When leftists tall you who they are, you should believe them.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is a far-left Democrat, but maybe people didn’t realize just how far left until now.
He actually quoted Karl Marx, the author of the Communist Manifesto, during a recent radio interview.

De Blasio called out after quoting Karl Marx during radio interview
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio quoted Karl Marx, author of the “Communist Manifesto,” on Friday, prompting some pushback on social media.
Noting that he wasn’t focused on elite interests, De Blasio told WNYC radio: “I am tempted to borrow from Karl Marx here.” According to the New York Post, he added: “There’s a famous quote that ‘the state is the executive committee of the bourgeois’ and I use it openly to say, ‘No.'”
“I actually read that as a young person and I said, ‘That’s not the way it’s supposed to be,'” he said.
De Blasio’s press secretary was apparently fine with his boss quoting the father of communism to make his point.
“Show me the lie!” he tweeted alongside De Blasio’s remarks. “Bill de Blasio’s Press Secretary appreciates materialistic approach of his boss’s Communism,” tweeted New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz.
It should not be acceptable for any leader in America to quote Marx.

For anyone surprised the mayor would quote Karl Marx this morning, a reminder that in 2018 a spokesman told me: "The Mayor remains committed to the highest ideals of the Sandinistas," while adding "He is not blind to their faults."https://t.co/NL7waVCwFh

New York City will be so much better off when he is finally out of office.
