Earlier today, Twitchy reported on a Martin Luther King piece pushed by CNN that claimed MLK was an environmentalist AND a socialist before it was cool to be socialist.
Okay CNN, was this an apple or a banana?
And seriously, if Venezuela isn’t socialist what is it?
The Venezuelan people dying because of socialism would probably disagree about their government being “cool.”

We’re going to have to agree with Allie.
I'm not sure a lot of people would link what's happening to Venezuela to socialism; in fact everything I've read and talking to people from there attributes there collapse to other problems. https://t.co/BfgiKWBoYz

CNN writers, smh.
Author of "MLK was a socialist before it was cool" piece has no idea what socialism actually is https://t.co/wsuEjF5zZX

Next, like other socialists, he’ll tell us socialism has never been implemented correctly and that’s why it sucks so badly.

All link it to socialism. And writers should know ‘their’ from ‘there’. Pure garbage article on MLK.

It was pretty bad.
Socialism never works. It has never worked, it will never work. It’s killed and continues to kill millions. It’s disgusting that an organization like CNN would push it. Shame on you all!

Maybe calling MLK a socialist wasn’t such a smart move.
Also, you're wrong. Socialism always leads to starvation on a mass scale. Stop normalizing it.
