Truer Things Have Rarely Been Said

I have no doubt that someone wrote this line for him, but this is probably my favorite thing PDT has ever said.

 “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”

Anyone care to dispute that?

There was a time when Sen. Bernie Sanders, along with Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, and Jesse Jackson all praised Venezuela  for diminishing income inequality and instituting Government-provided health care.

People who are truly “woke” understand that the objective of socialism is not to raise the living standards of the poor, or even to equitably redistribute wealth. The objective of socialism is to concentrate and expand Government power within the a self-selected political class. In this respect, socialism as practiced by Venezuela, Cuba, Zimbabwe, North Korea, Detroit, Chicago, and California is succeeding exactly as planned.

It is my understanding that the comment was not well received by the “global elites.”

Speaking of PDT, now that it has been revealed that the Obama administration really was wiretapping the Trump campaign, I have noticed the Democrat Media Complex spin has gone from “Trump is insane to accuse Obama of wiretapping him” to “The fact that Obama was wiretapping Trump proves that TrumpRussia is a real scandal” without stopping for breath.

  1. the socialists say their goal is to fight concentration of wealth in the hands of the few. but the real goal of socialism is to concentrate ALL wealth in the hands of the few. that few being the ruling class. every dictatorship in history has had some form of a socialist economy where the ruling class has had the right to the fruits of the workers income..

  3. Communism isn’t a good idea that didn’t go to plan. It’s an awful idea that went exactly to plan.

  4. It’s stale cliche now but note that none of these luminaries. Sanders, Moore, Penn, et al ever choose to live in these utopias they swoon over.
