It’s the Chicago way.
We all remember the Black Lives Matter campaign to go after American history and the Italian-American community in Chicago by pulling down the city’s famous Columbus statue. Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot easily gave in to them and we now know just how hard she went after Columbus.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot blocked a deal the Chicago Park District made with an Italian American group to allow a Christopher Columbus statue to be displayed in a parade and made obscene remarks aimed at government lawyers during a contentious meeting, a high-ranking lawyer alleged in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
Is there anyone who seriously doubts it?
Smyrniotis alleges he then worked with lawyers for the Italian Americans to make a deal. As part of negotiations, the group wanted to display the Columbus statue in its annual Columbus parade last fall and proposed putting the statue last in the parade and covered until the end, according to Smyrniotis’ lawsuit.
Lightfoot refused to allow even that.
When Lightfoot learned about the plan, Smyrniotis alleges in his lawsuit, she threatened to pull the permit for the parade and ordered Park District officials to attend a hastily called Zoom meeting.
This is sheer racist thuggery.
“Get that f—— statue back before noon tomorrow or I am going to have you fired,” Lightfoot said, according to the complaint.
“You make some kind of secret agreement with Italians. … You are out there stroking your d—- over the Columbus statue, I am trying to keep Chicago police officers from being shot and you are trying to get them shot,” Lightfoot said, according to the complaint. “My d— is bigger than yours and the Italians, I have the biggest d— in Chicago.”
This is what a racist terrorist sounds like. Italian-Americans have to stop celebrating Columbus or Black Lives Matter terrorists will shoot cops.
Ron Onesti, president of the Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans, said he’s “literally outraged that someone in her position would ever use words like that to refer to any group of individuals.”
“When will it end with the disrespect?” Onesti said, referring to the mayor’s alleged comments as “grotesque.”
But at least there will be statues of Lightfoot up on houses across the city every Halloween.
