New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio opened up a snitch line last week for city residents to take pictures of their fellow man disobeying coronavirus edicts and rat them out via text message.
De Blasio’s idea to turn people against each other has backfired severely after trolls immediately deluged his number with lewd photographs, angry insults and offensive memes. It began after a successful social media campaign targeted the line with derision and called for action.
“F–k you!” user @MorganLSchmidt1 wrote in a Twitter post, alongside a meme featuring Adolf Hitler and the words “TO THOSE TURNING IN YOUR NEIGHBORS AND LOCAL BUSINESSES — YOU DID THE REICH THING.”
“Start flooding their reporting text numbers with this pics!” the tweet added.
According to the New York Post, men are sending pictures of their genitalia to the message line. One user actually reported Mayor de Blasio, claiming that he violated social distancing orders while performing sexual favors on a man “in an alleyway behind a 7-11.”
“He looked at me…and coofed in my direction,” the informant said.
The New York Police Department (NYPD) was forced to temporarily shut down the service because they were getting besieged with these sort of messages.
“The city has begun vetting everything before dispersing the information to precincts,” the NYPD source said.
De Blasio made the announcement of his snitch line on Saturday, urging New York City residents to act as citizen spies as the far-left ideologue exploits coronavirus panic to institute Soviet-style repression in the Big Apple.

“We still know there’s some people who need to get the message. And that means sometimes making sure the enforcement is there to educate people and make clear we’ve got to have social distancing,” de Blasio said in his video address posted on social media.
“Sending that photo in is going to help make sure that people are kept apart, and that’s going to stop the disease from spreading. And that’s going to save lives,” he added.
De Blasio is trying to kick the authoritarianism into high gear even while Governor Andrew Cuomo is admitting that the coronavirus pandemic is improving.
“If you look at the past three days, you could argue we are past the plateau and starting to descend, and that is good news,” Cuomo said during a briefing from the State Capitol last week.
De Blasio is intent on not letting this crisis go to waste, but his Orwellian scheme has backfired. The internet has buried his idea to turn citizens into snitches against each other.
If Democrats Win, Will Guns Sales Go Through the Roof?
No matter who wins in 2020, the biggest story of this election cycle has been the record levels of gun sales. In a piece titled “Guns Sales Break Records With Gun Control Legislation Likely If Democrats Win”, Newsweek highlights the meteoric rise of gun sales in 2020 and how these sales will only go up under a Biden administration.
It’s likely that a Biden win on November 3, 2020 will give life to gun control measure such as universal background checks, assault weapons bans, and national gun buybacks. Scott Reeves of Newsweek noted that “coronavirus pandemic, urban riots and the likelihood of increased regulation if the Democrats win the White House, regain control of the Senate and hold the House” have led to the unprecedented firearms sales. A Biden win would only accelerate this trend, as people become frightened by the prospect of gun control.
Through September, background checks recorded by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) reached 28.826 million. This total surpassed 2019’s record of 28.369 million, representing a 28 percent increase, according to the FBI report. As of September 30, Illinois was leading the nation in background checks with 5.6 million. Reeves noted that other states such as Kentucky (2.364 million) checks, Texas (1.730 million), Florida (1.386 million), Indiana (1.203 million), California (1.187 million) and Pennsylvania (1.030 million), were also experiencing significant upticks in gun sales.
Since NICS came into effect on November 1998, a total of 361.830 million background checks for all purposes have been completed since the program began in November 1998.
Zogby Analytics provided some more data showing how enthusiastic Americans are about buying guns:
Zogby Analytics in Utica, New York found that the number of gun owners increased 3.9% between October 2019 and October 2020 to 31.3% of the population. The number of individuals in a household keeping a gun at home, work, vacation cottage or club for personal protection, hunting or target shooting increased 7% to 42.2% in the last year. Membership in the National Rifle Association, a gun rights advocacy group, increased 6% to 17.7% in the last year, Zogby’s polling found.
“While there is fierce debate in Washington D.C. and among voters about what certain types of guns and accessories constitute ‘assault weapons,’ adults in the U.S. are buying and keeping more guns,” Jonathan Zogby declared.
Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, an anti-Second Amendment organization, is of the opinion that uncertainty brought about by the Wuhan virus pandemic, riots, and the election are contributing factors to the rise in gun sales.
“Typically, gun sales rise in times of fear,” he said to Newsweek. “We live in a time when there’s a lot of fear, including fear that there might be more gun regulation with a Democratic President and Democratic majorities in Congress. And, there’s been a lot of unrest.”
Americans actions speak louder than their words. Even if Joe Biden does the unthinkable (and the very unlikely) by winning on November 3, his administration will encounter stiff resistance from gun-owning Americans across the political spectrum.
