Illinois State Senator Says Flash Mob
in Chicago Last Weekend Was a 'Mass Protest'
and a 'Political Act'

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 4/19/2023 12:43:13 PM

Last weekend, a flash mob of up to 500 Chicago young people — mostly teens — descended on downtown and began to burn cars, terrorize tourists, smash windows, and fight among themselves in a no-longer-shocking display of lawlessness and mayhem. Some Chicago leaders appeared frightened. “We’ve had more than our share of downtown mass arrest incidents going back over a decade. This is not new,” 2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins said. “What is new is to have it happen three days in a row.” The police were paralyzed and ended up quarreling with other agencies about who was in charge and who was at fault.


Part two is planned for this weekend so we'll see if the police have learned anything, doubtful though that may be.

It seems like the world no longer considers law and order to be something positive, let alone a priority. It's not a rebellion against the concept of law and order, though -- but against the particular order that has prevailed for centuries. As soon as the Left has reversed the ordering to give all the power to THEM, then the enforcement will become harsher, even absolute. And instead of fixing the problems, like they promise, it will make them orders of magnitude worse.

I don’t care if your a billionaire or as poor as a church mouse, one knows better then to destroy someone else’s property. Also knows that taking items from a store without paying is stealing! The taxpayer, store owner and business person is NOT the reason for poverty. They are being assaulted by these brats. Until these kids are prosecuted nothing is going to change. And don’t blame the police. They have no backing. They arrest a brat. Two hours later he is free to go out and steal or destroy things again. It’s all being done on purpose. Get rid of cops. No prosecutor who is not on the take would let these kids continue. No judge not on the take would not give the proper punishment. Something is not right. Who is helping to keep the crime rate up. And blame the police? Everyone one off these kids should be arrested and kept in jail. Then go get the parents.

Idiot politicians cry that the young thugs have been "starved of opportunities in their own communities". Of course, rioting, looting, vandalism, arson, and mayhem for three days opens opportunities and encourages businesses to hire these young hoodlums. Politicians always come up with creative excuses for the out of control crime in Chicago and manage to blame everyone but the criminals. Things will never get better until they admit they are the problem. Maybe they should apply the principals of the AA 12 Step program to themselves to help solve the crime problem. Step 1, admit you have a problem!

So much for the “it’ll blow over” philosophy the executives at Bud Light seemed to believe after stupidly sending offensive woman-appropriator Dylan Mulvaney a bunch of Bud Light cans with his face on them.

For all leftists, climate alarmists, and other dwellers in fantasy land, happy Earth Day! Unfortunately for “climate change” true believers, not only have climate predictions been consistently and wildly wrong for 50 years now, but “clean” or “green” energy is toxic for the environment, inefficient, and unprofitable. Unprofitable to everyone but the businessmen in charge lining their pockets while producing very little electricity, of course. Not to mention the politicians who justify increasing their control over land and lives by saying they’re “saving the planet.” And this time, after fifty years, they’re totally right about impending apocalypse. Just trust the “experts.”

Payton McNabb, a North Carolina high school volleyball player, is calling for a ban on transgender athletes after one spiked a ball into her face last fall allegedly causing a concussion and long-term physical and mental injuries. The transgender athlete was able to compete on a girls’ team at Hiwassee Dam High School in Murphy, NC, because of a policy put in place by the state’s high school athletic association. McNabb spoke at a press conference on Wednesday, calling on state legislators to pass the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, HB 574, that would ban biological males from competing on girls’ sports teams.

On Wednesday, Florida lawmakers passed a bill supported by Governor Ron DeSantis, which will allow for the death penalty to be imposed on individuals convicted of sexually abusing children. HB 1297, otherwise known as the Capital Sexual Battery law, provides the death penalty for certain child sexual offenders. Separate death penalty proceedings are required, with a jury making findings and recommendations on whether the defendant should be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole or to death. The bill from the Florida Legislature amends the law regarding sexual battery committed against children under the age of 12. The amendment provides for the possibility of imposing the death penalty

Well, this is disappointing news. The Washington Post reported Thursday that “the national Democratic Party has said it will support Biden’s reelection, and it has no plans to sponsor primary debates.” It’s understandable: the Dems have a president, of sorts, and so they’re counting on the power of incumbency to help their superannuated kleptocrat get over the top again. However, it’s also immensely disappointing, because after years and years of Democratic presidential debates being dreary displays of candidates trying to out-socialist one another, 2024 Democratic primary debates would have actually had something to offer.

Only just over a quarter of Americans want Joe Biden to run again in 2024, a new poll showed on Friday, citing concerns over his age. The 80-year-old commander-in-chief is expected to announce his bid for a second term on Tuesday. It means he would be 86 by the time he leaves office if he were to win re-election next year. And just 47% of registered Democrats they want him to run, up from 37% who backed Biden's candidacy in January.
