Skip to comments.So Bill de Blasio Honeymooned in Cuba—Big Deal?

By New York standards the citys (probable) next mayor Bill De Blasio wouldnt merit a backstage pass at a Castro concert. The Stalinist dictators fan base in the city he craved to incinerate is much too vast and passionate to allow room in the long queue for pictures and autographs to any but the genuinely smitten, who literally swarm in New York City.
I have a huge critique of the current government there (in Cuba) because its undemocratic, snapped de Blasio to a CubanAmerican radio interviewer last week. It doesnt allow freedom of the press, and I think theres a huge number of problems. I also think its well known that theres some good things that happened for example, in health care.
What a sniveling chump! Manhattans elite must be snorting at this milktoast of a Castro-fan. Indeed, when it comes to Castro-mania, de Blasio hardly does justice to New Yorks Best and Brightest.
The Toast of Manhattan! crowed Time magazine in January of 1996. The Hottest Ticket in Manhattan! also read a Newsweek story that week. Both articles referred to the social swirl and acclaim that engulfed Fidel Castro upon his visit to New York by the very Manhattan media and business luminaries who barely escaped incineration at his hand. The occasion was UNs fiftieth anniversary celebration, but the Castromania almost recaptured the hysteria for Simon and Garfunkels 1981 reunion in Central Park.
First on the Stalinist dictators itinerary was a luncheon at the Council on Foreign Relations. After holding court there for a rapt David Rockefeller, along with Robert McNamara, Dwayne Andreas, and Random Houses Harold Evans, Castro flashed over to Mort Zuckermans Fifth Avenue pad, where a throng of Beltway glitterati, including Mike Wallace, Peter Jennings, Tina Brown, Bernard Shaw, and Barbara Walters, all jostled for photo-ops and stood in line for the warmongering mass-murderer's autograph.
Diane Sawyer was so overcome in the mass-murderers presence that she rushed up, broke into a toothy smile, wrapped her arms around Fidel Castro, and smooched him warmly on the cheek.
"You people are the cream of the crop!" beamed the mass-murderer to the rapt and smiling throng hed coming within a hair of incinerating and now surrounded him.
"Hear, hear!" chirped the delighted guests while tinkling their wine glasses in appreciation and glee. But many more were left panting, because according to the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council Fidel Castro had gotten over 250 dinner invitations from Manhattan celebrities and power-brokers.
The jailer and torturer of the longest suffering black political prisoners in modern history was bear-hugged by Charles Rangel. The jailer and torturer of the most female political prisoners in the modern history of the western hemisphere was hugged and smooched by feminist Diane Sawyer. The jailer and torturer of the most journalists in the modern history of the Western hemisphere found everyone from Dan Rather to Mike Wallace to Tina Brown lining up for his autograph. The jailer and torturer who abolished private property within his Stalinist fiefdom found David Rockefeller and Mort Zuckerman crowding around him for a handshake. The Communist dictator who abolished capitalism under penalty of firing squad and torture chamber was honored in the board room of the Wall Street Journal with a VIP luncheon.
God Bless you, Fidel! boomed Pastor Calvin Butts of Harlems Abyssinian Baptist Church while introducing Castro on another New York visit four years later. The Peoples Weekly World described Castros visit as such: The audience which included New York Democratic representatives Charles Rangel enthusiastically greeted the Communist leader with a ten minute standing ovation. Chants of FIDEL!-FIDEL! VIVA-FIDEL! resounded from the rafters.
Then with Congressperson Maxine Waters looking on in rapture, a beaming Charlie Rangel waddled up to the podium beside the terrorist (and racist) Castro and engulfed him in a mighty bear hug. Castro had to catch his breath, but he smiled and returned the rotund senators passionate abrazo.
The mass-murderer who craved to nuke New York was not only the man to see but the one to be seen with by New Yorks elite.
Above I used the term genuinely smitten. Perhaps you think I succumbed to hyperbole, to cheap rhetoric?
Fine, then you amigos, study these pictures and decide for yourselves.
Fortunately for Manhattans elite, on Nov. 17, 1962, a man they love to hate, J. Edgar Hoover, foiled a Castroite plan to incinerate and entomb thousands of them. Cuban agents had targeted Macys, Gimbels, Bloomingdales, and Manhattans Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set for detonation the following week, on the day after Thanksgiving,
Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust just weeks after Nikita Khrushchev foiled their plans for an even bigger massacre during the Cuban Missile Crisis. If the missiles had remained, Che Guevara confided to The London Daily Worker the following month, we would have used them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York City.
Che Guevara murals, by the way, decorate New Yorks East Harlem.
Whether he did or not, he’s an ass. And yes, he’ll be the next mayor.
What if he honeymooned in the killing fields of Cambodia?
That ok, too, jerk?
(wasn’t calling you a jerk, kaslin)
My (sad) predictions for the future of New York City:
De Blasio will win.
He will impose every imaginable socialist scheme to tax and "punish" the wealthy with the help of a compliant City Council.
The wealthy will tell him "f-- you" and abandon New York in droves...
He will then have to put more of tax burden on the middle class to make up the revenue lost from the wealthy.
The middle class that are able will tell him "f-- you" and abandon New York.
The City will be a bankrupt wasteland of poor people demanding social services and not enough productive people left to pay them. (see Detroit)
Move to Red Hampshire...the quota for NY'ers in the South has been reached.
Respectfully, the author, Humberto Fontova, is one of the good guys. He is a contributor to the anti Castro website Babalu Blog http://babalublog.com/
Admittedly, the headline is a bit confusing, but it was probably created by the Townhall.com editor, as authors usually don’t write that part of the article.
Please view the body of his work, and possibly reconsider your statement. On the other hand, if your sentiment was about the NYC Mayoral candidate, carry on ! :) Thank you.
Of course not. I didn’t write the article, I only copied and posted it. I also doubt you meant the author, unless you missed the question mark at the end of the title
The new anthem of New York is : The Internationale
Too bad we'll lose the big museums and the Statue at the same time.
ON THE ROAD TO SERFDOM - 73% OF NEWYORKERS PUT THEIR DESTINY IN THE HANDS OF A COMMUNIST
Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it. - John Adams, Letter to Abigail Adams, 1777
When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws dont protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed.

Obama/de Blasios fait accompli Under de Blasio New York will suffer a worse devastation than 9/11.
