Now that state officials are no longer making any qualms about being the homeland of #TheResistance, the rest of America will be able to draw a contrast between the nation’s biggest colony of free-roaming liberal lunatics and what generally passes for normal.
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.
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).
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.”
Although the “Grand Coalition” between Christian Democrats (CDU-CSU) and Social Democrats (SDP) isn’t a fait accompli just yet, German media reports that Angela Merkel and Martin Schulz have already agreed on a massive socialist housing agenda.
The party leader said he would purchase 8,000 homes “immediately” and give them to people sleeping rough around the UK.
He also highlighted plans to allow councils to take over properties that have been left “deliberately” empty in order to house people who are on waiting lists around the country.
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.
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.
DSA and other Marxist groups have been actively recruiting Muslim activists all over the countery. The Red/Green Axis, begun in pre-revolutionary Russia, is now very much a feature of political life in pre-revolutionary America.
In the years prior to the Sanders campaign, the DSA’s number of card-carrying members hovered around 6,500 — and has nearly quintupled since 2016’s presidential race to more than 30,000.
A socialist student group at Iowa State University has repeatedly made threatening comments about conservatives on social media, but the school says the comments are protected speech.
Maybe each of these naive women marchers could take one home to live at her house (and pay all their expenses!).
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 president urged crisis-hit Venezuelans to breed rabbits and eat them as a source of animal protein.
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.
