[Madison, WI] – Milwaukee’s long history with socialism made the city an obvious choice to host the 2020 DNC convention, according to Mark Jefferson, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin.
“No city in America has stronger ties to socialism than Milwaukee,” Jefferson said. “And with the rise of Bernie Sanders and the embrace of socialism by its newest leaders, the American left has come full circle. It’s only fitting the Democrats would come to Milwaukee.”
Milwaukee is the only major American city to elect three socialist mayors, beginning in 1910. More recently, Hillary Clinton complained that being a capitalist probably hurt her chances when campaigning against Bernie Sanders. What’s more, the Party’s newest leaders have called for trillions in new giveaways. This includes embracing the Green New Deal Agenda that seeks to eliminate air travel and originally called for a “greenhouse gas free food system” that would have essentially eliminated cows – a move that would be particularly problematic for the Dairy State.
“The people of Wisconsin are far more practical than today’s socialist-embracing Democratic Party gives them credit for,” Jefferson said. “We’ll get to reap the economic benefits of a convention, while they show the state up close why this bunch should never be trusted to run the country.”
