One Democrat went way too far in her open discrimination.
Now she is being held accountable for her terrible actions.
A racist Democrat got hit with a lawsuit that could destroy her whole career.
The radical left is now openly racist against white people.
Critical race theory teaches that white people are inherently racist and that people are defined more by their ancestors than their own personal choices.
Leftists are claiming that the only way to make America fair is to discriminate on the basis of race.
These ideas need to be fought tooth, nail and claw because they are a mere pretense to allow the Democrat elite to dehumanize anyone who disagrees with them.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a publicly elected official, said that she wouldn’t give interviews with her based on the reporter’s race, saying she would only grant interviews to “black and brown” reporters.
In response, The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) and Judicial Watch are suing Lightfoot.
Catenacci, a white reporter, requested an interview with Lightfoot to discuss her response to Covid and her vaccine rollout plan. But Lightfoot never even responded to the multiple requests.
On Twitter, Catenacci said he looks “forward to holding [Lightfoot] accountable.”
“On May 20, 2021, Plaintiff Catenacci requested, by email, a one-on-one interview with Mayor Lightfoot,” says the lawsuit, filed in United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division. “Plaintiff Catenacci sent a follow-up email on May 21, 2021. He also sent a third email on May 24, 2021.
“As of the date of this Complaint, Mayor Lightfoot’s office has not responded to Plaintiff Catenacci’s request nor has Mayor Lightfoot agreed to an interview with Plaintiff Catenacci,” the suit continues.
The DCNF reported: “Lightfoot denied Catenacci’s request by ‘failing to respond in a timely manner,’ the lawsuit said, noting that ‘on information and belief,’ Lightfoot is aware that Catenacci is ‘not a journalist of color.’”
The lawsuit is trying to prove that Lightfoot violated Catenacci’s First Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment rights.
DCNF Editor-in-Chief Ethan Barton condemned Lightfoot’s behavior towards his reporter.
“It’s absurd that an elected official believes she can discriminate on the basis of race,” Barton said. “Mayor Lightfoot’s decision is clearly blocking press freedom through racial discrimination.”
The lawsuit is being bought by DCNF in partnership with Judicial Watch which is a nonprofit watchdog group.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Lightfoot’s behavior is “flagrantly illegal and immoral.
“Racial discrimination has no place in America, especially in the halls of government,” Fitton said. “Mayor Lightfoot’s admitted policy of race-based discrimination is flagrantly illegal and immoral. Simply put, we’re asking the court to find Mayor Lightfoot’s racist abuse unlawful.”
