At the Democrat debate last night, the candidates were asked if they would not want to see a “democratic socialist” candidate nominated, and only one hand was raised:
Incredible. Not a single Democrat, except Amy Klobuchar, raised their hand when asked if they’re concerned about having a socialist at the top of the ticket. Unreal. #DemDebate

If MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews had been on the stage his hand might have gone up too:
When discussing Bernie Sanders, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews goes on a rant against socialism:
“I’ve seen what socialism is like and I don’t like it.”

Here’s a longer clip:
Video: Watch Chris Matthews GO OFF like a boss (no, I'm not joking) about the dangers of socialism re; Bernie, the pure evil of communism, the legitimate fears of a Red Scare in the Cold War, and how "there would have been executions in Central Park" if they won pic.twitter.com/2XxmZbsJTc

You know your party has swung too far left when Chris Matthews, Van Jones and James Carville are voices of reason, and comprise your final curb against the Socialist Abyss. https://t.co/EFJZ6Kw5sr

Is Matthews going to wonder if his cheerleading for Obama helped usher in an era of the Democratic Party sweeping more and more to the Left and this is where it’s ended up?
