Seventy-four people were shot and 12 were killed in the city of Chicago over the July 4th extended holiday weekend. Amazingly this gun violence occurred despite Chicago having the nation's most stringent gun control laws. Why then? Why this continued gun violence in Chicago?
The answer is pretty simple. Most of the shooters and killers this weekend are young gang bangers, young thugs who have absolutely no value of human life. Well, how did that come to be? Because one's values historically have come from one's parents, families, churches, and communities and its been the policy of Democrats over many years to replace these institutions of the family, the church, the neighborhood, and the community with the institution of the government.
And that's what they've done. The vast majority of this weekend's shooters and killers have no fathers, come from broken families, don't attend church, and aren't involved in their community. They are dependent upon government. They have no values and no respect for life.
They are taught by the government and the Al Sharpton's of the world that nothing is their fault. Racism is to blame for everything. So they are not responsible for their own actions. The white man is.
None of this should surprise us. It's time we call the Democrats and liberals out for what they've done. Don't cede the ground of compassion to them anymore. Their misguided and harmful policies over the years have destroyed families, schools, and communities and created a destructive dependency on government. Outside of the killers themselves, liberal social policy is responsible for all this gun violence. The Democrats have ruined entire generations of urban Americans.
