Reality Stinks: Marxist Group Disbands After Members Realize They're Not Actually Communists

If you're an employer, you might want to be wary of résumés featuring an education from Swarthmore College, a liberal arts school (as if that wasn't warning enough).

A Marxist student group at the Pennsylvania institution recently disbanded after members realized none of them fit the required victim-hood requirements for being Communists.

Campus Reform has more:

A Marxist student group at Swarthmore College disbanded itself earlier this year after realizing that its members were too rich and too white to be real commies.

According to screenshots confidentially provided to Campus Reform by an individual with access to the group’s private Facebook page, the demise of the Swarthmore Anti-Capitalist Collective (SACC) came in the wake of a farewell letter from a member who had decided the group could never be an effective proponent of “unproblematized anticapitalist politics” due to its “history of abuse, racism, and even classism.”

“From my understanding SACC disbanded because they realized the makeup and tactics of their group was at odds with their espoused principles,” Swarthmore Conservative Society President Gilbert Guerra told Campus Reform. “Their main support base was middle-upper class white kids who enjoy jogging.”

The hilarious term "unproblematized anticapitalist politics" translates roughly to "We can't seem to give up Apple products, running water or electricity." The real irony here is that the farewell was posted on Facebook, a platform for free speech not available in any communist nation. Whoops.

Guess those poor, over-privileged college kids will have to find some other way to be victims. 

Stay alert. Stay alive.
