Rahm Emmanuel And Chicago Values

Following the Chick-Fil-A dust up over same sex marriage, Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emmanuel, aired this public statement:
Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago values. They're not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you're gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values.
Now, having lived most of my life in the Chicago area, I'm really not sure that any company would want to even share in Chicago's values.  Chicago is a city that has always been know as one of the most corrupt in the nation.  It is a city that is dominated by union demands.  It is a city where cronyism, kickbacks, and thuggery are practiced by politicians and police, alike.  It is a home for organized crime and gangs with nationally-recognized violence.  It was the home of Al Capone, and, when it comes to voter fraud, there's this old slogan about voting in Chicago:
Vote early and often.  And, don't forget to bring your dead relatives with you so they can vote, too!
Then, too, the Mayor seems to be ignoring the fact that Illinois has a law on the books that bans same-sex marriage.

Lastly, gay marriage in not supported by most blacks, who make up nearly 33% of the city's population.  Apparently, Rahm is also implying that black values aren't Chicago values.
