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…

As pressure grows to ease the financial burden on social security, pressure will also grow to eliminate the elderly and infirm to 'free up' more money for the 'fit' and those who contribute more than they take from society. - Cal Thomas

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.

ChiCom Christianity: Jesus as Executioner

As leftists tighten their fist on power, everything that came before right now is altered or abolished to conform to their current orthodoxy — even things that need to last forever. This includes scripture. To get an idea of what Christianity might look like in a world run by authoritarian oligarchical collectivists, refer to communist China, where students learn that Jesus stoned a prostitute to death.

So much for forgiveness. The ChiCom version, published in a textbook by the government-run University of Electronic Science and Technology Press, goes like this:

The crowd wanted to stone the woman to death as per their law. But Jesus said, ‘Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone.’ Hearing this, they slipped away one by one.

When the crowd disappeared, Jesus stoned the sinner to death saying, “I too am a sinner. But if the law could only be executed by men without blemish, the law would be dead,” the textbook said.

No wonder John Paul II felt the need to stand up to communists. They can be counted on to suppress and/or subvert Christianity, with the ultimate goal of destroying it.

Speaking of communists subverting Christianity:

Pope Francis denounced trickle-down economics, private property, and advocated for the redistribution of wealth in a new letter to Roman Catholic leaders.

Reuters reports on the Red Pope’s latest denunciation of economic freedom:

“There were those who would have had us believe that freedom of the market was sufficient to keep everything secure (after the pandemic hit),” he wrote.

Francis denounced “this dogma of neo-liberal faith” that resorts to “the magic theories of ‘spillover’ or ‘trickle’ … as the only solution to societal problems”. …

Francis repeated past calls for redistribution of wealth to help the poorest and for fairer access to natural resources by all.

This from a guy who lives in a massive palace.

The Church needs another John Paul II.

When you look back at the fight against Communism, one thing that is striking is the degree to which we [the United States] were carried on by our own values. One of the real challenges of the new era is going to be to maintain those values and not adopt those of our adversaries. - David E. Hoffman

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.
