Life Will Come at America Very Fast if Biden Wins in November

Will 2021 be 1984? – That’s the question the great Victor Davis Hanson asks in his new piece at American Greatness this morning. Addressing the possibility that the hard left could actually win this year’s election by having AOC and Bernie Sanders serving as the puppeteers pulling the strings of a dementia-afflicted Joe Biden, Hanson takes the reader on a tour of what an America under far leftism would look like very rapidly after Biden’s figurative inauguration.

One of the most compelling passages is Hanson’s likely-accurate vision of how the leftist thugs would hound Biden from office shortly after he assumed it:

If Joe Biden is elected, the effort to remove him by those now supporting him will begin the day after the election and it will not be as crude as rounding up a Yale psychiatrist to testify to his dementia in Congress or shaming the White House physician to give him the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test in the manner that the Left went after Donald Trump.

It will be far more insidious and successful: leaked stories to the New York Times and Washington Post from empathetic White House insiders will speak of how “heroically” Biden is fighting his inevitable decline—and how gamely he tries to marshal his progressive forces even as his faculties desert him. We would read about why Biden is a national treasure by sacrificing his health to get elected and then nobly bowing out as he realized the cost of his sacrifice on his person and family.

[End]

Can anyone doubt this would be the exact scenario of putting the puppet out to pasture? Look at how the radical leftist Obama holdovers and disloyal RINOs have used constant strategic leaks as a way to damage the Trump presidency, all done without any regard whatsoever of the damage being done to our society in the process. Of course they would do it this way.

Another passage that those of the Jewish faith should all read and take very seriously is this one:

What should we expect then if Biden wins and either steps down or more or less is left as a diminished figurehead controlled by the hard Left?

First, there is one theme that unites “the Squad,” Black Lives Matter, the globalist technocracy, and the international Left: unapologetic anti-Semitism. We will see overt anti-Semitism in a way this country has not seen since the early 20th century, all couched in ideological and politically correct attacks on “Zionists” and “the rich” and “Wall Street”—and why Israel has no business being a “Jewish state.”

It has already begun with an NFL player voicing Hitlerian tropes and praising Louis Farrakhan, and then being seconded by an array of rappers, woke Black Lives Matter activists and “Free Palestine” demonstrations. To smear “the Jews” no longer is grounds for an immediate and expected apology, but more “So what are you going to do about it?” Anti-Semitism is deeply embedded within the DNA of the BLM movement—and professional sports as well, as we saw recently from the warnings of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Charles Barkley.

[End]

The Jewish vote has traditionally heavily favored the Democrat Party in the U.S. throughout its history. The reasons for this have always been and remain a complete mystery, especially since the elevation of the rabidly anti-Israel Barack Obama to the presidency in 2009. Jewish leaders in America have stood mute in the face of the brutish Antisemitism being put on display by the leaders of Antifa and BLM. They had better find their voices soon.

Here’s the thing about all of this, folks: Revolutions do not take place gradually. They happen very quickly and brutally. Yes, the Democrat Party has been incrementally instituting socialist policies in our government for the past 100 years, with all the attendant social and economic damage such policies inevitably bring with them. But what we face today from the radical base of the Democrat Party is not mere economic socialism. This is a brutish Marxism fueled by the brainwashing of two generations of college students by the pushers of critical theory on our college campuses and supported by a corrupt news media establishment that is now domination by those true believers.

This reality was illustrated clearly this past week by the flushing of Bari Weiss and Andrew Sullivan from the raw sewage cultures now dominant at the New York Times and New York Magazine. Those events make it crystal clear to anyone paying attention that to today’s revolutionaries, being a mere liberal thinker is not enough: If you do not fully buy into the critical theory teachings that all Jews, all Christians and indeed, all white people are in fact evil beings, then you must be shunned and expelled. Or even worse, should the true believers ever assume the levers of control and power.

