Brooklyn GOP Socially Distances Itself from the Brooklyn Young Republican Club
On August 6, 2020, the Kings County Republican County Committee decided to break ties with the Brooklyn Young Republican Club. Joel Acevedo, the President of the Young Republican Club, claimed in a post that the King County decided to do so “with no notice, no charges and no opportunity to partake in any deliberations.”
In a tweet that he posted on that same day, he claimed that this was the second time the Brooklyn Young Republican Club had its ties severed from the King County GOP. He tweeted, “For the second time in 9 years–a record-breaking distinction,@KingsCountyGOP tonight has once again decided to sever ties with the Brooklyn Young Republican Club with no notice, no charges and no opportunity to partake in any deliberations. #NYC #Brooklyn”

In the same post, Acevedo asserted that the “leadership of the Brooklyn GOP arbitrarily refused any and all communications with our organization months ago at the start of an election cycle, we see that they are sticking to their typical ‘winning’ electoral strategies.”
Additionally, Acevedo claimed that the Brooklyn GOP was demanding “100% fealty to MAGA and Trump in order to be a good Republican and embracing racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric that appeals to exactly 24% of New Yorkers and 0% of the United States Constitution, we’re not exactly sorry to see them go.”
He concluded by saying that his organization will “continue to pursue actions that make the Republican Party internally and externally the best vehicle for advancing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all. And we’ll let Brooklyn Republican Party leadership do what it does best: lose elections while eating its own.”
Acevedo was put on blast by New York Young Republican Club President Gavin Wax for his milquetoast response to the radical leftist mobs led by Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Such politically correct behavior should not be rewarded by the GOP. In all honesty, ostracizing such individuals and their affiliates is the way to go moving forward for a GOP that is serious about maintaining a national populist image.
