In January, residents of Manhattan’s Upper East Side accused new mayor Bill de Blasio, a Brooklynite, of ordering the city’s sanitation department to direct resources away from their neighborhood during a snowstorm. The lack of snowplows on Park Avenue during the worst parts of the storm, they said, was a petty form of retribution for the district’s support of Republican Joe Lhota in the November 2013 mayoral election.
Huh. When Republican Chris Christie was accused of a similar instance of political retribution, the MSM made it national news for weeks. But when socialist Democrat Di Blasio is accused of doing the same sort of thing, well, you know how the MSM handled it.
Bupkus. Zero. See, hear, speak, write, and report no evil. Di Blasio is one of theirs.
It’s funny how it seems to work out like this just about every single time, isn’t it?
