A New Game From Hasbro: MONOPOLY SOCIALISM: Winning is For Capitalists!

Ok ok…….I just could NOT resist writing about this!  And I’m sure that the owner of Hasbro is not a Leftist donor for the Democratic Socialists!

Can you imagine inviting Comrade Bernie over for dinner, and then bringing out this game as an after dinner surprise? HAHAHA…….Ok, I’ll stop.

Socialism Themed Monopoly Divides The Internet

Hasbro, the makers of the iconic family game Monopoly, released a new satirical socialist-themed spin on the old classic, drawing vocal reactions from the left and the right.

Monopoly is a vastly popular game that challenges players to engage in pretend capitalism, purchasing the most “property” as they seek to monopolize the board. Hasbro recently released a spinoff version of the game called Monopoly: Socialism, which mocks the anti-capitalist economic system. A professor from Rutgers University went viral on Thursday when he purchased the game and posted a series of 20 tweets critiquing its negative depiction of socialism, creating a flurry of online debate.

Many conservatives chimed in to the discussion, taking advantage of the moment to discuss some of socialism’s failures. Author and Townhall senior columnist Kurt Schlichter highlighted how many people have died under redistributionist forms of government.

Conservative documentary maker and political pundit Dinesh D’Souza reminded his Twitter following of socialism’s negative economic effects.

However, not everybody found the parody game to be so insightful. Some on the left alleged that it doesn’t do enough to “understand” socialism and how it might theoretically work.

Other pundits joined the conversation to slam those who play the game. AV columnist Reid McCarter published an article suggesting that it’s made “by dipshits for dipshits.”

Professor Nick Kapur, who seems to have made the parody Monopoly go viral in the first place, agrees with McCarter. According to him, the only possible target audience for such a game is “hate-filled Boomers raised during the Cold War.” source

I am NOT hate filled. I just think that Capitalism is one of things which has made America great from the beginning.  Sadly, I think that Atheists, Socialists and God-haters in general have almost destroyed our country.

Well, I think that the timing of bringing this version of the iconic game out is simply brilliant!

I’ll stick with Capitalism, thank you very much 🙂
