Chicago in Meltdown as Rahm Fundraises
Commentary ^ | 9/7/2012 | Bethany Mandel

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 what’s important: banning Chik-fil-A from Chicago.

On Wednesday, during Bill Clinton’s 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, it’s fundraising for his old boss President Barack Obama.

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!

They’re getting the weekend off to an early start in …umm..er…Chi-town today. Someone reportedly put a bullet through a school bus full of children this morning.

"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."

None of that matters to anyone as long as the unions and democrats remain in power.

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.

All that hate, envy, welfarism and racial agitation is paying off. It’s Obama’s kind of town.

Just think how bad it would be if there were a Chick-fil-A in Chicago.

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.

Don't nuke us. Not every Chicagoan is a libtard. Many Chicagoans are crossing over to our side. We will do our part on Nov. 6 and just maybe, bit by bit, things will start to change around here.

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.

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”...
