When Pope Francis spoke out against the greed of capitalism, the propaganda machine; Fox Noise, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, all the hatemongers, who pander to poor bigots, who can’t figure out why they can’t make ends meet, while the propagandists are becoming richer by the day, yes, under this Socialism they claim exists in the nation now. When it’s FAR from it. So funny, the so called “Christians” have now gone completely bonkers. In the old days, a Pope spoke, and that was respected. Now, he’s treated just like Barack Obama, as a danger to society, when greed is actually the biggest danger we face. It destroyed the economic system in 2007-2008, and this “radical nigger” who took office, only stabilized the economy, but that is all forgotten now. Now the right wing hate machine attacks the Pope, and that says a lot about the stupidity of poor people, whom this man like the President has only been trying to help.
I’m a BIG critic of my Church when it comes to the pedophile priests, protected by John Paul, Ratzinger and every single one before them. The jury is still out on Pope Francis, because until I see a crack down on criminals raping children and getting away with it because they have a collar, I’m going to remain on the fence. However, Levin and Limbaugh calling the Holy Father a Marxist is very telling of the viciousness they embody, thanks to “good guy” President Reagan, who was the face of greed, with a smile in America during the 1980s, when the poor got hoodwinked into propaganda called “trickle down economics.” Trust me, what you get on the trickle end isn’t anything but urine!
In a new interview, Pope Francis responded to critics who call his stance on capitalism “Marxist,” saying that the political and economic philosophy is flat “wrong.” “Marxist ideology is wrong,” the Pope told the Italian newspaper La Stampa
in an interview published on Saturday. “But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended.”
Earlier this month, the conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh blasted the pontiff, calling his latest major writing, an apostolic exhortation called Evangelii Gaudium, “pure Marxism.” And Sarah Palin also defiled the Holy Father by calling him a “Liberal,” then later apologizing. But Limbaugh and Levin to this day never get called on their bigotry or hatred, so they won’t be doing so. How vile of right wingers to attack a man they once hailed the office of the Holy See to be off limits in political outrage and debate.
“It’s sad because this Pope makes it very clear he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to capitalism and socialism and so forth,” Limbaugh said.
Pope Francis told La Stampa that, “there is nothing in the Exhortation that cannot be found in the social Doctrine of the Church.” The 50,000-word statement calls for church reform and castigates elements of modern capitalism.
Francis – the first pope ever to hail from Latin America, (and that’s where the real hatred comes from, don’t be fooled),where he worked on behalf of the poor in his native Argentina – warned in “Evangelii” that the “idolatry of money” would lead to a “new tyranny.”
The Pope also blasted “trickle-down economics,” saying the theory “expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power.”
The Pope’s critique of capitalism thrilled many liberal Catholics, who have long called on church leaders to spend more time and energy on protecting the poor from economic inequalities.
The real fight in society is these older people who simply hate people of color having a voice, much less offices of power. Note, how brave they were through two world wars, but the minute the darky hit the White House and the Brownie hit the Vatican, they all became, “scares me!”
