This week's outrage comes to us from the Windy City, where retiring Mayor Richard Daley (D) has allegedly requested an armed bodyguard detail to protect him after he leaves office on May 16.
According to a recent Chicago Sun-Times online story, the extremely anti-gun Daley has requested at least three around-the-clock bodyguards because he is concerned about "serious safety threats." As a result, the Chicago Police Department contacted the Secret Service to determine whether such security was necessary, the story reports.
We've often reported Mayor Daley's anti-gun, anti-self-defense record. His long history of relentlessly attacking and depriving Chicagoans of their Second Amendment and self-defense rights is well documented and speaks for itself. Daley hates guns and he doesn't want "ordinary" citizens to have them. He thinks his "gun-free" city is plenty safe for the average citizen. But apparently not for him, as he feels he has a right to protection that all other residents of Chicago don't deserve. That's not only the height of arrogance and hypocrisy, that's outrageous.
That in a nutshell is a liberal democrat.
Little Dicky's own life is far more important than anyone else's, and his head so far up his own ass he doesn't even see how tragically wrong this is. As a public servant the PEOPLE should come first, but once a Dick always a Dick.
