Skip to comments.Rev. Jackson: Obama, Feds Need To Do More To Combat Chicago Violence (Needs $2 billion more)
Posted on 07/10/2014 6:56:52 AM PDT by Zakeet
The Rev. Jesse Jackson and Mayor Emanuel are differing on where the fingers should be pointed when it comes to federal anti-violence help, reports WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore.
Rev. Jesse Jackson and Mayor Emanuel agree curbing violence involves not just police but economic development and jobs in high crime neighborhoods, but Rev. Jackson seemed to fault President Obama for funding priorities that appear to put immigrant children coming across the borders first.
If we can find $4 billion for those children, and we should, we can find $2 billion for Chicago, said Jackson.

Another $2 billion in economic development money and some more gun laws should do it!
“Something needs to be done about our ‘urban’ culture that results in this level of violence - give me... er, US! 2 billion!”
No one ever seems to mention that much of the violence in Chicago stems from turf wars involving Mexican drug cartels.
$2 billion deporting alien criminals and sealing our borders could make a real difference here, but I doubt that’s where the money would go.
Where there’s money to be handed out, JJ is there.
You know there comes a time when you have to tell that alcoholic uncle, that wasteful teen, and that spendthrift spouse, “NO!” When they show with their hand out for more.
They’re not using the money for the rent, or food, or even a car payment. They’re using it to support their habit of buying power and votes.
It’s time to no only say “no”, but to say, “HELL NO!”
Looks like Ø is now focusing his transformation on the workings of the executive now. His vision for a new presidency modus of operandi, create a crisis, then demand money be appropriated IMMEDIATELY to deal with it. Time is of essence. I’d add that the third step is to spend that money in ways not intended by Congress, not intended by listening to the original words, but in ways that are possible with the haste to which they get the money.
Give ACORN another $100 million
It won’t help the violence, but they will blame Republicans.
Raining free money and victim ideology on urban centers is what’s creating this violence.
I’d love to see a tally of the billions quietly pumped into Chicago during the Obama reign of error.
The “Rev” is one of the causes of the gun battles going on in Chicago
Doesn’t Je$$ie Jacka$$ have money?
How about the National Guard, Jesse?
Get in line, Jesse! :)
The money would go to Jesse Jackson for “community organizing”.
Hey jessee! I can tell you how to stop the violence but you won’t like it.

Local police needs to get tough with these dudes. Arrest/kill the perps when confronted. The ones arrested, if here illegally ship them back. If here legally put them on chain gangs and have them tear down and clear slum land. If they should ever run out of projects in Chicago have them start work on Detroit.
There are two quotes I've seen attributed to Reverend Love Child.Don't know if he actually said them (or anything like them) but if he did it would be funny:
1) While speaking to a (presumably) black audience he's is supposed to have once said something like "we don't have to fear the KKK,we need to fear the BBB (meaning "big black brother")
2) Again speaking to a (presumably) black audience he is supposed to have once said something like "when I'm walking down a dark,deserted street and hear footsteps behind me I'm relieved if I turn around and see that it's a white guy".
And then there's Chris Rock...who absolutely *did* have some interesting things to say on the subjects of "blacks versus niggaz".It's on youtube....pretty hard hitting coming from a black guy.
This is a black culture problem. Only solution is to flood the city with unemployed illegal immigrants who will push blacks up the economic ladder.
‘Local police needs to get tough with these dudes.’
Aint going to happen, these guys shoot back. Might interfere with supper plans for the cops, so that is a non-starter. Cops go after the law abiding, it is safer.
If we can’t end the gang violence in Latin America, how do we expect to do it in Chicago? If we can’t nation build in Iraq how can we expect to do it in Chicago?
Just throwing money at the problem won’t solve it. It is obvious that the thugs in Chicago have learned the same thing as the thugs in Latin America..the US is powerless to stop them.
why not give them the 2 billion? Not a penny more for anything. Period.
Then give them 30 days to clean-up the mess that is the City of Chicago.
If it cannot be cleaned up in 30 days, Repossess the whole city, then carpet bomb it. Including (especially) those in charge.
“Aint going to happen, these guys shoot back. Might interfere with supper plans for the cops, so that is a non-starter. Cops go after the law abiding, it is safer.”
Yeah, probably right. Ok, how about this; let’s build that fence along our southern border. Additionally, we build a fence around Chicago and of course provide everyone with a 9mm and limitless amounts of ammo. Oh, almost forgot; we do the same with Detroit. What do you think?

I don’t live anywhere near and so don’t care much what they do to each other but if I did I would think it sounds like a plan. Can you imagine the wailing from the ACLU and the NAACP and every liberal left wing nut case, be entertaining as he11. Never happen, and to be truthful I am sure there are still some good people there that just can’t leave for one reason or another.
The only thing that I can think of is another Great Awakening in those cities. That is the only thing that will save them from themselves. It is possible.
I am moving back to the mountains shortly. I don’t want to be near a city in the near future. Money will not stop this it will just fuel more corruption.
