In January, when he appeared at a press conference in connection with his war on NYC’s police, New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio at first seemed like any other human being, albeit a politician. He waxed poetic about the NYPD, and tried to make himself look mayoral. But as the event wore on, it became obvious—even to members of the press—that it was an illusion: de Blasio is not a normal politician: he’s possessed by an evil entity—that of Radical Leftism.
There were several signs of his possession:
PBA head Patrick Lynch was the first to voice suspicion. He was quoted by the NY Daily News saying of Mayor de Blasio, at a closed meeting: “He is not running the city of New York. He thinks he’s running a f—ing revolution.”
As you no doubt know, Mayor de Blasio caught major heat after a deranged Black man in Baltimore may have taken his “NYPD is racist” comments as an invitation to come murder cops in New York. The Mayor would now like to recast himself as a real mayor, who supports his police dept. and, therefore, public safety; maybe he thought a little rhetoric would easily blur memory of his past remarks, but, as you’ll see, that didn’t go over so well.
Others may allow the mayor the benefit of some doubt about being the direct cause of the killings, or sharing that distinction with Al Sharpton. But to me, there’s little, if any doubt. The UK’s Daily Mail reports that Ismaaiyl Brinsley, the shooter, for months had been posting photos he had taken of cops, accompanied by hostile and threatening captions.
Their uniforms are observably not those of New York cops. The Daily Mail identified one as Atlanta. But he didn’t shoot any of those cops. He opted to travel almost 200 miles, to shoot New York cops. Why? Ask de Blasio and Sharpton.
At a press conference December 22nd, the Mayor tried to neutralize his prior denunciations of the police with feigned concern for their safety, but his radicalism kept oozing out. He only convinced those who were already in his camp, like the NY Times, which later accused the NYPD of having a “snarling sense of victimhood” and “self-pity,” in an editorial written a mere nine days after the execution of two police officers. What a statement.
Ah, well: ’Twas’ ever thus, from radicals and their minions.
Others in the press were less adoring of the Mayor. Here’s an illustrative excerpt from the official transcript of the presser:
Question: Mayor, you referred to the protesters as people who are working to advance justice in society. The chants that we’re hearing at protests – “NYPD KKK” “How do you spell racist – KKK” – would you be comfortable with your young adults in your household chanting like this at the protests, and we’re hearing this [inaudible]
Mayor: No, of course not.
Question: What do you make of these specific—[inaudible] who are literally getting in cops’ faces and yelling at them “murderer”?
The Mayor testily replied, in part:
“I got calls from all over this country with admiration for the NYPD, the way it protected people’s democratic rights; I heard from so many protestors who appreciated the NYPD…”—Yeah, sure: as if they weren’t protesting against the police.
Not a peep about how the NYPD kept New York the safest big city in the Nation: ideology is all these guys care about. De Blasio’s so steeped in it, he doesn’t know how crazy that sounded, as an answer to the question posed.
We don’t know what possessed him to make these cringe-inducing remarks, either:
In full-CYA mode, he asked the press a question so pathetic only those who get all their news from NBC could buy it:
“What are you guys gonna do? Are you gonna keep dividing us?” His tone betrayed that even he knew how absurd that question was.
But he turned decidedly mama grizzly when scolding the press for cherry-picking the worst acts of demonstrators, to report on: “I don’t see reports on the many decent, good people…stop portraying them as the majority!”
Neither the Mayor nor the press has mentioned the numerous placards calling for revolution that were waving amongst those many “decent, good people.”
De Blasio’s performance shows that he’s so far left, he just can’t restrain himself from displaying to one and all his solidarity with the anti-police demonstrations, even when he’s trying to make himself look halfway normal, lest there be an outcry for his resignation.
De Blasio’s Cop-loathing Associates
His efforts to appear normal are further bedeviled by a coterie of radical, anti-police staff members. Kicy Motley was hired as director of the Mayor’s Brooklyn community affairs unit by de Blasio, after she had been outed by the NY Post for twice posting anti-police messages in social media. On August 11, 2012 she tweeted: “NYPD fatally shoot knife-wielding man in Times Square. (VIDEO) F–k. The. Police.” In early February, 2013, tweeting as @BrooklynKicy, she wrote: “There’s a part of me rooting for #Dorner. This racist, imperialist country gets the best of people sometimes. It makes some snap. #lapd.”
