The Dangerous Reality Behind AOC

I think we’ve all figured out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t joining MENSA anytime soon, but she is a rising star in the Democratic Party for some reason.

Since November, I often wonder about this “girl from the Bronx” who came out of nowhere.

Firstly, who voted for this person? Where did she even come from?  How does a former bartender go from zero to hero in six months?

Seriously, how does someone with no professional experience or even a basic understanding of how our government works, land a seat in the House of Representatives?

Does anyone else think that’s strange?

Like most people, I dismissed AOC as a short-lived social media sensation whose voice would soon be lost in the noise of DC.  Although, in the meantime, I have thoroughly enjoyed the steady stream of memes at her expense.

Honestly, she is single-handedly destroying blond jokes.  There’s no way anyone could take her seriously, and yet, somehow, they are.

Her first piece of legislation right out of the gate, The Green New Deal, dealt a shockwave of horror through many even in her party.  A bill that reads like an 8th-grade sociology project is a cleverly disguised push for socialism that’s veiled as an answer to climate change.

 

Multiple Democratic Presidential candidates have thrown their support behind the Green New Deal despite wide-spread criticism and condemnation. The “aggressive,” “on-scale” plan to address the “existential threat” of “climate change” is “obviously” what this country needs to “survive.”  (Thank god this isn’t a video. My fingers would be cramping from all the aggressive air-quotes.)

I find it hard to believe “Sandy from the Bronx” came up with this all on her own.

My next question was: Who Did?

The Real Brains of the Operation

One day, I see a NowThis video pop up on my Facebook with AOC’s Chief Of Staff doing an interview.  I don’t recognize who he is, but I recognize the person on his shirt.

Subhas Chandra Bose is the Fascist from India that accepted the help of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis to free India from Britain rule.  The fascist idealist is a heroic figure in India for his fight to free his country from Britain’s overbearing control.

As Americans, I don’t think we can judge the guy for that.  After all, we did it in 1776.

What separates Subhas Chandra Bose from George Washington, is that he was a fascist and socialist.  He supported violence in political activism and even accepted help from Hitler and the SS to help his mission.

Subhas Chandra Bose and Hitler were kindred spirits.  Both Socialists, both nationalists, and both fascists.

With that in mind, who on earth works for AOC that idolizes this guy?

This guy isn’t just any guy on her staff.  It’s her Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti.

And Saikat Chakrabarti idolizes this Nazi loving fascist so much that he wears this shirt for everything.  Not joking, he’s selling professionally shot images of himself and his team on stock image accounts for $199 per license.

 

For a Socialist, he sure does act like a Capitalist.

Who Is Saikat Chakrabarti?

Alright, let’s start from the beginning.  Chakrabarti is a native Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from Harvard with a degree in Computer Science.

Saikat Chakrabarti Justice DemocratsAfter graduation, he spent eight years in Silicon Valley working for various companies.  He co-founded the wireframe building site Mockingbird.com and went on to help build the payment processing site, Stripe.com.

Once again, for a fascist-loving socialist, he sure does act like a capitalist.  Between Mockingbird and Stripe, Chakrabarti is a self-made millionaire.

According to an interview in IndiaAbroad.com, he became disillusioned with society after graduating from Harvard and earning millions.  Ummm, ok.

It was then he decided to leave the tech sector and go to work for the Bernie Sanders campaign.

You have to create the society you want to create and that is done through politics.-Saikrat Chakrabarti

Evidently, this society he wants to create involves breadlines and political oppression.  Per Chakrabarti, Sanders didn’t have all the “right answers,” but he was talking about the “right problems.”  During his time with the Sanders campaign, he learned how to harness the power of volunteers among many other things.

It was also here that he met his future business partners/activists, Alexandra Rojas, and Corbin Trent. (See above)

After Bernie’s loss to Hillary in the primaries, the team went on to form PACs Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress.

While Chakrabarti appears to be an ambitious and creative progressive activist on the surface, in reality, he’s positioning himself to influence politics for years to come.

The Reality

By helping AOC land her seat in the House of Representatives, Chakrabarti landed himself on the Politico Power Player list of 2019.  The interviews with Saikat reveal a lot about his plans, and himself.

He’s creative, cunning and using the one progressive he managed to get elected as a face for his long-term plans.

When you shoot for big stuff, you stay true to the movement, you fight unapologetically on the inside, that is a very, very powerful way to pass the radical solutions that are necessary to face the radical problems that you have.- Saikat Chakrabarti

Keyword: RADICAL

First, he set up Brand New Congress to issue a sort of “casting call” to communities all over America with the intent of finding and then backing as many radical progressives as he could enlist.  This was how he found gaffe-prone Ocasio-Cortez.

Here’s how it works:

Saikat Chakrabarti Infographic

I’ll give it to this guy, this is smart.  Really smart.  Chakrabarti founded and controls two major PACs with one simple goal: Pack the Government with Radicals like AOC.

Based on this alone, it’s clear that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t the brains behind her operation.

Here’s Why He’s Dangerous

Initially, when I started researching Chakrabarti I asked myself, “Why doesn’t he run for Congress himself?”

If we look at his goals, strategy and action plan; it becomes very clear.

  1. Running on his own ticket would divert his attention away from mass producing candidates to challenge moderate Democrat incumbents.
  2. If he loses his election, he loses his power.
  3. AOC and other candidates make up for his shortcomings in relatability, social media presence, and personality.  (Sorry, dude.  No one wants to watch you cut vegetables in your kitchen while you rant about climate change)
  4. If a candidate loses their election, he can move on to another one.
  5. By helping and funding candidates win a seat in Congress, he has a clear path to Congress as well.
  6. Even if AOC loses her next election, his process is repeatable every election cycle.

By structuring his PACs in the way he’s done, he’s essentially setting himself up to have a very long, very powerful career working behind the curtain to influence policies in Washington, DC.

Think about it, within the span of four years, Chakrabarti has propelled himself from campaign organizer to Chief of Staff.  All he had to do was find someone to be the face of his grand plan.

Let’s be honest, if you peel back the slimy layers of the swamp, the power players aren’t the ones messing with their dentures nonstop.  Nope, the real power players are the ones behind the scenes, advising on policy decisions, buying votes and playing a game by their own set of rules.

Granted, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is still dangerous.  People are listening to, and supporting the message she is parroting, but she is merely a vessel.

Don’t let them fool you, America.  If they want you to look here, it’s because something else is going on over there.

