Remember when the media’s favorite way to mock conservatives was to depict us as rightwing kooks who thought the Democrats were a bunch of radical socialists? Well, the entire staff of the Nevada Democratic Party just resigned after candidates from the Democratic Socialists of America swept all five party leadership positions in the last election.
The new chair of the state party is Democratic socialist Judith Whitmer, who was already chair of the Clark County Democratic Party. She said, “What they just didn’t expect is that we got better and better at organizing and out-organizing them at every turn.” But the establishment Democrats did anticipate the socialist takeover enough to move $450,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s account. Good idea: there’s nothing socialists love more than confiscating other people’s money.
Let this be a cautionary tale not only for moderate Democrats who will vote for anyone with a (D) after their name without doing their due diligence, but also for Republicans, who had better get really organized themselves. More and more in the future, you will be facing elections against well-organized and well-funded opponents who may have a (D) after their names, but who should have an (S) there. Defeating them is no longer just a win for one party, but essential to preserving America.
