It’s time to make “communist” a slur again

Lauren SouthernRebel Commentator
 

Far left wing radicalism has been on the rise for ages, and yet the mainstream media and culture has been unable to define what it is. The media are almost allergic to the term, and pop culture has totally forgotten its existence: Communism.

We aren't dealing with just the "Left." We are dealing with communists.

The word was overused for so long that it became meaningless, but it's time for a revival of the term — because right now more than ever it can be used to describe the enemy of free speech and the West.

It's time to make communist a slur again.

I speak with Youtuber Roaming Millennial about how modern education has failed to share the horrors of communism with young people, and how misuse of terms can destroy meaning.

Well said John Landry. I have been favouring the Pinko commie word also. That’s what seems to be happening within Antifa, a distinct communist wave of stupidity. I do prefer calling those feminists Pinkos, they seem to thing pink is their colour.

100% agree, it is time to call these nut jobs what they are.

Using the argument that communism has killed millions of people will not resonate with communists as they have made that their agenda. The more humans die due to communism, the happier they’ll be. You inspire communist when you say their leadership kills millions of people. It’s what they want.

Bring back the term “Red commi pinko pigs”.

Ironic how you nitpicked about people choosing Hitler as an example of a fascist and now you’re applying the term communism to people who aren’t communists, or even close. That’s intellectual dishonesty at it’s finest. Also, point to where the left is limiting free speech and destroying Western values? Hint: they aren’t. I would say that what the West defines as Western values, since the Enlightenment period, at least, is progressivism, in the sense of always moving forward logically, advancing science and technology, furthering Ethics, so from Emancipation, to Suffragism, to workers rights, eventually civil rights, LGBTQ rights, an onward, with science and reason dictating policy, a separation of Church and state, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, a free press, economic liberalism, just forward thinking, reasonable, scientific, with strong civil liberties. Now, are you going be able to say that reasonable, scientific thinking, progressive thought on both science and ethics, a dedication to truth and sound reasoning, occurs on this site and sleep at night? Or that it is exhibited, say, by the populist extreme right wing fanaticism that is creeping deep into Western nations exhibits any Enlightenment values? In Europe, and in America authoritarianism is back, this website just hosted a white nationalist, supports Trump and Bannon, and supports La Pen, while being pro life, Islamophobic, conspiratorial, and hateful. This ideas on this site are in complete opposition to reason and critical thinking. It’s pseudo-intellectual garbage. Just cause you can say “logical fallacy” doesn’t mean any of you know what the fuck you’re talking about. An intelligent person listening to your arguments and the others on this site, and reads the comments can tell right away that it’s bullshit and full of wannabe intellectuals. As someone who actually uses my brain and doesn’t just throw around buzzword, you are all fucking stupid, and your bigoted worldview is what is a threat to Enlightenment values and so called Western Values. This site is anti-science, anti-logic, anti-ethics, and basically empirically wrong on everything. Fake ass intellectual poseurs and hypocrites.

I’d rather the new slur be “authoritarian.”

I think Mr Kitchen leaves out a few things, like all the Aid the US sent the Soviet Union and all the lives lost on the Western front, or the vast numbers of communist soldiers gunned down by Soviet political troops for not being aggressive enough. So where are we coming? From the world got rid of the National Socialist maggots and then had to deal with the International Socialist scum. BTW how many times have you made trips to the Fomer Soviet Union and listened to people who lived under the Soviet regime?
commented 2017-02-17 13:41:26 -0500
Folks it was the communists that beat Hitler. It was the communists that freed the Jews. Remember that in that war there were more communist soldiers killed than all other solders on both sides. So where are you coming from ?

3rd wave feminism, PETA or radical evironmentalism is a modern form of communism. Breitbart or the alt-right is a modern form of fascism.

I think the real threat to our democracy is authoritarianism – may it be communism or fascism. When the power begins to flow to fewer & fewer people thats when the problems begin. I put all my faith into this thing called, Democracy.

Great discussion but everyone has missed the point – communism has a new happy face it;s called: Progressiveness, feminism, multiculturalism, social justice, BLM, and sundry other lightly cloaked movements are in fact, pith and substance, communism -statist communism, cultural communism and undisguised bolshevism.

Call a rat a rat.

