Omar tells Sanders supporters, he will ‘fight against western imperialism’

 

Rep. Ilhan Omar says she is excited Sen. Bernie Sanders will “fight against western imperialism.”

“I am beyond honored and excited for a president that will fight against western imperialism and fight for a just world,” Omar said during a Sanders campaign rally in Minneapolis.

 

Omar could only praise comrade Sanders, who spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union. We are to forget the Soviet Union wasn’t on everyone’s bucket list as a travel destination. This at the height of the cold war. That he is even polling a number tells us what has happened to our educational system.

“The fight for human rights is undeniable. And when we recognize injustices of the past and present,” Omar said. “Whether it is genocide against Jewish people, Armenians or Rwandans or Bosnians or Native Americans or more. We realize that that recognition isn’t about punishing our political foes, but leading within a moral obligation.”

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Fascism – Which party supports it?

 

by Mustang

America’s political left continually refer to conservatives as “fascists.”  Is this true?  Hardly —and here’s why.  We must begin with an understanding of what fascism really means, who started it, and what was that person’s overlying political philosophy.

We know, for example, that the father of capitalism was Adam Smith (1723-1790), a Scottish philosopher and a key figure in the Scottish enlightenment.  And we know that the father of Marxism was Karl Marx (1818-1883).

Giovanni Gentile

Most people, however, do not know the name of the person who started “fascism.”  There is a reason we do not know that much about Giovanni Gentile (1875-1944): most academic historians, who identify with leftist politics, have worked overtime to erase Gentile from our memory.  But, in his own time, Gentile was one of the most influential philosophers.

Giovanni Gentile believed that there were two diametrically opposed forms of democracy.  The first was liberal democracy, which we Americans sometimes call “classical liberalism.”  This was what our founding fathers believed.

Gentile thought of this as individualistic, overly focused on human liberty and personal rights.  He thought of this, not as unalienable rights, but as socially selfish.  The other form, according to Gentile, was “true Democracy,” which occurs when individuals willingly subordinate themselves to the will of the state.

In a manner similar to Karl Marx, Gentile argued for a society that was formed much like a family, a condition in which all of us faced life’s challenges “together.”  We have witnessed this peculiar view in the statements, platforms, and policies of the Democratic Party.

In 1984, Governor Mario Cuomo argued that America is much like an extended family, where, through the government, people take care of each other.  Thirty years later, in 2012, Democrats argued that “government is the only thing we all belong to.”

Giovanni Gentile was a man of leftist politics.  He was a committed socialist, and in his mind, fascism was a form of socialism —and, indeed, the only workable form.  Whereas Marx sought to organize people based on class, Gentile wanted to arrange society based on class and national identity.  In other words, Gentile believed that fascists were socialists with a national identity; it distinguishes them from others, with similar beliefs, from other countries.

One may recall that the Nazis of Germany were “National Socialists.”  Gentile believed that all society should be organized to serve the public interests.  There was no room for private interests.  The administrative arm of society was, in Gentile’s view, the state.  To submit to the will of society was to acquiesce to the will of the state —not just in economic issues, but in all matters affecting society.  And, since everything in society is political, the people must empower the state to tell everyone how to think, and what to do.

The first national leader to convert Gentile’s philosophy into action was Benito Mussolini (1883-1945), the Italian dictator who controlled Italy from 1922 to 1943.  Mussolini once proclaimed, “All is in the state, and nothing human exists or has value outside the state.”  It was a statement that paraphrased the philosophy of Giovanni Gentile.

Americans today do not remember Gentile because leftist academics have successfully erased him from our memory.  What does remain, however, is his philosophy, which has been entirely adopted by the American political left.  Renamed, it is the philosophy of the Progressive Movement in the United States.

It does not require a political scholar to realize that Progressive politics, that is to say, the Democratic Party, has vastly expanded state control over the private sector.  We can see this in matters of economics, education, banking, and energy.

State directed capitalism is exactly what German and Italian governments implemented in the 1930’s.  Importantly, American leftists cannot acknowledge Gentile because in doing so, it would become the glue that binds American progressivism to fascism.

So let us now review: what do conservatives want?  They demand smaller government and expanded personal freedom.  They demand liberty.  The American political left wants to achieve the opposite: the resources of the individual and industry in the service of a centralized state, such as exists in Russia and China.

Were the American pollical left to acknowledge Giovanni Gentile, they would have to also acknowledge that fascism bears a deep kinship to the ideology to the Democratic Party.

Are fascists part of the conservative right?  No.  They are clearly the spawn of the ideology and political philosophy of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Maxine Waters, and a host of other un-American idiots like Peter Buttigieg, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib.

Thinking Americans should know world history … our country’s survival depends on this knowledge.  Fascist, thy name is Democrat.

