Just a few days ago, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot stood in front of a crowd at a music concert and said ‘F’ Justice Clarence Thomas.
Now she is complaining about toxicity in our public discourse.
Which is it Lori and when did you conveniently change your mind?
FOX News reports:
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot denounces ‘toxicity in public discourse’ days after shouting ‘F— Clarence Thomas!’
Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is attempting to strike a more civil tone just days after cursing out Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Speaking at an event on Tuesday, Lightfoot decried attacks on police officers in her city, suggesting it’s a sign of people “losing respect for the institutions of our democracy.”
“That says to me that the people who are acting so brazenly have no not only no respect for themselves, but they don’t have respect for the institution like the police department, who men and women every single day on every watch, are literally risking life and limb for our safety,” Lightfoot said.
“But toxicity in our public discourse is a thing that I think we should all be concerned about, right?” Lightfoot added.
After alluding to the horrific massacre in the north Chicago suburb of Highland Park that resulted in seven deaths and over 30 injured at a Fourth of July parade, Lightfoot stressed the importance of “community” and urged residents to “respect” each other and “focus on what brings us together and not what tears us apart.”

What’s that old saying?
If it weren’t for double standards, liberals wouldn’t have any at all.
