“Plantation of NYC has systemic injustices”
Democrat Bill de Blasio has been sworn in as the mayor of New York City amid radical rhetoric and rancorous racial overtones that would be lethal if he was a Republican. But the hypocritical liberal double standard is in full gear for New Yorkers.
Bill Clinton officiated as de Blasio took the oath of office (Video link). The mayor has longstanding ties to both Bill and Hillary. He worked in the Clinton administration as a regional director of Housing and Urban Development and managed Hillary Clinton’s 2000 campaign for U.S. senator from New York.
The new mayor spent the first day on the job defending controversial comments made by many of his inauguration speakers, including one minister who described New York City as a “plantation.” Extremist Harry Belafonte also took the mic.
“I am very comfortable with everyone’s remarks….and I think the ceremony represented the positive aspiration of New Yorkers for a more just city,” de Blasio told reporters
Though de Blasio campaigned on the idea of building an administration that mirrored the city, he laughed aloud when asked about hiring Republicans, saying “Let’s not get crazy about this diversity idea.” He concluded by declaring any Republicans he’d consider “would have to share our values.”
Sounding like an anti-capitalist anarchistic Occupy Wall Streeter, his goal, he said, was that New Yorkers would come “to 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.”
“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. When I said we would take dead aim at the Tale of Two Cities, I meant it. And we will do it. I will honor the faith and trust you have placed in me. And we will give life to the hope of so many in our city. We will succeed as One City.”
High on de Blasio’s list of policy proposals is universal, full-day pre-kindergarten for the city’s four-year-olds, and the expansion of after-school programs. Think that concept through. Parents turn their toddlers over to government care. Then the tots and their siblings stay from morning to evening for full-blown liberal indoctrination — including taxpayer-provided meals — learning from an early age to rely on others to fulfill their basic needs, as the concept of family is further eroded.
And the new First Lady Chirlane McCray, is no slouch in the radical shock department. In 1979 she announced she was a proud lesbian in an essay in Essence magazine boldly titled, “I Am a Lesbian.” And after you’ve read the salacious, read the stomach turning in this Bloomberg coverage where de Blasio pledges to focus on NYC’s wealth gap.
