“New revelations about de Blasio’s political past should prompt more New Yorkers to scrutinize his record before going to the polls this November,” writes Dovid Margolin, a freelancer who writes frequent features for the Hamodia magazine, such as community spotlights or issues. “A communist revolution had taken place in the heart of the Americas, and Bill de Blasio was there to help. Yet even today Bill de Blasio describes his experience with the Sandinistas as nothing short of inspiring.”
“Imagine if an unrepentant Nazi Party sympathizer would be running for mayor of New York. A product of the ideology that destroyed 25 million people within reach of City Hall would be unthinkable,” Margolin writes, after describing Mr. de Blasio’s ties with the anti-Semitic Sandinistas’ regime. “Yet Bill de Blasio, a Marxist who has never repudiated those beliefs, will very likely be this city’s next mayor.”
“So the question to ask yourself as you enter the ballot box this November is this: Is Bill de Blasio the type of man who has the judgment and character necessary to be the mayor of New York? Does a city full of refugees of communism from all over the world really need a mayor who not only sympathized with but actively promoted the totalitarian regimes under which they suffered? The answer is obviously no,” he concluded.
Reached for a comment, Hamodia’s editor Yochonon Donn told YWN, “Margolin is an outside writer whose opinion does not necessarily reflect Hamodia’s views.”
