This loon is freaking crazy. Notice too that he delivered this speech at radical Father Pfleger’s wacky church.
NBC Chicago, via News Alert:

The pervasion of illegal guns in America’s black and Latino communities is a result of “government-sponsored racism,” akin to “slavery, segregation, black codes [and] Jim Crow,” Rahm Emanuel’s new police chief, Garry McCarthy, told parishioners at St. Sabina’s Church earlier this month.

“This is sensitive. You know, because everybody’s afraid of race. Have you noticed that? Everybody’s afraid of race. I’m not afraid of race,” said McCarthy, who told of growing up in the Bronx with guns, gangs and drugs plentiful.

“Let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting scared? Government sponsored racism.”

“Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy: Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children,” he said.

McCarthy blasted the NRA, telling parishioners that their communities have paid the price while the gun manufacturers are getting “rich and living in gated communities.”

And he told an anecdote of just one night with the New York Police Department. After returning home from investigating a pair of shootings, he said he flipped on the television to relax, only to find “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” being broadcast.

“She was caribou hunting, and talking about the right to bear arms,” he said. “Why wasn’t she at the crime scene with me?”

“[McCarthy] got it right on parts and got it wrong on others,” said Shawn Gowder, the Vice President of the Chicago Firearms Safety Association and the Sergeant of Arms for the African American Police League.

Gowder said McCarthy was right in remarking that government-sponsored racism began with slavery and Jim Crow, but said it was wrong to make the association with that and the availability of guns.

And the Palin bashing?, the demorats are terrified of her! This all coming from Chicago’s top cop who was placed there by Rahm Emanuel, one of odumbo’s cronnies. What a pack of RATS(DEMO)!!

  • STL Hawkeye

    Yeah, when I come home from a long day at work and turn on the T.V. and Cops is on, I thank Barack Obama and liberals for how ****ed up this country is.

  • Missy8s

    Scratching my head…???

    One of the primary purposes of “Jim Crow” laws was to DISARM blacks and keep them defenseless against the Klan.

    This guy is an idiot.

    Black people shoot other black people. That is Sarah Palin’s fault. Got it.

    Chicago Top Cop Blames Sarah Palin & Racism For City’s Gun Violence

    Well, racism is the hallmark of the party that for ages has been run by the Kennedys, the KKK and Obozo, namely the Dems, so I can believe that if he insists. However, how Palin can influence Chicago is beyond me!

  • GrayRider

    Another liberal moron ASSHAT.

  • GrayRider

    BTW…the only “government sponsored racism” is from the DEMOCRAT Party who has a long shameful history of racism.

    Which “gun” law on the books exactly requires any black or illegal to purchase and use a weapon to murder/rape/rob someone with? Amazing to always blame a tool or object that one does not like instead of the real issue. Double speak at it’s finest as usual. As one who has used my “state approved carry weapon” twice in my life to deter those misunderstood “African American” males who only wanted to lighten my wallet and such; guess my racism was showing so they needed to do that, they did not at that point see their interest being furthered and moved on upon sight of it. Guess they decided on to other less prepared opportunities. True, I am not one who brags about my black friends, of which I have none, don’t speak Spanish and I don’t intend on learning it. I do hear from those who say I need those friends to truly understand where they are coming from. Truthfully, if they had grown up as I did, they would be the one learning. They don’t care to listen, so why should I? The day is coming I fear when you will be required to defend oneself from these cretins everywhere, but I am a fear monger I am told. Time will tell.

    This one of the reasons this administation and the like is soooo dilusional. A perfact example of lipo-suck out gray matter and insert fecal matter!!!

    Chicago: the next Detroit.

    Most gun crimes in Chicago are black on black. Sara Palin’s audience is not heavily black, in fact I doubt if any of the gun crime perps have ever accessed her website or weatched a video of her. This is a typical “big lie” put out by the left in the hopes if is repeated often enough it will be believed.

    Thank God for the internet and Jim Hoft that right thinking readers can challenge these utter falsehoods.

    The pervasion of illegal guns in America’s black and Latino communities is a result of “government-sponsored racism,” akin to “slavery, segregation, black codes [and] Jim Crow,” Rahm Emanuel’s new police chief …

    He is blaming the Democrats and their KKK for all their ills … And probably doesn’t even know it.

  • succotash

    Expect to see more of this crap as 2012 approaches. Drooling neanderthals!

  • JPeden

    More “nuanced” Prog humor, I suspect. DemoKKKrats have been running most of “America’s black and latino communities” since well before Sarah Palin had even graduated from HS. But at least the people there have now been upgraded to “Moose”.

  • Chisum

    I read that BO is celebrating his 50th birthday in Chicago with a major fundraiser for his reelection campaign.

    It sounds to me as if McCarthy is trying out democrat party talking points.

  • BarryT

    Chicago is nothing more than an imploding Sh** hole. Who really cares what it’s leaders think, say or do???? For that matter, who really cares about Chicago? It provides nothing of value to this country.

  • Nano

    And this guy has a badge and a weapon. Be afraid really.

  • Stephana

    blacks killing blacks and others with illegal guns. Now it is Sarahs fault? What about the years of demonrat government?

  • Tawny Jones

    Chicago was one of the most violent cities in America back in the 1920’s & 30’s, long before Sarah Palin was born. Oh, right: She was aready in spirit form, riding the backs of owls, chanting evil incantations.
