Heartlandnews.net is launching a new series called “Inmates Running the Asylum” where we will look at the bizarre things being done by our social institutions. Periodically we will focus on an area and review the craziness associated with those that lead and support these institutions. This week we will focus on big city government.
Whether it is New York City, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis, Philadelphia or Atlanta we see the same thing. Lawlessness and mayhem not only being allowed, but in many cases, supported. Seattle mayor Jenny Durkin stated early in the rioting and establishment of an autonomous zone, “We have incredibly peaceful demonstrations,” and it has an atmosphere like the “summer of love.” Results; many dead and injured and millions of dollars in destruction. Also, the city council voted to cut the police funding by 50%.
“Portland is just a smoldering junk heap,” said bookstore owner Ned Brady owner of Socialist Book Club and Vape store. “Each night the rioters ransack the streets and during the day the city comes and cleans it up. If I didn’t know better, I would guess it’s a prison work program. But it can’t be because they let all the inmates out of jail.” Mayor Ted Wheeler tried to meet with the “protesters” recently and was shouted down and told to resign. Well, Heartland News and the anarchists agree on one thing: the mayor must go.
De Blasio, mayor of New York City is a piece of work. If NYC was its own country, we in the heartland would be laughing at some crazy tin pot dictator. A little secret, we are laughing. In fact, the whole country is laughing at New Yorkers who voted this clown into office. The mayor stopped all large gatherings except “protests.” He disbanded the police anti-crime unit just in time to see the murder and violent crime rate skyrocket. He pushed a police reform bill only to pull support after crime went out of control. But where is the mayor spending his time? Painting “Black Lives Matter” on the street in front of Trump tower. Not even Nicolas Maduro is this dumb.
Chicago Mayor Lori “Lightweight” Lightfoot probably is the craziest of all. She continues to think that Chicago’s crime and murder rate is due to guns. It can’t possibly be due to the cultural breakdown brought on by liberal policies promoted for over 50 years. One parent households, poor schools, minimum wage rules and poor housing programs have led to a culture of crime, unemployment and dependency. You could see she was practically giddy as she instituted business closures for the pandemic. It didn’t stop her from getting her hair done however. Recently she said President Trump was sending law enforcement in to Chicago because she is female and he is sexist. You can’t make up this type of crazy.
We could go on and on about the terrible leadership of big city government but in the end it’s really a reflection of the voter. As Mr. Brady pointed out “People don’t vote for those they believe will be the best leaders, they vote for people they like. Crazy people like other crazy people.”
Well done voters, well done.
