Mayor de Blasio giddy about turning New York into a Marxist paradise

You might recall our story about New York City’s new “progressive socialist” Mayor Bill de Blasio and how close we are to fulfilling all ten points of the Communist Manifesto.

According to the speakers and message at de Blasio’s inauguration today, the Big Apple’s new Fidel can’t get there soon enough.

Writing for the National Review Online, John Fund described a veritable Marxist/socialist love fest at the event, beginning with pro-Communist activist Harry Belafonte.

Fund writes that Belafonte proclaimed:

“We will be no longer a divided city,” as he compared today’s New York to a “Dickensian” nightmare, as departing mayor Mike Bloomberg looked on stone-faced. “We can become America’s DNA for the future.” Not to be outdone, Belafonte was followed by the Reverend Fred Lucas Jr., whose talk was dominated by slavery metaphors and analogies. He compared New York’s five boroughs to a “plantation” and managed to cram into his short speech other references to slavery, such as “shackles,” “bondage,” “auction blocks,” “the Emancipation Proclamation,” the “Civil War,” and the “Reconstruction Era.”

And to think that when I made references to economic slavery, dependency, and the 21st century economic plantation, liberal progressives and their black henchmen went apoplectic. As Spock would say, “fascinating.”

After all this bluster, there was America’s “first black president,” Bill Clinton who in typical fashion, attempted to moderate the tone and appear statesmanlike, according to Fund,

Bill Clinton then rose and tried to strike a little balance. But the crowd was having none of it. When he praised retiring mayor Bloomberg for leaving New York “stronger and healthier” after twelve years in office, there was dead silence. The cheers were saved for de Blasio, who proclaimed a “new progressive direction” that will “take dead aim at the ‘Tale of Two Cities’” injustices he emphasized in his campaign.

He then recited the key elements of his platform: affordable-housing projects, an end to hospital closures, reform of the “broken” stop-and-frisk policy, and a tax on upper-income earners. After each item, he would say, “We won’t wait, we’ll do it now.”

Sound familiar, America? And the similarities and common ties to Barack Obama do not just end at governing philosophy. Fund noted that Bertha Lewis, the former national head of the scandal-ridden ACORN “community-organizing” group, was an honored guest, and apparently ACORN has been wanting to get DiBlasio into the mayoral mansion since 2001.

I know everyone is focusing on a Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016 but be wary of sleight of hand. The insidious far left progressive socialists are drunk with election success. America has given them our country and its largest city to be led by individuals whose ideology and beliefs are completely antithetical to our Constitutional Republic.

I say look out for Elizabeth Warren or even Bill de Blasio in 2016. I’d lean more to Senator Warren because the liberal progressives need another marketing gimmick, with America’s first female president.

How can it be that the center for free market capitalism and entrepreneurship is now led by an avowed Marxist/socialist? If we continue to bury our heads in the sand, the community organizers and the low to no information voters will turn us from citizens into subjects.

The Marxist-style message being promulgated by progressives such as Obama and de Blasio has never been successful anywhere in the world. Instead of income equality we will end up with shared misery, just like so many failed socialist states.

Perhaps New Yorkers felt a need to be avant-garde, but in the long run you’re looking at potential economic devastation that will make David Dinkins pale in comparison (pun intended). We can only hope it will turn out as Sir Winston Churchill stated: “Americans can be counted on to eventually do that which is right, after they have exhausted all other means.”

Doggone, didn’t know that meant we would have to test our tolerance for Marxism. We are dangerously close to seeing the implementation of the fine points of the Communist Manifesto. And to think the Left went crazy when I said so in 2012 – I guess they didn’t like anyone calling them out. Funny think, I never saw my name next to four Pinocchios or listed as the “Lie of the Year.” Fascinating.

It will take a while but under the hammer of socialism, those who have wealth will decide it is time to leave.

Many already split when the idiots decided those that made $X dollars would have an additional tax…they said “hosta lavista” Baby……

Leaving does not fix the problem. If we lose America to the communists you will see a new world order and nowhere on Earth will be free. And why would communists let you leave when they could just kill all deserters and absorb their funds? I don’t think North Korea allows people to just walk away.

North Korea does not allow anyone to do just anything without approval. The twits in this country have been spoiled badly, they have not got a perspective that you have….income redistribution is communist, disarming the population is communist, telling you where you will work is communist, telling you to rat out you neighbor is communist, etc ad nauseum, telling business what they will do is communist and we are watching the results of parasites voting for their rent, and groceries, and dope money, and their transportation chits…….we are in the middle of one of the worst fights yet to maintain… Read more »

I agree with all you said about Communism. He is already bringing laws that the Constitution does not state. He wants to give to the poor from the Middle Class even. He is nothing but rhetoric. He talks a good game, but he does nothing that he says. Why some people like him is beyond my understanding.

