Comrade De Blasio Takes Over


Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 3.21.41 AMCommunist-sympathizing radical Bill de Blasio has laid out an ambitious, far-left agenda as he begins what is destined to be a disastrous reign as New York’s 109th mayor.

Leveling left-wingers, with their perverse obsession with income equality, are looking eagerly to the city in the hope that the new mayor will “morph New York City’s municipal machinery into a closely watched laboratory for populist theories of government that have never before been enacted on such a large scale,” according to a fawning New York Times profile.

In a pie-in-the-sky inaugural address, de Blasio promised class-based hatred and civil unrest in pursuit of so-called social justice.

“We recognize a city government’s first duties: to keep our neighborhoods safe; to keep our streets clean; to ensure that those who live here – and those who visit – can get where they need to go in all five boroughs. But we know that our mission reaches deeper. We are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that threaten to unravel the city we love. And so today, we commit to a new progressive direction in New York. And that same progressive impulse has written our city’s history. It’s in our DNA.”

De Blasio’s ascendancy could also help Democrats at the national level two years from now.

The fact that in 2016 America’s largest metropolis and the critical battleground state of Virginia will be under the control of longtime Clinton loyalists is bound to be helpful to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. De Blasio was campaign manager for Mrs. Clinton’s successful U.S. Senate bid in New York State in 2000. Former Democratic National Committee chief and fundraiser extraordinaire Terry McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton crony, is scheduled to be sworn in as Virginia’s 72nd governor on Jan. 11.

De Blasio was formally sworn in on New Year’s Day by former President Bill Clinton. Before administering the oath, Clinton said, “I strongly endorse Bill de Blasio’s core campaign commitment that we have to have a city of shared opportunities, shared prosperity, shared responsibilities.” Also in attendance at the ceremony were Hillary Clinton, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), and useful idiot celebrities including neo-communist Harry Belafonte and actress Cynthia Nixon.

Unfurling the blood-red banner of class warfare and ugly polarization, de Blasio, an unrepentant supporter of ACORN and Occupy Wall Street, is already plotting early assaults on the Big Apple’s persecuted taxpayers and small business owners.

Sounding like President Obama, who enjoys putting a happy gloss on theft-by-redistribution, at his inauguration the new mayor said, “We do not ask more of the wealthy to punish success. We do it to create more success stories.”

This is, of course, the essence of the gangster abstraction known as social justice. Don’t teach a man to fish; teach him to burglarize homes and steal his neighbors’ fish.

De Blasio is demanding that taxes be increased in the already obscenely overtaxed city in order to pay for universal pre-kindergarten. Pre-K programs are largely recognized by experts as expensive, useless babysitting for preschoolers. This so-called early childhood education plan would warehouse four-year-olds, benefit labor unions and swell the ranks of government bureaucrats.

“We will ask the very wealthy to pay a little more in taxes so that we can offer full-day universal pre-K and after-school programs for every middle school student,” de Blasio said in his speech yesterday.

Billionaire troublemaker George Soros, an outspoken supporter of China’s murderous Communist regime, donated to de Blasio and endorsed his candidacy. Taxing high earners “is sound public policy and will have a powerful impact on reducing inequality,” said Soros, who lives and votes in Katonah, a suburb in Westchester County.

De Blasio wants to put small business people out of work by banning horse-drawn carriages, a familiar site in tourist-friendly Central Park. “We are going to get rid of horse and carriages, period,” he said previously, saying the animals are not well treated.

The local Horse and Carriage Association points out that tourist carriages aren’t the only users of equine labor. The mayor “better end then the mounted police, the park rangers and everything like that. Because they are walking on the same pavement.”

De Blasio vowed yesterday to expand the city’s Paid Sick Leave law “because no one should be forced to lose a day’s pay, or even a week’s pay, simply because illness strikes.” He pledged to force large developers to construct more affordable housing, to fight hospital closures, and to expand community health centers “so that New Yorkers see our city not as the exclusive domain of the One Percent, but a place where everyday people can afford to live, work, and raise a family.”

He promised to curtail the police department’s extremely successful stop-and-frisk policy in order to assuage the hurt feelings “of young men of color.”

Elsewhere in his inauguration speech, de Blasio couldn’t resist taking shots at conservatives, steering clear of the rhetorical high road.

He praised Bill Clinton, saying that “over 20 years ago, when a conservative philosophy seemed dominant, you broke through – and told us to still believe in a place called Hope.”

