HOLLYWOOD, FL – Interestingly, Democratic Socialists in American government seem rather comfortable with promoting the overthrow of free society, regardless of federal law that prohibits such things as insurrection. Rashida Tlaib, not content merely to openly support Hamas, now openly supports homegrown Socialist theft of private wealth, saying, That’s what we do.We do? To whom could she be referring?

According to an article by Douglas Ernst, published by The Washington Times on July 23rd, Tlaib says the rich have not earned their wealth, and “need to have it snatched via her bill.” (the Boost Act). That article quotes Tlaib as saying,

“That’s what we do with our public dollars…We give it back to the people — the people that earned it.”

Public dollars? Tlaib is equating private wealth with public dollars? Apparently. Inexplicably…unless the explanation is that she is as deranged as Karl Marx, Mao, Castro, Lenin, and Bernie Sanders.

The wealthy in America already pay most of the tax revenues. But that seems not to be sufficient for Congressional Representative Tlaib, who has determined that the wealthy have not earned their wealth, that it should be taken from them, therefore, and redistributed to the less fortunate who, presumably, or allegedly, are “the people that earned it.”

Tlaib appears to have made some intellectual somersaults in order to be able to arrive at a set of questionable conclusions. Could she actually explain, in a way that a child could understand, by what means the people had earned the wealth to which she refers? And could she also explain how she was able to compile the evidence in support of her theory that the rich did not earn their wealth? It seems doubtful that she could do either.

By promoting a typically Communist/Socialist style of theft of private property, Tlaib is engaging in unlawful promotion of Communism, which is unlawful per both federal and state law.

Tlaib is also violating the oath of office, as she is failing to support the Constitution, made clear by her promotion of an ideology/political system that is outlawed in America due to its having the “object or purpose…to overthrow the Government of the United States,” per Title 50 U.S. Code §842.

According to federal law, found at Title 50 U.S. Code §842, the Communist Party is illegal. The text of that subsection reads as follows:

“The Communist Party of the United States, or any successors of such party regardless of the assumed name, whose object or purpose is to overthrow the Government of the United States, or the government of any State, Territory, District, or possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein by force and violence, are not entitled to any of the rights, privileges, and immunities attendant upon legal bodies created under the jurisdiction of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof; and whatever rights, privileges, and immunities which have heretofore been granted to said party or any subsidiary organization by reason of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof, are terminated: Provided, however, That nothing in this section shall be construed as amending the Internal Security Act of 1950, as amended [50 U.S.C. 781 et seq.]”

Tlaib is also exceeding the lawful limits of power delegated to federal legislators, as she is not authorized by law either to promote Communism or to create legislation the aim of which is to steal private property. Basically, she is committing rebellion, as defined by 18 U.S. Code §2383.

Just as an interesting bit of information, according to Chapter 876 of Florida Statutes, practice or promotion of Communism are also felonies, per state law, as is belonging to a Communist organization. But Tlaib is not in Florida, something for which the people of Florida should be grateful.

Tlaib is a hot mess. There are other crimes she is committing, but let the reader digest these things for now.

According to Lenin, Communism is the goal of Socialism. Socialism exists to drag society toward Communism, without the need for bloody revolution, but with the same end result. Some of the objectives of Communism are to abolish private property, to have the means of production owned by the state, or “in common,” and to abolish the wealthy class.

Certain sophisticated academics might argue that the above description is overly simplistic, or perhaps inaccurate. But let them argue the point with Lenin, as in practice, Communists seek the overthrow of free societies, impose totalitarian rule, and destroy production. Almost the only things they produce are human suffering and degradation, poverty, and death.

It may be argued that “Socialism” is an expression practically interchangeable with “Communism.” The Castro regime certainly use it that way, for whose proponents the popular chant “Socialismo o muerte!” (“Socialism or death!”) is no empty boast.

As in other countries that fell under the yoke of totalitarian revolutionary megalomaniacs, most wealthy Cubans either fled the island or were dispatched by firing squad once Castro’s guerrilla forces defeated Batista’s government troops at the close of 1958. They fell by the thousands. Socialism or Communism? No one stopped to argue about definitions.

The promise made by Fidel was that all Cubans would be equal, that there would no longer be haves and have nots. He did almost keep that promise, since by the time he finished ravishing Cuban society, all had become have nots, except for a few score of his closest supporters.

And that brings us to 21st Century America, where DNC Chairman Tom Perez recently said that Socialists are the future of the Democrat Party. But isn’t Communism the goal of Socialism? So said Lenin. And isn’t Communism illegal? So says the Federal Code.
