85 Shot – 24 Dead in Chicago as City Sees Deadliest Day in 60 Years — As Democrats Continue to Call to Defund the Police

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit

The “mostly peaceful” leftist rioters in Chicago dragged police officers through the street and kicked them in the head last week.

The far left rioters and looters made Chicago’s Magnificent Mile look like Chicago’s Boarded Up Mile.

By last weekend the left was calling to defund the police in several US cities.

This past weekend Chicago suffered its most violent weekend of the year. Chicago saw its deadliest day in 60 years.

The Sun-Times reported:

Twenty-four people were killed and at least 61 others were wounded by gun violence in Chicago’s most violent weekend of the year so far, which also saw widespread protests, riots and looting throughout the city in the wake of the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd.

More than half of the weekend’s victims were shot on Sunday as the city reeled from violent protests Saturday night that led to hundreds of arrests and the implementation of a curfew.

Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said Monday that of the total fatal shootings over the weekend, 17 homicides occurred on Sunday alone. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed 15 for Sunday, with another three at unknown locations.

The weekend’s toll surpasses the tally from the same weekend in 2019, when 52 people were wounded — 8 fatally — in citywide gun violence.

    Chicago is now more violent than in the days of Al Capone and the Chicago Mob. That’s because those Italian mobsters — as despicable as they were — were “Altar Boys” compared to the average urban nigra of today. The latter kill each other over drug deals, wearing the wrong colors, being in a rival gang, or sometimes just for looking the wrong way at each other.

    Naturally, the nigras, communists and commie Jews who run Chicago have unconstitutionally DISARMED its law-abiding citizens, so only murderous black psychopaths are able to defend themselves. That’s always been a tactic of the left.

    That’s what one gets when they elect so-called “Democrats” to public office, a world turned upside -down and one reminiscent of “Alice in Wonderland.” George Will is correct about very few things, but he was right when he said “We get the kind of government we deserve.” At least Chicago did.

    Well, I guess that’s 24 Chicago residents who won’t be able to vote in November, in either Chicago or after that long bus-ride to Milwaukee…
