This is made blatantly, nakedly clear by New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio. In his State of the City speech last week, he laid bare the premier goal of the Progressive-Democratic Party, even above doing away with ICE and with our borders generally. He said—and he meant every word of it:
Here’s the truth. Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. There’s plenty of money in this city. It’s just in the wrong hands.
His first sister is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY) who wants to raise taxes on those wrong hands to 70%—or more; she, like her fellow Party apparatchiks, have articulated no limiting principle to such raisings, they’ve carefully declined to say how much is one’s “fair share.”
After that, de Blasio’s brothers and sisters of the Party want free education and free, single-payer medical care for all, including illegal aliens (remember their open border demand).
How to pay for all of this Party largesse? The first goal: by taking all that money that’s in the wrong hands and giving to the correct, deserving holders of the money.
Mind you, who are the correct holders, who are the deserving holders, will be defined by those members of the Progressive-Democratic Party. They’re the ones who Know Better than those with the money, those who’ve earned the money, how that money should be used.
It isn’t their money, anyway. It’s the Party’s money. Party generously will let us have some of it for a period of time, though.
