Meanwhile... At The Democratic Socialists Of America Conference

The Democratic Socialists of America National Convention was held this weekend in Atlanta,
Georgia... It was as 'entertaining' and solutions-based as you might imagine...

"Solidarity forever"

Except - as we note below - if you use gendered language, mumble, wear 'heavy' scents, or misuse doors??!!

As the moderator concluded her narrative:

“If we want to defeat capitalism, we are going to need a party that will organize working people to fight for the demands that we want, and to win socialism...”

A chipper young gentleman (who identified himself as James Jackson from Sacramento and said his preferred pronouns were he/him) stepped up to the mic offering what he called a "quick point of personal privilege"...

"Guys... can we please keep the chatter to a minimum? I’m one of the people who’s very prone to sensory overload. There’s a lot of whispering and chatter going on, it’s making it very difficult for me to focus. Please, can we just... I know we’re all fresh and ready to go, but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? "

The moderator replied, “Thank you, comrade.”

But, it appears the sensitive Sacramento-an's words triggered another 'comrade' who exclaimed (sounding angry):

“Point of personal privilege,” the person said.

“Please do not use gendered language to address everyone!”

“Ok,” the moderator replied, with what appeared to be a resigned look on her face.

But Sacamento-man was not done...

And that was not enough for these snowflakes. Convention rules were extended to include:

  • No “aggressive scents” in the quiet room

  • No misuse of doors

  • No interacting with cops

  • No talking to the press

This is our future 'Murica...
