Totalitarian leftist state: Lapses back into an opium dream of Marxists sitting around a kitchen table and debating whom to shoot first.
Its inconceivable that the New York Times or any paper would run a glowing piece titled, When Nazis Inspired Americans. No fond recollections from participants in the Madison Square Garden rally. No fond memories of Bund camps. No sugar-coated recollections of how the Thousand Year Reich would create a better world only to then learn that Hitler wasnt a very nice man.
But the New York Times will run When Communism Inspired Americans. It will run it because while Communism didnt inspire Americans, it did inspire the left to try and turn America into a totalitarian state. It still does. This is the dirty little secret that leaks out of the left.
Socialism, which is what the hate group, known as the Democratic Party, supports, ALWAYS devolves into communism/totalitarianism/fascism or whatever disaster you choose to call it.
It did NOT inspire Americans.
It inspired a few freaks and traitors in places like NY City, that’s all.
The Bolsheviks called themselves Social Democrats. Communism always starts with the idea of equality, workers’ rights, and the benefit of a loving, all-powerful state to replace evil capitalism. Look at how Democrats refer to capitalism today. They’re filled with the same hate for it and want it destroyed (same as Hitler, btw), but as always they’ve nothing to replace it with other than communism.
I don’t see any significant difference between national socialism and soviet socialism. There are minor variations in packaging, but both are socialist systems where the government has nearly absolute power. The flaws of both systems come from totalitarianism, not from the superficial details. They both even targeted the Jews and wiped out very large numbers of their own people (as did Mao’s socialist utopia, and others). Somehow, progressive-communist-socialist-leftist-democrat journalists either cannot see the truth or are so lost in #FakeNews that they refuse to report the obvious.
And all these May Day marches across the country.
Bet none of the participants realize the significance vis a’vis communism.
And a lot of them would smile if they knew.
Stalin, Pol Pot, Chavez, Mao...Great humanitarians all.
socialism has two primary appeals....
1. it can be dressed up to sound good (”helping people”)
2. in times of great economic hardship (like the Great Depression or Obama’s Great Recession) people can look for whatever help they can find
of course, socialism also destroys the economy and jobs, so that it creates its own demand (item 2 above)

...the usual suspects:
The Times has never rejected the Pulitzer Prize granted to its reporter, Walter Duranty, who in the 30s reported on the glories of the Soviet communist system and denied in the articles that he wrote that there was a famine in Ukraine (Stalin’s henchman deliberately starved eight million peasant families to death in Ukraine while Stalin exported Ukrainian grain). I remember being in Red Sqaure shortly after the fall of communism; you can see why Ethel Rosenberg’s brother, David Greenglass, when asked if he would be traded to Russia in return for an American spy and get out of prison early, replied why would I go there?? Its a dump.
Hey, sure, why not! We KNOW for DAMN SURE that the so called scumbag republican party is down for communism! My God people, we have been so very badly used and abused by these republican scum for so long. It is WAY past time to flush every last republican down the toilet of history. WAY past time.
The bad thing about Capitalism is capitalists — the bad thing about Socialism is Socialism.
The bad parts of capitalism can be remedied through regulation. Socialism cannot because it already represents too much regulation.
Wow. The NY Times finally admits the Nazis were Leftists.
Yeah, my birthday.
That wasn't inspiration I felt when I returned from the Vietnam War and realized I had been killing the wrong Communists.
