Can the Democratic Socialist movement work in Michigan?

Anchor: One progressive candidate scored a Senator Bernie Sanders endorsement. A former Detroit Health Department… I’m Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, I’m running for governor in the great state of Michigan Who am I? Pulitzer Prize-winner, author… Shit show. The country’s collapsing, the ratings are great. If you’re following El-Sayed, he’s a piece of a movement, right? Which is, the Democratic Party’s gonna have to splinter. I’m gonna grab her. She’s right here. Oh my god! She’s looking at herself on television right now. Ocasio-Cortez: I’m here with Abdul El-Sayed. Show us where we’re going. Abdul El-Sayed: We were here now we’re going here. Then we’re gonna end up the day in Detroit. All in the palm of our hand. Why don’t you think it’s Sayed’s time? It’s not his time because nobody ever heard of him. The country is not far left. The country is pretty much straight down the middle. We’re regular people looking for a future who don’t like our government almost at any level. My name’s Ray Lisa. J-A-M-B-S Yes. My name is Tom Young and I refinished antique bathtubs. That’s cool. We’re sick of having to just pick the lesser of two evils. Done with it. It’s a very important election. I also think Democrats need to get their stuff together and listen to their base more. I won’t vote for somebody I don’t believe in. They haven’t been looking for young candidates. I don’t believe in just a blanket support of the Democrat ’cause they’re not a Republican. I want somebody who actually is going to do something to make positive change for the majority of people in the state. Thank you Lisa, I appreciate it. El-Sayed: Who here believes that we need democracy over corporate domination? Let me here you. Ocasio-Cortez: Two years of saying this country won’t vote for Medicare for all. Two years of people saying tuition-free college is not supported even in the state of New York. Well we prove all of it wrong. That is the future of this party. That is the future of this nation. That is the future of this movement. What the progressive movement or even the Tea Party movement, right, is we’re trying to get somewhere. And the way to get there, we don’t agree on We just know that this– everybody knows this is shit. And this is what I think Michigan votes on, I think this is what Pennsylvania votes on, I think this what Texas and California and New York and and Florida. Sure, there’s identity politics, but if the left can deliver that We’ll take it. Thank you. I feel great. Alexi McCammond: People are pointing to the polls and saying, “We should look to the polls.” You know, I’ll admit I am not winning among people who still answer landlines in the middle of the day. I’m not winning those folks. The problem is that most people don’t answer landlines in the middle of the day. You know, I’ve never been one who gives up on doing the work for people. And so we’re building our movement and I think we’re gonna win. McCammond: And if for whatever reason you don’t win the primary, will you support whoever is the Democratic nominee for governor? El-Sayed: I will support a Democrat if they win in the primary. LeDuff: See that see the city building now? That’s downtown. That building marks Midtown. This stretch that you can see with your naked eye is to come back. This is where they say the miracle is happening. But there are human beings two miles that way and two miles that way and they don’t feel in a goddamn thing. So what is this about? McCammond: Who’s talking to them, then? Not even the Socialists.

  1. Who is this poor man's Sam Elliot and why do we care about his opinions again? Oh yeah, they're the opinions of axios

  2. Abdul El-Sayed is a Muslim Brotherhood operative. He is using Taqiyya,kitman,maruna, and tawriya to deceive people who do not believe in Islam to push the cause of Islam and to promote it. If he gets elected he will put sharia into Michigan. Here are credible articles why Abdul El-Sayed is a political terrorist and a liar.

  4. NO!!! I bought into the anti crony capitalism sentiments Bernie preached, but the progressives who LOVE the Scandinavian model never mention that the top marginal tax rate in Denmark (their go to country) is 60% and starts at 54k, NO THANKS!!! the government sucks at spending money, why give them more to waste?

  5. This guy in the bar is a dipshit. Abdul El-Sayed's policies poll over 70%, except for maybe 3-5 policies and those 3 to 5 policies actually poll around 60% Approval Rating. This washed up writer is a dumbass. Not to mention the "socialist" even though he doesn't call himself that, he actually is the only one addressing the downtrodden areas. I really hate elites, includes washed up pseudo-activists. Why did Axios give that dumb fuck a political platform? Just looked him up and he's a joke.

  6. Jesus, this guy in the bar is a dumb fuck. El-Sayed's polices poll well.

  18. Free stuff sounds so good under Democratic Socialism AKA=Marxism. Then reality sets in on the Utopia as a Military Boot is crashing your ass, kiss good bye your freedom as your regulated to Serfdom. All the Professors with there noble ideas of equality will be lined up against the wall and shot. Once they find out the true meaning of equality in a Marxiest Utopia theyll want to revolt and these people aren't tolerated. Some just dont learn from HISTORY.
