Onetime architect of the Barack Obama White House, now Mayor of Chicago - one of the most violent, crime-ridden cities in America - Rahm Emanuel is the personification of the morality and philosophy of the Democratic party circa 2012. With two deft moves, he encapsulates where the party of the Left is going - and attempting to take all of us.
First, the destruction of the Constitution. You've seen Obama shred it, now watch Rahm ignore the First Amendment as he block Chick-Fil-A from expanding in Chicago simply because their ownership holds - gasp! - conservative social views:
“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,” Emanuel said Wednesday.
“What the CEO has said as it relates to gay marriage and gay couples is not what I believe, but more importantly, it’s not what the people of Chicago believe. We just passed legislation as it relates to civil union and my goal and my hope … is that we now move on recognizing gay marriage. I do not believe that the CEO’s comments … reflects who we are as a city.”
Remember, Chick-Fil-A has never been accused of any anti-gay discrimination in its hiring or serving practices. Their president simply affirmed he supports traditional marriage (which the linked Sun-Times article refers to as "anti-gay views" in its opening sentence!), which is apparently now enough for a Democrat to ban you from their jurisdiction.
Agree with them, serve them, or be run out of town, and out of business. Thuggish much?
And speaking of which...watch Rahm show the city what he really thinks of the Jews:
Ignoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday welcomed the army of men dispatched to the streets by Farrakhan to stop the violence in Chicago neighborhoods.
Ald. Debra Silverstein (50th), an Orthodox Jew, has said it’s good that Farrakhan is “helping” in the fight against crime, “but it doesn’t eradicate the comments that he’s made about the Jewish community.”
Emanuel offered no such caveat...
Speaking your mind - politely - about gay marriage: EVIL. Leading vicious attacks against the Jews in America and worldwide: GOOD.
Or put more broadly, there is no freedom of thought in liberalism. And Jews are simply money spigots, and disposable ones at that. Certainly allowing the city to of Chicago be "patrolled" by an army of anti-Semetic thugs should make that clear to even the dimmest Jew.
This is not a unique worldview to Rahm Emanuel. It is held by virtually all Democrats, from Barack Obama on down.
Remember, the German people originally voted the Nazis into power, while ignoring some of the virtually identical warning signs. We repeat history at our peril...
