Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the Rescue of the Democratic Party internationalist.org

Submitted by RAN in Politics

Excerpt:

Far from seeking to bury the world’s oldest capitalist party, the “democratic socialists” hailed by the Times seek to rescue, rebuild and refurbish it. That has always been the reason for existence of the Democratic (Party) Socialists of America, which Ocasio-Cortez joined after the DSA endorsed her campaign. This is the opposite of genuine socialism as put forward by Karl Marx, who stressed that the word can only be a deception unless it is based on the fight to win the political independence of the working class. For the workers and oppressed in the U.S., the most urgent and central task is a systematic and thorough break from the bosses’ Democratic Party, which chains them to the politics and institutions of the capitalist order.

I wish people would stop misusing the word 'socialism'. Someone suggested 'demsocs' should say 'New Deal Democrat' which makes a lot more sense.
