The country is burning while Democrats express their support for violent rioters and there is a looming possibility that the mobs will soon invade the suburbs.
At no time in the nation’s history has constitutional government been under attack as it is today and never before has the future of the republic itself hung in the balance with tyranny only an election away from kicking down the door.
Fox News ratings king Tucker Carlson is warning that the toppling of statues will only be an appetizer for the carnage to come once the Democrats’ paramilitary arm grows bored of destroying the cities.
On Friday, in the latest example of how Democrat mayors have allied themselves with the street mobs, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot signed off on the city’s removal of two statues of Christopher Columbus at sites where violent anarchists rioted and attacked police.
With the statues not only being targeted by criminals but also by Dem machine officials like Lightfoot, it is only a matter of time until they begin to go after the innocent citizens who have been left vulnerable by their police forces which have been neutered by Dems.
According to Tucker:
“The problem for the rest of us is, the mobs will not stop with Christopher Columbus. He’s just the beginning. If they can tear down statues whenever they feel like it, how long before they tear down buildings? How long before they tear down homes? How long before they tear down human beings? Probably not very long.”
Chicago has become a war zone with more shootings than most third-world countries including a mass shooting of mourners at an area funeral home last week – they were there to pay their last respects to a shooting victim.
Carlson was loaded for bear and blasted Mayor Lightfoot with both barrels.
Via the partial transcript:
“In case you are wondering why Lightfoot chose Christopher Columbus to blame for her city’s decline — why not Marco Polo? Why not Vasco de Gama? There’s a reason. Her constituents demanded it. Not voters or taxpayers. There was never any groundswell of opposition to Christopher Columbus in Chicago. He’s not on the list of concerns for most people there. No, Lightfoot’s actual constituents wanted Columbus taken down. Her actual constituents are Antifa. Last week, the mob descended on Grant Park to take down the Columbus statue. Almost 50 police officers were injured in the riot you just saw. But Lori Lightfoot did not care. They’re not her voters. Lightfoot cares about her base: the looters, the destroyers, the angry Marxist rich kids with the spray paint. When they tell her to act, Lori Lightfoot acts immediately.”
“The problem for the rest of us is, the mobs will not stop with Christopher Columbus. He’s just the beginning. If they can tear down statues whenever they feel like it, how long before they tear down buildings? How long before they tear down homes? How long before they tear down human beings? Probably not very long. Violence rarely remains symbolic. It accelerates until good people rise up to stop it. If Lori Lightfoot and progressive mayors like her around the country, and there are many, are allowed to divert attention from their own failures by bowing to the mob and destroying public property, this will not end with Christopher Columbus. It will get much worse, and it will get more dangerous. You may not think tearing down a statue is a big deal until you are the next designated Christopher Columbus.”
Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland have already been lost and Chicago is teetering on the brink while the likes of Jacob Frey, Mayor Jenny Durkan, Ted Wheeler, and Lightfoot are acting as the mob’s greatest enablers.
Unfortunately, Tucker is right that the mayhem will eventually move to the suburbs where the mob will likely face much more resistance than in the cities.
