Curtis Sliwa throws his beret and onions in the race for Mayor

NY Post

 He’s throwing his red beret in the ring.

Guardian Angels founder and WABC talk-radio shock jock Curtis Sliwa plans to run for mayor in 2021, he told The Post.

“I am the only candidate with the onions to take back the city,” Sliwa, 65, told The Post. “I have the street cred. I have bled in the streets. I’ve given seven lives. I have two left. I’ll use them for the City of New York.”

Sliwa re-registered from a Reform Party member to Republican last month and would run on the GOP line, though he is yet to officially file paperwork to run.

A lifelong city resident who fires quips and zingers in his Brooklynese accent, Sliwa launched the crime-fighting Guardian Angels’ group 40 years ago to patrol the subways and the streets in the days when Gotham was overrun by crime.

He says he now worries the dark days are coming back because of soft-on crime Democratic policies, citing in particular the state’s new bail-reform law, which the NYPD claims is responsible for this year’s spike in crimes.

“It took us a long time to crawl out of the belly of the beast of the 1970s through 1990s. Bill de Blasio and the Democrats are bringing us back in,” said Sliwa.

Sliwa’s platform includes ditching the mayor’s security detail and put more cops in uniform to fight crime. He’d also restore “pro-active” foot patrols and encourage more voluntary patrols like the Guardian Angels to work with the NYPD.

He also wants to keep open and refurbish Rikers Island and thwart plans to open jails in the boroughs, as well as opening more psychiatric facilities to aid mentally ill homeless people — calling it an “absolute sin” to leave them in the streets.

How does his relationship with Katz and their kids play out? He politically tells 'em "no" and she tells 'em "yes"?

"NeverSliwa.com" WHY NOT?

Anything is better than the garbage now in office. AND he intends to NOT sell RIKERS to the Rich and Famous developers to make into a gated community for foreigners who can afford to spend $1 million to get a green card for themselves and their spouses and underage children who we will be responsible for educating. And tackling the homeless problem along with bringing back Mental Hospitals. We absolutely need them and it's about time!

What have we got to lose?

The legally separated crime family ring that PLAYS together——BE-TRAYS together!

As long as there continues to be a systemic, openly practiced, padded, city and state government 'Culture of Corruption, Graft and Never-ending Greed,' then there will ALWAYS be a roundup of hustling, third rate players like Bombastic Baby Mama Melinda (the de facto prosecutor with ZERO prosecution experience), and her former 'Boy Toy/Man Child,' Curtis 'SLY-wa,' to which I correctly refer to this government 'Hustling-and-Hassling' duo as: CRIMES WITHOUT CRIMINALS!——and, they haven't EVEN approached the top rungs of City Hall corruption that is now unprecedented (throughout the annals of corruption within City Hall history, since the long ago days of Tammany Hall and Boss Tweed)!

The NEW and DEVOLVED, husband-and-NOT-SO-publicly-elected wife team is: 'Tall & Stupid' shithead, a/k/a Bill de BLASS-hole, and his freeloading government-siphoning 'Welfare QUEEN,' who never met a government perk, sweetheart deal or outright, publicly unauthorized power grab (to buttress her soon to be halted bid for Brooklyn Borough President——YET another vacuous, 'ALL PAY and NO WORK,' paper tiger position for which Czarina Chirlane is pitifully underqualified)——that she didn't have her hand out to greedily snatch up (out of the hands of hardworking, ACTUAL working, 'Taxation WITHOUT Representation' taxpayers)!

What? THIS IS NEW???

ALAS, it’s ALL an OPENLY practiced government crime family ring syndicate of epic, humanitarian fail——and, the public be damned!

What? THIS IS NEW???

