Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York represents one the largest socialist (communist) organizations in the United States. And while she is not the only Democrat in Congress that embraces the doctrines of this group, she seems to have become the face of the movement.
Let’s be clear about one thing – the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is not a political party – it is an ideology that advocates for an egalitarian redistribution of wealth and power in America. While pushed by the drive-by media as a “new” movement, it is nothing but warmed over communism.
DSA become prominent during the 2016 election cycle, when Bernie Sander’s presidential campaign attracted thousands of young Americans indoctrinated by Marxist professors, many of whom actually believed they were working for a better America. These indoctrinated souls had no idea they had become part of the international communist movement.
Founded in 1982 from a merger of the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee and the New American Movement, many of DSA’s founding members came from anti-Vietnam war protestors and the Maoist leaning Students for a Democratic Society, both of which were associated with the Communist Party USA.
DSA doctrines relies heavily on the ideas of the late Italian Communist Party theoretician Antonio Gramsci whose vision was to infiltrate communist into all areas of society. To achieve his goals, the Communist Party USA silently infiltrated our churches, journalism, entertainment, labor unions, political parties, and civil organizations. Thousands of “community organizers” that include Michael Moore, and Linda Sarsour, an Islamic anti-Semitic, (and possible terrorist) were trained through the DSA aligned Midwest Academy in Chicago.
Co-founded in the 1970s by Paul Booth, a founder of Students for a Democratic Society and his wife Heather, an extremist and dedicated disciple of Saul Alinsky, the Midwest Academy received its startup funding from the Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which our former president, Obama, served as a paid director, alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization. Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.
Since its inception DSA members have taken on prominent roles in churches and Theological Seminaries throughout the US pushing communist propaganda instead of the true Word of God. The movement for single payer (government controlled health care) is and continues to be a DSA operation. In addition, academia has been overrun with Marxist professors who are grooming the next generation of radicals in cooperation with the Young Democratic Socialists of America with chapters on university campuses and high schools all over the country.
The House Progressive Caucus, aka the Congressional Progressive Caucus joined forces with DSA in the early 1990s. At nearly 80 members strong, it is the largest and most influential caucus in the House.
Many DSA members tout “democracy” while supporting totalitarianism in the form of Antifa. Many members were active protestors alongside Antifa and other communist front groups during the infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
And you better believe that when they say they want to end capitalism, they mean it. Private enterprise is the Marxists’ worst enemy. Pressuring lawmakers to implement policies favorable to the revolution is the ongoing goal of many Marxist organizations, and DSA is dedicated to several policies that they believe would further that goal, policies that include eliminating ICE, and the Department of Homeland Security.
During their annual convention in August 2017, DSA dropped its longstanding affiliation to the Socialist International (SI), the more-than-a-century-old alliance of socialist and social democratic parties—because they were too moderate for today’s DSA members. An article published in November of that year in the Democratic Left let members know that “DSA Deputy Director David Duhalde” spoke on two European United Left/Nordic Green Left panels at the EU Parliament attempting to build global party ties for a Post-Socialist International DSA. The European United Left/Nordic Green Left, by the way, is a caucus of communist, Marxist, and Green parties in the European Parliament.
When communists run for public office in America as openly communist, they are lucky to break 100 votes. Yet when they run covertly as Democrats, they can win seats on school boards, county commissions, and even in Congress. DSA is now 48,000 members strong with local membership in every state.
It is important to understand the goals DSA envisions for the US. According to Joe Cernelli, a founding member of the West Virginia DSA chapter, the group “doesn’t just want to improve capitalism, we will ultimately want to get rid of it.”
Like most left wing communist organizations, DSA uses imprecise and vague language of their vision of utopia to pacify the peasants because ultimately they have no real vision aside from vague platitudes. But, ultimately, the goal of any socialist movement is Marxism through the gradual erosion of the very fabric of America’s freedoms.
