Disasters are a true taste of socialism Why would anyone vote for that

Leftists always promise a paradise, while the results of their socialist agenda are always a disaster, why would anyone want to replicate that?

Take a look at any disaster area and note how it is always similar to end stage socialism.
Chaos, failing infrastructure, shortages, martial law and catastrophic effects are endemic to both situations. While the causes are somewhat different, the results are always the same, so why would anyone want this brought upon their society?

Selling Socialistic Slavery with promises while ignoring the costs.

Leftists are usually long on promises and short on funding sources when trying to sell their societal slavery. They will tout all the freebies without mentioning how they plan on paying for them. Worse yet, they pile promise upon promise of government goodies in a perverse competition to see who can spend the most of other people’s money without stating the source of their largess.

Meanwhile they skip over just how ‘From each according to his abilities’ will work without coercion in a free-society. Never mind that it’ll be impossible to pay for all of the goodies. We’re already $21 Trillion in the hole and the nation’s Socialist Left wants to dig even deeper.

It will be the ‘The Glorious world of next Tuesday’ don’t worry about who is going to foot the bill, they will gladly do it… knowing a bullet scarred wall awaits them if they don’t.

Reality is never to kind to progressive promises of paradise.

But something always gets in the way on the road to paradise. Basic psychological principles show that a behaviour will increase with a reward while a behaviour will decrease when punished. Many will be on board for the free health care, free college, free housing, free childcare and of course, free money. The problem is that someone has to pay for it at some point. Take other people’s money away from them and they will stop working as well. Soon enough, it all looks like a disaster area.

Scandinavian Socialism is a myth.

We can dispense with the ‘Nordic model’ red herring the Left is forever trotting out to somehow ‘prove’ the functionality of socialism. Small, culturally homogenous Scandinavian countries that can fund large welfare states with funds from natural resources and without the need for defense spending fail as proof that collectivism can work.  Most have higher ratings in liberty than the states, and some have stated flat out that they aren’t socialist.

Sorry Leftists, the ‘Mixed economy’ myth also proves socialism doesn’t work.

Then there is the ‘Mixed economy’ dodge that ironically proves the opposite of what it’s supposed to prove. Socialistic Slavery is very much akin to a poison in a biological system with higher dosages being ever more harmful. Socialism retards economic activity, with higher dosages having increased adverse effects. Rather than proving socialism can work, it proves the opposite.

A living being can survive with a certain amount of poison, just as a healthy economy can survive the societal poison of socialism, but that’s hardly an argument to increase the dosage. Eventually, both would succumb to the poison, so it would only make sense to flush it out of the system instead of making the situation far worse with more of the same.

Leftists promise paradise and it never comes to pass.

To hear it from the Left, their incredible ideology will usher in a Utopia of inestimable proportions. Free healthcare, free tuition, free income, free housing, free childcare, etc. etc. Never mind who is going to pay for all of this free stuff, everyone will dance and sing while unicorns prance around over rainbows in a perfect progressive paradise.

The reality of Socialism is quite different, resembling the short-term situation of a disaster area.

Anyone familiar with disaster situations and areas controlled by the Left cannot help but notice that they are eerily similar. While the causes are slightly different, the results are the same in both scenarios. Compare disaster areas to the promises of paradise made by the Left in trying to sell their socialist snake oil.

Shortages/Long lines.

Whenever a disaster is to befall an area or has taken place, people often have to queue up to get the most basic of necessities. Supplies of water, milk, toilet paper and petrol often run short causing panic amongst the populace. These are an everyday occurrence in a ‘worker’s paradise’. Since there is no incentive to produce, these basic consumer goods end up in short supply. Quite often a socialist government will parcel these items out in a bid to buy loyalty while punishing the opposition. In the case of the wondrous Leftist paradise of Venezuela, home of the world’s largest oil reserves, people even have to queue up to buy gas.  That socialist nation has continual shortages of basic necessities including water. Food is so scarce, people have to regularly rummage through the garbage to find something to eat. Many have lost an incredible amount of weight on the ‘Maduro diet’.