Donald Trump No Russian Collusion

[Guest Post]Dear Liberals, I Told You So

Finally, the first of three investigations into President Donald J. Trump and his administration alleging Russian collusion has come to an end. Their findings were clear and concise:

NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION!

I’ve been saying this all along but, not because anyone told me so, not because people around me believed there was no collusion (believe me, they didn’t).

I researched, I read, A LOT, I questioned everything I learned and searched for proof and corroboration at every turn.

The mainstream media today is controlled and owned by people and corporations with their own political agendas. Ultimately, their bias plays out in the way they present the “facts” to their audience or choose not to present those facts at all.

It’s our job to find the truth and help others to do the same.

For two years now CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and many other liberal news organizations ran a constant stream of propaganda and hatred designed to tear down the Trump administration and prove once and for all that the president colluded with Russia to steal the White House and cheat the American people of a fair election.

None of this was ever proven aside from stray coincidences, assumptions, and the infamous dossier created by Democrats for one purpose only: destroy President Trump.

I felt everyone around me buying into this tremendous lie and no one appeared to question it or consider anything to the contrary.

It seemed nobody wanted to see alternative facts or even contemplate that this narrative was conceived and deployed by Trump’s opponents. Nobody wanted to listen and the mere suggestion that there may be a different story elicited furiously and over the top reactions and even verbal attacks.

A Valuable Lesson

The more I think about it, the more I realize I should really say, thank you.

Thank you, to everyone that shamed me, called me names and laughed at me when I said the alleged Russian collusion story was a bogus hit job.

I say this with complete sincerity and take no particular pride in admitting they’ve taught me some things. Thinking for yourself is something to be proud of and I will never shame someone because we don’t agree.

I hold very little respect for people who enjoy name calling and shaming others for having differing opinions. Therefore, these people do not have my respect.

Sadly, their inability to see reason and facts has forced them to eat their words and I’m sorry to say I don’t have a whole lot of compassion for them after the way I was treated.

However, I do owe them my thanks.

They’ve truly helped me to recognize and take to heart just how valuable it is to allow myself to be vulnerable enough to continually search for truth and never allow myself to be solidified into any singular way of thinking.

I will continue to let life teach me how little I know and how much I crave and enjoy the neverending search for further knowledge and understanding. I relish in the journey and welcome the humility and innocence I feel with each new lesson I learn.

This is what life is all about and I have a lot of compassion for those who miss the chance to experience growth and change in this way.

A Good Life Lesson For Anyone

It is far too easy to believe someone when they’re telling you exactly what you want to hear. Therefore, when everything you hear and see fits perfectly into the narrative you’ve adopted, there’s a good chance you’re not seeing the whole picture.

Besides, it takes a great deal of courage to consider that you may be wrong and then put in the effort to prove yourself wrong.

It’s hard, but it’s worth it.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!  KEEP DIGGING!

Stubborn and ardent clinging to one’s opinions despite or without all the facts is the best proof possible of stupidity and the abandonment of growth. The moment we become unchangeable our forward progress ceases and we lose our curious spirit.  


Never lose your curious spirit

It is integral to wholehearted living and authenticity.

Always question anything and everything you hear, especially if it happens to be a popular opinion.

Use your brain, you have one for a reason. Investigate through a wide range of sources. Dig deeper. Do your own research. Consume and consider many multiple points of view.

Refrain from absolutely making up your mind until you know ALL of the facts (you almost never know all of the facts).

Listen to people, especially those you don’t want to hear. Always, always, remain teachable. Don’t believe everything you hear.

Vilifying and hating a person or group of people is ALWAYS one-sided, short-sighted, and lacks any kind of genuine desire to see the bigger picture and acknowledge the good in each of us.

Groupthink hatred for a person or group blinds us to the possibility of finding common ground and closes our hearts and minds to the humanity of the people we choose to hate or oppose.

When we allow ourselves to buy into groupthink and follow the herd like sheep, we deny ourselves our own individuality and humanity by side-stepping and avoiding the one thing we all share as human beings, our ability to communicate, connect, relate, understand, empathize and truly appreciate what makes each of us unique and exceptional.

We don’t have to agree.

In fact, I’m damn glad we don’t always agree. But, you must be able to listen, connect with other points of view and show respect for one another. This is how progress and change take place.

 

I hope you all find yourselves curious, questioning and open-hearted for as long as you live.

 

But, for those of you who prefer to be foolish, stubborn and cruel …

I’m sorry to say it but, I told you so.

Just kidding. I love that shit.

[Guest Post] Silence The Truth: The Suppression of the Yellow Vest Movement

Suppression of the Truth

Since I was a child, I have favored strong women in my life; both my mother and also my 6th-grade math teacher, Michael Nakovich.

I don’t know what Mrs. Nakovichs politics or beliefs are, however, she always told me “DO NOT LET ANYONE SILENCE YOU, OR SILENCE THE TRUTH.”

And the same with my mother, who is a proud Republican, and since my upbringing, I have never let anyone tell me to silence myself, or to censor my opinion. Even if it’s the other side of the fence, I don’t silence theirs.

However, today I am exposing the other side of the fence.

Yellow Vest Protests Are Spreading

Earlier this morning, the United Kingdom experienced the beginning of their own Yellow Vest protests that have been plaguing France for months.  The disgruntled anti-Globalist movement is spreading like wildfire across Europe.  Germany is seeing these types of protests as well.

Credit:TheVerge.com

Unfortunately, not many people understand what is going on in Europe. Especially since we have a leftist media that won’t report anything negative in their defense, at all.

Now, why is this important for me, as it should be important for you?

I’ll tell you why.

Yellow Vest or Gilet Jaunes in French, began in response to the Carbon tax imposed by French President Emmanuel Macron. This tax devastated the working class of France that rely on traditional means of transport to earn a living.

Gilet Jaunes quickly grew as more frustrated french citizens realized their government cares more about refugees and pushing climate change.

Subsequently, tensions are rising by the day, and soon protestors are rioting and flipping cars over.  Nevertheless, these brave revolutionaries show up every week to fight back against a government that has turned their back on them.

Little did they know, Germany would soon join the fight.

Europe Globalists are In For a Fight

Now, I have blood relatives in Germany.


They are pro LEGAL immigration, not illegal immigration.

Towards the end of the year last year, my own flesh and blood, my cousin was almost sexually assaulted in a public restroom by a refugee. She lives in a small town that I once lived in for four years as a child.

