Socialism, along with its militant cousin communism, is responsible for more death and destruction throughout human history than any other political ideology. Nothing else comes close.
From the millions murdered by Hitler’s National Socialist Party to the tens of millions killed by socialists/communists Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union) and Mao (China) along with a dark collection of lesser dictators, socialism is a proven killer of freedom, opportunity, and many-many human lives.
And now, in 2019, that long and brutal legacy of suffering has come to America, infecting our politics and just this past week in Dayton, Ohio, bringing with it tragic loss of life.
“Monday morning following the horrific, deadly mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas over the weekend, as well as Gilroy, California last week, the networks were eager to pin blame on President Trump for “fueling” the violence with his “hateful rhetoric” against immigrants. What they were not eager to do was point out that the alleged social media accounts of one of these shooters (Dayton, Ohio) revealed he was a radical leftist, who supported socialism, Antifa, and Elizabeth Warren for president.”
Heavy(.)com found the Twitter account of the alleged Dayton attacker
His account promoted:
-Strong anti-ICE rhetoric
-He called the terrorist who attacked the ICE facility in Tacoma a "martyr"

Should anyone be surprised? Sadly, no.
For years these homegrown American socialists have advocated for the destruction of foundational American values like free expression and self-determination.
They have cheered depictions of President Trump’s decapitation.
They have repeatedly attacked law enforcement.
They have sided with America-hating terrorists.
They have, and continue, to call for violence against any and all who oppose them, easily manipulating those already suffering from mental health issues to take action.
Some among them are now members of Congress.
Some now demand you make them president.
The socialist barbarians are now well beyond the gate and leaving death and destruction in their wake.
2020 will likely be the single most important election of our lives and the choices have never been more clear.
Choose life or choose socialism…
