Cook County Commissioner Calls for United Nations Peacekeepers in Chicago

If admitting that you have a problem is the first step toward solving it, maybe the moonbats running Chicago have made progress at last. Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has confessed to a catastrophic failure to govern by calling for United Nations troops to maintain order in the city:

Boykin was traveling to New York to meet with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support, to seek international help with “horrific levels of shootings” and other violent crime in West Side and South Side communities.

“I’m hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts, because I think it’s so critical for us to make sure that these neighborhoods are safe,” Boykin said at O’Hare International Airport on Thursday.

Boykin says that his fellow blacks shooting each other constitutes “genocide,” so U.N. peacekeepers must step in to stop it, like they have done such a marvelous job of accomplishing among similar populations in Africa.

At least this is a better idea than depriving law-abiding citizens in more civilized parts of the country of their constitutional rights, lest their firearms end up in the virtual gun-free zone that is progressive Chicago. However, the U.N. troops may encounter an obstacle on their way to the Windy City — namely, the U.S. military.

Here’s an idea we might try. Why not stop paying people to be useless and to breed out of wedlock? The carnage in Chicago is a cultural phenomenon. The welfare state created the culture. Reform the welfare state and you reform the culture, possibly into one where residents on the South Side see the need to pull their pants up and get jobs rather than devoting themselves to gang activities.
