Chicago Loss #42: Hadiya Pendleton

Big Government


The heartbreaking gun violence the media chooses to ignore because there would be no political upside in reporting it, continues unabated in Obama’s Chicago — a city run only by Democrats and unions, and with some of the toughest gun controls in the country (see why the media ignores it?). Already this year, 41 people have been murdered in the Windy City, a ten-year record. Yesterday, 15 year-old Hadiya Pendleton was number 42.

Hadiya wasn’t a drug dealer or gang member or any kind of troublemaker, as far as we know. She was a lovely, young honor student who enjoyed the privilege of performing with her school band at President Obama’s inauguration earlier this month. Yesterday, after an exam, she was gunned down in a Chicago park known to be frequented by gang members.

As I write this, all three cable networks are broadcasting wall-to-wall coverage of congressional gun control hearings. Obama and the Democrats and the media are currently on a crusade to pass laws that would have done nothing to stop the Sandy Hook massacre that supposedly inspired this crusade. And if the slaying of Hadiya Pendleton ends up being what it looks like, those laws would have done nothing to save her young life.

You see, Democrats and their media aren’t all that concerned with hundreds upon hundreds of poor, mostly minority, gun-violence victims in Chicago. Because, in order to make such a thing a national cause, they must explain why a city completely controlled by Democrats isn’t working; why a place where suffocating gun controls are in place is experiencing record murder rates; why what on paper should be a Liberal Utopia is a near-bankrupt hell-hole.

    Exactly 1.4 miles from Obama’s Chicago home.

    But don’t worry. Rahm is going to announce new efforts to stop the violence.

    Apparently the existing efforts aren’t enough –

    Perhaps Chicago needs some black helicopters… Whoops, was that racist?

    The end of the article mentioned that these people are sacrifices for the cause. I belive this is exactly what they are counting on. And sacrifices will continue until they are victorious.

    Somebody needs to put a gun to the heads of Piers Morgan, Brian Williams, Diane Sawer, Joe Scarborough and all the other libstain media types, and force them to read this article on the air!

    if chicagos enforcement of gun laws is anything like what we are going to have now, whats the point?

    from dnainfo.com

    “It’s getting easier to get away with shooting people in Chicago.

    Last year, gunmen who shot and wounded someone got away without criminal charges 94 percent of the time, according to a DNAinfo.com Chicago analysis of police data.

    That’s even worse than 2011, when 91.5 percent of shooters escaped charges, according to the data.”

    End of the article: ‘And if you’re wondering how they (MSM) sleep at night, that’s an easy one. The murdered in Chicago aren’t victims; they’re sacrifices to The Cause.’

    and they’re black. That’s mainly how the MSM sleep at night. When will blacks wake up?

    After his death, Rahm Emanuel found himself with the devil in a room filled with clocks. Each clock turned at a different speed and was labeled with the name of a different city.

    After examining all the clocks, Rahm turned to the devil and said, “I have two questions. First, why does each clock move at a different speed?”

    “They turn based on each city’s murder rate,” replied the devil.

    “What’s your second question?”

    “Well,” said Rahm. “I can’t seem to find Chicagp. Where is the Chicago clock?”

    The devil momentarily looked confused, and he started checking the clocks. “They should all be here,” he muttered, looking frantically, “It has to be here somewhere… Oh, there will be Hell to pay for this.”

    Suddenly, the devil relaxed, slapped himself on the forehead, and exclaimed, “Oh, yes! How silly of me. We keep that clock in the workshop and use it for a fan.”
