One Mayor Put All His Citizens At Risk With One Dangerous Move

Mayor Bill de Blasio

Mass rioting and looting has erupted across the city.

Many local Democrat politicians have done nothing in response to the chaos.

And now one mayor just put all his citizens at risk with a dangerous move.

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio is making a strong push for the title of worst mayor in America.

He’s been an abject failure on so many levels.

Even Governor Andrew Cuomo, who’s terrible in his own right, called out de Blasio for his horrific handling of rioting and looting in the city.

De Blasio, a socialist who once said he would do away with property rights if he could, has been at odds with his police department ever since being elected.

He’s thrown them under the bus every time he gets the opportunity and now he’s chopping the police budget by over $1 billion.

De Blasio said, “I am excited to say that we have a plan that can achieve real reform, that can achieve real redistribution, and at the same time ensure that we keep our city safe.”

Socialists always get excited about “redistribution.”

But the idea that de Blasio’s plan will keep the city safe is both delusional and dangerous.

Over a nine-day span in June, there have been 112 victims in 83 shooting incidents.

The number of shootings in June 2020 is up 358% over shootings in June 2019.

The statistics are horrific, but the so-called mainstream media largely refuses to talk about the violent protests and riots in major cities.

If they did talk about it, they would have trouble categorizing the protests as “mostly peaceful.”

And since police are hamstrung, it’s no surprise that New Yorkers are flocking to gun stores to defend themselves.

First-time gun buyers are quickly learning about New York’s onerous gun laws; New York ranks 43rd in gun rights, but city gun regulations are much more restrictive than they are upstate.

It took fewer than two terms for de Blasio’s terrible policies to ruin New York City – which had been previously turned around by Rudy Giuliani’s realistic approach to crime.

As is the case with many blue cities, they elect a law-and-order Republican out of desperation, then revert back to the leftist policies that got them in trouble in the first place.

Leftism is a complete denial of reality, and New Yorkers are going to pay the price.

De Blasio himself admitted that his zero-bail policy led to a crime wave in the city.

Crime doesn’t go away because of soft-on-crime policies.

If these politicians want communities to thrive, they need law and order so economic investment can happen.

Instead New Yorkers are forced to fend for themselves while de Blasio chases press plaudits.

However, he’s catching all the wrong headlines right now as his city is quickly descending into a war zone.
