Kyle Jurek, an organizer for the Bernie Sanders Campaign, holds some pretty interesting views. He believes that, once Bernie is elected President, all conservatives, liberal Democrats and other non-socialists will have to be sent to gulags for re-education and hard labor. Those who won’t come around should, in his view, be lined up against a wall and shot. He also calls for violence against people who voice unpopular opinions calling it a “consequences of free speech”.
This is the kind of extremist mentality that led to the socialist revolutions in the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, Venezuela, and many other nations, in the 20th century. None of those nations is better off under socialism. Luckily, the socialist extremists don’t have the numbers, weapons or training to make for a successful revolution, but they do have the ability to kill a lot of good people before they’re stopped. The best way to fight such madness is to remain vigilant and don’t be afraid to stand up to people like Mr. Jurek. Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
