Across the country, liberal mayors have turned a blind eye to widespread protests.
They do nothing, even as many of these “peaceful” demonstrations have devolved into riots.
The mayor of Chicago, Lightfoot, is no exception. She even criticized President Trump went he announced federal law enforcement would be used to protect the city.
Lightfoot even turned a blind eye to the estimated $60 million of damage to “Magnificent Mile.”
Finally, the mayor has ordered the arrests of these protesters—but only when they go too close to her house:
Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended banning protesters from her block, saying Thursday that she has received threats against her and her family…
“I’m not going to make any excuses for the fact that, given the threats I have personally received, given the threats to my home and family, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure they’re protected,” the mayor said. “I make no apologies whatsoever for that.”
How interesting. When protesters destroyed party of the city, Lightfoot did not strongly respond.
But she makes “no apologies” for arrest people who threaten her home and family.
So… is it okay for these protesters to threaten the lives of other people’s families? It seems like the mayor wasn’t too concerned with the danger these riots posed to other parts of the city.
Only when she and her home was in danger, did she actually move into action.
She isn’t even the first Democrat to do that. The mayor of Seattle called CHAZ a “block party” and refused to shut it down… until they stormed her neighborhood.
The mayor of Oakland was set to pass a bill to defund the police, until protesters stormed and vandalized her home. The next day, she vetoed the bill.
Liberals in rich, gated communities, urged the burning and destruction of other neighborhoods. But when rioters were trying to storm their Beverly Hills’ residents, they called them animals.
Seeing the pattern here? Because it’s common in everything the left does, these days.
One rule for we, another for thee. They have no problem when Antifa or BLM destroy a Target downtown. But when it comes to their homes, Democrats will call in SWAT if they have too.
That’s also true for nearly every policy Democrats push. Rich, entitled liberals will demand we vote for Democrats who will raise taxes, defund police, and open the border. But these same rich liberals will not be hurt, when these policies backfire.
It’s happening all around us. Mayor Lightfoot condemned Trump when he called for an end to the riots.
But when her house was being targeted, suddenly she’s all righteously indignant!
I doubt many Americans are left who believe this parody.
- Chicago Mayor Lightfoot ordered police to arrest protesters in her neighborhood.
- She previously refused to end riots and violence in other parts of the city.
- Lightfoot “made no apologies” but doesn’t appear upset about others who were hurt.
