New York City Elects A ‘Sandinista’ As Its Mayor

From the Daily Caller:

New York City elects socialist mayor, because why not?

By Will Rahn |November 5, 2013

Bill de Blasio will be the next mayor of the nation’s largest and most important city. He will be the first Democratic mayor of New York City since 1993, when Rudy Giuliani defeated David Dinkins amid high crime rates and racial strife.

Of course, the illegally three term mayor, Michael Bloomberg is actually a life-long Democrat who only ran as a Republican so he wouldn’t have to win the crowded Democrat primary.

De Blasio worked in Dinkins’ City Hall, and prior to that volunteered with the radical socialist Sandinista movement in Nicaragua.

At age 26, de Blasio “went to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine in the middle of a war between left and right. But he returned with something else entirely: a vision of the possibilities of an unfettered leftist government,” according to the New York Times…

But wait, there’s more. From Discover The Networks:

Bill de Blasio

Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr. on May 8, 1961 in New York City and grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts… [I]n 1983, he legally changed his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm, adding his mother’s maiden name to his identity. In 2002 he changed his name for a second time and became Bill de Blasio.

Why do Democrats have to change their names so much? (Cf. Gary Hartpence.)

In 1983, while he was still at NYU, de Blasio toured parts of the Communist Soviet UnionDe Blasio at one time served as an organizer with the anti-nuclear, anti-American organization Physicians for Social Responsibility. De Blasio was hired to work as a political organizer by the Quixote Center (QC), a Maryland-based, Catholic social-justice organization with Marxist leanings.

In 1988 de Blasio, an ardent supporter of Nicaragua’s Marxist Sandinista government… joined a number of his QC colleagues in a ten-day trip to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine…

Upon returning home from Nicaragua, de Blasio… joined the Nicaragua Solidarity Network of Greater New York, an organization that held meetings and fundraisers on their behalf. De Blasio also subscribed to the Sandinista party’s newspaper, Barricadda. He continues to speak admiringly of the Sandinistas to this day…

When asked in 1990 to describe his political views, de Blasio replied that he was an advocate of “democratic socialism.” In the mid-nineties, he served as executive director of the New York branch of the New Party, a pro-socialist, ACORN-affiliated entity to which Barack Obama likewise belonged.

In 1994 de Blasio managed New York Congressman Charles Rangel’s re-election campaign. When de Blasio married former lesbian activist Chirlane McCray that same year, the couple honeymooned in Fidel Castro’s Cuba, in violation of the U.S. ban on travel to that country…

In other words, he is just another Democrat.

    To avoid the felony charges. They probably have numerous passports and other identities we know nothing about.

    John Carpenter had the right idea with “Escape from New York”. Those a-holes deserve what they voted for. Unfortunately, like Kalifornia, we’re probably going to end up paying for their stupidity in more ways than one.
