Long before a little-known virus struck the country, Americans were fleeing blue cities. High taxes, rampant crime, and strict rules triggered a mass exodus from the East and West Coasts.
That only got worse in 2020, when Democrat leaders shut down their communities.
It’s gotten so bad, major blue states have lost seats in the House. But one governor doesn’t seem to get it. In fact, she doesn’t know why people are leaving New York. Because of this! From Breitbart:
During a portion of an interview aired on Tuesday’s edition of Bloomberg’s “Balance of Power,” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) stated that while “the horrific crimes that we’re seeing” keep her up at night and are “frightening” people, “New York City is still the safest big city in America. Look at Chicago, look at San Francisco, look at Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Washington. People leaving New York, I’m not sure where they’re going to go because we are the safest big city in America.”
Is Kathy Hochul secretly an SNL character? How can she claim that New York is the safest big city in America? She even admitted that she is horrified by the crippling spike in crime the city experienced under Democrat mayors.
Hochul herself is making sure New York isn’t a safe place to live. She supports ending bail, defunding police, and preventing Americans from concealed carrying. Yet she thinks she’s in the clear, because New York might be safer than cesspools like Chicago and Los Angeles!
Way to raise the bar, Kathy! She seemed to overlook big cities in the Midwest and South–where, you know, mayors and police actually enforce the law.
Hochul exposes her own ignorance and arrogance in this statement. In her mind, nobody would love glamorous New York to live in a pigsty like Florida! But guess what, Kathy? Florida has plenty of big cities. And they are all much safer than New York.
Maybe New York was safer… when Rudy Giuliani was mayor. He literally took down the Mafia. But three liberal mayors since him ensured New York is back to being the Rotten Apple. And that’s not even getting into the extremely high cost of living, many taxes, filth-covered streets, rude people, endless homeless, and bitter winters.
Hmm… I’m surprised there’s anyone left in NYC!
- New York Gov. Hochul said she didn’t know why people are fleeing New York.
- She claimed that NYC is the “safest big city in America.”
- This comes as New York suffers rising crime, poverty, and taxes.
