TRIGGERED: Anti-Socialist Parody of ‘Monopoly’ Board Game Enrages Leftist History Professor

This lefty academic is really angry about a ‘Monopoly’ board game parody.

Published

on

A parody of “Monopoly” that pokes fun at the failed economic policies of socialism has triggered a university academic who took to Twitter to demonstrate his lack of self-awareness and humor.

Nick Kapur, who works as an Assistant Professor of History at Rutgers University–Camden, bought the game, Monopoly Socialism just to criticize it on social media.

First, he was triggered by the game’s tag line.

Then, he was triggered by the imagery used on the cover.

He was confused by the implication made by the game’s player icons, which imply that socialism holds back technological progress.

Kapur was offended by the thought that schools and hospitals run by government could possibly be criticized.

He was angered by the game’s digs at veganism and health food fads.

Kapur felt that someone should have told the game’s creators that environmentalism is a sacred cow.

He went on to criticize the game on technical terms, apparently not being able to realize that the game is a parody meant to be tongue-in-cheek.

The simple points that socialism is predicated on graft and tends to run out of money are completely lost upon him.

He went onto post more tidbits from the game and complain further about it.

He concluded his lengthy rant by saying that the original game of Monopoly is dumb and played out anyway, because it’s not modern and European enough.

Unfortunately for Kapur, his Twitter thread may have backfired as it alerted many interested consumers to the game and will likely end up boosting its sales.

Kapur, who is the author of “Japan at the Crossroads: Conflict and Compromise after Anpo,” is probably perturbed by the fact that far more people will play this parody game than will ever pick up his book . Monopoly Socialism is available for sale for $19.99 here.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security

The royal celebrities will foot the bill.

Published

on

President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.

The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.

Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.

When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.

The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