Carole Naro

Eulene – Hope your talking about Obama and DeBlasio. There is no middle-class anymore because that’s the first sect both targeted. They care more about ignorant illegals and moochers of welfare than they do about working people. For example: Look at the percentage of unemployment amongst the Black Population. As an ex-NY’r I’m glad I moved because I got tired of being taxed over and over again. I worked in NYC for 48 years and retired, but got the heck out of NY gladly.

thank you col west, you are spot on, but im not sure if you saw the most obvious socialist line used by the incoming comptroller scott stringer in his speech where he said this “And just as America has historically looked to New York for inspiration, so the country once again turns its eyes toward us today, to this city, to our people, for a blueprint of a thriving hopeful future, to a city that puts people above politics, and shared prosperity above individual success” here`s his whole speech https://comptroller.nyc.gov/newsroom/inaugural-address-of-scott-m-stringe/.

The people have already spoken that they do not want this, Col. West. It is blatantly apparent that Congress will not heed the desires of the American people and will continue to shove this communist agenda down our throats. So we all know we must do something, but the question must be asked: What are we to do short of revolution? Furthermore what are we to do about these RINO’s pretending to be Republicans? I say we out them. Form a new political party and label them the Progressives. It’s time for the Republicans to clean house and boot everyone… Read more »

My answer to DiBlasio is:- Margaret Thatcher said; The only problem with Socialism is sooner or later you run out of other people’s money. Good Luck New York..

Exactly. The worse it is the communists borroughs, the better it is for us – the Patriots! In the end we with our rifles and over 10 rounds magazines will come to free them. But we are not there yet.

I have friends and family in New York; sadly, many working people do not vote; DeBlasio only got 700,000 votes in a city of over 8 million. A tragic statistic. DeBlasio was an advisor to former mayor David Dinkins so his beliefs speak for themselves. I am happy I left New York City when I retired 9 years ago. We go back to visit family in Brooklyn after we pay over $20.00 in tolls, both ways, to cross Staten Island. The City already has an 8&7/8ths percent sales tax on most purchases and I wonder if the new mayor will… Read more »

What part of Impeached do the Democrats not understand. Nixon broke laws and was impeached but he at least he hid away from the world. Not ole slick willy, he just shows up every where. Just like an un neutered dog he just keeps hanging around humping air!

Nixon was NEVER impeached. He resigned before proceedings began,,,

Soon the businesses will discover that in the computer age a New York address means nothing and start voting with their feet I only hope they go to another liberal place that they have already ruined like Connecticut, or Massatwoshits

New Yorkers voted for de Blasio for one reason – they are socialists. We have a city full of immigrants – about a third – who come from socialist countries and they vote socialist. The poor minorities have been brainwashed. I don’t think any of them will wake up when de Blasio makes a mess of things. They’re committed ideologues who hate traditional America or don’t understand it. The schools have been brainwashing them for years. I know, I live here.

Carole Naro

Sara, I do not think that the Russians in Brighton Beach or Coney Island would agree with you. They are not minorities but immigrants that came from Russia after the fall of the berlin wall. They are fully aware of how to work the system and the Russian Black Mafia is thriving. Let this DeBlasio administration of the City try to crack down on them and they’ll be dealt with. What you will get will be more crime.

I don’t know anything about the Russians in Brighton Beach or Coney Island.

Maybe you should take a look. They’ve been there since the Berlin Wall came down in the 80’s.

ANOTHER DETROIT IN THE MAKING! Great, tax the producers more so they leave the city (and perhaps the state because of draconian gun control laws). Let the drug gangs roam unopposed and go a few billion more in debt propping up failed ventures! As with the low (or no) information Obama voters, I hope they get what they ask for!

Colonel, YOU are not allowed to talk about slavery, plantations, etc. Neither was Herman Cain during his presidential campaign, kicking up much Democrat umbrage and indignation when he said that he had left the Democrat plantation. It doesn’t matter that both you and he are black and from the South (Cain, about a generation older, actually grew up in the Democrat-dominated segregated South of the Jim Crow era in the 1940s and the 1950s) .NO conservative, black, white or anything else, is allowed to use such metaphors. Only liberals/progressives are allowed to appropriate such symbols and use them rhetorically –… Read more »

As a lonely New York City conservative I don’t know what the electorate was thinking – I doubt they were thinking at all in the formal sense of the word. I don’t think most of them know a Progressive from shinola, and I believe this election was a test case for the use of the term on a national scale. Seems very few people realize that Progressive is a century old term that equates to Marxist – although seriously, the ubiquitous red placards and banners of the De Blasio campaign should have been a hint. It is very disturbing to… Read more »

Kudo’s to you D1609. As a former NY’r now living in CO, I understand what you’re saying. I think that all large businesses including the stock exchanges move out of the state. Where would they get their taxes from then. NYC will fall, and it’s already in it’s decline, with the POS they just elected there. We in CO have our own problems, but are fighting back against liberal progressionism. We’ve had 2 recalls along with, I hope, viable candidates running for the U.S. Senate and Governorship. I hope we can take back this beautiful state.

““Dickensian” nightmare,”

Where? What part of the city is he talking about? Since Rudy took over in the 90’s even the worst parts of NYC have been doing better than ever, EVER before. Bloomberg over stayed his welcome, but he was ok. Where is this nightmare he’s talking about I have no clue. Typical liberal hysterical nonsense.

They must have a lot of young folks in NYC that were too young to remember the Cold War. Either that or too many New Yorkers are in favor of helping to destroy our country.
