NYC Mayor and democratic presidential candidate Bill De Blasio must be spending his downtime incorporating the Engels manifesto into his political propaganda. This outright communist, who by the way was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr (Austria-Hungary heritage?) couldn’t have paraphrased private property in the Manifesto any better. Let me allow you to look at Marx and Engels’ take on private property first:
This includes the abolition of private property. Marx says that Communists have been “reproached” for desiring to abolish the “right” of acquiring private property through the fruits of one’s labor. … This goal of communism challenges bourgeois freedom, and this is why the bourgeois condemn the Communist philosophy.
This idea of private property has really been nagging at them for a long time. Never fear, the useful idiots of our time are alive and well, and spitting out the same polemic economic ideals. Listen to what comrade De Blasio has to say on the issue of private property:
“What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city [NYC], of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, 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. And I would, too. Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, and how development would proceed. They’d [NYC Residents] love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality.”
Look, there was a day when traitors like this would be called out for what they were. Then they would be slipped into a straitjacket and taken out to the country never to be heard from again. Let’s get back to the socialist workers’ bill of rights. Can one use the terms socialist and bill of rights in the same sentence?
Anyway. On the surface, the workers bill of rights sounds harmless enough. It proposes two weeks paid vacation, family first scheduling and raising the minimum wage to $15 nationwide. Not radical in a Marxist sense. So what do his constituents think of this proposal. Fellow New Yorker Sam Lam, who owns Tenchodo Laundromat in Queens, laments, “It’s punishing to hire a worker at this point.”
Small business owners listen up.
Andreas Koutsoudakis, who owns Tribeca’s Kitchen with his father, says, “There’s nothing wrong with helping people out, giving some better conditions for employees, but that only works if there’s some breathing room for small businesses.”
New Yorkers have to be the biggest lemmings in the world to elect a Marxist mayor in the epicenter of capitalism. The thin blue line will do nothing to the protected groups for the time being. We see this as policeman are doused with water and abused by residents in Harlem, with only a temporary slap on the wrist. However, as any good fellow traveler knows, these Orwellian roles will be reversed if a De Blasio style government were put in place. The authoritarian government would crush this abuse in a moment, as is being done in China. Political indoctrination and forced cultural assimilation against the region’s Uighurs, Kazakhs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups would be a foreshadowing of the reeducation camps that follow.
Fools like De Blasio display their insanity polemically and are still cradled by the media and the intolerant left.
So, do you still want the socialist workers’ bill of rights?
