A Letter to Mayor Bill De Blasio on Cops and Horses

Letter: De Blasio on Cops and Horses


De Blasio wants to annihilate horse carriages in New York.  So far his pronouncements about police brutality and the threats to his son have led to the assassinations of two cops — Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

I’m afraid that de Blasio’s equine ideology will lead to horses being turned into glue or cat food. He doesn’t care.  He just wants to shove his clichéd ideas through the sphincter of his biased brain.

Be Blasio is a man of ideas.  He is a progressive.  Unfortunately, his ideas are detached from reality and end up in the deaths of the citizens he is supposed to be watching out for.  The deaths of Ramos and Liu will be compounded. Without them to protect us, dozens of people will not be saved from assault by de Blasio’s blindfolded ideas.

De Blasio feels that he doesn’t want to burden horses with having to pull carriages.  But horses are made to pull carriages and to carry people.  They are beasts of burden.  Carrying is their Aristotelian end.  It’s what they are supposed to do.

De Blasio’s taking their occupations from horses vitiates their reason for being.  They become glue, and their killer, De Blasio, congratulates himself as a humanitarian instead of a mindless barbarian.

De Blasio regards himself as an animal hero. Taking away people’s jobs and horses’ occupations is not heroic.  Nor is exposing cops to getting murdered by a fanatic mayor’s dictates, a man who breathes the air of his rebellion against the city that he runs.

The mayor is supposed to be the Sun God.  Not a fallen angel who attacks his own administration and laws.

De Blasio makes money off animals’ rights groups and has his dirty hands in the real estate that will be freed up by closing the stables. 350 carriage workers will be unemployed and 220 horses will probably end up in horse heaven but does de Blasio care?

The NY horses have easier jobs than any farm animal and de Blasio is sticking his big feet into their stable straw.

Stop de Blasio from criticizing the cops and the horses. Then we might find cops on horses protecting us rather than dead cops and glue buckets of horses.

De Blasio—such a sincere man.  But like an urban horse he wears blinders. Beware, he might stab you in the back with his feed pail while he is pretending to give you water.
