Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on outgoing New York
City Mayor Bill de Blasio:
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio?s last day in office is New Years Eve.
What he has done to the world?s greatest city is incalculable: he has
been an unmitigated disaster.
He is often compared to Mayor David Dinkins, but the comparison is
unfair. While Dinkins did great damage, which was undone by Rudy
Giuliani, he was merely incompetent. De Blasio?s war on New York City
was deliberate, a clear example of what happens when a Marxist takes
De Blasio?s life has been built on a series of lies. He was born
Warren Wilhelm Jr. in 1961. When he graduated from New York University
in 1983, he changed his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. In 2002, he
changed his name again, settling on Bill de Blasio. More important, he
never stops bragging how he is the champion of the poor, yet when he
ran for mayor in 2013, he accepted $50,000 from a group of slumlords.
When the New York Times nailed him for his allegiance to ?democratic
socialism? (which is an oxymoron), he said he never used those words.
When shown the proof that he had, he answered, ?It doesn?t matter.?
The lying is not confined to politics. De Blasio lied to his own
children about where he and his wife honeymooned: he said they went to
Canada, when in fact they went to Cuba, which was illegal. This made
sense. After all, he had previously traveled to Nicaragua to support
the Communist Sandinista regime, so why not break bread with Castro?s
Marxists hate religion, especially Catholicism. After de Blasio was
elected in November 2013, he appointed 60 New Yorkers to his
transition team, all of whom represented the various demographic
constituents. The clergy selected included every prominent group,
except for Catholics, even though Catholics are a majority of the
Just three weeks into his first term, de Blasio?s love for abortion
rights was evident when he supported ?100%? what Gov. Andrew Cuomo
said about so-called extreme conservatives. Those who are ?pro-life,?
the disgraced former governor said, ?have no place in the state of New
York, because that?s not who New Yorkers are.? Spoken like a true
liberal advocate of women?s rights.
Two-and-a-half months into his administration, de Blasio told Irish
Catholics to take a hike: he refused to march in the St. Patrick?s Day
Parade, falsely claiming that homosexuals were barred from
participating. Yet in 2017, the Marxist millionaire applauded when the
Puerto Rican Day Parade chose to honor a known thug, Oscar Lopez
Rivera, co-founder of the FALN, a terrorist organization.
De Blasio is the unmitigated enemy of the poor. Blacks and Hispanics
want charter schools and support school choice initiatives, but the
mayor has done everything in his power to stop them from having the
same choices afforded white affluent New Yorkers. He has also worked
against elite public schools, even though his son attended one of
them. Under his predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, failing public schools
were shuttered. Under de Blasio, they were awarded additional funding.
Crime has exploded in New York?murder has skyrocketed?yet de Blasio
says there are less arrests for other crimes. That?s true. When the
cops are told to stand down, muggers can do whatever they want, with
impunity. There is little in the way of law and order in the city,
thanks to de Blasio. The biggest victims, or course, are blacks.
When some Black Lives Matter protesters rioted in 2020, often joined
by Antifa, another band of urban terrorists, de Blasio cheered them
on, and did nothing to help the police or crime victims. He also gave
the rioters a dispensation from his social distancing edict?they could
march hand in hand. Yet he tried to close down houses of worship
during the pandemic.
When de Blasio took over on January 1, 2014, he gave his ?Tale of Two
Cities? address, condemning the ?economic and social inequalities that
threaten to unravel the city we love.? He failed. Indeed, he made
things worse. As the New York Times said on December 14, 2021, ?The
city?s unemployment rate of 9.4 percent is more than double the
The new mayor, Eric Adams, has his work cut out for himself. We wish
him well. De Blasio is finished. He should do us all a favor and move
to a place where he would be right at home. North Korea comes to mind.
