Posted on 07/03/2018 12:14:15 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Pssst! Don't call it socialism, especially in the Midwest. Pass it along.
New York magazine writer Eric Levitz admits in his July 3 article that the socialism of Democratic-Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of the Bronx by way of Westchester County might be a tough sell to voters in the Midwest. His solution is to rebrand that leftist ideology in a way to make socialism somehow palatable to them. Levitz makes his palatability proposals in Ocasio-Cortezs Socialism Can Work in the Midwest With a Rebrand:

More proof that libtard progressive DEMs, as with most politicians, think the American people ARE idiots.......
People need to think about this. One side wants to just have an honest debate and the other side wants to fool people. What’s that tell you?
They call us Nazis, which we deny. We call them socialists which they used to embrace behind closed doors and now they are embracing it in the open.
Nobody in the Midwest has figured out how to use that Internet Thingy yet. They are waiting for Al Gore to visit from San Francisco to explain it to them! ;-)
No problem. Just rebrand the rebranding. It’s not “rebranding”; it’s “clarification”. But this time don’t let the yokels notice.
Too late. We already have SS, SSI, Medicare, etc.
While I think that's how the famous Shakespeare quote went, I could possibly be mistaken.
They really do think if you live west of the Hudson River and east of Portland you’re STOOOOOPID.
What a condescending and patronizing little creep this guy is.
Since ‘socialism” has a bad odor, they could campaign on “ the Venezuelan Miracle”.
Lampposts and piano wire.
The tactic they used to try to gain support for CommieCare “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”.
They always have to lie, they know they would cease to exist as a political force if they admitted the truth (that they hate America, basically).
“They are waiting for Al Gore to visit from San Francisco to explain it to them!” ;-)
Good thing we got ourselves a transcontinental railroad to get him there fast! He should telegraph ahead to let folks know he’s on the way! ;)
We would be utterly truthful in calling them Stalinists. Especially the part where they want to suppress dissenting speech-they don’t seem to realise what their multiple calls to shut down the few conservative media platforms really sound like. Instead of debating the issues, they want to suppress dissent.
And use the Pony Express so all them yokels can get a hard copy.
Socialism is the worlds biggest Ponzi scam... promises much, delivers little but misery. Benefits only those at the top... when it inevitably collapses, the leaders” at the top grab whats left and haul butt!
DSA is the major organization on the American left with an all-embracing moral vision, systematic social analysis, and political praxis rooted in the quest for radical democracy, social freedom, and individual liberties.
For starters, those individual liberties only goes as far as the DSA doctrine...and their on going quest for Utopia using other peoples money....i.e., tax you into submission.....there is no Utopia, just their myth of one.
Many complain about our long a ago slavery, but those same groups, professors, authors etc. would apparently go back to that way of life to be a Socialist. Useful idiots to the power elite who peddle this life on welfare....so power over citizens and stolen wealth belongs to them.
