Socialist Kshama Sawant Blasts Tweet about Barbara Bush


Less than 24 hours after the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush, Seattle socialist councilwoman Kshama Sawant blasted this tweet sent out by theWomen’s March official Twitter account.
Sawant's response is mostly on target here. Barbara Bush was the evil behind the evil.

But there is truth in the @womensmarch tweet also. Barbara Bush was about power. It's just that @womensmarch doesn't get that government power is evil. In other words, championing Bush's power tells us more about @womensmarch than it does anything else. They admire political power.

Sawant at least gets that lady Bush is not the kind of power person she wants in charge. She, of course, wants it reserved for her socialist team.

She gets Ludwig von Mises on this point:
The worst thing that can happen to a socialist is to have his country ruled by socialists who are not his friends.

    The Soviet Union was a running commentary on that point.

    "...even well-meaning progressives can end up giving cover to ruling class & ultimately undermining struggles against oppression"

    Sawant and her savvy progressives, once in power, will not oppress
    but will "reeducate" the innocent and mete out "justice" to the "oppressors".

    That's how Hitlery's supporters must feel right now, knowing the wrong socialist is in power.

    The same fate will fall on Trumpistas next time, as populism has also a left side.