A town that used to have a population of 800 people and everyone knew each other’s name; a town that cared about each other, in Wingsbach, Germany, no one was ever violent. The community always came together to help each other.

However, recently when Angela Merkel opened Germany’s borders, women have been attacked, sexually assaulted, raped, and even murdered.

Sadly, my cousins in Germany no longer walk alone at night; they walk in three’s and four’s. Thanks to laws dating back to the National Socialist (Nazi) party, they still have no guns. As a result, their only legal means of protection is a bat.


This morning, the UK joined in the fight with protesting against what is wrong with their country, demanding a change in government, and policies.

Soon, I predict that they will overthrow the queen, and they should. They need to party like its 1776.

Brittains are tired of the high taxes as well as the communistic socialism that they are ruled under. There is no freedom to speech; citizens aren’t allowed to have an opinion against the Queen. They are tired of the refugees coming into their country, they are tired of not being able to defend themselves.

Media Outlets and  Social Media Suppress “The Silent Truth”

This morning, one of the first live videos of the UK Yellow Vest protests aired on Facebook. I shared that video on my timeline.

Facebook being the communistic community that it is, tried to silence my voice.

Naturally, they censored my post, because it “goes against community standards.” They also censored the woman, who lives in the United Kingdom, who originally shared the post; this is “The Silenced Truth.”

For those of you who follow me, know I have a mouth on Facebook. I don’t even tolerate the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ communistic community trying to tell me “what I need to do,” because I’m gay.

However, I will not tolerate Facebook silence me, for posting the truth.

I will never stop breaking down the ideology they force feed into people’s brains. I will never stop telling people what has really happened in foreign countries.

Most of all, I will never tell a lie to make “Facebook” a safe space.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things going on in the world, and sometimes being safe, means being informed.

Sometimes having safety should mean KNOWING WHAT IS OUT THERE. Sometimes being safe, means knowing what the truth is.

Facebook is not on your side.

And I will never rest, and I will never stop. The silenced truth hurts, and it’s a real bitch.

Many of us face permanent bans on Social Media for our Conservative opinions.  I soon predict that one day my voice will be cut off of Facebook permanently.

Socialism Will Rise Again With This Generation

Time Heals All Wounds

What’s done, can never be undone. The pain, the scars and the shadows of failed socialist systems can never be completely undone.

Unfortunately, they can be forgotten.

The history books are happy to remind us if we are willing to read them.  Story after story of starvation, poverty, and death.  How many lessons do we need?

Still, we see people supporting Socialism like it’s some new concept.

Why is it that horrible ideas like socialism and communism never entirely die?

That’s not TRUE Socialism. No one has ever tried true socialism.

-Idiots Who Have Never Taken a History Class

This strange case of amnesia pops up right on cue when a society gets too comfortable. The cautionary tales of the past die with each passing generation.  Eventually, the scars of Communism and Socialism fade away as society gets lazy, entitled and stupid.

Guilt and Resentment are the Roots of Socialism

Throughout all my conversations with liberals, the same trends emerge.  For those who have enough, they experience guilt for those who do not.

For those who do not have enough, they resent those that do.  As a result, liberals create an infinite loop of guilt that validates the entitlement of others. This entitlement, in turn, feeds more guilt.

Socialists promote equal outcome over equal opportunity and success is a dirty word.  In the minds of socialists, if you have more than your neighbor, it must be due to greed and exploitation.

We are fighting for an unapologetic movement for economic, social, and racial justice in the United States. -Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ahhhhh, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  The new superstar Radical Democratic Socialist of the Left.  “AOC” as the media affectionately refers to her, is the face of the modern Democratic Party.

Her path to Congress was a modern tale of David and Goliath.  Shockingly, she unseated the veteran Democrat Joseph Crowley in the New York primary to win her seat as the youngest member of Congress in history.

Her campaign was an impressive mix of fueling guilt and resentment.  Her only real skill is being a social media savvy millennial with a passionate drive at achieving social justice.

Now that she’s in Congress, she’s using her newfound fame to push radical socialist ideas. Unfortunately, she’s proven time and again she no real knowledge of how our government or economy works.

Never the less, her ideas are gaining support.

Which proves one thing:

Socialism Needs a Generation Stupid Enough to Believe in it

And here we are.  We are living in a time where college campuses require “Safe Spaces” and grading systems are oppressive.

Honestly, this hurts for me to admit this, but AOC represents the air-headed, entitled and spoiled members of my generation.

Indeed, I’m a millennial and the nonsense coming out of my generation is embarrassing.

Our attention spans are shorter than a goldfish and gratification is instant.  Likewise, many millennials have never heard the word “No” because of the negative feelings that might come along with it.  Offending someone is now a violent crime and jokes are considered hate speech.

This generation appears to be the most educated of any generation ever.  College enrollment has increased by 240% since 1965, especially among black and Hispanic communities.

With all this learning going around, how is it possible that the largest voting demographic in the US supports socialism at such a tremendous rate?

Alright, let’s break this down.

Indoctrination

Schools all the way up from elementary to graduate are now liberal indoctrination centers.  Schools no longer teach hard work.  They teach what they have to, and if a student receives a bad grade, the parents harass the teacher instead of holding their child accountable.

Now, promoting gender identity is more important than building strong, resilient minds.

At one point in our history, college was where you went to explore new ideas, challenge your comfort zone and embrace change.  Today, they are expensive daycares for young adults who aren’t earning degrees worth anything.

Case in point, AOC graduated from Boston University with a degree in economics and still believes a 70% tax rate is the path to economic prosperity.

Instant Gratification

We live in a society where anything you want is right at your fingertips.

Don’t feel like cooking? No, problem. UberEats will deliver anything you want right to your door.

Not in the mood to go out, meet people and socialize?  Well, social media solves all of those problems and more.  We have a world of information at our fingertips.

Consequently, many (not all) in this generation have no idea what it feels like to earn anything. So many don’t know what it means to work hard, fail, get back up and try again.

Nope, now they have adult-sized temper tantrums that result in gratification because bad PR isn’t worth it anymore.

All you need now is someone relatable and good-looking to tell you that you deserve that job or that salary.  The things you don’t have are a right and by others requiring you work for them, is the worst form of oppression.  Soon, everyone you know is angry and resentful.

It’s time for a revolution.

When Ignorance Bands Together

Historically, when ignorance bands together, freedom and democracy dies.

The uneducated, the misinformed and the lazy find a remarkable amount of resilience and work ethic when they are trying to help themselves to what someone else has earned.

