Liberal Pundit: Democrats Not to Blame For Poverty in Cities They’ve Run For Years!

For someone who claims to be a professor, liberal commentator Marc Lamont Hill isn’t very smart. In an appearance on CNN this week, Hill argued that Democrats aren’t responsible for the poverty in the cities they have run exclusively for generations.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who was on in the same segment was stunned by Hill’s assertion.

NewsBusters reported:

Lamont Hill: Just Because Poor Cities Are Run by Democrats, Doesn’t Mean Democrats Are to Blame

After Cuomo brought up a new ABC News/WSJ poll that predicted only one percent of blacks would vote for Trump, he asked Bongino why Trump was unable to make the case to blacks that their Democrat-run communities would only keep them in poverty. Bongino responded:

DAN BONGINO: Yeah, you know, Chris, this is one of the great mysteries of my life. If I was granted omnipotence by the Lord tomorrow to change one thing, it would be to be able to walk into the black community and largely in inner cities and say, please, look at what’s happening here. I mean, these communities have been ruled monopolistically by far left big government liberals for decades. In some cases since the ’20s and ’30s. These communities have been driven into the ground. I mean, you don’t have to be a scientist to look at the evidence, the correlational evidence right in front of you. Liberalism correlates with poverty and high crime every single place it’s been tried. Yet, you have some members of the black community which support the democratic party, which continues to bankrupt them.

Marc Lamont Hill took offense to that, wincing then claiming there was “[N]othing far left about Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia,” at which Bongino, flabbergasted, asked, “What?”

Lamont Hill explained further, but his answer didn’t really clarify who was responsible for these cities being in poverty:

LAMONT HILL: I’m going to tell you. They’re democratic machines but they’re not far left. Michael Nutter was the mayor of Philadelphia. No one would call him far left. I think that’s a bit extreme. It’s not exactly Cuba there. The other piece of, this and you said you’re not a scientist and I’m glad you said that. There’s a difference between correlation and causality.

I agree, there’s a connection between these very poor places and democratic machines, but being democrat doesn’t cause you to be poor, being liberal doesn’t cause you to be poor. There’s a bunch of top-down policies that enable this to happen. In a place like Ferguson, for example, the flight of jobs is far more important, the destruction of public housing is far more influential than who’s the city councilman or who’s the mayor. Although that’s not a black majority. Same thing in Baltimore. Again, we need a new way out, but the new way out isn’t to just crack down on Democrats and bring Republicans in. We need new policies that bring in jobs, that bring in investment, and that change the relationship between police and community. That’s not a partisan issue.

You can’t have a reasonable debate with someone like Hill because he’s not dealing in reality.

    added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!
