People are calling Candi CdeBaca a Communist. She'd rather be called an anarchist.

An in-depth Q&A with the self-described radical leftist just elected to Denver's City Council

On April 10, Candi CdeBaca’s 33rd birthday, Denver’s second “bomb cyclone” of the year brought snow and heavy wind, and knocked out power in some areas, including at CdeBaca’s house in Elyria-Swansea. When CdeBaca, then a Denver City Council candidate, finally got power back and turned on her phone, she saw she had an unusually high number of missed calls and messages. Birthday wishes, she assumed.

“There was a death threat,” she said. “There were two of them within an hour. One of them said, ‘I was trained to kill commie shit like you.’”

The context: At a candidate forum on April 7, CdeBaca offered some remarks that, to many, sounded like she was advocating a Communist form of government.

“I don’t believe that our current economic system actually works. Capitalism, by design, is extractive, and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited,” she said. “I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources.

1. Cowards make death threats.

Something incredibly despicable about some asshole sending death threats behind a veil of anonymity. I assume they find their courage through the barrel of a gun. Guns weaponize ignorance. There's no having a conversation with people willing to stoop so low. No chance at describing the differences between ideological systems, economics and political nuances. Nope just some stupid asshole armed with self-righteous rage and a finger pull away from satisfying their lust for blood.

"I was trained to kill commie shit like you". I assume they meant the US military. Biggest god-damned, bloated budget in the world and they still turn out ignorant shits like this. If that's what they got out of their service, then no thank you. We don't need their kind of help. They only cause us more problems and more grief.
