Was Kshama Sawant's Victory a Victory for Socialism? Well, Sorta.

Nationally the headlines have focused on Sawant's avowed socialism, and why not? It's a great headline. This may be the most impressive electoral victory by a US socialist in more than a century. But considering all of Sawant's support from the usual suspects, was it a victory for socialism?

Did I mention this before? Proof that “Trickle Down Economics” no longer works. This is clear and indisputable. Over the last decade corporate profits have skyrocketed to record levels yet wages are seriously depressed and the gap between the top and the middle and lower groups are growing every year. Our whole economy and country is at risk over this economically unhealthy situation.
It's been very good to me, not so much for the stupid and indolent, I suppose. Do you think the mountains of laws, rules and regulations have helped American companies?

I don't. Idiotic libs and "progressives" keep insisting on some utopia that never existed and never will.

Wal-Mart could pay every U.S. employee $14.89 just by not buying its own stock
Rather than buying stock to enrich Waltons, says new report, Wal-Mart could use the same cash to give $5.83 raises
Josh Eidelson
Wal-Mart could afford to hike every U.S. employee’s hourly wage to at least $14.89 an hour just by not repurchasing its own stock, according to a new report from the progressive think tank Demos.
“We find that if Walmart redirected the $7.6 billion it spends annually on repurchases of its own company stock, these funds could be used to give Walmart’s low-paid workers a raise of $5.83 an hour, more than enough to ensure that all Walmart workers are paid a wage equivalent to at least $25,000 a year for full-time work,” authors Catherine Ruetschlin and Amy Traub write in the Demos paper,“A Higher Wage Is Possible: How Walmart Can Invest in Its Workforce Without Costing Customers a Dime.” Demos, whose funders include unions, is releasing the paper Tuesday morning.
Wal-Mart, the world’s largest private employer, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In an emailed statement yesterday, the company announced that it had “surprised more than 350 associates today with on-the-spot promotions during multi-city, town hall meetings” it called “one way the retailer is listening to, learning from and thanking associates for the hard work they do every day.” That statement did not address the news, announced by labor activists Monday afternoon and confirmed that night by the National Labor Relations Board, that the federal agency was prepared to issue a complaint against the retailer for alleged violations of workers’ legal right to organize and strike.
Wal-Mart announced $15 billion in additional stock repurchases at its June annual shareholder meeting, which was attended by thousands of workers flown in from around the world by Wal-Mart, as well as dozens of striking Wal-Mart worker-activists from the labor group OUR Walmart. Also noting a Bloomberg estimate that Wal-Mart repurchased roughly $36 billion in stock in the four prior fiscal years, Ruetschlin and Traub write that the purchases “further consolidated ownership of the company in the hands of the heirs to company founder Sam Walton,” securing the Walton family a bare majority stake in the company, and “increased the value of ownership among the Waltons and the other remaining shareholders.” But they contend the buybacks “did nothing to boost Walmart’s productivity or bottom line and had no direct benefit for Walmart’s customers or frontline employees.”

Considering your limitations I'll try to fill in some of the missing pieces here.

Most "racist killers" kill their victims because of their race, so even though more white people have been murdered by other white people than by blacks, it would follow that most of those murders were committed for reasons other than race.

Same can be said for black on black murder. Most of those crimes were committed for reasons other than race.

That's the funny thing about race based crimes. The race of the victim and the race of the criminal are seldom the same.

Duh.

Posit isn't smart enough to realize that by embracing the Aryan Myth, he is also embracing the propaganda, the ideology and the racist ignorance from which it sprang.
Personally, I think the whole Aryan thing is just another tool in the troll box for these guys. Just one of those things they say to get a reaction and distract from the fact that they don't have a real argument to make.
Besides, at one point POS has claimed to be Hispanic, then Jewish and now he's Aryan.
There is room to question his credibility.
You are the racist one that accused me of being an Aryan because I said I had Aryan characteristics like him. I just happened to take it one step farther and after some study I found out I am Pure Aryan and a member of a deliberately obscured race of mankind. Now do you plan to make this a display of your racism too? Like Rose did with the White race. BTW Aryans are not white. They are ARYAN.

You're an ignoramus and an idiot. Try reading a newspaper sometime. Hate crimes are up since Oblama. Let me guess, dumbass, you never heard of
"knockout"? 4 dead so far, women have been victims. If they saw you prancing down the street you'd likely be chosen.

Racism against whites: The overlooked phenomenon
http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/are-we-bo...
Although there are stereotypes about many groups, not all stereotypes are tabooed to the same degree. For example, there are very strong social norms against expressing negative stereotypes against African Americans and Latino/as. Other stereotypes, including of muslims as dangerous ideologues and of women and frill and dumb, are not particularly held in check these days. These stereotypes are part of our daily national conversation, with very little public outcry.
Yet I'd venture that the perception that all whites are bigots is one of the stereotypes that elicits the least outcry from our society. In so many of our conversations about diversity and overcoming prejudice, whites are too often seen as the source of the problem-- the ones who don't understand, the ones whose attitudes need to be changed, the blue-eyed devils with hate and ignorance in their hearts. "What works well for you when you are interested in inviting white people to talk about racism?"
My experience is that when you try to have that conversation with other whites, if it's on THIS thread, some of them go postal. When you point out the impact of history, they quickly jump into full denial of reality mode. It's apparently not okay to point out that racial discrimination and all kinds of intolerance still exists even though it's blatantly obvious (just read a couple of pages on this thread). NOBODY wants to be stereotyped. If it's you being stereotyped, it's insulting.
