Democratic mayor says he's switching parties over 'socialism' but voted for Trump twice



By Oliver Willis -April 6, 2021 5:00 PM

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee is anti-abortion, has an A+ rating from the NRA, and is a loyal Trump fan.

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee appeared on Fox News on Tuesday to announce that he had switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican — even though he brags on his website that he voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020.

Lee told Steve Doocy of "Fox & Friends" that his party switch had been prompted by "card-carrying socialists" who have taken over the Democratic 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," Lee said.

So your going for the fascists' mode dude, think I' will stay in the democratic party, at least our party didn't kill people at the US Capital, or try to overturn an election ...........

2. American Independent is the White Supremacists Party

Of course he voted for Trump twice. It's not about "socialism", it's all about White Supremacy. Period. Full.Stop.

Perhaps you meant that the GOP is the White Supremacists' Party.

10. That is precisely what 'm referring to.

Did I misread the article? Did the mayor not say he joined the American Independent Party? I do have vision issues, I might have miss read the piece.

11. I see now the mistake I made

But you'll forgive me for expecting the American Independent to be related to the American Independent Party, which is a White Supremacists party in California anyway.

The terribly unfortunate aspect of the name of that party, is the fact that younger generation voters who want to simply register as an Independent assumes the AIP to be as such.

Makes me wonder why a progressive site would assume that name? hmm. maybe they're too young to know the association.

15. He was obviously never a Democrat.

Let the pig label himself accurately as GQP so voters can choose better next time.
