of it. SSA? Depends on which one they’re talking about. But there is that assault on a Muslim city police department employee, which looks to have occurred within the 7th, and made the same editorial board upset.

Oh, and hey, boosters are going to launch a We Are Baltimore website after Trump’s attack! They might want to forget some information

No, not all of Baltimore is horrible, but, this is what Democrats have wrought in Charm City. As Todd Starnes notes

I feel great sympathy for the plight of the impoverished citizens of Maryland’s 7th Congressional District. For decades the Democrats have promised them jobs, good schools and safe communities.

Residents waited patiently for the Promised Land, only to discover the Democrats’ policies had turned their congressional district into a dystopian wasteland.

The people of Baltimore pledged their allegiance to Democrats in City Hall and Washington, only to be betrayed, their community turned into a dumping ground for the political ruling class. (snip)

The BBC featured the city in a scathing report on poverty in America. At least 25 percent of the people in Cummings’ congressional district live in poverty.

“If you want to know what poverty in America looks like, well this is it,” the BBC reporter declared. 

This is what you get in a city run by Democrats. And, if we want to go down the race route, it sure seems like they do not care much about Blacks, eh?

    To the editors of the Baltimore Sun: What does it mean if YOU hear the “dog whistle”?

    Show your work.

      So it’s bigoted to point out the Democrats treat their black constituents like the used to treat their black slaves? Perhaps instead of being “offended” by the truth the left should accept responsibility and begin to throw out crooks like “Elijah” and his wife and actually do what they’ve spent decades saying they would do. He has a salary of $174,000 and lives here:

      No corruption there, I guess.

      Trump 2020 Throw “Elijah” and his wife OUT!

        • Kye says:

          Clowns like you see raaaaacism everywhere. That’s why no one can take you seriously. I was pointing out the CORRUPTION, has NOTHING to do with race and race wasn’t even mentioned. Your inability to challenge the blatant corruption in the application of leftist policy in big cities that has resulted in third world style shit holes is in itself contemptible. Calling those of us raaaaacist for doing so is vile and dishonest.

          Trump 2020 Throw leftists out, they’ve ruined enough!

          • Zachriel says:

            Kye: Clowns like you see raaaaacism everywhere.

            Not at all. Racism isn’t everywhere. However, it was clearly evident in your graphic.

            The luxury home you depicted as being Cumming’s Baltimore home is actually located in Alpine, New Jersey. As of 2015, Cumming’s primary residence was a row house, when it was gutted by fire.

            But sure, there’s nothing racist about “Massa this” and “Massa that”.

    I wonder what formwiz will find wrong with this post? Perhaps I misspelled a word. Who knew Jeffry was really formwiz pretending to be an insane far right radical.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      Seattle is dying is another great piece on the wonders of a completely democratic controlled Major city.

      Try checking out Los Angeles now. They are trying to recall the mayor of LA for his total lack of dealing with the disaster that is becoming downtown. Much of it now looks like downtown Tijuana.

      Detroit looks like a bombed out city. Much of downtown is now being refurbished by the owner of Quicken loans who also owns the Cleveland Cavaliers. In fact he is singlehandedly rebuilding the main city of downtown Detroit using CAPITALISM to accomplish what a century of Democrats couldn’t do with billions of tax dollars.

      Democrats really need to stop, look in the mirror and reflect on their total losing positions and stop with the identity politics and once they do that they might actually be able to convince people about the need for GREEN and other stuff.

          Sir you are disingenuous. Seattle is dying is a 1 hour documentary done by a news station in Seattle which documents the massive amount of homeless drug addicts and the way in which the city has dealt with it.

          do your research. Seattle is dying. found on youtube watch it. You might learn something about the leftist telling the police to not enforce drug laws within the city.

          Once again disingenuous. A simple google will bring you tons of articles including MSNBC about the efforts to restore a destroyed downtown by one liberal leftist billionaire using his own funds.

