Democrats are so unpopular that even politicians in deep blue cities are getting blowback from their constituents!
The latest example is Lori Lightfoot.
The mayor of Chicago has become increasingly unpopular as crime has skyrocketed.
This has happened under her watch because of her policies.
And now the people of Chicago are calling her out.
A police dispatcher published a video on social media.
In the video, he called Lightfoot a disgrace!

Over the last two years, Democrats have publicly supported criminals.
Especially those pouring in over the southern border and criminals at the BLM riots.
Now, their cities are war zones.
And people are finally taking notice.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail:
A police dispatcher has labelled Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot ‘a disgrace’ for allowing the city to become a ‘death zone’ after murders hit a 25-year high.
Keith Thornton Jr. posted a video to Facebook on Christmas Eve slamming Lightfoot as well as the Superintendent of Police David Brown for failing to support the force.
He said he had been compelled to speak up because ‘several of my officers have texted me that they were scared … They have no backing and they’re scared of being out there by themselves, working in the 16th District.’
Thornton said officers in the district, which is in the northwest of the city, were so ‘shorthanded’ that if you call 911 from the area ‘officers are not coming to you.’
He said this wasn’t petty crimes – this was ‘females being beaten’ as well as stabbings and shootings.
‘A shooting came up a few days ago and we couldn’t even get a unit over there. A unit could not even get to that scene until 10 plus minutes later because there was no one,’ Thornton told viewers.
His video was released as Chicago faced a bloody Christmas weekend that saw three people shot dead and 22 seriously wounded.
Murders are at a 25-year high, with 793 recorded so far in a city with 2.7 million people. By comparison, New York City, which has a population of more than eight million, has had 479 murders to date.
On Christmas Day, 24-year-old Giovanni Lozano was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head in Logan Square on the Northwest Side at 10:40pm.
On December 26, Clifford Jeffrey, 37, was shot and killed at 3:20pm in East Garfield Park. And Monday, a 30-year-old man was fatally shot as he walked on the sidewalk in Little Village on the Southwest Side. His name has not yet been released.
Lightfoot has not commented on the Windy City’s carnage, instead posting a video wishing residents a happy Kwanzaa – the African American and Pan-African holiday created in 1966, and celebrated from December 26 until January 2.
Thornton claimed that the mayor was selfish and simply didn’t care about crime-ridden neighborhoods or the police who are supposed to protect them.
Under President Trump, we had law and order.
But under Joe Biden, crime has been souring through the ceiling.
We are seeing a historic crimewave unfold before our very eyes!
The numbers speak for themselves!
Lying Lefty Liberal Lightfoot is the typical democrat

Violence in Chicago doesn’t even take a break for Christmas. 22 people shot, 2 killed during the Christmas weekend. I have a New Years resolution for Mayor Lightfoot. SIMPLE. Support the police, hire more police, fight the gangs, make arrests, and lock the violent criminals up!

Unfortunately, the trend doesn’t appear like it will change direction any time soon.
Instead, it looks as thought crime may only get worse in Democrat-controlled cities.
The New York Post has more details on this story:
A Chicago police 911 dispatcher is slamming Second City Mayor Lori Lightfoot over the city’s out-of-control crime wave, calling her “a disgrace” for mishandling the crisis.
Dispatcher Keith Thornton, who went off on a viral online rant last week, said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that Lightfoot has turned Chicago into “a death zone” by failing to back cops, adding, “the blood is on her hands.”
“It’s out of control, and the citizens of Chicago deserve to know that what’s being done behind closed doors or what’s being told to them, it’s all false,” Thornton said Tuesday.
“Things have just gone downwind from previous administrations,” he added. “But this is the absolute worst that it’s been where it is affecting every part of the community within Chicago, every part of the town.”
The city has seen massive spikes in violent crime, with critics blaming Lightfoot for dropping the ball by letting police ranks dwindle and failing to back first responders.
Last year Lightfoot even pushed a plan to cut police budget funding by $80 million in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests.
Now she’s begging federal officials to send reinforcements to help overwhelmed cops.
Meanwhile, the number of shooting victims in the city for the year reached 4,270 on Sunday, up nearly 9 percent over the 3,930 victims over the same time last year.
Over Christmas weekend, two people were killed and 23 were wounded — including an 11-year-old boy — amid the continuing violence.
Will the public wake up to this madness?
If the police force is fed up, it’s only a matter of time before constituents realize that their Democrat “leaders” have betrayed them!
Hopefully it happens in time for the 2022 midterm elections…
Only time will tell!
