Earlier this year, the Democratic Party in Chicago funded a massive sculpture just across the from the Trump Tower. Designed to be a giant middle finger to the polarizing new president, massive gold letters spell out the heart of the liberal agenda, “REAL FAKE.”
The sculpture has fueled the anti-Trump rage, with the president’s critics showing up to take photos, and even organize marches. But, in the true spirit of reclaiming speech, a black activist group called RebelPundit.com has created a short viral video explaining around the statement. Called Chicago Carnage, the three minute video short explains that Chicago is drowning in problems, and Trump is not the least of them.
“It is ironic that this sign would show up right here, and not in front of City Hall,” community organizer Paul McKinley narrates in the film. “Its placement is a ‘great deception…’ to distract people from ‘real issues.’”
He muses on why the government would spend to create malice toward the presidential administration, when the citizens can barely keep their head above water. Rampant poverty, drugs, and a rising murder rate plague Chicago, as one of the nation’s top cities.
“They are not trying to resolve the problems in this city, they need things to happen exactly the way they are happening….The fake news is that this city is a city for everyone….This is a city for the elite,” Carter said.
He explained that the media wants to blame the president, or Washington for the city’s issues. But, he knows that’s it’s just a red herring.
“They want you to be focused on Donald Trump being the problem,” Carter said, to which McKinley asks, “why are we all messed up, Trump just got in there?”
The real problem, he said, is “cronyism.”
“There is nothing fake about this guy [President Trump],” said Carter, “he tells you what he’s about. The fake is Barack Obama, the fake is Bill Clinton….They want you to believe that there is some white racist Republicans or some white racist conservative doing this. No, this is the Democrat machine; these are white and black racist Democrats that are doing this to us.”
The video was produced by filmmakers Jeremy Segal and Andrew Marcus and uses community organizers Paul McKinley and Mark Carter. This is not the first video the organization has produced, their objective is to feature the real city of Chicago, plagued with violence and overwhelming poverty, set against the liberal agenda of the sign.
“Every day of the week there is a body count, 30 people shot up, 40 people shot up, that’s not real fake, ” says McKinley.
According to McKinley, it’s the Democrats that are the real problem.
“The Democrat machine is dummying down the people, socially engineering the people into poverty,” McKinley said. “They want you to believe that there is some white racist Republicans or some white racist conservative doing this. No, this is the democrat machine, these are white and black racist Democrats that are doing this to us.”
The video even goes on to assert that the Democrats like the people to be this way so that they can stay in power.
They don’t want the killing to stop,” McKinley narrates in the film. “They need the people to continue to poor. They need these blood sucking programs, that have never done anything to bring down violence, unemployment and poverty.”
He goes on to call Chicago, “the most racist city and segregated city in the country.”
McKinley ends the video with hope, however. He urges Washington bureaucrats to come out to Chicago and see what the problem is. He tells them to investigate the city council, and root out the corruption. Finally, the filmmakers seem to put hope in the new president, believing that he can help bring change.
“And if Donald Trump wants to come here and get the real answers, come here and talk to the real people, and we’ll show you how things are working in this city,” Carter adds.
“If he can do that,” says McKinley, “he can make Chicago great again.”
The video is being circulated around the Internet.
