There are No Socialists in Our Government . . .

. . . what a silly idea!


The list is of the Progressive Caucus, which isn’t affiliated with any socialist organization. Spun-up half-truth from WND.

There’s about a dime’s worth of difference between a modern “Progressive” and your run-of-the-mill socialist, but that’s not the same thing as being a proud card-carrying member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Chris Byrne is right when he said:

“Now, once again, let me state an important political principle.

“When you use an argument, or cite a “fact” that you haven’t done the research on, you make yourself look like and idiot, and you hurt your own side.

“When you make a provably false statement, you make yourself look like an idiot, and you hurt your own side.

“When you cite a known crackpot, you make yourself look like an idiot, and you hurt your own side.

“When you use a well known discredited or provably false argument, you make yourself look like an idiot and you hurt your own side.”

I had planned to do more research on this before I hit “Post,” but I didn’t. Mea culpa.

Get that? That’s 70 out of 435 members of Congress willing to be identified as members of the Socialist Progressive Caucus, including Maxine “We’re Gonna Socialize You” Waters. Almost half of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are self-identified members.

These are people who swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, yet in order to be Socialists, they must subvert that very document. The two philosophies ARE NOT COMPATIBLE.

But we’re constantly assured that there’s nothing to be worried about! The specter of socialism is merely a hobgoblin of The Cult™ created just to frighten the kiddies! (Dime’s worth of difference.)

Pitchforks and torches and rope, oh my!
