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?"
His removal from the parish is allegedly pending his withdrawal “strategy”....
Ok, you're crazy! In fact your stupid on ice!
He was just suspended for not accepting a new placement at a Catholic High School.
Leftists are either ignorant of history, or are trying to rewrite it.
The very first “gun control law” denied Black People the right to carry arms.
Hasn’t changed much, since most Black folks live in the cities, where most of the “gun control” laws are.
Here is what I got from the article:
Left wing idiot liberals are really, really, REALLY afraid that we conservatives have guns.
No, he just goes down to the evidence locker and picks it up.
The Democratic Party.
This is the same argument that whites invented AIDS to kill blacks, or that whites developed drug addiction in order to kill blacks, or that whites did ???
I thought it was guns.
Hell chief ... even YOU should be able to figger this one out .... stop making laws against the Constitution.
(PS ... your own blacks and browns are killin' those black and brown chi'rin)
From what movie is that photo with Sean Connery?
The LEague of Extraordinary Gentlemen
That was probably the stupidest public statement I have ever seen, ever!
Yup, the entire purpose of private gun ownership is to keep minorities in their place. Yup.
thanks for the photo of the arrogant pig. I can’t write what I am thinking, I would get banned.
The slug is playing to his audience of squishy liberal yuppies on the lakeshore and plantation slaves on the south side. This New Jersey imported muppet wouldn’t last one minute in a bar fight.
BTW, he’s roundly hated by the rank and file blue at http://secondcitycop.blogspot.com/
interesting legally armed life stories from a local black guy here in MN.
There was no United States of America at the time.
This stupid McCarthy imagines history began with his arrival in this world ~
As one who was raised under the shadow of Mordor, er, Chicago, I can tell you that having a police sup as dumb as a pet rock is an advantage to the folks running Chicago. Not an accident, IMHO.
The only thing that is certain - Chicago's crime spree is only going to get worse with his type of leadership/thinking
