I love the fact that the right-wing extremists are calling the Mayor out for being a leftist (such as what is just being hinted at here, but surely will be developed in greater context: http://www.newsvine.com/_news/2011/01/24/5908789-mayor-nyc-probe-in-ariz-shows-illegal-gun-sales) - you should really talk to people who have to live in His City!
While He has done some commendable things for The Left, he remains a corporate tycoon whose interests are predetermined by His antidemocratic corporate constituency!
Do I agree with efforts at gun control? Of course I do. Am I grateful that he has spoken out against the abuse & intimidation of immigrants? Without question!
But to suggest that this makes him a leftist, or a voice for the people, or a champion of democracy is ludicrous! His corporate constituency is just of the mindset that it is not in their best interests to follow Beck & Palin into the ruins of postmodern society which they seem intent on creating - the End of Days which they will not rest until they see happen!
