Cities across America are seeing a startling rise in murders on President Obama’s watch. Milwaukee was once a clean, prosperous city then the far left democrats took control and down it went. An old story for many of America’s largest cities. So far this year in Milwaukee, 104 people have been killed and we’ve still got 3 months to go! There were 86 homicides in 2014 and they thought that was bad!
In Baltimore homicides just hit 215, up from 138 at the same point in 2014. Baltimore is run by democrats and they have a black city council, a black mayor and black AG, so now who can they blame? More than 30 other democrat-run cities with large black populations have also reported similar increases in violence. In New Orleans, 120 people had been killed as of late August, compared with 98 killed during the same period a year ago.
In Washington with all their tough gun control laws the murder toll is now 105, compared with 73 people a year ago. And in St. Louis, 136 people had been killed this year, a 60 percent rise from the 85 murders the city had by the same time last year. Now consider, these are mostly black on black homicides!
What’s the cause of this? Law enforcement experts tend say one thing in public and another in private. They know this crime wave is do to the actions and inaction’s in the White House. Barack Obama has created a false cause of victim hood for blacks and its resulted in distrust and disrespect for law enforcement. Police have reacted to this by not being as aggressive as they once were and crime has in-filled that enforcement vacuum.
Of course there are many disparate factors to be considered here and the reasons change from city to city, but it boils down to several main causal factors: Obama’s tacit endorsement of sanctuary cities and open borders. Obama’s tendency to be automatically siding with blacks against the police. Obama’s refusal to come down hard on the provocateurs, the race-baiters and black militants stirring up the hate. In example of this, recently we have seen these crazy militants calling for murder of police officers and its actually happened too! And lastly is the rise of large drug dealing black gangs with tons of money and guns and that thin blue line is no longer the threat to them it once was. The result has been a surge in black on black homicides and Obama helped it happen.
President Obama has had many opportunities to take a leadership position in the black community, because he can speak with great authority. He could say something about the rapes, robberies, murders and drugs that plague the black communities that could change lives. But, he didn’t. Demanding accountability and supporting police could have been one of his crowning achievements! Instead he has made it his priority to blame the justice system for incarcerating too many blacks. In Obama’s bias world, it must be the system’s fault, it couldn’t possibly be the offender’s fault.
After all his missteps, and they are many, I don’t think it’s any stretch to say Barack Hussein Obama has fundamentally transformed this country into a debt and crime riddled country that is now far more racially divided nation than it was when he took office.
