New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called for the “nationalization of crucial factories and industries,” a major benchmark of socialism, to combat U.S. the coronavirus outbreak.
In an interview on MSNBC’s AM Joy recently, de Blasio argued that a government-run healthcare industry could produce the medical supplies needed to mitigate the COVID-19 outbreak.
“This is a war-like situation. We’re in a wartime scenario with a Mar-a-Lago attitude being used by the federal government, right? It’s so laid back, and I don’t understand it,” de Blasio said.
“And by the way, testing, how about ventilators? Where is the federal government making sure that our hospitals have the ventilators we’re going to need? Where is the federal government when it comes to surgical masks, getting them distributed where they need?”
“This is a case for a nationalization,” de Blasio continued, “Literally a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need. Hand sanitizer, people are going crazy, I don’t blame them, trying to get hand sanitizer.”
