In the age of Ocasio-Cortez seemingly being the face of the Democrat Party, established Party members are being left behind and if they do not do something soon, they will lose their Party and it will ultimately disappear, as I have said in pervious articles.
Here is where Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) comes in. Speaking to the New England Council during an event used to launch national campaigns, Warren said: “I am a capitalist to my bones.”
This is interesting because we have been seeing a trend toward open admittance of socialism in the Democrat Party. For one of its members, particularly Warren of all people, who is as far from capitalist as Bernie Sanders, is truly interesting.
Now, chances are that she will walk these comments back soon enough, but the fact remains that she is trying to position herself as at least more center-Left, ala Bill Clinton, than full-fledged Left. And this could be in response to the mere fact that people are walking away from the Democrat Party because they can no longer recognize it.
Do not misunderstand, she is as socialist as she ever was, but at least she is trying to put the mask back on. The problem is that, once the monster is revealed behind the mask, putting the mask back on does not matter at all.
In recent time, we’ve seen only escalation from the Democrat Party, not de-escalation. With people like Maxine Waters encouraging violence against Trump staffers and, subsequently, Trump supporters, people’s image of the Democrat Party has been deteriorating. Every time they call for either the impeachment of Donald Trump for the tiniest of things that trigger them, the American People see the Democrat Party as the socialist monsters that they are. And only now, after nearly TWO years of Trump’s presidency, are we seeing some form of course-correction from the Left.
Make no mistake, it’s not that Warren actually wants to go back center-Left. It’s that she may want the Democrat Party, or at least herself, to APPEAR center-Left. Deception has been their greatest weapon against Republicans, but they have abandoned it trying to match Trump’s “extremism”. But before Trump came along, the Democrats were happy to appear centrist while applying socialist policies.
Actually, that’s not entirely true. Bernie Sanders came out as an open socialist before Trump became President. And Obama accelerated the Party’s shift farther to the Left. But even still, people like Hillary Clinton were not quite ready to oust themselves as socialists, since socialism still has a negative connotation with most people.
But the rise of Bernie’s popularity and the emergence of Trump as a “hard-Right” President, they felt compelled to unmask themselves and openly admit to their socialist ideologies (not necessarily all of them, but enough to make socialism the Party’s main ideology).
However, despite their attempt at fighting strong capitalism with open socialism, Trump has not only remained popular with his base but has also GAINED popularity with approval numbers hitting the high 40s and low 50s on a good day.
Not only has he become more and more popular, but he’s also succeeded in many, MANY things he wanted to accomplish in his agenda. And it’s only been A YEAR AND A HALF!
Every attempt made against Trump has ultimately backfired on them and made them less popular. Sure, they’ve won a few elections here and there, most notably in Alabama, but their commitment to going completely bananas is and will backfire on them massively, particularly in a big election like the Midterms.
The threatening “Blue Wave” the Left had been touting at the beginning of the year has all but dissipated, even after arguing against Trump’s Helsinki meeting. And even with Ocasio-Cortez’s success over the incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley, there is not much hope for the Left in the midterms. The turnout was pretty small for the fact that Ocasio-Cortez is the socialist leader for the Democrat Party now.
Now, I know what you’re going to say. “It was just a primary election. They don’t usually get that much turnout.” I would agree with you if it weren’t for the fact that Ocasio-Cortez is a very open socialist in NEW YORK! If socialism is the Party’s future and people like Ocasio-Cortez are its future, you would think more people in her district would have been more excited to vote for her. According to the New York Post, of the 214,750 registered Democrat voters in Ocasio-Cortez’s district, only 27,744 voted. Ocasio-Cortez won by 4,000 votes.
Only 13% of registered Democrats in the district turned out to vote. In another Democrat race, only 9% of registered Democrats turned out to vote. In contrast, a GOP primary in the 11th Congressional District turned out 18% of the vote. Again, THIS IS NEW YORK!
