Yeah during Ocasio-Cortez's recent appearence in Ypsilanti, MI with Abdul
El-Sayed candidate in Dem primary for Gov here, AOC substituted
"progressivism" for "socialism" I  her speech. My guess *was* that she did
this at the request of El-Sayed, who doesn't use the dem socialist label
but is supported by AOC and Sanders and shares their socdem platforms.
Maximillian Alvarez of the Baffler asked El-Sayed why he doesn't call
himself a socialist, but I don't think the response made it into Max's
write-up of AOC's joint appearances with him the other weekend.  I will try
to share the response shortly.
