The wave of violence sweeping through Democrat controlled cities shows no signs of diminishing. The woke politics of the left is sowed seeds of chaos that is now sprouting into rampant, unchecked violence. Here’s the latest tally for New York City and Chicago:
New Yorkers saw 21 shootings that injured 26 people between Friday and Sunday, a slight dip from the same dates last year when 30 people were shot in 25 acts of gunplay.
In Chicago, 92 people were shot over the holiday weekend, 16 of whom died, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The victims included a Chicago police commander and a sergeant who were wounded while dispersing a crowd on the city’s West Side early Monday.
But let’s take a closer look at the chaos in New York City. New York City was a place I loved to visit. But it is a “no go” zone for me now. If you decide to take the tourist terrorist challenge, be sure to have life insurance in place before you go.
Just look at these headlines from covering three days–July 2 thru July 4 (all courtesy of the NY Post). In addition to shootings, you have robberies, battery, assault and stabbings. Gives new meaning to the opening line of Sinatra’s standard–“Start spreading the news”:
The leftists are purging the city of the middle class political opposition and setting the stage for federal police and a federal bailout of the usual socialists and the corporate elite. Did you see Nancy’s deployment of Capital Hill police outside of D.C.?
People get the government they deserve.
True for the Afghans as well.
The Afghans seem to prefer living in the 12th century.
Always been fascinated by Stone Age or Medieval people who don’t have any trouble riding on aircraft that for them are run by magic. An American teaching at a Saudi U. told me once that his physics majors often asked him if these machines, TV, radar, etc. really worked the way he described or if djinn operated them.
Met a guy (Brit) who had taught Saudi AF mechanics.
They had zero aptitude.

A friend that lived in NYC, and in LA, for years, recently visited both within past fortnight.
NYC: all the local-owned stores/shops/businesses: gone — only the big boys, those national and international businesses still operating.
LA: homeless everywhere — everywhere. . . tents everywhere. Was told literally have to step over them to go anywhere.
This person is a die-hard Liberal, and did not recognize either city.
And also, in LA and environs, I was told, signs everywhere warning of drought and great danger of fire. . . all the lawns are burnt from no water; and the forests look like a Sci Fi movie, I was told.
According to Cuomo, guns are the problem. Apparently the most stringent gun laws in the country aren’t stringent enough. So he is going to double down.
It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with political attacks on police, “bail reform” and the early mass release of prisoners, some of whom are quite violent based on their rap sheets – or that Western civ., also under attack by democrats, really is superior to the third world spear chuckers that democrats love so much – and Dancing with Wolves is Hollywood BS.
New York, the city and the state, is ever faster circling the drain. Productive tax paying individuals and businesses are leaving in droves. Cuomo and local governments will raise taxes to cover the loss in revenue, which causes more tax payers to leave. Round and round it goes. Add to that the uptick in violent crime and general lunacy of the democrats that run the place infesting every aspect of life. The descent into a stygian nightmare scene will soon be complete. That is exactly what happened in the city of my birth, Detroit. It is exactly what happens anywhere democrats obtain full control. It is sad because once the tax paying base has left, the city (or state) cannot recover.
I’m glad I recently got the hell out of there and have returned to God’s country.
I doubt it’s a coincidence that an ex-cop just won the NYC Democratic Party primary for mayor. Of course, some of his support may be because of his minority status, which appeals to Identity Politics voters. But still, I imagine a lot of people there are fed up with the results of current governance (or more precisely the lack thereof).
Another Chicago police officer was shot today. Expect some fallout.
The carnage over 4th of July weekend, while distressing, were nothing particularly out of the ordinary. It’s practically always our most violent weekend of the year.
