Posted on 03/06/2019 7:09:42 AM PST by NOBO2012
Its the natural progression of things: Millennials believe calling yourself a socialist is sexy.
Remember the way-cool Sixties when guys used to attend protests and rallies to get laid, because young women could not resist such caring, passionate, liberal guys? Now theres an app for that. But as in the way of all flesh the guys have had to up the ante on their care, passion and liberalism - all the way to socialism:
Things have gotten so social with socialism that the young and restless now can consult a dating app called Red Yenta to find the fellow socialist of their dreams. Creators Marissa Brostoff, 33, and Mindy Isser, 28, were concerned that socialist men were not dating socialist women, and described their new dating platform as a "communal service" to help filter through a potential date's political leanings.
Im too sexy for my shirt
After 12-18 years of publicly funded brainwashing the Millennials and their follow-on generation have been primed to embrace the utopian ideal of socialism.
"Coolheaded Obaman technocracy is out; strident left-wing moral clarity is in. And while this atmospheric shift is felt most acutely among the left-literary crowd, it's also bled into the general discourse, such that Teen Vogue is constantly flacking against capitalism and one of the most devastating insults in certain corners of the internet is to call someone a neoliberal,"
Because liberal - neo or otherwise - is no longer cool enough, edgy enough or anti-capitalist enough to be sexy. In order to be sexy these days you need to clamor aboard the train to serfdom.
Leave your baggage on the platform and bring only your faith in AOC, the New Green Deal, a world of zero fossil fuel, 100% renewables and no bovine flatulence. When you arrive at your sexy destination enjoy riding you bike to your mind-numbing public sector job and to que-up to shop with your reusable bags where there will be little choice as to what you buy. Sorry that your educators forgot to tell you what life as a 21st century citizen of the world in a socialist paradise entails.
Socialism's millennial fans don't even know what it is. Millennials ignorant of socialism's appalling economic and human-rights history increasingly embrace socialism and its naively unrealistic prescriptions for ending all human want," says a New York Post editorial, noting that a recent Gallup poll found that 57 percent of Democrats have a positive view of socialism.
"These socialists insist they don't support repressive states like the Soviet Union or North Korea," The Post said, and instead "point to Scandinavian-style socialism in nations like Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as 'true socialism.' One problem: Those countries aren't socialist."
They tried it, but they dont necessarily like it.
Now theyre fixing it. To paraphrase Meryl Streep: when are we going to stop brainwashing our children!
Remember: only you can prevent brainwashing

The only thing socialism will give you is poverty, squalor and eventually death.
The goal of socialism is Communism.....Lenin.........................
leftard programming + low self-esteem + irrational psycho-epistemology + negative sense of life + concrete bound mentality + anti-effort mentality = acceptance of socialism
Making everything free, including freeing the population of guns, is the new path Democrats are using to assume the throne.
-Making air transport illegal, building bridges to Europe and Hawaii
-Destroying and re-building EVERY structure in the USA using green tech
-Doing away with concrete as a construction input
-Saving money for socialized medicine via fewer funerals
-Eliminating beef-eating pets
-Cross-breeding humans and rabbit so we can all become vegans
From the Washington Times, April 30, 2012:
New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has [since deleted] an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."
"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.
The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning. ..."
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA
From the website of the Communist Party, USA...
(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
After the election....
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
In other parts of the video, which surfaced late Monday, she talked about her life in Washington, DC, as a new member of Congress, calling it super weird.
Here in DC its like, so weird. Its like everybody is like, a spy. Like, its so bizarre, she said.
Its like you could go out to get a coffee and the person thats, like, sitting at a table in the corner of the restaurant is like, you know, like, she said, as she made typing motions.
Then they go and, like, they text all of their friends that they saw so-and-so at this cafe and its like, triangulation, she continued. And its super weird.
"'The Black Book of Communism,'; a scholarly accounting of communisms crimes, counts about 94 million murdered by the supposed champions of the common man (20 million for the Soviets alone), and some say that number is too low."
