Harry Reid Left Center-Left Mainstream Party for Electoral Suicide, Americans Say

by Nate Nelson, Pitbull Patriots

The key to understanding Nevada Democratic Senate candidate Harry Reid may be the fact that he has not always been a Socialist.

For at least 45 years before the inauguration of President Barack Obama, Reid was a member of the now-defunct Democratic Party, a center-left party that combined elements of Bill Clinton’s centrist Third Way ideology — pro-capitalism, anti-protectionism, anti-welfare state, and pro-fiscal responsibility — with a sensible foreign policy featuring America remaining in its role as leader of a free world. The centrist party attracted considerable controversy in 1993 when it passed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and again in 1996 when it passed welfare reform, fulfilling then-President Bill Clinton’s promise to “end welfare as we know it.”

Three members of the Democratic Party tell Pitbull Patriots that Reid, serving in the U.S. Senate leadership at the time, was an active member of the party in the 1990s. They say he only left the Democratic Party and became a Socialist in some kind of political suicide pact when he decided to be forced into retirement from his Senate seat, to which he was elected in 1986.

“We don’t know why he left the party,” Joe Blue, ordinary Democrat, tells Pitbull Patriots. “He’s made it so difficult for members of our party to get elected at this time. It was a strange move on his part.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi co-founded the new Socialist Party with Obama and Reid after realizing that the Democratic Party was growing too popular and capitalistic. The party lost its mind in mid-2008 and hasn’t gotten it back since. That year, Reid signed on to Obama’s radical plan to put America on the fast track to Eurosocialism and to taking a backseat to our enemies on the world stage.

That was a heady time for the new party. A 2009 book, Game Change, describes Reid’s 2008 assessment of candidate Obama. His rhetoric would not be out of place at a Ku Klux Klan rally.

Game Change reveals that Reid “believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,’ as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.”

These days, some longtime Democratic Party members feel bitter about the arc of Reid’s career.

Lucy Liberal, another average Democrat, tells Pitbull Patriots that “I think Harry in his heart is a very good person.” But she remains upset that “he decided to go over and join with the revolutionary Socialists and commit political hara-kiri.”

“The national Socialists are going to come in here and teach him how to be an even better Marxist brownshirt,” she predicts. “He’ll just be another dyed-in-the-wool stooge Socialist.”
