De Blasio Denounces Freedom, Praises “Heavy Hand of Government”

It was a short step from leaders who pay only the most obviously insincere lip service to economic freedom to rulers who don’t even pretend not to be authoritarian collectivists in the mold of Stalin and Castro. New York City has already taken it by electing Bill de Blasio:

“Everything you heard about me is true… I am not a free-marketeer… I believe in the heavy hand of government,” de Blasio stated matter-of-factly during an hour-long presentation to some of the city’s biggest real-estate developers.

This is good news for Texas and other parts of the country that still resemble America — until New York inevitably collapses and the rest of us are forced to bail it out.
