After NYPD officer assassinated, De Blasio blows off NYPD ceremony to protest at G20 Summit

Priorities.

From NY Post: Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.

Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”

De Blasio will be the keynote speaker, organizers of the demonstration — Hamburg Shows Attitude — tweeted.

The mayor also made sure the free trip will include a visit with his son, Dante, a Yale University student who’s spending the summer on an internship in Berlin, a City Hall spokesman said.

Presumptive Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis accused de Blasio of abandoning pressing issues in the Big Apple to pursue his progressive agenda in Europe. “Unbelievable. Instead of jet-setting around the world, he should be here doing his job,” said the Staten Island assemblywoman. “A police officer was murdered, street homelessness has skyrocketed and people continue to get delayed on the trains.”

Malliotakis — who later tweeted a doctored image showing de Blasio in an Alpine hat and lederhosen, grinning behind a plate of bratwurst, wienerschnitzel and Pilsner glasses — also blasted him for blowing off the NYPD ceremony at the Police Academy in Queens.

“The mayor should be embarrassed by the way he has treated the men and women of our police department,” she said.

The head of the NYPD sergeants union also attacked de Blasio. “As the city mourns, its leader flees,” Ed Mullins said. “And then he wonders why he has a problem with the police. A real leader stays with the city in this time of hardship.”

Less than five hours before de Blasio’s flight to Berlin, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill offered reassurance to 524 new recruits in the wake of Wednesday’s slaying of Officer Miosotis Familia.

The 12-year veteran and mom of three was shot in the back of the head by cop-hating ex-con Alexander Bonds, who opened fire through the window of a mobile command center vehicle.

O’Neill told the recruits he was sure many family members “are questioning whether you’re making the right decision, especially after yesterday’s tragedy in the Bronx.”

“I’m here to tell you, you are making the right decision,” he insisted.

Asked why de Blasio — who spent the day holed up at Gracie Mansion — didn’t join O’Neill to help rally the recruits, spokesman Eric Phillips replied: “Scheduling conflicts.”

O’Neill later offered his condolences to Familia’s 12-year-old twins, Delilah and Peter, during a visit to their home in the Bronx. “There are so many young officers that have never been through this before and for the next couple of days it’s going to be very difficult for them and for the family, too,” he said.

De Blasio was joined on the trip by Phillips and two other aides, whose travel expenses are also being picked up by Hamburg Shows Attitude.

Phillips said the gifts were approved in advance by the city Conflicts of Interest Board, whose general counsel said it was “prohibited by law from disclosing any information regarding advice we provide.”

In October, de Blasio told a class of NYPD recruits, “We honor you for making this choice,” before adding that “what we owe to you is every effort to keep you safe.”

Following Familia’s slaying, her sister, Adriana Sanchez, ripped de Blasio, saying that “the mayor has to do something for this madness to stop,” and that windows on NYPD vehicles should have been made bulletproof “a long time ago.”

Later Thursday, following de Blasio’s departure, City Hall announced a $1.3 million plan to outfit “all NYPD command vehicles used by uniform personnel” with bullet-resistant window panels and other safety upgrades.

The city had already earmarked $10.4 million for window panels in 38,000 patrol vehicles, with 151 equipped as of Wednesday, according to the NYPD.

  1. Has this POS fulfilled even one of his duties? He always seems to have conflicting schedules going on. Such disrespect to the officers, but this isn’t the first time. They turned their backs on him before, as they should have. He has let the city down time and again and from what I have seen and heard, made no improvements anywhere. He should be removed for dereliction of duty, but I would guess his pockets will be full if he leaves. He has always seemed totally disconnected to what his job should be.
    And who in the heck is Hamburg Shows Attitude and who really finances it? It smells funny. And he is allowed to accept that gift? No way.

    • Glenn47 . . . Bravo! I could not agree more. He is like so many leftists . . . when they get to the top, they scarf everything they can possibly get, after all it’s free! He should man up and avoid even the appearance of impropriety on his part. He sickens me .. . I do hope that the people of NYC will vote in the Republican that is running.

  2. This is a first: A government official (NY mayor) of a capitalist country (USA) joining the G20 anti-capitalist anarchist protest. Anarchists, by definition, are anti all governments.

    When De Blasio gets there, the 15,000-strong German police should arrest him, just as they’ve already arrested at least 70 protesters.

