Bank Robber Released, Robs Another Bank the Next Day

Democrats screech that America has excessive incarceration rates and that this is racist. Their solution: let criminals out of jail, in the name of Covid, overcrowding, bail reform, or simply sheer moonbattery. New York City demonstrates how this works in practice:

An alleged thief was collared shortly after sticking up a Manhattan bank on Thursday — just one day after he was cut loose in an earlier bank heist, The Post has learned.

Chi Ngo is accused of pulling off the robberies at two separate Chase Banks in as many days, according to sources and court documents.

After stealing $2,300 from a Chase branch on Canal Street, Ngo was charged with third-degree robbery and possession of a weapon and burglar’s tools. But that was no reason not to let him loose on “supervised release.”

Good thing the release was supervised. Otherwise, he might have really gotten up to trouble.

You can see why the lavishly establishment-backed Black Lives Matter wants to abolish police and prisons. What’s the point of arresting people and locking them up if they are just going to be set free again to resume their criminal activities? If we let criminals run riot, they will soon steal everything worth having, and we won’t have to worry about theft anymore.

Police Banned From NYC Gay Pride Parade

In New York City, police are regarded as an undesirable element and have therefore been banned from participating in an annual parade celebrating homosexuality.

New York City Pride has told the New York Police Department’s Gay Officers Action League it is not welcome in the parade…

GOAL was formed in 1982 after NYPD Sgt. Charles Cochrane outed himself delivering testimony on anti-gay discrimination legislation pending before the City Council. The progressive organization paved the way for similar groups across the country.

Yesterday’s progressive pioneer is today’s canceled thought criminal, as the Overton window shifts into dimensions of leftism hitherto unimagined. Not even publicly embracing the gay lifestyle compensates for the sin of helping to maintain public order, because according to liberal dogma, local police are inherently racist.

Police are banned from the parade until at least 2025. NYC Pride says it will “take steps to keep police officers at least one city block away from event perimeter areas where possible” because it wants “to create safer spaces for the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities at a time when violence against marginalized groups, specifically BIPOC and trans communities, has continued to escalate.”

The skyrocketing crime rate resulting from the Black Lives Matter–inspired movement to defund or otherwise marginalize the police has demonstrated that everyone is safer when there are no police around — or at least, that is the lesson leftists seem to have drawn from it.

At least we will be spared the appalling spectacle of officers publicly twerking and simulating gay sex while in uniform.

A lot of good it did the NYPD to apologize for raiding the Stonewall Inn in 1969, which set off the infamous riots. Apologizing to moonbats only signals weakness, which invites further bullying and contempt. There is no grace among the politically correct.

It used to be the belligerently ostentatious gays who got banned from parades. They didn’t like it. But now that they have the whip hand, exclusion and intolerance are salutary.

Bill de Blasio Persuades New Yorkers Not to Get Vaccinated

I washed my hands of baseball following the contemptible kneeling to rioting Marxists last year, but there is one player I still admire. But then, Aubrey Huff doesn’t play anymore anyway. Fortunately, he still tweets:

Watching a communist talk with his mouth full is apparently intended to inspire people to get vaccinated.

Asian Attacked With Hammer on NYC Sidewalk

According to the media narrative, white supremacists are a mortal thread to Asians, because Trump said “China virus.” In reality, the threat comes from elsewhere:

Police in Manhattan are looking for a woman who attacked an Asian woman with a hammer Sunday night near Times Square.

The 31-year-old recent FIT graduate was walking with a friend to the subway when she was attacked. The pair thought it would be safer for them to go together.

No one is safe in a city run by moonbats, where lunatics run wild, the mayor paints murals in support of rioters, and the police have been marginalized.

The attacker is described as a middle-aged white guy in a MAGA cap. Just kidding:

Attacks on Asians are disproportionately from blacks. Any rise in their prevalence is likely due to the decay of law & order that has resulted from liberal policy in the Age of Black Lives Matter. But that’s not how they spin it on the news.

