News from Chicago....

Reports say that protesters will attempt to shut down the "Taste of Chicago" event today.

They say this will start at 4pm (Central time).

And the theme is apparently economic.

"No justice, no revenue"


Chicago Protesters Will Try To ‘Shut Down’ The Taste Of Chicago Today


Following the events in Dallas, police departments across the country are on high alert.

Chicago police must think about how they approach the next local protest, which is expected later today.

Demonstrators say they plan to “shut down” the Taste of Chicago.

The larger of at least two protests planned for today will try to disrupt the Grant Park event. On Facebook, more than 600 people committed to demonstrating around 4 p.m.

If you’ve been to the Taste before, you know how large the crowds can get on a weekend afternoon and evening. Throw in protesters, hundreds of them, it will likely be chaotic.

Soros's useful idiots are really pushing it aren't they?

Nothing like claiming to be peaceful while intruding on others trying to enjoy an event meant to have fun aye?

Their days are numbered........

The bullies of #BLM are going to run into people who aren't scared of them. Protesters are going to get beat up.

Nothing says, "I'm stupid" like denying people who have specifically made a living out of the hard work of their own two hands a chance to show case their talents and the ability to make money off of them.

Seriously, chefs at these taste of events cook. They earn a living by direct labor. It isn't like they're CEOs. I thought the general SJW argument was that CEOs only live off of exploiting the direct labor of people like chefs. So now we won't even let the people who DO make a living through their direct labor do that?!

What exactly is BLM doing again?

I think that if nothing more, this protest is just plain stupid. They say " No justice, no revenue." which I can understand. But in this climate we all know now how a peaceful protest can so easily become something else.
Peaceful protesters need to face up to living in the 21st century where a peaceful demonstration can so easily become a violent one. This idea that we can change social injustices by marching peacefully with Mr. Gandhi or Mr. King has had it's day.

Peaceful protest organizers need to take into account how easy it is to have their protests usurped by those with violent intent. To set up a 'peaceful protest' that will automatically bring in hordes of riot police is only asking for trouble, trouble that can so easily overshadow the message of the organizers. I have to question their intent here. If there is a high degree of possibility that someone else will use your protest as cover for their own intentions, these 'peaceful' organizers need to choose their battles more wisely.

Those stands and kiosks should be much easier to loot and burn than a 7-11.

they should shut down all the shootings and homicides in urban chicago over this weekend. spend energy in more useful way.
as we speak , statistically there's already 5 dead as I type this; statistically, the purp and victim , both black.
statistically, by the end of the weekend it will be at least a 3000% difference in the amount of blacks cops shoot vs. blacks shot by other blacks in Chicago.

why don't they shut that down first....

Ever heard of Gordon Ramsey?

You really shouldn't annoy the guy who lives in a hot kitchen all day surrounded by sharp metal things.

Where did I mention guns?

Protest at the police department, city hall, the Mayors mansion, what the hell kind of support do the idiots expect to get going to an entertaining event and disturbing those who just want to get out for the day and enjoy themselves?

Seems to me you Progs got guns on the brain.....

That seems to be an unsettling trend that has become more noticeable.

Why not shut down the criminal activity that plagues Chicago which in turn spawns the gun violence which is killing more black people than any police force could.

No, that wouldn't make sense because that would take the ability to take responsibility for more black on black crime and death than what any police force could or would want to inflict overall.

The hypocrisy is so thick.

We kill each other more than police apparently do so no revenue for anyone.

Simply idiotic.

So do they have a coherent message about what people can even do to help them? It just seems like a nonstop temper tantrum.

I'm not saying I don't agree. I do, but I'm pointing out that they know which endeavor is less risky and they're taking the easy road. Law-abiding people trying to sell the food they've worked hard to prepare to other law abiding people are less likely in Chicago to have guns. Trying to impede the slaughter of gang members by other gang members is much more likely to get them caught in the cross fire.

In a cynical sense, we can see that their lives do indeed matter ... to them!

I agree that's it an unsettling trend, but it's not just the folks on the right itching for violence.

Not sure how, but we need to unite as Americans and stop this left/right, black/white blame game.
