Socialists in the Democratic Party

If you've wondered how America could have changed so fast the past two years that it's become almost unrecognizable, wonder no more. If your liberal friends and family members ridicule you when you said you were convinced that the US government is riddled with socialists, tell you liberal friends and family that you are right.

The Socialist Party of America released a list of seventy United States legislators serving in the 111th Congress who were official members of the Democratic Socialists of America in 2009. A big thanks to Jim Hoft who found the list and published it on his site Gateway Pundit.

Here they are in all their socialist glory. Is your Rep on the list? If so, then consider this a call to action to let everyone you know that now you have proof that your representative really is a socialist. Tell your friends, family, and neighbors. Call into local radio shows. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Volunteer for your rep's opponent's campaign and get him or her tossed out of office.

I'm not surprised Pelosi isn't on the list. She owns a vineyard in California. The DSA doesn't like private ownership or profits.

They are not socialists, they are communists. They will pretend to be socialists as long as they have to, then will reveal their communism.

Marcy Kaptur was my rep also. I am a fifth generation Toledoan and Toledo deserves alot better than this. The whole country deserves a lot better than this. What we don't deserve is the dumb voters. Yech!

Whoever the "Democratic Socialists of America" are, this is basically the exact same list as the Progressive Caucus. Which I'm sure you don't like - but which is no more socialist than the GOP is fascist.


So, in short, I think you've been had. In fact, I'll bet money on it.

Judging by this post and many others you have made recently, you must have been instructed to go into high gear as the election nears. Your posts are all aimed at defending the indefensible and your sputtering attempts to undermine your opponents are becoming laughable.

Do you really think that such trite manipulations are enough for this crowd?

Back to the drawing board tiny troll. Perhaps there's still time to think of something more effective.

Naaaaaaahhh. . . . .

"Whoever the "Democratic Socialists of America" are, this is basically the exact same list as the Progressive Caucus."

Yeah, funny thing, that.

My guess is that the list isn't legit. After all, as Jim so helpfully points out, there's already a Progressive Caucus, and having a Socialist Caucus would just be redundant.

Socialist, commie, marxist..whatever. It's just a difference of how fast they want to push us to their collectivist, statist utopia where the borderless State has more power and the individual has less power. Where the 'right people' make the decisions and the rest obey, or else.

Give me liberty or give me death.

Well, X, this will be easy enough to check one way or another. As I said, I don't think the list is legit. "Progressives" are usually pretty careful not to label themselves as socialists, even though there's no difference between the ideologies.

I'm sure these people are all just as much socialists as the German Democratic Republic was democratic ... or republican, for that matter. Well, credit where credit is due: they got Bernie Sanders right. One out of seventy is what, 1.3%?

Yes indeed, Obama proved he was the new Lenin when his first major initiative was to ignore the numerous cries to nationalize America's imploding banks, opting instead to bail them out with public money. Lefties all LOVE bailing out corporate robber-barons with their victims' money even more than they love performing gay abortions for Satan - jeepers, it's right there in the Communist Manifesto, sheeple!

If such naked communism didn't show his true colors (all shades of red), then surely his blanket pardon of CIA complicity in torture, coming as it did simultaneously with his absolute refusal to prosecute any of the manifold crimes of the previous administration, was merely the Che Guevara cherry on the Bolshevik Sundae. No doubt Americans will long mourn the millions of theoretical conservative dead who were ruthlessly slain in Chairman Obama's imaginary death-camps during the Magic Unicorn Purge of 2008.

The Democrats using a stealth bill to renew Bush's Patriot Act earlier this year simply proves that the diabolical rot of crypto-Marxism is so powerful that it has now co-opted the good wholesome destruction of basic civil liberties that once kept America "free" - so as to twist it for its own hideous ends!

Norman Thomas said:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism."

"But under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."

So, it is hard to argue the "Progressive Caucus" is not socialistic. The "hoax" is arguing they are not.
