He’s very proud of the work he did on behalf of the Communist insurgents, but hates when you bring it up. It’s a right-wing smear or something. If he’s so proud, why is he whining like a little bitch now?
Democrat Bill de Blasio says it’s silly that opponent Joe Lhota is attacking him for drawing from a “Marxist playbook” due to his past as a leftist activist.
“Joe Lhota’s attacks are becoming increasingly silly,” de Blasio said. “What I’m seeing from the other side is just a classic Republican tactic, a classic right wing tactic of division. And it’s something I think the people of the city will reject. It’s just an attempt at name calling and obscuring the real issues that face this city.”
Pointing out someone is a hardcore Marxist is now a right wing tactic of division and name calling. Um, OK.
Earlier Tuesday, de Blasio defended his support of the Nicaraguan Sandinistas by comparing himself to FDR.
“I’m a progressive and I’m a Democrat and I’m very much in the tradition of Franklin Roosevelt,” de Blasio said on WPIX TV, explaining why he traveled to Nicaragua more than two decades ago to support a government the U.S. was trying to topple.
“I think U.S. policies at the time were wrong. I was very proud to be involved with that work,” he added.
So why are you sniveling about it being brought up? You can’t have it both ways. Oh, wait a minute, of course you can. You’re a Democrat.
