The Democrats have been making all sorts of outlandish claims now that they have a majority in both houses and run the White House. The Biden admin has been talking about raising taxes, stole away the rights of women to empower transwomen, is pushing this forced diversity nonsense, and is pushing the policy that Bernie Sanders was advocating for. Las Vegas Mayor John Lee has seen all of this and feels the party is by no means aligning with his more conservative views. In fact, he believes it is has become more of the Socialist party than Democrat and is converting to the GOP.
Mayor John Lee explained why he is changing parties during an appearance on FOX & Friends with Host Steve Doocy
Steve Doocy: “…You say the Democratic Party is now being run by admitted socialists and that’s why you had to get out.”
Mayor Lee: “I’d say card-carrying socialists and the Democratic Party in Nevada, They had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist Party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with anymore…
Doocy: “And the Democratic party you grew up with was the party of the working class but you don’t see that anymore.
Lee: The working class, or working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore. It all has to do with the elitists and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country of the future…
Mayor Lee later explained that he has always been a conservative person and the Democrat party was not aligning with his views in fact it was changing for the worse.
Lee: When you’re a pro-life Democrat, a pro-gun Democrat, and you’re a very conservative person, that’s not really well known in the Democratic Party anymore. And so for me to hang on as long as I did, hoping the party would change, it didn’t, it got worse. So, therefore, I found a new place that I can put my allegiance to and help. Once again, forget about the last eight years. It’s the next four years that predict the future.
Watch The Clip Below.
The Democrats have become far more radical and really with Biden as out of his head as he is, there is no telling whose agenda that he is pushing right now. But the Dems are by no means conservative.
