The new national narrative is that everything is to be blamed on “right wing extremism.” Hell, it’s the new international narrative as the governments of France and Ireland are spouting this nonsense after “religion of peace” adherents are stabbing teenagers and six-year-old children.
Democrat Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson blamed “right-wing extremism” for some of the ills facing his crime-ridden city.
Johnson issued his statement about the “far right” during a press conference on Tuesday.
“What we’ve seen is a very raggedy form of right-wing extremism”‘ the mayor said. “Everyone knows that the right-wing extremism in this country has targeted democratically run cities, and quite frankly, they have been quite intentional about going after democratically ran cities that are led by people of color.”
He carefully conflates “democratically” run cities with Democrat-run cities. All cities are run democratically through elections. Not all are run by Democrats. But yes, those like Chicago run by radical Democrats like Groot (Lightfoot) and Let’s Go Brandon (Johnson), and backed by the radical Democratic Socialists on the City Council that give you cesspools like Chicago. “Shitholes” as one famous politician once said in mixed company.
The mayor even said that such “right-wing extremists” aim to create “division and chaos because that is what that particular political party has been about.”
The last time a Republican was in charge of Chicago was 1931. The last “Republican” aldercreature was that guy up north in the 41st Ward we think. The last county-wide office held by a Republican was probably O’Malley in the States Attorneys Office. We might be mistaken, but not by much.
Then Blowie gets nasty:
“It is the same party that wouldn’t accept that President Obama was actually an American. It’s the same Republican right-wing extremism that stormed the capital, it’s the same right-wing extremism that refuses to accept the results of the civil war. It’s raggedy. It’s disrespectful. It’s mean-spirited,” he said.
“It is abysmal and it is an affront to everything that is good about this country for the extremism in this country to use people as political tools to settle political scores for something that happened over 400 years ago. They’re still mad that a black man is free in this country,” he added.
All sane persons, including Trump, abandoned that canard long ago. No one “stormed” the Capitol as the now released videos show Capitol Police opening doors and escorting people inside. Those not accepting the results of the Civil War were democrats with their white-robed antifa supporters and a Republican president had to send the US Army to desegregate (corrected) schools when the Dixiecrats blockaded the doors.
Blowie isn’t just a weak-minded tool on the verge of another nervous breakdown, he’s an ignorant asshole stoking racial divisions in a desperate attempt to regain an approval rating that is already lower than Groot.
At the same time, Johnson’s race-baiting is the best card he’s got left in his pathetic hand. He’s tossing it out hoping that the low-information voters who elected his sorry ass will accept his lame excuse making as they continue to reap the whirlwind consequences of voting for a radical communist agitator for mayor along with more of the same onto the Chicago City Council.
