Read the crime news from America’s major cities for last weekend. You can read Chicago’s below. Read about New York City crime, Kansas City, Philadelphia, and DC crime. What do they all have in common? Mass murder of Americans by other Americans in cities that have become shooting galleries. What do these cities also have in common? They are run by the thoughtless dilettanti and purblind worldlings who are in command of the Democrats. This is no coincidence.
Voters can read the news and watch television. They see the murders on a daily basis. They know what Democrat municipal leadership has wrought. In hatred of law enforcement and economic malfeasance these effete yet brutish (quite a trick) Democrat city halls have troubled their own house and thus have inherited the wind.
But still a majority of voters in these towns, even the ones victimized most through crime, keep voting for blood-soaked Democrats. There is only one conclusion. Most of America’s major cities are suicidal.
The death wish of these cities is palpable. For crime goes along with corruption, urban blight, garbage, and public health standards in keeping with the worst of the Middle Ages. But still Democrats are elected. Is this deep masochism, this lemming quality, this self-abuse hidden and thus hard to see by voters? No. It is around them in their neighborhoods, downtown in their shops, and especially prevalent in the inner cities. Those who decry the fate of America’s poor never actually talk about anything but the material. They forget, you can’t pick up a Covid stimulus check if you were shot dead over the weekend.
Correction: as of yesterday homicides are up 36% in Philadelphia compared to 2020 due to additional homicides reported last night https://t.co/qkk9GWcveA

FNC: “More than 45 people were shot, including a 14-year-old boy, and seven were killed in Chicago citywide over the weekend, police said Monday. There were 36 shootings reported from 6 p.m. Friday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday, while at least two others were stabbed, including one victim who succumbed to his injuries, Chicago Police Department said. Information released by the authorities so far indicates the slain victims ranged in age from 17 to 37.
“The youngest person killed, a 17-year-old male, was driving a car around 3 p.m. Sunday when one or more shooters opened fire, causing the teenager to suffer at least one gunshot wound to his face, police said. He then crashed his car into a light pole. The teen was rushed to a local hospital but could not be saved, police said. Of the 46 people shot, the youngest victim to survive, a 14-year-old boy, was on the sidewalk in the city’s Grand Crossing neighborhood shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday when he was shot in the hand and calf and also suffered a graze wound to his head, police said. He was taken to a local children’s hospital and police are still looking for his attacker.
“Meanwhile, police said a body was discovered in the water near the 1400 block of South Sacramento Drive at about 5:15 p.m. Saturday. Police did not immediately provide any additional information regarding the incident.” Whst can be done now? Nothing. Cities like Chicago are in the grip of a suicidal urge evidenced by the consistent election of Democrats. As such, they get what they deserve.
