Rebel Pundit: A Dec. 19, 2013 town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence, exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and black alderman in City Hall. One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park.
