The Chicago Syndrome
Atrocious murder statistics, day after day, week after week, year after year, decade after decade, seemingly defy the human brain’s ability to grasp the impact. Sadly, it is obvious that the Democrat political agenda, whatever that agenda is, trumps the lives of the residents of the city. Chicago has been controlled by liberal Democrats for a century, with no other input from any opposing political viewpoint during that time period. None. Not one. When offered help by a member of the “opposing” political party in control of the White House, Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot declined, later stating she didn’t want him to look good. Party and agenda over the lives of people, on full display.
I have tested the theory that Democrats simply do not care, in dozens of conversations with liberal friends, family, and complete strangers over the years. In most every, single, case the results are the same. My liberal opponent resorts to profanity or simply exits the conversation in frustration over their inability to overcome the fact that their beloved Democrat Party has wielded 100% authoritarian power and therefore owns the outcome of those years of control.
They will, for example, try to argue the socioeconomic factors that contribute to violent crime. Of course, when reminded it is their own party policies controlling the city for a century that have resulted in decade after decade of poverty they claim contributes to violent crime, well, here comes the 1000 yard stare. The liberal mind will attempt, in every case, to blame everything but their policies. No matter the facts laid at their feet, no matter the empirical evidence, no matter the truth, the outcome is always the same. For this reason, until and unless Chicago changes its political landscape, the carnage, violence, death, and destruction, will continue unabated, forever. The Chicago Syndrome is at work in every, single, Democrat controlled city in America.
Media manipulation is a powerful force. Because liberalism is based on emotion rather than thought, and the media knows this, the liberal mind has simply been played for so many years by their Democrat leaders, to believe the lies they’ve been told for so long, that they live in a constant state of ignorance, by design. Those liberals who refuse to admit that the mainstream media (to include, social media, television news, major print publications, etc) have been controlled by like-minded leftists for decades, are more proof of that successful manipulation. Of course as technology advances more outlets, more right wing voices are being heard, but remain belittled, by the establishment mainstream liberal press which still dominates the media landscape. That landscape will continue to paint the oppressor/oppressed narrative that drives the leftist agenda which relies completely on there being a victim, who is then preyed upon to become a member of the oppressed. The circle continues.
