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.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax

Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.

Published

on

Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.

Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.

But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.

“The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
