Last week we shared the video of the black woman in Houston who was infuriated by the potential resettlement of illegal immigrant children in her neighborhood. The outrage is spreading to Obama’s hometown of Chicago, where gang violence is effectively turning the black community into a genocidal combat zone — but cries and concerns have fallen upon deaf ears, at least where the first black president is concerned.
Hat tip to our conservative warrior in the ‘Hood, Rebel Pundit, who writes, “On Friday evening residents from Chicago’s Southside held a protest in front of the Chicago Police Department against the intolerable violence plaguing their communities and sounded off on President Obama for paying favor to illegal aliens crossing the southern border.”
“Residents also called for the resignation of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy for their failure to effectively handle the city’s violence epidemic. The president’s handling of the illegal invasion in Texas prompted residents to call him out for ignoring the current state of Chicago, where 120 people have been shot and at least 26 killed so far this July.”
As we just reported today, 748 illegal immigrants have been secretly dropped off in Chicago. Hundreds have already been dispersed to families — illegals or not — and sponsors.
Rebel Pundit writes, “The recent shooting of Jasmine Curry, a pregnant mother of five on Chicago’s Dan Ryan Expressway, prompted the residents to organize the demonstration. Curry’s father, Pierre Curry, attended the event and addressed and spoke of the pain he has endured after losing his first-born daughter after losing a son as well, less than one year ago. Curry said, “I’d like to tell the young peoples [sic] out here, especially young African-Americans, I’d like to tell the world, Mr. President, congress, senate, aldermen, governor, the mayor–losing a child is something else, losing something that God gave to you, and some fool in the street took it, he didn’t have a right to take my son or my daughter from her five kids. And if anybody knows something, anything, man up,” he then asked for prayers before breaking into tears.”
“Barack will go down as the worst president ever elected, Bill Clinton was the African-American President,” one resident said, in response to the president’s performance on the job, “President Barack needs to pay attention to Chicago, if he can not pay attention to Chicago and the African-American community, he needs to resign.”
Another compared the current state of Black-American life to that during slavery, saying, “Today, if you look at the time that we were brought here as slaves 400 years ago, we got the same results today.”
And so again I ask those faux leaders in the black community, especially Rep. Marcia Fudge Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus — the “conscience of the Congress” — just whose side is your self-declared messiah Obama on?
