Whomever was the architect of the #GeorgeFloydRiots, they obviously anticipated the traditional “mostly peaceful” protests that always morph into mass property damage, injury and death. The problem is Democrats are real good at creating problems but are consistently devoid of realistic remedies to the devastation they inflict on their constituents.
Such frustration finally boiled over.
As looters were ransacking businesses throughout the city more than a week ago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Ald. Raymond Lopez (15th Ward), one of her harshest critics, engaged in an angry and foul-mouthed argument over the city’s handling of the widespread violence.
During a conference call with all 50 aldermen on May 31 to discuss the city’s response to the looting, Lopez accused the mayor of being unprepared when looting spread from downtown to the neighborhoods that weekend.

That’s putting it mildly….
Remember this when people who oppose this progressive anarchy are called every possible pejorative while the progressive, Democrat-elected, defending the rioters and looters, demand we all show civility and engage in constructive dialogue.
