Bill O’Reilly on the Factor could not have said it any better with regards to the riff between the NYPD officers and progressive, liberal NYC Mayor Bill de Blazio. O’Reilly blasted de Blasio’s actions and applauded the police officers turning of their back on the mayor in disrespect. O’Reilly said, “there comes a point in time where ideology becomes so damaging to society that it has to be stopped. Mayor de Blasio is as left-wing as they come.”
OReilly says de Blasio has reached the point of no return, HE MUST GO!!!
MUST WATCH VIDEO
But O’Reilly was especially angry with NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for speaking of “injustice among his own police officers” and essentially “spitting in the face of his own police department.” O’Reilly had absolutely no problem with cops turning their backs to de Blasio at a funeral for one of their own, because they had no call to directly show the mayor any respect at the service.
Police Officers Turn Their Backs on Mayor de Blasio Again … This Time at the Funeral of NYPD Officer Wenjian Liu (VIDEO)
As Yogi Berra used to say, “It’s like deja-vu, all over again.”
Despite requests and the memo sent to the NYPD by Commissioner Bratten not to turn their backs this weekend on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, today at the funeral of NYPD officer Wenjian Liu, police officers by the thousands ignored the request and once again turned their backs on NYC Mayor de Blasio.
Thousands of police turned their backs Sunday as Mayor Bill de Blasio eulogized an officer shot dead with his partner, repeating a stinging display of scorn for the mayor despite entreaties to put anger aside.
The show of disrespect came outside the funeral home where Officer Wenjian Liu was remembered as an incarnation of the American dream: a man who had emigrated from China at age 12 and devoted himself to helping others in his adopted country. The gesture among officers watching the mayor’s speech on a screen added to tensions between the mayor and rank-and-file police even as he sought to quiet them.
Sorry, but the police officers have every right to turn their backs in disrespect to the mayor. It was de Blasio who started this and continues to take the side of others against the NYPD. To get respect you must be worthy of respect and de Blasio is not. The police are supposed to be vilified by punks and the NYC mayor and in turn are supposed to just stand there and take it? Sorry police commissioner Bratton, it does not work that way and you know it.
Check out all of the police officers with their backs turned to the monitor of Mayor de Blasio speaking in the background.
Police Commissioner Bratton Tells NYPD, Don’t Turn Your Backs on Mayor de Blasio at Officer Wenjian Liu’s Funeral
SHAME ON NEW YORK CITY POLICE COMMISSIONER BILL BRATTON, HE HAS BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN A SUIT BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY THE MAYORS OFFICE …
New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has warned NYPD officers not to turn their backs on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio this Sunday at the funeral of Officer Wenjian Liu. Bratton released a memo to the NYPD pretty much chastising them for their behavior at officer Rafael Ramos’ funeral. Bratton stated in the memo that a “hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance.” The memo further went on to attack the NYPD, blaming the officers involved with taking attention away from the funeral and ruining the NYPD’s reputation.
UNREAL. Bratton best watch out or the NYPD rank and file officers will be turning their backs on him next. I could not disagree with Commissioner Bratton more. It sounds like this once cop is nothing more than bureaucratic shill for Mayor de Blasio. The NYC mayor has shown no effort to mend the riff that he created between himself and the NYPD. In fact he has made it worse by reappointing Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson to another year term on Wednesday, the same judge who let individuals out of jail without bail who made terrorist threats against police officers, one of who was a gang member.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is so worried his cops will turn their backs to his boss, Mayor Bill de Blasio, at another NYPD funeral that he sent out a memo to shame them into good behavior, sources told The Post.
“A hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance,” began the four-paragraph plea, which is being read at precinct roll calls ahead of slain Officer Wenjian Liu’s Sunday service.
Bratton won’t punish officers who choose to turn their backs to de Blasio — which was done in droves at the funeral for fallen Officer Rafael Ramos — but he pleaded with the rank and file to shelve their anger.
“I issue no mandates and I make no threats of discipline,” the memo said. “But I remind you that when you don the uniform of this department, you are bound by the tradition, honor, and decency that go with it.”
Police Commissioner Bratton should most likely shut up and allow the NYPD officer to express their First Amendment rights and freedom of expression. Other than going on strike and letting the masses fend for themselves, the only way they can dispaly the lack of support for the mayor is by doing such peaceful protests. As the NYPD are turning their backs on de Blasio, who had turned his back on law enforcement long ago by with words and deeds, the NYPD also does it in solidarity with slain officers like Officer Wenjian Liu. De Blaio and Bratton would like all to forget, but make no mistake, the NYC Mayor has blood on his hands.
