Chance the Rapper Buys Big Chicago Website, Has a Message for Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Published

on

Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, otherwise known as Chance the Rapper, announced this week that he bought a big Chicago website and then delivered a message to Mayor Rahm Emanuel that he’s not at all going to like: He asked him to resign.

The website purchased by Bennett covers politics, news, and culture for the city. The acquisition of the site was announced in a unique way, via a song release.

Here are the details.

Chicagoist.com has not been active since November 2, “when owner Joe Ricketts, the billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade and patriarch of the family that owns the Chicago Cubs, shut down the site along with Gothamist, DNAinfo and others,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

I’m extremely excited to be continuing the work of the Chicagoist, an integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment,” Bennett said. “I look forward to relaunching it and bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet focused on amplifying diverse voices and content.”

Bennett has been a big player in Chicago. The 25-year-old who grew up on the South Side supports arts education in Chicago public schools and has vocally opposed City Hall’s plans for a West Side police training academy.

In his new song, Bennett “took a swipe at Emanuel over a proposed program, costing $95 million, to train police officers after the U.S. Justice Department determined that Chicago cops used excessive force against black residents, according to Reason Magazine,” Fox New reported.

“And Rahm you done I’m expectin’ resignation/An open investigation on all of these paid vacations for murderers,” Bennett sings.

“Emanuel indicated that [he] may not be the fan of the rapper, walking out of Chance’s speech to the city council last year in November, in which the rapper suggested instead using the money to fund public schools and mental health programs,” Fox reported.

This isn’t the first time Chance has managed to stir the pot politically speaking, having tweeted out back in April that “black people don’t have to be democrats.”

As you can imagine, that didn’t sit too well with the majority of folks in our liberal brainwashed culture, but that doesn’t make the statement any less true.

Now, this tweet doesn’t mean he’s a conservative. It just means he’s open to the fact people need to think for themselves, to do diligent research and discover the values they hold dear to and express those without worrying about their race and political affiliation.

It’ll be interesting to see how Chance matures in the coming years and whether or not he will lean more to the right as time marches on.

Assange’s Latest Charge has First Amendment Advocates Alarmed

With free speech and a free press, America will cease to exist.

As the US government grows ever larger and more powerful, it will be of the utmost importance for Americans the nation over to be ultra diligent in bucking any overreaches of power. We The People have built this nation for the purpose of advancing freedom both throughout our continent and abroad, through leadership by example. Our legislators were purposefully given the title of “public servant”, as the job was never meant to be a lucrative one. Of course, that has all changed over the course of the last 200+ years, and we are now staring down a ruling class in Congress made up of wealthy and out-of-touch career politicians. It is now more than ever that we need someone like Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, to keep an eye on all of the government’s dirty tricks. Unfortunately, Assange is currently incarcerated and awaiting trial, extradition, or both, and has added a troubling charge of “espionage” to his rap sheet this week. It is this ridiculous assertion by authorities that has journalists the world over very worried. The editors of the nation’s most influential newspapers on Friday warned against President Donald Trump administration’s latest threat to the First Amendment, expressing distress over the Justice Department’s unprecedented use of the century-old Espionage Act to indict WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for publishing classified material. American media outlets regularly publish classified material, even on occasion over the objections of the White House, as a legitimate journalistic exercise in serving the public’s right to know. Previous administrations have conducted leak investigations, and sometimes have charged the alleged leakers, but they have uniformly opted not to prosecute the journalists. There were some big names in the mix as well. In statements to The Daily Beast, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet, Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron, Wall Street…

Mainstream Massacre Continues as CNN Cuts Payroll…AGAIN!

The move comes just days after a vehement denial that such a thing could occur.

The American people don’t get nearly the credit they deserve when it comes to the mainstream media. We’re played for dummies more often than not, with the talking heads on the television constantly goading us into some mild form of hatred for one another.  The medium thrives on conflict, with sensationalism often being the key to ratings success and economic fortune, so dividing the nation down the false dichotomy of right versus left works. But they’ve gone too far, and We The People are waking up to the truth. Amid all of this manufactured outrage, Americans are tuning out, and sending a message to the infotainment industry that enough is enough. Sanjay Gupta is safe, but much of the rest of CNN’s Atlanta-based staff that covers health care found out Tuesday they are getting pink slips — only a few weeks after the network called mass layoffs a “crazy rumor.” Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that “basically the whole division” will lose their jobs. CNN was unwilling to comment on the matter. TVNewser, a media watchdog site started by CNN’s Brian Stelter, managed to get confirmation from the network — just in time for a Friday news dump. “As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser’s A.J. Katz. Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday. Katz noted that correspondent Elizabeth Cohen is also safe. The move comes after social media corporations began a mass censorship campaign targeting conservative news and opinion figures. The CNN debacle could very well be backlash by Americans who choose to remain vigilant in the face of such political discrimination.
