“Sitting on a cornflake
Waiting for the van to come
Corporation tee shirt
Stupid bloody Tuesday
Man, you been a naughty boy
You rejected socialism
” 

~ Abe Lincoln, First Inaugural Address March 4th 1861

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018, a day that which shall live in infamy, the United States went to the polls in the midterm elections to decide the fate of the country. Would they abandon the cruel white nationalism of the Republican party and vote for the Democrats who would institute a compassionate socialist workers paradise?

Here at the Worldwide Headquarters of Manhattan Infidel™ we have watched in dismay the defeat of Hillary Clinton by Donald Trump who is literally Hitler.™  We have asked ourselves this question:  If Literally Hitler hadn’t colluded with the Russians would he have won? Sure he won the votes of 63 million racist white folk who long for the days of public lynchings and Klan terror but was that enough to put him over the top? I mean Hillary Clinton was the most qualified, articulate and compassionate woman who ever ran for office. (With the possible exception of James Buchanan who was also a qualified, articulate and compassionate woman.)

Would America wake up from its long national nightmare and put the Democrats back in the majority in the House and Senate?

“There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.”

~ Abe Lincoln, 2nd debate with Stephen A. Douglas, 1858

Many people look at the above quote and wonder, “What was Abe trying to tell us?”

While the answer has been debated I believe Abraham Lincoln was trying to tell America not to abandon its true calling towards socialism.

  1. There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold – What glitters more than the promise of socialism?
  2. When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed with a word she can get what she came for – The stores being closed to her because she didn’t have enough money to buy basic necessities.  However the promise of socialism, “With a word she can get what she came for” shows that money will not be necessary under socialism
  3. Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven – Only socialism will immanentize the eschaton.

It is clear the Abraham Lincoln wanted the United States to embrace socialism.

But if you’re still not convinced I will leave you with words from his justifiably famous Second Inaugural Address of March 4th, 1865:

“Ain’t got a care in world, but got plenty of beer
Ain’t got no money in my pocket, but I’m already here
Now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger

I’m talkin’ bout – everybody getting crunk, crunk
Boys tryna touch my junk, junk
Gonna smack him if he getting too drunk, drunk
Now, now – we goin’ ’til they kick us out, out
Or the police shut us down, down
Police shut us down, down
Po-po shut us – (down)-man”

  1.  Ain’t got a care in the world but got plenty of beer – Socialism provides!
  2.  Now the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger – Swagger born of the confidence of socialism!
  3. Po-po shut us down -man – Capitalists hate and envy socialists and will always try to shut them down.

May America vote for the Democrats and usher in the perfect socialist workers paradise where the po-po will never shut us down!

    That’s a remarkable post, Infidel. Tick Tock? Just ask Abe and K$sha. But the best of all was “immanentize the eschaton.”

    Let’s see how it all works out and in the meanwhile, they have liturgical dance, we have guns.

    Btw, what’s happened to “Gwinny”?

    Cheers.

      Gwinny is steam cleaning her vagina.

      I am tired. Worked from 6 am to 11 pm last night here at CBS news. Back in the office at 5 am.

      But on the bright side my hotel room had the Bible AND the Book of Mormon.
