Mayor de Blasio

Mike Huckabee rips Mayor de Blasio for comments about National Guard: ‘His ignorance is stunning’

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said on Wednesday that NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio refusing to send in the National Guard to address the rioting “makes no sense.” Huckabee told “Fox & Friends” that it was wrong for de Blasio to claim the National Guard is not trained to help police quell violence. “Yes, they are. That is exactly what they are trained for. … His ignorance of that is stunning to me,” Huckabee said. Huckabee said that the National Guard is “carefully trained” and “know how to get into these situations” to handle them. De Blasio earlier Tuesday announced that the city’s curfew will be extended through the end of the week following yet another night of looting, destruction and “vicious attacks on police officers.” The decision to order residents to stay indoors from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. comes as De Blasio simultaneously urged local community leaders to “not let outsiders attack” by stepping forward, creating peace and taking charge of their neighborhoods. The Democrat’s administration so far has failed to stop roving bands of looters from ransacking everything from chain stores to mom-and-pop businesses in recent days. “We are going to ensure there are additional NYPD resources where they are needed,” de Blasio told reporters Tuesday while announcing the curfew extension. “We are going to work actively and strategically to stop any disorder, but again community leaders need to be a part of this effort.” When de Blasio was asked by a reporter if he intends to call in the National Guard for help – as many governors across the U.S. have done in hopes to quell rioting linked to George Floyd demonstrations – he poured cold water on the idea. “We do not need, nor do we think it is wise for the National Guard to be in New York City. Nor any armed forces,” he said. “When outside armed forces go into communities no good comes of it.” New York City implemented its first curfew in decades Monday night around 11 p.m. But before that even went into effect, the looting was well underway, particularly in the Manhattan and Bronx boroughs.

Wow..  Gov. Huckabee (R) is exactly right.  Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) comments truly are stunningly ignorant.  To borrow a Rush-ism..  He is a “glittering jewel of colossal ignorance,”…and equally incompetent.  First of all..   The National Guard in peacetime is local to the state, and the commander in chief is that state’s governor.  So, they are NOT “outside armed forces,” as he suggests.  They are members of that state, and that community.  They are citizen soldiers who are full time citizens, and part time soldiers  and are specifically trained to support and augment civilian critical response agencies whether it is to support disasters from hurricanes and blizzards, or to supporting law enforcement in times like these.  For him to suggest otherwise shows either his ignorance of that fact, which illustrates his incompetence for the job he holds, OR it illustrates his disdain for the military in general.  It’s actually probably both, as he has on numerous occasions spoken out against the NYPD, oh…and remember, his daughter was arrested Saturday night for involvement in the protests/rioting that occurred there.  Soo..  The seed probably doesn’t fall far from the de Blasio tree..  Bill de Blasio is arguably the most incompetent mayor of a big city in America.  He is a disgrace.

Gutfeld on Bill de Blasio releasing criminals on the street to reoffend

Remember when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio freed a bunch of jail inmates because he feared they might get the coronavirus? Well, at least 50 hit the street to victimize the naive civilians who elected him. Mind-blowing, right? So how did this dimwitted garment bag of dirt respond? De Blasio said: “I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done.” Shocker! I went to the thugs for comment, but they were deeply hurt that the mayor found their actions unconscionable, and swore that from now on, they’ll never mug again — if the mayor lets them out, gives them tickets to the next Mets game, and a hug. De Blasio will address the offer after he hits the gym across town. Just kidding – I think. I normally avoid ad hominem attacks, but de Blasio is not an actual hominem. He’s a walking stack of stupid, like Jenga with feet. He’s literally the biggest joke in American politics. It sucks that in a nation of adults, we’re ruled by idiot children, who choose to ignore the links between actions and consequences. Remember, as the coronavirus spread, de Blasio implored people to lead normal lives. And now his own actions spread crime like a virus. And let’s not forget this clown’s advice for citizens who see others failing to social distance. Fink on them! De Blasio told the people of New York to do the following to enforce social distancing: “When you see a crowd, when you see a line that’s not distanced, when you see a supermarket that’s too crowded – anything – you can report it right away so we can get help there to fix the problem. And now it’s as simple as taking a photo. All you got to do is take the photo, and put the location with it, and bang, send a photo like this, and we will make sure that enforcement comes right away.” Wow, he loves his Stasi. So first he tells people to ignore the virus. Then he sets loose thugs on the city. Then he asks fellow citizens to turn into narcs. What a creep. Someone should take a picture of him, and hang it at every post office: The most unwanted mayor in America. Or toss it in the bottom of a urinal and flatter him. I’d say lock him up, but then he’d only release himself to a parade he arranged – only to reoffend at a later date.

