Frankie Coconuts is a legend in his own mind

“Nobody is doing nothing to stop it. It’s like a wild, wild west in this town, and we need some help” activist Frank Cocanate said.

He shares a growing community sentiment that not only should the Illinois State Police be helping out, but also the National Guard, and he wants the city’s violent crime to be on one leader’s radar in particular.

“…Lawless in this town. We are scared in this town, we need help. We’d love the president to come and see this. Come at night and see what’s going on in this town,” said Cocanate.” (WBBM News Radio 78)

What “growing community sentiment” about sending in the National Guard and State Police to help out is WBBM News Radio talking about? What community are they talking about? The Know-Nothing Community? Or is it the communities in Frank “Frankie Coconuts” Coconate’s head?

We are living in the era of self-proclaimed activists.  Anyone can claim to be an activist and become a media star. There are no credentials, expertise, knowledge, or even proof of activism. If someone says they are an activist, they must be believed. The news media must give them a platform.

Some activists, like many marginalized groups, create an alphabet community. The KNC, Know-Nothing Community, is one such group. Like most alphabet activists in Chicago, they are experts with no expertise. Their activism is equated with expertise by the gullible Chicago news media.

Frank “Frankie Coconuts” Coconate , a political gadfly, publicity hound, and self-admitted associate of organized crime, is one of those KNC “activists.” He is the typical nobody nobody sent, nobody wants, and nobody knows except the news media.

The Chicago news media caters to the whims and whimsy of these “activists,” giving them airtime to express their grievances and, worse, “credibility.” You cannot be one of the alphabet people unless you have grievances and the ability to publicize them.

Frank Coconate showed up at 10 E. Chicago Avenue, the scene of a mass shooting last week. WBBM News Radio 78 gave him a platform to spout his nonsensical bull droppings about violent crime and how to stop it.

Coconate is a typical Know-Nothing. Like many members in the Know-Nothing Community across the city, he demands that Chicago be placed under an “emergency” and that the National Guard be called in to help control/prevent violent crime. Um, someone should tell Frankie Coconuts that is not HOW THINGS WORK.

A note to the less-ons in this city (Lower than morons), the National Guard cannot and will not do anything to curb the rampant violent crime in Chicago. The violence in Chicago is not a major riot, natural, or man-made disaster, which the National Guard is trained for and should be used when needed. Violent criminality is no cause for a “national emergency” or the National Guard.

Coconate wants the State Police to assist the Chicago Police Department. Frankie Coconuts must be living under a palm tree, and one too many coconuts fell on his head. The Illinois State Police have been investigating and making criminal arrests in Chicago. They investigate crimes on the expressways in the city. They have their hands full.

Members of the Know-Nothing Community in Chicago want to see the National Guard patrolling the streets and sincerely believe the guard can help. They parrot it on social media. They are people who do not know HOW THINGS WORK. If it sounds like a great idea, it must be. Geez, these people are the dregs at the bottom of the chromosomal gene pool.

Too many people believe whatever the Know-Nothing Community espouses because the KNC are supposed “activists.”. People like Coconate feed into their ignorance. Coconate’s followers get on social media and demand whatever nonsense people like Frankie Coconuts spews from his soup coolers.

Coconate is a legend in his own mind. Ask him, and he will tell you. Coconate is a former City of Chicago Water Department employee. Evidently, that makes him an expert on violent crime, criminality, policing, National Guard deployments, and “emergencies.” Maybe he should get a job at the public policy think tank run by the Cocos Nucifera Group.

Here is a clue for the Chicago news media. If Frank “Frankie Coconuts” Coconate calls, ignore him. He is not an activist. He does not practice activism. He is ignorant about how things work. He is just another blowhard blowing smoke up your and the public’s arses.

TimeOut Chicago shart the bed again

Looking at you Image: PV Bella

TimeOut Chicago has to be the worst of the worst media about Chicago. Their tagline is, “We know Chicago. Do you.” It is a big lie. The chromosomal defectives who write for that trash bag know absolutely zero, zip, nada about Chicago. Now, they are trying to give “law abiding lessons.” What are they, law dogs?

I get that the children who write this drivel want to appear cool and hip. But cool and especially hip means you know what the f**k you are talking about. You have useful knowledge to impart. The operative word is knowledge. Worse, their editors let them get away with this cazzate. The editors have no editorial standards.