Another possessed soul.
She was applauding ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner, subject of the largest manhunt in LAPD history. He had issued a bizarre manifesto and a hit list of 40 names he swore payback to, for his firing, which he said was in retaliation for his report of a superior officer for brutality.
One of those on the hit list was Randal Quan, who had defended Dorner at his dismissal hearing. Dorner began with the fiendish murder of Quan’s daughter Monica, 28, and her fiance Keith Lawrence, 27. He went on to shoot Police officers Michael Crain and Andrew Tachias who were in their patrol car, stopped at a red light. Crain was killed instantly; Tachias was gravely injured. Dorner’s rampage ended nine days after it began, when authorities caught up with him at an isolated cabin. Dorner immediately opened fire on police, killing Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremiah MacKay and wounding Deputy Alex Collins.
Mayor de Blasio appointed Rachel Noerdlinger the $170,000-a-year chief of staff to First Lady Chirlane McCray on Jan. 20, 2014. Before that, she was spokeswoman for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. According to the NY Post, she’s had a long-term relationship with Hassaun McFarlan, a convicted killer, who has posted on his Facebook page wicked things like this—a remark the subject of an exorcism might growl, while strapped, thrashing, to his bed. He posted under the name Hassaun Kenneth Ackles:
Jan. 13, 2012: “The system sucks this pig should be charged with a civil rights violation always givin the pigs a pass,” he posted, He including a link to a story about a Staten Island officer’s guilty plea in a false arrest. Since the story stated the cop “will likely receive a term of 46-57 months,” Ackles’s rancor is inexplicable.
March 15, 2012: “I cant come outside without the pigs f—— with me in the hood out the hood im a magnet to police f—— with me,” McFarlan wrote on his Facebook page, according to a report by DNAinfo.
The report says he has a long criminal record, dating back to the fatal shooting of an 18-year old over a down coat, when he was 15. He was captured some months later and served several years. Three years after his parole, he served nearly four years for drug trafficking.
In November of 2013, he was arrested following an enigmatic incident in Edgewater, New Jersey, involving Ms. Noerdlinger’s Mercedes. A police officer was directing traffic around an accident scene, when a Black Mercedes approached, making a “loud dragging noise.” That was because the right front tire was missing.
As it neared the officer, the Mercedes veered across the centerline, into oncoming traffic. The cop shouted and signaled for the driver to stop, but the driver continued; when he was ten feet from the officer, he abruptly accelerated, forcing the cop to jump backward, to avoid being hit.
The officer positively identified McFarlan as the driver, who never stopped. He was later apprehended, by following scrape marks on the road for two miles, to a municipal parking garage across the street from where McFarlan and Noerdlinger reportedly lived together. (Source, for the above: DNAinfo)
Police Unions objected to her association with McFarlan because her position requires attending top-level meetings with police officials, as First Lady Chirlane McCray’s chief of staff—the only first lady in memory to attend such meetings.
Even Noerdlinger’s son, Khari has posted porcine tweets, reported the NY Daily News: “Rachel Noerdlinger’s son, Khari, 17, tweeted in August that ‘I’m convinced all white people are the devil’ and ‘That cop s— pissed me off Pigs always killing people.’” [Tweeting under @KharitheGod]
Ms. Noerdlinger is on extended unpaid leave, to spend more time with her son.
And then, of course, the Mayor is close to Al Sharpton, biggest cop-hater in the country, who sits in at meetings, along with the police commissioner.
Whom is de Blasio really serving?
While commiserating with the families of the slain cops, De Blasio has a strong association with local and national protests against police. In New York, he has allowed protesters to block streets and bridges, which is clearly illegal. The latest travesty is hundreds of Black protesters invading Sunday brunches in Manhattan, Sunday (January 4th).
