Democrats are not a socialist party. Unless you count all the Democrats who are openly socialist (see ANOTHER DEMOCRAT PROMISES TO DISMANTLE CAPITALISM IN AMERICA AND REPLACE IT WITH SOCIALISM and TEACHERS' UNIONS TEAM UP WITH DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS AND ISSUE THESE INSANE DEMANDS). Also, all of their socialist policies that they claim aren't socialist. But those are usually the same
Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, pushed back on being labeled the “most liberal” senator by Vice President Mike Pence during the debate in an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes. Correspondent Norah O’Donnell told Harris that she was rated the most liberal senator by non-partisan GovTrack, and asked if she would bring those progressive policies […]
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) told Axios in an interview that aired Monday that she expects a liberal turn if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected president, adding that she wants all Cabinet positions filled with progressives. Biden’s transition team has reportedly vetted a handful of Republicans for potential Cabinet positions. While this may reinforce Biden’s image as a unity candidate, it has fueled a backlash among the Democratic Party’s leftmost wing. “I would say all of the Cabinet positions should be filled by progressive Democrats,” Omar told Axios. “We know that the policies we advocate for are most popular with the American people,” she added. Asked why Biden is the nominee if he doesn’t support the most radical Democrat policies, Omar said it’s a question of there being a mismatch between policies people support and the leadership qualities they demand from a presidential candidate. “I guess sometimes there’s a disconnect in the person that you might believe should lead and the policies you that you might believe should be implemented,” she said, citing strong exit poll support for Medicare for All during the Democratic primaries, even in places where Biden, not Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), was leading. “And so that should signal to Joe Biden that these people trusted me to lead but these are the policies that they want me to lead on and, you know, act accordingly,” Omar said.

(Stephen Maturen/Getty Images) Biden ran as a moderate compared to some of his Democrat rivals in the primaries, like Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and has continued to cast himself as a centrist. During his first presidential debate against President Donald Trump, Biden made a point of rejecting the Green New Deal and instead touted his own clean energy plan, although a review of his campaign website references the controversial legislation as the underpinnings of his scheme. Omar said the Democratic Party’s progressive wing would fight to try and make sure Biden’s policies are not too moderate for their liking. “The president is only as successful as his collaboration is with Congress,” she said. “We will have a cohort of progressives that are very clear about their objectives for wanting the implementation of Medicare for All and a Green New Deal and raising the minimum wage and not allowing for fracking,” Omar said. Her remarks play into the view that however moderate of a candidate Biden may be, intra-party dynamics following a potential Biden win would pressure him to veer left. They also appear to reinforce the claim, expressed by Trump and his supporters, that Biden is a “Trojan horse for socialism.” “He is, he’s a Trojan horse,” Trump said in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, ahead of the Democratic National Convention in August. “He has no clue, but the people around him are tough, and they’re smart,” Trump added, presumably alluding to much the same “cohort of progressives” Omar referred to in her remarks to Axios. Vice President Mike Pence, at a rally in Boulder City, Nevada, in early October, said: “You know, when you look at their agenda it’s clear. I said this at Fort McHenry—Joe Biden would be nothing more than a Trojan horse for the radical left.” Pence framed the choice in November’s election as one between traditional American values and radically progressive ones. “It’s whether we’re going to chart a course based on our highest ideals of faith and family and freedom and patriotism and the American flag and the Constitution of the United States, or whether we’re going to abandon that path and allow the radical left and Joe Biden and the Democratic Party to take our nation somewhere it’s never been before,” Pence said.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) again vowed to push Joe Biden further to the left should he win the election and added Democrats need to retake the Senate to avoid the burden of having to govern in a bipartisan fashion. AOC, known as one of the more vociferous voices in the far-left element of the Democrat party, made the comments during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. In the segment, the ‘Squad’ leader dismissed bipartisanship as little more than “Republican manipulation.” She hinted that the 2020 election could be a “once-in-a-generation opportunity to have the White House, the Senate, and the House majorities Democratically-controlled.” “We have an obligation to the American people to show what a Democratic administration can actually accomplish,” claimed Ocasio-Cortez. She went on to suggest her party needs to demonstrate to the American people “that we can govern” and do so as “a memorable shift from just a flatline of this idea of bipartisanship.” AOC tells CNN that if Democrats take the Senate, the left can “shift” the country without worrying about being bipartisan. “If we elect folks like Jaime Harrison, protect seats like Gary Peters, and unseat Republicans like Joni Ernst…” pic.twitter.com/IKd7vQv2BD — Nathan Brand (@NathanBrandWA) October 25, 2020 Support Conservative Voices!

But then, was there any doubt that the fringe elements in the Democrat party plan a full-on takeover should they be voted in? This is, after all, the same group that forced Democrats into conducting the first partisan impeachment in the nation’s history. Also of little surprise, but noteworthy for voters, is that AOC has again telegraphed to the entire nation that she and her band of merry progressives plan on pushing Biden as far left as they possibly can. “Frankly, I think it would be a privilege and it would be a luxury for us to be talking about what we would lobby the next Democratic – and how we will push the next Democratic administration,” she said.

Absolutely,” she added. “And that has been a part of my role since I have been elected.” AOC on Biden’s mixed messages about a fracking ban: “It does not bother me … I have a very strong position on fracking … however, that is my view … It will be a privilege to lobby him should we win the White House, but we need to focus on winning the White House first.” pic.twitter.com/U9NxHXBC9g — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) October 25, 2020 RELATED: Biden Vows To Provide Pathway to Citizenship For 11 Million Illegals – Tells America ‘We Owe Them’ AOC Will Push Biden Left, Can’t Say She’ll Definitively Back Pelosi For Speaker Earlier this month, the Working Families Party and all four members of the ‘Squad’ unveiled an agenda designed to push Biden to the far-left should he win the presidency. Known as the “People’s Charter,” the plan seeks universal health care, re-allocation of resources away from policing, canceling student debt, and advancing the tenets behind the Green New Deal. AOC has previously expressed confidence that she can push Biden as far left as possible, implementing policies such as the Green New Deal which has a price tag in the trillions. [embedded content] In the interview with Tapper, Ocasio-Cortez also seemed to be gearing up for a fight with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. When asked if she could commit to supporting Pelosi as Speaker again, she hedged. “I believe that we have to see those races as they come, see what candidates are there. I am committed to making sure that we have the most progressive candidate there.” she replied. “But, if Speaker Pelosi is that most progressive candidate, then I will be supporting her.” Is AOC simply biding her time, ready for a takeover of the entire party should they sweep their way to victory?
We're supposed to believe that Joe Biden is a pragmatic centrist who's going to unite the country.
