Bizarro New York City

Remember Superman comics' Bizarro world where everything is backwards? Well, I visited Bizarro New York City a couple of days ago. Here's what I saw:

The police are the criminals. They commit crime everyday as part of what they consider their job duties.
Kirsten Luce for The New York Times
Instead of arresting those criminals, the police support criminality; they gather in big protests to demand more criminality.
 Viorel Florescu
When Bizarro police see law-abiding citizens, protected by law, they promptly beat them and arrest them.
Bizarro mayor, concerned about the health and sanitation of these law-abiding citizens who live outside, confiscates their heat generators the day before a predicted snowstorm, so the citizens, for their own benefit, will freeze and disappear.

Bizarro mayor, elected by the people, sits in a mansion holding posh galas for the wealthy 1%.

The people of Bizarro New York City, who elected him, sit in a park, unemployed, homeless and cold.

Bizarro mainstream media don't inform the people, they try to deceive and divert them, which seems kind of pointless, since the people already know the truth. Bizarro.