In past election that involved leftist radicals like Obama and the Pantsuit Princess, loyal Americans always had the reassurance that the legislative process moves very slowly at the federal level. So long as the GOP controlled at least 41 seats in the Senate, it could use the filibuster as a tool to stop the Democrats’ most radical and violent impulses.

In case you missed it, last week Joe Biden promised to support ending the filibuster should the Democrats take over the senate. The filibuster is merely a senate rule, and can be repealed with a simple majority vote of 50 Democrat senators plus whatever radical Biden chooses to be his vice presidential running mate. So, Chuck Schumer would not even need an actual majority to achieve this goal, which would open the floodgates to all of the economy-and-society-destroying dreams of Bernie and AOC.

Life comes at you fast, folks. If the November elections go the wrong way, it could come at you in a flood like America has never seen before.

Go read Mr. Hanson’s full piece, and take it to heart. Then, share it with everyone you know.

That is all.

Democrat Mayors are the Lynchpins for America’s Marxist Insurgency

Hey, there’s one good thing happening in New York City. – For three days running now, anti-Marxist protesters in New York City have poured paint on the “Black Lives Matter” script that nitwit Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered painted on 5th Avenue in front of the Trump Tower Building.

Here is how that went on Saturday:

The first key to defeating an enemy is to understand and acknowledge his true nature.

For those who have been living under a rock for the last six weeks and may have missed it, Black Lives Matter is a radical Marxist organization whose goal is the destruction of the American Republic and the installation of a brutal, Venezuela-style socialist regime. Black Lives Matter is in fact indistinguishable from Antifa: A domestic terrorist organization funded by George Soros front groups and sponsored by the Democrat Party, just as the Ku Klux Klan was funded and sponsored by the Democrat Party for more than a century.

The woman in this video was arrested for telling the truth about BLM and Mayor de Blasio, who is himself a committed Marxist. Once you understand that about de Blasio, every action he has taken over the past months – the defunding of the police, the rampant releasing of violent prisoners from the city’s jails, the refusal to allow law enforcement to deal effectively with riots and looting and the burning of vast swaths of the city by Antifa/BLM – makes perfect sense.

America today is facing a Marxist insurgency by led by the Democrat Party, and the Democrat mayors who run the big cities are that movement’s lynchpins.

Here’s Mayor de Blasio in his younger days, when he used his real name, Warren Wilhelm.

Warren Wilhelm : Family tree by Tim DOWLING - Geneanet

Other Democrat mayors around the country are also integrally involved in leading this insurgency. The Mayor of Seattle, the reprehensible Jenny Durkan, is no different than de Blasio. Once you understand her true nature and goals, her active support of the illegal occupation of six square blocks of her city for a month – the CHAZ/CHOP – makes perfect sense.

On way to long-term changes, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan quietly ...

Ditto Chicago’s freakshow mayor Lori Lightfoot. Once you understand her true nature and goals, which are aimed at sowing chaos and destroying the foundations of law and order and individual liberty, then her looking the other way as mostly-black neighborhoods are shot up every weekend by roving gangs of thugs makes perfect sense. As does her refusal to allow her law enforcement officers to properly deal with riots and defend themselves from the Marxist rioters, which ended up getting 18 officers seriously injured on Friday.

Sounding a 'Distress Signal,' Lightfoot Warns Chicago is Falling ...

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey also belongs in this literal murderer’s row of despicable Marxist Democrat mayors. He is, after all, the limp-wristed simpleton who ordered his city’s police to stand down as the Democrat-sponsored rioters turned Ilahn Omar’s congressional district into a burned-out shell that now closely resembles her home country of Somalia.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey responds after being booed out of ...

Add to this list the Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, who has spent the week outrageously lying about the activities of federal law enforcement officers acting in his city to prevent of the federal courthouse and other federal property from being destroyed by the Antifa/BLM rioters there.

Here’s a shot of Wheeler posing with his ideological role model:

Mayor Ted Wheeler on Twitter: "Mayors, city leaders, state ...

National Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (who else?) and their corrupt toadies in the national news media have now decided to turn Wheeler’s lies about the federal LEOs operating in his city into a new utterly false narrative. Adding fuel to that fire is the Oregon Attorney General, another Soros-funded flunky named Ellen Rosenblum (pictured below) who yesterday filed a lawsuit to try to get an Obama-appointed federal judge to order the federal LEOs to stand down, presumably so that the BLM/Antifa thugs will be free to burn the federal buildings to the ground.

Oregon Attorney General Seeks More Funding For Elder Abuse Cases ...

I’ve talked a lot about the destruction being done to our country by Democrat governors as they use the Wuhan Virus as an excuse to willingly destroy their states’ economies and school systems in order to influence the November elections. But the mayors pictured here – and many others across the country – may actually present an even bigger threat to the nation’s survival for the simple fact that they control the police departments in their respective cities. What better way to sow the chaos that Democrats now hope will lead to an outright communist revolution in America than by refusing to allow the police to do their jobs?

Remember the faces pictured in this piece, because they are the literal faces of evil in our time.

Saturday News Roundup: Antifa Gone Wild, Teachers Unions Gone Bad, and Racism at the New York Times

Antifa gone wild. – The summer remains hot and out of control in Lori Lightweight’s Chicago. No fewer than 18 under-armed Chicago police were injured by Antifa/BLM rioters last night as they defended a statue of Christopher Columbus that the rioters had attempted to tear down in Grant Park.

Watch this clip:

Note that probably 80% of the rioters are the classic pasty-faced white Millennials who staff, organize and foment Antifa/BLM/Democrat Party-sponsored riots all over the country.

From a report at the Chicago Tribune:

At least 1,000 people swarmed the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park on Friday evening in an attempt to topple it after a march turned tense and chaotic when some people began throwing fireworks and cans at the police, who in turn struck members of the crowd with batons.

Following a rally in support of Black and Indigenous people, hundreds of protesters marched south on Columbus Drive shortly after 7 p.m. Then a person shouted that some Chicago police units, whom they had been trying to separate the crowd from by using bike-wielding citizen “marshals,” had left to protect the statue of the controversial historical figure.

Dozens of people in the crowd who were clad in all-black clothing rushed the nearby statue, surrounding the short stone wall that circled it. Some began throwing objects, such as cans and fireworks, at the officers. A few people tried to climb over the wall and were met with officers smacking their batons at them.

About 18 officers were injured, some of whom were treated at the scene and others at area hospitals, Chicago police spokesman Thomas Ahern said. About a dozen people were arrested and face pending charges ranging from battery to a police officer to mob action, Ahern said. He said the aerosol used by officers was pepper spray.

[End]

The key thing to remember here is that these 18 officers would have had a far better chance of avoiding injury had their terms of engagement not been so absurdly limited. Why would anyone want to be a police officer in a city where the corrupt Mayor expects them to go into harm’s way completely unable to properly defend themselves?

The people in these mobs are cowards, and cowards will only continue to grow bolder until someone punches them in the face. The rioting will continue so long as Democrat mayors like Lori Lightweight are in control. Sadly, the mass exodus of good officers from the nation’s police forces will continue as well.

John Lewis has passed. – Long-time Georgia Congressman John Lewis, who Nancy Pelosi has been illegally allowing to “vote by proxy” as he lay bed-ridden and semi-lucid in a hospital bed for the past several months, passed away last night at the age of 80.

Unlike the gangs of Marxist/fascist thugs we see the Democrats funding to destroy our cities today, Mr. Lewis was, in his younger days, a true hero of the real civil rights movement of the 1960s, and a close associate of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Can there be any question at all that the Democrats will now demean and tarnish Cong. Lewis’s memory by staging 10 days worth of politically-driven “funerals” around the country? Of course they will. That’s what the Democrats do. He deserves to pass with more dignity than that, but San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer and Al Sharpton just cannot allow that to happen.

