CHICAGO (WLS) - Chicago's new top cop says the accessibility to firearms in America is an extension "of government-sponsored racism" that goes back to the days of slavery and Jim Crow.
Speaking to parishoners at St. Sabina Church earlier this month, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy took to the microphone after Father Michael Pfleger spoke about gun control.
McCarthy said the topic of race is a sensitive issue "because everybody's afraid of race" but that he wasn't afraid to broach to subject.
So heres what I want to tell you. See, lets see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting scared? Government sponsored racism."
"Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if Im crazy. Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children," he said.
"The NRA does not like me, and Im okay with that. Weve got to get the gun debate back to center, and its got to come with the recognition of whos paying the price for the gun manufacturers being rich and living in gated communities," McCarthy said.
McCarthy illustrated his point by recalling a crime scene investigation while he was a police official in Newark, New Jersey where five children were shot, two of whom were killed. McCarthy said when he got home, he turned on his television to unwind and find an episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" showing.
"She was caribou hunting and talking about the right to bear arms. Why wasn't she at the crime scene with me?"
It’s bad enough he said all this, but the venue was Father Pfleger’s St. Sabina Church, which is a Catholic Church. All this was said during Holy Mass. When will the Cardinal pull the plug on Ffleger?
“Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common?”
DEMOCRATS for 600 Alex!
Riddle me this: who is pulling the trigger killing these black and brown children? A million bucks says its OTHER BLACK AND BROWN CHILDREN!
Tell that to my friend who was recently beat up and robbed by gun-totting thugs. Too bad she isn’t Alderman Burke with a 25 year old court order requiring round the clock police protection....
Oh I knew that. The question was more rhetorical. :)
Most black victims are victimized by the criminals we coddle. Allowing concealed carry would do more to help lowere the black crime rate than just about anything else.
>>>”She was caribou hunting and talking about the right to bear arms. Why wasn’t she at the crime scene with me?”<<<
This has got to be one of the top 10 stupid quotes I’ve ever read, and I’m 55 years old. Here’s a good response:
“I was out on the tundra quartering this caribou and talking about that tasty backstrap, waiting to fry it up in camp. Why wasn’t he out here helping me haul this out instead of hanging around back east with a bunch of hoodlums?”
They do things differently.
It appears as if this moron was throwing red meat at a black audience and using Sarah Palin’s name as an applause line. He is wrong on everything he said but his audience doesn’t know and doesn’t care, any more than the Superintendent does. It’s all race and hate and this ‘top cop’ eagerly joined in the hate-fest in Chicago. No wonder Obama looked like he was brilliant if this is what passes for an authority figure in Chicago government.
Liberal insanity will eventually attack, it starts with freedoms, regulations, then taxation, and then violence when union/public workers are not fed their “fair share”.
This is when there cannot be mercy.
They want to kill you, rape your family and make you poor and homeless.
A Chicago (democrat) police superintendent that displays the all intelligence of a pet rock! Why am I not surprised? /s
If requiring picture ID prevents minorities from voting, the Form 4473 should pretty much exclude minorities from legal firearm purchases.
And most (not all) gun stores are NOT in "urban centers".
I think that this is evidence that the price of crack has come down to where this guy can afford it.
Eight suspects turn selves in after savage jogger assault
Teens condition critical after attack; suspects aged 13-19
The victim was white. The assailants were black. A gun would have come in handy for the victim.
Chicago has one of the highest murder rates in the country, so I don’t think we need to go to them for advice.
I wonder if GW Bush or Richard Nixon are responsible for the flash mobs in this asspimple’s mind?
Wasn't he suspended until recently reinstated?
Spurce site pulled comments section from their webpage.
“Father Michael Pfleger spoke about gun control” ...’nuff said, the Commie perverter of Christianity wants Marxism here, no guns, so the Liberals can hold everyone hostage.
Sooo Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy seems but one of many of America’s cops that haven’t read or support the U.S. Constitution.
Does this include Gunwalker and Fast & Furious?
