WATCH: Ronald Reagan telling jokes about communism will make your day

StaffRebel Columnist

With Obama enjoying communist Cuba, it's good to remember that the United States wasn't always so weak. It wasn't always Obama's America.

There was a time when communists weren't treated with respect and Ronald Reagan certainly had his fair share of funny communist jokes to tell.

Luckily, a YouTuber was able to produce a compilation of these jokes.

Love this video.

It’s sad to understand that just in few decades people will forget what utter crap USSR was and will want to create something like that again, perhaps in EU this time.

The generation not understanding problems of socialism and thinking of it as a perfect system of the future is already out there.

Right now what we see in the world is so similar to the beginning of 20 century, it’s somewhat scary.

CLIMATEFALLACY, fully agree with you. In fact it’s worse than censorship because it allows to charge people because somebody “got insulted”. This is actually has some very bad signs of USSR-style totalitarian regime where nobody is safe except for the elite.

He wrote very extensively, the man was a true passionate American populist – the best of the greatest generation. I feel sadness at not having people like him around to remind us how far we have gone off the original plan of liberty under commoner democratic rule.

Notice the common theme in the jokes on Communism, including Glenn Craig’s joke below…

And what is PC (political correctness)? It’s simply censorship.
It’s just found another way to bring it back to suppression of other people’s behavior and ideas.

I predict in a couple years to be PC with be like a racism label.
The truth will out.

Some dude just got charged yesterday in Britain for calling a moslem mealy-mouthed.
Hardly hate speech.

But keep in mind, hate speech is protected by the Charter of Rights, let alone criticism.
Don’t confuse the right to hate or criticize with threats or the incitation of violence.

I have not listened to a single politician in my life that made me laugh because something he said was funny. Until now.

Before now, the only thing that got me to laugh when a politician was speaking was to laugh AT them, for the stupid things they were saying.

Listening to other videos of Ronald Reagan, in particular, the Johnny Carson interview.
There are just simply no heroes like him.
It almost feels like being a fatherless child.

Rebel, you were correct. That was pretty good. But it also causes me to miss a strong leader of the US of A .
