Millennial socialism

Millennial socialism: stupid, evil, or both?

Have you had a conversation about global warming with a millennial? If you have, you will know they defend their new religion as strongly as a Muslim does his. Logic plays no part, it’s a belief that bears no criticism, no questioning, no debate. That’s just the start, with their reality limited world experienced, these spoilt kids were brought up, if that’s the word for what we did to them, such that they see their life and living solely through their own needs.
Kurt Schlichter discusses their latest stupidity.

Congratulations, oh most insufferable of generations – against all odds and confounding the experts, you have still somehow managed to make yourselves even more annoying.

Apparently, the hep new jive among your tiresome cohort is “Democratic Socialism,” resurrecting a poisonous nineteenth-century political death cult and putting a kicky new spin on it to make it palatable for the suckers. It’s the political equivalent of hipsters who insist vinyl records are superior because they didn’t grow up forced to crank their tunes on that miserable format.

The “Democratic” part is some cunning rebranding. Just stick “Democratic” in front of something awful and it’s good-to-go. “Democratic haggis”? Yummy! “Democratic herpes”? Sexy! “Democratic Nazism?” Hey, what’s the difference? National socialism, democratic socialism? It’s really just a question of who runs the camps because regardless of the particular brand of socialism, there are always camps.

Always.

That these millennial Marxoids lack personal experience with socialism does not stop them from embracing it. After all, socialism’s biggest fans are always the people who aren’t trapped inside it. Remember the progs who always fly down to Havana and/or Caracas to party with the local caudillo? They always fly home again.
Today’s millennial socialist dilettantes might consider consulting with some of us who have personal experience with this ideological cancer, but millennials tend to prefer to rely upon their arbitrary feelz rather than on boring old facts, evidence, and history.

What the boring old facts, evidence, and history demonstrate, beyond any rational dispute, is that socialism is a bloodstained abomination with north of 100 million corpses to its accursed credit. The It Girl of the current commie/Democrat daisy chain, wide-eyed half-wit Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, doesn’t let bourgeois concepts like “knowing things” stop her from sharing her sophomore-grade insights all over the left-wing media, which is to say “the media.” Gulag Barbie is a clown, and even the late nite hack hosts stare back at her adolescent babbling, amazed as she tosses an incoherent word salad about her workers’ paradise.

Why, it will be just like Switzerland. Or Sweden. One of those. Like, are they different?

By the way, that’s satire (Def: “trenchant wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly”) in case you are, like her, too dumb to tell.

No one loves socialism quite like a moron who has never experienced it firsthand. No one hates it like someone who has seen it up close. I walked around in its ruins overseas; it’s an abattoir. My wife escaped it, though her granddad didn’t – he rotted in Castro’s prisons for nearly two decades because he refused to play ball with the reds. Then he died. Oh well, gotta break a few eggs to create a paradise where somebody else pays for your college, right?
Just remember that you are an egg.

The free stuff thing is a really big part of what today’s “Democratic Socialism” is –getting the leftist government to send people with guns to take the stuff you’ve worked for and give it to the people who like socialism.
Free college? Well, free for the people who vote for the democratic socialists.

Free healthcare? Well, free for the people who vote for the democratic socialists.

Free whatever they decide they want for free next? Well, free for…you get the idea.

Three guesses as to who gets stuck with the check for all this free stuff, because someone always gets stuck with the check because there is no such thing as free stuff. All those millennial mommies who read their theybies that insufferably stupid kiddie book The Giving Tree implanted the dual notions of entitlement and economic illiteracy into their useless spawn. The promise of socialism is that someone else will do the toiling – and that someone is always the people who reject socialism.

You guessed right! It’s normal Americans once again, the draft horses of America, who will be expected to carry their own weight as well as the weight of all the cool kidz in Brooklyn and ‘Frisco. But as my upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy demonstrates in vicious and hilarious detail, Normals are getting tired of snobs who disrespect and despise them while simultaneously expecting them to maintain, feed, fuel, and defend this country all by themselves.

The socialist cheerleaders don’t want to be normal. Normality requires work. They want to be part of an elite that will run things from their progressive urban coastal enclaves, and in socialism there’s always a lot of running things going on. But they always assume that once the revolution comes, they will be the ones running things, clothed in government authority and making all the economic decisions that individuals and their companies make today.

None of them imagine they will be the ones stuck with the dirty jobs – they dream of being commissars, not garbagemen.

SJWism is perfect training for the aspiring cog in the totalitarian oppression machine – policing campuses for forbidden thought teaches them the skills they can put into action policing society for forbidden thought.

I wrote about what these wannabe Bolsheviks will do if they aren’t stopped in my novels People’s Republic and Indian Country, which depict both the nightmarish world they seek to create and the proper response to tyranny by American patriots.

Spoiler:
All Normal American citizens should take advantage of their First and Second Amendment rights to act to prevent leftist tyranny – at least, until some majority of leftist judges decides that the rights of free speech, a free press, and to keep and bear arms don’t actually exist just because they are there in the text, but the right to force others to give you free stuff and to “pronoun justice” do exist because of penumbras and emanations and reasons.

Now, democratic socialists will always deny that getting on the pathway to tyranny will lead to tyranny, and they will always tell you that true socialism has never been achieved. Basically, their argument is that we should throw out the ideology that brought the world the freest and most prosperous country in human history and instead give an ideology that has failed every single time it’s been attempted yet another shot because they are tired of paying for the things they want.

This is not a compelling argument for Normals, who have enough life experience to realize that things that fail every single time they are tried are certain to fail again.

Socialism’s perfect record of failure, misery, and slaughter is kind of a problem for them, so they pivot and distract, playing an ideological shell game by claiming that what they really want isn’t socialism. Why, they just to be more like Canada! This, of course, begs the question of why they call themselves “socialists” if they don’t want socialism.

