I’m leading a coalition of human-rights activists and advocates for fiscal responsibility who have submitted an ad to the MTA to run the week before the election, telling the truth about the frontrunner in the New York mayoral race, Bill de Blasio. And the media is in a frenzy.
The ad is necessary because the mainstream media are not telling New Yorkers the disturbing details of de Blasio’s career, associations and plans for the city. And now, because of the mainstream media’s hatred for the truth and desire to get de Blasio into office, it has gone viral.
We held a press conference Thursday that was widely announced to expose the subversive, seditious and communist candidate for New York mayor. We exposed de Blasio’s Marxist and terrorist ties. Cliff Kincaid organized an intense debriefing on de Blasio’s subversive past. It was two-and-half hours packed with information, documentation and news. Here is an 84-page leave behind from the event.
Concerned New Yorkers attended, but there was no media present, with the exception of Jennifer Fermino from the New York Daily News. If a Soros-funded group like Media Matters or the Center for American Progress had announced that it was holding a press conference to expose Joe Lhota, there would have been a stampede.
Did Fermino report on any of the blockbuster research on de Blasio? Not a word. The media won’t cover the shady, subversive history of Bill de Blasio, aka Warren Wilhelm. They won’t ask him about Ortega, Castro, Arafat, etc., or what he was doing in Cuba, Nicaragua, etc.
But Fermino did report on our ad, busying herself not with looking into de Blasio’s positions and associations, but with trying to smear and insult me. She headlined her piece this way: “Subway’s Islam hater Pamela Geller slams ‘Red’ Bill’ de Blasio.” New York Magazine was just as bad, calling me the “subway uglifier” in an article titled: “Nobody Puts Pamela Geller in a Corner.”
No matter. New York Magazine is running our ad. It gets the message out. Pretty or not.
The objective of the Stop Red Bill ad campaign is to get the news that the media ignore out to the voter. They won’t cover it, and they preen about that. It’s funny. The media remind me of the hunchback who can’t see its own hunch. They are so biased, they practically boast about it.
Is it any wonder that the subversive Sandinista is leading in the polls by 50 points? De Blasio’s huge lead speaks to a larger problem: not just the low-information voter, but the no-information voter.
This is why we created the Stop Red Bill committee, and we will be running advertisements across the New York City transit system.
The ad reads:
STOP RED BILL
- He’ll endanger New Yorkers by stopping counter-terror surveillance programs
- He’ll wallop N.Y. businesses with crippling new taxes
- He partners with vicious terror-aligned foes of Israel
- He supported bloody communist terrorists in Central America
- He has called for the gagging of his political foes
Bill de Blasio has said that he will not allow surveillance of jihadi suspects and terror mosques. This, although two New Yorkers were charged with plotting jihad terror attacks in the last week. And since 9/11, there have been plots against the Brooklyn Bridge, the subway system, the Stock Exchange, Citigroup headquarters, the Garment District, the PATH train, JFK Airport, Long Island Railroad, synagogues in the Bronx and Manhattan, Times Square and more.
De Blasio has a great deal to hide: He has had a number of aliases and name changes. And it’s not surprising that he would want to cover up his past. He has aided the brutal communist Sandinistas and “Palestinian” jihadists, although he has scrubbed that from his website. He even supported the bloodthirsty President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.
Newly available documents from his years on the New York City Council show him interfering with the work of the Manhattan district attorney when a New York teacher named Steve Quester was facing prison for working with jihad terrorists in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Quester called suicide bombers “desperate and hopeless” and said that “all the heartbreak flows directly from Israel’s policy” of “occupying the Palestinian territories.” And he recently appeared at a Muslims for de Blasio rally with Linda Sarsour, who has called Zionism “racism.”
His plans to increase taxes are the death knell of the city. The fact is, nearly half this city’s job growth has come from health care and social services. Who’s going to pay for it if he kills the businessman?
It’s an uphill battle. But we will never stop telling the truth.
