Allen West: Democrat Policies Destroying Inner Cities For 40 Years
Breitbart - Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said poverty, lack of quality education, and the breakdown of the family are consequences of the Democrats’ inner-city policies that have created conditions which sparked riots all over the country, like the recent unrest caused by the death of Freddy Gray while in police custody.
West said, “Look, let’s be very honest, most of these inner cities have been under Democratic control for quite some time. So let’s start looking at the policies they have instituted there over the past 40 to 50 years.”
Blog Author's Comments - Allen West is exactly right, and he's not alone in saying so either. In fact in large part we can thank the 'Great Society' and liberal policies for the destruction of many families and the massive inner city problems we have today. And the people living in those inner cities keep voting for those in the Democratic Party. One would think that eventually many living in poverty, surrounded by crime and allowing the government to care for them would want to help themselves. But this continues decade after decade. Since Obama has been the president I think black crime has gotten worse along with black unemployment.