Time and again throughout history we’ve seen this stupidity turn violent and result in death.  Unfortunately, when they are successful, the only thing they succeed at is causing more suffering and death.

We’re looking at our future, patriots.  We’re looking at the death of our liberty if we don’t do something to stop it.

Socialism has been patiently waiting in the shadows for a generation stupid and lazy enough to resurrect it.

Wake up, America.  That generation is here.

Reject Feminism

Ten Reasons I Reject Feminism

Once upon a time, our grandmothers and great-grandmothers marched for the right to vote. 

Women all over the country wanted more than a life of standing barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. 

They wanted to go to college,  have a career, make their own money and have an identity outside of their husband and family.

First Wave Feminism
Credit: thedevelopmentofwomensrights.weebly.com

It was a long, hard fought battle; but in the end, we won.  In 1964, the Civil Rights Act Passes giving all citizens of the United States equal rights under the law.  

Granted, overcoming generations of gender discrimination was still a battle fought daily.  However, as I write these words, there is nothing I can’t do in this country that a man can.

The transformation of feminism has changed over the past several decades, and to be completely honest, I don’t like what I see.  

As a married, gay woman who also happens to be 75% hispanic, you would think I, of all people need feminism in my life. Right?

Sorry, no.  I reject modern-day feminism and here are ten reasons why.

1) There’s Nothing Empowering about Modern Feminism

Feminist heads all over the world just exploded.

“Feminism is ONLY about EMPOWERMENT, Lynzee!”

Really?  Then why do Feminist power-houses like Barbara Streisand and Michelle Obama insist that women in this country are so powerless, they can’t even decide who to vote for without their husbands?

If modern Feminism is about empowerment, why does California need a law requiring major companies have women on their boards?

Feminism Sign

Modern feminist decries the patriarchy and the systemic oppression of women by the straight white male.  They have set their laser-sighted target directly on the backs of men as justification why women can’t be successful.

Women are stronger, better and smarter than men, right?  If feminists genuinely believe that, their narrative wouldn’t promote the concept of women being “less than” while feminism conveniently rushes in to balance the cosmic scales.

Which brings me to my next point:

2) Feminism Deflects Responsibility

Feminist must shift blame and responsibility from their own short-comings to someone else.  

Women aren’t responsible for their lack of success.  Rather, men are oppressing women and therefore must be shamed, guilted and coerced into submission because…equality.

When a society must establish a different set of rules, requirements, and quotas for a different gender or race; that is not equality.  That is simply a new type of discrimination against the qualified and talented that’s disguised as affirmative action.

I Need Feminism Because

This particular point applies to many aspects of feminism.  Just google the “I need Feminism because” and you will see what I mean.  One woman needs feminism because she doesn’t get asked out by boys or go on many dates. 

Rather than take the opportunity to do some personal reflection and figure out why the boys aren’t asking her out, she uses feminism to deflect responsibility onto men.  Obviously, there is something flawed with men.

3) Selective Outrage

This one really gets me.  Feminists are the loudest and most obnoxious in the room when it comes to pointing out and criticizing issues.

Credit: thesun.co.uk

However, I hear nothing but crickets when it comes to the horrid treatment of women and girls in many other countries. 

Feminists fight the patriarchal oppression of the United States tirelessly.  However, these activists can leave their home without a male escort.  They can attend whatever school they like, be whatever they want to be, drive a car,  own a home and even choose their partners. 

So why is it, that women all over the world who cannot have these things get zero support from modern feminists.  

In fact, it seems as though they are apologists to these oppressive cultures because Americans are rejecting their barbaric ways!  

As if turning a blind eye to such atrocities weren’t enough, Feminists put advocates for oppressive systems front and center of their campaign.

No thank you.

4) I Don’t Hate Men

Shocking, I know.  As a now gay woman who was once married to a man, you would think I hate men but I don’t. 

I just don’t want intimate relationships with them.  

I do however, acknowledge their strengths and invaluable contributions to society.  To deny otherwise is ignorant, short-sighted and just plain false.

Just because our society operated differently at one point in history, does not mean I need to hold bitterness and resentment to men today.   

Not only that, just because men operated within the socially accepted norms of their times does not make them bad or evil men who want to hurt or oppress women.  

5) Men And Women are Biologically Different

This is scientifically undeniable, end of story.  

Denying this and forcing institutions to accept women can prove to be dangerous.  I’ll give you an example:

The first thing that comes to mind is women in the military, or more specifically, women in combat.  If women are in active combat, yes, they have the strength to pull the trigger.  

However, do they have the strength to pull a 200+lbs man off the battlefield if his life depended on it?  Can a woman physically perform the required activities to do her job and ensure the safety of those around her?  

If so, then let her in.  I have no issues.  If she can’t, then I’m a solid no.  This isn’t discrimination; this is common sense.

If there are jobs in these fields where a woman can provide value and her life or others’ lives, don’t depend on her physical abilities, then great. I’m in for that as well.  

I reject this form of feminism because as a woman, I would not want to be personally responsible for someone else’s safety if there was even the slightest doubt I could physically perform a task.

There are other ways women can contribute in meaningful ways that don’t put others in harm’s way just because of progress.  

6) There’s Nothing Toxic About Masculinity

Read virtually any ancient manuscript or holy book and you will see an emphasis on the masculine and feminine balance.  

Like all things in nature, balance in the key to survival.  Therefore, criminalizing masculinity to promote your superior vision of feminism is detrimental to society. 

Do you remember at one point it was discouraged for boys to cry? 

Feminism has completely flipped the script to the point where now “boys being boys” is a bad thing.  That is unless you’re a girl who wants to be a boy, then knock yourself out.  Toxic masculinity doesn’t apply to you.

7) I don’t Need the Validation of Feminism to Make Something of Myself

Women have been overcoming obstacles and accomplishing great things for thousands of years. (Marie Curie anyone?)  Yes, early feminism helped open up the path for ambitious women to pursue their dreams, but now those obstacles are gone. 

There is nothing stopping a woman from becoming a doctor, a scientist, a lawyer or even President (as long as you’re not Hillary *shudder*).

So why would I need feminism to tell me I can?  I don’t and neither do you.  

In reality, feminism highlights and emphasizes all the ways women are “less than” or oppressed more than anything. 

Thanks but I already knew I didn’t need a husband to make my own decisions, Barbra Streisand.

And for women who do form decisions with the help of their husbands or partners? So what!  Just because some women have healthy and mutually respectful relationships does not mean it’s an insult to feminism.  

