The extremist takeover of the Democratic party may still be in its formative stages but we can already see what are dangerous ideas being taken to another level by candidates looking to craft an appeal to the fanatics of the base.
Thanks to the media created 28-year-old socialist fireball Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it became mainstream to demand that the agency tasked with enforcing federal immigration laws be dismantled but now it’s just not enough to “Abolish ICE”, the agents who work there must be punished and prosecuted.
That’s the idea of Zephyr Teachout, a far-left candidate for Attorney General of New York as well as an ally of Ocasio-Cortez and gubernatorial underdog and former “Sex In The City” star Cynthia Nixon. The 46-year-old Fordham professor has taken the rhetoric to the next level and it will be a big hit with the rabble that comprises the party base.

Via Breitbart News, “Democrat Escalates ‘Abolish ICE!’ Wants to ‘Prosecute ICE!’”:
The ICE immigration-enforcement agency must be abolished and prosecuted, says the far-left progressive running for Attorney General of New York state.
“ICE has to be abolished, and I say that as somebody who is running for one of the top law-enforcement jobs in the country,” said Zephyr Teachout, a law professor and an ally of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic candidate for a House seat in New York who jump-started the Abolish ICE! campaign.
Teachout is using the issue to win votes from progressive groups and from immigrant and migrant communities:
ICE was born in xenophobia, in a time after 9/11 and has grown up to become a tool of fear and illegality. And as Attorney General, I will continue to speak out against ICE, I will prosecute ICE for their criminal acts.
What’s next? Prosecuting the NYPD? Where does this go except to the old Soviet Union?
The transformation of the Democratic party into the totalitarian monstrosity that it is becoming is terrifying to behold and if sane Americans want to avoid being trucked off to re-education camps as history has shown that all communist regimes do then they had better wake up and stomp down in this riff-raff in the upcoming elections. This sort of rhetoric is not only irresponsible but alien to this great nation.
