This Chicago Democrat just humiliated Joe Biden and the Democrats’ 2024 Convention host

Crime and social ills have become glaring all across the country during the Biden administration.

That made the Windy City of Chicago a curious choice for Democrats’ 2024 DNC Convention to re-nominate Joe Biden for another term.

But now this Chicago Democrat just humiliated Joe Biden and the Democrats’ 2024 Convention host.

Crime is becoming a problem for far-left officeholders who have been enabling the behavior.

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson campaigned on a pledge to “solve crime” in the Windy City.

This goal was stated even though in a 2020 radio interview he described defunding the police as “an actual real political goal.”

While Johnson has diverted funds away from the police department, he nonetheless describes what is a de facto defunding policy as “people programs.”

Under Johnson there are fewer police officers on the streets and more opportunities for criminal activity to thrive.

That reality has made Johnson especially sensitive to charges that he is weak on fighting crime.

It’s against this backdrop that he is now being mercilessly mocked for his latest action.

Johnson: Criminals don’t commit crimes, car manufacturers do

The Mayor has filed a lawsuit against Kia and Hyundai over what he claims to be a manufacturing problem wherein the vehicles lack appropriate anti-theft measures.

Essentially, he’s blaming the car companies for a surge in auto theft.

Johnson said, “The impact of car theft on Chicago residents can be deeply destabilizing, particularly for low- to middle-income workers who have fewer options for getting to work and taking care of their families. The failure of Kia and Hyundai to install basic auto-theft prevention technology in these models is sheer negligence, and as a result, a citywide and nationwide crime spree around automobile theft has been unfolding right before our eyes.”

But not everyone is buying what Johnson is selling, even in his own political party.

Alderman: Blaming auto companies is ridiculous

Alderman Raymond Lopez (D) called the suit a “play from a socialist playbook” and said on an interview on Fox & Friends with host Steve Doocy, “Clearly, we don’t have a crime problem. We have a Kia problem in the city of Chicago, according to Mayor Johnson. The numbers speak for themselves – 104% increase from last year, a 234% increase in vehicle thefts from two years ago – but yet it’s the car’s fault.”

In a shocking case that proves Lopez’ point, a TV news crew in the city that was reporting on a rash of robberies numbering in the dozens on Sunday was itself robbed at gunpoint.

And according to local outlet, CWBChicago, that was the second robbery of a news crew in August.

Loped continued, saying, “It’s the fact that they are so easily taken by criminals who run rampant in the city of Chicago, but we have yet to hear our Mayor say anything, one word, about the criminals running rampant in our streets. And all he does in turn is lambast the media, lambast those who try to hold criminals accountable by playing word games.”

In the end, Johnson’s gambit to shift the blame for car thefts to auto manufacturers is convincing precisely no one, and unless and until he and his administration do a complete 180 and start to get tough on criminals, the devolution of a once great American city will continue.
