Break out the beignets and the bubbly, y’all! The city of New Orleans, Louisiana, has elected Democrat LaToya Cantrell its first female mayor.
Mainstream media is hailing Cantrell’s win as a breakthrough for identity politics. Meanwhile, the crime-ridden, impoverished city of New Orleans has been run by a Democratic mayor since 1872. Coincidence?
Cantrell, a former New Orleans city council member, beat fellow female, Desiree Charbonnet, to win.
“Almost 300 years, my friends! And New Orleans, we’re still making history!” Cantrell told supporters in her victory speech (see video).
Cantrell’s milestone as the first female mayor of New Orleans follows other recent “breakthroughs” for identity politics.
During the past few weeks, the city of Seattle elected its first lesbian mayor, while St. Paul, Minnesota, elected its first black mayor. And the city of Helena, Montana, just elected a Liberian refugee as its mayor in another first.
While candidates touting their gender or sexual orientation as a qualification has become trendy, it’s questionable whether having a mayor who’s a woman or a lesbian or a refugee will actually help the citizens of the cities that elected them.
LaToya Cantrell has a tough job ahead. New Orleans is a poverty-stricken, dangerous city whose homicide rates per capita are higher than Chicago — the murder capital of the United States.
Nine of the 10 most dangerous cities in the United States were run by Democrats as of 2015, according to LawStreet. The 10th city had an Independent mayor.
Similarly, a 2017 report shows that states run by Republicans — such as Utah and Indiana — have the strongest economies. In contrast, the worst-performing states are run by Democrats.
The bottom 10 states (including dead-last New York) are run by Democrats.
Interestingly, all 10 bottom-feeders voted for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. Enough said.
