So a conservative activist and 170 other Trump supporters went to the rodent infested mess to do a little clean up, basically a little virtue signalling on behalf of the President. Local media assuming the worst

The Left doesn’t understand actual charity unless it’s a government handout.

I think it's amazing, and maybe this will inspire more people to help each other out. Amidst all the not-so-positive news it's something that reminds us the world is not simply black and white.

It's obvious what is going on. Trump supporters cleaning up trash in Baltimore is obviously done with some ulterior motive to try and motivate black people to vote for Trump in 2020. Just like him dedicating resources in an attempt to get A$AP Rocky released from Sweden was him pandering to black people too.

But Democrats that preach open borders and say they oppose Voter ID because it's racist are totally beyond reproach and aren't trying to pander to black and Latino people...

Black people aren't going to vote for a racist race-baiter like Trump. It just isn't going to happen. These fools should just go away and worry about their trailer parks and the "gubmint" keeps its hands off their medicare.

I'm amazed about the amount of angry and/or vitriolic comments here in this thread by people who tend to be more on the conservative side of things.

For my part I'll just say that anyone, including these people, who demonstrates an environmentalist streak is doing something worthwhile with their time. Cleaning up a city? Yeah, do more of that please.

This sounds great. I'm happy to see anyone contributing to community betterment so regardless of motive lets see more of it. Gods know I'd be far more inclined to consider right wing ideology if more folks were showing actions that are genuinely helping out society as a whole.

But I'll put it this way: if you think no one there has any ulterior motive you're being naive.

@joebones5000: lol, alot of people see blacks as one like minded group. That's just wrong. A lot of blacks would support someone like trump for the simple fact that he's open about his racism, doesn't hide in the closet like a lot of Dem candidates like biden, Hilary etc. Also many black people are concerned about the illegal immigration issue as well and appreciate what trump is doing. Illhan Omar may be black but people can see what kind of fool she is for supporting open borders. Also nobody would disagree that Somalia is a shit hole. Same story goes for AoC who supports open borders.

@plageus900: Factually every major shithole in the country is ran by Democrats.

https://www.usatoday.com/picture-gallery/travel/experience/america/2018/10/17/25-most-dangerous-cities-america/1669467002/

Every single district on this list is blue.

Democrats are also far more likely to be poor.

https://www.usatoday.com/picture-gallery/travel/experience/america/2018/10/17/25-most-dangerous-cities-america/1669467002/

There are hundreds of cities/counties and 50 States. A top 25 list won't do. But murder rate alone isn't a good indicator of shitholes, especially since A LOT more people live in dense blue areas which will naturally lend itself to that. Lets look at all the stats to consider which are the actual "shitholes":

On average Red is worse (shitholier) than Blue, with a lower HDI (more 3rd worldly) due to being worse in various facets.

-Red States and Counties have a lower Human Development Index: https://external-preview.redd.it/NqWzQFjAnQrQOaUNzGSKIWWaLnEaycCAK6-uHxyLswQ.gif?format=mp4&s=8bf427a8809a7fa5298f43dbf6f467ef840ce1c8

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a statistic composite index of life expectancy, education, and per capita income indicators, which are used to rank countries into four tiers of human development. A country scores a higher HDI when the lifespan is higher, the education level is higher, and the gross national income GNI (PPP) per capita is higher. It was developed by Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq, with help from Gustav Ranis of Yale University and Meghnad Desai of the London School of Economics, and was further used to measure a country's development by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)'s Human Development Report Office.[1][2][3]

-Red States and counties uses the most federal aid: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/21/business/economy/harlan-county-republican-welfare.html

-Red States and Counties are the most poor: https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2014/jul/29/facebook-posts/are-97-nations-100-poorest-counties-red-states/

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/us-states-by-poverty-rate.html

-Red States have much worse healthcare: https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-37a3f2d5bb8cc5cf53ab3aedeaea51a8

Ahuh. Hillary blah blah blah.

No one supports open borders. You fell for stupid propaganda.

The black vote refers to any sizable majority of black voters, which Trump will not get, no matter how much you wish for it.

Okay, this news story is as dumb as calling white supremacy a hoax.

@joebones5000 said:

Paying reparations would require an in-depth examination of ancestries of every African American in the nation just to determine who is actually entitled to reparations, as well as an in-depth examination of the ancestries of a lot of whites to determine who should be paying. After all, there are quite a few African Americans with absolutely no slavery in the United States in their ancestry and quite a few whites with no slave owners in their ancestry.

Maybe in the 1890s it was possible. Now? It's impractical to the point of being unworkable.

This was a great idea. Always nice to see people doing charity work and helping others out.

But come on, Trump's tweets at Cummings probably had some influence on their decision to do this in this particular area.

It's not sustainable. Welfare recipients in Baltimore needs Aussie style "work for the dole" for community based clean up.

It's a nice gesture on their part, to clean up the neighborhood for others. But in reality they are wasting their time.

If the people that live in the neighborhood had any civic pride, it wouldn't be necessary for outsiders to come in and clean it up.

Unless these volunteers keep coming back on a regular basis to keep it cleaned up, the locals will just let it go to shit again.

You know it would be done by giving the government your DNA.

No, wouldn't do it, they couldn't offer me enough.

I find it stupid when black people use these DNA companies, just asking to be convicted of a crime you didn't commit.

Do you spend time cleaning up parts of your city, beyond your own place of living that is? Maybe on a monthly basis or something?

Just wondering.

Or maybe they did because of the bad press their party is getting?

Edit: Still not a positive for trump no matter what spin you try.

A few things:

1.) These people showed how easily and quickly the dump could be cleaned up and if they were able to do it, why not the residents and ole lifer elijah?

2.) The area they cleaned is most likely back to where it was as the community doesn't seem to have pride in where they live and to keep your city/town presentable takes pride, ethics and work.

3.) Blaming is much easier than doing something which is physical and proactive.

@Serraph105: Trump did not clean up any part of the city, it was just his supporters.

But I think what you’re getting at is that Trump shouldn’t get any credit for this, but should be held accountable for any bad/negative things his supporters have done or said? Interesting.

I think trump's being held to his comments being negative.

@LJS9502_basic: “negative” according to who?

There are pictures of conservative volunteers (not the Republican Party) cleaning up the city, giving credence to what Trump said.

The only negative comments are the children here saying “durrr they should be cleaning up the trailer parks”. It just proves how much this forum is a joke.
