The irrelevant ‘North Korea’ red herring and whether Bernie Sanders is a Nazi [Video].

Mention one of the biggest socialist bugaboo’s to the nation’s Left, that the abbreviation for Nationalsozialistische [deutsche Arbeiter-Partei] and invariably one will pipe up with the irrelevant ‘North Korea’ red herring. This is their futile attempt at distracting from a very damaging fact to the Left, that those people were a socialist workers’ party.

Not only does this, place them all in the same ideological realm, but it also eviscerates one of the Left’s biggest historical lies – that a socialist workers’ party is somehow supposed to be on the right. Communists and Socialists like to disavow their ideological brethren as somehow being further ‘right’ than they are and thus ‘Right’ wing. They play this little game with a bit of ideological relativism in the same manner as someone situated in Meeker Park or Boulder could consider that Denver being to the East in a relative sense is thus an ‘Eastern’ city.

In many ways it is sad and unfortunate for the nation’s socialist Left that the best they’ve been able to muster over the years has been that pathetic irrelevancy that fails to prove anything other than Leftist love to cherry pick data to yield the best results for their propaganda efforts. The fact is one can easily cite many a country name that is a true reflection of their national character such as:

The Principality of Andorra, Australia, Barbados, Belize, Canada, The Cook Islands, The State of Eritrea, Hungary, The State of Israel, Japan, The State of Kuwait, Malaysia, The Principality of Monaco, Mongolia, Montenegro, New Zealand, Independent State of Papua New Guinea, The State of Qatar, Romania, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, The Independent State of Samoa, Solomon Islands, The Swiss Confederation, Tokelau, Tuvalu, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,The United States of America.
But that is conveniently ignored by those trying to distract from the fact that the Nazis were a Socialist Workers’ Party.

But this brings us to this video from the fine people at Turning Point USA  asking college students Is Bernie Sanders a Nazi?

In essence, those students didn’t know the meaning of a common abbreviation from history and didn’t realize that they are all part of one big socialist family. But that is to be expected given the woeful state of education these days and that no one on the nation’s socialist Left has been able to come up with a better retort than referring to irrelevant factoids selectively plucked from the ether.

Is the National Socialist Left losing its’ ‘collective’ mind?

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Albert Einstein

The past few days have seen a decided up-tick in odd behaviour of the nation’s socialist Left.

Whitworth Professor: Would Killing GOP Congressman Who Voted For Trumpcare Be ‘Self-Defense’?

Democrats Plan ‘Sustained Protest,’ Warn GOP Lawmakers ‘Be Afraid’

Now, it’s always been the case that since the ideological constructs of their collective faith have repeatedly failed they’ve been verging on insanity. Some of them openly advocate a set of ideological ideas that are at least 500 years old and that fly in the face of basic morality. This is an ideology that has seen the death and oppression of billions of people around the world that could be rightfully labelled evil incarnate no matter what it’s been called – Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Fascism, Maoism, Chávezism, etc. While others repeat the false premise that these ideological ideas haven’t really been tried yet..

Perhaps this is the vestiges of desperation on their part given that they know in their heart of hearts that their long cherished little red books an Che T-shirts have led them astray. Being on an ideological dirt road and facing the inevitable ‘dead end’ sign can have a jarring effect on one’s psyche.

They have invested some much emotional energy and thought into fooling themselves into thinking that their collective ideals can work with the right people in charge that the reality of the situation has pushed them over the brink.

Most sane people can read the writing on the Berlin wall to know that the left’s immoral collectivist ideas were never going to work. They know that collectivism will fail because it very unscientifically ignores basic economics and human nature. And that the only way to get them to work is with the infamous ‘red terror’, secret police and concentration camps.

But our comrades on the nation’s socialist left refuse to acquiesce to logic and reality. Instead of acknowledging that a few hundred years of experimentation and failure of their cherished base ideology have shown it to be non-functional. They instead try to point to small, culturally homogeneous countries that don’t have to pay for their own defense as ‘proof’ their immoral ideology can work…. somehow. This while they turn a blind eye to the 100 million deaths that have resulted from their base ideology.
So as some of the nation’s socialist left become further unhinged, hopefully others in this group will wake up to what their comrades are doing and saying. That perhaps that finally many of those on the left will see this and question their faith in Marx and turn away from it – forever.

