Over the weekend CNN host Jake Tapper “accidentally” retweeted an image of a Democratic Socialists of America flyer that says “the future of the Democratic Party” is full-blown socialism.
While it’s unclear where the photo was snapped or if it even came from that group, the flyer listed everything the far-left group hates, including President Donald Trump, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the police, Israel, the pro-life movement, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, private property, the right to work, corporations and compromise.
Take a look, and keep an eye out for glaring misspellings:

The flyer misspelled Kavanaugh’s last name. It also included this humdinger: “The Future of the Democratic Party.” The flyer provides actually a picture-perfect representation of the Democrat Party in its current form, if you think about.
Every single day Democrats across the country chant, stomp and holler against the president, against immigration enforcement, against the police, against Israel, against really anything and everything that makes America so exceptional.
Way at the bottom of the flyer, there was also a 200th birthday shout-out to deceased socialist Karl Marx, who was born on May 5, 1818.
What remains unclear is whether Tapper retweeted the photo itself or Ahmari’s tweet pictured above. Check out the following twitter posts and see if you can figure it out:
@jaketapper Dude, you are a journalist why are you retweeting things that are obviously fake?

Didnt mean to. Clumsy thumb and spotty international wireless

Plenty of us who have some faith in your journalistic integrity saw your retweet. Why not call the pic out as the fake it is instead of just deleting it? I had to hunt for your retraction – many others won’t and will be left with an incorrect impression of the organization.

excuses are silly
admitting mistakes are heroic

What’s odd is the belief among these left-wing tools that the flyer was fake. Are they trying to deny that the Democratic Socialists of America is a radical organization that hates America as we know it? If so, that would be some CNN-grade fake news.
Just check out the group’s website here. It touts every single one of ideas seen on the flyer, including opposition to capitalism.
“The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few,” the group explicitly says on its front page.
Except it need not call itself the Democratic Socialists of America anymore. Given the left’s veer to the far-left (a bona fide socialist just won a Democrat primary last month), it might as well call itself the Democrat Party 2.0.
I.e., the same Democrat Party that just snubbed 26-year congressional veteran Dianne Feinstein , and that wants to abolish ICE, rewrite the Constitution and tax the wealthy into poverty, among other things.
