Democratic Socialism. That is supposed to awaken our moribund senses to a new and exciting form of Socialism. It’s trending in Leftist circles and is all the rage with millennials and college students.
Cloaked with many names… Democrats. Liberals. Progressives. Republicans. Libertarians. Socialists come in all stripes and colors and patterns. They’ll lie and call themselves whatever they need to be at the moment. Just as Muslims do, the Democrats have assimilated.
A new crop of young and enthusiastic Democratic Socialists have joined the old Socialist guard and together they’ve taken America by storm the past decade. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Tom Perez, Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid.
Sure, they were all Democrats “by affiliation”, but we know what they really are. Half of them deny it, and half of them are proud of it, but there is no mistaking the fact that the Democrat party IS the Socialist Party. You can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still Hillary.
Democratic Socialism is a political philosophy that advocates political democracy alongside social ownership of the means of production with an emphasis on self-management and/or democratic management of economic institutions within market socialism or decentralized and participatory planned economy.
That IS NOT Democratic Socialism as being practiced by the American Left. Our Socialists want total control over the means of production, the eradication of private property, centralized planning, and a centralized economy with the government controlling energy, banks, production, distribution, health care, housing markets, food production, eradicate airplanes and internal combustion vehicles, ban cows (kill them all), and actually pay people a living wage for refusing to work!
Only in America.
