How successful are the Democrat policies in New York? They’re such losers that the only two groups they pander to, blacks and illegal migrants, are fleeing. No one has even called out the Democrats for their disgusting attempt to put these two entirely different groups in the same basket. New York’s ruling class has done everything possible to prevent blacks from seeking meritorious positions in life, thus degrading them to the status of recipients, the same way in which they view illegals.
New York politicians, from Governor Hochul, to Mayor Adams, to City Council, to Manhattan DA have centered their platform around fighting phantom “white supremacy”, which according to COMPStat, is statistically non-existent. But how these people talk, it’s like the Big Apple is the KKK’s headquarters.
Governor Hochul said “many communities in New York, particularly here in New York City, are experiencing the day to day instances of harassment and abuse…where we have white supremacists, right wing extremists, and domestic terrorists trying to stoke fear in the hearts of New Yorkers.” Mayor Adams said he needed to hire his brother to serve as a deputy NYPD commissioner, “which is extremely important…at a time when we see an increase in white supremacy and hate crimes.” The 51 member body of City Council, majority Democrat, introduce dangerous Bills, like Into 632 (which disallows landlords from doing background checks on murderers and rapists) under the guise that landlords must be exclusively white Kleagles and murders and rapists are exclusively black. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg said his office will not seek “carceral sentence[s]” because of “racial disparities.” Their words, their platform.
Yet, New York’s ruling class are driving away blacks and illegal migrants. How? By spewing poisonous propaganda which is bringing out latent prejudices in people that never would have expressed prejudice and creating an entirely new class of prejudiced people following a herd mentality. We have seen this before in an industrialized country, notably 90 years ago.
Regarding the blacks, it’s simple. They’re leaving for the same reasons as whites and Asians. As Democrats push reverse racism, blacks know this isn’t why their lives under one party Democrat rule are disintegrating. Like everyone else, they want to feel safe, have jobs, and send their kids to functioning schools.
Incessant and wrong talk about “white supremacy” is hurting blacks rather than helping. It provides cover for the Democrats to eschew the real issues that help lift constituents up. Under the guise of imaginary “systemic racism”, a false “social justice” was implemented and has done away with safety, scholastic achievement, and economic freedom.
“Climate justice”, tackling things like racist infrastructure and racist electricity, has been a financial albatross that has led to people freezing to death, not being able to turn on lights, and struggling to cook chicken - when they can find and afford this now luxury item.
Aiding and abetting illegals has led to strife. Adams says “basic services will be cut” as he remains laser focused on non citizens sucking at the tit of taxpayers. Hospitals, schools, NYPD, and social services are overwhelmed trying to deal with the manufactured crisis to “reimagine” his sanctuary New York City.
“Social justice” means more crime - just underreported. There are fewer arrests and fewer prosecutions. Repeat offenders continue to terrorize communities already on the abyss. Based on what has been reported, the Big Apple has started 2023 off with a bang. Serious assaults are up over 18%, rapes are up nearly 16%, robberies up 9.4% and burglaries are up 5.5% year to date, according to NYPD statistics.
Injecting poisonous CRT (critical race theory) into schools has done nothing to improve reading or writing; New York is in the bottom half of the country for reading and writing though taxpayers spend the highest in the nation, $28,000 dollars per public school child annually. New York City public schools are majority minority; 41% Hispanic/Latino, 24.7% black, 16.1% Asian or Asian/Pacific Islander, 14.6% White,, 1.2% American Indian or Alaska Native, and 0.5% Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander. Black people have had it; they’re leaving New York City schools.
As per the NY Times, “The city's black population has declined by nearly 200,000 people in the past two decades. Schools have lost children in all demographic groups, but the loss of Black children has been much steeper as families have left. The factors propelling families…out of the city are myriad, including concerns about school quality…and tight urban living conditions. But many…point to one main cause: the ever-increasing cost of raising a family in New York.” .
There is no mention of racism being a factor in the exodus.
As to why the illegal migrants are fleeing New York city; crime. You hear that? The criminals can’t be swayed by taxpayer funded Medicaid, $400 dollar a night Manhattan luxury hotels, legal aid, cell phones, food, and school; they reject crime and are protesting with their feet. A whistleblower reported how the illegal migrants showed their gratitude. While housed at the Row hotel, they were “being drunk, drinking all day, smoking marijuana [and] consuming drugs" as well as committing acts of "domestic violence… and having sex in the stairs."
But what’s good for the goose isn’t good for the gander. As per the NY Post, “Disgruntled migrants fed up with the Big Apple’s crime and grime are taking off to the Great White North — on bus rides paid for by New York taxpayers. Mayor Eric Adams’ administration pays various companies that run programs for migrants that include “re-ticketing” so they can travel to other cities, a City Hall source said.” One illegal put it like this, “I wanted to live in New York because I thought it would be a better future for my daughters. But as the days went by, I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful, and many people on drugs.” The oxymoronic idea of New York as a city of sanctuary has been turned upside down by what can only be described as an incompetent outreach for votes. The people that the Democrats pay off to vote for them are leaving. However, the Democrats refuse to take the blinders off and the cotton out of their ears. Their one issue is the only issue no one is buying. The outmigration and plummeting school enrollment numbers across all races are proof.
