New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio responded to his daughter's arrest during what he described as "peaceful protests" in the city, which has succumbed to violent riots where law enforcement officers were attacked, buildings are damaged, and stores looted.

As Neon Neon Nettle reported on Tuesday, Chiara de Blasio, 25, was arrested by police who declared that an unlawful assembly was taking place in an area of Manhattan.

De Blasio refused to move after blocking traffic.

The New York Post reported that a source said, “that was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops. There were thousands of people in that area at that time.”

De Blasio responded to his daughter's arrest during a press conference:

“I love my daughter deeply; I honor her."

"I’m proud of her that she cares so much; she was willing to go out there and do something about it.”

“She was acting peacefully,” de Blasio claimed.

“She believes everything she did was in the spirit of peaceful, respectful protest.”

De Blasio's remarks come as New York City has been engulfed in violent riots that saw Police officers being run over by cars and brutally beaten.

Just days before, the New York mayor said he would not tolerate unlawful behavior by demonstrators.

“We appreciate and respect all peaceful protests, but now it is time for people to go home,” de Blasio said late Saturday night.

But De Blasio’s failure to keep New York City safe from violent rioters has not gone unnoticed.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) called out de Blasio on Twitter:

“The National Guard needs to get called into NYC to help. @NYCMayor is way out of his element & rioters are ruling the streets. Let’s stop pretending this is just some beautifully peaceful expression of protest. It’s not. Too many heads are dangerously buried in the sand right now.”

“Where is @NYCMayor, and why hasn’t he requested the National Guard yet to help the NYPD save New York City?” Zeldin continued.

“ALL of the city’s elected officials & community leaders need to wake up, rise up, & take back your city. Anyone silent about this right now is an accomplice to these crimes!”

Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) said de Blasio has “lost control” of the city.

“The mayhem that occurred in parts of the city last night—the unprecedented looting and attacks on officers and bystanders—was not the work of peaceful protesters,” Rose wrote on Twitter.

“Last night demonstrated that the Mayor has lost control of situation once and for all. If we are going to enforce an 8:00 p.m. curfew tonight, then the National Guard must be deployed to assist with that and that alone.”
