Cook County Board President: Ronald Reagan Deserves “A Special Place In Hell” For Drug Policies

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle

Toni Preckwinkle, President of Cook County Board, the second-most populous county in the nation, shocked audience members at a conference in Champaign, Ill. when she stated the late President Ronald Reagan deserves “a special place in hell” for his drug policy and the “war on drugs” that followed his policies.

She later described her statement as inflammatory, but refuses to change her position on the discussion. “If I had it to do over again, I certainly wouldn’t say anything quite so inflammatory. But my position basically remains the same,” she told local news reporters.

This was not Preckwinkle’s first time criticizing the U.S. drug policy. Last year at a rally she said the United States’ war on drugs “has failed” in its aim to dwindle drug use and has, instead, resulted in mass incarceration. She also said the war on drugs comes “at a tremendous social and economic cost to all of us. The cost is too great to continue fighting this war on drugs with so little success.”

Is Preckwinkle saying what most African Americans believe? I believe she is. My father, Mario Lloyd, is a prime example of the result of Reagan’s drug policies. He was sentenced to 15-life sentences in the late 80’s as a first-time offender of a non-violent crime in Chicago, Ill. Since Preckwinkle can’t say it, I will. Reagan deserves a special place in hell.

  1. yes I know your dad and whole family. and the whole set up is for black men to be put away for life behind concrete. if these were caucasion men , the system would have all kinds of programs and trades set up for these men so they can migrate back into society and oh havin less sentencing too. "

  2. thank you

  3. What do you deserve Toni?

  4. Do the research and you will find that drug were systematically bought into projects and lower income "Black" areas in the hope of doing just what happened..addictions..jail time..prisions..death.. drug babies.disease.. just like test on Black the big "S'..spreading sex disease, dirty nasty killing murdering disease by a government for the people..for to kill some and help others..callibng out from the watchtower to warn the people.. not just Black people and not the paper back that comes out..find it in the Bible and ask for understanding..

  5. if reagan deserves a special place hell for drug polices, then don't forget to save a spot for bill clinton. the president that signed the crack vs powder cocaine law that put many black men in prison for selling crack while white men were given probation for selling powder cocaine.

  6. I hope she doesn’t apologize, like so many Blacks do, once the ‘blade’ is put at their throats by caucasoids!

    What she said was the Truth! Like one of the brothers said above, these drugs were DELIBERATELY brought into our neighborhoods, not just under Rageanboy, but presidents BEFORE and AFTER, him. Nothing has changed!

    Back in the day…Black cops patrolled our neighborhoods…on foot and in ‘paddy wagons’. That’s what they drove back in the day. Some of them were our neighbors, went to the same church, and their children knew played with neighbor’s children.

    If, the Black cops saw some brothers doing something wrong, before they arrested them, they would talk to their parents FIRST, if the crime was not that serious.

    Today, caucasoid pigs control our communities. Sounds like slavery to me! They are still the ‘overseers’ in our neighborhoods. And, they have a license, and badge to kill our Black adults and children, and get away with it! As a matter of Truth, they had slave laws, which allowed caucasoids to kill Black men, women and children without going to jail.

    Back during our forced enslavement, we had no rights, and it was not a felony when a caucasoid killed one of us.

    THESE WERE SOME OF THE VIRGINIA SLAVE LAWS DURING OUR FORCED ENSLAVEMENT:

    Laws Pertaining to Slavery

    Slaves were not considered citizens in antebellum America. Before the fourteenth amendment to the national constitution (July 28, 1868), blacks held no legal rights in this country. Whites controlled politics, and used them to keep slaves and free blacks on a subordinate societal level.

    George M. Stroud wrote in A Sketch of the Laws Relating to Slavery, “Slaves had no head in the state, no name, title or register: nor could they take by purchase or descent; they had no heirs, and therefore could make no will: whatever they acquired was their master’s: they could not plead nor be pleaded for, but were excluded from all civil concerns whatsoever: they were not entitled to the rights and considerations of matrimony, and, therefore, had no relief in the case of adultery: they could be sold, transferred, or pawned as goods of personal estate (p. 31-32).

