Julia Salazar Shrugs Off Controversies To Grab Sweeping Win In Brooklyn

Forward

Excerpt:

Julia Salazar won a stunning victory in her insurgent battle for a New York state Senate seat after a tumultuous campaign focusing on her shifting accounts of her Jewish immigrant background and a raft of other issues.

The 27-year-old leftist activist rode a wave of young, enthusiastic voters in the Bushwick-based district to oust incumbent Martin Dilan, whom she characterized as a puppet of real estate developers. Salazar led with 59% of the vote with almost all of the precincts reporting.

ďTonightís victory is about New Yorkers coming together and choosing to fight against rising rents and homelessness in our communities,Ē she told a raucous victory party. ďTogether, we will build a better New York.Ē

Salazar ran as an ally of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive insurgent who toppled powerful Queens Rep. Joe Crowley in the summer. She was one of a string of anti-establishment candidates who successfully challenged Democratic Senate incumbents perceived as too moderate or friendly to Republicans.

WE DID IT! the race called for @SalazarSenate18 :rose::rose::rose: pic.twitter.com/IotdhnhJohó New York City DSA :rose: (@nycDSA) September 14, 2018

Jeff Klein lost a Bronx seat he held for 14 years and several other members of a rump group of Democrats who sided with the GOP also lost. Simcha Felder, who allowed Republicans to keep control of the otherwise evenly split chamber, survived his primary fight against a little-known opponent in a heavily Orthodox Brooklyn district.

Salazarís campaign became consumed with issues of identity and truthfulness after multiple reports questioned Salazarís self-proclaimed Sephardic Jewish heritage, immigrant status and working-class roots.

The reports reached a boiling point just days before the primary when the Daily Caller outed Salazar as having accused Israel Prime Minister Netanyahuís spokesman David Keyes of having sexually assaulted her. The candidate, aware the story was coming, tweeted about her experience with Keyes.

Although the controversies shone a sometimes harsh spotlight on Salazar, itís unclear whether they hurt her at all in the district. She certainly gained huge name recognition in the fight against Dilan, who is seen as a lackluster figure and barely won his last primary fight.

This article from Forward doesn't emphasize it, but not only is Julia Salazar ignorant, apparently she has some real trouble getting her stories straight. This older article points out some of her discrepancies:

You need to understand that here in ultra liberal NYC, it doesn't matter to the democratic socialist sheep that she changes stories as often as she changes her underwear.

But, if a Republican candidate tried to do the same things as Salazar...

What does this confirm? That over 60% of Brooklynians are total douchebags.

Not that it wasnít obvious before, but like measuring the boiling point of distilled water under normal atmospheric pressure and temperature, itís an interesting if predictable experiment.

Born and raised in Brooklyn and Staten Island here with family still in the area. Believe me, I do understand and agree with what you're saying.

I remember you saying that you had family in the area.

I was born and raised in Canarsie. Where in Brooklyn did you live?

It was a decent neighborhood when I was a kid but that was a long time ago and I haven't been back in quite a while. Maybe it's time to visit my brother.

Maybe it's not...On 5th Avenue between 66 St and 78 St, it would be helpful if you like halal meat, hookah lounges, and speak a Middle Eastern language.

That was right in our neighborhood. My grandmother's house was on 76th Street between 4th and 5th. Before my parents bought a house on Staten Island, we had an apartment on 78th Street near Fort Hamilton Parkway. It's part of an expressway now, I think, or at least it had been for years.

And yes, things have definitely changed.
