The NY Post reports on Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comments on Black Lives Matter. They write:
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that Black Lives Matter is a “Marxist organization” that “has been planning to destroy the police for three years.”
The Republican and lawyer for President Trump told reporters at the White House he’s outraged by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to paint “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue near Trump Tower.
“Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization run by three avowed Marxists — go check. Black Lives Matter has been planning to destroy the police for three years. They’ve finally gotten stupid Democrat mayors to agree with them,” Giuliani said.
The former mayor, remembered for “cleaning up” the city between 1994 and 2001, said de Blasio and other Democrats are responsible for lawlessness.
“Right now murder is up 58 percent under the regressive Democrat mayor who is typical of Democrat mayors all over the country. They are a disaster. They are a danger to their people,” he said.
De Blasio is moving to cut $1 billion from the NYPD operating budget and another half-billion from its capital budget in response to nationwide protests against the killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.
