The Second Amendment will likely prevent such nonsense.

Mr. de Blasio said it was clear to him that the fight against inequality–which formed the centerpiece of his campaign–was gaining steam far beyond the five boroughs.

“You can’t have a room full of mayors–literally every corner of the country–all spontaneously saying to the president of the United States the same exact things from their own experience: Something’s going on here … So what we have to do is organize it and amplify it,” he told Politicker.

The new meme is "inequality"...the Clown, following his boss Valerie, began spewing that crap a few days ago. And the puke mayors continue to repeat their little tin gods' lies.

This coming from the people in charge, I don’t think this will work very well in flyover country where most of the serfs live.

I’m sure he does have high hopes. He looked over at that jug-eared dope of a President and plate-in-the-head VP and said, “Hey if THEY could....”

No it won’t. We will very likely have a LOT of unused ammo in this country. People will wait until it is too late in the hopes that someone else will do what needs to be done.

Not Liberal Fantasy, it is the communist Tri-fecta...

Commies are nothing more than a Neo-Feudalistic movement.

Excerpt from David Horowitz’s DiscoverTheNetworks.org...

“Historian Ron Radosh describes de Blasio as: (a) “a far left radical whose ancestors are the New Left and the Communists”; and (b) “a bona fide red diaper baby” who, “like many of his generation ... kept his parents’ ... pro-Communist politics not far from his heart.” Both de Blasio’s parents were far leftists—most likely, members of the Communist Party USA or some of its numerous front groups. His mother, Maria de Blasio, worked in the early 1940s at the Office of War Information—a U.S. government agency staffed largely by pro-Soviet leftists who depicted the USSR in a positive light.

In 1983, while he was still at NYU, Bill de Blasio toured parts of the Communist Soviet Union. This was a period of significant Cold War tension between the United States and the USSR, as the Soviets were attempting to permanently solidify their nuclear superiority over the U.S. Notably, de Blasio at one time served as an organizer with the anti-nuclear, anti-American organization Physicians for Social Responsibility.

De Blasio took his first job in 1984 with the NYC Department of Juvenile Justice. Three years later, having recently earned a master’s degree at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, he was hired to work as a political organizer by the Quixote Center (QC), a Maryland-based, Catholic social-justice organization with Marxist leanings.

In 1988 de Blasio, an ardent supporter of Nicaragua’s Marxist Sandinista government—which was backed by the Soviet Union, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization—joined a number of his QC colleagues in a ten-day trip to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine to people who had been affected by the violent revolution that was raging there. (The Reagan administration, meanwhile, was giving financial and military aid to the Contras, who were seeking to overthrow the Sandinista regime.)

Upon returning home from Nicaragua, de Blasio began working for a New York-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health care in Central America. Continuing, moreover, to support the Sandinistas in whatever way he could, he joined the Nicaragua Solidarity Network of Greater New York, an organization that held meetings and fundraisers on their behalf. De Blasio also subscribed to the Sandinista party’s newspaper, Barricadda.

He continues to speak admiringly of the Sandinistas to this day, lauding the “humble” and “really inspirational” blend of “youthful energy and idealism” that they brought to the task of “trying to figure out what would [make their society] work better.” “I’m very proud to have been deeply involved in a movement that rightfully thought U.S. policy toward Central America was wrong-headed and counter-productive and not in line with our values,” de Blasio said in September 2013. “I’m proud to have been involved in the effort that was challenging that.”

In 1989 de Blasio served as a volunteer coordinator for the NYC mayoral campaign of Democrat David Dinkins. Following Dinkins’ victory, de Blasio became an aide in City Hall.

When asked in 1990 to describe his political views, de Blasio replied that he was an advocate of “democratic socialism.” In the mid-nineties, he served as executive director of the New York branch of the New Party, a pro-socialist, ACORN-affiliated entity to which Barack Obama likewise belonged.

In 1994 de Blasio managed New York Congressman Charles Rangel’s re-election campaign. When de Blasio married former lesbian activist Chirlane McCray that same year, the couple honeymooned in Fidel Castro’s Cuba, in violation of the U.S. ban on travel to that country.”

De Blasio is now suffering from the disease that afflicts all New York City mayors: hubris and delusions of grandeur.

This is a pretty impressive city, in spite of all the trash talking about it. To land at JFK or LGA at night is a science-fiction experience. But it goes to their head. Even the great mayor Rudy kind of lost his perspective, and thought he could be president with Kerik at his side. Bloomberg we all know is the Energizer Bunny of Buzzkill.

So I think the bloviating progressive is letting his imagination go away with him. He actually thinks Obama is copying the big-city mayors. Shows how out of touch he has been with national affairs.

Obama at least is still talking about equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome, which is what the untested mayor-elect probably thinks he’s going to be able to achieve.

He always knew he was wonderful, and wow, now everyone else thinks so too. Sugarplums are dancing in his head: governor (which has never happened to any NYC mayor), then the sky’s the limit. It’ll be fun to watch.

No surprise commie De Blasio was a big fan of Mandela.

Mandela on Castro and the Cuban revolution:
“From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orquestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution. … Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”

On the U.S. war with Iraq:
“If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.”

The higher comrade de Blasio’s profile the better for America. He is an insane Marxist whose stunts will embarrass the national Democrats from day one. It's just too bad that it will only be fun to watch and we won't be able to capitalize on it because Bone head will grant amnesty and destroy America in the end anyway.

Those quotes were from Nelson Mandala. But De Blasio obviously isn’t an American patriot. He is way far left. He supported the Soviets, Sandinistas and Castro.

This is such a one-party town. We need someone special to beat them (or a moneybags). I remember the NY County Committee meeting where we gave Rudy the nomination. Someone had brought noisemakers by the bagsful and handed them out at the door. When it got close to the time Rudy was to appear (he and his security detail never arrived on time or through the expected doorway), they started going. Roy Goodman stood on the platform flabbergasted. In all his years as state senator and county chair he had never seen enthusiasm like this. It went on and on. He couldn’t get the amazed smile off his face.

We need another person who grabs people’s hearts and imaginations to win. That’s how it seems to be these days. De Blasio did that with his dream family.
