Chicago has apparently decided that it hasn’t tried Wokeism enough.
After voting in a new Marxist mayor, the Windy City is about to be ruined.
And it’s all thanks to one set of radical plans that will drive Chicagoans out of the city by the thousands.
After voting their ultra-left-wing mayor, Lori Lightfoot, out of office earlier this year, Chicagoans decided that what they would really like is to elect someone else who is even more solidly left-wing.
What they ended up settling on was Brandon Johnson, a quasi-Marxist political activist with strong ties to both Bernie Sanders and the infamous Chicago Teachers’ Union.
Johnson won the hotly contested general election on a platform of defunding the police and raising taxes in the city to the tune of over $10 billion.
And now that he’s finally taking office, his ultra-left-wing supporters intend to make good on his campaign promises.
Fox News reports, “Allies of newly-elected Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson are pushing a $12 billion financial package that would raise taxes for certain residents in the city and divest from policing and surveillance.
Released Tuesday, the proposal from Action Center on Race & the Economy (ACRE) and People’s Unity Platform outlined “several measures Mayor Brandon Johnson can take to raise or save up to $12 billion a year to fund true community safety.”
From housing and education to climate and violence prevention, the People’s Unity Platform called for Johnson’s office to take action on a number of its suggestions in the proposal titled “First We Get the Money.”
The fact that the Left’s new political action plan for Chicago is literally titled “First We Get the Money” tells the general public all that they need to know about the future of this once great city.
With over a million people having already moved out of Chicago since Democrats took complete control over the city in the mid-20th century, the city is now expected to lose even more residents in the coming years.
Already, major businesses like Caterpillar and Tyson have decided to move out of Chicago.
And more are likely to follow in the wake of what is expected to be the most radical left-wing agenda ever imposed on a major American city.
Johnson’s election means that the Chicago Teachers’ Union will enjoy even more power than they had before, and this was in spite of the fact that the union worked to keep the city’s schools closed down for two years.
Making matters worse, Chicago may soon experience one of the worst crime waves in the entire country.
“Reduce the bloated police budget: 31% of Chicago’s 2023 budget is allocated to the Chicago Police Department,” the proposal stated. “Mayor Johnson can redirect some of this money from the bloated police budget to the proposals in the People’s Unity Platform that will bring about true public safety.”
With a plan to completely destroy the Chicago Police Department now in the works, it could be only a matter of time until the city collapses into full-blown chaos as the same problems which swept Portland and San Francisco over the past three years finally make their way to the largest city in the American Midwest.
