Taxpayer-funded astroturf: NYC Health Dept staffers encouraged to join immigration protest during work hours

When there’s a blizzard and the government says “non-essential employees” don’t have to report to work, the real world wonders why the government has “non-essential employees” in the first place. This might help explain why:

The city Health Department encouraged employees to leave work Thursday and attend a rally condemning the Supreme Court’s split decision to block President Obama’s immigration plan, The Post has learned.

An e-mail sent to DOH workers informed them of the City Hall event hosted by Mayor de Blasio and urged that they participate.

“Staff who are able to attend are encouraged to do so,” the e-mail read. “If you cannot attend, but would like to watch the rally, it will be live-streamed.”

Hey, who doesn’t love their tax dollars being used to pay public employees to be astroturf for progressive temper tantrums?

And yet there are people who actually wonder why the Brexit struck a chord for a lot of people in the US. Go figure.


Thought experiment for the weekend: Try and imagine the level of lefty outrage if a right-leaning mayor told city employees to go to an anti-abortion protest during working hours.
