WHEN the citizens of NYC (incidentally, this blogger’s birthplace, hometown and general address of countless business/personal connections, prior to moving to Israel) elected Bill de Blasio, they effectively handed over the keys to the “Big Apple” to a commissar. Unfathomable.
CLEARLY, many die-hard leftists wanted this outcome and the city is overrun with said twisted anti-liberty pygmies. But just as surely, a preponderance of voters had little idea about their new mayor’s real proclivities, not having bothered to conduct their own (limited) due diligence. Unconscionably, they fell for his “folksy” presentation; a “man of the (working class) people” and the antithesis to Bloomberg. Granted, the ex Mayor is a Wall Street magnate. Yes, this blogger finds him detestable too, but for different reasons. Be that as it may, it doesn’t obviate the typical leftist-driven class/racial warfare claptrap which invariably works, like a guilt charm, on many citizens. Hmm.
FOR the record, Bill de Blasio has a strong affinity for terrorist guerrillas, you know, akin to the PLO/PA/Fatah/Hamas (and so on) murderous crew.
AS a matter of historical truth – know thy history well – Arafat’s murderous terror apparatus schooled at various Soviet addresses, but they also set up their lairs within Latin America (at the tri-border region, like Hezbollah), the same guerrilla “playgrounds” which de Blasio “played” in!
” PLO’S GROWING LATIN AMERICAN BASE INTRODUCTION At one time, the Monroe Doctrine shielded Latin America from interference by nations outside the Western Hemisphere. In recent decades, however, the Doctrine has been violated so repeat- edly that in effect it has been repealed. The Soviet Union has established a garrison in Cuba, while Eastern bloc states have joined Moscow in creating a base of ope rations in Nicaragua and Grenada.
Yet another external force is escalating its interference in this Hemisphere–the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization. The PLO works closely with Nicaragua’s radical Sandinista regime and is helping those who are t rying to overthrow El Salvador’s democratically elected government. At camps in Cuba and the Middle East, the PLO trains cadres of terrorists, which head back to Latin America to undermine established regimes. While the PLO is not the cause of Latin Ameri ca’s most basic problems, it is exploiting them.
In turn, the PLO increasingly uses its growing Latin American base to reinforce its international terrorist campaign against the United States and Israel FORGING PLO-CUBAN-SOVIET LINKS Since its establishmen t by the Arab League in 1964, the PLO has grown from an irredentist militia into what has been described as IIa multinational business corporation, with an amalgam of terrorism and diplomacy as its end product…..
CONSEQUENTIALLY, familiarize yourselves with the CV of NYC’s mayor. As a result, the rest of his anti-American activities will flow, and they emanate from years of backing the worst of the worst banditos!
He has been even more effusive about the Sandinistas, the violent revolutionaries in Nicaragua who overthrew the Somoza regime in 1979 and installed a socialist government that ruled until 1990. Mr. de Blasio told the New York Times recently that the Sandinistas showed a “youthful energy and idealism mixed with a human ability and practicality that was really inspirational.” In the same article, one unrepentant Sandinista activist complained about some Sandinista supporters who later dropped their support for the cause. “Bill wasn’t like that,” she said.
HIS dangerous associations become even more revealing….
To cite just once source, the Russian-born scholar, Dr. Jamie Glazov, who came to America as a child when the KGB forced him and his pro-democracy, dissident parents into exile, is among those who beg to differ. Glazov wrote:
The Sandinistas quickly distinguished themselves as one of the worst human rights abusers in Latin America, carrying out approximately 8,000 political executions within three years of the revolution. The number of “anti-revolutionary” Nicaraguans who disappeared while in Sandinista hands numbered in the thousands. By 1983, the number of political prisoners inside the new Marxist regime’s jails was estimated at 20,000. This was the highest number of political prisoners in any nation in the hemisphere — except, of course, in Castro’s Cuba. By 1986, a vicious and violent Sandinista “resettlement program” forced some 200,000 Nicaraguans into 145 “settlements” throughout the country. This monstrous social engineering program entailed the designation of “free-fire” zones in which Sandinista government troops shot and killed any peasant of their choosing.
Not long after the Times exposé, the New York Post published a column reminding New Yorkers of the Sandinistas’ ugly anti-Semitism — another undeniable truth. That was too much for the old “Sandalistas” (the sandal-wearing Sandinista fellow travelers who haunt the halls of American academe). The Nicaragua Network, of which de Blasio was once a leading member, issued a press release warning its faithful followers that the “New York Post resurrects lies about Nicaraguan revolution!” The Nicaragua Network assured the faithful that the information about Sandinista anti-Semitism were (naturally) just a bunch of CIA fabrications, and urged them to “Send letters to the editor!”
That battle cry was sounded. Sandalistas, unite!
Fortunately, some of those who know better are speaking up. Leading the charge is the former leftist-turned-conservative and Cold War scholar Ronald Radosh. “In the wake of a short Post article noting that Bill de Blasio ignored (at best) the anti-Semitism of the rulers of Nicaragua during his 1988 visit there,” Radosh wrote, “his supporters have insisted the Sandinista junta wasn’t anti-Semitic. In fact, the record is clear — and ugly.” Radosh also notes that “The official Sandinista newspaper, Barricada, ran an editorial in January 1990 in which it attributed distrust of their country by the ‘Yankee bureaucracy’ to the ‘traditional “Jew-style” with which the U.S. Congress manages the taxes of the taxpayers.’”
