This tweet from Senator Ben Sasse is actually pretty RAD:

We love this. Such a great story about a community coming together to help a family who just lost a loved one. What a wonderful reminder of all that is good and true in humankind.
So, of course, some flunkie from The Daily Show had to screw it up:

Dude. Thatâ€™s not how this works â€¦
Once a tool, always a tool.
They did it out of charity, not government coercion, you dolt. https://t.co/dAwpPrUFfS

Just your daily reminder that the Left is seriously clueless about the things they try and push on the rest of us. Socialism is a form of government, it is not a neighbor helping another neighbor in need.
LOL, no. You have no idea what charity is, do you?

Government is the end all and be all for people like Jonathan unfortunately.
No that's not Socialism. That's neighbors helping neighbors Without Government Coercion. Exact Opposite of Socialism. @TheOpulentAmish

Socialism destroys the kind of love and self sacrifice that prompts people to do things like this for their neighbors.

You obviously didnt grow up in the midwest
We help each other, without being forced.

Quiet you silly person from Flyover Country.
If this were socialism, they would have taken the harvest.

And then redistributed as the government saw fit.
Folks, Socialism sucks.
