No, he isn’t perfect. Far from it. But Eric Adams is (A) not an anti-cop, anti-anti-crime loon and (B) proof, yet again, that working-class people of color don’t like de-policing and other nutty boutique priorities of the gentry left.— Sohrab Ahmari (@SohrabAhmari) July 7, 2021
It’s so funny that an alliance of the New York Post, ethnic whites, and outer-borough blacks was the winning formula for the NYC mayoral race— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) July 6, 2021
I grew up poor in Brooklyn & Queens. I wore a bulletproof vest to keep my neighbors safe. I served my community as a State Senator & Brooklyn Borough President. And I'm honored to be the Democratic nominee to be the Mayor of the city I've always called home.— Eric Adams (@ericadamsfornyc) July 7, 2021
Thank you, New York! pic.twitter.com/YU2DBIFU5D
I've said it before and I'll say it again: this wasn't simply a campaign, it was a five-borough movement of working-class New Yorkers coming together for a safer, stronger, healthier City. And our strength and message is why we won. pic.twitter.com/O55fTDVm6D— Eric Adams (@ericadamsfornyc) July 7, 2021
DLWCs triumph over DILEs in New York City.
“While there are still some very small amounts of votes to be counted, the results are clear: an historic, diverse, five-borough coalition led by working class New Yorkers has led us to victory in the Democratic primary for Mayor of New York City,” Adams said in a statement.
Adams, whose central campaign promise was to reduce crime and boost public safety, held a roughly 9-point lead on election night but has seen the race draw closer as the ranked choice voting calculation redistributes voters’ preferences.
Adams is the heavy favorite to win the November general election and would be the city’s second Black mayor. …”
Eric Adams ran against all of those rich White people and their stupid ideas. He has declared victory over the professional class. Now they will have to kiss his black ass.
