Ever stop to wonder what happened to the Democratic Party of John Kennedy?

I’ll tell you, it no longer exists. Since 2008 the Democratic Party has moved further and further to the left to the point of extremism. Hollywood makes up the Democratic Party’s board of directors and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is their CEO.

Today, the party of Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Socialists, are after everything in this world you hold dear. Under this extremism it’s getting harder and harder to even recognize America. The left’s view of America is that only their opinion and view of America are truth; other opinions and views are a lie and don’t matter.

Hillary Clinton made it perfectly clear during the 2016 campaign that Trump supporters are nothing more than a basket of deplorables. Barack Obama said pretty much the same thing during his 2008 campaign, when he referred to working-class voters affected by job losses as people who “get bitter ... cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them.”

And just the other day on his show “Real Time” extreme lefty Bill Maher derided Middle Americans in red states as envious of their blue-state counterparts by commenting, “We have a problem in America called spatial geographic inequality which means the most affluent and educated people are clustered in just a few cities.” He went on to say, “We have orchestras and theater districts and world-class shopping. We have Chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee.”

Maher continued by saying, “The blue parts of America are having a big prosperity party while the big sea of red feels like their invitation got lost in the mail — and they still use the mail.” Maher explained why conservatives are so upset by saying, “The fly-over states have become the passed-over states, that’s why red state voters are so (angry). They don’t hate us, they want to be us.”

Absolutely not Bill! The last thing I want to emulate are people whose entire life is an act, people pretending to be people they’re not. There was a time when no one, especially the president of the United States, would dare say anything like this in public. But under the former president and Ocasio-Cortez, the left has been emboldened. What you’re witnessing today is the real Democratic Party, also known as the Democratic Socialist party.
