The core is intolerance,” Mr. de Blasio said. “When we address intolerance, when we undermine intolerance in the process we undermine extremism and violence. He argued that ‘some of the most power impediments to violence are some of the most human and grassroots dynamics within our reach, the creation of an atmosphere and reality of equality, respect and inclusion. Our mission is to address extremism in all its forms,’ he added.”

You watch, soon the government will consider the following expressions extremist: Islamophobia, anything anti-LBGT, anti-immigrant, anti-government, anti-vaccine, anti-atheist, homo-phobic and the like.
WHY THIS IS BAD FOR AMERICANS: It limits free speech, a first amendment violation.
