NYC Mayoral Race Heats Up

Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the LifeZette. The author of this post is David Kamioner.

    We are so fond of providing new information on the medieval municipal disasters that spread across California, their incompetent Ken doll governor, and the never-ending riots that typify Oregon and Washington state, that we forget that here on the East coast there is another shining example of Marxist government gone comically haywire. Start spreading the news...

    New York, the leftist lab rat experimental zone, is having a mayoral election in 2021. They are sadly parting with Bill Deblasio, who for eight years mismanaged the city through one PC crisis to another while his family got rich. A true New York City mayor. Now another Marxist is looking at the slot. Oh lucky New York.

    FNC: "A Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City who has called for slashing the NYPD's budget in half, bragged Tuesday that nearly a third of her campaign's donors are unemployed. 'We are building a people powered movement that is making history,' Dianne Morales, a former nonprofit CEO, tweeted Monday night. 'Our most frequent donation is just $10, the average donation is $52 and 30% of our donors are UNEMPLOYED. We don't have to be beholden to special interests or big money. We don't have to go back to normal...We know defunding the police doesn't mean giving up on public safety; in fact, it means the opposite,' her campaign wrote in an email seeking donations Tuesday night. 'Removing funding from an overly militarized, abusive agency founded on White supremacy and upheld by the status quo — and then investing in things like mental healthcare, housing, education, green spaces and public transit — makes us more safe, not less.' She has proposed a separate "Community First Responders Department" to respond to 911 calls about homelessness, mental health, substance abuse, emotional distress and other behavioral health issues — rather than the NYPD."

    Morales seems oblivious to the fact that when a city is undergoing a crime wave and has a recent history of civil disorder, that more police may be the logical move, not less. Also, she is proud of her support from the unemployed. Why they are unemployed in the first place, generally because of the application of policies she favors, seems to have escaped her notice. And the white supremacy line? So we are totally looking at a wack job here.

    There are other candidates in the race. One, Eric Adams, a former member of the NYPD and the current Brooklyn Borough president, may be marginally better than his opponents. But when you come out of the Democrat Party establishment in New York City your relative worth is akin to a choice between Fidel Castro and his brother Raul.

    Whoever is chosen, it is likely not to matter. After Marxist government and the ravages of the virus, NYC is a basket case. It is not going to recover any time soon, if at all.
