So, Karl Marx has a statue now

One of the most evil and demented men in history He helped birth Communism, which has killed more than 100,000,000 people and tortured/imprisoned/enslaved countless millions more

 A larger than life statue of Communist philosopher Karl Marx was unveiled Saturday on the 200th anniversary of his birth in the western German town of Trier.

The celebratory uncovering of the 4.4-meter (14-foot) bronze statue of Marx, donated by China, sparked criticism by some who blame Marx for crimes committed by social revolutionaries in Russia, China and elsewhere in the name of Communism.

About 200 guests, including a delegation from China, applauded during the anniversary celebrations, when a bright red cover was lifted from the statue which depicts Marx with a frock and his signature bushy beard.

Marx laid the philosophical foundations for Communism, an ideology that aims for shared ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes. He explained his thoughts in two famous works, the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital.

 

Ah, yes, the blessings of Communism

It is May Day today, and I know some brain donors are celebrating the joys of Marxism, so I will post this reality check, via Moonbattery as to what Communism actually does

As liberals praise Karl Marx and prepare to impose his ideology on the USA, let’s check in to see how it has been working out in Venezuela:

When Yolanda Abreu got her check for severance pay after five years working as a cardiologist, she let out a laugh of sheer disbelief: it was barely enough for a cup of coffee.

Like her, millions of Venezuelans have seen their salaries decimated by rampant hyperinflation that is expected to drive prices up by 13,000 percent this year, IMF figures show.

Her story hit the headlines after she tweeted a photo of the check for 156,584.29 bolivars, which equates to about $0.20 on the black market.

You can get a coffee for 20¢ in Venezuela? Not at Starbucks, you can’t. Then again, Starbucks may have to lower its prices after its new racial pandering policies reduce it to a homeless shelter. That’s the March of Progress.

Don’t worry about the inflation in Venezuela. The Workers’ President can fix it by raising the minimum wage some more.

On the eve of International Workers Day, Venezuela’s embattled President Nicolas Maduro moved to double the monthly minimum wage, raising it by 95.4 percent to 2,555,500 bolivars — or $37 (30 euros), according to the central bank’s official DICOM rate.

Boy, that sounds just awesome huh?

The Left really hates White guys………..

…………And White women, White children, White babies, because it seems hate and genocide are values held dear by Leftists. Of course an examination of the history of Marxism, and all the bastard “isms” it spawned this evil should not surprise us

This Is A Real Article: Beyond Pro-Choice: The Solution to White Supremacy is White Abortion

In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and, most critically, white children, with full dominion over the enslaved and oppressed people of color that were forced to uphold these micro-fiefdoms.

It is no surprise, then, that America’s fascination with the white family unit has gone hand-in-hand with the historical proliferation of white supremacy. After Bacon’s Rebellion, white micro-fieftans thought it necessary to expand the definition of white family to encompass the entirety of white society, so as to coerce the working class to fight amongst itself based on racial lines. Whites are embedded from birth with the sense of common white identity, and this identity conditions them to replicate the white family unit, thus furthering the cycle of white supremacy in America. That is why the white family unit must be destroyed.

See, destroyed! But abortions are, well, constitutional so, that is bad, because WHITE MEN!

The Constitution was drafted and signed by white men, for white men. Slavery was Constitutional. The “right” to terrorize citizens through the bearing of arms is Constitutional. So-called “due process,” in which white juries condone the murder of innocent black men, is a Constitutional process. Being Constitutional does not make something progressive or innately valuable. In fact, Constitutionality is often synonymous with “exclusively beneficial to the white race.”

Should I endeavor to inject some reason here? What the heck, why not? Yes slavery was constitutional, was, as in past tense. That was corrected through a constitutional process. Yes, we do have a right to keep and bear arms, that right comes from God, not the constitution, and is enjoyed by people of all races. To say such a right has anything to do with terrorizing people is beyond demented frankly. Such nonsense could only come from a mind devoid of all reason. A mind that favors genocide and barbarity to achieve its evil ends

White women: it is time to do your part! Your white children reinforce the white supremacist society that benefits you. If you claim to be progressive, and yet willingly birth white children by your own choice, you are a hypocrite. White women should be encouraged to abort their white children, and to use their freed-up time and resources to assist women of color who have no other choice but to raise their children. Women of color are in need of financial and humanitarian resources. As this white supremacist society continues to imprison black fathers, women of color are forced to stand alone in their plight to raise the next generation of Americans. White women: instead of devoting your time and energy to white children who will reinforce the struggles of women of color, how about asking women of color in what ways you can assist them in their self-liberation? How about adopting children of color who have lost their parents to the destructive white supremacist society that you have enabled and encouraged?

Of course, the best choice is to act preventatively to ensure that white children are not at risk of being born.

Behold the true face of Marxism, and of Leftism. It is cold, brutal, barbaric, inhuman, in short evil. Behold the rantings of someone whose mindset is no different from that of Stalin or Mao, or Pol Pot, or Hitler. 

