Chicago Police Chief Says City Wide Violence Is the Fault of the Pilgrims

It isn’t the fault of Chicago’s gun laws.

It isn’t the result of decades of liberal social engineering that has destroyed the black family.


The reason there is so much violence in Chicago’s black community is the pilgrims:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s newly minted police chief has become a quick study to the “Chicago Way,” which, apparently, requires McCarthy to engage in politically correct mumbo jumbo whenever possible.

The Chicago radio forum was no exception.

When asked about the “gap” between law enforcement and the black community, McCarthy reached back 400 years for an answer.

“It’s a big issue. It’s a long time coming. We’ve done a lot of things wrong in policing in this country. I’m willing to admit that,” said McCarthy. “But this goes back 200-300 years to the time when Pilgrims came here and things developed from that, the African American experience in this country.”

But the Pilgrims weren’t the only people being blamed for the violence. The superintendent also laid blame at the feet of America’s finest and inferred – without actually stating it – that white police officers are the problem.

You want to know why there’s violence in Chicago?

Lack of strong black families:

In 1984, Obama’s first year in Chicago, gang members gunned down a teenage basketball star, Benjy Wilson.

The citywide outcry that followed was heartfelt but beside the point. None of the prominent voices calling for an end to youth violence—from Mayor Washington to Jesse Jackson to school administrators—noted that all of Wilson’s killers came from fatherless families (or that he had fathered an illegitimate child himself). Nor did the would-be reformers mention the all-important fact that a staggering 75 percent of Chicago’s black children were being born out of wedlock. The sky-high illegitimacy rate meant that black boys were growing up in a world in which it was normal to impregnate a girl and then take off. When a boy is raised without any social expectation that he will support his children and marry his children’s mother, he fails to learn the most fundamental lesson of personal responsibility. The high black crime rate was one result of a culture that fails to civilize men through marriage.

Liberalism has destroyed the black family.  Liberalism has done more damage to the black community than slavery.

Look at the facts.  Look at the black family before 1965 and look at it today and ask yourself if the pilgrims did that?  Ask yourself if the police did that?

Or did liberalism do that?

Pilgrims are not to blame for the violence in the black community.  Moral busybodies and there “well meaning” social experiments are.

  • George Dunn

    Sounds like a LOT of racism going on here! And he’s the TOP COP in Chicago? Says a lot!!!

  • Wynonna Juggs

    I blame it on welfare and foodstamps

  • Israel Isassi

    whether they want to believe it or not, this is a fact.. everyone needs family.. if you can’t find it at home, you will find it somewhere else, and many times they find family in gangs… ask any gang member and they will confirm this fact.

    • Jason

      Ya, but the bottom line is that it has nothing to do with the pilgrims. Period.

  • Marti Rowdy Heath

    Are the Pilgrims a new gang I haven’t heard about, because if not, this police chief is certifiably the dumbest thing outside of DC.

  • Ryan Treulieb

    yes. blame the people living 400 years ago. makes sense

  • John R. Berti

    I’m surprised he didn’t blame it on Bush like our lame president does all the time because he can’t solve America’s problems.

  • Carol Bartholomew

    just more of the blame game

  • Greg Renner

    Hahaha!!! It’s not bad enough that our corrupt Illinois has enough morons in it, we also happily import other states’ morons!!

  • Theresa A Henderson

    Naaa Marty they are the “pilgrims” that John Wayne was always talking to.

  • Reep MachinecoInc

    They don’t call it a “Liberal Arts Degree” for f****** NOTHING !!!!!!! don’t ya know. As a WASP male American by birth, I found out just a few years back, that every single thing wrong in the world today is MY FAULT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am still trying to figure that s*** out.

    • gary

      Sorry Reep but you are not taking all the blame you selfish Bas$$##@rd !!! I’m older than you so it’s MY fault,,and of course the evil Pilgrims that,as Teresa pointed out, was who John Wayne was always talking about and the Duke,unlike this stupi fk making the statement,, never lied,,,,

  • Colleen Haig

    Wow…that’s an amazing blame game. Just like our famous Chicago Pres…must be what they teach in Chicago. Sad :(

  • Sparky Donald

    I take it then that the cops in Chicago will not be getting holidays off on Thanksgiving and if they work,they wont get holiday pay….Geeesh..with a genius like this as the police chief…no wonder there is so much crime

  • Charlene Evans

    say what??

  • Tim Martin

    The pilgrims started it with the blacks?. . Wait a minute, I know I not that confused with history. There were not blacks here when the pilgrims arrived. The blame game does not fix ANYTHING, it is taking responsibility for your own actions, and making sure that others take responsibility for theirs. Until people learn personal responsibility, then you are fighting a losing battle.

  • Charlene Evans

    @Reep, they can blame me all they want but I just keep on ignoring them.Stupidity annoys me LOL

  • Steve Eckhouse

    What a fucking moron!!!!!!!!

  • Tom Conde


  • Kelly Connors Auel

    Across all racial lines, dysfunctional families & the lack of religious & moral values are to blame. When kids are told in school “you are a blob of tissue & a cosmic accident (evolution)” what do they have to lose? The whole liberal agenda of taking care of people from cradle to grave is killing our nation!

  • Bryan Jensen

    No, we know who’s fault it is but to say it would be racist.

  • Ron Price

    Its the nutty ass holes like him is why the thugs are running loose killing and robbing at will because of leftest run Political correctness nonsense. People who will stand up to protect their own lives and those of their families are not permitted in the NEW WORLD ORDER FROM LEFTEST HELL. Chicago will fall like all of the rest of the cities lunatic leadership of the radical leftest.

  • Mark N. Dfw

    I think the city wide violence when the rest of the nation is trending down is the result of illegal gun control laws that create a safer work environment for the thugs and punks in the city.

  • Edward B Topor

    Who cares this city is the next Detroit let them kill themselves

  • Raymond J Tentis Jr

    A$$hats all of them.

  • Patti Cates

    Who started the slave trade to America? Not the Pilgrims. Actually it was started by Africans and Arabs. Tribes stole people from other tribes and used them as slaves, then decided it would be profitable. Get over it! All cultures have been slaves to one thing or another, What about their self imposed slavery to drugs?

    • gary

      Nice to see someone did their homework Patti,,of course if they catch you in Shi%^cago telling the truth you are looking at serious jail time,,,,

  • Kathi La Voie Wyatt

    Always blaming somebody else!

  • Louis Caraballo

    I think he meant all the Dem pilgrims on pilgrimage to the BHO shrine

  • Marius Ardelean

    His argument and logic is too flawed to even consider picking apart. It would be a complete waste of time. Enough that this imbecile follows the administration’s lead in avoiding responsibility when he can simply blame someone else…

    Birth control for women and men should be MANDATORY in order to receive welfare, food stamps, WIC, public housing. It is not a right, and if you don’t want to accept birth control, you simply go and get a job and do without the money. Within a generation our cities will be liveable, crime will plummet, poverty will decline and test scores will soar.