But Normals are woke; they prefer their freedom and abundant toilet paper. They know that the current socialist fad is a lie, because socialism is built on lies. The democratic socialists keep promising Denmark and Norway, and but they always deliver Cuba and Venezuela.

    In political science, Democratic Socialism is a step to the left from Social Democracy (arguably what we now have). The millennials may have a sophomoric affinity for DS, but have no idea what it means in practice.

    A case in point is that know-all little spicess in the US, who’s now finding out that all she really knows is FA.

      Two well known Christian Socialists: Former UK PM Blair and former OZ PM Rudd.

      It amused me when Opposition Leader Rudd was interviewed on ABC Compass during a meet the political leaders series before the 2007 federal election. He proudly described himself as a Christian Socialist.

      When the election campaign got underway he claimed to be a fiscal conservative.

        An “old fashioned Christian socialist”, as I recall, DT. He won’t be going to Heaven after all the lies he’s told and corruption he’s facilitated. Then there’re the four deceased sparkies …

    These modern young socialists need reminding about the prosperity they have enjoyed since they were born because of free market capitalism.

    Explain to them why Communist China and Russia turned to capitalism, because they envied the wealth and prosperity enjoyed by Americans specifically and other capitalist countries.

      They’re happy to talk the talk, but if you waved a handful of free tickets to Venezuela you’d get very few takers.

    Joe Blogs on a roll this day, the fingers are jumping over the key board… the little Princes and Princess’s of todays world believe all should be free as they do nothing to create any wealth . The Universe should provide it all, as the Greens wish all go back to cave living with wood to heat and cook and snakes as pets. (the snakes we have now, are the Government Ministers pushing NEG

    Quote: “a poisonous nineteenth-century political death cult”.
    I think it was far more 20th century than 19th – certainly it was the 20th century when it claimed “north of 100 million corpses to its accursed credit”.

      Someone coined the phrase “Invincible ignorance of the true zealot”

    • Neville 12/08/2018, 2:00 am

      I’m sure the author meant overall, LBL. At least,that’s the way I read it.
      It certainly IS a 19th-century abortion, and it certainly is a death cult – no less one than mohammadenism.
      And ‘north of 100 million corpses’ is almost certainly a big understatement by historians anxious to not be perceived as being TOO out of line with present political correct language. I found a little websearching provides some good number (in places) and it’s almost certainly a LONG way north of 100 million – some sources acknowledge the 100M, and estimate it’s actually around a quarter of a BILLION, perhaps even half a billion.
      After all, the disg-socs (disgusting socialists) have had a good hundred years to get the process working smoothly and efficiently. The Bolsheviks, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Castro, Guevara, Mao, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, … …
      Still, even half a billion is small beer compared to that creeping noxious plague on humanity, mohammadenism. Best guesses there, from 6th century to the present, is “north of 5 billion or so”.

    The only way to get rid of this ever growing cancer is to kill it off with an equivalent of chemo-therapy…lots of fiercely patriotic citizen armed with heavily ammoed weapons willing to inject some lethal antidotes to this rotten plague. It’s getting closer to a day of reckoning.

    Socialism, whatever the prefix, is simply legalised theft. Once the store has been looted the shelves never get re-stocked.

    These millennial simpletons are just like the baby-boomers simpletons I grew up with – the ones who believed that “It’s Time” in 1972 – then saw what happened and voted overwhelmingly for Fraser in 1975.

    Sadly there are many still around who seem to think that wealth is like the magic pudding – that you can keep taking without ever contributing. They just don’t understand that wealth is not a static thing; that it has to be created on a daily basis. They can’t grasp that bread does not bake itself and neither can they grasp that the baker isn’t going to bake bread for nothing other than the “common good”.

    Perhaps the best example of communism versus capitalism and the merits of each is provided by the German car industry 1946-1990. Capitalist West Germany produced the BMW, Porche, VW, Mercedes, Audi, Opel and they produced plenty of them. Any west German could buy a new car any day of the week and it actually worked. An east German could put in an order for a 600cc 2-stroke Trabant and would wait a full 2 years for delivery – and it was just a pile of unreliable rubbish/scrap metal. My lawnmower is more sophisticated and more powerful than a Trabant. My law mower has a twin cylinder over-head cam 4-stroke engine of 700cc producing about 24HP with an infinitely variable gearbox. And it works.

    Does anyone remember junk like the Lada cars from the USSR? My ex’s father was a farmer and he bought a tractor made in the east Bloc, I think it was a “Polaris” or something like that. It was a copy of a Steiger or Case tractor and looked the goods – plus it was less than half the price of an American or West European tractor – and it was a pile of junk. It lasted about 2 days before parts began failing. After about a year he bought a 2nd hand Case tractor that was about 10 years old and it worked far better than the new communist-made one.

      But Comrade, we are paid to work or not too work and today is just another day in the factory by order of the local Commissar and if we fail to turn up he might punish us by denying our family bread from the commune baker shop.

      My neighbour is sent to a potato farm each working day but told me there will be a shortage because the workers have decided to leave the digging to other workers who have decided to leave the digging to other workers.

      Maybe there will be meat this week at the commune butchery?

    In the US socialism is the new ‘flavour’ according to the teeming thousands of idiots wasting everybody’s time and money by doing college/university de-education. Encouraged (demanded) by redder than red lecturers who don’t teach anymore. Propagandising is their life’s choice. Until the Republicans wake up to the fact and do something concrete about this looming disaster, socialism is on its ugly way to taking control.

    • Neville 12/08/2018, 2:02 am

      .. if towel-heads don’t beat them.