8) I’m Not Angry And Bitter

I’m sorry, but it seems like all feminists have evolved into confrontational, angry, bitter and resentful people.

Why are you so angry?

Maybe instead of focusing on what everyone else is doing and how you disprove, you should work on improving your own life.  

If a company doesn’t hire you because you’re a woman, go work somewhere else!  Why would you want to work there? It sounds like an awful work environment, and I’m sure there are plenty of other companies you would be happier working for.

Rather than being angry and bitter over a perceived injustice, walk away and find a situation that is better suited for you!  Why harbor and stew over something?

Personally, I don’t want to live my life as a perpetual victim.  I’d much rather choose to be happy, let go of the things that don’t serve me and strive to be the best me. 

This can all be accomplished without a cheering squad of hostile, shaved head, hairy armpitted, overly pierced and blue haired activists making sure I’m aware of all the ways I’m oppressed.  Hard pass.

9) Feminism Isn’t Progressive, it’s Regressive

If your activism involves antics that are so outrageous and cringe-worthy that people stop taking you seriously, it’s time to reevaluate your mission. 

The #MeToo movement along with #BelieveAllWomen has hurt the feminist mission more than it has helped.  By encouraging women to use assault and rape accusations regardless of proof, damages all credibility.  The result is more skepticism and doubt to any claim as opposed to what they wanted.  

The Kavanaugh circus made this worse by showing that feminists are willing to sacrifice their own in their attempt at political gain. 

Their quest to destroy the man who potentially posed a threat to their reproductive rights put several women and even young girls in danger.

Feminists have proven they are willing to lie, destroy, and disrespect anyone in their way.

Last, The Future Is NOT Female

Sorry, Kirsten Gillibrand.  The future is not female.  The future is not intersectional.  

If we want any hope for a prosperous future, the future needs to be men and women complimenting one another like they always have.

Overcoming the stigma that one sex is superior to the other is exactly what early feminists fought so hard to change.  Now, modern feminism is promoting exactly that.

Feminists have become the monster their grandmothers fought against.

I for one want to live in a world where no race, or gender is superior to any other.  Each have their strengths. Each have their weaknesses.

By working together to compliment one another is how we make our future brighter.  

[GUEST POST] America Saved My Family After We Fled Iran. We Must Protect Our Freedom

A Child Living in Fear

How does the child of an immigrant family from Iran feel about this country?

Well here is the story of my family … you decide.

As Armenians, we are all too aware of History and oppression and prejudices. 

Our ancestors were massacred by the Ottomans, and yet to this day, it is denied and not recognized. 

Did we all make a “Promise” to never forget? Yes, we did.  However, the world refuses to remember our losses, our tears.

Now, fast forward to the Bolshevik revolution.  Many Armenians fled into what was at that time Russia. 

They worked hard, had families, acquired homes only to have it all taken away.  How does this happen you ask? 

Imagine you are a young child when your home is suddenly invaded by a number of people with covered faces and weapons. 

Now imagine they storm your house, go upstairs.  You hear screaming, you run to the stairs to see your mother being thrown down by one of those men.

As you are crying and trying to help your mother, those men come down the stairs and declare that everything in the home now belongs to the people.  As a child, you don’t understand, and you scream at them only to be told that you are not sharing your wealth and that you and your family must now give it all up. 

So, you must now start all over. 

You must grow up working at a young age, get married, and work long hours into the night sewing. You are doing what you must to feed your young son and while you dream of leaving. 

Your husband now has left and somehow you manage to save up enough money to take your child and smuggle him out of the country. 

Where to? IRAN.

Life in Iran

This son, my father, now is grown. While he is enlisted in the Shahs military, he meets his future wife. 

Soon, they get married and have a little girl. 

Tensions in Iran, even in the ’50s was high.  The Shah was westernizing the county too fast.  At this time, my grandmother worked at the American embassy and could see the turmoil happening.  The danger escalating.

Two years after I was born, my mother becomes pregnant again.

“I will not have another child born in this country,” she says. 

Desperate and scared, my family flees with nothing but the clothes on their back.

My father, with a 2-year-old child, a pregnant wife, a grandmother from Russia half blind needing surgery and the mother’s sister; they secure passage to a land that they had only dreamed of. This land gave hope of starting fresh where they could finally be FREE.

The Land of the Free

I am now 2 years old, playing on the bridge of this ship when I suddenly see that everyone is screaming, cheering and crying.

I run to my mother and father. 

“Why is everyone so sad,” I asked. 

My father looked at me, picked me up and pointed to this grand statue in the water.  He pointed to it and said, “We are not sad my angel, we are happy.” 

“Why?” I asked. 

“Because we are now truly free, and no one can ever hurt us again.”

Honestly, as a child, I did not understand. 

I did not understand why we had to live with our relatives, why my father was going to school every night and work all day. 

Why did my grandmother, who was old, had to go to night school to learn English? 

I did not understand until 6 years later when my parents came back from a trip they took that day with big smiles on their faces and said,

“WE ARE NOW CITIZENS OF THE USA!”

America The Beautiful

I remember when my great aunt and aunt were here on a visit from Iran in 1974 when they got a call from their neighbor. 

“You have to come back home, or they will take it all”. 

We begged them not to go, my father said he will help them to become citizens, but as Armenians, they should not go back. 
However, they did and what did they go “home” to?

They took their home, they fired them from their jobs, they closed the Armenian schools, they destroyed our churches.

We never saw them again.

On another visit, my father’s cousins came to visit from the USSR. 

I remember taking them to a grocery store, you know, something we do every week and don’t even think about. 

My father and I were halfway down the first aisle when we realized they were not with us. As we went back to the door, I saw them standing there in tears. 

“You can just walk in and get whatever you want?” they asked. 

It was then that I realized what a shock this must have been to them. 

“The shelves are all full, nothing is rationed… is this the way it is all over this country?” 

My father now had tears in his eyes as he put his arm around them and said: “This is what capitalism is, this is how we live and it’s not just food. It is anything you want as long as you can afford it.” 

I did not expect their next words:

“They have lied to us our entire lives!  How can we go back now knowing what we do?” 

They did not go back. My father helped them to become citizens.

There Are Many Like Me

I am not the only one with a story like this one. 

Many have similar stories.

Many have suffered through history. 

And many like us have learned from our own history.  I was a“dreamer” and so were my parents. 

They ensured that I would be able to follow my dreams by coming to a country that some only dream of and others have been blinded to believe is evil.

