(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is issuing a dire warning to the Democratic Party that they might be headed toward the same fate that his 2020 presidential bid suffered during the midterm elections in November of this year.
“The political earthquake that just occurred in San Francisco should be a dire warning to the national Democratic Party, because the same fault line stretches across the country and the tremors are only increasing,” Bloomberg went on to write in a piece for The Washington Post on Tuesday.
According to WND, “The business tycoon made sure to clarify that he is still a Democrat, and he does not want to see a red wave in the 2022 midterms.”
“I continue to believe that a healthy and vibrant Democratic Party remains essential to beating back the Republican Party’s dangerous turn toward authoritarianism and its tolerance for election subversion,” Bloomberg said in the piece.
“But I am deeply concerned that, absent an immediate course correction, the party is headed for a wipeout in November, up and down the ballot,” he continued.
Over the course of 2021, during off-year elections, the GOP scored some big victories in both Virginia and New Jersey, which was headlined by Glenn Youngkin’s win to nab the governor’s seat in Virginia.
Bloomberg wrote in his editorial that these victories were due to parents’ concerns about public schools. He then noted that he believes the Democratic Party is not doing a good job of addressing this concern.
“Three months after Republicans scored major election upsets in Virginia and New Jersey, largely because of the frustration parents felt with Democratic officials who catered to teachers’ unions and culture warriors at the expense of children, voters in San Francisco recalled three school board members by margins of nearly three to one,” Bloomberg stated.
“Coming from America’s most liberal city, those results should translate into a 7 to 8 on the Richter scale, because the three main factors that drove the recall are not unique to the Bay Area,” the billionaire wrote.
“Bloomberg wrote that there were three main reasons that a far-left city like San Francisco saw voters recall school board members who were friendly with Democrats. The first was public schools’ failure to re-open even after it was clear that COVID-19 was no longer a viable threat in classrooms,” WND’s report stated.
“As private schools opened, public schools remained closed,” Bloomberg said in the piece. “Tragically, that failure will do lasting damage to many students and their career prospects, especially those from low-income communities.”
Bloomberg then wrote about how San Francisco public schools made things significantly worse by insisting on “political correctness.” He believed they should have been focusing on getting schools open, but were too worried about renaming them.
“Instead of reopening schools, they spent their time renaming them, stripping off the names of historic figures like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln before a public outcry forced them to reverse course,” the failed presidential candidate wrote.
“Meanwhile, parents struggled to keep their heads above water as they tried to manage having their children at home,” he added.
Bloomberg also wrote that the school board members who got booted made a huge mistake by voting against merit-based admission to an elite school in the name of “equity.”
“According to KABC-TV, San Francisco’s Board of Education voted to end merit-based admissions at Lowell High School in February 2021,” the report said.
The board members stated that they were worried about “racist incidents” happening at the school and that they felt the racial makeup of the student body was contributing to the issue.
“Fifty percent of the students at Lowell were Asian as of February 2021, and 18 percent were white, KABC reported. Only 2 percent of its students were black. According to a March 2021 report in the San Francisco news site SFist, the student population of the school district is 6 percent black,” the WND report said.
Bloomberg said that changing over to a lottery-based system for choosing students will likely not solve the issue of alleged “racism” happening at the school.
“Make no mistake: Lowering standards in the name of fairness only exacerbates injustice and inequality,” Bloomberg stated in the piece.
“Closing achievement gaps must be done by creating more high-quality schools, not undermining existing ones. Voters understand this, and they will keep casting their ballots for candidates who do, too,” the report said.
Bloomberg concluded his editorial by stating that the Democratic Party must see the recalls that happened in San Francisco as a wake-up call ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. He said that if they ignore it, the party will end up feeling the consequences for their actions at the ballot box.
“Swing voters will decide the 2022 midterm elections, and right now, polls show they are swinging away from Democrats,” Bloomberg said. “The earthquake that shook San Francisco needs to shake up our party, before voters do it themselves in November.”
Let’s hope that Bloomberg’s prediction comes true so we can put a stop to Biden’s radicalized agenda for our country and do some damage control until we can straighten everything out.
