I’m not sure how the Alt-right ended up with the designation “Neo-Nazis.” The left has engineered this designation of the right quite artfully. But “Nazi” stood for National SOCIALIST Workers Party – clearly a “left” designation.
But I digress.
[Source: Hate on the Left, by John C. Goodman]
John C. Goodman is a libertarian economist and founding chief executive of the free-market think tank the National Center for Policy Analysis. I will borrow freely from his article.
We have all seen the video from this past week that showed protestors toppling a statue of a confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina. They proceeded to kick and stomp on the statue, and for their finale spit on it. Quite the show. Who were these “patriots” and protectors of “freedom?”
They were the Workers World Party. They also managed to throw some punches in the violent Charlottesville incident. Did you hear a lot about the Workers World Party (WWP) on CNN? Didn’t think so.
So, who are they? According to Wikipedia the WWP are communists. But they make the typical communist look like a Founder of our great Republic.
The WWP website indicates:
- They admire North Korea and its dictator, Kim Jong Un.
- They even defend Jong Un’s efforts to develop nuclear weapons
- They describe themselves as a party that supports “the struggles of all oppressed peoples”
However, you would be unsuccessful if you tried to identify a nation whose people have been more systematically oppressed than North Korea. A UN report estimates that 18 million North Koreans go to bed hungry every night (there are only 25 million North Koreans), including 1.3 million children under the age of five.
Let’s look at the heroes of the left who helped “the oppressed:” [From the Goodman article]
- Kim Jong Un managed to slip by international sanctions and import $2.09 billion in luxury goods from China between 2012 and 2014, according to The New York Times. The items included Mercedes-Benz S-Class cars and a luxury yacht worth as much as $6 million. More recently, he imported the materials needed to construct a world class ski resort. As far as anyone can tell, the only skier who uses it is Kim Jong Un himself.
- Fidel Castro’s former bodyguard Juan Reinaldo Sánchez says that the communist leader “lived like a king” and “ran country like a cross between medieval overlord and Louis XV.” While ordinary Cubans stood in breadlines and suffered the effects of a declining economy, Castro had his own private yacht and his own private island — a luxurious Caribbean getaway, complete with dolphins and a turtle farm. In Havana, he lived in an immense estate with a rooftop bowling alley, a basketball court and fully-equipped medical center.
- According to Hong Kong-based historian, Frank Dikötter, Chinese communist leader Mao Tse-tung was the greatest mass murderer in world history. “At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death,” he writes. “It was like [the Cambodian communist dictator] Pol Pot’s genocide multiplied 20 times over.” (Of course, Pol Pot was a moronic mass murderer. When he decided to eradicate Cambodia’s “intellectuals” he “reasoned” the intellectuals “read a lot.” If they “read a lot” they must “need glasses.” Therefore, with the rationality of Descartes and Spinoza he murdered everyone wearing glasses – RF.)
- In a book written by Mao’s own personal physician, Dr. Li Zhisui writes: Despite his populist pretensions, Mao lived like a traditional emperor with all the material comforts that China could afford. His physical needs were taken care of by attendants recruited from young, uneducated peasants, who bathed and clothed him and combed his hair …. [He] indulged in young women–sometimes more than one at the same time — and … even had a special bed made for his sexual activity…
- The world’s second greatest mass murderer, Josef Stalin, killed 20 million, many by forced starvation. Stalin himself had no fear of starvation, however. Upon his death, he was worth an estimated $75 million.
- On his death, Mao Tse-tung was worth an estimated $1 billion. Mao’s granddaughter has been named to China’s rich list, with a fortune of nearly £530 million.
- Marxist Hugo Chavez: Venezuela drowned in a sea of corruption involving “some of the most senior figures in Mr. Chávez’s ‘Bolivarian revolution,’” according to The Economist. The country was ranked as the eighth most graft-ridden county in the world. Even places like Haiti and Zimbabwe ranked higher… Yet while ordinary people face food shortages, skyrocketing inflation and abject poverty, Chavez’s daughter, María Gabriela Chávez, has bank accounts in the U.S. and Andorra with assets totaling nearly $4.2 billion – making her the richest individual in the country.
But, according to the Alt-left, “They meant well.”
