Who is afraid of the Democratic Socialists of America? Let’s review, shall we?
4. THE NRA
Wayne Lapierre gave us a shout out at the C.P.A.C. conference in February 2018 calling our college contingent, the Young Democratic Socialists of America, a threat. Thanks to his public “warning” to conservatives, the DSA’s membership grew by 100 members that day alone. The organization now boasts over 40,000 members nationwide.
3. The Democratic Party
The reaction by establishment democrats to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s victory has been less than welcoming. Governor Cuomo of New York lamented about Rep. Joesph Crowley’s loss rather than celebrate the victory of an anti NRA, pro labor progressive. Senator Tammy Duckworth even said that the party should avoid going too far left, saying that Cortez could win in places like the Bronx, ‘but not the Midwest.” Senator Duckworth is clearly unaware of a little place called Chicago, practically the capital of American labor movements. The senator might also be interested to know that in the 2016 primary election Senator Bernie Sanders won Michigan, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Indiana. So…
2. Alex Jones
“A SELF PROCLAIMED COMMUNIST HAS WON AN ELECTION!” That was what Alex Jones was screaming about when he learned the news of Ocasio-Cortez’s win. He rambled and ranted to his cult followers about the dangers of the left and the risk of us taking over. (Queue “Nothing but a G Thing” and put on those shades comrades, we got him freaking the fuck out!) Jones also thought Hillary Clinton was pimping child sex slaves in a pizza restaurant and he thought Obama was a communist. I honestly think it is safe to assume that Alex Jones doesn’t know what communism is.
1. Fox News
Sean Hannity gave us a free infomercial when he posted a graphic of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s platform. In an effort to terrify his viewers he merely delighted us on twitter and probably helped our numbers, because it was after they broke this story that the DSA’s membership spiked to over 40,000. Let us also not forget the station’s less than flattering coverage they gave us when we heckled Milo out of a bar in New York, some pundits even calling us an “angry mob.” Yes, how dare we get upset that a pedophile nazi is allowed to walk freely in our country today!? Please excuse me because my eyes almost rolled so hard they nearly popped out of my skull.
This list doesn’t even cover the Washington Post and New York Time’s columnists who I’m sure are more concnerned with staying in their centerist bubbles instead of acknowledging the real world. Buddha said, “You can judge a man by the enemies he has.” I think we have a good list of enemies here.
