Has Liberal Control Failed Urban America?

Has Liberal Control Failed Urban America?

Here’s the Scoop

In a recent and impassioned opinion piece, Sen. Tim Scott made his case: progressive policies have failed urban America, particularly the African-American community.

Drawing attention to cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, Scott underlined how these urban areas, dominated by liberal policies, have not lived up to the promises made to their residents.

Citing disturbing statistics like high black unemployment rates in Chicago and significant educational underachievement in Baltimore, Scott argues that liberal control is doing more harm than good.

Beyond policy, Sen. Scott took aim at the broader cultural narrative pushed by progressives.

He expressed concern over the increasing rejection of individual responsibility, an embrace of victimhood culture, and a shift away from emphasizing the value of the intact two-parent family.

Addressing pointedly, he noted that while the black family survived some of the darkest periods in American history, its structure has been severely impacted by modern liberal policies and shifts in cultural values.

The senator didn’t hold back on his critique of top Democrats, accusing them of using racial division as a tool for political advantage and distracting from their own policy failures.

Scott emphasized that freedom and prosperity in America depend on individual responsibility, a value he feels is under siege.

Scott’s piece has ignited a flurry of responses and debates across the nation. Now, it’s your turn to weigh in. Has the progressive hold over urban America led to its decline, or are there other factors at play?

    Every major city in America that has been controlled by democrats for years is having huge problems Evan in primarily red states. Their policies on crime, family’s, individual responsibility, wasted taxpayer money on boondoggles, courts, policing,…there seems to be no logic or common sense. Typically the ones who suffer the most from their egregious policies are minorities whom they claim they are helping.

    I just cannot figure out, why Democrats don’t realize that almost every negative thing, that has happened to “their party” – was CAUSED by the Democratic party! From struggles with civil rights, to the fact that THEY started the KKK and have a lot stronger ties to racism! It’s not surprising that the most avowed bigots in the government, (IE: Tlaib, Omar, AOC, Waters, etc) are ALL Demonrats. I DON’T blame them – I blame the morons that routinely elect them to office! …sigh…
