I am old enough to remember one of the most successful marketing commercials promoting New York -- 'I Love New York'.
There isn't another like it.
No matter where you go.
And nobody can compare it.
It's win, place and show.
New York is special.
New York is diff'rent' cause there's no place else on earth quite like New York and that’s why I Love New York.
It was so popular that in 1980 it became the official state song, along with an iconic logo of a red heart in place of the 'o' in love.
1980 New York Vs 2023 New York
New Yorkers of the late 1970s weren’t too optimistic about New York’s future. The United State's economic stagnation in the 1970s hit New York City particularly hard, amplified by a large movement of middle-class residents to the suburbs, which drained the city of tax revenue.
High crime was everywhere, and peaked with the Son of Sam killings.
The 1980s greatly tested New York City's strength: residents fled the city in record numbers, government mismanagement caused near bankruptcy of the city, and the introduction of crack-cocaine unleashed an unprecedented wave of drug addiction and violence.
Sounds awfully familiar to headlines and pundits today.
Brooklyn born Hakeem Jeffries was a teenager. Jeffries graduated from Midwood High School in 1988. He probably doesn’t remember those times. He probably doesn’t remember that Republican President Ronald Reagan and NYC Republican Mayor Rudolph Giuliani saved the country and New York. He wouldn’t think back to the times when a republican like Reagan had a friendship with Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill. Privately, O'Neill and Reagan were always on cordial terms, or, as Reagan wrote in his memoirs, they were friends "after 6 p.m."
The Hakeem Difference And The Downfall For Democrats
Hakeem Jeffries is a product of woke education and opinions harmful to democracy, freedom and constitutional protections. He was the Assemblyman from Brooklyn’s 57th district. The area includes the neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill as well as parts of Bedford Stuyvesant, Prospect Heights and Crown Heights.
Failing schools, high crimes, big minority populations that aren’t happy live there. Streets aren’t safe. Residents average median household income is low ($25,500 in 2015), and 42 percent rely on SNAP benefits.
They recently voted for their assembly representative a Haitian nurse with socialist views. Assemblywoman elect Phara Souffrant Forrest called her win, “It is a win for nurses without protective equipment, for Black and Brown people targeted by police violence and chronic disinvestment, for immigrants deprived of their democratic rights, for tenants who can’t make rent, and for the thousands of unemployed people struggling to survive. Our win is a rejection of politics as usual. This win shows that our time is now.” She ran on an initiative concept of ending rent.
That’s Jeffries New York. That is Jeffries America.
Being Touted As Historic
Hakeem Jeffries might be black, good looking and like Chuck Schumer from Brooklyn that is where the rave reviews should end for now.
Among the facts being ignored by the progressive left, mainstream media and legal middle class voters from all backgrounds, including minorities across the United States:
As Americans prepare for a hard 2023, let’s be clear, Hakeem Jeffries will not be able to humm “I Love NY. It’s leadership like his that makes it the number one state to evacuate. Where will Americans exile to?
