Multi-billion dollar philanthropist, businessman, and social justice warrior George Soros is the main attraction at the upcoming Democratic Alliance meeting in Washington DC. This gathering is much more somber than many attendees expected before the Nov 8 election surprise. With the triumph of Donald J Trump the mood has gone from jubilation to all hands on deck.
George Soros is seen by many in the American and international progressive movement as one of the founding fathers of the modern liberal movement on time.com. The stunning defeat that liberals faced during the 2016 election has led to a great deal of soul searching within the party. Many of the party rank and file are looking to men like George Soros to find a way forward.
One of the major topics of discussion at the meeting will be the new Democratic National Committee chairman. Many people support Keith Ellison- who would be the first major party leader on nytimes.com in the United States to be a Muslim. There is also talk of replacing various committee leaders in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Very few liberals are planning any major overhaul of the party platform- the goal is to change the messaging in a way that will resonate with working class voters in the middle of the country. George Soros has already pledged millions of dollars to fight the Trump agenda from New York to California.
While the vast majority of Democrats are united behind the alliance there is still a growing wing of the party known as “Berniecrats” who want to send the party even farther left. While George Soros most likely agrees with them politically the major differences come from the speed of the change. Soros is not known as an accelerationist on project-syndicate.org.
One thing is for certain- the Democratic Alliance meeting will show the party a path forward for the 2018 and the 2020 elections at the very least. The entire agenda at http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/ for the next two years will be examined thoroughly. George Soros has been a major power player in the Democratic party and it does not look like things will be changing anytime soon.