Their latest Class X felony came across my social media feed yesterday. The 13 rules of living in Chicago Here’s how to unofficially be a law-abiding citizen of Chicago.Who elected these know-nothing wankers as the “law abiding” police? It is just more ignorant stupidity from crayon-wielding kindergarteners. Why are they promoting a two-year-old article on social media again?

Here is the list of their latest mortal sins. As the Polish nuns would say, Jesus, Mary, and Jumpin Joseph.

Master CTA etiquette.  Don’t stand at the door. Take your backpack off. Blah, blah, blah. If people have to be reminded of this, they have no business on public transportation. They and we would be better off if they pi**ed on the third rail to thin out the herd. The sin of the wastes of putrid protoplasm at TimeOut is one of omission. They refuse to put in is do not eat or drink beverages on the CTA. It is illegal. But these are probably the morons who eat and drink with abandon on public transportation, pretending they are in a dining car.

Understand that “Windy City” has nothing to do with weather. This is ridiculous. Who cares if people know this? Does TimeOut Chicago know how the city got that moniker or who coined it? If you are going to give advice, you should at least provide an explanation. I bet those dunderheads do not know the Chicago meaning of the “hawk.”

Scale back your use of the term “Chi.”First, I never ever heard anyone use the word Chi about Chicago. Secondly, real Chicagoans do not give a rat’s rear end what you call the city. Chi, Chi-Town, Chiraq, Murder City, Deadville, or whatever.

Know your ward number and your alderman’s name. Why? So you can impress your friends whilst drinking a triple decaf soy latte with three different syrups, topped with oat milk “whipped cream,” and rainbow sprinkles at Starf**ks? The only day you need those two bits of information is election day if by happenchance you vote.

Watch out for cyclists. This is partially correct, but they have it ass-backward. Cyclists should watch out for pedestrians, cars, and car doors. Most of those two-wheeled terrorists are oblivious to everything except their cardio pump. They violate traffic laws with abandon. Then, when one is killed by violating laws, they erect litter blight, those white bikes, to permanently commemorate the fallen. What, are these people heroes of the republic or something?

And Divvy riders—stay off the damn sidewalks. What about regular cyclists? Or are they allowed to break the law and ride on sidewalks? Most divvy riders weeble and wobble like children who just had their training wheels removed. What they should ask is, how much did Divvy bribe contribute to politicians to put those ridiculous contraptions all over the city? Divvy and others, including scooters, should be banned.

Try your best to stop talking about the weather constantly. Do these people think they are Emily F**king Post? Talk and complain about whatever you want, including the weather. No one is offended or thinks it is a faux pas. Real Chicagoans complain about the weather and everything else in this junkyard of a city. We are not happy if we do not have something to b**ch about.

Stop treating the South Side like an embarrassing family member we don’t talk about. This makes me want to vomit in my soup. It is proof these circle-jerk tweenagers have no clue about anything. Talk about whatever neighborhood you want. Bash it, trash it, or laud it. Mr. Rogers does not have a neighborhood here, thank the Great Comedian. Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, and we always had a healthy “neighborly” competition. Criticize all you want. REAL Chicagoans do not care. There is one exception. South Side versus North Side- Sox versus Cubs. That could get you stuffed headfirst into a trash bin.

Use escalators correctly. Oh please. Stay on the right so the mountain trekkers can climb on the left? Escalators are for riding. If you want to climb, USE THE F**KING STAIRS. Ride however you want. Hell, stand in the middle. Pass gas. Who gives a s**t?

Accept ketchup on hot dogs. No. Never, ever, ever. Never, ever, ever is a long, long, long time. There is a very specific reason you never put that Brit twit s**t on hotdogs. It has nothing to do with custom. Only people who have no taste buds put ketchup on hot dogs.

Know your local grocery stores. Really? Really? Do these crayon-wielding scribbling slap d**ks think people are as stupid as they are? Who does not know their local grocery store? How does one shop for food if they do not know their local grocery store, or if you are a real Chicagoan, plural?

Stop reenacting every movie ever made in Chicago. What adult or even teen does this? I never saw anyone do this, not even young drunks in bars. Maybe, just maybe, it is TimeOut Chicago’s secret obsession they do in the privacy of their most intimate space.

