On July 24, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club criticized Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for removing a statue of Christopher Columbus from Grant Park.
In its statement, the New York Young Republicans Club gave a brief overview of the contributions Italian Americans made in building Chicago’s infrastructure:
Italian immigrants helped to connect Chicago to the Eastern Seaboard when they came to the United States to work as disrespected, low-wage railroad track layers. The descendants of these men number over half a million in the Chicago area, and they form an integral part of the city’s distinctive culture.
The image of Christopher Columbus has served as a beacon of unity for Italian Americans who fought hard to assimilate into American culture, which NYYRC noted:
Italians who immigrated to the United States in the early twentieth century suffered mass indignities. The recognition of Christopher Columbus as a symbol of Italian presence in the Americas served as a rallying point for them to assert their belonging as part of the American community.
The conservative organization labeled Lightfoot’s removal of the statue “as a slap in the face to every Italian-American.”
Lori Lightfoot’s removal of this historic statue of Christopher Columbus in the dead of night is a slap in the face to every Italian-American. The New York Young Republican Club calls on Chicagoans of Italian heritage to push for Lori Lightfoot’s removal from office. She has proven in recent months that she lacks both the interest and the skill to keep Chicago safe, and she proved last night that she lacks all respect for Italian-Americans.
Lightfoot has been one of the most controversial mayors during the recent wave of riots. Instead of actually leading, she instead blames Trump for the unrest and proposes gun control as a way to somehow fix the situation.
Groups like the NYYRC exist to hold irresponsible politicians like Lightfoot accountable and set a new standard for conservatism in the populist age of Trump.
VIDEO: America First PAC Defends Marjorie Greene and Rips Her Swamp Opponent a New One
Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is going on offense against her Republican rival John Cowan.
Greene is currently running in Georgia’s 14th congressional district and will be facing off against Cowan during a runoff election on August 11.
Drain the DC Swamp PAC, a conservative PAC that promotes America First candidates, recently posted several messages on FB in favor of Greene.
On August 4, 2020, the PAC posted “We fully endorse Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress for Congress and call on all patriots in Northwest Georgia to turn out for her and VOTE on August 11th. She is pro-Trump and conservative. Our nation is under attack by godless socialists who hate America and we need a fighter in Congress who will stop them. These same socialists are trying to vote in the primary to stop Marjorie Greene. We must not let that happen! Vote Marjorie Greene to save America from the radical left!”
A few days later, the PAC page attacked Cowan by declaring that “John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP.”
John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP. He won’t stand up to the socialists. He is OK with renaming our great Georgia military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Stewart. Fort Benning trains the US Army Infantry, Airborne, and Rangers. Fort Stewart is the home of the prestigious 3rd Infantry Division.These two bases trained and deployed America’s combat soldiers all throughout the world and they are the same bases who trained the fighting men who won two world wars.Vote AGAINST sellout John Cowan.
The PAC called on voters in Georgia’s 14th district to vote against Cowan “or he will sell out to the socialists.”
Drain the DC Swamp PAC is an organization that promotes conservative policies such as “protecting life to protecting our borders, we support those who fight for traditional values, our Constitution, and our Country.”
The PAC also supports “President Trump’s vision of a government of, by, and for the people. We believe the people have the right to know what their government is doing, and support leaders who aren’t afraid to hold it accountable.”
This is one race America First champions cannot ignore.