Rest in Peace, John Lewis, if they will let you.

Dear public school teachers: This is the kind of thing that gives you all a bad reputation in the minds of millions of Americans. – Following the lead of the main teacher’s union in Los Angeles, a North Carolina teachers union – the Durham Association of Educators (DAE) – announced on Friday that it will only allow its members to return to work this fall if congress enacts universal healthcare and gives welfare benefits to illegal aliens.

From a piece in the Washington Free Beacon:

A North Carolina teachers’ union is calling for the implementation of universal health care and welfare benefits for illegal immigrants in order to reopen schools in the fall.

Just days after the Durham Association of Educators (DAE) issued a statement railing against the school district’s reopening plan, Durham Public Schools voted unanimously to hold all classes virtually for at least the first nine weeks of the school year. Included in the DAE statement was a call to adopt a variety of far-left policy goals before holding in-person classes, including Medicare for All and “direct income support regardless of immigration status.”

“There are concrete policies that have permitted other countries to flatten the curve and return to public life: moratoriums on rent and mortgage, universal health care, direct income support regardless of immigration status,” the statement reads. “We must fight together, collectively, for changes that will permit our communities to thrive during this pandemic and beyond.”

[End]

Utterly absurd. The average six year-old child has better associative reasoning skills than that on display in this letter. This is Marxism, pure and simple.

Public school teachers are the least of the problems with the nation’s public schools, although they tend to get most of the blame because they are ones who most often interact with the parents. But teachers unions, on the other hand, are the very heart of the problem, not just with the school system but with our society at large.

These are nothing more than thuggish leftwing political machines that use their funds to support socialist/Marxist causes. A sane society that wished to be preserved intact would order them all to be disbanded.

Being an anti-white racist means never having to say you’re sorry at the New York Times. – New York Times staff writer Nikole Hannah-Jones admitted this week to white people as “barbaric devils” and “bloodsuckers.” Naturally, no one at the Times is demanding that Jones – the lead author of the paper’s utterly false and inherently racist “1619 Project” –  apologize.

From a piece at the Daily Caller:

Hannah-Jones wrote that “the white race is the biggest murderer, rapist, pillager, and thief of the modern world.” in a 1995 letter that was originally obtained by The Federalist. Hannah-Jones also compared Christopher Columbus to Adolf Hitler, and claimed the “white race used deceit and trickery, warfare and rape” to steal land.

Hannah-Jones is the lead author of the New York Times’ 1619 project, and has defended violence and looting that occurred during protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

“And so when we think about someone taking an act to take something from some big box name store, it is symbolic,” she said of the looting. “That one pair of shoes that you’ve stolen from Foot Locker is not going to change your life. But it is a symbolic taking.”

[End]

Yes, surely, nothing says “social justice” like a spanking new TV or pair of Nikes.

Holy crap.

That is all.

The Biden (Sanders/AOC) Climate Plan: Socialism Wrapped in a Green Bow

The Biden (and Sanders and AOC) “Climate” plan is out, and boy is it a doozy. – Make no mistake about this: Joe Biden might be the “nominee” and official face of the Democrat Party in this general election, but the Party has been fully taken over by the party’s radical, outright Marxist wing. At best, Biden is nothing more than a sock puppet; at worst, a willing co-conspirator.

Yesterday’s release by the Biden Campaign’s “unity task force” on climate led by AOC is manifest proof of that reality. The “plan,” such as it is, is written in the soft, soothing language of the radical climate alarmist movement, but its vision is one of pure Soviet-style command-and-control forcing of “change” that is not even technologically feasible, much less financially affordable.

