How 50 Years Democrat Policies Destroyed America’s Cities
Learn how fifty years of Democrat policies destroyed America’s cities. In this video, entitled The Most Shameful Injustice host Bill Whittle narrates a powerful video presentation that analyzes what happens to America’s cities when you subject them to fifty years of democrat policies pursuing a long-term liberal agenda.
For a case study, we examine the results of fifty years of uninterrupted democrat policies on the City of Detroit, once one of America’s greatest cities. In 1960, Detroit was a shining example of America’s industrial might.
Today we think of Detroit in much the same way we think of Beirut, but in 1960 Detroit was the most affluent city in America. In 1960, the Motor City boasted the highest per capita income and schools which were rated among the highest in America. The last year that Detroit had a Republican mayor was 1960. In the fifty years since, Detroit has been destroyed by democrat policies in pursuit of a liberal agenda.
Democrat policies have given Detroit 300,000 vacant, uninhabitable homes and the worst systemic unemployment in America. What were the best schools in the country fifty years ago, now have fourth graders that cannot read or write at a fourth grade level.
Detroit is still pursuing democrat policies and the liberal agenda boasting public schools that spend more than $15,500 per year, per student; more than any other city in the country. The liberal agenda and democrat politicians have given Detroit the highest property tax rates in America. That’s right, as unbelievable as it may seem, tax rates are higher in Detroit than they are in Beverly Hills, Georgetown or Miami Beach.
Despite the highest taxes in the country and outrageously high spending, the Motor City is one of the most dangerous cities in America. Crime in Detroit is rampant. The Detroit Police have an average emergency response time of 58 minutes and one third of the city’s ambulances do not run.
Reversing the damage from fifty years of democrat policies may well prove impossible. Political correctness prevents honest discussion and you cannot complain or criticize Detroit’s government officials, or you’re a racist. It really is a most shameful injustice.