Failing infrastructure/Power outages.

Disasters will often result in power outages and infrastructure failure. In the case of a nation under socialism, the fundamental flaws of the that ideology cause these problems.

People fleeing the area.

Disaster situations will see multitudes of people leaving to get out of the danger zone. An area under the societal slavery of socialism will see people leaving to escape the destruction of Liberty endemic to the Left’s national agenda.

Looting/Crime.

The lack of law and order in a disaster situation will have some take advantage of the situation to steal from others. Collectivism is in effect an official policy of looting, with Liberty control, empowering both the government and the criminal element, with crime running rampant after the innocent have been disarmed.

Martial law/Death.

Often times, order is maintained with the military in a disaster area, as is often the case under a socialistic regime. Accidental deaths will often result from these situations. Oppression as well as deaths deliberately caused by said regimes are a staple of socialism.

The Key difference between a natural Disaster and the disaster of socialism.

The primary difference between a socialist system and a disaster is that the latter is a temporary condition. The people in the midst of a disaster only have endure it for a short time period. Those under the yoke of socialistic slavery have to endure it for years if not decades. Conditions will most often quickly improve in a disaster situation. Not so, for those suffering under socialism, who have to deal with the shortages, queuing up, failing infrastructure, power outages, crime, oppression and deliberate mass murder without relief.

These facts clearly indicate why those bent on attaining power under socialism never talk about it’s true reality. Their promises are always for something that never comes to fruition, for no one would willingly accept the permanent disaster of socialism if they were the least bit truthful of it’s final results.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.

Man fined £1,000 for outdated sense of humor

Man fined £1000 for outdated sense of humor

Jonathon Van Maren, a contributor for LifeSiteNews, recently stumbled across an article in the UK’s Edinburgh News about a construction worker who was arrested for “pointing and laughing” at a biological male who was dressed as a female (transgender woman).

[Author’s Note: It is impolite and unkind to point and laugh at others. This article is not an endorsement of such behavior.]

As Van Maren explained, a construction worker named Graham Spiers was walking with a group of friends. The group pointed and laughed while passing a transgender individual who, suspecting that his appearance had become the subject of ridicule, telephoned the police.

Spiers was arrested five day later.

Sherriff Robert Fife scolded Mr. Spiers’s sense of humor and actions:

Transgender insanity: Police now jailing people for laughing at men in women’s clothes

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/transgender-insanity-police-now-jailing-people-for-laughing-at-men-in-womenSheriff Robert Fife also piled on, informing Spiers that, “Your offensive comments were not funny at the time and are not funny now. Your children should grow up understanding gender differences and would be ashamed at your behavior that comes from a different era has no place in today’s society.” Fife then told Spiers that in addition to the cash he had to pay to the biological man for laughing at him, he also had to pay an additional fine of another five hundred pounds.

Graham Spiers was ordered to pay a total of £1,000 for his actions “from a different era,” 500 of which was paid to the complainant.

Of the actions by police and the court in this instance, Van Maren opined:

It is disgusting enough that law enforcement would arrest and charge someone for this triviality. That alone indicates that freedom in Scotland is truly dead. But the fact that law enforcement then lectured Spiers on being a throwback from a different age (that different era being about a decade ago, for the record) and telling him his children should be ashamed of him? And that Spiers was expected to cower and listen to this tongue-lashing from his betters so he could get re-educated and realize that men could now become women and that laughing at their attempts was forbidden by law? That should absolutely repulse any liberty-loving person and terrify everyone who values freedom.

My Take

Pointing and laughing at others is unquestionably unkind. I am repulsed at the thought of such outward meanness. However, that this behavior so would be considered illegal and result in one’s arrest is punitive at best, and is undoubtedly a waste a valuable time and resources. Furthermore, the punishment in this case is brazenly excessive.

