Beetlejuice: It’s the Fault of Guns; Not Perps

2021 August 9

Even CNN was forced to provide scant coverage of the young Chicago policewoman – and mother of a two-month old girl – who was murdered during a traffic stop over the weekend. Her partner is hospitalized in critical condition. Don’t worry, CNN will forget about Ella French by tomorrow.

It was part of the constant weekend terror in the Windy City. In all, 76 people were shot, 13 fatally.

Mayor Bettlejuice has the solution – blame guns – not the killers.

Hours after Chicago police officer Ella French was killed during a traffic stop, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) blamed “guns,” describing them as “a common enemy.”

Breitbart News reports that French was working a traffic stop Saturday night just after 9 p.m. when at least one suspect opened fire on her and the male officer who was her partner. The gunfire proved fatal for French and left the male officer in critical condition.

There were three suspects in the car from which the gunfire came: two males and a female. CNN notes that all three suspects are in custody.

Mayor Lightfoot reacted to the attack on the officer by tweeting:

Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot
@chicagosmayor

Today is an official day of mourning for the city. We lost a young officer. I offer my condolences to her mother, brother, family and friends. Please keep this officer, the officer in the hospital and CPD in your prayers.

She then followed the first tweet with one in which she zeroed in on guns, writing, “Some say we don’t do enough for the police. Others say we do too much. All of this must stop. We have a common enemy: it’s guns & the violence they bring.”

Chicago, like all of Illinois, has a red flag law, a 72-hour waiting period for gun purchases, and a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card requirement for would-be gun buyers. The process for getting a FOID card includes a background check. And Cook County, Illinois, the county in which Chicago is located, has an “assault weapon” ban.

Moreover, on August 3, 2021, Breitbart News observed that Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) signed universal background checks legislation, thereby criminalizing private gun sales that are conducted without first undergoing an FBI background check.

The universal background check gun control takes effect in 2024.

Political correctness prevents anyone from correcting Mayor Beetlejuice. It’s not guns that are to blame, but the “ghetto culture” that exists in Chicago. Why aren’t there a spate of shootings every weekend in predominately white suburbs like Lisle and Arlington Heights, mixed race Chicago suburbs like Lansing and Chicago Heights or predominately black suburbs, like South Holland. The answer is simple – the suburbs don’t have gangs.

There are other “common enemies” that Beetlejuice did not identify – the media and politicians that have made a career of race-baiting.

CNN has been working to convince Americans that the police are the enemies of blacks since the death of Michael Brown, if not before. Was it a coincidence that five Dallas law enforcement officers were murdered by a black activist following CNN’s non-stop Michael Brown coverage? Is it a coincidence that the number of police killed in the line of duty has skyrocketed since CNN’s non-stop George Floyd coverage?

Then we have “The Squad” and morons like Cori Bush, who constantly accuse the police of waging war on blacks and calling for defunding the police while ignoring the fact that 93% of murdered blacks are killed by – you guessed it – other blacks.

The left keeps claiming we need to have a national discussion on race. They are right, but it can’t be the kind they want in which whites and systemic racism is blamed for everything, but rather a politically incorrect conversation, which discusses the root causes – things like unwed mothers, high school drop-outs and abnormally high black crime. Absent from any national conversation is the disproportionate number of police officers murdered by blacks.

    Rand Paul: Time for us to resist

    We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again.
    Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have all either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, and we will not be forced into random screening and testing so you can continue your drunk with power rein over the Capitol.

    Competition between the states to see who’s Most Woke heats up.

    Oregon Dems Eliminate High School Reading Proficiency Requirement
    Gov. Kate Brown guts requirement that high schoolers prove they can read, write, and do math
    https://freebeacon.com/democrats/oregon-dems-eliminate-requirement-that-high-schoolers-prove-they-can-read-write/
    “Democratic governor Kate Brown of Oregon signed a bill last month that drops the requirement that high schoolers prove they can read, write, and do math at a basic high school level in order to graduate.

    The bill, which the Democratic legislature passed in June in a mostly party-line vote, suspends Oregon’s high school graduation requirements for at least five years as the state works to reform its high school standards. A spokesman for the governor’s office told the Oregonian that suspending the proficiency requirements will benefit “Oregon’s Black, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color.”

    Before the requirements were put on hold during the pandemic, Oregon high schoolers needed to show proficiency in “essential learning skills” to earn their diploma. That meant demonstrating basic skills in reading, writing, and math, which students could prove without taking a test.

    The governor signed the bill on July 14 with no fanfare. The move went under the radar for nearly two weeks, according to the Oregonian, because Brown did not hold a ceremony or issue a press release to mark the signing of the bill. Oregon’s legislative database was not updated to reflect that the governor signed the bill until July 29. Other bills Brown signed in July were updated in the database the same day she signed them. A state legislative information services administrator attributed the failure to issue a notice that the bill had been signed to a system malfunction.”

    Uh huh.

    NBC Draws Its Lowest Summer Olympics Ratings Ever for Tokyo Games

    Olympic athletes like Caeleb Dressel, Suni Lee and Sydney McLaughlin helped the U.S. win the most gold medals at the Tokyo Summer Games. For Comcast’s NBCUniversal, however, the size of the audience that watched was underwhelming.

    The Summer Games drew an average of 15.5 million prime-time viewers over their 17-day run, the company said, the lowest audience for the Summer Games since NBC started broadcasting them in 1988 and a 42% decline from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.

    I just checked with my guns, they all said they have been behaving themselves, and assured me they were nowhere near Chicago this past weekend. I believe them. 🙂

    Earlier someone mentioned that Ike only had two rows of military ribbons. General Mark Milley must have 50 ribbons along with a number of badges. He looks like a caricature. I noticed that the Capitol Police and Chicago police higher-ups also have rows of “military-like” ribbons. WTF?

    JR #19 –

    In previous times, schools would add extra courses to bring sub-par students up to speed. Now, if some can’t handle a subject, it’s drop the subject or requirement.

    My daughter spent about 8 weeks this summer working four hours with four days a week tutoring three students going into the fourth and fifth grades who were far behind. Fortunately she works for a suburban district that can afford to provide extra effort for slow learners.

    The media is working overtime to build up Kamala as its wet dream is a female president of color. At the same time, it is working overtime to destroy Ron DeSantis.

    Epoch Times: Companies Now Deducting $50 From Unvaccinated Workers’ Monthly Paychecks

    Why the urgency? Did companies ever care if you got your vision tested or your teeth checked or your warts removed or ….? The application of gov’t, media and BigTech force to this is SO out of balance with the danger to normal citizens that I can only assume there is something behind it. Because this level of coordinated oppression is crazy.

    seriously, I would hate to be a White person in Chicago today who drops a bubble-gum wrapper on the street! Mayor Beetlejuice will have them CRUCIFIED!! Gotta balance such a “crime wave” against the poor oppressed Black guys who, I’m sure” “accidentally” shot the female cop…several times, accidentally.
