Cheapskate: Tax returns show de Blasio paid more for tax preparation than he gave to charities in 2017

bill de blasio

Shocker, not.

The mayor has a net worth of $1.5 million.

From NY Post: Charity starts at home, but not if that home is Gracie Mansion.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife gave a grand total of $350 to charity in 2017 on an adjusted gross income of $223,449, according to tax returns they released Tuesday.

It marked a significant drop from the first couple’s charitable giving in 2016 — when de Blasio was up for re-election — of $2,088 to charity.

Asked about the donation gap, mayoral spokesman Austin Finan responded that “the mayor is not a rich man.”

“He and the first lady help their son pay tuition to one of the most expensive schools in the country,” Finan added. The couple listed the tuition payments at Yale University for their son, Dante, as $51,400 in 2017.

They also listed their two Park Slope rental properties as generating tax losses of more than $12,000, despite collecting a combined $104,000 in rent last year.

The fee for their tax preparer was $500.

New York City government recognizes 31 genders

Nearly half a year ago, I reported that speech crime has come to America: New York City can fine employers for up to $¼ million for failing to call an employee by his/her preferred name, pronoun, or title. In other words, if a biological male employee imagines himself to be a woman, his employer is bound by city law to address him as “she”. No medical certification of s0-called transgenderism is required.

As Mayor Bill De Blasio’s New York City Commission on Human Rights puts it:

“In New York City, it’s illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity and gender expression in the workplace, in public spaces, and in housing. The NYC Commission on Human Rights is committed to ensuring that transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers are treated with dignity and respect and without threat of discrimination or harassment.”

The Commission defines “gender identity” entirely subjectively as “One’s internal, deeply-held sense of one’s gender as male, female, or something else entirely,” and a “transgender” as “someone whose gender identity does not match the sex they were assigned at birth.”

All of which means that in New York City, by law individuals
have the right to:

  • “Work and live free from discrimination and harassment due to their gender identity/expression.
  • Use the bathroom or locker room most consistent with their gender identity and/or expression without being required to show ‘proof’ of gender.
  • Be addressed with their preferred pronouns and name without being required to show ‘proof’ of gender.
  • Follow dress codes and grooming standards consistent with their gender identity/expression.”

That employers and landlords would be fined for not calling someone by the gender of their imagination is bad enough.

Worse still, the New York City Commission on Human Rights’ publication, Gender ID Card, actually lists 31 genders! Beginning with the very boring “man” and “woman,” the 31 genders in alphabetical order are:

  1. Man
  2. Woman
  3. Agender
  4. Androgyne
  5. Androgynous
  6. Bi-gendered
  7. Butch
  8. Cross-dresser
  9. Drag king
  10. Drag queen
  11. Femme
  12. Femme queen
  13. Female-to-male
  14. FTM
  15. Gender bender
  16. Gender blender
  17. Gender gifted
  18. Gender fluid
  19. Genderqueer
  20. Hijra (Note: Wikipedia says “hijra” is a term used in South Asia, especially in India, to refer to trans women (male-to-female transgenders).
  21. Male-to-female
  22. MTF
  23. Non-binary transgender
  24. Non-op
  25. Pangender
  26. Person of transgender experience
  27. Third sex
  28. Trans
  29. Transexual/transsexual
  30. Trans person
  31. Two-spirit

The Gender ID Card gives no explanation or definition for any of the above 31 genders. Here’s a screenshot of the card:
