Default TV's Glenn Beck is taking aim at Detroit, comparing our city to Hiroshima

Seen this on TV today thought some people here would like to see it if they missed it...

TV's Glenn Beck is taking aim at Detroit, comparing our city to Hiroshima.

He says in part, "Democrats have been in power for Detroit for over 50 years, no no Mr. Beck, it was the Big 3 auto corporations that ruled Detroit, that's what killed Motown."

"Thatís Hiroshima now, let me show you another city, here's a city that when Hiroshima looked like it did in itís destruction, this city looked like this, it was thriving. Itís Detroit, Michigan, but take a look at Detroit today. One city embraced the free market system and the entrepreneurial spirit, the other embraced progressive policies and corrupt government and unions and companies that were not allowed to fail and they should have failed because they stunk on ice."

I was looking for that video earlier. Pretty much sums it up. Thanks for sharing, although it's depressing.

No anger at all. You see things how you want, not as they are. Simple as that.

What is a fact? Several opinions were presented, so I'm not sure which one you're saying is a fact.

Democrats killed detroit;
Big 3 killed detroit;
Rockstar is a dumbass because he lives in Taylor.

BTW, the video is a pretty good watch.

Detroit is a shit hole,because the people of detroit allow it to turn in to a shit hole.

It is like a yard, if you dont cut the grass, it will fill up with weeds,rats,bugs,garbage.

All you have to do is look around, the neighbor hoods that are in trouble, are because the people living there let it happen.

When i got hurt and lost my Job, I lost everything, but I didnt loose my pride.

I still have a nice yard, nice house, and we take care of it,why Because you never give up.

Go over 3 miles and parts of Mt Clemens look like Detroit, why because those people dont care,there are parts of Clinton township that are turning into detroit. The problem is people hit a ruff spot and they just give up and want people to feel sorry for them and get pissed when people point out that they are letting there neighbor hood go to hell.

I talked to a cop just last night from clinton township about this, because someone left a car in frt of my house for 3 days, and it had wrong plates on it.(he ran the temp tag,while he was talking to me) He told me he is seeing it more and more,so he had it towed. He said that if you let these people get away with it, it is like cockroach's they will never go away

Hiroshima in its destruction was probably still nicer than Detroit is today. Safer too. I think he over estimated how many people actually graduate from Detroit schools also.

The pics he used didnt even show how bad the city really is.

I didn't and don't watch Beck, but he also apparently plagiarized the idea.

http://yourbadneighbor.posterous.com...r-the-bomb-was

was posted almost a year ago - and it seems that it must have finally popped up to the top of Digg, Reddit, or Stumbleupon for either Beck, or one of his staffers.


in summary, yes Detroit is a shithole - largely a result of the Left and the 50 years of corruption. and I have not yet ever known of someone from taylortuckey that had anything redeeming about them. (one could infer that anyone from that region that had a redeeming quality was not willing to divulge that they were from there... but that may be a stretch)
