Rahm: ‘Chicago Is the Most American of American Cities’

by Nathaniel Botwinick

Last week, Rahm Emanuel told students at Northwestern University that “Chicago is the most American of American cities. It’s not just any city. If you want to come and see America, you come to its heartland. And what is the capital of that heartland? Chicago.” His city, however, still has the very un-American murder rate — there have been 510 murders in Chicago so far this year, and the city’s rate has far outstripped the national average.
