The AOC delusion is spreading. A leader from Black Lives Matter Chicago defended the looting as reparations, saying that black people were stealing in order to put food on their tables and clothes on their backs.
Not only did Ariel Atkins defend the looting with this despicable reparations lie, but told people to keep looting because these stores have insurance and they’ll get their money back:
“I don’t care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike. Because that makes sure that that person eats. That makes sure that that person has clothes. That’s reparations. That is reparations. Anything they want to take, take it, because these businesses have insurance. They’re gonna get their money back. My people aren’t getting anything.”
Fox News went on to report that the mayor dismissed this idiotic characterization, saying it was really a “coordinated, blazened disregard for the rule of law.”
They also report that Black Lives Matter Chicago warned the mayor that “protests would continue until the police department is abolished and black communities are fully invested in.”
Get ready for businesses to vacate Chicago for good, because that’s exactly what this looting will accomplish. Some of these same businesses were just looted earlier this year after the death of George Floyd, and now that it’s happened again you can bet some of them will leave.