In a moment that could have come out of the pages of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, he mocked Americans who believe in the dynamism of the free marketplace:

Of course, I know that our progressive vision isn’t universally shared. Some on the far right continue to preach the virtue of trickle-down economics. They believe that the way to move forward is to give more to the most fortunate, and that somehow the benefits will work their way down to everyone else. They sell their approach as the path of “rugged individualism.”

He drooled over Hillary Clinton for her communitarian monstrosity, It Takes A Village. “Your groundbreaking commitment to nurturing our children and families manifested itself in a phrase that is now a part of our American culture – and something we believe in deeply in this city. It Takes A Village.”

Incredibly, he thanked Mayor David Dinkins, a laughable failure who did everything in his power to hasten the city’s decline, “for starting us on the road to a safer city, and for always uplifting our youth.”

Extreme-left, Saul Alinsky-inspired community organizers already have significant pull in de Blasio’s fledgling administration.

Former ACORN national chief organizer Bertha Lewis gloated back in September when de Blasio won the Democratic mayoral primary. “We’re baacccck. The right wing will have to deal with it,” said Lewis, a co-founder of the Working Families Party, and an early supporter and adviser to the new mayor.

According to the New York Post, Lewis played a “critical behind-the-scenes” role in the primary campaign of de Blasio. New York ACORN’s successor group, New York Communities for Change (NYCC), endorsed de Blasio early last year. NYCC field director Harold Miller, a Lewis protege, helped run the mayor’s field operation. Lewis stood behind de Blasio during his primary night victory address. De Blasio recognized the role that NYCC played in his campaign, tweeting, “Thanks to nychange members for coming out tonight!”

Radicals are optimistic that the elevation of an unapologetic Marxist to America’s most prominent municipal office will aid causes such as low-wage worker benefit mandates and universal prekindergarten child-warehousing. Because such programs have been enacted in smaller cities, those on the Left reckon they could metastasize to cities across America should they prove workable in New York.

“The mayor has a remarkable opportunity to make real many progressive policies and prove their merit,” said ever-trendy leftist kook Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor of California. When he was mayor of San Francisco, Newsom introduced a form of universal health care and defied then-state law by allowing same-sex couples to marry.

“De Blasio matters,” said Newsom. “A lot of us are counting on his success.”

The New York Times gushes that

New York has long been a lodestar for urban governments the world over. The avant-garde policing pioneered by former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani transformed the way major municipalities fight crime. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s corporate-minded approach to education and feats of social engineering, like the ban on smoking in bars, quickly gained global traction.

Not surprisingly, Marxist academic and Hugo Chavez fan Cornel West, who recently returned to New York to serve as an utterly undistinguished professor at Union Theological Seminary, said de Blasio represented “a sigh of relief from the reign of Bloomberg,” the soda-banning, do-gooder control freak who’s not left-wing enough for West. After initially backing Obama, West now considers the president to be a moderate and a sellout. “We don’t want de Blasio going down that Obama lane, or we’ll be in trouble,” he said.

Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. on May 8, 1961 in New York City. Soon after graduating with a bachelor’s degree from New York University in 1983, he legally changed his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm, adding his mother’s maiden name. In 2002 he changed his name again, this time to Bill de Blasio.

Although journalists routinely call de Blasio a liberal, he is anything but; the new mayor’s Communist pedigree stretches far back. Historian Ron Radosh describes de Blasio as ”a far left radical whose ancestors are the New Left and the Communists,” and “a bona fide red diaper baby” who, “like many of his generation … kept his parents’ … pro-Communist politics not far from his heart.”

A longtime supporter of America’s Communist enemies, during the Cold War de Blasio toured the Soviet Union and served as an organizer with the anti-nuclear, anti-American group Physicians for Social Responsibility. He was also a backer of Nicaragua’s Soviet-backed Sandinista dictatorship and as recently as this past September he affirmed he was “proud” to have supported that junta.

In 1990 de Blasio described himself as an advocate of “democratic socialism,” an ideological euphemism favored by Marxists. In the mid-nineties, he was executive director of the New York branch of the New Party, a Marxist, ACORN-affiliated political coalition to which Barack Obama likewise belonged.

In 1994 de Blasio married former lesbian activist Chirlane McCray. They honeymooned in Fidel Castro’s Cuba, in violation of the U.S. ban on travel to that country. In 1996 de Blasio ran the New York state operation for the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign.

From 1997 to 1999 de Blasio served as the New York/New Jersey regional director of the Clinton administration’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), where he served under the egomaniacal HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo. De Blasio left HUD in 1999 to become campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign.

