Video || DNC Chair Perez Doesn’t Deny Ocasio-Cortez is a Socialist, Says She’s Dems’ “Future”

Good. If she represents the future of the Democratic Party, then the Democratic Party doesn’t have much of a future. I don’t think this country is ready for socialism. Not yet, anyway. We still have to more work to do on getting enlightened, dontcha know.

The RNC is smart to be promoting this video or DNC Chair Tom Perez calling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who just unseated a leading Democratic congressman in a New York congressional primary – the “future of our party.”

Radio show host Bill Press calls her a socialist, and Perez not only doesn’t seem the least bit bothered, he suggests that’s where Democrats need to go.

It’s not President Trump who demonstrates that we’re a “fallen” country, as liberals would have it. It’s that Democrats now routinely accept socialists as their leaders, with no concept of the danger of this. That’s how far we have fallen.

Here. Here’s socialism.

In a country rich with oil.

A Gift to the GOP: Democrats Move Toward Leninism Light

The victory of extreme leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York over Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat and someone who many thought would replace Nancy Pelosi, is a huge win for Republicans and President Trump.

Just a thought – how come the press never describes someone like Ocasio-Cortez – who supports universal health care, guaranteed employment, and abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency – as “extreme” or “radical”? Or even “left-wing.” Only conservatives are “extreme” or have a “wing” attached to them. Sorry, just thinking out loud.

Anyway, my point is, even if the press believes socialists are perfectly mainstream, much of the rest of the country still does not, and plenty – particularly conservatives – will turn out in force to support Republicans. People like Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters – Republicans should hope to see more of her if her message wasn’t so dangerous – are confirming that the Democratic Party belongs to Bernie Sanders, whose policies are insane.

Professional Republicans are well aware of this. The RNC Tuesday released this video, a quite effective one, seems to me:

Of course, Trump gets this too.

Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t the only victory for the left, as Politico reports:

It wasn’t the only victory for liberals in competitive primaries on Tuesday.

Former NAACP President Ben Jealous won the Democratic nomination for Maryland governor, campaigning over the final weekend with Sen. Bernie Sanders, even as Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker had most of the state party in his corner.

Elsewhere in New York, a Syracuse University professor, Dana Balter, beat a more moderate opponent backed by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Juanita Perez Williams in a battleground House district. Rep. Jared Polis won the Democratic nomination for governor in Colorado, and Joe Neguse, a preferred candidate among liberals, won the nomination to replace Polis in the House.

While Crowley was the only incumbent to fall, two of his New York City colleagues — Reps. Yvette Clarke and Carolyn Maloney — were held under 60 percent against 30-something candidates who said the progressive moment inspired their under-the-radar campaigns.

These people are going to make Nancy Pelosi look completely reasonable and moderate. They are also going to flatten out the Blue Wave everyone was expecting this year.

The bad news is that the opposition party is now one step from communist.
