Mayor Richie Rich

I concur with reader Yitzchok Bernstein’s criticism of Mayor Bloomberg over his initial refusal to postpone the New York City Marathon despite the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy (Letters, Nov. 9.)

Once again the mayor revealed his elitist essence. Mr. Mayor, there are some of us who had to get down on our hands and knees and dig out from under Sandy. I didn’t have electricity or heat or a toilet. There were downed electrical wires and trees all around. There was looting taking place. Was it normal to even consider diverting city resources to the marathon runners?

Events like the marathon may give Manhattan liberals a thrill but they mean nothing to those of us working-class nobodies who not only had no cake but were dangerously short on the basics.

Mayor Richie Rich simply is incapable of thinking like most of us.

Liberals In The Tank

Re: “Another Dan Rather Moment for CBS News?” (editorial, Nov. 9):

It has long been apparent that The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS and other mainstream media outlets are in the tank for most any position or candidate on the left.

Your commentary was spot on regarding the suppression by “60 Minutes” of a video clip that would have documented that President Obama “misspoke” when he claimed to have referred to the Benghazi murders as terrorism during his Rose Garden statement the day after they occurred. Those who work at liberal media outlets are entitled to their opinions. But they should not substitute opinion for fact or be given a free pass when they mislead the public.

Girlfriend and double cop-killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley apparently was influenced by Islamic extremism.

Thus, despite the increasingly serious problems for the mayor arising out of the current anti-police protests, Mr. de Blasio apparently will be cut no slack by those who seem to be aiming for a significant role in running the city from the streets and who will do whatever they can to prevent their momentum from ebbing.

Also left unsaid was the fact that the menorah and its oil were in the Beit HaMikdash, which of course was located on Har HaBayit – the Temple Mount that present-day Muslims claim as their own.

Despite strong pressure to throw the book at the accused, Mr. Thompson allowed him to plead guilty to assault.

A revolution is taking place between good and evil; light and darkness. Make the light activism!

We see pictures of mosques, monuments for terrorists, illegal schools, and hundreds of apartments being built on Jewish land without repercussions. We are losing Jewish property, so it is up to us to protect it.
