LA Gov. Bobby Jindal Calls NY Mayor ‘Petulant Tyrant’
So, this is the new Republican Party, eh? Calling Bill de Blasio names.
On Tuesday, the New York Post published an op-ed by Jindal in which he criticized the mayor’s hostility to charter schools, saying that de Blasio’s actions have the “markings of a petulant tyrant holding low-income students hostage.” He also accused de Blasio of “[embarking] on a systematic campaign to destroy the city’s burgeoning charter school movement” and said the mayor’s “immoral policies will limit the futures of yet another generation of African-American youths…
“Of course we’re going to work with the charter schools, and there’s a lot of very good charter schools, but we’re going to treat them with an equality as — the same way we treat traditional public schools,” said Blasio, according to The New York Times. “We’re not going to favor them the way the Bloomberg administration did.”
