Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)


No group is more closely associated with the Marxist-Communist movement than the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). This organization, which is an active element of the Democrat Party was thrust into the mainstream by the unexpectedly strong electoral performances of prominent politicians such as self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders and DSA member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The group is presently the face of far-left politics in the United States.


The Democratic Socialists of America was established in 1982 and is best understood as a revolutionary movement that seeks nothing less than to overturn the very foundations of American society. Its economic proposals would eliminate American business activity as we know it. It demands the total dismantling of functional law enforcement nationwide. Its hatred of Israel is so vitriolic that at times it has crossed into the realm of moral depravity.

How both the Democrats and the DSA respond to the DSA’s rapid ascendancy will continue to significantly impact the ideological and rhetorical framework within which American politics takes place.


In late in 2014 the DSA made a pivotal decision to go all in behind the looming presidential campaign of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The unexpected success of Sanders’ presidential campaigns and his public self-identification as a democratic socialist did much to boost the national profile of the DSA and drove the group’s rapid growth. In 2018, DSA member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise Democratic congressional primary victory in New York reportedly prompted the largest single-day membership gain in the organization’ history.


One of the most important things to understand about the DSA is that it is a political activist group, not a political party. It is legally organized as a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization—the same nonprofit category as the National Rifle Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, or the AARP. This can be confusing, particularly since the DSA has published a detailed political platform, endorses candidates for office, counts multiple high-profile elected officials among its members, and is otherwise actively involved in American politics.


More than 200 local chapters and organizing committees are affiliated with the national DSA, some of which also have their own IRS tax-exempt statuses. Chapters vary significantly in size: A survey found that about 50 percent had 1–100 members, 38 percent had 101–500 members, and 12 percent had over 500 members. The largest DSA chapters naturally tend to be located in major urban areas. The New York City chapter has traditionally been particularly influential, reportedly accounting for roughly 10 percent of the national organization’s entire membership.

I don’t know what’s scarier for North Carolina: the influx of illegal aliens or brainwashed Democrats.
