(ConservativePeak.com)- Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the disgraced Democratic mayor of Chicago, recently described the ongoing violent riots and looting in her city as mostly “peaceful.” Lightfoot has shot into the national spotlight in recent months as a result of the extreme left-wing riots that have taken over her city, combined with the rapidly rising crime rates and tragic gun crime engulfing many parts of the city.
Oh, and the reason she’s disgraced? It’s not just one thing. For one, she was caught getting her hair styled during lockdown after warning residents of her city not to break lockdown rules. Secondly, we can’t forget how she refused to request support from the National Guard when the city was first attacked by Black Lives Matter extremists.
She chose not to request support because it would prove Trump right, and she wouldn’t let that happen…
On Sunday’s episode of “Face the Nation” on CBS, Mayor Lightfoot said that the “Vast majority” of the protests taking place in her city were “peaceful,” in an attempt at downplaying the damage being done. Last Monday, however, Chicago’s bridges had to be raised and the public transport network shut down to stop even more people joining in with the riots and looting.
On Saturday, the day before her interview, some 17 officers were injured in her city and 24 extremist rioters arrested after those “peaceful” protests turned violent.
“Unfortunately, what we’ve seen in cities all across the country, not just Chicago, is a continuing wave of protests,” she said. “The vast majority of these have been peaceful.”
The problem with this claim is that it means nothing. Right? Does it matter if they are “mostly peaceful” when a huge section of these protests has involved horrific violence, looting, burning down churches, and destroying private property. At what point does “mostly peaceful” become “violent”?
“But what we’ve also seen is people who have embedded themselves in these seemingly peaceful protests and have come for a fight,” she added, seemingly misunderstanding their entire purpose of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. She knows that left-wing activists regularly turn to violence, right?
Interestingly, she also praised the police…the people her party doesn’t want to be properly funded.
“He was 28 years old and was on the job for just over two years with his whole life and career ahead of him. He was well-liked and highly regarded by his fellow officers. While the police continue to investigate this horrific incident, which is being investigated as a homicide, our hearts and prayers are with Correction Officer Jeff’s family and his fellow officers at AMKC during this painful time,” she explained.
Who, exactly, does she think she is fooling?
