Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson blamed “right-wing extremism” for contributing to the issues in his city during a press conference, stating that it has targeted democratically run cities and created division and chaos.

He also criticized the Republican party, referencing historical events and claiming that right-wing extremists are still upset about a black man being free in the country.

“What we’ve seen is a very raggedy form of right-wing extremism,” he said. (Trending: Chilling Surveillance Program Under Biden Exposed)

“Everyone knows that the right-wing extremism in this country has targeted democratically run cities, and quite frankly, they have been quite intentional about going after democratically ran cities that are led by people of color.”

“It is the same party that wouldn’t accept that President Obama was actually an American.”

“It’s the same Republican right-wing extremism that stormed the capital, it’s the same right-wing extremism that refuses to accept the results of the civil war.”

“It’s raggedy. It’s disrespectful. It’s mean-spirited,” he went on.

“It is abysmal and it is an affront to everything that is good about this country for the extremism in this country to use people as political tools to settle political scores for something that happened over 400 years ago.”

“They’re still mad that a black man is free in this country,” he said.

Additionally, Johnson blamed his predecessor, Mayor Lori Lightfoot, for the city’s issues.

In a previous statement, he referred to right-wing extremists as being captured by an “unclean spirit.”
