New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Personal Inferno

There was no question when Bill de Blasio ran for office that his concern for the feelings of minorities (even the criminals) outweighed his desire to protect them or whites from beatings, rapes and murders.

And now, during his first month in office, there has already been a 33 percent spike in murders in New York City.

So far there have been 28 homicides as compared to 21 last year.

Now, what should De Blasio tell those corpses?  I’m sorry that my concern for the discomfort of murderers has sent you underground?  Perhaps De Blasio should have been a Cub Scout leader where all he had to worry about was children getting scratched knees during stick ball.

The man is obviously not capable of making decisions where life and death are concerned.  Just ask the 28 dead or their families.

What would the mothers of the dead say?  Would they say that Bill conspired  in the death of their sons while he made the killer feel that he was too important for a frisk?

crimeHow would Bill feel if his son, Dante, got murdered by someone his hamstrung police didn’t bother to stop and frisk? Would he be proud of his misinterpretation of civil rights and of his naïve allergy towards profiling?  Would he feel good that he is a stupid, large man with no perception and that his dead son is evidence of his errors?

Or would he be socially minded like a communist and say that the death of an individual is not as important as the grand scheme for a society? Would Big Bill find no time for personal grieving because it is not socially motivated?

I think the real Dante Alighieri who wrote The Inferno would save a tenth layer of hell for hypocrites who pretend to do good while they undercut the magic carpet of American society and its dream.

The heat is on in the inferno of weak willed deeds and politicians who appease their base.

Love is personal not governmental.  There is no bureaucracy for feelings.
