The new face of the Democrat party is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Democrat Socialist from New York. Based on polls Millennials are 61 percent in favor of Democratic Socialism. Which, is why I am an outspoken Conservative Millennial, due to the embracing of radical leftism.
Recently Ocasio-Cortez was on the view, and they obviously praised the young naïve politician. Megan McCain the only semi right-wing individual on the panel asked Cortez,
“Do you think that the future of the Democratic Party is socialism?” McCain asked.
“First of all, there’s a huge difference between socialism and Democratic socialism,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “Democratic socialism, and really what that boils down to me, is the basic belief that I believe that in a moral and wealthy America and a moral and modern America, no person should be too poor to live in this country.”
“That’s what I believe,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “I can understand that there may be some divisions. You know, I don’t think people wake up in the morning and say, ‘I’m a capitalist!’”
If anyone noticed, she did not provide examples to her claim that Socialism and Democratic Socialism are different. She stated, “no person should be too poor to live in this country”, news flash we don’t have a poverty problem in the USA! There are currently more jobs available then people looking since Trump took office.
But what is the difference between Democratic Socialism and Socialism? There isn’t, Socialism is short slang for Democratic Socialism. And if you don’t believe me go read the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx. You will see he typically refers to Socialism as Democratic Socialism throughout the entire Manifesto. But, what is the difference between Democratic Socialism and Communism? Communism is the violent overthrow of a government to have a Communist party, While Democratic Socialism is peacefully electing Communist policies.
So how does the left view the differences between Democratic Socialism and Socialism? Socialism they define correctly, which is the State owns and operates the means of production. Democratic Socialism they define, the Government should heavily regulate all business industries, but still allow private citizens to own the business.
Here is where it gets funny, the way they define Democratic Socialism is the definition of Fascism! Fascism is where the government regulates all business industries, but allow private citizens to own the business. Therefore, Fascism is only considered right-wing to people who are Socialist/Communists. Because, Fascism is one step to the right of Socialism. They love to call Republicans Fascists, yet they don’t realize they literally are Fascists!
Message for all people on the Left, I will quote Ben Shapiro “Read a damn book”!
