Given the misery that it has inflicted on the world, it’s just about impossible to think of socialism as a gift.
Such as this funny t-shirt.
Reminds me of the Churchill quote about the socialism.
Next we an image that mocks socialism, though it’s actually not humorous.
Last but not least, if you follow the news closely, you may have seen that Nike decided that it wouldn’t sell sneakers adorned with the flag designed by Betsy Ross.
Why would they do something like that? Because Colin Kaepernick somehow decided that flag is a racist symbol.
For those who want to understand that crazy decision, I strongly recommend this columnby Jonah Goldberg.
But if you simply want to laugh at Nike, this bit of satire from Babylon Bee is must reading.
Nike has released a new patriotic shoe just in time for the Fourth of July: the Sanders Air Marx, the official, signature shoe of Senator Bernie Sanders. …The shoes pack in all kinds of useful features for people living in a socialist regime, including…ActiveShrink technology helps the shoe shrink right along with you as you wither away from starvation… Breadline Padding Plus helps you stand in breadlines for hours hoping the government is generous enough to give you some food… The shoes are completely edible and can be boiled into soup or gruel in a pinch… The shoes are not available for purchase but will be given from Nike according to their ability to each customer according to their needs. …The Sanders Air Marx is only available in one size, as Sanders remarked: “who needs a choice of shoe size when there are starving children in the world?”
And here’s the new sneaker for the discerning socialist shopper.
It’s the little touches that make this so clever, including a Venezuela flag.
P.S. I can’t imagine any company would ever actually try to sell a sneaker like this. Then again, I never would have imagined that dupes and apologists would be walking around with trendy Che Guevara t-shirts.
P.P.S. Here’s another Churchill quote about socialism.
