‘They Still Like Communism’ (2017)

Nikita Khrushchev banging his shoe at the U.N. How quickly we forget.

I remember when Khrushchev threatened America, “Your grandchildren will live under communism.” He must’ve had a subscription to the New York Times.

They Still Like Communism

Two years ago, this alleged newspaper rekindled its long love affair with communism by celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, one of the chief calamities of the 20th century.

And last week an audience of Democrats booed Michael Bloomberg for timidly suggesting, “Communism doesn’t work.”

Have we forgotten how deliriously happy people were when their countries’ communist regimes collapsed, all over the world? There’s still China, North Korea, Cuba, and a few other places. But people rejoiced at the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the sudden death of the Soviet Union.

It wasn’t that long ago. Surely someone on the Times must remember it.

Unless maybe they all get their brains wiped from time to time.

  1. “Unless maybe they all get their brains wiped from time to time.” — Tsk, tsk, Lee, you should know by now that leftists deplore the use of brains, which leads to (shudder) logic, which is a whitesupremacist, heteronormative, phallocentric way of operating. The only korrekt way to operate is through feeeeelings. And narrative, i.e., we write our own reality. Or metanarrative, i.e., we write everyone else’s realities.

  2. Yes, but this time instead of the bourgeoisie and the proletariat being at odds with one another, we have a coalition of oppressed tribal groups all overseen by the democratic socialists – they are sure this time it is going to work like a utopia.
