Kent State Socialist Group Suggests Gulag for Dissenting Voice
We all know what would happen to most of us if socialists got their way.
Assuming we didn't die outright in the immediate aftermath due to "self-inflicted" gunshots to the back of the head, we would end up in a gulag somewhere inhospitable. Being from the South, I suspect I'd be sent to Alaska or something.
We all know it. It's just a little refreshing to see a socialist come right out and say it.
A socialist student group at Kent State University recently suggested that a conservative student belongs in a Soviet prison camp for her stance on free speech.
The comment was made after Leandra Westbrook, vice president of the school’s Turning Point USA chapter, defended her organization from a petition designed to stifle free speech.
“Silencing speech is fascism,” she tweeted. “The petition is useless. We aren’t going anywhere.”
The Kent State Socialist Collective (KSSC), a student organization that was formed in 2013, responded to Westbrook by tweeting a map of the Soviet Gulag system and telling her that “there's one place you might be going…”
According to the group’s Facebook page, the organization “exists to facilitate a sense of understanding and community between those who are interested in socialism and those who are socialists.”
“We stand on the side of the working class, the oppressed, the exploited, and anyone who wishes to create a better world based upon equality, justice, and peace,” the group’s mission statement reads. “The KSSC is a coalition of ideologically diverse students and community members united by a desire to advance the idea of a world beyond capitalism.”
Here's the tweet in question:

Yeah, can't imagine why no one takes socialists seriously these days.
This is the typical response from the radical left. If you dare to disagree with them, they want you removed from their presence, regardless of how. These are people who will celebrate a murder of someone they dislike. They're fine with hurting people who disagree with them, but freak out if those same people decide to stand up and respond with self-defense.
