Democratic Socialist Vows to 'Usher' in Communism 'By Any Means Necessary'
Far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca pushes communist agenda
A radical Democrat has vowed to "usher" in communism to Denver City "by any means necessary."
Far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca, who identifies as a Democratic socialist, claims that American capitalism is a failure and she's "excited to usher" in a communist agenda to replace it.
Speaking in late March during a candidate forum for City Council District 9, newly-elected CdeBaca, who won in an upset runoff election earlier this month, said:
"I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources.
"And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.
"And I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources.
"And so, whatever that morphs into I think is what will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary." [Emphasis added]
According to the Daily Wire, Encyclopedia Britannica defines communism as a "political and economic doctrine that aims to replace private property and a profit-based economy with public ownership and communal control of at least the major means of production (e.g., mines, mills, and factories) and the natural resources of a society."
CdeBaca, who is a democratic socialist, drew intense criticism for saying that she will "usher" in communism "by any means necessary."
While it's not exactly clear what CdeBaca meant when she said "by any means necessary," PBS notes that Malcolm X used the phrase and it meant "up to and including the use of violence."
The American Mirror added that "by any means necessary" also happens to be a radical far-left organization.
