Democratic Socialists Openly Calling For Communism After Ocasio-Cortez Win

Submitted by Far Left Watch

The Democratic Socialists of America recently got a major boost when one of their endorsed candidates, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, beat out incumbent Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary last Tuesday for New York’s 14th Congressional District.

This far-left political organization previously made headlines when leadership from their Iowa State campus chapter encouraged people to shoot president Trump and when leadership from their University of Georgia Chapter called for the execution of house GOP members. Now multiple DSA leaders are publicly endorsing communism, an ideology responsible or the oppression, incarceration, and murder of tens of millions of people.

Here is the original tweet from Olivia Katbi Smith, who is the co-Chair of the Portland DSA chapter:

Shortly after, other DSA leaders weighed in with their endorsement of communism.

The Charlottesville DSA co-chair:

The Hudson County DSA co-chair:

The Seattle DSA co-chair:

An Officer for the Queens DSA chapter:

Since her win, legacy media has rolled out the red carpet for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and for “democratic socialism”. She has done interview after interview and appears to be starting her “late night comedy” circuit but for some reason, her affiliation with an organization whose members have openly called for the murder of their political opposition and who are now endorsing a violent authoritarian ideology has not been brought into question. Why is that? Consider the alternative: a Republican winning a primary and being endorsed by an organization whose members advocated for the murder of Democrats and whose leadership said “Nazism is good.” How differently would that play out?

If communism is good, historically find a place it has worked. Often the end result is hunger, death, and very rich leaders. In short, tyranny and suffering. Capitalism is carrots, communism is sticks.

My God, these people are fucking monsters.  Do they have any clue as to what their bolshevik idols actually DID in the last century?... how many tens of millions of innocent people were intentionally starved and worked to death... or simply murdered outright?  This is no matter to be shrugged off as just another political philosophy, folks.  Communism KILLS... period.  And the people with stars in their eyes at the mere mention of this horrid belief system are the same stubborn asses who tolerate no dissenting opinions (antifa).  They are all enemies to freedom-loving people.  Beware of them... shun them... ostracize them... call them out for what they are.  THEY are the ones not to be tolerated, for they would have us all enslaved eventually.

I think its great. Let them go as extreme as they want. The extremist are getting all the attention. IF there are more level headed moderate liberals theyre being drowned right out and will be forced to make a choice. Do they want to join the extreme or leave. Either way its dilutive because they all wont go for such extreme positions. Some of them will be as appalled as a normal person.

Oh, FFS, you guys get your panties in a wad about everything the left says or does. I didn't hear the right having a fit when there were calls to make the US a Chrisian Theocracy ~2003-ish from the crazies on the right. Some of this is election year BS from both sides trying to get voters off the couch.

 

If you want to stop the spread of socialism and communism, then you have to stop toeing the Republican Party propaganda line about the wealth inequality. By that, I don't mean the income gap for earners so much as how the wealth has increasingly been siphoned off to the 10% since 1971. At some point, as destible as you might find it, the wealth will *have* to be redistributed because the 10% will have it all. They'll even pay for the laws so it's all legal. Set up some barriers so the flow of money has to pool down lower or face more and more people tired of being kicked down the ladder. Youe, and my, days of being kicked cometh sooner or later.

If the question becomes a choice of Life under Communism, or Death in as a Free Man, I choose Death.

While I will make the choice willingly, you can bet on the idea that a lot of Communists will die with me.

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

Lack of historical perspective gives rise to  blind idealism. Communism"sounds" good so it MUST be good. Never mind the historical realities of 149 mil+ mass-murdered and uncounted millions more sent to an early grave yearly because of the massive misallocation of resources due to idiotic Command and Control economics and its forced rationing of inadequate resources that result from a dis-incentivized economy and the flight or murder of the productive. Witness Venezuela.

And beware, as this article shows, inside every "Democratic Socialist" there may lurk a latent Communist, reluctant to come out, until support is given to the like-minded.

I’ve explored Chinese communism the most. Started on a raft in a lake with 7 gentleman. 50 million, a conservative number, would die. People ate their babies to avoid starving. They’d soak chlorella in urine to cure it as it was the only food for many. 

 

Starvation is a horrible way to go.

Maddening. 

 

It was the youth at universities that were the muscle for them during the cultural revolution. 

“Schools were closed to free students to join the Red Guards. The movement escalated but it also splintered into factions, all claiming fervent devotion to Chairman Mao. Mao promoted, or at least sanctioned, a personality cult that exceeded that created for Joseph Stalin. Lin Biao was a major influence in the creation of the personaliy cult.”

Here's some information to add to your database:

CHINESE COMMUNISM?

YES, but it was JEWISH when it started.

The following article by Arnold Leese is reprinted from Gothic Ripples, No. 49, dated 28th February, 1949. It shows that the seeds of Bolshevism were planted in China by Jews, who also tended and trained the growth that resulted...

Let me be clear, I am *not* advocating communism or socialism. I'm saying that was the wealth inequality gap grows wider faster and we all slowly drown in taxes, fees, and stagflation more and more people start seeing the redistribution of wealth as both a good thing and a necessity. So, that being said, if you see it gaining traction, maybe it would be smart to preempt it.

Interesting you mention Iraq, a war waged by the Luciferian Bush ("Scherff") family because the Iraqis refused to accept the Rothschild death/debt scrip.  If some of the troops were Christian, they were at best luke-warm and at worst completely ignorant.  Remember, that was before the internet.  If you see abortion as a "women's health issue" and not the murder of an innocent, that is your problem.  Though, if anyone died in clinic bombings that is not justified.
