Bill de Blasio: “I Believe in the Heavy Hand of Government”


de blasio

A strange phenomenon during the election was the supposed widespread consensus that Bill de Blasio wasn’t really as radical as he was pretending to be. That he was just another Bloomberg pretending to be a Communist.

Bad news for the business community that could have taken him on, but didn’t. De Blasio isn’t pretending.

Business leaders in the city are scratching their heads over recent remarks by Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.

Describing how he plans to govern once he takes office next year, the mayor-elect declared flatly that he doesn’t believe in the free-market system.

At least Comrade Bill was being honest.

“Everything you heard about me is true. . . I am not a free-marketeer. . . I believe in the heavy hand of government,” de Blasio stated matter-of-factly during an hour-long presentation to some of the city’s biggest real-estate developers.

The meeting occurred several weeks before the election with de Blasio way ahead in the polls and New York’s business elite hoping and praying he wasn’t as much of a leftist as he said he was on the campaign trail.

“It was startling to hear someone in this day and age boldly proclaim he’s not a ‘free marketeer,’ ” said one person in ­attendance.

Because even Obama pays lip service to the free market, to small business and Main Street. Bill de Blasio doesn’t represent those people. He represents the housing projects of the Bronx and the Yuckies of Brooklyn and some of the Stalinists ensconced in teachers’ unions.

The media selected its radical leftist, but their corporations are also going to have to live with him. They’re going to have to live with his crime waves, his tax hikes, his race riots, his dirty deals and his bankruptcies.

It’s De Blasio Time.

    By now, everyone knows the truth about the real Warren Wilhelm, Jr. We all know that he is a Communist who wants to take New York City back into the crime-infested days of the Koch and Dinkins administrations (the outgoing mayor, Michael Bloomberg, ridiculed concerned New Yorkers when they have legitimate concerns about the safety of other New Yorkers under the incoming Wilhelm administration). In fact, Wilhelm is much more extreme than Koch and Dinkins. Many of his choices for political office are Communists themselves. The best thing for New Yorkers to do is to engage in non-cooperation with the incoming Wilhelm administration until it is time to vote him out of office in the 2017 elections. I really wish that Joe Lhota had won the election on November 5. Starting in January, the city will go downhill on a faster rate than it is now.

      I hope that you are right about the New York City electorate waking up and turning out Sandalista Wilhelm/de Blasio . . . but the demographics of the City have changed since Giuliani’s first election as mayor in 1993. If you doubt that tribalism trumps rational self-interest in urban politics–especially where race and ethnicity are involved–look at the history of Detroit since 1967. The same feckless business community that was too afraid to back a strong challenge to the Sandalista will be even more cowed come 2017, in my humble opinion. To the extent they react against him, I predict they will cut and run from the City for greener pastures elsewhere, much as their 1960s-vintage Detroit counterparts fled that city. I truly feel for the decent, hard-working, God-fearing folk of places like Crown Heights and Staten Island. But I may be wrong; I sincerely hope I am.

    New Yorkers, are you effing insane? You want a FULL BLOWN Communist as your mayor? WOW!!!!!!!!! Run for the hills RIGHT NOW!!!!!! If I owned a business in the New York City area, I would either move it out NOW or sell it AS FAST as I could or simply walk away. It wouldn’t matter what the inconvenience would be. There is NOTHING worth staying for now. NOTHING. You want to ride it out until 2017? Good luck with that, because it won’t matter by then. The city and it’s buroughs will be COMPLETELY destroyed by then. If the business community didn’t take this a-hole nutjob seriously, they deserve everything coming their way. People of New York City—– WHY??????

      Communist networking, non purged voter rolls, voting by mail, voter fraud, electronic voting machines that are easily hacked or are already loaded with software to be easily manipulated. People better get their game on because the radical left is playing for keeps and it affects your whole life and that of your family and friends.

  • Veracious_one

    New Yorkers are about to get a heavy dose of heavy handed government….but that’s what they voted for…fools!!!

    • Gary

      Not so sure that they voted for that. Maybe you need to study more about the major corruption in our current voting system in this country. The People are not voting these bad people in however, they are allowing it to happen by not cleaning up the system. The People Do Have the Power to make the necessary changes.

