Detroit Voters Elect Duggan Mayor of Broke City
ABC ^

Posted on 11/06/2013 6:25:12 AM PST by chessplayer

A former medical center chief defeated a county sheriff to become the next mayor of financially troubled Detroit, though the job holds little power while the city is being run by a state-appointed emergency manager.

MSNBC's Madcow Maddow said the election was fake and that there is no democracy in Detroit because a white guy won.

Detroit should put Kwame back in charge. He can run things from prison.

She is both an idiot and totally uninformed. I spoke to a black minister in Detroit last week and he told me that Duggan would win. He also predicted that Duggan would win the primary election on a write in vote.

That said, Duggan is the first white Mayor since 1973. He is also a Democrat.

Watching with interest. Duggan ran on promises to drive the state interlopers out of their city and immediately after winning declared that he planned to work with them.

She should see it as a good thing - if and when Detroit finally goes under they’ll have a white guy to blame.

Ah. The old, ‘Whitey’s Fault’ card is played! That took about a minute after the polls closed, LOL!

So predictable. These people WANT utter destruction to come to America. And you know what? Thanks to the weak-kneed, lmp-d*cked RINOs, they’re doing one helluva job!

Agreed, it was an expected win for anyone who paid attention.

The black nationalist attitudes that have thrived in Detroit for all these years are beginning to collapse. Its one of the reasons that Kwame Kenyatta left office and went to Mobile Alabama where the mayor is a black nationalist.

So when they get desperate they will vote for the white guy but only if he’s in democrat clothing. Good luck with fixing ‘DeTerloit’. An albino ‘rat is still a ‘rat.

I wondered what happened to him. He will be right at home in Atlanta.

All lesbians and homosexuals have a serious problem producing intelligent thought. Their brains are defective.

Win? He didn’t win! He’s the guy with a garden hose sent to save a blazing building. Sounds like punishment for some crime.

Right this way, Reichsadmiral - er, I mean Reichsfuhrer. We just need your signature on this one little document...

Reading a little bit about this election, I def would have voted for Duggan over the other guy.

Detroit’s not going anywhere.

While it has a boatload of problems, it also has young, vibrant professionals moving in who are passionate about the city. A number of neat bars and restaurants have popped up. Neighborhoods that had fallen into ruins are making a comeback, and Dan Gilbert is investing megabucks into the place.

The same way there’s no democracy in the US since a black guy won?

I see it as an ideal testbed for ways to fix America. Its got every problem the rest of the country has on a small scale.

New Black Panther leader and muckraker Malik Shabazz endorsed Duggan early on in the race

He’s different than the better known Malik Shabazz. He’s mostly a dumbass but not nearly as militant (No uniform etc).

The fact that about half of Detroit’s adults are functionally illiterate means Detroit is not going to improve anytime soon.

Not anymore. They tossed the Black Dem Mayor of Mobile for a White Republican back in August.

I had his locale wrong. Kenyatta headed for Jackson Mississippi. The new mayor of Jackson (Chokwe Lumumba) is the one who wants to create a black nation. He was born in Detroit BTW.

Ah, OK. Yes, the new Jackson Mayor is a horror. He’ll help drive out the remaining White residents of Jackson just like that old Communist Coleman Young did in Detroit.

I’ll never understand why so many will support their own destruction. The fact that Detroit rejected Kenyatta is a hopeful sign in my book.

They’ve got a long way to go but every step forward is a good one.

I didn’t know Kwame Kenyatta split. Did he ever finish out his term? I wonder if what ever happened to the city council president? Anyone spot him lately? Last I heard it was NYC. Or was it Seattle?

Charles Pugh turned up in Seattle. I don’t know what the game is with him right now. I’m guessing he’s under investigation.

Kenyatta took a job in Jackson Mississippi as some kind of city govt watchdog.
