There are all sorts of trends making waves in leftist circles. One of the hottest is cozying up to violent jagweeds in the hope of scoring brownie points for “inclusiveness” (see ISIS Claims Credit for Manchester Attack. Leftists Worry About… Islamophobia). Just ask New York City’s Mayor, Bill de Blasio. Billiam is doing his virtue-signaling peers proud. He’s set to march in a parade honoring a known terrorist. Not kidding…
Three cheers for Police Commissioner James O’Neill for standing tall where New York’s political leaders have waffled by announcing he won’t march in next month’s Puerto Rican Day Parade.
The reason: Guest of honor Oscar López Rivera, hailed by organizers as a “national freedom hero,” is a “terrorist,” the commisioner says. Added O’Neill: “I cannot support a man who is a co-founder of an organization that engaged in over 120 bombings.”
That hasn’t stopped Mayor de Blasio, who plans on marching, or Gov. Cuomo, who says he’s “inclined” to march but is still thinking it over.
Organizers claim honoring López Rivera will “create awareness on issues.”
The only awareness that’s being created by honoring this douchenozzle is an awareness that leftists are out of their gourds for kowtowing to terrorists. Methinks a straitjacket and an extended holiday at Bellevue would do de Blasio well.
And the list of law-enforcement groups refusing to participate is growing longer by the day. It now includes the NYPD Hispanic Society, the Gay Officers Action League and the Rafael Ramos Foundation, named for a slain police officer.
Even the Hispanics and the fancy lads think Bill’s a nutbar. Both groups lean solidly left. There are many things that divide Americans. Having a strong dislike of terror-doing asshats isn’t one of them. De Blasio likely assumed the gesture would score popularity points. Um… no.
The left seems to get googly-eyed with radical scum-buckets, like Castro and Chavez. If pantywaist leftists wish to align themselves with those crapweasels there’s a simple solution: exit the country. We can help.
This is where the left stands, and it ain’t on our side. If people like de Blasio wish to pal around with terrorists, that’s fine and dandy. Just don’t come whining to the rest of us on the next election day when you guys are getting tossed out of office on your lumpy keisters…
