It’s true, isn’t it? Take communism (advanced socialism) for example. How many times has it been tried and failed? Yet the idea of a communist workers paradise won’t go away. Mike Shedlock, better known as Mish of Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis, is one of my favorite economic pundits. In his article, Mish postulates a new law, which he calls : The Law of Bad Ideas. He writes: A proposal by French president Francois Hollande got me thinking about “The Law of Bad Ideas“. I did a search for the phrase and surprisingly, nothing came up. Thus, I get to define […]
After reading Robert Stacy McCain’s complete dismantling of the pro-communist rantings of Jesse Myerson, I’ve kept my eyes peeled for other stories that show how, in the words of the late Yuri Bezmenov, “how the beautiful society of equality and social justice is in practice.” Here is one such example. The following video shows a typical Moscow grocery store was on a typical day, in 1986. Now, besides the scarcity, did you notice that no one seemed to smile? No friendly exchanges, no banter, no warm greetings. Just mind-numbing obedience and drudgery. That was communism in the 80′s, and will […]
Pelosi: We Must “End This Economic Violence” (Weasel Zippers) #EconomicViolence started as a way for some on the Left to complain about, well, capitalism basically. – Twitchy “Nancy Pelosi wants to fight economic violence? Maybe she should start by getting Democrats to resign.” — The Daley Gator If there’s one thing at which our domestic enemies excel, it’s in coining inane slogans for the progressive Hive to murmur endlessly. Designed to replace rational thought with bumper-sticker dementia, the socialists Democrats unveil a new one every few months, usually timed to coincide with the latest assault on our liberties. Who could […]
It certainly is true what is what is said about R.S. McCain-he attracts a higher grade of troll. And over the last couple days, he attracted one Sarah Alcid, a queer feminist Marxist who took offense offense at R.S. McCain’s coverage of the DC slut walk. It isn’t every day that a “Queer Feminist” with a diploma from Bryn Mawr (undergraduate tuition $42,870 a year) decides she needs my attention, but I’m so grateful for Miss Alcid’s encouragement to expand on what I said this morning: “Professor Aptheker is exactly right: If you want to be a true feminist, you […]
“Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.” — Barack Obama Fresh off his $100 million dollar African excursion, where he compared ailing communist Nelson Mandela to George Washington, Big Red lost no time in claiming another Marxist icon — Ho Chi Minh, the late Hanoi Hangman — to be a disciple of America’s Founding Fathers. This would no doubt come as a surprise to the million of his countrymen that Ho murdered — human liquidation, of course, being the one thing at which communists excel: Communist regimes […]
Note: This a post that was originally published in 2010. It still fits, if you ask me. Every now and again, I refer to Obama’s version of our nation as “Amerika.” Given that the ObamaCare abomination has survived it’s first few hurdles, it might be a good time to revisit why I say that. In 1987, ABC ran a 12 hour miniseries called, “AMERIKA,” chronicling life in an America that was taken over by the Soviet Union. Here is the trailer. I started looking for clips from it. There aren’t all that many, but this one rings true for modern […]
Yes, it was May Day-that Communist fiesta when leftists all over the world celebrate the most effective killing machine in human history. Oh and they riot too… And like all peaceful leftist protests, lots of glass, like, spontaneously breaks itself… Just rest assured that it’s someone else’s fault. It always is.
Happy Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday. This is the first in a series of posts today regarding the wonderful leftist tradition of Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday. Last year, Soopermexican published an info-graphic that infuriated the left. If it infuriates the left, I certainly don’t want to be left out, so I obtained permission to publish it here. So, at the request of Soopermexican, share this far and wide. There will be three more posts throughout the day. Keep stopping back for more Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday fun! Updated to correct my error, it is Lenin’s birthday, NOT Stalin’s. […]
I think that one of the greatest treasures we have are Communism Survivors. While today was the first time I heard that term, it does fit. With over 100,000,000 citizens killed by Communist governments in the 20th century, it’s an accomplishment to have escaped. Here is a video showing exactly why they are a treasure for all of us… We bloggers warn of what might come. Communism Survivors actually lived it, and survived to tell about it. We ought to listen to them, or we. or our children, will be forced to live it themselves. You can support the work […]
I think it’s getting even more amazing for the regressives in that they are slipping more and more. And, in that slippage, they’re letting out more and more of their ideas, and they don’t even get that it’s the most totalitarian drivel. I guess if you live in the unreality bubble, it’s a matter of time before you slip and think that tyranny is the normal state of man. In the latest example of regressive truth slippage, we have Melissa Harris-Perry, who happens to think that all of your children are belong to us. MRC has the video… Now, this […]
It’s been a while, but I thought that bringing back the CH 2.0′s one claim to fame (or infamy) might be in order. So, the Useful Idiot of the Month Poll has returned. First off, we need to define the term, useful idiot. It was a term, coined by the former Soviet Union (either Lenin or Stalin), to describe leftists in Western countries that supported, knowingly or not, communism. Then, if the communists really did come to power, most of the useful idiots would be imprisoned, killed, exiled, and the like. So, this is the nomination thread for the Useful […]
We’ve been saying for years that the left is all about violence. From violent Communist revolutions, and their genocidal aftermath, to the Nazis, to the Weather Underground, to Occupy Wall Street, leftists have paved a path of blood to their desired power. And, when they do achieve power, there is even more blood letting to keep it. For a more recent example, take a look at this, from Glenn Beck, via New Zeal… Your browser does not support iframes. All I can say is expect more. Then again, it is predicted.
Last year on the campaign trail, Obama let his slip show when he said that if you owned a small business, you didn’t build that. With absolutely zero experience in the private sector, our president has no idea what it means to risk your own, hard earned money, time and good name to start a business. Being steeped in the politics of Marx, Obama actually loathes folks that have made it on their own, with no help or thanks from the federal government. His education in Alinsky’s tactics, the MSM’s blind devotion and a dumbed-down electorate have all come together […]
The 7 Pieces of Advice by Trotsky for Obama, found in the 1934 Chicago Tribune Cartoon ‘Planned Economy or Planned Destruction’
This image is taken from the 1934 Chicago Tribune cartoon ‘Planned Economy or Planned Destruction?’. It focuses on the character of Leon Trotsky, who is laying out a series of policy goals for the United States. The Chicago Tribute suggested in its latest reprint of this cartoon that we take a look at this cartoon and see if it rings true in today’s political and economic climate. Whereas others have focused on simply analyzing the larger cartoon to identify all the characters in it (for the best analysis see this post), today I am going to attempt to see if this cartoon […]
Sometimes, we get to see what happens when public school staffer believe their own propaganda. The New Oxford HS marching band recently took to the field wielding hammers and sickles, rankling historically literate parents and observers. The Blaze has more… Todd Starnes wrote on the Fox News Radio website: “St. Petersburg: 1917” [was] the theme for the New Oxford High School Marching Band [performance]. Ironically, the school’s athletic teams are called the Colonials and their colors are red, white and blue. The band’s website features a picture of the group with students holding a hammer and sickle. “There is no reason for Americans to […]