While serving on City Council, in 2002 de Blasio participated in a City Hall ceremony honoring the vicious, land-grabbing Robert Mugabe, the openly anti-white, Marxist dictator of Zimbabwe.

Now that he’s ensconced in office, de Blasio shows no signs of moderating.

This brings to mind what the great H. L. Mencken once said: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

When they put de Blasio in Gracie Mansion, New Yorkers opted for socialist chaos and decline — and that’s exactly what they’re going to get.

    I took a horse and buggy ride next to central park with a date and it was very nice. It wasn’t hard on the horse. If it is so cruel for a horse to pull a buggy on a street with cars DeBlasio could pass a law that the carriages can only travel in the park. Getting rid of them causes the drivers and stable owners to be unemployed and removes one less tourist attraction to NY, a city that is going to become less and less attractive as crime goes up. Left wingers like DeBlasio don’t care about the economic consequences of their actions.

    • Elizabeth Cape Cod

      I think your idea to restrict carriage rides for park travel only is wonderful. It not only helps keep jobs for the drivers, it keeps the horses from going to the slaughterhouse.

      • Gamal

        That’s part of the irony of all of this. DeBlasio is ostensibly doing this to prevent cruelty to animals and the result will be horses being slaughtered.

    • http://libertyandculture.blogspot.com/ Jason P

      It will take more than Comrade Bill (as he is known to his friends) to bleed New York dry. It took Detroit decades. But your sentiment is right on … it’s coming.

      • Fritz

        How quickly we forget, New York already went bankrupt back in 1976 due in part to the disastrous legacy of Mayor John Lindsey, a left wing Republican of all things. The unfunded pension liability for government employees in New York rivals that of Detroit, it’s in the tens of billions, and the tax base is shrinking even before Kaiser Wilhelm gets started.
        You have to remember that Detroit took decades to fall because it started at the top to begin with, it was the wealthiest city in the U.S in 1960 with the highest per capita income, lowest unemployment, and highest economic growth. New York has none of those in it’s favor, it has a small percentage of the population shouldering almost all the tax burden.
        The only thing it has is the NYSE, but given the way money moves there is little stopping the financial and investment services sector from leaving, they are not like auto plants, more like computer memory banks. So drive out those, and the developers, banrupt or cause small businesses to close, and you have nothing but government employees, retired government employees, and welfare bums.

  • http://libertyandculture.blogspot.com/ Jason P

    de Blasio will be more talk than action. Already the left if fuming over his appointment of Bratton as police chief. He was the originator of stop-and-frisk and leftist activists feel betrayed.

    What de Blasio will do is add in small symbolic ways to the welfare state. His purpose is to get re-elected (sound familiar?) and he wants to be able to say “see socialism didn’t hurt” before he lowers the boom. He’s taking a page from Obama … Obamacare didn’t take effect until after his re-election.

    Comrade Bill knows how to consolidate power. He knows if you move too fast (like Daniel Ortega) you may lose the voters. He saw Hillary fail to get Hillarycare passed. He saw Dinkins go down in flames and the Republicans take over for two decades.

    His sole purpose is PR: a new image for socialism. He’s a propagandist.

    • Omar

      Republicans did not govern NYC for two decades. The GOP technically only governed the city for thirteen years before Bloomberg dumped the party in 2007. Bloomberg is an independent, not a Republican. He was a Democrat turned Republican turned independent. The only reason why Bloomberg switched his political affiliation from the Democrats (which he was a lifelong member of until that point) to the GOP was in order to run for mayor against Mark Green in the 2001 election. For about 5-6 years after that election, New York City had a RINO mayor before he left the GOP and then the city had a mayor who was not affiliated with either party. The point is that Bloomberg is not one of us. He never was and never will be. For those people who still doubt this fact, I have a question for them: who did Bloomberg endorsed for president of the United States in the 2012 election? Hint: it wasn’t Romney. Anyway, the new mayor is going to completely ruin New York City. New Yorkers need to engage in non-cooperation with the Wilhelm administration until it is time to vote him out of office in the next mayoral election. But, unfortunately, the city will go downhill for now.

      • Jostalin2013

        Bloomberg is still more dangerous than the Communist Mayor and his drug addicted family. Thankfully de Blasio hasn’t Bloomberg’s vast bully pulpit of $34 Billion to buy anyone and everyone and to strong arm opposition by backing their political rivals.

        The danger is in the Communist minions that will be empowered now to redistribute wealth at will. God, I remember a time when treason was rewarded with executions, not political office.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      I wonder how long Bratton will last.

