Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Chicago Has A High Crime Rate Because The People Living There Are Immoral

Raw Story reports:

Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held an off-camera press briefing on Friday, saying that the press office doesn’t want to overshadow an announcement of a new executive order by President Donald Trump.

However, in her short 16-minute appearance off-camera, Sanders managed to blame the people of Chicago for the city’s high crime rate, saying “morality” is the issue, not poverty or ready access to firearms.

“I think that the problem there is pretty clear that it’s a crime problem,” said Huckabee Sanders. “I think that crime is driven more by a morality than anything else so I think that this is a law enforcement issue and our focus is trying to add additional support.”

    • Nowhereman

      Anchorage Alaska has a higher violent crime rate than Chicago but Chicago is the only high crime city that they ever mention. They use it as code for “scary black thugs” to appease their racist base, and of course the Obamas lived there.

      • Andymac3

        Yes, it’s an Obama thing, it’s an extension of the birther, racism, KKK narrative of Trump/Sessions/Bannon.

        Sessions was Bannon’s first choice for Presidential candidate.

        • Gustav2

          It is the whole Republican Party mindset. Urban means dangerous, rural means safe. Comments on conservative sites are now calling densely populated white suburban areas “rural.”

          One called the suburb where I grew up rural so I said “We grow lawns here, not pastureland. We are not “rural”

      • DN

        Yep – it replaced “San Francisco values” to mean scary things that conservatives hate.

      • Russ Klettke

        Exactly. In cities larger than 250,000 people, Chicago ranks 24th in violent crimes per capita. But never try to convince these people and their chicken-fried brains of anything on facts. They have twisted logic and bible verses to rationalize exploitation and greed since before the Revolutionary War.

            I saw her in a play at La Mama off-broadway several years ago!

It was a total surprise and delight for me to see her name in the program, I believe her bio did say it was her NYC theater debut.

    The inherent humor of a Huckabee lecturing anyone on morality aside…

    What the fuck does a focus on law enforcement “issues” (whatever that actually means, assuming “shovel more money at them and look away harder from their abuses of power”) have to do with morality? You think having cops in military gear and vehicles will somehow make people more moral? What babbling nonsense!

    • stevenj

      For type 2 diabetes cinnamon can help lower blood sugar levels. I am mildly diabetic (type 2) and use Vietnamese cinnamon on sweet potatoes when I occasionally cook them. It is not a cure for diabetes though, there is absolutely no proof of that.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        With that family, the “cinnamon challenge” takes on a whole new meaning.

      • Russ Klettke

        That family needs to stay away from the shoe-fly pies as a first step toward licking their diabetes. And something tells me in the backwoods of the Huckabee Ozark compound some weird licking probably happens.

    • Nowhereman

      Cinnamon DOES have some health benefits. You need to do your research and be careful which one you use though. The cinnamon commonly available at the grocery store may contain a blood thinner so is not good to use if you are already on a blood thinner. But no, I certainly wouldn’t try to sell it as a cure.

      • Cuberly

        I realize that, they’ve done studies that show components in cinnamon do have an impact on insulin production, if I recall.

        I was specifically referring to Huckster touting a cure. It’s not a cure, it just has some measurable benefit.

        • Todd20036

          I’ve cured diabetics with cinnamon. Actually it was a marinate with cinnamon in it.

          For when you want a sweeter type of Soylent green.

  • No self-respecting reporter would have shown up to a no-cameras-allowed press conference. Anyone there is a hack and they should be called that to their faces. Instead they should have scheduled interviews with other newsmakers willing to appear on-camera to discuss the health care bill or other important matters and aired that instead. Maybe even live. So long as the “news” outlets continue to tolerate this there will be more and more absurd demands made by this administration. This is already over the line and yet they’re all catering to them. This country is fucked. They did this in the lead-up to the Iraq War and they’re doing it again. Fuck the news media. There’s more news on the comedy shows than on CNN. They would be embarrassed if they had any ethics or professional standards.

    • zhera

      My fantasy is that every time the tRump administration tries to fuck over the media, the media responds with long on-air /editorial discussions on why tRump won’t release his tax forms. Speculation, facts, conspiracy theories, the whole lot.

    Make no mistake. A Trump SCOTUS is going to give the Christian Dominionists just about every privilege they ask for. You’ll have evangelical morality rammed down your throat. And that will go on for a generation.

      The problem of trying to appeal to people ‘new to politics’ is they tend to be totally naive to all the dirty tricks and also have no clue how these offices even work.

    • Misutaa Roboto

      Excellent article in the link. Many on the left have been and continue to be classic useful idiots as well.

