Chicago Police Chief: Lack of Federal Gun Control is Racist

Click here to watch Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy preaching the gospel of gun control to parishioners at St. Sabina’s Church. Despite the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court’s McDonald decision recently struck down Chicago’s handgun ban citing the racist roots of gun control, McCarthy told the audience the exact opposite is true: the lack of gun control is racist. “Let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting scared? Government sponsored racism . . . Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy . . .

Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children.”

You’re crazy. And the gun manufacturers who supply McCarthy’s troops with handguns, rifles and shotguns should send him a little memo about his personal attack (“living in gated communities”). Not that they will. But they should.

    It’s all Sarah Palin’s fault for shooting that caribou. Anybody getting scared yet? Can I get a hallelujah?!

    I don’t think I’ve seen a more panderingly pathetic performance by a “public servant” in years.

    “everybody’s afraid of racism, but I’m not afraid of racism.”

    He has a fondness for the absurd. He’s the lawman, the representative of law and order, yet he brags about how he isn’t doing his job, and then he has the nerve to play the race card. It’s insulting! If I were in that church that day I would have been burning with indignation.

    It’s hard to argue with the conclusion that the man is either out of his mind or the mayor’s bitch. Or maybe he’s both.

      I’ll take door number two, Monte.

    I’d have to go with both, Ralph.

    Well, that did not take long.

    Oh, and St. Sabina’s Church is a cesspool of hate and racism.

    “Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children.”

    “Federal laws that facilitate abortion in our urban centers across this country are killing our black and brown children.”

    I think my version is much more accurate than that of Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy.

    Abortion is nothing more than government sponsored racism and eugenics.

    I came to age in Chicago in the 1960’s. There was a blatant defacto agreement between the Police and the Gangs, most notably the Black “P” Stone Rangers, to the effect that if you keep your activities localized in ghetto we will let you alone. The Daley machine used the gangs to keep the residents in line and in the process created the economic and social wasteland that we see today. This was a racist policy that was worse then anything in the South at the time.

    Rather than gun control perhaps the people of Chicago should practive Democrat control and boot out the entrenched kleptocracy that produced the current occupant of the White House.

    Now, if I can just find an address for his office… I think he needs a copy of Kenn Blanchard’s book.

  9. avatar Rob Crawford says:

    The first US gun control laws were intended to disarm blacks so they couldn’t defend themselves against the Democrats’ militant wing, the Klan.

    Apparently only the identity and make-up of their militant wing has changed, not the goals.
