“HANDS FULL DON’T SHOOT!” Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin’ town!

HANDI don’t know about anyone else but I’m still struggling to find a “common denominator” for all these lootings and riots and drive-by shooting in Chicago. Any insights?

Next day in downtown:


Hog Butcher for the World,
Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,
Player with Railroads and the Nation’s Freight Handler;
Stormy, husky, brawling,
City of the Big Shoulders:

They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys.


And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to kill again.
And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the faces of women and children I have seen the marks of wanton hunger.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer and say to them:


Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.
Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities;
Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness,


Bareheaded,
Shoveling,
Wrecking,
Planning,
Building, breaking, rebuilding,


Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth,
Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs,

Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has never lost a battle,
Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse, and under his ribs the heart of the people,
Laughing!
Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation.

— Carl Sandberg, 1914

    What I don’t get is thievery of Apple products. Any Apple device that connects to the internet can report its address and if the genii at Rooty Tooty Fruity HQ had any real sense, they would prime their servers to brick every device that was looted.

    Alternative Headline Options: “Some people doing what some people do” or more commonly; “Groups of youth have a Downtown party that gets out of hand ” or perhaps ; “A gathering of teens turns into a protest for justice.” Maybe, “Peaceful protests continue in downtown Chicago. “

    Chicongo…Chicongo
    That Aborigine town
    Chicongo..Chicongo
    I’ll slap you around
    Bet your bottom dollar
    You lose your ride in Chicongo
    The township that Lori Light in the Loafers
    Could not shut down…..

    The common denominator in all these cities starts with the letter “D” and contains the word, “rats”. These peaceful protests serve the Dem politicians’ purpose, which is to keep one segment of our population agitated and the other demoralized. When people live in fear, then they can be controlled. BTW these spontaneous peaceful protesters drove up in a caravan of rented vans and trucks, looting store after store along the Magnificent Mile-Tesla, Apple, Gucci, Macy’s, Nordstrom’s, Starbucks, Walgreens, etc. They looted for 5 hours, because the Chicago police aren’t allowed to do anything. About 20 officers wounded and they were shot at. Thank you Sheriff Lori for doing nothing. Thank you DA Kim “Juicey Smollyeah” Foxx for letting over 75 felony arrest criminals walk, with all charges dropped, from our last peaceful protest looting spree in Chicago. This is just the warm up for November.

    It would appear the Trump re-election memes are writing themselves. Just keep on looting, rioting, burning, and murdering. More and more sheeple, normies, and cucks are waking up.

    I’m surprised the mayor criticized them because judging from that picture it’s either lots of European men or a bunch of American gay guys because there sure are a lot of speedos there. Could be a lot of professional swimmers, but I doubt it. In any case, she just saw ‘WHITE PEOPLE’! And went to typing!
