Here's One Critic De Blasio Should Appreciate Having

They say you can know the mark of a man by the enemies he has - here's one enemy that Mayor de Blasio should be happy to have:

It’s a tale of the 1% city for Bernie Madoff.

The convicted swindler, cooling his heels in a North Carolina federal prison camp, is no fan of the progressive financial policies and vision touted by Mayor de Blasio.

“I’m not a great fan of redistribution of wealth,” the 75-year-old Wall Street villain said during a long, ranging interview with Politico.


The former Democrat, who now identifies as an independent, says he voted for President Obama in 2008, but would not have in 2012 because the president policies have become “too socialist.”

Dunno what Madoff is talking about - banksters are doing as well or better under the "Socialist" Obama as they did under Bush the Capitalist.

As for Madoff not being a fan of redistribution, that's not true.

He surely liked to redistribute other people's money to himself through fraud and criminal activity.

In that way, I suspect he isn't all that different from many of the "capitalists" on Wall Street these days.


  1. Guess Madoff hasn't been out and about enough to follow Obama's neo-liberal policies. Called the destruction of the middle class, rising of the kleptocracy rather than any viable and functioning form of socialism.

    1. Yes, I guess Madoff doesn't get out much lately. And perhaps they only get Fox News in jail?
