HOT time in the city - Black Chicagoans got something to say about migrants

Let’s just clear the air right from the beginning and settle the matter – by the definition laid down by the Democratic Party and their Progressive masters, the people you will read about and see in the following posts are racists, pure and simple. I don’t care what you’ve heard about skin hue determining racist proclivity – they are racists by their own party’s repeated guidelines.

That’s how this works. Their rules, not ours.

They are also very surprised about how a lifetime legacy of voting blue is working out for them, too, but that’s part and parcel of machine politics and just a bonus for us watching the implosion.

Anyway, here we go.

Chicago is a mess in its own right – a self-induced mess for sure, but a disaster in the making none-the-less. Now, take that deep blue, appallingly run, corruption infested, Democratic Progressive hellhole and start bringing in illegals by the busload, even putting them on airplanes now. Thousands of them from overburdened and collapsing border towns in Texas.

…There has been a tenfold increase over the past 10 days in daily arrivals of migrants, said Brandie Knazze, commissioner of the Department of Family and Support Services. Migrants — often families with children — are now sheltering in police station lobbies across the city. Knazze said the city used to receive 10 people per day; that’s now risen to as many as 100.

Advocates and city officials say the potential for crisis is growing, with migrants arriving with injuries, health needs and underlying conditions after surviving in substandard conditions for weeks or months on their journeys to the United States.

…Last fall, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began sending busloads of migrants to Chicago to protest new arrivals in his state. But now, individuals and families are arriving from Texas on planes, said the city’s chief engagement officer, Nubia Willman.

Whatever a “ten-fold” increase is, it’s small potatoes compared to what the border counties have been experiencing since Joe Biden took office. About time they got some relief from somewhere, wouldn’t you think? And if help wasn’t coming to the border, well, the border would have to go look for help. Two hundred a day, when down El Paso to Brownsville way, those guys are looking at ten thousand a day breaching the border?

An initial response would be “Call a waahmbulance,” you pathetic, pandering creatures.

Hey! You Chicagoans are all are so proud of your Sanctuary City status, well…what’s the problem?

Are you or aren’t you a sanctuary?

The new mayor, in keeping with his touchy-feely campaign, has an affirmative case of “Why, yes we are.”

…Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson was also asked about the migrant crisis.

We have a responsibility to make sure that families that are seeking love and support in Chicago and in Illinois, that they are not just welcome but serviced,” said Johnson.

Aw. *head tilt*

If you asked the folks on Leroy Brown’s old stomping grounds on the South Side, it seems the answer is more, “HELL, no and nobody asked us to begin with!”

The Chicago Mayor’s Office is preparing to discuss plans to house migrants at the old South Shore High School.

It’s a proposal that is causing some stir within the community.

The public forum was held at the South Shore International College Prep Thursday night and it was a packed house that strongly opposed the idea of migrants being housed in their neighborhood.

“I am just outraged! I’m outraged and I don’t understand why our community was chosen?” said one resident during the forum.

City representatives told the crowd that the old South Shore High School would not be a shelter, but would be one of three respite centers for the migrants to temporarily sleep, eat and take a shower. They would start with about 250 people taking up the building’s first floor.

This is a way for the city to get the current 300 migrants out of the police stations, where they’ve been sleeping on floors and not having much to eat.

“Causing some stir”? Girlfriend, that may qualify for the understatement of the year. Those residents are flaming hot and not afraid to let their aldermen and the city know it.

They are losing their collective minds over the city’s plans to house illegals – even temporarily – in their neighborhood.

So much so that the editorial board of the Chicago Sun Times was horrified enough to write a chiding, nanny-voiced, fainting couch op-ed comparing the black South Shore residents to?

TRUMP MAGA types. Scout’s honor – they did.

South Shore residents angry about migrant shelter would make MAGA proud

…No Chicagoan, no matter what part of town they live in, can forget that, even as the city struggles to find shelter for the influx of migrants being sent here by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has no qualms about using human beings as political pawns.

We as residents have to be better than that. But some in South Shore were not last week, when they shamefully emulated Abbott’s wanton callousness in protesting the planned use of a shuttered school to house migrants.

“We don’t care.” “We don’t want them here.” “Send them back.” “Close the border.” Those were among the ugly jeers that dominated the meeting at South Shore International College Prep, as the Sun-Times’ Emmanuel Camarillo reported.

What a pathetic and embarrassing display of NIMBYism, sounding much like an ugly “America First” rally for Donald Trump. One man even held a sign that read “Build the wall 2024.” That image alone is certain to put a smug smile on the faces of many MAGA types.

Boy, they can’t resist trotting out the tired MAGA as the worst insult ever. Pretentious fools. The black residents of South Shore are now MAGA racists, just like that. That “build the wall” sign must have really gotten under their skin and you know these are fellows who probably have 10 foot fences and/or security guards at their homes.

The situation is only going to deteriorate. Brandon Johnson’s not mayor yet – his inauguration is next week.

Gov Abbott is sending more buses and more migrants – since August, there’ve been about 8100 sent to the Chicago area. That’s merely a day’s total in the numbers coming over the Texas-Mexico border.

Right about now, I’ll bet MAGA’s starting to make some sense to a few South Shore residents who’d never once thought any more of it than the guys Jussie Smollet paid to bust his chops.

Build the wall makes sense now, too, eh?

Amazing what a reality check can do.
