That’s pretty much how Socialism was and Democratic Socialism is. The later is just the former with the energy, acrobatics, and attention seeking so prevalent among Millennials. In the end, the results are exactly the same and exactly as bad.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the darling of the Millennial Snowflakes, Crybullies, SJWs, and all the Socialist grifters is guiding the Democrats further and further to the Left. The way things are going, she and those like her are going to guide the Dems right of the cliff of either irrelevancy, civil war, or some combination of both.
🙄 So, yet another Dem has thrown their hat into the ring and plans on competing for that party’s Presidential Nomination. This time it’s Biden, defying both his personal issues and his race, gender, and age.
It is to yawn; to sit back steeped in ennui as yet another of them begin the process of trying to manufacture some semblance of difference between themselves and every other Dem candidate. And yet, at the end of the day, all that is different between them are their faces and how they shade their rhetoric to most appeal to their chosen market segment of likely Dem voters.
I would hazard the guess that most people, at least most people older than the Millennials, in the Civilized World are at least passingly familiar with Aesop’s fable of the The Ants & the Grasshopper. But I’m also willing to hazard the guess that, with the Progress our civilization has endured, certain all to populous elements would reject that fable in favor of one more suited to modern Liberalism.
The Ants & the Grasshopper Today
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so unfairly?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green …’
Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the Black Lives Matter group singing, We shall overcome.
Then Reverend Al Sharpton has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.
A Twitter firestorm erupts with Millenials declaring that #IstandWithGrasshopper. This results in Twitter mass banning pro-ant users.
On college campuses across the nation students riot, demanding ant-free safe spaces.
Former President Obama condemns the ant and blames Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
The ant is fined for failing to hire an proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize what’s left of the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
Sadly, the above rewrite of Aesop’s teaching tale perfectly fits with the ideology of the Left and their minorities. It hammers home the moral that they so stridently proclaim – that the productive majority must always surrender their property to the shiftless eaters.
What makes it worse for we ants aka productive, responsible American citizens is that the grasshoppers we have to deal with are the species that left unchecked turn into locusts.

According to Elizabeth Warren, Dems’ message must be more than “not Trump” if they want to retake the halls of political power in America and reshape and remake the country into what they want it to be.
“If your message is ‘not-Trump,’ it’s not going to work,” the Democratic presidential hopeful told about 500 supporters who packed a rally at a high school gymnasium in Reno. “Our job it to talk about our vision.”
And, to some extent – certainly more than 1/1024th so – she’s right. The majority of the sorts who are likely Democrat voters won’t settle for just “Not Trump.” They demand that their chosen ones be that and firmly and stridently against any and all of the Makers in America. In their minds it’s unfair that the productive are more successful than the Eaters and Takers.
But then, that’s the intrinsic nature of the shiftless failures that gravitate to Socialism and Neo-Socialist economic policies. They firmly believe that they deserve more than what they’ve earned and that the difference must be given to them by taking from those who’ve done better for themselves and their progeny.