People were not that excited for Ocasio-Cortez as a candidate in her PRIMARY! Of course, I fully expect more people to vote for her in the general election. That’s only logical. But there doesn’t seem to be too much excitement for her anyway. Let’s not forget that she seems to be like Hillary Clinton in that the more she speaks, the dumber she sounds, if her comments on Israel “invading” Palestine and low unemployment numbers being due to people having two jobs is anything to go by.
Since this is the direction the Democrat Party seems to be going, people like Elizabeth Warren might just be smart enough to realize that such open socialist ideologies that will destroy the fabric of society might not be such a good idea. And so, she claims to be a capitalist, despite knowing full well that she is anything but.
However, with such a claim comes backlash from her own supporters, with some on Twitter claiming to abandon their support for Warren after such comments (which is why I believe she will try to walk them back).
She has been one of the most socialist Senators in Congress for a long time, so she will never receive support from Right-leaning Independents and Republicans. These claims will now cause a rift between her and her base, which is full of mind-numbed socialists all the same. The result? An unpopular Senator who has no one to support her anymore except a few centrist Democrats who somehow might believe her claims.
But this is just talking about Warren. What about the rest of the Democrat Party? Well, I believe we are seeing a silent civil war. The young open socialists challenging the old establishment Democrats who know how to survive in politics. Again, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are smart enough to survive calls of stepping down. They will fight back against people like Ocasio-Cortez if they feel threatened by her, and I believe they do. Even Bernie Sanders, who seemingly has embraced the establishment since his endorsement of Clinton might be willing to fight back, given his willingness to not abolish ICE (don’t misunderstand, he simply wants to reform it, not protect it) and his doubling down on it.
At this point, I think some of the establishment Democrats are beginning to realize that in order to help their Party survive, they cannot allow such wild calls for full-fledged socialism. As I said, make no mistake. That is precisely what they want, but they do not feel they can accomplish that just yet. They want socialism but can’t afford to call it that quite yet, at least not a lot.
That is, in my mind, at least one explanation for Warren’s claims. Despite the fact that it’d be easier to prove she’s a Native American than a capitalist, the reasoning behind such a claim might be to help the Party survive, at least until Trump is out of the picture.
Sometime in the near future, I expect the Party to go full-fledged openly socialist. But the Democrat Establishment is set in their ways and does not want to be replaced. They ensured that in the DNC primaries. They might ensure it here. The biggest and most significant difference is that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is no longer the head of the DNC. Keith Ellison, the man PROMOTING Ocasio-Cortez, is.
This is why I believe it might be a toss-up between the Party trying to centralize themselves at least in speech and the Party committing to its eventual self-destruction.
Where do I, as a Christian, conservative and Trump supporter, stand? I’m not quite sure. I’m conflicted about all of this. On the one hand, I want to see the Democrat Party completely implode, but on the other, such a thing could lead to a one-party system of government. Even if that party is the GOP, I would not want a one-party system.
Of course, nothing is ever quite so simple. There would be a lot of factors and variables in place that would have to be calculated to fully know whether the Democrat Party would completely collapse if they went full-on socialist. In my understanding, there are not enough people in America to want socialism, which is why I doubt they would ultimately win big elections, but I could be wrong.
And in my understanding, even if they were to win elections and run the country, they would be so destructive that no one would ever want another socialist in power ever again, or at least for a few generations.
I don’t say that the things socialist want would destroy the fabric of society for no reason. I have said multiple times and explained it thoroughly that the things they want would ultimately destroy society. They can’t realistically implement everything they want, but even what they can implement would cause havoc.
The implementation of complete socialism would ultimately destroy society and the Democrat Party. And don’t tell me China is doing fine or even great because they have communism. Even they don’t implement complete communism. If they did, they would sink and bankrupt themselves within a decade.
Now, as a Christian, I hope and pray that the Democrat Party sheds their socialist tendencies in favor of free market capitalism. Of course, I do not think the Lord will have them do that, but one can only hope.
“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
