Every day, the Democrats make America look a little bit more like 1984.
In New York City, far left Mayor Bill de Blasio now wants to use the NYPD as speech police. Democrats are letting actual criminals out of jail, but the mayor wants police to confront innocent people over speech.
What in the world is going on here?
The Federalist reports:
De Blasio Encourages NYPD To Confront Noncriminal Conduct They Deem Hateful
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is encouraging the city’s law enforcement to police behavior they believe is hateful, even if it is not criminal.
“I assure you, if an NYPD officer calls you or shows up at your door to ask about something you did, that makes people think twice, and we need that,” de Blasio told reporters on Thursday.
De Blasio’s advice follows an Atlanta shooting that killed six women. While the shooter admitted that it was a “sex addiction” that drove him to kill, multiple politicians, corporate media outlets, and others have speculated if it was a targetted attack on Asian Americans. It was because of the narrative surrounding this shooting that de Blasio said the New York Police Department would make a point to investigate complaints and concerns over “anti-Asian sentiment and hate crimes.”
“Even if something is not a criminal case, a perpetrator being confronted by the city, whether it’s NYPD or another agency, and being told that what they’ve done was very hurtful to another person—and could, if ever repeated, lead to criminal charges—that’s another important piece of the puzzle,” de Blasio said.
This is insanity and un-American.
“I assure you, if an NYPD officer calls you or shows up at your door to ask about something you did, that makes people think twice, and we need that.”

Defund the police! Have non-armed social workers address non-violent matters! Unless there is a thought crime in which case the NYPD will be there presently. https://t.co/3B6VE6FFyR
