Bill de Blasio Gets Fucking Re-elected For Mayor

He’s back…

New York, N.Y.

With fucking 22% of the registered voters, 1.1 million out of 5 million, the lowest turnout in recorded history that showed up on Election Day, Bill de “Faustio” Blasio got re-elected for Mayor of New York City with a pathetic 14% of the vote.

To those who didn’t vote, whom I partly empathize with because of the lack of coverage and the perceived weak field of opponents and to those that did vote for this arrogant stupid idiot, get ready for four more years of ineffectual and inefficient local government and batshit policies, for which you certainly seem content with under his last term. Meaning the transients who settled here just recently mostly in fucking Brooklyn and maybe the select few out of hundred of thousands who won the affordable housing lottery and got one of the few below market rate apts in the 421a towers that were built in the last 4 years. And certainly the caring neoliberals working in the real estate, banking and venture capital industries, commissioned sell-out artists, and owners of bars and restaurants and their sleepless obnoxious patrons.

To quote Republican opponent Nicole Malliotakis, who wound up with 28% of the vote, get ready for more pay to play, more corruption, more mismanagement, the erosion of quality of life and no improvements to a broken transit system. The latter for which he refuses to fund and would rather continue a petty, bogus feud with the governor over a funding diversion from a year ago.

Get ready for the approval of heinous costly boondoggles like the BQX and more crushing hyper-development. More gentrification and more homeless families. More preposterous street redesigns involving space hogging congestion making bike lanes and pedestrian plazas which only exist to provide corporations to hold obnoxious advertising events. Get ready for more disruption from the movie and TV industries that will have more free reign to suffocate streets and neighborhoods.

Get ready to vomit when de Faustio gives himself a raise stemming from his vote to unjustly overpay city council 32% more a year ago that stipulated the same amount if he got re-elected. Oh, and his wife will keep her pretend appointed job to combat mental illness and her 2 six-figure earning aides.

Get ready for more programs dropped on communities without their knowledge or even a notification/warning.

Get ready for more taxpayer dollar pilfering to his high-end lawyers by this re-elected jerk and his staff for the inevitable court hearings involving his initial hustling with Jona Rechnitz. That is if Norman Seabrook is found guilty. If not, de Faustio is the luckiest bastard in the nation right now. If he gets sentenced, it will open up the mayor, his aides, and his agent of the city Ross Offinger into a bigger case involving all the predatory developers.

Mostly get ready for more crime in the streets and more jadedness and indifference from local cops. For de Blasio and top brass of the NYPD will do everything to water down stats to keep the brittle backbone of the city’s economy, which consists of real estate and tourism solvent at the expense of safety and security for long-time residents, which continue to get undermined and ignored.

Get ready for more disinformation and no information involving this mayor’s civics, machinations and intentions, for his contempt for journalists and journalism will surely grow.

All this happened in just four years with this guy in city hall and will exacerbate with this underwhelming majority no-show victory. Worse, de Faustio is now empowered and more, in a passive bland way, dangerous, that he is now comfortable maligning people and flat out lying. Also, he is an ideologue, a selective servant to the 1% and fat donor checks, and to his cocktail party and political event friends first and a public servant second. A million miles away second.

Also, he won’t even be a full-time mayor, thanks to appointment of a dork city councilman’s invention of a night mayor. (Why not a morning mayor from during his elaborate commute to his gym in Brooklyn?)

His hollow, shallow victory means the normalization and legitimization of honest graft and tweeding. A victory mostly driven by fear by exploiting the spectre of Donald Trump and the loose relations to his opponents, via voting or interference by independent candidates. A result of voter apathy and passive acceptance of a broken system.

Acceptance meaning the last stage of dying. Which in politics in this century is the only stage. De Faustio’s victory and officials with morals and ethics like him and organizations that push them, in this case the DNC, gives credence to this grim theory.

On the bright side in these dark days, with this weak turnout, de Faustio doesn’t have a mandate, although he certainly thinks he does, being the delusional jerk he is. So there is a sliver of hope for the citizenry and even this city which is getting less recognizable every day, hour, minute and second. He can’t hide from the media and the people thanks to Jona’s testimonies. He won the right to run the city but he has absolutely no trust or even faith or respect from the majority of people, all 4.4 million of them.