  3. Thank You, DCG, for posting this article. This Mayor, operating under his nom de guerre, William “Bill” Deblasio, has a real name, Warren Wilhelm. This tips me off AT THE GET-GO that he is possessed of a strong communistic attitude, for the first thing communists do is operate under pseudonyms. (Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, et al., all had real names, not the names history calls them). So the next step is to identify, what, if any, real connections he has. And, YES, this IS a case that calls for guilt by association: We must find out WHO this man—clearly a total political imbecile—IS.
    Deblasio/Wilhelm has made it a point to disrespect police in general and the NYPD in particular from the get-go. Within the first year of his mayorality, he had a major fight with the Department, and the Police Officer’s Benevolent Association, headed by Patrick Lynch, had a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to get this man out of office. I wasn’t there to witness the telephone calls and conversations, but I know New York politics is a SMOKEHOUSE of deals and corruption! I am still angry at Lynch for blowing this GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY, and I believe he was either bribed or blackmailed, for now we’re stuck with a MORON who is now actively detested by the lion’s share of people who voted for him.
    Even the NY Daily News—no Champion of the Working Man—told Deblasio/Wilhelm, on its front page today to “Stay There.” The NY Daily News, a neo-con rag that I gave up on once Zuckerman bought it, got this one right. But let’s look at the other side of the equation: Neither I nor most of my riders can remember whom the Republicans ran against this dope. Are they going to run this Staten Island lady, Malliotakis? (Even I had to go back to the article for the correct spelling of her name!) I am telling everybody NOW, this lady WILL LOSE against ANYONE, including Bozo the Clown for this reason: Not only does she have ZERO name recognition, but New Yorkers, constantly distracted and interrupted by the warp and woof of their daily lives, WILL NOT vote for anyone whose name they cannot spell or pronounce, let alone remember. This doesn’t even take into account the underlying racialistic animadversions some minority New Yorkers have against ANY white candidate. That’s right: Black people may vote for a white MAN; They WILL NOT vote for ANY WOMAN other than Hillary Clinton. This is not a comedy act, it is not hatred, it is not even funny: It is the simple truth.
    I know from Democratic power brokers I’ve met over the years that all NYC politics is a smoke-filled-room poker-party affair. Good, bad or indifferent, that’s just the way it’s been since at least Jimmy Walker. That’s right, Fiorello LaGuardia was in on it, too. It is what it is.
    But in Deblasio/Wilhelm, were stuck not only with a horse’s ass laughing idiot (DCG, your classic photo of the man is ICONIC), but a politically and operationally dangerous man: Any Mayor who WILL NOT back up and support the NYPD is NOT to be trusted, on several levels. First, the safety of the City is Priority # 1—even the minorities know this. But not only the NYPD, but the rest of the City, too: How do we know this Mayor CAN do the job? Look at the homeless population (which I hope NOT to join). Look at sanitation. Go down every department.
    THIS is the problem: Deblasio/Wilhelm may win a second term by DEFAULT. Malliotakis is a dupe, regardless of how conscientious she is: NO ONE KNOWS who she is. New Yorkers FEAR a conservative (I do not). And New Yorkers WILL NOT vote for—1) anyone whose name they can neither spell or pronounce, 2) anyone from Staten Island, and 3) anyone who is a conservative. How do I know this? Malliotakis gave the answer away herself: She said last week that she regretted her previous resistance of gay marriage. So here’s the clue: The LGBT share of the voting population will be used to slide this Mr. Ed loser into City Hall for a second term.
    That’s the deal. And the truth.

      But with all this talent,he STILL has that GOOFY FACE. No wonder he’s so twisted….

      • Warren Wilhelm is his birth name. He changed his name to William de Blasio, after his mother’s Italian family name because his parents split when he was 7 and he was largely brought up by his mother’s family.

        It’s been observed that many on the Left have a fractured psychology because of childhood/family traumas. De Blasio is an example. Doesn’t excuse what he chose to become, of course.

        • Dr. E.
          I could be wrong, but I think he changed his name from Warren Wilhelm (Jewish father) to Bill Wilhelm while in college and then finally to Bill DeBlasio when he got into politics. (My memory of the timeline may be off.)
          Also, it doesn’t necessarily follow that because his mother was Italian that she (or Wilhelm’s) upbringing was Christian.

    • It would have been great if they had stopped and ID’d as many rioters as they could get their hands on and if they were from out of country or without ID, have them cool their heels off in jail for several days. A cold, dark, miserable jail. Don’t bother to send them home, let them find their own way. I would bet a large number were from the US and maybe even DeBlasio is in on it. Keep him also.

  4. Police are cry babies they don’t need the Mayor to rally their recruits

    • You know who is probably still crying? These babies.

      De Blasio is facing major backlash. His role as a mayor is to provide leadership and attend ceremonial duties. His role includes addressing his local citizen’s concerns: homelessness, crime, the crappy subway system that is breaking down, etc. This does not include attending some global riot/protest to feed his TDS.

      He is to provide leadership when the community is under stress, as in the case of one of their police being assassinated. His skipping out on the NYPD at a time when they are under extreme stress does not set a good pathway to mutual respect, support of colleagues, and a good relationship.

      • Not to mention as you point out, ceremonial duties such as attending a slain police officer’s funeral are a part of de Blasio’s job as mayor. It is not his job to join a violent protest in Germany.

    One of my favorite TV shows is Blue Bloods. It makes me feel that there are still some noble people in control. The show’s writers often create episodes that spring from news headlines like these. So I am looking forward to a story line about a murdered female cop and a treasonous mayor. Let’s see if this happens.

  8. NYC deserves who they elect. I feel bad for the conservative minority, but no one is forcing them to stay there. They ought to vote with their feet if so outnumbered by Progressive idiots (but, I repeat myself) that their voting becomes futile.
