In a statement that can only be characterized as something out of a George Orwell novel, New York Mayor, Bill de Blasio has, in this writer’s opinion, taken the idea of double-speak to levels reserved only for those on psychiatric meds.
In an article published by Fox5 New York entitled, “De Blasio credits less guns for more stabbings,” Mayor de Blasio responds to the recent increase of stabbings and slashing’s across New York City by crediting fewer guns on the streets.
Although de Blasio’s statement may seem innocuous on its face, one cannot deny the obvious psychological manipulation that is taking place here. Mayor de Blasio, in his statement, is trying to convince his fellow New Yorkers that they should be grateful that they are now only being stabbed and injured, and not shot and killed, because of the fine work of the NYPD. The level of mental illness required to believe this type of propaganda would border on someone ripe for institutionalization; and that’s not hyperbole
Mayor de Blasio, openly admitting his lack of criminal expertise, further stated, “I’m not a criminologist but I can safely say that guns are being taken off the street in an unprecedented way. Some people, unfortunately, are turning to a different weapon.” A curious statement by de Blasio, don’t you think? I mean, is he saying that it’s not the weapon that is the enemy but the heart of the attacker? I will leave that for you to decide.
So if history is any guide, should we soon expect a city-wide push to confiscate all knives in NY? After we get all of those dangerous utensils off the streets, will they collect all hammers and lead pipes? How about confiscation of all motor vehicles? After all, they kill thousands each year. Ridiculous, you say? Do not be so sure.
A simple solution to the increase of slashing’s and stabbings across NYC is more firearms. Most criminals will not bring a knife to a gun-fight, and many more will give up crime altogether when faced with an armed populace. Until the good people of NYC realize this fact, they will continue to be victimized.
