Arrogant Young Socialist Explains Why Socialism Must Replace Capitalism

A very arrogant 24-year old socialist and youtube sensation, Darletta Scruggs, told Neil Cavuto Thursday that capitalism can’t provide people with a free college education and other freebies. She leveled some reasonable complaints but erroneously attributed them to capitalism, not crony capitalism. She thinks capitalism is “illegitimate.”

 

Can you imagine how worthless college would be if it were free? College would be one big keg party and every idiot would attend.

Scruggs is the organizer of the Million Student March. They all want us to pay for them to go to college. Look at the idiots in the video below and tell me why I should “invest” in them.

Darletta Scruggs, a Bernie supporter of course, hangs with the likes of Seattle’s city council socialist/communist Kshama Sawant.

She consistently blames capitalism when it’s crony capitalism she has a problem with. She thinks that taxing the 264 billionaires in the United States will pay for free college for all among other freebies.

What is really hard to understand about this interview is Neil Cavuto saying she was making good points when she was blowing smoke up her blankety blank. He did try to explain that socialism has worked nowhere in the world but pretty much let her hog the conversation as he agreed with her complaints.

Shape up Neil!

It’s very hard to listen to this woman. I don’t know how you have a conversation with someone who never shuts up.

  1. She had all the answers, until Neil asked her serious questions requiring, real life, fact based solutions. Then she just began spewing the same socialist slogans that have led to the killing and enslaving millions of people. Anybody know what this “young mother” does for a living? Does she have a career?

  2. She is probably 1st. year under graduate student who thinks she know’s it all how the economy of this Nation works.
    She need a lesson on history and ask what you can do for our country and not what your country can do for you ( JFK)
    in all the free entilement. Our tax payers are not willing to support you, find a Job.

  3. “There are a lot of arguments about whether communism, socialism, and liberalism are the same thing. What shouldn’t be arguable is that they’re all closely related branches of the same tree. If you don’t want to live in a house made out of Aleppo Pine, you probably won’t like a Coulter Pine or Eastern White Pine house either. However, since socialism has failed so often, socialists of every stripe bend over backwards to disassociate themselves from the many other disasters created by their ideology. Still, a pine by any other name is still a pine.
    Socialism is particularly dangerous because it’s so perfectly suited for the modern era. It’s the ultimate “miracle” product: it’s “nice,” it’s “fair,” it’ll make you feel good about yourself, it’ll “help” people who “deserve it” by taking things away from people who “have so much” they’ll barely miss it. It sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But, like most products with sleazy salesmen and hidden track records, the promises socialism makes are all a mirage. Since our schools do a terrible job of teaching history and economics these days, it’s our job to explain how socialism slowly, insidiously eats away at the core of a society.

    1) It kills economic growth: Strong economic growth is what produces jobs, tax revenue and a better standard of living for everyone, including the poor and middle class. That’s what John F. Kennedy was driving at when he said, “A rising tide (in the economy) lifts all boats.” Socialism strangles economic growth in the crib by penalizing success and rewarding failure. When you loot the successful people in a society to give it to the less successful, you quite naturally reduce the number of successful people and encourage more people to fail. This leads to a never-ending cycle. The more people in need there are, the more the successful must be penalized to pay for them. The more the successful are penalized, the fewer successful people there are. This causes wealth to concentrate in fewer hands, the economy slows down, and even more people need help. It goes on and on until you get a slow economy that can’t produce enough tax revenue to sustain itself. That’s exactly what killed the Soviet Union, it’s killing Greece right now and sadly, the United States and most of Western Europe is on exactly the same path.

