When former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced he was considering running as an Independent in 2020, Democrats freaked out, fearing that an Independent candidate would siphon off precious votes from whichever leftist extremist the Democratic Party had decided to nominate.

We’re still not sure if Schultz is going to run, be he’s already incurred the ire of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wondered why a billionaire like Schultz, who grew up in the projects, didn’t have to “work his way up” before considering a presidential run. You know, like she went straight from bartender to congresswoman.

Not only is the left upset that a billionaire like Schultz might run; they’re dragging him for pointing out some ugly truths about socialism and thus wondering why he doesn’t run as a Republican.

“History is utterly clear on this point” — but not everyone is utterly clear on history.

Wow, there sure is a lot of talk this election cycle about unearned wealth from strangely wealthy people like Elizabeth Warren.

Wow, that was an impressive stretch.

No, we think he was pretty clear why he opposes socialism.

Yeah, Howard Schultz is “far-right.”

“You don’t have any idea what socialism is” … “we’re going to take your money.” There it is, folks.

Fear who? Antifa? The kids with their faces covered carrying around homemade shields and vandalizing businesses when a conservative speaker comes to town?

Damn, now we really hope he announces.

Yep … and that’s what’s going to split the vote between the Joe Biden Democrats and everyone else, and we’re here for it.
