Harlan Hill: DNC Convention in Milwaukee Proves Democrats are Shifting Further to the Left

The Democrats’ decision to host their 2020 national convention in Milwaukee proves that they’re all-in for their neo-socialist platform.

If the Democratic National Committee (DNC) cared about flipping Florida or appealing to moderate voters, it could have chosen to host the convention in Miami, which also vied to be the host city for the Democratic National Convention in 2020 — a much more populous city in a state that historically produces even closer electoral margins than Wisconsin, and has nearly three times as many electoral votes. Miami, though, apparently doesn’t reflect the Democratic Party’s newfound socialist “values” quite the way Milwaukee does.

“This choice is a statement of our values, and I’m thrilled Milwaukee will host the 2020 Democratic National Convention,” said DNC chairman Tom Perez. “The Democratic Party is the party of working people, and Milwaukee is a city of working people.”

If holding the convention in Milwaukee is truly “a statement of [Democrat Party] values,” then America should know exactly what to expect from the Democrats in 2020.

Milwaukee is famously the only American city to ever elect a socialist mayor three times — Frank Zeidler, a member of the Socialist Party of America, even served as the city’s mayor during the start of the Cold War before leaving office in 1960.

Furthermore, Milwaukee has been dominated by liberal politicians for well over a century, giving the Democrats ample opportunity to turn the city into a real socialist paradise for American workers.

That utopia hasn’t materialized, though, judging from a 2018 index compiled by 24/7 Wall Street, which concluded that Milwaukee was the 10th worst city in America based on quality of life.

“More than one in every four Milwaukee residents live in poverty, more than double the 11.8 percent state poverty rate,” the report noted, adding that “There were 1,546 violent crimes for every 100,000 Milwaukee residents, more than five times the statewide violent crime rate of 306 per 100,000.”

In other words, Milwaukee isn’t much different from Detroit, another Midwestern city that was run into the ground by decades of inept Democrat governance.

Of course, the Democrats won’t directly admit that their choice of Milwaukee is meant to underscore their embrace of socialism, because right now they’re doing everything they can to convince the American people that advocating for socialist policies doesn’t make them socialists.

Recently, leading Democrats have taken pains to reject the “socialist” label, despite their embrace of socialist policies such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal that have respectively been championed by Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, both of whom are avowed democratic-socialists.

According to The Hill, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, former Rep. John Delaney, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke have all denied being socialists while claiming support for capitalism in America. Their rhetoric, however, is nothing but a deceptive tactic designed to make their obsession with socialist policies less objectionable to the general public.

Make no mistake about it, the selection of Milwaukee for the Democratic National Convention in 2020 is yet another sign that the Democrats have abandoned centrist and commonsense voters in places like Miami and instead have fully embraced both in symbol and substance the full tenets of socialism.

In a sense, Milwaukee is an ideal choice for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. For a few days, at least, Democrats will have a “safe space” where they can espouse their radical ideas with a receptive audience in their convention’s host city.

  2. Dear America;
    Politics have been shifting further to the left for quite a while. Democrats are morphing into Pre-Islamic Terrorists. Some Republicans are morphing into Democrats who want to lie, commit crimes, etc. John McCain was one of those RINOs (Republican In Name Only).
    I only hope that John’s widow, and daughter, Meghan, will see this letter. Maybe some day they will be able to admit that Conservatives are doing what is best for America, and her liberties. Freedom of speech and the Constitutional freedoms are precious to Americans. Other Nations are the ways of death, because they do not go along with our foundations of life, liberty and happiness.

    JOHN McCAIN – THE MOST FLAWED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN HISTORY ( Maybe Hillary was worse) Thursday, February 28, 2008 9:05 AM Roland C. Eyears
    It is now clear that what is left of the Republicon Party, after being fatally poisoned by the Bush administration, intents to commit suicide by nominating Senator John McCain (R-Hanoi) for the presidency. Where do I start? THE EARLY YEARS McCain spent his boyhood in exclusive boarding schools where staffers were paid to put up with his tirades. We all did some immature things before we matured. But with McCain, the tirades continue today.
    Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is scant chance he would have been admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy. Given his behavior patterns and academics, had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is little doubt he would have been thrown out. Instead, in 1958 he managed to graduate 894 out of 899. Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, he is no chance he would have been accepted into the prestigious naval flight training program over far better qualified officers. On his way to becoming a North Vietnamese ace, the aviator lost 3 expensive aircraft on routine, non-combat flights. Little was made of all that, because he was, you know, the son and grandson of admirals.
    McCain’s most horrendous loss occurred in 1967 on the USS Forrestal. Well, not horrendous for him. The starter motor switch on the A4E Skyhawk allowed fuel to pool in the engine. When the aircraft was “wet-started,” an impressive flame would shoot from the tail. It was one of the ways young hot-shots got their jollies. Investigators and survivors took the position that McCain deliberately wet-started to harass the F4 pilot directly behind him. The cook off launched an M34 Zuni rocket that tore through the Skyhawk’s fuel tank, released a thousand pound bomb, and ignited a fire that killed the pilot plus 167 men. Before the tally of dead and dying was complete, the son and grandson of admirals had been transferred to the USS Oriskany.
    As a rising naval officer, McCain was surrounded by rumors of numerous adulterous affairs, such as used to be called “conduct unbecoming an officer.” Author and biographer Robert Timberg has detailed several of McCain’s sexual relationships with subordinates when serving as a Squadron Leader and an Executive Officer. I think we all know such behavior is a clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, in other words, a crime.
    When McCain’s application to the National War College was rejected, according to noted author and researcher Joel Skousen, he whined to daddy who pulled strings with the Secretary of the Navy.

    You can also google the true information about how McCain received his pardon from Richard Nixon. “Fact Checks”, and Snopes will say it’s all a lie. but they are paid by liberal media to lie for their favorite people.
    “McCain was convicted of treason and sentenced to death by firing squad until he was pardoned by Nixon,” Palkowski wrote with authority. “As a POW, McCain spilled his guts about everything and helped the NVA by telling them the flight patterns of U.S. Fighters which led to a 64% increase in fighters being shot down.” https://popularmilitary.com/senator-mccains-time-pow-public-scrutiny-truth/
