The Commie Pope . . .

By Thomas DiLorenzo

. . . has revealed himself once again to be no different from all his fellow Jesuits:  a feeble-minded pop-Marxist ideologue hiding behind a priest’s collar whose real “bible” is The Communist Manifesto.  He did it this time by pontificating that Donald Trump is in his opinion “not a Christian” because he opposes unlimited immigration of welfare parasites.
It has long been part of the program of the hardcore Marxist Left to internationalize welfare to force the more productive, capitalist countries to (hopefully) bankrupt themselves by forcing their taxpayers to open up their bank accounts to all the welfare parasites on the planet, from anywhere and everywhere.  If the little commie from Argentina in the funny hat who rides around in that souped-up golf cart was serious about the wellbeing of immigrants, he would share some of the Vatican’s billions with them, perhaps even by selling off some of his church’s vast real estate holdings in Italy.  (He is said to be the biggest real estate owner in all of Italy). And if he was really opposed to “building walls,” he would not live behind the giant wall that surrounds his home, the Vatican.

  1. Communism has its roots in Christianity. In his 1st volume of 'An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought', Rothbard writes of the first known attempt at communism in 16th century Munster:

    {This compulsory communism and reign of terror was carried out in the name of community and Christian "love." All this communization was considered the first giant steps toward total egalitarian communism, where, as Rothmann put it, "all things were to be in common, there was to be no private property and nobody was to do any more work, but simply trust in God." The workless part, of course, somehow never arrived.}

    It all ended badly. If one cares to read this story, it's online here:

    Rothbard details the slippery slope that occurs when the desperate throngs allow hope, envy, and the "disutility of labor" to cloud their judgement in favor of the promises of the power-seekers.
