Apparently, “socialism” means something different depending on your race.
After Democrats failed to obtain the Blue Wave they assumed they would win based on their belief the country hated President Donald Trump as much as they did, the party began playing the blame game. A further lurch toward socialism – and many prominent members’ support thereof – as well as the “defund the police” movement, seemed to be at the top of the list of things to blame.
Last week, Democrats participated in another conference call to discuss what went wrong, with Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) calling the party’s Latino outreach into question and Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL), who lost her seat, decrying the party’s connection to socialism.
Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) made a curious statement about how different races apparently view socialism.
“Defund police, open borders, socialism — it’s killing us,” Gonzalez said, according to The New York Times. “I had to fight to explain all that.”
