“Whatever he says his motives were, Scott Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image that the poor people in this city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods,” and with that, the Baltimore Sun kicked a gift horse right in the mouth.
Scott Pressler a Trump supporter was driven to action by the feud between Trump and Elijah Cummings. Scott gather over 170 non-political volunteers and cleaned up a section of the decrepit West Baltimore.
Instead of getting thanks the local paper ripped him for it, which again exposes the symbiotic relationship between the Dems and the media. The Sun wrote:
“It made for good photos, compelling videos and catchy Twitter hashtags. A group of conservatives rolled their pickup trucks into one of West Baltimore’s most impoverished neighborhoods Monday for a cleanup day.
Loaded down with trash bags and shovels, they cleared alleyways of old tires, food containers, paper and other debris. They pulled up weeds and cut away overgrown grass. The group posted before and after pictures on social media showing their progress.
The effort was organized by pro-Trump activist Scott Presler. He claimed the event was not political.
Yes, he was inspired to come by tweets from President Donald Trump describing the area, represented by U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, as a “rodent infested mess.” But the visit wasn’t about showing support or animosity for either man, he said. Call us skeptical.”
They go on bashing Scott until they make a startling admission:
“Whatever he says his motives were, Mr. Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image of our failing urban cores.
That the poor people in this dilapidated city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods and all the public officials around them have failed as well. The bureaucratic, all-talk Democrats strike again.
If a crowd of volunteers could clean up 12 tons of trash in 12 hours, how incompetent and helpless must Baltimoreans be if they can’t manage it in decades, right?”
Correct. The message is not political but economic – what in hell are the Dems doing in these communities?