          Los Angeles, Baltimore. You are simply being disingenuous and a flat out liar in an attempt to remove the reality of what is happening in your large urban cities with Leftists in charge. If you continue to deceive Blacks this is the 21st century and most of them have the internet and cell phones now. They can fact check YOU.

          putting up silly graphs about economy is hardly solving inner city problems now is it. Or do you insist their are NO problems in the inner cities?

          • Zachriel says:

            Doom and Gloom: Seattle is dying is a 1 hour documentary

            Apparently not. That a news report may use hyperbole is not news.

            Both urban areas continue to grow economically.

            Doom and Gloom: putting up silly graphs about economy is hardly solving inner city problems now is it.

            No. Nor did we say that these cities didn’t have problems. However, you were the one who claimed the problems were terminal. We provided evidence to the contrary. Instead of responding substantively, you just repeated your claim.

        • gitarcarver says:

          Zachriel:

          Your use of the graph on Baltimore is at best disingenuous.

          At worse, an outright lie.

          The graph includes Towson and Columbia, neither of which is in Baltimore City. It appears that you decided to use a graph that included Baltimore County, which is not the same thing as the City of Baltimore.

          The fact of the matter is that Baltimore’s “growth” is far behind the national average. Unemployment is higher than the national average. The City Council continues to put restrictions on businesses and new businesses that cost money and yield no benefits. (A great example is that UnderArmor wanted to expand and looked to do so in an abandoned industrial park. The City put so many restrictions on that move that the company scaled down the expansion, which meant a loss of tax revenue and jobs.)

          (Even the owners of the Pimlico Race track – where the Preakness is held – are looking to move out of the City. The track is in one of the most economically depressed areas in the city and one of the most crime ridden areas in the city.)

          The transportation system is a disaster. A recent report showed the MTA dumping money into light rail systems while letting traditional bus routes flounder. The result is that the system does not meet the needs of the people. Costs are up. Maintenance is not being done. Ridership is down.

          Like most cities, the infrastructure in Baltimore is bad. In some cases, Baltimore is worse. Nothing illustrates this more than a report from the state saying Baltimore no longer was able to paint traffic lines on streets. The City doesn’t have the tax revenues.

          Crime is up, but arrests are down.

          The City can’t seem to keep a police commissioner and even then, any reforms that are instituted are met with resistance from the police union. The City police department is under the oversight of the FBI and the DOJ after multiple cases of corruption were found and prosecuted federally.

          The Mayor recently resigned after an illegal publishing deal came to light.

          Empty available business rental space is at an all time high in the City.

          Education in Baltimore is, to put it mildly, an issue. The City employees more administration per student than most areas. More administration, less teachers.

          The economic centerpiece of the City – the Inner Harbor – is no longer is the tourist attraction it once was. There are no anchor stores and there is plenty of retail space available. Roving bands of teens attack people including one such attack last week where a person was attacked by a group of teens on electric scooters. They were beaten and kicked to death.

          The City literally has “blue light districts.” These are areas designated by blue lights on top of security cameras on top of traffic lights and poles. They police allegedly monitor the cameras (there is much debate about that) but won’t actually patrol the area.

          Baltimore is in a death spiral. The City Council broached the idea of declaring bankruptcy but the City Attorney’s office said they were not there yet. The response was to increase spending.

          Now you and others may want to include Baltimore County in with Baltimore City, but the two areas are not controlled by the same governments, police, etc. and have radically different policies.

          Next time try to be honest.

          • Zachriel says:

            gitarcarver: The graph includes Towson and Columbia, neither of which is in Baltimore City.

            Cities drive regional growth.

            gitarcarver: The fact of the matter is that Baltimore’s “growth” is far behind the national average.

            This is where you provide a citation. Baltimore City does lag somewhat in GDP growth, and has a number of problems, as do most large cities, but is still growing, meaning it is not “dying” as suggested above.

            gitarcarver: Next time try to be honest.

            Next time try to be honest.

          • gitarcarver says:

            Cities drive regional growth.

            In some cases that is true. However, the regional growth is tied to the growth of the city. Baltimore is no where near experiencing the growth of the surrounding Baltimore County. (Or Anne Arundel County for that matter.)

