Ignoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday welcomed the army of men dispatched to the streets by Farrakhan to stop the violence in Chicago neighborhoods.
Ald. Debra Silverstein (50th), an Orthodox Jew, has said it’s good that Farrakhan is “helping” in the fight against crime, “but it doesn’t eradicate the comments that he’s made about the Jewish community.”
Emanuel offered no such caveat. Although Farrakhan has a history of making anti-Semitic statements, Chicago’s first Jewish mayor has no interest in revisiting that controversy.
Emanuel goes after Chick-fil-A for boss’ anti-gay views
The anti-gay views openly espoused by the president of a fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches have run afoul of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local alderman, who are determined to block Chick-fil-A from expanding in Chicago.
but he's ok to release an army of bigots into the streets. LOL What a dumb fuck, he should be impeached on the spot.
I am certainly no Rahm fan. In my opinion, the guy represents all that is wrong with politics. But if anyone offers to help stop the violence in the streets of Chicago and innocent blood being spilled, I am certainly ok with it.
Now, if you want to argue whether this will work or not, that is a whole different ball game.
Your modern democrat party at work. And let's not forget, this guy was obama's chief of staff and is part of the same machine that produced obama.
So how exactly are Farrakhan's thugs going to stop the violence? By busting a few heads? What happens when they commit some crimes in their new role as vigilantes? Or has Rahm just ceded politicla control over to them in these areas? I wonder if they will collect taxes and ordr women to wear muslim garb?
Liberals are trmebling with rage over the idea that George Zimmerman patrolled his own neighborhood, but they think this is a good idea.
As for Chik-fil-a, we see how much the democrats respect the First Amendment. Now a guy can be punished for being a Christian. It's scary, but this is what you get with this crowd. I shudder to think what obama will do if he gets reelected.