      Some are just a kind of insufferable contrarian who, upon learning that the US has not always been perfectly moral decide that they should instinctively align themselves against it even as they enable far more evil regimes (like the Russian Federation’s oligarchy, or their Soviet precursors) to gain more power.

  • From Robert Reich

    While he deflects our attention with endless lies and chaos, Trump is quietly taking America deeper into war:

    1. The U.S. just fired 23 cruise missiles at a Syrian air base in retaliation for alleged Syrian use of chemical weapons against civilians.

    2. U.S. forces are bombing Iranian-supported militia forces moving forward in southern Syria, and shot down a Syrian jet flying over Syrian airspace.

    3. The administration will dispatch 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan, plus 400 to Syria.

    4. Russia has ended coordination with the U.S. to avoid air collisions, and announced that U.S. planes flying west of the Euphrates would be targeted.

    5. Meanwhile, Trump is escalating support for the Saudi air assault on Yemen. Already 17 million Yemenis suffer lack of food, while a cholera epidemic there infects another child every 35 seconds.

    6. And Trump has declared that China has failed to influence North Korea. His next move is anyone’s guess.

    Congress has given over foreign policy to Trump, and Trump has given it over to the generals — a deadly and dangerous gamble.

    What do you think?

    • stevenj

      I read one of Reich’s books last year – Saving Capitalism. And he writes a column for the SF Chronicle on Sundays. Always a good informative sobering read. I’ve also read about half a dozen books in the last year on the Cold War years, Allen Dulles and all of his CIA activities mainly in Latin America but also in the Middle East and Africa, JFK, RFK and MLK assassinations, Vietnam and a well researched book by British author Anthony Summers on Lee Harvey Oswald. In one of those books conflict and war as a means of change and – profit – was discussed. The ultra right wing (at the time, early 50’s, the intelligence agencies, the generals and other bigwigs in the the Defense Dept) were all in agreement that this was a path the US needed to pursue to advance it’s “interests”. Eisenhower warned Americans in 1960 about the rise of this new entity – the military industrial complex, which went largely unheeded. The “election” of trump is, so far, the culmination of this right wing wet dream for the ultra wealthy. Reich’s Saving Capitalism explains how, over the decades, the ultra wealthy have been able to become obscenely ultra wealthy and it’s all tied in to money, war and conflict.

      The State Dept released documents this week about the CIA backed coup in 1953 of the democratically elected leader of Iran. If you wonder why we have so much terrorism today the roots of it are right here:

    “saying “morality” is the issue, not poverty or ready access to firearms.”

    Spoken by someone who has never worried about making the rent in her entire fucking privileged life. Who’s never faced the decision, on the last day of the month, between taking the bus home rather than walking, or buying a box of mac and cheese for dinner.

    And who can’t even dream what life is like when that kind of shit is not just a once in a while low patch, but a lifetime – when it’s how you were raised, and how everyone around you was raised, and how your future looks. And the way the moral choice looks a little different when all your choices are shitty ones, because that’s all that’s available to you.

    It ought to be a crime to grow up so comfortable that a person can say something as stupid as this and not even know that it’s stupid.

    As an Illinois resident, I’m becoming tired of the constant bashing of Chicago coming out of this administration. Chicago doesn’t even come close to being America’s most violent city. All of the following major cities have higher violent crime rates:

    Albuquerque, NM
    Anchorage, Alaska
    Atlanta, GA
    Baltimore, MD
    Buffalo, NY
    Cincinnati, OH
    Cleveland, OH
    Detroit, MI
    Houston, TX
    Kansas City, MO
    Indianapolis, IN
    Las Vegas, NV
    Memphis, TN
    Miami, FL
    Milwaukee, WI
    Minneapolis, MN
    Nashville, TN
    New Orleans, LA
    Newark, NJ
    Oakland, CA
    Orlando, FL
    Philadelphia, PA
    St. Louis, MO
    Stockton, CA
    Toledo, OH
    Washington, D.C.
    Wichita, KS

    This list excludes suburban areas, small to medium cities, and rural areas that have higher violent crime rates than Chicago. #factsmatter

    This is some kind of code. Since Chicago needs “additional support” for a morality problem I will assume she means Washington will be sending in a flock of preachers?

    “I think that the problem there is pretty clear that it’s a crime
    problem,” said Huckabee Sanders. “I think that crime is driven more by a morality than anything else so I think that this is a law enforcement issue and our focus is trying to add additional support.”

    Someone obviously just completed Module 1 of the Sarah Palin Institute Word Salad Correspondence Course. What the fuck was that even supposed to MEAN? More bible-tainted bullshit coming from the White House. If they don’t have anything sensible to say, why don’t they just stay silent for a day?
