Your Mom. She's been used by all of them.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

--J.D.


A Marxist, a Leninist, a Maoist, and a Stalinist walk into a bar. The bartender asks "what will you have?"

The Marxist thanks the bartender, and orders a beer as to signify his comfort with the working class that will soon be in charge.

The Leninist asks for the owner. When the owner comes out, the Leninist murders him and his entire family just to be sure, and gives the bar to the bartender.

The Stalinist sends the bartender into snowy exile because he doesn't trust him and wants someone else to run the bar. He shoots that guy. He then recalls the first bartender just in time for the first bartender to run off the German who claims to hold the lease.

The Maoist watches this, and writes his thoughts down in a book with unreasonably small pages.

The punchline? The place winds up being a McDonalds.

NBC get serious about Oprah, then reconsiders.

NBC deletes tweet welcoming 'OUR future president' Oprah (via Yahoo)

NBC deleted a tweet posted during Sunday night’s Golden Globes telecast which appeared to endorse the suggestion made by host Seth Meyers that Oprah Winfrey should be president of the U.S.

“Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” NBC tweeted during the comedian’s monologue on Sunday night.

In a statement released Monday, the network said the tweet, authored by a “third party agency,” was “in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement.”

Well why not?

So you admit you're wrong about "identity politics"?

Nope, Marxism is identity politics. Just like the Democrats practice. You have everyone divided between the oppressor class and the victim class. There's just more classes of each in the modern Democratic Party version, with an emphasis on race, gender, and religion.

You won't get an argument from me about the statement that Democrats practice identity politics big time. There we agree.

But if it's Marxism, how come so many billionaires love it? And not just "diverse" ones either.

They're the ones who think they'll be the oligarchs in the New Order. The USSR had billionaires too. So does Venezuela and Cuba.

Dennis Kucinich is running for Governor of Ohio.

Enjoy.

@ScottWartman

There are now seven Ohio governor candidates. But Kucinich is the only one who's seen a UFO at Shirley MacLaine's house. @jbalmert gets the latest in the governor's race https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/p ... 014165001/

Wildcat:
So your definition of "Marxism" is any system with oligarchs (that you don't like)?

I do not think you know what that word means.

Note to Wildcat:
There weren't any Soviet billionaires left over from the previous regime.

Democrat billionaires profit from the current system. If they are "Marxists", then we are already Soviet and Trump is our Gorby. :BigGrin3:

Speaking of former Trotskyites over by National Review ...

President Oprah? It Sort of Makes Sense.

Ben Shapiro would probably deny being a former Trotskyite, but he sure sounds like an objectively counterrevolutionary left deviationist to me.
