Just a normal weekend .
Little to nothing said about the slaughter occurring in the democrat controlled cities.
Here's a good website for Shitcago;
16 of the most dangerous cities are dem controlled.
2 of those have independent (Faux dem) mayors.
1, Atlantic City has a repub mayor after decades of dem control.
The 4 top cities for per capita homicides are dem controlled.
No pattern here, eh?
Thank uou Ugenetoo. NIce find.
Chicago could be the perfect petri dish for gun confiscation. Go door to door search and seize ,confiscate every gun and prove that it will cause murder and crime rates to drop.........The present Chicago-Gary-Kenosha metropolitan area has a population over 9,157,540 persons spread over a 9000 square mile area.... A simple test......wonder who starts shooting first , the gangs, organized crime,antifa or law abiding gun owners.
Excellent idea, John. If you can't do it in a leftist bastion like Chicago, how could you do it anywhere else? And if it doesn't work there... why bother?
Two disturbed individuals shoot up two gun free zones in 24 hours with semiautomatic weapons with high capacity mags.
Meanwhile 80 million law abiding owners of similar weapons and mags used them in legal manners to protect themselves and their families.
People keep yapping about gun control. Well, one the most controlled, anti-gun, heavily policed, monitored, walled in "cities" in the world...American Federal prisons, cannot keep drugs, guns and other contraband out. Chicago is another great example of failure of our governments.
Another myth perpetrated by the lying leftist media is busted.
51% of Mass Shooters in 2019 Were Black: Only 29% Were White
Around the same time that the media was focused on the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, 60 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend. 24 of those people were shot in four hours.
Baltimore reached its 200th murder victim of the year during its “Ceasefire Weekend”.
4 people were killed in 4 days in Kansas City. 6 men were shot in Philly during the filming of a rap video.
Even in Toronto, 15 people were wounded in shootings over the weekend. Over 350 people have been shot this year in the Canadian city which has gun control, no NRA, and none of the usual excuses.
This tide of violence has received less media coverage because it challenges the false claim that, as a CNN op-ed once put it, mass shootings are a “white man’s problem.”
"I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country," Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed on Al Jazeera.
"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men," Don Lemon had previously claimed on CNN.
"White Men Have Committed More Mass Shootings Than Any Other Group," Newsweek had argued.
The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” lingers around the country because white mass shooters tend to get more publicity. And, the twisted young male who goes on a public shooting spree fits a certain kind of media narrative. But when we actually study the mass shootings that took place in 2019, it’s clear that Patrick Crusius and Connor Betts are not the norm, but aberrations.
Mass shooters have no particular ideology. Crusius and Betts were opposites ideologically. (Though both cared deeply about the environment.) Nor are mass shooters a white problem or a black problem. Over the same bloody weekend, William Patrick Williams, who is African-American, appeared in court after being arrested by the FBI for planning to shoot up a Texas hotel with an AK-47 rifle.
Looking at the data from the Mass Shooting Tracker, widely utilized by the media, as of this writing, of the 72 mass shooters, perpetrators in shootings that killed or wounded 4 or more people, whose race is known, 21 were white, 37 were black, 8 were Latino, and 6 were members of other groups.
51% of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29% were white, and 11% were Latino.
It's time for the progressives to put their our money where their mouths are...... Time for them to assume control of a major city, Chicago would be good and implement every one of their policies. make it gender diverse neutral , carbon /petroleum free,mass transit only,eco friendly housing , vegetarian food,non citizen voting, free college education for all, no GUNS ,no police (because they won't need any) guaranteed incomes , no flags, no churches , (mosques only) no white men,free health care ,no drug enforcement , raise taxes on all businesses, redistribute wealth ,make private property ownership illegal,free housing ,heat and electric, FREE FOOD.....and deport anyone who is not inline with their program and confiscate their property and wealth , .......BUT most of all prove to the rest of the country the validity of their beliefs.....make that big happy hive mentality a reality....
Just imagine the cluster F they could create.......
Ahh johnw , they already have.
No Bruce, they haven't done it yet.
The ONE thing Johnw allowed, the mosque, guarantees that sharia law would be implemented.
Once that is in place, the beheadings would begin.
Given time, the city would be quite orderly, albeit, empty.
I like Portland me too.... it's small enough so it could be a real Potemkin village...and as a bonus it's already got a certified village idiot for Mayor , comrade Ether Stringthing.
It was a beautiful summer weekend in Chicago. The city’s premiere summer music event — “Lollapalooza” — went off without a hitch, despite soaring temps and oppressive humidity.
There were the usual block parties, church socials, neighborhood bake sales…
And 11 people were gunned down in the streets, with 63 more wounded.
You might think these are “mass shootings” too, but, in political/media terms, they’re not treated as such. The victims, and in all likelihood the shooters, are black. And Democratic politicians find no political advantage in weaponizing the victims of everyday street violence in a Democratic town. So Chicago’s dead are stepped over by national media and national Democrats on the way to 2020.
It's not a "mass shooting" if 30 people are shot in three hours, as happened on Sunday in Chicago? If you can't pin it on Trump, those 11 dead and 63 wounded human beings simply don't exist.
Babies shot in Chicago? Poor people terrorized daily? Cops and paramedics pushed to the breaking point?
They’re largely forgotten. In political terms it’s all about those white boys with their guns.
Democrats wrap them around Trump’s neck, focusing on a key voter block, suburban white women with those “Hate Has No Home Here” signs. For two years, the left and media have shrieked unproven allegations about Trump and collusion with Russia. Now that has faded, Democrats adeptly find themselves on comfortable, familiar ground: race.
