Conservative firebrand Liz Wheeler takes no prisoners as she lays waste to the idea “Democratic Socialism” is somehow better than plain-old Socialism. In this must-watch video, she poses five questions intelligent Americans should ask liberals that just might unfreeze their brains. The first one is a doozy.
Wheeler suggests you ask a liberal idiot what the difference between socialist redistribution of wealth and the Democrats’ plan. Socialists seize the means of production, business profits, and hand them over to people who may or may not put in a hard day’s work. Democratic Socialism seizes profits through higher taxes and then hands them over to non-citizens and gives away free stuff. The only difference seems to be that in Democratic Socialism, some people are stupid enough to choose it.
Of course, citizens in the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and Venezuela had the oppressive political model imposed on them by radical liberal insurgents. Most citizens weren’t dumb enough to actually believe this would improve their lives. It didn’t. The difference between Democratic Socialism and plain-old Socialism is a lot like the difference between being murdered or committing suicide. Either way, you end up dead.
If there’s any hope of turning on the light bulb in the heads of radical Democrats and their blind followers, it stems from asking them to think about Socialism. No country has ever benefited from Socialism and millions have been killed in its name. Rather than let them flush the country down the toilet, watch this video and ask Democrat community members all five questions.
