DNC Turning into a (More of a) Leftist Cult

Like a star collapsing into a black hole, the DNC is collapsing from socialist extremism into worse socialist extremism.

Does the excitement over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mean that the DNC has reached the point of implosion. An ideological implosion happens when a group becomes so extremist that it repels the more normal members (relatively speaking). Then, because all the people who remain are extremist, the group drifts into more severe extremism.

The Hill reports, “DNC chair: Ocasio-Cortez represents the ‘future of our party.’

“I have three kids. Two of them are daughters — one just graduated college, one who is in college. And they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because she really — she represents the future of our party,” Perez said on “The Bill Press Show.”

“While Sanders still draws a crowd, his endorsements don’t carry as much weight as left-leaning voters may hope,” wrote the New Republic’s Sarah Jones. “…Sanders and his supporters have helped push the Democrats to the left, but the party has yet to truly embrace its left flank.”

The self-described “democratic socialist” doesn’t fully embrace his ideology because he stops short of demanding the “nationalization of private industries,” Jones writes.

As one would expect amid such insanity, the Democrats are losing their influence. Breitbart reports, “Reuters Poll: Young White Americans Flee Democrat Party in Droves Since Trump’s Election.

Young white Americans, in 2016, favored Democrats over Republicans in 2016 by a 47 to 33 percent margin. Since Trump’s election — and his booming economy which has secured high-paying jobs and record job opportunities — young white Americans’ favoritism for Democrats has disappeared.

Today, 39 percent of young white Americans say they favor Republicans, while another 39 percent of young white Americans say they favor Democrats.

Overall, the poll revealed that Democrats are losing young Americans in general. For example, before Trump’s election, 55 percent […] said they favored Democrats over Republicans. Today, that margin is down to only 46 percent […].
