New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is unable to run again and his on his way out.
That’s a blessing itself since he’s arguably the worst mayor NYC has ever had.
But that doesn’t mean he won’t try anything to screw over New Yorkers before leaving office.
De Blasio has done everything he can to convince his constituents to receive the experimental COVID-19 jabs.
Who could forget his hilariously pathetic (and creepy) burger and fries press conference:

This is excruciatingly embarrassing & sinister from New York mayor Bill De Blasio, which should act as a warning against vaccination. 110 million people in 🇺🇸 are considered obese, & yet he's incentivising vaccinations with a free burger, fries & shake.#VaccineSafety #Obese pic.twitter.com/LrwfFVI2NP

How about his ridiculous Brooklyn Nets gear while promoting the Barclays Center mass vaccination site?

But de Blasio has something more authoritarian up his sleeves now.
Before he leaves office, the mayor is calling for all private employers of NYC to enforce compulsory COVID-19 vaccinations.
He already has public healthcare workers covered, they must submit to the jabs or face weekly COVID-19 tests.
Now he’s focusing on the private sector to enforce vaccine mandates.
I’m curious to see how many businesses comply with this ‘request’ and how many will tell him to shove it.
Considering a good number of New Yorkers still wear face diapers outside, my hopes aren’t high at this moment.
But the easiest way for consumers to combat this tyranny is with your wallet.
If any business forces you to show proof of this experimental injection, deny them your patronage.
Companies that are complicit with this tyranny deserve to go out of business.
And for employees, find a company that respects your right to medical freedom and privacy.
I would say sue but our corrupt court system has sided with vaccine mandates once.
So, I have my doubts it would be successful.

Daily Mail reported:
Bill de Blasio on Friday urged all private employers to make vaccinations against COVID-19 compulsory, calling on them to do the ‘maximum you feel you can do’ as the nation is roiled by early signs of a resurgent pandemic.
The mayor of New York City told WNYC radio that he wanted the private sector to do more.
‘If anyone is asking my advice, particularly large employers, move toward vaccine mandates now,’ de Blasio said.
‘I urge every employer to go to any form of mandate that you’re comfortable with.’
On Wednesday he announced that workers in public hospitals and clinics would, from August, be compelled to get vaccinated or submit to weekly testing for the virus.
It will apply to some 30,000 workers across 11 public hospitals.
It comes as New York sees a surge in new coronavirus infections amid the spread of the more contagious Delta variant.
‘I don’t have a doubt in my mind this is going to move people [hospital workers] towards vaccination,’ de Blasio said on Wednesday.
‘If we don’t see vaccination numbers go up fast enough, if we don’t see progress against the variant, we are going to consider a range of options,’ he said, adding that he hoped private hospitals would take similar steps.
Just over 60 per cent of hospital staff in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island have received a vaccine through July, according to the New York Post.
That compares to 64 per cent of adults in New York City adults who are fully vaccinated, and 70 per cent who have received at least one dose.
‘Private enterprise rights are different than for a public entity,’ de Blasio said on Friday.
‘We all need to climb this ladder together. We’ll have more to say in coming days.’
The mayor said that they had reached the limits of simply encouraging people to get vaccinated.
‘We tried purely voluntary for over half a year. We tried every form of incentives,’ he said during his weekly appearance on The Brian Lehrer Show.
‘But now we’ve got to go further, we’ve reached the limits of a purely voluntary system.
‘It’s time for more mandates.’
