A few months back, I shared with y’all the five Ds that describe the progressive socialist left. I found it rather humorous that the actress Debra Messing of the now-canceled show “Will and Grace,” expressed support for a delusional assertion from an Alabama church. She used her social media platform to echo the sentiment that being a black Trump supporter is a sign of mental illness. Yeah, damn me, I should so much more prefer 20 million more murders of unborn black babies, high black unemployment rates, more decimation of the black family, the lack of quality education opportunities, more black incarcerated for minor offenses with no second chance, and rampant black on black crime. Okay, just sum it up by saying I want more inner-city failures like Baltimore!!!
See, for these white progressive socialist leftists and their black economic plantation overseers, any black person seeking a higher quality of life for themselves is mentally ill. We “colored folks” should just wanna keep on sucking up to Massa Charlie and Missy, and the petty crumbs they offer by way of welfare subsistence checks. Any black person who wants individual freedom, liberty, and the right to economic self-determination is crazy to the left. Heck, just line up and get your centuries-old slave wages, reparations, and be considered a sane colored person, a “good Negro,” according to Missy Messing and company.
Sorry, lady, I will stand with the political party that was created for a singular reason, to end slavery, which they did . . . without any doggone Democrat (socialist) support. I will align with the party that brought the first black members of Congress to Capitol Hill, one was my predecessor, US Representative Josiah T. Walls of Florida. I think I will hang out with the Republican Party of Texas, which on July 4, 1867, was established by 150 blacks, free blacks, who were targeted by the same folks who are targeting blacks today: the party of the jackass.
Nah, we blacks who support President Trump are not mentally ill. Actually, the blacks who support you and the party that has done nothing but bring about despair, despondency, and slavery upon the American black community are the delusional ones . . . and I have a prime example of one of those cray cray people.
As reported by the Daily Caller:
“Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed Republicans for gun violence in her city Monday night, telling Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth,” and posting a chart that claimed 60% of guns recovered in Chicago come from out of state. Lightfoot’s tweets came after a West Texas shooting Saturday killed 7 people and wounded 22 others. “60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL—mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation,” Lightfoot said. “Keep our name out of your mouth.” Lightfoot’s comments came after Cruz pointed out that Illinois’ strict gun control legislation has not prevented carnage in Chicago, which is one of the most violent cities in the country. Chicago has not had a Republican mayor since the early 1930s.”
I hate to share something with Mayor Lightfoot, who appears to be light-headed: it is illegal to transfer a newly purchased firearm across state lines. Trust me, I know these things. When I purchased a Sig Sauer p365 handgun at Wilshire Gun in Oklahoma City, I paid for the weapon there but had to provide the address of an FFL — Federal Firearms Licensee — to whom the weapon could be shipped, in Texas. Once the weapon arrived in Texas, I was notified by the FFL I had provided, Crossfire Defense Academy in Flower Mound, and had to set a time to come and retrieve my new semi-automatic 9mm handgun. Oh, but it ain’t that easy, I had to present ID and fill out BATF Form 4473, background check, before the weapon could be released to me. Now, Mayor Lightfoot, that is the legal, law-abiding procedure . . . I can assure you that the criminals who are shooting and killing others in Chicago are not acquiring their weapons legally.
The problem in Chicago and other progressive socialist controlled cities with high murder and shooting rates is that these gang members, criminals, are not prosecuted, charged with illegal possession of a firearm, felony offense. Heck, some of you may have read about in San Francisco where a California court of appeals dropped charges against a five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant who unlawfully discharged a weapon in public, killing young Kate Steinle. So, Mayor Lightfoot, good delusional, deranged try, but you are pure evidence of the abject craziness and mental instability of the left to say such foolishness publicly. Here you are, the mayor of a city where you prevent law-abiding, legal Americans from having a firearm, a complete violation of the Supreme Court decision in McDonald v City of Chicago. Oh yeah, Otis McDonald was a black man who wanted to be able to defend himself, in his home, from gang members. Sadly, he had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to get a favorable decision, yet you, and all your fellow black and white socialist mayors of American urban cities, refuse to abide by that SCOTUS decision because y’all cherry-pick laws with the litmus test being your ideological agenda.
Hmm, and I am the one with a mental illness?
Mayor Lightfoot, you, ma’am, are certifiably “stuck on stupid” and have displayed your true lack of leadership . . . the refusal to take responsibility and accountability. Ma’am, Chicago is your city, and every weekend there are mass shootings . . . which you leftists fail to speak of! This ain’t about Texas, it is about you and your city. As the parable of Jesus would say, before looking at the speck in another’s eye, focus on the plank in your own.
Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Milwaukee, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston, and Los Angeles are not the fault of Republicans. It is the result of the delusional and deranged policies of the progressive socialist left . . . meaning you, Mayor Lori “Light-Headed” Lightfoot.
