Greetings fellow comrades and toiling intellectuals, how did you May Day celebrations go?
Did your International Workers’ Day celebrations include ? Did you convince shop owners, businessmen, and neo-Kulaks to stop making so much profit and be more generous to the proletariat? Are you concerned enough about the revolution and devoted to the Party like so many in Seattle? arson re-decorating, rioting peaceful protest, and looting the redistribution of property like May Day celebrations in Oakland Many of our revolutionary brothers were courageous enough to take the fight to the enemy and pelt officers of the Seattle Police Department with rocks, sticks, and wrenches thus dealing many stinging blows. Are you dedicated comrade?
A valiant Hero of Socialist Labor, a true People’s Hero liberating property from the bourgeois elements.
Look at the good work our fellow revolutionaries in Seattle are performing. Surely, many jobs will be created from all the smashed windows and other damaged property.
Typical, unwarranted police oppression against our fellow comrades.
There were also many proles picketing for higher wages and change in a much less deliberate fashion. Many of them were decrying that people working at low-level retail and food-service jobs aren’t earning $15/hr while CEO’s (greedy bastards) are earning much larger sums of money. Other members of the proletariat were protesting against capitalism and making progress in general. The individuals who engaged in such activities are moving in the right direction, but are simply not dedicated enough.
Their weak liberalism and soft communism may have to be cured with strong communism. Once the revolution is complete, a purge may be required to find those who are not dedicated enough.
Look, even Jesus demands that a $15/hr minimum wage be instituted!
Minimizing profit generation is a good start, but these comrades are not dedicated enough to the cause.
Over in the Workers’ Paradise of Cuba, Dear Leader President Maduro and the Anointed One President Raul Castro celebrated the Party and revolution.
Many thousands of loyal Party members marched in support of President Castro. Indeed, the May Day rally in Havana was a beautiful sight to behold. The head of the Cuban Workers’ Union vowed to oppose all destabilizing actions and any other activities that would violate Constitutional order. Indeed, any reports of sky-rocketing inflation, high default risks, a lack of basic goods, and oppression by the People’s Government in Venezuela are patently false and made up by Western, capitalist pigs.
Just look at these glorious Communist leaders. Raul Castro is looking especially vigorous.
Look at how happy these proles and future soldiers in the People’s Army are!
For those of you living in oppressive, imperialist, and capitalist countries still, don’t get to despondent. The
glorious will come soon enough. Try not to be too uppity if your family, friends and neighbors aren’t ready to join you in the glorious revolution. For anyone who needs some consolation and advice for those post May Day blues, purge revolution report to the People’s Cube for re-education. Remember comrades, don’t forget to post any comments you may have. As always, ensure that you don’t commit any thoughcrime or act like a Kulak in need of liquidation.
The best banner of them all…
By now many of you have heard about the Communist government that was elected in Greece and the “promise” to do away with bailout problems.
An agreement for a four month extension of debt payments was granted to Greece by the Euro zone and IMF creditors. It’s really amazing that the Greeks were desperate enough to believe that Syriza would be able to fulfil all guarantees made during the election and still keep the welfare state. I don’t believe in the Euro zone but a government that has no money and is asking for massive debts to be forgiven doesn’t really have many options available. Those that voted and believe that Greece can keep its welfare state, keep the Euro, and not pay back any loans could use a reality check.
What do those of you reading this think the odds are of Syriza keeping its promises, avoid a default, or keep the Euro? I personally believe that it’s time for Greeks to give up on the Euro experiment and regain some sovereignty. I suppose that almost thirty years of socialism with the
Panhellenic Socialist Party just wasn’t enough for the Greeks.

The other socialist failure that I’ll mention with this post concerns Venezuela, a country that exports essentially nothing except for oil. Now that those prices have collapsed all of the welfare programs provided by the state, massive expansion of the public sector, price controls, and other factors have caused the Venezuelan economy to enter a tail-spin. The country can’t supply basic goods to its citizens, constitutionally mandated healthcare isn’t provided, the country is near default, and inflation is over 60%. As should be expected, Nicolas Maduro is blaming capitalists, the CIA, and the United States. I suppose that progressives are also OK with the rising oppression of the Venezuelan people, it is being performed by a socialist government after all. If nothing else they will probably not say much about what is happening, unless it’s to blame the Koch brothers or something of that nature. I’ll close this post out with one last picture.
Venezuela has been going downhill for a while now. With excessive inflation, an inability to supply basic goods and services,
a lack of foreign currency, the looming threat of a default, extreme violence against any who dare question the government, and criminalization of any civilian-owned weapons perhaps it’s only a matter of time before Venezuela collapses. With massive oil reserves Venezuela is now importing oil. I guess socialism isn’t working out so well. I wonder how much longer Maduro will stay in power?
