Knights Party Press Release: Jan. 25. 2023

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot expects the public to do her job for her. The Blaze, on Monday January 23rd., published this headline, “Don’t want to get mugged? Stop using cash, says Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.”

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot told viewers that one of the solutions to ending crime in the city is for citizens to stop carrying cash to the best of their ability, as reported by News Channel 20.

Lightfoot is running for reelection. In a candidate debate, the mayor was asked about safety concerns, one of the hottest topics for the people of Chicago.

Particularly regarding the safety of street vendors, Lightfoot said that “we’ve heard a lot of rhetoric here, a lot of sound bites, but not a lot of concrete solutions on how we get the job done and make our residents and our workers safe.”

The moderator interjected by asking, “I think the follow-up is, ‘And your solution is?'”

“I just explained it,” Lightfoot responded.

Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally based in Harrison, Arkansas spoke from his office saying, “Like most big cities in America, Chicago is overrun with crime. As a matter of fact, criminals are running these larger cities. In the case of Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot, being black, and homosexual, she doesn’t want control of her city because she doesn’t want to make enemies with the 29% of blacks, and the 7.5% that identify as homosexual in Chicago. She doesn’t want to crack down on crime in Chicago because she would lose voters. She depends on those black and homosexual votes, and without them, she’ll never be re-elected. The statistics in America are this, 13% of America’s population is black, which isn’t a high percentage at all, but that 13% causes over half the crimes in America. Chicago is only 29% black, and 45% White, but you would never know that because blacks commit more crimes statistically than Whites. That being said, if Mayor Lightfoot got tough on crime, she would probably lose that 29% of black voters, and the 7.5% that identify as homosexual. This is why White people are called racist. If you go by statistics, by facts, blacks are destroying America, and if we call them out on that fact, we’re called racist. The truth isn’t racist.”
