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.

Go for it dems!
Sounds like an escapee from urban LA-’crisco.
Hopefully he won’t stop talking.
Theyre not afraid of it... they hate it and the oppression it stands for.
That's wonderful, dummies.
Bring it, Carlos . . or is it Carol?
Anyway, you can be the Poster Boy (Girl) for The Cause, an economic system that has FAILED EVERYWHERE
Sean Penn can be your PR Dude
What say, Carol?
Except for maybe Madison, Wisconsin.
That's why most of the midwest voted for Trump.
How you gonna keep them down on the farm
After they’ve seen Bernie
There is method in democrat madness to openly advocate socialism.
There are tens of millions of immigrants now in the United States and it traditionally takes generations for children of immigrants to achieve comparative economic status with native Americans.
This huge influx of immigrants will look around at the cornucopia of plenty surrounding them and decide that they would not mind the government giving it to them and would comprise a huge voting bloc.
The ones that work are.
Amen and second it!
THe question is why are socialists scared of 240 years of the best type of government ever known??????
Equating Chicago with “Midwesterners”...
The problem with this is so many people are sick of the Neoliberal status quo of exporting jobs and being stuck working at Walmart part time. That doesn’t necessarily make people socialist despite what the Chamber of Commerce says.
It’s a false dichotomy.
The second generation in the USA starts transition.
He’s confusing socialism, the state owning the means of production, with agrarian communalism, the voluntary sharing of resources and labor. Many Midwesterners are for the latter, but you’d better keep your hands off their property, and your nose out of their business.
Person does not speak for the midwest.
Delusional, as always........................
