Skip to comments.Detroit Mayoral Candidate Says City's Plight Is Part Of A Conspiracy
Posted on 07/24/2013 12:45:11 AM PDT by Impala64ssa
In the city of Detroit, 60 percent of children reportedly live in poverty, 40 percent of the streetlights don't work, police take about an hour to respond to any call, it filed for bankruptcy protection last week, and, according to mayoral candidate Tom Barrow, it's all a lie. "Chess moves are thought way in advance," Barrow tells the local ABC affiliate WXYZ. Barrow was visiting the WXYZ studio to introduce himself to the public that may not know who he is, for a get-to-know-the-candidate-who-really-believes-all-of-your-city's-problems-are-entirely-made-up segment. "These are really big claims you're making...the way you're talking, these problems are all made up," WXYZ anchor JoAnne Purtan says, implying she wants Barrow to definitively state for-the-record that he believes Detroit is in its current position just so Gov. Snyder, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, Mayor Dave Bing and write-in candidate Mike Duggan can sit down for a drink in the near-future and share a good laugh about the whole thing. "They are," Barrow replies. To bring you up sort-of up to speed on Barrow: This is his fourth go-around at running for the mayor's seat in the past 30-or-so years. He's an accountant who, in 1994, was convicted of bank fraud, tax evasion and filing false tax returns; served 13 months of a near two-year sentence, and has since repeatedly tried to get the conviction overturned.

Hey Detroit, sure why not elect another corrupt black nut-case?
I mean, hey it’s worked so well for you for so long.
“He’s an accountant who, in 1994, was convicted of bank fraud, tax evasion and filing false tax returns...”
In other words, anywhere he goes, he’d make a perfect mayor, governor, senator, or congressman.
They ARE the government. Didn’t you get the Icke memo on ZOG?
You left out “President”.
Detroiters! Snap out of it, grow up and stop with the Jewish UFOs - start tackling the problem. Next thing you know they will say Elvis’ ghost convinced Grouch Marx's ghost to foist this conspiracy on the city.
You’re absolutely correct - he’d make a PERFECT president.
Hes an accountant who, in 1994, was convicted of bank fraud, tax evasion and filing false tax returns
All resume enhancers as a democrat.
Give it up Mr.Barrow you are a whiner and a loser.
And who is Kevyn Orr? Is Kevyn a myn’s name?
Things used to be so much less confusing...
What is this? A real book?

They’ve made what was once the most prosperous city in the world, North Haiti.
What do you know about that website?
I remember growing up in the ‘60s and thinking Detroit was where they made Chevys, and Denny McClain pitched for the Tigers, and Mitch Ryder made records. And now I find the place is a nothing but a foul, ancient toilet that swirls but can’t quite flush because the turds are too big and packed too tightly.
I also grew up in Detroit and am in full agreement with you.
I am happy that I grew up there at that time.
The “leadership” are certainly one, unified BM that won’t go down.
No... it’s Elvis flying his Halliburton-manufactured spacecraft
from his base on Jupiter. Elvis used mind control to cause Detroiters to grind down their city to the turd-world hellhole it is today for two reasons:
1) He never liked Motown music, and
Get ready for it.....
2) He hates black people.
“Hes an accountant who, in 1994, was convicted of bank fraud, tax evasion and filing false tax returns...
In other words, anywhere he goes, hed make a perfect mayor, governor, senator, or congressman.”
Why is this man not already in Washington? His resume is far better than Obammys.
My daughter was at a graduation party in a very nice subdivision near Tecumseh, Michigan. Her dingbat aunt lives there because as a good demoncrap, said auntie would never consider living in Detoilet with the other demoncraps. At the dinner table was the UAW commie lib grandfather of the honoree who posited that the takeover of Detoilet was done on behalf of the Republicans. Grandpa lives in West Branch (about 150 miles from Detoilet) since retirement and he would never consider moving to big D to be with his demoncrap homies either. Grandpa posited that the Republicans were going to move all the africanhyphenamerican democraps out of Detroit because they know it controls Michigan and they want it for themselves. Daughter then told him she’d been at a MIaGOP meeting just recently, and the plan was to move all the ahyphena demoncraps to the West Branch area.
A conspiracy in a conspiracy.

And is probably very wealthy and has millions in the bank for some strange reason despite being paid a regular civil servant’s wages. Hmmm i wonder how he could do that when the city is going bankrupt. I wonder...
Now it's 700,000 fine citizens stuck in Detroit; stuck in the bankruptcy because they could not do for themselves and they have to wait for the man to come do for them.
Isn’t it great to take no responsibility for your actions? These people probably have great self-esteem; any shortcoming on their part is simply chalked up to a “white conspiracy”.
I cant figure this. Are these people crooked, insane, or just in extreme denial?
"We never thought we'd run out of money but didn't count on running out of white people. Come back!"
He did have one heckuva season in '68 though (even if he was out-shone in The Series by Bob Gibson and Mickey Lolich).
The article is much on the “about the fall” in the sense of trying to learn the lessons of the cause, but more the current state of the failed utopian policies.
It’s too bad Dave Bing won’t run again. He’s about the best (or least destructive) Mayor the city has had since Roman Gribbs.
