• ‘The Squad Is Here to Stay'(?) – Radical Leftists Make Gains in Dem Primaries

    Surge Summary: Recent primaries are demonstrating: the radical Left is gaining ground in the Democratic Party. Traditional Liberals are disappearing from the caucus, progressives are proliferating. They could end up making the likes of Pelosi and Schumer seem preferable.

    The far-left takeover of Joe Biden’s Democrat Party is continuing at an incredible pace.  That has been evident in recent primaries across the country and again [Tuesday] night. For example:

    In New York, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who led the campaign against Amazon creating 25,000 new jobs in her district, was challenged last month by a highly-respected, well-funded journalist.  AOC won 73% of the vote.

    Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a pro-Israel liberal, barely survived a left-wing challenge.  Rep. Eliot Engel, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, did not.  He was defeated by 15 points.

    Unfortunately, support for the Jewish state is quickly becoming a disqualifying issue among the “woke” left.

    [Tuesday] night in Michigan, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, one of the most obnoxious and anti-Semitic members of Congress, prevailed in a rematch against a well-known black leader.  Two years ago, Tlaib barely won a divided primary.  [Tuesday] night, she won in a landslide, declaring, “It’s safe to say the Squad is here to stay, and it’s only getting bigger.”

    Indeed it is.

    In Missouri [Tuesday], Rep. Lacy Clay was defeated by Cori Bush, a radical BLM activist with no elected experience.  Clay’s father, Rep. William Clay, held this seat for 32 years and was a co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Bush raised her profile in recent months by attending every radical demonstration in the district.  She is anti-Israel, and will no doubt join the Squad as a proud member.

    As irritating as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can be, they are the old guard and their time is running out.

    Now just imagine Speaker Tlaib and Senate Democrat Leader Ocasio-Cortez.  (There is considerable speculation that AOC will challenge Schumer in 2022.)

    We may soon yearn for the days when we had Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to deal with, instead of these leftist anti-American firebrands.

    This is also a clear sign that if, God forbid, Joe Biden prevails in November, he will continue his march toward the extreme left as woke, anti-Israel and, in many ways, anti-American forces gain more influence in the Democrat Party.

    And when I write anti-American, I’m not exaggerating.  Polls show that young Democrats are the least patriotic demographic in the country.

    We must defeat the radical left!
