Some would call this “poetic justice” or even as dumb freaking bad luck. I consider this to be, well, as Chicago Rev. Jeremiah Wright once quipped, “chickens coming home to roost.”
As reported by Fox News, “A Democratic candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint Thursday during a campaign photoshoot in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune reported that Aaron Goldstein, 42, and members of his campaign team were approached by three men in their early 20s. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.
According to the Tribune, law enforcement sources confirmed that they had no one in custody and did not release a description of the suspects. Goldstein’s campaign manager Robert Murphy, who was not with the candidate at the time, explained that he was taking promotional campaign photos with an “in-the-neighborhood kind of” message, according to the Tribune. The incident took place in Albany Park. Murphy, a Chicago committeeman, told the Tribune that no one was harmed during the robbery, and that the campaign was assured by the police that the robbery was not a targeted act. Goldstein, Murphy and campaign spokespeople did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”
Hmm, in my read of this story, I noticed something that was glaringly missing…a description of the assailants. Now, I do have to chuckle, in that these chuckleheads wanted to have an “in the neighborhood” kind of message. Well, looks like they got a real taste of the neighborhood.
This is a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy in that the progressive socialist left has created such a dire situation in many of the urban centers in America, which they control. And the despair is reflective in crime that is now off the charts, and murders that some would consider genocidal. However, it’s a problem the left has created, and one that they dismiss…until confronted with it face to face as Aaron Goldstein was.
And how interesting that Goldstein is running for the position of attorney general. Yet in speaking to the news, after the incident, he made no statement about how he would get tougher on crime. As a matter of fact, Goldstein made no reference to the high levels of crime down in “da hood” and what he would do to rectify this situation and empower the law enforcement officials to successfully do their job.
You see, Aaron Goldstein is indicative of the left. They don’t care about the issue, they care about the vote. Goldstein probably was advised by his campaign manager to not make any “truthful” statements because they need the votes. Just imagine if Goldstein had come out and stated that these were three African-American males and spoke out about the armed robbery. In the mindset of the liberal progressive left, he would have committed the ultimate sin. Therefore, he remains relatively silent.
The left in Illinois has completely turned its back on the plight of the black community in Chicago. They’re more concerned with being a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants, all to the detriment of the black community. The left couldn’t care less that you have Planned Parenthood murdering unborn black babies or the inner city genocide of black on black killings…nah, Trump is the racist.
I have to wonder… how much national coverage has been given to this story on the liberal progressive media outlets? The silence is telling. But, ask yourself, if Aaron Goldstein had been assaulted by white conservatives, it would be a national outrage, and there would be the cry of targeting.
There are crappy places in America, and Illinois attorney general candidate, Aaron Goldstein, just experienced one, first hand.
