Do you ever dream of sending American Communists to live in the pest holes they advocate for others? How does one agitate for Bolshevism for others but remain in the decadent United States? This is part of my Chicken Communist response to apologists for Chavez.
Americans were dumb and desperate enough to believe the empty words of Communists aided by the corrupt NYT reports of Duranty to emigrate to Russia in the 30s. The story does not end well for most. Unlike lab rats, communists do not learn from their errors they merely repeat it again and again.
One should only read the book the Forsaken with a sicker alert. The USA would be a better place if Communists like Renegade Spleen, Graemeful Dead and Troutsky departed.They could live a full life under Chavez. The Duck is not as stupid as the previously mentioned examples and he already lives in the Peoples Republic of MA.
The book describes the desperation of the Great Depression. In such times people do
tend to latch onto false hopes. Not all were innocent idealists as the book implies, but being out of work really does cause many to make poor judgements.
