Hizzonor is making a desperate effort to appeal to the socialist extremists that are currently in the process of hijacking the Democratic party.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio once saw himself as a major player for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination but has been humiliated by tiny audiences at events and has little chance at cracking the lineup of clowns and whackos who will be pummeling each other for the prize of being pulverized by President Trump next November.
The only real way to stand out in a field of communists, cranks, bigots, con artists and weirdos is to outdo them with stupid radical ideas and Mayor Bill is more than up to the task.
So in order to appeal to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sycophants along with the socialist Green New Deal, de Blasio has called for the elimination of glass and steel skyscrapers, buildings that his city is chock full of.
Could NYC's Mayor De Blasio look any more foolish?

Via The New York Post “De Blasio: Glass skyscrapers ‘have no place on our Earth’”:
Mayor Bill de Blasio is preparing to take New York City back to the stone age — by making “glass and steel” skyscrapers extinct.
Still flirting with a run for president, the mayor held an Earth Day press conference on Monday to announce his plan to fight climate change with a “Green New Deal” — including a bill designed to eliminate new glass-fronted towers from the city skyline.
“We are going to introduce legislation to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers that have contributed so much to global warming,” de Blasio said.
“They have no place in our city or our Earth anymore.”
Despite Hizzoner’s insistence on repeatedly using the word “ban,” he later admitted his legislation would actually just tighten the city’s energy code to make it prohibitively expensive to develop glassy high-rises.
“It’s literally going to be a much higher standard and the only way that kind of design would even be acceptable is with a whole host of other changes were made to compensate because those buildings were inherently very inefficient,” he said.
It would seem that such a statement would put him in agreement with terrorist organization al Qaeda who knew a thing or two about doing away with such buildings and nobody can accuse a dyed in the wool communist like Hizzonor of not having anti-American allies and ideas.
Not that the buildings actually have to come down under de Blasio’s reign but he will leave the city in smoking ruins due to his far-left policies.
