<quoted text>The DNA of the democratic party is inbred with Jim Crow hate, envy, ignorance and FDR racism.
DemocRATS DNA usually blocks common sense in the name of political correctness. The proof of this can be seen in the upcoming NY Mayoral race where they are anti-police, busy preaching “social justice” with class war soundbites and worried about transgender bathrooms instead of the economy.
Here’s one:'John Liu:“New York City needs to be one city,” he said.“Where everyone gets a fair wage and a fair shot. One city. Where we take care of the needy and take on the greedy. With your help, I’ll be a mayor not of the 1 percent — but of the 100%.”
As slogans go, Liu’s have a near-poetic cadence. They are catchy and clear — and radical as hell.
Unfortunately for New York, he is just one of many candidates lurching to the far left. Like leftovers from Occupy Wall Street rabble, the candidates spell big trouble for Gotham.
The most surprising thing about the race to succeed Michael Bloomberg is the scramble among Democrats to plant their flags on liberalism’s wackiest wings. As Liu demonstrates, it’s a toxic brew of class warfare and socialist impulses unfazed by facts and good sense.
On the surface, the radical turn is surprising because the primary was expected to be a battle for the support of government unions. But with competition stiff there, the candidates are trying to distinguish themselves by moving further and further left on other topics.
There is also another dimension to the leftward lurch — TRICKLE-DOWN RADICALISM.
President Obama won his second term with a borrow, tax-and-spend, class-warfare approach. He got 81% of the city vote, against only 18% for Mitt Romney, reportedly the most lopsided margin in more than 100 years.
Similarly, Gov. Cuomo, who took office in 2011 promising to reduce the state tax and regulatory burden, also has veered left as he gears up for re-election next year and for a presidential run in 2016. Instead of tax cuts, he now touts New York as the nation’s most progressive state, which marks a switch of about 180 degrees.
With proof that radicalism sells, it was inevitable that city Dems would feel emboldened to test how far left is too far. As of now, there doesn’t seem to be a limit.
So, while they still kowtow to labor, the race is mostly about who has the most aggressive “SOCIAL JUSTICE” agenda. It includes “COME-AND-GET-IT” POLICIES ON FOOD STAMPS AND SHELTER, and free food for all in schools. Glib talk of making New York “affordable” is code for greater subsidies for some & tax hikes for others.
Most strikingly, Christine Quinn, the front-runner, proposed sweeping powers for a new inspector general in the Police Department. Indeed, ATTACKS ON THE NYPD ARE PART OF THE DEMOCRATIC CATECHISM. Given the city’s remarkable record of crime prevention and a reduction in incarceration rates, it is shocking how cops have become punching bags. Consider the antics of an aide to Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.
The Post caught Kicy Motley, the volunteer director of de Blasio’s campaign, tweeting “F--k. The. Police” and calling America a “racist, imperialist country.” The only cop she praised was Chris Dorner, a murderous ex-LAPD officer killed in a shootout. Her punishment? A scolding by the candidate and a ban on using social media. Tsk, tsk.
IT DOESN’T MATTER THAT THE MURDER RATE IN NYC IS GOING DOWN, unlike other Democrat laden cities.
...the city might actually elect a mayor who doesn’t understand or appreciate the necessity to fight crime.
Wake up, New York. It’s time to panic.'
