NYC Still Stricken With Rising Violence, While Useless de Blasio Does This
(Tea Party 247) – When in doubt…do a virtue-signaling publicity stunt.
This is all the Democrats seem good for lately, as their policies cost a growing number of Americans their lives and they constantly sit on a pedestal, lecturing everyday Americans on intersectionality and the glories of socialism.
And they wonder why Trump’s base is stronger than ever.
New York City mayor and failed Democratic presidential candidate, Bill de Blasio, is one of the worst offenders.
The useless mayor has spent the course of the pandemic trying to keep New Yorkers in their homes, unless they want to riot and loot, of course, in which case they’re social justice heroes in his view.
As violence rises in his city and New York City Police officers experience more animosity and vitriol not only from the public, but from de Blasio himself, de Blasio is more concerned about trolling Trump tower with a giant mural than actually keeping his citizens safe from violence.
As Red State explains:
Never mind the shootings that continue to rage across his city. Never mind the ten people who were shot in eight separate incidents across the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan on just Tuesday and Wednesday; Painter Bill was at it again, brandishing his trusty roller and painting another Black Lives Matter mural on an NYC street.
De Blasio’s latest mural was in front of Family Court on Jamaica Avenue in Queens on Thursday.
We do this to send a message to the city and the whole country — a lot of us were there at Trump Tower and gave a message to someone (Donald Trump, of course) who really needs to get it. Now we are sending a message here in Queens and thank all those who worked so hard to bring justice and fairness. We know there is much more work to be done — and we knew when we started this that this was not an end unto itself – it’s a beginning,” AMNY quoted him as saying.
Considering this is a man who has constantly antagonized members of the NYPD as children are being shot in the street of his city, it’s chilling to think what this could be the “beginning” of.

De Blasio, in spite of the facts, has been attempting to claim that shutting down the court system for COVID is the reason shootings have surged in his anti-police city.
As the New York Post reported:
Hizzoner once again attacked the messenger Thursday rather than address a new Post article that found firearms cases are going through the criminal justice system at the same rate as last year — refuting his claims that a coronavirus-related court shutdown is most responsible for this summer’s surge in shootings.
“I have not seen The Post article and I don’t always get accuracy from that publication,” de Blasio sniffed during a virtual City Hall press briefing when asked about the damning piece by a Wall Street Journal reporter.
In December 2019, there were 2,285 open gun cases in Gotham with 13 percent of suspects awaiting trial, according to the Post analysis based on NYPD and court data. In July 2020, the courts had 2,181 open firearms cases and 10 percent in lockup — or 104 fewer pending gun cases, the data shows.
There were also more gun and murder arraignments from April to June compared to October through December last year, with 819 over the three-month period this year compared to 642 last year, court data shows.
What is de Blasio even doing? He may have paint on his hands…but he has blood on them too.
