Obama tells Argentinian youth that there’s little difference between communism and capitalism.
President Obama suggested to an audience of Argentinian youth that they should just “choose from what works” from communism and capitalism, insinuating that there is little difference between the two ideologies.
In response to a question on nonprofit community organizations and raising funds from public and private sectors, Obama said:
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate.”
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works,” the president added.
Obama then praised Cuba’s dictator Raul Castro despite him being complicit in jailing and executing thousands of political dissidents, although he acknowledged that Havana “looks like it did in the 1950s” due to a subpar economy.
The president concluded by asserting that a free market system “has to have a social and moral and ethical and community basis.”
Obama’s controversial remarks have sparked heavy criticism from pundits, including one from the Independent Sentinel who said:
“The Marxist in the White House is erasing the lines between two dangerous ideologies and the one that made the US great, just as he erased our borders. This is a man who would be at home in communist China.”
Communism has been responsible for the deaths of entire generations of people yet that didn’t stop our own president from praising totalitarianism under the guise of “mending fences” between the United States and Cuba. Obama’s comments aren’t coincidental, it’s worth noting that a globalist utopia would consist of communism and capitalism melding together with multinational corporations milking the world while remaining tax exempt themselves.
