De Blasio: Liberalism “Sweeping the Nation”
New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has been fired up over his election, so much so that he believes what most people call the scourge of liberalism is about to sweep across the entire country.
Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio went down to Washington, D.C. today to meet with President Barack Obama, emerging emboldened that a “progressive movement” was sweeping the nation.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, which included 15 other newly-elected mayors, Mr. de Blasio said it was clear to him that the fight against inequality–which formed the centerpiece of his campaign–was gaining steam far beyond the five boroughs.
“You can’t have a room full of mayors–literally every corner of the country–all spontaneously saying to the president of the United States the same exact things from their own experience: Something’s going on here … So what we have to do is organize it and amplify it,” he told Politicker.
Organize and amplify? Isn’t that what happened to the country in 2008 and 2012? Where exactly has that gotten us?
You know, Detroit has also been swept away by liberalism. God help us if the nation continues to move in that direction.