    2) It stifles free speech: Why is there ridiculous government propaganda in nations like North Korea? Why are most schools, papers, and colleges run by liberals in the United States? Why do liberals often try to disrupt conservative speakers on college campuses? Why are there such extreme speech codes in Canada that it practically makes some conservative arguments illegal? Why does speaking out against the government risk imprisonment in China and the old Soviet Union? Because socialism requires protection, propaganda, intimidation, and darkness to survive. Socialism can’t survive honest, informed debate about its merits among people who are free to choose or reject it because it would not survive the conversation. As Reagan said, “How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

    3) It leads to an increasingly tyrannical government: Freedom and socialism go together like oil and water. The more socialism you have, the less freedom you will have because socialism can’t survive if people are free to choose whether they want socialism or not. People who are free to say what they want will criticize socialism’s many failures. Areas that aren’t tightly controlled will move towards the free exchange of ideas and goods, not socialism. So, socialism requires a massive bureaucracy that almost inevitably grows. As government grows, it inevitably becomes more centralized, more distant from the people and ultimately more menacing.

    4) It creates strife and division: Socialism is all about turning people against each other. It has to be. After all, if you believe in controlling people’s lives, the people who don’t wish to be controlled need to be vilified. If you believe in confiscating the wealth of successful people who won’t give it up willingly, then others must be convinced they’re terrible human beings who deserve to be punished. “Victim” classes must be created for the socialists to defend because if everyone is responsible for himself, what need is there for the socialist? Eventually, those who depend on government for their livelihood and those that the government smears and loots to pay them off come to hate each other.

    5) Socialists believe the ends justify the means: Like the pigs in Orwell’s Animal Farm, socialists believe that, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” For a socialist, the overriding concern is always promoting socialism; so process, rules and regulation mean different things for different people. Fidel Castro may have been the leader of a Communist revolution against the evil “rich people” in Cuba, but he’s worth 900 million dollars today. A law broken by a Democrat and a Republican may be treated very differently by the papers, the courts, and even the Department of Justice under Eric Holder. As Margaret Thatcher explained,
    “Left-wing zealots have often been prepared to ride roughshod over due process and basic considerations of fairness when they think they can get away with it. For them the ends always seems to justify the means. That is precisely how their predecessors came to create the gulag.”
    One of the reasons so many socialist nations are wracked with violent protests and revolutions is because when the rule of law is abandoned, only outlaws have any hope of receiving justice.”

  4. What a hash of confused ideas! The countries in Scandinavia has embraced democratic socialism (or social democracy, as it is called here). We have society funded universities and hospitals. Private capitalists are free to make themselves rich. We have good economic growth. The press is free. – To compare democratic socialism with the system of North Korea is just absurd.

    • You keep it. We are a Republic with a Constitution that is meant to serve the good of all. It wasn’t set up to be a socialist society. When your socialist run countries need some kind of bail out, who do they call on. As is historically the case in the US, there have been, are and will always be those low information elements who are gullible to communism and socialism. There will always be those who take advantage of that ignorance and build on it. A well informed citizenry is the best defense to our Constitution and way of life. Sadly, there seems to be more idiots now wanting to sell their freedoms for the ‘fair’ and free entitlements they think they deserve by just their existence here. What is their contribution that is equal to their demands? Water finds its own level, and so does ignorance, hate, and destructive intent. God save America and her level of good works and generosity by good people. To hell with the stupidity and evil underhandedness that exists at this moment in our history. We shall prevail. We shall overcome again.

  5. Student huh? Students should be taught to listen more than they talk. Ignorance and arrogance often go hand in hand and this silly person is a walking and certainly talking example of that rule.

  6. She has figures in her head and vomits them out without making sense in any way. College education would be wasted on her. She can spew nonsense, but cannot listen. She twists anything said to her. Can’t listen to any more diarrhea of the mouth.

  7. FOX has gone a little too left of center for me. Megan Kelly lost me after her opening questions in the first debate to Trump about his ‘nasty remarks’ about women and kept at him. No matter the candidate, it could have been put in a more professional way instead of the knife attack. Her latent liberalism is out there now. Gone Hollywood…
    Brett Baier is on my no-watch list now, too, for much the same reasons. Hannity is holding true.
    Murdock and Ailes’ will lose their base in the not too distant future.
