NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Urges New Yorkers to Snitch on Each Other

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, still recovering from a presidential run that almost no one remembers, wants his residents to tattle on each other for breaking social distancing rules.

The idea of spying and then snitching on one’s neighbors seems like something straight out of George Orwell’s novel 1984, or the USSR at the height of the Cold War. Unfortunately, it’s a scene likely to play out in New York City thanks to de Blasio’s actions.

In a recent video circulating on social media, the NYC mayor makes it clear that anyone who sees a group of people hanging out together, people standing too close to each other in line, a store with “too many” people in it or some other, similar scenario should immediately take a photo of those involved and text it to 311. Mayor de Blasio then offered his full assurances that the government would immediately sweep in and deal with the situation.

This is disturbing for obvious reasons. New Yorkers have enough problems as is without having to worry about being ratted out by an overly-eager snitch just because they got closer than six feet to a friend, relative, or a stranger standing in line. No one wants police to visit their home just because they decided to invite a couple of friends or relatives over for the day.

Encouraging rampant snitching among New Yorkers isn’t only morally questionable — it’s entirely unnecessary. While the city was hard-hit by the COVID-19 virus, the curve has been flattened and is now trending downward. The guidelines already issued have done the job and it’s now time to look for ways to get the economy back on track without putting vulnerable people at risk. It’s not time to encourage excessive paranoia.

The government should have better things to do with its time. Sadly, Mayor de Blasio simply appears to see this as another opportunity to grow the power of government within his jurisdiction.

Savvy journalists, activists, and pundits have long warned that there are politicians who are more than happy to use the COVID-19 pandemic to limit basic civil rights, create a more powerful surveillance state, and grab unprecedented authority over American citizens. These scenarios are playing out across the nation as people are arrested for organizing protests or even just telling friends on social media that they have the coronavirus.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s call for rampant citizen snitching takes matters to a new low. It’s no wonder why even far-left progressive voters refused to give him a time of day when he was running for president.

    • Correct Tim. They would call out the Jewish people in hiding if they saw them and then the SS would arrest them. Where is our AG? Have we already lost all of our constitutional rights?

    • Yeah, they made a movie (forgot the name) about what was going on in Germany before WWII, same type of stuff this deblasio is doing.

    • Hume Cronyn in the movie “The Seventh Cross” utters a famous line concerning the Gestapo. “I learned something last night, they only know what you tell them” (paraphrased). Tell the Fascists nothing and you impede Fascism.
      Great movie for these times.

  1. Just imagine what things would be like if DeBlasio , God forbid, ever got to be the President. All that power would surly go to his head as he formed his very own “SS”. Heil DeBlasio.

  2. Welcome to the Democratic/Communist Party. Now they want to do what the NAZI German Fascist Party did from 1933~!1946 under Adolf Hitler~
    NYC Mayor Bill de Blasoi is just doing that today~~But again it is a slow teaching because The Teachers do not teach that part of History any more!
    He is such a sick MF!!!!!

  3. Shades of Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Cuba & Venezuela’s society, North Korea, Iran, China, etc a socialist society is concerned with government enforcement and control and the Democratic Party of today is pushing hard to get that control over our country and the American people. Wake up and work to take this country back from Hollywood and socialist political leaders!

  4. Isn’t this the same mayor that argued with the Governor that New York City did not need to stay inside under quarantine, thus leading it to become the number one epicenter?

  5. Hey Comrade mayor ! Do you want the people of NYC tattling on you when you leave Gracie Manison to go to your non essential job of mayor of a semi deserted of NYC. Should NYPD give you ,your limo drive and you police security detail a ticket of $1,000 dollars for violation of your very own “stay at home” edict hum.

  6. Those closest to governor will snitch on him and each other first just to look like a goody two shoe face ??
    Real gestapo mentally…seriously!
    Where is your freedom?

  7. Feel sorry for the person who aims a phone at me when I am conversing with my family or standing only 5 feet in back of a shopper. It will take a whole team of proctologists to recover that phone!!

  8. Those that do not respect or understand history are doomed to repeat it. We have seen this same kind of tyrannical authoritarian leaders before, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro, Hugo. Now in America it is DeBlasio, Whitmer, Cooper, Northam, Newsom and a host of others….ALL DEMOCRATS.

    • How did the people elect DeBlasio. New Yorkers always say they are so smart. Vote him out of office. I live in Arizona and was a “transplant”from Illinois. when Az won the World Series over New York mean things were said about the so-called Unsophisticated Az people I have no pity for New York. They are a bankrupted state. I am shocked that so many Jewish people vote for the leaders that run New York. I am a Jew. My words probably will mean nothing to the public. But I am satisfied that I could unload my true feelings. sally c.

  9. DeBlasio smells to high heavens…did any fly landed on his mouth or face while announcing the “snitcher’s awards”?

  10. Well this sounds just like Hitler. I am old enough to remember when the children were brainwashed by Hitler to even snitch on their parents. Is that what we are coming to? Parents will be afraid to talk in front of their children or even friends. What a sad thing for America.

  11. That man is a pig (no offensive all you NYC police officers). Sorry, but that’s all I have to say about this fool. Bring back Rudy!
