Democrat Socialism became popular thanks to Bernie Sanders’ run for the presidency in 2016.
Now, because of the likes of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, it is gaining more traction.
Check out what’s happening in Chicago…
From Daily Wire:
Five members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) found election success last Tuesday in Chicago and could join the city council in April.
Two candidates, Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa and Daniel La Spata, won aldermanic seats Tuesday night, according to the Chicago Sun Times. Three other candidates, Rosanna Rodriguez-Sanchez, Byron Sigcho-Lopez, and Andre Vazquez will proceed to runoffs to try and win their seats on the council.
“The oligarchs are shaking in their boots tonight,” Ramirez-Rosa said after winning re-election, according to the Times. “Our continued organizing and movement-building over the last four years is paying dividends. And it appears to be a total transformation of political power at City Hall from the bottom up.”
Voters were asked about the self-described Democrat Socialist, but things didn’t go Bernie’s way.
One man said, “I can’t stop laughing.”
From Daily Wire:
Voters laughed on Tuesday over socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) announcement that he is running for president, saying that he is a gift to the Republican Party.
Sanders, who announced his run on Tuesday, “immediately resorted to blasting out a series of personal insults at President Donald Trump” during his announcement yet was not “able to provide any evidence to back up his brutal description of Trump,” The Daily Wire reported.
“I can’t stop laughing … it’s a gift to the Republican Party and Trump,” one man said. “They’re so out of touch with reality, they’re selling kool-aid, they’ve been doing it on the campuses for years and now it’s spread out and they have this utopian idea of ‘everything is wonderful’ … people don’t get it, it doesn’t work.”
Florida voters react to Bernie Sanders running for president:
-“I can’t stop laughing…it’s a gift to the Republican Party”
-“Send in the clowns”
-“Bernie’s vision for America is destructive”
-“It’s almost laughable”
-“Bad for the Democrats, great for the Republicans”

Bernie calls for the rich to fork over their cash in order to be redistributed, yet forgets he’s a member of the 1%.
He’s also big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.
The list could go on for a while.
Sanders is a good Democrat. He says everything necessary to get the uninformed riled up.
He doesn’t need facts. Facts are irrelevant.
For example, speaking from a stage in South Carolina on MLK Day, Sanders said the unthinkable about President Trump.

Sanders: “It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.”
Based on what?
Sanders recently went after Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY).
Cheney, of course, is the daughter of former Vice President
Christian Bale Dick Cheney.
Liz wasn’t scared, though.
She fired back guns blazing.
Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, yesterday attacked "the fraud of socialism." Really? I wasn't aware that it was "socialism" that lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and got us into a horrific war that we should never have started.

Yes, @SenSanders, son of Eli Sanders, socialism is a fraud. It steals power from the people & gives it to the government, crushes human freedom & initiative & devastates economies (ask the Venezuelans). BTW – Your Dick Cheney history is as defective as your economic policy. https://t.co/8xjOVE3Tpu
