Bill de Blasio’s proposed speaker is a joke with a painful punch line

Bill de Blasio wants Melissa Mark-Viverto to become his speaker. Her affiliations with far left causes have been exposed. She lobbied for five Cuban intelligence agents who were convicted of spying against the United States. She also petitioned for the release from jail of a leader of the Puerto Rican FALN.
Hey, if we can’t discount her for support of traitorous causes then we might as well let a pedophile run the school system or a Nazi supervise the temples. She is everything our institutions have fought against and yet now Bill de Blasio invites her to head up the city council. It would be like sending Alger Hiss to Yalta. Oh, that’s right, FDR did that.

No surprise that de Blasio backs his pro-Cuban councilwoman. He himself was married in Cuba, vacationed in Cold War Russia and basked in Nicaragua. While one can’t quite say that these are evidence of sedition, they’re sure not evidence of patriotism. They’re sure not indicative of loyalty to our country.

Are we kidding? What self-hatred allows us to elect or appoint our enemies to run our government? Are we stupid? Or have we become so unpatriotic that we want to see our Humpty Dumpty country tumble down? Egghead academic liberals open cracks in our system. With such ambiguous loyalties in our government, all the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men will never put our country together again.

Melissa Mark-Viverto is a joke. Bill de Blasio is a joke. Obama is a joke. But the punch line of all three will hit us right in the face and the pocketbook. I know how to fight. Do you? Lot of good it will do me when the muggers have weapons and I am armed with much-maligned conservative ideas.

I guess it all makes sense when you look at our President. He was born to a Muslim father, Barack Obama, Sr., and received an education in Indonesia from his second Moslem father, Barry Soetoro. Yet at a time when Muslims were our most consistent enemy and had already knocked down the World Trade Towers, we elected Obama.

Obama’s background should have disqualified him automatically, no matter if he had converted to Christianity under the anti-American Reverend Wright.

If de Blasio weren’t such a hardcore, anti-capitalist leftist he might get embarrassed by his position and speak out against Mark-Viverto. Fat chance. All he seems to care about is pre-K and moving society in a socialistic direction toward failure. His priorities are all screwed up.

De Blasio believes in income equality. He doesn’t believe in making a level playing field so that everyone can earn according to his talents.  He believes in taxing the rich and giving to the poor so that neither group moves beyond its boundaries. Income equality for him is solved by reapportionment rather than opportunity. He has no faith in the ability of the poor to improve their situation. He condescends to the poor while pretending to be their loving leader. He has no belief in the American Dream.

He is like Obama who was elected to fix the economy and spent his first term tearing it down by concentrating on the bankrupting Affordable Health Care.

Does Bill de Blasio really think that pre-K is essential to the economic capital of the world? Does he dream that pre-K will make our city streets safe? Is he going to send six year olds out there with toy bows and arrows to shoot the murderers and the pedophiles?
