Almost a Third of Democratic Socialists of America Members Make More than $100k a Year

And these people represent the working class?

Internal survey membership data gauged by the Democratic Socialists of America, a leftist organizing group that supported Bernie Sanders for President, reveals that almost a third of the organization’s members make more than $100,000 a year.

The group’s 2017 membership survey response, cited by leftist commentator Brianna Last, reveals that 29% of the group’s members describe their income as being above $100k. The group’s membership is overwhelmingly coastal and metropolitan, and only 6% of DSA members are union members- well below the national figure of 10% union membership among the American public.

Annual wage and earning data for the general American public reveals a far lower figure- with just over 9% of Americans making more than $100k.

The group appears broadly unrepresentative of the American working class, a contradiction for any socialist organizing group that identifies its target demographic as working people. DSA conferences have proven to be rife with politically correct and neoliberal gender and identity politics, yet another defining political characteristic of the political and media elite.

The DSA’s membership appears to be greatly defined by wealthy, college-educated millennials, who have a tenuous connection to working Americans such as service and blue-collar workers.

The timeless stereotype of a ‘champaign socialist-‘ one who merely dislikes the rich, while largely disregarding the lifestyles and cultures of the working class they claim to represent- seems to be more than appropriate.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol

Guilt by association.

Published

Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.

Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.

Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.

Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
