MSNBC Runs Segment Explaining, Defending Democratic Socialism

"The word most people focus on is socialism, but while Democratic socialists pull some ideas from that ideology, they are not traditional socialists."

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle defended democratic socialists claiming they were not Socialists despite pulling some ideas from that ideology during a segment on Thursday.

The segment was spurred by democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unexpected primary win in New York’s 14th Congressional District on Tuesday.

“The word most people focus on is socialism, but while democratic socialists pull some ideas from that ideology, they are not traditional socialists,” Ruhle said.

“Here’s what else it is not: communism. Most people use communism and socialism interchangeable, even Karl Marx,” Ruhle added.

Karl Marx was a German philosopher, who is widely regarded as the father of communism.

Ruhle then admitted that democratic socialists are calling for the enactment of socialist policies like free jobs for all and free health care through the democratic process.
