About that failed socialist utopia

July 30, 2018

This is a must-read article for those who think that talking a lot about your leftist opinions makes you qualified for an important executive position.  It’s by a “social justice attorney” who worked for the City of New York.  She didn’t like Mayor Mike Bloomberg on philosophical grounds (not far left enough for her, I guess), but was pleasantly surprised at how efficient and effective he was at running the city and dealing with problems such as homelessness.  You see, he was a businessman and actually knew how to manage people and run things (sound familiar?)

But then came the far-left Mayor Bill DeBlasio (whom she admits she voted for.)  The well-oiled system Bloomberg built quickly fell to pieces under the weight of mismanagement, arrogance, corrupt and greedy political appointees, poor communications, pointless and burdensome new rules and regulations, massive fraud, lack of oversight and outright incompetence.  Homelessness increased even as the budget to fight it doubled.  Trying to point out the problems got her fired – while she was on family leave (liberal compassion, ladies and gentlemen!) 

 

Read it all, but here’s the moral: “I was shocked to discover that I actually preferred Michael Bloomberg’s very corporate City Hall to Bill de Blasio’s failed socialist utopia. Who wouldn’t?”

I have no idea, but New Yorkers just reelected de Blasio in a landslide (ironically, if New York suffered a real landslide, he'd be totally unprepared to deal with it), and now they’re poised to send a wet-behind-the-ears socialist utopian to DC to fight Trump’s successes at lowering taxes, creating jobs and more than doubling GDP growth.  I guess some people must really like failure and incompetence. I just wish they’d quit voting to inflict it on the rest of us.

    Governor, everyone can see the problem and discuss it to no end. Communism is a hybrid form of socialism. The many suffer for the benefit of the few. These HISTORY PROBLEMS have been going on in our schools, from the local level all the way through our university system. Most younger people I talk to know nothing of the Bulshieveck revolution, they think WWl was an aggression against peaceful people trying to live their own way of life, WWll we were the aggressors, the Korean war and Vietnam were wars we started to force our way of life on different people's around the world.
    If we are to change the conversation on socialism we must start at the school's. The indoctrination process must stop. I served in the army from 70 to 74. While in Germany we pulled border patrol at Granfenfer on the Czechoslovakia border. We witnessed first hand the brutality of communism and could do nothing. Education on the facts of history, not some professors percieved views of right and wrong, only after accurate teaching of history we this country begin to quiet these socialists tendencies

    Socialism actually took root around 1900 under the name of Progressivism because the Liberal Label was becoming unpopular? True or Not Academia became INFECTED about that time period and thus 90+% of Professors Identify as Progressive which IMHO is just code for Socialist.

    Thank you. Great article. I read you twitter posts too and retweet them and like them. My family, including in-laws are a fan, especially Sarah's. Thank you both for your great support to our President Donald Trump. You add to his needed strength. It is unthinkable if you guys are not around.

    I thank God that we have a great President. America has suffered enough during the past presidents who are money hungry. Just watching Fox News and hearing all bad stuff Democrats and Fake News Media and show anchors try to destroy America by attacking Pres. Trump, every minute of the day, day after day, is so frustrating. I don't know if any of these people have any conscience. I always wonder if they don't have any daughters, sons, husbands, mother or father who will tell them they are doing something really, really bad and wicked. I want all of them to go to jail for their abuses. What they are doing is an attack to me personally, also my family. I am sure I am not the only one feeling that way.

    I ask God to get rid of them so we can live in peace and harmony in this great country. But... unfortunately, it is in the Bible... that people will be so wicked in these last days. Everything that Jesus said of what's going to happen is now happening.

    Great work Gov. Huckabee. God bless!

    Mike,

    Excellent article. I love your newsletters. You are an American treasure! I have always wondered why the Left is so enamored with Socialism. Don't they know (or do they ignore) the facts? Socialism in just the past century imprisoned, starved or outright murdered nearly 100 million people!!! Be it Stalin's Russia, Mao's China, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Castro's Cuba, or the Kims' North Korea, Socialism has only lead to deep grief, horrific living conditions, and, of course, death. Now we have one of the Left's darlings, Venezuela, spiraling in to chaos and death right before our very eyes. Well, it would be before right our eyes if the unethical, immoral, corrupt and criminal mainstream media cabal would cover it.
    But, back to my original point. Why does the Left embrace Socialism? Are the just so arrogant that they think they can do it right where so many others have failed? Assuming there is a right way to do it, which there isn't. Does the American Left think they know better than the Western Europeans they so adore? The same Western Europeans who are now suffering the terrible consequences of their experiment with Socialism.

    I would love to hear from you on this and so many other important discussions.

    Tim

    Please pay an airplane ticket for Alexia to go to CARACAS to go shopping for food in the supermarkets just for one month, and then to try to get attention in a public hospital.
    She will get acquainted with real Socialism.

    A few days ago Stansbury published an article predicting that Rep. Harris would be the Democratic nominee in 2020 running on an American Jubilee, free college, and a guaranteed income for everyone and that she would win because there are more Millenials than there were Baby Boomers. The premise is that the Millenials would all vote for the free stuff; however, I can't believe that a majority of them would be that missled - your thoughts?
