The Drones Of Labor Day: An Unpacking

     This tidbit should be inspiring more questions than it is at present:

     The New York Police Department will dispatch drones to monitor backyard parties and private social gatherings over Labor Day weekend in response to any complaints. However, some are saying that drone surveillance by police would be an invasion of privacy.

     During a press conference on Thursday, NYPD Assistant Commissioner Kaz Daughtry said of unmanned aerial vehicle surveillance, “If a caller states there is a large crowd, a large party in a backyard, we’re going to be utilizing our assets to go up and check on the party.”

     This is a blatant Fourth Amendment violation, but don’t expect anything to be done about that. All the same, a few questions should be asked:

  • Monitor backyard parties and private social gatherings for what?
  • Complaints about what?
  • Complaints from whom?
  • How large is a “large crowd?”
  • And what’s so terrible about that?

     Has anyone in our glorious mainstream media asked any of those questions of anyone in Big Apple officialdom? Was he answered clearly and specifically? I haven’t heard about any such inquiries being placed, much less answered.

     I have a suspicion: it’s about meat. Eric Adams, who really deserves to be tarred, feathered, and ridden out of the country on a rail, has committed New York City to a “Zero meat, dairy, and private cars by 2030” goal. Why? You hardly need me to tell you, but I will anyway.

     The overt rationale is “climate change.” The real reason is the same as it was for the COVID lockdowns: extending and intensifying government control of all Americans. This intrusion-by-drone into “large backyard parties” is a trial balloon to see just how much surveillance New Yorkers will tolerate. Pervasive surveillance would be key to enforcing such lifestyle changes on the plebes.

     Will it work as the totalitarians hope? Unclear. It’s not working for Sadiq Khan and his ilk, but Americans have accepted ever greater intrusions and restrictions for quite some time.

     Have New Yorkers been more successfully subjugated than Londoners? We shall soon see.
