During his inauguration yesterday, Bill de Blasio laid out a blueprint for a Marxist city, one he hopes will inspire the country. Judging from the way things have been going, it probably will. We can all be Detroit. Yes we can.
Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr. His mother’s maiden name was de Blasio. He changed his name in 1983 to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. By 1990, when he was about 30-years of age, he realized who he was and started calling himself Bill de Blasio. He legally changed it in 2002 when he was absolutely certain as to who he was. He is now Mayor Bill de Blasio and the question is, do people know who he is?
His inauguration took place yesterday on the plantation – New York City.
Bill de Blasio and his family wanted to send their first phony message to the people by taking the subway to the inauguration. I’m sure they won’t be riding around in the limos or other special vehicles afforded them. They will be on the subway every day.
The inauguration began with an invocation in which the preacher said we are in a civil war, we need a new Emancipation Proclamation, and he hoped ‘the plantation called NYC be the city of God, a city set up on the hill, a light shining in darkness…’ ‘Oh God, Oh God, break every chain, break every chain…’
We aren’t North Korea yet, but maybe we could get there with deBlasio. Go to the 04:25 mark and watch the young man, an employee of de Blasio’s, on the left of the screen, throwing his arms up over-and-over to get the crowd to cheer their phony cheers. This inauguration was more like a game show taping than an inauguration.

If you will notice, most of the greeters are black, some are Asian and a handful are white. Something about that says staged to me.
When Bill took the oath, he swore to uphold the constitution. What do you think the chances are that he will?
De Blasio thanked his family, supporters and the city for ‘taking on the elite’ and pushing for change.
‘When I said we would take dead aim at the tale of two cities, I meant it. And we will do it. I will honor the faith and trust you have placed in me. And we will give life to the hope of so many in our city. We will succeed … as one city.’
He will attack the rich as promised, but probably not his friends.
Here are the highlights according to the AP:
He emphasized income inequality which was parroted by Bill Clinton. The income inequality has been caused more by the Democrats and they will do more of it by taking money from those who are productive until they are no longer productive.
Communist and racist, Harry Belafonte, was happy to speak at the inauguration and talked about The Tale of Two Cities which will quickly come to fruition under de Blasio leadership.
Belafonte said NYC has the largest prison population because of race which is the result of human indifference. He railed against stop and frisk and wants Bill to fix the justice system which undoubtedly means unequal justice in favor of blacks.
He invoked FDR, MLK Jr, Bobby Kennedy and, of course that ineffectual communist, Cesar Chavez, et al.
He lauded Bill’s morals.
Bill thinks he has the right to everyone else’s money. It’s hard to see that as moral.
Far-left loon, Susan Sarandon was in attendance. Last time I saw her, she was parading around Occupy Wall Street wishing all the craziest people success. Also in attendance was Bertha Lewis, The ACORN maven.

The entire Tale of Two Cities mantra is a mischaracterization. The gap between rich and poor has increased under the Democrats.
Obama and his policies increased the acceleration of the income gap:

‘Under Bush, the 1% captured a disproportionate share of the income gains from the Bush boom of 2002-2007. They got 65 cents of every dollar created in that boom, up 20 cents from when Clinton was President. Under Obama, the 1% got 93 cents of every dollar created in that boom. That’s not only more than under Bush, up 28 cents. In the transition from Bush to Obama, inequality got worse, faster, than under the transition from Clinton to Bush. Obama accelerated the growth of inequality,’ according to nakedcapitalism.
De Blasio is the first Democratic mayor since 1993 if people are to believe Bloomberg is not a Democrat. De Blasio is NYC’s first communist mayor.
He calls himself a liberal which is absurd. He will lead without transparency and will take control. There will be nothing liberal about him.
He has promised that one of his first acts will be the destruction of the horse and buggy rides in Central Park, a $19 million a year business. The reason? A fake horse abuse problem conjured up by some of his animal rights supporters. Many of the horses will end up in the glue factory. The act will also free up some very expensive real estate (the stables) that a friend of his has his eye on, according to some of the horse car drivers.
In his speech, de Blasio called for a tax increase on the wealthy to pay for universal pre-kindergarten.
“We do not ask more of the wealthy to punish success,” he said. “We do it to create more success stories.”
He also pledged to improve economic opportunities in minority and working-class neighborhoods. Working class neighborhoods refers more to union workers and minorities than the average Joe.
DeBlasio cut his teeth in politics working with NYC’s most incompetent mayor – David Dinkins. Hopefully that is not an omen of things to come.
His people lost FDR’s bible which was used for the swearing in but it turned up hours later after an exhaustive search. It showed up on a landing. Expect to see a lot more of this type of incompetence.
If you are wondering in which direction the country is headed, you only need to look to New York City. As comptroller Scott Stringer said,
“And just as America has historically looked to New York for inspiration, so the country once again turns its eyes toward us today, to this city, to our people, for a blueprint of a thriving hopeful future, to a city that puts people above politics, and shared prosperity above individual success.”
Did you notice that all the people screaming about income inequality are all super rich?