This is yet another instance of big government run amok. The Founders knew the dangers of big government. It would be prudent of us to heed the Founders’ advice, lest we find ourselves in the position of Mr. Spiers: subjugated beneath the arbitrary boot of “benevolent” governmental authority.

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

There’s a trend that’s been quietly, consistently rearing its ugly head against the President of the United States and his supporters since before the 2016 election. We’ve seen it among unhinged journalists, virtue-signaling celebrities, and Democratic politicians. We’ve seen it manifest in the ugliest form of hatred – the common hate-hoax – and it’s doing more to divide America than the source of the perpetrators’ anger.

They hate President Trump. They hate the people who got him elected. The hate the idea of making America great again because as much of the MAGA agenda comes to pass, they’re learning they’ve been wrong the whole time. I know first hand. I’ve been proven wrong myself.

No, I’m not a hate-hoaxer, but I’ve been against the President to varying degrees for over three years now. Before he officially won the GOP nomination in 2016, I opposed him because I felt he would do too much damage while delivering only a moderate amount of good policies. He wasn’t as bad as John Kasich or Jeb Bush, but we had Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul as better candidates. Nevertheless, he won the nomination, prompting me to spend the final leg of the 2016 election without a horse in the race. I didn’t like the idea of Trump being President, but under no circumstances did I want Hillary Clinton to be President, either.

100% crowdfunded news. Please help.

After he won, I became a cautious but hopeful watcher. While we worked on alternatives to bring limited-government federalism to the forefront of local, state, and national politics, I took a case-by-case stance on the President himself. When he did well, I praised him. When he did poorly, I criticized him. This stance has remained until this day, though there have been times when I was more supportive or more critical, depending on the policy discussion of the day. Tax and bureaucratic cuts – good. Tariffs and bump stock bans – bad. The recent cave on the border omnibus – very bad. Most foreign policy moves (leaving Iran deal, leaving Paris accords, moving embassy to Jerusalem) – very good.

Unfortunately, it seems many on the left have been unwilling to recognize even the remotest possibility anything the President is doing is good. What’s worse is that some have been so aggressive in their desire to prove their point that they’ve pretended to be victims for the sake of getting their “victims’ perks” of love and affection from their peers while painting anyone wearing a MAGA hat as bigoted and hateful.

Thus, the anti-MAGA hate hoax was born and it’s been so prominent over the last two-and-a-half years, one must wonder how mainstream media and Democrats became so gullible that they fall for it every single time.

Andy Ngo at Quillette put together a comprehensive list of hate hoaxes that leftists have perpetrated to paint the President and his supporters as racists. It’s absolutely stunning when you see the magnitude of the hatred – THEIR hatred – that makes them willing to tell bald-faced lies just to prove the movement they oppose is as bad as they think it is.

I’ve had ideological disagreements with nearly every presidential candidate (let alone every President) since I became an adult. There’s nothing wrong with disagreement as long as one is willing to not be blinded in one direction or the other. There are plenty who blindly follow President Trump to approximately the same degree that supporters blindly followed President Obama. The herd mentality seems to have become the way of the political world in America for our last two presidents. But that blind devotion is simply an annoyance. The blind hatred that drives people to commit these hoaxes is far more dangerous.

It’s likely when the details are fully revealed regarding Jussie Smollett’s hate-hoax, it was driven more by a narcissistic desire to advance his career rather than pure hatred for the MAGA crowd or the President, but obviously the latter hatred played a role in his decision-making process. This type of action is never acceptable. We have enough outrage in America. There’s no need to manufacture even more for false reasons.

It’s time for the unhinged left to stop assuming every MAGA supporter is racist and start asking how the actions of those on their side of the political aisle drove massive amounts of people to support President Trump. Perhaps then, they’ll realize the hatred is coming mostly from them.
