Twitter proletariat rise up against Marco Rubio after FL senator claims ‘new Marxism’ uses identity politics to divide people
The Republican lawmaker, a Cuban-American whose parents immigrated to Miami, often recounts how his family fled their homeland to escape from socialism. According to Rubio, the same alleged oppression that exists in Cuba has arrived on America’s shores – under the guise of identity politics.
“The old Marxism used class warfare to divide people. The new Marxism uses identity politics. But the goal is the same,” the Florida senator tweeted on Saturday.
Marxism divides people into either oppressors or victims, calls for the overthrow an “evil” system & then seizes complete power in the name of “fairness”

The provocative political analysis caused Twitter leftists to grab their pitchforks, as a colorful array of verified accounts fired off retaliatory screeds at the senator.
The official account of the Socialist Party of Great Britain said Rubio was clearly “ignorant” of what Marxism really advocates for.
“Marxist socialism is fundamentally about a society with no ruling class. That means no oppressors and no oppressed. You only get that with an economy like capitalism,” the political party wrote.
Only someone ignorant as to what Marxism is would say that it “divides people into either oppressors or victims”. Marxist socialism is fundamentally about a society with no ruling class. That means no oppressors and no oppressed. You only get that with an economy like capitalism.

Others insisted that Rubio’s “conservative disinformation” was the real culprit responsible for dividing people.
The Florida lawmaker was hyperventilating over nothing, numerous commenters argued.

The ideological internet battle caused both capitalism and Marxism to trend, leading some e-Bolshies to rejoice that their time had come.

Rubio has become increasingly vocal about the socialist threat facing the United States. On Friday, he argued in a speech that Marxism, disguised as identity politics and social justice, was infiltrating American institutions such as schools, businesses and even government agencies. He warned that Marxism “is not dead” and that those who subscribe to its doctrine have found “new titles” in order to go undetected.
“If we don’t confront this now, call it for what it is and defeat it, it will destroy this country and everything that has made it special,” the senator said during the Faith & Freedom Road to Majority conference in Florida.
