The Republican who beat the NJ Senate president on a shoestring budget turns out to be a monster

an anti-American racist/bigoted monster


?s=20


He claimed Vice President Harris only got her job because she was a woman and a person of color

He supported the treason January 6th attacks on our nation's capital

When Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building last January, Durr said it was "not an insurrection," but rather "an unauthorized entry by undocumented federal employers."


More proof of the evil nature of today's Republicans

1. Do you think his voters don't agree with those positions?

 

Given the low cost, a lot of his campaign was probably on social media.

33. It is extremely red

That's our Pennsyltucky.

https://www.njspotlightnews.org/2021/11/nj-senate-president-steve-sweeney-3rd-district-likely-ousted-republican-unknown-edward-durr-other-upsets/

This year, Republican turnout in the 3rd District was enormous, Murray said. “We are still seeing seething over what they see as a stolen election,’’ he said referring to the 2020 presidential election, adding that GOP voters view the Democratic Party as having gone too far in pursuing a progressive agenda.


Another element - even though South Jersey HATES Phil Murphy - I mean they hate this man as a recent long dormant account posted (she hates him too) - he's well loved by Central New Jersey. We love the guy. He's the guy that protected us from racist inbreds in South Jersey and Donald Trump.

Sweeney fucked with him - and I would bet truly loyal Democrats 'under voted' on that ballot as result. You have to go back to the 2017 Primary and read forward.

Regardless - we own Trenton - and I suspect there will be a little bit of retaliation against that district. The guy will be loved by the GOP - but if you don't think I've already called my friend, former assemblyman - and new 16th District Senator to say -

He represents takers - not earners in state? You aren't paying attention.

They are down there worrying about gas.

We are up here worrying about the SALT Cap and wondering why they got so much of the money for education - and the 6th wealthiest county got so little.

Let that sink in. I would rather my money go to Newark or Elizabeth where people train and bus it for an hour and a half each way to get to work . . . instead of whining about Covid shutdowns. We are all 'Essential' up here.

A good part of South Jersey is south of the Mason Dixon line dividing PA and MD.

especially with the draw on technology that was implemented this year and the tech companies allowing folks to work from anywhere.

My new neighbor moved back East when Microsoft allowed her to work from home. Cost of living better than the bay area in Hunterdon County.

Like I said in another thread - you don't vacation at the Shore. They take our blue money and then spit in our face. I'm sure they have plenty of tourism from PA.

One exception - Cape May. Really cool place.

9. Our electoral system gives power to the right wing in the country out of proportion to their

numbers. They are not a majority, but they get to set the agenda by giving smaller population states much more weighting in the Senate, which determines the make up of the judicial, along with gerrymandering and the electoral college, which adds further power to smaller states, by allowing someone who gets less popular vote, to still become President.

The entire GOP is a monstrous, smoldering cesspool of hate. Those in the GOP who do not actively participate are just as bad as they support those who do.
Keith Olbermann was pretty much on target with his Jonestown analogy. They would happily die while tearing down the whole fucking world, just to be able to know that, in the end, they 'Owned the Libs'.

35. as a newcomer

he's low man on the totem pole, right?

And this from the Slate article puts it into perspective:

It’s a little hard to draw any specific ideological lesson here because in New Jersey Sweeney was generally considered an obstacle to Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s agenda rather than a supporter of it. (The state teachers union hates this guy so much that they actually spent $5 million supporting his Republican opponent in 2017.) Meanwhile, your New Jersey–based correspondent is hearing secondhand that Sweeney is calling members of his caucus and blaming progressives for his loss, as one does. In any case, he counted his chickens before they hatched, and Edward Durr drove over them with a semitruck.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2021/11/new-jersey-senate-president-losing-to-truck-driver.html

Not my teachers union but the one for the public school teachers did indeed spend that money.

Chris Christie would get his republican crap through Sweeney. What a tool Sweeney was for the republicans.

This newly elected guy may be a jerk but he's also a powerless schmuck. I predict many good laughs out of his tenure and also that of the Staten Island guy with two families who just won. Vito Fasselli, something like that.

I am realistic. First of all the vast majority of NJ resident who have heard of Durr only know the lie about how "defeated Sweeney with $196"

Few know what an ugly treasonous monster he is.

Without that knowledge there will be no political pressure

So the GOP will welcome another Nazi in their ranks with open arms and the Dems (smarting from the election) will likely let this pass because so few people know what this guy is

49. they'll learn fast enough

I can't agree with you. Let's see how it plays out and if you're right, I'll admit it. Give it six months after he's been in office.

But from lobbying work on behalf of my teachers' union, I know many of these legislators and have for many years. That is why I am taking the position I expressed in my previous post.

And even if I didn't know any of them, my knowledge of interpersonal communication and group dynamics, which I have taught in NJ institutions of higher education for 30 years, tells me that Durr is not going to be maneuvering himself into a position of power.

It's not a matter of political pressure, and even if it was, there isn't enough of a trumper base in the assembly or Senate with which he can align.
