Lori Lightfoot is still new at this whole “being the mayor” thing. Gun violence, a pandemic, and so many other things are being thrown at her. She wants to prove that she’s handling everything. She’ll go as far to the left as she can to prove it, too. Only, she may not be as woke as she thinks she is.
The Chicago mayor may need a lesson on being a problem-solver. If she’s going to personally devote time to take care of “problems,” then she needs to be careful.
She broke up the wrong party over the weekend, and people are calling her out on it.
So, if there are two problems in the city, a mayor would have to decide which one is the worst one. Gay beach party or violent protest. Hmmm, decisions, decisions.
The gay beach party on the lakefront wasn’t hurting anyone. Did it go against some social gathering protocols? Probably. But, the violent protests along the Magnificent Mile that was resulting in looting was the bigger problem.
Oh, no. Not according to Lori Lightfoot. That gay beach party at Montrose Beach was such a problem that she devoted personal attention to clearing it out. After all, the shirtless men having some fun near the LGBTQ-friendly Boystown needed to be shut down! There will be no fun in Chicago. You can only have fun if it involves illegal weapons and violence toward innocent shopkeepers.
If you’re woke, though, you know that discriminating against LGBTQ crowds is a no-no.
Well, someone better get out there to tell Lori Lightfoot. She didn’t just break up the party. She called everyone out on attending it, too. Her tweet included a photo of the festivities as well as this gem: “It’s called a pandemic, people. This reckless behavior on Montrose Beach is what will cause us to shut down the parks and lakefront. Don’t make us take steps backwards.”
She couldn’t even be pleasant about it. How about a warning? A little friendliness? Nope, she’ll just call them out for being peaceful.
Someone needs to say the same thing to her. Ms. Mayor, it’s called a pandemic. What about all of the reckless behavior happening all over the city? Apparently, beach parties aren’t okay but the protests that are leading to violence and looting are acceptable? Your far-left leanings are showing, Ms. Mayor.
The Mayor was also careful to make sure that she tweeted out that she “stopped by to see for myself” regarding the party at Montrose Beach. Great, well, why don’t you head down to some of the violent protests to see what that’s all about? Those shootings that keep making the headlines aren’t going to go away on their own.
She’s clearly not concerned about the violence. Instead, let’s make sure that those dangerous gay beachgoers stay away from Montrose Beach. They could catch a tan or something. In fact, she’s so incapable that she had a fence erected at Montrose Beach to ensure that there is no more summer fun happening on her watch. Absolutely not. Drop the beach ball. Leave the sunscreen. Head immediately home.
Oh, you protesters over there? How you doin’? Do you need some bottles of water to stay hydrated? Are you out of ammunition? Would you like some maps of our fine city so you know where you should loot next? The mayor might as well give the protesters a personal tour since it’s clear that she’s fine with all of their social gatherings. At least with the protesters, they have a defined purpose: destroy the country.
Yep, Lori Lightfoot is woke alright. She’s not putting up with the LGBTQ community and democracy, though. Instead, open to authoritarianism and the destruction of Chicago first, the country second. Way to go, Ms. Mayor. You sure showed those beachgoers who is boss.