Mayor Bill de Blasio really is the biggest joke in politics.  Remember when he was admonishing people NOT to go to the gym, and then the very next day he was caught going himself.  And, when confronted about his brazen hypocrisy said that he needed to stay in shape to help in the fight against the virus. Wow..  That’s taking entitlement, and elitism to a WHOLE new level.  What a tool..  Thanks to Greg Gutfeld for being spot-on as usual.  That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on April 21, 2020.  Excellent!!      🙂

Starnes: Poultry vs. Pinhead: New York City’s mayor says boycott Chick-fil-A

Mayor Bill de Blasio and members of the New York City Council are calling for a city-wide boycott of Chick-fil-A – urging citizens to refrain from eating plump juicy chicken breasts tucked between hot buttered buns. “I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them,” the mayor told DNAInfo.com. Councilman Daniel Dromm was even more blunt – accusing the Southern restaurant chain of spreading a “message of hate.” Chick-fil-A opened its first New York City restaurant in 2015 – followed by a second location in April. The mayor’s remarks came after it was announced a third restaurant would be opening in Queens – which happens to be the district represented by Councilman Dromm. So why does the mayor and the city council have a problem with Chick-fil-A – the unofficial chicken of Jesus? Well, Chick-fil-A is owned by a devoutly Christian family. Back in 2012 company president Dan Cathy ruffled feathers by telling a reporter that he believed marriage is between a man and a woman. And Sweet Lord Almighty, but the militant LGBT activists and leftwing lawmakers have been squawking ever since. “What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong,” said De Blasio, a de-facto Communist sympathizer who eats his pizza with a fork. So it’s not so much that de Blasio is anti-chicken as much as he is anti-Christian. Councilman Dromm, who founded the Queens Lesbian and Gay Pride Committee and organized the first Queens LGBT Pride Parade and Festival, deeply loathes Chick-fil-A. “This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love,” Dromm said in a statement. “It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations. Councilman Dromm is either ignorant or a liar – or perhaps both. “The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender,” a spokesperson told DNAInfo. Chick-fil-A is not in the business of spreading hate. They are in the business of selling chicken and waffle fries and deliciously refreshing lemonade. And they do not have a policy that prohibits same-sex love. That’s a blatant lie. Chick-fil-A could care less whether birds of a feather flock together or not. Another item to consider: Chick-fil-A employs hundreds of New Yorkers – adding significant tax dollars to the city’s coffers. And that doesn’t even include the cash donations they’ve made to a number of NYC charities. But that doesn’t matter to people like Mayor de Blasio and Councilman Dromm. Full and complete compliance to the LGBT agenda is the only thing that matters – even if it means hundreds of New Yorkers lose their jobs. Perhaps the mayor and the city council should mind their own business and let Chick-fil-A mind theirs. Meanwhile, New Yorkers don’t seem all that interested in obeying the mayor’s boycott. As matter of fact, instead of eating less chicken – they’re eating more chicken! There was a lunchtime line that stretched around the block at the Chick-fil-A located a block away from the Fox News Corner of the World. Before I head over to Chick-fil-A for a snack, I wanted to make one more observation. It was last year – just after they had opened their inaugural store in Manhattan. I noticed that after two weeks of drinking all that sweet tea and eating fried food, New Yorkers seemed a bit more – how can I put this – a bit more pleasant – and easy going. Folks on the subway were even waving at each other – with all five fingers – instead of one. Now, that’s the power of the capital G — Gospel Bird. -Todd Starnes is host of Fox News & Commentary, heard on hundreds of radio stations.
