Even in a liberal bastion like New York City, which was liberal enough to vote a socialist into office as mayor, political moves come with a cost.
You can’t please one group without displeasing another. Bill de Blasio is finding this out the hard way.
The New York Post’s Andrea Peyser writes:
De Blasio announced last month that he’s boycotting the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, set to run up Fifth Avenue March 17, in solidarity with homosexuals, who are prohibited from carrying banners, waving signs or wearing lapel pins that identify their sexual persuasions.
Public Advocate Letitia James will be a no-show. Any City Council member who dares march won’t wave a city government sign, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito decreed.
