Millennial Democratic Socialists don’t even know what socialism really is

Published

on

If they were informed, many of a certain generation would oppose the organised evil that is socialism.

A new video from Tim Pool makes the very important point that many millennia’s support socialism because they simply do not know enough about the subject. He based the discussion on an article from Human Events on the same topic.

Mr. Pool is somewhat of an enigma, in many ways he’s like a student in class that you see gradually learning an important lesson over time. While professing support for Liberty and Economic Freedom he will still on occasion offer support for somewhat far Left concepts that would be the death of Liberty. Never the less, it’s important to hear a variety of voices to avoid dwelling in an echo chamber.

Millennials and others have been sold a bill of goods on a concept that is 2,400 years old. This is because Leftists focus solely on the positive aspects of the ideology. The ‘to each according to his needs’ side of the private property redistribution equation instead of the liberticidal oppression where everyone suffers under the socialistic enslavement.

It’ll cost trillions in other people money, so what?

The lynch pin of all the vote-buying promises in the crucially important question ‘Who’s going to pay for it?’. As reported on The Daily Wire, a woman asked this of Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (CA). She had no answer aside from Orwellian doublespeak:

“Can I ask you a question?” the woman asked Harris. “I understand that you are advocating health care for everyone.”

“Yes, ma’am,” Harris responded.

“Who’s going to pay for it?” the woman asked.

“Well, we’re going to pay for it,” Harris replied. “Because right now, let me tell you something, we’re all paying for health care for everyone–“

“No, we’re not,” the woman responded as she became irritated with Harris. “No, we’re not.”

“Leave our health care system alone,” the woman told Harris. “We don’t want you to mess with it.”

[Emphasis added]

Then we have the example provided by Democrat presidential candidate Senator (VT) as reported on Twitchy, socialist presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders articulated how socialists feel about your hard-earned money during a campaign event on Saturday.

“Gonna cost a little bit of money, so what?” Bernie Sanders

It’s all about the free goodies – free college, free health care, free housing, free food, free money. Never mind who is going to foot the bill, it’s going to be other people’s money, so what?  Our comrades on the national socialist Left can belch forth all manner of rationalizations for why it’s okay to steal someone else’s property. They don’t care if they have to take it by force, somehow don’t deserve their hard-earned private property. They tend to forget that they can never fulfill grandiose promises of immeasurable largess.

The article from Human Events made several salient points on the subject:

Support for socialism is unevenly distributed across majors. Support is greatest among the majors least likely to study how economic systems function. Seventy-eight percent of philosophy majors, 64 percent of anthropology majors, and 58 percent of English majors hold favorable views of socialism. Yet, in the disciplines most likely to study how economic systems function, economics and finance, 61 percent and 63 percent of students respectively, hold unfavorable views of socialism.

In my teaching experience, only a small percentage of students correctly identify socialism as an economic system that abolishes private property in the major factors of production and replaces it with collective ownership. This was also true of the millennial socialists I met at the conference last year.

A large portion of self-identified socialists didn’t identify their version of socialism with abolishing private property and replacing it with collective ownership and central planning. Instead, they adopted the socialist label while simply taking positions to the left of the Democratic Party on a wide variety of political issues.

[Emphasis added]

Later on in the article, the author relates the all too common refrain of Democratic socialists that ‘socialism has never been tried before’. This is an ad hoc rescue of simply making up a new criteria for the definition of socialism that conveniently excludes socialist nations of the past or present.

The Bottom-line.

The article and the video illustrate a very important point, that the government indoctrination centers [Government schools and Universities] are only giving people half the story. In much, the same way that the propaganda onslaught from the national socialist Media selectively emphasised ‘White supremacy’ over the fact that the Dayton mass murderers was on the far-Left fringe. Both suppositions can be true, but only one was repeated ad nauseam to push a certain false narrative.

One’s historic perspective begins with the day they are born, this is unfortunate because it is only after a socialist nation falls that it’s true death toll emerges. Those born after the fall of the USSR fail to comprehend it’s organised evil. Even those born after WWII don’t realized that Authoritarian Socialist Left took the cue from the USSR and banished the phrase ‘National socialism’ and emphasized the term Nazi or Fascist as a way of perpetuating the Leftist lie that the Nazis weren’t socialist.

Those born after these horrific events can have the misguided notion that socialism can be implemented without an iron fist of oppression or that it can even work. This is why Leftists try to complete the deception with the ‘That wasn’t really socialism lie’. Those who know the full truth of socialism reject it.

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis?

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is one of the bluest major cities in America. The race for the Democratic nomination for the MN-5 district is essentially the general election because Democrats have held the seat belonging to Minneapolis since 1963. The closest a Republican has come to winning the district in this century was Alan Fine in 2006 who “only” lost to Keith Ellison by 34.3%. Oftentimes, the Democrat wins by over 50 points.

But Republican Lacy Johnson seeks to make history. He’s not making the attempt by being a moderate RINO trying to coax the people of Minneapolis into believing he’s basically a Democrat. His platform is boldly conservative and includes a balanced budget amendment, school choice, and a bear-hug embrace of President Trump’s economic policies.

Growing up with nine siblings in modest circumstances didn’t make him feel poor. It did make him realize it’s his responsibility to support his family as an adult and not rely on government. This is exactly the type of mentality we need more of in Washington DC. It’s the kind of mentality that will serve Minneapolis well.

