Democratic Socialists of America Membership Surges After Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Stunning Victory

Post by 1989TransAm » Thu Jun 28, 2018 11:14 pm

How many people here on Speed Talk belong to the Democratic Socialists of America? From what I can see of their platform some on here would fit right in. :D

"The ramifications of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning primary defeat of longtime Queens Democratic boss and Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY) extend well beyond the confines of Capitol Hill.

The 28-year-old member of Democratic Socialists of America—who shockingly won in New York’s 14th congressional district on a leftist platform of Medicare for All, abolishing ICE, and a federal jobs guarantee—inspired a major boost in membership for the organization on Wednesday.
According to Lawrence Dreyfuss, a program associate for DSA, the organization saw a surge of 1,152 new memberships on Wednesday—about 35 times more sign-ups than on an average day.

The last major membership bump DSA experienced was in the month following President Trump’s election, during which time they had about six times more sign-ups than in the previous month.
DSA has undergone a renaissance of sorts in the Trump era, ballooning in size from some 5,000 members in November 2016 to 40,000 nationwide.
The left-wing group’s growth has been attributed in part to broader resistance to the new administration and wider acceptability of the “democratic socialist” label championed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

“The people of NY-14 demanded more from its representative than empty promises and deep pockets,” Christian Bowe of DSA’s National Political Committee said after Ocasio’s win. “We’re proud of this victory, and we know this is only one of many more to come.”

Its great news. Finally completion for the other Marxist party, they both belong to the same religious belief though. One is just a bit more wacky than the other. Too bad ones that support that garbage can't go to a country that is run by that kinda group first and enjoy the slavery and craziness there is under such ruler ship. And the one thing they both enjoy is the financiers of both those parties are the winners in the end if they gain the control they think they can. There is one problem in this country, I think decent high ranking military folks would then have to take control. With that on the back burner I doubt they will go far with their crap. Just speculation.

Just another inept outburst by another delusional citizen who lives in a many decade democratic significant socialist society, but is in gross denial.

Just pull a Ted Kaczynski, and go get a cabin in the mountains and wean all yourself from all your current socialist luxuries.

Socialism is based on working together for the common good, which like most political systems, is normally perverted by a charismatic demagogue, and obviously beyond your ability to comprehend. #-o

I love it! Let the dems keep pushing left as it'll work out well for Americans who know history and weren't brainwashed in college.

College is not the mechanism for brainwashing it is mainly religious institutions that start the indoctrination at a young age and next thing you know they are spueing sky god crap on a national stage.
