Dem Mayor Says He ‘Can’t Stand’ With Socialists, Becomes Republican

After being elected as a Democrat, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee said on Fox & Friends that he’s switching to the Republican Party.

Lee argued the Democrats’ “elitist” and “socialist” agenda is not one he “can stand with anymore.”

MAYOR JOHN LEE: They had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist Party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with anymore…

The working class, or working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore. It all has to do with the elitists and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country of the future.

When you’re a pro-life Democrat, a pro-gun Democrat, and you’re a very conservative person, that’s not really well known in the Democratic Party anymore. And so for me to hang on as long as I did, hoping the party would change, it didn’t, it got worse.

So therefore, I found a new place that I can put my allegiance to and help. Once again, forget about the last eight years. It’s the next four years that predict the future.

In an op-ed for the Daily Caller, former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright wrote that he left the Democratic Party due to the second impeachment of Trump, saying that it only serves to exacerbate the political divide.

“For years, Democrats like me have watched with increasing alarm as our own political leaders and activists … have used an endless stream of hateful, violent and ultimately un-American rhetoric that has resulted in billions of dollars in economic damage and given birth to a violent national movement,” Wright wrote.

Wright said the “modern Left” is infused with “systemic hatred” that has “inflamed profound political divisions and the predictable outcomes that come with them, most especially violence and destruction.”

“The most egregious example came in the summer of 2020, with Leftist race riots that cost upwards of $2 billion in damages,” he said, adding that Democratic leaders didn’t offer condemnations when “fires raged,” property was vandalized, and lives were destroyed.

Wright pointed out that democratically elected officials incited violence in 2020.

“A woman in New York City threw a Molotov cocktail at four police officers sitting in their vehicle during a riot” and “were unharmed only because the gas bomb failed to ignite,” he said.

“Next, a group of rioters in Seattle tried to seal up the doors of a police precinct and ignite the building on fire, burning cops alive,” he said.

“In all, over 700 federal, state, and local law enforcement officers sustained injuries in violence perpetrated by Leftist rioters. That includes retired St. Louis police Captain David Dorn, who died defending the city he loved from those encouraged by the Democrat Party’s incitement,” he added.

“For Democrats like me, we have no choice: we have to leave. But where do we go, politically, now that our party can no longer be salvaged? The answer is to be found in the exit data from the 2020 election: We’re already leaving, it turns out, and joining the new, populist Republican Party,” he said.

  1. At least be a man about it and resign and run as a Republican. I to align with the Republicans but I would not run as a candidate in one party and switch after the election just to get elected. Only thing you prove to people is you cannot be trusted with their vote.

  2. Thank you sir for finally seeing the light and making a sane decision based on reality and FACT and TRUTH!

  3. It’s about time that the rank and file members of the Democratic Party opened there eyes as to what’s going on within that party.

  4. FINALLY!!!!
    A Mayor with some sense !

  5. Enough with the math. Where is my COMMENT???!!!!

  6. This is the best explanation of the Left & a reason to leave, I’ve heard in a while! It also answered my question, what party is he in! Living in Reno, Nev. we don’t always know the affiliation of Candidates,for offices in Nev. Especially since las Vegas thinks it should run Our Whole State!! Most of thosw came from California, Like our so-called Governor! Who won’t even live in the Governors Mansion in Carson City !! He come & visits it to hand out candy on Halloween! The DEMONCRAP Californians have RUINED the State of Nevada!!

  7. Why, did you allow the main stream media to lie and didn’t speak up ? Why did you not speak up at the ridiculous impeachment’s why have you allowed the Biden family to be so heinously corrupt and haven’t spoken up , why haven’t you cried out about the election fraud, why haven’t you screamed bloody murder over our borders , the inequities of our citizens mandates while illegals have none, why haven’t you screamed about the loss of life and the gift of weaponry in Afghanistan ? Why now , geez

