In stunning but unsurprising news the California Democratic Party officially endorsed Kevin De Leon, the radical far left challenger to Dianne Feinstein for the California senatorial position.
I say this is unsurprising for a variety of reasons, first and foremost, after the 2016 presidential election, I had predicted that the democratic party would learn from it’s mistakes, stop dabbling in socialism, and take a more centrist approach. Boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong, instead of listening to common sense, the democratic party has gone full Communist. Kevin De Leon represents the far left wing of the party, and is a dire warning of what the younger generations of the DNC diehards will be voting into office in the coming years. Secondly, the millennial generation of DNC voters are so hysterical and full of hatred, that they would of course endorse someone as insane as Kevin De Leon. Why am I even surprised. The reality show that has become our political system keeps on getting whackier and whackier by the day.
Feinstein had originally called for no endorsements from the 360 person panel, with the intent of not creating inter party drama, what I don’t understand is, who the hell cares, both candidates running for senate in California are democrats anyways, and as everyone knows, once a democrat is in office, they don’t diverge from what the party demands of them, they are in a sense, like the Borg from star trek.
“Today’s vote is a clear-eyed rejection of politics as usual in Washington, D.C.,” de Leon said in a statement after the vote. “We have presented Californians with the first real alternative to the worn-out Washington playbook in a quarter-century.”
I think what Kevin is really saying is, he is is ‘rejecting’ the capitalism that had made america great in favor of socialism, which he will attempt to shove down the throat of every hardworking Californian. Also, what is this ‘alternative’ you are talking about Kevin, have you looked at your state lately, California is an absolute disaster, and it’s the policies your promoting that have ruined it. At times, I can’t tell if these politicians are being serious, or if they are really this stupid. I think it’s a little bit of both.
The endorsement is irrelevant though, as Feinstein will win in November, but, it is indicative of a major shift among the younger generations, who favor radical socialist democrats over older more established politicians who espouse more traditional party lines.
