Yeah, sure they have learned their lesson

Most collectivists will twist themselves in a pretzel to avoid admitting the evils of communism knowing full well how despicable the murderous communist movements of the 20th century were. They have no such problem with fascism, which despite their attempts to relable as a right wing movement, is clearly another unholy version of the collectivist big state system. But when the topic is communism, these idiots simply cannot admit the thing was not just a miserable failure, but downright evil. Oh, they will tell you that they know it was bad, but there will always be a “but” to justify doing more of the same. Some will say that the problem was that it wasn’t real communism or some such nonsense. Others will say that it wasn’t done by the right people. But every once in a while, you will have some that let their guard down and tell you that they just really love that totalitarian evil shit, like that idiot Jesse Myerson did over at Salon.com with that communist cock fluffing job titled Why you’re wrong about communism: 7 huge misconceptions about it (and capitalism). Let me stress that about the only thing people can get wrong about communism is how dehumanizing, evil, and downright despicable it is, and this author takes the prize for that.

In typical idiotic liberal fashion, this moronic piece basically tries, and fails miserably, to justify the murder of over 100 million people and the imprisonment of billions, and all in less than a century, by making the absolutely ludicrous and stupendously ridiculous claim that communism’s reign of intimidation, abuse and murder, a philosophy based on robbing humans of dignity while pretending to do the inverse, should be overlooked because the other side does it too! Even worse to me is the fact that the moron that wrote this piece is trying to argue that the violence and abuses of communism are OK, because the crony capitalism system that the left thrives off and is hell bent on growing, in the very name of the social justice they pretend can only flourish under such evil and tyrannical systems as communism, is bad. It shows a fundamentally flawed conception of the reality of how things work. The answer to the honest criticism of a collectivist system that murdered 100 million people and imprisoned billions is to contrast it with another collectivist system, run by other assholes, that under the pretense of trying to address the ills of society and usher in “social justice”, have created a dysfunctional society where government, through coercion or outright force, picks the winners and loser, and then pretend there is an equivalence that should give communism a pass. That makes so much sense!

The most ludicrous part of the article however is the “the right people were not in charge” argument that the author makes when he tries to pretend that an American communist system wouldn’t be like that in the Soviet Union or China. Maybe he has missed the massive abuses by the current administration, which for all intents and purposes can be labeled the most dogmatically communist friendly one in the history of this nation. Does he really believe that people like this, when given absolute power, wouldn’t do the same, if not worse? What? He figures that scumbags like Obama and Holder, when given absolute power like the leadership of a communist system would inherently get, suddenly would stop abusing said power (which they have been doing nonstop for the last 5 years). And I still believe in Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse too.

But the telling point is that made in the 7th misconception, where he, yet again, tries to pretend that the crony capitalist system set up by his communism loving fellow travelers is inherently unfair, because it doesn’t really foster individualism. This whole piece of garbage of an article smacks of another rewrite. The left was able to pretend communism was less evil during the time they had everyone convinced fascism, another collectivist disease, was a right wing creation. Now that we finally cleared up that misconception and pointed out fascism was just the other side of the collectivist coin, they lost that shield to hide behind, and they then, in desperation, have started grasping at straws. It looks like the new tactic is to help give communism some semblance of legitimacy, by making a comparison between communism and the despicable crony capitalist system that the communism loving shitbags that think government should be in the business of picking winners & losers, have straddled us with.

This desperate attempt to provide cover for communism smacks of the tactics currently used by these very same people that are trying to force us in the US to accept the government run system they want by destroying the existing healthcare system and claiming that justifies their intent. Supporters of communism have corrupted our society and economic system by giving government the power to pick the winners and losers, then point out the deficiencies of that system they created to justify the most murderous and evil curse ever foisted on humanity: communism. Apologists for communism are fucking vile, and we should treat them as such. The left still is enamored of this plague that struck humanity over the last century, and if we do not remain vigilant and roll back their work, we will soon find ourselves living under it or variants of it before we know it. Collectivism beyond the family circle can only produce tyrannical and abused systems. That’s the fact we must keep in mind.

    Over at Fark it found a ready audience of willing stooges to talk it up. Considering your average farker has the brains of walnut and lives in mom’s basement, I’m not surprised.

