  • NYT Video: Liberal Hypocrisy is Fueling American Inequality



    Interesting video about how States under full democrat control, still don't actually put forward the democrat vision that they claim to have.

  • #2
    No surprise there. When old Joe was claiming that Georgia's new voting laws (which made it easier to vote) was "Jim Crow 2.0" (which even the generally fawning WaPo was forced to give him four Pinocchios for that whopper) it was revealed that the region with the strictest, most restrictive voting laws are in the deep, deep blue states of the northeast.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      I'm shocked.
      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        I have asked the same question here on Tweb about California. The Liberals have owned California for decades so why isn't it a liberal paradise yet? California is also one of the richest states in the country, with Hollywood and Silicon Valley, so they have plenty of tax income. So, why don't they have universal healthcare? Universal basic income? Why instead do they have streets crowded with homeless camps? Poop in the street? or poverty at all? If you want to know what the country would look like if the democrats had full power and control to do whatever they wanted, just look at California and imagine that all across the country.

          And why are they streaming to Texas in droves if California is such a Mecca?

            Yup, and this is coming from the New York Times, so whag or Juvenal or Starlight can't dismiss this as simply a conservative playing a blame game. The guy in the video, you can tell, is even liberal.

                  Not to defend a liberal state, but the homeless problem is unsolvable. A lot of homeless don't want off the streets because they like it there. There are enough charities, shelters, start-up programs, etc., available (particularly here in LA) to help lift someone off the streets if they wanted it. But that's the catch-22. Because California has more charities and homeless programs, they have more homeless, and the worst dregs of society from all around the country (heck the world really) are going to be attracted to that and flock there. So on one hand, charities and programs are good, but on the other, they actually create the problem they hope to solve.

                    The discrepancy is because progressives are a party minority. The Democratic majority generally wants to maintain the status quo, not make sweeping healthcare reforms.

                      So, the policy paper is a lie?

                        How dare you suggest that politicians would make promises they don't intend to keep to garner support.

                          Glad to know the democratic partys policy positions are a lie. No need to vote for them then.

                            This just corroborates something I posted a couple months ago:

                            This past Thursday The Blaze reported on what a pair of New York Times reporters, video journalist Johnny Harris and editorial board writer Binyamin Appelbaum, discovered after they set out to investigate "why famously liberal states -- such as New York, California, and Washington -- struggle to advance the progressive policies despite little to no Republican opposition." What they found shocked them. It isn't opposition from conservatives but rather that "liberal hypocrisy" that is responsible for "fueling American inequality" and that in reality things are "much worse in blue states than they are in red.”

                            Source: NY Times journalists explore what happens when Democrats have all the power, find out 'blue states are the problem'


                            A pair of New York Times journalists who recently set out to explore what happens when Democrats control all the levels of power in state and local governments across the country were shocked to discover that "blue states" — not red ones — "are the problem."

                            "What do Democrats actually do when they have all the power?" Times video journalist Johnny Harris asked at the outset of an opinion video posted by the paper last week.

                            Harris teamed up with Times editorial board writer Binyamin Appelbaum to examine why famously liberal states — such as New York, California, and Washington — struggle to advance the progressive policies despite little to no Republican opposition.

                            They focused on three core initiatives of the Democratic Party platform: affordable housing, economic equality, and educational opportunity. And in the end, they discovered that "liberal hypocrisy," not Republican opposition, "is fueling American inequality" and that things are actually much worse in blue states than they are in red.

                            "In key respects, many blue states are actually doing worse than red states," the journalists noted in a written report accompanying the video. "It is in the blue states where affordable housing is often hardest to find, there are some of the most acute disparities in education funding and economic inequality is increasing most quickly."

                            "Blue states are the problem," Applebaum, who covers economics and business for the Times, exclaimed.

                            "Blue states are where the housing crisis is located. Blue states are where the disparities in education funding are the most dramatic. Blue states are the places where tens of thousands of homeless people are living on the streets. Blue states are the places where economic inequality is increasing most quickly in this country. This is not a problem of not doing well enough; it is a situation where blue states are the problem," he added.

                            At one point, Harris noted that "affluent liberals tend to be really good at showing up at the marches and talking about how they love equality, [and] at putting signs in their lawns saying, 'All are welcome here.'"

                            "But by their actions," he continued, "What they are actually saying is, 'Yes, we believe in these ideals, just not in my backyard.'"

                            The New York Times may just be waking up to this notion, but the American people have been keen to it for some time — and have been showing their dissatisfaction by leaving blue states and moving to red ones at record levels.

                            Imagine my shock that the folks who repeatedly claim that blacks aren't very intelligent and require gracious white liberals to show them how to do things (but who only come around a couple times in the months before an election) are the biggest problem.







                            In fact I'm more than just shocked. I'm stunned as well

                              Does the policy paper actually claim that the liberals intend to produce the conditions approved in the paper?
