Here's a perfect example of a tyrannical leftist politician’s delusions of grandeur: New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio announced that he will magnanimously "allow" people to gather in Times Square for New Year’s Eve, but ONLY if they have “papers” to verify that they are fully vaccinated or have had a negative COVID test in the previous 72 hours.
I want you to think about that. Have you ever seen Times Square on New Year’s Eve? Have you even been in Times Square on any typical weekend night? It’s like a giant sardine can of humanity. On New Year’s Eve, upwards of 100,000 people will be cramming into a few city blocks. How will they check everyone’s “papers”? Well, New York City Police will have to set up “security checkpoints” and make everyone who enters the area show vaccine documents and a photo ID.
Hold on! A PHOTO ID?! This sounds like a racist attempt to suppress minority participation in New Year’s Eve! Also, after all the police budget cuts under DeBlasio, they don’t even have enough cops to keep New Yorkers from robbing and shooting people, but they have enough to stand around on New Year’s Eve, demanding to see 100,000 sets of "papers" to ensure it’s “safe” for people to stand around outdoors?
Oh, well, at least New Yorkers will have a really good reason to celebrate the arrival of the new year. It means that at long, long last, Bill DeBlasio will finally be leaving office.
