The The New York Times He published a glowing dossier on Elk Kahr, Austria’s communist politician, on Friday, with virtually no criticism. “Yes, this communist politician in Graz, Austria, wants to redistribute wealth, but the focus on housing, her modest lifestyle and her difficult childhood helped her popularity,” the article’s subtitle read.

Kahr was elected mayor of Graz, Austria’s second largest city, in September, and is the leader of the country’s Communist Party. Denise Hrubi of The Times reports that Carr is “smiling” about her hometown now referred to as “Leninggrass” and asserted, “Yes, 100 percent, I’m a convinced Marxist.”

Hrubi reported that “supporters and critics alike describe her as friendly, fun, and straight-forward. Voters often praise her for being ‘not a politician’, but more like a social worker.”

Kahr’s work in housing, starting with the emergency hotline for tenants at the end of the Cold War, is particularly highlighted. “Poor and rich, left and right, call out, word of mouth spreads: Communists care,” the Times continued.

The Times described communist mayor As someone “trying to be a familiar presence on the city streets”.

It has also been reported that “during her political career, she gave up three-quarters of her after-tax salary. Since becoming a city councillor in 2005, Ms. Kahr’s aid has amounted to more than one million euros, or approximately $1,020,000.”

Only at the end was there any talk of criticism of the piece.

“Often, criticism arises not from Ms. Kahr’s work, but from her unabashed embrace of ideology,” my escape wrote. “For example, her admiration for the former Yugoslavia, a multi-ethnic, non-aligned country run by a dictator, shows historical stubbornness,” said Christian Flick, professor of sociology at the University of Graz.

“But voters don’t seem to care, with her June approval rating at 65 percent,” Hrubi wrote.

“As she pulls a cigarette, a deputy who can’t give up, she thought about why communism had failed elsewhere,” the profile stated.
