(Liberty Bell) – The radical Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has a “radical idea” for how to use her pet far-left policies to try to cope with the coronavirus crisis.
It’s so radical, in fact, that the nation’s leading socialist magazine is praising her for it.
As if it’s all that surprising that this “Squad” member would earn admiration from a bunch of socialists.
“Here is maybe a radical idea to deal with some of the pressures our healthcare system is facing: All private hospitals should be made public for the duration of the virus,” the perpetually controversial congresswoman tweeted this week.
This is, plainly and simply, communism, and earned her the agreement and support of Meagan Day, a well-known staff writer for Jacobin magazine and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

It is important to note that while Omar’s suggestion for a complete overhaul of the private healthcare system be temporary, does anyone really believe such a dramatic change would be temporary, really?
Day, who is a fan of this idea, has admitted her goal is “to end capitalism.”
“I’m a staff writer at the socialist magazine Jacobin and a member of DSA, and here’s the truth: In the long run, democratic socialists want to end capitalism,” she wrote in a well-circulated and highly controversial piece penned for Vox two years ago.
“And we want to do that by pursuing a reform agenda today in an effort to revive a politics focused on class hierarchy and inequality in the United States. The eventual goal is to transform the world to promote everyone’s needs rather than to produce massive profits for a small handful of citizens.”
When first published, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned Democrats of “the demons they are unleashing” by Jacobin’s brand of radicalism.
“Make no mistake: This is the history of violent revolution, religious oppression, and dictatorship that Jacobin magazine, the DSA, and opportunistic Democrats are embracing – whether they know it or not,” he wrote.
His statements turned out to be prophetic.
BizPac Review notes the irony that the coronavirus pandemic is spreading thanks to the mismanagement and lies of the Communist Chinese.
So we can be just like China? You know, the country “led” by the unrepentant dictators who caused this mess?
But if you like that lifestyle, move to China.

Suuuuure! We can be JUST LIKE CHINA, with a nationalized health system.
You know, China… that same country that caused all of this because, as a communist country, can hide their guilt, destroy evidence and not act in accordance with the best interest of world health. #scary

No! No! No! No! No! No! No!
Collectivism never works. Look at China, Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, and other nations.
Nationalized limits healthcare; not improve it.
Remove bureaucracy that is causing these problems, n hospitals run much better. Past fed gov't interference is problem.

Because it works so well in Italy, China, Venezuela, Cuba, etc. FYI – a radical idea usually implies something that hasn't been tried before or a departure from the norm. Your idea has been tried over and over and over. Fails every time. That's the definition of stupidity.

“Early on, the Communists destroyed samples and suppressed vital information that could have helped mitigate the damage of this new strain of coronavirus,” National Review’s David Harsanyi pointed out.
“The government also silenced doctors who warned about the disease. Some were censured for ‘spreading rumors’ or sharing test results with colleagues, and some were forced to write a self-critical public letter — a Marxist mainstay — admitting that the warning ‘had a negative impact.’ The Chinese Communists probably let five million people leave Wuhan without screening.”
This is exactly how communists behave.
Nonetheless, communism is where the Democrats are turning amid the coronavirus outbreak on our shores.
I’m calling on the Federal Government to nationalize the medical supply chain.
The Federal Government should immediately use the Defense Production Act to order companies to make gowns, masks and gloves.
Currently, states are competing against other states for supplies.

Just signed my name to bill directing @realdonaldtrump to fully activate his authority to nationalize our medical supply chain. Hospitals are in desperate need of respirators, ventilators, face masks, gloves, gowns and more. It’s WAY past time to do this. #coronavirus #COVIDー19

Every day, I speak to local leaders & hospital officials desperately trying to get supplies and competing against each other! Companies don't know what to do, either.
It's way past time for the president to use the #DefenseProductionAct and nationalize the market for PPE.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio says that coronavirus is “a case for a nationalization of crucial factories and industries.”

To be clear, all of the issues broached by Democrats — such as the desperate need for “respirators, ventilators, face masks, gloves, gowns and more” — are already being addressed by President Donald Trump’s administration via non-communist approaches.
