Mayor Joe Petty Urges SJW Mob To Protest To Make Worcester A Sanctuary City At City Council Meeting And It’s Gonna Be A Shitshow

I haven’t looked forward to a Worcester City Council meeting as much as I am tomorrow night’s meeting since Mosaic went down in flames. Last week the People’s Councilor Michael Gaffney put something on the agenda asking whether or not Worcester was declaring itself a sanctuary city, and whether or not we would be complying with federal law:
The resolution states: “Our City Council supports federal law and does not join other communities in declaring themselves sanctuary cities. We will always be welcoming of new immigrants and refugees to our city but only to those that follow our laws.”
Alright. So…..what’s the problem exactly? Why wouldn’t the City Council support federal law? Isn’t that what the Civil Rights movement was all about? Forcing southern states to abide by federal law? Now this is a bad thing because Worcester doesn’t like the law? Gaffney clearly says that we’re going to be welcoming of new immigrants and refugees who follow our laws. You have to be a pretty big assmunch to find fault in this common sense proposal.
More importantly, there’s a lot of money on the line here. In case you haven’t noticed, Trump doesn’t give a fuck. All that crazy stuff he promised in the election? Yea, he was serious. So Worcester and other municipalities are in danger of losing a lot of federal money if they go on record as being a sanctuary city. Every taxpayer in Worcester should be concerned about this. It doesn’t make you anti-immigrant. It just means you want our city to comply with the federal government in order to make sure your schools remain adequately funded and your roads get paved.
Look, it’s obvious what’s happening here. Gaffney saw that Marty Walsh, Joe Curtatone, and Alex Morse all declared their cities (Boston, Somerville, Holyoke) sanctuary cities. They went on record saying they’re not going to direct their police departments to do immigration background checks on criminals they arrest. Why? I have no idea. I’m assuming because it’s racist. After all, everything is racist in 2017. Everything.
But what Gaffney is trying to do is force Joe Petty to pick a side. Because Petty thinks he can get away with straddling the fence. Look what he said:
“I’m pretty upset about this,” Mr. Petty said “He’s creating an issue that doesn’t exist and putting people into fear that they’re going to be deported. I’m not going to give into that bigotry. It’s a shame what Donald Trump is doing on immigration and refugees.
“In Worcester, I’m responsible for everyone in this city,” he added. “I’m going to have everyone’s back. If we aren’t going to protect our immigrants, then you may as well take the Statue of Liberty, pack it up and send it back to France.”
Creating an issue that doesn’t exist? How is illegal immigration an issue that doesn’t exist? He can’t be serious. Has he been sleeping for the last year and half? Immigration is probably the biggest issue nationwide and it’s not even really close for second place.
But then he plays the “you’re a bigot” if you want people to have their backgrounds checked when they commit a crime card. Since when is that a bad thing? Every time I get pulled over they run by background check for warrants. Why shouldn’t we do the same for immigration? It’s not like we’re going door to door asking to see people’s papers. This ain’t Nazi Germany. We’re only checking people who commit crimes. Undocumented immigrants who obey the law can pretty much keep living here no problem. We just want the bad guys gone. Ya know, because crime is bad.
But more importantly Petty is obviously trying to say we’re a sanctuary city without actually declaring it. He’s not dumb. He knows we need the money, but he also knows a lot of his supporters are SJW’s, and they expect him to declare this a sanctuary city. So he’s trying to avoid the issue at all costs and now he’s butthurt that Gaffney won’t let him do that anymore. That’s why Uncle Jimmy McGovern coached him up to say, “
If we aren’t going to protect our immigrants, then you may as well take the Statue of Liberty, pack it up and send it back to France.”
In other words – he’s trying to avoid saying the word “sanctuary city,” but his actions as Mayor clearly indicate that he’s treating Worcester as if it’s a sanctuary city. As Gaffney points out, making Worcester a sanctuary city will disproportionately affect the most vulnerable amongst us:
“It is unfortunate for our lawful immigrants, refugees and native-born Americans that Mayor Petty doesn’t have their back when it comes to ensuring our city is safe,” Mr. Gaffney said. “His callous disregard for the potential loss of federal monies that will disproportionately harm the neediest and most vulnerable among us is unacceptable.”
Newsflash – Gaffney said right in the agenda item that we should protect our immigrants. Just not the ones who are here without documentation and STILL commit a crime, rather than just lay low. Because that’s what I would do if I was undocumented. I’d lay low and avoid committing crimes at all costs.
To make matters worse Petty basically called any Gaffney supporter a “cheap seat”:
In an interview Friday, Mr. Petty said his City Council colleague is creating an issue that doesn’t exist, and accused Mr. Gaffney of “playing to the cheap seats” off the coattails of the new president, Donald J. Trump.
Gee, I wonder who paid for this travel arrangements down there? Of course we all know why he went there – he got called in by the Godfather Uncle Jimmy and told how to handle this meeting on Tuesday.
And in a completely inappropriate move the Mayor sent out an email to all city employees urging them to meet at City Hall before the meeting to protest Gaffney:
Pretty sure that violates the City Charter. Just sayin.
He’s basically urging a mob to show up and call Gaffney a racist because Gaffney is making him pick a side. And there’s a Facebook page for the protest with hundreds of people saying they’re going. I’m sure they’ll all be reasonable and fair, and won’t use baseless ad hominem attacks towards anyone who disagrees with them. I’m sure they’ll stay on topic and won’t turn it into a black lives matter potluck SJW dinner. This is what they’re known for doing. And look whose leading the charge:
Ahh yes, Dante Comparetto. The School Committee candidate who was urging kids to skip school last week.
Awesome. This is perfect for Gaffney. If Petty chooses to align himself with these fools (he already has) then he’s basically telling the normal people who voted for him that he’s going full SJW. And you never go full SJW unless you wanna become Sarai Rivera.
All you need to know about these people is that this is what happens when you ask them what’s wrong with Gaffney’s resolution:
“Stay home.” They’re not looking for people who ask questions. They’re looking for sheep who like to shout hippie buzzwords.
My question is, who’s voting for this on the City Council? Because if you vote against this, you’re saying that you don’t support obeying federal law. You’re saying that you’re willing to give up millions and millions of federal dollars that would go directly to our most needy citizens. You’re boning the taxpayers, and you’re doing so because you’ve abandoned moderation and joined the SJW parade of idiots.
I know two of the 11 that are siding with Petty:
Typical of those two useless dolts. So that’s three including Petty. Sarai Rivera is obviously a no vote, so that’s four. Kate Toomey is pretty useless so she’ll probably make five. We know Gaffney and Lukes will vote yes, which leaves only four Councilors unsure:
Mo Bergman, Tony Economou, George Russell, and Gary Rosen.
Rosen will probably join Gaffney. The other three I don’t know. It’s really up to them. If they all vote the way the majority wants them to vote then they’ll vote yes and this will pass. If they don’t, then Turtleboy is gonna have to destroy them politically in November. Because this guy right here is rumored to be running for City Council:
His name is Justin Sleeper. He’s from Cambridge Street. He’s young, successful, and more likable than most of the dolts currently occupying space at City Hall. And we’re obviously gonna get behind him. Voting against this resolution will be a great way for him to destroy you in November.
The bottom line is that Gaffney supporters should show up in force tomorrow. McGovern is actually shipping people in from Amherst and Northampton. That’s how desperate they are. Show up in your Turtleboy gear or your Gaffney shirts and let them know that you’re not gonna be bullied by a bunch of granola eating pussies.
See ya tomorrow night.
