Chicago Mayor’s Grocery Store Scam Is a Smokescreen for Left-wing Crime

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson is Really showing his socialist credibility.

He announced plans to eventually open municipal grocery stores in Chicago’s so-called food deserts, following the closure of four Wal-Marts and a Whole Foods.

In other words: Soviet-style central planning!

What could go wrong?

Well, aside from the fact that Windy City operates on neighborhood-style machine politics and consistently ranks first in the country in corruption.

Or that its budgetary profligacy and mismanagement have left it facing a budget deficit of more than half a billion; its bonds were considered junk until 2022.

But wait: why did all these stores close in the first place?

Hmmm. Perhaps a massive 32% increase in thefts and thefts over the course of 2022 to date has something to do with it.

This is due to disastrous city and state policing policies – including the complete elimination of cash bail – and a Soros-backed pro-crime “prosecutor” (Kim Foxx, who thankfully , will not run again next year).

Yes, the plan fits into the Twitter left’s favored rhetoric: the move aims to “repair past harms that contributed to deliberate divestment and exclusion.”

But the only harm here comes from the policies favored by Johnson’s comrades, policies that have caused crime in Chicago to increase by 29% this year, across all categories, compared to the same period in 2022.

Indeed, Johnson is even more soft on crime than his predecessor, Lori Lightfoot.

When a massive crowd of teenagers went on a rampage of assaults and robberies in downtown Chicago, Johnson defended them, believing that it was not useful to “demonize young people who would otherwise have been deprived of opportunities in their own communities”.

And he just launched a lawsuit against Kia and Hyundai because. . . people started stealing the cars they make.

In other words, as long as Johnson remains at the helm, the city’s “food desert” problem will only get worse as public safety continues to erode.

That cannot be solved by farcical Soviet-style economic interventions.
