Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Some folks never learn

Socialist is as socialist does.

Sounding eerily like the Sandinistas he once supported, the mayor of America’s largest city declared his love for heavy-handed central planning in surprisingly unguarded terms.

When asked about the enormous gap between New York’s rich and poor, the mayor responded:

What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development.

Yeah. And speaking of “standing in the way,” let’s all just ignore the hundreds of years of history that have proven beyond any reasonable doubt, again and again and again, that socialism does not work, has never worked, never will work, and cannot work. It’s all that stands in the way of your childish utopian fantasy being successfully realized at last—right Bill?

At this late date, there’s really only one interesting question here: who would be the bigger moron, Red Bill or the dimwits who elected his stupid commie ass?

  1. I am reminded of when Nixon was elected and the Hamptonites were stunned because no one they knew voted for him and they thought that they were the spokespeople for the pulse of America.

    It would be interesting to see how many, since income tax was inserted and bureaucracy installed in AMerica a definite ‘class’ system, how many times these who think themselves the pulse are stunned and how they reacted in defeat.

    I think if real Americans on both sides were given a composite of all those meltdowns, the adolescent and delinquent rage and stupidity, it might go a ways towards stripping the sheen from the celebs and notable quotables.

  2. I really find it hard to believe that these people can say such things with a straight face. If someone were to write a parody of a clueless idiot Marxist it would probably sound just like that. I mean, it’s almost Woody Allen like had Woody Allen written comedies about clueless idiot Marxist dimwitted New Yorkers.

    Kenny, Woody Allen didn’t write about that..he embodied it, not realizing he was his own most bizarre and contempt worthy character.
