Democratic Socialism Tag

Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled the resolution for her Green New Deal with Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA). The resolution could cost up to $7 trillion. She stated that this deal "calls for a 'national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II.'" Somehow Ocasio-Cortez managed to fit into this Green New Deal a guaranteed job and health care for everyone. On Twitter, Lee Doren found a quote that proves this Green New Deal will hit the poor people the most.

Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus recently commented on Neil Cavuto's FOX News show on the rise of socialism, especially the new Ocasio-Cortez wing of Congress, and the role higher education has played in the phenomenon. Marcus is right to recognize higher education as a key player. Left wing concepts of social justice have quickly moved from the halls of academia to Washington, DC. Democrats in Congress increasingly sound no different than campus activists.

Democrats are setting up the table with a new narrative for 2019 and 2020. It is increasingly apparent that they're planning a hard push on climate change. It's all about the "Green New Deal" being advanced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The only thing Bernie Sanders likes more than vilifying 'millionaires and billionaires' is talking about the imminent danger of climate change. He has frequently lambasted President Trump and Republicans for failing to take the issue seriously. But now we learn that like many people on the left, Bernie has a massive carbon footprint, especially when it comes to air travel.

The left's new favorite Democratic Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, appeared at a town hall meeting in Queens on Friday night and compared fighting global warming to defeating the Nazis in World War II. It is becoming increasingly difficult to take her seriously as a person, let alone as a candidate.

CNN State of the Union host Jake Tapper, one of the last reliable MSM reporters, got socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez all tongue-tied when he asked her plain and simple how she would pay for her $40 trillion platform. From Mediaite:
“Your platform has called for various new programs including Medicare-for-all, housing as a federal right, a federal jobs guarantee, tuition-free public college, canceling all student loan debt,” said Tapper, listing a few of the items the New York candidate has promised to pursue. “According to nonpartisan and left-leaning studies friendly to your cause including the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities or the Tax Policy Center, the overall price tag is more than $40 trillion in the next decade.”

Actor Jim Carrey appeared on Bill Maher's show last week and sang the praises of socialism; at one point he stated, "We have to say yes to socialism — to the word and everything.” Venezuelan journalist Laureano Márquez was appalled and wrote a searing response in which he noted that Venezuela's on-going crises are the direct result of socialism. He also points out that people are "fleeing the country 'however way they can' as they do not have access to medication, food or other basic needs."
