America’s biggest cities that have been thoroughly destroyed by Democrats lost more than two million residents to mostly red states or areas between 2020 and 2022, according to the data.
Citizens have been fleeing left-wing regions of the country for years, but the mover really picked up in 2020. According to The Hill, 2.1 million left America’s deep blue, big cities between 2020 and 2021. And the numbers kept climbing the following year as another 860,000 Americans fled Democrat infested cities.
The Hill added:
Only a fresh influx of immigrants saved big cities from dramatic population declines. Even with the immigrants, 17 of the nation’s 25 largest counties suffered population losses between April 2020 and July 2022, according to census data tabulated by The Hill.
“The metros, as a group, lost population for the first time since at least 1990, and probably for decades before that,” said William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution.
The historic exodus, combined with chronic office vacancies and surging crime, pose profound and potentially existential challenges to America’s great cities.
Thank you, Democrats. You have destroyed America’s money makers.
The paper adds that crime is a serious problem everywhere Democrats reign”
Big-city homicides rose by two-fifths between 2019 and 2022, from 6,406 to 9,138, according to data from the Major Cities Chiefs Association, a professional organization of police executives.
New York recorded 438 homicides in 2022, up from 319 in 2019. That is a dramatic increase, but both numbers pale next to the 2,262 homicides the city logged in 1990.
The worst losers (most unsurprisingly) were Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles.
Los Angeles County lost nearly 300,000 people, or 3 percent of its population, between April 2020 and July 2022, Census data show.
Cook County, encompassing Chicago and suburbs, lost 166,000 people in that span, about 3 percent of its population.
Kings County, N.Y., better known as Brooklyn, lost nearly 150,000 residents, 5 percent of its citizenry.
New York County, or Manhattan, lost nearly 100,000 residents, a 6-percent hit.
And yet, slow-witted voters continue to vote for these destructive Democrats.
Worse, when these idiots flee their homes and move to red areas, they bring their brain-dead voting habits with them and like a cloud of locusts lay waste to their new homes.
There truly is no more dangerous person in America than a Democrat. From its lowest, dumbest voter, to its highest, anti-American elected official, they are today and always have been a pox on this country.
