Chicago Contrarian is nothing more than a platform for extremist views that have been growing in Chicago and around the country for decades. In this episode we take a look at a couple recent posts that provide insight in to the mind set of the insurrectionists on January 6th. The posts from Chicago Contrarian also provide insight in to minds of far too many Chicago police officers.
The first post we look at from Chicago Contrarian is a post authored by Second City Cop an alt right blog that folded mysteriously shortly after the insurrection and then appeared posting to the Chicago Contrarian site. It is our belief that the timing of the the shutting down of their blog was no accident. The comment section of the blog was home to some of the most hate filled content on the internet related to Chicago. The interesting part of their posts on Chicago Contrarian is that there are no comments allowed. Just more evidence that Second City Cop is trying to distance itself from the comments they attracted and encouraged.
The second post on the Chicago Contrarian site is authored by Benjamin Blair. His post details a spoof of a memo that he says would come from Mayor Lightfoot's desk. It is filled with hatred and privilege that Blair seems immune form recognizing. As is typical for this webstie this post it is based on what we call IKnowItAllism - a somewhat rare affliction that affects white straight conservative men in Chicago that makes the impervious to facts or reason.
Also on the show today we discuss the city trying to fire the Sergeant that oversaw the raid on Anjanette Young raid.