Do we have problems in this country? Yes. 

Have I agreed with all its policies? No.  There is one thing I will always be grateful for; that my parents made the decision to come to a land like no other on this earth!

How does THIS immigrant child feel about this land?

It is my home, it is my life, and I will die to ensure that it never becomes the land that my ancestors, my parents and I fled.

GOD TRULY BLESSED THE USA.

This week’s guest post was submitted by a Closet on the Right community member.  Her wish is to remain anonymous while helping everyone understand the dangers of history and tyrannical governments.  Her hope is that we use her story as a cautionary tale to protect America at all costs, or fall victim to the oppression that has appeared time and again throughout history.

A Closer look at the Arizona Election

Arizona Midterm Election, A Closer Look [GUEST POST]

On The Hunt for Facts

Since the recent election, I was concerned about the outcome.

The Republican candidate in Arizona for Senator won on election night.  However, the Democrat candidate was declared the winner almost a week later.

With other elections such as Florida and other states having allegations of voter fraud, I took it upon myself to at least in a small way look at the results myself.

I started with getting the election results from previous elections, dating back to 2010 for comparison, going granular not only by county but by precinct in each county.

Then I made a spreadsheet.

Well, because I like to do spreadsheets and yes I am that guy. I did find some rather interesting results.

The Counties

First, let’s start with the simple number of registered voters versus actual votes counted.

Obviously, A should never be larger than B, such as Precinct 1 would have 500 registered but only 300 voted including early ballots, provisional, etc. Here’s what I found.

AZ Voter Registration Sheet

Apparently, the accounting is not correct, especially if these are supposed to be the official results.

I also added the 203 column, which referred to Prop 203 in 2010 which legalized medical marijuana in Arizona.

Again, it had the same pattern.

Polls said Arizonians didn’t want it. Election night the vote said outright that they didn’t want it.

But hey what’s this, a box? Oh, interesting there’s all these uncounted ballots, and well looky-here it just happens that there are enough votes that it did pass by 4,341.

As I mentioned, these are from the official results from the Arizona Secretary of State.

This alone shows that there is not a proper accounting in the least of whether the registered versus voters are legitimate. Here’s the breakdown by precinct.

The Precincts

AZ Precinct Breakdown

First, I am not showing the actual vote tallies merely because I do not know if they’ve been officially released to the public. First, since the vote tallies are yet to be released publicly, we won’t be stating those here. I just called up each county to ask and they either directed me to the location or they emailed it to me directly.

So until I see that’s it’s been put onto the website as released I’m going to treat it as embargoed, just in case.

The Breakdown

What I have here are all 26 precincts that have more votes than registered. Column F shows the number of votes over and above what was registered.

Columns H and I, well ok I guess I’ll show the votes here, no one tells anyone ok?

Column J is the percentage of votes to registered, essentially the turnout.

At the top is 67%, that’s the average throughout the state.

As you can see going down the column these areas had an overabundance of turnout.

And of course, the R and D is who won or a tie if the vote was the same for both.

Therefore, column O is the amount of percentage over and above the state average.

Yeah, granted, some areas had lower turnout over here and higher turnout over there. Taking these out for this point, there are areas that had 0% or really low turnout, and areas as high as 97%.

However, Doney Park at 1824%?

Oh, Yuma, it had zero registered voters and 19 actual voters, I have no idea how to calculate that one.

So columns P & Q (sorry for S & T, ended up duplicating) are then weighted to that 67% average of what that vote might have looked like. This would mean that McSally would’ve had 3,408 votes less and Sinema 5,712.

The next sheet I’ll admit is purely speculative, and you could shoot a thousand holes into it.

Previous Trends

Historical Voting Trends.

What I did here was in each election going back to 2010 I looked at all the races to look at one specific criterion.

On off-years such as this one, I looked at the Governor candidates, 2016 and 2012 were Presidential candidates.

For each precinct I wanted to gauge whether it leaned Republican or Democrat, going by say for 2018 Precinct 1 carried the Republican, and so on.

In total, I had five elections to base that on, so if a precinct went four or five for a given candidate I would say it would lean that way, less than that I disregarded it.

I then asked some simple questions. How can this precinct that was historically Republican-leaning could vote for Sinema?

That to me had a big disconnect.

True, maybe McSally didn’t campaign there. Maybe she said she was anti-Trump and the voters didn’t like that? Again, many variables.

But that’s a large number, as I show here that’s 11.4% of the precincts that for all five elections were leaning Republican decided to switch?

The next column is worse, looking solely at the 2018 election, those precincts that carried Ducey 237 decided to vote against McSally? Or more precisely voted for the Socialist candidate that in several videos referred to Arizona as the Meth lab of the United States, as well as the sixth C for crazy.

Yeah, I’m sure Arizona wanted that.

The next two columns I did the same questions for Prop 203, received even more stark numbers.

Now granted, demographics shift. Precincts get redrawn, some are added to this election and others dissolved. And as I mentioned maybe McSally had her own issues with getting the message out. It’s just that to me this seems very odd, someone is going to explain it to me.

So let me be clear. If Sinema won fair-and-square then so be it. The manner in which this was done leaves me with huge suspicions, and the released data doesn’t help that. In the very least it shows that the tallying has problems, either in the number of registration or in the vote counting.

Granted, mistakes happen. However, did anyone pick up on the last columns I had, where it said R and D?

The number of precincts that I note had 6 where McSally won and 20 that Sinema won. If you take out Yuma since I don’t know, zero registered voters, that gives 5 Republican questionable to Democrat’s 20.

Very interesting to me.

Right now I have serious doubts as to the legitimacy of Sinema’s election. Until those concerns are addressed, quite frankly, I do not recognize her as my Senator. There is too much potential fraud going on here, I don’t know what to make of it.

Lastly, I do concede that it may be that the Republicans need to turn out the vote better next time. I made this sheet to show the weak points versus the strong and who won in each. Heck, the Democrats could even use this, I don’t mind if they use it, I don’t mind a fair fight.

Left's Long March

The Left’s Long March Resumes [Guest Post]

Weaponizing government entities returns, with a vengeance

Antonio Gramsci believed that the path to the seizure of state power was not through violent revolution, like the Communist Revolution of a century ago, but through “becoming State.” Marxist revolutionaries would become the state by taking over the institutions of the state.
This plan/concept would become more familiar by Rudi Dutchke’s phrase for it, “the long march through the institutions.”

