Progs ticked off at Mayor Bill de Blasio for welcoming Amazon to New York City might want to dial their outrage back just a little bit. Because while de Blasio may be a crony capitalist, heβs also a Marxist at heart:
Bill de Blasio doesn't like private property. Maybe he should give his house to the government. pic.twitter.com/KhXu4aLctm

Well, some Marxist mayors are more equal than others, so fat chance.
Is that an actual quote?!?

Yes. Yes it is.

That's a scary and dangerous viewpoint.

NYC sounds like a scary place.

Land confiscation, income determination, visceral anger, very, very powerful federal government directly addressing citizen's day-to-day reality.

OMG. How does that guy get elected to anything.

Because a majority of NYC-ers are gluttons for punishment?
I swear I don't recognize the country my family & I immigrated to from the USSR. Not on the left or right. We escaped Europe, but it's worst ideas are following us here.
What de Blasio describes is nothing short of surrender. "Your dreams are dead, let govt take it from here."

What a mind numbing, scary statement. People fleeing socialism around the globe, but the mayor of the wealthiest city in America is actively campaigning for government controlled property and an end to private property rights. You get what you vote for.

This is the future liberals want. Until they have to live in it.
