Democratic Socialists of America Grows Like a Slow Tumor

The US’s largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America continues to grow like a cancerous tumor on the American body politic.

DSA has just finished a complete count of their membership in order to apportion the number of delegates to their National Convention in November. The numbers show a 10% increase in membership since the apportionment for their 2009 convention and a 60% increase since the 2003 convention.

The 10% increase is particularly satisfying since the increase from the 2007 convention to the 2009 convention was just 1.5%. The latest numbers confirm our judgment that we are continuing the major membership jump that we experienced between 2003 and 2007. The number of members in local DSA groups also increased significantly from 39% to 47.5%. The membership count for July 2011 is 6478 as opposed to 5890 in July of 2009.

We attribute our continued growth to the fact that most poor, working and middle class people have experienced stagnant incomes in the last decade and income inequality has grown. In response to the recession DSA members have engaged in much more activism in recent years; DSA, and the socialist idea, have also enjoyed increased visibility because of the continuous right-wing attacks on us as well as the false attacks describing President Obama as a socialist.

DSAers lying to protect an important ally

For a rundown on President Obama’s extensive ties to DSA go here.

While just under 6,500 may not seem a huge number in a country of over 300 million, it is important to remember that DSA is not a normal political party, but more of a political ‘mafia’ or secret society. It exerts its influence, not under its own name, but by infiltrating and manipulating other organizations.

DSA has hundreds of members and supporters in key academic and media positions. It has influence in Hollywood and the churches.

DSA dominates the AFL-CIO and America’s two most powerful unions AFSCME and SEIU. It controls, or influences dozens of mass organizations from Jobs with Justice, Coalition of Labor Union Women, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, National Jobs For All Coalition and the Apollo Alliance to the Gray Panthers.

DSA has thousands of members in the Democratic Party, virtually running the party in states like Michigan and Massachusetts.

DSA helped establish the now more than 80 strong Congressional Progressive Caucus.

It has dozens of members or allies currently serving in Congress and the Senate – including John Conyers, Jerry Nadler, Bob Filner, Jan Schakowsky, Danny Davis, John Lewis, Eleanor Holmes Norton and Bernie Sanders.

Many cancer sufferers don’t even realize they have a tumor until its too late.

Americans need to wake up to the fact that DSA is working hard to destroy your country from within.

It will succeed, unless America’s ‘immune system’ starts to kick in very quickly.

Tea Party Express Statement on President Obama’s Jobs Speech

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 8, 2011
CONTACT: Levi Russell at [email protected], or (509) 979-6615


Tea Party Express Chief Strategist Sal Russo issued this statement today in advance of President Obama’s speech:

“President Obama’s performance so far has amounted to a succession of lofty speeches backed up by little substance, and he seems to be embarking on a similar path of proposals for more government and more spending. His contribution to the difficult debt ceiling debate was a speech in which he told Americans to “eat their peas.” In February Obama told the nation that jobs were his number one priority. Yet last month, not one single American job was added. Not surprisingly, the President’s solution is yet another speech with old, unworkable solutions.

“Despite his rhetoric, Obama has repeatedly failed to deliver a plan with substance or meaningful action, but continually threatens those doing the real work with higher taxes and more government regulation. In speech after speech, the president disparages plans put forth to grow the economy, yet has failed to actually put pen to paper and submit a tangible document himself. The single notable exception was his disastrous budget proposal, which failed to garner even a single vote in Harry Reid’s Democrat-led Senate.

“When real action is needed, President Obama seems to always have other priorities. He has had ample time for golf and numerous vacations while free trade agreements with Panama, South Korea, and Columbia that were carefully negotiated during the Bush Administration have sat languishing for years, while he pandered to liberal special interests at the expense of growing our economy

“We at the Tea Party Express realize that Obama will continue his pattern of failure, and the only answer is for the tea party movement to work hard to put a capable conservative in the White House in November 2012.”
