So, just how far left has the Democratic Party gone?

This far

A conference featuring eight prominent 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls kicked off in Washington, D.C,. with the fiery rallying cry of a fugitive cop-killer on Monday, as the labor and political groups in attendance shouted in unison, “We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

Jamal Watkins, the Vice President of Civic Engagement at the NAACP, began by telling the audience at the We the People conference that he would invoke the words of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard.

Shakur was convicted of the 1973 murder of a New Jersey state trooper when she was in the Black Liberation Army. After escaping from prison in 1979, Shakur fled to Cuba, which granted her asylum even as she remains on the FBI’s list of most-wanted fugitive terrorists.

Watkins then quoted Shakur, pausing to let attendees repeat after him: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

Shakur’s words, in turn, were appropriated from the final sentences of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels’ Communist Manifesto: “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!”

Among the groups in attendance were the Sierra Club, MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, SEIU and Communications Workers of America.

Straight up Marxism folks. The mask slipped completely off on this occasion. Moonbattery adds this context

If the quote does not sound alarming, remember that leftists speak in cloyingly fake euphemisms that are often Orwellian. By freedom, they mean the slavery of collectivist totalitarianism. To “win” is to destroy American society. To “support each other” is to impose communism.

Having nothing to lose but their chains was lifted from the Communist Manifesto, which could virtually serve as the Democrat Party platform now — provided you throw in a few pages about killing babies, suppressing economic output in the name of the weather, punishing white people, and promoting sexual perversion.

Yes, these people are dangerous folks.

One thought on “So, just how far left has the Democratic Party gone?”
