“Rules for thee, but not for me!” Democrat hypocrisy in 2020

Dan Bongino compiles a solid list of Democrat leaders neck deep double standards. They believe the public is there to serve them, not the other way around.

“I’ve a right to make sure my home is secure!” – Lori Lightfoot

You have to hand it to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. As crime surges in her city due to her utter incompetence, she banned protests around her neighborhood block. Chicago PD has been authorized to arrest anyone who refuses to leave.

She said, “I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure…

…I’m not going to make any excuses for the fact that, given the threats I have personally received, given the threats to my home and my family, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure they’re protected…I make no apologies whatsoever for that.”

Amazing how the policies she prescribed have led to so much of the very violence that occurs in her city. Perhaps if she had shut down the mobs and enforced law and order she wouldn’t be requiring taxpayers to divert funds to defend her fortress while everyone else suffers.

We think that political leaders should live with the very security and policing standards they expect others to endure. Maybe that way they might be incentivized to find solutions instead of appeasing the mob while taking care of personal interests.

Ransacked Ronald McDonald House in Chicago housed 2yo stage 4 cancer patient

This is 2-yo Owen Mitchell. He has stage 4 cancer.

Yesterday we wrote of the thuggery caused by peaceful protestors who ransacked a Ronald McDonald House looking after sick kids in Chicago.

After being informed by a Lurie Children’s Hospital nurse that Owen’s morning appointment would be cancelled because of glass and other debris on the streets left by rioters, his mother Valeria said,

So that meant Owen couldn’t go home like was planned for his birthday…We had about a month-long stay at Lurie’s and then a two-week stay at the Ronald McDonald’s house, so it was like a long time coming, and, you know, it just ruined it.

Perhaps Kamala Harris should switch her funding suggestions from bailing out criminals causing mayhem to helping sick kids beat cancer instead?

Get well Owen!

Chicago & Portland Mayors finally agree Trump was right all along

Chicago’s Magnificent Mile was ransacked by looters. City officials ended up raising bridges across the river to prevent further rioters entering the CBD, albeit too late. Similar actions occurred during BLM protests several months ago.

Luxury goods stores were the main target. Chicago police exchanged gunfire with looters and arrested more than 100 people.

Most interesting were the comments made by Superintendent of Police David O’Neil Brown, who said that the CPD is being forced to release criminals who only become emboldened to double down and commit further crimes without consequence.

Brown said, “This was not an organized protest. Rather this was an incident of pure criminality…As of now, Chicago police have made more than 100 arrests for looting, disorderly conduct, battery against police, among other charges. A total of 13 officers have been injured throughout the night, including a sergeant who was struck with a bottle. Another officer had his nose broken as he fought with a group of looters…Criminals took to the streets with confidence that there’ll be no consequences for their actions. Let me say that again, criminals took to the street with the confidence that there would be no consequences for their actions and I, for one, refuse to allow these cowardly acts to hold our city hostage.”

Mayor Lori Lightfoot moved away from her traditional “everything is under control” narrative to confess, “These individuals engaged with it can only be described as brazen and extensive criminal looting and destruction. To be clear, this had nothing to do with legitimate protected first amendment expression.

What a surprise? When she gave carte blanche to criminals and rioters under the guise of peaceful protestors, what did she expect? Now she is seeking to do the exact thing Trump was demanding of her. Get tough.

How the tide is turning. Only days ago, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) finally admonished the mob he had openly protested with by stating,  “When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder.” He also added “Don’t think for a moment that you are, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are…You are creating the b-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.

Who knew that one way to get peace in a city is to tell rioters their actions are helping the very man they want to be removed from office?

Way to go De Blasio

As murders and shootings skyrocket in NYC as NYPD officers quit in droves, Mayor Bill De Blasio thinks that the most pressing issue in NYC is a study of the official seal depicting a Native American and a white male settler and whether it is appropriate for the times.

Here we were thinking that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was out of touch with the Census Cowboy as crime rages in her city.

 

Bill DeBlasio introduces gun buyback program

Where will NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio’s genius end? As gun crime spikes in his city, he thinks a gun buyback will solve it. Maybe cutting $1bn from the police budget might be a factor in rising crime? When his own police officers are quitting in droves and making spoof videos about the new rules he has set for interacting with suspects.

