Well, the great revival of New York City was nice while it lasted. Once this tool is in office you can expect a return to the days of David Dinkins. Considering the countries favored by Democratic mayoral nominee Bill De Blasio, the days of Dinkins might be preferable.
Three leftist countries that drew Bill de Blasio’s interest over the past 25 years rank high for repression on the annual list compiled by Freedom House, a human-rights watchdog group.
The organization uses a point scale of 1 to 7 for political rights and civil liberties, with the higher number representing the most oppressive.
Cuba gets a 7 for political rights and a 6 for civil liberties.
Zimbabwe lands a grade of 6 on both issues.
And de Blasio’s beloved Nicaragua earns 5 points for political rights and 4 for civil liberties.
Freedom House rates that country as “partly free.”
Considering the loss of freedoms under the Obama regime, the United States is rapidly approaching Zimbabwe.
De Blasio, the city public advocate who is the Democratic nominee for mayor, is facing mounting criticism for his full-throated support of Nicaragua’s Sandinista government, which cracked down on dissenters and had close ties to communists.
De Blasio has also drawn fire for honeymooning in Cuba after his 1994 marriage to Chirlane McCray — a trip that violated a US travel ban.
The mayor-poll front-runner has also been criticized for joining legislators who welcome reviled Zimbabwe despot Robert Mugabe to City Hall in 2002 when de Blasio served on the City Council.
De Blasio has since said the Mugabe appearance was a “mistake.”
It’s only a “mistake” because he’s no being criticized for it. Anyone dumb enough to host a Communist racist like Mugabe should be barred from ever running for office. It’s quite likely New Yorkers are oblivious to what a hardline, leftwing extremist De Blasio, so they’ll suffer for their ignorance. The business community should also take a long look at this guy and plan accordingly. Anyone who likes Robert Mugabe will not be a friend to capitalism.
