Chicago is in the midst of a surge in violent crime and murder which last week prompted Mayor Lori Lightfoot to respond by:
- Removing a Christopher Columbus statue at 3 a.m. after 49 police were injured defending it from rioters.
- Publicly insulting Chicago’s police union president
- Refusing assistance from federal troops
- Blaming Republicans.
Civil rights activist Bob Woodson in an interview last week noted that Democrats “had to spend about $22 trillion on poverty money in the cities and as a consequence, all of these inequities that they have been talking about have been done on their watch.”
“When low-income Blacks wake up and realize that they are being bamboozled and hustled and scammed by people like Lori Lightfoot and others — they are going to realize that they must address the enemy within.”Bob Woodson
