Skip to comments.Anyone else seeing more "liberals" openly supporting communism?

I was at a bar in Chehalis, WA where the conversation was very anti-capitalist. The bartender stated that he was pro-communist. I mentioned the fall of the Berlin Wall and he replied that capitalism was going to fall too. This guy is looking at the current recession as a vindication. The bar owner then jumped in to say that capitalism was everything wrong with the country and that things need to change. I pointed out that being a business owner makes her a capitalist. She then said that politics should not be discussed in a bar and ended the discussion. I did not change their minds, but I made a point that she could not refute. There is some kind of cognitive dissonance going on there.
What I have noticed is that the liberals have been flaunting their Marxism since Obama was elected. Is this a trend in your area?
I hope you didn’t tip them.
I hope you did not pay. Drinks should be free and shared equally.
50 USC § 842 - Proscription of Communist Party, its successors, and subsidiary organizations
The Communist Party of the United States, or any successors of such party regardless of the assumed name, whose object or purpose is to overthrow the Government of the United States, or the government of any State, Territory, District, or possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein by force and violence, are not entitled to any of the rights, privileges, and immunities attendant upon legal bodies created under the jurisdiction of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof; and whatever rights, privileges, and immunities which have heretofore been granted to said party or any subsidiary organization by reason of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof, are terminated: Provided, however, That nothing in this section shall be construed as amending the Internal Security Act of 1950, as amended [50 U.S.C. 781 et seq.]
If they were students of history they'd realize where that road has always led before, but then if they were students of history they wouldn't be communists.
Communists are not afraid to come out of the closet and show up their Communist selves anymore..I guess they figured that since their messiah Commie Obama was elected not once but twice, that it shows that this country wants to go full Commie..there is a saying that the only true way that people learn how horrible Communism is is to experience it themselves..Commies love getting free stuff, as long as they are not the ones paying for it, once they have to flip the bill they go berserk
Never underestimate the stupidity of the American voter.
Yes. Absolutely. I know one indirectly who is a subversive communist activist who portrays himself as a “fiscal conservative”. His last claim before I cut him off socially was that obamacare would save us all money.
Minnesota. I left that sh!thole two years ago to go back to Texas.Any criticism of Obamessiah was blasphemy.
Read Greenfields latest ....he identifies who Obama and his cronies are.....what the real war is...and why they are easily ram-roding over us....until we identify they are operating with an agenda without rules we will loose until we also play without them.
California liberals CLEARLY told that the petition they are signing is to institute a “NAZI-STYLE”, “ORWELLIAN”, “POLICE STATE”.....
Unsurprisingly, they sign it no problem.
Well, let’s see: Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Clinton, not to mention the foaming at the mouth types like Sanders, Grayson, & Schakowsky.
Now that they are bored with Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga and are ready to move on, it looks like the next big thing for the young skulls of mush is communism and police states. You can’t fix stupid.
Liberals have been flaunting their Marxism for decades, only most would never dare admit to being communists, even indignantly refuting such an "accusation".
Obama's installation as Marxist-in-chief must have been the tipping point when they felt safe to come out of the closet. The closet door was made of glass, so it's not like they had been truly hiding behind it or behind any of their "pro-American" (e.g. pro-labor union, pro-illegal al-- er I mean immigrant Dreamer) leftist bullsh!t.
These Amalekites/Balaams/Balaks/Hamans desire to undermine and curse America with their pile-of-dead-bodies ideology.
They smell blood.
Wait till they start demonizing private property. It’s coming.
Oh definitely...it's impossible to reason with people who are sold on the liberal minded agenda....even when they see the truth in front of them...it makes no difference whatsoever...they do not want to here the truth! Their egos and pride are so off the scale there is no way they can see or care to see what's really happening to this country. What I get most of the time is they stop discussion altogether...they are comfortable living in the matrix Obama and liberals have created for them....and that will one day be fully exposed...but only as "Obamanation" falls.
The bar owner then jumped in to say that capitalism was everything wrong with the country and that things need to change. I pointed out that being a business owner makes her a capitalist. She then said that politics should not be discussed in a bar and ended the discussion.
