Delusional Baltimore mayor brags about her actions during ‘few hours’ of rioting

The great luxury of being a “progressive” Democrat in America today is the self-granted privilege of re-writing history to suit your needs.

Enter Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who now has a whole different take on the riots that engulfed her city following the death of Freddie Gray.

Baltimore Sun reporter Justin Fenton posted a video on social media of Rawlings-Blake defending her leadership as mayor, saying that “we were able to control the unrest and riots to a few hours on one day.”

“There are a lot of cities that would love to have that record,” she added.

But that’s not what happened. The worst of the riots occurred on Monday, April 27, 2015, in part because Rawlings-Blake, in the quest to give rioters “space to destroy,” ordered police to stand down. But violent unrest had already been occurring.

There’s a now-iconic photograph of a young black man standing on top of a police vehicle, smashing the windshield with a cone — this occurred on Saturday, May 25.

The mayor also seems to overlook that the National Guard rolled into her city on Tuesday and that a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew went into effect.

A curfew that Rawlings-Blake announced on Monday, before the rioting later that evening, but for some reason delayed the implementation of until the next day.

The reaction on social media  seemed to center on one observation: “How is this woman still in office in Baltimore?”

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
