A Washington D.C. woman saw an opportunity and wasted no time taking advantage of it. Marge McLaughlin is the chairwoman of the Washington D.C. chapter of the Democratic Socialists for America (DSA), and she is the woman of the day for her beautiful masterstroke.

The DSA defines itself as:

‘The largest socialist organization in the United States. DSA’s members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in American communities and politics.’

DSA also “fights for reforms” to “weaken the power of corporation” and increase the working people’s power:

  • Decrease the influence of money in politics
  • Empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy
  • Restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable.

When McLaughlin was out and about in Washington on New Year’s Day, she ran into the very conservative Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. She approached him, wishing him a Happy New Year, and asked him for a photo op. Then, she turned the tables on him.

As Cruz stood next to her, posing for the camera, she told him to smile and say not “cheese,” but:

‘Socialism’s going to win.’

Cruz answered her request with a blunt response:

‘It’s not going to.’

Then, McLaughlin looked straight into the camera and said:

‘Socialism’s going to win.’

The chairwoman posted her video with Cruz on Twitter. One of McLaughlin’s followers got into the fun by asking:

‘(Was it) really scary being that close to the Zodiac Killer.’

McLaughlin jumped right into the joke by replying:

‘It was!!! I’m shakin in my boots!”
