Maybe America's not ready for the leap into openly socialist candidates after all.
Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez is expanding her socialist rhetoric.
She says the upper middle class no longer exists.
She says middle class soccer moms driving middle class don't represent America anymore.
Ocasio-Cortez strikes me as an Obama without the decades of grooming, without the restraint to cloak ideology, or express it in ways that seem mainstream. She opens her mouth, and radical socialism gushes out.
It's not just the rich that these Democratic Socialists want to subjugate, it's also the bourgeoisie, as in middle class folk with conventional values.
That's how Lenin rolled too when he led Communist revolutionaries in taking over Russia.
Middle class folk best realize this new socialism is the same as old socialism.
Marxism isn't a friend of the middle class.
