Glenn Beck went off on Wednesday over Bill De Blasio‘s triumph in the New York City mayoral election. He warned that New York could descend into an extreme low point with a “communist” in charge, and things may get so bad, “New York will become the next Detroit.”RELATED: America's first openly Marxist big city mayor
Beck said in the 1970s New York was governed by “nightmarish progressive policies that aren’t even close to De Blasio” and projected a fear that the new Democratic mayor will “destroy” the city.
He played a soundbite of De Blasio talking about income inequality, with co-host Pat Gray calling it “such drivel.” Beck suggested De Blasio might be popular because, like Rudy Giuliani, he’s seen as a “strong man, and that’s what New Yorkers like.”
And as opposed to De Blasio saying the defining argument of the modern age is inequality, Beck shot back that the real question is: “Is this the era of the individual or not? is the next hundred years, or possibly five hundred years, where people are more free?”
As opposed to progressivism, which Beck said is always asking the question of “how can we control man.”
