For the love of Communism

The Democrat-Dominated California Assembly is considering a bill that would wipe Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays off the calendar of holidays and add an official state holiday for Karl Marx, a.k.a., “International Workers Day.” I am not making this up.

When dupe Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed off on creating California’s
Jungle Primary” system and outsourced gerrymandering system, he was duped into believing these “reforms” would tame those crazy right-wing Republicans by forcing them to “moderate to the center.” Instead, the California Republican Party has been locked out of state power… probably forever, California has become a de facto one-party state, and the Democrats… whom no one ever talks about needing to be moderated… are now openly embracing radical Marxism.

This VSP (“Anarcho-communist, religious mystic, feminist, avid reader. Nerd extraordinaire. He/Him. Pan. Queer af.”)

This is exactly what the Very Stupid People believe, what they’ve been taught to believe.

Addendum: Seattle’s radical Marxist Democrats are experiencing a bit of a backlash against their latest tax-thievery scheme.

The Magic of Socialism

Zimbabwe: “Our farms once fed all of Africa. Now, we import food, and our currency is so degraded we print trillion dollar bills and it takes a pile of them to buy a loaf of bread. No one has succeeded at socialism better than we have.”

Venezuela: “Agarra mi cerveza.

Socialism is magical in its ability to turn First World economies into Third World economies, but Venezuela has gone full on ‘Mad Max.” Children are literally fighting with machetes over garbage,

At 16, Liliana has become the mother figure for a gang of Venezuelan children and young adults called the Chacao, named after the neighborhood they’ve claimed as their territory. The 15 members, ranging in age from 10 to 23, work together to survive vicious fights for “quality” garbage in crumbling, shortage-plagued Venezuela. Their weapons are knives and sticks and machetes. The prize? Garbage that contains food good enough to eat.

On the other hand, Venezuela has reduced income inequality (by making the middle class poor and the party elite ultra-rich), implemented state-provided Healthcare for All, they are fighting climate change, and about to legalize gay marriage. So, from a leftist perspective, having child gangs fight in the street over piles of garbage is pretty much worth it.

This is apparently not a parody account:

So, under socialism, only foot fetishists will work in shoe stores, bedpans will be emptied by coprophiliacs, and potatoes will be dug by… poor people overseen by armed men because nobody in the real world is going to do it just for the gratification of feeding smug populations of urban elites who spend their days making Twitter posts about how awesome socialism is. 

Until someone invents replicators so we can have Luxury Authoritarian Space Communism a la Star Trek, this scheme of “everybody works for the common good and does whatever they want” isn’t going to work. And even in the Trek universe, there is still scarcity. If everyone is living in a high-rise condo, who gets the top floor with the view? Who has to be next to the turbolift? I imagine there would have to be an entire bureaucracy of people making those allocations; people who were really passionate about telling other people where they get to live and suchlike.

The Difference

But this is a key difference between Modern Conservatives (a.k.a. Classical Liberals) and the Modern Progessive Left. Conservatives have no problem if leftists want to establish their own communes and live according to their beliefs. (California is rapidly turning into just that). What we resent is leftists seizing Government power and using it to force *us* to live according to *their* beliefs; or as the d-bag in the video puts it, “If I deem you an asshole, I’m allowed to take your stuff.”  And the problem is that seizing Government power and using it to force people to live according to their beliefs is what the modern progressive left is all about.

Criticizing Communism is now a “White Nationalist Talking Point.”

Oh, and accusing critics of being “White Nationalists” is the Left’s new favorite way of dodging an argument they know they can’t win.

As hinted by commenter Sean L yesterday, it seems that Senser Rapone — West Point’s Antifa-supporting, Che Guevara loving, socialist revolutionary — was “mentored” by an Islamic Supremacist professor.

A professor at West Point Military Academy who wrote a book on Islam has been placed on administrative leave, and while the school says it has nothing to do with 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone – the former cadet and Army officer who was recently exposed as a socialist organizer – Dr. Rasheed Hosein had mentored Rapone up to his graduation in May 2016.

His left-wing supporters are claiming that Lt. Rapone should not be criticized because he wears an Army uniform; as did Timothy McVeigh and Major Naial Hassan.

I got nothin’

Carlos Slim’s New York Times has lately been on a tear openly promoting communism. So…. we will run with that.

