Chicago Mayor Condemns Anti-Looting Patrol as Rioters and Looters Run Amok

Don’t dare band together to stop crime.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot condemned city residents who banded together to deter possible acts of looting and vandalism on Wednesday.

“It is absolutely not appropriate for people to take up arms, bats, pipes, whatever in patrolling neighborhoods,” said Lightfoot at a Saturday press conference.

A group of men had formed in the city’s Bridgeport neighborhood as rioters ran wild and ransacked dozens of small businesses throughout Chicago. Many progressives immediately sought to shame the mostly white group of men on the basis of their race, pointing out with indignation that the group of men was largely cooperating with the Chicago police. There are no reports that the community patrol engaged in any violent acts.

Lightfoot went on to explain that the men’s peaceful community patrol was unacceptable in the eyes of city authorities.

We’ve seen that end with tragic results across the country and we’re not about to allow that practice to happen here in Chicago. If there’s an issue, call 911,” said the Democratic mayor, largely ignoring that the city’s police force was proving woefully incapable of preventing mass looting and rioting throughout Chicago. “I absolutely support neighbors being vigilant as to what’s going on on the streets and in their blocks but taking up arms, that leads to chaos and we’re not supporting vigilantism in the city of Chicago under any circumstances.

The City of Chicago is preparing to spend more than $1.2 million for the services of a private security company in the hopes of finally stopping the looting and criminal acts the city’s police department has proven unable or unwilling to prevent. But real community members who peacefully patrol together with non-lethal weapons with the objective of securing their own neighborhood- for free- are apparently beyond the pale.

Florida’s DeSantis Will Fly State Flags at Half Staff in Honor of Radio Legend Rush Limbaugh

Limbaugh was a Floridian.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis confirmed that he would issue an order to fly state and US flags at half staff in honor of radio legend Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh died earlier this week of cancer.

DeSantis spokeswoman Meredith Beatrice confirmed that the governor would issue the order after Limbaugh’s funeral arrangements are announced. The flags will be flown at half staff the day of the radio legend’s burial.

Originally a native of Missouri, Limbaugh moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in the late 1980’s. He became the most-listened to radio show host in the history of the United States, if not the world over the duration of his career.

Speaking of Limbaugh’s legacy Thursday on Fox News, DeSantis credited appearances on Limbaugh’s show as pivotal moments for his 2018 campaign for Governor of Florida.

He had me on when I was running for Governor,” DeSantis said. “I was getting the tar kicked out of me every day and he had me on the week before the election in 2018. He didn’t have a lot of guests. I was honored to be on his show a couple of times.

He would have been great in radio even without the conservative thing. He’s just that talented. Obviously he was a conservative icon up there with Scalia, Reagan, and Buckley,” said DeSantis of Limbaugh.

Florida Democrats have rushed to assail the Florida radio legend’s character and blast DeSantis for recognizing his life, accusing Limbaugh of being a “racist.”
