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.
Tucker Carlson Tonight is the Highest Rated Cable Television Show of All Time
There’s tremendous demand for Tucker’s rejection of mob authoritarian politics.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson achieved the highest ever ratings for a cable television program in the second quarter of 2020, receiving an average of 4.331 million nightly viewers for Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Fox News itself continue to crush its liberal media competitors, achieving an an average viewership of 3.574 million viewers. MSNBC and CNN lagged far behind with 1.999 million and 1.806 million.
Sean Hannity came in a close second place behind Tucker, receiving 4.311 million nightly viewers. Both primetime hosts are generally unafraid to confront the pervasive left-wing cultural authoritarian pervading through nearly every major American institution and media outlet.
The enduring popularity of Carlson’s show suggests a sizable appetite for commentary that wholly rejects the cultural authoritarianism of the political Left and the elite media, who have steadfastly demanded that Americans submit to the dictates of the Black Lives Matter movement. Carlson also is the only major American political commentator ready and willing to critique the nation’s major corporations and wealthiest individuals, providing a hearty challenge to the corrupt oligarchy that liberals and Democrats have increasingly become beholden and obedient to.
Carlson’s ratings also continue to surge after a litany of major corporations attempted to orchestrate a boycott operation against him. Multibillion dollar communications company AT&T is among the latest to try and incite an ad boycott against the ratings kingpin, citing Carlson’s opposition to immigration and pro-American worldview.