Outdoor Dining in New York City

The depravity of moonbat ideology is impossible for a sane mind to grasp. Watch as a white guy leads the mob in an obscenity-laced chant demanding that whites leave New York City:

If the racial scapegoating and intolerance is this bad while whites are still a majority, imagine what it will be like when Democrats achieve the majority minority objective that they openly long for and that is the purpose of their immigration and welfare policy.

New York Provides $15,600 Cash to Illegal Aliens

For some, targeted healthcare does not confer sufficient privilege. They prefer direct cash payments of other people’s money:

The Democrat-controlled New York legislature has passed a budget deal that includes a $2.1 billion fund for illegal immigrants – including a one-time, $15,600 payment for those who lost their job during the pandemic.

Those jobs had already been lost to the American citizens who might have held them.

The Empire States pushes the envelope even further than California:

California has a $75 million cash assistance proposal for illegal immigrants.

The kind of money they are throwing around just at the state level could buy serious immigration enforcement, thereby alleviating crime and unemployment and lessening the burden on social services. But leftists have other priorities.

The state Senate’s top Republican, Rob Ortt, said, “Democrats are raising taxes and using your federal stimulus dollars to enact a radical agenda rather than helping veterans, small main street businesses, teachers, and senior citizens.”

That we knew. What comes as a surprise is that there are still Republicans in New York. Ortt might want to get out of there before they start shooting escapees.

Cuomo’s $2.1 Billion Gift to Illegal Aliens and Felons

In single-party New York, a bigwig like Andrew Cuomo can only be taken down by radicals from even further left. Unsurprisingly, that’s who he is pandering to in a desperate attempt to save his skin at the expense of taxpayers:

Cuomo, along with New York State Democrats, is negotiating a $2.1 billion fund where at least 187,000 illegal aliens and 87,000 felons could receive taxpayer-funded unemployment benefits that mirror state and federal benefits.

Other Dems will appreciate the erstwhile Luv Gov taking good care of the party’s base. They may let him ride out the scandal of killing thousands of seniors by forcing their nursing homes to accept Covid patients, and even the never-ending MeToo allegations that have been piling onto him since.

The payouts are extravagantly generous. Why not? It’s taxpayers’ money, not Cuomo’s.

Illegal alien and felon recipients could receive up to $28,600 a year thanks to the taxpayer-funded benefits, according to analysts. Weekly, illegal aliens and felons could receive $500 a week. For those unemployed since March 2020, recipients could receive on average $12,600.

Plenty of American citizens who never broke the law don’t make that much by working.

Recipients, should the taxpayer-funded program be included in the state budget, could also become secure medical coverage paid for by New York’s public health insurance program.

Other American citizens who never broke the law shell out more for health insurance than they do for food.

Many violent criminals are allowed to run free in New York thanks to bail reform, just as illegal aliens run free thanks to sanctuary policy.

Crime pays under the rule of criminals like Andrew Cuomo.

New York Senate Passes Concentration Camp Bill

Tragically for leftists, the ChiCom virus is beginning to fade away. They must hurry to squeeze maximum authoritarianism out of it before it is gone. The Empire State shows the way to our freedom-free future:

The New York state senate just passed a bill that will allow government officials to apprehend and indefinitely detain people who are considered a threat to the public based on their health status.

You don’t have to be sick to get locked up. Contacts of the infected are eligible for involuntary detainment. This conveniently allows Big Government to lock up pretty much anyone on the claim that they have encountered someone alleged to carry a virus.

Assembly Bill A416 “relates to the removal of cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases who are potentially dangerous to the public health.”

From the bill (all caps screaming removed):

Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee, including, but not limited to the commissioner or the heads of local health departments, may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained. Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee…

All the governor has to do is declare a state of emergency and whole groups (e.g., Tea Party groups, if they should begin to reemerge) can be incarcerated on suspicion of carrying a virus, as can people who come in contact with members of the group.

Good thing New Yorkers can trust Andrew Cuomo not to abuse his power. Just kidding. There are people even worse than Cuomo though. The move to force him out comes from even farther on the left (e.g., ultramoonbat governor wannabe Letitia James).

