The embarrassing electoral smattering of Hillary Clinton in November of 2016 carried with it the added effect of fracturing the democratic party.
In the wake of a massive dump of information from within the Clinton campaign, provided by Julian Assange and Wikileaks, the democratic party found themselves on the short end of the stick. Collusion between the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign was proven by the release of stolen emails from campaign manager John Podesta. In the emails, the Clinton campaign was revealed to have worked with the party’s organizers to actively discourage the nomination of rival Bernie Sanders.
The Bernie bros were infuriated, and demanded that heads should roll. Debbie Wassermann Shultz was the first to get the ax, with a great deal of the DNC staff soon to follow.
Now, in the wake of that scandal, the democratic party is halving itself time and again. Soon, as fringe political groups continue to pick up the scraps of the democratic voter base, the party of Hillary Clinton could soon disappear.
“The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) has been receiving membership requests ever since Donald Trump was elected President.
“U.S. citizens with Marxist ideas were among the first to organize following the October Revolution of 1917, while their party, founded in 1919, is soon set to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
“Since its establishment, the CPUSA has lived through the inter-war period and Cold War repression, which practically forced the organization underground. Of the country’s 300 million inhabitants, the organization currently has some 5,000 members nationwide.”
Fringe parties such as the Communist Party and the Green Party have struggled to make any real impact on American politics in recent years. Even the Libertarian Party has been unable to reach an audile large enough to warrant a debate podium for their candidates.
