New York City Mayor reportedly ordered the NYPD to refrain from protecting pro-Israel protesters in Times Square during a scheduled rally. This news comes from a claim made by Andrew Giuliani, son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and candidate to be de Blasio’s replacement.
According to Giuliani, members of the NYPD told him that de Blasio specifically and directly ordered them not to protect the pro-Israel rally, posting on Twitter: “We have been told by NYPD that they have been told by the @NYCMayor Office not to protect the pro-Israel rally in Times Square @3pm. We will not be intimidated, we will not back down and we will ALWAYS STAND with our Israeli brothers and sisters! Rally ON!”

The Republican candidate did not give more details or reference particular officers, but there’s no reason to doubt it being true. If it is, then it marks another odd choice by de Blasio in how he has handled crime in his city. Last Thursday, fights broke out between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian groups in the area that resulted in 26 arrests and multiple injuries.

As news spread that there would be no police protection, many pro-Israel groups tried to cancel but people still showed up according to journalist Kassy Dillon. She also posted images of Giuliani speaking at the event.

The Jewish vote is key for any Republican to be able to win in the deep-blue city. With tough competitors lining up on the Democrat side, including former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, Giuliani will need to secure as much of the Jewish vote as possible if he has real hopes of sitting in the office his father used to occupy.
According to The Post Millennial:
Photos show Giuliani, son of former President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, addressing the crowd in Times Square. He announced on May 18 that he will be running in the 2022 New York gubernatorial election.
Antisemitic attacks have been on the rise in recent weeks, with the most recent in the city happening on Thursday when Joseph Borgen was attacked on the way to another pro-Israel demonstration. One of the suspects, 23-year-old Waseem Awawdeh, was arrested and charged over the beating. He has since been released.
“I turned around to try to figure out what was going on and the next thing I knew I was surrounded by a whole crowd of people who proceeded to physically attack me, beat me, kick me, punch me, hit me with crutches, hit me with flag poles,’ Borgen told the Daily Mail on Friday.
Bill de Blasio has no political future. His best prospects are to be a lobbyist or get a book deal like his buddy, Andrew Cuomo. Nevertheless, it’s unthinkable that he would abuse his power in such a way and put lives in danger.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are pacing to be short by about $3700 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
