A comment on this thread is that certain posters do not know the difference between Marxist socialism and democratic socialism.
Just more proof of their lack of understanding. ;-)

It looks very much so, but then it could just be ..........

[edit] Maybe the thread title should be changed to "Democratic Socialism" just to get some of these idiots anyway from associating/talking/thinking about Communism which they just keep coming back to and harping on in the end.

Pretty sad your false equivalency, surely you don't believe what you are posting.

Think the meme should've said "History shows" Not "I've seen".
For you to have seen it, you must be aged 80 - 95 as most of the older ones are no longer with us.

Message 1981909 - Posted: 23 Feb 2019, 21:10:38 UTC - in response to Message 1981877.  

In January 2013, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) director Abraham Foxman said in a press release: "The idea that supporters of gun control are doing something akin to what Hitler's Germany did to strip citizens of guns in the run-up to the Second World War is historically inaccurate and offensive, especially to Holocaust survivors and their families." Later that year, Jewish groups and Jersey City, New Jersey, mayor Steven Fulop criticized the NRA for comparing gun control supporters to Nazi Germany. The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ released a statement saying: "Access to guns and the systematic murder of six million Jews have no basis for comparison in the United States or in New Jersey. The Holocaust has no place in this discussion and it is offensive to link this tragedy to such a debate."

In October 2015, in response to comments made by Ben Carson, history professor Alan E. Steinweis wrote in a New York Times piece:

"The Jews of Germany constituted less than 1 percent of the country's population. It is preposterous to argue that the possession of firearms would have enabled them to mount resistance against a systematic program of persecution implemented by a modern bureaucracy, enforced by a well-armed police state, and either supported or tolerated by the majority of the German population. Mr. Carson's suggestion that ordinary Germans, had they had guns, would have risked their lives in armed resistance against the regime simply does not comport with the regrettable historical reality of a regime that was quite popular at home. Inside Germany, only the army possessed the physical force necessary for defying or overthrowing the Nazis, but the generals had thrown in their lot with Hitler early on."

The view that had Jews in Germany been armed they could have stopped the Holocaust not only has little support among legal scholars and historians, it also has little support among human rights activists like Richard Lutz who wrote: "It is farcical for gun rights advocates to assert that Jewish civilians could have stopped the Holocaust if only they had ready access to firearms as they only constituted a tiny disorganized minority in areas under Nazi control, though some able-bodied Jews would undoubtedly have been able to put up more resistance as in the case of the Bielski partisans."

I find it incredible and somewhat distasteful that someone who has supported a more right wing America should use that image.

That is what happens when the far right get into power.

Gee Bernie, perhaps you would prefer images that depict the true face of Socialism TODAY not the facts of history.........

......like this one from Venezeula.........


....or perhaps one from France......


....I can't understand how a system that everyone obviously adores can have this many unhappy customers............could it be they regret buying 'the pig in lipstick'? Or regret believing the lies they were told that allowed the forging of the eternally indentured servitude they now 'enjoy'?

Tear gas appears to be the Sacrament administered to the Socialist masses.......

Venezuela is a dictatorship. If you don't vote for the "correct" candidate, stuff happens.

P.S. Doesn't the term Banana Republic ring any bells?
