IHPM — Episode #28

The Speech by May­or Daley: On the vio­lence between pro­test­ers and the Chica­go Police at the 1968 Demo­c­ra­t­ic Nation­al Con­ven­tion. The May­or had a Freudi­an slip when he said the Police­man was there to “PRESERVE” dis­or­der. The May­or gave orders to shoot to kill, and the police depart­ment was grant­ed a union after their com­pli­ance with the Mayor’s wish­es.


Ira relates the orig­i­nal Hyde Park in Lon­don to Chicago’s Hyde Park and how in Lon­don there is a soap box tra­di­tion where peo­ple can get up on an actu­al soap box and pon­tif­i­cate freely about any sub­ject that strikes their fan­cy. They draw crowds of lis­ten­ers while they exer­cise their free speech. They do this with­in view of the Tow­er of Lon­don where mass exe­cu­tions used to be car­ried out on dis­si­dents and rab­ble rousers. The term falling off the wag­on comes from the doomed get­ting drunk to meet their exe­cu­tion­er and falling off the wag­on on the way to the gal­lows. Ira broad­cast­ing from Chicago’s Hyde Park, gets on his soap box about the sen­ti­ment to remove May­or Rahm Emmanuel from office in the wake of his part in the cov­er-up scan­dal behind the ram­pant mis­con­duct of the CPD.
