In her Opening Statement last night, Judge Jeanine Pirro said that Democratic Party-inspired government support for the last century has become the most abusive form of "suppression and oppression" in inner cities.
"It is keeping African Americans and minority communities from attaining not only the American Dream, but a normal safe, secure and productive life," Judge Jeanine said. "A supposed well-intentioned support system is chaining our minority communities to an inter-generational cycle of poverty, dependency and depression."
She pointed out that Democrat-run cities have consistently failed in this regard, with rising murder rates and plummeting job and education opportunities.
"Folks, if something just doesn’t work time after time, over and over, what does it tell you? Should you keep going with it? Should you do it again?"
Watch Judge Jeanine's powerful Opening Statement above and read a full transcript below.
Democrat-inspired government support for the last century has become the most abusive form of suppression and oppression in our inner cities. It is keeping African Americans and minority communities from attaining not only the American Dream, but a normal safe, secure and productive life. A supposed well-intentioned support system is chaining our minority communities to an inter-generational cycle of poverty, dependency and depression.
Now I have spent more than three decades in the criminal justice system, watching crime, drugs and gangs ravage our inner cities - drawing no distinction between children, families and the elderly. But I have never heard anyone, especially someone running for office, have the audacity, the tenacity to turn a paradigm upside down the way Donald Trump did this week.
Donald Trump: “It is time for our society to address some honest and very different truths. The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African American community. Democratic crime policies, education policies and economic policies have produced only more crime, more broken homes and more poverty.”
Is he right? Let’s take a look.
When Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk about the racial divide, they neglect to talk about the fact that 58% of young African Americans do not have jobs, that they are worse off since an African American president took office. So what makes anyone think they can make things better under the same policies?
When Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk about the economic divide in this country, what have they done about it? Other than Hillary Clinton magically going from dead broke to being worth more than a hundred million dollars (that she’ll admit to) without a business, a company, or anything other than a so called not-for-profit corporation?
While Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk about the needed conversations between the minority community and our law enforcement officers, they do so to the background chant "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now." More police are targeted and killed than ever before. While Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk about the poor and the oppressed, the anarchists - the Black Lives Matter and the Occupy Wall Street group - burn down neighborhoods where the only ones suffering are African American mom and pop shops and African American small business owners.
And while they pontificate on the quality of justice for the minority communities - like Ferguson and Baltimore - juries, judges and even their own department of justice outright reject their make-believe, incendiary and divisive narrative.
And in case you haven’t noticed gun crimes against African Americans only matter if law enforcement is involved. African American deaths even of children on playgrounds on the south side of Chicago just don’t get the same outrage.
When this duo talk about the quality education that young African American and minority children need to compete, they talk force an education bureaucracy and unions that support them and sell slick ads as children in those communities fail. No talk of the few children lucky enough to have a voucher system or school choice, that allows them to break the bonds and soar to success.
Take a look at these cities populated by the minority community where murders are on the rise, where poverty is the norm, where guns are seen as the only form of protection, crime as the only way out, where hope is nonexistent, and ask yourselves: Who is running these cities? Democrats. Take a look at those numbers.
Folks, if something just doesn’t work time after time, over and over, what does it tell you? Should you keep going with it? Should you do it again?
You know what, I can’t say it any better than he can:
Donald Trump: “What the hell do you have to lose?"
