Lanhee Chen: 2020: A Contest Between Socialism and Capitalism

Twenty of the Democrats vying to be our next President finished two nights of debates, where it became very clear that the energy of the party was behind policies that would push America to the far left—making the Democrats of the past look like conservatives.

Several leading Democrats—including Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders—endorsed single-payer health care plans that would kick over 160 million Americans off the private health coverage they currently have and enjoy. Still others, like Julian Castro and Cory Booker, called for decriminalizing the act of crossing the U.S. border without authorization. And Warren led the charge for a multi-trillion dollar plan to forgive student debt.

Meanwhile, President Trump is gleefully waiting—essentially unopposed—to run against one of these Democrats next year. He’ll make the election a contest between socialism and capitalism. And I have a pretty good idea of which side of that argument will emerge victorious.

Medved: Distorting the True Nature of “Concentration Camps”


Most leaders of the Jewish community reacted with appropriate indignation to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez using the terms “concentration camps” and “never again” to compare Trump’s border policies to Hitler’s holocaust.

 An LA Times Op-Ed, however, outrageously supports her with the headline: “I’m Jewish and I don’t say this lightly: ‘Never Again’ is right now in America.”

 The opinion piece by David Ulin shrugs at the fact that the two key purposes of Nazi concentration camps—providing slave labor and perpetrating mass killing—have never been witnessed at border detention facilities. 

 Nazis ripped millions from their homes against their will, but today’s asylum seekers left home by choice to find refuge in America. But failure to welcome all-comers hardly amounts to Nazism. To claim otherwise distorts the true nature of the Holocaust and undermines our ability to resist real fascist dangers should they ever arise.
