Fuck all of you marxists!

Today is May Day, a day where the vilest scourge to visit its ills on mankind celebrates its successes. That over 100 million people were murdered by their own governments, and billions imprisoned by the same, for some reason seems to be ignored. All this misery an suffering was brought to these poor people in the name of creating heaven on earth. The fellow travelers of communism, the modern day equivalent, concerned with noble sounding slogans like “social justice”, “inequality of income”, and “saving the planet”, would visit more of the same on us. The new breed might pretend they are neither communists nor fascists, but they all act from the same playbook, and if given power yet again, would just pick up where the other butchers left off.

  1. Sorry, CM, but that looks more like a Marxist orphanage for orphans of political dissidents than anything found under a modern democratic capitalist society.

    Well that particular one is from Oliver Twist, and was a workhouse (probably the Strand Union Workhouse in Cleveland St, only nine doors from where Dickens lived) rather than an orphanage.
    ;-)

    Except that a major part of our modern democratic capitalist society is the recognition that if workers are afforded a degree of protection / an ability to negotiate wages and conditions then society becomes a better place to live. I.e. providing some balance rather than a complete dictating of terms.

    The basic kinds of things that are taken for granted now, but were hard-fought over decades and decades (as outlined at Alex’s link).

    You don’t have to be anything like a Marxist to acknowledge that. It doesn’t necessarily have to accompany murdering hundreds of millions of people.

    BTW Dickens was forced, at the age of 11, to work in a blacking factory which was full of rot and rats. Sounds like misery and suffering to me.

    I doubt anyone here would argue with any of that but even you have to admit that what the unions have morphed into, so sinister, so pernicious, and so Un American (forcing people to join unions in order to work, forced to pay dues to bankroll candidates that they don’t support, and via card check doing away with the secret ballot so they can commit thuggery and intimation) that it nowadays resembles the mafia. Unions have ruined the car industry (requiring federal bailouts to survive, no wonder folks don’t buy American anymore), the steel and textile industry (sending more and more jobs overseas) , education and the school system (any wonder American kids are dumber than ever and can’t compete, over paid/under worked teachers unions), and even some cherished iconic American corporations (Hostess readily comes to mind, where greedy union members refused to budge an inch and preferred bankrupting the company to nominal and reasonable compromises on their part).

    A cogent argument could be made that public sector unions should be illegal since the government should work for the citizens and honor their loyalty to them and not the worker who gets paid with tax payer dollars.

    Now we have such an incestuous relationship between the Democratic party and unions (shovel ready jobs only going to union shops instead of a fair bid process, public sector employees making almost twice that of the private sector for the same skills and on the tax payer dime,and forcing the cost of just about everything, good and services and running an ever expanding government bloated by union employees to cost way more than it should.

  4. Marxism is chic in Seattle. It starts with middle-class kids who are embarrassed by their parents. Only trouble is – they seem never to outgrow it. I’m sick to death of the grey ponytails who live like roaches and have all the answers.
