Video of the Day: De Blasio goes full Communist, calls for nationalizing industries to deal with coronavirus

While appearing on MSNBC Saturday, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio went full communist and told Joy Reid the answer to the coronavirus is a “nationalization, literally a nationalization, of crucial factories and industries that can produce the medical supplies that can prepare this country for what we need.”

For those not familiar with the concept of socialism, which is a mere gateway to full-on Communism, what de Blasio proposes is nothing less than government ownership of the means of production–the very definition of socialism.

BILL DE BLASIO: Here’s reality. This is a war-like situation. We’re in a wartime scenario —


DE BLASIO: — with Mar-a-Lago attitude being used by the federal government, right? It’s so laid back. And I don’t understand it. And by the way, testing? How about ventilators? Where is the federal government making sure that our hospitals have the ventilators we’re going to need? Where is the federal government when it comes to surgical masks? Getting them distributed where they’re needed.

This is a case for a nationalization, literally, a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.

Talk about never letting a crisis go to waste…
