OPINION| A quote that is often attributed (incorrectly) to Thomas Jefferson comes to mind when thinking about Mayor Lightfoot and her 100% naked thirst for power: “Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry.” While Jefferson never said, nor penned these words, the sentiment remains true.
At some point, our nation went from one which elected public ‘servants’ who saw to it that our God-given rights were protected from tyrannical government overreach, to an institution that seeks to plunder every last right and dollar from its subjects.
We often talk about the two sets of laws that seem to exist in this country, one for the left and another for the right. However, this duality is even starker when it comes to the law’s ability to hold government ‘officials’ accountable vs the police state that is forced upon you and I, the everyday citizen.
Whether it is Seattle, or Portland or Chicago, these Democrat strongholds have descended into dystopian nightmares, where Mayors rule over citizens as if they were subjects of their fiefdoms.
There is perhaps no more glaring an example than Mayor Lightfoot, aka Beetlejuice:
According to Fox News:
Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended the Chicago Police Department banning protesters from the block where she lives, citing her right to safety.
The Democratic mayor said her family requires heightened security due to threats she receives, but did not elaborate.
“I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” Lightfoot said.
She said comparisons to how the police department protected previous mayors’ homes, such as that of Rahm Emanuel, were unfair because: “This is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.
After massive street protests after the killing of George Floyd in May, Chicago police banned protests near the mayor’s home. Officers were instructed to arrest anyone protesting near her Logan Square residence.
This type of ‘leadership’ is not sustainable over the long term. The longer it goes on and the more the average person suffers, the more frustrated they will become with their feudal lords. All it is going to take is the wrong person to get hurt by the mob, while the Mayor safely eats cake in her police protected fortress for things to go sideways, and when they do … look out, because it is going to get ugly … FAST.
