Pundits have said that Hillary Clinton is moving to the left to compete with Bernie Sanders and because of the pressure from the left-wing of her party, but Hillary has always been on the far left. If you want to know who Hillary Clinton is, you don’t need to go any further than Bill de Blasio. A Clinton attorney explained that Hillary is a de Blasio Progressive.
If there was any doubt that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is a Marxist, his inaugural speech should have dispelled all doubts. One should also note that Hillary Clinton nodded in agreement throughout his speech which was littered with Marxist tenets.
Clarifying her belief system was Lanny Davis, former counsel to Bill Clinton.Hillary and Bill Clinton were guests of the mayor at the inauguration and they are close friends according to Lanny Davis. De Blasio worked on her senate campaign and they remain friends. Davis told Megyn Kelly in January 2014 that Hillary is a Progressive Liberal just as de Blasio is.
De Blasio told the New York City residents that he was going ‘to ask the rich to pay just a little bit’ more so he can pay for government-controlled universal pre-K and after-school programs. Hillary nodded and smiled as he said it.
The rich in NY are already the most heavily taxed in the country.
De Blasio began with what has become a collectivist slogan, It Takes a Village, and then turned to nod and smile at Hillary who wrote the book, It Takes a Village, a term she did not coin. It’s an old African proverb.
He spoke of HUD and their ‘big ideas’ and she nodded enthusiastically. HUD of course was behind forcing banks to give mortgages to the poor who couldn’t afford them, leading to a flood of foreclosures during the economic crisis five years ago. They are also busy social engineering neighborhoods throughout the country.
De Blasio thanked Mayor Dinkins for ‘making New York a safer city.’ Crime and murder rates skyrocketed under Dinkins. The truth is the opposite of De Blasio’s pronouncement. De Blasio wants social justice, income equality, and government control over children from the pre-K level on. Obviously it is what Hillary wants as well or she wouldn’t have shown her enthusiastic support as he spoke.
He said that New Yorkers ‘blazed the trail of progressive reform.’ His movement is about ‘economic justice,’ which means he believes the government has the right to take as much of other peoples’ money as it wants. He ‘will take dead aim at The Tale of Two Cities’ and he ‘meant it,’ he said.
De Blasio said he would expand the ‘paid sick leave law’ and force it on private business. Big developers will be required to build more affordable housing, aka section 8. Hillary smiled and nodded.
He railed against the growing gap between rich and poor which his party has caused to grow in a way we have not seen since The Great Depression.
DeBlasio is an ardent supporter of Common Core which has become a vehicle for socialist government propaganda. I hate to quote Naom Chomsky but this quote fits, ‘Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state.’
He concluded his speech by saying he ‘will rebuild communities from the bottom up’. De Blasio fancies himself a social engineer. He defined New York as ‘a city that fights injustice and inequality.’
To believe this, you must abandon your ideas of earned success and individualism. It is not the individual, it is the government. It is not earned success, you didn’t build that.
De Blasio will ‘make New York more fairer (sic) more just, a more Progressive place…it begins today.’
All this brought smiles and nods from Hillary Clinton.
De Blasio wants to take money from one group of people to give it to another he feels are more deserving. It is what Hillary wants too.
It’s legitimized theft.
Lanny Davis, who served as special counsel to Bill Clinton, was on The Kelly File in January, 2014, and he was asked if Hillary’s presence at the inaugural meant that she planned to take the country in the same direction that de Blasio plans to take New York City.
Davis, a good friend of the Clintons, said the Clintons are Progressive Democrats as is he. That’s what makes Democrats Democrats, he said. It is why his father loved Franklin Roosevelt.
Megyn Kelly mentioned that the new mayor, de Blasio, made some very far-left statements, particularly with his attacks on the rich. The class division that Marxists are so enamored with.
Lanny Davis said that de Blasio ‘is a good Progressive.’ He didn’t say the Clintons were to the left or right of him, he said ‘We are all Progressives.’
Davis didn’t say she would do things differently, he said she would have put it differently and say it in a different way.
Davis said that Bill Clinton was a Progressive Democrat but he balanced the budget. Bill Clinton proved you can be a Progressive and grow jobs, balance the budget, and it worked because he supported the free market. What Lanny failed to mention is it was Newt Gingrich closing down the government that helped Bill Clinton find religion.
From what Lanny said and from her reaction to Bill de Blasio’s Marxist speech, we can expect our Marxist regime to continue and worsen if a Hillary presidency comes to pass.
Democrats are now defining themselves as Progressives. The extreme wing of the Democratic party is in power.
Progressivism is a euphemism for Marxism and it is very radical. Marxists are patient people. They are willing to wait and bide their time. They no longer need a violent revolution, only a political revolution through gradualism.
There might be a different means to the end, but Hillary and de Blasio have the same goals. It sounds like she mightl be more subtle about it.
