Democrat Privilege in Chicago or All Black Lives Matter but some Black Lives Matter more than others to the MSM

Offi­cer Mal­one: [stop­ping at a post office] Well, here we are.
Elliot Ness: What are we doing here?
Offi­cer Mal­one: Liquor raid.
Elliot Ness: [look­ing at the police sta­tion across the street] Here?
Offi­cer Mal­one: Mr. Ness, every­body knows where the booze is. The prob­lem isn’t find­ing it, the prob­lem is who wants to cross Capone.

The Untouch­ables 1987

We hear “White priv­i­lege” bandied about by the Demo­c­rat left as the source of all kinds of evil in the black com­mu­nity and we’ve equally heard the words “Black Lives Mat­ter” used as a club against police, repub­li­cans, con­ser­v­a­tives and any enemy of the left (and adopted as a name by anti-​police rad­i­cals) as they argue that these “priv­i­leged” groups don’t care about the lives of black Amer­i­cans and tar­get them for violence.

Now if you want to make a case that Black Amer­i­cans are tar­geted for vio­lence, there is no bet­ter exam­ple than the reac­tion to what hap­pened in Chicago last week­end.

A vio­lent week­end in Chicago left 10 peo­ple dead and dozens more wounded, police said.

Chicago Police Super­in­ten­dent Eddie John­son plans to hold a news con­fer­ence at 11 a.m. Monday.

How­ever, CPD says it has seen a city­wide reduc­tion in shoot­ings by 30 per­cent this year.

What’s really inter­est­ing in this story is the use of lan­guage in the embed­ded video, it’s “gun” vio­lence not “gang” vio­lence even though the dri­ver of this vio­lence are the gangs of Chicago.

The largest shoot­ing, which injured eight peo­ple, hap­pened in the South Side’s Gre­sham neigh­bor­hood as a group, includ­ing a 14-​year-​old girl, was stand­ing in a court­yard just before 12:40 a.m.

The crowd had gath­ered after attend­ing a funeral repass, said Fred Waller, Chicago police chief of patrol.

Dur­ing a Sun­day news con­fer­ence, Waller voiced frus­tra­tion at gang mem­bers whom he blamed for tak­ing advan­tage of large sum­mer crowds to use as cover to take revenge.

The gang mem­bers do not fear reper­cus­sions from the law, Waller said.

“They take advan­tage of that oppor­tu­nity and they shoot into a crowd, no mat­ter who they hit,” Waller said.

The press asked rad­i­cal catholic priest Fr. Michael Pfleger to com­ment. I’m not a big fan of Fr. Pfleger or his protest with­out a per­mit that John wrote about here Sun­day but he has a real point here

“It’s absolutely out­ra­geous. It’s a state of emer­gency in our city,” Pfleger said Sun­day in response to the series of mass shoot­ings ear­lier in the day. “Some­place else in the coun­try, the whole coun­try would be talk­ing about that this morn­ing. All world news and national news would be talk­ing about that. Four types of mass shoot­ings going on in Chicago with those num­bers, and it’s a week­end in Chicago, a rough week­end. No it’s not a rough week­end! It’s absolutely ridicu­lous. It’s unacceptable.”

He is cor­rect that the whole coun­try should be talk­ing about this, that the world news and the national news should be all over this and that the howls out out­rage should not stop until this vio­lence which is directed against Black Lives is stopped, but in once sense Fr. Pfleger is being disin­gen­u­ous when he decries this ear­lier in the piece as“gun vio­lence” because both he and I know the issue here isn’t guns, it’s gangs.

