The socialist party website praised themselves for now having four members of Democratic Socialists of America serving in Congress.
The four members they listed include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) who will now be joined in the House by Jamaal Bowman (D-New York) and Cori Bush (D-Missouri).
Previously only two avowed socialists managed to secure House seats simultaneously. It happened first some 90 years ago, under the Socialist Party of America, and then in the 80s and 90s, with two DSA members acceding.
The author, Maurice Isserman, touted the development as a “significant political landmark in the history of the American Left.”

Isserman comically used his liberal logic, or better yet, Socialist stupidity, in writing:
In November 2020, both Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez handily won re-election, and have been joined in the 117th Congress by two more DSA members: Cori Bush from Missouri’s 1st district and Jamaal Bowman from New York’s 16th district.
That raises the democratic socialist numbers from two to four out of four hundred and thirty-five. (At this rate, doubling the socialist delegation every two years, it’d only take six more elections before socialists in 2032 would become a majority in the House — exponential growth is a wonderful thing.)
But let’s give Isserman credit for admitting that his Marxist math was simply laughable when he added: “Given the contingencies of non-fantasy politics, such an outcome remains unlikely.”
“Real” Socialist Slam DSA’s Self-Congrajlatory
Despite their self-congratulatory messaging, ‘real’ American socialists lambasted the DSA’s bloviating Bolsheviks.
America’s ‘real’ simpleminded Stalinists screeched that the DSA has no business calling AOC and Rashida Tlaib ‘socialists’.
They took issue with Ocasio-Cortez and her now-extended ‘clod squad’ members falling in line like good little Democrat drones by voting for Nancy Pelosi (D-California) as House Speaker.
The ‘Clod Squad‘ still bent the knee by helping reelect the Democrats Stuttering Alcoholic, Speaker of the House.
Socialist Clapback At The “Fraud Squad”
The communist twittering twits renamed the DSA, AOC, and her ‘Squad’ of supposed progressive socialists Democrats, the “fraud squad.”
As a Conservative, perhaps for the one and only time, I have to agree with these Marxist mental midgets.
After all, how could AOC declare herself a progressive Democrat socialist, while simultaneously selling a line of overpriced products like any good money-hungry Capitalist?
They are liberal centrists that work for Pelosi

Twitter users, some of which used portraits of Joseph Stalin as their profile pics, called AOC’s ‘Clod Squad‘ “imperialists,” who “vote for war crimes and coups.”
You misspelled ‘imperialists.’

They vote for war crimes, coups, ICE cages, and sanctions, which no socialist would ever do. This makes them neocons.
