Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. – Actually, anyone who didn’t see this one coming should be as embarrassed as Marxist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is this morning. On April 18, the Campaign Update discussed the nifty new snitch line de Blasio had set up for his loyal comrades there in the Five Burroughs, which allowed people to text a photo of any dangerous non-compliant subversives who stood within 6 feed of a head of cabbage to “enforcement” personnel.
Well, anyone who has spent any time at all in New York City instantly understood how that city’s residents would likely respond to de Blasio’s Stalinist setup. From a piece at the New York Post:
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s critics let him know how they really felt about him ordering New Yorkers to snitch on each other for violating social-distancing rules — by flooding his new tip line with crank complaints including “dick pics” and people flipping the bird, The Post has learned.
Photos of extended middle fingers, the mayor dropping the Staten Island groundhog and news coverage of him going to the gym have all been texted to a special tip line that de Blasio announced Saturday, according to screenshots posted on Twitter.
One user sent the message “We will fight this tyrannical overreach!” to the service and got an automated message that in part said, “Hello, and thank you for texting NYC311.”
“F–k you!” replied @MorganLSchmidt1, along with a meme showing Adolf Hitler and the words “TO THOSE TURNING IN YOUR NEIGHBORS AND LOCAL BUSINESSES — YOU DID THE REICH THING.”
“Start flooding their reporting text numbers with this pics!” the tweet added.
What’s most amazing is that de Blasio himself has lived his entire life in the city, and apparently had no clue that this would be the result. The Post reports that the initial response was so overwhelming that “enforcement” officials had to temporarily shut down the line and initiate a new pre-vetting process before the messages are relayed to “enforcement” precincts.
This clown wanted to be president? Really??? – Further demonstrating exactly how little this gigantic Marxist moron understands about the teeming masses that have surrounded him throughout his entire life, de Blasio on Monday expressed shock at the news that many of the 1,500 prisoners he recently released by decree from New York City jails have gone on to … wait for it … COMMIT MORE CRIMES! Because, after all, they are criminals!
The Post, which has a field day with this raging nitwit Mayor pretty much every day of the week, again reports that at least 50 of these convicts have gone on to commit additional crimes in the days since their release, and many of them have simply been released back into society yet again so they can go commit more crimes. I swear I do not make this stuff up:
It is “unconscionable” that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.
“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,” the mayor said during his morning briefing Monday, which came on the heels of a Post report outlining the issue.
De Blasio said the number of re-offenders remains relatively small and that the city was “buckling down” on monitoring and supervising released prisoners.
“We do see some recidivism. I have not seen a huge amount, but any amount is obviously troubling,” he said.
“We’re going to just keep buckling down on it, making sure there’s close monitoring and supervision to the maximum step possible. And the NYPD is going to keep doing what they’re doing.”
Let’s all also take this moment to remember that, as late as March 13 – 6 full weeks after the President had banned all travel into the U.S. from China, and weeks after he had expanded that order to include other countries and begun taking other mitigation measures to fight this virus – this monstrous jackass was urging the people of his city to just go about living their normal lives. To this day, he still has not shut down the city’s subways, which are just petri dishes for spreading this virus, or the city’s buses.
Is it any wonder, then, that New York City has been the literal epicenter of this viral plague in the U.S.?
And by the way, let’s not let New York Governor Andrew Cuomo off the hook. Cuomo has been slathered with praise by a lapdog press for his performance during this crisis, but he is also massively complicit, since he could have at any time stepped in to overrule de Blasio’s many acts of rank stupidity. But the truth is that, while he does conduct a good press conference, Cuomo is as rotten and clueless as de Blasio.
One columnist – I’ve lost the link now and forgotten who it was [It was Dennis Prager at PJMedia] – asked a fantastic question the other day: If this viral plague was centered in the states of, say, Montana and Wyoming rather than in the corrupt news media centers of New York and New Jersey, would we be responding to it in the way we have been?
Think about it: The vast majority of the talking heads you see on your TV screens faking the “news” every day live in and around New York City. Many of them commute to work from their homes in New Jersey. Don’t you think their coverage of this virus, and their early efforts to foment a national panic over it were colored by the fact that the void of competent leadership had helped make their home states the place where over half of America’s cases had sprung up?
By the same token, can anyone truly believe that Cuomo and de Blasio would have shut New York City down if this outbreak had been centered in, say, Alabama and Mississippi? Or any other two adjacent states you can think of? Of course they wouldn’t, and they shouldn’t. More to the point, no one in the corrupt news media would have been trying to panic them into doing so.
So, when you see de Blasio acting the buffoon on national television every day, realize he is not just some harmless circus clown. He is in fact a national menace whose utter inability to lead in a crisis has exacerbated this situation for all of us.
That is all.
