Chicago Mayor Daley: Big Friggin' Jerk

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley's behavior at a recent press conference about the Supreme Court's review of the Chicago gun ban provided further evidence that those who support gun bans hold neither the intellectual nor moral high ground in the debate. When asked by a reporter about the effectiveness of the city's gun ban (a fair question since Chicago is one of the most violent cities in the nation), Mayor Daley threatened to anally rape the reporter with a confiscated rifle that the mayor was holding and fire it up the reporter's rectum.

"It's been very effective," Daley said, holding the weapon. "If I put this up your butt, you'll find out how effective it is. Let me put a round up your, you know." Imagine the media uproar there would be if the NRA's Wayne LaPierre or a conservative politician made a similar remark to some reporter who questioned the effectiveness of the Second Amendment.

Still waiting for the Supreme Court to return a ruling on McDonald v. City of Chicago, Daley made another comment that would have been called "incitement of violence" had it been said by Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck. "You have to have confidence in the Supreme Court. Maybe they'll see the light of day," Daley said at a news conference. "Maybe one of them will have an incident and they'll change their mind overnight, going to and from work." [Emphasis added.]

Bawb has given numerous examples of liberals freely using hate-filled speech while the "Tea Party" movement gets painted as violent extremists. Please add Mayor Daley's comments to your tally, dear brother.

Hopefully, when the Supreme Court returns its ruling, they will be sticking the Chicago gun ban up Daley's butt. Expect hearty guffaws from these quarters on that day.

Is it just me, or does he remind you of Robert DiNero as Al Capone in "The Untouchables"?

"I want him DEAD! I want his family DEAD! I want his house burnt to the GROUND!"

As if we needed any more proof that Chicago politics are even more corrupt now than they were then.

A Gun For Grandpa

Second Amendment: Chicago is deciding whether to prosecute a great-grandfather and Korean War veteran under its handgun ban. He refused to be a victim, and now there's one less armed thug roaming the streets. What's the problem? ...

The vet obtained the gun in violation of the city's handgun ban after a prior incident in which the couple was robbed at gunpoint by three armed intruders. So when Anthony Nelson — a parolee with a record of drug and gun arrests — tried breaking into their East Garfield Park home, they were ready.

Nelson fired twice at the as-yet-unnamed homeowner, who walks with a cane but retained enough of his military marksmanship to drop the intruder with a single gunshot to the chest. Yet in some quarters, instead of being hailed as a hero, it's the homeowner who's being considered a threat and the armed predator a victim of gun violence.

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. Thank you very much." Of course, if the homeowner didn't have the gun, he might not be alive to be charged.

Pressed further on the incident, Daley, who goes nowhere in the city without armed protection, cautioned that "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." Sorry, mayor, but in this incident calling 911 was not an option and armed intruders do not obey gun bans.
