Socialists Take Over Democrats

This was predictable.

There was a time many thought it could never happen here. After the long ago purging them from Democrat ranks and our victory in the Cold War, you’d think socialist political power in America was a thing of the past. Think again.

Nurtured in the icy heart of academia during The Long March Through the Institutions, socialism and even worse variations found a home in radical Democrat politics and now in the mainstream of the Democrat Party. David Marcus tells us what this currently portends.

Marcus: In his basement race for the White House last year Joe Biden did a remarkable two step dance regarding his political ideology. Back in February of 2020 Biden himself promised that he would be the “most progressive president in history.” And yet, throughout the campaign his surrogates and media allies insisted that this was old, moderate Joe Biden, lion of the Senate, king of compromise, and that of course he wasn’t far to the left.

It worked. But now the real Joe Biden has stood up and it is entirely clear that he is far more aligned with the lefty Squad in the House of Representatives, than with moderates in the U.S. Senate. Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., have been the face of moderate opposition to a $3.5 trillion dollar transformative social spending package, but they are not alone.

Last week Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., had this to say about the Democrats’ failure to pass a more modest bipartisan infrastructure bill, “There are so many things in there that we need…Speaker Pelosi was ready to do it yesterday, there was a small group that held her up.” But according to the House Progressive Caucus it is the moderates who are the small group standing athwart their massive tax and spend agenda.

By all accounts, the progressives are absolutely right. President Biden, House Speaker Pelosi, Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and pretty much the entirety of the mainstream media are all in for the massive spending spree. Meanwhile Sen. Manchin is being heckled at his houseboat and Sen. Sinema is being videotaped in the bathroom by angry protestors.

Most Democrats are insisting that the top line number, that $3.5 trillion dollars should be ignored, and that all the good programs it will pay for should be the focus of the party’s pitch to voters. They point out that many of the free goodies are very popular, free goodies often are. Individually, voters smile at free community college, and pre-K, and paid leave, and all the rest…

And a word of caution is in order for the progressives in their moment of triumph. They are the party now. They aren’t outsiders, they aren’t gadflies, they aren’t heroic underdogs speaking truth to power. Now they are the power.

The Democrat Party of today is the WORST Democrat Party in my lifetime ! They are a DISGRACE, and all deserve to be thrown out of office. If we do what THEY want to do, it will truly be the END of America, as we know it. The ONLY 2 with ANY intelligence at all, are Manchin, and Sinema !

Clearly they are way past socialism and their funding doesn’t originate in America. Neither do their bill proposals as those are straight from the UN.

I don’t understand how parents didn’t see this much earlier. I saw the nanny state destruction first hand over 30 years just by hiring college kids for part time work.

I started researching this indoctrination in 2017 and immediately found out that adversarial countries have been allowed to “invest” in our educational system for decades with no oversight. Qatar and China are the largest “donors” reported on record as required by law. Part of the reason our paid fools become wealthy on their otherwise “paltry” salaries. They have sacrificed our youth for their wealth.

We didn’t know because WHO DOES THAT?

Most Republican Conservatives don’t send their kids to college. We all know most of those kids are the spawn of Liberal Demorat parents. If we raise our kids the right way (Strong in Republican Conservative with morals) even if they did attend a Liberal cry baby college, they won’t sway to the wrong party.

Haven’t we had enough of these stupid little girls trying to pretend they are adults? Apart from the the fact this administration is for the birds, how much worse can it get? Lots it would seem! Unfortunately there isn’t one brain between all of them that is in working order! How can anyone get past the lies and hypocrisy that is being force fed to us? What did you stupid people learn in school? What mediocre courses did you take? This is no longer funny. We need to get rid of you all to your own desert island where you can rule each other and drive each other more stark raving mad than you already are!

Democrats are liberals not progressives as they like to call themselves. Over the top spending to ruin our country is not progress.

“Free goodies” are never free. Someone has to pay. It’s worth bearing in mind that in the UK (I’m a proud Brit) the Labour Party (Socialist) has always spent, spent, spent and have never managed the economy well. It’s a fact that for 100 years of their existence every time Labour has formed a government, by the time they are voted out, more people are out of work than when they took office. A party for the people, for the “working man”? I don’t think so. More like a bunch of self-serving champagne socialists who like power at any cost. The problem with that is when the Conservatives regain control, they are painted the bad guys because of the policies they have to employ to get the country back on track again.
