FACT CHECK: Bernie Sanders Blames Detroit on 'Corporations.' 100% False...
Sometime, factual inaccuracies are so bad that they can cause physical pain.. Bernie Sanders just blamed Detroit on...you guessed it, millionaires and billionaires. Watch the clip below in small doses, and have your preferred family physician on speed-dial.
Yes, you heard it correctly. Bernie Sanders just blamed Detroit... on capitalist "corporations."
Hmmmm, here's something odd. These "capitalist corporations" exist in every other city in every other state. Heck, they also exist just a couple hours west of Detroit in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which was recently named the #1 place to raise a family due to low crime and a burgeoning economy.
Northern Michigan is flourishing as well. Hmmmmm.....
What could be the difference then? Why is it that Detroit (and Flint, for all intents and purposes) is the one area of Michigan that's a cesspool of filth sadness where dreams go to die? Oh that's right, I filmed a mini-documentary on the subject (which racked up nearly four million plays).
You really should watch it, but the short end: once the wealthiest city in the country. That all changed with far-left Democratic mayors however, who've entirely run and dictated Detroit's policy since 1961. Completely unfettered. If you want to see a utopia, where Democrats have been given everything and anything they've wanted for half a century...
You look to Detroit.
Grand Rapids ranked #1 place to raise family.
Detroit #1 in murder.
Still don't believe me? Okay here, let me take you on a real time ride along through Detroit today. Complete with a stop-watch and mileage tracker so you can see exactly what the city landscape looks like. Remember, when you watch this... think Democrats.
