From Mark Wachtler at Opposition News:
As more Americans slowly move from the political center to one of the two extremes, the groups and people on the far left and right gain strength, supporters and power. Two of those entities – NY Mayor Bill de Blasio on the left and the American Freedom Party on the right – despise each other. And AFP leaders released a statement this week showing exactly what they think of New York’s controversial Mayor after two NYPD officers were murdered by a racially charged, hate-filled assassin.
Showing just how much police officers, especially in New York, hate NY Mayor Bill de Blasio, instead of morning their fallen fellow officer and showing respect at his funeral, an army of attending NYPD officers used the solemn event to air their political grievances by turning their backs to the Mayor in front of dozens of news cameras. At a recent graduation ceremony, police officers in attendance loudly booed the Mayor as he addressed the crowd.
Now, the American Freedom Party has joined NYC police officers in condemning de Blasio. In fact, two days ago the AFP published a report titled, ’10 Quick Facts you may not know about NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio’. It could have easily been named, ‘top 10 reasons NY Mayor de Blasio is a Communist’.
From the American Freedom Party website:
Here are ten interesting facts you may not know about New York City’s Communist Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was elected in 2013 with a whopping 72% of the vote. The leftist mayor is accused of fostering an environment that led to the tragic execution-style racial assassinations of two NYPD officers on Saturday.
•Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr., on May 8, 1961. He first changed his name to the hyphenated Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm, adding his mother’s maiden name. In 2002, he dropped the “Warren” and the “Wilhelm,” and changed his name for a second time to what it is currently, Bill de Blasio.
•Bill de Blasio was the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign in 2000.
•Bill de Blasio was a fervent supporter of the Marxist Sandinista government in Nicaragua in the 1980s, a government that was backed by the Communist Soviet Union and Cuba.
•At the height of Cold War tension, while still a student at New York University, de Blasio toured the Communist Soviet Union in 1983.
•His first job was in 1984 with the NYC Department of Juvenile Justice.
•Bill de Blasio received a master’s degree in International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, the same school attended by Barack Obama.
•Bill de Blasio ran Democrat New York Congressman Charlie Rangel’s re-election campaign in 1994.
