Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 13, 2018

Julia Salazar, a democratic socialist, beat 16-year state Sen. Martin Dilan for the 18th District Democratic nomination. BROOKLYN, N.Y. ― Julia Salazar, a 27-year-old democratic socialist, was plagued by negative news coverage in the final weeks of her insurgent campaign against incumbent New York state Sen. Martin Dilan for making misleading statements about her background. But voters in North Brooklyn on Thursday found her preferable to Dilan's close ties to the real estate lobby, as Salazar triumphed in the Democratic primary for the New York state Senate's 18th district seat.

"Julia Salazar's victory is a testament to how much her policy platform resonated with the people of North Brooklyn, some of the fastest gentrifying communities in New York City," said Susan Kang, a leader of the New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, which endorsed Salazar, who is an active dues-paying member of the organization. "Her bold platform of fighting for tenants' rights, immigrants and transit riders matters more than this expensive smear campaign against her, and that shows how important the issues really are."

I wonder how many of these goofy ideas she will back away from, if any.

Yeah, she pals around construction workers and pretends to be a working class hero, while dressed like a Manhattan socialite. If nothing else, she's an airhead.

Abolish prison- DSA as an organization has not voted one way or another on this though they have taken a stand against PRIVATE PRISONS

Abolish ICE what a great idea it should be

Abolish cash bail, another good idea

Abolish borders as far as I know DSA as an organization has not taken a stand on this.

Just because a few in DSA in New York might have said something along these lines it does not mean DSA itself is for all of this

The thread is about the New York DSA candidates. The national DSA is free to repudiate the views of the NY DSA.

The private prison system is an absolutely insidious evil. I hope the Dems (and rational Republicans) put an end to it, once and for all.

Here in California Gov. Brown signed the cashless bail bill. Of course, alarmists point to isolated cases where similar (though not identical) bail constraints have led to problems, but on balance, seems like a good way to even the inequity of the justice system with regard to the income of criminal defendants.
