2, 3, or other: folks like Ocasio-Cortez will attempt a maneuver in a “socialist” direction in order to keep rank and file voters coming back to the Democratic Party and avoiding class-struggle politics. This maneuver will be resisted by the right of the party, since it will imperil the party’s ability to fundraise from business interests and win votes outside major cities. It could end up splitting the party with either faction retaining the current name. But it will almost certainly not result in the creation of a party that is a labor party, much less one that is socialist in more than name.

The Democratic Party has been socialist.

Is it coming out of the closet.

I think that is more than obvious.

The Party ran a self avowed socialist Candidate for POTUS in 2015 and now we have the election of Ocasio-Cortez.

Our extremist friends may deny the obvious, but in the real world it is what it is.

An avowed socialist came in "second" in the Dem primary in 2016. They've been socialist for quite some time.

Remember, before Hillary Clinton decided she wanted a war with Russia, the Soviet Union was what the left aspired America to be.
Now they are coming out of the closet with it.

The real story: the working class is and has been instinctively socialist for decades. The capitalist Democratic Party is pretending to go along with them in order to retain their base and keep them from forming their own labor party.
