Rats, PBS and “Racism”

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 30, 2019

         BY NOW YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ATTACK ON ELIJAH CUMMINGS, THE CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE. CUMMINGS, WHO IS A VOCAL CRITIC OF THE PRESIDENT AND THE BORDER PATRIOL, SLAMMED THE PRESIDENT FOR SAYING THAT CUMMINGS’ DISTRICT IN BALTIMORE IS INFESTED WITH RATS AND CRIME AND HE SHOULD WORK ON FIXING THOSE PROBLEMS RATHER THAN SPENDING SO MUCH TIME CRITICIZING HIM.

         THIS PROMPTED THE USUAL “TRUMP IS A RACIST” RESPONSE FROM DEMOCRATS AND THE MEDIA. RACISM IS THE DEFAULT POSITION FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO DEFLECT ATTENTION FROM PROBLEMS. WHILE NOT ALL OF BALTIMORE IS INFESTED WITH RATS, PARTS OF IT ARE. PBS DID A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT IT LAST YEAR. IS PBS RACIST FOR POINTING OUT THE TRUTH? MURDERS IN BALTIMORE AVERAGE 300 PER YEAR. MOST VICTIMS ARE BLACK. IS IT RACIST TO MENTION THAT?

         DEMOCRATS RUN ALL THE CITIES WHERE HOMELESSNESS ABOUNDS AND CRIME IS HIGH. MOST OF THE CRIMINALS ARE NON-WHITE GANG MEMBERS AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. IS IT RACIST TO MENTION THAT?

         DEMOCRATS PROMISE TO FIX THINGS IN MINORITY COMMUNITIES, ESPECIALLY SCHOOLS, BUT NEVER DO. IN TERMS OF RESULTS, WHICH PARTY IS MORE RACIST? I’M CAL THOMAS.
