50% of U.S. Millennials Say They Would Rather Live in a Socialist or Communist Country than a Capitalist Democracy

DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE ASS ON THE WAY OUT …

According to the latest survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, 50% of US Millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy. Unbelievable. What the hell are the kids today being taught in school? This is what happens when you have a liberal brainwashing agenda in schools to indoctrinate rather than educate. It also goes to show that Millennials are clueless. Really, you would rather live in a country like China, Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea? Maybe you should ask Otto Warmbier how he was treated in North Korea on his visit there? Oh that’s right, you can’t, he is dead as he was basically tortured to death. Does it ever dawn on Millennials that people are willing to risk death escaping Cuba to make it to the United States? Maybe we should ship these uneducated, over privileged your to Venezuela where their economy is in ruins due to socialism. How could a group of American youth be so ignorant? They embrace communism? What? Have these Millennials never seen the joy on Eastern Europeans faces when the Iron Curtain came down?

According to the latest survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a D.C.-based nonprofit, one in two U.S. millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.

What’s more, 22% of them have a favorable view of Karl Marx and a surprising number see Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un as “heroes.”

Really, that’s what the numbers show.

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” said Marion Smith, executive director of the organization. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” said Marion Smith, executive director of the organization. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

But do they even know what it is?

Maybe Millennials can at Least comprehend the video below to get a clue as to the Berlin Wall (Hint: East Germany was Communist side of wall)

The survey, which was conducted by research and data firm YouGov, found that millennials are the least knowledgable generation on the subject, with 71% failing to identify the proper definition of communism.

Smith explained that this “troubling turn” highlights pervasive historical illiteracy across the country and “the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.”

Some thing needs to be done in this country or it is finished.

Venezuela offers Asylum to NSA Leaker Edward Snowden … Nicaragua as Well

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro offered asylum to former U.S. intelligence contractor and NSA leaker Edward Snowden asylum.Now the question is whether Snowden will accept and how he will get there from Russia? Nicaragua has also offered Snowden asylum as well. The Hill reports, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said during a speech in Managua that he could accept the bid “if circumstances permit.”

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro offered asylum to former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden in defiance of Washington, which is demanding his arrest for divulging details of secret U.S. spy programs.

Snowden, 30, is believed to be holed up in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo international airport and has been trying to find a country that would take him since he landed from Hong Kong on June 23.

“In the name of America’s dignity … I have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to Edward Snowden,” Maduro told a military parade marking Venezuela’s independence day.

“He is a young man who has told the truth, in the spirit of rebellion, about the United States spying on the whole world.”

NSA Leaker Edward Snowden to Leaves Hong Kong for Moscow, Russia … Bound for Venezuela via Moscow and Cuba? Iceland? Ecuador?

It appears that Hong Kong thought little of the United States formal request for the extradition of Edward Snowden.

Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, is reported by the Guardian to have left Hong Kong and is on his way to Moscow Russia. According to accounts, Snowden has left on Aeroflot flight to Moscow along with representatives of WikiLeaks. According to the AP, the Hong Kong government said in a statement that Snowden left “on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel.” Talk about having little respect for the United States. Hong Kong just thumbed their nose at the US request for extradition.

The NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has flown out of Hong Kong, where he had been in hiding since identifying himself as the source of revelations on US surveillance programs, despite a US request for his arrest.

The 30-year-old had previously said he would stay in the city and fight for his freedom in the courts. But the Hong Kong government confirmed that he left on Sunday, two days after the US announced it had charged him with espionage, saying documents filed by the US did not fully comply with legal requirements.

It also said it was requesting clarification from Washington on Snowden’s claims that the US had hacked targets in the territory.

Video from Fox & Friends Sunday

The South China Morning Post is reporting that Snowden is bound for Venezuela via Moscow and Cuba.

US whistle-blower Edward Snowden has left Hong Kong and is on a commercial flight to Russia, but Moscow will not be his final destination.

The fugitive whistle-blower boarded the Moscow-bound flight earlier on Sunday and would continue on to another country, possibly Cuba then Venezuela, according to media reports.

The Hong Kong government said in a statement that Snowden had departed “on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel”.

The 30-year-old left from Chep Lap Kok airport on a flight scheduled for 10.55am. He is believed to have boarded Aeroflot Flight SU213, which landed at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport at 5.03pm local time, according to the airport’s website.

Wikileaks statement: Wikileaks is claiming that it has assisted Snowden in securing political asylum.

Mr Edward Snowden, the American whistleblower who exposed evidence of a global surveillance regime conducted by US and UK intelligence agencies, has left Hong Kong legally. He is bound for a democratic nation via a safe route for the purposes of asylum, and is being escorted by diplomats and legal advisors from WikiLeaks.

Mr Snowden requested that WikiLeaks use its legal expertise and experience to secure his safety. Once Mr Snowden arrives at his final destination his request will be formally processed.

Former Spanish Judge Mr Baltasar Garzon, legal director of Wikileaks and lawyer for Julian Assange has made the following statement:

“The WikiLeaks legal team and I are interested in preserving Mr Snowden’s rights and protecting him as a person. What is being done to Mr Snowden and to Mr Julian Assange – for making or facilitating disclosures in the public interest – is an assault against the people”.

UPDATE I: As reported at CNN, Edward Snowden has landed in Moscow.

The global cat-and-mouse hunt for Edward Snowden took a dramatic turn Sunday when the man wanted on U.S. espionage charges fled Hong Kong and reportedly arrived in Russia.

WikiLeaks said in a Twitter post Sunday that Snowden had touched down in Moscow. But the organization, which facilitates the publication of classified information, did not disclose what country would be his final destination.

Venezuela’s Acting President Maduro Urges Barack Obama to Stop Plot by Pentagon & CIA to Kill His Pro-Democracy Opponent Henrique Capriles

Why would the “Socialist” in Chief plot to kill a pro-democratic opponent?

Nicolas Maduro, the acting Venezuela president, is urging President Barack Obama to stop the assassination plot by the Pentagon and CIA to kill Maduro’s pro-Democracy opponent, Henrique Capriles. Madura insinuated that the Pentagon and at the CIAwere behind a plan to assassinate the right-wing presidential candidate to create chaos.” Crazy huh? Doesn’t Maduro understand that Obama is a fellow socialist? Although Obama as a community agitator likes his chaos, he likes his socialism better. As Weasel Zippers states, “That’s no way to treat a fellow comrade.”

Socialism … the bonds that bind

Venezuela’s acting president urged U.S. leader Barack Obama to stop what he called a plot by the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency to kill his opposition rival and trigger a coup before an April 14 election.

Nicolas Maduro said the plan was to blame his opponent’s murder on the OPEC nation’s government and to “fill Venezuelans with hate” as they prepare to go to vote following the death of socialist leader Hugo Chavez.

Maduro first mentioned a plot against his rival, Henrique Capriles, last week, blaming it on former Bush administration officials Roger Noriega and Otto Reich. Both rejected the allegations as untrue, outrageous and defamatory.

“I call on President Obama – Roger Noriega, Otto Reich, officials at the Pentagon and at the CIA are behind a plan to assassinate the right-wing presidential candidate to create chaos,” Maduro said in a TV interview broadcast on Sunday.

Maduro, who is Chavez’s preferred successor, said the purpose of the plot was to set off a coup and that his information came from “a very good source.”
