No Guts No Glory

Impeach de Blasio
June 23, 2020 8:13 am

He’s out of touch with the people in the city. Time to impeach him!!!

Yes!
June 23, 2020 8:19 am

Great job!!!! Keep this up until the fireworks stop! DeBlasio is a coward for blocking off the blocks around his house. Why didn’t he come out and try to convince his neighbors to please stop?

And it is the NYPD blocking his house….
He still wants to defund the police?!

About time

THANK YOU

Hope this message was heard loud and clear! My ten year old granddaughter sadly told me over Shabbos “Bubby; I go to sleep with the fireworks, I wake up with the fireworks and I eat with the fireworks!

Not late enough, not long enough, not loud enough! Do it again, and again!

Yes, continued firewoks and other noises night after night are horrid but this is a childish display of “back at you.”

No social distancing. Almost no masks worn. Noise which probably damaged hearing.
Disturbing the peace of people who have no association with the Mayor’s inaction.

NOT a Chillul Hashem!

What exactly are the good people of NYC getting out of this deal lately?
Let the mayor put up with a little disruption to his life, for a change. I’m sure he didn’t order the police to ‘stand down’ when the crowd came to his house.

We shall stand up for our rights
June 23, 2020 11:13 am

And not be like lame ducks.

Hmm…sounds familiar…this is exactly what those protesting police brutality are saying!
We’re protesting no sleep; they’re protesting no breath….at least we can now have some bit of empathy!

Say what?

This and the comment before are so out of context and downright stupid.
Firstly, the entire community is fed up from almost 3 weeks of constant fireworks and lacking sleep. Many people are suffering, as opposed to 1 black man (Who has a criminal history) being killed by police brutality.
Secondly, there’s nothing wrong with peaceful protest.
Thirdly, the community tried doing it the right way, but nothing helped and there was no one to talk to.
Finally, it worked!

Oh, the spectacular ignorance!

The protests are not about one man being killed!
And, yes, ‘the entire community’ (just, it’s not ‘your’ community) is fed up from generations of discrimination!
Before you write another word, at least get some tiny bit of information if you want to make a case!

hahaha this is beautiful
June 23, 2020 11:39 am

I’m happy our community is taking action and showing our antisemitic good for nothing mayor that he needs to take a stand for once. At least until we manage to impeach that horrible potato of a mayor

Good job!
June 23, 2020 11:51 am

Proud of the people who took action!

#1 hypocrite
June 23, 2020 11:54 am

Just love how the NYPD is stationed right in front of that mansion…

Hope & Pride
June 23, 2020 3:41 pm

This makes me filled with hope for our future. This makes me filled with pride. This is one of the most beautiful things I have seen in a long time. Jews standing up for the 7 mitzvahs of Noach. Teaching the world that we are not to be silent in the face of destruction and lawlessness. We have an obligation. First to ourselves, and our security, but ultimately, even for the violent firecracker throwers themselves. Allowing them to run rampant and engage in violence makes their trajectory as good citizens weaker. We owe to ourselves, to all citizens, but even… Read more »

Doesn’t the mayor sleep in park slope?

A wonderful Protest!

Thank You, Thank You.
By protecting your neighborhoods you have, actually, voiced your anger against Police Lawlessness.
There are reports that adult white males were handing out boxes of expensive illegal fireworks to known neighborhood kids-gangstas. I’ve seen a video of a police officer igniting them plus others. The whole fireworks disturbances have been aimed at minority areas, orchestrated by Police Unions in retaliation against minority areas protesting Police Budgets.
