What happened to New York after Democrat Bill de Blasio elected, Joe Biden is a De Blasio clone

“It is going to blow”

Fred Reed has finally reached the same conclusion that I did more than two decades ago:

Here we come to the joys of diversity. Cultures can be too different to live together. Whites and blacks have almost no common ground, little common history. Whites trace their history back to well before the ancient Greeks, through Rome, the Renaissance, Europe. Blacks had no part in this and, it seems, have no interest in it. Aristotle? Thomas Jefferson? Einstein? Madame Butterfly? Galois? FORTRAN? These might all have come from some remote galactic civilization.

There is no agreement, anywhere, at any level, over anything. Hardcore conservatives insist that the coronavirus is no worse than the common flu as hospitals report overwhelmed ICUs and epidemiologists cry the alarm. Blue states favor lockdown while red states open up. Libertarians peddle cockamamie conspiracy theories. Mask laws are ignored or fought over. China, South Korea, Singapore shut down, control the virus, go back to work. Not America. Nobody is in charge.

Nothing holds the country together. There is no social glue, no dominant culture. We have no shared history, language, dialect, ethnicity, or religion. Diversity turns the country into rubble.

Diversity? It is the end of America. The country once was overwhelmingly white, European, Anglophone, and Christian. It worked, as approximate monocultures usually do. No longer. The North hates—the word is not too strong—the South and seeks to erase its culture and uniqueness. The Bible Belt is intensely Christian while the northern elites, heavily Jewish, seek to suppress Christianity. The coastal elites hold the central deplorables in contempt. Blacks hate whites. Feminists hate men.

Hispanics float in indeterminate limbo, not having jumped either way. Amerindians maintain a demanding apartness. Jews, neither Christian nor, in the minds of many, neither quite European or quite American, control the media and finance, generating perennial hostility. Bulk lot Somalis, having nothing in common with Minnesota, are in Minnesota. On and on.

It is going to blow.

The more one studies history, the more one understands that societies which violate certain basic principles do not put themselves at risk of collapse, they assure their own collapse. Neither “diversity” nor “equality” are new concepts, to the contrary, they are very old ones that are intrinsically tied to past societal failures.

The only thing that is new and different about the current situation in the United States is its scale. And that is a very sobering thought indeed. Because the only way out is through.

Democrats, or progressives or the woke, whatever they call themselves, promise voters Utopia if they get  elected to office.  

Let’s set aside that there is such a thing as Utopia on earth!

Instead let’s look at a “real world” example of what happened to a city after a Democrat was elected mayor.  Case in point: New York.

Background

After a succession of three Democrat mayors, New York was on the brink of bankruptcy in the early 70s.  New York’s last Democrat mayor before Bill de Blasio was elected was David N. Dinkins.  Bill de Blasio served on his staff. Remember hat!     

During the one year term under Dinkins, New York reached its lowest point.  2,600 hundred murders a year under Democrat governance.  As a result, even though Democrats have a 6:1 advantage,  Republican Rudy Giuliani was elected mayor of New York in the mid 90s.  What Giuliani accomplished in cleaning up New York has been well documented.  But, what also can be said is that he cleaned up New York after the poor work done by three Democrats.

One of the first things Giuliani did was to get control and re-established quality of life laws.  The squeegee man were gone. He believed that a safe city needed to be clean first and foremost as building block for what came later.  

So New Yorkers weren’t allowed to urinate, defecate, drink alcohol in the streets, and play loud music at all hours of the night.  The drug pushers, prostitutes, porn shops were removed from Times Square!

In time New York became a safer, cleaner, place to live and visit.  Giuliani served two terms.  But, New Yorkers remembering how bad it got under the last Democrat voted for a Republican, Mike Bloomberg for three terms.  Bloomberg built on the work Giuliani started and made New York a even safer.  For 20 years New York enjoyed the benefits of Republican governance and prospered.       

Enter Democrat Bill de Blasio in 2014 who promised to be the most “progressive mayor” New York ever had.  Unfortunately, one of the first things Bill de Blaio did as mayor was to wipe clean all quality of life laws.  As a result, New Yorkers were allowed to piss, crap, drink alcohol in the streets, and play loud music at all of the night.  De Blaio removed the foundation that helped New York become the safest big city in the world.  Once quality of life laws are gone everything else crumbled. 

In 7 years De Blasio managed to destroy the combined 20 years New York enjoyed under Giuliani-Bloomberg.  This is not a made up story.  It’s the real world.  New York’s crime rate has tripled.  Murders are up, sexual assault has doubled, car theft is up, graffiti is back up on the walls, and people are fleeing New York promising never to come back.      

Nevertheless, this Is not an isolated story because the same can be said about how Chicago is being run into the ground under Democrat Lori Lightfoot.  Jacob Frey has destroyed Minneapolis.  Ted Wheeler is a disgrace in Portland and what do they all have in common?  They’re Democrats and what they promise has nothing to do with how they actually govern. 

Voters have a simple choice to make because Joe Biden is from the same strip.  He’s given up control to the same progressive policies that destroyed New York.    Why go there?
