Don’t worry, it’ll be mainstream in a few years. Like the rest of the Green Party’s positions that trickled down to the moderate left and then the Democrats. Still in this time when the Democrats temporarily bewail treason, it’s nice to remember the origin of fellow travelers, useful idiots, and collaborators. And that there is still no left-wing regime too awful for the left to defend.
Just ask Noam Chomsky. Or Jill Stein.
Stein referred to the negative characterizations of the brutal Communist regime in North Korea as a way to ‘demonize’ them so the U.S. can implement a regime change.
“The demonization of North Korea is part of the run-up to regime change. she said.” “It’s part of demonizing a government that we then want to exercise regime change on.”
Then she claimed that the actions taken by North Korea were merely a defensive reaction to fear of U.S. aggression.
“So, this is very frightening to them,” she said. “They have been basically cornered into feeling like they have to develop a nuclear weapon.”
By “they,” Stein means the dictator and his handful of elites, but leftists offering similar defenses of the USSR and Cuba have been entirely willing to overlook such minor factual problems while continuing to pretend that a brutal Communist dictatorship is in any way representative of the people.
But maybe Jill can help the Norks out with some of that recount money she redistributed from idiot leftists.
