Remember the summer of 2020 riots when the not-so-peaceful thugs, criminals, and protesters burned down and looted black and Asian-owned businesses in downtown Chicago and threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the police who heroically tried to restore order? The damage was in the millions of dollars and the Windy City has never been the same.
Our friends at the Illinois Policy Institute have sent us a troubling tape of Brandon Johnson, the Chicago mayoral candidate showing him repeatedly refusing to condemn the violence. Instead, he rails against corporate profits and claims that maybe shoplifters shouldn’t be punished because they are a consequence of societal greed and inequality.
If you watch the video, you will see that Brandon Johnson is AOC without the pantsuit, and may soon be running the city of Chicago.