Brits Labour Party plans to abolish and confiscate private schools

 

Best hustle out to your local theatre and catch “Downton Abby” for a view of the last vestige of the once great Great Britain. If Brexit was a problem for the UK and Boris Johnson, let’s look at what Corbyn’s Labor party has in store-

Nigel Farage: “I’ve no doubt, Mr McDonnell, you all want us to be dragged down to the bottom in your new Marxist state.”

Boris Johnson

Leaders of elite private schools have vented outrage over Labour’s plan to abolish them, branding the policy “incredulous” [sic] and an “act of unprecedented vandalism”.

Jeremy Corbyn’s party voted at their conference to integrate all private schools into the state sector if they win the next election.

….

“It doesn’t feel like I’m living in the UK any more,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Properties and funds held by private schools would be “redistributed democratically and fairly” across the country’s educational institutions as part of the reforms.

Private schools’ charitable status would also be scrapped and universities forced to limit their intake of privately educated students to just 7 per cent – the same proportion as in the wider population.

Boris Johnson also called it a “pointless attack” on the education system, adding that it was based on a “long-buried socialist ideology”.

Mr Adshead, head of the fee-paying Old Vicarage School in Derbyshire, said: “For me it seems quite incredulous [sic] that in 2019 I’m discussing whether my private land will be seized and then redistributed.” More at Independent UK

Nigel Farage: Abolishing Private Schools Is Communism

How far behind are we?

NY Times Celebrates Communist Mao Zedong as “One of History’s Great Revolutionary Figures”

 

One can only wonder at the fascination so many have with so many murdering dictators. Mao’s birthday was yesterday. Guess what. A NY Times reporter apparently had it on their calendar. Lucky us.

The New York Times honored mass murdering communist tyrant Mao Zedong yesteray as “One of History’s Great Revolutionary Figures.”

This was posted on the New York Times archives Twitter account.

 

 

On second thought, maybe forgetting that 50 or 60 million dead occurred during his regime wasn’t the best idea…

Just more fake news.

A comment:

Bear in mind that the New York Times got a fake Pulitzer prize in the 1930s for covering up the 6 million Ukrainian middle class farmers starved to death by Stalin. The failing New York Times also completely fraudulently misrepresented Fidel Castro and his intentions with endless Communist propaganda before he seized power.

But then again, the National Education Association had the “birth”of China on their calendar –

NEA: Let’s celebrate communism!

 

Teachers’ union promotes Mao’s launch of ‘People’s Republic’

The National Education Association is suggesting its teachers and NEA-connected schools celebrate China on the anniversary of the repressive communist regime’s violent founding.

The NEA’s website has a page called Diversity Events and lists Oct. 1 as the day to celebrate Chairman Mao’s successful revolution.

 

University of North Carolina-Wilmington Criminal Justice professor Mike Adams says the NEA’s position is borne out of intellectual arrogance.

“Well, the next thing you know they’ll be celebrating the birth of Nazi Germany, but certainly that would be anti-climactic, because communist China has killed more people than Nazi Germany,” Adams said.

“I think the only one way to describe the arrogant hubris of these pseudo-intellectuals is that they’re ‘holier than thou,’” Adams said.

It too was reported that this event was later removed from the calendar.

Just for old times sake when I first started this blog –

Obama celebrates 60 years of Chinese Rule- Millions Slaughtered

 

 

The astounding image of the building’s top aglow in red and yellow to commemorate the birth of Red China. Yes, unbelievably, the Empire State last October paused to recognize Mao’s communist China, which was responsible for 60-70 million deaths, the single greatest slaughter of humanity in history, dwarfing Hitler’s terror by six-fold.

The Empire State Building in New York City will glow red and yellow Wednesday night to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.  “What’s next, Marx, Lenin and Trotsky’s birthday’s too?” one blogger wrote.

“What about Allah while we’re honoring our enemies under the ‘Commie Obammie’ administration?” Another: “While we’re at it, let’s light up the Rockefellor Center with a big swastika on red lights?”

Others blamed the ESB’s color scheme on President Obama: “I thought by ‘change’ that President Obama meant socialized healthcare, higher taxes, and a bloated nanny-state there to take care of my every need. But not this!”

Bernie Sanders: Abortion Rights Help Curb Population Growth to Combat Climate Change

 

Wow. Poor countries need to have more abortions to combat climate change. So says Bernie Sanders. The Marxists going back to their old ways. Bernie takes abortion one step beyond the other candidates. Conflates it with climate change, so anyone who has a little bitty doubt about killing off one’s offspring can glom on to the concept they are helping saving the planet. I include a couple of earlier stories just so we are all clear where the Left plans on taking us.

 

I was thinking of doing a new story on cannibalism – but I had done one before from Newsweek

Newsweek: Time to re-think the taboo on cannibalism?

Since cannibalism is found throughout the animal kingdom and therefore is something natural, perhaps it is time for humans to rethink the “ultimate taboo” against eating human flesh, Newsweek proposes in an article this week.