Under normal circumstances, even being a strong candidate isn’t enough in Minneapolis when you have the letter (R) next to your name on the ballot. But in 2020, Johnson has one major advantage that should give the GOP hope. He’s going up against Ilhan Omar, the “Squad” member who has been nothing but an embarrassment to herself, Minneapolis, and the United States of America. Despite accomplishing essentially nothing outside of Twitter in her brief tenure, she still walks the halls of Capitol Hill as if she’s a diva rockstar. That’s part of the charade her “Squad” members portray; they’re a shame even to Democrats but because they’ve gained nationwide popularity among radical progressives, they’ve been allowed to keep playing their games. For now.

But even as Omar struts around Capitol Hill, she’s ignoring the people who put her in office in the first place. To Omar, Minneapolis is merely a place where she’s forced to campaign. We can see this based on her actions; literally nothing she has done in DC has even come close to affecting Minneapolis residence. That’s uncanny, even for a Democrat.

The people of Minneapolis may finally vote red for two reasons: (1) Lacy Johnson is a winner with great ideas, and (2) Ilhan Omar has been nothing but an embarrassment, absent from Minneapolis since her election. President Trump should endorse him.

Why Bernie Sanders failed so hard this time

Why Bernie Sanders failed so hard this time

Elizabeth Warren is the new Bernie Sanders. Mark it down. Sanders will be out of the race before the Iowa caucus even though he won it in 2016. Why? Because he was replaced by a younger, sleeker model.

But there’s much more to the story of the Sanders 2020 failure than just another radical progressive using the same basic talking points. Warren is something that Sanders is not. In fact, Warren has the one piece to the puzzle that Sanders has always lacked. He’s an old white straight male.

Elizabeth Warren female and will therefore beat Sanders for the radical progressive votes. It’s as simple as that.

In fact, it’s already happening.

Bernie Sanders South Carolina crowd size one-third of Elizabeth Warren’s

Campaign events by Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, competing for voters on the Left flank of the 2020 Democratic primary field, proved a study in contrasts this weekend as far as crowd sizes are concerned.

Nearly 300 people attended a Sanders town hall in Columbia on Saturday, while over 900 showed up to see Warren in Aiken the day before.

It was conspicuous that Eric Swalwell, Cory Booker, and other male candidates declared they would have a female running-mate long before they ever were a blip on the polling radar. They’re reading the tea leaves, seeing the writing on the wall, and realizing this version of the Democratic Party values intersectionality more than anything else. If a lesbian minority non-Christian ran this election cycle and had an ounce of personality, she would have run away with the nomination. But today, one must pick their favored intersectional characteristic since nobody possess all of them.

Do they go with minority female Kamala Harris? Gay male Pete Buttigieg? Minority political outsider Andrew Yang? It seems like most are picking the same card that beat Bernie in 2016. The Democrats want a female, and even though Warren is Caucasian (plus 1/1024 Cherokee!), she has the advantage of advancing the Sanders agenda and at times doubling down on it. Harris is trying to do the same, but she’s a mess. She can recover, but her bouncing policies are not as endearing as Warren’s strict adherence to radicalism-at-all-costs. And by “all costs,” I mean ALL costs… to everyone.

Despite being 1-2 in the polls from the beginning, neither Joe Biden nor Bernie Sanders have a chance of getting the nomination. The new Democratic Party will not nominate an old white male because they’re neither racist nor sexist. Ironic.

Do Omar, Tlaib oppose LGBTQ rights like the Palestinian Authority?

Do Omar Tlaib oppose LGBTQ rights like the Palestinian Authority

Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib want Israel to be boycotted, divested, and sanctioned. They want the Democrats in the House of Representatives to take Congressional action against Israel. They want to drive a wedge between the United States and Israel. Most importantly, they want Israel to no longer exist, replaced by the Palestinian Authority and a “New Palestine.”

Do they also support the Palestinian Authority’s ban on LGBTQ activities? Do they agree with the anti-LGBTQ tenets of the Muslims organizations the Congresswomen support?

In a society in which the media handled things in an unbiased manner, these are questions the press would be asking Omar and Tlaib following the Palestinian Authority’s ban on LGBTQ activities in the West Bank, an area where Tlaib’s grandmother lives and where she petitioned to visit before declining to do so after Israel allowed it.

The press should ask them if they support the Palestinian Authority’s move against LBGTQ individuals:

Palestinian Authority bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank

The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.

Both Tlaib and Omar claim to be supportive of LGBTQ rights. But they also have a not-so-subtle attachment to the Palestinian Authority and are actively working to put them in control of all of Israel. Does that mean they would approve of their ban of LGBTQ individuals “from the river to the sea”?

While many in America’s LGBTQ community continue to support and often partner with Islamic groups to help their friends in the Democratic Party, others in the community have spoken out against the anti-LGBTQ policies Muslim majority nations impose on their people. This needs to be addressed by LGBTQ leaders; they can’t (or at least shouldn’t) ignore the plight of the international LGBTQ community for the sake of political expediency.

The Palestinian Authority’s ban on all LGBTQ activities in the West Bank should be a point of contention that Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib need to reconcile. But they won’t. Mainstream media will bury the story and nobody will ask them how they feel.
