The Psychology of Politics and Equatable Rhetorics
Ideology and Ego
The NYPD union president lambasted Mayor Bill de Blasio in reaction to the broad daylight execution of two police officers. Patrick Lynch is the president of the “Patrolman Benevolent Association” (PBA), he said,
(There’s blood on many hands tonight, and those that incited violence on this street under the guise of protest, that tried to tear down what New York City police officers did everyday…..”We tried to warn it must not go on, it cannot be tolerated. That blood on the hands starts on the steps of city hall in the office of the mayor.)
Patrick Lynch is insinuating that Bill de Blasio’s incendiary rhetorics incited the devision between the police and the community, or propelled it? Clearly the dichotomy precedes the Mayors statement; meaning, if there’s a discrepancy between the polices provision of services and the publics experience, disparaging Bill de Blasio for supporting the protest is rogue and deviates from the imperative nature of a precipitating situation. Patrick Lynch have encapsulated three irony under his illogical belt, effortlessly, and not to mention his verbal debris scatters— fragments of fallacies.
Emphasizing; Patrick Lynch, is the president of “Patrolman Benevolent Association;” benevolent means, “well meaning and kind,” but his belligerence against Bill de Blasio is indeed ironic. Two; his metonymic use of the phrases, (that blood on the hands starts on the steps of city hall in the office of the mayor), seems in stark contrast of what he’s opposing. Remember his initial contention is centered around de Blasio supporting the protesters and inciting a devision between the protesters and the police with rhetorics? Now his lobbying criticism is inciting the NYPD against Bill de Blasio. Second irony, and the third irony is rather peculiar because it’s the synergy of the first and second irony, because of their concurrent intertwined nature; “rhetorically–lambasting.”
Patrick Lynch and Bill de Blasio used equatable rhetorics, the only distinctions are, “who started it first,” which serves no precedence in the bigger spectrum of things. Lynch has chastised City Hall on numerous occasions, rivaling over contractual negotiations for the union, and his caustic metaphoric-euphemism such as, “mopes” and “skells” are benevolently modest indeed!!! At 51-year-old he’s a prominent staple in the nations largest police union since 1999. Although “Eric Garner’s” death during an officers fatal chokehold is a snippet of the bigger picture, the Staten Island grand jury’s decision to not indict the officer sparked the rallies.
The chained-tandem of protest precedes back to Ferguson, and the domino-effect gradually promulgated wherever similar injustices protruded its head. The gunned-down officers “Wenjian Liu” and “Rafael Ramos,” unified the Patrol Benevolent Association PBA; however, Patrick Lynch upcoming election challenge is in June; and although his objectives are centered around speaking on behalf of his union constituency regardless of the consequences, while ostracizing Bill de Blasio for siding with the protesters, one cannot deny the political innuendos involved; “staying-power.” Bill de Blasio has had numerous discussions with his son about avoiding police officers, and that’s a viable gesture to adolescence across all platforms–period.
Law enforcement that lacks accountability, and the improper and unacceptable behaviors should be culpably neglected from their duties, without any sense of impunity. However, police justices, impartiality, the eradication of crime-ridden environments, and the altruistic nature of some police officers are latent to the media, and usually fades into oblivion. New York City crime has historically cascaded in every category, from; larceny, homicide, robberies etc—surely some merits of credulity towards the NYPD is well deserved
How can we disregard the idiosyncratic nature of the media? The perpetrators of impartial information, the largest elephant in the room. The prominent contender in the charade of rhetorics are the media, aggregating and curating news of specificity to a niche audience is shenanigan. Knowingly, it’ll spark remonstration and partition the publics ambivalent subservience towards police officers. This is not insinuating the irrelevance of the information, but the compartmentalization and the devision, and packaging of information into categories and sections can offset an impartial consensus.
The media plays an imperative role in the underlying rhetoric pervading these chains of rivalry between the police and communities. The problem is not politics or disparity in discourse, it’s ideology and ego; if these prominent figures would hold a press conference and ruminate these paramount subject matters nationally, debate these issues, broadcast it live, integrate the public as part of the discourse, and the protest, rallies and other remonstration would halt instantaneously. Settling these issues don’t require a profound intellectual capacity, just a willingness to remove their self-esteem to create a resolution, before it exacerbate more casualties of innocence.
