Chicago Elects A New Mayor
In an article titled “What has Chicago done?” by Wirepoints, the author says:
Chicagoans cheered Mayor Lightfoot’s exit.
Gone was her toxic attitude. Her flippant dismissal of the city’s many crises. Her dismal record on crime. And her destruction of police morale.
She was an absolute failure by any measure. From the beginning, she was more interested in imposing a progressive vision and an “equity” agenda on Chicago than enacting the many reforms the city needed.
So Chicagoans kicked out Lightfoot. Change was possible.
But what Chicagoans voted for on April 4 was someone more extreme and exactly opposite of what the city needed.
To reduce Chicago’s nation-high homicide rate, Chicago needed a new mayor willing to take on Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s unwillingness to prosecute dangerous criminals. A mayor willing to challenge Judge Tim Evans’ decarcerationist agenda. A mayor willing to jam shut the system’s revolving door for criminals.
Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson won’t do any of that. Instead, look for him to embrace the policies of Foxx and Evans. In his own words, he’s for defunding the police and defends looting as “an outbreak of incredible frustration and anguish” tied to “a failed racist system.”
Watch for police morale to fall further, for criminals to be emboldened and for crime to continue to spike in Chicago.
Lightfoot was already a demon. But this guy is even worse. We are watching the entire city of Chicago play poker—They have a losing hand, they know we know they have a losing hand, but they went all-in, anyway. What a time to be alive.
Chicago has always been a failed city:
- Chicago Officials Acting Like Chicago Officials
- The Video Of Two White Men Being Beaten Unconscious, Robbed, and Twerked On In Chicago
- Have We “Atoned” For George Floyd Yet? Chicago On Fire… Again
So this is nothing new.
But I have to wonder if the citizens of Chicago actually voted for this, or if the result was already predetermined like the federal elections. Was it fraud or the stupidity of the citizens?
I could honestly go both ways, considering how Chicagoans are. It would not surprise me no matter which it was.
I will always have a soft spot for Chicago, as I lived there for a brief stint. But its warning signs were even evident back then, and it is completely unrecognizable to what it once was in history.
Still, we have to look on the bright side. At least we will continue to get a steady flow of absolutely ridiculous news from the city into the future. I anxiously wait for their next major riots, pandemic, and capital flight to see what happens. Lightfoot was a great source of entertainment, and black Brandon will be no different.
Find enjoyment in the little things during the great decline of our state. It’s the only way to stay sane.
