It’s always fascinating when I talk to a liberal-progressive (socialist), and that individual goes on and on about how she believes that things need to be freeeeeeeeeeeee, yet she’s the one living in a McMansion and driving a Mercedes and carrying a Louis Vuitton purse and sending her kids to private school. It’s always people like that who believe that free sh*t is compassssssionate, yet they themselves just have to have all the things that capitalism gives them, and they’re weirdly unwilling to give up their sh*t but by golly, they want everyone to know that things need to be free.
It’s migraine-inducing, really.
But that’s how socialism works, after all. The true socialists never want to – nor do they have to give anything up. They just put a proverbial gun to people’s heads, demand that they hand over their money, and then have the audacity to blather on and on about how virtuous they are for stealing said money. And then they promptly (and ignorantly) drive away in their luxury cars, while holding their designer purses, to get to their “summer” homes (a la capitalism). They never sacrifice. They never will. That’s someone else’s job, dontchaknow.
Bernie Sanders is one of those people. He RAILS against rich people, yet dude owns three homes. Now why on earth would a guy and his hippie wife need three homes? If he truly believed in his cause – helping the poor – wouldn’t you think he’d live simply and dedicate his life to Actually Helping the poor (Mother Theresa, anyone)? And wouldn’t that first step in helping said poor folks be writing a freaking check out of HIS bank account – and not mine?
Bernie and people like him are either wildly misguided or completely full of crap. These people claim to be benevolent and philanthropic and oh-so-caring, but at the end of the day, they essentially want to steal money from you and me and give it to others so as to appear virtuous. Waaaay more virtuous than you, you mean ol’ conservative. How dare you tithe and be charitable in the way that you choose.
One of progressives’ most hated conservatives right now is Ron Desantis, so I found it extra-interesting (and ironic?) that his net worth is being reported:
Oh look! Desantis hasn’t used the office to enrich himself and make gajillions of dollars (*cough cough….like every freaking person in Washington).
Let the record reflect that SOCIALIST Bernie Sanders is worth $3 million. Ten times more than “mean ol’ conservative’ Ron Desantis. And Ron has one home. Let’s not forget all the homes. (I’m a proud capitalist, and I also don’t own three.)
Years and years of demonization of rich people – this is what the left has engaged in, while lapping up capitalist wealth and acting as is they’re better than everyone else. It’s truly remarkable how they have no idea how much they actually loathe themselves.
Who’s going to tell them?
