AMAZING! DNC Chair STUMPED – Can’t Explain Difference Between Democrat Party and Socialism (VIDEO)

Things got very awkward today when Chris Matthews asked DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz what the difference was between the modern Democratic Party and Socialism.
wasserman schultz socialism
We haven’t seen that dazed look since Rachel Dolezal was busted as a fraud.

Wasserman Schultz was speechless.
Completely stumped.
Couldn’t answer.
Then changed the subject.

Because we all know there is no difference between today’s Democrat Party and the radical Socialists in Venezuela or Argentina.


Chris Matthews: Will Sanders speak at the Democrat convention, win or lose? Do you want to have him up there as a Socialist representing the Democratic Party?… You want him up there? You want him on the floor of the convention?

Debbie Wasserman Schulz: Bernie Sanders has been a good Democrat. He caucuses with the Democrats.

Matthews: Should he speak? Speak at prime-time?

Wasserman Schultz: Of course he should speak.

Matthews: In prime-time with everybody watching? (laughing)

Wasserman Schultz: Of course Bernie Sanders should speak…

Matthews: What’s the difference between the Democratic Party and Socialist?

Wasserman Schultz: (Speechless) (Laugh)

Matthews: I used to think there’s a big difference. What do you think it is?

Wasserman Schultz: Wuh… The difference between…

Matthews: Like Democrat Hillary Clinton and Socialist Bernie Sanders?… Well what’s the big difference between the Democrat Party and Socialist. You’re chairman of the Democratic Party. Tell me the difference between you and a Socialist?…

Wasserman Schultz: (She won’t answer) The relevant debate we will be having over the course of this campaign is what’s the difference between a Democrat and a Republican.

Even the DNC Chair knows there is NO DIFFERENCE between the Democratic Party and Socialism.

  • DarkQuark

    There ain’t much difference between most (not all) Republicans and socialists at this point. Welcome to the Uniparty.

  • CurtNewton

    What surprises me is that CHRIS MATTHEWS asks the question on an MSNBC ‘news’ program. I would expect a Fox news reader to ask such questions but Matthews? Debbie Deer-in-the-headlights now knows what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a gotcha question.

  • mg4us

    The difference is that Socialists are up front and out about their desire to have the government control all economic activity for the so-called common good and social issues including the redistribution of wealth.

    The DEMONcRATs on the other hand tries to nefariously control, through the government and NGOs (non-government organizations like PP, Acorn, Sierra Club, etc), not just economic activity but thoughts, speech and morals (or lack of morals).

    A true Socialist wants economic policies that equalizes basic living needs whether they be in education, housing, healthcare buy taking money from everyone’s wages & earnings at confiscatory levels while DEMONcRATs want freebies paid for by the sweat & labor of others with DEMONcRAT leaders as elitist slave masters exempt from their own policies so as to live better than the people they represent. . that is why Congress and the President were exempt from Obamacare rules!

  • mg4us

    Exactly. .and the DEMONcRATs approach to Socialism is starting to border on Communism

    And as Margret Thatcher once said: Socialism is good until you run out of other people’s money to pay for it.

    Today’s DEMONcRATs have fixed that. . .They just borrow and print more fake funny money (Quantitative Easing or QE). . .and then the supply is limitless as long as the masses work more for less and their standard of living declines. . .

  • ZaphodEpicurus

    The difference is that the Democrats are communists.

  • OldSailor

    I’m surprised this made it to air. Watch for it to be scrubbed from the internet and get no coverage anywhere else except perhaps FOX.

  • Rufus

    That was an unfair question.
    Poor Debbie doesn’t have a fully functioning brain.

  • blackfeather

    debbiedowner showing her mensa qualities again? FAIL.

  • moron

    Easy. The Democrat Party is much more corrupt.

  • lamb4usa

    DWS is a disgusting pig of a woman. She is as ugly as she is brain dead. I wish her mother would have visited PP before giving birth to this spawn.

  • mg4us

    Is this the FACE of the DEMONcRAT party????
    Debbie Whatz-her-nam Schulz?

    With a face like that. . and an IQ like hers. . I would vote the opposition. . can’t be any clearer!!

  • mg4us

    Matthews forgot the most important question for her:

    Debbie, given your district is made up of so many Jewish people (and those who vote twice in both NY and FL), why do you support OBAMA’s NUKE DEAL for Iran as Iran’s Leader has very clearly and publicly stated he intends to wipe Israel off the map and chants Death to Israel Death to America?

    This is the best deal Lurch Ketschup-face Kerry could do? To have us killed in 10 years?

