Posted on 06/03/2019 9:15:48 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
During the California Democratic Party Convention on Saturday, 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Colorado John Hickenlooper was not well received by the crowd, especially when he warned them about their partys radical leftward shift. "If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer, Hickenlooper told them before being met with a chorus of jeers. "If were not careful, were going to end up helping to re-elect the worst president in American history."
Well, its a little late for that, but clearly, the convention of the radical base of California Democrats wasnt won over by his anti-Trump rhetoric to see past his more moderate views, and clearly have a different candidate in mind for their partys nomination.
Members of the audience began flashing their "Bernie 2020" signs as Hickenlooper attempted to win back the audience by pledging to take on the National Rifle Association. Another attendee flashed the former governor the middle finger. Hickenlooper ended his remarks to more boos as he criticized "Medicare for all," saying it would be improper to kick tens of millions of Americans off their employer-backed healthcare plans. Instead, Hickenlooper said he supports a public option as a compromise, then was forced to end his speech as music began playing.
I cant stress enough how frightening this is. California is the most populous state in the nation, and the states Democrats are so radical that they essentially booed Hickenlooper off the stage at their convention. Socialism is becoming mainstream in the Democratic Party, if it isnt already. 2020 Democrats are increasingly embracing radical socialist ideas, even the so-called centrist Joe Biden. Between Obamas presidency and Bernie Sanders formidable candidacy in 2016, the Democratic Party has essentially reached the point of no return on socialism. The only person who stands in the way of us having a socialist president in 2020 is Donald Trump.

DEMOCRATS BOO GOV. HICKENLOOPER FOR WARNING AGAINST SOCIALISM
Is Jimmy Carter running again???
That’s great - for us.
not so great for those who are in CA...
Wrong! The last occupant before DJT rescued us was the worst. This country was dumb enough to give that empty suit two terms, which explains why commies are running rampant in the Golden State.
Hickenlooper is now the moderate one?
I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!
Yeah! Do away with the Electoral College and this is exactly what you will get, Venezuela on steroids.
RE: Hickenlooper is now the moderate one?
How is he governing in Colorado?
Well then, that’s it. Hence forth I will refer to the Democrats as Socialists.
They’ll need a new party mascot. May I suggest the vulture?
Only thing I ever heard nationally (I’m not a Colorado resident) was his anti-gun agenda.
CA Dems are left of the Communist Party...
Long time Dems are going to have to ask themselves whether they can stomach the socialist lurch the Dems are trying to engineer.
Trump the worst president? Wrong
RE: Trump the worst president? Wrong
It’s going to be hard to change the minds of Democrats. Their minds are already made up.
Democrats booed God too. They’re pretty sick in the head.
The truth is Democrats have not really changed that much.
They just used to lie a lot more about their intentions.
Now, they are not afraid to just come right out and say who they really are.
I was in the military in the Carter years.
It was WORSE.
Islamic terrorism started because of Jimmah.
We also came way too close to losing to the Soviets.
At least because of Obama, we got the House back in 2010 and the Senate back in 2014.
Yes but we got Ronnie because of Carter, who served for our country like you, instead of smoking choom all day at fancy prep schools and universities he had no business being in.
Yep, Dems are radicals - the party for losers, malcontents, takers.
There’s a democrat who is pretending NOT to be a Comunist?