Ironically, de Blasio is not so pleased with the legal protest of the police. Perhaps that’s because they are protesting the Mayor himself.
He appeared in a recent television pout because police turned their backs to his video eulogy again, at the second funeral of police funeral. He says the police disrespected the dead officers, a ludicrous assertion. The only person who appears to agree with it is Commissioner Bratton, who has little choice.
The cops are now taking heat for giving out over 90 percent less traffic summonses and parking tickets. Gee: maybe they’re using “prosecutorial discretion.”
Obviously, the police are protesting the lawless, cop-hating atmosphere the Mayor helped to create. This mood makes the city unsafe for police and citizens alike. Thus, de Blasio is not serving either of those groups. He is serving his own ego and the Radical leftist protesters.
A little investigation exposed his connection with the uber-left Working Families Party. The NY Post’s Bob McManus called the WFP “a laser-focused, hard-left-leaning coalition of militant private-sector unions, grasping public-sector unions.”
It was co-founded by Bertha Lewis, formerly of the now-defunct ACORN.
The WFP played a huge role in getting de Blasio elected, and has had a long association with him. The Daily Beast reported that WFP Head Dan Cantor said: “Early on, back when [de Blasio] was just on the school board, we saw him as someone we could hitch our wagon to,” Cantor said. “And he to us.”
The WFP website, in its “Take Action” section, contains a subsection called “Black Lives Matter.” At the bottom, is a link called: Find a demonstration near you. That’s the nerve center of the Ferguson National Response Network, which provides links to dozens and dozens of anti-cop demonstrations from coast to coast, and even in Hawaii.
If all this seems to you like that horrifying moment in “Devil’s Advocate,” when Charlize Theron’s character realizes she’s surrounded by demons…well, it is like that: we are up to our eyeballs in Leftists.
Nationally, it’s even more horrifying. There’s no question de Blasio contributed to nationwide cop-hatred, with public comments—on national TV, yet—like his claim that he had to school his biracial son to be real careful around police.
His remarks were evidently made by design, since Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have made the same sort of comments—right down to Obama’s “My son would look like Trayvon” remark, and Holder’s recounting to the NAACP his father’s advice, to him as a child: “…what to say and how to conduct myself if I was ever stopped or confronted in a way I thought was unwarranted.”
Such statements are all the more vile, because they don’t just slip out. They are evidently part of a coordinated national campaign to defame police and degrade respect for courts and the law: We don’t like the grand jury decision. Let’s hit the streets—everywhere—for a few months.
More proof it is coordinated: Sharpton, who is close to both Obama and de Blasio, has taken credit for the nationwide street theater.
We shall reap what they have sown: The rise of Chaos
On the morning of December 28th in Pasco County, FL someone shot at two sheriff’s deputies sitting in their cars, possibly from a moving vehicle. The officers were uninjured. The incident occurred mere hours after the burial of Tarpon Springs police Officer Charles Kondek, shot and killed only a week before, responding to a noise complaint.
In the evening of December 28th, two officers were the target of rifle fire, while driving in Los Angeles. They were not injured. One suspect is under arrest and a second is still being sought.
A flood of deranged tweets, starting immediately after the Brooklyn murder foretell even more violence to come. “Salute the shooter” is one example. Many were captured by @LilMissRightie, who commented: That was just an hour of tweets. They were going so fast no way I caught them all.”
Another tweet said: “How could you not predict cops getting shot doe [sic] They are literally killing black and brown folks for any and every reason EXECUTION style.” This is the impression gathered by many not-very-discerning people out there, from the diabolical remarks of our so-called leaders.
Is there any salvation for Mayor de Blasio? Come to think of it, no ordinary priest could exorcise his demons, because he believes in Liberation Theology, a religion that fosters Socialism. According to the New York Observer, he admitted as much, the day before he was elected: “As I’ve said many times, I was very influenced by liberation theology, by Christian liberation theology in the work I did after college and after graduate school.”
That being the case, maybe Reverend Wright—the best known practitioner of that religion—should do the exorcism.
