You really have to hand it to mayor Lori (Beetlejuice) Lightfoot, she has trained the criminal element of her city to expect no resistance.
On Monday a Chicago animal casually strolled into a convenience store with a shotgun held down by his leg away from the clerk. He looks around before turning back to the clerk to begin his robbery.
And there things go right. The clerk had some situational awareness and had noticed the animal taking the shotgun from his car before entering the store. He armed himself and waited to see what the animal would do.
Sure enough he came inside hoping to redistribute the wealth.
When he noticed that the clerk was armed and willing to use his own firearm he started babbling “I’m from Chicago Bro. I don’t know anybody down here. I’m from Chicago.”
The encounter ended with the would be robber exiting, being extra careful that the muzzle of his shotgun never stopped pointing straight down.
Understand that the Biden Administration is everything that the Democrats accused the Trump Administration of being.
That includes being viciously antisemitic.
Orthodox Jews say they were excluded from White House hate-crimes summit
President Biden slammed antisemitism last week at a White House-hosted “United We Stand” summit against hate crimes, but he is being accused by some Orthodox Jewish leaders of excluding them from the event.
The Rev. Al Sharpton requested the summit after the May massacre of 10 black shoppers in Buffalo, and it brought together hundreds of activists and community leaders from minority groups. But Orthodox Jews, who suffer a large number of hate crimes, struggled to make the cut.
It’s very easy for Leftists to condemn antisemitism when they don’t have to actually be in the room with any of those icky Jews.
The Left ostensibly “likes” Jews when they are dead, or victims they can use as cudgel against the right, or not really acting all Jewy.
Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce CEO Duvi Honig told The Post he tried to RSVP, contacting three Biden staffers and even brandishing an endorsement from the New Jersey Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s office to be honored as a Uniter — an award bestowed to 16 people at the event.
He didn’t hear back.
“The White House used hate. They used us, our blood — they used our DNA of Jews being persecuted and attacked daily as an excuse to make an event and didn’t include Orthodox Jews, who were the number one [target of] hate and antisemitism,” Honig said.
Roughly 800 of about 2,700 antisemitic incidents in 2021 — or nearly one third of them — occurred in New Jersey or New York.
“They didn’t recognize any Orthodox Jew as a Uniter purposely, which stands out while then recogniz[ing] Islamic, Reform [Jews], [Christian leaders] and so on,” said Honig, whose group seeks to build economic bridges between communities. “Our community’s leaders from the various large communities of Orthodox sectors where daily attacks accrue were missing [from] the summit and not invited.”
Honig said that he believes Reform Jews, who were better represented at the summit, are less likely to experience hate crimes because they don’t wear the conspicuous attire of many Orthodox Jews.
That’s the problem.
The number one victim of religious hate crimes in the US are Orthodox, aka visible, Jews. Jews who wear yarmulkes and beards and sideburns.
And the people who attack them the most are two very prominent demographics associated with the Democrats, and most of those attacks occur in Blue cities in Blue states.
Of course the Biden Administration isn’t going to acknowledge that it’s Al Sharpton’s constituents who are beating up Jews in a Democrat stronghold.
Biden will talk vaguely about the horrors of antisemitism in a way that totally denies the reality of antisemitism currently in the US.
And there is no better way to do this than not let in any Jews that look like the Jews who are getting beat up.
What Jews were allowed to come? Reform Jews, who are barely Jews. They are the Woke Jews who wrote OpEds after Ilhan Omar or Rashid Tlaib said something grotesquely antisemitic that “ackchyually, that wasn’t antisemitic, Trump is the real antisemite.”
Progressive Leftists who don’t eat bacon.
This is absolutely on brand for Democrats.
They can claim to stand against hatred while simultaneously encouraging.
Among the things movers will not take are cleaning chemicals and flammables.
I am now going to be hauling a trailer full of guns, high capacity magazines, assault rifles, suppressors, switch blades, acetone, bleach, matches, alcohol, and gasoline.
All of it purchased and used 100% legally.
But fuck me if all piled together in a trailer it looks skeezy as hell.
I’m about ready to hire a Bandit to be my blocker.
Really? Is that what we call dangerous bums now?
“I was able to dump a whole can of pepper spray in the guy’s face,” Pensa said.
They also had a stun gun Pensa tried to use to subdue the man.
“Turned on the stun gun, and when the guy tried to dip me and pick me up and throw me on the ground, I jabbed it in his kidney. Let him have it,” explained Pensa. “He didn’t stop. He tried to come and bite me in the leg.”
At one point, the fight spilled outside in front of the store. Pensa broke free – making his way back inside, he thought, to safety.
But he said the man came back in after him.
“He wrapped a belt around his hand with about two feet off the end of it, about two, three feet, and we were standing at the register,” said Pensa. “He just cold-cocked me in the head as hard as he could.”
The incident left Pensa with head injuries.
“I ended up at the ER, two CT scans,” he said. “Thought I had a fracture to my jaw, but they ended up telling me it was just really deep swelling.”
The victim comments that the “situation” is getting out of hand. You have to wonder how much is the crimin…er… “unhoused persons” and how much is the Criminal Social Justice System.
The “Unhoused” asshole does have a history of violence. An article from 2013.
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An alleged thief surprised police by returning to the scene of the crime after forgetting something he apparently was not willing to live without.
Eloghosa Adolor had made a clean getaway. The 21-year-old is accused of walking into a Kohl’s in Natomas Sunday afternoon and walking out with stuff he didn’t pay for.
When he was stopped by security, Sacramento police say he allegedly assaulted a loss prevention officer.
That’s when Adolor made a run for it. By the time police got here, he was long gone. But after realizing he had dropped his cellphone during the alleged felonious frenzy, Adolor made a move for his smart phone that, well, wasn’t so smart.
Police were amazed and thankful. Adolor had not only lost his phone, but now his freedom — busted for felony robbery and battery.
I guess the rebranding of his condition did nothing to improve his behavior after all.
