Socialist Group Calls For "Extermination" Of Capitalists, "Worth Shooting" Donald Trump

A socialist student group at Iowa State University has repeatedly made threatening comments about conservatives on social media, but the school says the comments are protected speech.

In one recent tweet, the school’s Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) chapter called for the hanging and extermination of all “capitalists.”

“The left has done a good job radicalizing juggalos, weebs, furries, but I will not rest until ‘hXc’ stands for hang+Xterminate capitalists,” the group wrote in an October 4 tweet that has since been deleted.

After students brought the tweet to attention of the university, it replied via twitter by stating “this falls under free speech” and then offering available “resources” to student if they “feel threatened or harassed.”

Nor is this the first time that YDSA has posted threatening tweets, such as a September 30 tweet in which the club endorsed “shooting” President Trump.

“COMRADES: stay away from needle drugs! The only dope worth shooting is in the oval office rn [right now],” the group tweeted, though it subsequently deleted that post, as well.

Notably, YDSA is an officially registered student organization at the university, making it one that is “consistent with the mission and culture of the university,” according to the expectations for registered student groups.

While the university did not respond to Campus Reform’s request for comment, one student asserted that YDSA has a long-established pattern of making vitriolic remarks about conservatives.

“Overall, the club has had many hateful tweets against capitalism and capitalists, with the occasional directly-threatening tweet as shown above,” student Michael Fredrickson told Campus Reform.

“If this was a conservative group, all hell would break loose. It wouldn’t be allowed. Making them delete tweets isn’t going to do anything,” a recent graduate of the university commented on Twitter.

“Why isn’t the school doing something? This sounds like a threat to students on campus and in the Ames area. How is this allowed?”

Clearly a hate group, but for some reason I can't find them listed on the SPLC list of hate groups.

they tore down poster with a white family saying something of the nature (in a time of degeneracy, this is rebellion) and went into snowflake mode last year... fucking hypocrites... that school needs a good ole fashion house cleaning

Why isn't the Secret Service prosecuting these people for threatening the President.  That isn't free speech.  That's a felony.

Hang these socialist mother fuckers. I would like one to feel a 500 lb punch straight in the face.

Iowa State needs a lesson in threat and justice.

I went to that school - I've never seen this group in any significant force, and I'm guessing that Cuffs, ISU's fetish club (no joke, for student recruitment they would tie up a woman and put her out for display on a table, and they always put the table next to all of the various religious orgs) has more members and influence on campus.

In that city the cops don't harass the homeless community, any poor students who are down on their luck can always eat from Food at First (I had to do it for a month, myself), the town is super bike friendly and you don't need a car, and at the MakerSpace you can build just about anything you need for virtually no cost. Given that the guy is living in such a great town, what is he so pissed off about? That the socialist professors put students in debt so they can buy overpriced cheese+wine at Wheatsfield Grocery?

I thought you were describing Iowa City where the children of wealth declare their desire to kill the Golden Goose.

It has all the markings of free speech. Prosecutable threats to the president are very few because it is almost impossible to prove that there is actual intent to harm. Saying you ant to kill the president is not a threat or that you should kill the president is not a threat, it is diatribe. And it is a good thing to, after all if you wish or want someone dead (anyone, includding your high emperor) you should have the right to voice it.

One could say they need hanging and shooting.

That's because if hating the rich was a hate crime, they'd run out of rope to hang us with

Socialist student group at Iowa State threaten President= Free Speech.


Director of Michigan State Police posted a popular Breitbart News Facebook page post on her personal Facebook page that called the NFL national anthem kneelers “anti-American degenerates.” = “innapropriate”, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder docked her five days’ pay.

These punks are about as 'commie' as the spoiled, self-described 'socialists' attending Oberlin @$100K per year on their parents' trust fund money.

"Oh, hey there comrade, we're having a planning meeting for our big anti-bourgeois rally on Thursday night. It's at my dad's country club, and remember, they have a dress code, so no jeans."

Sounds like Antioch in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

It would be nice of some of them showered.

Yep, biggest hippie town in the Dayton area.

Lived in Dayton for a few years. Will I ever go back? Oh hell no.

You have my sympathy. I do remember some amazing afternoon thunder storms. Other than that? Too hot and too cold.

They are in effect anarchists. They THINK they are socialists, but Intersectional Feminism means that if they ever destroy 'the Patriarchy' there will be zero prospect of forming any consensus on the other side of said 'Revolution'. Thus, anarchy is the only eventuality of their aspirations

I think Trotsky would have a good laugh if were ever to see one.

"Trotsky," (((Lev Davidovich Bronstein))) got exactly what he deserved...a pick-ax in his head. All Bolsheviks should share the same fate.

People who believe in private property rights and the enforcement of private contracts.  And that can lead to both good and bad things. 


Commies, OTOH, have to show up to take your shit, which generally leads to bad things.

How long would you last if you set up a table on that vampuw and handed out copies of Bastiat's The Law.?

techpriest's picture

A pretty long time, actually. There are plenty of conservative students there who would be glad to talk to you. Ron Paul's biggest base of supporters is also located in Ames - all the names you saw on the national news in 2012 in relation to his campaign live there, save for 1-2 who live in Ankeny, a suburb of Des Moines.

Better get a new dictionary. We are a FACIST society old school definition: collusion between .gov and .corp. go look up that word. Doesn't include that little tidbit anymore. Authoritarian socialism. Americans are fucking dumba.

Curious: Define capitalists

This is important, actually. In the leftist mind there is this large mass of "the people," and after that you only have decamillionaires and up. Capitalist = C suite executive = big house, yacht, and so on.

After that, you only have people who are for or against the aforementioned group having unlimited power. When they have less, the people have more, and so on.

Obviously, when you have such a childish view of reality, all of the other banalities of socialism suddenly seem like a good idea. Maybe if these kids spent a little less time in school and working with real people, and traveled to other parts of the world and actually spent time with locals, they would refuse to listen to the fearmongering on TV and Facebook.
