'Marxian economist' professor doesn't blame Trump for coronavirus 'mess.' He blames capitalism.

  • Professor Richard Wolff blamed capitalism for the failures of the handling of coronavirus in America.
  • Young American Against Socialism responded by criticizing the American Left for using this ciris to exploit the American Public for political advancement.
While the country’s frontline workers and leaders are working tirelessly to combat the effects of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, a visiting professor at The New School, a university in New York City, has blamed capitalism for the failure in handling the coronavirus outbreak.

In a video published March 31, Richard Wolff, a well-known professor of economics, claims that capitalism is to blame for the “mess" of coronavirus.

“Capitalism is stumbling all over itself. It’s proving it isn’t good for the mass of people. It made a mess of [coronavirus],” Wolff states.

The video was published on YouTube by Democracy At Work, a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Wolff. The organization “analyzes capitalism critically as a systemic problem” according to its website.

Wolff also argues, in an article titled “Coronavirus: A Capitalist Crisis,” that President Donald Trump’s “blame” for the coronavirus outbreak on anything other than a failed capitalist system is "racist, divisive, and ignorant."

“Trump, his government, and the system he serves need to blame the Corona catastrophe in the United States on something other than U.S. capitalism,” Wolff says, “Official blame targets what Trump calls ‘the Chinese virus.’ Yet such blaming is racist, divisive, and ignorant.”

Wolff has taught economics for decades. He has taught at Yale University, the University of Paris, and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

Throughout his career, Wolff has earned the distinction as a “Marxian Economist,” supporting ideology Karl Marx wrote about in The Communist Manifesto. Additionally, he is even credited as being one of the “greats of contemporary Marxian political economy.” He’s among 21 economists and professors to be considered a “great” of Marxist ideology.

Wolff did not respond to Campus Reform’s request for comment in time for publication.

Campus Reform reached out to Young Americans Against Socialism (YAAS) to speak about the implications of this line of thinking from Wolff.

Morgan Zegers, founder and CEO of YAAS, told Campus Reform that using a crisis like the COVID-19 outbreak to “normalize” socialist policies is nothing new for the American Left.

"Socialists love a good crisis. Growing feelings of fear and uncertainty present socialists with the opportunity to normalize their radical policies in the eyes of the general population,” Zegers told Campus Reform, “ Just like many socialist leaders and movements before them, the American left has been quick to seize the opportunity to push their...

He's right! When the communists wanted to end the pandemic, they simply declared it over, and POOF! No more cases! The hard work of burying those non-cases, still continues, however...

What a LOON! Is he mad that Uncle B.S. aka., Bernie Sanders caved to Joe and collected his Millions from the DNC? Does he see the smoke of Socialism in America Fading away? When we come out of this contrived Medical Bullcshift Black Ops, Deep State False Flag, we should all be packing heat and carrying pitchforks, Torches, or PIKES and FLAMETHROWERS along with a good length of frigging ROPE.
