Pope Francis’s Socialist Vision

Posted September 27th, 2015 by Iron Mike

A holy man says it is your duty to share your wealth.  He may not fully understand the difference between Giving and Government Taking.
3 Socialists
Democrats and Socialists will be using ~ twisting ~ his words to justify their populist robbery,  taxation,  and wealth redistribution.  They are unholy!

Pope Francis [born: Jorge Mario Bergoglio] was born in Argentina in 1936 – to parents who had just fled a ruthless Socialist dictator in Italy – Benito Mussolini. But somehow he seems comfortable with the brand of socialism he knew as a child – that of Juan Peron – a fellow fascist who admired Hitler….but had no visions of conquest.

Now in his 78th year the Pope confuses the concepts of genuine voluntary charity with involuntary (coerced) giving,  – with national socialism and the tax systems necessary to make it work.

Maybe all he can see is poor people – and rich people…and maybe he believes the rich got rich by using the poor.   That is a chronic Socialist propaganda theme.  

The Pope has heard it all his life in Argentina – maybe he’s come to really believe it.

He ~ may ~ not fully appreciate how a series of ‘tax the rich’ socialist regeims in Argentina turned that once-thriving industrial giant into a Third World basket case.

He ~ may ~ be genuinely ignorant of the terrible history of some of the popes, – of the papal wars, – and how his Church amassed incredible wealth in gold, art, land, and other treasures…. Maybe he just sees poor people – and rich nations.

When you – your family, and your co-workers or fellow parishioners genuinely give from your heart – money, clothing, time…that is true charity.

BUT,…when your employer our your pastor applies pressure – makes such giving a condition of membership or employment, – that’s not ‘charity’ or ‘giving’, – that is the definition of coercion.

Mao and Obama

When someone like Mao Tse-tung or Obama talk about ‘spreading the wealth around‘ [Obama talks about ‘our collective salvation‘],  – and they have the power of armed police and tax collectors,  – AND they exempt themselves from the misery they inflict on the general population,  – they are populist dictators.

Pope talking to thieves

I certainly believe the Pope means well.  I think he truly believes he is merely God’s servant,  – nothing more.  

I believe he sees the world as a very temporary stop on our journey to eternity,  – and in that light – personal wealth and national wealth are fleeting things,  – best shared with the poor.

But the Socialists who have infected our national politics for the past 120 years DO NOT MEAN WELL.  They see themselves as the intellectual and moral elite – the illuminati,  – gifted to understand how people should be living,  and they seek to impose their vision and their will upon the rest of us.

con man Juan Peron

When their vision includes the racist beliefs of Margaret Sanger and Nancy Pelosi – they become the personification of evil. 

We must call them out,  – publicly expose and vilify them,  – and make sure their elitist ideas are fully understood as evil,  – never to become accepted mainstream beliefs.

Peron on balcony

Imagine the utter folly of someone who never worked to earn a living, – say a ‘community organizer’, – rising to have the power to deny you the doctor of your choice,  – or the religious freedom to disassociate yourself from a gay wedding,  – or to force Catholic nuns to pay for and provide abortion pills and services.

Disney

That could never happen in an alert and informed America – with a working media to expose frauds and pretenders,…could it?

Americans are smart enough to understand the difference between genuine Christian charity – and Socialist taxation, – aren’t they?

Americans have a clear understanding of GOOD vs EVIL, – of ‘Giving’ vs ‘Taking’ – right?

We would never fall for a FRAUD,   – would we?

Obamas on balcony

Americans are way too smart to fall for a slick-talking con man who promises to make the rich pay their fair share…


 

Folks, if you’re reading this, – it is critically important that you explain to your kids the very real differences between true Voluntary Charity vs Pressured Giving vs Taxation.

Socialist are well-schooled and well-rehearsed in the use of propaganda. 

They’ll quickly tell you we need more taxes,  and that it is ‘patriotic’ to pay taxes – ‘for good causes’. 

Of course they want to define the causes and set the rates,  – and hire their relatives to work in the bureaucracies.

After all, aren’t they the gifted illuminati?

    I don’t believe he means well.

    The Pope needs to get a job. The problem with socialism is that eventually the socialists run out of other people’s money.

    I can’t judge as to whether or not he means well but as a Catholic I was disappointed in his push for climate change (Mother Nature does her own thing) and his push for social justice does ring like a leftist approach. You captured it well in the blog. Our Pope would do better to stick to matters of Faith and Morals. I for one agree that Charity is a personal thing while wealth redistribution as BO and his minions see it is stealing from folks who worked hard for what they have. Not in every case is that latter point true but it is true for the common Joe the plumber.

    You can be sure than when the speaker, whoever that may be, the Pope, the President, the UN Secretary General, Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, the Use of the words “social justice” are code words for I am a Socialist hear me roar. They eschew capitalism, praise the redistribution of your wealth, but usually never theirs. The most recent socialist world leaders, Castro, Chavez, Perron, Mousalini, Franco, Hiler, Mao and Stalin were all abject failure. Where are the socialist leader heroes? To whom do they worship at the altar of socialism? We wonder.

    Jonah Goldberg just did a GREAT piece on “social justice” for Prager University. About 5 minutes long, on You Tube; I highly recommend it.

    This pope’s agenda is strongly left-wing-driven. He IS a leftist, and his theology (despite the back-pedaling of the PR dept at the Vatican) is NOT Catholic. (It also seems now that his election was by back-room shenanigans of a type that requires excommunication as punishment, but that’s a topic for another day.)

    He is NOT a true representative of Christ on this earth. And I personally doubt that his intent is good. It may have started that way, decades ago, but the leftist agenda twists the soul into bizarre shapes over time.

    ISN’T IT GREAT HOW ALL THE LAME POLITICIANS, NEVER HAVING WORKED A DAY IN THEIR LIVES, SUGGEST LIFESTYLES FOR ALL THE REST OF US?

    THESE IDIOTS HAVE NEVER WORKED OR CREATED A JOB FOR THEMSELVES OR OTHERS, YET THEY KNOW WHAT’S BEST FOR US ALL. THEY HAVE BEEN TAKERS ALL THEIR LIVES, INVESTING NOTHING, ZERO – IN THIS COUNTRY.

    THEORY DOES LITTLE TO CREATE JOBS.
