Rudy Giluliani Smashes NY Mayor De Blasio, Says Rise In Prostitution, Crime Is His FaultMichael Cantrell
According to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giluliani, the current spike in open-air prostitution and other crimes revealed in a recent report is all due to the “socialist” reign of current Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“It is hard to watch that and not be emotional about it because before I was mayor, I lived through the terrible 27 years of 1,000 murders per year to 2,000 murders per year,” Giuliani stated during an interview on Newsmax’s “John Bachman Now.” “The last time this happened, it happened in 1968 and it lasted for 27 years because we had Democrat mayors for 27 years.”
An explosive cover story in Friday’s New York Post detailed how traffic along a four-block stretch in Brooklyn is filled with women, often wearing little more than lingerie, that are plying their trade on weekends in an “open-air prostitution market” as their pimps remain nearby.take our poll - story continues below
The situation is happening, said Giuliani, because de Blasio is an “extraordinarily bad mayor” who is “soft on crime.”
“He is about the worst mayor the city has ever had,” Giuliani went on to say. “People say well, prostitution. Why get all upset about prostitution? You can have different moral views about it, but prostitution leads to the degradation of an area all the property values go out … stores move out and the pimps move in. These prostitutes are not working on their own they are working for people who we’ll call pimps. They are extremely dangerous criminals. They all have guns … beating the heck out of women and some of them shoot, have shot, and killed people. So this is not the kind of a benign, you know crime. This is a very, very dangerous, very vicious, very violent crime, and if it’s not controlled, it takes over that neighborhood. And drugs come right in. Mobs and gangs come right in. This is disgraceful that de Blasio let this happen.”
The reports also come as the United States is on an “express train to socialism, and in New York, “we are probably there already,” said Giuliani.
“New York is a one-party government,” he went on to add. “New York has a significant amount of corruption … it’s a city now that once again is like Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit a high crime city. We had the distinction of being the safest large city in America, something like 17 years in a row. It took me two years to get there. I kept it there. (Michael) Bloomberg kept it there.”
The reason we’re seeing crime on the rise in major cities across the country is thanks to so many local governments giving in to the demands of the “defund the police” movement, which is just an offshoot of the Black Lives Matter group that is responsible for destructive and violent protests we witnessed last summer.
When you reduce law enforcement budgets, you have to cut officers off the force, which means less police presence on the street, as well as having fewer people available to go out on calls.
We can flip this all around if we stop the madness and just fund our local police forces.
