During a speech in Iowa, Democratic presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris assured the crowd that she wasn’t a “revolutionary” nor was she a “socialist.”
“I’m not trying to upend and blow up systems. I’m not trying to start a revolution. I am not a socialist,” she said. She’s also not going to be a candidate for president much longer. Her faltering campaign has been circling the drain for a couple of weeks and is not likely to survive the Iowa Caucuses.
Why that is speaks volumes about the current state of the Democratic Party. The center of gravity in the party has fallen off a cliff and even relative moderates like Harris have been left behind.
But just because a candidate says they’re not a socialist, is that true?
