Crackdown on Lockdown-Defying Staten Island Bar

Despite the defunding craze, progressives only want to degrade the police, not abolish them. Without police, how can you have a police state like the one that is taking hold in New York? Thanks to ChiCom virus hysteria, the gloves are coming off:

The New York City Sheriff’s Department raided a Staten Island bar Tuesday night, shutting down the business and arresting one of its owners after the bar continued regular operation despite coronavirus lockdown measures.

Mac’s Public House had declared itself an “autonomous zone” and thereby not subject to Andrew Cuomo’s arbitrary coronavirus decrees. As we saw in Seattle, when hooligans occupy property that does not belong to them in the name of leftist ideology, authorities leave them to it for weeks on end. Business owners trying to make a living are treated differently.

The bar is located inside an “orange zone,” which, under the health guidelines, means that it is limited to offering outdoor dining and takeout and delivery services only.

Outdoor dining in New York City in December is not going to keep many businesses afloat.

When Danny Presti, who co-owns the establishment with Keith McAlarney, wouldn’t cooperate, he was taken away in handcuffs.

Too bad they didn’t think to spray the window with Black Lives Matter graffiti and bring in a statue of George Washington to smash. Orders would have come down to leave them alone.

The bar had already been subjected to thousands of dollars in fines and had its state liquor license revoked in the days prior.

Authoritarianism doesn’t work unless nails that stand up get hammered down.

Mac’s had been attempting to skirt lockdown restrictions and circumvent their licenses being revoked by offering food and beverages for free while asking patrons for donations.

It’s hard to get off on a technicality when the crime is not so much selling food and drink as it is the owners’ defiant attitude.

Greg Kelly provides a platform to Staten Island’s COVID criminals:

They couldn’t find the manpower to keep Black Lives Matter riots from getting out of hand, but the authorities sure have Mac’s Public House under control.

Andrew Cuomo Puts Screws to Police

Black Lives Matter riots don’t produce smoldering ruins of police stations like they did a few months ago, but the War on Cops continues, driven by pandering leftist politicians like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:

Cuomo on Sunday said he is looking at closing a loophole that could allow a cop accused of misconduct in one police department to get a new job at a different department.

These days, you don’t have to look far to find leftist hooligans eager to make accusations of misconduct.

The governor, in a conference call with reporters, cited a report from the Times Union about an ex-cop in East Greenbush who was allowed to keep his law enforcement certification — even after being accused [of] making inappropriate sexual advances toward women he met while on-duty.

Matthew C. Wyld was suspended and then resigned, though he was never served with a formal notice of discipline. He applied for other law enforcement jobs, but didn’t get one and currently is “not in the police field.”

But this probably isn’t about Wyld. More likely, it is about pandering to the leftist mob as New York City degenerates into a violent hellscape.

If Democrats continue making life miserable for police, soon the only people who will to take the job will be goons like Dim from A Clockwork Orange. This will help prop up the liberal narrative, by resulting in incidents of police violence that will be blamed on “systemic racism.”

Andrew Cuomo From the Moonbat Point of View

New York Governor and COVID-19 tyrant Andrew Cuomo likely killed thousands by forcing nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients (while more appropriate facilities were available elsewhere). Yet he has been praised by the liberal establishment media for his ham-fisted handling of the virus. He was even awarded an Emmy for his ChiCom virus press briefings.

If you find this incomprehensible, it could be because you don’t see Cuomo from the progressive point of view. This video should help:

It must have come as a big relief to Randy Rainbow when Fredo got over his bout with Kung-Flu and stopped pretending to be cooped up in the basement.

Giant Rats Overwhelm New York City

Rats continue to emblematize New York City’s moonbattery-induced decline. From the New York Post:

Rats as big as bunnies are roaming the streets in broad daylight, nesting in trees and chewing through car engine wires that can cost thousands to fix. … Complaints about rats to the 311 hotline have totaled 12,632 so far this year, a third more than the 9,042 for all of 2019.

Note to New Yorkers: if you don’t want your city overrun with rats, stop voting them into office.

Shoddy street cleaning, failure to collect trash, outdoor dining compelled by coronavirus restrictions, and hordes of the homeless are blamed for the rat plague. All are problems that could be mitigated or resolved completely by voting more sensibly. However, most of the sensible people have already left, driven out by left-wing radicalism and mismanagement.

Cuomo Reveals What Frightens a Tyrant

Even the most ferocious tyrants know what it’s like to be afraid. Aggressively authoritarian New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who killed thousands of elderly people by forcing nursing homes to accept COVID patients, is a case in point. Here’s what scares him:

Cuomo ripped sheriffs in the state who’ve recently declared they won’t be enforcing Cuomo’s COVID-19 restrictions over Thanksgiving — particularly the one that bans gatherings of more than 10 people.

Cuomo, horrified that sheriffs would refuse to enforce his absurd decree…

…said such an attitude “is, frankly, frightening to me as an individual, frightening to democracy.”

That is, Cuomo is scared of resistance.

