The Democratic Socialist Debates


By Newt Gingrich

Tuesday night’s debate was one more reminder that we are living through the death of the Democratic Party.

It is presently being replaced by the Democratic-Socialist Party. If you think I exaggerate consider these examples.

Imagine that any candidate last night had had the courage (or lack of sense) to actively defend President Bill Clinton’s policies on welfare reform, capital gains tax cuts, balanced federal budgets, or his 1996 State of the Union assertion that “the era of Big Government is over.”

Imagine that any candidate had agreed with President Barack Obama’s original 2008 position that “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.” Or imagine that a candidate had defended Obamacare as the solution to health care in America and opposed any limitation on the right to buy private insurance.

When the last two Democratic presidents are no longer defendable, something profound has happened.

We have already seen the old Democratic Party (and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, and Jim Clyburn literally represent the old Democratic Party) being eclipsed by “the Squad.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now the spiritual leader of House Democrats, and every major Democratic presidential candidate has endorsed radical Green New Deal-type proposals that would expand government, destroy the energy industry, radically change America, and plunge the economy into a depression.

The Democratic-Socialist Party wants to outlaw private health insurance, punish the successful (especially the wealthy), and expand government control over virtually everything. The Democratic Socialist candidates range from wanting to confiscate guns; forcing the radical California gender curriculum in every state; removing the tax exception for every church, synagogue, and mosque that defines marriage as between a man and a woman; providing free (meaning taxpayer-funded) health care to people living in the country illegally; and opening the border so anyone and everyone will be able to enter the United States without having to worry about immigration law.

Some of these radical candidates favor tax-paid sex change operations in prison – and genderless prisons (one of Biden’s contributions to the dialogue) so male criminals could declare themselves female to be sent to women’s prisons.

Imagine that one of the candidates had said he or she were against abortion. The result might have been a riot – and at a minimum an expulsion of the heretic. Instead, the new Democratic-Socialist Party stands for abortion on the last day of pregnancy, and its most radical acolytes are now for infanticide after delivery as long as “the infant would be kept comfortable” (see the New York State law endorsed by the Democratic Governor of Virginia).

Almost equally heretical would have been a candidate defending Columbus Day (favored by 57 percent to 29 percent with the Democratic-Socialists once again in a position favored by about a quarter of the country). Imagine that candidate attacking the National Education Association’s pledge that “educators must acknowledge the existence of White supremacy culture as a primary root cause of institutional racism, structural racism, and White privilege…..the Association will actively advocate for social and educational strategies fostering the eradication of institutional racism and White privilege perpetuated by White supremacy culture.”

White supremacy culture is left-wing code for American history, American exceptionalism, the rule of law, the Constitution, and the various habits and patterns which made America the most prosperous and powerful nation in history. Can you imagine one of the candidates last night arguing that our schools should not be centers of anti-American indoctrination dictated by left-wing unions? Of course not. They would be booed off the stage.

As The Wall Street Journal put it in an editorial “Warren and Sanders, Policy Mates” the pattern is overwhelming:

“They both would force these companies to get a new federal charter requiring them to consider ‘stakeholders’ rather than shareholders in their business decisions. They both want to reimpose the old Glass-Steagall fence between commercial banking and investment banking. ‘The business model of Wall Street is fraud,’ Mr. Sanders likes to say. Ms. Warren also thinks bankers are crooks: ‘Wall Street is looting the economy.’ They agree the U.S. Postal Service should become a bank that offers government checking accounts and would compete with private banks.

“On college as an entitlement, the two again see eye to eye. ‘It’s time to cancel student debt and make universal free college a reality,’ one says. The other reverses the order: ‘We are going to make public colleges and universities tuition free, and cancel all student debt.’ For the record, Ms. Warren’s plan is the first one.”

There are a scattered handful of traditional liberal Democrats in the House and Senate, but none have any chance of ever being a national candidate in the emerging Democratic-Socialist Party.

We are watching a historic moment in which a once-great American party is transformed into an anti-American engine of radical change. In 2020, every Democratic candidate will be faced with the challenge of defending a national party which is now the Democratic-Socialist Party.

It will be a wrenching, defining moment for the party of FDR and JFK as it is conquered by the party of AOC, Sanders, and Warren.

News of Note:

A new government proposal is to use AI to determine mental illness…

And use it as a justification to disarm you. 

Which sounds a hell of a lot like what the Soviets were doing during the ‘60s and ‘70s. 

As the KGB became more powerful, they sought more effective means to quash political dissidents and imprison anti-communist enemies. 

They figured, if they could deem someone as mentally ill, they were justified in kidnapping and “treating” them for their wrongthink. This empowered psychiatrists to diagnose and detain anyone who fit the description of a political dissident. 

They were thrown into “Psikhushkas” - a derogatory term for the psychoprisons where political dissidents were locked away to be tortured indefinitely. 

That may seem like a faraway reality for the United States…

But we’ve already seen psychiatrists in America label people who oppose authority and government as having a mental disorder - oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). 

And with the push for nationwide red flag gun laws…

You would be naive to think it couldn’t happen here. 

If you want to see all the plans laid out for HARPA, and how they may punish disobedient, “dangerous” gun owners like you in the future if their plans are put into action…
