SLEAZY JB PRITZKER: Horse-trading people of color to gain more power

February 11, 2018


JB Pritzker, the billionaire Democrat who wants to add ‘Illinois Governor’ to his resume, apologized for his “racially insensitive” remarks about African-American politicians in 2008.  In short, Prizker termed Illinois’ Secretary of State the “least offensive” African-American to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Hussein Obama.  As though African-Americans are offensive.  

Then again, maybe African-Americans are offensive to billionaires like JB Pritzker.  Perhaps old JB only likes them when he can use them and their support when he wants to increase his own personal power.  The rest of the time?  Well, private conversations do tend to reveal the real person.  Character is what you do when you think nobody is looking.  And JB's character seems lacking when it comes to treating African-Americans as equals.

The gun-grabber Pritzker apologized for his candid remarks about blacks not because his conscience was bothering him, but because his crass comments on federal wiretaps came up in his campaign for Governor of Illinois.  In other words, he got caught – in his own words – denigrating black folks.

Chicago (Tribune) – Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker issued a public apology Tuesday, saying he regretted remarks he made about African-American politicians with then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich during a 2008 discussion about filling Barack Obama’s U.S. Senate seat.

…Pritzker tells Blagojevich a White appointment will “cover you on the African-American thing” and that White is the “least offensive” among candidates for the job. Speaking about other options, Pritzker refers to then-state Senate President Emil Jones as “crass” and then-U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. as a “nightmare.” Pritzker and Blagojevich later mimic the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s controversial pastor whose inflammatory rhetoric had become a campaign issue in the 2008 presidential contest.

What's more (!), Prizker continues to exploit people of color in his quest for power.  From the Tribune:

"I’ve tried really hard through the course of my life to do the right things for the African-American community and for communities across Illinois,” Pritzker said at a West Side restaurant, flanked by black elected officials including Secretary of State Jesse White, City Treasurer Kurt Summers and Aldermen Pat Dowell, Michael Scott and Walter Burnett.

The wiretap recordings, which Prizker would no doubt like to forget about, detail Pritzker’s attempt to worm himself into high public office through an appointment.  “That’s the one I would want,” Pritzker says of the Illinois Treasurer position.  

We call that attititude "entitlement" among regular folks. 

An additional point to ponder:  What if Donald Trump said the things that JB Prizker said in those recordings!?  You think Trump's alleged (courtesy of less-than-reliable old Senator Dick Durbin) "sh*thole" comment inflamed the left?  

JB Pritzker would rather talk about gun control than his dim view of African-Americans.  Here's his position on guns as reported by the Chicago Tribune:

He touted his support for universal background checks, state gun-dealer licensing, a ban on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks.

Of course, as a radical supporter of gun control, JB Prizker can't say what he really means in public about guns any more than he can about blacks.  Translating his gun control platform into English:  JB Prizker wants to ban the private sale of firearms, run most gun sellers except the big box stores out of business and ban most semi-auto firearms and standard capacity magazines, which are very useful when allowing ordinary Illinoisans to fight off more than one attacker.  After all, if semi-auto firearms and standard capacity magazines weren't effective doing just that, most cops would still carry revolvers! 

And he wants to ban bump stocks, for good measure.  Because those turn up at crime scenes so often.  Almost like bayonets.

Because all of JB's gun control measures, if enacted, would stop the senseless, black-on-black gang violence that plagues Chicago…  

Right.  And you've won $62 billion in the Nigerian National Lottery.  If you'll just send us your bank account information and bank routing number, we'll wire it to your account!  Congratulations!

    Great article, this guy looks and acts sleezy and him being a multi–billionare that wants to "over-tax the rich"  (aka: taxpayers) while hiding his own wealth proves it. If he really believed in his "tax the rich" blather wouldn't he voluntarily donate much of his wealth to the state out of "principle"? After all he doesn't "need" all that wealth to live a reasonable life, does he?

    Was that Stewie from Family Guy I saw behind him playing the tuba?

    JB Pritzker sounds like he thinks blacks make good servants, not good leaders.  His words today lack all sincerity to my ears.

    And old JB will put us all on the Democrat plantation if elected governor.  Lyndon Banes Johnson would be proud, I'm sure.

    Nevermind how Trump has lowered black unemployment levels to historic lows rolling back Obama's hard-left Democrat policies.

    If he were a Republican, anyone think all of the blacks would be standing by him like they did with him? I didn't think so.

    JB is a plantation owner.  Who has to keep his slaves on the plantation.  And there are no shortage of Uncle Toms to help him.  Because that gives them a seat at the power table, while the slaves live in hopeless poverty.

    I expect this clown to get a complete pass because he is a Democrat.

    Now if he was a Republican there would be an up-roar of monumental proportions.  

    Durbins and Duckworth loves this guy cause he's anti-gun. 

    Question to posters; Whats your opinion of Reps Jeanne Ives? 

    Can she win against this clown. Or does Rauner still have chance? 


    • JR on February 12, 2018 at 7:06 pm

      While I fully support Jeanne Ives. I believe she is far too conservative for this state. She'll have a tough time of it since she's running against at least three big money libs.

      The first is Slender Man (Rauner) who may unfortunately win the Republican nomination. Then on the Dum's side it will be between the guy who may have a glandular condition or the left coast elitist  who believes he has everything in common with a poor fatherless black child.

      Of course all this really doesn't  matter because of the policies of the Dum's will make sure of the continuing exodus of people out of the state of Illinois.

        Thank you for your informed reply. 

        We need to honest answers like yours if we are going to any chance of saving our state.
