Tony, the Racist New Yorker
And he taxes us too
Democrat Tony Vargas has announced his run for the Second Congressional District held by Congressman Don Bacon.
He will try to play a nice Hispanic Catholic family man and try to avoid various issues. This tactic is common, but he is from New York and has a far left agenda. With the death of his father, he has potential to push emotion past the issues but it will still have the air of an Italian Godfather as the leftist agenda is the reason for him running for office.
Tony has been in education all his life. He was part of AmeriCorps through Teach For America, a far left organization focusing on “educational equity”. This is covert racism as equity advocates are interested in outcomes, not equality. Such an approach to life removes all colors and makes the world gray. Merit does not count: only race does.
The left already praises him as a "Hispanic" person, but such terms have been misleading. Tony is Peruvian, just like George Zimmerman, the guy who shot Trayvon Martin but as the media told everyone, Zimmerman was ”white”. Watch the media play this game again.
Tony has had reasonable successes and represents his district, but the problem is he simply is not cosmopolitan enough to represent the Second Congressional district. What I mean is he is limited in his scope and view of the world. This is true of many far leftists.
At times, I have criticized Congressman Bacon for being a bit too cosmopolitan, but he has a proper sense of what the District needs and wants. Tony simply is not there and it shows in the legislation he has proposed as State Senator in the Unicameral.
I have a strong affinity for the hospitality industry where blue collared workers have to deal with customers on a daily basis to turn out good services and products. The District has at least two distilleries producing vodka, whiskey and rum, which many local restaurants, bars and grocery stores carry. Omaha’s restaurant tax is a pain, yet Tony has added to the problem by pushing legislation to tax ready-to-drink cocktails. Why? He makes no designation as to where such extra revenue should go. Maybe the mafia? Hey, who else attacks small businesses for “tribute”?
Tony, the New Yorker, will try to run away from the issues. Do not allow him to do so. See more details at links below. (Please note, I do not provide hyperlinks. You will need to copy and paste the links to your browser. This protects your privacy.)
