Skip to comments.Former Sanders delegate: 'Midwesterners aren't scared of socialism'
Posted on 07/10/2018 6:52:04 AM PDT by pgkdan
Chicago alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa penned an op-ed for NBC that encapsulates the reasons why Democrats will be unable to capitalize this November on the relative unpopularity of Republicans in the Midwest, given the Dems' turn to the hard left.
Rosa is described as "Queer, Latinx and a democratic socialist" whatever that means. In political terms, it means he would be a gone goose if he ran for Congress in the vast majority of districts anywhere in the Midwest.
But Rosa doesn't see it that way. In fact, he believes that Midwesterners would embrace a socialist candidate and are "not scared of bold left-wing policies." To "prove" his point, he cites labor activists like Eugene Debs and political movements like the left-wing activists who created the reformist movement in Wisconsin early in the 20th century. He failed to mention the Democratic Farm-Labor party in Minnesota that still dominates Democratic politics in that state today.

They live in DENIAL.
It turns the old ideas of immigrants on their ears. It once was mainly for people with advancement mentality. Then it got dumbed down to career menial laborers. Now it’s charity cases. And if we want to do charity, most such operations are better done while the person is in their own country.
If they aren’t afraid, they should be.
If they really want socialism that badly, they should move to N. Korea or Cuba.
They are scared of it because they are not in control of it. That is all that this brand of Democrats wants, to be in charge of every single aspect of every single persons life.
Little tin gods, echoing their supreme god, Satan.
“I will be like the Most High”
With an ass-u-me-ption that everyone is copacetic with low sightedness.
“Socialism” is just a fancy word for “free stuff”. It only lasts until the money runs out and people have to start scrounging for toilet paper.
People forget that the Progressive Era was set off by what H.L. Mencken called ‘cow state Messiahs’ and it was Eastern elites that were conservative.
Who deems it better to rule in a hell than to serve in a heaven.

Those who cannot conceive of a heaven where they are not worshiped. If they are not the center, than it obviously is not heaven.
Only 23,000 votes would have swung Minnesota to Trump. Most of Minnesota is actually deep red. It’s the virtue-signaling, white-guilt city folk that vote D.
And with new life being breathed into the iron mining based economies of the iron range, no doubt that Minnesota will tip.
The only people that embrace socialism are brainwashed high school and college kids. And some of the country club snobs that would come out ahead in a socialist sh*thole.
Socialism does NOT work.....
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
..and bread...and meat... baby formula...
Just have a little chat with Venezuelans...once among the richest countries in South America!
Yes, Madison, Wisconsin is a bastion of pure conservatives, all of them. /sarc/
Totally agree. Mn 8 going for Trump in the heart of big union country makes his total premise wrong! Hopefully we pick it up again this fall.
Proves my post is correct.
College town which warps things to the academic.
From a far lefty who has roots deep in the socialist city of Chicago
Knows nothing about midwesterners
These Liberal Marxists are welcome to immigrate to Venezuela or Cuba later today if not sooner. Let’s pray they take Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Cummings, Durbin, et al with them. And, add McCain to the list.
yep...he imagines that his ward in Chicago is representative of the midwest. The guy's an idiot.