And, apparently, there’s a West Pointer who loves racist mass murderer Che Guevara and is rooting for the victory of Communism. (Or, just bucking to get kicked out.)

On the one hand, Communism butchered 100M people in the 20th Century,  and in the 21st, made the country with the largest oil reserves in the world a place where people are eating their pets to keep from starving. He looks like the sort of douche-canoe who’d actually like that system.

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.

Socialism, Starvation, and Child Prostitution

The Progressive left says that Venezuela’s problems are all because the price of oil collapsed, but I don’t see people starving and resorting to prostitution in Saudi Arabia or Norway.

As night falls over Caracas, and most of the city’s residents lock their doors against its ever more violent streets, Adriana Velásquez gets ready for work, heading out into an uncertain darkness as she has done since hunger forced her into the only job she could find at 14.

She was introduced to her brothel madam by a friend more than two years ago after her mother, a single parent, was fired and the two ran out of food. “It was really hard, but we were going to bed without eating,” said the teenager, whose name has been changed to protect her.

Since then Venezuela’s crisis has deepened, the number of women working at the brothel has doubled, and their ages have dropped. “I was the youngest when I started. Now there are girls who are 12 or 13. Almost all of us are there because of the crisis, because of hunger.”

Note, this article is from the Far Left ‘Guardian’ website. A few years ago, they were cheering the ‘success’ of Chavista socialism and lionizing the architect of the Venezuela’s socialist economy.


Quotes On Fascism

“Fascist ethics begin … with the acknowledgment that it is not the individual who confers a meaning upon society, but it is, instead, the existence of a human society which determines the human character of the individual. According to Fascism, a true, a great spiritual life cannot take place unless the State has risen to a position of pre-eminence in the world of man. The curtailment of liberty thus becomes justified at once, and this need of rising the State to its rightful position.”  — Mario Palmieri

“F**k your f***ing Constitution, f**k your liberal Bernie bullshit. We are here to fight Nazis.” – Antifa “Activist’

A few weeks ago, Progressive Leftists were claiming that Antifa had nothing to do with them, that they abhorred their violent tactics. But now that the Democrats and especially the Democrat Media Complex have embraced and legitimized political violence, those who previously claimed to oppose it are nowhere to be seen.

We condemn racists – and violent socialists

Racism is stupid and wrong.

Violating others’ rights to their own life, liberty and property is stupid and wrong.

Therefore, slavery is stupid and wrong. Discrimination is stupid and wrong. Crime is stupid and wrong. Tyranny/dictatorship is stupid and wrong. And socialism is stupid and wrong.

We condemn and disavow the racist, criminal and/or tyrannical beliefs and actions that manifest among neo-Nazis, KKK, white identitarians, any of the #WhiteLivesMatter types of U.S. citizens.

We condemn the racist, criminal and/or tyrannical beliefs and actions that manifest among the Antifa, #BlackLivesMatter or any other left-wing types of U.S. citizens.

We condemn and disavow criminal violence wherever it manifests, whether among Alt Left demonstrators, Alt Left nutcases (like that guy who shot up Congress), Alt Right demonstrators, or Alt Right nutcases (like that guy who rammed his car at counter-demonstrators).

To the extent that they can keep it non-violent, we support both the Alt Left and Alt Right in exercising their First Amendment right to demonstrate. However stupid or offensive their statements may seem.

We support Liberty under the Rule of Law, including the First Amendment. #AllLivesMatter

We note that the Democrat party is the party of institutional and historical racism in the U.S. And the party of socialism. As such, we call upon all Democrats to disavow the violence and bigotry that manifest among the Antifa and #BlackLivesMatter types of people; which, at present, most Democrats are busy denying or excusing.

In a saner world, all of the above statements would be obvious and non-controversial. Perhaps not even needing to be said.

And Every Word is True.

“All those idiots hurling the epithet ‘Nazi’ around this weekend, do they even know what the Nazi Party stands for? Well, I’ll tell you: Universal health care. Free education. Redistribution of wealth. Hooray for the little guy and boo large corporations and banks. After all, they’re *socialists*, fer crying out loud. The Nazi party platform could’ve been written by Occupy Wall Street or Bernie F*ing Sanders.”

