‘You Just Don’t Understand Socialism Like I Do,’ Says College Freshman To Man Who Escaped Socialism On A Raft

MIAMI, FL—While on his way to a summer sociology course at the University of Miami, local college freshman Eddard Pollyton noticed a Cuban American man sitting on a bench. He took the time to lecture the man, who had escaped socialism on a raft when he was young, on why socialism is actually good and how he knows a lot more about socialism than people from socialist countries.

“Greetings!” Pollyton said. “I’m Eddard, he/him. I see from your skin color—which is the most important thing about you—that you are Cuban. Pretty sad how those Cubans aren’t appreciating the great social programs they have right now, am I right?”

The man stared dumbfounded as the student went on and on about private ownership of the means of production, the plight of the proletariat, and the need for the workers to unite and work for the common good. He explained to the man who had nearly starved to death as a child and only survived because his parents had put him on a raft and dared a dangerous sea voyage across the Gulf of Mexico that Cubans have some of the best healthcare, free food and medicine, and literacy programs in the world.

Finally, the man had heard enough. “Get out of here. You young people have no idea what socialism is like, man.”

“Wait a minute—did you just assume my gender?”

    “Higher Education” ? NO ITS NOT, it is no longer an education, but moreso a Brainwashing of America’s youth, YOUR Kids, which you pay for and not a very good investment today !! America’s Educational Systems, its Universities, Colleagues, are FILLED with “professors” teachers that are imported, coming in from Countries that despises America and it’s Constitution and history and who were raised in a climate of Socialism or Communism ( thier the same thing ) so guess what, it is their endeavor to push their agenda of Socialism on America’s youth with the approval of the DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST PARTY !!
