Democrat governor just insulted children in her state with one jaw-dropping statement

Joe Biden has put his foot in his mouth too many times to count.

He’s not the only prominent Democrat to do so.

And a Democrat governor just insulted children in her state with one jaw-dropping statement.

Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) stumbled her way into power in Albany, and her lack of political talent is showing.

While serving as Lieutenant Governor, Hochul took over for scandal-ridden Andrew Cuomo after he was forced to step down.

Then Hochul narrowly won her gubernatorial race against Republican Lee Zeldin in a state where Democrats have a huge voter registration advantage.

Cringeworthy “computer” comments

Hochul has made several mistakes in her short tenure, and she did it again when she implied that young black kids in New York cannot even comprehend the word “computer.”

During an event at the Milken Institute, Hochul said, “Young black kids growing up in the Bronx who don’t even know what the word ‘computer’ is—they don’t know. They don’t know these things. And I wanted the world opened up to all of them because when you have their diverse voices innovating solutions through technology, then you’re really addressing society’s broader challenges.”

 

The Democrats constantly fall victim to the soft bigotry of low expectations.

The idea that young black kids in the Bronx, or anywhere, have never heard of a computer is preposterous.

For starters, with smartphones, many kids have computers in their own pockets.

Biden stepping into it

But this is how elite white liberals think about minorities.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden said, “We should challenge students in these schools. . .We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

Poor equals nonwhite in the minds of Hochul and Biden and other Democrat elites.

Hochul got slammed for her comments.

She later said, “I misspoke and I regret it.”

Hochul’s walk-back occurred after Assemblywoman Amanda Septimo, a Bronx Democrat, called the Governor’s remarks “harmful, deeply misinformed, and genuinely appalling.”

Hochul continued, “Of course Black children in the Bronx know what computers are — the problem is that they too often lack access to the technology needed to get on track to high-paying jobs in emerging industries like AI.”

Students do not lack access to technology.

The problem is teachers’ unions have a stranglehold on public education.

The outdated Prussian model of education could be ditched tomorrow in favor of a more modernized system, but the unions hate any disruption to their monopoly.

Hochul added, “That’s why I’ve been focused on increasing economic opportunity since Day One of my Administration, and will continue that fight to ensure every New Yorker has a shot at a good-paying job.”

So Hochul tried to turn her gaffe into a stump speech.

Hopefully voters remember Hochul’s words come November because they represent the thinking of the Democrat Party.
