How many black conservatives do you know personally?

Trump probably pays to have them show up at rallies when you can actually find pictures of black people at his rallies. Almost like finding where's Waldo

Socialism has nothing to do with taxes. And nothing to do with the federal government.

Socialism means workers owning their own workplace, owning the means of production.

You realize you also fit the definition of a bigot when you see a “label” and immediately classify everyone wearing it as “x” or “y”. There is no difference from the MAGA hat wearing Trump supporter to you and the black skinned citizen to a KKK member. You both drink the same KoolAid.

They did that a long time ago, although they are really more along the lines of authoritarian collectivists. I think that should be their name: American Authoritarian Collectivist Party (AACP). That name better reflects their true nature and belief system.

Evidence? AOC is a dues-paying member of the Democratic Socialists of America. They are indeed true socialists. As this post irrefutably showed:
http://www.city-data.com/forum/52840982-post162.html

I can't find out whether Bernie is a current member of DSA, but he has been listed as a member on their site in the past. They don't have an updated list of electeds who are members on their site.

There also is the statement of DNC chair Perez to consider, that AOC is the "future" of the Democratic Party.