    (December, 1662) ACT XII. “Negro womens children to serve according to the condition of the mother. WHEREAS some doubts have arrisen whether children got by any Englishman upon a negro woman should be slave or free, Be it therefore enacted and declared by this present grand assembly, that all children borne in this country shall be held bond or free only according to the condition of the mother, And that if any christian shall committ fornication with a negro man or woman, hee or shee offending shall pay double the fines imposed by the former act” (Virginia Slave Laws, Virginia General Assembly).

    (October, 1669) ACT 1. “An act about the causal killing of slaves. WHEREAS the only law in force for the punishment of refractory servants resisting their master, mistris or overseer cannot be inflicted upon negroes, nor the obstinancy of many of them by then violent means supprest, Be it enacted and declared by this grand assembly, if any slave resist his master (or other by his masters order correcting him) and by the extremity of the correction should chance to die, that his death shall not be accompted by felony, but the master (or that other person appointed by the master to punish him) be acquit from molestation, since it cannot be presumed that prepensed malice (which alone makes murther felony) should induce any man to destroy his owne estate”(ibid.). -Laws Pertaining to Slavery

    HAS ANYTHING CHANGED SINCE OUR FORCE ENSLAVEMENT?

    How can this be a ‘war on drugs’ when the majority of the Black brothers, who are shot down by racist pigs; SELDOM HAVE DRUGS ON THEM…only a cell phone! This is a war on BLACK MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

    They [willie lynch/government] incarcerate Black men [the new plantation], they brainwash Black women, [that the epitome of beauty is a caucasoid female], and they drug up our children, MAINLY Black students, in their lower schools of training [public school system] with Ritalin!

    This is a race war on BLACK MEN, WOMEN and CHILDREN.

  7. Amen!!!

    He is so revered by the Republican establishment who overlook his deniel to recognize HIV and deal with it in its earliest stages in the U.S., Iran Contra, and union busting. In my opinion the majority of his time in office, he thot he was in a movie.

  8. A person should NEVER say another person deserves hell or a special place in hell because that person will be judged by God by the same principles. Having said that the WAR ON DRUGS is a complete JOKE!!!

    The biggest joke ever thought of by a US politician. Wars are supposed to end, right? US will NEVER….N.E.V.E.R. win the war on drugs. There’s just too much demand. It’s as if people never learned the first law of economics we learn in school, the law of supply vs demand.

    Legalize marijuana first, if people want to kill themselves on coke, meth, whatever, so long as they are an adult then eventually they should be allowed. The US should legalize all narcos for people over 21 and tax it. Only way we’ll ever pay for the deficit.

  9. The powers that be know better. They saw what happened during prohibition. However, that does not mean we have to take the bait. That does not mean we have to dropout of school, make loads of illegitimate babies, and mug old ladies.

  10. Toni Preckwinkle told the truth! Cheers to her and Prof. Michelle Alexander, author of ‘The New Jim Crow’, a book that proves these same points and more. I’m glad that more intelligent black women are stepping up to the plate and proving that we are in a “quiet war”….It’s due time that black men and women realize that integration is the “illusion of inclusion”, and that Marcus Garvey & Elijah Muhammad were right. Google them….

  11. SHE HAS GOT MY VOTE.

  12. Reagan was one of the worst presidents ever! Iran/Contra the HIV disgrace more than tripling the debt the BS fantasy about destroying the USSR! Reagan afterlife isn’t my judgement but heaven for him??????????? LMAO

  13. Perfect example….Check out this interview:
    http://youtu.be/-WNwGBbzHx4
    This brother did 3 years for murder and 17 for drugs.

  14. yea regan did his part but people like frank lucas are the reason for heroin into a lot of black comunitys just look at the documentaries shit is bigger than just regan stop blaming it on one man.

  15. I don’t see a reason to apologize for this particular admission and/or confession as it seems to be accurate in it’s historical reference.

