The Socialist Takeover Of The Democratic Party Has Begun

The growing Democratic civil war is headed west. The DNC chairmanship race might be ground zero for Bernie Sanders’ attempt to take over the Democratic Party, but they’ve also shown a desire to extend their reach to individual state parties. This morning Sanders front organization Our Revolution announced that they have the votes to take over the California Democratic Party:

“Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) turned out en masse at ordinarily sleepy party caucuses earlier this month, electing a slate of delegates who could be poised to take over the largest Democratic Party organization outside of Washington, D.C. As final vote totals trickled in, Sanders backers claimed to have elected more than 650 delegates out of 1,120 available seats chosen at this month’s caucuses.”

This victory for Sanders’ extremist supporters has them promising that it’s just the first step on the way to transforming the Democratic Party in Sanders’ socialist image:

“’One of the issues we’re looking to do is transform the party,’ said Shannon Jackson, executive director of Our Revolution, the organization that grew out of the Sanders’s presidential campaign. ‘This is the first step in that process.’”

Jackson also said that within a couple of years Sanders’ group hopes to have movements in place in all 50 states. According to The Hill, Sanders’ insurgent efforts are “reminiscent” of the disruptive efforts of Congressman Ron Paul:

“The bids to seize control of state Democratic Parties is reminiscent of similar moves by fans of former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), who engineered takeovers of state Republican Parties in Nevada and Arizona, among others, after Paul’s bid for president in 2012.”

The chaos that is sure to follow from extreme socialists running state Democratic parties will not be pretty for Democrats’ efforts to get back into power. No matter what happens Bernie Sanders and his supporters are ensuring that whoever wins the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, they will be forced to pay homage to Sanders’ absurd ideas.
