Skip to comments.It's time to hold Democrats responsible for Chicago's violence
Posted on 08/06/2018 2:56:01 PM PDT by detective
Most Americans are appalled to read that 63 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend, with 10 fatalities. The numbers are huge, downright massacre-level. News coverage says Chicago's hospital and emergency rooms are now crowd scenes. Here in California, we are appalled at the death toll among firemen and other public workers in California's massive wildfires, brought about by eco-wackos and their environmental mismanagement, which have killed 7. In Chicago, seven dead would be a good day.
What's going on? All of these attacks are gang-related, according to this report, and are happening in the 6th, 10th, and 11th Districts, all led by Democrats. What a massive sludge of corruption and thuggery rests behind that.

[The] "violence is all the result of gangs and Democrats being in bed with each other, one hand washing the other, and in those very districts named above. Democratic politicians sidle up to gang leaders for votes and use their thugs as substitutes for their political organizations. They muscle voters to the polls for the Democrats, and anyone who rebels gets a beating. Gang leaders in turn make demands of politicians for protection from police and get flows of city funds from these same Democrats, generally as city subcontractors, calling it "jobs for youth" and "second chances" or something. The left benefits, so it gives the gangs what they want."
Democrats have been running Chicago uninterrupted since Anton Cermak in 1931.
How do the numbers compare with those of the late 20s, early 30s (the Al Capone era)?
Beside the Dems, the roots of the problem are 1) many generational home with unmarried mothers/fatherless boys 2) the gangs...the blacks are the bottom of the pile, whilst the “Hispanics” ( many ILLEGAL ALIENS! ) on the West side are running the drug operations 3) the POVERTY PIMPS and RACE HUSTLERS such as “Father” Flagler,Jesse Jackson/The Rainbow Colalition,the NOI ( Nation of Islam ) and the nameless COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS.
I didn’t know about the gangs and local government corruption, then thought ‘but it is Chicago’. I don’t think Al Capone wrought the mayhem it’s experiencing now. It wouldn’t have been tolerated.
There were "turf wars"; however, they didn't go on killing sprees every weekend!
Not to excuse Big Al, but Chicago would probably be better and safer somewhat if Al ran the joint.
Not enough common sense gun-control laws
Did I forget anything?
Lefties think all of that ...and, when they can, move to conservative neighborhoods and states. We just want them to stay where they are and leave us alone.
Obviously, Rahm baby will refuse “help”.
At the next Cabinet meeting when Donald has one of his impromptu press events, I'd then say “well I offered and he turned help down. Can you believe that he's hung his citizens (carefully choice of word there) out to dry??”
“Obviously, Rahm baby will refuse help.
Of course “DEAD FISH” would refuse any help because to him, everything is just peachy.
That’s not to say there aren’t problems. There are. But it doesn’t lie with California Gov. Brown’s white whale, global warming, on which he is truly an Ahab-like fanatic.
He should instead point the finger of blame at two major reasons for destructive fires: One, in recent decades we’ve built homes and expanded towns in remote areas where previously there were few people or none.
But even more seriously is the federal government’s foolish policies related to fire control.
“One of the biggest problems is the overcrowding of Western forests with dead trees, and the areas beween stand with dry, flammable grasses,” noted a recent analysis in the Washington Examiner. “Part of the problem is that logging and grazing have been discontinued or discouraged in too many places.”
Worse, the federal government’s policy of wildfire suppression has, perhaps paradoxically, contributed to the problem. Before humans lived here in enormous numbers, the landscape had many small fires that suddenly erupted from lightning strikes and other causes, and then burnt themselves out.
But in recent decades, the policy has been to stop fires immediately. This leaves huge areas of accumulating dry brush that catches fire fast and burns hot, with the fire traveling quickly once lit. That’s where we are today
It kills large numbers of blacks, imprisons large numbers of others, and leaves the rest living in fear, crime-ridden, poorly educated, poor, and dependent. Just the way Democrats like it.
anyone heard anything from black lives matter
