It’s an appealing version of logic. Some on the right are hoping, wishing, and possibly even praying that more Democrats dismiss their facade of moderation and fully embrace the socialist agenda. Their thinking is this: it’s easier to beat a socialist than an establishment Democrat.
Today, this is true. A full-blown “Democratic Socialist,” as they’ve been calling themselves lately, is less likely to beat a mainstream or even conservative Republican in a general election. A strong majority of Americans do not like the notion of socialism, so candidates in the left-of-Bernie-Sanders mold are simply too dangerous for moderate Democrats or independents to embrace.
This was demonstrated yesterday:
Tuesday night’s largely Midwest primaries produced a near-shutout for the anti-establishment left. Ocasio-Cortez partnered with Bernie Sanders to make a series of splashy endorsements that, in the end, failed to clinch victories. And two leftist upstarts hoping to emulate Ocasio-Cortez, and defeat longtime Democratic incumbents, fell far short.
The most glaring defeat came in Michigan’s gubernatorial primary. This is the state where Sanders defied the polls and edged out Hillary Clinton, raising hopes that he had a magic touch in the Rust Belt. Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez tried to catapult the young and brash newcomer Abdul El-Sayed, who trailed in polls, endorsements and money to former state Senate Democratic leader Gretchen Whitmer. They could only nudge him up to second place, with 30 percent of the vote.
That’s today. Tomorrow may be a different story. In fact, it almost certainly will be.
The trends are clear. New voters and those on the verge of voting age hold socialism in high regard and the numbers are growing. This is the generation that has always had the internet, has never known the Cold War, and can barely remember 9/11. They are the brilliant yet delicate generation that has been bombarded with indoctrinating leftist messages, sheltered from the real world by being immersed in the virtual world for most of their lives.
They have no reason to believe socialism is bad because they have embraced the idea that Americans must be protected from themselves. They’re the generation that grew up through gender uncertainties, financial roller coaster rides, and a notion that the United States is the world’s bad guy. Their celebrity role models no longer pretend to be apolitical or unbiased. Most importantly, they’ve had peer-to-peer connections that have allowed idiotic leftist propaganda to spread like the plague through their ranks.
They are intellectually superior in their own minds yet oblivious to the vast manipulations they suffer through daily.
With this knowledge in hand, it’s imperative that conservatives and federalists do not outsmart themselves into allowing the popularity of socialism to grow. Short-term gains today will be meaningless when the Democrats start winning again. And they will whether they’re openly socialist, closet socialist, or moderates. That’s the ebb and flow of a two-party system. Nobody holds power for long regardless of how insane one side or the other may be at any given time.
Be careful what you wish for, conservatives. As crazy as it might seem today, there’s a good chance that this young generation or the next will embrace the flawed ideas of socialism enough that we may all get stuck living them. Stay true and fight socialism to the end.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
