Misinformation queens

COLLECTIVISTS ARE experts at propaganda and misinformation. So here are some facts for you.

queenLet’s look at the term Fat Cat, which is loved by collectivists. Fat Cat is a snide word for a spectacularly successful person. It is successful people who provide jobs, make the economy run, which spreads the good life and opportunity for all.

Some wealthy people are bad. Some are good. Same goes for the middle class and the poor. Some are good people. Some are real sumbitches. Being bad is not a trait cornered by the successful, those Fat Cats.

And we all want to be wealthy, want to be Fat Cats. It is said that money will not bring happiness, but who among us would not jump at the chance to test that theory? I’d love to be rich, and so would you.

By the way, here are the names of some current and former Fat Cats: Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez and Mao Zedong. Wildly wealthy, left-wing Fat Cats, they differ from capitalist Fat Cats in this way: They do not make economies run or spread the good life and opportunity for all. They do precisely the contrary.

Every nation in the world is run by Fat Cats. Capitalist Fat Cats are preferred for freedom and prosperity.

At times, you see statements like Republicans want to eliminate welfare, Medicare, Social Security, etc. This too is incorrect. What they want to do is restructure these things so they will thrive in the long run. They want welfare to go to those who deserve it, not beach surfers. They want disability to go to those actually disabled.

When collectivists say otherwise, they are just pandering to the ignorant, and the ignorant eat it up.

Welfare systems are flying out of control again. They were reined in a lot during the Clinton Administration. Republicans did most of the reining. Thank Newt Gingrich. But now they are running rampant once more. The percentage of people on the dole is soaring, and that is not a good thing, financially or culturally.

You also see claims that no Republican voted for the Civil Rights Act. No Republican voted for Social Security. Not one! These errors are passed around willy-nilly online, and people believe them in spite of their being false.

More pandering to the uninformed and gullible.

It is common to hear (Barry is fond of saying it) that the Republican House is a hotbed of obstructionism, and that’s why nothing ever gets done in Washington nowadays. This is false. Hundreds of bills have passed the House, and they now sit stonewalled on the desk of Harry Reid, a high-ranking collectivist.

You need not look far to see the erroneous claim that Republicans don’t want to pay women as much as men. Most collectivists believe this. It is more than incorrect. It is silly nonsense. Who would not want his wife, his daughter, his mother to earn as much as men?

There was a sizable gap in the past, but that has mostly closed. Not entirely, however, and the small gap that still exists is due primarily to factors like the occupations women choose and that they often elect to work part-time, etc. It is not due to conservative oppression as collectivists want you to believe.

I wish conservatives would improve their propaganda skills. The lefties are far better at it.

  1. I like this post and also wish conservatives would improve their propaganda skill. However, I believe a large majority of US citizens do not follow the news as I do. Newspaper readership is way down. The average person gets their news from sound bites on TV or the internet. Considering the current left-wing bias in most of these outlets, the conservative voice is not heard by many.

    1. Mike: The Republican Party is pathetic at getting its message out. It’s so bad that one might think it’s done intentionally, though it’s not. They better shape up and fast.

  2. Fat Cats…the 1% who buy elections because without their financial backing their candidates wouldn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell…the Koch Brothers for example…and the reason there may be more folks on the dole is due to the economic collapse of 2008…people using their inflated home equity as ATM’s…the economy may never fully recover…thanks in large part to GWB and his banking cronies…and yes, I am aware the BO’s fixes were inadequate in many respects, but remember that the presidency and the US government are in large part controlled by the Fat Cats as well…no matter who is in office…

  4. Our nation, as well as many others, are run by international corporatocracies. In the U.S. they fund both parties and give us the illusion that they are offering us a choice, like vanilla and strawberry, Bush or Obama. Our last president who thought he was independent was JFK.

  5. It is much easier to be a political fat cat than an entrepreneurial fat cat. The latter requires hard work and capital at risk. The former generally requires a sociopathic mindset. (Hayek said it best: why the worst get on top). I marvel at how Progressives worship the former and deride the latter.

    1. Wesmouch: Stalin, Mao, the Castro boys are good examples of political fat cats. And so is Barry now.

      Progressives indeed. I dodge using that word and Liberal too when referring to the collectivists. In part because they are positive-sounding nouns and adjectives. Also because they are usually incorrect. “Progressives” are not progressive. They are regressive. And Liberal sounds too nice for them. Left-wingers, collectivists, socialists, etc., are better and more correct, I think. Call a spade a spade.

  6. Ah Felipe! You need a fact-checker besides me.

    You write, No Republican voted for Social Security. Not one! These errors are passed around willy-nilly online, and people believe them in spite of their being false.

    More pandering to the uninformed and gullible.

    Unfortunately, that’s wrong.

    According to the Social Security Administration website, which can be found here: http://www.ssa.gov/history/tally.html, MANY Republicans voted for the Social Security Act of 1935. Of the 432 members of Congress at the time, 81 Republicans out of 102 (about 80% of Republicans) voted in favor of the act. In the Senate, 16 out of 25 Republicans, or 64% of Republicans voted in favor of the Social Security Act. So not only is it patently wrong to say that no Republicans voted for Social Security, but in fact AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of them DID vote for it.

    As for Republicans being so beneficent to the “truly needy,” I’d offer this comment. Both Social Security and Medicare need to have their eligibility ages raised to reflect the increase in longevity since 1935. Failure to do so will result in the bankruptcy of both systems. But have any Republicans proposed doing so? No, of course not. Instead, they want to cut food stamps,(Food Stamps!!!!) because Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries tend to vote Republican versus food stamp recipients (if they vote at all) likely tend to vote Democrat. Now, in fairness, neither have the Democrats proposed any reforms of Social Security nor Medicare. But those reforms will have to come, and if everyone could work together, they might even stave off a fiscal crisis.

    1. P.S. It’s also worth keeping in mind that what it meant to be a Republican in 1935 is a VERY different thing than what it means today.

    2. Kim: You need to read my post a little slower. I was not saying that no Republican voted for Social Security. I was saying just the opposite.

      And many Republicans do indeed want to raise the age of SS and include means testing, etc. Paul Ryan for one. It’s the Democrats who do not. Any Republican mention of tinkering with/improving SS and Medicare to make it viable over the long run is immediately turned around and interpreted by Democrats as the GOP wanting to eliminate the programs. As for food stamps and other elements of the welfare systems, they are flagrantly abused. Many people get food stamps who should not. Many people get disability payments when they are not disabled.
