Willing to make an exception: Socialist Alternative Seattle seeking items from Amazon


Hey friends, Socialist Alternative Seattle needs some gifts. They’ve registered with Amazon and have a “wish list” of items you can purchase from the largest internet retailer in the world!

You can’t make this stuff up. What an epic self-awareness fail.

About the Socialist Alternative:

“Socialist Alternative is a national organization fighting in our workplaces, communities, and campuses against the exploitation and injustices people face every day. We are community activists fighting against budget cuts in public services; we are activists campaigning for a $15 an hour minimum wage and fighting, democratic unions; we are people of all colors speaking out against racism and attacks on immigrants, students organizing against tuition hikes and war, women and men fighting sexism and homophobia.

We believe the Republicans and Democrats are both parties of big business, and we are campaigning to build an independent, alternative party of workers and young people to fight for the interests of the millions, not the millionaires.

We see the global capitalist system as the root cause of the economic crisis, poverty, discrimination, war, and environmental destruction. As capitalism moves deeper into crisis, a new generation of workers and youth must join together to take the top 500 corporations into public ownership under democratic control to end the ruling elites’ global competition for profits and power.

We believe the dictatorships that existed in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe were perversions of what socialism is really about. We are for democratic socialism where ordinary people will have control over our daily lives.”

From the socialist’s Facebook page:

“Lots of people have helped us pull this space together! We still need a few things, can you help? Donate things you don’t need anymore OR check out our Amazon wish list. https://www.amazon.com/…/1FG05OEQP…/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1

From their Amazon wish list:

Socialist Alternative is an activist organization. We are workers organizing in our workplaces, students organizing in our schools, and activists organizing in the streets. We are trying to set up our new party center in Seattle to help professionalize our work, can you hlp by purchasing something from our shopoing list”

Some of the items requested include an EARISE M60 Audio PA System (starting at $269.99), a soft cozy shag area rug ($59.00), a 5’ folding portable plastic table ($69.95) and Poo-Pourri Before-You-Go toilet spray ($8.89).

I guess they requested that last item because they are full of you-know-what!

  1. So-How do they divide all these things up? By their Socialist System,ALL their people should have the use of everything they have or get, Or am I wrong? If they’re so against Capitalism,how do they plan to acquire all these items (of which MOST are “Luxury items”,NOT necessities) in large enough volume to be sure EVERYBODY gets their FAIR SHARE? Am I totally wrong about this,or are they TOTAL Hypocrites?

    • truck . . . . Not only are they Hypocrites, but they are down right Dopey. Can you even imagine that they would ask for Poo-Poorri. it’s hard to imagine that any of this group have the problem of “their s _ _ t stinking.” It certainly does make the rest of think they are long on hutzpah, but short on common sense. I wish them only the very worst their endeavor could possibly bring to them. We have seen around the world that Communism WILL * NOT * WORK! Ask the starving peope’s of Venezuela, who have turned to eating their pets because there is no meat in the stores.

  2. Socialist Alternative is another progressive, liberal, left group, and the Democrats crouching behind.

  4. They mentioned Soviet and other Eastern European misguided attempts at wonderful Socialism. What about Mao and the Red Guard? Pol Pot? Hugo Chavez? The Castro brothers? How many people does Socialism have to kill before people are set free? Answer blowing in the wind, i guess.

    • Sorry you left out Venezuela Nicolas Maduro, (Hugo Chavez is dead and gone, thank God), Daniel Ortega-Nicaragua, Fat Boy Kim Jong-Un No. Korea, and the list goes on! Please take note it is just about impossible to uproot a Socialist dictatorship when it is attached to communism.

      • Many I listed are dead and gone, Thank God!!

        Is our Republic, blessed by Divine intervention plus the honor, courage, integrity, and faith(!) of General George Washington and his soldiers, to be lost to Tory’s, hippies, LGBTEIEIO, Communist/Socialist/Liberal/Progressive/atheist, and Deep State enemies of Jesus Christ, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Judeo-Christian foundation of this universe, and blessed nation(s)?

        If so, I will gladly lock and load.

  6. Lets take a look at a statement here… “We are for democratic socialism where ordinary people will have control over our daily lives.” This is the main problem with “democracy” as well, now before anyone goes off on a tangent labeling me as some horrendous thing, examine the statement, if the “ordinary people” are controlled by satanists already, and made into amoral morons & idiots, as has been done in the u.s., and other countries extensively, what is the result of “ordinary people having control over our daily lives”? The result is the satanists rule by proxy, with a layer of protection, without being opposed, and being able to decry anyone that does oppose them as “anti-democratic fascists/totalitarians” or what have you. Also any attempts to combat them will be absorbed by this “idiot armor” so to speak, with the end result being the vile satanists not being impacted by any such offensives, and the citizenry in general being made to take the damage.

    Worse still, is that they will further decay morality & society, and then claim its “what the people asked for”, which may well be what the corrupted people, in their stupor, did ask for (or were convinced they should ask for, depending). Add the anti-morality/individuality outright satanist scheme of socialism/communism to that model, and you get what is happening presently in the u.s., u.k., europe, etc. As seen in the quoted text, the statement is a canard to sound pleasant, appealing to well-meaning but otherwise dangerously ignorant idealism, meant to bait the citizenry in general into support of a cause they haven’t really thought about.

    At least with say, a monarchy, everything is centralized, so in the event a leader becomes corrupted, that corruption can be more easily excised (as opposed to being spread out across a huge bunch of departments & other institutions), and if the leader is righteous, then it is that much harder to corrupt the system as the full bulk of the power is with the singular individual. This doesn’t make it impossible to corrupt the leader by any means, as demonstrated by all the european nations, russia, china, and japan all having rotten corrupted rulers, but it seems to me anyway like it might have been a bigger impediment.

    In any case, why doesn’t this socialist “front” ask for more donations from their CIA or mossad backers instead, one wonders? Obviously the black budget can afford “poo-pourri”. (they probably invested heavily in a supply already, given what they do to the citizenry on a regular basis.) Anyone remember how much the CIA paid for alleged “toilet seats”?

  7. Wonder if that list has a big box of horse manure on it?
    I’m starting to dig that idea of giving a gift that keeps giving…
    And, there’s the added benefit that it would likely go with their decor.

  8. So the definition of an “ordinary person” is a queer mulatto beach hustler with phony birth, education and Social Security records? Is that how we get “democracy”?

    Some things never change. The Rothschilds financed both Zionism and Communism. The banksters don’t care what their rule is called. That’s just fodder for the Eaters.

    In one iteration they don’t allow you to have anything but feed you minimally. In the other they allow you to strive for valuable prizes, then steal the money back in taxes and fees. They let you claim “your” property unless they want it.
