Democratic Race Baiting 101 Baltimore Edition
Yesterday as I was driving around Baltimore City, I noticed these yellow yard signs plastered everywhere reading "VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATS". Normally a campaign sign would say vote for the particular candidate not the political party. This is where it gets "interesting". I had to take care of so some business in Baltimore County that day as well. So as I was driving around Towson, Lutherville, Parkville, Carney etc, there were political campaign signs for people running for the respected public offices. What I noticed what was missing were those "VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATS" signs that were plastered all over Baltimore City. So I started thinking, how could this be possible? I would assume that the Maryland Democratic Party and the Brown campaign would want people in Baltimore County to "VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATS" also right? The only logical conclusion is that these signs were placed in predominately black neighborhoods. because they know they need a strong turn out from the two biggest black jurisdictions in Maryland which are Baltimore City and Prince Georges County. Of course Maryland Democratic leaders would deny this is an attempt at race baiting, but I know what they would say if the Maryland Republican Party or Larry Hogan was to place signs all over Republican strongholds on the Eastern Shore and Arundel Country which have mostly white residents reading "VOTE FOR THE REPUBLICANS". I would like to ask the person or persons who came up with the "VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATS" signs one question. That question would be "WHY vote for the Democrats"? What, just vote for the whole party, because the sign says to do so? Barack Obama came to Maryland the other day to campaign for Anthony Brown at a rally in Upper Marlboro. Even Big O can't help Anthony Brown, people mostly black started to leave as Obama was still speaking. If the first bi racial president being passed off as black can't help Anthony Brown, it might mean that all the race baiting political signs won't be able to help him either.
