‘Democratic’ Socialism: Be Careful What You Wish For

As capitalism recharges our economy, socialists want to destroy the very engine of prosperity.

Once it became apparent that the 2016 election results were real and people came out of their safe spaces to ponder their cruel fate, the attention of the left-wing quickly turned to a certain date: Nov. 6, 2018. They truly believed that would be the day America reacted to the horrible mistake of electing Donald Trump, restoring the Democrat Party to its rightful place as our governing agent. Surely Americans would be chomping at the bit to vote in a “blue wave” to wipe out GOP majorities in the House and Senate and (perhaps literally) handcuff Trump for the last few months of his term.

But a strange thing happened on our way to this meeting with destiny: Trump and congressional Republicans have succeeded in kick-starting an economy that was running in low gear over the previous eight years thanks to a “jobless recovery.” While it’s still possible Democrats will make significant inroads into the GOP advantage, there’s no guarantee that either the House or Senate will flip back to Democrat control.

Meanwhile, a battle begun in 2016 and barely tempered during Hillary Clinton’s campaign now rages for the very soul of the Democrat Party. As evidence, look no further than your local college campus. Chances are you will find this is the age of the democratic socialist.

The Democrat Future Isn’t Socialist, It’s Crazy

They don’t want socialism, they want Trump dead.

The socialists are having a moment. At least if you believe the media

But if the socialists were really having a moment, their big show wouldn’t be a 28-year-old birdbrain whose big achievement was beating a boring white guy in a Hispanic district he didn’t even live in.

If you’re going to take over the Democrats, you need something more to show for it than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or a senile socialist who came in number 2 in the primaries and then again in the DNC.

The Democrats are adopting socialist ideas wholesale. The 2020 Dem nominee will run on a guaranteed minimum income or ‘Welfare for All”. Along with free health care, free college and free copies of Das Kapital. And socialism polls brilliantly with the four core Dem bases of angry government workers, angry college students, angry welfare recipients and San Francisco eco-billionaires who keep all their money in Caribbean banks. But that’s because the Democrats have no ideas except hating Trump and Republicans.

This is not your father’s democrat party. It’s bat sh*t crazy. You really want to be part?

A series of recent events has inspired some soul searching on the part of democrats who still have a brain. Among them, the call to abolish ICE

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren: The Massachusetts senator and liberal fixture said Saturday at a rally in Boston: “We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom by starting with replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality.”
  • Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.: Like Warren, she is a potential 2020 contender. Gillibrand decried ICE as a “deportation force” — a reference to child separation at the border that Trump officials have criticizedas being inaccurately pinned on ICE. She told CNN she would like to get “rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works.”
  • Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis.: The chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus is working on legislation to eliminate ICE. Reps. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., Jim McGovern, D-Mass., Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., and Mike Capuano, D-Mass., have indicated they would support such a bill, according to Vox.
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: The 28-year-old self-declared socialist who defeated fourth-ranking House Democrat Joe Crowley of New York last week. She ran on a platform that includes abolishing ICE.

ICE is tasked with finding and removing MS 13 gang members. The media downplays their threat. Joy Reid thinks MS 13 is a food additive:

Socialism is going mainstream, and Millennials are the cause

 

American Thinker

By Rick Moran

 

A headline in The Hill captures a significant moment in American history: “Four socialist-backed candidates win Pennsylvania legislative primaries.”

The Democratic Socialists of America supported all four candidates, who will almost certainly win in November, given their lack of GOP opponents.

The DSA itself thinks socialism’s time has come:

The DSA hailed the legislative victories as a huge moment for the socialist movement.

Arielle Cohen, co-chair of the Pittsburgh DSA chapter, told HuffPost that she feels a “monumental shift” after the victories, noting DSA’s growing membership since President Trump’s election.

The “right shade of red” is due to a growing acceptance for socialism, especially among Millennials, and outright hostility and opposition to capitalism.

A survey last year was shocking to some of us who vividly recall when naming a politician as a “socialist” was a kiss of death – an indication of a fringe candidate.

The triumph of Bill Ayers

American Thinker

By Monica Showalter

Yes, there have been stories about young people turning to socialism. One of the latest polls shows that a majority of millenials would prefer to live under a socialist, fascist or communist system rather than a capitalist one.

But thing are getting a bit more disturbing now that elections have been happening. Turns out one of the Virginia Democrats elected in last week’s special election. Lee Carter, is a young unreconstructed socialist, and a member of the far-left Democratic Socialists of America. That organization has seen a fivefold increase in its membership, from about 6,000 to now 30,000. You can bet the Communist Party U.S.A., now run in part by the fairly youthful and charismatic Libero della Piana, is seeing similar membership numbers rise.

Hot Air

Ah, California. Is there nothing you can’t make more ideological with every passing week? In the Golden State’s latest effort to prove that they’re really not interested in being part of the rest of the nation, California’s state government – which viciously opposes President Trump’s travel ban – has expanded their own travel ban. Of course, it only applies to state funded travel, and rather than restricting traffic with terrorist hot spots, it blocks airline tickets to states which it deems insufficiently “woke.” In this case, that would be Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota.
