On CNN, Cause of Chicago Violence Is You Guessed It The GOP
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 02/22/2013 6:24:28 PM PST by chessplayer

Chicago hasn’t had a Republican mayor in over 80 years. Democrats have controlled the Illinois governor’s mansion and both houses of the legislature for more than a decade, with Democrats ruling the Illinois House for 28 of the last 30 years. No matter, Chicago violence is the fault of Republicans. We learned that this morning on CNN Newsroom when anchor Carol Costello asked her “Talk Back” guests about Retired Lt. General Russel Honore’s suggestion to use National Guard troops to curb murders in Chicago. Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman astutely pinpointed the reason for Chicago’s carnage:

And let's be very clear about what's happening in Washington today and why it's undermining the city of Chicago, because there's a mindset now in our government, in Washington, from the Republican members of Congress, that sequestration is an acceptable way of doing business, that we can in fact engage in these massive irresponsible cuts that no one thinks is a logical approach to budgeting.

And that undermines law enforcement in our cities; it undermines so many education opportunities for our younger people and it does in fact -- in fact create an impoverished class of our society that leads to abuse, leads to violence and leads to more Chicagos.

“On CNN, Cause of Chicago Violence Is ...”

I would have guessed they said: George Bush, George Zimmerman, Global Warming, SUV’s, George Costanza and the Van Buren Boys, etc.

Actually had Warren Buffet paid his taxes they would have all been spared,

But Obama’s mindset is to give Warren a medal instead.

Low-info voters, of course, will not stop to think that the killings in Chicago have been happening way before sequestration was thought up by BO and his crew.

This is how Dems get away with things: their people are just too stupid to put two and two together.

Perhaps Zimmerman can tell his boss Baraq that it was a bad idea when HE CAME UP WITH IT, then.

sequestration is obama’s brilliant solution. he came up with it. only tng you can do is blame repub’s for not sayig no to it, but then thy’d have been torn up and down by the very samne folks for opposing obama’s brilliant solution.

this is just blaming others for everything he democrats have and continue to screw up when they’re left in charge.

this is marxist. it’s right out of 1984.

white guys are goldstein. europeans coming to america are goldstein. law-abiding gun owners are goldstein. conservatives are goldstein. bible-believing christians are goldstein.

these people are just deflecting and projecting onto target groups they hate, and are useful to hate at the moment.

I am an elected Official in my township and I am 100% sure that our Police will be working after the sequestration. There is a good reason for this, the local citizens pay them not the FEDS. How can the media allow the POTUS get away with these misstatements?

Baraq, WithHolder, and Rhambo could fix Chicago’s gun problem tomorrow if they would deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control and send them in to round up the illegal guns.

C’mon guys, do it “for the children”.

If you control the information people receive, you can tell them any lie you want and the other side can complain all they want but the general population has no knowledge of the truth.

Now how can a Democrat say something like this and keep a straight face? How can a member of the press let him get away with it?

The Republican House has passed several budgets every year of the Obama’s administration but they have never even reached the floor of the Democrat Senate.

Obama’s submitted budgets have been so laughable that they were not even considered in the Senate.

So a Democrat saying anything like this is so absurd as to be self satirical.

Unless that's a lie about to be exposed. Chicago is in really bad shape financially and I wouldn't be at all surprised if there was some secret money being piped into Chi-town.

I have been spening a considerable amount of time of late reading the propaganda that the Nazi’s used to desensitize their population against the jews.

We are seeing it again now...substitute “white” for “jew” and it reads almost word for word what we are hearing now.

You should read “The Language of the Third Reich” by Viktor Klemperer. Its about how the nazis manipulated the language to manipulate society.

I think of the way the word “Militia” has been demonized. It once conjured images of honor, duty, and patriotism. Today its used to denote racism and anti government violence.

Interestingly enough Viktor Klemperer’s cousin was Werner Klemperer who played Col. Klink on Hogan’s Heroes.

and consider the black atty general only prosecuting hate crimes against blacks, but not whites.

if a white ag did the same thing reversed, how long would he last? and how many nationwide riots would there be, and how many libtard media people would be justifying those riots?

I thought this was going to be about blaming lack of gun control on the GOP. But the National Guard - really?

Democrats were having cows over the idea of armed guards at schools. Now they’re a** over teacups to have a member of the National Guard on every street corner in Chicago?

What is wrong with these people? The whole Democrat party is schizophrenic!

The refusal to rationalize circumstances of the masses is just an extension of European modernism which created the USSR and fanatical National Socialism in Nazi Germany. The United States is screwed, long live natural science and the refusal to acknowledge the First Cause; anxiety here we come.

So Chicago didn't have a murder "problem" until the Obama uttered the word "sequestration," and his threat to veto any legislation that bypassed it...

How many murders in 2011? How about 2010?

I know... The Republicans actually have a time machine that sends mind imprints back through time in order to have these "mindsets!"

They want the National Guard because the city wouldn’t have to pay them. The state or federal government would pick up the tab for the National Guard. Tell them that the taxpayers of Chicago have to pay to mobilize the National Guard and watch how quick they walk away from that idea.
