With Bill de Blasio making headlines for fanning the flames of racial tension between police and protesters its worth recalling newsworthy information about the New York City mayors dark past; that he was an active supporter of a brutal communist regime well known as one of the worst human rights abusers in Latin America.
Judicial Watch uncovered and reported the scandalous details last year. De Blasio was an active supporter of the communist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua in the 1980s. He was so enamored with Soviet-backed revolutionaries that he traveled to the capital city of the war-torn country, Managua, to aid their cause by participating in a relief mission. Upon de Blasios return to the United States, he joined the Nicaragua Solidarity Network of Greater New York (NSN).
JW examined the records of the NSN at the Tamiment Library & Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives, located on the campus of New York University (NYU) in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. The archive is also the NYU Reference Center for Marxist Studies. According to the archive record guide: The Nicaragua Solidarity Network of Greater New York (1985-2002), and its member organizations worked to support the Sandinista Revolution and to protest U.S. support of the counter-revolutionary military movement, aka the Contras, who also killed civilian supporters of the revolution, targeting medical and educational personnel in particular.
The records show de Blasio was an ardent supporter of the communist revolutionaries in Nicaragua, who raised funds for the Sandinistas and was a subscriber to the partys newspaper, Barricada (The Barricade). He traveled to Nicaragua in 1988 and became active in the NSN upon his return to the U.S. New Yorks mayor has been unapologetic about his involvement with a foreign Marxist political movement accused of slaughtering innocent civilians and practicing the disappearance technique of eliminating political foes.
In fact, the Sandinistas were renowned as one of Latin Americas worst human rights violators. During three years of revolution they carried out thousands of political executions and the disappearance of thousands more who were considered anti-revolutionary, according to a Russian-born scholar cited in a news article. By 1983 there were about 20,000 political prisoners held in the Marxist regimes jails, the highest number of political prisoners of any nation in the hemisphere with the exception of Fidel Castros communist Cuba.
This information is relevant because de Blasio is in the midst of a major crisis involving the citys police department. For starters he got rid of a successful crime-fighting program called stop-and-frisk because it disproportionately affects minorities. The initiative directed officers to stop and search people suspected of criminal activity. Leftist organizations, and de Blasio, claim it violates civil rights because a disproportionate amount of blacks and Hispanic were getting nabbed. Axing the program was the beginning of the war between de Blasio, who took office this year, and the police union.
The mayors popularity further plummeted during the national furor over the point-blank murder of two police officers in Brooklyn. Because de Blasio has supported anti-police protests nationwide, cops in his own city accuse him of fomenting an anti-police fervor that contributed to the cold-blooded murder of the two officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. The mayor also said that, as the parent of a biracial teenage son (de Blasios wife is black), he worries that his son wont be treated fairly by cops. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says de Blasio has to apologize to his officers for suggesting that theres a substantial and systemic racism in the New York City Police Department when there simply isnt.
Isn’t that why he was elected in the first place?
Im still predicting that the democracks will offer this turd up as their ext Presidential Candidate..
This was available to NYers before the election. They either voted because, typically, they don’t pay attention to anything more than headlines or they actively support that kind of nonsense. Rush is right about NYers being provincial.
Yep, the majority of voters were uninformed, didn’t care or voted for the D after his name, probably some of all.
Noo Yorik Siddy - the incubator of every Saul Alinsky tactic.
This is just a test case of how it may be made to work.
First, send a candidate in who is running under the radar. Then, when an unbalanced election is carefully groomed, send the “community organizers” fanning out into the neighborhoods, ginning up the fires quietly, but sparking them with plenty of oxygen and accelerant. Then puff it all up in a moment when the adults are not paying enough attention, sort of a flash mob at the voting locations.
DeBlasio a Marxist? Who’da thunk it? And don’t be shocked when he is re-elected by the leftist NYC electorate.
I feel sorry for any FReepers there. Like unto the California I left, a beautiful terrible place.
He’d actually be flattered by that photoshop.
He even looks the commie.
Every newspaper article should begin with “NY Mayor Bill de Blasio, if that is indeed his real name...”
He’s a communist. In most countries in the world, he would be in a party named “Communist.” Only in the USA is there a total taboo on the word “Communist.” He’s a communist and is a member of the communist party that won’t admit that it is: democrat.
I wonder what he thinks about HIS BUDDY, Ortega, now that Ortega is about to RIP UP THE JUNGLE in letting the Chinese build a second Panama Canal.
...be a good question for an enterprising young reporter to ask.
DeBlasio’s given name was Warren Wilhelm Jr. I kid you not.
The budding Communist could not travel to Cuba or Nicaragua and be seen as down for the struggle with a Teutonic name like Warren Wilhelm Jr.
So he took his mom’s maiden name, dropped his dad’s, and became Bill DeBlasio.
Even the most educated in NYC are idiots. They’re my friends and neighbors so I should know.
De Blasios Cuban vision for New York City
By Michael Goodwin
... lets look at Cuba, which, strictly by the numbers, reflects the paradise de Blasio describes. Fidel and Raul Castro had their way for 54 years and pulled off the socialist dream: The island nation had the least income inequality in the world, a survey found. North Korea also was off the charts.
Of course, there are some peculiar facts about Cuban exceptionalism. Everybody is equally poor, with average monthly wages of $19, while childrens shoes can cost nearly as much. (Everybody but the communist rulers, Fidel with 900 million dollars is among the richest chiefs of state in the world)
