Skip to comments.Chicago in Meltdown as Rahm Fundraises
Posted on 09/07/2012 4:07:46 PM PDT by mojito
The city of Chicago, the third largest in America, is crumbling into anarchy. The murder rate is so out of control that federal authorities have agreed to assist the Chicago Police Department in their efforts to curb soaring violence. The city has seen over a thirty-percent rise in its murder rate this year and in the last eight days of August, 82 people were killed or wounded by gun violence. With his city in a violent downward spiral, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has been focusing on whats important: banning Chik-fil-A from Chicago.
On Wednesday, during Bill Clintons address to the DNC in Charlotte, cameras panned to Emanuel, laughing in the audience. While he was enjoying his stay in Charlotte at least three people were murdered back home in Chicago just that night. What could be more important than taking charge of one of the most violent cities in America? Apparently, for Emanuel, its fundraising for his old boss President Barack Obama.

The Mayor’s not in town, uh oh, the Gangsters gone wild, oh no.
Chicago...Detroit...Obama’s America if he is reelected. Bet on it. Watts like riots will be a daily fare for anyone unlucky enough to live in a metropolitan area or a suburb. My God...they are shooting kids on school buses in Chicago now. I expect that any day soon one of the anti-God democrats will open up with an Uzi in a church or synagogue. This is Marxism just at its onset. It only gets worse. We will skip 3rd world and move right to 4th. God save the Republic!
So where is Farakan??
I was thinking Chicagahar.
None of that matters to anyone as long as the unions and democrats remain in power.
Chicago is a quagmire. Time to pull our people out.
Murder city of the world and people just ignore it. duh
Dance, little ballerina, dance.......
Romney should run ads about the murder rate of blacks killing blacks and say he’ll ask Jackson and Sharpton to co-chair a commission.
The prancer’s in charge....all is well.
All that hate, envy, welfarism and racial agitation is paying off. It’s Obama’s kind of town.
MURDERS IN CHICAGO DURING THE DNC
(they didn’t have a debt clock, so I thought a murder clock might suffice)
Day 4: Larry Porter, 25, gunshot, Chatham
Day 3: James Coleman, 18, gunshot, Greater Grand Crossing; Muhammed
Kebbeh, 19, gunshot, Chatham; and Marcus Harrell, 25, gunshot, Washington Park.
Day 2: Eduardo Acosta, 27, gunshot, West Elston.
Day 1: Jeffrey Smith, 38, gunshot, Calumet Heights; and Yolanda Holmes, 45, gunshot, Uptown
The unnoticed miracles...
Rahm saving the lives and conscious of thousands of CHICK-FIL-A employees, the loss of equipment, Union protests, city inspector bribes, tons of lawyers fees, and negative income, by keeping them out of Chicago.
Rahm diverting campaign funds AWAY from Obama.
Is there no honor amongst thieves these days?
Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s doing his part to keep the city’s values pure - he’s blocked Chick-fil’A from doing business...
Dinesh D'Souza is way ahead of you. Please go see 2016 in a theater near you, if you can. It will connect all the dots for you about Obama's behavior.
Nuke Chicago from orbit, just to be sure.
Good Luck. Got out of Chicago a year and a half ago when the income tax shot up 66% Overnight!!!
Thanks. We’re stuck for now: aging parents, husband’s business flat lining (he didn’t build that), terrible real estate market. We decided to make the best of it and plant our conservative flag in enemy soil for all to see. Say it high and say it proud: I’m conservative and I am proud. We hope other like minded Chicagoans will join us.
It amazes me that the media reports the Chicago street wars like baseball scores. There seems to be no real concern for the slaughter in the streets- its all just filler for the six o’clock news.
“Never let a crisis go to waste ...”
I’m not seeing much action by Chicago authorities to crack down on the violence. Maybe they are doing something, but we’re not hearing about it.
Could the murder rate in Chicago be used to justify military intervention? And if the military intercedes there, why not elsewhere?
Don’t worry about the camel. He’s just warming up his nose by slipping it into the tent. Nothing to see here.
Chicago is a beautiful city. This is really sad.
I think it was the old shock-jock “The Greaseman” who once quipped that “Chicago” was an ancient Indian word that translates as “It sucks here”...
