The Atlantic is shilling for enemies of America, all of them, every stripe, every ideology. Last century's, this century's. This is the new left and this is the old left. The Atlantic even defends Grover Norquist, the Muslim Brotherhood's chief operative in the Republican party.
And just like Norquist, who dismisses everyone who points out the evidence of his ties to Islamic supremacists as a "bigot," The Atlantic doesn't even bother to address the question of whether or not what I say about de Blasio in my ad is true. (It is; see here -- scroll.) For The Atlantic, as for all the leftist enemedia, it's enough to point and laugh. New Yorkers won't be laughing after de Blasio becomes mayor.
The NY Post is reporting today that de Blasio visited communist Russia while in college.

Pamela Geller calls New York mayor-to-be Bill de Blasio a terrorist. In a series of ads set to run in subway stations around the city, long-time Islamophobe Geller links the likely next mayor of New York to to separate groups of terrorists. The New York Daily News spotted the ad, which is at right. This isn't new rhetoric for Geller, who made her name with virulent opposition to the so-called "Ground Zero mosque" in 2010. In 2012, she paid to run anti-Islam ads in the transit system.
You'll notice that Geller, a traditionalist, mixes two eras of critique in her attack on de Blasio. He is a Communist ("Red Bill") and a terrorist-sympathizer ("partners with vicious terror-aligned foes") and a Communist terrorist-sympathizer ("supported bloody Communist terrorists").That's actually pretty appropriate for the moment. After all, the Republicans are only following the recent trend in pejoratives. Below, a look at the use of three terms — communist, socialist, and terrorist — in books since 1900. "Terrorist" is having a moment. And the GOP, always following trends, have embraced the idea.
