Joe Collins, an African American Republican from Los Angeles, believes the Democrats “have destroyed the very fabric of minority communities” and is determined to change that by running for the U.S. House of Representatives.
“There has never been a Democratic leader, including former President Obama and Maxine Waters, who has taken productive steps to improve or reverse the decades of destruction his party members have caused,” Collins said in looking back at his community, as reported in the Washington Post on July 19.
“Maxine Waters (Democratic Representative for Los Angeles) and other so-called Democratic Party leaders are pathetic and prove it every day. We don’t need any more complacency. We need action and opportunity,” reiterated Collins.
After serving in the U.S. Navy for more than 13 years, Collins is disappointed to see the state of his city and decided to run against Waters to represent California’s 43rd District.
Thus, Collins is one of many African Americans who supports President Donald Trump and said concrete action is needed to help overcome the controversial situations of which Democrats in the country are accused.
On the one hand, they are accused of being the driving force behind the wave of demonstrations that have led to destruction in many cities since the death of African American George Floyd on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
On the other hand, throughout President Trump’s term of office they have attacked him, seeking his removal and so far every attempt failed.
As evidence, analysts present the deplorable state of deterioration in which the cities led by Democrats were left, mainly due to the vandalism of the Black Lives Matter movement and the left-wing antifa group.
The Democrats are also being held responsible for the exaggerated increase in violence in their cities, where they also defund the police and even prevent them from controlling the riots that occur and from collaborating with the federal officials who are sent to do so, as is the case in Portland.
Collins pointed to Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden as one of those who has contributed to the deterioration of the lives of members of minorities, and in particular African Americans.
“He introduced the mass incarceration of black men because he thinks blacks are super predators,” Collins said of Biden.
