From the same man who brought “Meatless Monday” to New York City schoolchildren, Mayor Bill de Blasio seeks to expand the choking death grip of socialism to Big Apple residents with another authoritarian idea.
Hizzoner’s 2020 presidential run has imploded like the farce that it always was and now that he has inhaled the gaseous emissions from other socialist candidates, he has plenty of time to focus on additional ways to inflict misery on his own constituents.
Now de Blasio is mulling mandating bicycle riders to be licensed by his crooked big city government and to face serious consequences if they fail to comply with his coming decree.
Bill de Blasio Is Considering Requiring NYC Cyclists To Have Licenses And Registrations https://t.co/rfWN0qIlsR

According to the New York Daily News, “Mayor de Blasio says bicycle licenses should be considered, promises to sic cops on cyclists”:
Mayor de Blasio on Wednesday said he was considering requiring bike riders to be licensed, and even pitched the idea of forcing Citi Bike renters to wear helmets.
“We have to think about what’s going to be safe for people first, but also what’s going to work,” the mayor said of the helmet requirement. “Is it something we could actually enforce effectively? Would it discourage people from riding bikes? I care first and foremost about safety.”
De Blasio added that he thinks the idea to force cyclists to have licenses and registration is a “valid discussion.”
Whether or not he moves forward with the license requirement, the mayor said he plans to crack down on cyclists who break traffic laws, despite little evidence suggesting that bikes are a menace to public safety.
“We are going to keep expanding enforcement on bicycles as well, because we still have a lot of bike riders who have to remember they have to follow the rules,” said de Blasio.
Like most Democrat-controlled big cities, New York has taken a turn for the worst under de Blasio’s reign with massive increases in taxes to fund socialist programs, a dramatic rise in crime and a stated preference for illegal immigrants over American citizens.
This is why sane people are fleeing the Big Apple in droves thanks to de Blasio.
Scores of people are leaving the New York City area behind every dayhttps://t.co/wejuSv3npG

Via Bloomberg, “More People Are Leaving NYC Daily Than Any Other U.S. City”:
Scores of people are leaving the New York City area behind every day.
New York leads all U.S. metro areas as the largest net loser with 277 people moving every day — more than double the exodus of 132 just one year ago. Los Angeles and Chicago were next with triple-digit daily losses of 201 and 161 residents, respectively.
This is according to 2018 Census data on migration flows to the 100 largest U.S. metropolitan areas compiled by Bloomberg News.
Mayor de Blasio’s reign of terror underscores the socialism of the radicalized Democratic party which has gone from the party of FDR and JFK to the party of Vladimir Lenin and Al Sharpton in only a few short years.
They want to strip Americans of their freedom to make their own decisions and put power into the hands of an authoritarian government that the socialists will control.
• They want to disarm you!
• They want to tell you what to eat!
• They want to take away your right to free speech!
• They want to control what you think!
• In short, they want a dictatorship with them in charge.
• And they will stop at nothing to get it
The one thing that can stop this dangerous insanity is if the rats start eating each other before they get to us which is already starting to happen so there is a reason for optimism
