New York Inaugurates Leftist Radical Bill de Blasio

Other than Chiara de Blasio’s dunce cap and Dante de Blasio’s mangy clothes and urgent need of a haircut, does anyone see something wrong with this picture?

de-blasio-swearing-in

The most obvious answer is that the commie on the right is being sworn in as the Mayor of New York City.

To think I once imagined that anyone at all would be an improvement on the ludicrously power-mad nanny state totalitarian Michael Bloomberg.

At the inauguration, the far left populist demagoguery that got de Blasio elected was laid on heavily:

A pastor [Fred Lucas Jr.] speaking at the ceremony for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday called New York a “plantation,” while entertainer Harry Belafonte denounced New York under Michael Bloomberg as “Dickensian,” while the outgoing mayor sat by, BuzzFeed reports.

Belafonte is best known for traveling the world to denounce America and praise socialist dictatorships. His advice to Obama on how to deal with those who would like to rein in runaway entitlement spending is to “Work like a Third World dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

Lucas had several additional references to slavery in his short address, citing shackles, bondage, auction blocks, the Emancipation Proclamation, Civil War and Reconstruction Era.

Whitey is going to get his now. Refer to Detroit under Coleman Young for an indication of what happens to cities when the mayor holds this attitude. Detroit never recovered. New York might not either.

After being sworn-in by former President Bill Clinton, the mayor addressed New Yorkers in a speech that used the word “progressive” seven times, mentioned “New York” eight times and invoked the Occupy Wall Street phrase “The One Percent.”

“I know there are those who think that what I said during the campaign was just rhetoric, just political talk in the interest of getting elected. There are some who think now, as we turn to governing – well, things will continue pretty much like they always have,” the new mayor said. “So let me be clear: When I said we would take dead aim at the tale of two cities, I meant it. And we will do it.”

By “two cities,” he is referring to those who work for a living and those who vote for a living. There should be no disparity between their levels of income, according to progressive ideology.

Appropriately, de Blasio was sworn in on a Bible once owned by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who did more than any other president (so far even including Obama) to erode the Constitution and move America toward authoritarian collectivism. After the ceremony, the historic Bible went missing. What do you expect from an administration that sold itself in advance as a looting spree? Hours later the Bible reappeared.

The level of class New Yorkers can expect from the de Blasio Administration was indicated by the relentless broadsides delivered against outgoing Mayor Bloomberg as he sat a few feet away. If he were less of an authoritarian, you could feel sorry for the guy.

As with all leftists, the slightest scratch on the populist veneer reveals the control freak statism lurking beneath:

[T]he inauguration, which was touted before-hand as “one of the most open and accessible swearing-in events in New York City history,” also provided a window into how the administration will handle the new crush of attention, with Mr. de Blasio–a former political operative known to be image-conscious–keeping certain aspects of the event tightly controlled.

Along with Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo and the other stars who graced the inauguration stage, various non-political New Yorkers were asked to join them, lending the event an even more populist tinge. Hours before the speeches began, those New Yorkers sat quietly on folding chairs in the City Hall rotunda. But when Politicker approached a man to ask him about how it felt to take part in the inauguration, security quickly circled and demanded the interview end.

Later, when reporters tried to approach volunteers at the event, staffers quickly swooped in, saying the volunteers were barred from talking to the press.

And after Mr. de Blasio’s speech, reporters gathered inside on a carpet awaiting the Clintons were ordered by security guards off the carpet and behind columns where several refused to go. When asked who was inside, a de Blasio aide guarding the entrance was terse.

“Keep wondering,” he offered.

“The People” have spoken.

The reason virtually uniformly Democrat New York hasn’t had a Democrat mayor since the disastrous David Dinkins 20 years ago is that the candidates the Democrat Party runs are so extreme that not even New Yorkers have been nuts enough to vote for them — until now.

    RIP NYC. We hardly knew ye.

  • Mr. Mentalo

    This man is a communist, a revolutionary, a crook and a thug. If there is any doubt that “they” outnumber “us”, then his election erases it.