            This is where you provide a citation. Baltimore City does lag somewhat in GDP growth, and has a number of problems, as do most large cities, but is still growing, meaning it is not “dying” as suggested above.

            So you think a citation that shows exactly what we are saying indicates what you want to believe?

            You think a city with declining population, declining revenues, declining property tax base, more crime and more corruption is somehow on an upward track?

            Next time try to be honest.

            You lied and got caught Zachriel.

          • Zachriel says:

            gitarcarver: You think a city with declining population

            Baltimore City’s population is largely flat, slightly increasing, while the labor force is increasing.

            gitarcarver: declining revenues,

            City revenues are increasing. The city government has a modest budget surplus.

            gitarcarver: declining property tax base,

            Baltimore City is unusual for large cities in that it does not include the immediate suburban areas, which benefit from the presence of the city, but don’t pay taxes to the city. Total property tax assessments have been increasing since 2014. Property tax rates, though still higher than surrounding areas, have been cut for each of the last ten years.

            gitarcarver: more crime

            Crime remains an issue in Baltimore City. Most of it is concentrated in poor areas of the city. Police morale suffered after the death of Freddie Gray while in custody. However, crime is slowly beginning to decrease due to targeted policing.

            gitarcarver: and more corruption

            Corruption is harder to quantify, but the increased media scrutiny on city government appears to be resulting in higher standards for accountability.

    William Teach: Rather than addressing the actual substance of the tweet (which, let’s be honest, is meant to drive Liberals insane)

    So the substance of the tweets is not substance, but racist trolling. Got it.

      Your go to meme for the left is always anything said is RACIST or Homophobic and therefore meant to impugn the character of blacks or Muslims or whatever. Deny their is a problem in Baltimore and you are nothing more than a leftist enabler who enables those in charge to destroy lives of people by keeping them in misery and poverty while screaming everything Trump is trying to do to help them is a RACIST LIE.

      This once again is the 21st century. Blacks have cell phones and the internet. They are fact checking your BS. They are #walkaway from the democratic party. That does not necesarrily translate to becoming republicans but unfortunately for the left they are now able to get out of your lying echo chamber and see the world for what it really is instead of what the left tries to force them to believe it is.

      • Zachriel says:

        Doom and Gloom: No your again coming to this site …

        We just reiterated William Teach’s point. If the tweet was meant to “drive Liberals insane”, then the substance of the tweet was non-substantive, and it is trolling by definition, in this case, racist trolling.

        Doom and Gloom: Your go to meme for the left is always anything said is RACIST or Homophobic and therefore meant to impugn the character of blacks or Muslims or whatever.

        Well, no. You can say all sorts of things that are not racist. Trump went out of his way to racially troll. That’s what he does.

          • Doom and Gloom says:

            wrong. It was about Elijah Cummings troupes:

            “Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA,”

            THERE IS NOT ONE shred of racism in this post.

            “Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States,” he continued. “No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”

            NO RACISM HERE EITHER…..and oh by the way why not investigate WHERE THE MONEY WENT??

            Cummings took particular offense after McAleenan said he was doing his “level best” to handle the ongoing crisis at the U.S. border.

            “What does that mean? What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower? Come on man,” Cummings said. “What’s that about? None of us would have our children in that position. They are human beings.”

            Cummings has his own problems at home. Why are you and Cummings wanting more and more misery dumped on our doorsteps in the form of illegals when he cant even take care of his own district??

            Racism…..People there is nothing racist here. Only in the minds of the democrats which have ZERO to run against Donald J. Trump.

          No Human being wants to hear your racist lies. No one wants you to comment here. No one wants to listen to what you have to say. No human would agree with your views on Trumps tweets.

          Its a figure of speech and unless your black then of course it must mean I am a racist for saying these things. Sure their are some people in Baltimore who want to live in a house infest with rats but most likely they have mental issues or are so drugged up as to be out of their mind. No human would want to live in these conditions. Even the mayor of Balitmore, a Black woman said as much. Bernie Sanders called Baltimore a third world nation.

