Last Thursday, BuzzFeedUK Science Editor Kelly Oakes announced her Christmas wish on Twitter, saying that, “All I want for Christmas is full Communism now.” The tweet went viral, Twitchy said, adding that she locked down her account, apparently as a result of the criticism she received from the reality-based community on the social media site.
As Twitchy noted, it didn’t go over too well.
Reminder: Communism is responsible for the death of MILLIONS of people. https://t.co/vpcDpstjDz

Or Cuba. Or Communist China. Either will do.
Then move to N. Korea. Or Cuba. Or some other piss poor third world country that people risk their lives to escape. https://t.co/QiSIPTVx8r

Amazing how that works, isn’t it? Just like all those liberal celebrities who promised to leave America if Trump won. Guess what? Most of them are still here…
A post at Chicks on the Right observed:
We’re at a point where it’s cool to speak highly of dictators (just ask Colin Kaepernick how he feels about Fidel Castro) and wear shirts honoring stains on society (like Che Guevera). My generation is the worst when it comes to that kind of stuff. They’re actually overeducated. They have piles and piles of degrees. They sat under Marxist professors for years. They’ve been listening to these influencers for years. Then they go out into the real world and tweet about how they want communism for Christmas.
Hannah Bleau further wrote that the “entire concept is evil and contrary to human nature, but SCREW THAT. She’s edumacated! She knows. We’d be better off if our grocery stores looked like this:”

This, by the way, is the modern left. Let that sink in.
