Detroitocrat (Detroit + Democrat)

The city of Detroit, Michigan, was mostly run by members of the Democratic Party in the 50 years before Detroit declared for bankruptcy on July 18, 2013. “Detroitocrat” can mean a Detroit “bureaucrat,” but the term has been used to mean Detroit “Democrat”—and not simply a Democrat from Detroit, but Democratic Party policies that lead to government bankruptcy.
“Detroitocrats” was used in July 2006, but this use appears to mean “Detroit bureaucrat.” “Detroitocrat” (Detroit + Democrat) has been in use since at least July 2013. The conservative blog Doug Ross @ Journal used “Detroitocrat Party” (for Democratic Party) on October 18, 2013.
Wikipedia: Detroit
Detroit /dɨˈtrɔɪt/ is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Michigan, and is the seat of Wayne County, the most populous county in the state. It is a primary business, cultural, financial and transportation center in the Metro Detroit area, a region of 5.2 million people, and serves as a major port on the Detroit River connecting the Great Lakes system to the Saint Lawrence Seaway. It was founded on July 24, 1701, by the French explorer and adventurer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac.
On July 18, 2013, Detroit filed the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history.

Maybe its a new type of party the left came up with. They should call it ‘Detroitocrats’.

NEWS FLASH: There Is No Split In the Republican Party
A political battle is coming for the GOP. And it is not between factions of the grassroots; it is instead between the grassroots and an out-of-touch leadership structure that is just as doomed as the Detroitocrat Party.

@kirstenpowers10 @thedailybeast Certainly not the Democrats’ Detroitification of America. #Detroitocrats

Deep Thoughts o’ the Day
It’s fun to call Democrats Detroit-o-crats and then watch their faces turn into mottled shades of red and purple once their reptilian brains process all of the syllables.
