Odd Contradiction – Chicago Officials Support ‘Defund Police’ Movement But Cancel Police Day’s Off and Require 12hr Extended Shifts…

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has previously down-played the violence, looting and riots in the city; while simultaneously telling city aldermen they were over-hyping the problems and issues within the city.  Oddly enough Mayor Lightfoot said this while begging the looted merchants not to abandon the city… so that was always an odd juxtaposition.

Today, the contradiction gets even more weird as the entire Chicago police department; you know, those horrid people Lightfoot previously disparaged and said were unneeded; are now required to work their day’s-off and extend to 12 hour shifts.

CHICAGO – Chicago police officers on Sunday were once again ordered to work 12-hour shifts and have their days off canceled amid some protesting that has persisted in parts of the city following George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police nearly three weeks ago.

[…] Until further notice, Chicago officers who are on active duty and not on vacation will have to work the 12-hour shifts — a normal shift is about 8½ hours — and come in on their days off, the Chicago police spokesman, Luis Agostini, said Sunday morning. (read more)

Isn’t the purpose of ‘defunding‘ the police, essentially to have less policing? Apparently Chicago is doing the ‘defunding‘ thing backwards.

  1. Tell her to go pound sand! Sent up a “spider web” to defend your own for rapid response. Every single policeman should just call in ‘sick”. Protect you own and those you work with. Everyone else is on their own – let them live with what they voted for!

    The word MOONBAT does not even begin to understand and describe the lunacy of these people.

    I would have less an issue with the lovely and interesting personalities of liberalism, if they would just liberalise a broader understanding of the societal need to say NO.

    Trust me on this, a perfectly well adjusted law abiding enlighted liberal has zero issue with the application of NO in their own personal sphere of space.
    What does not square with them is the whole kit and kabootles called into question of squaring that personal space to the space just over and outside their immediacy. That frankly scares the sh*t out them.
    It calls into the picture an examination of their own humanity that liberals (aka left) tend to think is best served by extending tolerance on the political stage and being ever watchful for the Heil Demons thrown at Conservativism as if that group think will make the Scary World Safer.

    Nope…
    Welcome to the world of tommorow. The birthing of modern day Sea Peoples. The mainstreaming of anarchy within a demographic poorly equiped to think critically and rationally towards the world around them.

    They are, after all… our children.
    How can you not love them!!!
    Paging Dr Kevorkian, paging doctor…
    Wait… It is not paging these outraged triggered types are channeling Dr. Kevorkian on the world through the blood sport leftist radicals have made of the political culture.

    So yes the level Moonbattyness does not even begin to describe the cold anger feelings out there in the real real.
    The silent majority, the shake your head crowd going you can’t legislate stupidity out human DNA, the compassionate amongst us going a liberal is just a conservative that has not jump through the event horizon of their own beliefs.
    Well that crowd, them’s folks in a world turned upside down will react and are going have massive say at some point.

    I would imagine in a short while we will see these democrats/communists begin to wear some legitimizing uniform, A fake beret, badges, metals. Believe it or not masks are part of this movement. Don’t doubt me on this.
    All these morons know they are hopelessly stupid and ignorant to achieve anything more than misery which when the public sees it they will begin to cover with fake shiny things. It’s just the nature of these people.
    You see it in our society in so many ways today.
    I really didn’t understand until I thought a bit on it, it’s the pagans way. You see it in so many Godless civilizations now ours.

        There is a very heavy presence of evil on our land, it’s not only allowed it is called for. These morons are calling in evil to destroy our nation because they are unhappy in their own skin, literally, not understanding the consequences will be their own destruction. It resembles a mass possession IMHO.

    In my opinion, PDJT is playing this right. He appeals for reason and order, but lets the Governors and Mayors have the authority to screwball as the federal construct dictates.
    As with Faux Chi and Big Bird, he exposes their incompetence by letting them have the stage to exhibit their abject foolishness. If the result is that 20% of the electorate picks up on who is correct, the conservative side should have a good showing in November.

    PDJT needs to stay the course and let the incompetence accumulate. Let Leftist American Cities be the Barometer of illogic and ridiculous policy that incubates failure and disorder for all to witness.

      Its not because he is a nice guy
      its not because of his tweets
      its because everything you have witnessed the last few years is the result of a dysfunctional elite who think they are unaccountable to us and have thrown a tantrum when we ask for some accountability.
      Trump is the instrument of that accounting.

    Typical DEMocRAT Blue city mayor hypocritical leadership. Didn’t she give herself a pass to get her hair done, cause she had to look good for the people. Instead of actually looking like one of them.
    These Blue cities and states get what they voted 4. Once they drive Law and Order (Police) out Chaos and Mayhem [anarchy] will be in full force. Defend the Police or else. Better Vetting of new candidates, Better training and Better pay. Make being a COP a true profession by honoring it.

        Stan,

        The people there probably think she is doing a good job. Or, the people who will elect her. They believe her diatribe. You see- in their minds, those killings by gang members and criminals only occur because of the police. They only occur because the police force them too do those things- they have no other options. They truly think that once the police are gone, these men will just say “Hey, there’s no more coppers. I now can go get a job and not break the law. I’m so glad that hurdle is out of the way. Let’s go Jimmy those sucka coppers don’t even know. Off to the job fair!!!!”

    No, this is bigger than typical left wing hypocrisy Sundance. Look at the US military’s manual for Unconventional Warfare. Moves to defund or disband the police are part of insurrections as a way to delegitimize the state and dismantle it. Lightfoot has a role to play in advancing this insurrection. Keeping the police on duty like this – under stress and worth no breaks – is a recipe for disaster as an overworked exhausted and scared police Officer is more likely to shoot etc. She is creating future incidents for BLM Antifa et al to act on.

    Lightfoot knows the police presence will increase civil unrest, not decrease it. And she can tell her financially motivated constituents she is doing everything she can to protect their interests.

    It’s not hypocrisy it’s strategy.

    Having been one, Orwell understood the communists well.

    In George Orwell’s dystopian classic 1984, doublethink is the act of holding, simultaneously, two opposite, individually exclusive ideas or opinions and believing in both simultaneously and absolutely. Doublethink requires using logic against logic or suspending disbelief in the contradiction.

    Orwell, though he didn’t use the term, had a pretty good handle on the use of “gaslighting” in the novel 1984 as well.

    And let’s not forget the 2 minute Hate, now expanded to 24/7/365 against the new Goldstein (aka as Orangeman Bad.)
