The Rotting Big Apple | The American Spectator:
"As New York City’s descent into pre-Giuliani disorder and squalor continues, Mayor Bill de Blasio busies himself with left-wing causes beyond satire.
This week he unveiled a “cultural plan,” which consists largely of threatening museums with budgetary cuts unless they bump up their “diversity” hires.
The Big Apple’s museums are too “elitist,” said de Blasio.
Never mind that most of these museums are indistinguishable from minority studies programs at local colleges.
It is impossible to visit a NYC museum without encountering PC exhibits of one kind or another.
Indeed, those dominate most of their collections.
It is hard to see how these museums could get any more “minority-friendly.”
In describing these museums as “elitist,” de Blasio is in effect saying that too many white liberals work at them.
His “cultural” plan is just a political gift to the minority groups he needs for his re-election.
...The word on the street is that no matter how badly he governs he is assured re-election, owing to all the unions and minority organizations in his pocket combined with the absence of any well-organized and well-financed opposition.
...Reeling from threats of litigation and stifled by PC guidelines, cops, he said, avoid interacting with potential criminals.
“They don’t want to lose their pensions,” he said.
Last week a woman returning from church in Queens was sexually assaulted by five thugs.
She tried to stop them by crying out falsely that she was “HIV positive,” but that didn’t work.
The thugs, you see, had evidently gone through one of the city’s “safe sex” programs.
Consequently, they restricted their assaulting to oral sex while one of the thugs darted off for “protection” from a corner store.
The horrifying episode captured the hideousness of life amidst the ruins of a culture that prizes condoms over cops, a culture for which its greatest boast is that even its rapists practice “safe sex.”..."
