Cox: Democratic Leaders Must Disavow DSA

ALBANY – NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today released the following statement:

“On Saturday, the world watched with horror as Hamas terrorist indiscriminately raped, murdered and abducted innocent Israeli civilians.

“On Sunday, New Yorkers watched with horror as radical leftists, some displaying swastikas, marched in Midtown Manhattan to express solidarity with those same terrorists.

“That demonstration was organized by the Democratic Socialist of America, the organization that gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez her start in politics and has since endorsed and funded elected Democrats across New York, including Rep. Jamaal Bowman.

“Statements condemning this rally, while welcome, are insufficient.  New York’s Democratic leaders, especially Governor Hochul, Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, Senator Stewart-Cousins and Assemblyman Heastie must call on every member of their party to denounce the DSA, reject their endorsements and return all funding. Anything less is to accept in their party the presence of antisemitism and sympathy with Hamas terrorists.”
