Maybe socialism isn’t going to be such a hot seller after all….
In an early road test of how the militant candidates backed by media-created superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will measure up nationally, the Democratic Socialists Of American were smacked down in Tuesday’s Michigan primary.
We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country.
Check your state primary date & VOTE August 7th + 11th.

Abdul El-Sayed went down hard in his quest to become the nation’s first Muslim governor, getting spanked by establishment Democrat Gretchen Whitmer in what should be a lesson in humility for the 28-year-old taco bar firebrand. Whitmer beat El-Sayed by over a quarter of a million votes in a race that wouldn’t have even been that close was it not for the heavily-Muslim city of Dearborn.
Not only did Ocasio-Cortez campaign hard for El-Sayed but so did commie cadaver Bernie Sanders who has done much to contribute to the state of borderline anarchy that exists in America today with his 21st Century revamping of the rabble-rousing of Vladimir I. Lenin for domestic consumption.

The primary could also be an early indication that Bernie’s “vision” is on the wane and his popularity has peaked now that he isn’t running against the devil herself, Hillary Clinton.
Former Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer on Tuesday won the state’s Democratic primary, defeating two progressive candidates billing her as an establishment choice.
The Associated Press called the race for Whitmer at 9:55 p.m.
As of 11:13 p.m. was leading with 50.39 percent of the vote, beating Abdul El-Sayed’s 33.36 percent and Shri Thanedar’s 16.25 percent.
Whitmer, known as a liberal lawmaker during her time in the legislature, faced attacks from the left from El-Sayed and Thanedar.
El-Sayed in particular had gotten the endorsement of Bernie Sanders, who won over Hillary Clinton in Michigan’s 2016 presidential primary and drew comparisons between his candidacy and El-Sayed’s in a speech last weekend.
And the American Mirror delivers what should be a wake-up call to Ocasio-Cortez’s drive to remake America in Venezuela’s image:
Socialist star Ocasio-Cortez strikes out: All endorsed candidates lose Tuesday primaries
Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.
El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 50.1 percent to 34.6 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.
Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 20.1 percent of the vote.
Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 62.3 percent to 30.2 percent, the Times results show.
The Tuesday thumping would have normal people reassess their strategy but expect the dimwitted “future” of the Democratic party to triple-down.
This has to also raise questions as to whether she can win her own district again in November now that she isn’t able to fly under the radar.
