The Democrat Party swings way to the left, and is winning as it does [Video]

Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham shared a consistent observation about the Democrat Party in the United States. That observation is that the party is succeeding when its candidates are very hard-left, social Democrat a-la George Soros and Bernie Sanders types.

New York’s Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Florida’s Andrew Gillum, Nebraska’s Kara Eastman, Kerri Evelyn Harris of Delaware, and as of Tuesday night, Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley, all are extreme left-wing progressives who are winning primary races in their respective areas, upsetting the “establishment” Democrats seeking election to the same gubernatorial or representative positions. Where Donald Trump won by being unapologetically conservative, these candidates make the current crop of liberals look like Ronald Reagan by comparison.

This is of significant concern. While the more “Establishment” Democrats have gone on record at times saying that attempting impeachment of President Trump is bad politics, the super progressives like the Democrat candidate for the Governor’s office in Florida, Andrew Gillum, and Tom Steyer, are strongly in favor of this move, citing their “sources” at CNN and the New York Times and Washington Post, who have graciously provided about two years’ worth of narrative to support their claims that the President stands guilty of the “high crimes and misdemeanors” that require impeachment proceedings to take place.

It doesn’t matter that none of this is actually true.

The fact that CNN, the Times, the Post and many other publications have been in lockstep with their attacks, and the vast outnumbering of conservative cable network Fox News deepens the rhetorical divide. In a video from RT America, this divide was seen as part of the cause of CNN’s declining ratings, but another effect is to deepen the rhetorical divide between liberal and conservative viewpoints and drive a wall between potential voters, making it very difficult, or nearly impossible to hold civilized, rational political discourse.

This is dangerous. To not agree on a viewpoint is no disaster. But to be unable to even hear the opposing side without resorting to violence, whether it be verbal or physical – this shows an electorate “mob” that is not the required element for our Representative Republic.

The Trotskyite Khazar fake-jew takeover of the USA is all done, except for the ink drying.

This author has no clue what right and left mean. He may remember what it used to mean, when he was in short trousers. These words, as well as the words “liberal” and “progressive” have been used and abused by the manipulators to such an extent that they have lost all meaning.

Another exhibition of ignorance and downright mental imbalance by the resident extreme right-winger masquerading as a journo. George Soros or AOC are now extreme leftists? Trust Hanisch to come up with such total BS.

Soros and Steyer think they’ll be appointed to the new Politburo by the “High Party Collective” when their pals in the Communist International finally prevail.

Soros, proto Nazi, ardent fascist is “far-left”? On which planet? That scumbag sold out Jews to the Nazis for a share of the robbery. Someone needs a political dictionary. Even “socialist” Sanders is right-wing capitalist with a touch a humanity. America is Disneyland in Hell.

Looks like Anatoliy Golitsyn and James Jesus Angleton were right all along! The political paradigm of the West has been corrupted by International Communist sedition. Poor Joe McCarthy! He was telling the Truth all along! Well, it’s “wake-up” time America!

Slightly off topic, but, isn’t Linsey Graham more loyal to the DNC then his own party? Watch him not knowing where to turn, when he realises he has been caught embracing Huma Abedine. Not even Kissinger can protect him. Interesting, how Kissinger is being ignored.

Going no further than than the headlines & images… where are the ‘leftists’??? A bunch of neoliberal uber Capitalists is what you’re talking about. Merely slinging words about like throwing turds at walls to see what sticks doesn’t qualify as ‘journalism’; only propaganda. And bad propaganda at that! Where are the gown-ups like Mercouris & Garrie who used to post here? Likely fled in embarrassment.

We can all agree that open borders for any country will be death of that country.
By definition, any given territory needs to have a regulated border in order to be defined as a country.

I’m obviously watching/listening to the wrong ‘extreme progressives’
It’s the establishment progressives who appear all fired up over Donald Trump, who obsess and push agendas that are basically irrelevant and immaterial to the vast bulk of Americans and the rest of humanity.
Genuine thinking progressives and genuine thinking conservatives often appear to have much more in common than the establishment of both left and right want to admit and who are therefore desperate to keep them apart.

The desperation of the Anglo-Zionist and Soros funded deep state to remain in power has led to its last play, open borders in order to attain new voters that they hope will keep them in power, as well as a low wage workforce to help maintain the profit margins, that they are used to.

To name Soros and Sanders/ Occasio Cortez in one category is a grave insult for the latter 2. And they are not ´radical left´, but just left of center, real social democrats.

CNN should be made to show balanced reporting or be kicked off the air. Seeing Wolf Blitzer conversing with trained seals who echo Blitzer”s diatribes is not news. On those rare events when thay have an independent guesr, he or she are quickly ignored as the Blitzer Choir all continue to shout the full course of BS.

Relax…there’s nothing “far left” about anyone in the Democratic Party. Even middle-of-the-road progressives have a hard time getting anywhere in that party. Ocasio-Cortez is a fake Democratic Socialist, a party which itself is just a reformist organization. No, there won’t be any revolutions in America any time soon.
