goalie29763: It’s unfortunate that Americans who are considered insufficiently socialistic/communistic are constantly being accused of being Nazis.
Maybe it’s time to remind all those yelling “Nazi” that more than one million Americans died or were wounded fighting the Nazis and the Japanese in World War II while those screaming “Nazi” have probably never faced anything more threatening than a hangnail.
They might also want to remember that Germany under Hitler was a “National Socialist” country, although that fact seems to have slipped down the memory hole.
Communism and socialism are not the same, of course.
Usually you get socialism first in its nice, fluffy, cotton candy version where everyone is told they will be taken care of and we are all going to be one big happy family. Then reality hits as the productive people stop working and mediocrity becomes the norm. As problems mount, the government has to impose ever more rules and regulations to control the downward spiral and you get full-blown communism.
Those people with any gumption try to escape, as we’ve seen previously in Cuba, Venezuela, East Germany, the Soviet Union, Communist China and North Korea. Those left behind only intensify the downward trend.
In time, society breaks down as socialism and communism are based on a false understanding of human nature. In turn, starvation, riots and civil disorder follow with the eventual rise of a dictator. Of course, none of this is covered by the liberal media because it has to maintain the fiction of a coming paradise under socialism/communism.
The media’s silence is echoed in Hollywood where in the last 70 years or so it has cranked out hundreds of films about the Nazis and World War II without getting into why Hitler rose to power or about the killing fields of communism. According to the simple-minded liberals in Hollywood, communism was a good idea. It just needed some tweaking to make it work.
So perhaps it’s time to rectify that oversight, first of all by noting that the Communists racked up a higher body count than Hitler ever imagined.
According to R.J. Rummel, a professor emeritus of political science, almost 62 million people were systematically killed by the Communist regime in the Soviet Union from 1917 to 1987. The Chinese Communists are estimated to have murdered 77 million. (Some actually put the number higher.) The Khmer Rouge killed 2 million, or one-fourth of the population of Cambodia; and an estimated 1.7 million were murdered in North Korea.
In sum, Communists probably murdered more than 142 million people from 1900 to 1987. In comparison, the Nazis murdered around 21 million.
Yet neither the media nor Hollywood has seen fit to cover it. Murder wasn’t always the worst of it, of course. If you want to know the depths to which socialism/communism descended, just read “The Black Book of Communism.”
The soft peddling of socialism/communism is prevalent in the schools and universities in this country where ivory tower professors spout nonsense about those systems — systems that would never have allowed them the freedom of thought they enjoy in this country and instead would have resulted in their being sent to a concentration camp or shot if they deviated from the party line.
Lenin had a word for such people: useful idiots.
Nor does the media nor Hollywood discuss the pernicious effects that socialism and communism have on human behavior as the productive are forced to support the unproductive; the hard-working have to make up for the lazy; the smart have to fix the mistakes of the dumb; and the functional having to make up for the dysfunctional. Since the entire system is geared toward punishing people for being productive, hard-working, smart and functional, those qualities soon disappear, turning the population into domestic animals easy to control.
Socialism/communism also seems to tap into major flaws in human nature, namely envy and jealousy. Those weaknesses, in turn, are exploited by those who promise anything in return for political power.
Politicians of all stripes are more than willing to play that role, especially in the Democratic Party.
People like Gov. Jerry Brown, former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and wannabes like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
People who’ve never had a real job, owned a business or done anything of note other than run for office. Yet they all feel entitled to live off of others and to not feel ashamed about it.
Recently Gov. Brown engaged in separate negotiations with the Chinese Communists over “climate change” although he has no constitutional right to do so. Perhaps Brown, who is frustrated at never having been elected president, simply wants to be king of California.
Then there is Bernie Sanders, a career politician who spouts socialism while living high on the hog at our expense. According to the latest U.S. Senate financial disclosure report, Sanders received a $795,000 advance for his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” He got another $63,750 for his forthcoming “Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political Revolution.”
One has to wonder if the publishers will really make back what they advanced Sanders or if those books will quickly find themselves on the remainder table, with the cost written off as a “political investment.”
In addition to these royalties, Sanders earns $174,000 a year as a senator making his take-home income in 2016 over $1 million. So it’s little wonder that he and his wife were recently able to buy a $600,000 summer home on Vermont’s Lake Champlain Islands. The couple also own homes in Burlington, Vermont and Washington, D.C.
Not bad for a “socialist” and a working class hero of people who talk a good talk while stuffing themselves with candied hummingbird wings.
And they call us “deplorable.”

vinfaux51: Goalie I end with this .I spoke of false teaching .For you to type out all the bible quotes,by word is great for it is the word of the Almighty and right to do so.But even with the declaration of your faith ,You as Gods child must side with Israel for God shall not alter the very words gone out from His own lips ,You know Gods word,For you to say don't stand with Israel is false teaching and goes against Gods very own word.Gods house is not divided my brother,The whole world knows where God loyalties stand and they are for Israel not against her,For God will always stand by Israel .And no amount of prayer will change this .The word of God you speak is refreshing for me ,most saints don't even know where to find what they just read without extensive searches lol.Gods word is fine .Its your own two since worth is why I chimed in at all for it is contradictory to Gods word.If all that I typed brother offends you then we are simply like Apostle Paul and Barnabas ,parted ways then so must we .For you see Gods Israel one way and I see her as belonging totally to God for this is Gods view I see in his very word .
vinfaux51: From all I saw on facebook Israel is justified in responding as she is .Israel's leader said several months ago to those that daily launch missiles into Israel and shed the blood of innocents ,He used Gods own Torah prophetic words I will utterly destroy all that attach Israel.My friend that caught our Fathers ear,and God listened ,God is now watching over her like a hawk after his prey,But the Lords intent is to destroy Israel's foes .And that my friend could even be the US now.For as God spoke these words through Jesus Christ I bless them that bless mine ,and I curse those that curse her .For I the Lord will deal out a double portion of judgement .So I say again Stand with Israel for to stand against her is to stand against God .
