In Chicago, a mayor with activist roots prepares for a potentially volatile Democratic convention (nbcnews.com)

CHICAGO — Mayor Brandon Johnson is the first to brandish his past activism and roots as an organizer. That has helped contribute to a now well-worn worry that he won’t rein in protesters during what’s expected to be a highly charged Democratic National Convention. 

But so far, he has made few people happy before the August nominating event.

On one hand, critics argue Johnson won’t do enough to dissuade bad actors from coming to the city in the first place. On the other, protest groups are taking the city to court, complaining that it has denied their permits to march close to two main convention sites: the United Center and McCormick Place.

The DNC Is Preparing for the Worst in Chicago — Without the Help of the City’s Mayor - POLITICO

CHICAGO — President Joe Biden’s top advisers are all too aware the ghosts of 1968 may haunt their convention here, but they’re grappling with a pair of more urgent and thoroughly modern-day challenges as summer nears: How far can they go in reprising their virtual 2020 convention to mitigate the threat of disruption inside the arena, and how will they navigate a rookie mayor who unabashedly sympathizes with protesters?

My guess is, in typical modern identity politics fashion, anybody attending festivities critical of Israel will be branded anti-semitic and those who criticize the Mayor, for not doing enough to contain the anti-semites, will be labeled racists. 

In the end, when all has blown over, Trump will be blamed for everything. 

🤣

Well yes of course, it is a performance by the people in charge.  They also observe reactions of the public to their performance.   Like any good machine operator or factory controller, they tweak the input knobs and dials to get the most efficient output. The input is what they say they are going to do.  The output is popular support.  The beneficiaries are the elites and corporations that benefit from policies, whether that be windmills or fracking. international trade or tariffs.

The elites are willing to give us doggie treats to keep us obeying.  Public opinion does drive policy, but advertising and propaganda drive public opinion. In the end, all you really get to choose is what kind of doggie treats you like.
