Mayor Bill DeBlasio thinks of himself as a progressive, very left leaning modern liberal. He’s demonstrated those commitments time after time from his approach to crime (and law enforcement), to economics, to trying to squelch the success of Uber.
So it struck some observers as strange when he came out very strongly against topless panhandlers in parading in Times Square.
These women, covered only in body paint and little else—alongside other costumed cretins dressed as Elmo and Spider Man—both offend and pester tourists for money.
DeBlasio doesn’t like this unsavory element, and for good reason. He’s even threatening to shut down the pedestrian plaza in Times Square.
But the broader point remains: the DeBlasio administration just makes people yearn for the good old days when Rudy Giuliani was mayor, the man who cleaned up Times Square to begin with, and drove crime down.
Mr. DeBlasio, you can take this to the bank: Conservative ideas are better for the common good.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/222200037″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
