On Friday, New York gubernatorial candidate and politically radical former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon spoke at Netroots 2018. There, she laid forth her philosophy regarding the future of the Democratic Party:
This seems like rather foolish logic. It’s the equivalent of Republicans stating, “Hey, they’re calling us racists anyway, so we might as well support David Duke in Louisiana!” It’s immoral, it’s dumb, and it’s counterproductive.
But it’s also the direction the Democratic Party is moving. They’re embracing their democratic socialist future, worshipping at the altar of figures like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They’re banking on a reaction to President Trump to drive the mainstream Left into their arms. And it may work.
Or it may not. It’s just possible that the American people aren’t ready to embrace the Chavista socialism promoted by the new leading lights of the Democratic Party. And if that’s the case, the Democrats had better get ready for a second term of Trump.
