New York Mayor de Blasio aide under fire for photo of ‘f**k whiteness’ sign

f**k whiteness de Blasio

For white people living in New York City, this should tell you everything you need to know about the regime currently running the city.  On Thursday, the New York Daily News reported that an aide to Mayor Bill de Blasio posted a photo on Facebook showing the mayor with his sister, who was holding a sign reading “f**k whiteness.”

According to the Daily News:

Lincoln Restler, who is white, in his Nov. 14 post said he snapped the photo as he and his mother “took to the streets to stand in solidarity with immigrant New Yorkers.” He said it was his mother’s birthday.

There were three people in the photo, which City Hall confirmed was Restler‘s parents and sister. Restler‘s father held a sign that read “Black + Brown + Immigrant Lives Matter.”

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

His mother was holding up a sign that simply said “Love.”

“But his smiling sister held up a cardboard sign with the words “F–k Whiteness” on it,” the report added.

Facebook users weren’t pleased…

“There are good White People, and you are not going to make me feel guilty that I am,” one person said.

“And you represent our mayors office,” another person wrote.

The Hill added:

De Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips said the mayor didn’t know about the post and doesn’t think the photo is appropriate.

“No doubt the message was inartful and not clear enough in its intent and that’s why Lincoln took it off his page,” Phillips told the Daily News.

Phillips said Restler “understands why people took offense” to the photo, adding it “certainly didn’t represent his views.”

Former City Councilman James Gennaro, who works for Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) at the Department of Environmental Conservation, on Monday also spoke out against the photo.

He said in response that it “seems that to the Mayor’s senior advisor, hate is okay as long as the right people (or the right racial ‘state of mind,’ if that’s what is meant by ‘whiteness’) is hated.”

“Restler, who makes $107,625 at City Hall, took the post down. He could not be reached for comment,” The New York Daily News said.
