The Democratic Socialists of America Meeting Was Something Else

Socialism is creeping in our country like never before. A recent study indicates that millennials prefer socialism to capitalism. The Democratic Party has gone so far left, they should be accused of plagiarizing Karl Marx's ideas. But, if these recent videos from the Democratic Socialists of America conference are any indication of how quickly their ideas could be implemented, then the U.S.A has nothing to worry about. It appears the DSA crowd is too triggered by scents, sounds, and the wrong pronouns to actually get anything accomplished without some whiny progressive stopping the meeting to complain. 

A newly formed group, Young Americans Against Socialism, posted the videos over the weekend. You'd be forgiven for thinking the soundbites were a parody, but no, they are real. In the first clip, a member of the audience invokes a "point of personal privilege" and addresses the crowd.

"Guys, first of all, James Jackson, Sacramento he/him," I just want to say can we please keep the chatter to a minimum,  I'm one of the people whose very, very prone to sensory overload there's a lot of whispering and chattering going on it's making it very difficult for me to focus, Please, I know we're all fresh and ready to go, but please can we just keep the chatter to a minimum. It's affecting my ability to focus." (emphasis added)

"Thank you, comrade," the emcee said before wanting to move on.

Just then a grown man, who sounds as if he is doing a Will Ferrell imitation from Step Brothers, invokes his own "personal privilege."

"Point of personal privilege, point of personal privilege!" the man in the pink dress demands. "Please do not use gendered language to address everyone!" 

Perhaps respecting the request of Jackson, the audience remains silent and the emcee simply says, "okay."

Ahh!  Jackson you bigot! You called your fellow comrades, "guys." 

This is no bueno for leftists, you let your patriarchal privilege freak flag fly and got, at the risk of sounding offensive, verbally manhandled by the dude (or dudette depending on their gender ID) in the pink dress. 

"But, wait there's more," Young Americans Against Socialism wants you to know. 

"Quick point of privilege once again!" an exasperated Jackson says. "I have already asked people to be mindful of the chatter of their comrades who are sensitive to sensory overload. And that goes DOUBLE for the heckling and hissing! It is also triggering to my anxiety! Like...it is isn't just for like 'let's keep things civil' or whatever. It's so that people aren't gonna get triggered and it doesn't affect their performance as a delegate."

Jackson then says while "your need to express yourself is important," it doesn't "trump or over..." before the video ends. 

Perhaps Jackson should have simply used one of the quiet rooms that were offered in order to focus. 

The delegates and leaders of the DS have clearly become so openminded that their brains have fallen out. Luckily, Young Americans Against Socialism has formed in order to show the Americans "the reality of the HELL of socialism."
