Biden Didn’t Say Their Names In Chicago
Biden Didn’t Say Their Names In Chicago
We were told that Joe Biden was Mr. Empathy. Because of the various tragedies in his life, he understood grief. President Donald Trump, we were told, had no heart and didn’t understand suffering. If you do an internet search, of “Joe Biden” and “empathy”, the entire first page is how Joe Biden must be elected to the Presidency because of his empathy. It was, then, surprising that Biden met Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot at the airport in Chicago, on his way to Crystal Lake to sell his Build Back Better program, and didn’t mention the shooting victims of last weekend.
Well, I lied. I wasn’t actually surprised at all. Joe Biden has been a lying sack of sewer rat excrement for decades. He doesn’t care a jot about the American people. And, frankly, I don’t want a weeping President to feel my pain. The American people apparently do and that’s why Biden got 80 million votes and Trump only got 75 million votes. I don’t believe that either so don’t hate on me.
While Lightfoot greeted Biden at the airport, she may have asked for help with the gun violence in her city.

But, Chicago doesn’t have a gun violence problem. It has a gang violence problem. The guns are just one of the symptoms. If your city has a map to gang territories, as Chicago does, you have a problem. The Chicago Gang Territory map is here and it is a frightening read. Lori Lightfoot whinges that people are meanies to her because they are racist and hate women. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with her galactic incompetence. Last year, Victory Girls’ own Deanna wrote about Lori Lightfoot and her careful treading around the defund the police movement while toddlers were being killed in the city.
Lori Lightfoot didn’t mention those killed or wounded in the previous 48 hours in Chicago. Joe Biden the Empathetic didn’t say their names. So, we will will say their names.
Terriana Smith was one month old when she was shot in the head:
Englewood neighborhood activist Charles McKenzie’s 1-month-old niece continues to fight for her life after she and a half-dozen others were hit by gunfire in Englewood Thursday.
“It hurts when you get a call. You out here fighting against gun violence every single day, yourself,” McKenzie said before he was overcome by emotion.
“I’ll finish for him. It’s hard,” said Darryl Smith, Englewood Political Task Force. “We’re out here fighting every day for everybody, and it hit home. That’s what he wanted to say. It hit home this time.”
One-month-old Terriana Smith remains hospitalized after being shot in the head during a brazen daytime attack near 66th and Halsted Street in Englewood. The baby is in guarded condition after having successful surgery Friday morning.
“It didn’t touch her brain. So it was just like at the top of her head, so they just had to close it up,” said Geneva Everett, the victim’s sister.
Chrys Carvajal was a 19 year old Army National Guardsman, and aspiring policeman, killed just days before his twentieth birthday:
Chrys Carvajal was found lying on a sidewalk unresponsive with gunshot wounds at approximately 1:23 a.m. Saturday morning in the 2200 block of North Lockwood, police said. Officers were first called to the area after a report of shots fired.
Family members told NBC 5 Carvajal had been home for less than a month and had plans to return to the National Guard base in Riverside when he was gunned down early Saturday.
“He fought for our country,” Jennifer Ramirez, Carvajal’s sister, said. “He left the National Guard to come visit his family. He was fighting for our country. He comes to Chicago, he gets killed in the streets of Chicago.”
According to police, there were no initial witnesses to the incident and further details weren’t immediately known. No one was in custody as of Sunday night.
Carvajal’s family said he would have celebrated his 20th birthday on July 9. He wanted to become a Chicago Police officer to support the community.
Max Lewis chose to end his life rather than live as a quadriplegic. He was an innocent victim of gang violence. He was sitting on a stopped train on his way home from his summer internship when he was shot:
Lewis’ mother, Dr. Rebecca Rivkin, said that her son was paralyzed from the neck down and not expected to be able to eat or walk again, according to Chicago’s WGN 9 News. He would also spend the rest of his life dependent on a ventilator, she told the station.
Lewis was mentally aware and able to blink “yes” and “no” to doctors and family. He was also able to communicate using a letter board.
“If I have to live like this, pull the plug,” he conveyed through the letter board. “Please, seriously.”
Lewis was taken off life support and died on Sunday morning, three days after the shooting, according to his family.
People may criticize Max Lewis for choosing not to live that way. I cannot. I find his decision brave. I find his mother brave for not fighting the decision. Max Lewis should be preparing for the fall term at University. He is being buried instead.
I don’t want to fail to mention the Chicago Law Enforcement Officer and to Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents who were shot this past weekend.
Joe Biden and Lori Lightfoot couldn’t be bothered to say their names. They will continue to blame gun violence when this is really about the gangs that are raising the children in the streets. Raising the children to kill other children.
