Instead of looking to the White House and Our president, Donald Trump to aid in stopping gun violence, Democrats wants the United Nations to send in their troops!
A Chicago Democrat calls for the U.N. to help fight the gun violence in Chicago!
The Cook County Commissioner, Richard Boykin, a Democrat has reportedly stated his interest in teaming with the U.N. to fight gun violence in the city of Chicago.
“I’m hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts, because I think it’s so critical for us to make sure that these neighborhoods are safe,” he said Thursday, according to local station WBBM.
Boykin made these remarks from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport while en route to New York to meet up with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support.
Richard Boykin went on to say the “quiet genocide taking place in too many of our communities” and noted that many victims of Chicago’s gun violence are blacks who have been “killed at the hands of another African American.”
“So we must protect these population groups, and that’s what the United Nations does,” he added. “They’re a peacekeeping force. They know all about keeping the peace, and so we’re hopeful that they’ll hear our appeal.”
While we greatly appreciate his desire to help the black community in Chicago, we believe that seeking help from the U.N. when Trump has already said he would help and sent, “an additional 20 agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives … to Chicago to help in the effort at cracking down on gun crime and the repeat criminals who routinely commit such crimes”?
Donald Trump has also proposed to send in the National Guard, but Rahm Emmanuel, the city’s mayor has rejected this offer back in January.
“We’re going through a process of reinvigorating community policing, building trust between relationships in the community and law enforcement,” he said, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. “(The National Guard) is antithetical to the spirit of what community policing is.”
Yet, the U.N is a better solution?????
The U.N. is an anti-democratic organization that is “hostile to the private ownership of firearms,” as noted five years ago by Ted R. Bromund, Ph.D., a Margaret Thatcher senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, in a column for The Daily Signal.
Also, the U.N. poses a threat to the U.S. that the National Rifle Association sought to be recognized by it as a Non-Governmental Organization in 1996 just to monitor its activities and stop it from affecting our gun rights.
“NRA has been engaged at the United Nations and elsewhere internationally in response to overreaching small arms initiatives for two decades,” the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action notes. “During this time, we have been actively opposing transnational efforts that would limit Americans’ Second Amendment freedoms.”
Why in the world would Richard Boykin or any other political leader in Chicago be interested in teaming up with an anti-democratic organization when they already have a president willing to help?
I don’t understand it and I don’t like it. I also don’t appreciate the city’s leaders constantly disparaging our president who justs wants to help.
Speaking on CBS’ “The Late Show” this week, Emanuel proudly declared Chicago a “Trump-free zone” and joked that its new motto is “A city he’ll never sleep in.”
Just pray that someone warns him about the U.N. before it’s too late.
