David K. Monroe

The defense of Soros ("well, he does some bad things but he does some good things too, doncha know")reminds me of an argument I had with several leftwing people online about Democratic Socialists Of America, several years ago. I cut and pasted these lyrics which were at that time proudly displayed on the DSA site, in a section of recommended "revolutionary" songs:

"Are you sleeping, Are you sleeping,
Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie,
And when the revolution comes,
We'll kill you all with knives and guns,
Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie"

The response I got (after at least some of my interlocutors actually clicked on the link I provided) was, yeah, they had that and other vile, violent and stupid lyrics, BUT they also had Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land", so obviously I was misrepresenting the DSA and taking them out of context by ONLY posting the song about killing the rich with knives and guns. See, they aren't ALL bad, and aren't you ashamed, Mr. Monroe, about trying to paint with such a broad brush.