I also strongly sus­pect that Fr. Pfleger knows his cry for national media atten­tion to the issue will go unan­swered because these gang mem­bers and the Demo­c­rat pols who rule Chicago (the last GOP mayor left office in 1931) are the best of buddies:

Most alarm­ing, both law enforce­ment and gang sources say, is that some politi­cians ignore the gangs’ crim­i­nal activ­i­ties. Some go so far as to pro­tect gangs from the police, tip­ping them off to impend­ing raids or to sur­veil­lance activ­i­ties — in effect, cre­at­ing safe havens in their polit­i­cal dis­tricts. And often they chafe at back­ing tough mea­sures to stem gang activ­i­ties, advo­cat­ing instead for super­fi­cial solu­tions that may gar­ner good press but have lit­tle impact.

The para­dox is that Chicago’s strug­gle to com­bat street gangs is being under­mined by its own elected offi­cials. And the alliances between law­mak­ers and law­break­ers raise a trou­bling ques­tion: Who actu­ally rules the neigh­bor­hoods — our pub­lic ser­vants or the gangs?

That’s from a post I wrote on Mar­tin Luther King day in 2014 so is this

The irony of course is the fam­i­lies of the slain know the gangs are the dri­ving force behind the killings of their chil­dren, the prob­lem is with the gangs the source of polit­i­cal power on both the local & state level (how many gang gen­er­ated votes have helped keep Illi­nois blue?) there is no incen­tive for those enjoy­ing the finan­cial or polit­i­cal rewards to do a thing about it and as the gangs are largely of color, there is no reward for the pro­fes­sional dem­a­gogues nation­ally to do so either.

The media know what the source of the vio­lence is but to report on it means acknowl­edg­ing two things harm­ful to the Demo­c­rat party

  1. That it’s black on black gang vio­lence, not rogue cops or white rad­i­cals that has been prey­ing on the black cit­i­zens of Chicago for decades
  2. That Democ­rats have for decades pro­tected these killers for the sake of keep­ing power not only on the city level but to pro­vide votes on the state and fed­eral level

If the gangs had been white or the pols in bed with these gangs had been­re­pub­li­cans, the media’s hue and cry would be never end­ing and the good folks of CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYT and Wash­ing­ton Post would not rest until national action was taken and a parade of pun­dits and activists from Black Lives Mat­ter and other racial groups would be demand­ing action for the vic­tims of this sense­less slaugh­ter and those who per­pet­u­ate it both behind the trig­ger by their actions and those in office pro­tect­ing them to be brought to justice.

Alas for the black cit­i­zens of Chicago liv­ing in fear or dying in agony as it’s not 1931 and their plight can’t be blamed on rogue cops, or white man named Capone, or Trump sup­port­ers in MAGA hats or a cor­rupt GOP Mayor or pol, in fact their deaths don’t fit any of the media’s pre­ferred nar­ra­tives so said media and the liberal/​radical activists like Black Lives Mat­ter who they pro­mote have decreed the dead of Chicago shall remain a local story to be briefly noted, regret­ted, and then ignored.

After all one can’t risk high­light­ing gang vio­lence or cor­rupt Chicago pols when a story like that could strengthen Pres­i­dent Trump’s hand nation­ally in an elec­tion year.

Call it “Demo­c­rat privilege”.

Elliot Ness: What are we doing here?

The Untouchables 1987

We hear “White privilege”  bandied about by the Democrat left as the source of all kinds of evil in the black community and we’ve equally heard the words “Black Lives Matter” used as a club against police, republicans, conservatives and any enemy of the left (and adopted as a name by anti-police radicals) as they argue that these “privileged” groups don’t care about the lives of black Americans and target them for violence.

Now if you want to make a case that Black Americans are targeted for violence, there is no better example than the reaction to what happened in Chicago last weekend.

A violent weekend in Chicago left 10 people dead and dozens more wounded, police said.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson plans to hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Monday.

However, CPD says it has seen a citywide reduction in shootings by 30 percent this year.

What’s really interesting in this story is the use of language in the embedded video, it’s “gun” violence not “gang” violence even though the driver of this violence are the gangs of Chicago.

The largest shooting, which injured eight people, happened in the South Side’s Gresham neighborhood as a group, including a 14-year-old girl, was standing in a courtyard just before 12:40 a.m.