Once people lose their will to fight for freedom, tyrants will quickly find a pretext to crush it.

Convicted Cop Killer Richard Rivera on Police Reform Panel

Who better to reform police in accordance with liberal preferences than a convicted cop killer? If the parody stories at the Babylon Bee aren’t outrageous enough for you, try the actual news reported at the New York Post:

He fatally shot an NYPD cop execution-style decades ago in a Queens bar — and now Richard Rivera is helping reform police in upstate New York as part of a state-mandated plan launched by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

There’s always another reason to admire the Love Gov.

The cop-killer — who murdered off-duty officer and dad-of-four Robert Walsh in 1981 — sits on a panel for Ithaca and Tompkins County as part of its “Reimagining Public Safety Collaborative.’’

What liberals mean by “public safety” is criminals run amok while law-abiding citizens hide under their beds, not even permitted to defend themselves. This is nowhere more obvious than in New York, where bail reform, hostility to police, and repressive gun control have combined to produce the public safety conditions of a jungle.

The advisory group was formed after Cuomo ordered municipalities to submit police-reform plans to the state by April 1 following George Floyd’s death.

That is, the explicit purpose was to punish the police in the name of Black Lives Matter.

Rivera’s senseless murder of the highly decorated 12-year veteran Walsh was committed during the robbery of the BVD Bar and Grill in Queens.

As the hero off-duty officer identified himself as a cop and reached for his gun to try to stop the robbery, Rivera shot him in the shoulder. Rivera then walked over to the officer as he lay helplessly wounded on the floor, pressed his gun to the cop’s head and blasted him again, authorities said.

Rivera has resumed his career as an enemy of society by serving as a left-wing activist.

De Blasio Wants Police to Scare the Politically Incorrect

Meanwhile, as New York City disintegrates into anarchy, Mayor Bill de Blasio is doing his part to exploit the racially irrelevant shootings in Atlanta by deploying speech police:

Bill de Blasio said the NYPD could visit those accused of racism or discrimination, “even if something is not a criminal case.” The exchange happened near the end of the “media availability” event when a Washington Post reporter questioned de Blasio about his response to reports of racism, specifically toward Asian Americans over the course of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The idea that “white supremacists” are targeting Asians is the liberal establishment media’s false narrative du jour. In reality, if there has been a rise in violence against Asians, it was caused not by Trump saying “China virus,” but by the collapse of law and order in the face of Black Lives Matter. That’s why most of the perpetrators are black.

Never mind reality. Let’s return to the pseudo-world fabricated by Democrat politicians with help from the media. Yaps de Blasio:

“And my message to all New Yorkers and particularly to Asian American New Yorkers at this point, is please report what you see. We need it. We need to know what’s happening. We need to know if you’ve been treated wrongly. If you’ve been a victim of discrimination, if you have been a victim of a hate crime, if you’ve been a victim of violence based on who you are, we need to know about [it] immediately.”

What if it’s not actually a crime, but just some statement that could be construed as insensitive? Call the cops anyway, says de Blasio:

“One of the things officers are trained to do is to give warnings. If someone has done something wrong, but not rising to a criminal level, it’s perfectly appropriate for an NYPD officer to talk to them to say that was not appropriate. … I assure you if an NYPD officer calls you or shows up at your door to ask about something that you did, that makes people think twice. And we need that.”

That is, we need the police to intimidate people over accusations of political incorrectness.

De Blasio boasts that his administration has been creating “a new policy to widen the definition of what would qualify as hate crimes.” It is already illegal to say “illegal alien” in New York City. Soon the cops may do more than put a scare in you if a neighbor rats you out for calling COVID-19 the China virus.

Asians make more money than whites in this country. They are systematically discriminated against through Affirmative Action. Keeping them in the Democrat cultural Marxist coalition won’t be easy. That’s why the media/Democrats reacted to the Atlanta shootings with such a hysterical barrage of lies.

Of course, authoritarians like de Blasio will also welcome any opportunity to restrict free speech.

