Three leftist countries that drew Bill de Blasios interest over the past 25 years rank high for repression on the annual list compiled by Freedom House, a human-rights watchdog group.
The organization uses a point scale of 1 to 7 for political rights and civil liberties, with the higher number representing the most oppressive.
Cuba gets a 7 for political rights and a 6 for civil liberties.
Zimbabwe lands a grade of 6 on both issues.
And de Blasios beloved Nicaragua earns 5 points for political rights and 4 for civil liberties...

And we thought Wiener was bad.
Just think of all the great headlines we’d have had if he was the candidate.
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
I predict that under De Blasio, New Yorkers will yearn for the days of David Dinkins.
Thanks for the ping!
Sadly, there isn’t much time to turn off his supporters. Lhota needs money now. Sad to say, but that was the one thing “Cats” brought to the table.
Glenn Beck Devotes Epic Segment to Marxist Communist Bill de Blasio
By Colin Campbell 10/02/2013
A scene from Glenn Becks program.
Get out of New York, Glenn Beck warned his audience yesterday. Why? Because of who the next mayor is going to be.
Mr. Beck, on TheBlaze TV, made clear he is very concerned about Bill de Blasio, the Democratic front-runner in this years mayoral race.
Mr. Beck held little back in the segment. He raged against Mr. de Blasios past support for the leftist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua and suggested an Anthony Weiner-related conspiracy designed to distract the public from Mr. de Blasio, whom he labeled a Marxist communist with a history of supporting terrorismwith dramatic music playing all the while.
He believes this country as it was founded is rotten to its core, saying, quote, The government should be doing a lot more to helping low income workers and maintain higher tax rates. Unquote. This is not coming from me or The Blaze. This is coming from The New York Times, Mr. Beck said during the show, which was flagged by Gothamist this morning.
Mr. de Blasios campaign did not immediately return a request for comment on the inflammatory accusations.
You have to wonder if all the inadvertent ‘outings’ of Weiner were done by someone with connections in order to get de blasio elected.
Not that any of the commies with access to the NSA would DO anything like that or anything.
