New York Young Republican Club Backs Jewish Protesters Who are Standing Up to New York’s Tough Lockdown Policies

Published

A controversial crack down by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio against Hasidic Jews was met with sharp criticism by Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club.

Earlier this week, many Hasidic Jews took to the streets to protest Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new restrictions on schools, businesses, and places of worship in nine neighborhoods with rising Wuhan virus cases.

The New York Young Republican Club criticized the de Blasio government’s “radical and inconsistent enforcement actions” against Jewish worshippers practicing their faith during, Sukkot, an important Jewish holiday.

In a statement it released on October 8, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club asserted that “The rights of all Americans to assemble, whether in religious celebration or protest, cannot and should not be infringed and even in a global pandemic can be observed with the proper safeguards and health awareness.”

The Republican organization called attention to how New York City leadership has messed up political priorities by “allowing extremism from left to continue unabated and un-policed, from blocking streets and bridges to looting and rioting, while not hesitating to condemn and disturb the peaceful exercise of Jews’ religious rites.”

In addition, it argued that “arbitrary application of regulations and safeguards under the guise of public health and safety reeks of selective priority and in a time when so many have died, while some turn to government and progressivism as a religion for comfort, others turn to God and de Blasio should not stand in the way.”

BLP reached out to Gavin Wax, the President of the New York Republican Club, for his thoughts on this entire situation:

De Blasio and Cuomo continue to show their anti-Semitism with their latest crackdown and rounding up of orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. The worst zip codes for Covid in NYC are actually not in Jewish areas but that doesn’t matter. The Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish Community votes Trump and votes Republican and thus they must be punished. That is the mindset of these leftwing tyrants. They already suffered the most after bail reform with a slew of Jewish murders and anti-semitic attacks, now they have their Synagogues shut down and businesses closed, completely unconstitutional and un-American.

Politicians have shown their true colors during the Wuhan virus pandemic. For many of these opportunist types, a generalized crisis like this is the perfect scenario in which they can destroy freedoms such as the right to assembly.

More grassroots resistance will be needed in order for politicians to reverse course.

Here’s Where Hispanics Will Play a Decisive Role in the 2020 Elections

Published

In 2020, Hispanics will leave their mark in presidential elections.

During the present election cycle, Hispanics will be the country’s largest ethnic minority in a U.S. presidential contest. 32 million Hispanics will be expected to cast their ballots in the 2020 presidential election. They will make up 13.3 percent of all eligible voters. That said, the number of Hispanic eligible voters is significantly lower than the 60 million Hispanics who live in the country.

Nationally speaking, 62 percent of Hispanic registered voters identify with or lean towards the Democratic Party  On the other hand, 34 percent hold similar inclinations with the Republican Party.

Pew Research Center highlighted five key facts about the geographic distribution of the Latino vote for the 2020 presidential election:

Here are five facts about the geography of Latino voters for the upcoming 2020 presidential election:

1 Two-in-three Latino eligible voters live in just five states. California alone holds roughly a quarter of the nation’s Latino electorate, with 7.9 million Latino eligible voters. Texas is second with 5.6 million, followed by Florida (3.1 million), New York (2.0 million) and Arizona (1.2 million).

2 Latinos make up the highest share of eligible voters in New Mexico (43%). The other top states are California (30%), Texas (30%), Arizona (24%) and Florida (20%).

3 Texas’ 20th Congressional District is home to 359,000 Latino eligible voters, the highest number of any congressional district in the country. Texas’ 16th, 34th and 23rd districts, and Florida’s 26th District, round out the top five, each with at least 321,000 Latino eligible voters.

4 California’s 40th District has the nation’s highest share (80%) of Latinos among its eligible voter population. Texas is home to the next four highest districts, where at least seven-in-ten eligible voters in each are Latino: the 34th District (79%), 16th District (77%), 15th District (73%) and the 28th District (71%).

In 26 congressional districts, Latinos represent at least half of all eligible voters. Most are in California (11 districts) and Texas (eight districts). Florida (25th, 26th and 27th districts), Arizona (3rd and 7th districts), New York (15th District) and Illinois (4th District) also are home to congressional districts that meet this threshold.

5 Only about half of the nation’s 60 million Hispanics are eligible to vote – the smallest share of any racial or ethnic group. While the Hispanic population has grown rapidly in recent decades, many are not eligible voters. More than other racial or ethnic groups, many Hispanics are young (18.6 million are under 18 years old) or non-citizen adults (11.3 million, more than half of whom are unauthorized immigrants).

Hispanics will be one of the key constituents that will play a huge role in American politics from here on out. Despite all the media hype about them being a reliable bloc vote because of the GOP’s  supposedly tough stances on immigration restriction, many Hispanics do in fact support tighter controls on immigration. Additionally, in certain crucial swing states such as Florida, Hispanics are beginning to head on over to the Republican side.

Trump’s national populism, not Hispandering, is key in making sure that Democrats don’t turn the Hispanic vote into a dominate segment of its coalition. All things considered, Hispanics will play a pivotal role in leading Donald Trump  to victory on November 3.
