Socialism Goes Mainstream
Well, maybe not quite, but public radio is pretty mainstream, and on the east coast anyway has noticed that the Democratic Socialists of America are growing rapidly and devoted a seven minute segment to letting their audience know why. They went out and talked to some of the young people who've been swelling the DSA's ranks and I thought you might be interested in hearing them say why they've turned to the DSA and what their complaints about the Democratic Party are.
I'd just add that this report was done in early February and put the DSA membership at 15,000 and I reported a couple weeks ago that it had gone over 20,000.
This report also suggests these DSA members had something to do with causing the Democrats to start opposing Donald Trump's nominees when they were approving them before.
That was wishful thinking in light of the shameful way the Democrats rolled over and panted their approval at Donald Trump's reincarnation as warmonger in chief.
All except one, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who the Democratic Party establishment is now trying to destroy. That would be people like the Howard Dean, a pathetic weasel who has been running around trying to dissuade people from talking about single payer healthcare on behalf of big pharma clients who pay him big bucks to use his insider connections to lobby for them.
