I spoke a great deal on yesterday’s Tammy Radio that the lack of city response in New York to snow catastrophe was an inevitable and direct result of incompetent and lazy liberals and unions. I had no idea that it was even worse than I imagined. It is now revealed that the unions deliberately slowed down the recovery effort in a budget protest. It’s one thing to not feel compelled to work hard because you have a protected job and there’s no reason to put yourself out, and quite another to deliberately not clear streets and snarl efforts at the cleanup as a statement about how much money you may or may not be getting. People, including at least one infant, died because of emergency services inability to reach people for hours at a time. Any worker who did this, and the union bosses who knew, should be brought up on manslaughter charges. This is the evil liberalism generates–maybe New Yorkers will wake up and demand an end to the malignantly narcissistic liberalism that’s destroying their city and their lives.
Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts — a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for emergency-services vehicles, The Post has learned.
Miles of roads stretching from as north as Whitestone, Queens, to the south shore of Staten Island still remained treacherously unplowed last night because of the shameless job action, several sources and a city lawmaker said, which was over a raft of demotions, attrition and budget cuts.
“They sent a message to the rest of the city that these particular labor issues are more important,” said City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Queens), who was visited yesterday by a group of guilt-ridden sanitation workers who confessed the shameless plot…New York’s Strongest used a variety of tactics to drag out the plowing process — and pad overtime checks — which included keeping plows slightly higher than the roadways and skipping over streets along their routes, the sources said.
The snow-removal snitches said they were told to keep their plows off most streets and to wait for orders before attacking the accumulating piles of snow.
