Yes, comrades, it just isn't fair how Fox News covers socialism.
Would you believe one Fox News talking head actually called socialism "toxic." Yes, toxic. How dare Fox allow such negative propaganda?
Trust CNN guest Bhaskar Sunkara, founder of America's socialist magazine of boy howdy wow ever growing popularity, "Jacobin," who said "Socialism is actually about freedom."
Yes! Yes! Yes!
SOCIALISM IS ACTUALLY ABOUT FREEDOM!

    The liberal media is as pathetically unprepared for American rejection of socialism as they were for Trump's election. The problem is that most of their people were brought up in a public school system that taught them what to think instead of how to think. A fairly unified public stand against socialism runs counter to their belief that America is a greatly divided country, on lines of race, religion, and economic standing, which is the line of crap they've been selling.

    Socialism is the "The Twentieth Century Motorcar Company. From there, freedoms are eroded way until there is a totalitarian state. in "Atlas Shrugged". CNN and others refuse to do their homework on what Socialism is. Socialism hides behind the mask of a Utopian Society. The government takes care of every part of one's life, individuality is squashed, slow innovation or none at all. You end up with stagnant society. But, crime will still be there, taking advantage of the "sheeple". No 2nd amendment or 4th amendment and so on. CNN is becoming so irrelevant to the point of extinction.

      "...slow innovation or none at all." Indeed. I suspect if the US had gone pure socialist after the Civil War we'd still be living in the 19th century. I could see Edison being thrown out of the "Ministry of Invention" because his electric light idea would conflict too much with the Oil Lamp and Candlestick Unions. There would have been no 20th Century Motorcar Company because it would have ended the Horse Sh*t Shoveler's Union.

      When me dino found this reply in my stack of unopened emails, all I could read was "Owlsrayne: "Socialism is the Twentieth Century,,,""
      Just as I started to click on it to read the rest of what you wrote, I finished that sentence with one word and that one word was "...failure."
      Despite what I came up with, I liked what you wrote and gave you a point.

    ""President Trump and his pro-Trump media allies want you to believe all Democrats are socialists and they want you to believe socialism is destroying or even the possibility is destroying America," he hyped"

    There is no need to hype about it.

    Every thinking person knows what socialism/communism is.

    " the left's embrace of socialism was all about “freedom” and saving America from “dangerous far-right populism.”


    LOL...Freedom? The left has not demonstrated even the slightest understanding of what the term entails.

    They talk about freedom when their intolerance and resistance to anything sane and normal that characterize thinking individuals have been subverted and suppressed by the most terroristic methods?

    Talk about freedom when those who don't comply to their madness are vilified and harassed?

    I always wonder what are these people like this Sunkara doing in the US? He would be much happier in Cuba...wait a minute. No, they don't want to be subjected to the nirvana socialism offers. It is much more lucrative to be a parasite in the US, spew his vile and be treated like a hero by the sheeple. In Cuba he would be harvesting sugarcane.

      Yeah, it's very hot in Cuba harvesting sugarcane with nothing but a machete. Here a lib is free to mind his or her or its PC p's and q's while marching lockstep with a Jackass Party now led by a squad of very nasty children.

      Very rational. Sounds like something that these days might attract hurled “milkshakes.”

        Ah, yes! Courageous heroes of the Left who wear masks and attack and overwhelm isolated helpless targets while protected by the strength and safety of a vicious mob.
        Not to mention assistance provided by lib mayors who tell their cops to stand down.

          One difference between an-tifas and fas it that the fas did not wear masks when pounding their victims.

            Vaguely remember some white supremacists peacefully demonstrating some place shortly after Trump was elected. They were attacked by Antifa. All the Fake News media wanted to talk about how bad the white supremacists were for fighting back.
            No, folks me dino ain't no white supremacist (or what a lib would be asking me about now).
            Don't worry, libs, all the races shall suffer equally under the wondrous wonders of socialism.
            Uh, new thought. Looks like Jews may get it a lot worse, though.

              I believe you are referring to the Confederate statue removal in Charlottesville. Many of those protesting the removal had nothing to do with white supremacy or racism at all, but thought it wrong to erase the nations history, which the Neo Communists are succeeding at a little at a time.

                Well, me old dino has already admitted to my memory being vague.
                What is not vague is how quickly libs would brand protests over the destruction of national history as being racially motivated.

              w.r.t. that new thought: Very much like the evolution of fascism in Germany pre-WWII.

                Me dino thought Jews were a welcomed branch of America's Left (lefty Barbara Streisland a Jew along with other Hollywood ilk) until during the Occupy Movement when I saw on TV lots of "occupiers" carrying anti-Jewish signs. I was all like "What?!?!"
                Later I had become better educated about how the Left really felt about Jews by the time I also on TV saw Nutty Nancy turn her back on Netanyahu as he gave a speech before Congress.
                Now the Left has given us the gift of so-called Antifa who like fascist Nazis me dino thinks would crack a Jew's skull in a heartbeat.

      Your haughty words inspire Comrade Me Dino to write the following~~
      Our Armed Forces should be taught to march in the goose step fashion adopted by great dictatorships the world over to display the frightfulness of government might over its disarmed populations who may otherwise become a little too uppity with their mouths.
      Remember, there is no government like good government. Just as there is no think like PC sanctioned group think. Power to the people!

    I agree with CNN. Fox is too busy trying to be "fair and balanced" that it gives socialism way too much of a pass. Its a TERRIBLE system with a horrible track record EVERYWHERE its been tried. There is nothing good about socialism.

    "Freedom to allow the government to make your choices for you."

    How the hell can someone say that with any conviction without having his tongue snap out of his mouth and run down the hall on fire?

    That is a concept that would have done George Orwell and the concept of "doublethink" proud.

      Comrade Suzanne, we the American people are FREE to chose socialism with our votes.
      Then it is all done. We have proudly chosen to put on the yoke of full government control and there is nothing left to do. Ever.

        I'm afraid that you are right, Comrade Dino. But there is The Gulch to go to until they shut it down.

          Yes, it takes a free people to freely hand their freedom over to an elected body of elite betters with a promise to redistribute loads of donated free stuff.
          As for The Gulch, do not let your heart be troubled for being shut down. Look forward to being required to listen to Big Brother speeches followed by tests on what you've learned. Both educational and fun!

    I'm so glad to see your Post about this subject. Just last night Professor Charles Kessler was discussing this with Levin on Fox. Now, The Democrat congressional people (the Squad) are trying to evolve into a new country. Establishment of antithesist of freedom. It seems they think we have no right to think differently from them. In the 1960's the Liberal revolution was trying to create a perfect Socialist society which called for the surrender of free will. Progressivism(?) is the real problem. If you disagree with their ideals, they will brand you as a racist? Is this clear to anyone? Not me!

      You’re collectively “free”, if you obediently follow the crooked path where the sharp whips do not fall upon.

      You will still pay retribution for being born.

    We should treat socialism as fairly as we treat fascism based on historical results of such as prosperity, economics, long term sustainability and of course needless deaths.

      Yes, that is exactly how socialism should be treated.
      Nevertheless, it is obvious that many members of our human race suffers from a mental health problem.
      Me dino has oft read it said that proof of insanity is trying the same thing over and over with the same negative result while still expecting an opposite outcome.

    Why does each generation of socialist ideologues think they can do better than the failed attempts of the past? They use the same rhetoric as their predecessors to promote this ideology but won't say how they will do it better because they can't.
