Staggering Poll Numbers Show What America Is Up Against
By Stefan Stanford In this new study from Gallup which the Drudge Report had linked to on Tuesday, they report that more than 4 in 10 Americans now embrace socialism, with 43% of the respondents saying socialism would be a ‘good thing‘ for America while 51% say it would be a ‘bad thing‘. Now keep those numbers in mind when you read this next point.
According to this May 20th story over at Campus Reform that the Drudge Report had also linked to, 41% of college students recently surveyed believe that ‘hate speech‘ should NOT be protected by the US Constitution, including a majority 53% of college woman surveyed and a majority of black students as well. And when we break down the numbers from this Gallup poll, a very loud and clear warning is sent to an America. As that poll reported, over 51% of America’s younger generation had a very positive view of socialism while only 28% of those over 65 looked at socialism positively. And with our older generations who still remember the dangers of socialism growing older, while the younger generations who’ll eventually be replacing us come into power in the years ahead actually embracing socialism, all of this is also happening at a time when America is going through one of the biggest shifts in demographics in decades. So one can argue there’s never been a more important time than now for America’s older generations to become involved, teaching America’s younger generations what freedom means and what historically socialist countries have brought us, pain, starvation, death and destruction as anybody can see via taking a look at what’s been happening in Venezuela the last several years.
So let’s take a look here at the historical death toll of socialism, the excerpt below comes to us from this story at WND…
In Europe, especially in Germany, hoisting a swastika-emblazoned Nazi flag is a crime. For decades after World War II, people have hunted down and sought punishment for Nazi murderers, who were responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people.
Here’s my question: Why are the horrors of Nazism so well-known and widely condemned but not those of socialism and communism? What goes untaught – and possibly is covered up – is that socialist and communist ideas have produced the greatest evil in mankind’s history. You say, “Williams, what in the world are you talking about? Socialists, communists and their fellow travelers, such as the Wall Street occupiers supported by our president, care about the little guy in his struggle for a fair shake! They’re trying to promote social justice.” Let’s look at some of the history of socialism and communism.
What’s not appreciated is that Nazism is a form of socialism. In fact, the term Nazi stands for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The unspeakable acts of Adolf Hitler’s Nazis pale in comparison with the horrors committed by the communists in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the People’s Republic of China. Between 1917 and 1987, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin and their successors murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 62 million of their own people. Between 1949 and 1987, China’s communists, led by Mao Zedong and his successors, murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 76 million Chinese. The most authoritative tally of history’s most murderous regimes is documented on University of Hawaii professor Rudolph J. Rummel’s website and in his book “Death by Government.” And while more than 4 in 10 Americans think that socialism is ‘the answer‘ to America’s problems, let’s take a look within this section briefly at what’s happening now in Venezuela where socialism served the people of their country so wonderfully, the masses turned to getting their next meals in food lines, garbage dumps, and stray and zoo animals.
Leaving the nation woefully lacking in not only foods and basic goods such as toilet paper but medications and medical services as well, how might America be different under socialism than Venezuela or any of the other socialist nations that were quickly turned into totalitarian hellholes? The fact that many of those pushing for socialism now are ready to impose their views upon the rest of America is telling.