    He’s declared open war on Americans, and the Clintons were right there with him. If there is any chance at re-taking America, it could happen if de Blasio goes over the line so bad even the press can’t ignore it. Then it not only topples him, but besmirches Hillary as well.

    That, however, is a dream. The reality is he’s going to get away with every progressive idea he can cook up. New York will look like one big “Occupy” rally…and Hillary is already “re-branding” herself as a progressive (as if she needed to).

    The people have spoken. I’m afraid there is no going back.

    I have so waited for this moment. For those of who say “Let It Burn,” this is a very sweet moment, indeed.

    We all say the same thing: “write this down. Mark this moment. From here we measure this ‘leader.’ Let’s see how long it takes him to get thousands more people killed each year, and turn it into Detroit, Part II.”

    The only question is, Will Chicago beat NYC to default?

    Look what a few years of Rahm has had on that idyllic jewel on the lake. He’d have to hand out miniguns to increase the murder rate.

    Let’s watch this clown give the people what they asked for.

    My only hope is that NJ benefits from having the few taxpayers left in NYC “come on over…”

    Hate to break it to you. Bloomberg was by any noraml definition of the term a Dhimmierat. Even McCain would be hard pressed to be placed in the same part as Bloomberg although he is certainly at home with the likes of the new communist. In fact what are the differences?

    The OPEN SEWER NYC deserves whatever they get! The turds are circuling.

    NYC is too big to fail ‘cause there’s nothing left to bail it out with. NYC’s buddy in the wh has seen to that. You get what you vote for. So, please, no whining. You voted for him, the Rodney Dangerfield of mayors. He’s surely not goin’ to get any respect from me.

    Why are communistic atheist anti semitic God-hating liberal bastards sworn in with their hand on a book inspired by God Himself and written by Jews and Christians??????

  • Mary

    What’s wrong with that picture?

    Maybe that in a still White majority nation, your ‘leaders’ are anti-White jews and race-mixing degenerates.

    Are you NYC communist Jews worried that this Pro-Palestinian Muslim dhimmi slave is now controlling your future?

    “Work like a Third World dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

    ____________

    I’ve got news for Harry. Third world dictators can jail their enemies because their enemies are disarmed. You can talk about disarming conservative Americans. However many of us will not voluntarily give up our arms. In fact, there aren’t enough leftists around to confiscate all of our guns.

    She’s wearing a dunce cap? My money is on it being a witch’s hat.

  • oldguy

    This man is not a Communist, he’s a Socialist. Taxing the wealthy with an income tax is a fools errand as the wealthy make the rules and exemptions. Take 10% or so of a person’s wealth every year and you will soon arrive at equality.

  • Anonymous

    A communist a socialist, the same caca.

    A communist is a socialist in a hurry, it’s been said.

  • Richard

    NYC actually deserves this. They had Giuliani for years, and even Bloomy started out OK, but turned weird. The state of new york has elected a majority of lib-tards for a long time, and the city is a bastion of lib-tardism. This is a natural devolution for them. Think of the joy the city will experience over the next 4 years. The people there probably will not learn a thing, but who really cares?

  • joe

    The democrat party has established routine voter fraud. Now the left wing of the party is able to elect any sleazebag they like.

    All the NY dems thought voter fraud was no big deal, it kept the republican riff-raff out of power.

    Now they’re going to pay dearly for their corruption. Jobs will be lost, property values will decline, lives will be lost. But the worst part will be that they now live in a criminal/communist run hell hole of their own creation.

    De Blasio should refuse to pay pensions to anyone who doesn’t still live in NYC. Keep that money circulating in the local economy, to help the poor.

    Could someone please photoshop this picture into the scarecrow tin man lion and dorothy, with the wizard hand on the bible?
    It already looks like it

  • Jodie

    In one picture, the girl has a floral arrangement around her head in what looks like an effort to hold her hair down. Above, she is wearing a dunce cap to do that. I have a feeling that without those things, her hair would look just like her brother’s.
