BuzzFeed Editor: ‘All I Want for Christmas is Full Communism Now’

Published

on

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.

Approximately 100 million people are believed to have been killed by Communist regimes across the globe.

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.

Green-Haired Freak Steals, Spits on MAGA Hat to Fight So-Called Racism

Published

Another day, another American harassed in public for supporting the duly elected President Donald J. Trump.

“17-year-old Ashton Hess was assaulted and had his hat spat on by an angry green haired “non-binary” person in Seattle,” wrote The Scoop, sharing a video on Twitter.

WATCH:

“This non-binary” person assaulted a 17-year-old and spat on his MAGA hat,” the caption in the video says.

Non-binary means that the person identifies neither as a man nor a woman.

Most of the video shows Hess chasing after the suspect, named Ethan Jackson, who took credit for the attack on Twitter.

“Take your racist ass and get the f*ck out of this state,” Jackson yells at one point in the video. “You’re not welcome here.”

Jackson said on Twitter that he was “fighting racist and nationalist propaganda.”

This attack comes on the heels of a similar one in a San Antonio, TX Whataburger, where a teen had a drink thrown in his face by a 30-year old man for wearing a MAGA hat in public.

Big League Politics reported:

Kino Jimenez ruined the evening of Hunter Richards and his friends, who were enjoying a late night meal at Whataburger when he stole Richards’ MAGA hat, cursed him out, and left the restaurant in huff.”

BLP Passage Ends.

Donald Trump Jr. was able to secure a new MAGA hat – signed by the President – for Richards after the Texas assault. Perhaps the same can be done Hess.