“Government is a disease masquerading as its own cure.” ——Robert Le Favre

“You can fool ALL of the people some of the time, and if you do it just once——it lasts four years.” ——Alfred E. Neuman

“The system cannot be fixed by the system.” ——Tom Morello

“The media are the propaganda arm of the very wealthy.” ——Brian Emo

“Nobody in the world, nobody in history has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.” ——Assata Shakur

“The Earth isn’t dying. It is being killed. And, the people who are killing it have names and addresses.” ——Utah Phillips

“This planet is obviously being used as an insane asylum by other planets.” ——George Bernard Shaw

Keep people as slaves and pets LONG enough—and, eventually they will SEE their kidnappers as saviors.

Scientists find link between people impressed by wise-sounding, 'profound' quotes and low intelligence

Ever get annoyed by people on social media who share 'profound' quotes, or use meaningless, intelligent-sounding soundbites in arguments?

A new study has shown that there is a link between these people and low intelligence.

It found that those who are receptive to pseudo-profound, intellectual-sounding 'bulls***' are less intelligent, less reflective, and more likely to be believe in conspiracy theories, the paranormal and alternative medicine.

i'm surprised at the pushback i'm seeing in the comments
have you seen the alternatives who have already announced?
Not to mention the slime currently in office?

No one is perfect but he would absolutely put us in a better direction than the other clowns, and start to reverse the damage from BdB.

Sometimes I wonder what you (the Queens Crap Community) really want.
Certainly no shortage of complaints

I would gladly vote for him. I think he would oppose a lot of the insane, and dangerous, policies that we are now living with, such as bond reform, the NYPD being directed not to enforce the laws, and public schools not protecting the victims, but the bullies. Curtis, my vote is waiting for you!

While Sliwa is not the best choice, but I take my chance with him, unfortunately knowing how stupid people vote in NYC (we have too many of them), Corey Johnson is going to win.

Sliwa will need to go to the gym, cut back on the sugar, soda, the bagels and donuts, to do that Superman pose. LOL. What a poser. Seems like Trump is affecting our politics so much that more unqualified idiots with big personalities and very few true qualifications are entering political office.
Trump so far has not achieved a SINGLE thing he promised the MAGA crowd. There is no wall, no mass deportation of illegal immigrants(was walking around my old neighborhood and I am one of the few people who speak English), the manufacturing base is still crumbling and the only jobs in his "greatest economy" ever are low paying service jobs. Working at a fast food place isn't going to cut it in a city this expensive.
Sliwa sure showing off that big belly. He can easily win a pizza eating contest. Doubt he could do a 5k marathon.

Re Trump promises: Don't forget he refused to sign the TPP and renegotiated NAFTA to the less terrible USMCA. I'm not a huge fan, but the TPP was a dangerous document that would lessen our sovereignty and ship even more jobs overseas. Sanders was also opposed, while Clinton was all for it.

Hey Trumptard,
Walls actually work, ask the Greeks and Ukrainians, they are both second world countries and were able to build walls to keep their borders secure from illegal immigrants. The richest nation in the world is still debating it. And Trump had a perfect window of opportunity to get it started when Republicans controlled all three chambers of government. But he did not.
He also could have rehauled the immigration system to make people who have beneficial skills have priority over a migrant farm laborer.
Space Force???!! LOL you think we are going to send missions to Mars and Jupiter like out of a Space Odyssey novel?? No its a bureaucratic reorganization of the Air Force's space division, nothing new. Trump gave it a fancy name to for you morons to drink his Kool Aid. Gee I am beginning to wonder if you were the homeless guy I saw on Austin St ranting about Trump saving America from the illegals. LMAO.
Stay in Mexico, gee, look at any charts from immigration themselves, they have actual data, deportations and apprehensions are actually less than when Obama was President or around the same. Bill Clinton by the way deported more than anyone.
Also China, LOL, trade deficit has widened, and that USMCA had bipartisan support its merely NAFTA with a different name. You will tell me ICE is infiltrated with "Deep State" operatives. LOL.
But hey you cannot grasp reality or numbers which never lie. You cannot even grasp Trump does not give a flying fart about you, you are probably a loser who failed around women.
If he was such a great leader like Ronald Reagan, why are the store shelves being emptied? Why all the panic buying? I saw it with my own eyes over the weekend.