I think you summed up extremely well what I was thinking. It is not so much the idealogy is changing on the far left but rather they are increasingly emboldened to come out of the closet and use the C word which used to be taboo.
10 yrs ago I debated a key at work which wasn’t afraid to use the C word. These people have been out there and will now try to recruit others.
They sent the depraved, easily agitated risk-takers directly to the front lines because perchance the Sodomites were metaphorically laid waste— eh whatever, they were an expendable bunch of freaks anyway.
Politics should not be discussed in a bar???!!! What the h... kind of bar is that?
I think there is a small percentage of Americans who are easily persuaded in just about anything.
I’ll bet some people sign stuff, every time they go shopping.
As long as they remain a small percentage, we should be ok.
I have a very close friend of mine who's always voted for Dems and who recently announced that he was a socialist. He actually knows next to nothing about socialist theory and would be hard-pressed to name three (in)famous past commies. Maybe he could name Castro. I told him there's nothing I'd like more than to make him live under a real socialist government .Of course, we're heading in that direction, so he might get his wish.
Being a communist is like being a mixed martial arts fighter. Lots of people say they are one, but you don’t see the telltale signs. I had a professor in college who claimed to be a communist. He liked to stroke his beard and wax eloquent on the Dictatorship of the Proleteriat. He also liked to drive his expensive sports car and screw the young girls in his classes. It’s cool to talk about being a communist. I don’t think the old prof was made of the stern stuff to cut throats. And it always comes to cutting throats. There are damn few throat cutters in this country. There are a lot of bullshitters. There are also lots of people who will say anything if they think it will help them get some money.
Then take it down to the bar, gather some signatures, and have some fun.
Um, is this where Marxism was born, from guys getting blotto in the NASTIEST dive in Europe?
The guy with the clipboard was doing it as a joke just to see how many people would actually sign it. He used words like "Nazi", "Orwellian police state", etc over and over to describe what his petition was for. With liberals becoming more communist, and low info voters becoming more clueless, it's getting scary out there.
I pointed out that being a business owner makes her a capitalist. She then said that politics should not be discussed in a bar and ended the discussion. I
That’s what “progressives” do when they lose the argument.
Oops, sorry, I didn’t see you had already posted that link. It was pretty timely to this article!
Heh, heh...actually the early commies used to hang out in coffee houses, private homes, and yes, probably bars to do their plotting. I’ve read a number of books about Lenin, and he and his gang met in a number of places. It’s amusing though to picture Lenin and the rest of criminals hashing out communism over vodka in some Russian dive. The consequences, of course, were not so amusing.
Only for the last 30 years.
I keep used copies of The Gulag Archipelago and One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich for just such occasions. Hand them out to the people who say things like that. The First Circle will work, too. As will Arthur Koestler’s Darkness at Noon. Say, “Read this and then we’ll talk.”
Yeah, it’s happening.
Excellent analysis. Quite brilliant.
With the demoratic party filling up quickly now with socialists you can hardly ‘not’ be one and call yourself a democrate.
However what we have running the country are radical liberals....and they do not abide by rules and laws unless it’s to their favor....
We stand awestruck as Obama rolls right over the Constitution and as much the legal perimeters of his position....but to radicals there are none...they are in control and they make the rules as they go....
End note....nobody stops them because those trying are still playing by the rules....and they can’t until they realize these “evil’ ones care less about rules... anything goes to reach and attain their goal.
Cognitive dissonance is the essence of liberalism.
Oh yeah, severely so. They’re brazen now. Most of those whom I know on welfare or gov’t dependent are very supportive of Obama, anti-capitalist, and very much class-warfare.
You should have said “You’re right. I don’t have any money so I hope you’ll charge other patrons more for drinks so you can give me mine for free.”
See what we’re up against? Business owners who believe in communism. I’ve said it over and over these people will pay exorbitant insurance premiums just to make Obama look good.
Isn’t Obama Care a form of Communism.
Only on TV, the internet, schools, and Goverment.
When and if this ever ends, we should build a monument on the nations mall to Senator Joseph McCarthy. Larger than the Lincoln memorial and directly facing the Capitol. The man was a prophet of biblical proportions.
