Zack Ford, you are a Marxist piece of shit! You really can go “F” yourself! BTW, there is a growing concensus that “The only good Marxist, is a dead one!”  Got to say, I can’t find much of a problem with that saying!
You need to keep playing with the unarmed minds of our young and undereducated citizens, because the American public is waking up to the perversions of the Marxist fantasy! Your kind will never win, because the patriots of this country will use armed force to prevent the Marxist dictatorship you and the Apollo Project envision for this country!
Got to tell you, I really do hate ANYONE who espouses that loser belief system!
In the Spirit of AMERICAN Liberty,
AZRanger

Is there really? A concensus? Or did you mean consensus? No worries; it’s an easy mistake.

What is Marxism? I don’t know. It seems that there are quite a few permutations of it. Which do you mean?

I’ll admit, AZRanger, that I am somewhere between a social democrat and a democratic socialist. I don’t trust the free market to ensure the prosperity of the masses. And I hate to point this out, but there’s been quite a lot of evidence lately to remind me why I don’t trust corporations.

Oh, by the way, if you’ve read this far and wonder what this post is about: the above was a comment that was left on one of my posts.

Now, you’d think that AZRanger was concerned about the post I wrote a couple weeks ago explaining why I don’t respect libertarianism and in which I shared recent data that demonstrates the racial motives of the Tea Party. I pretty much admitted my socialist tendencies in that post.

You might be surprised, though, to find that AZRanger posted his comment on my post last week about Negrophilia, a book that attempts to paint white people as the victims. I can’t imagine why calling out racism would prompt AZRanger to defend capitalism and attack my political leanings, except—oh, that’s right, he probably can’t separate the two. An unrestrained free market (a la Rand Paul) almost certainly ensures continued white dominance over our society. Let’s get back to the comment.

So, what’s  a Marxist? I don’t really know. I’m certainly no student of political philosophy. I can’t help  but think this all sounds a bit McCarthyist. Anyone who doesn’t abide by strict Tea Party politics is a Marxist, a socialist, a communist, and a Nazi, even though many of those words contradict each other or have no relation whatsoever.

Let me just say, I don’t want a dictatorship. I don’t want a revolution. Really, I don’t. Is that the only part you’re worried about? Because if so, then we’re cool, AZRanger.

I do have some socialist leanings, but that’s specifically out of concern for the undereducated and unarmed. We might not be living under martial law, but the control that corporations have over our lives is probably much more severe than we can realize. Where you don’t want a political dictator, I don’t want a financial one. Surely we can appreciate each other’s desire to be free of such oppression.

Here’s my problem, though, AZRanger. You’ve threatened me in a public forum. You disagree with me, and that’s fine, but you don’t seem concerned with helping me understand your point of view. I certainly don’t understand where you stand from what you’ve said here on my blog. You’ve indicated that you would rather wipe me and people who agree with me out. Are you defending America for all Americans, or are you defending America just for people who think like you? It sounds like you are the one who wants to use an armed revolution to take control over our nation or a particular ideology, which would be a violation of our democracy. Am I the threat? Or is it your own paranoia?

I had to look up the “Apollo Project.” I honestly had never heard of it. I assume you didn’t mean the NASA’s Apollo program. There is an Apollo Project that does performance recording, which I suppose I appreciate as a musician. The Apollo Alliance promotes clean energy, so that doesn’t seem to fit. Then again, I should never underestimate Glenn Beck’s ability to purvey creative conspiracy theories (watch the video on FOX News). I’ve watched Beck’s bit, but I just don’t understand what’s at stake or what your problem is, AZRanger. Sounds like Beck’s use of “black nationalist” and “communist” successfully scared you, but I’d be interested to know what you think my connection to this random group might be. Also, is clean energy bad? Are jobs bad? How would you propose reducing our dependence on foreign oil and creating new jobs? Maybe we can talk each other out of the crazy tree.

I’m an American. I like liberty. I don’t like hate. Thanks for your comment.

    Chances are he wouldn’t know how to define Marxist or Socialist if his life depended on it.   The thing with the Teabaggers is that they’re right, and everybody else is a MarxistSocialistNaziLibrulCommieFag.    It doesn’t matter that Marxists, Socialists, Nazis, Liberals, Communists, etc, are entirely different groups with different ideals, systems, etc.  The Teabaggers just know Glenn Beck says these groups are “not them” and are therefore “bad”.   They then use the labels  interchangeably or even together, regardless of the fact that they don’t know a damn thing about them.   It’s just one more way they expose their ignorance and hypocrisy.
    The death threats are nothing new.    It’s just another facet of their Christiany love thingy, whereby you either kowtow to them or face the consequences.    Of course they continue to pretend they’re the persecuted ones, as if having a black, librul president is so unbearable they’ll perish before 2012 unless they riot.

  • Dan says:

    Very well written. You are very articulate, and you demonstrated that by clearly rebutting his comment in a calm, rational, and coherent manner.

  • ZackFord says:

    Thanks Dan!

    My favorite part was the way he could say “shit” but he couldn’t bring himself to say “fuck.” That’s what clued me in to the fact that he was upset, but not seriously threatening me. I figured it was an opportunity to reply in a considerate way. We’ll see what happens.

    The teabaggers’ hate isn’t in a vacuum.  It is being incited by corporate interests that have used racism, sexism, and heterosexism to keep people under their thumb for centuries in this country.
