The New Yorker sent a powerful message to the far-left progressives in this week's primary. "Sorry, we're not like you."
On Tuesday, with nine of the 11 challengers backed by the Working Families Party and Congressman Alexandria Ocasiocortes. Four Challengers Backed by Democratic Socialists of America-Candidates NYCgavea more modest surrender. For example, former AOC staff member Jonathan Soto has fallen to incumbent Bronx congressman Michael Benedetto. He pointed out that his rivals were vulnerable to crime. This problem comes to the mind of New Yorkers.
The Soto Benedetto race highlights the ignorance of progressives. Indeed, when I was with Orange-Man-Bad at the White House four years ago, the AOC managed to take a seat in Congress, and left-handers might have thought they had an opening. .. Later, their anti-policeman, socialist agenda, was greatly boosted by the Black Lives Matter protest and the Democratic Defund the Police movement.
Still, most sane people (Republicans or Democrats, blacks or whites) didn't really want police funding. Polls have shown overwhelming support for maintaining police presence at that level, even if it does not increase.
When crime begins to increase (mainly miserable criminal justice) Thank you for the reforms ”at City Hall and Albany), many New Yorkers have begun to demand crackdowns. During that time, the agenda of progressive flat-out socialism never rose to mainstream levels. Moreover, after 2020, Donald Trump's Boogeyman is no longer as enthusiastic as it once was.
The situation became clearer with the victory of Erik Adams after focusing on crime in last year's mayoral elections. In a sense, Tuesday's race represents a proxy warbetween him and the AOC, whose camp is stateand city government (mainstream Democrats or societies). Dominate the principle).
Good news if Tuesday is your guide. I'm not a socialist. Their left-handed agenda is a decent school for children, getting in and out of work on the safe subway, normal democracy that wants to take care of mentally ill and drug abusers rather than abandon them. On public roads that are simply not in harmony with New Yorker's concerns.
"Lefts understand where the majority of Democratic voters are "We need to do that," warns political consultant Jake Dilemani. "They need to meet them where they are talking about the problem. The power of the incumbent certainly plays a powerful role, but in the empty seats without the incumbent, the mainstream Democrats have won."
New Yorkers can only pray that the party is over when it comes to rooney AOC-style progressives. Permanently.
