Socialists don’t really believe in the socialism they peddle...

... They love money, Amazon, mansions and cars ( Lets not forget iPhones )

Can we dispel, once and for all, the notion that “socialists” -- “democratic” or otherwise -- actually believe in the socialism they peddle?

“Socialists” love money, guns, walls, fossil fuels, Amazon, meat, private jets and cars, luxury apartments, mansions, and paying low taxes as much as anyone else.

“Socialists” just want everyone else controlled under their rule of tyranny.

Venezuela socialism has killed at least 21 people with their Socialist black out.
And of course they blame it on the U.S.

When you don't do maintenance and repairs on the equipment and it stops of course it's the fault of the U.S.

Probably because the equipment was manufactured in the US and it didn't come with instructions in spanish.
Look at the infastructure in Puerto Rico, same problem, same language. I rest my case.
I certainly couldn't be corruption and incompetence?

Of course they do, places like DSA (O-C claims membership) even put it in print.
“As a democratic, grassroots organization, DSA is continuing the political revolution for the long term. By paying dues, DSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation. No one is turned away for lack of funds. We invite you to join us today!”

The GOP and Fox keep trying these idiofic tactics using the word Socialism like it’s a new Red Scare, keep wasting your energy, it’s not taking hold.

This insane opinion piece has a photo of Warren, but then never mentions her in the article, some A+ reporting there. Maybe it’s because she’s a “Capitalist to her Bones“.

Bernie has been in Congress for decades, he’s made very little impact, he won’t be the presidential nominee. AOC is a freshman in Congress, one of 89! She is younger than 30 and can use social media effectively, I love the palpitaions this is causing daily on the right! Let Fox keep saying she runs the Democratic party, just reinforces that channel’s skewed view of reality.

Want to talk about nuts? Look at how the GOP’s recent presidential nominee reacted to a Birthday cake....he takes each candle off the cake, one by one, and then blows them out. You people think this is normal? Why do you keep picking such weirdos?

:lmao:

That is a fat load. She was promising the goodies not two weeks ago, is just now realizing it's a loser and THAT is why she's lying through her teeth and pretending to be a capitalist.

Socialism is something many of us recognize because we're, well, educated. We don't need anyone to tell us what is and isn't Socialism - we already know. I don't need Fox or Tucker Carlson or Rush Limbaugh to point it out to me.

I also don't need them to point out that AOC basically runs the Democrat Party. She is their superstar. She is on all the shows, gets showcased at libfests like SXSW, and is generally idolized by every prog down in Progville. You are really under a rock if you think only Fox is talking about her.

Socialism

“various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods”

Give 1, just 1 example of Elizabeth Warren calling for this. The above is what Socialism is, show me, just one case where Elizabeth Warren is calling for the ownership AND (not OR) administration of production and distribution of goods.

Just one.

Should be easy since...
Socialism is something many of us recognize

Universal health care.

Want another one?

Free college.

One more:

Wealth confiscation and redistribution

And one to grow on:

Government control of privately owned businesses.

She calls it "accountable capitalism" but it's really Socialism. She can call it a chocolate coated piggy twist if she wants to, and it will still be Socialism.

Got it, why not just call it communism? You’re twisting the same definition.

By that metric Medicare and Social Security and k - 12 public school is full blown socialism, which it’s not.

Maybe you’re a fan of the “Hollyweird” getting their brats into elite schools they didn’t even want to go to, you see that other headline from today? Who cares about Joe Q. Public?

Play the Limbaugh playbook, call her a socialist. But it’s not socialism, at least not by the accepted definition from the the last 80+ years.

But twist it, manipulate it for your message, be a good Trumpite.

Yeah yeah :bigwhoop:

"Accountable capitalism" isn't a thing. Neither is "democratic socialism". They made those terms up so their crazy ideas would sound more palatable and get people like you to insist that they're not promoting Socialism.

But she’s not promoting Socialism

She never said she is promoting Socialism

She declared herself a Capitalist

Limbaugh called her a Socialist, which you parroted

She isn’t a Socialist.

It is really too bad sptibubble has me on ignore..maybe...just maybe she could learn something.

Truby posted the definition of socialism: “various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

Poor sptibubble didn't bother to read it...or is just too monumentally stupid to understand it.

"Universal health care": not socialism...unless everyone sees a govt paid doctor, is treated at a govt run hospital, and provided medicines produced and supplied by the govt.

"Free College": by definition not socialism. That is just stupid to claim "free college" is socialism....its a stupid idea, but it is not socialism. The govt doesn't own all the colleges...

"Wealth confiscation and re-distribution": by definition again not socialism. Taxation is not socialism.

"Govt control of privately owned businesses": again, by defintion, spitbubble is wrong. a system of PRIVATELY OWNED businesses is NOT socialism. To be socialist the GOVERNMENT MUST OWN AND CONTROL THE BUSINESS.

As usual, the concept is not that hard to understand...unless your are too stupid to read/understand the definition OR you are too hard headed to understand that Rush Limbaugh and Fox "News" are more biased than MSNBC, CNN and WaPo combined.

The weak of mind and intellect need boogeymen.
