Sebastian Gorka came out firing and railed against the leftward drift of the Democratic party in a blistering speech at CPAC.
Gorka took no prisoners in his remarks, going right after the new ideas the Democrats who have recently proposed them.
“You know what the biggest threat to America is? Not socialism in Moscow, socialism here in America,” Gorka started.
“According to the amazing Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, they did a poll last year in which they found that 52 percent of American millennials would like to live in a socialist or communist America,” he added.
“That — yes indeed, boo. Yes indeed, hiss. That is why 40, four-zero Democrat candidates in the last midterm election called themselves socialists.”
Then Gorka moved in for the kill,
“That is why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has introduced the Green New Deal, which is, which is — remember this one, use it — it’s a watermelon. Green on the outside, deep, deep red communist on the inside.
“They want to take your pick-up truck, they want to rebuild your home, they want to take away your hamburgers. This is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved,” Gorka added.
“You are on the front lines of the war against communism coming back to America under the guise of ‘democratic socialism,’ which is just a PC term for communism.
I want everyone to take to heart Donald J. Trump is never going to let it happen. And as he said to Congress, America will never be a socialist country,” Gorka said.
This all sounds good but the GOP is in danger of going too far in the other direction – Trump wanted to raise taxes on the very wealthy but Paul Ryan and the rest convinced him that was a bad idea.
With wealth inequality still growing, the call to tax the wealthy will become more popular than it already is. It is shockingly popular on both sides of the aisle now and could be a winning message in the 2020 election for the Dems if the GOP isn’t careful.
