I don’t know who she is but we need more moms like her.
Watching news coverage of the Baltimore riots last night was surreal. The video was compelling but the commentary was inane. Shep Smith called the rioters “children” and asked if the police had done something to provoke them. Wolf Blitzer sounded amazed that there was racial rioting in a “major American city”.
The interviews were even worse. The mayor of Baltimore denied she said what she clearly said. The usual suspects fought for air time to say the same mealy mouthed talking points. I couldn’t take anymore and switched over to Seinfeld reruns on TBS.
It should be pointed out that Baltimore has a liberal Democratic black woman as mayor. The police chief is black, as is about half the police force and the city council. The city has been under Democrat control for over 100 years. Nancy Pelosi’s father was mayor and she was born and raised in the local Baltimore Democrat machine.
Yet somehow this is the Republican Party’s fault. (I blame Sarah Palin.)
What we are seeing on the news from Baltimore is the failure of the Democratic Blue Model of governance and the results of six years of Obama’s racially divisive politics. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
