On Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the aldermen in City Hall, with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials.

One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park.

“This was a historic event,” Paul McKinley of V.O.T.E. (Voices of the Ex-Offender) and former 2nd Congressional District GOP nominee to replace Jesse Jackson, Jr. told Breitbart News. “Not because of Al Sharpton coming to town,” he continued. “This was first time since electing Mayor Harold Washington in the eighties that all of these grassroots groups and community organizers have come together under one roof to talk about the problems plaguing our community.”

While the stated goal for Sharpton was to bring the many different groups together to discuss solutions to the city’s violence epidemic, he may not have gotten the types of responses he was looking for. Calls for more gun control laws and getting guns off the streets were nonexistent and not mentioned by residents throughout the session.

Instead, attendees offered solutions addressing the problems facing their community as a whole rather than just taking on “gun violence” itself. Audience members addressed the need for jobs and solving the foreclosure crisis plaguing Chicago’s south and west sides. Perhaps the loudest message—and one that Reverend Al or the Chicago media have yet to report on—echoed by several different people in attendance as well as panel members was that it is time for the black community to start voting differently.

“The manner in which we have been voting needs to change,” Wendy Pearson, an activist against Chicago school closings, told the room. “I’m here to say to you that we have been trained to vote in a specific manner… we need to start looking at the manner in which our elected officials have been voting… if they have not voted in a manner that is beneficial to you, yours, and your community, then you need to start voting them out.”

McKinley told the room, “Stop blaming just anybody for the violence in the city of Chicago. Blame the right people, not just white people, but the right people. Because it’s not just white folks a part of this, but it is on the fifth floor. The fifth floor took your schools, the fifth floor just took your jobs that he said that he gave to the ex-offender… and every single alderman was a part of this criminal process.”

McKinley called on President Obama to help the grassroots by discontinuing aid and government grants that go through Chicago’s political machine to “name-brand-blue-ribbon-negro-organizations” such as the NAACP and Urban League. McKinley told Breitbart News those groups “are poverty pimps, and are part of the problem and not the solution.”

Esco are you listening? These people got the right idea now . All we can hope is they follow up and don't let this die here.

You cannot legalize morality. It's internal not external. You either have it or you don't.

Couldn't have said it better. Stop being sheeple. Use your brain and vote with knowledge. Wow, what a concept.

Looks like comparing notes on both sides of the aisle leads us to realizing we have a lot more in common than people think.

Martin Luther King Jr. (Republican) and JFK (Democrat) were both assassinated when it seemed they were uniting the country under common core values.

These politicians want us divided so that they can exploit and direct our frustrations at the other side.......and that is what Obama does best----divide and conquer.

The Democrat machine needs to be held accountable for the violence just like that of Detroit was culpable for 40 years of policy leading to Bankruptcy.

They don't realize they are on Rahm Emmanual's plantation.

I hope they do for all of us. If the ones who elected these clowns see the light than there's hope.

There it is.

Words for an American revolt.

Now, lets see if they can make those words go to ACTION against the corrupt politicians that have been in place for decades.

Remains to be seen. At least, the words are out there.

Maybe the people of Chicago aren't insane and will realize that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is just stupid?

After all, the nanny state will always look after it's self first and leave the people's needs last every time.

Yup, and until the voting that is threatened actually happens and the 50 year long corrupt politicians are actually gone, then and only then will we see some action.

However, that political machine has been in power for decades. The corruption goes far, far beyond elected officials. It may take more than just voting to remove it. It may take force by the people.

The people that have suffered the most under the Democrat's yoke of oppression has been the black people.

Obama has been told by the black caucus that people would be marching in DC right now if he were white.

The media has been very successful in attacking blacks that speak against the Democratic machine.

But the black people in Chicago can see the effects of decades of Democrat polices first hand.

It really, really takes someone with a messed up brain to support Obama and his criminal enterprise.

nope..won't ever happen...how many people were there in those "town meetings" compared to the actual count of people affected by the "5th" floor elite?...these are just words...like the promises made on new years eve...all BS that very very rarely goes anywhere...your asking the Black community to use thier heads and NOT vote by what they are told and NOT vote by looking at color of skin?...where do they plan on getting thier info from...word of mouth? by yet another community organizer?..thier problem is true education from the cradle to the grave...most these people have no idea how to even find the right information to make the right decisions, not to mention the rest of this country for that matter, and will just end up making a big old U turn, followed by yet another U turn just to end up in the same direction they are going in the first place...You have to change the education system in these communities, raise the education standards and hold those standards, test them and continue to increase the requirements for actually graduating from grade to grade for generations in order for those same communities to dig themselves out of the **** hole they created for themselves...and that fact alone is the reason they have suffered, they have no one to blame but themselves for ever declining standards of education and morals...and now they have a town meeting to bitch about thier piss poor choices...they are doomed, you have to change the mindset of ALL those in the community in order for things to change...and lets face it, people bitch about Jobs, but don't have nor want to go thru the work involved in getting the education required to earn that job, then bitch about the education, but don't want to study hard enough to earn the requirements to get ever higher education goals needed to earn the job in the first place...its just too easy for them to hang out and bitch over all...but its a whole other story when it comes to actually getting the work done in these communities...a gradual change will not work...it has to be an all or nothing change throughout these communities for things to finally change for them, you have to remove racial bias, change thier value system, work ethic....everything, to bring permanent change.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

It obvious you dont believe in the true one and living God or you wouldn't be taking his name in vain either. I suppose you are now denying recent exact recorded history? You can't prove anything you believe.

You cannot legalize morality. It's internal not external. You either have it or you don't.
