Ever wonder what happens at a Democratic Socialists of America convention? According to an August 3rd post by conservative journalist Andy Ngo, it’s this.
I should point out that I can’t corroborate the accuracy of the video’s bizarre audio. It could have been dubbed; you be the judge.
Here we go…
The clip gives us three vignettes of…I don’t even know what to call it. Let’s just take ’em one-by-one.
At the beginning, a girl is heard asserting the following:
“If we’re going to defeat capitalism, we’re going to need a party that will organize working people to fight for the demands that we want and to win socialism. Thank you so much.”
Do any of the people — does even one single person — in the room know the definition of socialism? And of capitalism?
capitalism: An economic system based on a free-market economy in which an individual may own his or her own business.
socialism: An economic system based on monopoly whereby no one can own a business as the government owns all products and means of production.
So here’s her announcement, translated:
“In order for us to keep ourselves from having the freedom to start our own businesses, we’re going to need a party that will organize working people to fight solely against their own interests and accomplish a society in which none of us have recourse against the quality of products and services offered compared to their price. If we work hard, we can assure that we’re never again given a choice as to what we purchase and for how much. The mechanisms of supply and demand will go away, and a select few occupying term-unlimited seats of power will decide what we get and how much will be taken from us in exchange.”
Someone stood in a room full of people and pushed for that.
How is that possible?
Now on to Part 2.
A guy speaks up, asking for everyone to stop triggering him:
“Quick point of privilege. Quick point of personal privilege. Um, guys…I just wanna say, can we please keep the chatter to a minimum? I’m one of the people who’s very prone to sensory overload. There’s a lot of whispering and chatter going on. It’s making it very difficult for me to focus. Please can we just — I know we’re all fresh and ready to go — but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? It’s affecting my ability to focus. Thank you.”
A woman replies, “Thank you, Comrade.”
Comrade — that’d be, quizzically, the same title used in Donald Trump’s Evil Empire — Russia.
As for the overloaded overlord, can his shirt not hold in his spine? Everyone stop what they’re doing — “I’m,” “me,” “overload,” “very difficult,” “I,” “my.” “Thank you.”
I wouldn’t find it difficult to believe he’s got a glass case of participation trophies and 7th place ribbons.
Ready for Part 3?
The moderator asks, “Okay, is there a speaker against name and chapter pronouns?”
She’s interrupted by what sounds like a terribly desperate male voice:
“Point of personal privilege, point of personal privilege. PLEASE DO NOT USE GENDERED LANGUAGE TO ADDRESS EVERYONE.”
She affirms, “Okay.”
What has happened to our world? Where has even low-level ability to cope gone? To what end of the earth have education and comprehension jetted off?
These are young people — our nation’s future — coming together to fight against their own self-interests via what I must believe is the lack of a dictionary, as they seem to shudder over sounds and one-syllable words.
Goose = Cooked.
