Jonathan Turley: NYC Mayor Warren Wilhelm [aka "Bill De Blasio"] Admits He's All for Eating the Rich

AOF: Turley, a law prof at George Washington U., is no conservative.  Still, he seems to be truly awakening to the character of the national Democrats (best understood via commentator Michael Walsh's description: "a criminal gang masquerading as a political party").

During the Democratic primary, I wrote about New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and his "eat the rich" pitch for votes. He pledged to "tax the hell out of the rich."   It did not work. Not only did de Blasio never get to one percent nationally. Worse yet, he polled at zero in his own New York city with a 58 percent unfavorable rating.  Yet, De Blasio later continued his anti-capitalism agenda including using the pandemic to renew calls to curtail capitalism and demonstrating a shocking lack of knowledge of basic economics.  Now de Blasio has declared the purpose of the New York public schools as redistribution of wealth and doubled down on that call after being criticized on Fox News.
Last week, de Blasio declared that he viewed the public schools as a tool for wealth redistribution and not just education:  "I'd like to say very bluntly our mission is to redistribute wealth. A lot of people bristle at that phrase. That is, in fact, the phrase we need to use."
His remarks drew criticism, including on Fox News.  That coverage led to the recent response from de Blasio:
I'm going to say it one more time in case Fox News is watching again: 'NYC mayor sees the redistribution of wealth as an important factor toward ending structural racism in education.' Exactly right. I don't get to say it very often, but Fox News got it exactly right. Amen. We are going to fight structural racism through redistribution, so Fox News, congratulations, fair and balanced coverage right there. If we think we're going to deal with structural racism and segregation without redistribution of wealth, we're kidding ourselves," the mayor added. "Nothing changes unless you put the resources behind it."

He can start with the Big Tech criminals who financed the recent fraudulent election.

Asking de Blasio to do anything for White,non-liberals is like asking President Xi to give up eating Chinese food.

I might not necessarily be against it if the "redistribution" came my way but most of these sharing the wealth schemes bypass the white middle class and want to send the wealth to negro's,hispanics & alien invaders.
