The Democratic Party has become increasingly radical. While some have simply followed the trend, one politician has left the party.
North Las Vegas Democrat Mayor John Lee is running for re-election as a Republican after leaving the Democratic Party, the Conservative Brief reported. Lee cited their “socialist agenda” that is “totally anti-American” for the change.
“The party moved past me. In fact, Democrats are now leaving that party in droves because of the socialist agenda that has taken place in the Democratic Party,” Lee said of the switch.
“They’re totally anti-American. There was nowhere for people who thought and felt like I did about the virtues and values and morals of being a good American,” the mayor continued. “It was time to leave. They have destroyed the Democratic Party now.
Lee lamented how many “card-carrying members of the Socialist Party” now make up the Democrat leadership, leaving regular folks in the dust. “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,” he said.
“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,” Lee added.
Later, Lee spoke about being edged out of the party by this radicalism. “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.”
Since switching parties last year, Lee ran in the Nevada primary to become the GOP candidate for the governor’s office. That spot went to Clark County Sherriff Joseph Lombardo, so Lee will remain in office and run for re-election to his current post, which otherwise ends in November 2022.
Democrats have lefts sane, average Americans behind in favor of wokeism. Perhaps more who object will follow Lee’s lead.
