On April 29, the black violence/looting/rioting/uprising/revolution in 65 percent black Baltimore and the inability of the primary black elected or appointed officials to maintain control of the city requires those white fans of the Orioles to stay away from the stadium... yes, a Major League Baseball (MLB) game will be played in front of no fans, because the government in Baltimore and Maryland can't guarantee the safety - police failed to answer more than 50 calls of one business owner on April 27 - of the white fans entering the war zone that is 65 percent black Baltimore. [White Sox-O's postponed; tomorrow closed to fans: Unrest in Baltimore also causes weekend series against Rays to be moved to Tampa Bay, Orioles.mlb.com, 4-28-15]:
Due to the ongoing riots and protests in the city of Baltimore, the Orioles-White Sox game on Wednesday has been rescheduled for 2:05 p.m. ET and will be closed to the public. In addition, this weekend's games against the Rays, originally scheduled to be played at Camden Yards, have been moved to Tampa Bay.
Both Monday's and Tuesday's games against Chicago were postponed due to safety concerns in the downtown Baltimore area, as the city is currently in a state of emergency and is receiving assistance from the National Guard in an attempt to restore order.
The two games will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader at Oriole Park on Thursday, May 28, starting at 4:05 p.m.Who would have thought a baseball game could be delayed or cancelled because of not only inclement weather, but the inability of black elected officials to control a black population rioting/looting/burning a 65 percent black city?
And to think Baltimore was once the city birthing the United States National Anthem, when Francis Scott Key saw the American flag still flying over Fort McHenry.
Does it even make sense for the American flag to fly in Baltimore anymore, when the black elected officials have basically ceded control of the city to the black mob? Of course, back in 2012, massive black-on-white violence on St. Patrick's Day in the Inner Harbor was covered up by the majority black police, but who's keeping track of such pesky details...?
Recall the words of black Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who gave the black looters/rioters/revolutionaries "space to destroy" on April 25 (trapping white Orioles fans in Camden Yards in the process):
“I made it very clear that I work with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech,” Rawlings-Blake said. “It’s a very delicate balancing act. Because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate.”
Responding to criticism that his department acted too slowly to riots, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts emphatically said that: "Yes, we were prepared." The decision not to move faster was related to the fact that many rioters were as young as 14 or 15, and the community did not want to see police use force on teens. "They're old enough to know better, they're old enough to know not to do those things, they're old enough to be accountable, but they're still kids, unfortunately. So we had to take that into account while we were out there."Black "kids"... who actions caused an"ongoing public safety" issue in 65 percent black Baltimore on April 25, trapping white Orioles fans in Camden Yards; Black "kids" whose destruction of Baltimore and looting/rioting/arson in the city is requiring not only massive police and National Guard presence, but a baseball game to be played in an empty stadium... because the almost entirely black elected and appointed city officials in Baltimore can't guarantee the safety of white fans entering a city black looters/rioters/revolutionaries hold hostage...
This is the state of an "American" city in 2015, one where the almost entirely black government has failed in its duty to protect private property and the general welfare of its tax-producing citizens, instead turning the city over to black rioters ("kids," as the black Baltimore Police Commissioner dubbed them) who only needed "space to destroy."
And those black kids destroying private property and ensuring avenues of wealth creation are forever closed with the tightening of the Visible Black Hand of Economics on the city have the black Baltimore City Council President on their side too. [Baltimore City Council President Apologizes to Rioters, The Daily Beast, 4-28-15]:
The president of the Baltimore City Council apologized for calling rioters “thugs” at a press conference Tuesday, calling those responsible for the violence “misdirected” youths. Standing side-by-side with self-proclaimed gang members, Jack Young said that gang members stood in front of stores to prevent looting and retracted claims that gang members were targeting the Baltimore police. “We are all Baltimoreans,” Young said. Almost 200 people were arrested during Monday night’s riots. At least 144 vehicles and 15 buildings were burned, according to the mayor’s office. The notorious Bloods and Crips have agreed to join together and protest police.
Land of the Free/Home of the Brave?
Sorry Francis Scott Key, only 201 years after you wrote those words, the American flag no longer flies over 65 percent black Baltimore, because the black elected and appointed officials have all but sided with the black looters/rioters/revolutionaries/arsonists.
After all, they're just black kids!
