FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump ramped up his feud with House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., on Sunday calling the congressman “racist,” not long after critics had claimed the president’s initial tweets about Cummings were racist themselves.
Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon, “If racist Elijah Cummings would focus more of his energy on helping the good people of his district, and Baltimore itself, perhaps progress could be made in fixing the mess that he has helped to create over many years of incompetent leadership.”
He added, “His radical ‘oversight’ is a joke!”
The day before, Trump also called out Cummings, calling him a “brutal bully” for how he spoke to border patrol officials. Trump said the congressman’s Baltimore district was in “FAR WORSE” shape than the situation at the southern border.
That rebuke resulted in claims of racism from Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Trump hit back, citing claims of racism against Pelosi from some progressive Democrats.
The president appeared to be referring to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., accusing Pelosi earlier this month of “singling out” women of color. That was after Pelosi dismissed Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad” — including Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley — as being more influential on social media than in Congress. Trump defended Pelosi at the time.
On Saturday, Pelosi stood by Cummings and the city of Baltimore, where she was born, and rebuked Trump, calling his remarks “racist.”
“We all reject racist attacks against [Cummings] and support his steadfast leadership,” Pelosi tweeted Saturday.
Trump responded, “There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!”
Later Sunday, Trump pointed out that “African American unemployment is the lowest (best) in the history of the United States,” under his administration.
Trump went on to say he was “Waiting for Nancy and Elijah to say, ‘Thank you, Mr. President!’”
Cummings did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Among Trump’s tweets Saturday, one included a video purportedly showing blight in Baltimore. He asked the congressman, “why don’t you focus on your district!?”
Cummings responded to Trump’s initial criticism, however, writing in a tweet, “Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors.”
He added, “It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.”
Why have the Democrats been trying so hard to portray a man who does not have a racist bone in his entire body as a “racist”?
I will give you a clue: it has something to do with the fact that he is not afraid to come after the Democrats concerning THEIR poor treatment of black Americans.
In the past, Democrats have relied on around 97% of black Americans to vote for their Presidential candidate.
This is why they are freaking out over Trump’s calling out of Cummings’ treatment of his contituency…and why the producers of Saturday Night Live tried to stop Kanye from wearing his Trump hat in front of the cameras last year.
America’s Far Left Democratic Party, including the Former President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) are still attempting what is known in both sports and military strategy, as a “misdirection” play.
While politicians and paid protesters shout about “equality” in front of every television camera that they can get in front of, at the same time, here in the real world, black children are being born into a situation which handicaps them from the start: the burden of an illegitimate birth and the reality of a fatherless home.
How many black children are being born out-of-wedlock?
Among non-Hispanic blacks, the figure is highest, at 72.2 percent; for American Indians/Alaska Natives, it’s 66.9 percent; 53.5 percent for Hispanics; 29.4 percent for non-Hispanic whites; and a mere 17.1 percent for Asians/Pacific Islanders.
These Americans, unlike the majority of us, are growing up without appropriate parental guidance, i.e., no one teaching them “the way in which they should go”
What are the consequences of growing up without a strong Father figure?
How did the once strong Black American Family Unit get torn asunder?
Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.
Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.
First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.
It also helped to cement in stone, minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.
The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.
A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.
What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.
It had the opposite effect.
The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.
“Uncle Sugar”, the Democratic Party while holding power in DC, became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.
A few years ago, I worked at our county’s State Employment Center Office.
While at the Employment Office, I was able to observe Americans, both Black and White, down on their luck, struggling to find work and survive in this economy. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of “unemployed ” who came to this particular office were Black.
I saw Black American Families whose existence living on the Government Dole, had become generational.
It is these people whom Obama and the Democrats have hypnotized into believing that Uncle Sugar loves them, and is their only solution to surviving a stifling existence.
They are so, so wrong.
The strength and vitality of America does not come from the benevolence of a Nanny-state Federal Government.
As the greatest American President of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan said:
The nine words you never want to hear are: I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.
Being enslaved to the Government Dole steals one’s ambition. It takes away any impetus or desire to create a better life for yourself and your family, to challenge yourself to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and pursue the American Dream. It makes you reliant on a politically motivated spider’s web full of government bureaucrats who view you and your family as job security.
I watched American citizens trapped in this web of government bureaucracy, so numbed of any initiative that they once had, that they seemed offended that they actually had to prove that they inquired about three jobs that week in order to keep their “benefits”. Others seemed puzzled that they had to search through the state data base and pick out a job that they wanted to talk to an interviewer about receiving a referral to, and weren’t just simply handed a job when they walked through the door.
Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, these people I saw, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.
During the Obama Administration, racial division in American became intentionally exacerbated for the purpose of political gain and the results of LBJ’s “Great Society” became the lead story in every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.
The Democrats’ intentional psychological and economical limiting of black Americans’ opportunities in modern society as been repeatedly called out by President Trump.
That is why the Democrats are so upset about his calling out Cummings and why they, including Cummings, are so feverishly attempting to label the President as a RAAACIIIST.
And, after reading Cumming’s, Pelosi’s, Joe Lockhart’s, and all of the other Democrats labeling the president and Trump supporters as racist all over social media yesterday, I do not blame Trump for responding in kind to Rep. Elijah Cummings in kind.
The Democrats are not used to a Republican President who will fight back.
In fact, they do not know how to handle it.
The Democrats profit from a divided America.
Including those who are dead set in somehow ending the time in office of our current President, Donald J. Trump.
Which is very strange to me. You see, those who wish him to be gone have adopted the worn-out tactic of accusing Trump of racism, like Juan Williams of Fox News does on a regular basis, which is a very odd tactic to use.
The reason that I say that is because the National Black Unemployment Rate remains at an all time low.
The part of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s magnificent speech about “the content of their character” has been purposefully ignored by the Democratic Party and their minions for several decades, taking a back seat to their all-consuming quest for political power and bulging pocketbooks.
Dr. King’s call for self-reliance took a back seat to their self-serving agenda, a long time ago.
And, that resulted in the purposeful dissolution of the Black American Nuclear Family, a cycle of poverty, and an inability or unwillingness of some to take a risk and to break out of a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure perpetuated by self-serving politicians and “community leaders” who have made careers out of limiting the participation of Black Americans in the American Dream.
No American should be held back from working hard and succeeding simply because achieving the American Dream on their own does not fit into a political party’s self-serving agenda.
President Trump genuinely wants to help.
And, the “New Bolsheviks” of the Far Left Democratic Party simply cannot allow that to happen.
