You’d better not criticize Sheldon Silver if you know what’s good for you.

A Silver ally warned a GOP critic of the powerful Democratic Assembly speaker that she’d better stop her attacks — or else, The Post has learned.

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick (D-Manhattan) was overheard telling Republican colleague Nicole Malliotakis that there would be consequences if the GOPer kept calling for Silver to step down over the Vito Lopez sexual-harassment scandal.

“You’ve been in the paper a lot talking about the speaker. You should quiet down before someone starts playing games with you,” Glick told Malliotakis on the floor of the Assembly, according to a person who overheard the conversation.

Is this a threat? Hard to tell, when trying in interpret NewYorkSpeak, a strange language where nothing much is actually a reflection of reality.

Or what? Even the loyalists during the revolution were not this bad.

The National Socialist Democrat Party is the Nazi party of the U.S.

It is time to put a stop to these Brownshirts.

“You should quiet down before someone starts playing games with you,...”

Sure sounds like one to me.

It’s a clear message which requires no footnote.

I have to agree with you about the NewYorkSpeak comment.

While a lot of us would see that as a threat, there’s another line of belief where the Dem is telling the Rep “I like you. But you’re dealing with some hard-nosed people here and maybe you should be careful about what you say. I’d hate to see something happen to you.”

It sounds to me like she’s making a veiled threat. Just because she represents the West Village where the Genovese family still reigns doesn’t me she has to sound like a mobster.
