Bloomberg Flees Rockaway St. Patrick’s Parade After Locals Boo Him
We hope someone opened up a 64 oz. bottle of soda just to annoy him.Mayor Bloomberg was booed yesterday as he walked in the annual St. Patrick’s Parade in the hurricane-ravaged Rockaways.
The jeers grew so loud toward the end of the Queens parade that mayoral candidate and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn appeared to break away from the mayor to march separately.
A spokesman for Quinn later said she always intended to walk separately from the mayor.
A bit more:
“We’ve been dying down here, up to our ears in muck trying to rebuild, get back to a regular life,” one heckler told The Post.
“For the politicians to come down here and try to take our celebration and make it their thing . . . it’s disgusting.”
And Chuck the Schmuck Schumer got some lovin' too:
Revelers heckled Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer after he cheered through a bullhorn, “Let’s hear it for the Rockaways.”
“Send money, pal. Send money!” one heckler yelled back. “Talk is cheap!”
Nice to see We The People push back against our minders; those cultural elites that know how we should live. Schumer is a classic case — went into politics straight out of law school. Completely out of touch…Posted by DaveH at March 3, 2013 08:34 PM
