Democrats Showing Their True Colors Now: U Mass Prof Encourages Overthrowing Capitalism

Original post made by That Flushing Sound, Amador Estates, on Oct 23, 2011

Here is a U Mass Professor encouraging the Occupy Wall St. crowd to seize this opportunity to overthrow capitalism in America. This professor actually teaches "Marxian Economics." (Is Capitalism even taught in US High Schools and Colleges anymore?)

I am very very afraid of what the future holds in America for the generation of kids in k-12 with Marxists like this guy...and all throughout the classrooms, and in Blue States like California.

Wow, old Richard Wolff really has you all concerned and riled up, eh? Which part of the 'we want the productive apparatuses in this country to be meaningful, safe, and profitable for the people' most disturbed you?

Recommendation: leave the bathroom where you seem to have spent most of your life, find a library, and read a book or two.

This 'teacher' is a narcissist just like our dear leader. Watch the lemmings flock to hear his profound message about political philosophies that have failed throughout history. Watch the posters here follow these false prophets off the cliff. Let's. See how far you fly.....or fall. Happy landings.........

Wait, where does it say that this professor is a Democrat?

That Flushing Sound,

Even if you could have a Marxist who is a democrat, how could one of them be said to represent all of the others?

Aren't we over sensationalist responses yet. Come on guys, there's a real world out there. The Bachmann mentality aint' cutting it. We've got to get real to make things work. Put down the tea bags and start thinking straight.

Don't worry, dog, Bachman isn't intentionally threatening your manhood, although it must seem that way to you. Are all Marxist sympathizers so effeminate?

Yeah, Bachmann, who is now polling at 6% with Republican voters, is threatening everyone. Dang, I feel like my manhood is at risk.

Hey dog, bringing bottom rung Bachman into this thread is a cheap diversion to take the discussion AWAY FROM THE MARXIST-SOCIALIST TEACHER who is attempting to destroy US, the ENVY of the world.
Sam, yes the teacher is trying to doom this country, buy filling the malleable sponge minds of our youth with lies and systems that have repeatedly failed around the world, for decades ! If you can't defent your guy's merit, you have nothing to offer...keep it relevant.

I'd love to hear some of you know-it-alls wax eloquent on how Marx's analysis of capitalism is wrong. I was taught in school a long time ago that Marx was history's greatest critic of capitalism. My teacher wasn't very critical, so I never learned how Marx's analysis is wrong. Looking for that educational moment....