Racism and violence are left-wing, part II

Our leftie commentors’ response to yesterday’s post on this was interesting – by what they never said. First, only 2 showed up. (Not that we have many to begin with, but on something big and controversial, usually they’ll support each other a bit more.) Second, they made zero effort to address the post’s main points:

  • that Nazis were/are socialists.
  • that, in all of American history (including today), the Democrats/Left have been the side of racist thinking (or racial categories), racial segregation, so-called “eugenics”, etc.
  • that there is nothing right-wing about the so-called Alt Right of 2017; excepting alone their choice to *claim* that they are somehow rightist.
    • (In 2016 or earlier, some actual rightists did adopt the “Alt Right” label thinking it was kicky and fun, but discarded the label when the #WhiteLivesMatter racists took it over.)
  • that, despite appearances, it’s ideologically and psychologically easy for white supremacists and hard leftists/Democrats to change into each other, pretend to be each other, etc.
  • Because the essence of both sides is tribal collectivism and the desire to punish one’s dissenting or dissimilar neighbor.

By contrast – What is it, to be conservative or right-wing? I’m no expert but the answers usually given will boil down to:

  1. Standing up for tradition. E.g., Catholic or other Christian rightists (whom, by the way, the Nazis hated). In the UK, it could mean monarchists supporting the Queen.
  2. Standing up for Liberty under the Rule of Law. In America, this means a love of everyone’s constitutional rights to life, liberty and property.

Neither are what white supremacists stand for. What they stand for is their approximation of racism-with-socialism; in other words, left-wing politics.

When will we start labeling them, not on the basis of what they *claim* to be (for some horrible marketing purpose of their own), but on the basis of their actual views? “Alt Left” would be closer.

For dessert: Steven Crowder on The Top 3 Ways in which Antifa and white nationalists are the same. In brief:

  1. Both readily disregard the law and Constitution.
  2. Both promote identity politics and play the Victim card.
  3. Both support Big Government / left-liberal policies (e.g., both want nationalized / single-payer health care).
  4. Bonus round: Both hate Israel.

Also, V the K’s comment:

The other truth that must not be spoken: The left is absolutely thrilled and delighted with what happened in Charlottesville.

The only way it could have made them happier is if their Antifa protesters had been shot by an NRA member.

The truth that must not be spoken: Racism and violence are left-wing

Commenter Sarah kindly pointed us to this report about Jason Kessler, a leader of the #WhiteLivesMatter Charlottesville march.

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016…point[s] to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

You do have to take it with a grain of salt, because it comes from the highly-dysfunctional Southern Poverty Law Center. Still, it’s plausible when you remember that in 2008, white supremacists tended to support then-Candidate Obama. (Original Esquire article here; in case that ever goes away, my comment here captures some bits.)

OK, so why would white supremacists (whether full-fledged, or just potential ones) align with left-wing causes, such as Occupy Wall Street and Barack Obama? The answer is in the linked Esquire article. In brief,

  • White supremacists know a fellow racist when they see one. (They admired President Obama’s “racial consciousness”.) And,
  • They admire fellow socialists.

That’s right. Racism and socialism go together, as the Nazis proved. The Nazis were socialists; if you don’t believe me, check out the list of evidence in this earlier post.

We also know it from American history. Democrats fought to preserve slavery (whereas the Republicans freed the slaves). Democrats formed and manned the KKK; instituted the Jim Crow laws; invented Planned Parenthood specifically to abort black babies (look into Margaret Sanger sometime); and defended racial segregation well into the 1970s. And the youngest, most “progressive” lefties are bringing back racial segregation, here in the 2010s.

At some point, Democrats did flip the racist script and turn into brown supremacists (rather than white supremacists), but the dynamic is the same: An obsession with racial categories and race preferences/stigmatizing. It stems from Tribalism, which goes hand-in-hand with Collectivism, which is the philosophical root of socialism.

That’s why racism is left-wing. As to the violence: The essence of the socialist or “progressive” project is the use of force – that is, violence – to punish one’s neighbor for being better-off AND/or for not submitting enough to leftist nonsense and virtue-signalling.

In other words: leftism is violent inherently. In its nature, left-wing politics is a wish to see violence being done to those of your neighbors who won’t be or do or say what you want. Whereas pro-liberty or genuine right-wing politics is a wish for people to be able to avoid each other when they want.

All of this makes it wrong to claim that violent racists are from the Right. And that is part of why I keep calling the Charlottesville march a #WhiteLivesMatter thing, rather than using the false and misleading “Unite the Right” name given by its organizers. What those guys stood for has nothing to do with the Right’s love of life, liberty and property.

