De Blasio cancels Thanksgiving parade as more Democrats abandon him

Another day, another Democrat ripping New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, this time for his decision to cancel the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade over COVID concerns.

Democrats across the city are trying desperately to separate themselves from de Blasio, who looks more and more like he’s in reelection trouble, as city business leaders, politicians and the press abandon him over his far-left policies.

“He kind of has these feckless responses,” Seth Barron, the associate editor at the City Journal told Tucker Carlson. “The Macy’s Day parade is a good example — this is an extremely popular national event. If we had it, it would signal ‘hey New York City wants tourists — maybe we can’t have everyone now but we are open for business [and] this is what the future holds.’”

But instead, de Blasio has announced that the parade will be canceled, while he allows communist protests every weekend at Washington Square Park.

“In Washington Square Park every weekend, Refuse Fascism — which is part of the Revolutionary Communist [movement] — has a protest party with a DJ and hundreds of people drinking, doing drugs and dancing — Bill de Blasio doesn’t even notice it — so he is implicitly and tacitly permitting it,” said Barron.

“Barron said de Blasio often targets ‘cheerful and wholesome’ entities because patrons of those types of things tend to ‘obey the law,’” Barron added according to Fox News.  

Rather than just cancel the event, Macy’s has agreed to hold an event for television-only, that will be televised the day after Thanksgiving.

“Under the unique challenges of these unparalleled times, we felt it was important to continue this cherished holiday tradition that has been the opening act to the holiday season for generations of families,” said Susan Tercero, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

School bands and those under age 18 will not be allowed to participate in the parade.

“The number of participants, including performers and workers, is being cut to around 25 percent, Macy’s said,” according to the New York Post.

Barron is not the first Democrat to abandon de Blasio.

Last week, Rep. Max Rose (D) from Staten Island, running in a tight reelection campaign, made sure constituents understood that he has no interest in de Blasio remaining as Mayor of New York City.

In a short, 15-second reelection advertisement, Rose called de Blaiso the “worst mayor in the history of New York.”  

He previously criticized the schedule to reopen New York schools as prayer, not a plan.  

“We need a plan, not just a prayer,” Rose tweeted. “We need real leadership, but unfortunately we have @NYCMayor instead.”

    Yes, I saw it coming. He talks tough, motions with air of superiority, etc. But that is a façade. His record, which leaves little to be desired of, speaks louder than words.
    And now he canceled an American Tradition that has been going on for almost a century. Adding logs to the fire isn’t he.

    Comrade Deblasio never was a Democrat. He is a communist and a socialist plain and simple. New York, do your homework!