H/T to 90 Miles From Tyranny where Mike Miles asks the obvious question

Wouldn’t it be faster to march white people into ovens?

Mike sees what the end result of calling for the eradication of White babies, which the column favors, will be. The lunatic that wrote the piece calls for the elimination of White families. It is easy for us to see very clearly where that road ends. Of course with the left the ends justify the means, no matter how barbaric. The 100,000,000 plus souls who were slaughtered in the last century in the name of Marx are a tragic testament to this! This also tells us why the left wants gun control so desperately.

Equality or Liberty?

Milton Friedman, being a wise man, said, quite correctly, that we cannot have both liberty and equality. You might have one, or the other, but never both. Why is this you might wonder. After all, many politicians, pundits, and media types use the two terms almost as if they were entirely interchangeable. Of course, they, quite foolishly also do this with democracy and republic, bu that is a different topic. So why can’t we have equality and liberty? Consider this story, by Nate Madden from Conservative Review

Earlier this week, four churches filed federal suit against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts over its now-infamous “bathroom bill,” contending that it infringes upon their basic First Amendment rights.

The law, which went into effect at the beginning of the month, comes alongside guidance from the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD):

“Places of public accommodation may not discriminate against, or restrict, a person from services because of that person’s gender identity … Even a church could be seen as a place of public accommodation if it holds a secular event, such as a spaghetti supper, that is open to the general public.”

A similar case in Iowa popped up over the summer, where the government quickly backpedaled after enough public pressure. However, Massachusetts is a whole new ball game. Despite the protests and media coverage that blanketed the issue, it would appear that everything is going forward as written and that houses of God are now required by law to keep their views on the nature of man and woman to themselves, lest they face fines and/or up to a year in prison.

Could we have a more concise case of how “equality” as defined by the Left, and liberty, as defined by our Founders can not coexist. Equality demands that everyone, have access to any bathroom, no matter their gender or gender identity any time they wish. This, the Leftist minds believes is equality. But, shouldn’t a church have a right to decide if they have unisex restrooms, or men’s and women’s rooms? Really, I would argue shouldn’t any business hold that same right? I can argue this position because, I, unlike the Left believes in liberty. So, if a church., or business decides to have separate facilities fine. If they choose to have single stall restrooms, fine. If they decide to have restrooms open to anyone fine. That is their right.

Liberty is messy isn’t it? In a nation that has freedom of expression and speech, we will all hear and see things that aggrieve us. In a free country, we will have neighbors that live quite differently than we do, who worship differently, who hold very different views on politics, culture, and everything else. That is liberty! And liberty ensures equality of opportunity, equal treatment under the law, and protects or liberties equally. But the Left loathes such ideals for the same basic reason they loathe liberty, they are Collectivists, and Collectivism certainly demands equality be enforced by the State.

Think of what the Left’s view of equality really requires? It requires empowering the State to mandate equality. What would that mean? It would mean that the government would be powerful enough to decide what type of housing you might live in. After all, if you live in a three-story mansion and someone else lives in a trailer, that is inequality. What kind of car you might drive, because you Audi A5 and my Ford Fusion are not equal. What else might an  “Equality Enforcement Agency” take control of?

How much money you make? Check!

How much property you own? Check!

How many kids you have? Check!

Your health care? Check! Check! Checkmate!

What type of food you buy, grow, or eat? Check!

You can see how equality as defined by Collectivists and liberty, as defined by Individualists are wholly incompatible. These two competing ideologies are the root of every difference between the Left and Right. Individualism, and its values, and principles has been championed by people like Locke, Mason, Madison, Franklin, Jefferson, Prager, Williams, and Sowell. Collectivism, has been espoused by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Obama, Clinton, and the majority of the Democratic Party. 

In closing, understand one thing about Leftist equality. That equality demands everyone, except the elites, of course, be equal. A look at the history of Communism gives us a lesson on the pursuit of Utopian equality. That pursuit has led to poverty, starvation, slavery to the State, and complete destruction of individual liberty. But, that is OK with the Left, because equality of destitution is still equality, and equality is the goal. Not success, not competition, not limited government, not pursuing your dreams. All of those are by products of liberty, and liberty, although it makes everyone’s plight better and gives true opportunity to all, leads to inequality. To the Left equality, even equality of destitution and misery is preferable to inequality. The consequences of Marxism, and all its bastard “isms” matter not. 

Have you heard the one about Venezuelans descending into the Marxist Abyss?

Because Marxism is funny to dictators

As every country that has tried it knows, not only is socialism immoral and inherently tyrannical, it does not work. Ask Venezuelans, half of whom are ready to abandon their own country. Under end stage socialism, food is scarce:

There are dire reports of people waiting in supermarket lines all day, only to discover that expected food deliveries never arrived and the shelves are empty.

There are horrific tales of desperate people slaughtering zoo animals to provide their only meal of the day. Even household pets are targeted as a much-needed source for food.

