Millennial ‘lifelong socialist’ calls capitalism ‘economic scheme’


OUR TOP STORY THIS HALF HOUR, ALL THIS WEEK FOX BUSINESS THE NETWORK IS SHINING A SPOTLIGHT ON CAPITALISM VERSUS SOCIALISM.>>HERE IN THE UNITED STATES WE ARE ALARMED BY THE NEW CALLS TO ADOPT SOCIALISM IN OUR COUNTRY.>>BOO!>>AMERICA WAS FOUNDED ON LIBERTY AND INDEPENDENCE AND NOT GOVERNMENT COERCION, DOMINATION, AND CONTROL. WE ARE BORN FREE AND WE WILL STAY FREE. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ]>>WE RENEW OUR RESOLVE THAT AMERICA WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] MARIA: THAT WAS PRESIDENT TRUMP DURING THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS BACK IN FEBRUARY. BERNIE SANDERS, ELIZABETH WARREN, KAMALA HARRIS ARE CALLING FOR POLICIES SUCH AS TAX INCREASES ON THE WEALTHY, FREE COLLEGE TUITION, MEDICARE FOR ALL THAT ARE CONSIDERED SOCIALIST POLICIES. JOINING US RIGHT NOW, FOSTER FREEZE ALONG WITH ELIJAH MANLY. GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US. THANKS FOR JOINING US. FOSTER, LET ME KICK IT OFF WITH YOU. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS? YOU’RE A CAPITALIST, I KNOW THAT. CAN YOU TELL US WHY YOU BELIEVE CAPITALISM IS BETTER THAN SOCIALISM?>>LET ME GIVE YOU ONE EXAMPLE HERE. I BROUGHT THIS 100-DOLLAR BILL TO SHOW ELIJAH. I CAN TAKE THIS AND GO TO ALMOST ANY DOCTOR THAT WILL ACCEPT ME, ANY PLACE IN AMERICA. I GIVE THIS $100 TO ELIJAH WHEN HE BECOMES PRESIDENT, HE DECIDES WHERE THIS GOES AND I LOSE CONTROL OF MY MEDICAL CARE. MEDICAL CARE IS PROBABLY MOST IMPORTANT THING TO PEOPLE. THAT’S NUMBER ONE WHY WE SHOULD MAKE SURE WE STAY WITH THE FREEDOM-LOVING SYSTEM WHERE WE CHOOSE. MARIA: THIS IS REALLY A FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY ENJOYING, ELIJAH. AT THE TE THE TELLHE TELLME WHERE YOU ARE ON THIS ISU TELLME WHERE YOU ARE ON THIS ISE AND WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT SOCIALISM?>>FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME, MARIA. I’M A LIFE-LONG SOCIALIST. I BELIEVE IN IT BECAUSE IT’S ABOUT DEMOCRACY IN THE N END. THE CURRENT ECONOMIC SCHEME THAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW CALLED CAPITALISM IS ALL ABOUT EXTRACTING SURPLUS VALUE FROM THE WORKERS AND GIVING IT TO A BUNCH OF CRONIES AT THE TOP. I DON’T THINK HE THAT’S FAIR AT ALL. MARIA: LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THAT. IF YOU’RE WORKING AND YOU MAKE A SALARY, IF YOU’RE A SOCIALIST THEN THAT SALARY IS NOT ALL YOURS. YOU HAVE TO SHARE THAT, IT HAS TO REALLY BE SHARED FOR THE COMMUNITY AND IT’S MORE ABOUT THE COMMUNITY THAN IT WOULD BE WHAT YOU’VE DONE. IF YOU WORK HARD IN YOUR LIFE TO GET SOMEWHERE, WOULDN’T YOU WANT THAT AT THE END OF THE DAY TO BE ABLE TO EARN MONEY FROM THAT AND BENEFIT FROM YOUR HARD WORK? IN SOCIALISM THAT’S NOT THE CASE BECAUSE IT’S REALLY ABOUT THE COMMUNITY, NOT ABOUT YOUR PROSPECT.