A Chicago city alderman exploded on a conference call with Mayor Lori Lightfoot over the city’s failure to contain mass rioting and looting on May 31st, pointing out that the violence and devastation was being entirely unchecked by city authorities.
Alderman Raymond Lopez’s conversation with the mayor descended to profanities, with both city officials cursing one another out after Mayor Lightfoot refused to give him an answer on her plans to stop the rioting and looting, which has been among the most severe in the country.
Listen to the leaked conference call here:
“Half our neighborhoods are already obliterated… My fear is that once they’re done looting and rioting- whatever’s going to happen tonight- What happens when they start going after residents? Going into the neighborhoods? I’ve got gangbangers with AK-47’s walking around right now. Just waiting to settle the score.”
Mayor Lightfoot merely tried to pivot to the next question, to which Lopez demanded that she address his concern.
“I think you’re a 100% full of s***, is what I think,” is what the mayor of one of America’s largest cities said in response to his concerns over rioting, largely dismissing his arguments that city government was proving both unable and unwilling to contain the mass criminality occurring throughout the city.
“F*** you, then. You need to check your f****** attitude,” snapped back the alderman.
May 31st proved to be one of the most violent days in the history of Chicago, with more than 18 murders on the Sunday and 27 over the weekend. Yet, Mayor Lightfoot seems focused on condemning the community patrols set up by a group of men in the city’s Bridgeport neighborhood, seeming to condemn the peaceful men as a more serious threat to the public than the hundreds or thousands of looters and rioters running amok throughout the city.
There don’t appear to be any imminent protests to call attention to Chicago’s descent into mayhem and little more than third world lawlessness.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
