As Twitchy reported, 86 House Democrats voted Thursday against a resolution to denounce the horrors of socialism and dictators including Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and Kim. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries seemed to suggest that condemning socialism would undermine the House Democrats’ agenda. Brandon Morse of Twitchy’s sister site RedState wrote a great piece about it.
Split Vote to Condemn 'Horrors of Socialism' Show Democrats Have a Socialism Problem https://t.co/thIHANvgU8

Do you know who didn’t care for Morse’s take? The Socialist Party, who fell back on the old reliable trope that “real socialism has never been tried.”
These idiots squealing about “Horrors of Socialism” when the class-free, state-free, money-free socialism that Marx and Engels wanted and wrote about has NOT YET STARTED. pic.twitter.com/BwMs2Uj0oE

The headings got cut off in that tweet, but they read: “WHICH COUNTRIES HAVE TRIED SOCIALISM?” and “NONE. SOCIALISM HAS NOT YET STARTED.”
Furthermore, “Marxist socialism comes AFTER global capitalism is abandoned. This has not yet happened!”
Why haven’t you guys gone off and built an example of real socialism to show the rest of us how great it is?

Ah… the Real Socialism™️ has never been tried trope.
Best of luck with getting "global capitalism abandoned."

Explain how what William Bradford had wasn't socialism.
I'm talking about before private property was implemented… when everyone was borderline starving.

… because it’s a long-debunked 19th Century utopian fantasy, you twits.

Ask yourself why it hasn’t started? Is it for lack of attempts? I think not. Perhaps the ideal is not attainable and any past, present and future attempts will result in the same horrific results. It’s insane and arrogant to claim you have the skills to prevent the horror.

They really did the “real socialism has never been tried” defense. They get awfully testy whenever anyone brings up the body count of failed socialist societies.
