Rand Paul Fears Sanders’ European-Style Socialism Leads to Genocide

Rand Paul
We have seen Bernie Sanders and Bill Maher show how much Americans love socialism, but Rand Paul is terrified that Bernie Sanders’ socialist agenda will lead to genocide.

Paul revealed his fears on a South Carolina radio show, which demonstrates that South Carolina can be as bad for Republicans a Iowa. It sure hasn’t done Lindsey Graham any favors. And Paul has sunk into this non-intellectual, thinking-optional quagmire as well.

Paul compared Sanders’ European-style socialism to the communist regimes of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. You know, because socialism is the same thing as Soviet-style communism, which isn’t anything like Karl Marx communism. And making these faulty comparisons should scare Paul.

You know, because they reveal to America that he’s not too bright.

“It amazes me and it actually kind of scares me. I’ve been spending more time going after Bernie and socialism because I don’t want America to succumb to the notion that there’s anything good about socialism. I think it’s not an accident of history that most of the times when socialism has been tried that attendant with that has been mass genocide of people or any of those who object to it. Stalin killed tens of millions of people. Mao killed tens of millions of people. Pol Pot killed tens of millions of people. When you have a command economy, when everything is dictated from one authority, that’s socialism, but it doesn’t come easily to those who resist it.”

Because, we’ve seen European socialism kill millions of people. Oh wait…

Look, I am amazed too – that anyone could compare European-style socialism, as found in Scandinavia, to the regime of Pol Pot. Apparently, there is a new stupid in town and it’s making old fashioned stupid look smart.

But they, this is Rand Paul. And if Donald Trump is right about anything on this planet, it is Rand Paul. Well, and the fact that George W. Bush didn’t keep us safe.

According to Paul, the Democratic candidates are “all trying to outdo each other in their disdain for the economic system of capitalism that made us great,” which isn’t true of course. Not only did Hillary Clinton defended capitalism at the first Democratic debate, but Paul ignores the great evils wrought by rampant capitalism, including the vices of the Gilded Age, the Great Depression, and the crash of 2008, to name but a few.

The truth is, rather, that Republicans refuse to acknowledge the inability of unregulated capitalism to address our nation’s – and the world’s – problems. Slinging mud at Bernie Sanders might work with the Republican base, but a cogent objection to anything Sanders has said, it is not.

  1. Nobody falls for this schtick anymore, Rand. You can’t wave the “Boo Communist!” bogeyman in 2015 America. And you absolutely CANNOT compare anyone in our political system to the likes of Hitler, Stalin, or Pol Pot, three of the worst mass-murdering dictators in recent history.

    Give it up. You’re done.

  2. The problem is, the people in SC probably eat that stuff up. Socialism is BAD! BAD! BAD! European socialism is one step from Nazism. But keep your hands off my Medicare. And my Social Security benefits. And give the VA more money because We Support Our Troops.

  3. Paul is such a drama queen. He’s worried or frightened so easily. He needs to worry about all the money he wasted buying that caucus in Kentucky. The only thing he’s capable of is making noise, nothing of importance.

  4. Yet, somehow, they miss the fact that Rand Paul and his ilk are the ones who want to take their medicare and Social Security. South Carolina stupid is a special kind of stupid.

  5. I can understand why Rand Paul would be scared. Thinking that Bernie Sanders in any way compares to Pol Pot, Stalin and Mao is almost certainly a sign of early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. That would scare the heck out of me. On top of that, look at his dad.

  6. What the hell does Rand think GOP Capitalism leads to. If you are anything but a rich white man then you are worthless and have no purpose in society.

  7. This is just the beginning. If Sanders should somehow defeat the corrupt Democratic machine and secure the nomination, these kind of red-baiting attacks will become more common on TV than beer commercials thanks to super PACs.

    Sanders’ political revolution must not be denied if we are to survive because the ideology of neo-liberalism, embraced by pols from Clinton to Cruz, is unsustainable and anti-democratic.

    Revolt Against Plutocracy has deployed a strategy to tell Democrats it’s going to be Bernie or bust. By “bust,” they mean the Democrats will lose the election.

  8. Oh hell…here we go again. More crap to scare the masses with and the masses are generally slow to realize this GOP trick. McCarthyism is alive and well….BOO! BOOOO! Scared ya, didn’t I?

  9. What’s with these dopes? It is always hitler, holocaust, genocide, end of world, persecution, end of the world, again. Talk about false equivalency. Bet most of them pee their pants on a daily basis, the way they get so riled up. They deserve to be laughed at, but they are inciting the rubes that they try so hard to keep stupid so they will send them money.

  10. Well,in my view ,Rand Paul ,like Trump an other of today’s Republican goofy ,non-thinkers, are a menace to our Society..and people need to stop giving them any attention!Bernie Sanders can shut them all down in a minute, by just telling it like it is!!!

  11. Part of the problem is that Republicans demonize anything they don’t like. So they’ve turned words like feminist, socialist, secular, liberal, and the phrase “politically correct” into negatives. Twisted and perverted by the Party of Lies.

    Yet those words represent what most Americans believe, and the U.S. becomes more progressive with each generation.

    Check out this study

    “The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America is a Myth.”

    A little dated, but still on target. I found it while trying to figure out why so many Americans id as Republican and conservative, when most favor progressive policies. Hint: polls rely on labels.

  12. While Mitch is a special kind of stupid, Randbo likes to give the impression that he’s just soo much smarter then the average Kentuckian. He’s smarter at least then the ones that he convinces to vote for him. It probably has something to do with his timing of the use of Dr in front of his name again. If you can’t win honestly, dazzle them with a little bull excrement!

  13. …just point out that Randy-Boy practices a bastardized version o’ the politics his daddy and the Koch Bro’s does…
    …only way this {3 expletives deleted} would do any good in the world is to dump politics, join Doctors without Borders and restore eyesight to the worlds poor…

  14. It’s too bad that,on the way to becoming an eye doctor (there’s a joke in there somewhere), that he didn’t sign up for Political Science 101. Or perhaps he did, and he’s depending on the ignorance of his constituents.

  15. He has soo many irons in the fire right now I have to wonder how he’s representing his constituents and his patients. A friend of mine from his hometown said they call him the tampon doctor, because he goes in once a month to fix a problem. Not everyone in Ky is buying what he’s selling.

  16. One of the best things about millennial generation is they were not inundated by the red baiting previous generations have endured. Research show they have no fear over the word socialism and have opened their minds to social democracy.

    When the fear tactics arise, consider the source, Rand Paul. Enough said.
