During the Second World War, to name but one of many modern conflicts,

Nazi spies were seen in a particularly dim view. Operating by stealth and

devoid of the markings of regular military forces, they were pernicious,

deceitful and dangerous in the extreme. You could easily mistake them for one

of your own. And yet their sole purpose was to take you out. Terms that really

should be found on the resume of New York City mayoral candidate, Eric


While Adams lounges on a Democratic ticket as a matter of political

expediency, his progressive credentials are conspicuous by their absence. In a

city with an increasingly left-leaning outlook, Adams bucks that trend by

representing not only old-school, old-style deferential Democratic principles,

such as being pro-police and pro-business regardless, but he has also been a

registered Republican in his time. With that in mind, in 1999, he accorded

himself the title of being a “conservative Republican.” So, it comes as no

surprise that he has previously made the preposterous claim that a sizeable

number of Black New Yorkers are secret Republicans. Something that is

palpably untrue to even the most limited political commentator. Nice try Mr.

Adams, but completely deluded and detached from reality at the same time.

Yet there’s more, lest we forget. Adams has previously expressed admiration

for none other than Trump-stooge, failed attorney and leaking hair-dye anti-

super star Rudy Giuliani. Not only can you judge the character of someone by

the company that they keep, you can pretty much do the same with previous

New York City mayors that you praise.

Or how about Adams reverse racism of calling on those who wished to move

from the likes of Ohio or Wisconsin, to cease and desist for fear of adding to

the “gentrification” of the city. It is then more than obvious that Adams,

despite being a Black person, plays the race-card, and does so both ways,

whenever he thinks it fits his malicious political agenda the best. If

opportunism could take up human form, it would show itself as Eric Adams.

Then there is the real cherry on the Adams political cake. And that’s stop and

frisk. Despite the inevitable incidences of racial profiling that that brings,

Adams is a true believer in this pseudo-fascist policing practice. Adams has

previously expressed to CBS New York the following about stop and frisk:

“Great tool. We should never have removed stop and frisk.”

That’s just fine and dandy, until such time as you pause to reflect on the fact

that every totalitarian / authoritarian regime have also implemented their own

versions of stop and frisk. New York City is the bastion of real American

freedom, based on any number of values that are the antithesis of Eric Adams

– inclusivity, decency, a brash but humble approach to life and above all, not

discriminating against people on the way that they look in terms of policing,
