Almost everything in this world can be divided into two spheres: the image the public sees, and the underlying reality. Sometimes they’re the same. Mother Teresa was a great humanitarian, a Godly woman free of any scandal.

Sometimes they’re not the same at all.

Bernie Madoff, contrary to his early reputation which he shamelessly exploited, was not an honorable, highly successful investment manager worthy of respect. In actual fact he was a fraudster and a scoundrel who was sentenced to ten years in prison for embezzlement. 

When the Democratic Party is examined from this perspective, especially in relation to the Black community, it comes out much closer to the inky slime of Bernie Madoff than it does the sanctity of Mother Teresa.

The Democratic Party was associated with the Ku Klux Klan and segregation for most of the 20th Century. But in the 1960s it made a hard turn to the left. It currently claims to act in the best interests of the Black community in a noble battle against racism and White Supremacy.  But in example after example the Democratic party instead causes great damage and permanent harm to these same people that it claims to represent. The case against the Democratic Party is overwhelming. 

Defund the Police may have been the most counterproductive campaign in American political history. Its stated purpose was to save and protect Black lives from violent suppression in the United States. Yet Defund the Police is soaked in the blood of Black Americans. Murder rates have shot up over 30 percent since 2020 when Defund took hold in our cities. Many experts believe the movement has directly and undeniably caused the unnecessary deaths of thousands of young people of color.

New York Mayor Eric Adams has said it best: “If Black lives matter, then the thousands of people I saw on the street when [George] Floyd was murdered should be on the streets right now stating that the lives of these Black children that are dying every night matter,” Adams said. “We can’t be hypocrites.”

The increase in the murder rate has been especially alarming in large metropolitan areas. Los Angeles provides a stinging example.  In that politically liberal city, the murder rate increased 44.9 percent between 2019 and 2021. Chicago has seen a 37 percent increase in the murder rate over the same period of time.   

The Wall Street Journal editorial board concluded, “No one factor explains this criminal surge. But it’s no coincidence that the bloodshed increased as cities slashed police budgets, progressive prosecutors demanded leniency and eliminated bail for criminals, and jails and prisons released thousands of lawbreakers amid the Covid-19 outbreak.”

Education provides another example of woke, liberal programs causing great harm to those they claim to want to help.
