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 this is the guy who will be in charge next year when the G8 and NATO summits come to town. So the Chicago Way will be going beyond national to worldwide. . . just in time for the election. Is it too much to hope that people’s eyes will be opening up in the next year?

    The pervasion of illegal guns??? You may wonder where Garry McCarthy got his sorry-ass education. The Wayans Brothers’ Booked on Phonices answers that question.

    I went home the other day and turned on the TV to relax and there was Ed Schultz. Why wasn’t he at work with me?

    #17: Answer: Because the church is afraid of Fr. Pfleger and the state is afraid of his constituents.

    What did Mayor Washington do to correct these problems?

    Our family has traditionally taken a three day trip to Chicago to shop for fall clothes. I am canceling that trip.

    “who told of growing up in the Bronx with guns, gangs and drugs plentiful.”

    And Palin was responsible for that too?

    I suspect we will be seeing a big move by WTF and team against the Second Amendment very soon. This story tied with the Operation Fast and Furious and others such as the one about looking at a back door option on gun ownership seems to be a lead up to a major development. As I have said elsewhere Fast and Furious is a big deal that needs to be pushed. It has the potential to damage the Administration at a time when it count most. All the other BS is small time distractions, Gun Walker has potential. Pajamas Media has been on this story as well as Big and Michelle Malkin Daily. We need to force this story to the forefront of the Nations awareness now, and keep it there, Weiner stayed in the blogs daily for better than 3 weeks, we need this story pushed, or we are just whistling in the dark.

    I feel about the gangbangers killing each other much like many a person must have felt about the Soviets and the Nazis killing each other by the millions.

    Where do I donate extra ammo?

    Another stupid, loudmouth police politician. F**k you McCarthy, you two bit political whore.

  • agentbrianterry’sghost

    OT, and yet not:

    ‘The Post prints an attack on Issa that no other paper saw fit to run: an anonymous hit job concocted by the Obama administration. And The Times finally talks Gunwalker … by attacking the GOP. With a debunked lie.’


  • Rock

    What WTF was saying with Hope and Change was quite simply make me the One, and I will attack and demonize the the whites of this nation. He and his league of raciest followers have been the most destructive influence on race relation in this country in my life time. Gang Bangers killing each other and anyone caught in the crossfire is raciest action by whites, please in what world does this POS live?

  • bicentennialguy

    It’s amazing…Sarah Palin is almost as powerful as George W. Bush. Look at what they are capable of doing! Who knew?

  • owl

    Scary? I said that word about a thousand times while Obama was doing his Deceiver Campaign. AG Holder is actually more than I could imagine. Now this from a Police Chief? Nutty as fruitcakes and it is in the position of power.

    “One of the primary purposes of “Jim Crow” laws was to DISARM blacks and keep them defenseless against the Klan.”
    — And the plaintiff in that Second Amendment case in the news recently was a black man who wanted to protect himself from the gangs plaguing his neighborhood. Most of the white leftists who love Obama would prefer that such people be disarmed — and leave it to the police to investigate the crime scene afterward.

    I was in the west side of Chicago three weeks ago on a mission trip. Drugs openly being dealt on nearly every corner in the neighborhood I was in. Drugs were everywhere. Very few police cars. Mom and pop liquor stores on every corner with big signs “Link Card Accepted here” and “Lotto”.

    Stickers on ever stop sigh that say, “Please Don’t Kill Me.”

    The people who live in the neighborhood accept this as their way of life. They can’t fix it, so the accept it.

    This is the inter city society that Jessi, Al and Obama promote. Give them everything so they vote democrat.

    How any of this relates to Sarah Palin is beyond me. Does the NRA promote drugs? Do they promote Flash Mobs in retail stores? Do they promote beating students with boards as they leave school? Do they promote theft of anything that is not tied down?

    Eliminate the free ride and the drugs to break the cycle and things will get better.

    I’m sure in the ‘hood they tuned in to watch Sarah plug some caribou for food.

    This is why the Left wants to make sure minorities remain poor, uneducated, raised in broken families headed by teen moms, and permanently on the dole. More susceptible to lies and manipulation.

    Frankly this had to have been done so nobody in the ghetto would get mad at the crackdown on flash mob violence.


    You are witnessing the downfall of the 2nd amendment. This is the beginning of how it will go down. There will be stories in the media, then a supreme court decision, and executive orders. They will come for the registered firearms, and they will request you turn in your unregistered firearms (or face prison time, if caught).

    This is what they did in Germany, Austria in the late 1930’s. This is history repeating itself. People will make a stand here and there and the media will jump in and say! See, this is why we have to take guns from these crazy Tea Party people. Wake up, it is beginning. It will continue.

    How do we stop it?? We have to organize with like minded Patriots, we have to be ready to fight en-mass. I don’t care if you are willing to die for our constitution, our country, your family.

    Are you willing to kill for them??

    The people of Chicago should be sickened. embarrassed, and scared. This ignoramus can’t tell victims from perpetrators or cause from effect, and has an illiterate’s understanding of history.

    “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.”

    As others have pointed out, all those evils were perpetrated by his own party in places where, like Chicago, they ran the government top to bottom. Including Chiefs of Police, who criminalized legal self-defense by citizens and sanctioned violent assault by members of their own party. Republicans were among the victims.

    Ignorance, stupidity, and an insistent blindness to history are hallmarks of the modern Democratic Party. Don’t any Democrats have enough decency to be ashamed?

    Did I hear him right, did he just admit to destroying an active crime scene. Idiot!! This clown is all bark, Newark’s crime tripled during his watch
