Skip to comments.De Blasio blasted by police over Germany protest junket

On Thursday, July 5, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, with no advance notice to the public he serves, jetted off to Hamburg, Germany, to attend the G-20 Summit, where heads of state and leaders or representatives from worldwide organizations and entities meet to discuss global imperatives. The mayor is not there to participate in the open dialogue between more than 20 participating countries and scores of international organizations and invited guests. He is to be the keynote speaker for an event called Hamburg Shows Attitude, which is described as a protest really for democracy and human rights. He will also squeeze in a visit with his son Dante, a Yale University student doing a summer internship in Berlin.
The mayors timing for this trip is inexplicable and shows a complete lack of regard for anyone but himself and the advancement of his progressive ideals. Less than 24 hours earlier, a uniformed NYPD police officer, Miosotis Familia, was brutally assassinated by Alexander Bonds, an ex-convict who was under parole supervision and had been released from a Bronx psychiatric facility just days before committing the murder. Officer Familia, a former Red Cross worker, was a 12-year police veteran, devoted single mother to three children, and the primary caretaker for her own ailing octogenarian mother who was recuperating from cancer surgery.
In yet another act of hubris and hypocrisy, the mayor ignored the swearing-in ceremony of 524 NYPD recruits, even though PO Familias murder was still such a fresh wound on the citys collective psyche. If ever the young, eager, enthusiastic and idealistic recruits, who hailed from every corner of the globe, needed words of reassurance or affirmation from their leader, it was then.

If every law enforcement officer there would just talk to ten ordinary voters, de Blasio would be gone.
Bill DeBlasio is hamburg.
I imagine the boy was just wanting to visit all of his extended family members in the Wilhelm family still living in Germany.
Just out of curiosity... does the word Blasio translate from French or Italian and if so, what does it mean?
This is from his twitter account.....
Bill de Blasio NYCMayor 4h
I’m at the G20 talking about climate change, income inequality, and immigration issues where cities are showing the way forward.
Cities showing the way forward, meanwhile his own city is on the brink of disaster
I don’t doubt it, and I hope they do.
The Leftist pig should be met by a crowd of angry New Yorkers that dwarfs the rioting thugs in Black that he was encouraging in Hamburg. He is unfit for his job.
Wonder what Ed Koch would think?
This guy is an idiot, a first class idiot
Looks like there are “turds in the G20 Punchbowl” ... DeBlasio, Brown, ....
Patten never jetted of for a weekend in Paris ...
He stayed and gave his men a pep talk and they took Europe back from the Nazis...
These 500+ new policemen will do well but a pep talk and encouragement from the city’s top guy would have been nice...
especially since its traditional and I’m sure they were expecting it...it added to the occasion and made it very special...
The memory of the brave lady policeman was dissed by this jerk and her family were not treated decently..
his behavior is shocking and rude and disgusting...
HEY !!! Maxine !!! Over here !!!
New Yorkers elected him. They made their bed, let them lie in it.
Besides, deFagio is gearing up for a run for POTUS. He'll fit right in O'bummer's mold, viz. vacationing instead of working.
De Blasio is nothing but a Commie jerk. This country is in trouble. Too many Commie jerks, and they vote.
Nope. You’d need to clean the voter rolls of the deceased DemonRat and illegal alien DemonRat voters first. I agree though, DeBlasio has snubbed the police numerous times BUT THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE.
Yep, exactly my thought. They had plenty of warnings about this guy and they went ahead and voted for him anyway. Now their city is on the brink of disaster, the subways and trains are a disaster, crime is through the roof, mentally ill are running amok everywhere in the streets, homelessness is up 40% and this guy is laughing it up taking trips on the taxpayer dime.
I don’t know about French or Italian but the closest I can think of is the German. BLASEN.....TO BLOW!
Some people feel bad for DeBlasio because his father died in a concentration camp. He fell out of a guard tower./s
