The Morning Report - 1/26/22


Good morning, kids. Wednesday and I just have to laugh. Many years ago in my show business days, I had the distinct displeasure of encountering Michael Rapaport. To describe him as a crude lowlife is insulting to crude lowlifes. What made it worse was his insufferable egomania. But, as the song goes, "that's entertainment." As with most no-talent has-beens, when your 15 minutes is up, you still crave that spotlight like a penniless Skid Row alkie craves his own vomit. Like such other glittering gems of self-inflated vanity, Debra Messing and Alyssa "Cookie" Milano to name just two, Rapaport has spent the past decade or so spewing truly horrendous profanity and invective at anyone and anything that is non-Leftist, in a desperate attempt to remain recognizable, if not relevant.

So, Monday, Rapaport walked into a drug store on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and was shocked - SHOCKED! - at what he witnessed.

In the video posted to his Instagram on Monday, Michael Rapaport films the masked thief casually walking through the front door past the security guard while carrying several bags loaded with stolen goods in broad daylight.

"I can't believe I'm seeing this shit!" the True Romance star exclaims in the video. "He's walking down the street like shit is Gucci, he looked me in the face like 'what's good.' I was watching him the whole time! My man just went Christmas shopping in January . . . "

. . . "These criminals know there are no ramifications. We have to put more of these motherfuckers in jail," he said. "You see all these videos on Instagram of people shoplifting like they're going for a walk in the park. 'It's pathetic that this is happening in the greatest city in the world."

The security guard seen in the video allegedly told Rapaport that the Rite Aid on 81st Street and 1st Avenue has been robbed on almost a daily basis and will be closing on February 15 along with 63 other locations due to the spike in thefts.

Michael Rapaport blamed the spike on former New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio for his soft-on-crime stance hoped that Mayor Eric Adams will change course.

"I think Eric Adams knows what's going on, he knows how to deal with crime. I'm just hoping he lives up to our expectations," he said.

Rapaport lamented that he relies on the neighborhood Rite Aid for his mood stabilizers and will have to travel further to another pharmacy now that the location will be closing due to theft.

RUFKM?! Where to even begin? First of all, how absolutely stupid do you have to be to actually film someone who is no more than a few feet away from you and glaring right in your face while committing a crime? He's damned lucky this goof didn't pull out a shiv and jam it in his eye. But that's beside the point.

What is galling in the extreme is his incredulity at all of this. Meh, he's a recovering alcoholic and admittedly on prescription mood stabilizers. But his violent, pornographic rants against people like Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani and even Melania Trump cannot be blamed on chemicals and booze. No doubt he supported BLM in the wake of George Floyd's death while resisting arrest. That makes his rant about the lawlessness in NYC risible given his protestations over what happened to George Floyd which we now know, regardless of the optics of the knee on his neck, was caused by Floyd's drug abuse and poor health.

Surely, while Minneapolis and scores of other cities were burned out and looted - including Rapaport's beloved "greatest city in the world," where the hell was he and his Instagram account? Where was he when Andy Ngo got a hate-shake to the head or when Kyle Rittenhouse had to use deadly force to save his own skin in the act of preventing the wanton destruction in Kenosha?

Meh, I'm conflicted; should I be so hard on Rapaport? After all he is speaking the truth here and it's not to the best of my knowledge a one-off; he went after Titty-Caca Cortez for her hideous, insulting "Tax the Rich" dress and more importantly her blaming gun violence in 2020 on people supposedly having to steal bread to survive. I guess the question is, is there really such a thing as being "red-pilled?" We broached this very subject yesterday vis a vis the vaccine and mask mandates, among other things. While I must say, I was heartened by the scales seeming to fall from some peoples' eyes, I'm brought back to earth by the fact that some still don't quite get it. Rapaport included. The fact that he blames DeBolshevik is spot on, but voting for Eric Adams thinking that he's going to bring NYC back to the glory days of Rudy Giuliani - who Rapaport went after with a cruel and disgusting vengeance in the wake of the 2020 election theft - is yet another example of doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different result.

One has to wonder what Rapaport thinks about communist NYC DA Alvin Bragg who is openly telling his staff that he will not be prosecuting violent criminals. Or even this charming NYC pol:

Cops blasted the Democratic socialist city lawmaker for looping together the two slain officers with their alleged murderer. "How could she mention a coward, cold-blooded murderer in the same sentence as two heroes," said a Bronx cop.

"I find it very disturbing to see the perp's name in the same sentence as the two heroes who are not even buried yet," said a Brooklyn detective.

A Manhattan cop added: "She put the names of our dead cops with their killer in the same breath she wishes condolences." Jordan couldn't be reached for comment on Tuesday night.

The council member also created an uproar on Friday night for tweeting concerns over a community garden just two hours after the deadly shooting in her district.

Yeah, Eric Adams is going to save the day. If you believe that, I have a few bridges over the East River you can have cheap. Unless they've already been shoplifted. (Link is at Frontpagemag.com, "Enter Valerie" - Pixy doesn't like accent marks - jjs)

Catching up on these latest developments in the French presidential race, I realized that the situation sounded oddly familiar. Why? Then it came to me: the face-off between Pecresse and Zemmour brought to mind the recent mayoral contest in my hometown of New York, a city that in the last couple of years, under the poisonous reign of the vile socialist Bill de Blasio, has gone to hell in a handbasket faster than anyone could ever have imagined. The Republican candidate, Curtis Sliwa, seemed the perfect choice to clean things up: he's spent his adult life as the outspoken, often obstreperous, but undeniably brave and dedicated leader of the Guardian Angels, a non-profit volunteer organization whose members walk the streets and ride the subways to protect innocent citizens from violent thugs. But whom did New Yorkers elect? Eric Adams, a Democratic hack whose promises to restore law and order never rang true and who began to break them the day he was sworn in.

I hope I'm wrong, but Pecresse appears to me to have every sign of being a French version of Eric Adams - cynically campaigning on positions she doesn't really believe in and making promises she has no intention of keeping. Why do voters - in France, New York, or anywhere else - keep getting bamboozled by such people, especially in a time when so much is dependent upon their decisions?

I guess old habits and old prejudices/perceptions die hard. While Bill Maher and Bari Weiss may be blind squirrels, they seem to be finding more and more nuts these days. As execrable and loathsome as Michael Rapaport may have been, he has been speaking some truths that are not going to ingratiate him with the hard left crowd. And for an actor whose career, such as it is, is on the downslope, that is an invitation to career suicide.

If someone like David Horowitz, who was in with the Weathermen and whose parents were card carrying Communists, can become one of the strongest voices for freedom and liberty, perhaps there's hope for someone like Michael Rapaport. And millions more people who are less strident in their views. I guess it will take a little more time.
