"I knew that the systems of the status quo, and the people dedicated to preserving them, were entrenched to the point of absurdity. But I have to admit even I did not expect the Chair of the New York State Democratic Party to compare the Democratic nominee for Mayor of Buffalo, a Black woman who has spent years fighting for her city, to a neo-Nazi Grand Wizard of the KKK. Do the people that Jay Jacobs is trying to shield with this bizarre, offensive statement agree with it? Does the Governor, who he endorsed before a primary even began?
"Jay Jacobs and other Democratic leaders have preached party unity above all else, until it was inconvenient for them. They are standing with a candidate backed by Trump Republicans, rather than with the democratic values they claim to uphold. This is the toxicity that has long plagued New York’s politics and prevented New York’s progress – and it cannot be ignored."
