Rahm is a Bully?

  • Spike Lee, director of the controversial movie ""Chi-Raq," said something so amazing about Mayor Rahm Emanuel that I just had to sit down, on the floor. The chair was too far away and I almost fainted.

    "Spike Lee says the mayor is a bully," Old School announced.

    No!
That's Kass having some fun at Rahm's expense...and Spike Lee's for stating something everyone here already knew.
  • But there it was in Chicago magazine's December issue, with Lee explaining in an interview how Rahm was angry about "Chi-Raq," "the movie about the slaughterhouse that is Chicago.

    Rahm didn't like the title and neither did his minions among the aldermen, whom Lee called the mayor's "bootlickers."
We would have claimed a little higher than Rahm's boots, but we're crude that way:
  • The mayor didn't like it because "Chi-Raq" suggests that Chicago is a violent place, like a war zone, like Iraq. Actually, Chicago is more violent than Iraq is now.

    "OK, so that's where your mayor and I got off on the wrong foot, right away," Lee told Bryan Smith in an excellent interview. "What I didn't like was him trying to paint me as this villain. I'm not the bad guy, but that's how he was trying to portray it. Do I have the guns? Am I the one pulling the trigger? To be honest, he's a bully."
Rahm has national aspirations. Working for Hillary or something else in the Senate? Something bigger than Chicago though. It's a humorous read and Spike comes off okay.

Thanks to Obama abandoning Iraq in 2011 after we had beat the Sunni insurgency and the Shia insurgency in 2007-2008, I think we can say Iraq is now (a lot) more dangerous.

The press just ignores the executions, rapes, murders and crucifixions by Sunni ISIS and the counter-terror atrocities by the Iranian Shia militias. At least the gang-banging thugs in Garfield Park and Austin aren't killing their neighbors and raping their children because they didn't go to the right mosque.

The problem with Rahm is that he is in over his pay grade. The only reason he is where he is at,
is because of his family connections. Rahm should at the most be someone gofer/administration staff. I believe he knows he is in way over his head, because everything he touches turns to shit. I don't see him doing much of anything on a nationional level unless he bends over for his new boss. Frankly, I am surprised that Rahm was reelected. I didn't vote for him the first time and I wasn't about to vote for him the second round. I just hope we don't end up like Detroit after his term is over. Right now, the only thing we can do is pray the FEDS take him away in handcuffs. Perhaps then, we can move forward as a city.

Correction, ghetto Chicago is a war zone. Sometimes they wander outside the ghetto to kill, but mostly they kill in da hood. So stay out of the hood and you will have no problem.

Whoever voted for this dickhead of a mayor should have their head examined. What has he done for the tax paying voting citizens; Nothing. Increased violence, increased taxes, decreased bond ratings, decreased city services. Hence more rats. What has he done for his campaign donors. Uber has caused Checker taxi to go belly up. Now Uber wants to do business in Ohare and Midway. Charter Schools are growing under Rahm also. Rauner gets rewarded. Contracts given by Byrd also reward who? The voters get shafted. Police, Fire and Teachers are told to do more with less. Stay fetal my friends.

Rahm a bully? Probably.

Or maybe he is just a privileged and elitist NorthShore douchebag. He grew up with a particular slant-eyed view of the working class which includes police.

Everyone has their opinion and as it appears Spike does not like our midget dictator.
Here is mine. Spike Lee will remain an asshole for life.
Thank you good people of CPD who put their lives in harm's way everyday so we may live in a somewhat civilized manner. Some of us with military and LEO family backgrounds do appreciate the sacrifices made by you to protect us.
My wife knows how to change the toilet flapper.

+1. You are correct in that Spike is a Grade A clown and toolbox. Spike's also the walking definition of irony: the best movie--or "Spike Lee Joint," as the clown self-describes his films--in his oeuvre is 1999's SUMMER OF SAM--a film that explores how the Son of Sam murder spree of 1976 - 1977 affects the lives and relationships of white Americans of Italian/Sicilian descent in an affected Bronx neighborhood. Sorry, Spike--you ain't "got game."