  • Curmudgeon

    The difference is obvious. A socialist wants to spend all of your money on entitlement programs while a democrat wants to spend all of your money on entitlement programs. Wait…

  • ohio granny

    She was blindsided. She never expected such a question from Tingles.

  • wasitsomethingisaid

    Trick question,there is no difference.

  • johnfarmingdale

    It is like talking to Satan himself. It wont answer questions where the answer isn’t going to be good and it is very deceptive.

    deceptive (dɪˈsɛptɪv) adj
    1. likely or designed to deceive; misleading: appearances can be deceptive.


    I love when the democrats always end a phony, lying “line” like — “…Bernie Sanders …appeals ….”with the American People”

    Quit painting the “American People with a broad brush…you communist (s) !!

  • Moses1967

    All laughing aside, there may be a difference. The Democrat Party is a Transnational Fascist party partnered with corporations such as General Electric. Is Bernie Sanders also a Transnational Fascist? Is there anyone that reads this comment that knows (or cares) anything about Bernie Sanders?

  • bicentennialguy

    The difference? Socialists are honest and upfront about their intentions. Democrats lie about theirs.

  • dabbobean

    I thought dems wanted to save a little of the money to line their pockets and grease their campaign donors.

  • dabbobean

    Gotta give it to Tingles…..that was a damn good question.
    And in DWS’s defense there was no answer that would not have been damning.
    There has to be a campaign commercial in that clip for someone

  • dabbobean

    DWS is now feel’in the “Bern”.

  • ridgerunner

    Right on, right on, right on.

  • Dear Ms. Wasserman-Shultz, the correct answer is simple: “Socialist are more honest and upfront about their desire to redistribute wealth and to ensure the government is the provider and arbitrator of health care, economic subsistence to citizens and managing the economic structure (mobility) of citizens. Democrats on the other hand like to play the “game” of telling voters that we are for the “average person” while keeping the goals we have, which to be honest Chris, are not that dissimilar to what Sen. Sanders would like hidden and at arms length from public discussion”. Simple.

  • WildBill0283

    This might teach DWS to read the questions sent to her before the interview.

  • BurmaShave2

    A socialist is a socialist who says that he is a socialist.

    A Democrat is a socialist who says that he is a Democrat.

  • Ticked Parent

    The answer is………….none of course

  • burt

    Communist shot people they disagree with. Democrats say they are not for shooting people, but they lie.

  • mumzieistired


  • blucord124

    No, they are for the government shooting people but the citizens can’t shoot back.

  • luckyintheorder

    think matthews admission that he thought there was a BIG difference between Dem’s and Socialist’s explains why Americans vote Democrat. No clue what they truly stand for. destruction of the middle class, a perennial political elite and legislation for expedience.

  • J K Brown

    Socialists favor the office holder. Democrats favor… No, that’s not it.

  • angrywetcat ©

    I still believe the hag is just Carrot Top after a sex change….

  • J K Brown

    I think I’ve got it.

    Socialists want the State to own and control the means of production, capital stock.

    Democrats want the State to control the means of production through complex regulatory schemes and for the State to have a primacy claim to 40-95% of the income generated by the privately owned and maintained capital.

  • Anonymous Guy

    This bug eyed commie is a disgrace. Shame on her and the lemmings that voted for the traitorous self loather.

  • nara


    Not that we need another Obama supporter embarrassing the
    presidential office again. We need to vote these bums out in 2016.

  • Maggie


  • fedupMan

    Debbie is the gift that keeps on giving every time she opens her mouth. The MSMedia have already buried this jewel of a statement and concentrate on Cecil the Lion to suck/bury Debs dumber than mud statement.

  • FLSteamer

    Perhaps Tingles The Drunk is auditioning for the new lineup. Since they ditched Horsehead Ed, Toure The Racism Whack-A-Mole and Crystal “now appearing on stage 2, guys!” Ball and a few other nobody, Tingles may be looking over his shoulder. We all know that Catfish ain’t going anywhere. He’s bought and paid for!

  • Patty

    I never thought I would say this in a million years but thanks Matthews, that’s funny, and really sad at the same time!!

  • SomethingWicked

    recently heard a Democrat say ” I don’t think someone who Admits to
    being a Socialist can get the nomination” The all KNOW they are
    Socialist, they just don’t want to admit to it. I’ve also noticed that conservatives are more than willing to say they are conservative, how often
    do you hear liberals admit to being liberals?

