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.
Teacher’s Union President Claims It is ‘White Privilege’ to Worry about Children Committing Suicide During School Closures
Scott Wilson, who serves as president of the Pasco Association of Educators in the state of Washington, claimed on a Zoom call earlier this month that it is “white supremacy” to consider reopening public schools and any concerns over children committing suicides while isolated and away from school is “white privilege.”
Additionally, Wilson claimed that reopening schools would be the equivalent of letting rioters storm into the U.S. Capitol.
“There are decisions to be made. You stand on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol as people break down barriers and head to the doors. Do you follow?” Wilson asked on the call. “You stand at the governor’s mansion. The crowd breaks down barriers to enter the grounds. Do you follow? Or do you choose a different way? We must not ignore the culture of white supremacy and white privilege.”
“We speak of equity, we speak of care of all students, yet we listen and attend to voices saying ‘Reopen everything, I’m free to breathe,’ supporting white privilege,” Wilson continued.
“[Parents] complain their children are suicidal without school or sports. As a father, daily surviving the suicide of my son, I find these statements ignorant and another expression of white privilege,” Wilson said, demonstrating his complete lack of concern of the children’s safety.

How can they say it's safe to reopen schools when they can't even meet in person to discuss it?

Big League Politics has reported on teachers claiming it is racist to want to open schools.
North Carolina teacher Justin Parmenter, who serves on the board of directors for the North Carolina Association of Education (NCAE), is saying that any parent who wants their child to return to school is guilty of “white privilege.”
“White folks threatening to pull their kids out of public schools if those schools don’t open those doors during a pandemic that is disproportionately impacting communities of color = weaponized white privilege,” he wrote in a Twitter post on Dec. 19.
“Using disproportionate wealth and power to try to impact policy in this manner is the definition of white privilege,” Parmenter wrote in a tweet from Dec. 20.
Parmenter is an elementary-school teacher who revels in indoctrinating his students to his political agenda, as NC’s Education First Alliance has exposed.
“Why do some people claim that teachers should not be political? In what ways is that stance political? How do you respond when people tell you that teaching should not be political?” Parmeter wrote in a Twitter post on Oct. 18.
He believes in indoctrinating children to his political beliefs so strongly that he even hosted a workshop encouraging other teachers to do so shortly before the election…
Unless the people come together and reject this insanity pushed by soulless leftists, the pandemic will mean a permanent shuttering of American life.
The radical Left hates white people, and their dehumanizing rhetoric could lead to genocide if this wicked ideology is not defeated.
