So they really are going to surrender and tear down sections of Detroit By Kevin Coach Collins Last June this site reported the Obama Administration was in discussions with Mayor Dave Bing of Detroit to tear down large sections of his City. In a clear admission fifty years of Democrat rule had ruined the once great city, surrendering large sections of Detroit to the wrecking ball is actually being planned. Liberal Democrats have spoken the unspeakable: "Forget about trying, lets tear it down." Ripping down sections of Detroit will reap some very clear benefits for Obama and his Party. It will make Democrat Mayor Dave Bing look like he is actually governing and Democrats in surrounding districts will get a big influx of Black rubberstamp voters to help them hold on.
Need shovel ready jobs Tear down Detroit
The teardown for votes scheme has now taken a big jump forward with this weeks announcement by Mayor Bing that he "absolutely" intends to relocate residents from desolate neighborhoods and is bracing for inevitable legal challenges when he unveils his downsizing plan.
Thats forced relocations! as the liberal media would say if Bing and Obama were Republicans or even White Democrats.
But of course...

Its not a surrender, its the right thing to do. People from both parties could learn a thing or two from Dave Bing.
The population in Detroit has been declining. The resulting vacant buildings are squatted in, vandalized and/or used as crack houses. That’s a nightmare for law enforcement. Tear down the buildings and those activities will no longer have homes.
Okay, it was my impression that they’d been doing that already.
This reminds me of the 1960’s Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC, pronounced “snick”) motto, “Urban renewal means negro removal.”
Actually, if you wanted to make this interesting...let the city use the court system and seize property as no taxes are filed or ownership is declared null. Use some stimulus money have 500 guys hired with dozers, trucks and shovels...and start tearing down various areas. Then bring in a crew with seedlings and trees. Over ten years...they might actually recover fifty percent of the city. The catch here is that no one should be allowed to offer money to the city for thirty years for this recovered property...and let the forest start to show maturity.
why tear it down? Get the Rev Jackson and Sharpton there for a few days.....have some young girl trump up charges she was impregnated by Jackson and then have her douse herself with dog and pig feces and the resulting fray will burn Detroit all on its own. Detroit has proven in the past it is a city willing to burn. I think Obamas prior pedigree of being a community agitation coordinator would work well in this regard.
It certainly feels like the sixties. I’m getting deja vu all over again.
“We had to destroy the village to save it.”
“President Obama, tear down this city!”
This is an incredibly good idea.
I was thinking SAC, or the Eight United States Army Air Force. Who's gonna play the role of the Trümmerfrauen?
There’s a website out there that shows photos of what’s happened to Detroit.
Unless we are prepared to go to war with Canada, that may not work. Of course there is the West Bank/Gaza model.
Its not a bad idea at all. And, it will allow the Dems to do what they’ve always (secretly) dreamed of: create large estates, give them to party leaders (with associated titles like Lord, Duke, etc), and allocate serfs to work the land. The way things are going, Detroit will soon look like Medieval France.
Edward L. McNeil, Special Assistant to Albert Garrett, President of Michigan Council 25 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO, issued the following statement:
"Mayor Dave Bing gratuitously insulted City of Detroit workers and their Unions in his news conference of February 25, 2010," stated McNeil. "In a futile effort to disparage our stance at the bargaining table, he has asserted that we can't read, add, or comprehend. That is an outright lie on the Mayor's part. Any rational person recognizes that it is possible for people who can read, add, and comprehend to disagree with Dave Bing . . . rant continued here
We wouldn't even have to pay 'em(!)
The 40-year result of LBJ’s “Great Society”.
i have been saying this for years....there are sections of detroit where only 1 or 2 houses stand where a neighborhood used to be....i would have prisoners renovate houses in the “good” area’s, and relocate these residents to the renovated house free of charge. I would then not charge them taxes of the house as long as they live as an incentive to move. Bulldoze the area, disconnect all services, tear up the streets, and rent the area out to local farmers.....
Yeah, I can see how Canada might consider it a hostile action.
People should read up on Dave Bing. He’s a democrat but he’s no Barack Obama. He fires union workers who don’t bother to show up for work and refuses to deduct union dues from some city worker’s paychecks.
He’s a self made millionaire who could have turned his back on the city and walked away. Instead he took what must be one of the hardest jobs in the world and started making some tough choices.
I wish the city had control of the schools so he could do what needs to be done there.
...and/or ceding it to Canada.
Do you really think Canada would take it? Well, it's worth a try...
“In a clear admission fifty years of Democrat rule had ruined the once great city,”
....I’d say it was in the 70s when black Democrats legally siezed power that the downhill slide began...same things started happening in urban areas across the country...once great cities have gone bad.
...I have no confidence in black Democrat governance, but if Bing can pull this off, I’ll tip my hat to him.
Hey it's an improvement. :)
Dave Bing isn’t pretending to govern in Detroit, he’s making hard but good decisions.
Just cause he has a D behind his name doesn’t mean he’s only in it for himself. He loves the City of Detroit. Give him a chance.
Doesnt' mean that was wrong.
Rents have to go up and people have to be forced to pay for nicer places to live. Otherwise, they end up living in rat warren slums filled with crime, disease and an incredible accident rate.
If the SNCC had had its way all black people would now be living in places that look like Detroit.
They aren't, so there. Screw SNCC and it's merry band of idiots.
It will certainly be a monument to the efficacy of Democratic industrial & economic policies.
If only a Republican politician would state the same. Dream-on.
I wonder if the Brit's would take it back?
Idiotic (more politely, ill-conceived and poorly administered) government policies created urban blight, so the solution must naturally be more ill-conceived and sure-to-be poorly administered government programs. I love it. The solution for bad government policies is more bad government policies.
That’s the best idea I’ve heard yet.
I’ve often said that in 10 to 20 years, the majority of jobs left in Michigan would be hunting and fishing guides.
Sounds like a perfect spot for a new theme park- “Liberal Land”
Imagine the attractions:
A new roller coaster called “the obamaconomy” - it’s a thrill and all downhill
Labor Union Land- where you wait for hours to get in while one hard hat holds a flag, another holds a radio, and two dozen more stand just inside leaning on shovels and talking
Healthcare Land- spin the wheel and see if yo get a life saving operation or a pain pill- only people ages between 14 and 50 can play
There ya go- offer up Detroit as an al Qaeda/Hamas training range
There’s a company buying up whole blocks at bargain-basement prices, and planning to convert the land to commercial urban farming use. Urban un-growth.
‘This reminds me of the 1960s Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC, pronounced snick) motto, Urban renewal means negro removal.’
If you move them where will you put them? Send them to Mississippi? Denmark? Liberia? Where?
A good farmer plows down at the end of the season to keep parasites from multiplying.
Everyone here that wants those residents as your next door neighbor, please raise your hand.
Steven Crowder (from PJTV) goes ghetto to Detroit. He gives you an up close and personal tour of this thriving metropolis.
You are asking the wrong person. I am more or less as strongly opposed to “urban renewal” as the idiotic policies that make it seem desirable. The same idiots that blighted the cities now want to “save” them.
Charge admission and bill it as a house of horrors.
lead paint chips, glass, nails, asbestos, and all those other toxins in that urban soil should make swell fertilizer, ya think?
“Government Arbeit Macht Frei”
Don’t they know they need Robocop first? They’re doing it wrong.
Don’t you dare cede it to Canada! Good heavens man, we have enough socialist/commies up here, we don’t need more!
Burn it down I say, burn it down:)
So, they remove the stragglers from the destroyed neighborhoods and move them to a predetermined location but put them into what? A tent or build them a new house?
