Despite a last minute effort by the media to invent an NHS scandal, with the aid of what appears to be a Russian influence network, Jeremy Corbyn and the British Labour party suffered an unprecedentedly catastrophic defeat.
Corbyn had been viewed by American lefties, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, as a model.
Now British voters have shown exactly where that model leads. A humiliating nationwide defeat.
British voters chose Brexit and gave Boris Johnson a solid majority to get it done. They rejected the radicalism and the proffered freebies touted by Labour. They said no to Corbyn anti-Semitism and his support for terrorism. And they reduced Labour to a fringe movement.
Labour didn’t just take a beating. It lost in its heartland, among the working class areas that Corbyn and his movement had hoped to reclaim, reversing the Blair revolution. Instead, Corbyn and his radicals are the ones who have been reversed to the ash heap of history.
The celebrity endorsements from everyone, from Alan Moore to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez failed to move them.
As the Democrats get into bed with radicals like Bernie Sanders, they might want to pay close attention to what just happened in Britain.
