It is becoming readily apparent that there are two types of socialists promulgating two types of socialism. Essentially the first type are overt socialists, promising all manner of freebies in exchange for votes, paid for by other people’s money extracted at the point of a gun. All of this is part of the left’s socialist national agenda that promises a Utopia on earth that has never worked in 400 years.
The second type are covert socialists who make all of the same grandiose and never to be fulfilled promises, but keep all the ‘revolutionary’ talk under their hats. This can be confirmed by just taking a peek beneath the false veneer of their rhetoric, directly at their collectivist policy agenda.
Socialism is going back underground
The hidden tribes study showed that the nation’s socialist far-left is only 10% of the population. These are the red-dyed in the wool collectivists – the true believers in socialists who still think it can work despite 400 years of proof along with over 100 million deliberately murdered.
This small cadre of the non-theistic religion of collectivism still holds the false belief that it can work with the correct people in charge. Coincidentally, they consider themselves as the right people for the job. Despite 400 years of proof, it can never work they are still ready to give it a go, never mind the millions that will have to be sacrificed for their ‘dream’.
The problem for the left is that they can read the handwriting on the Berlin Wall. Despite the Herculean fake news effort in pushing their socialist national agenda the past few years, no sane person is buying into the false promises.
They had proudly dropped the mask, declaring themselves to be socialists, hoping that everyone will have forgotten the abject failure that has occurred ever time socialism has been tried in the past 400 years. Their propaganda effort failed. Most people saw through the ruse and rejected their base ideology.
Bernie Sanders was rejected because he is an overt socialist
Recall that as the ‘Democratic’ primary season waned on, it became a contest between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. The latter proudly being an overt socialist with all manner of talk of ‘Medicare for All’ and housing as a ‘human right’ while rejecting real human rights such as free-speech and self-preservation.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden kept on pushing the same types of policy agendas without the red revolutionary flare. Joe and Bernie and the rest of the gang were always on the same page. Socialism has always been sold as a raft of false promises of freebies, all paid for with other people’s money. The big difference is whether it was cloaked in a red banner.
Many on the left came to the stark realization that no one is going to buy into the sloganeering. So they kept the false promises and dropped the wrapping paper decorated with images of Mao, Lenin, Stalin and Hitler.
Biden is still making the same false promises without the revolutionary pose
While many recognize that Joe Biden is a covert far-left socialist, like every other leftist it cannot be said that they are ‘liberal’ given that the left’s base ideology is antithetical to liberty. Sure, there are the promises of free stuff, but these have to be paid for with other people’s money, extracted at gunpoint. There are simply no two ways about it. No one would claim Hitler or Stalin were ‘flaming-liberals’ so consistency maintains that no one with those ideological precepts could be either.
Like Joe Biden, this rogues gallery of socialists always advocate measures such as the suppression of free-speech and self-defense that are the death of liberty, hardly the opposite.
Dan Sanchez of the Foundation for Economic Education recently detailed Joe Biden’s economic plans that promise ‘investment’ in certain types of industry, paid for with other people’s money that are rife with type 2 socialism. As Ludwig von Mises stated in his treatise Human Action:
There are two patterns for the realization of socialism.
The first pattern (we may call it the Lenin or the Russian pattern) is purely bureaucratic. All plants, shops, and farms are formally nationalized (verstaatlicht); they are departments of the government operated by civil servants. Every unit of the apparatus of production stands in the same relation to the superior central organization as does a local post office to the office of the postmaster general.
The second pattern (we may call it the Hindenburg or German pattern) nominally and seemingly preserves private ownership of the means of production and keeps the appearance of ordinary markets, prices, wages, and interest rates. There are, however, no longer entrepreneurs, but only shop managers (Betriebsführer in the terminology of the Nazi legislation).
It’s socialism with a thin veneer of economic freedom to make it seem like it’s not socialism. Leftists like to pretend that their base ideology involves the worker’s heroically seizing and running the ‘means of production’. This is never the case.
Socialism is the concentration of power in the hands of a leftist elite, ushered in with false promises of freebies. Whether or not the means of production are run directly or indirectly is of little difference, the overarching control is still there. The false veneer of ‘privatization’ doesn’t matter when it’s the government who calls the shots:
It is a fact that the Nazi government sold off public ownership in several state-owned ﬁrms in the mid-1930s. These ﬁrms belonged to a wide range of sectors; for example, steel, mining, banking, shipyard, ship-lines, and railways. It must be pointed out that, whereas modern privatization has run parallel to liber-alization policies, in Nazi Germany privatization was applied within a framework of increasing state control of the whole economy through regulation and political interference.
As stated, In type 2 socialism, the industrialists were merely shop managers (Betriebsführer) while they were nominally running the businesses entrusted to them, they still had to answer to the national authorities:
But in all their activities they are bound to obey unconditionally the orders issued by the government’s supreme office of production management. This office (The Reichswirtschaftsministerium in Nazi Germany) tells the shop managers what and how to produce, at what prices and from whom to buy, at what prices and to whom to sell.
The bottom line: Socialism fails no matter the type and whatever it’s not called
Recent days have seen Biden take on the policy positions of Bernie Sanders. The left is still trying to sell its socialist national agenda, they’ve just gone back to obscuring who they are.
They’ve kept the sugar-coated sales pitch of false promises that will never be fulfilled while dropping the revolutionary window dressing.
As is always the case, the packaging doesn’t really matter. Socialism is antithetical to liberty and human nature. So it will always fail with truly dreadful results, far worse than COVID-19. This is why Joe Biden and his merry band of socialists need to be defeated.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
