New York City’s Marxist Power Couple

Bill De Blasio, former aide to socialist New York City Mayor David Dinkins, faces law-and-order Republican candidate Joe Lhota on November 5 for the crown of King of New York.  De Blasio seems to have become the darling of the media for his progressive views and his irreproachable wife, for obvious reasons.
AIM - De Blasio’s support for communist regimes in Cuba and Nicaragua, and his embrace of Islam as an emerging political force, were highlighted in a recent New York Times article. The paper also noted his illegal “honeymoon” to Communist Cuba. However, the mysterious trip occurred in either 1991or 1994, depending on which paper you read, and much about the nature of the travel remains unknown.
Our review of documents concerning de Blasio’s involvement in the communist-front Nicaragua Solidarity Network confirms that notes of one meeting in 1991 say that he stated that Islam was an emerging “power,” and wondered if there were “progressive elements” in Islam “we can work with.”
De Blasio, who is white, married a black woman and former lesbian, Chirlane McCray, and they have had two children together. Modern-day progressives usually consider it wrong to even discuss the option of voluntarily leaving the homosexual lifestyle, but they have let the matter of McCray’s rejection of lesbianism pass without critical comment.
There is no indication that McCray abandoned Marxism after living in an enclave known as the Combahee River Collective.The “collective” has been depicted by the media as a respectable group of feminist intellectuals, who were merely “radical” in some of their thinking. 
The Combahee River Collective had issued a “revolutionary” 1977 statement saying, “We realize that the liberation of all oppressed peoples necessitates the destruction of the political-economic systems of capitalism and imperialism as well as patriarchy. We are socialists because we believe that work must be organized for the collective benefit of those who do the work and create the products, and not for the profit of the bosses.
