Can you imagine if this headline said Terrorists killed 700 people in the Presidents home city.
People would be going crazy demanding answers.
In the United States we spend TRILLIONS on fighting terrorism and terrorism kills a tiny fraction of the people that gun violence does.
We just finished a presidential election and nobody discussed the carnage in Chicago. Republicans didn't care. Democrats didn't care. The president didn't care. The media didn't care. Nobody cares.......It is considered a local issue. It does not rise to the level of federal attention.
But if terrorists kill 18 people the President would be heading to the microphone to make a speech.
There are 700 dead people today and we still have a whole month to go.
