Eric Adams is running against those people. We are too.
It is a new progressive era in those places where the same class of people – the DILEs or PMCs or gentry liberals or woke scold progressives or urban, educated, middle class White people who entertain stupid cultural ideas – simultaneously support draconian new restrictions on online speech or civil liberties due to COVID while systematically dismantling the criminal justice system and allowing homeless camps, drug addiction and violent crime to explode. They are the people who are deeply offended by working class people who say the wrong words, but who don’t care about all the graffiti and broken windows and shit and feces and heroin needles and homeless people in tents that are filling up their cities.
Note: We have our doubts about the ability of Eric Adams to turn New York City around, but can it get any worse than Bill de Blasio? At least he is naming the problem.
