Socialist America

Alg_chavez_obama For all those naysayers who have been furious over Obama being labeled a Marxist-socialist, it seems that Hugo Chavez and this writer for Pravda see things a bit differently.

The IBD article outlines how Chavez began "picking off companies" one by one and reports that Chavez is applauding Obama's actions toward GM. The writer concludes, "Make no mistake: The Venezuelan dictator does not wish us well. He'd like to see all of our institutions crash to the ground and put the U.S. into the same socialist morass he's in. He knows that one act after another on this GM model in the US will end in state socialism, with all the poverty, misery, shortages, noninvestment and lack of freedom that now plague Venezuela. The Obama administration officials involved in the GM takeover may not think their action will harm the system, but they're wrong...."

The article in Pravda, however, is more chilling. It opens with this paragraph: "It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent [sic] into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless, sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people." 

After discussing the dumbing down of the American public and the loss of our faith in God, the Pravda writer says, "The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then [sic] another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe."

We can't say we're not being warned. The question is, what will we "sheeple" do about it?

When discussing the takeover of G.M. with an economic historian I know, I commented that the economic model this follows is ... "National Socialism" he interrupted. I was going to say fascism, myself, but he supplied the other phrase. And he's a liberal who supports Obama generally, though he thinks that the country will never be able to recover from the current administrations deficits, though he traces the roots of the problem back 25 years.

I saw the article in Pravda as well. But remember, it's as much National Enquirer as it is anything else. By the way, in the same article, after mocking Obama as a socialist, here's what that august paper had to say about Americans and American Christians:

"First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their 'right' to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our 'democracy'. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different 'branches and denominations' were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the 'winning' side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the 'winning' side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America."

Truth or Pravda?

When I studied the Russian language in college, the joke back then among *Russians* (during the Cold War, when there was still a USSR) was that the only part of Pravda that had to do with "truth" was the masthead...

P.S.: Boy, do I want one of those Despair.com T-shirts. What a hoot!

When the USSR failed they had something to look forward to.... What do we have to look forward to? I don't like the choices.
