Granted, this isn’t exactly a new revelation, but 100 House Dems dropped their masks and voted Thursday against a Republican resolution condemning the horrors of socialism. Here’s the resolution:
“Socialist ideology necessitates a concentration of power that has time and time again collapsed into Communist regimes, totalitarian rule, and brutal dictatorships. Many of the greatest crimes in history were committed by socialist ideologues” — noting Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un, Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez, and Nicolás Maduro. The resolution catalogs hideous atrocities and murders, millions of them, committed under socialists.
“Congress denounces socialism in all its forms, and opposes the implementation of socialist policies in the United States of America,” the resolution also reads.
So people like Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and many many more House Dems, 100 of them, almost a majority, refused to condemn Stalin, who butchered tens of millions, Mao, who killed more than Stalin, and Pol Pot, of Killing Fields infamy. 100 House Democrats endorsed communist brutality and mass murder. 86 voted against the Republican measure, 14 did not vote for it but voted present.
Republican sponsor Rep. María Elvira Salazar (R-Fla.) said the resolution “would make a bold statement that the People’s House unequivocally denounces this cruel and unjust ideology. It would also ensure the United States commits to never begin or normalize the implementation of socialist policies that inevitably lead to economic ruin and political authoritarianism.” But you see, authoritarian socialism is what Dems are all about.
The 109 House Dems who didn’t vote for the thing? Window dressing. Even Dems who voted for it denounced it on the House floor as an attack on Social Security, etc. Which is interesting, as it seems they’re admitting that such programs are socialist. Gee, what a day of wonders. 100 Dems out themselves as protectors of socialist murderers and furthermore tell America that programs they have championed for almost a century are socialist. What next, several of them admitting they are active agents for Chinese Intelligence? If only they had that much commitment to the truth.
Now it’s true that the Republican measure was only a PR stunt. It was a trap laid and 100 Dems walked right into it. McCarthy and his team will use this Dem hard left extremism for future talking points. It’s predominately an attack message move because, as we said earlier, you’d have to live under a political rock not to know the Democrat Party is under the control of socialists.
Those Dems know full well Republicans will use this vote against them and their party in 2024 and it will hurt. But their loyalty to authoritarian socialism and communist dictators is so intense, so deep, so timeless, that they don’t care. Authoritarian socialism is their number one priority. All else be damned.
