Thanksgiving: Overcoming Socialism

Among the many things we have to be thankful for is that the Pilgrims showed us that individual liberty is an integral component of general prosperity and that socialism does not work, except as a means of inflicting tyranny:

Liberalism is really piecemeal socialism, and socialism always attacks three basic social institutions: religion, the family, and private property. Religion, because it offers a rival authority to the state; the family, because it means a rival loyalty to the state; and property, because it means material independence of the state. - Joseph Sobran

According to a Pew poll, 49% of young Americans have a favorable view of socialism. What is socialism? it is a system that leads to mass misery, mass impoverishment, and human slaughter. That's what it means. Yet almost half of the young think it's benign. - David Horowitz

Stevie Wonder Promises Biden Will Redistribute Wealth by Race

Stevie Wonder is an iconic pop star. Chances are high that he lives much better than you do. However, assuming you pay taxes, he sees it as the government’s job to confiscate from you to give to him, to compensate him for being oppressed. Wonder says Joe Biden will bring this about.

Via Breitbart:

Wonder, whose estimated net worth exceeds $100 million, called for reparations for black Americans while performing at a Joe Biden rally in Detroit on Saturday. …

At one point during the rally, the singer voiced his demand for reparations. “I know Joe Biden will do it. Give us reparations! For the work that we’ve all done for the last 400 years — unpaid,” the pop star said.

Unpaid, says the zillionaire.

Stevie Wonder is welcome to the money he earned. But he wants to take by force money he did not earn. He is a looter. No looter will ever be satisfied, no matter how much he has stolen.

As noted earlier, the Marxism in store for us if the Democrats win will be race-based. Add racial animus to the ideology that killed 100 million people last century and the outcome won’t be pretty.

Kamala Harris Comes Out as Communist

Everyone who follows politics knows it won’t actually be Joe Biden running the country if he is nominally elected. At this point, he is too mentally feeble for that to be plausible. But Democrats aren’t voting for a pig in a poke. They know exactly what they are voting for. For the sake of stoking the base, de facto presidential candidate Kamala Harris has spelled it out for them, lest any leftists take Biden’s relatively mild rhetoric seriously enough to stay home today. Two days before the election, she tweeted out this open embrace of Marxism, narrated by herself:

We must all end up at the same place. Except of course our rulers, who need to stand above in order to guarantee that wealth is redistributed evenly between those who create it and those who do not.

As plenty of others have noticed, she is calling for communism.

You can see why every attempt to implement Marxism leads quickly through totalitarianism to piles of skulls. People are all different in any number of ways. The control required to produce precisely equal results for vastly different inputs is absolute. The level of slavery this ideology requires is so extreme that it cannot be inflicted without killing people on an industrial scale.

That is why over 100 million people were killed by their own communist governments in the course of 20th century.

The ideals America was founded on, and that allowed the country to grow and thrive, are the polar opposite of the ideology advanced by Kamala Harris et al. It is alarming in the extreme that tens of millions could be brainwashed into betraying their own country and renouncing the freedom that is their birthright as Americans.

If patriotic Americans survive the coming years, they have a duty to reclaim the schools and media. Letting leftists control both for decades put us at the edge of this precipice.

The races of the cartoon characters in Kamala’s video are not coincidental. The authoritarian collectivism that threatens us will have a racial component, as exemplified by the violently race-obsessed Marxists of Black Lives Matter. This adds a new level of tyranny and malice to the ideology that killed tens of millions when it was imposed on Russia and China.

There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism - by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide. - Ayn Rand

How to Lose What We Have

In light of tomorrow’s election, this video is more relevant now than at any point in the 70 years since it was made:

On the ballot are freedom and the wealth it produces versus collectivist authoritarianism and the misery that produces. Choose wisely.

When People Tell You What They Want to Do…

…listen to them. This is what the ballplayers, the Democrat Party, and the rest of the liberal establishment kneel to:

The hundreds of riots that have characterized 2020 were not about black criminals put upon by the police. They were about doing to America what Hugo Chavez did to Venezuela, what Fidel Castro did to Cuba, what Mao Zedong did to China, what Vladimir Lenin did to Russia…

The left's inability to understand the most basic economic fact - that people need an incentive to produce - has caused the unnecessary deaths of tens of millions of people - mostly poor - in the last 75 years. But thanks to a politically corrupted media and educational system, their pigheaded pursuit of socialist fantasies goes on. - David Horowitz

It’s Getting Serious

With the benefit of hindsight, we can now definitively state that Joseph McCarthy was wrong; communist subversion was a much worse problem than he realized. As moonbattery continued to corrode society, former KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov also tried to warn us. Now the subversion is blossoming into a full-scale reprise of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.

If radicalized Democrats prevail in next month’s election, there may be no going back. The cancel culture will cancel America’s future.

They Say Scandinavia but They Mean Venezuela

Among the many lies that leftists are attempting to transform into accepted truth through constant repetition is that the Nordic countries are socialist, are paradises, and are the model for what Democrats want to fundamentally transform America into. Actually, they are trying to transform the country into Venezuela, as Debbie D’Souza can recognize, being from there:

In some respects, the USA is already closer to socialism than Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are — but so long as we don’t have to wait in breadlines and the lights still come on when we flip the switch, we aren’t close enough to suit Democrats.
