UPDATED: Bill De Blasio Promises Satmar That In Exchange For Votes, He Will Repeal Informed Consent For Dangerous Haredi Circumcision Practice

Bill De Blasio Aharon Satmar Faction Endorsement Rally 9-8-2013In the open and caught on video, New York City mayoral candidate Bill De Blasio promised the Aharonite Satmar faction that he will repeal the city's informed consent requirement for metzitzah b'peh (MBP), the dangerous direct mouth-to-bleeding-penis sucking done by haredi mohels after removing the baby's foreskin. MBP has killed thousands of babies – two in NYC during the past decade – and caused brain damage in many others and maimed many, many more.

Originally published at 9:52 pm CDT 9-8-2013. Last updated at 4:21 pm CDT.

De Blasio's direct promise comes at the very end of the video, but all of it is worth watching.

De Blasio also praises Satmar's schools, which notoriously teach almost no secular subject and regularly graduate illiterates, and promises Satmar lots of public housing, along with his dishonest and horrific MBP promise – all in exchange for 10,000 bloc votes.

It's all openly stated, and it's all on this video:

 

A very dishonest haredi 'journalist' deleted the above video and reposted it without the last minute or so of footage – the minute where the Satmar M.C. stops De Blasio as De Blasio finishes speaking and whispers in his ear. De Blasio nods yes and smiles broadly. And then the Satmar M.C. immediately says in front of De Blasio that De Blasio promised Satmar he will end the city's informed consent requirement for metzitzah b'peh the moment he takes office. He will sit down with our rabbis, not with "the lawyers," the M.C. says. And that's why De Blasio is our mayor.

Unfortunately for the haredi 'journalist' and De Blasio, I have the original video and an audio recording from another source. Here they are:

Bill De Blasio Satmar Aharon Faction Endorsement End MBP Informed Consent For 10,000 Bloc Votes 9-8-2013

Update 2:35 pm CDT – Poiticker reports that De Blasio and Satmar claim De Blasio did not hear the M.C.'s remark – even though it was said loudly over a P.A. system and even though De Blasio was only about five feet from the M.C. when the remark was made.

“I think we need a better approach–in fact one that will help to protect the safety of our children,” De Blasio told Politicker. “I don’t think the current approach of just having a form is particularly high-impact.”

A spokesman for De Blasio's campaign, Dan Levitan, told CapitalNewYork that De Blasio really wants to find a more significant "solution" than an informed consent requirement.

"Consistent with what he has said in the past, Bill has committed to meet with the community and health regulators to find a solution that keeps children safe while taking into account the community's concerns. He would keep the consent forms in place until an alternative is found," Levitan reportedly said.

De Balsio's remark to Politicker and his spokesman's remark to CapitalNewYork does not comport with Satmar's stated goal to continue doing MBP without any government interference at all – a goal reiterated loudly at the rally more than once in ways that De Blasio must have clearly heard.

For its part, a Satmar spokesman told Politicker that, “no specific policies were discussed [by De Blasio] in meetings [with Satmar] in the past several weeks other than to indicate sensitivity and a willingness to engage the [Satmar] community on these issues.”

However, Satmar's words at the rally and De Blasio's complete lack of objection to them at the time, plus Satmar's very public goal to continue doing MBP without any governmental interference at all, makes it almost impossible for De Blasio and Satmar to be telling the truth about any Satmar-De Blasio horsetrading for the Aharon faction's 10,000 bloc votes.

After clicking on the video, I get a black screen and words saying it is "private."

Bill is whoring for votes from these scum bags satmar degenerates. He should live in their awesome housing projects in Williamsburg

I have no respect for all these scumbag politicians who tell the degenerates what they want to hear.

Metzia bpeh is just a cover for giving the kid a blow job - oral sex, that these sick degenerates like to do.

Ahronites and zalmites should all go to hell.

Here it is (I assume it's the same video): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oshWZsy0io

I listened to the latter half of it (after he stopped thanking them and telling them Bloomberg has ignored them), and I didn't hear him promise to overturn the informed consent ruling, but he does promise them more affordable housing as well as childcare vouchers (because goodness knows they haven't had enough of those).

I don't know if this guy is merely dishonest, or also utterly clueless in the bargain.

This "rabbi" is endorsing De Blasio, and is doing so as part of his Satmar cult. He's doing it blatantly and openly.

Tell me, if Cardinal Dolan stood in front of a campaign rally and endorsed Quinn because she's a fellow Irish Catholic, wouldn't that be a violation of IRS rules?

