The red Pope is at it again, blaming the west for the failure of the third world that created the situation where millions of refugees have fled their homes because of wars, poverty, and corruption. This time, the red Pope is blaming America and all of capitalism for creating this strife.
The red Pope was goaded to his latest hate for the west by President Donald Trump’s claims that he would shut down the U.S. border with Mexico unless Mexican authorities took measures to stop the wave after wave of so-called “migrant caravans.”
The Pope went wild once again, this time on Friday in an interview with Spanish journalist Jordi Evole from La Sexta. The red Pope not only slammed Trump and the U.S.A., but he took out after all of capitalism.
“He who raises a wall ends up a prisoner of the wall he erected,” Francis said. “That’s a universal law in the social order and in the personal one. If you raise a wall between people, you end up a prisoner of that wall that you raised.”
“Yes, I defend my autonomy, yes. But you’re left alone like a mushroom,” Francis added.
Before attacking the U.S., Francis went after Spain for the “shameful” way it has treated illegal migrants. Francis added that war, famine, and poverty is what motivates people to leave their countries.
“Why do [migrants] come? [Because] they live in despair and are united in a great illusion … they don’t measure the consequences, and we don’t measure the pain those people have,” the Pope said.
Well, OK, yes. That is true.
But then the idiot ruined that common-sense statement by claiming that capitalism is at the heart of all that strife.
“This is the hourglass,” Francis blathered. “Capitalism conceived of as a savage, not a social market economy […] What doesn’t work is the world of finance. This also creates wars, for the possession of wealth, does it not, whether they are international or national? I argue that we are already in a third world war, in pieces.”
Uh, no. What creates all this strife has precisely zero to do with capitalism. It is cultural Marxism at the heart of all this strife, not capitalism.
The truth is, capitalism is the normal human reaction to want and need. If I make something and have extra, it is only logical to trade some of my items for what someone else has that I need or want. But socialism is unnatural. No one would naturally give away his wares to people who do nothing for him in return.
The red Pope is wrong again as he is on so many other things.
