City officials in Chicago decided to make a political statement against Trump by building a giant, golden ‘#RealFake’ sculpture meant to mock the president’s accusations that the mainstream media consists of fake news.
Placed in downtown Chicago opposite Trump Tower, city officials thought they were being clever by erecting the statue, intended to galvanize a largely anti-Trump population. They may have been mistaken, however, as a new short film from RebelPundit filmmakers Jeremy Segal and Andrew Marcus, titled “Chicago Carnage,” shows that community organizers aren’t thrilled with the structure or what it says about the goals of the city government.
Featuring community organizers Paul McKinley and Mark Carter, the film unpacks how the sculpture has been received across varying political and economic classes. The two organizers feel the citizens of Chicago who are most in need are an afterthought in the political gamesmanship of the city elite.
“It is ironic that this sign would show up right here, and not in front of City Hall,” Paul McKinley fumes. “Its placement is a great deception to distract people from real issues.”
McKinley and Carter noted that when running a city plagued with crime, drugs, and poverty to the extent Chicago is, it’s interesting officials would choose such a meaningless project to pour their money into. To them, it is an example of the “social engineering” and “liberal agenda” purported by the city’s elite.
“They are not trying to resolve the problems in this city. They need things to happen exactly the way they are happening … the fake news is that this city is a city for everyone. This is a city for the elite,” says Carter.
