What is really horrifying is that Red Bill is up for re-election and appears to be a shoo-in. The Democrat machine has a chokehold on this city that goes back to Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall. Mayor Giuliani was an aberration — a blip made possible by Mayor Dinkins, who very nearly singlehandedly destroyed this thriving metropolis.
Just as I warned and predicted, the communist in Gracie Mansion is making good on his red promises. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio carried out one of his most vicious campaign promises: closing charter schools. His attack on the poor’s only option for a good education was in service to the teachers union.
