Famous Socialists Fox News Doesn't Want You To Know About
Einstein a socialist? Oh my word!
Lies And Half Truths Exposed
As U.S. citizens continue to get inundated with "weapons of mass deception" coming from the conservative wing of the GOP, I decided to clarify a few things and set the record straight, so to speak. Conservative pundits are paid millions by Corporate America to dupe the middle class into voting against their own self interests. When they discuss prominent socialists, they invariably mention Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx, Fidel Castro and of course Che Guevara. The objective is to conjure up images of those "evil, murderous commies," in the minds of the masses who would perhaps feel threatened by such individuals.
Having listened to right-wing propagandists Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Neal Boortz promulgate a multiplicity of half truths and lies, I made it incumbent upon myself to incorporate a few things of my own from a different perspective. I pondered the possibility of mentioning a few distinguished individuals with positive images who were least suspected of being "socialists."
I was personally shocked by what I discovered: Let's see, who are some famous but good socialists? Well there was Albert Einstein (oh know, you mean the most brilliant genius in modern history was a socialist? My word!) Let's see, who else? Oh no, not Ernest Hemingway- still the most beloved and quoted author in U.S. History? Yup! Let's see who else? Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who introduced social security which has kept literally millions of senior citizens from poverty and homelessness, (such an evil thing to do). OK, who else? Lyndon Baines Johnson who had more civil rights legislation for minorities (WHAT?) passed during his administration than even John F. Kennedy. How about "THE MOST TRUSTED MAN IN AMERICA" which would have been the one and only-Walter Kronkite. Oh no, you've got to be kidding.
You might recognize a few more of those evil, liberty hating socialists from the following list: Jesus Christ, The Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Famous Author John Steinbeck who wrote "The Grapes Of Wrath." One of the most prolific American authors in U.S. History- Kurt Vonnegut, "Les Miserable," author Victor Hugo,author of War and Peace- Leo Tolstoy, George Orwell, Nelson Mandela, the "Father Of Science Fiction"-H.G. Wells, Mahatma Gandhi, Ceasar Chavez, Helen Keller, former Prime Minister of Israel Golda Mier, David Ben-Gurion, Sinclair Lewis, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, MSNBC TV Journalist Lawrence O'Donnell and the list goes on and on and on.
Well I suppose the above mentioned socialists pose a very serious threat to America. All of you Fox Noise Network listeners out there, I apologize for distorting your right wing world concept of reality.
