New York City: Comrade Mayor is sworn in

WASHINGTON,  January 1, 2014 — Comrade Bill De Blasio was sworn in this morning as the Mayor of New York City.

“Comrade” is the right title for the new mayor. De Blasio is an unrepentant Marxist, though he does not like to use that term. De Blasio is the guy who was cheering for the Sandinistas in Nicaragua in the 1980s while real Americans were trying to free that nation from Marxist tyranny. De Blasio is the comrade who showed his solidarity with communism in 1991 by taking his honeymoon to Cuba.

Yes, while much of the world was being liberated from communist oppression, De Blasio did his part to support communism by going on a honeymoon in communist Cuba. Any bets on whether he tried to visit political prisoners in Castro’s jails?

De Blasio is starting off his reign as dictator of New York by dictating. 

He is dictating a group of people out of their jobs. These are the iconic horse drawn carriages in New York. De Blasio doesn’t like them and has claimed that somehow it is “inhumane.” A few days ago at a press conference he said, “We are going to get rid of the horse carriages. Period.”

That is it. Comrade De Blasio has spoken. New York doesn’t need a legislative body like the city counsel. They have a dictator now. Of course, Michael Bloomberg, the outgoing Mayor had his own delusions of dictatorial grandeur too.

Comrade De Blasio says one of his top priorities is income inequality. Of course, he is going to approach it from the Marxist point of view. So his plans will include dictating income equality. Never mind the fact that the Marxist idea of income redistribution has never worked. Marxists never let the fact their ideas don’t work get in the way of trying to implement them.

Marxists, like Comrade De Blasio, approach income equality with the idea that they are going to take away from the oppressors and give to the “have nots.” Their definition of the oppressors is those who are successful but are not members of their party. The end result is poverty.

Conservatives want to end income inequality as well, but conservative have a much better idea. Get government out of the way and let people make the most of their God-given talents. 

The difference between the conservative idea and the Marxist idea of Comrade De Blasio is that conservatism works.

Comrade De Blasio wants to take New York back in time to the 70’s. His policies will make New York an unsafe place, where criminals rule. They will bankrupt the city and make poverty skyrocket.

When New York City goes bankrupt, the Republicans should let it fail.

Far too often the GOP comes in as the savior of socialism. All the Republicans want to do is bail out the socialists. Let them fail.

Let New York City fail.

The dirty secret in America right now is that the only thing that is keeping most major American cities from going into bankruptcy is they are subsidized by the Federal Government.

These major cities, all of whom have left wing mayors, have destroyed their tax bases. They have pandered to the unions and to the constituencies of the left and spent money they don’t have so they can maintain power. The successful have fled to the suburbs, as have many businesses.

Unfortunately, thanks to federal government spending, those who have fled to red counties and red states are still forced to subsidize the failure of the far left.

Almost every major American city is only a few steps behind Detroit. Eventually most of them will go the way of Detroit. 

Republicans should just let Detroit go out of business. Something will arise out of the ashes of Detroit and replace it. Even now, entrepreneurship is working in Detroit. One of the most successful businesses there right now is touring the ruins of Detroit.  From bus tours to urban exploration, these tours are a booming business.

Perhaps ten years from now, there will be tours of the ruins of New York.

If New York fails, businesses and people will relocate to places where business and employment are welcome. If the people of New York want a communist Mayor, let them have the consequences of it. 

For Republicans, don’t bail New York out.

Let it and its communist Mayor fail.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