>>I DISAGREE WITH THAT. SOCIALISM IS ABOUT REAPING THE FRUIT OF YOUR LABOR. UNDER THE CAPITALISM, PRODUCTION, THAT’S NOT THE CASE. THE CROW YOU ANIES AND CEOS — CRONIES AND THE CEOS AT THE TOP REAP THE BENEFITS. BETWEEN 197 # BETWEEN 1978# BETWEEN 1978 AND 2013 WE SAW A 9 HAD HUNDRED% INCREASE HAD HUNDRED PINCREASE HAD HUNDRED PERCREASE HAD HUNDRED PERCEEASE HAD HUNDRED PERCENTSE HAD HUNDRED PERCENT INCREASE FOR THE TOP. MARIA: ALL INCOMES ACTUALLY SAW TAXES GO DOWN WITH THIS MOST RECENT TAX CUT PLAN. ALL INCOME LEVELS. AND COMPANY TALLISM CAD COMPANY TALLISM CAPICOMPANY TALLISM CAPITAMPANY TALLISM CAPITALIANY TALLISM CAPITALISMY TALLISM CAPITALISM HTALLISM CAPITALISM HASLLISM CAPITALISM HAS MISM CAPITALISM HAS MANM CAPITALISM HAS MANAGED TO LIFT MILLIONS OUT OF POVERTY IN THE LAST S 0 LAST 1 0 LAST 100 LAST 10 YEARS.>>WE HAVE 40 MILLION PEOPLE IN POVERTY. I WANT TO MAKE A POINT ABOUT THE TAX CUTS. IT IS A SHORT-TERM ECONOMIC GROWTH PLAN. IN THERM IN LHERM IN LONRM IN LONG-TERM IT WILL BLOW A HOLE IN THE DEFICIT AND MAKE IT HARDER TO FUND SOCIAL PROGRAMS. PRESIDENT TRUMP RAN ON NOT CUTTING SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICAID AND OTHER SOCIAL WELFARE PROGRAMS. THE TAX PLAN TO ME, WHICH IS MORE TO HELP MAKE THE RICH RICHER PLAN, IT’S NOT SUSTAINABLE AND NOT HELPING WORKING PEOPLE AT ALL IN MY OPINION. MARIA: THIS CONVERSATION HAS BEEN SPARKED BECAUSE WE HAVE A PERSISTENT PROBLEM WITH INCOME GAP ACROSS INCOMES. SO WHAT’S YOUR SOLUTION TO LIFTING PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY AND ENSURING THAT ALL INCOMES BENEFIT FROM CAPITALISM?>>WELL, FIRST OF ALL, WE SAY WE HAVE A PROBLEM BECAUSE INCOME INEQUALITY. IF THAT’S A PROBLEM, THEN THE AMERICAN DREAM IS A PROBLEM. THE AMERICAN DREAM ENTITLES EXPANDING PEOPLE’S INCOMES SO IT GROWS LARGER. WHAT WOULD ELIJAH — WHAT WOULD YOU BENEFIT IF BILL GATES’ INCOME WAS SLASHED IN HALF. HE WOULD HAVE LESS TAXES TO PAY FOR THE SAFETY NET WHERE EVERYBODY CAN HAVE MEDICAL CARE, AND THIS IDEA ABOUT DEMOCRACY IS ABSOLUTELY REVERSED. GO TO CUBA. I WAS IN HAVANA FOR FOUR DAYS. AND ALL THE LOCAL WORKERS ARE LIVING IN POVERTY BUT THE LEADERS ARE VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF. I WAS IN RUSSIA IN THE ’70s, THERE’S SPECIAL STORES THAT TOURISTS CAN GO TO THAT EVERYDAY RUSSIANS CAN’T BUT POLITICAL LEADERS COULD. OUR OWN COUNTRY, THE CORRUPTION THAT TAKES PLACE. JOE BIDEN IS ONE OF THE NICEST GUYS BUT HE APPARENTLY WITHHELD $1 BILLION FROM THE UKRAINE UNTIL THEY FIRED THE CHIEF PROSECUTOR BECAUSE THEY WERE GOING AFTER A COMPANY IN WHICH HIS SON GOT $50,000 A MONTH RETAINER. TO ME, THAT’S NOT DEMOCRACY. THAT’S WHERE THE LEADERS GAIN