I posted earlier  The Economist alarmed that poor people are eating more meat around the world

Poor people eating more meat means it is ‘bad news for the environment.’ That means they will live longer, healthier lives. More global warming. Poor people. They need to start thinking of the environment instead of survival and what not.

 So humans next on the Bill of Fare?

So glad Bernie has come up with a solution apparently.

Fabian Socialists. This is where good old Bernie wants to take us.

Chicago Teachers Union visits Venezuela, returns with high praise

Four representatives of the Chicago Teachers Union, including a member of its executive board, visited Venezuela and returned with high praise for the socialist polices of President Nicolás Maduro.

So starts the story of those apparently living in an alternative universe. What is worse, these are the teachers who are indoctrinating the children. Chicago, the bastion of all that can go wrong with a city, gives us a chilling insight. The very same people opposed to charter schools and will do all they can to insure incompetent teachers remain in their positions. Who are more than willing to enjoy the largesse of the taxpayers with extraordinary benefits.

The Chicago Teachers Union retweeted a link with this photo from the blog Radical Educator Collective, which was created by the group that called itself a “CTU delegation” to Venezuela. (Radical Educator Collective photo)

Union leadership had approved a resolution several months ago criticizing U.S. sanctions and intervention in Venezuela, including the efforts of President Donald Trump’s administration to delegitimize Maduro and elevate an interim president, Juan Guaidó, during mass citizen resistance to Maduro’s controversial reelection last year.

Here is their resolution:

CTU Resolution to Oppose the Invasion of Venezuela.pdf

11: WHEREAS, the current Trump administration, various European nations, and the  Lima Group in South America, has recently made menacing pronouncements against the sovereign state of Venezuela by discrediting the result of the May 20, 2018, 14 Venezuelan presidential election of Nicolas Maduro, and have backed the self declared “Presidency” of Juan Guaido, President of the National Assembly of Venezuela;…..

While CTU has been clear it did not pay for the four members’ trip to Venezuela, they went as CTU representatives and met with high-level government officials. Reading their social media accounts of the trip, you’d think they visited Mayberry.

In a reflection of the first day here, CTU Area Vice President Sarah Chambers states:

“I’ve already learned so much just within a couple of hours of being in the country. I’m excited to learn more tomorrow about the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela and how it has improved the lives of the Venezuelan people.”

SARAH CHAMBERS, CTU AREA VICE PRESIDENT

This was CTU executive board member Sarah Chambers, who went to Venezuela, quoted on an anti-Trump website:

“Through major economic hardships, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro never closed a single public school or a single health clinic. This stands in stark contrast to our experience in Chicago, where Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed 50 public schools and several mental health clinics in a single year.”

Chambers also posted on social media her astonishment that, during her trip, she “didn’t see a single homeless person.” She and others praised literacy rates in the country and the commune-style culture.

Maybe their Venezuelan hosts took them on a programmed propaganda tour, as one angered CTU member suggested. The teachers must not have seen areas of Caracas where families occasionally dig through rubbish for food, where women sleep on cardboard boxes outside of grocery stores hoping to bring home cornmeal, where ATMs are empty, hospitals are barely staffed and where tuna fish and flour are luxuries.

This from their on the spot reporting:

We walked there planning on just taking a tour, but what we received was so much more.

As an educator, I took this trip not only to gain knowledge on what is actually happening politically in the country, but also to meet with other educators and students to see how the educational system operates in a country that has eradicated illiteracy since 2005.

Did you know thousands of private and public companies have been taken over by rank and file workers in Venezuela? Companies like GoodYear and Kelloggs locked their gates to stop production and sabotage the economy in an effort to make people’s lives harder.

However, the result of this attempt was the exact opposite of the companies expectations – workers returned the next day with bolt cutters and reopened the locked gates to run the companies themselves.

A lot of this was due to the new law passed in 2018 by the Constituent National Assembly (ANC) and the Constitution Law of Productive Worker Councils. This gave workers the support of the state to form worker councils (CTPs) to take over and change production to meet the people’s needs rather than the profit motive.

To be very clear – this was already happening in many Venezuelan factories. The difference is that there is now a law that provides the state’s official support.

Denver City Council winner promised to usher in Communism ‘by any means necessary’

 

Newly elected far far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca has stated that she is “excited to usher” in communism “by any means necessary.” She was elected in a run-off. Congratulations Denver. We have been tip toeing around the topic with euphemisms.

euphemism is a polite expression used in place of words or phrases that might otherwise be considered harsh or unpleasant.

Social Democrats such as the likes of Bernie Sanders is a euphemism that comes to mind. AOCortex comes to mind as well.

“Any means necessary?” Try the slaughter of tens of millions of people. Thats sounds like a phrase wouldn’t you say?

In the end, it is Communism that they all wish for and they have been working at it for decades to bring it to our shores. Indoctrinating our young.

 

 

I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources.

And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new. And I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources.