The crowd had gathered after attending a funeral repass, said Fred Waller, Chicago police chief of patrol.

During a Sunday news conference, Waller voiced frustration at gang members whom he blamed for taking advantage of large summer crowds to use as cover to take revenge.

The gang members do not fear repercussions from the law, Waller said.

“They take advantage of that opportunity and they shoot into a crowd, no matter who they hit,” Waller said.

The press asked radical catholic priest Fr. Michael Pfleger to comment.  I’m not a big fan of Fr. Pfleger or his protest without a permit that John wrote about here Sunday but he has a real point here

“It’s absolutely outrageous. It’s a state of emergency in our city,” Pfleger said Sunday in response to the series of mass shootings earlier in the day. “Someplace else in the country, the whole country would be talking about that this morning. All world news and national news would be talking about that. Four types of mass shootings going on in Chicago with those numbers, and it’s a weekend in Chicago, a rough weekend. No it’s not a rough weekend! It’s absolutely ridiculous. It’s unacceptable.”

He is correct that the whole country should be talking about this, that the world news and the national news should be all over this and that the howls out outrage should not stop until this violence which is directed against Black Lives is stopped, but in once sense Fr. Pfleger is being disingenuous when he decries this earlier in the piece as”gun violence” because both he and I know the issue here isn’t guns, it’s gangs.

I also strongly suspect that Fr. Pfleger knows his cry for national media attention to the issue will go unanswered because these gang members and the Democrat pols who rule Chicago (the last GOP mayor left office in 1931) are the best of buddies:

Most alarming, both law enforcement and gang sources say, is that some politicians ignore the gangs’ criminal activities. Some go so far as to protect gangs from the police, tipping them off to impending raids or to surveillance activities—in effect, creating safe havens in their political districts. And often they chafe at backing tough measures to stem gang activities, advocating instead for superficial solutions that may garner good press but have little impact.

The paradox is that Chicago’s struggle to combat street gangs is being undermined by its own elected officials. And the alliances between lawmakers and lawbreakers raise a troubling question: Who actually rules the neighborhoods—our public servants or the gangs?

That’s from a post I wrote on Martin Luther King day in 2014 so is this

The irony of course is the families of the slain know the gangs are the driving force behind the killings of their children, the problem is with the gangs the source of political power on both the local & state level (how many gang generated votes have helped keep Illinois blue?) there is no incentive for those enjoying the financial or political rewards to do a thing about it and as the gangs are largely of color, there is no reward for the professional demagogues nationally to do so either.

The media know what the source of the violence is but to report on it means acknowledging two things harmful to the Democrat party

  1.  That it’s black on black gang violence, not rogue cops or white radicals that has been preying on the black citizens of Chicago for decades
  2.  That Democrats have for decades protected these killers for the sake of keeping power not only on the city level but to provide votes on the state and federal level

If the gangs had been white or the pols in bed with these gangs had beenrepublicans, the media’s hue and cry would be never ending and the good folks of CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYT and Washington Post would not rest until national action was taken and a parade of pundits and activists from Black Lives Matter and other racial groups would be demanding action for the victims of this senseless slaughter and those who perpetuate it both behind the trigger by their actions and those in office protecting them to be brought to justice.

Alas for the black citizens of Chicago living in fear or dying in agony as it’s not 1931 and their plight can’t be blamed on rogue cops, or white man named Capone, or Trump supporters in MAGA hats or a corrupt GOP Mayor or pol, in fact their deaths don’t fit any of the media’s preferred narratives so said media and the liberal/radical activists like Black Lives Matter who they promote have decreed the dead of Chicago shall remain a local story to be briefly noted, regretted, and then ignored.

After all one can’t risk highlighting gang violence or corrupt Chicago pols when a story like that could strengthen President Trump’s hand nationally in an election year.

Call it “Democrat privilege”.
