The test of the petition:
Today, Saturday December 20th 2014, 5 days before christmas, 2 NYPD officers were shot and killed in their cruiser for no apparent reason.With the recent news surrounding the NYPD and other law enforcement agencies around the country, our mayor blasted his own police department by throwing them under the bus. His words and actions on the subject matter of late have to be held accountable. He is unfit to lead this city. He is unfit to have a relationship with his police department for his remaining tenure and he should be taken out of office IMMEDIATELY, with proper protocol to be followed to name a replacement before a special election.
There seems to be genuine confusion of what to do about this. You see the folks behind Occupy and Ferguson and MoveOn.org are AGAINST police and FOR Mayor DeBlasio (an admitted Socialist who spent much of his youth in Communist countries.)
They are seriously freaking out that their own website is being used to host a petition that is FOR police and AGAINST Mayor DeBlasio.
But they DID say they wanted people to get out and protest stuff.
Apparently they only like it if you protest in the politically correct way however.
Movon.Org has disavowed any connection with the petition.
MoveOn volunteers reviewed this petition and determined that it either may not reflect MoveOn members’ progressive values, or that MoveOn members may disagree about whether to support this petition. MoveOn will not promote the petition beyond hosting it on our site. Click here if you think MoveOn should support this petition.
I don’t really expect this to go anywhere, but it’d be neat to get 75,000 signatures.