    Home sick so I started the piece. After the first two misconceptions, I just skipped and read the headlines.

    Does anyone claim that “Only communist economies rely on state violence”? Every government relies on state violence to one degree or another.

    How about “Communism killed 110 million* people for resisting dispossession” and he focuses on the “for resisting oppression.” (Apparently someone I have never heard of said this). No one who knows anything about communist regimes would agree with this. Sure, lots of people resisting communism were killed, but the greater horror is that million were killed because they were there. Pol Pot killed people who had a diploma or because they could read. Notice he doesn’t actually try to refute that millions died. He also tries to conflate World War Two military deaths with those who were murdered by the state (of course, Soviet tactics were sometimes essentially murder).

    “Capitalist governments don’t commit human rights atrocities.” Anyone claims this? Ever?

    OK gotta hack up a lung. Someone else can tackle the rest . . .

    I saw a link there from somewhere else yesterday and LOL’d at the article but the comments are just depressing. Yet again there are plenty of idiots out there that think communism hasn’t ever really been done right… the examples are all failed attempts that never did “real” communism. They all think that if we just give it another go, we’ll do it right this time.

    It’s amazing how they either don’t see, or actually don’t really care that we would have to give up all our liberties (what little we have left at this point) and that it just doesn’t work without force and silencing any dissent.

    The straw men they use to try to proove how capitalism or libertarianism are at least as bad, if not worse, are just sad too.

    This this this. Not only that, murder and starvation were used as tools of oppression. In the Soviet Union, you had this thing called the Holobador, where 10 million Ukrainians were deliberately starved to death to “pacify” the country.

    The single biggest misconception about communism is that it does not entail gulags, death squads and thought control. These things, however, were part of Lenin and Mao’s philosophies. They believed in controlling the populace through deception and terror, that this was the only way to establish communism. Anyone who denies that is a fool.

    hah.. this comment pretty much sums it up pretty well too:

    Let me see if I got this right.

    Somehow the 110 Million* killed in China/Russia is a ‘questionable’ number.

    But the 100 Million PROJECTD to die because of ‘global warming’ is a fact we should all accept.

    Something like that???

    Keep that in mind whenever you hear one of these elite marxists speak about how they wished our country could be more like one of the communist nations, because then they could get shit done. Oh, when cornered they will do a mad dance to avoid telling the truth, but they actually really like this genocidal megalomaniacal shit that is part & parcel of all collectivist systems. Political Correctness is just the less blood thirsty version of the old commie reeducation style. Instead of sending you to a gulag to suffer and causing themselves all sorts of problems for showing their true colors and beliefs, today’s collectivist will try to force conformity of thought through speech codes, hate laws, and such other nonsense that’s primarily targeted at the behavior they don’t like, often only from people they don’t like was well.

    To me, today’s western states show way too much commonality with a softer hybrid versions of the old communist/fascist states, for comfort, and I see things always heading in the wrong direction. Instead of the cold and cruel brutality of old regimes, our new master class has, very successfully I add, resorted to all sorts of soft coercion and enforced purity of thought. Government still gets to pick who wins and who loses, holding back those they dislike, even punishing them for not wanting to go along with what our masters in government want. The crony capitalist system that allows then to do favor the ones they like over all others is then painted as just as bad, if not worse than the full blown tyrannical system they really pine for. If only the people in control and responsible for the cesspool we find ourselves in only had more control and power, and they would do away with all this crap they caused and created! And the idiots lap this shit up and ask for seconds. There are so many rules and regulations that each and every one of us commits numerous crimes daily. That’s by design too, as it gives the government agents an easy way to target those deemed as problematic by the state, whenever they decide that they want to teach that someone, or others in general, a lesson.

    Collectivism in any form other than the family unit, where that familial bond should overcome some of the nastier traits of human nature, is a recipe for disaster. But the marxists still want to pretend that this shit can work if only we try it, with the right people, and then, when stuff goes wrong, it will be our own fault for not doing what they tell us.

    Fuck the lot of them. We need to cut government. By at least 2/3 of it’s size, and criminalize the crony capitalism practices that allow psuedo-marxists and their allies to fuck us all over.
