Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) on the House floor last week:
“Every generation of leaders in this institution has faced their own time of testing," she said. "Whether it’s an economic panic, Great Depression, slavery, Jim Crow, Civil War, World War, Cold War. There are times when our country is confronted with a crisis that poses an existential threat to our nation and our way of life and Congress needs to stand up and act. The test of our time is inequality, It’s not too much to say that inequality threatens the continued existence of the middle class in America and even the American Dream itself.”I shall refrain from using barracks language here.
Let's repeat the last sentence:
It’s not too much to say that inequality threatens the continued existence of the middle class in America and even the American Dream itself.And I used to believe that Minnesota Democrats were stupid. If this elected moron had actually given her mouth dropping any thought she would have noticed that "inequality" was a threat to a manifestation of inequality.
What is her problem?
At the founding of our Republic all citizens were held to have Equal Rights under the Rule of Law.
It was recognized that no two persons had identical knowledge nor ability to work. There would always be a difference in the outcome of everyone's productive efforts. This was seen as being natural and therefore was never an issue.
But along come the trust fund brats Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels and their massive fraud, The Communist Manifesto. In their doctrine differences in thought and labor are mentally wiped out. As a result material inequality is deemed to be unnatural and evil. Because material inequality is held to be evil it must be removed by force.
The entire history of Communist rule clearly demonstrates the insanity of the doctrine and those who follow it. Not less than One Hundred Million Dead as a result. The most consistent demonstration of enforced material equality of in Cambodia under the reign of the Khmer Rouge with one third of the people dead as a result.
All of this for an invalid doctrine. Which is to say for nothing at all.
As long as these morons are in power they constitute a clear hazard to human life.