De Blasio Has No Intention of Fixing Riff with NYPD … NYC Mayor Reappointed Brooklyn Judge Laura Johnson
NYC Mayor Continues to poke his finger in the eyes of the NYPD … De Blazio is a Disgrace.
It would appear that NYC Mayor Bill De Blazio plans to challenge Barack Obama for the #1 community agitator of 2015. After saying that he supports police and wants to bridge the divide that currently exists between the NYPD and the Mayors office, De Blazio reappointed Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson to another year on Wednesday. This is the same judge who let individuals out of jail without bail who made terrorist threats against police officers. One of who was a gang member charged with posting police death threats online. REALLY? This is the mayor that wants to make amends with the police? What a crock.
Sergeants union chief Ed Mullins said of De Blasio’s actions, “He had the opportunity to demonstrate good will and support for the police, and he once again has demonstrated the opposite.” Dennis Quirk, the head of the state court officers union, called de Blasio’s decision “a disgrace.”
NYC Mayor De Blazio, left – Judge Laura Johnson, right
Mayor Bill de Blasio delivered another blow to New York’s Finest on Wednesday when he reappointed a Brooklyn judge who freed without bail two men who threatened cops just days after the Bed-Stuy double police assassination.
The stunning decision came even as one of the suspects — a gang member charged with posting police death threats online — skipped a court date and had a warrant out for his arrest, sources said.
Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson had faced a midnight expiration of her term. She was appointed by then-Mayor Mike Bloomberg in January 2013.
Her one-year, interim reappointment by de Blasio outraged law enforcement officials a day after he met with the heads of five police unions to heal his fractured relationship with cops.
“The mayor’s actions of reappointing this judge are completely hypocritical to his argument that he’s pro-police and counterproductive to what he claims to be an effort to open dialogue going forward,” said sergeants union chief Ed Mullins.
“He had the opportunity to demonstrate good will and support for the police, and he once again has demonstrated the opposite.”
The head of the state court officers union, Dennis Quirk, called de Blasio’s decision “a disgrace.”
With these types of actions by De Blazio, no one has the right to tell the NYPD that they have no right to turn their backs to this Judas.
UPDATE I: The Daily News discusses whether de Blasio’s tense relationship with the NYPD casting shadow over DNC bid for 2016.
In other words, Democrat Party officials could care less that their liberal NYC mayor does not support the people who protect and serve, but rather the optics and how it will cast a bad light on Democrats. Screw the police, this is just about the further liberal politicization of the police doing their job.
Party officials are concerned the bad blood might still be an issue when the convention is held in 2016, stealing the spotlight from the party’s presidential nominee, a top Democrat told the Daily News.
“They’re worried about the optics,” said the source, who is familiar with the Democratic National Committee’s deliberations.
“Will [the police] turn their backs on the mayor? They don’t want side stories. The story should be the convention.”
MAYOR DE BLASIO HAS NO STREET CRED WITH POLICE … THIS MAN HAS NO SHAME …
Sorry, but New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio’s words ring terribly hollow as he speaks while attending the graduation ceremony of 884 officers at Madison Square Garden. As De Blasio praised the graduating class, some in the audience booed the mayor and one even called him a traitor. His words seem to be in direct conflict to those he previously made. De Blasio blamed police, threw them under the racism bus. The mayor combined racism and the police together. He took the side of the protester, not the police. Now he looks to praise the police.
Hizzoner was jeered by a few spectators as he took the podium, and some turned their backs in a protest similar to those he has faced since the murders of two NYPD cops in their squad car.
The boos also came with a few cries of “traitor” and heckling during his brief remarks.
“Let’s be honest about the realities of our society. You will confront all the problems that plague our society — problems that you didn’t create,” de Blasio said.
“You did!” someone then yelled, prompting laughter and applause.
De Blasio hardly sounds like he supported the police when he surrounded himself with the black community and no police officers blaming a history of racism in the wake of the grand juries decision not to indict police officers in the death of Eric Garner. De Blasio mentioned that he had to have that talk with his son about the dangers he may face, that the police are evil. Because of the history that hangs over blacks. Hmm, fire up the bus. UNREAL. I wonder if he had the speech with his son that a black man is most likely to be killed by another black male? Of course not.
