Democrat Socialism is a separate movement and is not the Liberal Democrat Party most Democrats voted for in the past. It should not be included in the Democrat Party. It is a separate philosophy and should be identified as a separate Party .
Democrat Socialism is a misnomer. There is nothing democratic about Socialism. Socialism and Communism are two sides of the same coin. History shows that Socialism and Communism do not share a democrat philosophy but are both fascist in nature. Socialists and Communists both propose utopia but end up with a dictator. Can you name one major Socialist country not ruled by a dictator? Along the way most Socialist and Communist countries have killed millions of their citizens in their march to Socialism and Communism.
In order to make Socialism more palatable its proponents added the name Democrat in front of Socialism. It is a distinct movement that has little in common with Democrat liberalism. If Democrat Socialism was only a name it would not be so serious. However in co-opting the name it has made substantial strides in manipulating liberal Democrat senators and congressional members and the media to join with it.Their name identifies them a liberal Democrats but nothing could be less true. Liberal Democrats are being duped by a name.
Below is an article that appeared in the Associated Press (a liberal media outlet). I quote:
“There is little distinction made between the terms “democratic socialism” and “socialism” in the group’s literature. While Ringelstein and other DSA-backed candidates promote a “big-tent” philosophy, the group’s constitution describes its members as socialists who “reject an economic order based on private profit” and “share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.”
Members during public meetings often refer to each other “comrades, wear clothing featuring socialist symbols like the rose and promote authors such as Karl Marx.”
Unless liberal Democrats wake up to what’s happening to their Party they may not only lose future elections but may lose their country.
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A week ago, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t quite ready to consider himself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a U.S. senator.
Three days later, he told The Associated Press it was time to join up. He’s now the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist.
Ringelstein’s leap is the latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank. As Donald Trump’s presidency stretches into its second year, democratic socialism has become a significant force in Democratic politics. Its rise comes as Democrats debate whether moving too far left will turn off voters.
“I stand with the democratic socialists, and I have decided to become a dues-paying member,” Ringelstein told AP. “It’s time to do what’s right, even if it’s not easy.”
There are 42 people running for offices at the federal, state and local levels this year with the formal endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America, the organization says. They span 20 states, including Florida, Hawaii, Kansas and Michigan.
