RON SCHALOW: The Republican Big Lie For 2019 Is Socialism

They don’t know the meaning of socialism and they don’t care what it means. Furthermore, they don’t want to learn the truth and they’ll label any Democrat they target with the American swear word, which will probably be the whole party.

This isn’t the social media clods tossing around the socialist, communist and Marxist words to troll the libs.

This a deceitful strategy that runs through the party of a criminal confidence man, who has been smelling the hairspray too long. There will be a socialist under everyone’s bed and dozens in every library learning what scientists have found and they think we should vote on the results.

  • “I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car, of taking away your airplane rights, of ‘let’s hop a train to California,’ of you’re not allowed to own cows anymore!” — Donald Trump

None of that is true.

  • “President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Jr., told young conservatives on Monday ‘to keep up that fight, bring it to your schools. You don’t have to be indoctrinated by these loser teachers that are trying to sell you on socialism from birth.'” — Washington Post

None of that is true, either, and he’s supposed to be the smarter of the two grown Trump boys. He was really sleazy, to make up for the shortage of intellect, though.

DJ even managed to make every teacher the enemy and a target of the Trump base at the same time.

Rob Port, far-right Forum blogger and typist for the Rick Becker’s Bastiat Caucus, has already jumped the shark by tying Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Pol Pot. Uh, huh. That Pol Pot. And Rob is Ludwig von Mises. The AOC PP straight line sums up his overripe anti-Democrat screed.

AOC, after six weeks in Congress, is already making the little Libertarians sweaty.

Jake Blum, the backbencher Republican representative, is in charge of sucking up to Trump with North Dakota GOP letters of support for Donnie’s fence and fetching coffee. I don’t know who he is supposed to be smarter than. Anyway, a recent Blum Facebook post tells us where the state party is willing to go. And it’s low:

“District 42 Dems say ‘bravo!’ to ‘A new light shines in the political heavens. Her name is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.’ She has called for an end to air travel.”

“As representative for District 42, which includes UND, I find it disturbing and extremely unfortunate that local Dems would take this position despite our University boasting the preeminent aviation program in the nation. Our students need to know. We will still have their back.”

He added, “Today the North Dakota Democratic-NPL party here in District 42 openly called for socialism to be implemented in America. We must stand and reject this failed ideology which has led to misery and poverty for millions.”

None of Jake’s words are true, either.

Blum’s news was fake.

“One popular Facebook post spread the claim that “Sandy Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘NEW GREEN DEAL’ Calls For End To Air Travel & To Build Trains Over The Oceans,” referring to the New York Democrat by her high school nickname.

  • “But the nonbinding House resolution — which recognizes “the duty of the federal government to create a Green New Deal” — does not call for ending air travel or building rail lines over any ocean. A companion resolution was also introduced in the Senate.” — FactCheck.org

Explaining the difference between Democratic-Socialism and pure socialism is futile. Explain it to a golden retriever. You’ll get the same look.

Sen. Kevin Cramer and Congressman Kelly Armstrong will follow Trump’s lead.

    My golden retriever is smarter than you give him credit for.

    I was up at the State Fair in Minot in 2014 manning the booth for old friend George Sinner’s congressional campaign.

    The number and regularity of guys – always guys – who stopped to get in my face about my being a “socialist” was astounding.

    The soil is already well fertilized by the RWNM to have a confrontative 2020.
