To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary. These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. - Che Guevara

Black Lives Matter Occupies Trader Joe’s

People from communist countries often express astonishment at the cornucopia of affordable goods available at American grocery stores, which presents a stark contrast to the barren shelves where socialism prevails. So it is fitting that Black Lives Matters Marxists in Seattle would target a Trader Joe’s

…claiming to be protesting “lack of access to grocery stores” and explaining to patrons “how capitalism exploits the working class.”

A mob of hooligans disrupting other people’s access to a grocery store may help promote the notion that blacks are oppressed because there are not enough of these stores in black neighborhoods. Leftists believe stores should be located not according to economic logic, but according to race. To the extent there is a shortage of grocery stores in black neighborhoods, crime is likely the major factor — including looting, which is a favorite pastime of Black Lives Matter “protesters.”

Leftists particularly hate Trader Joe’s because it is associated with gentrification — i.e., the economic improvement of impoverished neighborhoods. If you don’t build a grocery store, you are racist for creating a food desert. If you do build one, you are racist for inflicting gentrification. Whatever constructive people do, it will enrage leftists.

The occupation, which resulted in paying customers being locked out of the store, is the handiwork of Morning March Seattle, which has caused havoc on a nearly daily basis all summer. Earlier this month, they blocked roads, backing up traffic from Seattle to Bellevue. The media has to do a lot of heavy lifting to keep BLM’s approval numbers up.

Black Lives Matter and the Chinese Cultural Revolution

If the ritual public shaming tactics employed by Black Lives Matter militants look familiar, you might be thinking of the nightmare known as the Chinese Cultural Revolution. There are so many parallels, the ChiComs ought to sue BLM for copyright infringement.

Paul Joseph Watson illustrates in one of his best videos yet:

The similarities are not coincidental. Black Lives Matter cofounder Patrisse Cullors has described herself as a “trained Marxist.”

In the end, whether you call it Marxism, Maoism, or racial justice, it is all the same phenomenon: namely, totalitarianism, which is always imposed by bullies.

Fascism and Communism

Black Lives Matter is a Marxist movement. Someone who knows about living under Marxists understands what that means:

At first glance, it might seem that leftists and patriots have common ground in that neither side likes fascism. But they dislike it for opposite reasons.

Back when fascism was a significant force, patriots opposed fascism because it was a threat to freedom. Leftists opposed it because it competed with a still more totalitarian threat to freedom: communism. Leftists oppose fascism even now, pretending it is more than a historical artifact so as to associate it with anyone they want to destroy.

Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism?

The media, pro sports, and Corporate America have been mainstreaming Marxism under the banner of Black Lives Matter, making us wonder once again why we can’t all agree that communism is evil the way we do with Nazism. Dennis Prager has offered a few reasons:

1. No one teaches the actual history of communism, because communists and their fellow travelers control the schools.

2. The Holocaust overshadows even the Holodomor as the epitome of systemized government-inflicted evil.

3. Communism can be spun as benevolent to people who don’t think through its implications.

4. Germany has acknowledged the evils of Hitler. Russia and China have not done the same with Lenin, Stalin, and Mao.

5. Communists murder mostly their own people.

6. Leftists consider World War II to be the last “good” war.

The crucial difference between Nazism and communism is that Nazism has been eliminated as a threat. Communism is more of threat to America now than it has ever been.

The Gist of the Democratic National Convention

Not many have been watching the virtual Democratic National Convention, not only because it has been a boring, amateurish production, but because you can’t learn much from the Potemkin Village version of the Democratic Party that is presented in the evening as the main attraction. Mark Dice has summed up what you probably didn’t bother to watch yesterday.

To learn what the Dems are really up to, watch the side attractions, like the Youth Council of the Democratic National Committee meeting where convention panelist Ashley McCray openly stated that the party’s objective is “the destruction of colonization, white supremacy, and capitalism.”

To translate, “colonization” = “Western Civilization”; “white supremacy” = “color-blind equality before the law”; and “capitalism” = “the economic freedom that allows a high standard of living.”

Ms McCray is much more in step with the party than the Trojan horse “transition” candidate Joe Biden, as the popularity within the party of socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders attests.

Doglines Coming to North Korea?

No one can say they don’t know what lies ahead on the road to socialism, because we can watch as others reach key milestones. Venezuelans have been reduced to eating their pets. North Koreans have progressed still further. Their government confiscates pets, possibly for redistribution as food.

Kim Jong Un’s order that inmates of Pyongyang turn in their dogs is characteristically couched in Marxist class warfare rhetoric:

Launching a clampdown on dog ownership with a ban issued in July, the North Korean dictator cited “western decadence” and “a tainted trend of bourgeois ideology,” a source told South Korea newspaper “The Chosunlibo

Owners fear that their dogs may be heading to a slaughterhouse and returning as dog meat, in response to an ongoing food supply shortage.

Bernie Sanders says breadlines are “a good thing,” so doglines must be a good thing too.

Who a Vote for Joe Biden Is a Vote For

A vote for Joe Biden is not a vote for Joe Biden, because Quid Pro Quo Joe isn’t really there anymore. Who is it a vote for? The Hill offers a clue:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) will speak at the virtual Democratic National Convention, organizers confirmed on Tuesday…

The first-term New York congresswoman and progressive standard-bearer will speak next Tuesday. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), for whom Ocasio-Cortez served as a prominent surrogate, is also set to address the convention on Monday.

As Bernard Goldberg writes,

It’s not exactly a bulletin that Joe Biden is a puppet candidate. … His political team puts words in his mouth and on a good day he repeats them without forgetting what he’s talking about. Be assured that if Biden wins, Bernie Sanders and AOC will be running the show.

With control of congress and a hard left wind at their back, it won’t take them long to fundamentally transform America into North Venezuela.
