A headline in The Hill captures a significant moment in American history: "Four socialist-backed candidates win Pennsylvania legislative primaries."
The Democratic Socialists of America supported all four candidates, who will almost certainly win in November, given their lack of GOP opponents.
The DSA itself thinks socialism's time has come:
The DSA hailed the legislative victories as a huge moment for the socialist movement.
Arielle Cohen, co-chair of the Pittsburgh DSA chapter, told HuffPost that she feels a "monumental shift" after the victories, noting DSA's growing membership since President Trump's election.
"We won on popular demands that were deemed impossible. We won on health care for all, we won on free education," she said.
"We're turning the state the right shade of red tonight," she added.
The "right shade of red" is due to a growing acceptance for socialism, especially among Millennials, and outright hostility and opposition to capitalism.
A survey last year was shocking to some of us who vividly recall when naming a politician as a "socialist" was a kiss of death – an indication of a fringe candidate.
In the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation's "Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism," 58 percent of the up-and-coming generation opted for one of the three systems, compared to 42 percent who said they were in favor of capitalism.

Enjoy your Europe.
GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SCHOOLS and the NEA are the cause
This nails it, and is very entertaining to boot:
Echoing the old advertisment, ‘Delta is ready when you are’. Socialists can catch a flight to the Worker’s Paradise of Venezuela anytime they want (and don’t let the airplane door hit you in the butt).
Couldn't agree more. The left's gradual policy shift in our education system has churned out exactly the product they'd hoped it would.
Great video. Thanks for posting the link.
Starting with Dewy and Horace Mann.
Socialism is the perennial debutant with the sullied reputation ... that NO rational person wants to marry and take home!
And CW2 draws ever closer.
Under Obama, schools aggressively promoted socialism, islam, and gender fluidity, while spiking math and logic.
It has had a real effect, and needs to be reversed. It was deliberate sabotage.
I do believe that the Socialists will seize control of the Democrat Party, putting the old Clinton DLC people out to pasture.
Future political battles in this country will be between a Trumpist Populist party and a Democratic Socialist party. Establishment RINOs will also be rendered irrelevant.
Proof that people are fickle and/or ignorant. Toss in a little “group think” and peer pressure.
Heck, maybe we need a world wide crisis every few years just to remind people of what is important. We do seem to be repeating the same mistakes.
A major crisis will eventually happen because of people’s ignorance and complacency. Lets hope that we can recover from another Communist threat or whatever soup du jour crisis will happen.
There are about ten thousand “educators” who deserve to be tarred and feathered.
Yep, teachers are part of the problem, thee, said it. It's not just the union thugs and the pols who exchanged benefits (taxpayer funded gifts) for votes
Everything socialists/communists wish to “redistribute” are produced by capitalism.
Socialism/communism can only exist as a parasite of a capitalist host.
This is why Bernie will be up for the next election.
Months after communists took power in Russia (1917), their embassy staff organized the Communist Party - USA (1918).
The first thing they accomplished, was taking control of the nascent Teacher’s Union in NYC.
Influencing/controlling education has been a central plank in their plans to subvert and take over the USA ever since.
Public schools are the cause. It just hasn’t worn off the millenials yet. We need to address the schools.
The DNC already HAS been taken ove by the socialists, and the Clinton’s WERE being pt ot to pature, but they thought they had a sure thing in HilLIARy, and she would faithfully continue and extend Obammunism
Not even they thought she was that horrible a candidate that she would lose.
Now, the clinton cabal is growing very toothless.
But those 900 FBI files are going to continue paying dividends until everyone in them are all dead.
