A Liberal Called Me A Nazi

Name-Calling: The Hallmark of Progressives

Having published over 900 thoughtfully-written articles on this venerable site, I sometimes struggle for original topics. I've addressed just about everything reasonably important, from grilled cheese sandwiches to Tom Cruise movies.

Along with my original publishments I thoughtfully contribute to articles written by other sentient humans and some liberals. Long into the early evening I toil. Composing concise yet cogent comments requires time away from my doctoral dissertation. I don't mind the sacrifice because the Greater Good is served.

Recently I engaged a particularly needy liberal. I'm always prepared to intercede between reality and Progressive thought.

Bernie Sanders' recent popularity causes mass confusion among the poorly informed. Evidently unless history takes place via The Daily Show then it didn't happen. Context is constrained to what can be replayed on NetFlix. Communism failed in real-life but renaming it to Democratic Socialism makes it popular again. When your Democratic front-runner lurches one step ahead of the FBI, a hypocritical pseudo-socialist from New England looks really good.

They keep using that word, but I do not think it means what they think it means

Hoisted by Their Own Private Petards

Verbal spankings aside, I do understand that free speech is a government concept and does not apply here. Authors may elect to delete my comments on their hubs. I am OK with that.

When deleted elsewhere, I am inspired to cough up over 700 words of my own. I'm fizzing over with a swirling vortex of logical thought. My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought, careening through a cosmic vapor of invention1. You're welcome.

The Hypocrisy of Bernie

Bernie Sanders campaigned as an "Independent," which is not a political party. "Independent" is simply a license to to whatever he wants. And he does. We can all agree he's independent of logic and historical significance. Beyond that, he's a far-left Democrat.

The guy yearns for avowed Democrats to pick him as their presidential candidate. He plans to attend so-called debates where he and other mossbacked Dems will promise to make our lives perfect again.

Bernie calls himself a Democratic Socialist, which is a political term for oxymoron. Socialism proscribes redistribution of wealth. Prepending 'Democratic' to Socialist implies that we peons will vote on who gets gigged. I vote for everyone else but me. Like every other candidate in both major parties, Bernie campaigns as if the US Constitution is merely a suggestion. He promises to make us all equal and get the crabgrass out of our yards. I vote for turf fescue.


Hypocrisy Deepens

Bernie Sanders also trundles about the country stewing over Minimum Wages. Given that he lives in the back pocket of Big Union, this is no surprise to anyone above a 12th grade reading level who can turn off MSNBC long enough to think for themselves. Oddly enough, Congressman Sanders pays his interns less than he says we should pay everyone else.

What about the border?

A true socialist would throw open our borders. Everyone would be welcome to slop at the deficit trough. Bernie, on the other hand, advocates keeping people out. His allegiance to Big Union shines through yet again.

Personally, I agree with him on this point. We hold similar viewpoints for different reasons, so that makes me heartless I suppose.

Am I a Nazi?

At the risk of giving any credence whatsoever to this libelous slander, no. I am not a Nazi. Nazis, comprised the National Socialist party. Someone else comes to mind.

Free-thinking humans are blessed with the ability to self-direct. They eschew beseeching government to redistribute wealth to them. They understand that free health care is a myth and giving able-bodied people free governmental stuff only makes society weaker.

Take this handy Democratic Poll.

Hello, nicomp. Your name-calling, Liberal friend also earned the Godwin Award for the day. But you were too polite to point out this fact.

You always make me laugh, no matter the issue. As for Bernie Sanders, well he is a Socialist and now Socialists are Democrats and Democrats are Socialists. The one thing he is not is Hillary. Now that is a good thing, but not good enough to lead this country, unless it is to lead it down the drain!

@Larry Fields : what is the Godwin Award? And yes, I am polite.

@Pop : We need Hill to get nominated. Any Republican will look animated and trustworthy compared to her.

It's kind of sad to see right wingers voting against their own economic interest. But, go ahead, have your fun (while it lasts.)

Hello, nicomp. Sorry about the obscure Godwin allusion. Godwin's Law states:

If any online discussion thread becomes sufficiently long, someone will drag Hitler and the Nazis into the picture. Whoever does that automatically loses the argument. :)

@Larry : A great law. Thanks for chipping in!

Over 900 thoughtful published hubs, nicomp? And you have only been called a troll and a Nazi - that's it? On the other hand, why should I be surprised? Not many of those kind of name-calling folks are able to read! To say nothing of comprehend. You just keep on keeping on and I promise to keep reading.

@DrBJ - I depend on you and your ilk. Libs tend to stay with their own kind because my words can't be assailed.

I'll never understand the name-calling. We get nowhere by spreading the divide. I can hear your views just as easily as I can hear the far left and sleep well each and every night. I applaud your right to free speech, no matter which end of the political spectrum you rest.

@billybuc : I agree. I don't call anyone names. I will use 'uninformed', 'gullible', and other adjectives but no name-calling. I've never referred to anyone as a troll or a Nazi.

I must be too polite. Nobody has ever accused me of being a Nazi.

@Larry Fields : good on you. We need more civility in our civics.

I have no idea, it sounded good before my fingers hit the keys.

It would be interesting to know what of your comments hit the Nazi nerve.

@bradmasterOCcal - it was a compendium of comments, I think. Refer to Godwin's Law.

Interesting, and I have had some long discussions and they never used Naxi.

But I have been banned twice.

So who knows.

@bradmasterOCcal - I've been banned once. http://hubpages.com/politics/Banned-from-HubPages...

And yet they don't seem concerned that these others are not being banned. hp just shuts you down, no explanation, no reason, no warning, and no dialogue, just a computer driven message.

It seems strange that their way of banning doesn't apply to their methods.

I crossed the unspoken line. oops

@bradmasterOCcal: I am happy I got banned. I stopped posting on forums and never went back. There's no money in forums. I was just creating content for Big Hub. It was good content, too.

I agree, even though I don't run ads here.