          No human wants to live in these conditions and for YOU to DEFEND this by throwing the topic from the rat infested swamp in which these people are forced to live to Trump is a racist is beyond the pale. It shows just how deeply the left really cares about those under their care.

          Just vote for us one more time and we will give solve all your problems. We will get you a 2 percent raise in your welfare. The GOP, those inhuman bastards want you to have a job and benefits and a 401k and a nice place to live. Those racist monsters.

    Z,
    You seem to have more of a chip on your shoulder than the other Zs. Let me reassure you that you have no idea what is racist or not. But in observing your comments it is clear that you are a bigot and an elitist. I think our society is getting a bit tired of children such as you running around calling everyone they disagree with racist. Now on the city problems, we are concerned that our major cities are decaying an d that people of all colors are living in these conditions. Much of this is secondary to political corruption. You would be able to see this if you were more mature, but you are still a child and act like a child. You seem to think that critics of black people is racist, hardly. What you are doing is extending affirmative action to every aspect of our society. Obama turned out to be the worst president we have had, was that due to his skin color? In bring up racism, you are labeling yourself a bigot and fairly ignorant.

          Ceremony is an important component of being a representative, in this case, important both to Americans and to Ghanaians. The primary purpose of the visit is meet with officials to discuss security and development.

    You can’t blame Zach for his racist beliefs. He comes from the upper crust elitist community who believe everybody right of Karl Marx is a ra You can’t hold it against Zach that he’s a racist left wing elitist. His people come from the upper middle class well educated morons that create places like the slums of Baltimore to “help” the plight of the black folk. His “people” think that blacks live in rat infested, drug infested, feces covered shitholes because The White Man™ did it.

    To elitist racists like Zach blacks are either too stupid or too lazy to kill the rats, clean up the feces, haul away the trash, fix and repair the buildings and even go get a valid ID to vote. It’s just the way “those darkies” are ever since The War of Democrat Rebellion. Why, without the gracious benefits of leftist socialism how would those poor folks survive?

    Then when people like you and me and Trump point out what the left has done to “their constituents” Zach & Co. have only one of two responses: either we MUST be racists, or they are WRONG! Obviously they can’t be wrong they’ve only been in charge of these ghettos for a mere fifty years. Give them time!

    Define “major” then show proof of your statement.

    “Which is one reason that people have been and are continuing to flee from rural areas to places with more governmental services”

    People are not “fleeing” from rural areas to cities for “government services”. Those services are available in the suburbs and rural areas also. Prove your statement.

    “Rural areas now have more poverty and more crime than do cities per capita”

    Once again you’re long on accusations and way short on proof.

    “And who moves? The young move looking for more opportunities in life”

    They’re looking for jobs but that all is changing since in the future they will work from their homes in the burbs free from the filth and crime of the DemCon run cities.

    “Trump’s son in law owns many crappy housing projects tell him to clean up the ones he owns in Baltimore”

    If you’re saying Trumps son (which one) is a slumlord then show pictures and proof of ownership. Otherwise you are lying.. Once again.

What are you guys hiding? The stolen tax money you have been using for years to perpetuate a string of leftist rulers in major cities. Payoffs? Bribes? Illegal contracts?

        We taxpayers poured almost two billion dollars into Baltimore a couple years back to clean it up. WHERE DID THE MONEY GO? You are all Grifters and thieves! Immoral, hateful grifters and thieves!

  15. Doom and Gloom says:

    What you failed to mention is that most of these violations were REPAIRED by Him. When notified that payments could be withheld and fines levied, the company made repairs in all but nine properties, the county said.

    NOTE: NOTHING REPORTED FOR 2018 or 2019. Only 2017 and most of those were immediately fixed and or repaired. How many of the buildings owned by other slum lords as Kushner is now being called were repaired immediately?

    The desperation of the left if oozing now. This is beyond racism. this is now mud slinging and in a few weeks everyone will forget The good people of Baltimore and move on to something else.
