The Democratic Party is fielding candidates that show just how far they have moved away from the party of Thomas Jefferson.
The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence led by the University of Maryland, in a 2013 article in the Journal of Terrorism and Political Violence titled “The Emerging Red-Green Alliance: Where Political Islam Meets the Radical Left” noted:
No matter how unlikely it may seem, radical Leftists and Islamists have come closer in recent years. Drawing on substantial ideological interchange, and operating at both state and non-state levels, the two movements are building a Common Front against the United States and its allies. In this article, we use framing theory to examine the contemporary convergence of political Islam and the radical Left. Both radical Leftists and Islamists have utilized the master frame of anti-globalization/anti-capitalism and the master frame of anti-colonialism/anti-imperialism to elicit support from the widest possible range of people. The emerging Red-Green alliance presents a complex challenge that will require careful attention from U.S. and European policymakers.
Here’s a video flashback when Chris Matthews asks key leaders of the Democratic Party about the difference between a Socialist and Democrat:
Today America’s Democratic Party resembles a real red/green alliance.
The Democrats are truly the party of Karl Marx and Mohammad. The new faces of the Democratic Party are either Socialist Democrats, like Ocasio-Cortea or Islamists, like Linda Sarsour and Rep. Keith Ellison. Many have written about the coming Red/Green alliance. We are now seeing it in the form of candidates who are winning Democratic Party primaries.
Watch Ocasio-Cortex try to describe the difference between Socialism and Democratic Socialism on ABC’s The View:
The Oxford Dictionary defines Socialism and Democratic Socialism as follows:
A political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. Policy or practice based on the political and economic theory of socialism. (in Marxist theory) a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of Communism.
A form of socialism pursued by democratic rather than autocratic or revolutionary means, especially by respecting a democratically elected legislature as the source of political change; (also more generally) moderate or centrist socialism.
Groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Occupy Wall Street, Women’s March and Families Belong Together all demand radical changes to American policies.
The July/August 2017 issue of The Atlantic had an article titled “What’s Wrong With the Democrats?” by Franklin Foer. Foer wrote:
Leaderless and loud, the Resistance has become the motive power of the Democratic Party… The feistiness and agitation of the moment are propelling the party to a new place.
But where? The question unnerves Democrats, because the party has no scaffolding… Resistance has given the Democrats the illusion of unity, but the reality is deeply conflicted…
To produce a governing majority, the party will need to survive an unsettling reckoning with itself. Donald Trump didn’t just prevail over the Democrats; he called into doubt their old truths. [Emphasis added]
The Democratic Party is eating its own. Watch this video about how Hispanic Democratic Socialist candidate Ocasio-Cortex won the Democrat primary in New York because she targeted her Democratic opponent was white.
As a young man I was a JFK Democrat. He was my American idol. It was the time of Camelot and at the peak of American economic, political and military power. JFK embodied a vision of the future that Americans embraced.
The party of JFK is long gone. Rising from its ashes is the red/green alliance.
