The progressives and the press are trying to railroad this kid. They say he was “hateful, disrespectful, taunting” toward this drumming Indian that got in his face. If there is one single scrap of video showing ANY bad behavior by that kid, I haven’t seen it!! The a-hole press is in total progressive lying spin mode on this one. They hate the guts of ordinary Americans. They despise us. This is infuriating!
A clear sky and fresh snow cover will be ideal for temperatures to drop rapidly this evening across much of northern Illinois and northwest Indiana, apart from near Lake Michigan and in the heart of the Chicago metro. Temperatures will likely drop below 0° by early-mid evening with wind chills 10° to 20° below.
Coldest air of the season so far – bundle up if outside!
