If you’ve been paying attention for the past hundred years or so, you might’ve noticed that there are two hallmarks of leftists:
1. Nothing they believe in works.
2. That’s always someone else’s fault.
For instance, Venezuela recently blamed its socialist death-rattle blackouts on President Trump and capitalists. But then, Trump is to blame for everything, from the New Zealand shooting to the anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party to the Boeing plane crash to Barbra Streisand’s weight gain and Barbara Bush’s heart attack.
And while most people point to the notoriously corrupt “Chicago way” to explain the dropping of 16 felony charges against Jussie Smollett for allegedly faking a hate crime that smeared Trump supporters, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel knows who’s really to blame: Donald Trump.
You see, it was the “toxic” and “hate-filled” racist environment created by Trump that made Smollett think he could get away with faking a hate crime, not that he thought he could pull strings with the Chicago prosecutors, which is how he actually got away with it. Oddly, Emanuel also called Chicago a “Trump-free zone.” If Smollett was relying on an environment created by Trump to get away with a hoax, why would he pull it in a “Trump-free zone”? Did he think he could get away with it because…Trump runs the Cook County prosecutors’ office? And why have there been so many documented hoax hate crimes intended to smear Trump and his supporters, going back almost to the moment he announced his candidacy?
Also worth noting: racial divisiveness has been worsening in America since the Obama Administration. And since long before Trump came on the political scene, Chicago has suffered some of the nation’s highest levels of shootings and other gang-related crimes that disproportionately harm African-Americans, while the city hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1931.
So tell me again, Rahm: which Party is to blame for creating a “toxic” environment in Chicago?