His next sentence is rich, coming from an arrogantly anti-Constitutional autocrat, who has tried to drive the NRA out of business for defending the Second Amendment and who opposes the First Amendment right to free practice of religion. Cuomo continues:

“It’s arrogant, and it violates your constitutional duty.”

On the contrary, refusal by LEOs to enforce unconstitutional decrees may allow the Second Amendment to survive a Biden Administration. If only Big Tech had American principles too, the First Amendment might also be saved from the coming repression.

Megyn Kelly Pulls Kids Out of Antiwhite New York City Schools

Megyn Kelly is not exactly a right-winger. But she would have to be a barking moonbat to subject her children to New York City schools. That’s why she and her husband are pulling them out to spare them from having their self-images deformed by toxic “racial justice” indoctrination:

“It’s out of control on so many levels, and after years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city. We pulled our boys from their school and our daughter is going to be leaving hers soon, too,” Kelly said. “The schools have always been far-left, which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care. Most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine. I come from Democrats as a family.”

Kelly says she leans “center-left” on some issues and is “not offended” by liberal ideology. But the people running schools in places like NYC have left center-left far behind. It isn’t left versus right anymore. It’s all the way left versus anyone unwilling to submit to lunacy.

She caught a glimpse of what must go on in the classroom:

“This summer in the wake of George Floyd, they circulated amongst the diversity group – which includes white parents like us, there are people who want to be allies and stay attuned to what we can do – an article, and afterward they recirculated it and wanted every member of the faculty to read it.”

Written by Nahliah Webber, Executive Director of the Orleans Public Education Network, the letter appears to be based on a deranged blog post Webber published on Education Post. It denounces white children as racist.

From the letter:

They gleefully soak in their whitewashed history that downplays the holocaust of indigenous native peoples and Africans in the Americas. They happily believe their all-white spaces exist as a matter of personal effort and willingly use violence against black bodies to keep those spaces white.

As black bodies drop like flies around us by violence at white hands, how can we in any of our minds conclude that whites are alright?

Note that this educator cannot even spell “all right.” But education isn’t about the three R’s anymore. It is about instilling ideology.

The language soon deteriorates further:

This time if you really want to make a difference in black lives — and not have to protest this sh[**] again — go reform white kids. Because that’s where the problem is — with white children being raised from infancy to violate black bodies with no remorse or accountability.

Only relentless brainwashing to convince white children how evil they are can remediate the situation.

Escaping from New York may not spare Kelly’s kids from malevolent brainwashing. Leftists have controlled the schools nationwide for decades. How else do you explain the hundreds upon hundreds of race riots that occurred this summer, many of them featuring white rioters raging against whiteness?

Peaceful Protester Devina Singh and Jerrold Nadler

How much distance separates the vicious, hebephrenic, ultra-left maniacs who have rioted many hundreds of times this year from the top echelons of the Democratic Party? It can be measured in micrometers, to judge by Devina Singh, whom readers will recall as the New York City moonbat who was arrested Wednesday night for spitting in the face of a police officer during a pandemic:

As predicted, she didn’t stay in custody for long. Fox News has more information on her:

Singh said she’d just been released from court following her arrest during a tumultuous night of anti-cop demonstrations by left-wing radicals chanting, “Burn the precinct to the ground!” …

Singh has been collared before for allegedly resisting arrest at a September protest in Manhattan, police said. The next month, she was busted on unlawful assembly charges at a demonstration in Brooklyn.

Getting arrested is fun when you know cops have to be extra gentle and the legal system will immediately turn you loose to do it again.

Barks Devina,

“Take it to the streets and f–k the police; no justice, no peace.”

What kind of background produces such a sociopath?

Her Facebook profile says she attended New York University and studied global public health and social work and worked as an intern for Congressman Jerrold Nadler for five months from 2018 to 2019.

Jerrold Nadler was a key figure in Trump’s groundless impeachment, an attempted coup that undermined the separation of powers that is key to our system of government. Nadler denies the existence of Antifa violence.

If leftists prevail in their bid to appropriate the White House, Devina Singh will personify our rulers.

Moonbat Spits on Cop, Gets Busted

That’s more like it. When a mostly peaceful protester spits on a cop, she is immediately arrested, as is right and proper. Sorry about the liberal language:

Now for the bad news. This happened in leftist-ruled New York, so she will be released immediately so that she can do it again. Otherwise, she would not have done it in the first place.

What Would NYC Moonbats Do for an Electoral Catastrophe?

We know Trump supporters are motivated. In the video below, Ami Horowitz investigates the opposition.

Young New York City moonbats would do most anything to make the country veer hard left today onto the path Venezuela took when it elected Hugo Chavez and their own declining city took when it elected Bill de Blasio. But would they give up movies for a year? Sex for 4 years? Would they let a puppy drown? Take electricity to their private parts? Punch their own mother in the face?

That last question is the easiest for them:

New Yorker Falls Through Sinkhole Into Pit of Rats

If one story perfectly symbolizes New York City’s decline into moonbattery under leftist misrule, this could be it.

[Leonard] Shoulders was waiting for a bus on 3rd Avenue in the Bronx on Saturday across from Saint Barnabas Hospital at the moment the sidewalk caved in.

