Your Children Will Be Commies! Er, Wait, They’ll Be Transgendered Commies!

Oh, The Red Menace™! Ever present in my life. “America’s” biggest fear and greatest propaganda, the communists under the bed, oh my! Every single time I have thought that the whole fear of a commie had finally died off, it managed to appear again, ever a revenant. There was always a religious zealot or a bigoted conservative willing to reach into the closet and dust off the Red Bogeyman, conveniently updated with whatever was current or trending in culture for any given year. Today, I see absolutely nothing has changed. Seriously, all you bigoted, hateful, conservative Christian asswipes need to come up with a new shtick. The whole red menace thing is unbelievably old, and it’s now incredibly inaccurate, ennit? Really, at least try to keep up with the news, and please, not Fox.

Kevin Swanson has decided that the current Red Bogeyman is Transgendered Commies! Yes, that’s right. All children in public schools will be transformed into transgender commies, this is the new agenda™. I hadn’t received any agenda update, perhaps this one is only going out to idiots.

“The state has an agenda with your children,” he warned. “I realize that this may sound a little bit hyperbolic, it may sound [like] a little bit of an exaggeration—I don’t think it is, because I think if you begin to see the trajectory of where things have gone and you just draw it out for the next five, six, eight years, you’re going to find this is the agenda.”

“The goals of the educational program for your kids in the public schools,” Swanson continued, “the goals of the world for your children is that your kids be transgendered and communist by 20 years of age.”

“Of course this is the agenda,” he said. “Parents, just get serious about it. Do you want your kids transgendered and communist at 18 years of age? Is that your goal? If it isn’t, then maybe you ought to bring a different vision into the education of your children.”

Why yes, that does sound hyperbolic, Kevin. It also sounds downright moronic. You won’t be finding cis children wanting to be anything other than what they are, and you won’t find trans children wanting to be anything other than what they are. It’s quite simple, really. I do think you need to be a bit more specific about the whole transgender-communist connection, what exactly do you have in that department? How does the ever evil transagenda aid in creating more commies? I ask, because I don’t know if you have noticed, but trans people haven’t exactly had an easy time when it comes to being accepted, on both an individual and societal basis. I really don’t think this would be the communist plot of choice.

I remember when there was an attempt to paint The Beatles, and rock and pop music generally with the communist brush, but at least they had a veneer of a connection – mind control! Looseness, immorality, *gasp* sex! I am not getting the connection here. I think it will be a very long time before there are sufficient numbers of transgender commies to make up a conquering army, if that’s what you had in mind. Also, Kevin, make up your fucking mind, from one sentence to the next – are the kids going to turn evil when they are 20 years old, or 18 years old? Details matter, y’know. Also, it’s rather convenient you put the line at adult ages. I really think you ought to just stick with the immoral, godless commie thing. It’s worked for all these decades.

    The US’ attitude toward communism made me look at it seriously. Anything that the US plutocracy is so against, that’s quite a recommendation.

    Turns out I don’t like it. But I sure don’t like capitalism.

    Most versions of communism implemented in the real world have absolutely nothing to do with actual communism. Not on a large scale, at least.

  3. says

    rq, true. Communism can work beautifully, on paper. Gets more than a bit messy when you drag people into it.

    Yeah, communism’s a good idea but I’m afraid it’s like ideal anarchism. We can’t all just get along. For one thing, there are rapacious assholes that are going to want to rule and acquire unfair amounts of stuff. They won’t take “oh, behave” for an answer.

    Speaking of not all getting along, I will confess as to being boggled over the ‘new’ commie scare -- transgender! Out of all the commie plots I have lived through, honestly, this one makes the very least sense. No sense at all. It’s just picking one thing the cons know will most effectively scare all the fucking idiots: “oh, all the kids will want to be transgender, it’s so cool!”

    Fortunately, generations of kids have rolled their eyes at this bullshit, but Christ knows, transgender people do not need yet more hate aimed their way.

    The right wing also has an agenda for your children. They want cheap and obedient labor and cannon fodder.

    Read it and got a (hardly original) thought: Maybe, deep down, one reason for the persecution is making an example out of transgender people, in order to intimidate people to obey the theocrats.

    We’re definitely​ not recruiting in high schools to convert people into becoming transgender so that they then might become part of the red horde, though. Don’t need to. For some reason people getting screwed over by an unjust society start thinking about how that society is screwing them over in other ways too.

  9. Dunc says

    It’s simple once you understand that these people care more about the emotional valence of words than their actual meanings. To them, communist = bad, and transgender = bad, therefore communist = transgender.

    Yikes! He forgot about the manditory gay marriages. If everyone is transgendered, how are us communists going to enforce the required gay marriages? This just sounds messy all-around.

  11. rq says

    I’m starting to think that, in the end, it’s going to be a war between the gay agenda and the red menace. Armaggedddooonnn!
