Posted on 09/09/2017 9:31:44 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday announced the 16-member committee that will review all "symbols of hate" on city property over the next three months. Announced in the wake of violence waged by white nationalists at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month, the group is tasked with establishing guidelines for how to assess statues and monuments "seen as oppressive and inconsistent with the values of New York City."
The group will also make specific recommendations for "a select few items," according to City Hall. This number undoubtedly includes the statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle, which Mayor de Blasio has refused to take a side on. City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito has called for the statue to be removed, citing Columbus's legacy as a colonizer, while mayoral challengers Nicole Malliotakis, the GOP frontrunner, and Democratic challenger Sal Albanese have come out in the statue's defense. This week, Malliotakis charged that de Blasio "obviously doesn't have the heart and soul of an Italian."

Will they call it the Troika?
That’s nothing compared to the committee of millions reviewing de Blasio himself from now until the end of his days.
When’s the next mayoral election?
So no de Blasio campaign signs will be allowed.
The party primaries are September 12. The general election is November 7.
Unbelievable waste of time and tax money.
De Blasio triggers me. He is oppressive and inconsistent with my values as an American citizen. He and his committee can go straight to hell.
Well, off the top of my head :
the statue of Columbus in Columbus Circle
I’m sure there are many more “OFFENSIVE” places in New York City, or, I should say, offensive to the liberals.
Have at it. Rename everything for Che, Fidel, Barack, go for it. Let’s have that debate.
Will that include pictures of de Blasio?
What about people like him, ANTIFA, and the other communist-revolutionary hate America groups that he supports? Recall he traveled to Germany last month to address an ANTIFA-type/anarchist crowd.
I assume Trump Tower will be on the List.
Don't let his plain jane looks fool you. He is filled and brimming over with hate for anything not Marxist in nature. He seems to hate white people the most. Maybe that's why he's filled with self-loathing.
Absolutely right. Those statues have been sitting there for G-d-knows-how-long, and nobody said boo about them. Now, to keep up with the trendy morons, NYC has to get into the "statue removal dance". It absolutely figures DeDumDum would be right in the middle of any lame brained libtard waste of taxpayer money aimed to show what a super libtard he is. How about fixing the streets, replacing burnt out streetlights, and cleaning up drug neighborhoods? That would be too blasé for The Dope From Park Slope.