All you really need to know about this plan is who conceived it:

On climate change, the two candidates and their supporters had some serious divides to bridge. Over the course of nine months of primary debates, Biden touted his plan to build 500,000 electric vehicle chargers and put his faith in American exceptionalism while Sanders bashed fossil fuel executives and promoted the Green New Deal. To try to find a middle ground, Sanders appointed Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash, and Catherine Flowers, the founder of the Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice, to the joint climate task force. Biden selected former Secretary of State John Kerry, former Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy, and former Biden policy advisor Kerry Duggan, along with two members of Congress.

[End]

Oh. Guess who did most of the writing? That would be Ms. Prakash, a committed radical whose “Sunrise Movement” is just another front group for George Soros:

Prakash wrote about her experience on the task force on Twitter on Wednesday, explaining that she had two goals: to push Biden to increase his ambition on climate change in terms of timelines and benchmarks, and to place environmental and climate justice at the heart of all of Biden’s climate policies.

On Prakash’s first goal, there was certainly some success. Previously, Biden’s climate policies centered around achieving 100 percent clean electricity by 2050. The task force shaved 15 years off that goal. It also came up with a slew of closer, more specific benchmarks: Within five years, make all school buses electric and help spur retrofits of 4 million buildings by unlocking private sector funding and setting efficiency standards, and by 2030, zero out the carbon footprint of all new buildings.

As for Prakash’s second goal, she applauded Biden’s commitment to putting environmental justice at the heart of his climate policy agenda by directing federal funds to disadvantaged communities, ending pollution & toxic waste sites, and creating mitigation strategies and rebuilding from disaster in just and equitable ways.”

“We are leaving these discussions with policies that, if implemented, will make Joe Biden’s climate agenda far more powerful, equitable, and urgent than where his plans were just weeks ago,” she tweeted.

[End]

So, what do you think the term “unlocking private sector funding” means? It means massive new taxes on businesses and the middle class, and those taxes on businesses will all be passed along to consumers, harming the poorest among us the most. Because that’s what leftism in any form always does. What does “directing federal funds” mean? It means redistributing the wealth away from the GOP voter base to the Democrat voter base, because again, that’s what leftism in any form always means.

They’re going to “make all school buses electric” by 2025: Who’s going to foot that bill, to the extent it will be footed with anything other than trillions in new debt? Look in the mirror.

And by the way, the plan itself refers to those electric buses as “zero carbon” vehicles. They aren’t. Not even close.

The average EV is overwhelmingly made of plastics, because that is the lightest-weight material Tesla and other manufacturers have available to reduce the weight of the cars in their efforts to maximize their driving range on a single battery charge. Guess where plastics come from? That nasty old oil. The tires on a Tesla are no different than the tires on a Jaguar or a Ford: Largely made from petroleum products.

Many of the battery charging stations you see in your cities are actually powered by generators fueled by diesel or natural gas, a secret the industry doesn’t like to talk about. The rest are powered by the same electricity grid from which you receive power in your home or office.

What do you think generates that electricity? The answer is power plants. In many states, the majority of that electricity is generated by burning coal. In Texas, where I live, most of the power comes from natural gas power plants, although coal provides a significant amount as well.

So, what is “climate” gain will be seen from spending hundreds of billions of dollars on half a million electric buses? Basically, zero. It  could even end up being a net negative given that we haven’t even talked about all the emissions involved in the manufacture of those buses and the parts that go into them. That all requires the generation of power from some source, and those factories are most often powered from the local electric grid or from separate generators fueled by diesel or natural gas. Most of them also now put up small arrays of prominently-placed solar panels for show.

But understand: None of this is really about the environment or the “climate.” It’s about control. More specifically, it’s about socialism, and using the “climate” as a means of justifying its implementation and full takeover of the federal and state governments in America.

The very same principle applies to every other aspect of the AOC plan that was released yesterday. It is just the “Green New Deal” put into more flowery and obfuscating terms. None of it is even possible from a technological standpoint, and it is certainly not affordable.

But to these central planners, that’s fine, because those aren’t the real goals and objectives at play here.

That is all.

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.
