"a bully, mean-spirited, and he rules through fear and intimidation." Former NY Mayor David Dinkins.
Giuliani at home:
Brings his mistress to the mayors mansion to stay while the wife and children live there with him. The Mayor's then wife seeks an order from the courts preventing him to do so, and the court grants her a restraining order. Just ONE of the reasons he finds himself estranged from his 2 children, both of whom have made it clear they will not campaign for him. He dated his mistress for one year before his wife was aware of it, she became aware of it when he announced it to the media. The same went for his decision to file for divorce.
Giuliani as Mayor :"Zero Tolerance":
" - FREEDOM IS NOT A CONCEPT IN WHICH PEOPLE CAN DO ANYTHING THEY WANT, BE ANYTHING THEY CAN BE. FREEDOM IS ABOUT AUTHORITY. FREEDOM IS ABOUT THE WILLINGNESS OF EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING TO CEDE TO LAWFUL AUTHORITY A GREAT DEAL OF DISCRETION ABOUT WHAT YOU DO AND HOW YOU DO IT." - Mayor Giuliani, quoted in the New York Times, March 17, 1994. "
Giuliani goes after the homeless:
He tries to make new rules for homeless shelters, that unless homeless people have a job after 30-90 days, they have to leave. The courts say no.
At the same time, he made it a crime to stay in the streets, the homeless were tapped with batons and told they must "keep walking". (I saw this dozens of times, and it was heartbreaking. I've even seen a police officer apologize for having to do it). Once instructed to keep walking if they did not comply they were to be put in jail. But there were not enough shelters, and Giuliani would not fund any more. The homeless rejected by shelters were given a token for the subway and told to go to the shelters in east NewYork (ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACES IN NYC. Women and children too). If they did not go to a shelter and had children, he said the children were to be taken from their parents and put in foster care.
He made huge cuts in the education spending as soon as he got into office. Hey moron, if you don't want to fund the poor, you make sure they are educated and can fend for themselves. It's the public education system and you should not keep people from getting a decent education.
I have never referred to a politician as a fascist in my life, but this man is a RACIST, FASCIST PIG. Here's just one example: In 2002 there was to be a black youth rally in harlem. he tried to stop the rally taking place. Once again, the courts said no, he did not have the right. So what did this fascist asshole do? Police on rooftops, flew a helicopter over the rally the entire time, put 100's of cops in riot gear around the rally and shut down trains to harlem. The rally was to end at 4:pm, at 3:55 dozens of police physically disperse the crowd. This bull---- cost nyc $1 million dollars in overtime. Rudolf Giuliani is a DISGUSTING FASCIST WHO DOES NOT BELONG IN THE WHITE HOUSE or anywhere else in politics. In October 1995, Giuliani ejected Yasser Arafat, leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, from a concert at New York's Lincoln Center, which was part of the UN's 50th anniversary celebrations.
Another example, his now infamous decency panel to approve art, b/c: "The First Amendment is not absolute".
In 2002 my friend and I went to our favorite club. There was now furniture where the dance floor used to be and signs that read "no dancing allowed". Why? Giuliani reached up his ass back to 1926 and pulled out an old law that places would need a cabaret license if 3 people were moving rhythmically ("dancing"). He had police raid small bars, if people were caught dancing, the bar was padlocked for weeks. And he would not allow places to buy licenses. um fascist anyone? We finally find a place and peer inside and couldn't believe we saw dancing.
oh yeah, and the cops were really scary. someone in my precinct had half is head shaved. Half. Like a mohawk, but with no hair on one side and all the other hair the other.
I was going to write more, but the more I think about it the more I remember the 8 years he was Mayor the more irritated I get. And quite frankly, I don't want to think of this scumbag anymore. he's gone and everything he did is falling by the wayside. So f him, he's not going to win the nomination, I'm not worried about it anymore.
