Outrageous: NYC Fleet Week canceled due to 'sequester'; New Yorkers heartbroken

Sequestration scare-mongering has claimed another victim: New York City Fleet Week.


No. You know what the real shame is? That our men and women in uniform are once again being used as political pawns in the budget fight.

Via Gothamist:

The city government issued a statement, “We understand the Navy’s budgetary limitations and hope that the Fleet Week tradition can continue in 2014.”

Evidently, there’s enough spare money lying around to send $250 million in “aid” to tyrannical regimes and to throw lavish, star-studded parties at the White House. But maintaining a nearly 30-year-old tradition that honors our military? The government just can’t swing it.

Here’s the statement from Beth Baker, Fleet Week’s Director of Public Affairs:

“Unfortunately, there will be no Navy ships in New York this year for Fleet Week and no additional Sailors or Marines. We look forward to the opportunity to participate in future Fleet Weeks and we greatly appreciate the city’s patience and understanding during these unusual times. Thank you NYC for what you do for our service men and women each and every day. Hope to see you next year!”


We hope so, too. For now, though, New Yorkers are extremely disappointed:


Oh, and did we mention that the Democrats’ pettiness will also have negative financial consequences for New York City?

This isn’t just a blow to New Yorkers who have come to cherish Fleet Week; it’s also a slap in the face of our military.


What an absolute shame.
