De Blasio and Officer Eugene Donnelly

We can’t fault Mayor de Blasio for awarding Officer Eugene Donnelly the Police Combat Cross. Eugne hadn’t yet beaten a woman up. Perhaps we can fault De Blasio for getting married in Cuba and being sympathetic to anti-Semitic Nicaragua

But why does de Blasio always make the wrong choices?  Why does he support an outdated Utopian philosophy like Progressivism and hurt minorities by eliminating stop-and-frisk?

Does de Blasio have no instinct for right and wrong?  Even if he didn’t knew that Donnelly was a violent slob who would beat up a sleeping woman, why does he always side with the bad and have no clue as to its evil presence?  He doesn’t know right from wrong because in his Progressive system there is only ideas without emotions.

I’m not saying that de Blasio should have known that Donnelly would punch a woman thirty times and cavalierly drink her milk as if it were a wholesome snack after his violence.

But why is de Blasio never right?  He is on his way to bankrupting the city and shootings are thirteen per cent up.

De Blasio is a progressive ideologue.  The thing about ideologues is that they are not pragmatic.  They do not adjust to situations and bang their heads against ideational walls until they bleed.  And we bleed.

De Blasio is a tall monster of a man.  He is also a monster of a human being who pretends he is a humanitarian while he hurts everyone around him.
