Looking Under the Hood of Liberal Progressivism
Let’s look ‘under the hood’, so to speak, at a well known progressive liberal and learn his background, how he became what he is today. Discover the Networks provides these “ten facts about New York City’s Communist Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was elected in 2013 with a whopping 72% of the vote. The leftist mayor is accused of fostering an environment that led to the tragic execution-style racial assassinations of two NYPD officers on Saturday.”
- Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr., on May 8, 1961. He first changed his name to the hyphenated Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm, adding his mother’s maiden name. In 2002, he dropped the “Warren” and the “Wilhelm,” and changed his name for a second time to what it is currently, Bill de Blasio.
- Bill de Blasio was the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign in 2000.
- Bill de Blasio was a fervent supporter of the Marxist Sandinista government in Nicaragua in the 1980′s, a government that was backed by the Communist Soviet Union and Cuba.
- At the height of Cold War tension, while still a student at New York University, de Blasio toured the Communist Soviet Union in 1983.
- His first job was in 1984 with the NYC Department of Juvenile Justice.
- Bill de Blasio received a master’s degree in International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, the same school attended by Barack Obama.
- Bill de Blasio ran Democrat New York Congressman Charlie Rangel’s re-election campaign in 1994.
- In 1994, Bill de Blasio married a lesbian activist, Chirlane McCray. The newlyweds honeymooned in Fidel Castro’s Communist Cuba.
- In 2009, de Blasio’s election campaign to be NYC’s third “Public Advocate” was supported by the pro-Communism, Working Families Party.
- Both of de Blasio’s parents were communists, leading historian Ron Radosh to describe him as a “bona fide red diaper baby.” [as was Barack Obama]
So, what kind of man is Bill? Apparently special enough to convert an openly lesbian woman to switch from girlfriends to a boyfriend. Learn about Chirlane McCray from the New York Times: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/09/de-blasios-wife-gives-candid-interview/?_r=0 and from Essence magazine: http://www.essence.com/2013/05/09/politicians-wife-chirlane-mccray
In summary, radical leftist politician, son of communist parents marries openly lesbian homosexual activist and the two “honeymoon” in communist Cuba. Well, that says a lot about the man whose inflammatory rhetoric contributed to the deaths of New York police officers. It also says a lot about the weakness of the collective character of New York City voters of whom 72% voted this man into office.
What is it that best describes a liberal progressive? One observation: they think God needs help. In fact, they think God is too old and senile to manage either mankind or terrestrial resources God provided mankind.
Progressive in office imagines he or she knows better what’s best for our citizens than they themselves. It’s a ‘politburo’ mindset that is at once hypocritical and narcissistic.

You and I can’t win them over with sound reasoning. Facts of history are of no consequence to them. Reshaping facts of history to fit their liberal progressive Marxist theories positions them with an insurmountable argument.
So, there is no way to change their minds? No, there is a way. In a word it’s ‘epiphany’, the manifestation of a supernatural or divine reality, any moment of great or sudden revelation.
What’s the Cure?
Jesus ministered as Rabbi for three years, key disciples in tow. Despite seeing all the miracles and hearing his profound wisdom, most of the crowd that followed him persisted in ignorance of who he truly was. Let’s pick up the story in Matthew 16:13-17, as recorded in the New Living Testament.
“When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is? “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”
Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being.”
Jesus’ closest disciples came to understand the true nature and character of their Rabbi by divine revelation, an epiphany. Can this work to turn the hearts and minds of liberal progressives? Absolutely. This is how Libertarian Fox News host John John Stossel was transformed from liberal progressive to libertarian conservative.
What’s a workable strategy? Avoid name-calling. [Calling them liberal progressives is acceptable, because that’s what they call themselves.] Choose to love them unconditionally. Continually confront them with truth. I don’t say it will be easy, but this is how it works. Along the way of repeat encounters with truth, liberal progressives come to a point in their spiritual development that God can supernaturally reveal truth to them. That which comes to you by revelation never departs. Revelation leaves you with an unshakeable faith and resolute standards.
Pray for another “great awakening”, for the outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit on America. Choose to love those who hate you, to forgive those who wrong you and, above all, to renew your mind daily by reading the Bible, God’s Word to mankind.
