Illustrating yet again why liberals lost the 2016 election, Emily Yoshida, a liberal blogger for NY Mag, called on liberal males in New York City to create a ring of urine around Trump Tower.
“Men of NYC if you want to be good allies please form a perimeter around Trump Tower at 6PM and start peeing,” she wrote on Twitter.
She added one small caveat:
And added a bit of advise:
One person asked:
Is this real?

One person noted:
Yes, please do. We need solid GOP turnout in 2018 and this will help guarantee that.

So why would she make such a gross suggestion? Apparently, it’s in response to the House vote to repeal Obamacare:
Another critic noted:
You realize Urinating in public is a Crime. You're encouraging criminal and disgusting activity. Is this what feminism is?

But, one person said, citing the Washington Free Beacon, public urination isn’t really a crime in New York City.
According to a 2016 article at the Free Beacon:
New York City formally passed legislation this week that steers punishment for offenses such as public urination, littering, and drinking in public away from criminal court.
The legislation was championed by City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, a Hillary Clinton supporter who appeared on the campaign trail ahead of the Democratic primary.
She said on Wednesday that the reform “is going to change trajectories for countless New Yorkers,” according to an Associated Press report.
In anticipation of the reform bill, NYPD officers had already been ordered to stop making arrests for the crimes like public urination in March.
The bill is strongly supported by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who also is a Clinton supporter.
Mark-Viverito, who maintains her support of a terrorist who killed four New Yorkers in the name of winning Puerto Rico its independence, has been criticized by colleagues in the city council as a “communist” who “doesn’t care about America.”
One Twitter user wryly observed:
Wonderful folks, these leftists…
And, the Gateway Pundit said, Yoshida walked back her tweet after getting pummeled by conservatives:
- Anarchists Pick the Wrong Philly Neighborhood to Terrorize
- Mass mooning targets Trump Tower
- Communist Event at Berkeley to Drive Trump Supporters off Campus
- WaPo columnist: NYC should take Trump Tower by eminent domain
- Schumer: NYC should stop protecting Trump family if feds don’t pay up
