A BuzzFeed editor has set her Twitter account to private, after a tweet declaring “all I want for Christmas is full communism now” did not go as she planned.
BuzzFeedUK Science Editor Kelly Oakes, the editor behind the reprehensible tweet, was quickly called out by a swarm of people — in multiple languages.
“Oh my god, what a joke,” Federalist contributor Erielle Davidson tweeted in Russian.
Others pointed out the horror of living under Communist rule.
Sounds like u have never lived under it! Some of us have.

Ever notice no one is escaping capitalistic democracies for communist states? Yet people have always fled communist states for free nations. Feel free to move to North Korea, Cuba, China or Venezuela.

Approximately 100 million people are believed to have been killed by Communist regimes across the globe.
"All I want for Christmas
is a gun in my cheek,
gun in my cheek,
oh it in my cheek
All I want for Christmas
is a gun in my cheek-
so I can mumble out
'HAPPY CHRISTMAS COMRADE!'
'PRAISE THE WORKER!'
'MY DOCUMENTS ARE RIGHT HERE!'
'PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME!'"

In The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression, Stéphane Courtois estimates the number of people killed by Communism as follows:
- 65 million in the People’s Republic of China
- 20 million in the Soviet Union
- 2 million in Cambodia
- 2 million in North Korea
- 1.7 million in Ethiopia
- 1.5 million in Afghanistan
- 1 million in the Eastern Bloc
- 1 million in Vietnam
- 150,000 in Latin America
- 10,000 deaths “resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power.”
Economic historian Michael Ellman has argued that the book’s estimate of “at least 500,000” deaths during the Soviet famine of 1946–48 “is formulated in an extremely conservative way, since the actual number of victims was much larger.” He believes there may have been as many as 1,500,000 deaths, which means the estimates could be higher than Courtois’ estimation.
Though Oakes is a science editor at BuzzFeed, she also dabbles in political content and news. According to her bio on LinkedIn, she has “reported on topics from Brexit to air pollution to ADHD and written essays, quizzes and lists on topics from being a woman in physics to the heat death of the universe.”
The Imperial College London graduate’s most recent article is titled, “13 Weird Facts That Will Make You Say “Huh, Interesting.”
Big League Politics has reached out to BuzzFeed for comment, but did not receive a response by time of publishing.
SICK: NeverTrump Political Operative Calls to Doxx NUNS For Appearing at Ohio MAGA Rally
Never Trump is doxxing Catholic nuns for supporting Trump.
A Never Trump ex-Republican and liberal campaign consultant called for a doxxing operation to be conducted against Catholic nuns who were seen on camera in attendance at one of President Donald Trump’s ‘MAGA’ rallies in Ohio.
Peter Vroom, is self identifying “ex Republican” campaign consultant. He identifies himself as the CEO of Convergence Event Technology. He took aim at a group of Catholic nuns affiliated with the Children of Mary religious order in a set of Saturday tweets.
Vroom slammed the sisters’ support of the President- who has governed as the most pro-life President in a generation- as “bizarre and disgusting.”
Vroom went on to publish personal information from the sisters’ religious order’s website, tacitly encouraging them to be doxxed.
Vroom had earlier tried to shame a nun for not wearing a face mask, ignoring that she was speaking to a crowd at the event.
Receiving the support of any professed religious (a Catholic term for those such as nuns, friars and monks)- who have sworn vows of poverty, obedience, and chastity- should be considered an honor for any political candidate.
Thankfully, there’s not much that a good little corporate leftist such as Vroom can really do to punish those who have renounced all worldly possessions. He was roundly ratioed in response his Twitter doxxing campaign, with more than seven thousand responses to his initial call to publicize the nuns’ personal information.
