Blaming the Reds for Neoliberalism

“Anyone who watched the video I posted three days ago, The Great Depression, will have seen firm documentary evidence pointing to a controlled demolition of the global economy. As a result of the fact that an increasing number of people are beginning to take these claims seriously, the paid agents of ‘alternative media’ have responded in typical fashion. According to Rush Limbaugh, the “communist virus” – led by representatives of the Democratic Party, presumably – are busy plotting the downfall of capitalism. He continues: “Are we just going to sit by and watch $22 trillion – that’s the value, that’s the sum total of the GDP, that’s the U.S. economy – are we just going to sit by here and watch it evaporate? Because that’s what we’re doing, under the guise of not losing any unnecessary life – meaning we want to try to save as many lives as we can.” After all, if you put a semblance of truth in the mouth of a right-wing conspiracy theorist, with a little political distortion thrown in for good measure, the American public is likely to dismiss it as total nonsense. Those who do believe it, on the other hand, are likely to blame everything on those irrepressible ‘reds under the beds’. The fact that Limbaugh has a personal fortune of $84.5 million might just provide you with one or two clues about who has actually been filling his pockets all these years.” -Troy Southgate
