'New York Times' Gushes Over Communist Community Center


So, in last Wednesday’s New York Times, Channing Joseph wrote a glowing piece on a community center for communists – a place called Brecht Forum, where, “Smiles abound.”

And when I mean a glowing piece, I mean, really glowing. Like a pregnant lady holding a nightlight made of kryptonite.

On the sun.

Anyway, Joseph describes these “revolutionaries” playing foosball, table tennis and even Marxist Monopoly.

Basically it’s a “Dave and Busters” built on mass graves.

I know, small fact: Communists killed like 50 million people.

But, as Joseph shows: it doesn’t mean its desciples can’t have a little fun!

And despite existing only to gloss over the horrors of a wicked ideology, it is a “surprisingly open and idealistic place.”

And – they play poker!

Now, I often judge writing not simply on an author’s clumsy biases – but what I call “barf” moments. These are moments that occur, while reading- in which you actually throw up.

Here, there were a few.

But the two lines that buttoned up this F-U to humanity could turn even Stalin’s stomach.

The writer spews:

While Mr. Balagun waved me out the front door, I imagined Marx’s ghost floating in the hazy light of the evening, watching over the poker players. Behind his famous thicket of a beard, I could almost see a grin.”

Now if you’re imagining Marx’s ghost, then I’m sure you can see his grin – not “almost” see it. I mean, you are imagining it.

Just like you imagined the rest of this loathsome crap.

Channing Joseph, congrats – you have created the first ever literary emetic. If a child is choking, simply read those two lines out loud. And stand back.

…and if you disagree with me, then you’re a racist, homophobic communophobe.
