I’ve spent 2/3 of my life in and (now) outside the City of Chicago – a big chunk of that was spent in the South Side neighborhood that Barack Obama made his power base. Bill Ayers, and David Axelrod – extremely destructive Jewish 60s radicals, lying liberals are based there as is the Black Liberation Theology cult headed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Rev. Wright later decided to move to a wealthy White suburb Tinley Park and commute with his “God Damn White America” cult. link Black Liberation Theology cult Leader Rev. Wright was bitter that Obama’s Jewish handlers (Rahm Emanuel, Axelrod) wouldn’t let him have any access to President Obama, though race hustler Rev. (not) Sharpton was a regular White House visitor.

This week’s Chicago mayoral election looks to be God awful – favorite is my Black/mixed race former Alderwoman Toni Preckwinkle. Toni P, George Soros ($400,000 donation) and assorted BlackLiesMatter White cop haters managed to push through Kim Fox as Chicago’s District Attorney. Thus, Chicago has a conviction clearance rate of ~ 17% on last year for 566 murders and 3,000 + shootings. Oh and we just elected our first Jew Governor JB Pritzger. Chicago is a sanctuary city that doesn’t enforce laws against illegal immigration and is thus the main heroin distribution center of the largest Mexican cartel.
So on balance Chicago looks to be as bad or worse than New York City when I lived there in the late 1980s.
We do have a few good things “left behind in Chicago”. One of them is Greek American reporter John Kass, who just tells things as he sees them from a Greek American, long time Chicagoan perspective. John Kass is pretty much following in the tradition of the best ever Mike Royko.
Presented are excerpts for “Fair Comment” under the 1st Amendment – here’s John Kass’ (Chicago Tribune Feb. 21 2019) take on the Jussie Smollette racial hate crime hoax and Chicago’s appalling Black violent crime (link)
“it’s easy to lose what’s important with all the panic and intersectional hatred and liberal identity politics gone bad in this Smollett story.
What’s been lost is this:
I’m told that two dozen detectives were assigned to the Smollett case.
Can Chicago afford that, what with all the unsolved murders and shootings in this town?
There were some 18 people killed in Chicago after Smollett began telling his story in late January, that story in which he cast himself as the hero, about having to fight off pro-Trump racists…..two dozen detectives for Smollett just doesn’t seem right. Make no mistake. I’m not blaming the detectives, or the Chicago Police Department.
They work for a politician. His name is Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who famously announced a few years ago that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.
And when Smollett told his amazing story, about being a black gay man attacked by racist Trump supporters on one of the coldest nights of the year, the media was all over it. National politicians were all over it.
They bought it without question.
“This was an attempted modern-day lynching,” tweeted Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris of California. “No one should ever have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.”
Sen. Cory Booker, the New Jersey Democrat, issued a similar tweet, although it saddened me that his mythical friend, the dangerous drug dealer T-Bone, had nothing to say.
But other Democrats fell in line. And CNN and many who earn their livings in the Washington-New York liberal media echo chamber rushed to judgment….A few weeks ago, after Smollett began telling his tale — in which he’s the hero fighting oppression and hatred — a 1-year-old child was shot in the head.
It looked like a street gang may have been targeting his mother. She’s been shot before. The child, Dejon Irving, is on life support.
I don’t think there were two dozen detectives assigned to Dejon Irving’s case. But he’s not a star to be used by politicians in pursuit of power. He’s not a symbol.
Politicians don’t tweet his name. He’s just a little boy from Chicago, shot in the head.”
Jack Ryan comments:
Yes, this is true. Gang bangers actually shooting 1 year old Black African American boys in the head in Chicago – nothing to see there move on to the next.
