A new group of self-avowed socialists are working within the Democratic Party heading into the 2018 midterm elections to advance their progressive agenda; forcing out centrist candidates as the challengers make a hard lurch towards the left.
The new crop includes NY candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has aligned herself with Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.
The two will campaign next week in Kansas and Michigan.
According to Fox News, “a sharply leftist political agenda that once produced eye rolls – on everything from their opposition to capitalism to their questioning the very existence of prisons – has become a serious topic of discussion on social media, and in mainstream political debate.”
“Progressive and socialist candidates who openly reject the neoliberal mainstream Democratic agenda may choose for pragmatic reasons to use the Democratic Party ballot line in partisan races,” said Joseph Schwartz, the Vice Chairman of the Democratic Socialists of America.
“But whatever ballot line the movement chooses to use, we must always be working to increase the independent power of labor and the left,” he added.
Of course libs are brainwashed too–propaganda works on both sides. But you shouldn’t repeat nonsense like Democrats support MS13. It’s false, it’s harmful, and it’s preposterous to anyone who thinks about it for more than a second.
