Bill de Blasio to take big progressive, Marxist policies to the Big Apple

The New York Post softened the news of Bill de Blasio’s visit to Communist Russia in 1983 by evoking a Beatles song in the headline: “Back in the USSR.”

New Yorkers are about to be under the microscope of America’s new science project: an openly Marxist leader as Mayor.

“The people of this city have chosen a progressive path,” he told cheering supporters during his victory speech.

De Blasio’s landslide victory shows that some in America are ready for the transformation as he never shyed away from his visit to Nicaragua in support of the Marxist Sandinista regime.

The only push back came from De Blasio’s team trying to dismiss accusations that the Sandinistas were anti-Semitic.

As the AIM article by Cliff Kincaid points out: “De Blasio had scrubbed the Marxist connections from his campaign website, an omission that momentarily captured the attention of The New York Times. But once these connections and controversies came to light, he embraced his sordid history. He still embraces liberation theology and his work for the communist Sandinistas in Nicaragua.”

The article continues to point out how the media ignored his “illegal trip” to Cube under the guise of their alleged “honeymoon” and AIM claims the FBI has refused to even acknowledge if they opened a file on de Blasio.


“If a revived urban liberalism is possible, then its time is now, while cities like New York can take advantage of their privileged position as highly desirable places to live. Not all cities are in that enviable position. Many cannot afford what Mayor de Blasio proposes,” writes the Slate noting the redistribution of wealth and socialist goals of the new Mayor.

From De Blasio, who spoke in a sea of red and yellow signs (almost daring critics to make comparisons to communist colors from China or Soviet Russia):

Tackling inequality isn’t easy; it never has been, and never will be. The challenges we face have been decades in the making, and the problems we set out to address will not be solved overnight.

But make no mistake: the people of this city have chosen a progressive path, and tonight we set forth on it, together, as one city…

I’ve spoken often about a Tale of Two Cities. That inequality – that feeling of a few doing very well, while so many slip further behind – that is the defining challenge of our time. Because inequality in New York is not something that only threatens those who are struggling.

The stakes are so high for every New Yorker. And making sure no son or daughter of New York falls behind defines the very promise of our city.

New York is the brightest embodiment of the idea behind American greatness: It doesn’t matter where you were born what you look like what your religion is, or who you love.

If you have brains and heart and guts and faith, this city – more than any other in the world – will offer you a real chance at a better life.
