New York - Rent Is 2 Damn High Party Ones Blamed Williamsburg Jews For High Rent in NY
New York - In what may be the only debate in the New York gubernatorial race, issues and politics took backseat to a black-gloved, mustached man running on a simple platform: “The rent is too damn high!” and That’s Jimmy McMillan, the candidate for the Rent Is 2 Damn High Party.
McMillan a Vietnam vet and karate teacher made his campaign platform loud and clear by shouting “The rent is too damn high!” nine times during the debate.
According to Gawker in 2005 McMillan was blaming high rent on the Jewish People:
“There are over (25) Twenty Five Thousand Newly Rented Apartments, Available, Now Renting in the Williamsberg Section of Brooklyn, NY. as is all throughout the (5) Five Boro’s. But… they are only being Rented to the Jewish People.”
And, in case you are wondering why Jimmy was wearing gloves :
“Don’t forget I was in Vietnam for two and half years and I have three Bronze Stars, but the chemicals of Agent Orange—dioxin and a lot of other chemicals mixed up—I would get sick. When I get home tonight, I know I’m not going to be able to breathe if I take them off. It could be psychological, I don’t know, but I just put em on and wear them anyway.”
