(PatrioticPost.com)- Last Week Page Six deputy editor and author Paula Froelich took to the editorial page of her paper the New York Post to write an op-ed explaining why, after years of voting Democrat, she is official done with the Democrat Party.
While a number of factors weighed into her decision, the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back was Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hypocritical stunt at the Met Gala.
Ocasio-Cortez attended the posh, elite gathering of the rich and famous while wearing a gown with “TAX THE RICH” emblazoned on the back.
Froelich bemoaned that hypocrisy as glaring as that would never happen back in the days of Bronx-born Democrat Congresswoman Bella Abzug.
Asking what happened to the party of Abzug and other notable Democrats of the past like John Glenn and Howard Metzenbaum, Froelich writes that the days when politicians put their constituents ahead of making money or political advancement appear to be over.
Froelich also decried the rank hypocrisy of a party that, on the one hand, promotes #MeToo while giving pride of place to serial sexual harasser Bill Clinton. But Bill wasn’t the only Clinton to prompt Froelich’s ire. She slammed Hillary for catering to Wall Street and Big Banks while “Main Street suffered.”
Barack Obama was also a target. Calling him “Celebrity Sycophant in Chief,” Froelich blasted the former President’s disastrous economic policies that emboldened Wall Street and harmed Main Street.
Then she turned her sights on “our current Bumbler in Chief” Joe Biden – listing his already lengthy resume of failures from Afghanistan to the economy to unstainable spending bills that have caused inflation to balloon.
Closing her op-ed, Froelich expressed embarrassment that she voted for every one of them (except Ocasio-Cortez who represents a different district). She explains that she voted Democrat because she felt like she had no other option. While she maintains that the Right is too far right, Froelich says that the Left has now become unrecognizable.
So she’s done with them.
“The fish stinks from the head down,” Froelich writes.
She isn’t changing her affiliation to Republican. Instead, Froelich believes the solution is to expand beyond the current two-party system.
