Leftists no longer pretend to be patriots. They boldly declare their disgust for our nation.
A case in point is a recent speech offered by the moonbat governor of New York.
Andrew Cuomo told a crowd of fake feminists that America “was never that great” but can be great when stereotyping women becomes a thing of the past. Leftists commonly define their objectives in vague and relative terms; always pushing the finish line further away; like dangling a carrot on a stick.
“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles.
“We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged, we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution,” he said.
What is blinding Gov. Cuomo?
Marxist theory imagines societal evolution as a struggle in which the weaker but superior proletariat class wars against the stronger but inferior bourgeois class. In time socialism will prevail over capitalism.
The inherent problems with that Marxist dogma are manifold.
First, there is no genuine class struggle in free market economies.
Second, that class struggle has to be imagined, invented, and then inoculated into our minds through various media and educational venues. Marxists, for example, imagine “the 50’s housewife” to be oppressed while the woman driving a garbage truck or working long hours at Walmart is liberated. Oddly, people actually believe it.
Third, socialism actually has prevailed and failed. That was made evident in the Soviet Union and Mao Tse Tung’s China. It continues to be seen in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea and other socialist states. In fact, wherever socialism has prevailed, it has failed.
Fourth, if free market economies were oppressive, we would expect a massive exodus from Western nations. Instead, we see the exact opposite. Countless millions of third-worlders are fleeing the oppression of the socialist states.
America is great because its coupling of innovation and free markets have enhanced the lives of all people everywhere rendering the so-called dialectical materialism of Marxism moot.
Nonetheless, the dated and discredited 19th century Marxism cult marches on in the delusional minds of leftists such as Andrew Cuomo and hordes of Hillary supporters.
The truth is that Americans today live at the very apex of human civilization. Governor Cuomo fails to comprehend that greatness; not because he is blind but because he is blindfolded.