        Yes they are voting them in…People are allowing it to happen because they’re too lazy to study the issues and to put forth a little effort to clean up the problems…they prefer to listen to candidates who promise the most freebies or who just happen to be the right color…American education facilities are failing to produce quality leaders…preferring instead to turn out mindless robots who parrot the leftist rants of their wacko leftist professors who are intent on destroying America….just go to a debate at a college sponsored forum where the students drown out the speakers with hate speech…it is a frequent occurrence…. there are many youtube videos around to show this….American ignorance in the death knell of a once great nation…

          Should you decide that you will do something about the situation, try watching the video in the link at the bottom of this post. It’s apparent that you’d rather rant about the people being the problem with all that these evil politicians have done to us? What you might consider doing is being part of the solution instead of continuing to stir up those who you think have caused the problems. Even if you’re right, how are you going to change the attitudes of these people? What you are saying sounds like most of the so-called Conservative Talk Show Hosts who continue to stir things up while offering No Solutions or avenues to carry out solutions. Most so-called or self-proclaimed Conservative talk show personalities are nothing more than shills for a criminally corrupt RNC Establishment.

          Many politicians must be changed by removing them from office. Restore the Power to The People! If you decide to get involved, watch the video now. You don’t need to respond to my post as I do not have time to debate this with everyone individually. In other words, Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way!

            Step away from the crack pipe before you hurt yourself.

    • Kevin O’Kelley

      Absolutely. In the democracy you get the government that you deserve.

    How refreshing to have an honest Communist at the helm of a large hell hole. Exactly what New Yorkers want and I can’t wait to see how many more of the fellow traveler’s from all over the country swarm to New York to live their dreamed- r lives.

  • pupsncats

    How refreshing that a Communist finally got the support of the people in the hell hole called New York which, obviously, the majority wanted. I can’t wait to see how many fellow traveler’s flock to NY to live out their dream lives. Hopefully, many of them in my state of Washington will among that flock who certainly would feel more at home having Mr. Blasio rule over them.

  • mackykam

    Big Deal. NYC is just going from a Pinko Socialist Mayor to the real thing: A Red Marxist Mayor. NYC: It’s Progressive! Welcome to the KnockOut capital of America. You thought Dinkins was bad, well here comes Dinkins’ second term in spades, so to speak.
    Just waiting to see the mayor-elect’s lesbian wife getting it on with Quinn, lesbian city council speaker. Coming to a vibrating PayTV near you. Start licking those lips now!

    A liberal neighbor slipped me a book supposedly about the Weathermen, and it applies to all liberals. Be warned. http://clarespark.com/2013/11/17/rehabilitating-the-weathermen/. “Rehabilitating the Weathermen.” We are in for it now. And oh, the characters in the book despise David Horowitz and Ron Radosh. Even Todd Gitlin gets their wrath.

  • Bob

    New York City is going to get what they deserve for voting for this idiot.

  • I am over it

    New Yorkers get a Communist thanks to the low information voters who thought he was great because of his mix raced Marrage. Losers!

  • Gid

    New York is not a hell hole yet. Its a place with some good schools and research, some people who would not be out of place anywhere in the USA, and its a fun place to walk. It also has a lot of fools for citizens, and people who think they are voting their interests the same way the people of Detroit thought they were voting their interests. But then again, half our country voted in Obama twice. New York will become a hellhole, as will the country. Oh, and one paranoid note – New York has a truly nasty subculture of people who also can fit in anywhere, but are truly evil, arrogant, sadistic, petty, vengeful, and more.

  • itsatax

    Any business that is able should leave NYC. It’s expensive, inconvenient and now openly hostile. The kewl factor of being able to pay double for everything while surrounded by large shiny things and millions of people who don’t care about you just isn’t worth it.

  • lou hodges

    Well New Yorkers have to live with a communist mayor. Tourist dollar will suffer, people will move away. Dang sure they’re not going to move to NYC. When the party stops and the money stops flowing, the guy will be gone.

  • Kevin O’Kelley

    LOL. New Yorkers apparently aren’t smart enough to do their research first.
    They have to elect a mayor to find out what he’s about it.

  • 1Hoss

    Pass the popcorn! I’ll be sitting around enjoying the schadenfreude. Big Bill is going to give NY a big bellyful of what they thought they wanted. Enjoy.

  • Zach

    i too believe in the heavy hand of government…thank God for Bill de Blasio…the businesses will stay as they want and need the resources of a city of 8 million…free market folks are simply stupid; there is no other explanation for their denial of the reality that such a philosophy is simply horrible for anyone other than the rich.

  • jaswim

    If this man didn’t rig the election, New Yorker’s have lost their mind.
