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

Published

on

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.

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”

Youngkin Replaces State’s Department of Equity and Inclusion with Anti-CRT Leaders

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town. Newly elected Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin just ripped the roof off of Virginia’s “woke” elite. Youngkin completely gutted the employees of the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and then rebuilt it, filling the positions with reasonable individuals.

Christopher Rufo tweeted, “Glenn Youngkin has asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign and tapped anti-critical race theory leader Angela Sailor to lead the department. In her first move, Sailor eliminated the word ‘equity’ and replaced it with ‘opportunity.”

Youngkin asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign, then put Sailor in charge to lead the department. Sailor is a former policy expert at The Heritage Foundation;. Having replaced the word ‘equity’ for ‘opportunity’ at the department, Sailor is now formally the DOI “Director of Diversity, Opportunity and Inclusion.”

Citizen Free Press reports “Youngkin also issued an executive order to refocus the DEI office, tasking Sailor and her staff to work on economic opportunity, cooperation among religious groups, promoting ‘free speech and civil discourse’ at colleges and universities, and ensuring that Virginia’s history curriculum is ‘honest, objective, and complete.”

Rufo’s tweet included a link to an article by the Richmond Times-Dispatch which reported “Former Gov. Ralph Northam created the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2019 in the aftermath of the blackface scandal that nearly ended his term. The office has been unstaffed since its former chief and her four staffers, who served at the will of the governor, were not asked to stay in their jobs.”

Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:

Youngkin’s first executive order signed Saturday seeks to ban “inherently divisive” concepts from Virginia classrooms.

In recent blog posts for The Heritage Foundation, Sailor said that lessons arguing that “America is systemically racist,” are “the textbook definition of racism.”

“No one would argue that children shouldn’t be thoroughly taught about the evils of racism, slavery, and segregation that happened in this country,” she wrote in July in a piece titled, “Schools Hiding Behind Diversity and Inclusion Rhetoric to Spew Critical Race Theory Vile.”

“But [critical race theory] ignores the hundreds of thousands of lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War to end slavery, the long struggle of the civil rights movement to end segregation and win equality, and the reality that the nation has made great progress.”