In today’s Twitterverse, the long march has been captured accurately by Iowahawk:


Midterms over, members of a newly-empowered Democrat House majority have made no secret of resuming their attack on our Republic from the institutions that comprise it.

Congressman Adam Schiff, soon to replace Congressman Devin Nunes as head the House Intelligence Committee, is wasting no time signaling his intention to use his committee to attack the Trump presidency and cripple its ability to conduct foreign policy.

He intends to use his position not only to end ongoing investigations into Democrats’ misconduct but to pivot and attack, using the subpoena powers of his committee within the institution of the House of Representatives as his castle from which to demand respect.

What can’t be co-opted (in this case, the executive branch), they will destroy.

The Plan

Adam Schiff

His plan is about twisting the emoluments clause into an unrecognizable form.
With the help of the “mainstream” media, Democrats intentionally confuse the American people to undermine a President because they lost the election.
Indeed, Democrats publicly plan to display their “resistance” files by weaponizing the House on this issue; and multiple others across other committees in a non-stop assault on this President to destroy the executive branch’s ability to govern.

Contrast this to the out-of-bounds efforts to expand his predecessor’s executive power, even extraconstitutionally on multiple occasions, and one gets the new Democrat modus operandi: co-opt or destroy.
They will mangle them emoluments clause into nothingness; just like they desire to do with the electoral college, redistricting, state power, the US Constitution, etc.


The Middle Eastern Re-alignment

Iran Nuclear Deal

President Trump has done a lot in the Middle East to help realign its power structures away from radical Islamists and toward moderates, reversing Obama’s policies of tipping the scales towards the radicals.

  • Through ending the Iran “nuclear deal.”
  • Standing up to Iranian saber-rattling
  • Calling them out in front of the world at the UN
  • Supporting our historical allies
  • Snubbing our adversaries once again
  • Recognizing the capital of Israel
  • Moving the US Embassy there, etc.,

Thus, the President has made it clear US leadership is back and leading from the front.

Libya: A Warning to Islamic Dictators


The sad reality of international relations in the Middle East is that there are no good guys, just less bad ones.

Democrats have put their marker down in defense of the Muslim Brotherhood and in the overturning of friendly regimes.

Credit: IMREDIFFMAIL



Libya is an excellent example of a multi-decade diplomatic success story turned lesson for pro-western, Middle-Eastern dictators.

Libya had disarmed and ended its nuclear program and turned in all its nuclear materials. The payback: A bombing of Libya that ultimately resulted in the ouster and murder of its leader, Gaddafi.

Libya and Gaddafi could not be used for Democrat purposes, so he was destroyed. Consequently, leaving behind a weak central government and an environment for terror and chaos to thrive.
The lesson for the region’s dictators: Comply with the west and die.

Later, Libya was used to run weapons through to Syria at Benghazi, enabling the rise of ISIS, but we won’t talk about that…

Tilted Public Perception


Notice that its perfectly fine for his predecessor, President Obama, to order the killings of civilians, and oversee the removal of heads-of-state.
He also overlooked the political murders of hundreds of thousands across the Middle East.
His administration halt investigations into/prosecution of Hezbollah (a terrorist organization) operatives running cocaine and heroin through the United States.
Next, he used the proceeds to purchase weaponry (tacitly funding a terrorist organization by knowingly not halting it, undermining the DEA) because doing so threatened the Iran capitulation, er…nuclear “deal”, pursuing an unconstitutional treaty with that terror state, etc…

That’s all above board.

We won’t even get into the targeting of American citizens via the IRS, via FISA court abuses.
Or the weaponization of our intelligence agencies, and gaslighting an entire nation using non-existent Russian collusion to influence the 2016 election.
We now know this is a cover for Democrats’ collusion with Russians to do the same via a “dossier” of “salacious, unverified” information paid for by the DNC and the Hillary campaign.

Credit: level9news.com

Nor will we delve into the Clinton Foundation’s complete sellout of American technological secrets.

According to the FBI via the Skolkovo project, the Clinton Foundation received large donations immediately after the selling of American uranium to Russian.
Meanwhile, Hillary was Secretary of State and influencing American corporations to participate; or the use of a private e-mail server to conduct classified business.  Seventeen of the twenty-one businesses who participated also left massive contributions to the CF.

Nah. No influence peddling there.

No serial violations of the (re-interpreted on the fly) Espionage Act.

That too is above board. Democrats did it; it has to be!


Cooperate or Destroy


Instead, Democrats will attempt to destroy an emerging alliance between a moderating Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Israel against hardline Iran, Turkey, Syria; using the guise of Saudi officials staying at Trump-branded properties when conducting official business.
Nevermind that the President had passed off control of his business holdings to others.
They will even try to leverage a potential political assassination by another nation to do so.
President Trump must not be allowed to shape foreign policy; his business activities must be criminalized to prevent it.

You see, only Democrats are allowed to wield power.
Democrats use their offices to enrich themselves from American technological secrets and national security assets.
They overlook a terror network destroying the lives of Americans, so as not to threaten a nuclear capitulation to a terror state at war with the United States. 

Nothing will be allowed to get in the way of the Democrat totalitarian gang including:
  • The American people in selecting Trump as their president (we’re enemies of the republic for doing so).
  • A qualified nominee for the Supreme Court
  • Governors lawfully redistricting after years of census results.
  • A growing economy where taxpayers keep the fruits of their labor.
  • Election deadlines or voter eligibility.
  • Laws allowing states to clean their voter rolls.
  • The election system itself (in favor of a national popular vote to destroy our republic for a direct democracy).
  • The Bill of Rights, the separation of powers doctrine, nor the rest of the Constitution.

Congressman Schiff’s promised “investigation” is but a small part of this larger effort.  The executive branch (thus the American people’s choice to run it) could not be co-opted; so it must be destroyed, using other governmental institutions. Take notice as the media promotes and cheerleads all of it, under cover of “press freedom”.

Romanticizing China

Romanticizing Communism

Media Outlets are Promoting Communism

Communism in China
Credit: NYT The Land that Failed to Fail

It was a casual Sunday.   My daughter had another grueling two-hour volleyball practice that I use to catch up on whatever project I’m working on at the moment.

Naturally, a lot of scrolling happens during these practices.  During my snoozefest scrolling sesh, I saw it.

An NYTimes Article is romanticizing “Communist” China. Inappropriately titled, “The Land that Failed to Fail.”

Now, this is the second time in recent months I’ve seen a magazine article romanticizing the concept of Communism.  The last time was Teen Vogue of all places.