Perhaps gangsters can hand in the guns of their victims and start a side business. Who knew the mayor might end up subsidizing criminals?

Sadly, despite shootings up 253% in NYC in mid-July, the studies on gun buybacks in the US have all returned the same result – ineffective.

We are struggling to work out who is the worst mayor in America. De Blasio must be in the running. The field of incompetent Democrat mayors is deep. – Lightfoot, Durkan, Bottoms, Bowser, Wheeler, Garcetti… the list goes on.

Tucker Carlson excoriates Lori Lightfoot

Tucker Carlson documents just how incompetent Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is.

No Mayor Lightfoot, your incompetence is the problem, not identity

Despotic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot let rip again at President Trump for his intent to send federal troops by claiming that he was just being mean to Democrat mayors who happened to be female. She cried that Trump “only wants to make us look bad.

No need for him to do that. You’ve done that on your own.

Lightfoot claimed she’s “getting it done” despite a huge spike in gun deaths and shootings. Her incompetence extends to the manner in which she filters out what she doesn’t want to hear as evidenced by her fracas with Alderman Raymond Lopez. She is also focusing on a census campaign during this time of crime.

She mentioned that Trump picked on Seattle Mayor Jenny “summer of love” Durkan who said that CHAZ was just a street fair. Despite the deaths and destruction to the block she only acted when her own $7m mansion was at stake. Could that be a reason Mayor Lightfoot?

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was also mentioned by Lightfoot as being bullied by the president. Didn’t she see Bowser get her head handed to her on a platter by Black Lives Matter for writing Black Lives Matter on the road outside the White House for “appeasing white liberals“?

Or Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Another target. She acknowledged that police morale is “down ten-fold” due to the limitations placed on them during the riots. Atlanta Police were calling in sick at record numbers. No surprise when the totally corrupt DA was essentially saying the cop who shot Rayshard Brooks should receive the death penalty.

What has gender got to do with it anyway?Portland’s mayor is male. He has federal officers in his city.

So Mayor Lightfoot, you may like to claim to be Chicago’s first black lesbian mayor but something tells us that if you focused on your ability rather than your identity your constituents might be happier. As it stands, identity seems to be all you have and we doubt any Chicagoans care about what goes on behind closed doors. They want an end to the violence.

Trump will make a fool of you. Make no mistake. But know it was a 100% set inflicted wound.

The One Way Outrage Mob

While Republican House Rep from Florida, Ted Yoho, apologized for his indirect profanity towards Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the left is still outraged.

Of course, liberals tried to connect the motivation for his comments to that of being an old, white cis-gendered male telling off a young woman of colour. Rep Yoho argued that AOC’s comments justifying “shoplifting” bordered on insanity given the congressman and his wife came from poverty.

On reflection, getting caught calling AOC a “f*cking bitch” behind her back was never going to be looked at in a positive light but where was the leftist outrage demanding an apology from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for telling one of her aldermen, Raymond Lopez, that he was “full of sh*t” when he asked her to do something about the rampant crime in his area or telling President Trump, “F. You“?

Of course, if the Left didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have standards at all.

Lori Lightfoot puts her slipper down in Chicago as crime skyrockets

Chicago

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lambasted the idea that Trump might send federal troops to protect federal property as crime skyrockets in her city. In 2020, murders up 51%. Shootings are up 47%. But hey, never mind that over a dozen people were shot in broad daylight outside a funeral home.

She tweeted, “Mr. President or not—I don’t care one bit what your name is. I will not allow troops in Chicago, and I will do everything in my power to stop you.

She claimed the federal troops would have no idea how to navigate Chicago. If we took several of her aldermen at their word, it is Lightfoot who has no idea about her city.

Maybe if she was more proactive in stemming the violence, Mr Trump would have no requirement to send troops. The irony came from an MSNBC interview with local Chicago residents who openly said, “federal help” would be most welcome to put an end to the warzone conditions. Who knew? We guess that Lightfoot’s own taxpayer-funded private security allows her to sleep soundly at night.

Sounds more like Lightfoot’s well-documented TDS as opposed to her utter lack of leadership.

Perhaps she needs to deputize the Census Cowboy to law enforcement instead?
