WASHINGTON, D.C. — The “new” Democratic Party embodied by the likes of U.S. Reps. Alexandria Oscasio Cortez and Shariah-practicing Muslim Ilhan Omar is visibly becoming the “new normal” in American politics, and that trend is unlikely to reverse, according to a new poll.
The poll in question finds Millennials overwhelmingly support socialism.
Asked if they agreed with the statement: “Prefer living in a socialist country,” 49.6 percent of Millennials and members of Generation Z, said they agreed according to the survey. That differed from the 37.2 percent of the total adult group surveyed. Poll was conducted by Harris and then given exclusively to Axios.
Pew Research Center defines anyone born between 1981 and 1996 as a “Millennial” and those born after 1997 as “Generation Z.”
Another study from the last two years found a majority of Millennials also did not know about the Holocaust. Put the two polls together, and a freightening recipe for the repeat of history is suddenly plausible.
In its original report, the Smithsonian stated:
A substantial number of the survey’s respondents were unaware of basic facts about the Holocaust. Forty-one percent did not know what Auschwitz was. Nearly one-third of respondents (31 percent) believed that less than 2 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust; the actual number is closer to 6 million. Only 37 percent of people were able to identify Poland as a country where the Holocaust occurred, even though at least 3 million Jewish citizens of Poland were murdered during WWII.
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” goes an old adage. And the left is historically the master at betraying American sovereignty in order to manipulate elections, or policy at home.
Oscasio-Cortez called Omar “one of the most effective voices right now,” reported the New York Post on Mar. 10.
That “voice” is guilty of inciting violence and is possibly not even allowed to serve according to our own oath of office and bans on religious tests.
“Rep. Omar, a survivor of war, is one of the most effective voices right now at cutting through the authoritarian foreign policy tendencies of this administration,” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez. So, now socialists are comfortable admitting that power can be authoritarian? When is it “proletarian” and when is it “authoritarian”?
“Trump and Elliott Abrams cannot be trusted to tell the truth about what’s happening in Venezuela,” Omar tweeted, along with a link to a New York Times story questioning the circumstances behind an alleged attack on a Venezuelan relief convoy.
“We must continue to question the narratives they provide and promote dialogue instead of intervention,” Omar added.
In response, Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “She nails it here. You can see why she gets targeted.”
All the canned sentiment reminds me of the movie “Casablanca,” the final scene. “Louie, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship,” Humphrey Bogart said to Claude Reins.
