WATCH: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Talks About “Pledging Allegiance To The New World Order”

On Monday, Twitter user ‘VICCI’ shared a strange video clip of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot talking about city training and how agencies and deputies who have pledged “allegiance to the New World Order” should be involved.

The exact context of the discussion is difficult to make out. Watch below:

Transcript:

“…With the executive branch, because otherwise it doesn’t work. So, you gotta eliminate that compliance and make a mandate.

“And then you do training, particularly in the city […] licensing departments, whether it’s zoning, buildings, housing will be impacted by it, planning, certainly.

And you pick the people around those agencies, and the deputies that are pledging allegiance to the New World Order and good governance. And then I think you have the inspector general do some spot audits to make sure that…”

User ‘Bobby D’ shared the clip again on Wednesday and had this to say about it:

“Wait, I thought we sheltered to ruin our economy to take down Trump? Wait, I meant to flatten the curve. Well looky here, apparently it’s to usher in the New World Order! Raise your hand if you think this whole thing is a scam.”

Others who have seen the video also gave their thoughts about what it could possibly mean:

“Holy sh*t, they’re this blatant about it. They’re literally calling out for a New World Order.”

“They’re full mask off with this coronavirus; with bills with 666 in it. Satanist call codes everywhere. Bill Gates’ wife wearing upsidedown crosses.”

“What the f*ck happened to the Democratic party? They sold out to China and the NWO or what?”

“They know no one will do anything about it, and no one has, so they can just admit it openly now and laugh in your face.”

UPDATE: Apparently this clip was taken from a 2019 Chicago Tribune interview. It was published on their website in an article titled ‘Lori Lightfoot unfiltered: The full Tribune Q&A with Chicago’s mayor-elect.’

Here is the question and answer portion of the interview where Lightfoot mentions the New World Order:

Q: You ran on getting rid of aldermanic privilege (the practice of aldermen having veto power over all permitting and zoning decisions in their wards). That’s probably easier to talk about than the mechanics of actually withdrawing that practice. It’s not like it’s a line in the city code. It’s deeper than that. How do you go about addressing that?

A: I’m going to consult with some of the alderman who have been supportive of the campaign. I’m very clear on it. Some of them have a very different view, but I’m very clear that it’s got to go. I want to do it in a way that doesn’t do further harm, the quintessential throwing the baby out with the bathwater. But it’s got to go. How do you do it? My thoughts are that because it’s not written into law and it’s just a very dominant culture … I’m thinking about an executive order from day one that says in more legalese than this, “This is not a thing. We will no longer honor this.”

Because the way that aldermanic prerogative works is there’s got to be compliance with the executive branch, because otherwise it doesn’t work. So, you’ve got to eliminate that compliance, and you make it a mandate. And then you do training, particularly in the city licensing departments whether it’s zoning, buildings, housing, planning, and you pick the people who run those agencies and the deputies that are pledging allegiance to the new world order and good governance. And then I think you have the inspector general do some spot audits to make sure that there is real compliance.

You obviously have to engage in a dialogue with the City Council. It’s not that alderman no longer are able to have notice and an opportunity to be heard. If aldermen are doing their job right, they should be the people who are closest to the vibe and the beat in their neighborhood and have a very important role to play on a number of different issues, but not a unilateral, unchecked right. That’s gone as soon as I take office, because it prevents us from engaging in citywide initiatives, it prevents us from moving ahead on important issues like affordable housing and it is fundamentally corrosive and there is no way to monitor it in a way you can bring transparency and accountability to it.

If I’ve got to go and kiss the ring of the alderman for everything, for a license to have a block club party or whatever it is and there is a catalog of all the things that are run through the aldermanic offices, that is fundamentally a problem. And it’s the tens of thousands of touches that an alderman has on a regular basis with constituents who think that they have to give some additional thing to get access to basic city services, that is the corrosive effect. And it’s obviously worse when an alderman takes that power and then tries to monetize it for him or herself.
