Hear, O children, a father’s instruction, be attentive, that you may gain understanding! Yes, excellent advice I give you; my teaching do not forsake.
When I was my father’s child, frail, yet the darling of my mother, He taught me, and said to me: “Let your heart hold fast my words: keep my commands, that you may live! “Get wisdom, get understanding! Do not forget or turn aside from the words I utter.
Bring it On
One of the advantages of age is that you have memories of what has worked in the past and what has not and one of the advantages of having blogged for nearly a decade and shot hundreds if not thousands of video interviews is that you have a large amount of work to fall back on for references.
That’s why when I hear supposedly smart people defend communism and/or socialism and insist that it is better for society It’s important to go back to the source material, as Stacy McCain did four years ago when discussing Jesse Myerson, former media coordinator for Occupy Wall Streets whitewashing of communism:
“[T]here is only one way in which the murderous death agonies of the old society and the bloody birth throes of the new society can be shortened, simplified and concentrated, and that way is revolutionary terror.”
— Karl Marx, 1848
Communism’s explicit and enthusiastic embrace of violent “revolutionary terror” is among the many facts that self-described communist Jesse Myerson seeks to ignore or evade in pretending to correct our “huge misconceptions about communism.”…
…A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is … And the victorious party must maintain its rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionaries.”
— Friedrich Engels, 1872
At the time I noted the following:
Mind you these aren’t the quotes of a Lenin or a Trotsky (which Stacy supplies as well) nor the quotes of a Stalin or a Mao who outdid both of them in mass slaughter. These are the words from the founders of the idea of communism themselves who can not be presumed to be false representatives of the philosophy they founded.
In other words bloodshed is part of the fabric of communism and socialism as the founders of these philosophies explicitly and undeniably state.
This explains two specific things we have seen lately. The increased violence by the left and their attempts to disarm us
It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more… The media are now openly calling Trump supporters “Nazis” and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with. This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and justifies mob violence.
Here is the list, so far, and remember that if any one of these things happened to a Democrat, the media would use the story to blot out the sun for weeks. Remember how crazy the media went over a nobody rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask, a GOP stafferwho criticized Obama’s daughters? And yet, hundreds of Trump supporters are harassed and brutalized and the media only dutifully report them, if at all. That is because the media are desperate to normalize and justify violence and harassment against Trump and his supporters.
And while the media openly encourage this violence against us, the media also campaign to disarm us, to take away our Second Amendment right to defend ourselves.
That’s the real problem for the left. They have lost the argument in the public square and the media’s cons have been exposed by Donald Trump and the economy is booming all over the place:

Republicans promised jobs, tax reform, and a booming economy.
Republicans continue to deliver:

so now the last option left is violence.
Unfortunately for the left the United States populace is the best armed in the world so one doesn’t have to flee the rise of socialistic terror, we can fight and when it comes down to it college age socialists don’t like getting shot.
This isn’t China, this isn’t Cuba, Americans have the power to stay and fight.
That’s one of my earliest interviews with a lady by the name of Claria Csiong at a Tea Party Rally back in September of 2010 that I covered at the time
Clara didn’t have to flee Florida as she did China and then Cuba and because she was in a country that enabled her to fight back, instead of fleeing a 3rd time she was able to turn out and fight and nine years later her point of view is in power.
This is why it was so important for the left to take over the university and school system, because unless they silence the voices of history and wisdom they would have no prayer at all.
Closing thought, how ironic is it that even in far left colleges are being partially bailed out by the Trump economy:
President Carmen Ambar and other senior administrators have launched an 11-day presentation campaign in which all College and Conservatory faculty, administrative and professional staff, Student Senate, student media, and other constituencies will see the largest overview of Oberlin’s financial situation to date, along with Ambar’s proposed plan to rectify Oberlin’s ever-worsening deficit.
The College managed to reduce its deficit from $5 million to $3 million this year, largely due to a last-minute admissions push that secured an additional 27 students at the beginning of the academic year. Unexpectedly high investment returns after a market uptick also contributed to the decrease.
Where would these socialists be without capitalism?