  1. Life long socialist…..about two years of college 👍😂
    I and my fellow millennials are entitled to what everyone else has had to work hard for. America has never been great, we entitled are gonna make it great 🤨🤮

  2. Sadly many people are misinformed, they think socialism = social programs! Socialism is communism….so many people have been brainwashed. WOW…this kid is completely disconnected from reality

  3. Evidently, this Mil. has never heard of the Great Society and all the other "Social Programs that will lift people out of poverty." Hell, we're talking about programs clear back to FDR's era. And, you know what? They didn't work! What happened? They engrained people into reliance on government for handouts, and nothing more. Send this Dweeb to Venezuela for an extended period of time so he can experience firsthand the "benefits" of Socialism. After he's wiped his butt with his hand or a banana leaf for a while he'll understand the benefits of Capitalism.

  4. Capitalism allowed him to buy the clothes he is wearing, the food he ate today, the home he lives in, the smartphone he probably has and the list goes on and on. Also capitalism has lifted millions of people out of abject poverty around the world. The number in India numbers at least 300 million people. Social programs do not lift people out of poverty.
    It just makes people dependent on government and they only get so much from the government. And the greedy CEO's he is talking pay a huge amount of money in taxes. In fact the current top 1% that the socialist loathes pay 40% of the taxes in this country. The top 10% pay 70%. Under socialism the crony elites are wealthy (actually so much more than the top 1% he loathes and the rest of the country becomes so poor they cannot survive. Lastly 100 million people died under socialism in the last century.

  5. Yeah. Socialism is an economic scheme for politicians to increase their wealth by breaking the backs of the commoners with their ever increasing taxes and penalties.

  6. His 1st statement is key to why they believe socialism is better. He said socialism is like capitalism in the end. There lies the lies his has been fed. He thinks the cronies at the top are the problem so what if all the cronies were politicians? 2nd he is proclaiming "lifelong socialist" He is barely in his mid twenties , if that. History is proven by experience, so socialism in history has NEVER worked and since he is so young he didn't study history, he was indoctrinated into it. Anyone who thinks that the government can make all our decisions for us is delusional. They think politicians look out for our best interest and can be trusted. This is why we have 3 branches and laws that protect our freedoms from them. GO to a real school dude!!!

  7. I became a Communist when I realized that, under capitalism, capitalists own the method of production, and under state capitalism, the government owns the method of production. HOWEVER, under Communism (no government, no monetary system) the method of production is owned by all of the people collectively, and that includes myself. This opens up a wider perspective for me, that capitalists are mere minions, as they have been brainwashed to give the method of production up (including their responsibility too I might add), to a higher power, namely either a government, or a governing rich elite oligarch.

  8. The Alt Left Democrats want to undermine Americans’ current Success with Foolhardy Social and Economic Programs that Represent not just a Redistribution of Wealth from the Rich to the Poor, but even from USA Citizens to Illegal Immigrant Non-Citizens.

  9. It is amazing, over the decades as I have gotten older, to watch young people fall into the same old socialism trap. Socialism fails where ever it is tried. Socialism regardless of how you package it is still socialism. All anyone has to do is look at the countries where there is socialism and compare it the United States. If you are being intellectually honest with yourself you have to realize our form of government is very successful and the best in the world. So why would you want anything less? People must must learn to think for themselves.

  10. So Fox ideas is to bring out a old white to tell us how it has to be. The capitalist have been taken from the masses and living very well from it.

  11. Socialist on TV #21,571 who does not understand economics. Nor is he willing to admit to the overt failure of socialist economics.