  8. It truly surprises me that we’re not seeing more of this happening. I’ve often wondered what happened to the conservative Democrats in our country. We all understand the fear of speaking out against the socialists that will invariably scream racist at anyone who dares to disagree with anything they opine or call for. I’m glad to see a responsible individual recognizing the failures of the leftists and is willing to make the necessary changes. I wouldn’t be surprised if we actually do see more of this after the next election cycle. Surely the massive wave of democrats to republicans will leave many with the realization that the policies of liberalism simply doesn’t work. Although I would have reservations with voting for anyone that would wait until the people have given a clear referendum after elections rather than before. In the end all conservatives knew the failed policies adopted by the socialist left was a dead end. It’s truly beyond ridiculous that so many so called normal thinking people stood silently by while the radicals in their party tried over and over to destroy the country from within. So many have lost much too much to just think oh well now they understand. I’ll never believe they didn’t know what would happen when demonizing police Christians whites and conservatives. This is not the first time we have seen this kind of nonsense. Let’s hope it’s the last.
    God Bless America

  9. Beware, once a Democrat, always a Democrat. One thing a Democrat does best, is lie,lie,lie.

  10. I hope everyone starts to see the light. We’re headed down to the path of socialism. If you like your freedom jump off that democratic train. Help save our Republic.

  11. 0 give me a break…if no socialism..need to close almost ALL cooperative endeavors. libraries, schools police and fire stations and departments, highway departments…these are ALL socialist undertakings…how shortsighted and du
    many dramatic is this fool?

  12. I’m heartened to see that several intelligent people are leaving the party that is trying to deliberately destroy our country starting with our children and completely undermining all that is good in my country. I almost lost my faith in people who are afraid of being confronted because of their conservative beliefs. The word RACIST is applied by EVERY DEMOCRAT toward EVERY PERSON who dares to disagree with their insane policies. I wouldn’t care if some idiot called me a racist because I know who I am and that is not a racist. But I don’t believe that the government should take total control of our lives including how my money is supposed to be given to others who want an inconvenient pregnancy removed or people who choose not to work and live off MY TAXES. Nor do I believe that everytime the freaking communist leaning media decides to make a myrter out of a criminal who was killed during their resistance to arrest, that it gives a mob of thieves a license to pillage and burn our cities.
    The Democrats have given a license to do these things to justify the fact that the Dutch slavers brought people here to be sold hundreds of years ago. The unending cry about slavery is bullshit. My family didn’t get here on the Mayflower. The waited ten years to get here legally and were treated far worse than anyone. They didn’t bitch and cry for hundred years, they went to work in the most deplorable conditions and faced hate for their native culture being different. In time, they and their children loved America a n d so did their children and then our children. WE ARE AMERICANS, not Italian Americans, Americans pure and true to this country that gave us the opportunities that helped us raise ourselves above the poverty line. So let’s all thank God tht we’re here Omar. And stop complaining nd trying to Change the place that took you in and gave you the opportunity to BE IN OUR CONGRESS. Get it aoc? You’re here at our sufferance. If you continue to damage our country with your hate filled rhetoric, we can not only vote you out, we can call you HATERS and racists against White people. AMEN enough said.

    • THANK YOU FOR YOUR TRUTHFUL COMMENTS. ALL OUR IMMIGRANTS WHO CAME HERE, DID IT LEGALLY, WENT THROUGH THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS NECESSARY TO BECOME A AMERICAN CITIZEN. THEY ALL WENT THRU ISSUES, BUT MANAGED TO KEEP THEIR ETHNIC VALUES IN T HEIR HOMES. Omar and her entire FAMILYwere brought into our REPUBLIC under false PRETENSES. SHE WAS MARRIED TO HER OWN BROTHER, IT HAS BEEN PROVEN,,,WHY IS SHE STILL HERE?? WHY IS SHE STILL IN OFFICE??

    • Loved what you wrote! 100% correct! I’m tired of our country being destroyed by these parasites!
      The “government” rewards criminals and punished those in blue whom protect us .
      Don’t commit the crime or associate with those criminals.
      I’m sick of this “racist” bull shit too! Get over yourself and become part of the human race and this country. No body owes you anything and enough of color instead of qualifications.
      Why isn’t the NFL and NBA labeled racist against whites. I’m tired of the poor me sponsored commercials and “you owe me” bull crap!

  13. WELL AT LEAST A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN FINALLY STANDS UP AND ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THE LEFT ARE SOCIALISTS! CONGRATS TO THIS MAYOR..
