Chicago Mayor Suddenly Has A Problem With “Protesters” – Because They Are At Her House

Say, Lori, if they’re so peaceful why are you concerned?

Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended the Chicago Police Department’s ban on protesters being able to demonstrate on the block where she lives, telling reporters Thursday that she and her family at times require heightened security because of threats she receives daily.

Lightfoot refused to elaborate on the specific threats, but said she receives them daily against herself, her wife and her home. Comparisons to how the Police Department has protected previous mayors’ homes, such as Rahm Emanuel’s Ravenswood residence, are unfair because “this is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.

“I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” Lightfoot said. (snip)

“I’m not going to make any excuses for the fact that, given the threats I have personally received, given the threats to my home and my family, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure they’re protected,” Lightfoot said. “I make no apologies whatsoever for that.”

But, hey, if “protesters” are burning down Other People’s businesses, keeping Other People awake and scaring them at their homes, that’s fine with her. And she, along with previous Democratic Party mayors, has worked hard to disarm the law abiding citizens, while she’s surrounded with armed protection.

Democratic Party elected officials, celebs, and many other Dems are fine with the “protesters” as long as they are Over There. Once they show up in their own neighborhoods and at their businesses, they want it stopped.
