NY Mayor Bill De Blasio has double trouble.
He made plenty of news in the last couple of days. Not in the “good news” category, but in the “vomit-inducing news” category.
He’s got double trouble. Citizens are outraged as he’s honoring a terrorist. If that weren’t bad enough, one of his staffers was arrested on child pornography charges.
1) De Blasio honors terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera.
The Democratic Mayor gave his blessings for FALN leader Oscar Lopez Rivera to marshall New York City’s Puerto Rican Day parade.
It’s not like de Blasio couldn’t have known who the guy is.
For starters , Rivera is the leader of the the FALN, which is the acronym for FuArmadas de Liberación Nacional which translates to the “Armed Forces of National Liberation.” It is listed in the terrorist watch lists. Reports vary, but at the bare minimum the FALN was responsible for 70 bombings in the US that took the lives of 5 people and injured dozens more.
Rivera had been convicted of a seditious conspiracy to overthrow the US government, arms trafficking, and trying to escape from prison.
Fox reported that for whatever reason (koff koff) “In 1999, on the eve of Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate run in New York, her husband, President Clinton, commuted the sentences of 16 imprisoned FALN members. But Lopez Rivera reportedly turned the offer down, refusing to be released unless all of his comrades were released from prison.”
Obama shared the Clintons’ sympathies for the traitorous terrorist.
Traitors gotta stick together. Obama betrayed Rivera’s victims and sparked outrage when he commuted the terrorist’s sentence.
Fox News reported last January,
“I’m disgusted by what the president did. It’s a travesty,” said Joe Connor, whose father was killed in an infamous FALN terrorist bombing in Manhattan.
“The enemies of our country are being rewarded, and being treated as if they are heroes. What we hear is that Oscar Lopez Rivera did not get to know his family. Well, neither did my father. The victims and the Americans get pushed aside.”
“I went to his parole hearing in 2011,” said Connor. “We were looking for some sort of reconciliation, some sort of admission, some sort of atonement. We didn’t get any of that. He is a sworn terrorist, and for the president to release a sworn terrorist for political reasons, or whatever reason, is a disgrace.”
It’s all too typical that Obama, the Clintons, celebrities-and de Blasio- would view this traitor and murderer as a hero and turn their backs on American victims.
Retired detective Anthony Senft who lost his eye and both eardrums during an FALN attack is rightfully outraged.
Fox News Insider reports,
“[Retired detective Anthony Senft ]said that Mark-Viverito and de Blasio are simply “looking for votes” from a fringe element of the Puerto Rican community.
“[Allowing] a man who was a terrorist… to be paraded down Fifth Avenue as a hero makes me absolutely sick,” Senft said.
“You should be ashamed of yourself,” Senft said, addressing de Blasio.
In the 1980s, Lopez Rivera bombed NYPD headquarters, the Jacob Javits federal building and Colonial-era Fraunce’s Tavern in Lower Manhattan.”
The world is upside down. The Left celebrates and exalts criminals and terrorists. Disgusting, Not the party of JFK. Instead, they’ve returned to their KKK roots.
2) One of de Blasio’s staffers was arrested on child pornography charges.
This is beyond sickening. A de Blasio staffer was caught in possession of child pornography–with images that involved infants.
The Washington Times reports,
“Jacob Schwartz, a computer programmer analyst in the city Department of Design and Construction, turned himself in to the city’s computer-crimes investigators in Manhattan’s 13th Precinct on Thursday morning. He is charged with two felonies: promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child under 16.
The 29-year-old, who is out on $7,000 bail, allegedly had several thousand images and videos of child porn, sources told the Post on Friday.
Some photos reportedly included children younger than 6 months old.”
The Luciferian Left shares a sick obsession with child pornography.
The Last Straw.
Maybe these scandals will be the straw to break the back of his long list of scandals.
New York needs to rethink the “leadership” of this Globalist Democrat.
He’s pushing for NYC to retain Sanctuary City Status and stubbornly refuses to enforce immigration laws. He has criticized President Trump’s travel ban and compared Syrian “refugees” to Jews escaping the Nazis. Days after a NY terror bombing linked to Ahmed KhanRahami he called for more Muslim “refugees” to move to NYC.
It would be easy enough to call him out on honoring a terrorist.
What’s trickier is to spin the disgusting crimes of his staffer as a reflection of his own leadership and associates. But since most headlines read,”One of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Staffers Arrested on Child Pornography Charges…” that mission may already be accomplished.
The Democrat won his last mayoral bid in spite of very low approval ratings. But if Republicans can get their act together and promote and properly fund a decent candidate, these two scandals might be the deciding factor for New Yorkers to remove de Blasio in November.
