    Useful Idiot is the time honoured phrase, I think.

    Maybe with a couple of degrees and student debt large enough to choke an elephant.

    ( Now think Russian accent ) …But idiot.

    One definition of an idiot is doing the same thing time and time again (e.g. socialism) and expecting a different outcome.

  3. Elle

    Stop filming me, she says. Only because she was too dumb to answer the questions. Brainless leftists! Protest just for the sake of it and for the attention – “look at me”! I looked and I laughed at you.

  4. Dr Fred Lenin

    Children wouldn’t know cheese fron clay ,manipulated by the aparat for their own foul ends usually the first to be purged when the comrades introduce their form of “peoples democracy”,the Bolsheviks did it ,Mao did it. Pol pot did it ,its the only thing they know destroy destroy .

    That’s actually the generally accepted definition of insanity. An idiot can be educated and learn to think and do things differently, but someone that is insane cannot. The Left borders on insanity.

    She just wants free stuff. That’s what these young people think socialism is. Never mind where the stuff comes from in the first place.

    If nobody has any more than anybody else, then nobody has to feel worse than anybody else.

    If nobody can ever take advantage of anybody else, because the State controls everything, then nobody has to worry about making a decision, and everybody will be equally happy with the States outcomes.

    All driven by some deepseated frothing and inexplainable anxiety that they just can’t bear to live with.

    Comrades.

  8. All driven by some deepseated frothing and inexplainable anxiety that they just can’t bear to live with.

    More a desire/belief that government can provide everything and remove anxiety, fear, inadequacy, poverty etc.

    Note the small number of elite that foster this belief.

    Note also that it’s many of the larger elite (academics etc) that populate the Gulags and the like of Socialist regimes, should they happen to survive.

    Spot on John. Yes indeed, they can’t compete, thus they prohibit anyone else from being enterprising and attaining reward for their labors. Socialism regulates everyone to a sameness.

    Except socialism doesn’t work out for them either, they just end up with a political and Social system that they are even more ill equipped at participating in…. and they end up as slaves in the Gulags.

    Which is what the guy was trying to point out to her. All those countries he mentioned to her, were horrifying regimes to live under. All examples to each other. All lying to each other.

  10. The useful idiots like this one all think they can end up at the top of the ant heap as the lord and masters of the poor misbegotten suckers underneath. Except of course that they don’t; instead, they’re consumed along with everyone else by the conflagration that they have lit.

    The Left borders on insanity.

    We don’t hold the insane to be responsible for their actions.

    Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, et. al. were responsible for their actions.

  12. Beachcomber

    The schools she went to and the university she attends have done their work well; with some help from the media.

  13. Catfeesh?

    Everyone else was just doing socialism wrong. It’ll be done right this time and we’ll have utopia.

    Oh yes, it’ll be done right next time and the death toll will make the 100 million murdered in the name of collective socialism over last 100 years since the October revolution look like a teddy bear’s picnic.

  15. when (not if, it’s already a fete accompli), she and her fellow proletariat what they hanker for they will be the first to be stood against the wall by politburo’s enforcer’s when they start bringing out their signs then to express their disapproval at their fairytales not working out the way they where promised. Useful idiots are no longer useful once they have served their purpose

  16. That’s actually the generally accepted definition of insanity. An idiot can be educated and learn to think and do things differently, but someone that is insane cannot. The Left borders on insanity.

    They are a cult. Nothing more nothing less. Cults are never wrong. They reinterpret reality and history (the entire basis of Marxism) and insist they are right and all others wrong.
    Marxism, National Socialism, Fabian Socialism, Jim Jones, Antifa…

    Another prison guard arrested for shagging the inmates. Downing the ducks.

    Oh, that ending is delicious. “You know how it is”. Yeah, privacy, individual rights…

    That’s the real message here, not the “this time it’ll be different” stuff: when pressed, the egalité and fraternité always breaks down. What’s mine is suddenly mine again. “It’s a public space!” “Yeah, but…”

    It’s almost as if that’s an indelible part of human nature or something.

  19. Jannie

    Is this an example of the Russians hacking the election? Interfering with the minds of the socialist youth!
