Literal Speech Police: De Blasio thinks it’s okay for the NYPD to confront you over hateful speech and take down your name.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has no problem with the NYPD acting like the speech police to help combat so-called hate crimes against Asian-Americans:
“Even if something is not a criminal case, a perpetrator being confronted by the city, whether it’s NYPD or another agency, and being told that what they’ve done was very hurtful to another person — and could, if ever repeated, lead to criminal charges — that’s another important piece of the puzzle,” de Blasio told reporters.
“That’s why we need these reports,” he said.
Asked how the so-called “confrontations” would work, de Blasio said the NYPD is already trained at doling out warnings.
“If someone has done something wrong, but not rising to a criminal level, it’s perfectly appropriate for an NYPD officer to talk to them to say, ‘that was not appropriate, and if you did that on a higher level, that would be a crime,’” he said.
De Blasio insisted the confrontations could have an “educating” or “sobering impact” on people. That’s why the NYPD needs reports.
He also said: “I assure you, if an NYPD officer calls you or shows up at your door to ask you about something you did, it makes you think twice. We need that.”
I say “so-called” because the ones the MSM reported had nothing to do with racism: Oakland, CA, and Georgia Spa Murders.
Literal speech police. Literally the speech police. De Blasio wants these reports so they can keep an eye on you.
Look how he ended his answer: “And part of it is to report everything, track everything, and anything that might be criminal, prosecute. And anything that’s not criminal, still follow up on aggressively, so people feel the presence of law enforcement in the city watching them to make sure this does not happen again.”
