The Mask Is Off: NY Mayor De Blasio Quotes Karl Marx In Interview (Audio)

The mask is finally off for all to see.  On Friday, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio actually quoted Karl Marx, the father of Communism, during his weekly radio appearance, the New York Post and others reported.

According to the Post, “de Blasio was asked about a recent report that said his “long-held antipathy toward well-heeled private sector interests” was jeopardizing the city’s economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis.”

De Blasio admitted that “my focus has not been on the business community and the elites,” before adding, “I am tempted to borrow from Karl Marx here.”

The Post added:

Hizzoner then went to recite from memory a concept expressed in Chapter 1 of the infamous “Communist Manifesto” written by Marx and comrade Friedrich Engels in 1848.

“There’s a famous quote that the ‘the state is the executive committee of the bourgeois’ and I use it openly to say, ‘No,’” de Blasio said.

“I actually read that as a young person and I said, ‘That’s not the way it’s supposed to be.’”

The mayor added: “The business community matters, we need to work with the business community, we will work with the business community — but the city government represents the people, represents working people, and mayors should not be too cozy with the business community, governors should not be too cozy with the business community.”

Here’s the audio:


Response was pretty much what you might think:

Indeed it is.  Of course, we’re not surprised.  De Blasio has shown his Marxism for quite some time.

Sure seems that way.

The Post notes de Blasio’s long-running love affair with Communists:

De Blasio has acknowledged past support for the former, communist Sandinista government of Nicaragua, where he went on a relief mission in 1988.

“They were in their own humble way, in this small country, trying to figure out what would work better,” he told the New York Times in 2013.

More recently, de Blasio has eagerly helped paint city streets to promote the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which was initially organized by “trained Marxists,” co-founder Patrisse Cullors reportedly admitted in a 2015 interview.

He and First Lady Chirlane McCray also went to Cuba for their 1994 honeymoon, flying there from Canada to illegally skirt an American travel ban against the communist island nation.

During his failed presidential bid last year, de Blasio sparked controversy by quoting a rallying cry associated with Guevara, the late Cuban communist revolutionary.

This, by the way, is the modern Democrat Party.  Let that sink in…