  16. Nothing new. Africans and Native Americans lost control of their continents because of guns and substance abuse. African Americans have been losing their neigborhoods since the 1980's because of guns and substance abuse. Reagan got rid of the youth jobs programs like ceta and job corp. Also got rid of the credit card interest deduction, and gave huge tax cuts to rich. He also gave amnesty to illegals. He also legalized abortion when he was governor California. Nixon did the same nationall to get rid of the "little black bastards" The goal to reduce the Black population and Black land ownership.

    • ALL OF WHAT YOU SAY IS TRUE, BUT I MUST ADD THAT IT IS NO LONGER A BLACK TARGETED WORLD IT IS GREEN… IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH GREEN YOU ARE TARGETED, TRUST ME I KNOW

  17. Reagan was just as responsible for the advent of crack in this country as any drug dealer on the corner. For some reason white republicans look upon this senile old fool as a hero, maybe for the begining of the destruction of black people and gays in general.

  18. Anyone see the movie Lincoln. It was about the 13th amendment.
    Note the Phrase "except as a punishment for crime".

    13th amendment

    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
    Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[2].

    Again note the phrase. "except as a punishment for crime".
    So according the U.S. constitution prisoners are slaves.
    Don't be a slave. Stay out of prison. Someone offers you drugs say "I don't need it."
    Teach your children to say the same. 1) Call U.S. Congressman Bobby Rush and ask him to resubmit H.R. 1901. That bill would provide 6.5 billion for job and job training programs for our youth. 2) Treat each other better. That's free. 3)Say no to rap songs that glorify killing Black people. I would say all people, but the songs target Black people. 4) Lose the n-word, that's a slave word. 5) Spend more money with each other. A stronger Black American economy will make a stronger American economy.

    It's time to Unite Us.

  19. The drug policy was set up to do exactly what it has done with the pushing of drugs into the poorer areas of the country. They (drugs) could have been shoved into the White areas, but, a viable and easily controlled segment of the country was chosen. Reminds one of the LYNCH method. NO DOUBT.

  20. I’d like to bring Reagan back to life, so I can see him suffer and die again..

  21. reagon knew what he was doing, why no white drug dealers on college campuses and in the suburbs not going to prison? they the ones bringing that shit into the USA other than the mexicans.

  22. I know a person(s) that was upset the Reagan lived after he got shot.

  23. I don’t have with what was said by Preckwinkle, “any one know where the name originates”

    I use to smoke weed, I tried cocaine, even popped some pills. Then I stopped! I decided it was not something I could afford, I didn’t like not being in control of every wakening moment!

    Then when I saw or spoke to someone who was high/…ked up I couldn’t think of a good reason to be in the same condition.

    So I’m saying if your community is beat down by drugs and crime, get rid of the drug dealer and the junkie’s rat them out or take them out by any means necessary! If you can’t count on the cop’s and the government, count on your self!

    It’s not just the white man bring drugs into our community, and they certainly don’t make you take them!

    Had a really hard working Uncle, every Friday he would drink up most of his pay check, he never stopped until he was old, then he had to live in a undesirable community and couldn’t afford any of the things he wanted. I told him it was his own fault, he said he knew it but he had fun doing it!

    Do what you want but don’t blame everyone else, everything is an addiction just because we say it is, people don’t get off drugs because it’s easier to stay on them.

    We have black mothers allowing their sons to be shot up with drugs just because they are being rambunctious it’s what young boys do. In this city they pay the mothers to drug the male kids, not all of them but come on!

    I have no feelings at all for junkie’s or those who sell drugs, If I don’t get you out someone else in the neighborhood will!

    Stop being a whiner, stop begging for someone else to clean up he problem, rat them out or ……. do something!

  24. I loved up to you will receive performed correct here. The caricature is attractive, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an shakiness over that you simply wish be turning in the following. ill surely come more beforehand again as exactly the same nearly a lot often inside of case you defend this hike.
