Suburban Support

  • MAY 15TH, 2016 - MAY 31ST, 2016

    The residents, businesses, houses of worship and schools in Skokie, IL are asked to tie red and blue ribbons around trees and lampposts. This is a village-wide show of support and gratitude for our fire and police departments.

    Starting April 11th, ribbons will be distributed by our sponsors. Please feel free to stop by any of the locations and pick up your ribbon!
Here, houses of "worship" are the ones preaching hatred, schools teaching disrespect, and teachers screaming at rallies to "Fuck the police and everyone with them."

But if you're way up north in nosebleed territory, maybe a little bit of cross-border support might go a long way.

And let's not forget what regularly turns up here on this 'insignificant blog' too.

Maybe in the middle of the night we should go around St. Sabinas and other places like that and tie red and blue ribbons way up high.

When Phlegher asks where they came from we say the Pope sent them as a message of peace.

Skokie has always been a nice town. The older Jewish population are nearly all gone but Skokie still has many Temples still going strong. The good Jews of Skokie always were a kind and loving people to all and loved the police.
Thank you to all the wonderful people of Skokie.

I will find ways to spend my money in Skokie during the month of May. Anyone have some good family friendly restaurants that they would recommend? I'll be trying a few of these.

That nut that was screaming F the police is not a CPS teacher. That's a fact. How she got a spot to speak is shameful, but she's not a teacher.

There is a retired Lt. in Norwood Park who did the same thing to the trees in his neighborhood. All the neighbors were receptive and it looked pretty nice. Up around Talcott/Oriole.

SCC - Thank you for giving this event some "cyber time." I wish we could see this activity where it is really needed. Hang in there.

Skokie, another suburb going to shit because of Section 8 housing. Section 8 is like Sherman's March to the sea, destroying everything in its path and leaving behind burned out buildings.

They don't have the death and dying that is daily taking place in Chicago. Nor do they have #BLM and #BLM's political clout. #BLM is the new democrat party approved voice of the people.

They would do this on the west side, but there are no trees.

In Gresham we have community support. When we marched in the rain with Superintendant Eddie Johnson to a dying cancer patients home we were greeted and treated as heroes by community residents. That little girl inspired the hell out of me. In fact we have been invited to special masses for police officers by Father Flagher. I love my city and the 006th District. I will fearlessly follow our new Superintendants lead. Skokie? Please who wants live and work in such a stale, sterile and dry environment. Thats not being the real police. That's as bad as moving to Idaho being a suburban cop. There has never been an NYPD Blue type program about being a suburban cop. Guys stop complaining and let's get behind the new boss.

Nosebleed territory? Skokie boarders the N side of Chicago and gets its fair share of your boarder crossers.

She was allowed to speak, because the Chicago Teachers Union invited her to speak. This was notnthe first time they hosted her at one of their events and allowed her to spew her hatred.

To the poster who says,"that nut is not a teacher" is wrong. She may not be a Chicago Public School Teacher but she is a teacher. Paige May is a charter school teacher at 800 South Wells street. I guess Karen Lewis no longer objects to charter schools replacing public schools. Good to know and it will be remembered.

I'm LMAO at BH the hard-working enthusiastic young PO in Gresham! Is this an imposter trying to make fun of this BH person? Because if that's a legit post by the real BH, he's gonna have some issues in his career :D

07:44 - Regarding the #blm protesting, Skokie had to deal with the nazi march and survived all the media clowns trying to stir up hatred. This happened back in the 70's. One can only wonder how the media would deal with the #blm crowd acting like 21st Century nazis.
