Lori Lightfoot is the ultimate victim

of voters unaccustomed to feeling the touch of violence!

The entire liberal, progressive, Woke enterprise can be understood as an oceans-deep trawl for victims. To the original victim class, black folk, the Linnaeus classification has been enlarged to include every woman — no longer do we hear them roar! Taxpayer-subsidized college students also wear the victim’s sackcloth (designer tho it be).

Father, forgive their debt, for they have borrowed.

We’re old enough to remember singing “We Shall Overcome.” Today’s cadres sing “We Shall BE Overcome.” Victimhood conveys status and 15 minutes on the bullhorn at the street rally. Just ask Jussie Smollett and Madison’s own Althea Bernstein.

So it came to pass that the mayor of America’s third-largest city is (fanfare please!) a victim! Lori Lightfoot is black, female, gay — and DEFEATED! By the cis-gendered white male establishment! The city that overwhelmingly elected the lady four years ago, gave her every precinct, is (it can now be revealed) MAGA country just like Juicy Smo-lee-ay said all along!  Lightfoot plays the race card face up to an appreciative Charles Blow in the New York Times: 

Lightfoot told me she understood that as a woman and as a person of color, “I’m always going to be viewed through a different lens.”

Paul Vallas, who led a nine-candidate field with 34% of the vote, ran a tough-on-crime campaign and promised to “take back our city.” Lightfoot called the remark “the ultimate dog whistle,” proving again that the lady has fleas.

“You’ve got the only white candidate in the race who’s acting like he’s going to be a great white savior on public safety.”

Charles Blow, New York Times

Only racists fear flying bullets

Stir your cafe au lait over this statement from Lori Light in the Foot: “People who are not used to feeling the touch of violence, particularly people on the North Side [Now THERE is a dog whistle!] of our city, they are buying what [Vallas] is selling.” Get it?! Its their fault that, under her watch, homicides in Chicago rose to their highest numbers in 25 years. 

Lori, if you want to play the race card, play it for the victims, 75.3% of whom were black (as were 70.5% of offenders).

Blow asks: “Are black mayors too quickly and easily blamed for rising crime, and if so, why? Because of an unwillingness to crack down on criminals or because of a more insidious, latent belief in ineffectual black leadership in times of crisis?” (Guessing voters who elected Eric Adams mayor of New York City would choose the “crack down on criminals” option.)

→ All 8 of Lightfoot’s challengers vowed to fire the police superintendent. Today, he quit. (Read & Cheer!)

Blaska’s Bottom Line: The progressive, big gummint enterprise needs victims as its feedstock. As Barack Obama lectured, You Did Not Build That. Big Gummint did. Sure enough, John Nichols is flacking for a “savvy” Chicago teachers union organizer who promises to tax the remaining billionaires out of town and further defund police. 

When will YOU get used to feeling the touch of violence?

  2. In my opinion, Lori Lightfoot has officially come out of the closet and revealed to the entire world that she’s an anti-white racist.

    My son decamped from the Twin Cities to stay in Chicago for the month of February “for a change of scenery.” BUT… today’s Wall Street Journal describes a Second City with a homicide rate FIVE TIMES as high as that of New York City in 2022.

    I’m going to advise that he get his restless butt back back to St. Paul.

    Also, methinks that at least some of these Windy City killers
    may decide sometimes to pay Madison a visit.

    “For a change of scenery.”

      That’s been going on for over 35 years; we’re dealing with their children and grandchildren, now.

        I assume by “dealing with” their grandchildren you mean dealing with them stealing cars, fleeing from police, crashing stolen those cars and then being released into the waiting arms of the “restorative justice” crowd while Madison’s white progressive elite plot the next move in their reparations agenda.

          But when you unpack it all like that, it’s none too flattering, heck, damaging to their coddled, entitled, gimmee gimmee VictimHoodie existences, even.

    A victim is too laughably inept to leverage her VictimHoody and ends up getting VictimHoodied?


    It gets worse.

    She couldn’t even cajole the parasitic CPS/Chicago Teachers Union bloodsuckers to violate city ethics ordinances, election law, and (likely) child labor laws by allowing her to…um…enlist students for Child Abusive SLAVE LABOR while stumping for her sorry @$$…FOR FREE…12 hours a week.

    One might opine “why not?” Based on a fact-based Reality, it’s not like they’ll miss out on anything remotely resembling actual learning in the classroom anyway, am I right?

    Anywho, and worse yet.

    She had the Lazy @$$ Blogge Idiot in her corner as a despicably sycophantic toady.

    Hard to believe voters wouldn’t swallow any of that and help her get it in the end zone, isn’t it?

    Perhaps not; end zones are Red Kyptonite to anything Chicago…

    WOW; all must be right with the Emerald City if the bitchie/righties are sooooo concerned about Chicago. They must have fixed the bike paths and speed limit signs that were keeping you all up all night.

      And just what is the topic Stevie. All I’ve seen is gay bashing, women bashing and race baiting. Jusr re-read the crotch’s comments


    • Mordecai The Red says:

      Yes, I’m concerned about Chicago because:

      1. I have friends and family that live there.
      2. I enjoyed visiting it before it became West Fallujah.
      3. Madison is within the blast zone of its crime policies.

      Sound reasonable?

    Funny how someone like Lori Lightfoot can publicly spew anti-white racist hate and never pay the consequences while a certain cartoonist says pretty much the same thing–except about blacks–and gets pilloried. Until the toxic sludge of identity politics and it attendant cult of victimhood is purged from the body politic, this country’s chasm of racial divide will continue to grow.

    “Long considered the electoral frontrunner, Ms. Lightfoot saw her lead evaporate as supporters became steadily more concerned about being murdered.

    “I just don’t want to die,” said local woman Brandi Buckingham. “I can look past a lot with Lori Lightfoot – the eyes, how she walks on all fours, all of it. I just can’t look past the whole murder thing…”

      I do believe. Just look at the last miracle. A poor chicken sandwich maker was given a $100 bill. He prayed to his Lord and that single bill was transformed into $215 million dollars worth of superbowl ads. And St. Roger praised the miracle and gave all the executives a raise.


  9. Mordecai The Red says:

    Every reason why Lori Lightfoot was given the boot was on full display in her comments in the NYT piece. The best thing anyone can say about her time in the mayor’s office is that she was incompetent.

    It takes NYT-level arrogance to lash out at people who vote to keep themselves safe. This line is especially rich:

    “On one level, the results of Tuesday’s election speak to how potent the issue of crime can be and how it can be used as a scare tactic.”

    People are scared of criminals? Well no sh!t, Sherlock.

    I grew up in Chicago (waited tables on Washington at The 95th). Washington was a competent Chicago Machine politician. The Machine got tired of Jane’s brass balls, so replaced her.

    Maybe the progressives can start by going after the Pritzker billions…that will be interesting.

    I am very happy to see that more and more people are waking up to Democratic wokeness and its implication for daily life.
