Mister Peejay: havana_joe:
Really? It was a JOKE, duh... Does "Socialist piece of Capitalistic Communist crap" even make sense to you?

Dude, at this point, it's hard to tell the snark from the serious.


Exactly. The hateful nonsensical gibberish is sadly so common these days. Besides, jokes are supposed to be funny.

ghare: havana_joe: Racist, misogynistic, homophobic, Socialist piece of Capitalistic Communist crap...

Well, the teabaggers are awake now....


Yep. Only a Teabagger could think a story about the struggles of the working poor is eeeeevil, especially on the day that the Christ they claim to be their King of Kings is risen.

It made me cry, but then again, I have a soul.

blacksho89: jso2897: InB4 first asshole ranting about Steinbeck's alleged political views.
Dear asshole: You're an asshole.

So Steinbeck was a socialist. Do you feel you need to offer a defense for socialism? You are free to proceed; that's what the First is all about. Simply stating the facts of Steinbeck's political views is not the action of an asshole. Preemptively playing the victim, however, with your "in before!" is an act of douchebaggery, or maybe just intellectual bankruptcy, or at the least sheer sloth.

Let's try this: Steinbeck was a socialist. How about YOU tell ME what that means?


Like a lot of American authors, Steinbeck was pro-labor in the '20s and '30s, and had some peripheral involvement with Communist-backed labor groups. He also volunteered to work for the CIA in the '50s, while opposing HUAC's witch hunt. So pretty much your standard mid-20th-century liberal Democrat -- pro-labor, anti-totalitarian.

I'll rant all day about his political views, because they were right.

Capitalism is just as evil now as it was then. Ask a migrant picking tomatoes.