  12. This "lifelong liberal" doesnt understand that ppl with money can and will move to a country thats a little friendlier to their money and accomplishments unlike the "lifelong liberals" who are still here in the US after threatening to move but decided to stay so they can all cry us a river. The boat would be one thing we would be happy to pay for so you can make use of your "Huge" river of tears and finally just go away. Please take all your # movements, actors, national socialist antifa and communists w/you! Thx

  13. How can he claim to be a life long socialist, when he has never lived in a socialist country/econony?

  14. Why the socialists not talk about the owners of businesses taking risks to run a company. Who will take these risks under socialism? Owners make more money but also tend to invest more.

  15. Send his restarted behind to Venezuela for a day and I’ll tell u how fast his turd mind will change 😂

  16. This kid is very ignorant. Nothing but jealousy is all I'm hearing. Someone should ask what happens if the business goes under, will he give up his house and money to repay the debt the owner has now? I'm sure he won't, but of course, he deserves everything the owner gets. Called risk vs. benefit. You risk more, you get more. Pretty simple. This generation doesn't seem to think about anything but themselves.

  17. This guy has no idea what he talking about or he is a liar, like most socialists. His math is way off just like Tito's.

  18. Corporations are socialist they get subsidies all the time like the bank bailout so socialism is good for corporations in America and not good for Americans

  19. FDR what's considered one of the best presidents ever he enacted the Social Security Act which is a socialist program the VA affairs medical program is a socialist program Medicare Medicaid are both socialist programs if you don't like socialist programs tell your grandparents to get off Social Security and Medicare see how they react

  20. What democratic socialists are talking about is capitalism and socialism would be good for Americans just like it's good for Europeans they have such compared to us they're happier

  21. People are dying in America because they don't have free healthcare shame on you America every other modern country has free healthcare but us the richest country in the world and ever can provide free healthcare 2 it's Americans come on we're better than that we're at 15th overall in healthcare quality France number one in Quality Healthcare has free healthcare think about that

  22. I love how people try to compare socialism and don't talk about Venezuela so I'm going to talk about a capitalist country only which is Nigeria tell me if capitalism there is working because they are third world country there's good and bad of both

  23. Let's not talk about which are socialist countries Sweden Norway which are doing great talk about those countries when you talk about Democratic

  24. It is a scheme that works and what made america the greatest country. Its a waste of time listening to this ignorant kid.

  25. Someone needs to take the clip of trump saying America will never be a socialist country while Nancy Pelosi keep snaps in the back send that to AOC see how she posts it on her Twitter account

  26. Man this kid is such a fool. This what the fool learned from his Liberal teacher's in what ever college he went to.

  27. This “life long” (19) socialist was found to have misused his campaign funds

    So he’s telling the truth…he loves wasting other people’s money to benefit himself

    Just like every other socialist in history

  28. Why then do people FLEE their Socialist Countries, to go live in Capitalist America, then want to change that system into the Socialist Poverty they run away from.

  29. Why do people from socialist countries want to immigrate to America the capitalist country? Gee I wonder! If you want to share with the community try church, donating time or labor! People in poverty is simply because of there poor decisions! Bill Gates never smoked crack cocaine or methionine!

  30. How are you a "lifelong socialist" if you live in the united States. Hahaha Move to Venezuela then do your little satellite interview. What a joke. The guys asks if he's ever been to Cuba? lol. Dude's probably never left his Moms basement.

  31. It is clear he doesn't understand socialism. He said, "Socialism lifts people out of poverty."
    No, Socialism lowers everyone into poverty.
    I believe wages of working people have been kept low due to politicians and crony capitalists that insist upon importing workers to flood our job market, thereby increasing the supply of labor.

  32. Oh, this is cute. This handsome, welldressed youngman apparently time traveled from the 1800s where workers manual, unskilled labor was a legitimate concern. However, his communist history professors haven't taught him about EVERY FREAKIN SOCIALST EXPERIMENT GONE WRONG SINCE THEN.

    A for effort, young man. You look great, just need to replace everything in your head with reality and you'll have a bright future ahead of you!

  33. THe only system that will ever work is Capitalism. Basic human greed and ego dictates this system. Socialism has never worked anywhere ever. There is room to fix the income gap and the access to opportunity, sure. But Communism and socialism will always leave most of us poor and unhappy.

