New Yorkers Angrily Yelled Obscenities at Mayor de Blasio as he Walked in Columbus Day Parade

The chants “F*** Joe Biden” have added a second chorus in New York City directed at mayor Bill de Blasio. The Mayor experienced ruthless obscenities and comments directed at him during Monday’s Columbus Day Parade.

The mayor walked in the parade, passing comments such as “F**k you, you piece of s**t” which made the crowd erupt in applause. “F**k you, de Blasio. You piece of garbage” screamed another as the mayor was walking down Fifth Avenue.

“Get out of here, you piece of s**t. You’re garbage.” Suzan Miller, who attended the parade waving an Italian flag and lives in the East Village explained the crowd’s sentiment to the New York Post.

“I love my New York people. I love my blue. I’m tired of the crime. I’m tired of him dividing people. He can go to God—- hell” said Miller. Other things yelled at the mayor caught by The Post include:

“Yeah for the FDNY, boo for you,” one said.

“Can’t wait for you to leave,” jeered another at the lame-duck mayor.

“You suck,” one taunted de Blasio with their thumbs down.

The crowd did not let up when de Blasio was taking photos with Cardinal Timothy Dolan on the steps of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Archbishop Dolan defended the mayor to The Post saying, “All I can say is this: He and I have gotten along well. We talk candidly and disagree on stuff, but he’s been a gentleman. We’ve worked together. Have there been controversies? Sure.” He added, “in general, I’m grateful-very grateful- that we got along so well.”

The Post reports:

Though he is of Italian ancestry through his mother’s side, de Blasio has often not enjoyed a close relationship with the Big Apple’s Italian American community.

In 2019, the mayor was ripped when his wife, Chirlane McCray, removed Mother Frances Cabrini, America’s first canonized saint, from a list of honored women under consideration for a statue in the five boroughs.

Last year, de Blasio sparked outrage from his fellow Italian Americans when the city public school system scrapped Columbus Day, replacing it with Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

Also in 2020, de Blasio was excluded from New York’s major Columbus Day event. The head of the Columbus Citizens Foundation told The Post that the mayor was not invited to speak at the virtual event after the cancellation of the in-person occasion due to the pandemic.

“No, he wasn’t invited,” Angelo Vivolo, chairman of the foundation that hosts the annual Columbus Day Parade, told The Post at the time.