Boy howdy, talk about "Battle of the Midgets"; are either of these poofs much over 5 foot, 140 pounds?

I mean, not to bang on my vertically challenged friends here, but watching two guys go at it when you just KNOW they're both wearing Spider-man Underoos from the 'tweens section at Target, well, it just ain't Clint Eastwood slugging it out with Lee Van Cleef, right?

Actually Spike you people....then who keeps committing mass shootings in white areas? They say the police instigate fights in the black areas and help the few rotten apples by "failing to intervene". Everyone will see what happens as the gangs target whites more and more.

"As with every bully, get them one on one and they are cowards."

Emanuel used to have a family vacation destination in the vicinity of New Buffalo, Michigan. Unlike the other Chicago Democrats, including the Daleys, Emanuel elected to make unincorporated Union Pier his base camp.

One day another vacationer made the mistake of walking along the shore without realizing that he and his children had strayed across the property line onto a private beach. Foulmouthed Rahm confronted the trespassers and unloaded a string of obscene expletives.

The father directed his children to turn around and walk back. He then succinctly told Emanuel that he was not in Chicago and that if he ever spoke to the man or his family in such scatological language again that he was going to administer a beating to him that would land him in the hospital and result in some unfavorable newspaper headlines.

Emanuel made a hasty retreat.

"a privileged and elitist NorthShore douchebag" -- ask around Wilmette and most people who knew him from high school will relate that Rahm was disliked far and wide and had a deserved reputation as a stoner.

It amuses the heck out of me that when he ran for Congress and the Mayoralty, he constantly referenced a relative who was a Chicago cop. Once the elections were over, he turned his backs on the CPD.

LOLZ @ Rahmplestiltskin as "Cool Mite."

That's Rahm Emanuel's entire schtick to a fucking tee...

A foul-mouthed, undersized, wannabe "Chicago Tough Guy"
who's just chock full of nasty North Shore privilege, classism
and deeply closeted racism too...

He deems himself to be the better of us all.

We'll share this Rahm Emanuel tid-bit that was relayed
from a CPD family member up north.

In the ramp-up to his first mayoral campaign, Rahm was
walking up to a coffee shop, our family member was exiting
the same place.

He sized Rahm up as he approached...
You know... That EMM-AY-ENN shit when two unfamiliar men
pass in proximity...

He performed a "sack-check" by taking two steps toward Rahm.

Rahm spooked, altered his trajectory and averted his eyes as he
quickened his tempo to get into the shop.

That's your "Chicago Tough-Guy" mayor...

The same one who went out of his way to stop
by a Fire-House to shit-talk Firemen:

"You guys are gonna have to learn how to bleed."

The same one who shit-talked Policemen during a
contract negotiation:

"We're gonna stick it in the Cops ear..."

Not that we and others were EVER going to vote for
a smug, ever-grasping, smarmy, insincere, weasel-word
using shit-ass who demonstrated his troubling tendencies
by getting disinvited from not one, but TWO stints as
White House Chief-of-Staff...

Plus Rahm shielded much of his background to keep people
from being able to exercise any due diligence in finding out
what he really thinks about stuff and things.

Heh... Tough guy eh?

Well... The majority of the people of this city are getting
exactly what they voted for.

Twice...

Chicagoans are a deeply troubling lot who
apparently harbor deep disdain for those
who can actually read a situation, exercise
discernment and think for themselves.

Our family member often wonders if perhaps he
could have been a change agent of the best sort.

We've told him not to worry himself, it was all set
to unravel at the seams anyway with Policemen
as the fall guys.

Police like you have no friends.

Make yourselves scarce because
even a modicum of familiarity will
breed contempt.

Respond rapidly.
Drop a VIN.
Get away from
the complainant/victim
as quickly as possible
to minimize the risk of
your actions being seen
as "wrong."

Since Policemen are no longer seen
as "credible," make arrests only on
the signed complaint of someone else.

Let "Hollow-Man's" DOJ Civil Rights Investigations
Gestapo turn that other m/fer's life upside-down
instead of yours.

The War Against The Police is real.
What other occupation is intentionally
subjected to the 99% Right = 100% Wrong standard?
