Bill de Blasio Dismisses Lhota Calling Him A Socialist As “Right-Wing” Tactic

debBill de Blasio is not ready to be named a socialist.

Asked to respond to Republican mayoral rival Joe Lhota’s “Democratic socialist” hit, Mr. de Blasio wasted no time firing back, accusing Mr. Lhota of running a typical right-wing smear campaign.

“I am not surprised that my opponents will throw labels and call names. That’s a Republican tactic. That’s a right-wing tactic. We’ve all seen it plenty of times,” Mr. de Blasio, told reporters at a media availability in Queens.

“I’m very proud to be a progressive,” he added. “I’m very proud to be a Democrat.”

  1. Well he is cross running on the “Workers Family Party” (In NY you can cross run on multiple party tickets). and WFP officially calls itself socialist. So cross running on the socialist party ticket makes you a socialist, sorry DeBlasio

  2. what a dummy! Progressive is just a fancy word for socialist. It’s almost a hundred years old. So he’s proud to be a socialist. This is not a right-wing comment by Lhota, it’s the truth!
