New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) is upset over his administration’s having been called soft on crime by that impertinent man, Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions, after all, said that New York
continues to see gang murder after gang murder, the predictable consequence of the city’s “soft on crime” stance.
De Blasio’s response? He transferred the target of the remark to the police themselves, pretending to wonder why the AG has
insult[ed] the men and women who do this work every day, who put their lives on the line and who have achieved so much?
Never mind that this is a naked distortion. Sessions clearly laid the lackadaisical enforcement attitude on the city’s administration—which would include Da Mair (oh, wait—that’s the late Mayor Richard Daley (D). But who can tell the difference, anyway?). It’s the “men and women who do this work every day” who are the ones dangerously hampered by de Blasio’s position on law enforcement.
This is an example of why we can’t have nice things in Democrat-run cities and towns.
