Big City Mayors Move to Out-Fascist Gubernatorial Counterparts [Updated]

The Evening Campaign Update

Two very disturbing videos emerged on Saturday that make one marvel that they could actually have been made in the United States of America. One came from New York City, the other from Los Angeles, the two largest cities in the country.

First there was this from Marxist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. You have to see it, and read the subtitles along with, to believe it:

“…we still know there’s some people who need to get the message. And that means sometimes making sure the enforcement is there, to educate people and make sure the social distancing is there. So, now it’s easier than ever. When you see a crowd, when you see a line that’s not distanced…you can report it right away so we can get help there to fix the problem…it’s as simple as taking a photo…take the photo and put the location with it and, bang, send a photo like this and we will make sure that enforcement comes right away. Text the photo to 311-692 and action will ensue.”

Holy crap. Just be thankful that Stalin, Hitler and Mao didn’t have today’s technology to use as tools to assist with their surveillance efforts, so that they could send ‘enforcement’ to ‘fix the problem.’

Note that de Blasio doesn’t say ‘law enforcement,’ just ‘enforcement.’ Why? Because there is no ‘law’ being enforced here. The only thing his ‘enforcement’ squads are ‘enforcing’ are his imperial edicts, which may or may not ever be shown in court to have actually been backed up by any law.

This tiny little 8-foot tall goon is so insecure in his authority that he is now resorting to recruiting ordinary citizens to spy on one another and tattle under the myth that doing this will somehow keep them ‘safe.’

What could possibly go wrong?

As if that weren’t disturbing enough, take a look at this image coming out of Los Angeles, as its thug Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti orders a bulldozer to fill the world-famous Venice Skate Park with sand in order to keep kids idle at home:

Note that Garcetti is the same guy who just a few days ago announced that he will not allow any gatherings of large crowds such as concerts and sporting events until 2021. He is taking these draconian actions to tighten down the vise of government on his population even as governors around the country are announcing plans to begin reopening their states in the coming weeks.

Can this agenda be anything other than pure, raw politics?

And to pile insult onto injury, there is this report out of San Diego:

Citations were issued to 22 people found near the beach in Encinitas in violation of San Diego County’s stay-at-home order, authorities announced Saturday morning.

The tickets were issued Friday to people who “were watching the sunset, having picnics near the beach,”  according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

“Everyone is required to stay home, except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care or go to an essential job,” the department tweeted Saturday morning. “Complacency is the enemy. Take social distancing more seriously to stop coronavirus.”

[End]

Complacency is the enemy, comrades.

We know there’s some people who need to get the message, comrades.

Send a photo and we will send ‘enforcement,’ comrades.

We’re all in this together, comrades.

God bless um…er….America?

How to Deal With Your Bernie Sanders Supporting College Kids This Christmas

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here is your “electable” Democrat presidential candidate.  – Three days after President Donald Trump held a rally with more than 20,000 voters on-hand, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Joe Biden, held a rally in a room the size of your average Houston Heights neighborhood master bathroom with a whopping 98 people there to listen to him struggle to name what state he was in. I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

The corrupt fake journalists in America’s corrupt fake news media tell us that Biden is the most “moderate” Democrat, yet he is the same Joe Biden who just last Thursday promised to kill “hundreds of thousands” of blue-collar jobs in the nation’s oil and gas industry so he could follow Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s grand plan to let us all freeze to death in the dark during the winters to come. In his next breath, Biden promised that all of those welders, roustabouts and frac sand specialists could be “retrained” to take one of the high-tech jobs that will surely be available in the glorious solar and windmill industries that AOC promises to create.

This is what “moderation” looks like in today’s Democrat Party. You continue to vote for these people at your – and everyone else’s – own risk. STOP IT.

Speaking of Democrat presidential candidates – I know you weren’t but bear with me – The Commie is here to help you and your family have…ummmm…..’productive’ conversations around the Christmas dinner table. – Yes, friends, you too can ensure that Christmas day for you and your entire family rapidly degenerates into taunts, cursing and fisticuffs by following the Bernie Sanders handy “Family Persuasion Guide”.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Sanders campaign mailed out many thousands of these pamphlets to students on college campuses – where Communism is all the rage these days – all across the country. So, if you have a kid in school sucking up about 80% of your income to pay for his or her young mind to be filled with the joys of Marxism and Alinskyism by leftist college professors who have never worked an honest day in their lives, expect to be harangued on December 25 as the little jackasses munch down on the very expensive feast you have spent the previous 48 hours slaving to provide them.

From the pamphlet:

It’s up to us as students and young people to make the moral appeal to our older relatives to join us in voting for Bernie, because let’s face it: They won’t be around for as long to deal with the consequences of this election, but we will be.

Get it? You old people aren’t going to be around much longer, so the ungrateful oafs who expect to live out their glory years on the inheritance you worked all your lives to provide them plan to lecture you on why Orange Man Bad and why you thus need to vote for the near-Octogenarian who, like your ungrateful kids and their professors, has never worked an honest day in his entire life, either.

Of course, it is undeniably true that we Baby Boomers will indeed die off much more rapidly should The Commie be elected to the presidency – the shortages of doctors and medical facilities that will inevitably come about under a socialist regime will ensure that. Of course, Bernie will get his own medical care as a member of the Ruling Class which also quickly becomes a feature of any socialist society. Your little 19 year-old ingrates are too ignorant to understand that at this point in their lives, especially since the public schools and universities work very hard to never teach them anything real about the desolation and deprivation any form of socialism invariably creates in its wake.

