De Blasio admits his ‘socialist impulse’ and lust for control

American Thinker: What is it about socialists that enables them to ignore the overwhelming evidence that short-circuiting market forces with government controls produces disaster every time it is seriously tried?  Maybe it is confidence in the effectiveness of the brainwashing efforts of the education establishment?  Or reliance on the media ignoring the actual causes of the starvation, poverty, and economic failure that followed Venezuela’s adoption of the socialist model?

Or maybe they just know that the lure of free (or artificially cheap) stuff overrides the lessons of experience?

Whatever the reason, New Yorkers with brains should be very afraid of the desires expressed by their mayor, Bill de Blasio, when it comes to housing in their city, in a long interview in New York Magazine, as highlighted by Fox News:

I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs.

The mayor is obviously referencing some of Karl Marx’s most famous words[i]: “From each according to his ability to each according to his needs.”

Market forces are anathema to his lust for control:

Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed[.] … And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents.

  1. Hang him for treason.
    And be done with it.

    Then move on to other traitorous bastards illegitimately in gov’t.
    Hang them, too.

    Continue until the country is cleared of Traitors.

    izlamo delenda est …

  2. What is it about socialists that enables them to ignore the overwhelming evidence that they’re not qualified to lead a parade let alone a city.

  3. De Blasio’s lesbian wife is going to get a run for her money if he ever meets Tank Abrams.

    That would be a match made in Moscow.

  4. Warning – history lesson!

    His father was a German-Engliohman and proud supporter of the “Marxist Messiah”, as a mid level leader of the Labor Party.

    After WW2 the Labor Party denied ever supporting Socialists. His father was forced to leave the Party and left in “self exile”. On Bill’s birth certificate is he Duetcher fathers Clan name “Wilhelm”! to help pretend he was not related to any socialists he changed his name about 25 years ago.

    But the Fondas (Jane + Pet) are Communists because their dad was! Bill is a Socialist because his dad was!

    Sometimes “the apple falls near the tree”!

    Once more for emphasis. 80 years ago Bill’s dad was an ardent, vocal supporter of Adi! (language lesson – Adits is Saxon diminutive for Adolph, a “Nik name”)

    Bills Socialist beliefes are no shock or surprise to those who took out their wallets and paid attention 20 years ago.
