If there is a present day microcosm that best illustrates the aggressive, ruthless and despicable killer instinct of the Democratic left vs. the unwillingness of the Republican right to fight, a contrast between NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) fits the bill. Let’s start with de Blasio’s speech at the funerals for NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

King: Looking out for de Blasio's reputation.

King: Looking out for de Blasio’s reputation.

As the New York Times pointed out (after five paragraphs of pro-de Blasio sap), the Mayor even quoted scripture:

“I extend my condolences to another family, the family of the N.Y.P.D. that is hurting so deeply right now,” the mayor said. In a 10-minute speech, he quoted from the New Testament, saying, “Blessed are the peacemakers,” and described how police officers “help make a place that otherwise would be torn with strife a place of peace.”

Suspicions that de Blasio didn’t mean a word of it and that he only cared about his political hide were in abundance (after all, he is a socialist which is usually synonymous with atheist). Those suspicions were all but validated when it was learned that while de Blasio was pretending to be compassionate to the NYPD, his henchmen were privately contacting Democratic lawmakers to encourage them to publicly rip an NYPD union leader Patrick Lynch.

Via DNAInfo:

“City Hall wanted me to blast the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association for turning their backs on him,” a Big Apple legislator told “On The Inside.” “They called up Monday, said they were calling all of us, and that it was our obligation to stand up defending the mayor.”

There was an expectation from City Hall that “because they were calling that we should do whatever they ask,” the lawmaker said.

Another lawmaker, who also received a call from a top City Hall official, said he did not feel pressured to speak out, but thought it was “really inappropriate” to be asked even though he did not agree with the police protests.

Can it get anymore despicable? Does this not show de Blasio was intentionally and malevolently misusing Scripture? While speaking at a funeral for two of NYPD’s finest and citing a Bible verse that references “peacemakers”, de Blasio’s advisers were out making political war with the Police.

While this was unquestionably NYC sewer politics, it also demonstrates that the Democratic left will double down on just about anything, regardless of how low it takes them; they’re always on offense.

Contrast de Blasio’s despicable behavior with how King reacted to NYPD officers rightly turning their backs on de Blasio at the funeral. Instead of calling out de Blasio, King admonished the officers for doing what should have been done, saying that by turning their backs on the mayor, officers risked making de Blasio a sympathetic figure.

Instead of shining a light on what de Blasio actually did to deserve more than just the backs of NYPD officers, King suggested those officers willingly take even more abuse.

Here is the relevant excerpt in question, from King’s appearance on WABC:

These quotes from King are a disgrace:

“I wouldn’t have done it,” King said Tuesday on WABC. “But I think they’ve made their points. I understand why they did it, but I don’t want it to be creating sympathy for de Blasio either.”

The behavior of de Blasio contrasted with that of King is a direct reflection of how the country’s top Democrat (Obama) and Republican (Boehner) conduct politics as well – disgracefully on both sides.
