Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson Blames ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ for City’s Problems

Paul Bois, Breitbart, November 28, 2023

Democrat Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson blamed “right-wing extremism” for some of the ills facing his crime-ridden city.

Johnson issued his statement about the “far right” during a press conference on Tuesday.

“What we’ve seen is a very raggedy form of right-wing extremism”‘ the mayor said. “Everyone knows that the right-wing extremism in this country has targeted democratically run cities, and quite frankly, they have been quite intentional about going after democratically ran cities that are led by people of color.”


“It is the same party that wouldn’t accept that President Obama was actually an American. It’s the same Republican right-wing extremism that stormed the capital, it’s the same right-wing extremism that refuses to accept the results of the civil war. It’s raggedy. It’s disrespectful. It’s mean-spirited,” he said.
