Chicago circling the drain

Update on male Karens.

Coordinated looting.

Then last night, a second wave of looting erupted in Chicago, including both in the downtown and in the luxury shopping district just north of downtown known as the “Miracle Mile.” There are many videos of the looting, which appears to have been orchestrated on social media.

I’m just completely mystified about the thought process. Let’s assume the worst for the police as to the incident on Sunday. Even so, how is that somehow a bigger issue than the well-over-300 blacks murdered so far this year in Chicago by people who are not the police? And again, even if you assume the worst about the police incident, how is looting an appropriate response? Encouraging young black people to go out on looting sprees is making them completely unemployable in any professional job and ruining whatever chance they might have had for high paying jobs and careers. The demonstrators shout “black lives matter” while they destroy black lives by the hundreds or thousands.

For Windwatchers.  Vestas lose big on blade repairs attributed to “intense lightning”. And the Chinese keep building bigger windmills. 10MW!

The OEM has connected a prototype of its D10000-185 model to the grid at China Three Gorge’s 280MW Fuqing Xinghua Gulf II demonstration site off Fujian province in the south-east of the country.

Its direct-drive, typhoon-resistant 10MW turbine with a 185-metre rotor is the first 10MW-plus offshore wind turbine manufactured by a Chinese company to be grid-connected.

    This has been a long time coming.
    The left have utterly destroyed society around their crap hole cities.
    They pay mothers extra cash to leave their partners, ensuring children are not raised well.
    They price fix rents causing insane market imbalance, ensuring maximum unfairness, unequal opportunities, and impacts from class differences.
    Then when rioting begins they call it protesting and side with the rioters, because they have to add it’s literally their constituency.

    Now the rioters know they are immune. There is no law or order. Democrats hold power and will keep holding power. They have a free pass to do what they want.

    Joe Biden made the pick that maximized his chances of continuing to make the race a straight referendum on Trump while also selecting someone whose resume suggests being ready to step in, if and when Biden decides to step aside. | Analysis by ‪@CillizzaCNN

    Joe Biden: I Picked Kamala Harris Because She’s ‘Ready to Lead on Day One’

    Joe Biden (D), the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, said on Wednesday that he selected Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate because she is “ready to lead on day one.”

    The remark comes as Americans continue to doubt his mental fitness and overall ability to lead, with the majority of likely voters indicating the belief that his running mate will take over during his first term.

    “If @KamalaHarris and I are elected, we’re going to inherit multiple crises, a nation divided, and a world in disarray. “We won’t have a minute to waste,” Biden said in a Wednesday tweet. “That’s exactly why I picked her: She’s ready to lead on day one”:

    The neighbourhood that I used to live in — very upscale and just north of downtown — was affected. There were robberies just across the street from my former place.

    I believe the latest rationale is that looting is just black folks getting reparations for slavery.

  8. billie

    law and order has broken down in Chicago, if people think it is ok to organise and riot and steal

    after years of neglect, who would have thought eh?

    consequences of the Obama legacy?

    Those who have never been slaves getting reparations from those who have never owned slaves?

    US Prez Election comments from WLS radio Chicago, Wednesday morning Mancow Show.

    “Joe picked Kamala because she smelled the best.”

    “The Joe and Kamala ticket = pee pads and knee pads”

    I believe the latest rationale is that looting is just black folks getting reparations for slavery.

    Never mind that the last slave in the U.S. was freed more than 150 years ago; long before anyone currently living was born.
    The irony is that many of the people they are looting from are themselves black.
    It amazes me, those who promote or condone acts of criminality as being morally righteous.

    If only Chicago had a spokesman- a respected representative- someone with a record of service, a community organizer- with political knowledge and experience- with both lived experience of growing up a POC in America, talking to the disaffected, and gaining common cause with the wider non-POC community?

  13. Snoopy

    Imagine what Chicago would be like without 8 years of Obama’s racial healing.

  14. Zyconoclast

    Let it burn.
    It is the will of the people.

  15. a happy little debunker

    It is a measure as to how flawed the Biden campaign is that the introduction of a VP has energized both Republicans and Democrats…
    It would appear that Democrats are planning to vote for a Presidency beginning sometime around 2022 and running for a decade – whilst the Republican are wanting a vote for a Presidency for the next 4 years.

    Let’s not forget that Obama came from the Chicago democrat machine.

    I was there in ’93 and absolutely loved it. Now it’s just another filthy violent utterly dysfunctional third world Dumbocrat shithole.

    What’s happened to New York, San Francisco and Chicago (my three favourite US cities) over the last two decades is a salutatory lesson in the destructive capabilities of collectivism.

    Some areas of the major cities in the US have descended into anarchy and the unrest is spreading daily.

    Militant blacks in the US have been calling for a race war for years and have gleefully jumped on the Floyd/BLM bandwagon. An added extra is all the high end goodies the “protestors” can liberate from the upscale city stores.

    The Usual Suspects in Oz have attempted to get a ride on the bandwagon, but have had to desperately rake through historical aboriginal deaths for a Cause du Jour.

    Low rent.

    Too stupid to realise they are seriously outnumbered and outgunned? Also pretty easy IFF.

    Well, I guess its a step ahead of trashing Ronald McDonald house with the sick kids and parents inside as they did elsewhere.

    That, despite McDonald’s woke, virtue-signalling support for BLM.
    Go woke, go broke.

  25. Catfeesh?

    Yeah. Wokeness doesn’t save you from the mob, the mob doesn’t give a shit.

  26. Lee

    True.
    The mob also trashed a CNN building, one of their greatest supporters.

    Wokes mugged by reality again. So 1960s retro. See Tom Woolf Radical Chic.

    The first piece is set in the duplex on Park Avenue in Manhattan inhabited by conductor Leonard Bernstein, his wife the actress Felicia Cohn Montealegre, and their three children. Bernstein assembled many of his wealthy socialite friends to meet with representatives of the controversial Black Panthers and discuss ways to help their cause.[2] The party was a typical affair for Bernstein, a longtime Democrat, who was known for hosting civil rights leaders at such parties.[3]

    The Bernsteins’ usual staff of white South Americans served the party.[4] Some of the Bernsteins’ typical friends in the arts and guests in journalism (including Oscar-nominated director Otto Preminger and television reporter Barbara Walters) are labeled the “radical chic”, as Wolfe characterizes them as pursuing radical ends for social reasons, partially because organizations like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People had become mainstream.[1] Wolfe’s criticism is implicitly of the general phenomenon of white guilt and armchair agitation becoming facets of high fashion.[5]

    I really have no issue with them killing each other. Couldn’t care less, in fact.

    When you look at the number of deaths against the numbers of bullets fired on a Chicago weekend though, you do wonder how badly they would fare in a full-scale insurrection. Too busy looking gangsta (nomesayin?) to worry about little things like targeting.
