President Trump blasted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for cutting the budget of his police department while simultaneously having a Black Lives Matter mural painted along Fifth Avenue.

“NYC is cutting Police [budget] by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the [Mayor] is going to paint a big, expensive yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury avenue,” the President objected.

“Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates [and] disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street,” he continued. “Spend this money fighting crime instead!”

That is one thing Black Lives Matter and de Blasio have in common – their hatred of the police.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Purely Political

De Blasio, who some would say is widely despised by the men and women in blue, having turned their backs on him on multiple occasions, fired back on Twitter calling the President a racist.

He even called for reparations, further cementing his desire to shift funds from law enforcement to a movement behind riots, arsons, and assaults in his own city.

“Black people BUILT 5th Ave and so much of this nation,” he wrote. “Your ‘luxury’ came from THEIR labor, for which they have never been justly compensated.”

“We are honoring them,” de Blasio added. “The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.”

But this isn’t why New York is honoring BLM at all. In an interview on MSNBC, de Blasio admitted the entire sham was political in nature.

“[Trump] will get a message that he still doesn’t understand,” he insisted. “Maybe seeing it outside his doorstep will help him get the point.”

So … you’re literally painting a giant eyesore on the streets for a group who helped bring chaos to your city just to make a point to one man? Seems reasonable.

Hypocrite

Funny he should mention compensation for blacks. In the very next tweet, De Blasio states that the NYPD “are now a majority people of color.”

De Blasio and the New York City Council agreed to cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s budget, even as crime and shootings have increased dramatically.

He’s taking funds away from ‘people of color’ whose job it is to protect ‘people of color.’

Is there any greater microcosm of liberalism than moving money from something of substance for a police force comprised mostly of minorities and shifting it to a useless, frivolous symbol meant to make everybody feel happy inside?
