It doesn’t get much more communist than this — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reading scripture and verse, or close enough, from the Soviet Indoctrination Guidebook. To be truly free you must let the government take over everything.
Sprinkle a few ‘Comrades’ in the text and how do you tell the difference?
“We need to build a mass movement in America centered on working-class, the poor, the middle class,” she said. “One that is actively anti-racist, that is rooted in principles of universality. Everybody has a right to health care. Everybody has a right to an education. One that is rooted in principles of cooperation, that is participatory, that combats not only racism but misogyny, anti-queer discrimination, we have to have actively center those principles to drive us forward because the future and our future is in public systems, and it’s publicly owned systems. Because we need to take power over our lives again. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Mark Zuckerberg making decisions over my life. I don’t know about you, but the Waltons have already been making decisions over our lives and what we got was nothing.”
She’d be happy to have ‘Mark Zuckerberg’ as a speech oligarch for the Ministry of Thought. Controlling the narratives for the people’s republic of Amerika. But the Zuck recently came out in defense of free speech. And while it might be ill-advised to believe him (his clone army of Facebook Stasi are mostly #woke #sjw otherwise unemployable gender studies majors or modern liberal arts students) Bernie-World would need to control that word-circus.
You can’t have people saying whatever they think. The government needs to run that too!
So, to summarize, the private sector makes us slaves. To save us, we need big government control so that everybody has the right to what the government says they have a right too, with “but nothing else’ hidden under all the fancy class-warfare rhetoric.
