NYC Mayor Calls Supreme Court ‘Right Wing Extremists’ for Blocking Eviction Moratorium

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio ripped the United States Supreme Court Thursday night after the judges struck down the Biden Administration’s extension on eviction moratorium, labeling the justices a “group of right wing extremists.”

“A group of right wing extremists just decided to throw families out of their homes during a global pandemic. This is an attack on working people across our country and city. New York won’t stand for this vile, unjust decision,” de Blasio posted on Twitter.

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that any eviction moratorium must be approved by Congress.

“If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue, Congress must specifically authorize it,” wrote the Justices.

“The Biden administration is disappointed that the Supreme Court has blocked the most recent CDC eviction moratorium while confirmed cases of the Delta variant are significant across the country,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said late Thursday. “As a result of this ruling, families will face the painful impact of evictions, and communities across the country will face greater risk of exposure to COVID-19. In light of the Supreme Court ruling and the continued risk of COVID-19 transmission, President Biden is once again calling on all entities that can prevent evictions — from cities and states to local courts, landlords, Cabinet agencies — to urgently act to prevent evictions.”

    I half expect various courts to nit-pick eviction cases to death, or just outright ignore SCOTUS’s decision. Yes, that would be illegal, but when did that become a problem for authoritarians?

    “You can’t do that. That’s illegal.”

    DeBlasio is a long time communist and NYers seem to want that in their leaders. Of course, a lot of our immigrants land in NY first and those who stay there tend to come from socialist (France), Chavista, Peronista, Stalinist, Maoist, Progre (Spain) and Islamic countries, so that’s what they’re accustomed to. Rinse, repeat.

    Tired yet of the never-ending stream of strangers with bad politics being brought here by our traitor billionaires to work jobs instead of Americans?

    All the Supreme Court said is that Congress must create a law. Well Congress, go ahead and see the bloodbath you will experience by your action.

    Why is no one questioning the fact that a vast majority of the people facing eviction were making more on unemployment than they were when they were working? After all they managed to pay rent without the bonus 12-24 hundred dollars a month.

    Ya know , I bet Cuomo knows a LOT . You think he is just gonna flame out while the Democrats soar ? You won’t even see it coming you tin plated little dictator . You should have studied a little more auto mechanics and a little less political science because many of YOU are also going to end up seeing the undercarriage of a bus. He learned well how to stir a covert shit storm to put a plan into place. Enjoy sleeping with the fishes…De Blabio
