Did you actually watch the video? Since you did not then let me fill you in. She says, word for word, exactly what those conspiracy bull-shit people have been warning us about for 20+ years. Even the method matches. But nooo, its a tin foil hat conspiracy even when its admitted.

Re: Chicago Mayor calls for New World Order

I watched Star Wars episode IX yesterday. Seeing someone call for a New World Order the day after gives me a strange feeling.

Re: Chicago Mayor calls for New World Order

You should really do some research before spreading your conspiracy bullshit on the Internet. You can start with this:

"Fact check: Altered video shared online falsely suggests Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot supports ‘New World Order’ conspiracy"

https://www.chicagotribune.com/polit...xze-story.html


"AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The video was edited to take her words out of context. Lightfoot was not planning a global coup, she was talking about ending a long-standing and unusual custom in Chicago called “aldermanic prerogative,” which gave aldermen absolute power on zoning and development decisions in their home wards.

THE FACTS: Social media users are taking a comment Lightfoot made in a 2019 video out of context to suggest she is part of a global scheme to overthrow U.S. democracy and institute a “New World Order.”

The video of Lightfoot talking was taken during an April 2019 interview with the Chicago Tribune, days after she won her mayoral bid with a historic campaign that vowed reforms that would root out corruption in the city.

During the interview, Lightfoot said she would put a stop to aldermanic prerogative, sometimes called privilege, which allowed a single alderman (out of 50) to veto or hold up a project in their home ward. Some criticized the practice as unchecked power that was easy for aldermen to abuse. The Tribune’s original video is below.

Lightfoot goes on to explain that aldermanic prerogative isn’t a law or actual rule but part of the city’s “dominant culture.” To help get rid of the practice, Lightfoot says she plans to sign an executive order that says the city will no longer honor the practice. She tells the Tribune that after that order is signed, she will then hire new officials across key departments in the city, like zoning and housing, who are on board with abolishing the custom.

“You pick the people to run those agencies and the deputies that are pledging allegiance to the new world order and good governance,” Lightfoot said.

Social media users are sharing an edited, one-minute video clip of that comment to suggest she is talking about trying to overthrow the government with a “New World Order.” Other social media posts share a screenshot of her quote to make the misleading claim."

Yes the video was edited, making it shorter. Her words are still her words. The explanation, given by the article and by pancakes, only proves the NWO agenda even further because they are using the bulletin points of UN Agenda 21 while trying to disprove the agenda at the same time.

Yes, Agenda 21 is a real thing, you can look it up on the U.N website.

But still, there is no explanation that takes away the part where she said "pledging allegiance to the new world order and good governance". That is a word for word NWO talking point that has been repeated by numerous politicians, business leaders, and the elite. NWO and Good Governance are like peanut butter and jelly. She said the key words. Thats all we need to know.

Do you even understand what exactly she was referring to in that (edited) video that you linked to? Here is a link to the full interview (translated to text), which the video in your link was taken from:

https://www.chicagotribune.com/polit...404-story.html

So you have the choice here to either properly educate yourself and attempt to understand the full context of what she said or to take something and blow it completely out of context just to stroke your own confirmation bias. I assume you'll continue to choose the latter, because well... ignorance is much easier than actually taking some time to educate yourself, isn't it?

I read the whole interview. I stand by everything I said.
Agenda 21 is all about placing non elected officials in specific departments, notably zoning, planning, housing etc. And here she is, talking about replacing elected officials with non elected officials that pledge to the NWO. Looks like a duck, sounds a lot like a duck, but according to you it must be a giraffe. Lol

So did YOU actually educate yourself on this subject? Answer: No you havent.

It's you who thinks that what looks like a giraffe and what sounds like a giraffe must be a duck since that first your disturbed narrative.

And if you keep standing by everything you said than you admit that you deny the facts and prefer to fantasise your own reality. Must be nice if one is able to do so without drugs, saves a lot of money.

Re: Chicago Mayor calls for New World Order

Dear doG...

I'm guessing that the folks pushing this video are perhaps not well versed in the history of Chicago politics.

Mayor Lightfoot was discussing her executive order on Aldermanic Perogative. Which is a far cry from any 'New World Order' tinfoil-hattery.

One of Lori Lightfoot's hot campaign topics was the elimination of this Aldermanic Perogative - a local political practice, part of the long history of the Chicago Machine.

Under the prerogative - which by the way is more of a practice, not exactly rooted in law (it's complicated...) - an alderman had vast powers without much oversight. He or she could veto most any project going on in his or her ward, had the last word on awarding contracts. In all practicality if you wanted anything done you pretty much had to 'kiss the ring'. Aldermen ran their wards like little fiefdoms, and patronage was the order of the day. A lot of Chicago ward politics took place in the proverbial back rooms, where the alderman collected and dispensed favors.

There is a long history of (in)famous ward bosses. Current poster child: Ed Burke.

Lightfoot's executive order was perhaps the first shot across the bow - Aldermanic Perogative has a long, complex history in Chicago, and unraveling this vestige of the Machine will take more than one step. But she's made a good start.

Lightfoot's campaign to address some of the corruption in city politics is IMO pretty much the opposite of the 'NYO' gibberish that I assume* - based on what I have read - this edited video claims.


*I am not going to give the folks behind the video an extra click.
