The Issue: Mayor Adams’ comments blaming the media for the fear of high crime in New York City.
Here we go again: another Democrat saying “Nothing to see here” when asked about a crisis (“Adams rips crime news,” July 13).
This time it’s s repeat offender, the delusional Mayor Adams, who blames the media for stoking fear about crime in the city.
Forget about the mass exodus of people who have left the city and headed south. Nope, it’s all a figment of your imagination.
Even idiotic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has come out and said he doesn’t think the subway is safe to ride. But Adams blames the 99.9% liberal media for another “manufactured” crisis.
It’s time for people in New York City to put the blame where it rightfully belongs. The rising crime rates, subway attacks, anti semitism, anti-Asian hatred — it’s all on you.
You continue to drink the Kool-Aid and vote for do-nothing Democrats, then act surprised when everything goes sideways.
Your continual, blind voting for the Democratic Party holds the rest of the state hostage.
Rep. Lee Zeldin gave Gov. Hochul a run for the money, but couldn’t overtake the New York City voting bloc.
Stop whining and think clearly the next time you get a chance to vote.
The number of unprovoked attacks on innocent individuals in New York City is disgraceful.
However, despite the attempts by conservatives to depict New York City as the exception, it is not.
It is clear that there is a nationwide culture of violence that must be addressed and not used as a political football to scare people.
A national program to reduce crime is essential. There must be strong efforts to provide proper resources for our courts, district attorneys and Legal Aid lawyers.
Law enforcement must be adequately funded and trained. In addition, there must be more funds for mental health and violence prevention. These changes should be acceptable to all.
The poll that shows New Yorkers in the grip of terror over rising crime suggests the city is not even close to the Camelot that Mayor Adams thinks it is. It more closely resembles the last scene in “Animal House.”
There’s the mayor playing the part of Kevin Bacon’s character, standing amid panic in the streets, yelling: “Remain calm! All is well!”
Meanwhile, the band of progressive ideologues running our City Council and state Legislature mindlessly march down a dead-end street, playing the same old tune of progressive “reforms.”
Bragg plays the role of the exasperated Dean Wormer. Despite all the chaos around him, nobody’s going to jail. All Bragg can offer is double-secret probation.
An honest answer to voters asking what went wrong would get the same reply Flounder got for lamenting the destruction of his brother’s car: “You f - - ked up. You trusted us.”
So apparently we only have the media to blame for the fear of crime in New York City. Who would have thought?
The mayor, district attorney, governor and City Council members all believe New Yorkers are stupid.
So when will this all stop? My guess is when one of these politicians’ family members is harmed.
The ordinary citizen is never their concern, but god forbid it happens to them. Then they will wake up to the problem they have created.
Hopefully, the citizens of this city will wake up and kick all these individuals out of office. I won’t hold my breath.
It’s nice to see The Post continue to warn us about the ever-increasing threats to city-dwellers’ safety.
The “walking dread,” as you call it, it is far too kind. Adams and the progressives have destroyed basic freedoms we all took for granted and let the roving miscreants take center stage.
Thanks, Adams, for the continued demise of Gotham, which the buffoon before you initiated.
