(Right Country) – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been criticized quite a lot during his tenure as mayor of the country’s biggest city.
Sometimes it’s for doing nothing at all, other times it’s for not backing the blue.
Sometimes it’s for trekking across the city to attend his fancy gym while telling everyday people to reduce their carbon footprints, other times its taking a walk outside while telling New Yorkers to stay inside.
Sometimes it’s for calling out hundreds of Hasidic Jews for attending the funeral of a deceased rabbi, other times it’s for supporting densely-packed protests breaking the same social distancing guidelines of said Jews.
All in all, the man is a joke.
Now, he’s doing his part to virtue signal wildly to the radical left.
He has announced he will be installing a Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, according to sources who spoke with the New York Post.
This can only be described as incredibly petty.
The mural will be painted in yellow block letters along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets.
The idea for the mural originated from a June 7 meeting with community leaders and activists — a few days after Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser had “Black Lives Matter” painted along 16th street leading up to the White House, a second source said.
The mural is one of seven installations that will be created across the boroughs of New York City.
“The president is a disgrace to the values we cherish in New York City. He can’t run or deny the reality we are facing, and any time he wants to set foot in the place he claims is his hometown, he should be reminded Black Lives Matter,” a spokeswoman said explained.
The mural will reportedly be installed before July 4th.
Now, why the mayor thinks this is a good move when the nation is supposedly in the middle of both a pandemic and a new civil rights movement is one thing, but why he thinks it will somehow trigger Trump is quite another.
Trump undoubtedly knows the value of black lives.
This is why he is a pro-life president in a nation where black babies are aborted at higher rates than white babies.
This is why he’s fought to support the Second Amendment in a nation where black Americans are left stripped of their constitutional rights in the neighborhoods where they are most in need of being able to defend themselves.
This is why he worked towards record-low black unemployment, in a nation where the Democrats would rather keep black Americans beholden to the state.
But by all means, de Blasio, paint a little picture outside Trump Tower. That oughta teach him.