While I am a supporter of Israel and do believe that the Holocaust should be remembered I am not sure that most Canadians realize that, while denying and trivializing a victims to communism memorial which represents almost 1/4 of the population of Canada, we are building a MASSIVE Holocaust memorial across from the Canadian War Museum. Only 40,000 Jewish Holocaust survivors came to Canada and there are only 400,000 Jews in Canada today. The memorial is in the shape of a Star of David so it does NOT include the additional 7 Million non-Jews killed in the same manner by the Nazi’s. This is Heritage Canada which in my opinion is run by a bunch of socio-communists who are not motivated by a sense of history and memorial but by politics and power. It should be the other way around, the Victims of Communism Memorial should be as MASSIVE to represent the numbers of Canadian immigrants who fled communism and those killed. The Holocaust had nothing to do with Canada at all outside of the 40,000 survivors who were NOT Canadian at that time. Not only is Canada made up of immigrants who suffered under communism and fled communism but Canada, since 1918 supposedly fought communism from Siberia to NATO. When I was in the military I was trained to kill communists. Well with the 1942 dated 30. cal machine guns PE Trudeau gave us in the early 80’s. YES I think there should be a Holocaust memorial but not the incredibly overblown towering monument we now have which I think is even bigger than anything in Israel!!!. It should also be remembered that while many Jews were staunch communists (about 85% of all Soviet agents uncovered in the West were Jews) , just as many opposed it and suffered under communism. When I traveled to the Soviet Union many times in the 80’s I brought hard to find medicine to many Jewish families in Leningrad. They were obviously being persecuted and still are. The memorials should have been built to compliment each other. But in typically idiotic Canadian fashion that is not to be.

It was no surprise that one of Justin Trudeau’s first acts was to pay to have the dedication to the victims of communism moved away from the parliamentary district off the area near the supreme court as it pricks the conscience of those who would rather you not think about the murderous toll of this Godless ideology that allowed it’s adherents to slaughter more people than all the religions combined and in relatively short time frame. Since 1917 an estimated more than 90 million people were killed because of Communism. http://www.thecommentator.com/article/4230/so_how_many_did_communism_kill It also makes Trudeau’s giant smile that much more insidious knowing he has praised the basic dictatorship of China and the recently departed Castro who he described as a great leader.

Ken Joyce, wow.
Who would be surprised. The Rebel needs a Mike Cernovich or Stefan Molyneux.
P.E.T. and spawn are as commie as they come, always have been. The Elizabeth Bentley info is significant indeed. Hard questions would at the very least produce a lot of squirming. That in itself would be telling and drop more leads to follow, potentially.

Check out the platform of the Communist Party of Canada for the 2015 election and note the commonality with the policies and aims of the Alberta NDP and the federal Liberals:
http://communist-party.ca/platform
For example:
- Block new development of the Alberta tar sands, and close these operations within five years…
- Put a moratorium on the exploration and development of shale gas resources.
- Adopt emergency legislation to slash greenhouse gas emissions, and support reparations to countries affected by capitalist-driven climate change.
- Invest heavily to create jobs through renewable energy and conservation programs, and phase out coal-fired plants and terminate reliance on nuclear energy
- Raise the minimum wage to $20/hour
- Restore funding for the CBC
- Scrap the Tories’ income-splitting plan, which primarily benefits the wealthy, and pressures women to stay at home.
- Ban all discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.
- No one is illegal; stop deportations of immigrants and refugees, and reverse cuts to legal aid.

As per this video from Wild Bill for America, although they have deceptively changed their name to “liberals” and “progressives” [cultural Marxists, transforming the culture from within through the long march through the institutions, including the schools, (evolution instead of revolution) as per Marxist theorist Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937)], we need to call these people what they are, “Call Em Communists”:

One other point. I suggest that every lefty read Mein Kampf. Hitler actually does a wonderful job describing socialism and communism. It also makes it very clear that his power would not have existed without the catalyst of communism. It was a race between Hitlers NSDAP and Thalmann’s KPD to see who could topple the Wiemar Republic first. Why was Hitler a totalitarian? Because that was the only way he thought that totalitarian communism could be destroyed. This is because they had infiltrated all of the more moderate parties in the Republic. Most of what you read in history today is a lie. Even go to any dictionary and look up the definition of communism, fascism, totalitarianism etc. the leftists have even fixed the damn dictionary to state that ONLY fascism was totalitarian. This is part of the bigger plot of the left. They are trying to separate the truth that fascism is communism and communism is fascism and both derived from the socialism of Marx and Engels (1848).