  • SomethingWicked

    haven’t you heard the going rate for a hair cut is $600…ask Hillary

    If only he’d said ‘ progressive ‘ instead. ‘ Democrat ‘ went the way of Woody Wilson.

  • I’m so glad you support Planned Parenthood’s mission! It’s nice that there’s a conservative out there who can think for himself instead of just regurgitating conservative BS without actually investigating the issue at hand. Bravo.

  • Patty

    and that is why Obama became president. Obama voters didn’t know the difference but I would suspect that even if they did, he would still be president.

  • ZaphodEpicurus

    There will be a whole lot of shooting in America’s future.

  • Obomination

    Perhaps they lie about not being socialists as well.

  • ericpedersen

    I bet I could make a killer off of “I’m a right wing extremist and proud.” Tshirts

  • Obomination

    Communists lie, and guess what they lie about not being communists. Comrade Mathews understands the immense importance of this lie.

  • OldSailor

    Dippy Debbie’s dumber than a bag of hammers, much dumber.

  • Patriot

    Easy answer , both are baby killers!

  • gmchat

    The difference is that democrats wear white hoods and socialist wear red hoods.

  • American Patriot

    Actually, she’s more like Medusa from Greek Mythology.

    Medusa had a hideous face and snakes for hair. Once a victim looked directly into her eyes, they immediately turned to stone.

    When I look at whatshername schlitz, my blood turns to ice in my veins….(shudder)

  • JR

    The difference? That’s easy. Socialists don’t hide who they are.

  • Antileft

    That’s because there aren’t any differences between the Democrats and the socialists.

  • Antileft

    Socialists aren’t necessarily honest and upfront about their intentions. That’s why they have to implement their policies in small doses disguised as liberalism.

  • Antileft

    Amen to that.

  • sovereign bastard
  • Jason Smith

    This man named Cait… er Debbie, was never the sharpest knife in the drawer anyway…

  • No Hillary

    Even a DemokRATic operative like Matthews knows the DNC has been hijacked by the most leftist socialists in America. The unions and commies are running the DNC>

  • No Hillary

    You nailed this very clear assessment of the facts about Dimocrats and Socialists.

  • No Hillary

    The only reason DWS gets reelected from her Florida District is that it is mainly liberal Jewish voters and low IQ voters.

    If Jewish Americans have not figured out that obama is giving a green light to Iran to annihilate them, then they are beyond help.

  • No Hillary

    And defend death row criminals.

  • No Hillary

    The IRS would be all over you.

  • No Hillary

    Obviously the MSDNC liberal talking points is not getting them viewers. I personally have emailed and written their advertisers to stop supporting them.
    Maybe if more of us would do that, then MSNBC would shut down.

    Democrat, progressive, liberal, socialist — all mean the exact same thing.

  • Beedogz

    I bet she hasn’t paid under $300 for a haircut for a decade. Like all politicians, she spends money all the time – lobbyists and bribes replenish the pot as needed.

  • Roscoe

    Debbie Washerwoman Shultz. Perhaps she is SGT. Shultz’s daughter from Hogan’s Heroes. Of course the correct answer is that there is no difference at all except the DemoRATZ mix in a little Communism with Atheist as the official religion. And while I have your attention they are the chief supporters of the Planned Parenthood butcher shop and associated meat markets for your purchasing of fresh baby parts. Get them while they’re hot!

  • Book’m

    She doesn’t know the meaning of the word…no really, I don’t think she even knows the meaning of the word ‘the’. The fact that she remembers to breathe without cue cards is a miracle all by itself.

  • Scott Hargrove

    I don’t think he meant it as a gotcha question. I think he sees the PR problem with an avowed Socialist on a Democrat stage. He was trying to give DWS an opportunity to make some sort of distinction, probably assuming that she had anticipated that question, and believing that it would be better if she could answer it in a friendly interview.

  • MicahStone

    Example of action by tyranny…

    House of Representatives Passes Bill in 15 Minutes to Revoke Americans’ Passports without Due Process

    The “war on terror” is a status quo fraud perpetuated by the
    oligarch-controlled mainstream media and authoritarian members of
    Congress as a way to systematically strip the American public of its
    freedom and civil rights in the name of fighting an outside enemy. This
    tried and true tactic has been used by statists throughout history, and
    history is indeed repeating itself here in the “land of the free.”

    Moving along, today’s story is so incredible it’s almost hard to
    believe. It appears our so-called “representatives” recently took
    fifteen minutes to pass a bill that allows the Secretary of State to
    revoke Americans’ passports with no due process. Did you know about
    this? Well neither did I, and what’s worse, these members of Congress
    are so cowardly they passed the bill with a voice vote to avoid going on
    record. Talk about anti-American.