How Bill de Blasio Is Reversing Decline of New York City

NYC Public High School Calls for White Abolitionists

The East Side Community School in New York City teaches that there are eight ways to go about being white. The least awful is to be a white abolitionist. This is accomplished by:

Changing institutions, dismantling whiteness, and not allowing whiteness to reassert itself

This is from a “tool for action” the principal sent to the parents of white students at this public high school:

If this is what they send to the parents, imagine what they are teaching the kids.

Bear in mind that in the NYY region, whites are already a minority.

An entire generation is getting brainwashed to hate white people. Letting liberals control schools is not going to end well.

With Biden’s handlers in power, government employees are to be subjected to similar propaganda.

The last time we saw this level of race hatred as a fundamental component of a ruling oligarchy’s ideology, the result was the Holocaust.

Black Lives Matter Still Wreaking Havoc in NYC

Now that the Bad Orange Man is gone, America is united and can heal, honks Biden. Or maybe the Bad Orange Man wasn’t the cause of our problems after all. Maybe obsequiously pandering to the people who really are causing them won’t make the problems go away. In New York Friday night,

About 100 protesters attended the “F*** 12” march in Midtown Manhattan.

“F*** 12” is moonbat shorthand for “F*** the police.”

Demonstrators with Black Lives Matter, which was nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize three weeks ago, burned an American flag and a pro-law enforcement thin blue line flag near the NYPD kiosk in Times Square in a supposed protest against police brutality.

If BLM doesn’t get a Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama should have to give his back. After all, he was awarded it before he had yet sown seeds of havoc with his divisive politics.

During the F12 march at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and 54th Street, someone motioned toward a man and yelled, “He’s a cop!” About a dozen protesters surrounded the man, who is actually a New York Daily News photographer. The New York Post reported that the crowd began “shoving him and beating him with their fists and other objects.” The victim, identified as Sam Costanza, suffered a broken nose, according to the New York Daily News.

The Daily Snooze is a left-wing publication; its propagandists helped create this situation. Nonetheless, it is appalling to see journalists attacked. Still more appalling is that two police officers were injured and two police vehicles damaged.

Note that Black Lives Matter sociopaths are the good guys, according to the liberal establishment. New York’s municipal government ostentatiously sides with them against the police. Corporations shower them with massive amounts of money. The Democrat Party included a video ode to them at last year’s convention. The vice president has raised funds to bail them out of jail so that they can continue to take part in riots, which she avers should not stop.

Also on Friday, social justice warriors harassed police and vandalized storefronts in Portland. If you encourage bad behavior, you get more of it.

What “healing” looks like in NYC.

Welcome Back to New York

One price of submitting to liberal rule is that it is no longer safe to go out in public, even in broad daylight. When Giuliani was mayor, New York City was famous for its safety. After years of Bill de Blasio, we read stories like this:

The New York City Police Department is seeking dozens of suspects in connection with a brutal attack on a 26-year-old male who was beaten, slashed, and disrobed.

They even stole his underwear, and as usual also his phone.

The victim is from Brooklyn, but was just exiting a bus from Atlanta.

The attack, which was caught on surveillance camera, shows hordes of people rushing to punch, push, shove, and hit the victim, who eventually ends up on the ground. While on the ground, other people in the group can be seen jumping on and stomping the victim.

Once the blood starts flowing, everybody joins in.

What do you expect in a country that glorifies criminality, and a city that has marginalized the police in the name of leftist ideology? Scenes like this are what liberals embrace when they embrace Black Lives Matter.

The victim is reported to be a gang member with 43 arrests, 17 for felonies. That he was walking around loose is a symptom of the same disease that allowed the attack to occur at 11:30 in the morning.

Presumably, there was history between at least some of the attackers and the victim. But these days, who knows? If you are walking down the street and someone doesn’t like your face, the same could happen to you.

Attackers are unlikely to be punished in a place like New York, even if they are caught — which they probably won’t be. Everyone knows that the moonbats in charge at both the city and state level are on the side of criminals, not the police. As of January 20, this is now true also at the federal level.

Behold what liberalism is turning our country into:
