In this latest blog I look at the strange political strategy of the Democratic Socialists of America, the countries largest socialist political organization. Which involves working inside the anti socialist corporate fascist war mongering American Democratic Party.
The DSA was founded in the early 1980, by Michael Harrington. It has its roots in the American Socialist Party, which stills exists today.
Harrington said that Democratic Socialists in America should work as a faction in the ‘left wing’ of the Democratic party. Despite the fact that the party is totally controlled by corporate finance.
The DSA endorsed the Presidential campaigns of both John Kerry and Barack Obama. Despite the fact that both candidates are both war mongers and supporters of corporate fascism.
Three DSA members won primary elections to be the Democratic Party candidates in the 2018 congress elections in America. Astonishingly won of the candidates Alexandria Ocasio Cortes issued a twitter feed praising the war monger John McCain just after his death. She stated’ McCain legacy represents unparalleled example of human decency and American service’. Try telling that to the half a million Iraqi,s killed by American and Western imperialism in the 2003 Iraq war.
In fact I think Cortes twitter gives the game away.The Democratic Socialists of America is a fake socialist organization. It supports free health care but does not appear to support nationalization. I suspect that the DSA has been heavily influenced by the American deep state. So as to draw Americans angry about the injustices of the country into the dead end of the American Democratic Party which is totally controlled by corporate finance.
What such Americans should be doing instead is forming a new progressive labour based party free from corporate control.
In conclusion if as I suspect such a new party is not formed by the time of the 2020 presidential election. Then American socialists and progressives should vote for the presidential candidate of either the Peace and freedom Party or the American Socialist Party.
Best wishes to all for the future. My next blog will be my 300th published blog surely something to celebrate.
