De Blasio’s agenda pulls from OWS ideology

Posted by on Sep 18, 2013 at 8:10 am

Occupy Wall Street turned two years old yesterday, and Bill de Blasio didn’t even send a birthday cake.

The ingrate.

For if ever a politician has owed spoiled, bad-tempered kids a loud shout-out, it’s the 2013 Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City.

Indeed, it’s difficult to find any room between Occupy’s absurd animating ideology — that the city is an embarrassment of economic inequality, generally racist in origin — and de Blasio’s own campaign sophistries.

Occupy came first, of course, and then de Blasio picked its philosophical pockets. And therein resides his debt.

For Occupy’s principal contribution — if that’s the correct word — to the conventional wisdom during its months-long demonstration was to normalize the notion that New York City is an economic and social dystopia. When the media repeats a lie often enough, it might just as well be true.

Full story.

    From the Nassty York Times…

    Mr. de Blasio, whose last remaining rival for the Democratic nomination conceded this week, enjoys support from 65 percent of likely voters, compared with 22 percent who back Mr. Lhota, according to a WNBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released on Tuesday.

    That 43-point gap would be intimidating for nearly any candidate. But Mr. Lhota must also win over an electorate in a city in which registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans by nearly six to one, and the low poll numbers could further depress his already lackluster fund-raising.

    NYC gets what they deserve: a far-Left anal pore who will do little to keep their City prosperous.
