New York Marxist Mayor’s Lesbian Wife Claims Pre-K is the “Defining Civil Rights Issue of our Day”

deblasio11n-6-web-e1378767692485

So we solved all the big stuff. All that’s left now is universal pre-K and all the civil rights people can go retire and live in Florida.

At least that’s what New York City’s Marxist Mayor’s lesbian wife thinks and if you can’t trust the lesbian wife of a Communist on civil rights, whom can you trust?

With his tax hike for universal prekindergarten in serious jeopardy, Mayor de Blasio and his wife ramped up the rhetoric Tuesday, comparing the fight for expanding preschool to the struggle for civil rights.

“Make no mistake, this is the defining civil rights issue of our day,” de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, told 200 applauding African-American clergy members at a Baptist church in Brooklyn.

“Universal prekindergarten and after-school programs are essential to our children’s future, are essential to our future,” she said.

Without universal prekindergarten, we’re nothing more than animals, animals crawling on our bellies in the jungle. Only prekindergarten can lift us out of the savage darkness into the light of civilization.

Fortunately, Governor Cuomo has already said he will fund universal pre-k. But Bill de Blasio aka William Wilhelm jr. and his lesbian wife insist that they want to raise taxes to pay for universal pre-k.

Meanwhile, de Blasio said that state Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos (R-Nassau), who strongly opposes the tax, was “denying us our rights in a democracy,” treating New York City like “a colony that doesn’t even get to decide its own future.”

Bill de Blasio just realized that New York City isn’t its own state. Now someone has to slowly sit him down, wait till whatever he’s on is flushed out of his system and explain to him how cities and states work.

De Blasio and the Rev. Al Sharpton, who hosted the breakfast gathering, then led the crowd in a chant of, “We want a vote! We want a vote!”

You get a vote every election. A lot of Sharpton supporters get three or four.

McCray quoted the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who was close to the church’s late pastor, the Rev. William Jones.

“As Dr. King said, ‘Now is the time to make justice a reality for all God’s children.’ We need this program. We’ve got a plan for the program. So let’s get with the program,” she said.

This is exactly what Martin Luther King had in mind.

    I thought being homosexual or transgender or whatever, are the civil rights issues of the day. Why can’t the lefties make up their minds?

    New York de Blasio voters should be deported to Fallujah or its counter part in America Detroit .

  • Michael Gerardi

    The Big Rotten Apple SHOULD be its own state. Then the remaining REAL Americans in upstate New York might have a chance to be heard for once.

    Since the beginning of time we have not had Pre-k programs. This might surprise Blowhard Bill, but some of the greatest men and women who ever walked this earth never had Pre-K and after school programs. Did you know that Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, nor Marcus Aurelius, Cicero, and Tacitus didn’t have it? Neither did Augustine of Hippo, St. Jerome, St. Francis or St. Benedict. The Venerable Bede never mentioned it. I don’t believe Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Elizabeth I, or Catherine The Great ever underwent training like that. And of course Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, or John Jay, did not also. The world produced geniuses and giants without Pre-k and after school programs and done pretty well by it, only to now have to listen to intellectual Dwarves like Bill de Blasio.

      Some research on the value of pre-K programs has strongly suggested that there is very little long term value although there might be some in the short term. The problem with the analogy with the Greeks and Romans is that the individuals you cite were also embedded in a stable cultural setting each of which had robust notions of how children were to be educated so even if there weren’t pre-k programs there was a lot going on in children’s lives to promote cultural values and ultimately culturally approved outcomes. Roman education among the middle and upper classes was handled by a nurse and/or pedagogue from birth, however, in some towns and cities school was a recognized institution for those who couldn’t afford private teachers or pedagogues. (From Philippe Aries “A History of Private Life” Obviously, there’s a lot of variation across historical periods and cultures and it is interesting how many successful people had really poor upbringings and educational starts.

        Thanks for that. Much of what I posted was tongue in cheek. How ever many of these people were raised, it wasn’t through some socialist child rearing fantasy program. Your last paragraph is what I was getting at.

    Got to start that brain washing early…

    ““Make no mistake, this is the defining civil rights issue of our day,” de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, told 200 applauding African-American clergy members at a Baptist church in Brooklyn.”

    These leftists continue to ratchet up the rhetoric to promise everything as “defining civil rights issues.”

    They make me sick. Stupid communists.

    I do not like the name calling in this article and it shows a level of immaturity in the writer that is better left at home. BUT I do not understand how this man became the Mayor of Ny. What is wrong with Ny’ers anymore?? I just dont understand what kool aid they have been drinking in the last 10 years. I grew up in Ny, left at 29. I KNOW Ny…and it is as if NY has been abducted by Californians! What the hell happened??

    Yes, the Statists want to indoctrinate the children at even more earlier years.

    Why do you keep calling her his “lesbian wife”? Geez, Daniel, we get it: she once was gay. From a right wing perspective you should be happy that she apparently ‘converted’, although this might be illegal in California. Try to focus on their social policies. Bruce Bawer is a notable contributor to FPM and, I believe, is gay, although if I am mistaken, sorry Bruce.

    this may very well be what martin luther king wanted. he too was a communist you know..

    K? I thought they were saying “Pre-Gay”

    “We’re nothing more than animals”. Oops, sorry, did I take that out of context. But Progressives do that all the time. And get away with it.