READERS, you get the picture, but back to the NYPD and the infected PC police…
STILL, if anyone doubts whether or not this blogger is familiar with the NYPD – understanding full well the influence the mayor’s office has over its policies – reconsider your calculus. Post haste. The counter-terror domain too.
WITHIN this context, the commie-in-residence disbanded the NYPD’s (conceived via previous NYPD Commissioner Kelly, the best Commish, bar none) premier surveillance program. It focused on Islamic terror and headed to its roots; inside NYC mosques! Grave error.
AND anyone who opines that said spying was unnecessary, they haven’t a clue as to what they are babbling, as they egregiously leave Islamists free to plot within their mosques and “community centers”. You still have doubts? Fine. But don’t argue with those whose expertise is unrivaled – and have no political agenda – but just tell the unvarnished Islamic jihadi truth.
SIMILARLY, let’s meander over to just ONE – out of countless – jacked-up jihadi mosque in Brooklyn (this blogger knows what’s what), which is very much in dire need of surveillance – and then some:
AS a native New Yorker (more than familiar with most of the ‘hoods), during an investigation into the various tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia, back in 2007 – before making aliyah/immigrating to Israel – this blogger went to visit one of the most dangerous mosques in America in Brooklyn, NY. Accompanied by someone who knew his way around said delicate environs (and with the “blessing” of my beloved late husband, Frank, z”l, to said Sunday outing, though not without some choice words of caution), we came, we saw, we left . Let’s just leave said escort out of this discussion.
AGAIN, let there be no doubt….
BUT, as a specific poisonous fruit (a mere foretaste) to the NYPD’s Islamic penetration, under comrade de Blasio, the poohbahs decreed:
A plan to honor a Harlem cop killed by Nation of Islam radicals is drowning under a flood of racial tensions created more than four decades ago, but no one wants to throw it a lifeline — not even the NYPD’s new top cop.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is distancing himself from the controversial push to get the street in front of the 28th Precinct renamed in honor of Officer Phillip Cardillo, who was shot and killed inside a mosque run by Louis Farrakhan in 1972 — noting that the community should make the final decision.
“The Police Commissioner always welcomes the honoring and memorializing of fallen NYPD officers,” Deputy Commissioner Stephen Davis, the NYPD’s top spokesman, said when asked if Bratton favored the street renaming. “However, the issue of street naming is primarily a decision for the community board and other local leaders.”
Cause and effect….and MANY more to come.
IN the main, the resident of Gracie Mansion not only presides over the largest municipal budget in the U.S., but also appoints commissioners to the most important city departments, including the police. In other words, he basically rules the roost and sets the tone. Simple as that.
IN this regard, so much is at stake, even free speech is being threatened. Either it exists for all or it doesn’t. Don’t forget this.
AND no one – with a straight face – can contest that Judaism and Christianity aren’t maligned, six ways to Saturday and Sunday, within the free speech arena. Yet, the PC police can’t be found, hide nor hare, particularly in loony east coast NYC and its “sister” cities. How many readers recall countless obscene verbal/visual displays against Christianity and Judaism, but no one’s rights are silenced. And, for the record, they shouldn’t be.
NOT only that, students don’t lose their rights to free speech, just because they enter school grounds, and even the Supreme Court weighed in in the affirmative. Agreed?
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes unit is looking to identify the person who distributed anti-Muslim fliers in at least one of the Shore Haven apartment buildings near Cropsey Avenue and 21st Avenue in Bath Beach, according to Councilman Mark Treyger’s office.
The fliers were found throughout the building this week, showing a hateful message calling Muslims “the second holocaust” and claims “USA hates you”. There is what appears to be a woman in a burka inside a “No” symbol, and there is also an abundance of exclamation points.
“I am disgusted and saddened to hear of this hateful act in our community. There is absolutely no place for this type of hatred, especially in a city and borough as diverse and tolerant as ours. My thanks to the 62nd Precinct for their quick response and thorough investigation of this heinous act,” said Treyger in a statement. “I will continue to work closely with the NYPD and entire community so those responsible for spreading hate will held accountable and I urge anyone with information to come forward. It is my belief that an act of hate against one group is an act of hate against our entire community. The bottom line is there is no room in this day and age for these attacks against any member of our community.”
In the unlikely event that there was, how many seconds would it take before the ACLU’s lawyers showed up in a fire truck to defend whoever did it while the New York Times wrote an angry editorial warning that we were silencing dissent.
ON the other hand, in relation to non-officialdom – and in defiance of comrade Bill de Blasio and his newly “reformed” NYPD – the good people of NYC aren’t cowed by those who seek to impose their anti-freedom agendas. Israel is alive and well in many of its citizens’ hearts, and the video below is a heartening exhibit!
IN fact, despite the Brotherhood’s takeover in Washington by Obama Inc., and the duly demonstrative anti-American and anti-Israel mayor of NYC, the following video tells the street level tale – and it is music to these ears:
Am Yisrael Chai…עַם יִשְרָאֵל חַי…the people (nation) of Israel lives!
MOST urgently, for the west’s safety, not just for NYC, Shariah law must be eliminated! Whatever it takes…the crisis…the calling of our lives…
