After years of making assumptions, capitalist accusations have just been verified; socialists aren’t truly in love with socialism… they’re really just sore losers.
Oh, that’s not what they say about themselves…
Socialists say they’re socialists because of their compassion for their fellow man – especially those less fortunate than themselves.
Unless, of course, that person is a conservative…
Or unless those self-proclaimed socialists have to give up something themselves.
Then they don’t believe in socialism at all.
Take Bernie Sanders, for instance…
For DECADES, Bernie’s been railing against the 1%, saying they’re not paying their “fair” share – until he became one of them with millions in the bank and three different houses.
If Bernie were a REAL socialist, he’d give two of those houses to the state, donate his millions to the poor, or even voluntarily pay more to the IRS…
But he hasn’t done any of those things.
Do you know what he has done?
He’s changed his language to attack BILLIONAIRES instead of measly millionaires like him.
It’s called “moving the goalposts,” and the Left is incredibly adept at it.
The Socialist’s BIGGEST Lie
So where’s all that compassion that socialists claim to have?
It’s practically non-existent…
And a new study proves that their ideology has very little to do with compassion and way more to do with their resentment to those who have been able to succeed.
According to the Cato 2019 Welfare, Work, and Wealth National Survey, it all comes down to the fact that socialists are just sore losers who feel like they can’t make it in a capitalist system…
They want the government to level the playing field so they can benefit from other people’s hard work.
Stats reveal that resentment of the successful has about TWICE the effect of compassion in predicting support for “increasing top marginal tax rates, wealth redistribution, hostility to capitalism, and believing billionaires should not exist,” the report says.
The study was created from a survey that asked people to answer a series of questions that psychologists have developed to measure a person’s level of compassion for/envy or resentment of the successful.
Socialists HATE Success – Here’s Their Reasoning
These questions didn’t mention politics or wealth at all; they just asked how people felt about those who succeed and those who don’t…
For example, one of the ways you can measure a person’s level of compassion is by asking respondents if they agree or disagree with questions like: “I suffer from others’ sorrows,” or “I feel sympathy for those who are worse off than myself.”
However, to measure a person’s level of resentment toward successful people, they were asked different questions, such as whether they agree or disagree that “Very successful people sometimes need to be brought down a peg or two even if they’ve done nothing wrong,” or “It’s good to see very successful people fail occasionally.”
And the survey showed that those who tend to lean towards socialism show a HIGH level of resentment towards the successful.
However, the study does show that compassion and resentment both equally predict support for socialism.
What does that mean?
Well, it means that these confused people can’t separate the facts from their emotions and will allow those emotions to drive their feelings towards success and those who figure out ways to become wealthy in our society.
They think compassion is giving everybody the same amount of fish – regardless of who catches them.
Conservatives think compassion is teaching everybody how to fish and only giving fish to those who aren’t physically able to fish for themselves…
The difference is doing your fair share of the work.
Socialists don’t believe that…
And now there’s proof.
Not that we needed any…
We know the Left is fueled by hate and resentment – this is nothing new – but it’s nice to see that the numbers back that up.
