Chi-Town’s Bloody 4th of July: Lightfoot Cries Racism and Sexism to Deflect Incompetency Charges.

“Over 70 people have been shot, at least 14 of them fatally, by Sunday night over the Fourth of July weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

The fatalities included a seven-year-old Natalia Wallace, who was “shot in the head around 7 p.m. Saturday in the South Austin neighborhood while outside at a family gathering.”

A 14-year-old boy was among four victims fatally shot later Saturday night in Englewood, and their deaths come one weekend after a one-year-old and ten-year-old were shot dead in Lightfoot’s Chicago.

Chicago witnessed a 75 percent increase in shootings the month of June 2020.”

The systematic slaughter of black residents by drug gangs on the streets of Chicago is the biggest onslaught of racism in this country today. If 14 people in a primarily white suburb were murdered over one weekend, the images of the victims would have been plastered all over the media. Yet, “journalists” like Don Lemon do not mention black kids killed in gang shootouts in the poor neighborhoods of Chicago, because the only black victims that matter to CNN are the ones they can blame on white cops. Instead, it’s Mayor Lightfoot who gets the press by diverting the nation’s attention from mass murder in her city by racist publicity stunts.

Mayor Lightfoot was called out for lying about the court system just recently as an attempt to obfuscate.

“Under pressure to address Chicago’s ongoing surge in gun violence, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the county’s criminal court system is failing to do its part holding dangerous offenders accountable.”

But that was not true:

“Last year, Cook County did suspend jury trials amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Contrary to what Lightfoot claimed, however, the county’s criminal courts have continued their other operations over the past 15 months, and jury trials started up again this March.”

Alderman Raymond Lopez addressed the mayor’s incompetence in an interview on July 2nd before the fourth of July violence:

Mayor Lightfoot’s superiors are otherwise occupied. Governor Pritzker, whose governance produced more dead bodies in Chicago than the Taliban in Afghanistan, is fighting crime by reforming language. And President Biden’s crime-fighting strategy is targeting gun dealers, who have absolutely no connection to the pileup of bodies in Chicago.

While the bloodshed in her city continues, Lori Lightfoot wants you to know that the real victim is… herself.

“Look at my predecessors,” Lightfoot said. “…Women and people of color are always held to a different standard. I understand that. I’ve known that my whole life.”

It is indeed very unfair that only mayors who happen to be women of color are expected to protect their residents from being slaughtered on the streets.

Just like VP Harris, whose utter failure at her job is blamed on racism and sexism, Mayor Lightfoot thinks that expecting a woman of color to be competent at what she does is a true act of racism.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. Chicago needs weekend curfews. As soon as sunset arrives, all persons must be off the streets. This is not a solution to Chicago’s murder problem but it may save some youngsters’ lives.