Oh, I forgot. Satmar's above the law.

Curious: Except for Christine Quinn, have any of the other Democrat candidates stood firm on the health risks of this practice?

How about the Republicans? Have any of them pandered to the herpes-passers?

Jeff –

The video you found is the edited version. The last minute or so is cut off.

Of course. If they're so convinced of their rightness, why is everything always hidden?

"Curious: Except for Christine Quinn, have any of the other Democrat candidates stood firm on the health risks of this practice?"

As far as I know, Quinn is the only one who hasn't caved on it. The others are all promising, directly or indirectly, to overturn the informed consent requirement.

Boychikel: Black churches do this sort of thing all of the time. Think, the Reverend Jesse Jackson and the Reverend Al Sharpton.

I think the next mayor will play a major role in reversing much of the economic progress that the city saw under Juliani and Bloomberg. There will be more pressure to raise taxes and fees on "the rich" and on business. Even financial firms don't have to have huge armies of employees in NYC. TD Ameritrade functions quite well in Omaha, Nebraska. Vanguard does quite well in the suburbs of Philadelphia etc.

Every time a Jew does something bad the racist yids will say "But...but...but... JESSE JACKSON! AL SHARPTON! NIGRASNIGRANIGRA!"

I just listened to the beginning, which I'd forwarded past before, and the guy who introduces de Blasio does mention that he's the only candidate who's committed himself to the status quo concerning MBP (which I don't think is correct; they've all said it should be the rabbis' decision, but whatever).

You're right about Kornbluh's version, though - he edited out the last minute in which another Satmar takes the mike and states that de Blasio has promised to overturn the informed consent requirement.

This entire presentation is a textbook example of political bullshit. The fact that these idiots take it seriously illustrates how out of touch with reality they are.

Jeff said: "This entire presentation is a textbook example of political bullshit." Quite true. But it works with a lot of voters.

For those who were upset by my black analogy, how about Evangelicals, small business people, Hispanics, gays or unions? The fact is, democracy is messy and we don't always elect the best people. Some cities are cursed by making bad choices election after election. And then they hit rock bottom e.g the city of Detroit, where almost all of the Jews have fled to the suburbs and the Jewish institutions have closed.

rocky –

Please.

Almost all Detroit Jews fled to the suburbs in the 1960s – LONG BEFORE DETROIT HAD ECONOMIC PROBLEMS AND LONG BEFORE IT HAD LEADERSHIP ISSUES.

The reality is that you have serious issues.

"LONG BEFORE DETROIT HAD ECONOMIC PROBLEMS AND LONG BEFORE IT HAD LEADERSHIP ISSUES"

So why did Detroit Jews flee?

"Scratching head because of Rosenbergs brilliance"

jimmyInBkln –

Are you really this ignorant?

They fled after the riots in the 60s that took place after MLK was assassinated.

The flight had nothing at all to do with any city economic problems or the city's leadership.

It did, however, contribute somewhat to both of those problems developing.

The riots which burned down Detroit were in July 1967, not following King's assassination in April of 1968. By then, there wasn't much left to burn.

The Jews had been moving to the suburbs throughout the 1950's and early and mid-60's, same as New York, Chicago, and many other places. By '67 there weren't all that many left.

shmarya: Jewish (and other) migration to the Detroit suburbs started after WWII. There were crime issues, economic issues and political mismanagement issues long before the riots. Mitt Romney's family left its upscale Detroit neighborhood for Bloomfield Hills in 1953. Many of the ones who fled after the riots were the ones who really couldn't afford to move to the suburbs without experiencing a significant decline in their standard of living or didn't drive, but left anyway because of public safety concerns. I knew some of them.

Detroit's race problems did not start in 1967. There were riots in 1943 (before I was born). Not all of the city's problems were related to race. High taxes certainly hurt. The city's first income tax went into effect in 1962. 22,000 residents left the city in 1966, the year before the riots. New freeways built after the war and a lack of toll bridges made it easier for people to leave the city and still get to their jobs. Increasingly, new factories were built in the suburbs.

I realize this is way beyond you, but what you just wrote (as stupid as it is) proves your earlier comment wrong.

Now, to help you process, every major city in the US experienced a similar degree of people moving to the suburbs post-WW2 – mostly due to an extreme housing shortage caused by the war and the resulting steep increase in the price of the few homes available. The construction of freeways sped up that migration and sustained it because it drastically cut commute times.

Got that?

The anti-Semites were right. Jews drink infant's blood for their rituals. It's just Jewish blood, not Christian
