How Democrats Recreated the Middle Ages in America’s Cities: And they want you to pay for it

When it comes to federal aid, all Democratic mayors (backed by Democrat governors) are saying is: Don’t ask questions. Don’t expect accountability, or concern for public safety or the national interest. Just keep the money flowing.
The happy combination of ideology and gross incompetence which characterizes the administrations of most Blue cities has led to the current crisis.
The president has asked Attorney General William Barr to see if some federal funding can be withheld from cities that have allowed Antifa and Black Lives Matter to run rampant while crime rates soar.
The howls of outrage were deafening. Sounding like a mafia don (his alter ego), New York Gov. Dumbo said Trump would need an army to walk the streets of his hometown. He later walked that back, realizing that it sounded like he was channeling his inner Lee Harvey Oswald.
Having just emerged from the lab where his bolts were tightened, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said reducing federal funding for his city is “racist” (now that’s novel) -- unlike removing police protection from high-crime neighborhoods, which is a boon to minorities.
Mayors who’ve run their cities into the ground demand that the hard-working taxpayers of Indiana, Alabama and South Dakota bail them out.
According to the municipal watchdog Truth in Accounting, in 2019 (well before COVID-19), the unfunded debt of America’s 75 largest cities was $330 billion. Of these cities, 63 were insolvent.
The municipal response to the urban insurrection that threatens to destroy America is beyond disgraceful. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (who agrees with the mob on almost every point and fought to keep federal agents from his fair city) was forced to flee his $840,000 condo when peaceful protestors tried to burn it to the ground.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is a social justice warrior nonpareil. Her Facilities and Commemorative Expressions Committee is working on recommendations to remove statues and rename public buildings to stop honoring those who participated in “slavery, systematic racism, mistreatment of, or actions that suppressed equality for, persons of color, women and LGBTQ communities” – in other words, those like Christopher Columbus, Andy Jackson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and Francis Scott Key who offended the gods of political correctness.
