The Democrats should have learned by now, you never go full leftist. Sure, with Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama they got close. They went downright stupid, teetering on sending America into a socialist spiral that has destroyed every other country that has tried to chase the utopian dreams of Karl Marx, back then. But, they never went full leftist.
The lessons of the past seem to have the opposite affect on the Democrats than they should. They are doubling down on what defeated them when Donald J. Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election. The Democrat Party supporting millennials have no idea what socialism truly is, but most Americans know it's a bad road. The millennials, in fact, overwhelmingly support the concept of communism. We were raised in liberty, and for many Americans, anything else throws up red flags in our brains. The younger generation, however, has fallen for the propaganda, and now stand in the new camp.
They stand in the new camp with the hard left socialist commie Democrats who, according to the film Enemies Within, are bursting at the seams with members who are also associated with the Democratic Socialists of America, Communist Party USA, and the Muslim Brotherhood (and in many cases, all three).
Has the failings of the Soviet Union, North Korea, and California not taught them anything? Has Detroit been nothing more than a blind escapade? Can they not connect the brute force of government control in China, or the misery in Venezuela and Greece to their liberal left policies, and realize that chasing big government socialism is a massive appointment with catastrophe, and historically the death of millions?
After the 2016 Presidential Election, I wrote that Hillary Clinton will be the last white Democrat Party candidate for President in history. The Democrats will never nominate a white person again. They don't understand why they lost against Trump, or the mid-terms that brought about the Tea Party revolution in Congress in 2010 and 2014. The Democrats are unable to see any errors in their religion of secular socialism, so they have pointed their fingers in other directions.
Van Jones calls what happened a “white-lash against a changing country.” The black vote and Hispanic vote (to the surprise of the Democrat Party) abandoned Hillary in this election. The Democrats are not convinced that Trump's message had anything to do with that. As Van Jones pointed out, they think it was racially driven. Therefore, as the minority population increases, the Democrats will not reconsider their message of liberalism, but instead they will chase the black and Hispanic vote by always nominating minorities as their nominees. While accusing Republicans of being racist, it turns out (to no surprise here) that it is actually the Democrats who are the racists, for everything they do is based on race, and separating people into racial segments in society. Julian Castro, Michelle Obama or Kamala Harris will likely be the candidate in 2020.
I really don't care if the Democrats, or the Republicans, or any other political organization is headed up by Hispanics, Blacks, or whomever. That's their business. This article is not about the color of their skin, or the reality that Americans of all races, colors and ethnicities have opportunities to become whoever they wish. Bravo. Good for them. The problem I have with Tom Perez and Keith Ellison has nothing to do with the fact that they are Hispanic and black, respectively, and everything to do with the way they believe politically. I am bothered by their rise to the top of the Democrat Party because in both cases their political alliances are with ideologies that support the overthrow of the American System, and the destruction of our constitutional republic as designed by the Founding Fathers over two hundred years ago.
The Democrats are denying Perez's communist connections and belief system, calling him a “moderate” in the race to become the head of the DNC. Perhaps, since the Democrat Party has swung so far to the left, he seems moderate to the hardcore communists who now populate the party. Perhaps a “mainstream Democrat” has ceased to be what it was, and is now a card-carrying communist hell-bent on the fundamental transformation of America into a communist country. In fact, Keith Ellison, the second place finisher, is so radical, it actually did make communist Tom Perez look a little less radical.
