Marxists are working overtime to take over the Maine Democratic Party, from Congressional to local level. Since its founding in June 2016, Maine Democratic Socialists of America, the Portland-based local of this country’s largest crypto-communist organization, have become a significant force in Pine Tree State politics.
“Topics ranged from health care to crafting progressive messages and programs.”
Last November, Maine DSA comrade Mike Sylvester, running as a “Democratic Socialist,” won a Maine State House seat representing the 39th District.
Now, another Maine DSAer, Joey Brunelle, is running for Portland City Council as a “progressive.”
At the grassroots level, Maine DSA has effectively conquered the state’s most influential Democratic Party club, the Cumberland County Democrats.
Another DSA comrade, Shannon McCartney, came within 4 votes of taking the Cumberland County Democrats chairmanship.
Maine has long been a blue state, but never a socialist state. I’ll bet most Maine Democrats have no idea that their party is being hijacked by Neo-Marxists, socialists and outright communists.
There is nothing “Democratic” about Democratic Socialists of America.