A growing discontent for capitalism and a resurgence of Communism or “Democratic Socialism” (as some on the Left like to use as a disguise for Communism) is spreading in the United States.

Let’s focus on this one particular article about the success of Chinese Communism though.  It says,

In the uncertain years after Mao’s death, long before China became an industrial juggernaut, before the Communist Party went on a winning streak that would reshape the world, a group of economics students gathered at a mountain retreat outside Shanghai.

The article goes on to boast the massive growth of China’s economy in the past 40 years as some Communist Christmas Miracle.  This miracle defied all odds and didn’t fail when everyone said it would.

Why is this article idolizing Communism as some socioeconomic beacon of success?

Seriously? Has this writer ever been to China?

Every nation that attempts Communism fails, including China.  The only thing remaining in China that is Communist is the political party that should have but didn’t abandon the name after it failed.

Don’t believe me?  Let’s look at some history and most importantly, some facts.

A Brief History

Communist China
Image Credit: Ron Paul Liberty Report

Mao Zedong defeated the existing Chinese regime in 1949.

Immediately after, he brought true, authentic Communism to the people of China.

Communism is not Love.

Communism is the hammer which we use to crush the enemy. -Mao Zedong

His first order of business was equally distributing all land among the people.

Next, he centralized all means of production under the control of the state.  Agriculture shifted to a system of collective farming.

Landlords and capitalists were suppressed and stripped of all property and wealth.

Mao’s Great Leap Forward was a massive failure that led to famine and death of its citizens.  This failure inevitably led to Mao tightening his grip on the population.  Any critics of his radical ideology were imprisoned or killed.

Political powers grows out of the barrel of a gun. -Mao Zedong

The Communist reign of Mao ultimately led to the death of up to 80 million people and China was only freed of the tyranny in 1976 when he finally died.

Communism did fail in China.  What is left does not even remotely resemble Communism.

Since the NYT author failed to examine the facts, we took the liberty to do it for him.

The Ten Planks of Communism

Ten Planks of Communism

Let’s look at the ten basic tenets of Communism.

  1. Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.

  2. A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.

  3. Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.

  4. Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.

  5. Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.

  6. Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.

  7. Extension of Factories and Instruments of Production Owned by the State, the Bringing Into Cultivation of Waste Lands, and the Improvement of the Soil Generally in Accordance with a Common Plan.

  8. Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.

  9. Combination of Agriculture with Manufacturing Industries; Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between Town and Country by a More Equable Distribution of the Population over the Country.

  10. Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children’s Factory Labor in its Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.

Now Let’s Compare with China

  1. Abolition of private property- Nope.  You can own a home in China.  Granted, you don’t own the land it is on, but real estate is a booming industry in China. By a Marxist definition, the land is not used solely for the public purpose.  In fact, the state issues 70 year leases on land
  2. A Heavy Progressive Income Tax- Again, not even close.  The tax rate for most Chinese is lower than many countries like Japan and the Nederlands.
  3. Abolition of Rights of Inheritance- Wrong again.  Here is the Law of Succession in the Peoples’ Republic of China.
  4. Confiscation of Emigrants and Rebels- Partially correct.  Foreigners can own a home in China as long as they have lived in the country for 12 consecutive months.  Although, I’m not sure why anyone would want to.
  5. Centralization of Credit, Banks, Capital, etc.- 

    Noooooooope.  There are privately owned banks in China.  The government stifles their businesses with regulations, restriction of assets and laws, but they exist.

  6. Centralization of Means of Communication and Transportation- No.  Independent and privately owned transportation and communication exist.  It was previously under State control. However, this was one of the economic reforms implemented in the 80’s and 90’s. It must be stated that the media, the internet and other forms of communication are heavily supervised by the State though.
  7. Production/Means of Production Owned by the State- No. The transition away from SOE (state-owned enterprise) was one of the first economic reforms of the 80’s and 90’s when China was removing the layers of Communism from their economy. In fact, the private sector was responsible for 70% of the economic growth once China was free from Communism.
  8. Equal Liability To Labor- Borderline accurate.  China does command one of the world’s most massive armies. However, in terms of Marxism, China does not meet these requirements any longer.
  9. Combination of Agricultural and Manufacturing Industries; In other words, the elimination of class separation- Definitely not.  There is a pretty significant distinction between wealth and class in China.  The nation of China boasts an impressive 476 BILLIONAIRES. The only country that beats them is the United States.
  10. Free Education- Yes and no.  State-owned and operated are the preferred secondary education.  However, they are incredibly competitive.   Also, there are fees and tuition costs, but China’s student debt is virtually non-existent.

What Remains of Communism in China

Above all, China has maintained a strong and authoritative position over the population.

Recently, China increased their interference in the privacy of their citizens with new technology.  Their new surveillance technology monitors each person using facial recognition.  Citizens are rewarded or penalized based on day-to-day behaviors that include small things such as manners, to others such as smoking.  

Citizens in good standing receive additional privileges, while others not in good standing experience fines and even travel restrictions.

Yikes.  No thank you.

Freedom of speech is not a thing in China, either.

Due process? Well, it’s gotten better over the years, but the Chinese are known for imprisoning its people for virtually anything.

Example: An Author was recently sentenced to ten years in prison for writing about a gay sex scene in a book.

Religious persecution is common in China, and they are also a very nationalistic nation. (Think about their Olympic team.  Zero diversity. ZERO.)

Google is currently under intense scrutiny from its employees for agreeing to work with the Chinese government to spy on and control internet usage for its population.

When you look closely, China has more in common with Fascism than Communism at this point. (Don’t tell Liberals, they’ll lose their minds)

Final Nail in the Coffin of Communism in China

Karl Marx’s utopian vision for society relied on the elimination of the bourgeois.  In his mind, societies that exploited the proletariat were evil and must be abolished.

The exchange of labor for a wage, in his mind, was modern day slavery. To reverse this evil system, he believes the State should distribute land equally and create a nation where no one man has anything more than any other.

Sit down, Lefties. I’m about to burst your bubble.

Currently, in China, their entire economy is driven by and relies upon the proletariat. China’s economy has thrived by creating mass-produced exportable goods at prices lower than any other country in the world.

Unfortunately for the Communist, China has been able to lift more people out of poverty by eliminating Communism and implementing Capitalism.

Furthermore, I challenge any Communist, Socialist or Leftist to prove me wrong.

Until then, do yourself a favor and stop romanticizing Communism in articles that you write on your MacBook Pro from your high rise New York City offices.
