Mayor Lightfoot Pleads With Walmart, Other Retailers To Not Abandon Chicago
Mayor Lightfoot said she was on a conference call with Walmart and other major retailers that had stores looted or heavily damaged during the unrest in Chicago. She said she pleaded with them to not abandon Chicago.
“ABANDON” Chitcago? I beg to differ, Madame Kommissar: they were BURNED and LOOTED out of Chitcago. With your explicit endorsement, lest we forget. So you might want to consider sitting back and sucking on the fattest moose cock you can find while you’re reaping what you sowed. Hinderaker puts it way more civilly than I ever will:
Why, exactly, would major retailers choose to rebuild and re-open stores that were burned to the ground or otherwise destroyed by rioters? What is there in the current response to riots by big city politicians that provides any assurance that the same thing won’t happen again? If you owned a store in an area that was destroyed by rioters, would you invest more money in the same location? Why?
John has a lot more along those same lines, and you should read of it, for It Is Good.

I do feel for the innocent people that live in those neighborhoods, IF they are voting against the plantation overlords. If they are voting for the usual progs then F’em, they deserve no consideration.
Were I Wal Mart etc. I’d close up for good.
Quick, cue up the standard media weeping and wailing about how “under served” these neighborhoods are, how they are “food deserts” that need more investment and job opportunities, etc.
It is difficult to keep my response to evil slime like Lightfoot polite. But I am confident she won’t care, as her re-election with 90+% margins is guaranteed.
