Most of the Democrat Party’s candidates for all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and the one-third of the Senate that’s in play are supporters of the anti-Trump “resistance.” A growing number of those candidates favor policies that are in sync with far-left radical groups such as the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist membership organization in the United States.
In Florida, the Democratic candidate for governor, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has declined to say if he is a socialist. As an editorial in National Review cautioned, however, that Gillum “is campaigning as a member of the Sanders/Ocasio-Cortez wing of the party: He wants to abolish ICE, raise the minimum wage to $15, pass single-payer health care, and increase taxes across the board.”
A dirty little secret about the socialist left, which now includes many Democrats, is their frequent embrace of anti-Semitism. As Chris Pandolfo wrote in the Conservative Review last September:
“As insurgent hard-left socialists become the face and the ‘future‘ of the Democratic Party, their connections to anti-Semitic organizations and attitudes are becoming more apparent.” Gillum, for example, “has aligned himself with several prominent anti-Semitic organizations known for promoting boycotts of Jewish goods and individuals,” according to Adam Kredo of the Washington Free Beacon.
Floridians are not Socialists .. and are not anti-Semitic
