The New Huey Long Of New York: Newly Elected Mayor Bill de Blasio, "The Kingfish" of Racial Tension!
American politics has it’s own harbinger of success and failure.
Like the “Rockin Robin” of springtime, Bill Clinton’s appearance at the newly elected NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s inauguration portends ominous signs of “Liberal Fascism” replete with anti-white rhetoric; class conflict; and impending political cronyism.
Lest you think me too pessimistic, let me refer you to NYTimes article entitled , “Taking Office De Blasio Vows To Fix Inequity” by Michael M. Grynbaum. (posted earlier)
Nothing strikes a more discordant chord of disharmony than the following words of populist sentiment:
“We are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that THREATENED TO UNRAVEL [my emphasis] the city WE LOVE…Its urgency is read on the faces of our neighbors and their children, as families STRUGGLE TO MAKE IT, AGAINST INCREASINGLY LONG ODDS.”
That is the only the opening notes of the clarion call for class warfare!
Let’s see how the 21st century populist a la Louisiana’s Huey Long, De Blasio continues his unabated diatribe against the invisible rich and nefarious wealthy:
“Gone was the solemn air of inaugurations past, replaced by the booming strains of DICO, SOUL, and DANCE MUSIC BY THE COMMODORES, MARVIN GAYE, and DAFT PUNK spun by a local D.J…… EVEN HILLARY CLINTON SWAYED WITH THE MUSIC". Those Swinging Clintons are the Houdinis of truth, integrity, and transparency, followed by our very own POTUS, Obama.
“The ceremony was an unusually AIRING OF THE CITY’S RACIAL AND CLASS TENSIONS [my emphasis], including a poem BRISTLING WITH FRUSTRATIONS about “ brownstones and BROWN SKIN PLAYING TUG-OF-WAR…. In the PLANTATION CALLED NEW YORK.” [all my emphasis].
"Mr. De Blasio, A CAREFUL CUSTODIAN of HIS POPULIST IMAGE, took pains to choreograph the appearance of a newly approachable, and INCLUSIVE CITY HALL… NOT SHOWING THE MANY POLITICAL OPERATIVES AND LOBBYISTS IN THE CROWD."
Then, we have one more racial zinger:
---“Ms. McCray (his wife), a poet herself, described a New York that was not LIGHTS, NOT BROADWAY, NOT TIMES SQUARE But COFFEE-COLORED-CHILDREN- PLAYING HOPSCOTCH ON WHAT IS LEFT OF A SIDEWALK.”
As you know by now, I grew up in the 1950’s in Black Harlem on 108th street. I don’t remember that we had La Grand Corniche of Cannes or Nice. I recall the sidewalks were always filled with dog shit, rubbish, and trash cans. And despite that array of ‘discarded city life’, we managed to play stick ball and chase each other using the tops of the trash cans as shields or weapons. I won a scholarship when I was 15 years old that enabled me to go to Cornell, far away from the city's strife.
But, of course, I am waxing poetic. The truth was a little more ugly. Since DeBlasio has an affliction, if not addiction, for the poor and lonely Sandinista Terrorists or any other group espousing ‘violence’ and ‘hate’, I do remember a gang of black ‘thugs’ trying to beat up on a ‘bunch of white boys’ who were called by such affectionate terms as ‘honkey’, ‘pillsbury’ and ‘faggot’.
For those Liberal New York Jews living near Zabars, on the Upper West Side, my first encounter with virulent anti-semitism was gratis of the ‘brown/black’ skinned ‘under privileged‘ youths.
“Kike”, “Christ Killer” were routine epithets of the black denizens of my ghetto who intimidated me and other white friends at Booker T Washington.
Therefore, Mr De Blasio, cut the populist nonsense! If you pursue that route of white hate, which is what you and your wife appear to be doing, then you will divide the city as you clearly want to do for your own political purposes.
The better part of me would hope that you are a smart enough politician to realize that Huey Long’s legacy was divisive, intrusive and at the end quite lethal … to him.
Remember, Mr DeBlasio, NYC is not Nicaragua. New Yorkers are not Sandinistas. Your mentor may have been Mayor Dinkins. But it may behoove you to remember that your immediate predecessor, Bloomberg, received only one dollar salary per year for his Mayoral work. However, he spent close to $700M dollars of his own personal wealth to improve the condition of his less fortunate New Yorkers.
Al Smith, may have been your model, but he was also part of a very sophisticated Jewish/Italian gang that helped elect your Presidential idol FDR, an extremely ruthless politician who was able to initiate and conduct two major world wars from a wheel chair.
The choice is yours. You can continue to elaborate on the "DECREPIT HOMELESS SHELTERS IN THE SHADOW OF GLEAMING MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR CONDOS" [my emphasis] … or you can decide to make your rhetoric more mature, intelligent, and cautious.
Otherwise, you will have pursue the course of all Liberal Fascists—Robespierre [beheaded]; Trotsky[axed]; and The Kingfish Huey Long –shot by Dr Weiss.
That’s not a threat, just a fact of the inevitable denouement of contrived civil strife infested with racial hatred, and anti-entrepreneurial sentiments.
Death becomes the inevitable retort to those who use Liberal Fascism and racial epithets as the tool of political manipulation and hierarchical despotism.
DeBlasio! recant your hateful, class/racial warfare rhetoric! In case you were too busy helping the Sandinistas, let me remind you that Marvin Gaye also sang about Peace and Love!
