Democratic Socialists of America er en egen gruppe som får operere innenfor Demokratene. De er dedikerte sosialister. En av dem, Kirsten Gonzales, vant primærvalget til senatsplass i delstatsforsamlingen i New York State tirsdag. De legger ikke skjul på sine mål: USA skal bli sosialistisk, dvs som Venezuela der Gonzales kommer fra.
Gonzales ble støttet av Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. De radikale er på fremmarsj. Dårligere tider vil gi dem vind i seilene.
Gonzales har den samme Fidel Castro-gløden som AOC.
A Democratic New York state Senate candidate backed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., celebrated her primary election victory by declaring «socialism wins.»
Kristen Gonzalez, a tech worker whose campaign for the New York state Senate was backed by the Democratic Socialists of America and left-wing lawmakers including Ocasio-Cortez, made the declaration to cheering supporters on Tuesday after winning her primary election.
«I know we’re saving the speeches for a little later, but today we really proved that socialism wins!» Gonzalez said as her supporters cheered.

XI VAN FLEET: I just want to say it’s so ironic. 36 years ago, I run away from socialism when I left China to come to this great country for freedom. Today, so many Americans [are] abandoning freedom and arriving into socialism. They have no idea what socialism is about. I lived under Mao’s socialism. When the government controls everything and makes all the decisions big and small and decide how much grain, meat [and] cooking oil I could have. What I should learn in school, where I should live, and what job I should have and how I should think. In the socialist society I lived under, there was no choices. There is no freedom. And that’s what people do not know. Socialism becomes such a diluted word and it’s intentional. I can tell you, China is a socialist country. Cuba is a socialist country and so is North Korea. They are a socialist country run by communist parties. And what’s the difference? What’s the difference between socialism and communism? Not much. Socialism is the initial stage of communism, according to Karl Marx.
Det er som om 100 års erfaring med sosialisme er glemt. En ny generasjon vil gjøre samme feil om igjen.
