Inane Comments About Baltimore
We still don't know all the facts about the death of Freddie Gray, which has led to riots in Baltimore, but it is not too soon to pass judgement on some of the comments coming in.
Like this series of empty platitudes from Her Majesty, Hillary Clinton:
"It's time to end the era of mass incarceration."
Mrs Clinton apparently has nothing to say about ending the era of mass crime. Or maybe she is just worried about the prospect of her own possible incarceration given the latest scandals being uncovered.
Even more outrageous was CNN's Brooke Baldwin, who blamed the problem on returning military veterans. Breitbart has the clip where Baldwin, who is usually too busy opining to ask serious questions, is interviewing Elijah Cummings, who "represents" Baltimore in Congress when he is not defending Obama's scandals.
At least she didn't accuse them of being the biggest terrorist threat in America like Janet Napolitano did.
And what is this stuff about apologizing on Twitter? No, Brooke. You said it on national TV; apologize on national TV.
If we are going to have a discussion about the state of the black community in Baltimore and other US cities, looking for deeper causes for all the misery, is it not time we ask why so many of these problems exist in metropolitan areas long dominated by the Democratic party? What have they accomplished for their communities in places like Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit and other places? Yet, black voters never seem to hold them accountable.
