Far-left Mayor blamed crime in his city on something that will leave you red with rage

Democrat mismanagement is being exposed.

That’s why people are flocking to Republican-controlled states.

And one far-left Mayor blamed crime in his city on something that will leave you red with rage.

Chicago has sadly become synonymous with senseless gang violence.

Each weekend, seemingly dozens of people in Chicago are shot.

The problem only worsens in the summer months.

Blame. . .Nixon?

And after a weekend where over 100 Chicagoans were shot and 19 killed, Mayor Brandon Johnson had the gall to blame Richard Nixon for the crime.

Yes, Nixon, who was President from 1969 to 1974.

He is to blame for Chicago’s rampant crime.

Johnson said, “Black death has been unfortunately accepted in this country for a very long time. We had a chance 60 years ago to get at the root causes. And people mocked President Johnson, and we ended up with Richard Nixon.”


Johnson’s words were ridiculous on so many levels.

First, Lyndon Johnson chose not to seek re-election in 1968 because his popularity had cratered due to the Vietnam War.

Second, it has become a talking point on the Left that Nixon was responsible for “mass incarceration” because of the War on Crime.

Ironically, the War on Crime was a Lyndon Johnson initiative.

Even though Nixon sought détente with the Soviet Union and Red China, he was a fierce anti-Communist who used the FBI to dismantle violent subversive radical Left movements like the Weather Underground.

Finally, Chicago has been under Democrat rule since 1931.

If Mayor Johnson wants to blame someone, he can look in the mirror.

Johnson and other far-left Democrats also like to blame lax gun laws in Indiana for the crime in Chicago.

If that were the case, Indianapolis would have a similar murder rate to Chicago, but it is significantly lower.

In response to Johnson’s statement, the Nixon Foundation wrote a thread on social media that began, “Mayor Johnson’s reference to President Nixon is gratuitous and the facts are not on his side in his characterization of Richard Nixon and the Nixon administration’s civil rights record.”

Worst of the worst

Johnson’s predecessor, Lori Lightfoot, became the first incumbent Chicago mayor to lose re-election in decades.

However, Johnson has arguably been worse thus far.

He has spent an exorbitant amount of public funds on hair and grooming care, far more than Lightfoot or any other Illinois politician, and he has pursued far-left policies.

Johnson recently signed an executive order creating a committee to study slavery reparations.

He announced, “Today’s Executive Order is not just a public declaration; it is a pledge to shape the future of our city by confronting the legacy of inequity that has plagued Chicago for far too long.”

In reality, these research committees are just payoffs to cronies.

Johnson has also done nothing to address the illegal immigration problem in Chicago.

City funds have been diverted to provide room and board for illegal aliens, angering residents.

Brandon Johnson’s tenure has already been a failure, and he’s trying to blame it on a President who has been dead for 30 years.
