If the victory of the latest celebrity political candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, in New York is any indication, America may soon have a crisis of rising socialism, not only in urban cities but in our heartland.
Even the most prominent liberals like Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) don’t openly embrace socialism, but the rising generation does.
More alarmingly, they are winning on it — and the mainstream media is celebrating it.
Bernie Sanders was a force to be reckoned with during the 2016 Democrat presidential primary, strong enough to motivate Hillary Clinton to cheat.
And his appeal to the younger generations is not waning, not by a longshot.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
A few months ago, Hillary Clinton was asked about whether her self-identification as a capitalist had hurt her among members of her own core constituency. She said it had. She was right. And the Democratic Party is now moving openly in the direction of embracing socialism.
All of this follows what are, in any serious sense, relatively minor wins for self-proclaimed Democratic Socialists within the party. The momentum began with Bernie Sanders’ stunning 2016 presidential run, which galvanized young people in a way Hillary’s campaign never did. Sanders’ radicalism permeated the party and radicalized ambitious politicians like Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). But Warren and Booker and Harris and Gillibrand still don’t openly embrace socialism as a philosophy.
