Liberals, you should be ashamed of yourselves for wrecking Detroit
Coach is Right ^ | 7/21/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Liberals you should be ashamed of yourselves for the misery and destruction you have forced on Detroit. Because of liberal policies Detroit, an American city that once was the very epitome of the benefits of capitalism, was once able to boast of the highest standard of living of any city in the world is now little more than a garbage heap people want to run from.

Today Detroit has roughly 700,000 people. In 1960 Detroit had 1.6 million people. They were auto workers and auto manufacturing executives. They manufactured things and traded an honest day’s work for a decent middle class salary. Then you took over, liberals. In 1962 the last Republican mayor left office. Your greedy unions swamped Detroit and all of a sudden every demand from every group was met. The debt you caused and the criminals you elected to run Detroit...

Liberalism is the EFFECT not the cause. Incompetent officeholders and population are the cause.

When have libtard filth EVER been ashamed of anything they’ve done? They are vile, perverted sociopaths devoid of any conscience... it is not possible for them to even comprehend the meaning of shame, let alone possess the ability to express it.

It's white people's fault for leaving. That what the leftists are saying, anyway...it couldn't possibly be because a Democrat-controlled government failed.

The left did not wreck Detroit....Blacks did.

Seattle, Portland and Austin are run by lefties and are functional. They are mostly white, safe and have a business class.

It’s time to put the blame exactly where the blame lies—blacks.

Flame away...

Liberals have shame? Lol!

Look at Detroit, Philadelphia, Illinois, Malmo, California, Cuba, Venezuela, Greece, Spain, Zimbabwe, etc., etc. etc. or anywhere else Liberals rule.

All once prosperous, then the Liberals took charge and now failure, corruption, decadence, misery, violence, bloodshed are the norm.

Obama and the Democrats are doing the same to America as whole.

With all the misery and horror Liberals caused the human race, one wonders how they can sleep at night. Oh yeah, they childishly name call, mindlessly parrot silly sound bites, habitually lie and blame everyone else but themselves. Being a Liberal is having no shame and no morals and never having to say you are sorry.

....the people of Detroit voted for this.

They thought they were the smartest people in the room and there was no reasoning with the Detroit voter of old.

And now we have an entire nation of Detroit voters. :)

They don’t believe it was them. Or their policies!

It’s the fault of the “White Flight” - all the ‘rich’ white people who trashed the city on their way out - to go live, high on the hog, in the suburbs with all their wealth that they ‘stole’ from the po folks in Deetroit.

They will NEVER acknowledge that it was corrupt, liberal polititians and a citizenry who just didn’t care to keep up a great city.

To be fair, there are many reasons why Detroit failed. Don’t forget NAFTA’s impact on our industry.

Thank you for speaking the truth. Why are we so afraid of saying Blacks destroy city governments? They are incompetent, unethical, and greedy. It’s been proven over and over and over. Someone needs to write a book on the Black destruction of America. How can we fix a problem if we won’t call it like it is? Now the question is can the White man fix the Black culture and teach them to be good citizens or do Blacks have to address the weakness in their culture and fix it. My first suggestion is to phase out “entitlement programs.” Good starting point.

I do offer my apologies to Dr. Ben, Col.West, Alan Keyes and many more honorable Black men who escaped the Plantation mentality. I wish they would turn all their effort back to the Plantation and help straighten out this enormous problem. I think all of these men would be excellent Presidential candidates and hopefully one of them will consider 2016? Now you may call me on my statement that Blacks have notoriously destroyed city governments so how could I endorse these black men for President? It’s integrity and character not skin color that qualifies a man for public office and so far most of the black public officials are still living on the Plantation.

Sorry. It has been MY observation that liberals are never ashamed of anything, i.e., Bill Clinton still idolized, the two NY perverts running for office after resigning previously, and showing promising poll numbers, too; etc., etc.

Very good point. The producers left because they had the means to do so and the takers stayed. When the majority of a population are takers, this result is inevitable.

The governor is a Republican. Does anyone know if he sounded any alarms, took any steps to correct the problem? Or did he just go along happy to be in office? For discussion...

Libs are idiots. Liberalism by definition is escape from the Constitution.

They have what they have due to the Constitution yet attack it day after day.

Conservatives by definition stand by the Constitution.

Nuff Said

Republicans (conservatives, actually) try to fix problems and screw-ups, so the RATs can get back to trough and pervert things again.

Liberal-progressive-marxists destroyed Detroit, and they know it, because that was their goal from day one. There can be NO middle class or privately owned manufacturing sector in a communist society. All of the corrupt politicians, lawmakers, union bosses, progressive citizens, and business cronies (aka: usefuel idiots), fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Even Joe Stalin would be impressed if he were still alive.

Seriously, that’s the left’s excuse? How racist! Almost saying only white people bring prosperity.

Used to work with a Canadian for a Detroit based corporation. He would commute from Windsor every day. When he first got the job, he had bought a home and moved into Detroit. They lasted about 1 month and got the heck out. Moved back to Windsor. It was just too dangerous. They thought it would be similar to Windsor.

Detroiters don’t want no crackas messing with the Jewels of Detroit. Heck City Council doesn’t even want a guy of Mayor Bing’s capabilities to help.

Nope. It’s the Democrat party. Take the Democrat party out of the equation, leave the other variables the same, and see what you get. The Democrat party allows the stupidity to be implemented. Without the Democrat party, all those stupid liberal ideas just remain ideas. The only was to bring Detroit back is to dismantle the Democrat party.
