Chicago Mayor Blames Gun Violence On Guess Who…

I don’t think highly of Lyndon B. Johnson. Thousands of Americans lost their lives as a result of Lyndon B. Johnson’s decision to retain Robert McNamara as Secretary of Defense and the primary planner of the Vietnam War, along with their incredibly stupid Rules of Engagement. Johnson came from a corrupt political structure that was similar to the corruption of Tammany Hall. He was an unrepentant bully and liar who won his first run for national office by flagrantly manipulating the election process. For Democrats, however, LBJ is still a hero. Why? He has been promoting the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

An admirable concept was the Civil Rights Act. It prohibited racial discrimination on paper. That same year, Johnson launched a war on poverty, which had little effect on rescuing the impoverished, but it did establish a dependency structure that continues to this day. After spending $15 trillion, all that America has to show for its efforts is a dependency state that has existed for 60 years. Johnson’s campaign against poverty, akin to the Vietnam War, faced doom from the outset.

Richard Nixon won with a landslide of votes when Johnson withdrew from his bid for a second term. The general public tends to overlook Nixon’s civil rights legacy because Watergate marred and defined his presidency. How did the Nixon administration handle civil rights issues?

Nixon raised funding for historically black universities; by 1972, it had climbed to $600 million from $75 million in 1969.

The $1.5 million Emergency School Aid Act, which was not a Johnson initiative, aimed to abolish school segregation. Nixon was the one who initiated it.

Nixon issued executive orders requiring the federal government to implement equal-opportunity policies in employment rules and practices. Research on sickle-cell anemia received $12 million from Nixon. Federal purchases from black-owned companies increased by 900 percent during his first term in office. Johnston’s term covered less than $13 million. It grew to $142 million during the Nixon years.

Despite his flaws, Nixon gave the impression that he was “all in” on correcting some of the country’s historical wrongs in the areas of racism and racial relations.

People who are ignorant would argue that Nixon took no action or, even worse, exacerbated the division. To argue that Richard Nixon is to blame for black men shooting each other down in Chicago would require an extreme level of ignorance. Still, I present to you Brandon Johnson, the man who works in the mayor’s office in Chicago.

As we pointed out before, within the first six months of his administration, Johnson demonstrated signs of being even more incompetent than Mayor Lightfoot.

“But as the unwoke types predicted, Johnson has, astonishingly, been even worse than Lightfoot, with a lenient stance against juvenile repeat offenders and a nonsensical plan for handling the flood of illegal immigrants that has infuriated locals to the point of tears and sparked some pretty contentious public gatherings.”

Johnson felt his knee jerk so violently that it struck his mouth. He attributed his own mishandling of the influx of illegal aliens into his sanctuary city to bigotry and, naturally, Republicans.

“Johnson has some of the lowest approval ratings of any mayor in Chicago’s history.” He’s doing what any decent little woke Democrat would do as a result: for his unsuccessful leadership of the Windy City, place the blame on so-called “right-wing extremists/racists.”

After six months and a full year in office, Johnson now faces off against a new adversary—this time, a deceased Republican named Richard Nixon. Johnson cried as he hailed LBJ and blamed Nixon for the uncontrollable gun carnage in the city. There were 18 weekend deaths, and 90 were taken to hospitals instead of the morgue. Nixon is to blame, not Johnson.

If we could just find the genie and stop using the cliched race card games, wouldn’t it be nice? It’s hardly surprising that we can’t find a solution when elected officials make irrational accusations. Sadly, it seems that the only thing incompetent idiots like Johnson can do when elected is play the racial card. Even for Johnson, blaming a deceased politician who hasn’t held public office for fifty years sounds like a new low. It’s also a disregard for history, but facts aren’t always crucial. Not to Brandon Johnson, anyhow.
