The Morning Rant

So, it looks like maybe Bernie is going to be able to pull in enough votes so that he'll be beyond the margin of cheat. And the DNC will not be able to sleaze in enough double-secret Transylvanian super duper delegates to swindle him out of his victory.

And this is a good thing.

Not only because it guarantees an all-but-certain loss of catastrophic proportions for the Democrats, but because finally, *finally*, a national conversation about the horrors of socialism and communism, the one we should've had decades ago, is going to be engaged. No more are the rat bastard commies going to be able to hide behind euphemisms, evasions and elisions. No more will they be able to hide out in the motte of equality and instead will be forced to defend the twin baileys of gulags and genocide.

When you've got their own allies looking askance at them, I'm talking about guys like Chris Matthews saying well, I don't know if socialism is all that great as Bernie thinks, that's problem for them.

They think that communism is wonderful because of literacy rates, or "free healthcare", or whatever. OK, good, now let's do the one thing we haven't done, let's get out our microscopes and take a real close look at Cuba and China and Venezuela and find out just what it took to produce these accompishments, and also examine whether statistics published by rat bastard commie countries are reliable, and if they're lying, why are they lying?

And let's see how much longer they'll be able to judge communism by intentions but capitalists by results.

Yes, let's have a town hall meeting about this. Let Bernie and AOC and all of the other unrepentent commies defend the commie regimes and explain to America why we should adopt their policies, and have it simculcast live on CNN and MSNBC. In other words, let's have this conversation *in public* so everyone can hear, everyone can see the Democrats defend the indefensible, or see them scampering for the tall grass when the more unsavory aspects of these regimes are examined in close detail. Let them then pretend that they don't know anything about this, or, that's not real socialism, and deny that this is what they've been advocating for decades.

The Democratic Party has been playing footsie with socialism and communism and trying to pass it off as "fairness" and "justice" for decades. So it's about time that all of the masks and facades will finally be stripped off.

Me, I'm looking forward to it. And I'd like to thank Donald Trump for this, because he is the onw who has made it all possible.

Monday's celebs: Chelah Horsdal has been in a ton of stuff I've seen, like a couple of episodes of the the Battlestar Galactica reboot and Hell on Wheels. But I just don't remember her. However, 'Helen Smith', her character in Man in the High Castle I will never forget, and I hope she will get an award for it. She had a small role in X-Men: The Last Stand a movie that also featured James Marsden.
