Skip to comments.Joe Garcia Praises Communism, Gets Basic Facts Wrong ( Florida )
Posted on 05/22/2014 12:24:06 PM PDT by george76
U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia (D-FL) misstated basic facts while praising communism in an online video conference this week. Garcia, who represents southernmost Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives, told video conference participants, Weve proved that communism works. If you give everybody a good government job, theres no crime.
Garcia made his comments while discussing immigration, border security agents, and crime rates in El Paso, Texas.
Let me give you an example, the kind of money weve poured in, said Garcia. So the most dangerous sorry, the safest city in America is El Paso, Texas. It happens to be across the border from the most dangerous city in the Americas, which is Juarez. Right?
And two of the safest cities in America, two of them are on the border with Mexico, Garcia continued. And of course, the reason is weve proved that communism works. If you give everybody a good government job, theres no crime.
Garcias love for communism aside, he is demonstrably wrong on his basic facts.

Let’s put Joe Garcia on the island in “Lost” and bring back Jorge Garcia (the fat guy).
I had no idea consuming earwax could have such a drastic impact on ones IQ.
I doubt it is the result of ignorance. Like most Democrats he lies about basic facts not caring if they are right or not. By the time we refute his lies he is moving on the next lie.
No matter. If he loses his job, his replacement will be of the same like mind.
“If you give everybody a good government job, theres no crime.”
1. He apparently is not a financial wizard.
2. Does he even know where El Paso is?
Well leftists are skipping Socialism now & going full Communist.
Yeah, Joe, communism really worked well for the 100 million of its own citizens murdered by communist regimes.
In fact, it worked so well they had to build walls to keep their people in, and shot them when they tried to escape from “paradise.”
It worked so well, that with the exception of the mentally unbalanced, communist countries were places to be from, not places to go to.
It worked so well that virtually every communist and former communist country is an ecological cesspool of chemical and/or radioactive pollution.
Come to think of it Joe...
why have you not moved to Cuba, your “worker’s paradise?”
All these mutts that think El Paso is so safe need to walk around the lower areas in his nice Congressthief clothes without any protection and see what happens.
Communism works to lower the population—Millions have died under the red flag. It saps the life out of a people and makes them slaves to the state.
I don’t why he doesn’t just emigrate to Cuba. Apparently, it’s a communist paradise over there.
In real communism, the government forces you to work for whatever they’re willing to pay, which is typically only enough to keep you alive and working.
That wasn’t ear wax.
it was the last few bits of brain matter that leaked out.
i see Joe is in Florida and has not read the news like 0 and Aiken!
Who will pay for those jobs? Other than creating money out of thin air,the government has to have producers who actually earn an income that they can steal money from.
When did everyone ever have a good government job under communism?
So this country is now Communist! Long suspected; now affirmed.
And where is the outrage at this earwax-eating, stupid-beyond-words, traitor?
Spanish word that describes him perfectly: comemieda.
Translation: sh!t eater
He is a first term congresscritter. Maybe his distric (Miami-Dade) has learned its lesson?
If communisms works then I guess a lot Floridians can go back to Cuba, maybe even a reverse flotilla
According to Joe Garcia Communism is working very well in Obamaland, especially in those states and cities where democ-rats are en control of all the power as in California and Chicago. He should go back to Cuba with his parents to enjoy life in the Communist paradise on earth.

The Last Communist City
A visit to the dystopian Havana that tourists never see
By MICHAEL J. TOTTEN
Ive always wanted to visit Cubanot because Im nostalgic for a botched utopian fantasy but because I wanted to experience Communism firsthand. When I finally got my chance several months ago, I was startled to discover how much the Cuban reality lines up with Blomkamps dystopia.
In Cuba, as in Elysium, a small group of economic and political elites live in a rarefied world high above the impoverished masses. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of The Communist Manifesto, would be appalled by the misery endured by Cubas ordinary citizens and shocked by the relatively luxurious lifestyles of those who keep the poor down by force.
Many tourists return home convinced that the Cuban model succeeds where the Soviet model failed. But thats because they never left Cubas Elysium.
I had to lie to get into the country. Customs and immigration officials at Havanas tiny, dreary José Martí International Airport would have evicted me had they known I was a journalist. But not even a total-surveillance police state can keep track of everything and everyone all the time, so I slipped through. It felt like a victory.
Havana, the capital, is clean and safe, but theres nothing to buy. It feels less natural and organic than any city Ive ever visited. Initially, I found Havana pleasant, partly because I wasnt supposed to be there and partly because I felt as though I had journeyed backward in time. But the city wasnt pleasant for long, and it certainly isnt pleasant for the people living there. It hasnt been so for decades.

Matter of fact, we'll trade a Cuban prisoner in a 4 for one swap. You, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Dan Mallory (governor of CT) for one Cuban prisoner. We will also throw in two liberals to be named later and Jessie Jackson.
The Cuban baseball players...oopd, they defected to play MAJOR LEAGUE baseball.
I am sure more than a few of Joe’s constituents fled Castro’s Communist Workers Paradise and could give him their first hand experience with the “success” of communism.
Stalinists lie. ALWAYS
If everybody has a good government job, no one will get paid.
This mensa type should go spend a week in Juarez to see what real socialism is like. Then come back to El Paso to see what remnants of freedom is like.
Garcia has had an awful two weeks due to his own blunders. A video taken during a committee hearing showing Garcia digging in his ear and then eating his own earwax took off with millions of viewers taking it in. The South Florida Democrat didnt help himself by insisting he was actually going after a fingernail.
Then on Tuesday night, Garcia handed the Republicans a golden opportunity in a meandering, often incoherent ramble during a Google Hangout in which he said communism works and brought up the idea of giving out government jobs to keep crime low before shooting it down.