    The Secretary of State may refuse to issue a passport [or revoke a previously issued one] to any individual whom the Secretary has determined has aided, assisted, abetted, or otherwise helped an organization the Secretary has designated as a foreign terrorist organization

    How does today’s John Kerry or tomorrow’s John Bolton make such a determination? The bill doesn’t say.

    Don’t we have laws, courts and due process in this country? Guess not.

    Thank you!

  • Diogenes

    I was stunned watching her failure to answer this simple question. How hard is it to say, “Socialists favor government ownership of the means of production. She doesn’t favor the government taking over all the steel mills, the airlines, the trains, the car companies, maufacturing etc etc etc. ” And then ask the interviewer ” Do you favor social security, student loans, unemployment pay, the polio vaccine, VA health care, museums, medicare, the GI Bill, the FDA, corporate bailouts, public libraries, police and fire etc etc. Those are all funded by the public at large and you don’t have to pay in to benefit. Everyone like the socialist programs that benefit them and hates those that help others.

  • zencycler

    The top 10 differences between Democrats & Socialists.

    10. Democrats get coffee at Starbucks, Socialists drink herbal tea at home.
    9. Both want full control of businesses – but it’s like the question of lease vs. own.
    8. Democrats are better at brand marketing.
    7. Ugly feminist Democrats will date Socialists, but not visa versa.
    6. Democrats have a mental illness that’s treatable. Socialists, not so much.
    5. Guys won’t pretend being lefty to pick up good looking Socialist chicks – there aren’t any.
    4. Skeletons of Democrat bad deeds are mostly buried here, Socialist, mostly over there.
    3. Democrats fund and join movements like OWS, Socialists just start them.
    2. A Democrat president would pardon a Socialist white-collar criminal, but not visa versa.

    And the number 1 difference between Democrats and Socialists is ….

    1. If we ever elect an openly Socialist president, then we know for sure the US is doomed.

  • Yep, tyrants wanting total control.

  • Bruce’s sister?

  • Obama became president because of voter fraud and nothing else.

  • Laurie Wight

    Well, hello! Wasserman Shultz, chosen-
    “Communism is Judaism. The Jewish Revolution in Russia was in 1918” (H. H. Beamish, speech in New York, 1937).

    “Some call it Marxism — I call it Judaism” (Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, The American Bulletin, May 15, 1935).

    “Communism and Judaism are one and the same” (Hilary Cotter, Cardinal Minszenty, The Truth About His Real “Crime,” p. 6).

    “There is nothing else in Communism — a Jewish conspiracy to grab the whole world in their clutches; and no intelligent man in the world can find anything else, except the Jews, who rightly call it for themselves a “paradise on earth.”

    “Jews are eager to bring Communism, because they know what it is and what it means. It is because Communism has not been fought for what it really is — a Jewish scheme invented by Jews — that it has progressed against all opposition to it. We have fought the smoke-screen presented by Jewish dialecticians and publicists, refusing to fight the inventor, profiteer and string-puller. Because Christians and Gentiles have come to fear the Jews, fear the truth, and they are paralyzed by the paradoxical slogans shouted by the Jews.”

    “The mob” believe Communism is dead and that Russia is not a force to be reckoned with. Don’t you believe it. Their apparent demise is a ruse” (Adrien Arcand, Canadian political leader in a speech, New York, October 30, 1937).

    “It would be the greatest mistake, certainly, to think that concessions mean PEACE. Nothing of the kind. Concessions are nothing but a new form of war” (“Jew” V.I. Lenin).

    Dmitri Manuilski, a Soviet Diplomat, revealed in 1947 the Communists’ intention to brainwash the American public: “We will offer the Christian world unheard of peace overtures, and these nations, stupid and decadent, will leap at the chance to be our friends; they will willingly cooperate in their own destruction. Then, when their guard is down, and they have gone to sleep, we will smash them with our clenched fist.”

    The “Jew” Mikhail Gorbachev (Kahn) declared in a speech at the seventieth anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution: “. . . In October 1917, we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, a world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road.”

    Speaking to the Soviet Politburo on November 1987, he stated: “Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep. We want to accomplish three things:

    * One, we want the Americans to withdraw conventional forces from Europe. * Two, we want them to withdraw nuclear forces from Europe. * Three, we want the Americans to stop proceeding with the Strategic Defense Initiative.”

    Probably, and that’s why we need Trump.
