The Democrat Party is on the ropes.
Left-wing politicians are scrambling for any message that will resonate with voters.
And one Democrat Mayor uttered five shocking words about Black Lives Matter.
The lies that the Democrats told over the past few years are finally blowing up in their faces.
One media bombshell after another turned out to be a dud.
Democrats are reversing themselves on their insane “defund the police” rhetoric, pretending as if they never said it.
Now New York City Mayor Eric Adams is desperately moving to the right on law and order issues because even leftists are sick and tired of the crime.
After a series of shootings that claimed several black lives in the city, Adams called out Black Lives Matter, Inc. by name.
Adams said, “Where are all those who stated ‘Black Lives Matter?’ Do an analysis of who was killed or shot last night. I was up all night speaking to my commanders in the Bronx, in Brooklyn. The victims were black . . . The lives of these black children that are dying every night matter. We can’t be hypocrites.”
Adams is late to the party.
Conservatives and some honest liberals have been banging this drum for years, but they were beaten back with ridiculous arguments from radical leftists who would rather monomaniacally focus on the rare high-profile police shooting.
Adams is only now taking a shot at BLM because the organization has been exposed.
Untold millions, if not billions, went to BLM, and nobody knows where the money went.
Left-wing politicians and journalists are finally calling out BLM, which means it’s cheap and easy for Adams to do so.
But when BLM was still popular, it was considered “racist” to oppose the group, even when its leaders were openly calling for street violence and radical revolution.
Adams, a former police officer, ran as if he would be the sensible moderate who would steer New York City back to the middle after two terms of communist Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Instead, Adams has continued some of de Blasio’s radical policies while only paying lip service to making the streets safer.
But Adams’ criticism of BLM could perhaps be a signal that the Democrats are attempting to distance themselves from a tarnished brand.
If Adams is serious, he would work to end many of the pro-crime policies that put repeat offenders back on the streets.