      I expect there will be a battle of wills between Bratton and DeBlasio at some point.

      Kelly may end up at DHS – which is good. More mosque surveillance.

    Dear Andrew, Hillary (and Bill)
    The eyes of the nation are on New York City. Don’t allow your pet monkey to hold your own political ambitions hostage. If he takes the city down you can kiss your quest for higher office good bye. You can let him indulge in a few stupid and useless feel-good programs like pre-K, but make sure he does not completely ruin the economy. Also keep him from letting his wife’s relatives run wild. Remember your future depends on it.

      He’s just part of the progression of characters being put up for the democrat base. A couple of decades ago I would have bet on the woman over the black guy in the first round. The rest will likely go something like:
      White woman
      Hispanic Man
      100% Black man (Obama is perfect for the double-down isn’t he?)
      Asian man
      Black woman
      De Blasio can be wedged in a few places since he’s a white guy with a black wife, a quinella ticket. Maybe after Hispanic Man. It would make 100% Black Man a sure bet.

      In all of this it doesn’t matter who the republicans run. If they don’t grow a pair and walk over Hillary, (which leftists want to keep pushing the GOPs war on women) then they can get used to those sidelines. The left uses women as human shields by effectively preying on our honor.

But you won’t need a crystal ball to predict the outcome of this journey into fantasyville by the NYC electorate. Radicalism will accelerate as Commie Bill’s administration begins to resemble Peru’s Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path a Maoist guerrilla organization). Criminals now labeled “Freedom Fighters” will operate unopposed, and NYC will become about as safe as Dodge City before the arrival of Matt Dillon. Businesses and citizens will flee the insanity, and ultimately rope-a-doped NYC voters will awaken to the reality that Comrade Bill and his policies are transforming NYC into Caracas on the Hudson.

      “…Comrade Bill and his policies are fundamentally transforming NYC into Caracas on the Hudson.”
      Don’t you mean Managua on the Hudson? After all, Warren Wilhelm, Jr. supported the Communist Sandinista dictatorship in Nicaragua during that country’s civil war in the 1980s. Still, there is no real fundamental difference between Sandinista Nicaragua (which the Communist regime is still governong today) and Chavista Venezuela (which is being illegally governed by an insane lunatic autocrat who claims to be receiving messages from his late Communist mentor in bird form and from a stain on a subway tunnel wall), which are both puppets of Castrogonia (a.k.a. Communist Cuba). And Wilhelm is a puppet of Sandinista despot Daniel Ortega. Bloomberg was bad, but Wilhelm is worse.

      • Kwan

        It is estimated that there are 60,000 Cuban Nationals implanted within the Venezuelan government and military, in effect making Venezuela a puppet-state of Cuba.

        • Omar

          That’s why I call the Communist regime in Venezuela the Cuban Raj. Based on that nickname, it is obviously named after the British Raj, which was the British imperial government in the South Asia subcontinent (present-day countries India, Pakistan and Bangladesh) between the mid-nineteenth century and the subcontinent’s independence in 1947. The Cuban Raj today is worse than the British Raj of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. At least the British Raj tried to maintain peace between different religious groups in South Asia. The Cuban Raj promotes Communist totalitarianism, massive electoral fraud, the destruction of the economy and the destruction of democracy. Alternatively, we can also call Communist Cuba’s empire the new Spanish Empire, since the Castro brothers are the sons of a Spanish colonial military officer who fought under the commmand of General Valeriano Weyler (who butchered many Cuban patriots fighting for independence from Spain) in the Spanish American War. The Castro family dictatorship is an imperialist power in the Western Hemisphere as it tries to dominate country by country, as well as tries to destroy the United States. It is our duty to defeat the Castro family dictatorship and restore democracy and stability to its client states.

      If the return of the “Mugger’s paradise” subways doesn’t jog their memories, nothing will.

    It is piuks like De Blasio that brings out an advanced version of Louis XIV in me with creative ideas for social solutions. For instance to have an effective War on Poverty, we need to shoot all poor people. I’ll come up with more ideas daily.

    As someone who grew up in NYC, this is the first time ever(even after 911) that I do not want to live in NYC. I am truly concerned about what DeBlasio will do to NY. I believe he will destroy this city and create war between people. I hope someone keeps tabs on him and his communist transition team to make sure we don’t end up like Venezuela, cuba …seriously worried. Also, the horse carriage ban is insane, he is insane for wanting to take this away. He is in alliance with the developers for the land where the horse stables are just to make money and payback for campaign funds. This is not about animal rights issues. He is a communist liar in disguise.