And that reality, of course, helps to explain why The Commie is so damn unpopular with the old folks. See, one advantage of growing older is that, with age comes this thing called perspective. You tend to learn stuff and retain some of it during the course of a human life, and one thing any human with the reasoning ability of the average alley cat learns and retains is that socialism is a lie, a lie that killed over 100 million human beings during the 20th century alone.

It’s also a lie that continues to kill millions in this century as wave after wave of younger people lacking in perspective, joined by old, lifelong hucksters like The Commie, continue to foist it on previous prosperous societies like, oh, say, Venezuela. Nevermind that people have run out of pet cats and dogs to eat now in Venezuela; The Commie, joined by AOC, assure us that socialism is just wonderful if only smart people like them are in charge.

That’s what Stalin and Mao and Pol Pot and Castro and Hugo Chavez all said, too.

So, friends, if your expensive little ingrate decides to start haranguing you and the other sensible members of your family on Christmas day with The Commie’s talking point messages, here’s what you do: Smack them in their stupid heads with the gravy ladle, march them to the front door, inform them there will be no more tuition money because you’re tired of funding this kind of nonsense, and tell them to go find some perspective in the form a job.

It will be the best thing you ever did for them.

That is all.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Marxism’s New Stalking Horse in America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That moment when all the liberal, rich New York Times subscribers on the Upper East Side sat up and said “hey, wait, that’s us!” – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who is fast replacing Bernie Sanders as Marxism’s favorite stalking horse in the United States, sat down for an interview on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper on Sunday, and hilarity predictably ensued.

First, our intrepid dancing heroine was, as always, completely unable to explain how she would pay for the $40 Trillion-plus price tag for her “Green New Deal” set of proposals, because of course she couldn’t – she’s a Marxist after all, and an incredibly ignorant and ill-informed one to boot.  When asked for an explanation by Cooper, she offered only a dodge:

 “No one asks how we’re gonna pay for this Space Force. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut.”

“We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care and education,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force. For all of these– ambitious policies.”

Oh. But she did offer a bit of a clue – and a warning for all of you wealthy liberals who think she’s just a cute, good-hearted gal from Queens or the Bronx or whichever burrough of New York City raised her to think the crazy things she does – later in the interview, when she said this:

“You know if you look at our tax rates back in the 60s and you have a progressive tax rate system, the tax rate from zero to $75,000 may be 10%, 15% etc. But once you get to the tippy-tops on your $10 million, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70%. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.”

So, for those “tippy-toppers” living in those muti-million dollar condos with wonderful views of Central Park in Manhattan who are already forking over more than 12% of your income in New York’s lovely state and local income taxes, that means that your new hero wants you to fork over more than 82% of your income each year to the various government entities that rule your lives.

Here’s reality: The Democrat Party has become the party of the rich in America during the first 18 years of the 21st century, as more and more rich people of European heritage assuage their “white guilt” by voting for people who specialize in reciting talking points designed to make them feel increasingly guilty.  These are the people who elected AOC, and if they keep re-electing her long enough she is eventually going to come and take it all away from them, because – and read this closely because it’s important – THAT IS WHAT MARXISTS DO.

It is what Marxists have always done, from Lenin to Stalin to Mao to Castro to that thug strongman who is starving his people to death today down in Venezuela.  THIS IS WHO THEY ARE.

Unlike Bernie Sanders, AOC has the advantage of being young and cute and able to release videos of herself dancing on a rooftop while she was in college.  Heck, she almost seems like a normal human being at times because of all of that.

But the best meme I saw on Twitter this past week was this one:

That’s right:  Stalin was young once, too. He was Russia’s AOC, around the turn of the 20th century.  As you can see from that photo, probably taken around 1900, he was a handsome young man, and no doubt an idealistic one who his friends thought was all hip and cool and stuff.  He could probably even dance, too, although the technology did not then exist to provide us video evidence of it.  That “60 million” number is probably an exaggeration, but there is no question that millions upon millions of human lives were lost because of this one man and his pursuit of his ideology, the basis of which is supposed to be “equality” for everyone.

But everything about socialism/communism/Marxism – whatever one wishes to call it – is a lie.  What it really represents is misery for everyone, as the people starving in Venezuela as you read this understand. The people pushing this “misery for all” philosophy can never explain how they would pay for all of their policies or anything else about them with anything resembling facts or truth because there are no facts or truth that supports them.

Which is of course what led to this final bit of hilarity in our cute heroine’s interview with Cooper.  When asked by Cooper about having been repeatedly called out even by the leftist media and her Democrat colleagues for repeated lies, she responded with one of her cute giggles and said:

“Oh my goodness,” an incredulous Ocasio-Cortez said.

“If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” she said. “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

Thus, the promotion of equalized misery for everyone becomes the “morally right” thing to do. How very Marxist of her.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is not a monster yet, because she has no power.  We enjoy making fun of her today because she makes it so darn easy to do.  No doubt, lots of people made fun of Stalin when he was 29, too, and nobody thought Nancy Pelosi was anything particularly special when she was 29, either.

Cortez was elected almost by accident, beating long-time incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democrat primary with just 16,898 votes in the heavily-Democrat congressional district. If the people in her district keep sending her back to congress long enough, she could eventually accumulate power and become able to hold the nation hostage to her insane policies just as Pelosi is doing today in her quest for open borders.

So laugh at AOC today, but know that she won’t be a laughing matter if she’s still on the national stage 20 years from now. Every Marxist monster in history was young once.

That is all.
