NYC Mayor Goes Full Communist In Tirade Against Private Property

New York City's far-left mayor, Bill de Blasio, just went full-communist.

In a recent primary debate, as he runs for re-election, de Blasio went on an unhinged rant against private property - arguing that there's a "socialistic impulse" in people, who would apparently rather see a Soviet-style command economy where everything is "planned in accordance with their needs."

"What's been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property," said de Blasio.

"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," he added. "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 with their needs. And I would, too."

De Blasio gave the example of a new condominium building in Manhattan, where units started at $2 million. Decrying development that is "clearly not for everyday people," he added: "Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed." 

De Blasio was unconcerned that his comments were, well, basically a call for communism. 

New Yorkers would "love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality," he concluded.
