Almost 60 percent of Democrats say Socialism is great for America and has a “positive impact on society,” according to a poll by the American Action Network (AAN).
An article at The Federalist reported that millennials are more than fine with it. A national Reason-Rupe survey found that 53 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds view socialism favorably, compared to only a quarter of Americans over 55. A more recent January YouGov survey found that 43 percent of respondents younger than 30 viewed socialism favorably, compared to 32 percent thinking favorably of capitalism.
The system that has wreaked havoc across the world is now viewed favorably which might explain Barack Obama’s 56% favorability rating. The country is changing demographically, culturally, and politically but not for the better. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz being forced out of the DNC over the leaked email scandal which proved the election was rigged is a short-term solution but in the long-term, it makes way for Socialists and Communists to completely hijack the party.
There is even talk of Bernie – a communist – running the DNC.
Donna Brazile, the former acting Vice Chair, will at least temporarily take over the reins of the DNC. Brazile has been involved in every Democratic presidential campaign from 1976 to 2000.
She is not honest and she is very far left.
The following information was compiled by Discover the Networks.
In 1988, the Dukakis campaign fired her for making unfounded accusations that George H.W. Bush’s presidential campaign discriminated against minorities, and for spreading unsubstantiated rumors that Bush was having an extramarital affair. Now she would be applauded for it.
Less than three weeks before the election, Brazile urged Bush to “fess up” because “the American people have every right to know if Barbara Bush [his wife] will share that bed with him in the White House.”
During her tenure with Gore’s campaign, Brazile charged that Republicans had no real respect for African Americans. They exploit a handful of select black conservatives as tokens, she said, to hide the underlying bigotry.
“The Republicans bring out Colin Powell and J.C. Watts because they have no program, no policy…. They’d rather take pictures with black children than feed them.”
After the 2000 presidential election controversy in Florida, Brazile was appointed chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee’s Voting Rights Institute. She alleged that Republicans routinely sought to keep minorities away from the polls through the use of voter-suppression and intimidation tactics, a charge she has reiterated many times since then.
It’s absolutely not true.
When the community organization ACORN was mired in a massive voter-registration-fraud scandal in 2008, Brazile downplayed it as “no more than a few canvassers trying to meet their quota and make easy money by cheating the system.” By contrast, Brazile views Republican efforts to pass Voter ID laws as the schemes of “extremist governors or legislatures” who “are willing to violate people’s civil rights in order to win elections.”
In a September 2011 appearance on CNN, Brazile denounced conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck for having recently criticized Congressional Black Caucus member Andre Carson’s vulgar derisions of the Tea Party movement.
“[F]or Glenn Beck to somehow or another tell people of color or any Americans about racism, about blackness, about our founding fathers,” said Brazile, “I’m sorry, walk a day, walk a mile, but don’t tell me anything when Glenn Beck also insulted the president … of the United States.” (The latter was a reference to Beck’s 2009 claim that Barack Obama harbored “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”)
She believes white racism is everywhere.
In 2013, for instance, Brazile said that “two ‘scandals’—the IRS tax-exempt inquiries and the Department of Justice’s tapping of reporters’ phones—have become lynch parties.”
“And the congressional investigation of Benghazi may become a scandal in itself,” she added, calling for “an end to partisan sideshows or media witch hunts.”
In a June 2014 appearance on CNN, Brazile took issue with Republicans who had criticized President Obama’s recent decision to trade five captive Islamic terrorist leaders in exchange for former American soldier Robert Bergdahl, who five years earlier, while professing contempt for his own “disgusting” homeland, had deserted the Army and ended up in the custody of the Taliban.
“That’s all they do,” said Brazile. “… all they do is focus their vitriol, their rage, against this president. If the president this morning had scrambled eggs and bacon, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast. If the president had cereal and fruit, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast.”
In July 2014, Brazile claimed that many Americans reflexively “want to destroy [Obama’s] presidency” because of their intransigent “vitriol”—rooted in “that old-school way of thinking about race and opportunity” that was so prevalent in “the past of this country.”
In September 2014, Brazile tweeted: “We need a new constitution.” The tweet linked to a Salon article by historian Andrew Burstein, titled: “Here’s How We Save American Democracy from Charlatans, Loudmouths and the 1 Percent.” In that piece, Burstein, rejecting the beliefs of “those who have been conditioned to fear ‘big government'” and advocates the funding of national political campaigns “exclusively” with tax dollars.
No room for corruption there.
Brazile is no capitalist, she is a believer in big government and she wants a new Constitution. She is a woman of the very far left.
Here is more of what she advocates:
- calls for the imposition of “huge fines” on “industries actively engaged in destroying the planet” from an environmental standpoint;
- says that “instead of rewarding oil and coal interests with government subsidies,” government should “accord them the same treatment [it] has given to Big Tobacco for a whole generation, which has dramatically reduced the percentage of Americans who smoke”;
- advocates the adoption of former President Franklin Roosevelt’s suggestions for modernizing the Bill of Rights. Specifically, as Burstein notes, Roosevelt sought to guarantee everyone “the right to a useful and remunerative job”; “the right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation”; “the right of every family to a decent home”; “the right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health”; “the right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment”; and “the right to a good education.”
