Spoken like a true communist - the New York City mayor

From Breitbart:

De Blasio: Coronavirus ‘Is a Case for’ ‘Nationalization of Crucial Factories and Industries’
On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) stated that the coronavirus outbreak is a case for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”

De Blasio said, “This is a war-like situation. We’re in a wartime scenario with a Mar-a-Lago attitude being used by the federal government, right? It’s so laid back, and I don’t understand it. And by the way, testing, how about ventilators? Where is the federal government making sure that our hospitals have the ventilators we’re going to need? Where is the federal government when it comes to surgical masks, getting them distributed where they need? This is a case for a nationalization, literally a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need. Hand sanitizer, people are going crazy, I don’t blame them, trying to get hand sanitizer.”

He added, “There should be a national approach to ensuring max — every factory that can make hand sanitizer should be on 24/7 shifts and the distribution should be go[ing] to the places that need it most.”

This is straight out of the communist playbook. Want to see what happens when a centralized government nationalizes industries? Just look at Cuba. Look at Venezuela. Look at China's history (200,000,000 people dead). Look at Russia's history (only 100,000,000 people dead there).

In a just world, Warren Wilhelm will get his a** kicked to the curb next election. The pendulum is swinging back and people are seeing what capitalism can do for everyone - the rising tide that lifts all boats.
