A Plot Against the Russian By Selfish Incumbents
NYT Starts A New Read Scare Again
NYT Starts A New Read Scare Again
NYT Does Not Understand the Brooklyn Russians Voters Are Moving to the GOP Because They Were Screw by the Democrats, Not Because of their communist background. The NYT leaves out the fact that for 10 years the Russians were registering Democratic and electing Democrats. In return for their loyalty they got redistricted into oblivion. The NYT forgets about the loyalty the Russians have show to the Democrat party and says the Russian immigrants are far more likely to vote Republican than most New Yorkers, and have already helped tip the balance for the GOP in several recent races. Republicans running for office this year can expect considerable support from the city’s Russian enclaves. It is interesting how NYT writer Joseph Berger left out all the important point NYt writer Michael Powell made in his article about the Russian in March. Kingmaker of Little Russia - The New York Times. Powell in the article reported from a Russian leader that "“They are existentially angry,” he said of the Brighton Russians. “They found that the Republicans and Democrats don’t have friends; they have interests." Nowhere in Powell's article did it say the Russian have an affinity for the GOP because of Communism.
The NYT Ignored A History Russian Deliving the Votes to the Dems, Elect Dems and Never Got A Chance From the Dems to Elect Represents From Their Community to Office
Gregory Davidzon, owner of the Russian radio station WSNR in Brooklyn, N.Y has become the guy to talk to in the Russian Community. His radio stations constant ads and interviews with Russian team Greenfield was responsible for pulling out over 2000 Russian voters for the Greenfield, his margin of victory. He was also a key play in the election of the first Russian Assemblyman Alex Brook-Krasney and helped deliver the vote to the mayor in 2009. Congressman Turner credits him for his upset victory and also delivered the Russian vote to John Liu against David Yassky. * Key Russian Leader Endorses Turner After Positive Poll Results (True News)* This Russian Immigrant Can Make the 9th Congressional District Race Close (True News)
Kruger, Fidler, Cymbrowitz, Recchia and Lopez Never Welcomed the Russians into the Party as Equal Partners
Many of those democrats the Russians help elected through the years worked worked against during redistricting. It started 10 years ago when Council Dominic Recchia looking to get reelected in Brighton Beach cut a third of the Russians out of his district. He won in 2001 because of a 5 way spit of the Jewish and Russian vote. This year the Russian hoped to pick up a state senate district only to find their community divided up into 4 different state senate district and 4 Assembly district. The 4 assembly seats could have been redistricted to elect 3 Russian there is currently one. The GOP understands the meaning the population changes in Southern Brooklyn and they why they are running Russian candidates all over like David Strobin who shocked the political world by taking it to long time incumbent Fidler (With yesterday judges ruling it looks like Strobin will win). What the NYT does not understand is the Democrats led by Kruger, Fidler, Cymbrowitz, Recchia and Brooklyn Boss Vito Lopez by not accepting them into the fold have given the GOP the opportunity to pick up seats by running Russians. * A Russian Tragedy (True News)* Albany Builds A New Berlin Wall Around Brighton Beach Russian Jews (True News) * To Save the Brooklyn Democratic Party Assemblyman Cymbrowitz Must Go (True News) * The Six Stooges That Make Up the Redistricting Committee (True News) * WSJ Discover the Russian Machine But Ignore Their Vote Being Diluted in Redistricting (True News) * Congressman Weiner A Strong Symbol That Keep Southern Brooklyn Democratic Party Together (True News) * Turner Victory Starts Civil War Within New York's Democratic Party (True News) * How the Political Machines Stay Alive: Rules Not Votes - What the Fidler Race Exposed (NYT)

Only a Russian Candidate Can Slow the Red Tide in Southern (True News) Brooklyn The Congressman Turner victor was the wake-up call. The Fidler results is the panic button. Southern Brooklyn is turning GOP red. The Democrats only chance to try slow this tide is to pick new candidates that mirror the district. That has already been done in the news Boro Park State Senate District where DSCC Chairman Mike Gianaris helped lobby former Councilman Simcha Felder to run for the seat.

Today's New York Times Reports
Among New York’s Russians, an Affinity for the G.O.P.(NYT) New Yorkers vote overwhelmingly for Democratic politicians, but immigrants from the former Soviet Union are a notable exception, perhaps because of the legacy of Communism. The NYT implies with a picture of a Russian fur shop that they have they have an affinity to the GOP. The problem is in Russian even the poor were fur to keep out the cold. Only in American is connected to the rich. Wrong culture gray lady. The NYT should be asking why Albany created an extra Asian congressional, state senate and assembly district in spite of the fact that the Asian registration rate is not as strong as the Russians who got shut out of new districts.
