While I still consider the worst – and most corrupt – city in America, there is some solace to living in Philadelphia. At least I’m not being led by Mayor Groot, er, Lori Lightfoot. You see, Groot has decided to shut down Chicago – again – to “slow the spread” of the Chinese Wuhan Virus. (As if the eight-month shutdown wasn’t enough.)
Oh did I also mention she’s canceling Thanksgiving?
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Thursday asked all residents to cancel Thanksgiving plans and stay at home unless they need to go to work or school or to tend to essential needs like the doctor’s office or grocery store.
Chicago said it was issuing the 30-day stay-at-home advisory, asking people to refrain from traveling, having guests in their home or leaving for non-essential business “in response to the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the city.”
The city has been effectively shut down since March, you stupid twat, for everything and everyone except Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Funny how they get a pass.
“This is serious life and death,” Lightfoot said during a press conference discussing the state-at-home advisory, adding that the city is “doing what is necessary” to slow the spread of the virus. “We are sounding the alarm that we are at this inflection point where we have to do more than we’ve already done.”
Look, if the citizens of Chicago have no problem with Gestapo tactics, that’s on them. They’re the morons who voted for thus C U Next Tuesday. I do wonder how the business owners feel about another month-long shutdown, though. Eh, it’ll be fine.
