Rahm Emanuel, democrat Mayor of Chicago, had some sage advice for all the other hard leftists in the Party nationwide.
In a speech he gave on Monday at Stanford University, he told his fellow dems to “Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul.” He also added that if some had dreams of winning back power two years from now, “It ain’t gonna happen in 2018.”
Ahhh – music to my ears. But if they keep this up – he’s right – they will be hard pressed to win anything in 2018 – or beyond. And that is Emanuel’s point.
Communist and former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones was quoted as saying: “I’m willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.”
In others words, I will hide my outward radical leftist façade from the public and remake myself into a respectable member of society. I will stop marching and protesting and trade in my Che Guevara t-shirt for a suit. I’ll still be a Marxist. I will just no longer look and sound so conspicuous and scary.
