Musician Defects From Left In Disgust At Their Intolerance, Socialism

Story here.

Maureen Tucker of "The Velvet Underground":

I’m stunned that so many people who call themselves liberal yet are completely intolerant. I thought liberals loved everyone: the poor, the immigrant, the gays, the handicapped, the minorities, dogs, cats, all eye colors, all hair colors! Peace, love, bull! Curious they have no tolerance whatsoever for anyone who doesn’t think exactly as they do. You disagree and you’re immediately called a fool, a Nazi, a racist. That’s pretty f’d up!! I would never judge someone based on their political views. Their honesty, integrity, kindness to others, generosity? Yes. Politics? No!

On socialism...

No country can provide all things for all citizens. There comes a point where it just isn’t possible, and it’s proven to be a failure everywhere it’s been tried. I am not oblivious to the plight of the poor, but I don’t see any reason/sense to the idea that everyone has to have everything, especially when the economy is so bad. I see that philosophy as merely a ploy to control. ….


I disagree with spending / borrowing / printing — damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!  I disagree with the “we won” attitude, which is the cowardly way of saying fuck you! I disagree with an administration that for twenty months blames Bush. If the President and his minions are so damn smart, why didn’t they know the severity of the situation? The president has actually said (and I saw it on video) that they didn’t know!

 Welcome to the Club of the Sane and Real-Worldly, Maureen!

She hasn't met the canadian own socialists. they want to provide every one with the same milk and honey except they provide carviar and champagne for themselves.

Can you imagine socialists communist governments eat the same food as the poorer ones?

The socialists' media eat the best as well or else the media will turn ugly if they don't.

Under communism, the elites definitely do NOT eat or live the same as "the people".

Communism is just another scam, a swindle, to enrich the few at the expense of the many.

I see that happening at CBC as well, they take billions from the public in return for: cheap shows; lousey media reporting and reruns of news etc, while they live in caviar, limos, giving our money to other special interest groups of theirs.
This is why CBC doesn't like nor want SunTV around.
Man will I love to see a Glenn Beck like here undoing the CBC's schemes and boondogglings on a huge blackboard. It would be something to see. This, scares them.
