Many people associate Fascism with the Right. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Although in some countries Fascists have been on the political Right, that is exception and not the rule. Historically fascists tend be Centrists/Moderates. Mussolini’s Fascist movement in Italy called itself the 3rd Way. They were neither Capitalists, like on the Right, or Marxists, like on the left. NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg is the ideological successor of Il Duce. He claims to be a Centrist and believes government can force people to do how he pleases.
Bloomberg’s latest Fascist crusade is breast feedings. He wants to do away with baby formula and force babies to breast feed.
The nanny state is going after moms.
Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed.
Starting Sept. 3, the city will keep tabs on the number of bottles that participating hospitals stock and use — the most restrictive pro-breast-milk program in the nation.Under the city Health Department’s voluntary Latch On NYC initiative, 27 of the city’s 40 hospitals have also agreed to give up swag bags sporting formula-company logos, toss out formula-branded tchotchkes like lanyards and mugs, and document a medical reason for every bottle that a newborn receives.
