This news is not entirely surprising. Cynthia Nixon is running as a Bernie Sanders Democrat, and the Working Families Party is just as far left, if not more. Remember the corrupt political organization known as ACORN? They were involved in the creation of the WFP.

Remember last year when the left became obsessed with the removal of Confederate statues? Critics warned that it was a slippery slope and were assured that it was just about Confederate monuments.

Unsurprisingly, the “Parkland Protesters” were co-opted by the anti-Second Amendment left, and everyone from the media to politicians on both sides of the aisle to former Supreme Court justices has been falling over themselves to support “gun control” in their name.
