Why Socialism? Blame Race!

Why Socialism? Blame Race!

If you’ve ever wondered why so many of the entitled, mis-raised Millennial Snowflakes have turned to Socialism, you might want to blame race or, rather, the Left’s rendition of racial politics. While perhaps counterintuitive, the SJWs’ ideas of “race relations” seems like a good bet for being a large part of why this has happened.

Understand two things: people in general are fairly self-centered and self-serving, with the Millennials being more than a bit more so; and the Left’s whole agenda when it comes to non-Whites is giving them Whites’ money. This simply means that these Millennials have been drawn to the only political-economic system that promises to give them money and give the non-Whites money.

It’s really just a way for them to get a piece of the pie that their side wants to give to others while not triggering an attack from the SJWs.

Bernie’s Self-Immolation

It’s more than a bit funny that the mad socialist, Bernie Sanders is, himself, feeling the “Bern.” Then, Socialism is great fuel and hypocrisy and equally good accelerant. Bernie’s self-immolation was almost guaranteed. 😉

Bernie's Self-Immolation
Bernie’s Self-Immolation

What’s happened is that Bernie’s campaign staff – which unionized – is in extended arguments with their “management” over the pay and benefits that his campaign’s field staffers get. The staffers have complained that their salaries of $36,000 annually ends up being less than $15.00 / hour when the numbers of hours a week they work on average are factored in.

A letter that the campaign’s union planned to send to Sanders’ campaign manager Faiz Shakir which read in part that workers “cannot be expected to build the largest grassroots organizing program in American history while making poverty wages. Given our campaign’s commitment to fighting for a living wage of at least $15.00 an hour, we believe it is only fair that the campaign would carry through this commitment to its own field team.”

The letter states that field organizers are working at least 60 hours a week, which lowers the average per hour pay to $13 an hour.

“Many field staffers are barely managing to survive financially, which is severely impacting our team’s productivity and morale. Some field organizers have already left the campaign as a result,” the letter said.

Even a proposal from the campaign director, Faiz Shakir that recommended raising their salaries to $42,000 per annum was rejected, largely because the proposal didn’t also include Bernie paying for 100% of the staffers’ healthcare costs.

Yep. Ol’ Bernie really should have known that, if he’s going to run on forcing higher wages for low-end personnel and free healthcare for all, he was going to have to fut the bill for them same for the partisans actually working for him.

Oh! And just to add more fuel to his own pyre, Bernie’s response to this rebellion as of July 19, 2019 was to reduce staff hours to ensure everyone makes $15 an hour.

And Another Hat Is Thrown

Another Hat Is Thrown
And Another Hat Is Thrown Into The Dems’ Primary Ring

🙄 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.

A Grasshopper Today

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.

More Than Not Trump

More Than Not Trump
Warren Claims Dems Must Be More Than Not Trump

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.
