It's funny: "Real Socialists" have been quoted responding to the Republican resolution

On the Democrats, labeling them socialists. First elsewhere, now in the Colorado Independent. It's entertaining to me because they act like "Real Socialists" are this kind of exotic animal living on the veldt somewhere in a far off continent. In truth, if they wanted to see what "Real Socialists" thought about the Democratic Party they could ask Barbara Ehrenreich and Jim Hightower, both of them "Real Socialists" who also have the characteristic of having name recognition. People read Ehrenreich and Hightower's books. Maybe pointing out that these folks too are socialists would help convince folks that "Real Socialists" aren't this exotic, rarely seen, species, but something that more people are familiar with than is otherwise admitted.
