Another Democrat Ditches His Party to Join the GOP

The Left is losing party members like it’s their fault. Perhaps it’s their woke policies that are driving Democrats to make the switch to the Right side.

A Democrat councilmember from New York, Ari Kagan, announced earlier this week that he is abandoning his party for the GOP.

According to the New York Post, Kagan blamed Democrats for its soft-on-crime policies that gave too much leniency to criminals, adding that the Left has gone too far to the left.

Kagan dropped the news during a press conference, saying “the Democratic Party in New York was moving to [the] left at such a speed I couldn’t keep up.”

On the same day, he tweeted that NYC criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizens and that “it’s not me leaving the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party very quickly started to leave me.”

Kagan also said that his positions on crime and education no longer align with the Democrat Party’s narrative, adding that he believes they are doing everything in their power to make everybody in New York City feel less safe.

In October of this year, crime in the city skyrocketed by 5.9 percent compared to 2021.

That same month, NYPD officers made over 4,000 arrests, a 16.5 percent increase compared to last year.

The NYPD reported that there were 102,741 major felonies including murder, rape, and robbery this year, up from the 95,593 felonies reported during the pandemic year of 2020.

However, Gov. Kathy Hochul has insisted her team is working on the ongoing issue but New Yorkers have yet to see any resolutions.

    Well let’s see, we have the W.H. health official that wants doctors to push puberty blockers on our children, then we have the other whack job, supposedly in charge of our nuclear waste that stole the suitcase from the airport and is on administrative leave. We have a homeland security chief that just denies that anything is going on at the border. Our transportation secretary, have we heard anything from him? nope, crickets. This sums up our Democratic party and I didn’t even cover Biden or the cackling hen of a V.P. that we have. Neither one of them have been to the border and Biden was just in Arizona to congratulate Hobbs on her fixed election but had “more important things going on” to go to the border. I won’t even get into the midterm election scam that went on, just like the 2020 election. They mirrored one another and the Dems got what they wanted. But the elections were not rigged.

    I’m glad this guy has seen the stupidity of the crime and education issues. But what of other Conservative policies? Is he going to vote with us on abortion? Taxes? censorship? second amendment? Let’s see how this goes.

  • Brenda Brown says:

    If we cannot get the Democrats to understand what they are doing we are doomed! We need more Dems to transfer to our side or our country is doomed!
