The far left loves to pretend that they care deeply about the concerns that arise in our nation’s inner cities. It’s all lip service but that does not stop them from continuing to lie in our faces. If they cared at all, they would be willing to address what is taking place in Chicago right now. Instead, they pretend that they do not see it, so they can continue to live in willful ignorance.
While these spoiled suburb dwellers continue to play around, cities like Chicago are under siege. The amount of violence that took place during the 4th of July weekend is enough to give anyone pause. 92 people were shot and 16 of these victims died as a result of their injuries. Even the children were not safe, as six were injured during the shootings. The Chicago Sun-Times has more:
“In the deadliest and most violent weekend this year in Chicago, 92 people have been shot over the long Fourth of July weekend, 16 of them killed.
Among the 76 wounded were six children and teenagers and two Chicago police supervisors. Five of the kids were shot within nine hours Sunday evening through early Monday.
Both the number of fatal shootings and the number of shootings overall are highs for 2021, according to a Chicago Sun-Times database of shootings. By 5 p.m. Monday, Chicago had recorded 2,000 shootings this year, the Sun-Times’ database shows.
In one of the holiday weekend incidents, two people were killed and four wounded, including a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy early Monday in Washington Park on the South Side.
That happened around the same time that a 6-year-old girl and a woman were shot in West Pullman and about four hours after an 11-year-old boy and a man were shot in Brainerd on the South Side. And late Sunday afternoon, a 5-year-old girl was shot in a leg, also in West Pullman.”
Lori Lightfoot is an abject failure and this needs to be called out. Like most Democrats who do not have the ability to accept accountability for their actions, she has decided to blame things on Trump. The man has been out of office since January but he’s still taking the heat for everything that happens.
“It is incredibly gratifying to have a partner in the White House who understands the appropriate and unique role that the federal government has to play in public safety at the local level; for four years we were ignored, over and over again,” Lightfoot said during Friday’s briefing. “I started raising these issues from the moment I became mayor. We needed more help from our federal partners,” she continued.
The implication here is a clear one. Trump was not willing to help out but now things are going to get better because the almighty Biden is weighing in. Lightfoot is not fooling anyone with these theatrics. All she is doing is trying her best to sweep the current crime wave under the rug. If she can figure out a way to blame Donald Trump for it at the same time, all the better.
2,000 shootings have already taken place in Chicago this year alone. Lightfoot might have some misguided belief that Biden and Harris are going to do something about this. We know better. Biden will get one of his aides to choose a Chicago rap song to quote in one of his speeches and Harris will break out her finest pair of Timberland boots for the occasion.
That’s all they are good for, essentially. The Democrats love their performative displays, that is for sure. They are going to be breaking out the kente cloth in no time at all. All jokes aside, the city of Chicago is on fire right now. We are losing our minds watching all of this take place and our hearts go out to all of residents who are currently worried sick about the rash of violence in their city.
