Two New York Times reporters got together to study the disparity in inequity in pay, and uneven education opportunities. These are issues that Democrats always run on and polls say the majority trust Democrats more.
The two then set out to see how people fared in areas where Democrats dominate the elected offices. I’m sure what they found out was a complete shock to them.
Times video journalist Johnny Harris teamed up with Times editorial board writer Binyamin Appelbaum to determine why long-time progressive states have such a hard time achieving the goals they claim they want to fulfill.
The states they focused on were California, New York, and Washington. What they found should be eye-opening and important news, but don’t expect to see any of the liberal media cover it outside of the New York Times.
They focused on three core initiatives of the Democratic Party platform: affordable housing, economic equality, and educational opportunity. What they found was that those three states were not successful because of Republican opposition but because of liberal hypocrisy.
The journalists noted in a written report accompanying the video:
“In key respects, many blue states are actually doing worse than red states. It is in the blue states where affordable housing is often hardest to find, there are some of the most acute disparities in education funding and economic inequality is increasing most quickly.”
“Blue states are the problem.”
“Blue states are where the housing crisis is located. Blue states are where the disparities in education funding are the most dramatic. Blue states are the places where tens of thousands of homeless people are living on the streets. Blue states are the places where economic inequality is increasing most quickly in this country. This is not a problem of not doing well enough; it is a situation where blue states are the problem.”
Harris went on to explain that liberals are good for showing up to march and spout the liberal lines, but the problem is when they go home, they continue to support those goals, they just don’t want it in their backyard.
