Rich A-holes Sanders And Warren To Host Town Hall On Income Inequality

Would you let HIV-positive drug addict Charlie Sheen lecture you on substance abuse and safe sex? No, of course you wouldn’t. Nobody would, but three old rich-ass white people are going to shame everyone for the “unfairness” of a free market society. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Michael Moore will hold a town hall on income inequality and you can bet it won’t be about how wealthy and overprivileged they are. I’m also assuming the topics of bank fraud, cultural appropriation, and gluttony won’t come up.


NRA’s Wayne LaPierre: “European Socialists” Are Taking Over The Democratic Party

National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre hit it out of the park at CPAC today. He bluntly warned conservatives that European socialists are smearing gun rights advocates and are trying to strip us of our Second Amendment rights. Bingo. “Socialism is a movement that loves a smear. Racists, misogynists, sexists, xenophobe and more. These are the weapons and vitriol these character assassinations permanently hang on their targets because socialism feeds off manipulated victims,” LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).


Time to Rebrand the Democratic Party as Socialists

Liberalism is an idealistic political philosophy born after the defeat of Napoleon, a philosophy of freedom, which epitomized individual liberty, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and free elections.

Socialism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy and economic system that promotes egalitarianism — a theory of economic equality. Modern socialism originated in the eighteenth century as a working-class economic and political movement that opposed private property and criticized the effects of industrialization on society. It is usually defined as “common ownership of the means of production.”


NY Times Opinion: Capitalism Is A Threat To The World And Must Be Replaced

The NY Times published an opinion piece yesterday titled “The Climate Crisis? It’s Capitalism, Stupid” which argues that capitalism is the real threat to the environment, a threat which must be eradicated if we are to survive. There’s nothing subtle about this piece. The author, who is a professor at Arizona State University, says capitalism is the problem and environmentalism is the movement that can supersede it.


NYT Columnist Calls Capitalism The ‘Real Culprit Of The Climate Crisis’

A New York Times opinion article recycles the old argument that capitalism is the root cause of global warming, and that turning to socialism would give humanity a better chance of survival.

Capitalism is often invoked as a global warming boogeyman that will inevitably lead to another mass extinction if more restrictive policies aren’t put in place. However, this NYT column goes on to claim that a “democratic socialist society” is the answer.


Hundreds marched against ‘Confederate pride’ in Austin, Texas

Hundreds marched against a scheduled (but then canceled) “Dixie Freedom Rally” in Austin, Texas, on Saturday. Public pressure against the event was immense, and after receiving threats of violence, the Texas Confederate Militia decided to postpone the event to a later date. That didn’t stop the counter march the Austin chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America had planned.


‘The S-word’: how young Americans fell in love with socialism

At 18, Olivia Katbi was answering the phones and emails in a Republican state senator’s office in Ohio. Then the legislator threw his weight behind a particularly contentious anti-abortion law. “I realised that the party I’m working for is evil. After that I identified as a Democrat but I wasn’t really happy with their policies either,” said Katbi, now 25.
