Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot: The Only Place Protesting Isn’t Allowed is On My Block

If the Onion or the Babylon Bee said this as a satire headline, it would be too on the nose. But she actually said this:

Does anyone else, though?

“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.”

She had her Praetorian Guard stationed in front of her house ensuring her own safety:

Meanwhile she barely lifts a finger as the Magnificent Mile is smashed to pieces and looted.

This is the same limousine liberal mindset of demanding diversity in public schools, then sending their kids to private schools. Exact same thing.

Lori, no one denies you are receiving death threats. No one denies that this is a uniquely dangerous and chaotic period of time in the city.

People don’t have a problem with you taking efforts to protect yourself. We have a problem with you not doing jack-shit to protect everyone else. Instead of protecting only yourself, why don’t you impose law and order on the whole city? “Protesting” isn’t just bad on your block, it’s bad everywhere. We hate it as much as you do.

This is modern “let them eat cake” elite indifference to the masses. She couldn’t care less about all the mayhem and destruction in the city–until it creeps into her neighborhood.
