Radical Democrat Surrenders New York City, and More, to the Mob

NEW YORK — The Far-Left Democrats who are busy running New York City into the ground just surrendered America’s largest metropolis to the mob. Sandinista Mayor Bill de Blasio and the radical City Council on Wednesday slashed the NYPD’s $6 billion budget by $1 billion or 16.6 percent.

In normal times, this would be a risky move, at best. Amid Gotham’s soaring crime rates, this is akin to firing lifeguards while a beach gets lashed by riptides.

The NYPD’s latest statistics show a city bashed by powerful criminal currents. Compare January 1 to June 21, 2020, with 2019’s like period:

•Murder is up 24 percent

•Shooting incidents have risen 36 percent

•Shooting victims have climbed 42 percent

For the week of June 15 to June 21, 2020, versus those dates in 2019:

•Shooting incidents had jumped 342 percent

•Shooting victims had rocketed 414 percent

Last weekend’s shooting of two, one fatally, near Madison Square Park confirms that severe violence now terrorizes neighborhoods where even nasty looks had grown rare.

Thus, this is an inopportune time to cancel two of the next four rookie classes entering the Police Academy, even as NYPD’s uniformed headcount will plunge by 1,163 officers, and retirements have accelerated 49 percent, versus this time last year.

These retreats are atop June’s dismissal of NYPD’s legendary and highly effective plainclothes unit. No more undercover cops in New York. What could go wrong?

De Blasio and the Jacobin Democrats respond that this $1 billion will fund youth programs, social services, and education — where rampant spending already yields grim results. Somehow, the thugs who have smashed windows, beaten cops, and opened fire on their fellow New Yorkers seem unlikely to be corrected by ceramics classes and aromatherapy.

This triumph for Antifa and Black Lives Matter foreshadows more chaos and bloodshed in New York City, and, ironically, more crime and murder at the expense of the same blacks whose lives we correctly are told matter.

“You’re seeing, now, mob rule, in my opinion, and you’re seeing the City Council bow to mob rule,” said Police Commissioner Dermot Shea. “Let’s mark the date on the calendar on how long it’s going to be before we’re having a conversation about New Yorkers crying out for more police. And I think that day is coming.”

City Councilman Joe Borelli, one of that body’s three Republicans, told Fox News Channel: “We had 102 shooting victims last week alone, and not one single bullet was fired by the gun of an NYPD officer. And yet these are the justifications we’re using to make cuts to the force.”

BLM’s chant, “Disarm, defund, abolish the police” is becoming public policy. Los Angeles just chopped its police budget by $150 million. Minneapolis’s City Council voted unanimously to disband its police force and “reimagine” law enforcement. And several Virginia Democrats propose to reduce physical assaults on police officers from felonies to misdemeanors. This proves that they are not just stupid. These Virginia Democrats are evil.

Appeasing lawless thugs will not end well.

What America needs is a re-dedication to smart policing, starting with robust statements of support for good cops and a commitment to root out bad ones. Improved training, proliferation of body and squad-car cameras, and legalizing such things as outdoor drinking will reduce the chances that low-level civilian encounters blow sky-high.

As for those who lately have demolished statues and perpetrated looting, riots, and arson, two words come to mind:

MASS ARRESTS!

The FBI and local police departments should harvest security footage, police cameras, social media posts, and citizen tip lines. Authorities immediately must identify those who went beyond peaceful protest and destroyed private and public property and wounded or killed innocent people. These vicious crooks need to be apprehended, prosecuted, and dumped in prison by the thousands — for a long, long time.

These urgent steps, rather than letting radical thugs wander free, finally might restore peace to America’s streets.

Who really is in charge of New York City?

Mayor Bill “Stalinista” De Blasio or Mrs. Bill “Peronita” DeBlasio?

I do not know her name and do not care to know it. However NYC decisions made in the last six months clearly point to nepotism and illegal transfer of power.

Based on recent budget cuts, if NYPD Commissioner has his Kahunas, he will withdraw the security details of all elected officials and their families in NYC and risk his job.

His career will get catapulted.

The only way to get back to any kind of normalcy would be for Blobio or the city’s council persons to suffer a personal family loss to their so-called anarchy.

But the people can’t own guns to defend themselves because that’s what the police is there for according to the bleeding hearts but in the same breath they claim police are racist and we can self govern without them yet when we did that (Seattle ring a bell?) more people died under the same self appointed leaders who previously claimed that they would save those people’s lives in the first place. Oh yeah almost forgot, Minneapolis officials just voted to increase their own personal security detail using “private” funds. But I’m sure it’s just a coincidence….

It’s time for an immediate realignment in this country. Folks if we don’t start standing up and being counted, our lives as we know it will disappear. If we think that by simply changing horses in mid stream, all things will return to the way they were, we’re wrong. If we continue to hide in our homes believing this phase too will pass, it won’t. Just by observing the day to day goings on, our society here in the US is moving further and further out of our control, not to mention the control of our leaders and our law enforcement. This is not a summer of love like many of us remember from our youth in the 60’s and 70’s. This is an altogether new phenomenon. These folks are coming for us. Leftist mayors and their councils, leftist governors and their bureaucrats, all have to go. If it’s not done sooner, there will be no later, and we will only have ourselves to blame. We are on the brink of disaster and we’re looking over the edge.
