Socialists Win in Pennsylvania Democrat Primaries

Socialists seem to be doing well with Democrats.

Published

Pennsylvania voted on Tuesday to decide who will face off in the November general election. In the state that went to Trump in 2016, socialists had a great day.

Two Democratic Socialists of America members won the nominations for their respective state house districts as Democrats. Sara Innamorato and Summer Lee beat back their incumbent opponents, Dom and Paul Costa, who are cousins.

The two Costa’s have both spent many years in the Pennsyvania State House, with Dom being election in 2009, and Paul being election ten years prior in 1999. This upset shows the increased support for socialist policies in the Democratic party.

Both of the defeated candidates had concerns months earlier of their opponents being able to pull off a win. Dom Costa made waves over his strategy of courting Republican voters to his campaign. This strategy was clearly a desperate attempt to bring in more moderate Republicans to help him  overcome the increasingly far-left views of modern Democrats. His strategy didn’t seem to work, but his cousin Paul ran a more traditional Democrat campaign and still lost, so who knows.

The popularity of socialist ideas among Democrats can be tied to the Presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders, who publicly called himself a Democratic Socialist. Sanders likely would have won the Democratic nomination if it weren’t for high-level party officials like Debbie Wasserman Schultz working against his campaign.

But socialists weren’t the only group that brought home wins in Pennsylvania. Trump supporters saw a victory in the nomination of pro-Trump diehard Lou Barletta to face Democrat Senator Bob Casey in November. Barletta looks to have a great chance facing his Democrat opponent in a state that Trump won in 2016.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Published

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