Suffice it to say, there will always be those die-hard leftist ideologues who insist they aren’t ideologues who will parrot the slogans of the storied communist past and still think that their collective faith has not failed them. Many of these have a vested interest in trying to further that which has so spectacularly failed, Bernie Sanders comes to mind for some reason. But that small cadre of collectivists can always be shuttered away in their own rubber rooms, to leave the rest of us alone in peace and liberty.

The National Socialist Left Cannot Win.

The Atlantic presented an article ‘Why Can’t the Left Win? And as usual problem with such extensive self examination is that it usually accompanied by copious amount of denial that obscures and thus renders such exercises useless.

But in an effort to be helpful to our comrades on the national socialist left here are but a few suggestions that can put them back on the road to recovery. One area that they could improve their lot is by being honest for once instead of relying on lies and deception in trying to make ‘progress’ with their socialist national agenda. This includes their getting together and having one coherent policy on who they are, so with that purpose in mind, my we suggest the following:

1. Stop pretending that virtually everything the government does is socialist.

Converse with those on the national socialist left for any length of time and one of two diverse assertions will crop up. One is that virtually everything the government does is socialism. The argument is usually couched in the form of the presentation being presented without factual backup (because there is none) followed up with how this ‘socialism’ has been somehow beneficial. Apparently the idea here is that leftist of this mindset thinking that their ideological legerdemain can be slipped into the conversation as factual and the discussion turned to the question of beneficial government operations.

The problem for those on the national socialist left of this mindset is that this idea is contrary to the definition.

The Oxford English dictionary defines the term socialism:

a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. policy or practice based on the political and economic theory of socialism.
(in Marxisttheory) a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of Communism.

2. Stop pretending that the left isn’t socialist and that failed socialist regimes weren’t socialist.

This is the other diverse assertion made by the left and yes, it is in direct contradiction to the first assertion. (A prime example of Leftist ‘diversity’, but we digress…)

Of course, this is an offshoot of the granddaddy of all leftist lies – that ‘socialism has never been tried’. Apparently the left has converted the ‘bug’ that statism requires an authoritarian government into a ‘feature’ as a way of denying that socialist regimes are actually socialist. Well, the fact is that this is how socialism has to work. One cannot ‘redistribute the wealth’ without the authority to do so. And one cannot tamp down the grousing of the people over unfulfilled promises without the authority to do so.

From a scientific standpoint, if one runs an experiment in multiple locations and conditions over a time span of almost 500 years and essentially obtains the same result each time, it can be said that this is how it will work. The past century has seen the same results time after time with the experiment of socialism and totalitarianism has been the result in most cases. That is the reality of socialism, to deny that to be the case would be like trying to deny that a person’s sex is set by their chromosomes.

These two dichotomies are a natural consequence of the left’s base ideology. This unfortunate tendency has experienced such malignant growth to the point that the are those on the nation’s socialist left who don’t know how to properly lie on the subject. They don’t know if they should deny being what they are or go full bore in claiming everything the government does is socialism. Getting rid of the tendency for deception and having coherent and non-contradictory talking point would greatly enhance the Left’s credibility. Rejecting their base ideology would help as well, but they need to take baby steps.

Video: Marxism, Socialism, and Bernie Sanders (Brandon Turner Pt. 2)

Brandon Turner (Political Theory Professor) joins Dave Rubin to discuss Alexis De Tocqueville, Karl Marx, Bernie Sanders, Socialism and more.

This is part of our collaboration with Learn Liberty featuring interviews with classical liberals. Check out Learn Liberty on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/LearnLiberty

The Rubin Report is fan funded: http://www.rubinreport.com/donate

The portion of the interview starting at approximately 9 min is of particular interest dealing with the mythology of socialist nations not being socialist:

From the YouTube transcription:

Brandon Turner: if you look at Venezuela you look at Chavez you look at things like that I mean that’s what socialism looks like.

Dave Rubin: I always see people saying that you can’t look at Venezuela because it doesn’t give you the right example of socialism. The socialists will say that it didn’t work out the way they wanted it to.

Brandon Turner: Yeah I don’t know I mean the 20th century is a pretty long advert.
[..]

Brandon Turner: I think a lot of libertarian 20 century libertarian thought offers good arguments as to why socialism will always look like that so in other words this wasn’t an accident. This is how it’s always going to play out and here are reasons for that so if you look at Mises, if you look at Hayek they make that case and those are really good resources.