  34. I have seen the Sunday markets in Mexico, Peru, and Brazil where people are practicing capitalism the same way they did 500 years ago and more.

  35. If upset get some brains and become someone who adds to the country instead of crying and demanding handouts. There is no way out of poverty. Bible says there will always be poor.

  36. A truck or tractor can park in the nose of Elijah …My the beard of Odin!!!! The positive is his hair can be used as a pot scrubber…

  37. Socialism works!
    Look at all of the successful Socialist States: USSR; Cuba; Venezuela; Yugoslavia; Cambodia; North Korea;

  38. If Elijah Manley believes in socialism so much, why hasn't he emigrated to a socialist country like USSR; Cuba; Venezuela; Yugoslavia; Cambodia; North Korea?
    Instead of complaining about how bad Capitalist America is, he should be living in a socialist utopia.

  39. He's still young and doesn't know, wait until he grows up and wants to start a business. His views will completely change. What he is saying sounds he is just regurgitating what his college teachers have told him

  40. There is never democracy in socialist countries. It is always about the using the coercive power of the state to take others possessions! This means guns. Watch a few Venezuela videos!

  41. His views can only be stated by someone who's never lived under the horrors of Socialism and Communism. As a survivor of those systems, I find this Elija is willfully ignorant and, on top of that, has undoubtedly benefitted from Affirmative Action.

  42. Both of these people are idiots. I mena that in the fullest sense. Neither one can truly represent what their side actually means. FOX FAIL!

  43. a lot of the poor class stay poor cuz of the way they spend their money. they invest in things with no return, like expensive cars and rims for that car, instead of upgrading or maintaining their house where it will give them a return. they spend it on close and just spend like a teenager rather than a smart adult. and so they tend to stay in the poor class. u give them more money and they still spend it on bs rather then pay off bills. they already get food stamps and what they save there they spend on entertainment or a new car. now not all are this way but a vast majority are and so why should i work harder so they can continue to live large while i try to save to move up in life!!!

  44. And who is gonna pay for this? Not the rich we have over seas accounts and for you dumb little SJW'S that means the greedy government can't tuch

  45. Manley hates to work, he was brought up on Welfare, food stamps, section 8, free schooling etc why should this parasite change !

  46. Kid just repeats the classic (and long discredited) Marxist analysis. Nothing new here, just same old Communist bull dung.

  47. No one who supports open borders can complain about wage stagnation at the bottom of our society. Massive influx of foreign workers helps tamp down pay for the working class.

  48. a kid describing socialism vs capitalism defending socialism didn't take basic economics…see Thomas Seoul see any history book on a successful socialist society.

  49. What we need is a happy medium. Both full capitalism and full socialism are schemes. We praise our system like it's a bible it's ridiculous.

  50. Imagine actually believing you would gain democratic freedoms in a socialist society… Do these brainless kids even understand the definitions?

  51. Dumbass evidently can't read the basic definition of socialism. It's easy being a socialist in America, try being a capitalist in Cuba or Venezuela…..our education system is broken…

  52. Remember capitalism is fine with socialism when the wages are so low for average worker at Wallmart and McDonalds that the companies instruct their employees how to get foodstamps and other benefits.

  53. Comment section is just boomers mindlessly complaining about those who are negatively affected by capitalism. Wealth inequality is a huge problem and the wealthy using money to buy our politicians to prevent economic reform to benefit the worker shows we have a corrupt and unjust system

  54. So, this lazy, entitled, spoiled brat has a lifelong selfishness to believe that someone else needs to pay for his lifestyle? No big surprise there.

  55. You can tell this kid has never run a business and only maybe held a job at Mcdonalds and bitched the entire time about the CEO making more than him and the other kid working the till.

  56. This old white guy killed half of my brain cells. He clearly has no idea what socialism is or how it works. Mainstream media is trash.

  57. I’d like the comment that someone made about North Korea taking the factors to say that to my face because that’s all the cowards of the right wing will do fight on the keyboard but not in my face because they don’t have an argument and they don’t even have any courage
