Seattle Socialist-Elect Already Advocating a Worker Takeover Of Boeing

What could go wrong?

At a rally on Monday, Seattle’s newly-elected Socialist councilwoman, Socialist Kshama Sawant, accused Boeing of “economic terrorism” should the company decide not to build the new 777X in Puget Sound and urged the union members to “take over the factories.”

Her comments follow the members of the Machinists’ union in Puget Sound rejecting a Boeing offer that had been negotiated secretly with the company by IAM international officials out of the union’s headquarters near Washington, DC.

For years we’ve been told not to call progressives “socialists” because it’s WAY DIFFERENT OR SOMETHING but guess what Ms. Workers’ Revolution ran on to get elected?
