Dims have been pushing socialism for decades and hiding behind "Progressive". Now they aren't even trying to hide the fact they are a Socialist party.

Since Democratic Socialists of America member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s earthquake victory over Rep. Joe Crowley on Tuesday, everyone from the New York Times to Fox News has told you what democratic socialism means. They haven’t done a very good job.

So as director of DSA, the largest socialist organization in America, I’ll explain. Democratic socialism means a world where we all can live in dignity and comfort. It means a world that we, the working-class majority, run for ourselves, without the poverty, oppression, environmental devastation, and war the wealthy have given us.

Democratic socialists believe that if poor and working-class people unite and fight across differences, we can win a better world — a democratic socialist world.

Dems should hop across the border to Mexico. They just elected a socialist President. Utopia awaits them.

The trouble with left-wing Democrats is that they lack a proper respect for right-wing demagoguery. Hence, at the moment, many of them extol socialism -which is to American politics what curling is to sports -- and are calling for the abolition of ICE, generously giving Donald Trump yet another opportunity to demagogue on immigration. They will, if allowed, declaim their way to another defeat.

Wow one win means all that about all liberals? Imagine if two whole socialists won.
You forget that Hillary and the DNC had to cheat so that a geriatric Socialist wouldn't be the Dim nominee for President in 2016.

Funny thing is, all that cheating got you President Trump.

Bernie is no FDR. He would have lost. But a similarly transformational figure on the left is on the horizon.
