As Democrats and their allies continue to attack Americans who refuse to submit to their authoritarian and unconstitutional lockdowns, the New York City Health Commissioner, Dr. Oxiris Barbot proved to be no different! In fact, Dr. Oxiris was sent a request by the NYPD for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), due to the virus in the city, and she responded by telling them that she didn’t give “two rats asses” about them! In fact, she denied the majority of their request, leaving most of New York’s finest unprotected from what was being called a plague on the city!
The New York Post had reported on the March 18 phone call between her and NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, in which Barbot made the Police hating statement. During the call, Monahan asked for an additional 500,000 masks, and the Commissioner not only refused the request, granting only 50,000, but she stated that she didn’t “give two rats’ asses” about New York Police! In fact, she stated to the NYC Police chief that…
“I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops. I need them for others.”
The New York Post added…
The New York police sergeants union described city health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot as a “b—h” Wednesday in response to revelations that she told an NYPD official she didn’t give “two rats’ asses” about cops getting safety masks.
“Truth is this b—h has blood on her hands but why should anyone be surprised the NYPD has suffered under DeBlasio since he became Mayor,” the Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted in response to The Post’s exclusive story revealing Barbot’s decision.
The health commissioner said in a mid-March phone conversation with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops,” in response to the mask request, sources said.
“I need them for others,” Barbot said.
Instead of the 500,000 masks Monahan sought to help protect his force, Barbot said she could only cough up 50,000, according to sources.
Sadly, regardless of her blatant violation of her duty as health commissioner, NYC mayor Bill DeBlasio refused to repremand her, or even condemn her actions!
Regardless, public outrage began to emerge, as evidence of her actions became deafening!
Now, Law Enforcement Today reported…
Mayor Bill de Blasio refused to dismiss her. On Monday, Dr. Oxiris Barbot issued an apology to the police department, as reported by the New York Post.
“The members of the NYPD fight valiantly every day to keep New Yorkers safe,” she said in a statement released by a spokesperson for the city’s health department.
“In mid-March, I was asked to provide the NYPD with a half million N-95 masks, while masks and other PPE were in terribly short supply. I wished we had sufficient numbers to meet their full request and were ultimately able to partially fulfill what was sought.
“This regrettably led to an argument in which words were exchanged between a police official and myself. I apologized to that police official then and today, I apologize to the NYPD for leaving any impression whatsoever that I don’t have utmost respect for our police department, which plays a critical role on the frontlines each and every day to keep our city safe,” Barbot said in the statement.
However, Ed Mullins, the President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association responded to the Commissioner’s fake apology by saying…
“I question the sincerity of it. At the end of the day, we still had nearly 7,000 members sick, 41 members died, and we still didn’t have equipment.”
The president of the Detectives’ Endowment Association, Paul DiGiacomo added…
“Dr. Barbot’s apology comes only because her disgusting comments were brought to light for all New Yorkers to hear. Her blatant disregard for the safety of our men and women in blue is shameful. These are life and death decisions being made on behalf of our cops. For a medical doctor and person in Dr. Barbot’s leadership position to show such disrespect for those who keep her safe is an absolute disgrace.”
Ultimately, Dr. Barbot and DeBlasio have highlighted just one more example of how the now radicalized left holds no measure of integrity, compassion, or good will for ‘We the People’, or those who are actively working to safeguard our nation! Sadly, they have been filled with hate, intolerance, and greed, to levels never seen before in the United States of America!
Ultimately, it is acts like these that highlight just how important it is, for not only Americans to fight back for our rights and freedoms that have been blessed to us by God, and contained within the Constitution, but for us to defend humanity and America as our Founding Fathers had intended!
