NYC Mayoral Candidate calls Opponent a “Robot” for Ignoring Un-Vaxxed Workers being Fired

Republican candidate for mayor of New York City, and founder of the Guardian Angels crime prevention organization, Curtis Sliwa showed how to deliver a metaphorical punch to the pro-vaccine mandate establishment at last night’s mayoral debate.

Sliwa, having been a vigilante crime-fighting for decades, is not one for mincing words and tore into his Democratic opponent Eric Adams for his nonchalant attitude towards current NYC mayor Bill de Blasio effectively firing over 50,000 municipal workers if they are not vaccinated by Friday. 

Below is a clip from the debate where Sliwa dug into Adam and called him a “robot” for his tacit support of what Mayor de Blasio is doing to municipal workers. 

Something to note in the clip; even the debate moderator pushes the narrative that workers who are “on leave” without pay are somehow not effectively fired, despite the only way they can start working once again for the city is to get vaccinated which the workers have clearly stated they are unwilling to do.

Sliwa vocalizes one of the most frustrating aspects of the various public health mandates governments have been putting in place all over the world, and that is the lack of any compassion or even acknowledgment for the lives many of the mandates ruin. 

In Adams’ case, he looks even worse seeing as he is a former police officer yet has no sympathy for NYPD officers who are going to be laid off. 

Although NYC is very pro-Democrat, Mike Bloomberg and Rudy Giuliani were elected as NYC mayor while running under the Republican banner. It is always an uphill battle for any Republican to become the NYC mayor, but Sliwa is stealing away a lot of traditional Democrat support so he may have a path to victory.

Sliwa has been attending anti-mandate rallies, including one just two days ago where both vaccinated and unvaccinated workers marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to take a stand against the vaccine mandate. 

City workers typically would be supporting the NYC Democratic mayoral nominee, but this year Eric Adams may need to rely more heavily on pro-mandate progressive voters. Adams cozying up to Mayor de Blasio has not done him many favours as de Blasio only had a 37 percent approval rating back in July (last time approval polls are available) which was before he started threatening to fire unvaccinated city workers. 

Last night’s full debate is posted below. Whether you live in NYC or not, it is an entertaining watch as Curtis Sliwa never pulls a punch when going after Eric Adams.