But leftists will claim that violent racists are rightists anyway. Because every American knows instinctively that racism and political violence are both bad. To stay in business, the Left must, at all costs, deflect and project-away the blame for it.

Thus we get the accusational, virtue-signalling frenzies like the one against President Trump today, which I just noted.

The Left Needs Rage to Keep the Progressive Con Job Going

About that Google memo that is this week’s Rage Fetish for the Progressive Left. The left is claiming that it is “anti-diversity” and that it makes claims that women are unsuitable for jobs in the tech industry because they are too emotional and inferior to men. The actual memo says none of those things. What it actually says is that inclusiveness and diversity should be extended to thoughts and ideas instead of being limited to race, gender, symbolism and feelings.

I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes. When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem.

Why is the left lying about this fairly anodyne memo? They are lying because they need to stoke outrage. Why do they need to stoke outrage? Because constant rage is absolutely necessary for the progressive left to achieve its goals.

Socialism — properly understood — is a scheme by which wealth is acquired through political power rather than economic success. Fidel Castro, Robert Mugabe, and Hugo Chavez are typical of socialist ‘heroes of the people’ who impoverished their people but died (or on Mugabe’s case, will die) with billions of dollars in foreign bank accounts. Bill and Hillary Clinton … with a net worth of well over $100 million… have done well on their modest salaries as ‘public servants.’

Misdirection is essential to keep the marks at the bottom from noticing that the politicians spouting the rhetoric of equality are getting very, very wealthy while their own economic circumstances are stagnant or declining. The oligarchs have to keep them in a perpetual state of outrage about ‘racism,’ or ‘sexism’ or ‘homophobia’ or ‘Islamophobia’ or whatever. They even came up with a term, ‘intersectionalities’ to make it possible for *everything* to be racist, sexist… et cetera. And because it’s a seven syllable word, the marks feel like they’re reall smart when they say it and don’t realize they’re being conned.

And the fact of the matter is there really isn’t a lot of racism or sexism or homophobia left in society. So, the left has to make stuff up. It has to make up that a Google employee wrote an ‘anti-diversity screed’ that attacked women as having no business in the tech industry, or that Michael Brown was an innocent young school boy shot to death by a racist cop as he pleaded for mercy. (“Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”) They know that their base is too lazy to look up the facts and too cowardly to dissent even if they have doubts about the Narrative.

The left’s social, economic, and political ideas cannot stand up to scrutiny (which is why diversity of ideas is so threatening to them). Therefore, it is essential to keep its people in a state of rage, lest they calm down and start thinking about leftism objectively.

And Then They Woke Up…

A group of college know-it-all Marxists at Swarthmore broke up when they looked around at each other and realized they were all rich white people.

According to screenshots confidentially provided to Campus Reform by an individual with access to the group’s private Facebook page, the demise of the Swarthmore Anti-Capitalist Collective (SACC) came in the wake of a farewell letter from a member who had decided the group could never be an effective proponent of “unproblematized anticapitalist politics” due to its “history of abuse, racism, and even classism.”

They probably figured out that real Marxism would mean giving up their money and privilege to the poors.

I admit the audience seems a bit puzzled. But probably because the quotes are at a 12th-grade reading level. They sure aren’t booing the talk of destroying capitalism or controlling all owners of property.

Taking your money at gunpoint

You pay taxes because the government forces you to. The only differences between taxation and robbery are:

  1. The government makes it legal (when they do it).
  2. The government has more window-dressing or layers of deception. For example, they’ll say that you pay taxes voluntarily. (Which is deception, because they will jail you and/or your banker if you don’t pay; and shoot you if you resist jail.)

In Seminole County, FL, they just got a little more honest. Seminole County tax collector will allow employees to carry guns.

Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg told the Orlando Sentinel that according to Florida law, he and his employees are considered “revenue officers” and are exempt from the state’s ban on the open carrying of firearms while performing their duties…

He said 15 to 20 employees will be allowed to carry firearms. Greenberg said no one will be forced to carry a weapon, adding that he “can’t imagine that they wouldn’t want to.”

The citizens, by contrast, can’t carry guns. So now the tax collectors are armed, and the citizens aren’t. (Whereas before, they met on slightly more equal terms and had to bring the police in for any physical disputes.) Roman empire, here we come!