President Maduro is doubling down on the proven failed policies and philosophies of “Bolivarian Socialism,” while diverting attention away from the crisis — pointing fingers at so-called “enemies” of Venezuela such as the United States, Saudi Arabia and others.

A dozen eggs was last reported to cost $150, and the International Monetary Fund predicts that inflation in Venezuela will hit 720% this year.

A country rich in resources has become a starvation state. But at least socialist ruler Nicolas Maduro has kept his sense of humor:

To the outrage of many in Venezuela, embattled President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday jokes about the shortages and hardship under his administration.

“The Maduro diet. Makes you hard without needing any Viagra,” said Maduro Sunday, laughing, during an exchange with the audience.

Maduro had asked a man in the audience, “why are you so skinny?” To which several people in the audience responded, on live television: “That’s the Maduro diet!”

The “Maduro diet” is what Venezuelans call slow starvation due to economic dysfunction inflicted by the socialist government.

Get that punchline? People are starving, they are unable to get medicines, medical care, or even properly bury their dead, but to Maduro, it is  funny somehow! Suffering is funny because Marxism brings equality comrades. Sure it is always equality of hunger, sickness, suffering and slavery to the State but none of that matters because equality is Utopia! No, as a wise man said, you can have equality or liberty, but you cannot have both. And the results? Well they matter not because in the pursuit of “equality” the individual seeks to matter, and in fact, becomes the enemy. And the Marxist will never admit the evil of their ideology

Hugo Chávez has been dead for more than three years, and the results of his irresponsible fiscal policies and criminally despotic rule have finally come to light in the form of pain and misery.

Images of Hospitals that look like catacombs, and prisons that have become maximum security business centers for criminals where no law applies, have become a reference when speaking about the country. But the wound goes much deeper than that.

We’re not just talking about shortages of basic staples such as toilet paper and soap, or daily electricity cuts, the five-day weekends for public employees, or about any of those stories that have turned Venezuela into a punchline with a seat at the United Nations Human Rights Council. No. The economic collapse at the hands of chavista economic policies has brought something deadlier, and so much simpler: hunger.

Children who eat once or twice a day, who don’t go to school because they don’t have the energy. Families of four sharing a portion for one person. These stories have become as common as social media posts from people hunting for medicine to tend the ailments of their loved ones. This is the new kind of misery porn that has been drawing attention to Venezuela. A country that squandered close to a Trillion Dollars of oil revenue under chavista rule. Try to wrap your head around that sum for a sec. And now try to refocus on the country that today drowns in a humanitarian crisis. It’s as if the rate of the fall is proportional to the income received and wasted.

And yet, the Maduro administration remains paralyzed. If Chávez was guilty for the decisions that steered Venezuela onto this collision course, then Maduro’s sin is inaction, watching as the country crashes into the iceberg without lifting a finger, except forcefully preventing anyone else taking the helm.

Sadder still is that right now, today, in America, the nation that better than any other, illustrates how Capitalism and individual liberties benefit all, college students are being taught that Marxism and all the bastard “isms’ it spawned give power to the people, and provide for everyone’s needs. Right now, people here, in this nation, look at policies that are rooted in Marxism and swoon. Just look at both presidential candidates proposals on how to make child care “more affordable”. Of course we now have “affordable” health insurance because of Obama Care right? Yeah, how is that working out? And how about our tax code? It is confiscatory, and punitive, as graduated income taxes, another Marxist ideal, always are. Look at our out of control regulatory overlords that work for the alphabet soup of governmental agencies. 

The biggest tragedy of Marxism is that the fools who buy into its false promises never learn from the actual history of Marxism. They never learn from 110,000,000 that it killed in the last century. The gulags of the Soviet Union of the past, or from the modern-day gulags in North Korea. The trampling of liberty? Who cares about that, the lemmings want their promised free stuff. The inherent destruction of everything good that Marxism always brings? Bah, tell the lemmings what they want to hear, to Hell with facts. So, the destruction will come again, and again, and again. And people will continue to believe the lies, the sweet promises that always bring destitution and misery rather than paradise.

I can not bring my mind to envision a more disturbing scenario. History lays out, indisputably, how the American model our Founders laid out, brings prosperity, opportunity, and liberty. That same history also illustrates how the Marxist path leads to evil ends. Yet some, many in fact simply will not see. Yesterday it was Russia and China, today it is North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela, tomorrow, it will be…………May God help us

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is Joy Reid

If you have never heard of Joy Reid, you are not alone, she appears on MSNBS, which has some ratings issues mainly because it is a Left wing network that hires Left wing nuts like, well, Joy Reid. The Right Scoop has a video of Reid, pretending to be both snarky and funny

I love that Reid is angry that Robertson did not see abuse of Blacks where he grew up. How the Hell does this moron know what Robertson saw in those days? She doesn’t. But, Robertson is not allowed to give his testimony about life in Louisiana in the 1950’s. NO! He must say that he witnessed horrible things, even if he did not. He dared challenge the narrative, and that is not allowed. With the Left it is all about narratives, and that includes history.