You people dont know the half of it and I have been trying to get through to “The Rebel” to tell them they really need to get off their arse and attack this issue. For the last ten years I have been trying to pull together material on top members of the Liberal Party of Canada who were either confirmed or suspected of communist sympathies or were out right soviet moles. This involves archival documents relating to the CPC, LPP, External Affairs, RCMP, CSIS, Ministry of Justice, SIS and SOE, OSS and CIA, CPUSA, CPGB, Communist International, UNRAA, Krivitsky (Ginsberg) Chambers, Gouzenko, Bentley, Robertson, Pickersgill, Pearson, Rae, Trudeau as well as many others. The Rebel talks about modern day transparency not seeming to understand that most of the material above relating to Liberal dealings with communists are completely closed, redacted, destroyed or missing. I am still in the process of accessing material that is 72 YEARS OLD !!!! Most of this material is still CLOSED !!!! This includes material regarding the testimony of soviet agent and defector Elizabeth Bentley in 1945 which suggests that Trudeau was a courier for her spy ring during the war while he was attending Harvard University. This is related to material she stated that came from Pearson while he was with External Affairs in Washington and passed to a Liberal member of the National Film Board also in Washington who handed the material to Bentley’s group. This is just a small fragment of what needs to be uncovered. There is evidence that top members of the Liberal Party actively assisted the Soviets during WW2 and after and that Pearson appointee Trudeau continued this liaison right up until the 80’s. What THE REBEL needs to do is start asking tough questions regarding the closing of this material. It was Trudeau himself, after the RCMP FEATHERBED investigation ( which also investigated ALL the Liberals mentioned above) who closed that material for 20 years in 1979/80. It is STILL NOT AVAILABLE. Interestingly even investigations into missing material at the LAC in Ottawa ARE MISSING. There are obvious things that the Liberals and the Canadian Government in General do not want the Canadian public to see. I have no political power or power to organize like the REBEL and I think they are insane not to pursue this in more detail and to create a DEMAND that this material be released or at least to find out what the Liberals had destroyed. These people were traitors and criminals so Canadian history needs to be adjusted and their names wiped from airports and institutions across this country. As I have stated in several UNANSWERED e-mails to the REBEL, this is NOT speculation, I have the proof. I am just digging for a more complete picture and this also involves Pearson’s and Trudeau’s involvement in the United Nations. If you want the truth to be told about the Liberal Party of Canada, e-mail the REBEL and tell them you read this and agree! Thanks!

Ronald Reagan may very well have single handedly brought down the Soviet Union in ‘89, but Fabian Socialism was already well established in the West by then, through its MO of ’penetration’ , ‘permeation’ and nepotism.
Every Western country has already been ‘converted’ to socialism. The Pearson/Trudeau cabal was responsible for forcing socialism on Canada from the 60’s through the 80’s.
The Constitutional Republic of America has withstood the commie onslaught – perpetrated mostly by traitors to America – better than most, but that gaping wound needs to be healed now!
I have not stopped using ‘communist’, ‘pinko’ and ‘socialist’ as terms of contempt and derision since the end of The Cold War! I have had to add ‘Globalist’ and ‘jihadi’ to that…I’ll be adding ‘trudeau’ as an eponym – if I can figure out how to use it in context…

Historical – In Soviet Russia, they had a Red Army, while the flags of Communist Russia and China are both awash in red. In the west, the term “Red” and “Red scare” were synonymous with the fear of Communism. “Red” was associated with left-wing movements in Europe long before the Russian Revolution. The flags associated with the European revolts in 1848 as well as the flag of the Italian nationalist Garibaldi were red – indeed his troops were called camicie rosse (redshirts). The flag of the Paris Commune of 1871 was also red and the list goes on and on. Interesting that the Liberal Party has always referred to their party as the “Red tent” as well as the “Red Machine”, their policy book “The Red Book”. Funny that the sheeple never caught this little fact and instead focus on the name (Liberal). Their party name is a prime example of an oxymoron, their color is more representative of their true nature:
McGuinty passed a secret law during the G20 giving police more authority, Pierre Trudeau enacted the War Measure Act, and now Junior is bent on controlling free speech (M-103).

Space Moose said, “Leftists are drawn to the promises of equality by communism. Equality is what they live for.”

Yes, that is true. And they do get equality … all equally poor and miserable.

I didn’t learn the term “Bolshevik” in a university. When I went to buy the paper one night, Pierre Trudeau’s photo adorned the front page with the stupid little rose on his lapel. The Czechoslovakian woman who owned the store took my quarter and said “HE BOLSHEVIK” HE BOLSHEVIK" . When your children are starving and you trek across Europe to escape them, you can smell a communist a hundred miles away.
His father was a dirty filthy rat communist and I don’t think anything different of sonny boy Justin.

Ask this to a communist. How come people from communist countries flee to go to democracies, but not the other way around?

Some communist then extolled the virtues of the medical system in Cuba.
