Democrat-run cities are a disaster.
Violent crime is spiking as a consequence of progressive policies.
And you won’t believe what one city just deemed a public health crisis.
New York City is regressing to 1970s levels of decay.
Crime is on the rise and the far-left Mayor and state legislature are not only doing nothing about it, they’re making it worse.
Even Governor Kathy Hochul – who replaced the scandal-ridden Andrew Cuomo – said that New Yorkers were not getting the COVID vaccine because they were afraid of traveling due to subway crime.
With major problems like this plaguing the city, New York officials deemed it necessary to declare racism a public health crisis.
The Daily Wire reports:
This week, the Board of Health for New York City declared racism a public health crisis, committed to looking into whatever “structural racism” may exist in the NYC health system, and recommended that the NYC Health Department “perform an anti-racism” review. The board’s resolution, which passed on Monday, alleged that “there is a long history of structural racism impacting services and care across all institutions within our society.” Aside from taking aim at the city’s health system for perpetuating alleged inequity, the resolution also called out other aspects of society, like law enforcement, housing, and education for contributing to “avoidable and unjust health outcomes.”
This is the neo-Marxist ideology of Critical Race Theory in practice.
Radicals weren’t able to incite an uprising of the working class because the average American has a significantly higher standard of living than someone in the rest of the world.
So the radicals cynically replaced class with race in order to bring about the socialist revolution.
Self-fashioned antiracist scholar Ibram X. Kendi argued that the only way to make up for past discrimination is present and future discrimination.
Kendi argued for a federal antiracism bureau that would supersede all other forms of government in order to force equity, i.e. equality of outcome.
Radical jurisdictions like New York City are trying to make it happen with insane edicts like this.
It harkens back to the summer riots of 2020 when the Democrat Media Complex told all Americans they must stay home because of COVID, but they must also take to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd.
None of this makes any sense, but this is what the Democrat Party stands for.
They have let the extremists drive the bus, and they’re steering it off a cliff.
