No Brian S. Brown - You have no clue what socialism is

Brian S. Brown, on behalf of the hate group, International Organization for the Family, has a new dollar-desire out today with the subject line The right to abortion for "trans females." Brown correctly notes that transgender women are not capable of getting pregnant and, thus, do not require access to abortion. The subject line is just to get attention for:
“Help IOF” means send me some money!
It is Brown's idea of socialism that gets my attention:
That is what socialism is – substituting the right of individuals to control their own destiny with decisions of the state acting on behalf of "the collective" to redirect society beliefs and policies.

There is a priceless irony that after witnessing this full-on embrace of socialism, hyped by breathless media praise from the leftist mainstream media, that one of the readings from this past Sunday in the Catholic faith in the United States was from St. Paul's Epistle to the Galatians: "For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. For you were called for freedom, brothers and sisters."
No sir. That is not what socialism is. No! Socialism means government ownership of the means of production. Even Bernie Sanders is not really a socialist. To quote Paul Krugman, Sanders' “embrace of the label is really more about branding (“I’m anti-establishment!”) than substance.”

Preceding the quote from Brown about socialism is this BS:
If you take everything together, what the Democrats are essentially offering the American people is for government to take over the role of individuals concerning decision-making in a vast array of circumstances. They think that government will make better decisions than average people will make concerning their health care; better decisions than parents will make in terms of the education of their children and exposing them to "gender identity" policies and the LGBT agenda; better decisions than taxpayers will make in terms of immigration and other policies; better decisions than law enforcement officers make in terms of criminal justice practices; and better decisions than average citizens will make in terms of gun ownership.
Children should be exposed to scientific realities. It is the reason that public schools teach Evolution as conceived by Charles Darwin rather than some form of creationism. Explaining to children that sexual orientation and gender identity are not choices might be fundamental to their future success in a diverse society. But all this is nonsense. What Brown is really saying is that Republicans make decisions that he likes. He wants the Catholic Church's various teachings to be imposed on public school curricula. And:
Mr, Brown should be more careful. IOF is an assumed name of the Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society. That organization is a 501(c)3 which means that donations are tax deductible. It also means that political activities are prohibited. Brown could end up with a 501(c)4 with donations not being tax deductible.

I don't think that would apocalyptic. My theory — supported by considerable evidence — is that Howard Center receives an enormous amount of money from Russian conservatives, some of whom are on the Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions list. This is the money that Howard Center uses to fund its “world congresses.”

I also theorize that those same people who are paying Brian S. Brown who did not take a salary from either National Organization for Marriage or Howard Center in 2017. That is an issue for another day.