According to his mother, Cindy White,

“He was just standing and the sidewalk just — It was like a suction. Like a sinkhole. He just went down.”

He fell almost a dozen feet, concrete debris raining down on his head. He broke and arm and a leg. Then came the horror.

“He was like, ‘Ma, the rats down there were ridiculous.’ He was like, ‘they were like so big.’ He was scared to yell out because he thought they were gonna go in his mouth,” she said.

Comrade Bill de Blasio welcomes you to New York.

High-End Stores Looted on Ongoing Basis

George Floyd’s likely fentanyl overdose served as a pretext for lawlessness that has become the new normal in localities run by leftists. In New York City, tony stores are targeted on a regular basis by those greedy for what Black Lives Matter activists call “reparations.”

From the New York Post:

Bands of shoplifters are terrorizing Soho’s high-end boutiques, lifting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of designer merchandise, and in some cases, threatening security guards to keep quiet — or be labeled racist, The Post has learned.

The disturbing pattern began in late May during the riots that rocked the city in the wake of the George Floyd police custody death. High-end Celine was looted of $1.5 million in merchandise then, and the blatant thievery continues “every week” in ritzy stores such as Prada, Moncler, Dior and Balenciaga, one plugged-in local said.

The police have been largely defunded and sidelined by Bill de Blasio. Not that everyone has the guts to call the police anyway. That could get you branded as a “racist.”

“If they [store personnel] stop them and say anything in the store before they’ve left the building then it often gets turned into a racial accusation,” the source said.

“Racists” are targeted by social media campaigns. Their businesses might be firebombed in the name of racial justice. Yelp is happy to help out with this.

NYPD Sgt. Joseph Imperatrice, founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC, told The Post that investigators are aware that “mobs of young, transient groups” have “bulldozed through aisles grabbing as much as their arms can hold.”

The era of Black Lives Matter is a golden age for criminals.

In the latest incident, thieves twice plundered Moncler on Prince Street — which sells down jackets for nearly $2,000…

In the first incident, two individuals grabbed nearly two dozen down jackets… A few hours later, at 6 p.m., thieves snatched “more than $50,000” in merchandise and sped off in a white Jaguar and a black Audi…

According to the MSM’s narrative, these people are impoverished as a result of systemic racism.

In the near future, all stores will resemble ghetto liquor stores, with the goods secured behind bulletproof glass. A society that reveres criminals like George Floyd, Jacob Blake, et al can expect no better.

Rick Moranis: Walking While White on Upper West Side

If you want to sum up New York City in the age of Black Lives Matter and Bill de Blasio in one short video, here it is:

That is one way you can expect BLM/MSM ideology to be applied in a city where law and order have been marginalized.

The guy who got sucker-punched is actor Rick Moranis:

Moranis, 67, was walking south on Central Park West near West 70th Street — steps from his apartment building — around 7:30 a.m. Thursday when a stranger suddenly slugged him, knocking him to the ground, according to police and a surveillance clip.

Moranis is best known for the movie Honey I Shrunk the Kids

NY AG Letitia James Effectively Legalizes Minor Crimes

Joe Biden won’t say who he would appoint to the Supreme Court, but New York Attorney General Letitia James is considered to be on the short list. She meets all three of the requirements: (1) black, (2) female, and (3) left-wing. To get an idea of how terrifying this is, and of why people have been leaving New York in droves as it degenerates into anarchy, consider that James has exploited the police shooting of Allan Feliz to effectively legalize minor crimes.

When Feliz was pulled over by Officer Jonathan Rivera last October, he produced his brother’s driver’s license instead of his own. As in other events exploited by leftists to advance their agenda, the situation escalated and Feliz ended up dead.

Via Hot Air:

Using that incident as an example, the AG is now recommending that officers no longer conduct arrests of individuals during traffic stops if they have outstanding warrants for a variety of classes of minor offenses. These would include bench warrants for failing to appear in court or more minor, public nuisance offenses.

As with Michael Brown, George Floyd, Jacob Blake, Breonna Taylor, et al., Feliz requires airbrushing to qualify for sainthood, and the actual events surrounding his demise must be altered or suppressed in the interests of the racist cops narrative.

First of all Seargent Rivera is Hispanic himself. And Feliz wasn’t some innocent victim of circumstances. The reason he gave over his brother’s ID instead of his own was that he was on parole from convictions on a variety of federal offenses at the time. He also had quantities of both cocaine and methamphetamines in the vehicle…

Feliz also didn’t comply with the officer’s instructions. Instead, he continually attempted to drive the vehicle away. He was only shot after nearly running over Rivera’s partner.

Ignoring outstanding warrants during traffic stops equates to not issuing warrants at all. Police do not have time to chase down petty criminals with the city going to hell all around them.

This represents the broken windows policy in reverse. Instead of preventing big crimes by cracking down on small ones, which is the strategy Rudy Giuliani used to make New York City livable, leftists are making minor crime effectively legal.

New Yorkers at least have the option of getting the hell out in favor of states not run by leftists who side with criminals against society. When these maniacs secure control of the federal government, escaping the chaos will not be so easy.
