De Blasio picked wrong weekend to be an idiot

July 10, 2017 |

The term “useful idiot” is defined at the Rational Wiki website as “someone who supports one side of an ideological debate, but who is manipulated and held in contempt by the leaders of their faction or is unaware of the ultimate agenda driving the ideology to which they subscribe.” It was coined during the 1950s –- some believe Lenin came up with it, but we don’t know –- in reference to socialist protesters deliberately inflamed with mindless passions and sent by organizers where needed. (Another great term for this is “rent-a-mob.”) As opposed to a genuine grassroots movement, a group comprised of useful idiots is played like a violin by those controlling it and has little in the way of a unifying ideology, other than anger. Just as the term states, they’re not very smart and they are being used.

I’d like to be able to give the mayor of New York credit for at least a speck of intelligence, but the fact that Bill de Blasio went to Hamburg to join the G20 protest, which was comprised of useful idiots setting cars on fire and attacking police officers (sending some to the hospital) in the name of socialism and anarchy, makes that impossible. I must either call him an idiot or assume that he actually is aware of the organizers’ ultimate agenda and chooses to support it anyway. Either conclusion is tragic for the people he's supposed to serve.

But maybe he’s both: a true supporter of anarchy for attending the protest, but also an idiot for doing it at the same time a freshly assassinated New York cop was being remembered. (Like Certs: a candy mint AND a breath mint!) The irony can’t be missed: at a time when law enforcement in America is literally under fire, the mayor of New York lends his support to violent protest. In fact, this was a big weekend to support law enforcement here in our country; it also marked a year since the shocking massacre of five cops in Dallas. But we know where de Blasio’s heart really is –- and isn’t –- because he has shown us.

    De Blasio is an embarrassment......he should resign or be recalled, definetely should not be representing the people of NY.

    Thank you, Mr. Huckabee. I agree with everything you've said, except that I would not be gracious enough to give Mayor diBlasio credit for having any intelligence or insight. It would be a blessing if he stayed in Germany (not for the Germans).

    Good day to you Sir. I must thank you for your comments of GREAT common sense and loyalty to the American way of life. New York's Mayor needs to be replaced on Nov 7th this year, as I am almost sure he will be now that he abandoned his own people at a time when they needed him most. He is not the least knowledgeable about staying together for the common good of New Yorkers' and most importantly the Police community who protects them all. They really needed his support and inspiration and he bailed on everyone, maybe with an eye on a national stage where he could never sit. His Obama like representation of a politician is disgusting, to say the least.
    I do have a question that has come to mind as to why Linda Sansour is still a free citizen after "communicating a threat to an elected official, the President of the United States"? How can anyone let this go for using a public forum to incite violence, jihad, against the leader of the free world? I do not claim to be anything but an American, loyal to the core, and verily well
    educated, but I see a threat clear as day, yet she walks free to spew her hate to crowds asking for violence. Something isn't right about that. I do realize you can't arrest everyone for stupid comments or we'd have no democrats, but this is something else. Her call for violence and sharia law are against all the norms of the society she runs in and she's free. Just a musing of ideas and I appreciate your time.

    Why was he not arrested there??? I don't care what country you are in -- you don't get to be an unlawful idiot. Destruction of property and support of that and assault should be as illegal there as it is here, and both need to be dealt with legally. What a complete jerk.
