By the slimmest of margins Chicago elected a radical Marxist racialist (if not racist) to be its next mayor proving once again that what’s left of Chicago prefers crime, high taxes, racial division and dystopia over prosperity and peace. Either that or a majority of voters there are brain-dead morons. Brandon Johnson ran on defunding the police, dramatically higher taxes and pitting “poor blacks against rich whites”, his words not mine, and openly that he is black and his opponent white. In other words, racism.
As a former resident of the metropolis who witnessed its renaissance in the 1980’s into the 2000’s I weep for what was once a great city turned into a Marxist dystopia by inept, corrupt, evil Democrats. I fear the city cannot be saved – Chicago can’t even save itself. In 10 years Chicago will be 2008 Detroit – bankrupt, destitute and crime-ridden. I guess the only bright side is that the “conservative” who ran on saving the city lost by a mere 3 points. If this election had occurred prior to 2020 he would have lost by 20 to the Marxist.
