Cancel Culture Attack on FREEDOM!

New York City’s Only Republican Candidate for Mayor Fernando Mateo.

NEW YORK, NY — May 6, 2021 — In reply to the New York City Department of Education’s decision to nix the Columbus Holiday, the ONLY Republican candidate New York Mayor Fernando Mateo said:

“Never surrender. If we lose Columbus Day, they will come for his head at Columbus Circle next. A line must be drawn to defend Freedom and protect Liberty,” said Mateo. “As Mayor, I will take action by restoring the Columbus Day holiday and leading the celebration of America’s original pioneer,” Mateo declared.

Mateo urged that “The Board of Education should rescind its ‘cancel culture’ attack on freedom and restore the Columbus Day Holiday.”

“Forget holiday name changes. Teach kids jobs skills. Educators should focus on closing the education gap that power-hungry Democrats made worse with panic policies,” said Mateo.

Mateo stated that “Betraying our heritage for the sake of political correctness is offensive and totally unnecessary.”

“If we keep letting divisive Democrats determine the limits of our freedom, we will be living in a new concentration camp. This is how people get brainwashed and lose their independence. I will fight back against Big Government Bureaucrats to stop them from stealing our past and surrendering the future. Never, ever will I allow such an assault on our cherished traditions,” said Mateo.

“We must always DEFEND FREEDOM and protect LIBERTY…this includes restoring the Columbus Day holiday in NYC Schools,” concluded Mateo.

  1. Fernando is a ****** man.

    HEZI NOTE: And what does that mean? Is there anything wrong about earning an honest living? Please explain? What is your issue/concern?

  2. Matteo is a good man and he does have a GOP primary opponent with Curtis Sliwa. I of course agree with Fernando this is an outrage. NYC has gone to HELL under Bill De’Blasio. I’m hopeful that if Fernando Matteo wins republican primary his message of law and order will resonate with voters. Especially older Jewish voters many who are socially liberal ,but very concerned about violence in our streets and subways.

  3. He’s not the only Republican candidate, that lunatic Curtis Sliwa is also running with big 770 and 970 am John Catsamatedes money. Neither one has a prayer despite the out of control crime rates. Andrew Yang will win as he’s the young socialist Asian “shiny object” and not the scary angry black cop Eric Adams. I knew Adams in the NYC Transit Police and NYPD he was the cop version of Al Sharpton angrily accusing everyone and everything of racism and “what not.” I’m very confident that if he wins he’ll bring us back 30 years but Yang will bring us back 40. Eric Adams was obsolete until BLM arrived as he’s the borough President of a Brooklyn inhabited by Russians, Arabs, Chinese, Hasidics and Hipsters that he has absolutely nothing in common with. Sliwa or Mateo would both be great choices for the chaos going on now.

    1. I agree that Herman was a good man and wanted desperately to be mayor of NYC . The closest he came was in 1973 when he lost to Abe Beame in the democratic primary runoff. Abe Beame went on to be elected the first Jewish Mayor of New York City.
