The left is famous for the politics of hate and the Democrats; especially the hard left of the party excel at it. None though can hold a candle to the slime that pervades the Chicago political machine. While hate riddled attacks on opponents their families and especially their children are the stock in trade of the ‘intellectual’ leadership of the party, Mayor Daley takes the cake.
Asked about the effectiveness of the cities draconian gun laws by a reporter at a press conference he picked up a rifle that was on display and come out with:
"It's been very effective," Daley, said, "If I put this up your butt, you'll find out how effective it is. Let me put a round up your, you know."
Another aspect of their character is to go into histrionics at every chance to claim the other side is threatening them. When Palin came out with a list of Democrat Congressmen she referred to as targets to be defeated in the mid-terms with the comment: “Don’t Retreat, Instead — Reload!” a hysterical chorus erupted in the media.
Democrats everywhere (according to the media) were wetting themselves in fear, going into hiding and cowering in corners quivering in abject terror, sobbing, “She’s so scary.”
Anyway it has come to pass that an 80-year-old Korean War Veteran who had been robbed before had bought a gun. An armed robber broke into his house where his wife and 12-year-old great grandson were present and fired two shots at him. In response he shot him in the chest, killing the bastard.
When asked if the 80-year-old would be charged for violating the city's gun ban, Mayor Richard Daley, who recently threatened to put a gun up the posterior of a reporter questioning the ban's effectiveness, said: "I don't know.”
Pressed further on the incident, Daley, who goes nowhere in the city without armed protection, cautioned, "guns is not the answer to the problems that we see in a home, in the streets of America. It's as simple as that."
It is incredible that any authority would even consider such an action as to charge a citizen under these circumstances.
