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

Authored by Anthony Gockowski via,

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?”

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?

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.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that commies truly aren't people.

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."

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.

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.
