If Chicagoans Would Vote for Commie Karen Lewis, They Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Vote at All

A new poll of likely Chicago voters seems to find that Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in bad shape for his re-election coming up next year. The poll shows that two other candidates are far and away more popular than the incumbent mayor. One of those two is Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis, a woman who is nearly an out and proud communist. But, if Chicagoans would vote for Lewis, they don’t deserve the vote at all.

This new Chicago Sun-Times poll shows Emanuel losing–and badly–to two other possible mayoral candidates in next year’s election. The biggest disparity is that between the mayor and Current Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. She really slams Emanuel beating him 55 percent to 31 percent in the poll.

Preckwinkle has made no moves at all to run against Emanuel and insists she won’t. Still, rumors abound that she will throw her hat in the ring, anyway.

To be honest, it really is no surprise that Emanuel is finding low favorables in polling this far out from the election. Mayor Emanuel has failed in many respects as Chicago’s mayor. He has done nothing at all to address the mounting pension crisis, spending is still skyrocketing, he’s solved none of the mess that previous mayor Richie Daley left him, and worse of all violence in the city has soared to never before seen rates of blood shed.

It might not be surprising if a ham sandwich was leading him.

Now, the second unannounced candidate that beats the mayor is Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis. The poll shows that Lewis beats Emanuel 45 percent to 36 percent.

When the paper called Lewis to let her know of the results she reportedly replied, “Well, first of all, I’m sitting here stunned.”

The fact is, we should all be stunned that anyone at all would vote for this hate-filled, near communist who is at the very least an outright race baiter.

For instance, in 2012 Lewis mindlessly threw the race card and claimed that teachers are now looked down upon because they serve “lower class students” and “students of color.” It isn’t because they fail to teach, that they demand higher and higher pensions and healthcare benefits even as no one in the private sector get anything close to what they get. No it is because everyone is racist against them.

Even as the city has been drowning in debt, in 2012 Lewis led a teachers strike because her demands of a 30 percent raise in salary and benefits weren’t being met. 30 percent! Who in the private sector ever gets a 30 percent raise?

By 2013 Lewis was going around telling people that Chicago “belongs” to black people and that whites and Hispanics should have no say in what goes on there.

At another speaking engagement in 2014, Lewis said that math should not be taught as a straight subject. Instead math should be coupled with left-wing “social justice” propaganda to get kids’ minds right.

And Lewis’ socialist/communist styled ideas are fully embraced by her vassals in the union, too. In 2013 Chicago teacher Tim Meegan gave a speech rife with communist buzz words and insisted that a violent revolution ala the revolution that ushered communism into Russia in the last century was coming unless people adopted his left-wing ideas.

In 2012 the CTU was also a sponsor of a socialist program called the “Social Justice Curriculum Fair.”

Despite all this wholly un-American stuff, Chicagoans would vote for Karen Lewis? Seriously? If this is what Chicago would vote for, it seems clear they don’t deserve to vote.

    “Mayor Emanuel has failed in many respects as Chicago’s mayor”
    Can you name one thing that was good for Chicago that he hasn’t failed at ?

  • Brucehenry

    That’s funny that’s just how I feel about anyone who would vote for one of these Tea Party nuts.

    Well,not really. It’s unAmerican to claim that if someone doesn’t vote the way YOU think they should they shouldn’t be allowed to vote at all. Matter of fact there’s nothing MORE unAmerican than that, is there?

    • warnertoddhuston

      Sure there is. voting democrat. That is clearly as un-American an action as can be.

      I gladly refer you to those folks who think climate change deniers should be locked up (hence not only giving their right to vote but their freedom as well).
      I also point out the folks that think the folks who support the NRA shouldn’t have the right to vote.
      The same who don’t support abortion, free birth control and a whole host of other liberal issues. After all if someone doesn’t think anyone even has the right to even talk about it (ala Chico and his chicenhawk comments) then surely they shouldn’t have the right to vote about the issue.

    • Jwb10001

      They should absolutely be allowed to vote, however if they elect someone like this they should have to stay there and live with the results.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    I disagree Warner. The only condition I would put on it is that after it elects that stupid cow, Chicago gets no bailouts as it circles the toilet.

  • jim_m

    Lewis would be twice the mayor that Emanuel is. (At least. Perhaps 3 or 4 times)

  • chicagotrance

    Dummies in New York elected De Blasio. So why shouldn’t dummies in Chicago elect this Lefty moron? And, really, look at all the dummies that voted for Obama – TWICE !

    • The Cracker Emcee

      In Chicago? Hell, some there voted for him 3 or 4 times – In each election.

      • Parker Smith

        And that’s just the dead ones…

  • Hank_M

    I hope Rahm Emanual is enjoying this crisis and doesn’t let it go to waste.
    Seeing him brought down a peg or two is a thing to behold.
    As for Chicago voters, I hope they enjoy their future as the Detriot of Illinios.

    • jim_m

      Illinois is becoming the Detroit of states.

  • GarandFan

    But…but…but it’s a “Democratic Worker’s Paradise!”

  • Texas_Accountant

    Chicago gave us Barack Obama. It deserves to become the next Detroit.
