Statement from NYSYR Chair Peter Giunta following the condemnation of Democrat Socialists by New York Democrats

By October 9, 2023Statements

The following statement is from NYSYR Chairman Peter Giunta regarding a statement from the New York State Democratic Party condemning the Democratic Socialists of America for their rally celebrating the massacre in Israel:

“It took the New York Democrats more than 24 hours after first being called out by the New York State Young Republicans to denounce today’s DSA-orchestrated rally of terrorist sympathizers celebrating the massacre in Israel.

It is embarrassing that it took a major political party so long to make such a statement — but we’re glad to see that, after our persistent prompting, they did the right thing.

Young Republicans will not only stand against anti-Semitism and Jew hatred, we will also FIGHT it and anyone who enables it. Now we’re calling on the New York State Young Democrats to do the same.”