Be able to recommend one good pizza spot. Is pizza the only culinary delight in Chicago? Or is that all these acne pimple popping pus heads live on? What about a good pasta spot? Maybe a good Chinese, Ramen, Mexican, Uzbekistan, Thai, Polish, or a good diner? How about good f**king any kind of food spot. How many free pizzas did Pequod’s bribe the Timeout writers with for the shameless plug?

I get a kick every time these bed sharters write “advice” pieces about Chicago. If you take their advice, you will never be a real Chicagoan. You will never enjoy living here. You will always be a stranger, treated with disdain and ridicule. If you want to learn about Chicago, never read any advice from TimeOut Chicago.

How low can they go

 “What race is Ernie is Bert? You are insane PBS and we should stop funding you…” (Matt Schlapp, Chairman of The American Conservative Political Action Committee/Twitter)

“Look, it’s not just the fact that they are trying to bring race into Ernie and Bert, which — I grew up watching, I’m older than you, but I grew up watching. And it wasn’t ever about race, it was about learning lessons and learning to read and learning tolerance. And they want to inject race.” (Matt Schlapp, Chairman of The American Conservative Political Action Committee/Emphasis mine)

The above photograph is an apt depiction of Matt Schlapp and Senator Ted Cruz for their ridiculous attacks on Sesame Street.

Sesame Street is introducing a new character, Ji-Young, a Korean American, on Thanksgiving Day to “Celebrate the diversity of the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.” The character is described as “rocking out on her electric guitar and skateboarding.” She is pretty much a typical American kid living in an imagined typical American diverse urban neighborhood.

In the realm of, you gotta be f**king kidding me, CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp attacked Sesame Street and demanded PBS be defunded. The reason for his brutal attack? The introduction of the Asian-American character to the cast. It is evident Schlapp does not know the definition of the word tolerance. Maybe he should ask his Cuban American wife, Mercedes.

Earlier this month, freedumb loving Cuban Canadian American, Senator Ted Cruz- Cancun Cruz- tweeted that Sesame Street was “government propaganda for your… 5-year-old” after Big Bird announced he received the COVID vaccine.

Sesame Street is targeted as Public Enemy Number One for doing what they have been doing for over fifty years, providing educational entertainment for children and adults.

The freedumb loving Schlapp doubled down attacking Big Bird. “It’s not just that,” he added, “We also have Big Bird touting the vaccine, stuff that you never really saw Sesame Street get into.” (Mediaite) Mediate pointed out that several years ago, Big Bird promoted the measles vaccine.

CPAC then tweeted that Big Bird, Bert, and Ernie were not invited to the CPAC 2022 Kindergarten Jamboree. It’s not like the characters would want to be invited to or attend a competing puppet show.

Attacking puppets is ridiculous. Schlapp and Cruz revel in outrageous behavior. It appears their only function is to amuse while trying to destroy. How can any sane, intelligent person take this duo seriously?

Sesame Street sometimes brings up difficult topics, telling stories in compelling ways that parents and children can relate to and discuss. This is nothing new. What is wrong with an all-American Korean American character or Big Bird touting vaccines for children during a lingering pandemic?

With all the problems in this country, these two buffoons pick on a children’s educational television show. CPAC is an extreme right-wing clown academy with Schlapp as its ringmaster. It is apparent Cruz is their summa cum laude graduate and valedictorian.

Matt Schlapp is not an elected official, so his “we” should stop funding PBS holds no water. He has no power to do anything. PBS has real power. They have people power, the millions of people who tune in every day for their programming. Those millions of people go by another name, voters.

Public figures like Schlapp makes one wonder if the Know-Nothings are returning from the grave. Are the nativists walking among us? When will this Know-Nothing nativist divorce his Cuban American wife, Mercedes, to prove he is a true, red, white, and blue ‘Merican?

We already know the Cuban Canadian American Cruz is a publicity prostitute. He will turn a cheap trick for any publicity he can garner. To guys like Cruz, there is no such thing as bad publicity. Keeping your bearded mug in the news is always a positive.

Matt Schlapp and Ted Cruz are devoid of decency, civility, and honor. Instead of putting forth civil, intelligent criticism, they act like snarling junkyard dogs. They are smart enough to know their fake anger is red meat for the ignorant who walk among us. That is the limit of their intelligence.
