Skip to comments.How a Socialist Won (Seattle's Occutard Kshama Sawant & NYC's stale white guy Bill de Blasio)

Lesson #9: Join the Fight
Last but not least, we had Kshama Sawant an intelligent, eloquent, passionate yet tactful immigrant woman of color running against stale establishment white guys in both 2012 and 2013.
Sawant is an impressive speaker and a determined fighter, no doubt. But she is also an ordinary person who happened to attend a couple public forums in 2008 and was impressed with the Socialist Alternative speakers political clarity. Through discussions with Socialist Alternative, she decided to dedicate her life to fighting for a socialist world.
Most ordinary people gravely underestimate our own potential to play a role in changing the world. We should follow Sawants shining example and commit ourselves to this cause for which there is no greater reward. Nothing in life is more meaningful than fighting alongside other working-class people to end inequality, oppression, and environmental devastation. Join Socialist Alternative today.

...as far as you know. If not, she will. Socialists LOVE the free market - just as long as they can manipulate it for their own ends.

Socialist.....you know.....like North Korea where they kill your entire family if you burp in the presence of the head guy. The friendly socialists.
I hope they’re ready for when the people they expect to loot from tell them where to go and how to get there.
If this crap keeps up, we will have to fight them people one day.
In NYC, they had a chance to elect the first lesbian mayor. They passed.
They had a chance to elect the second black mayor, the first in 20 years. They passed.
They elected another straight, white guy, but he's married to a black (former) lesbian, so he's cool. That's close enough. Liberating, even.
Granted, I thought that there was no such thing as a former lesbian, but they have two kids, so something's up.
Totally agree...It’s maddening living in a state with a festering bunghole like Seattle deciding every ballot. I say we wall off the city and shoot anything that tries to escape. It’s the only way to be sure.
Maybe nuke it from orbit?
Just let my family and I have some warning before you do. When I'm clear of the area, then you can party like it's 1999.
Here in Illinois, we have Chicago.
